15. Women’s Tournament Leads to Big Things
When WWE produced the Cruiserweight Classic, and the creation of the new Cruiserweight Division off the back of it, many fans dreamed of a similar tournament featuring some of the best women from around the world. That dream turned somewhat to reality with the rumors (as yet it’s not been officially announced) that just such a tournament would take place in the early part of the year.
According to some of the rumors, WWE has actually reached out to some of the top female indy wrestlers in the world to take part in the as yet unnamed event. Names like Heidi Lovelace, Kimber Lee, Nixon Newell, Deonna Purrazzo and Rachel Ellering have all been touted for the event, and all of them could easily become a part of the WWE Women’s roster in the future. When you look at promotions like SHIMMER in the U.S. and Stardom in Japan there are so many talented female wrestlers around who could become part of the tournament.
If the whole idea plays out in a similar way to the CWC, which, with the eventual creation of 205 Live, has produced some great matches and has spotlighted some of the most talented smaller wrestlers in the entire world. The women’s tournament should lead to a dedicated show for the current women of the WWE roster, and the new women who will come into the company off the back of the tournament.
If you thought the Women’s Revolution had already taken place, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
