When you think of top names in WWE’s Women’s division; Bayley, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair would undoubtedly be in pretty much everyone’s top 10 list.
They’re known as the 4 Horsewomen of WWE and much like the male version that ruled the wrestling world in the 80s, these 4 women have been the focal point of their division for quite some time now. With that being said, the division certainly wouldn’t be the same without them.
While I’m getting all sweet and sentimental with the words, this article is not intended to discredit all the hard work put in by the rest of the women on WWE’s roster. On the contrary, this article was written to highlight the 4 superstars who’d fill the void if the 4 Horsewomen weren’t around.
Asuka spent the entirety of her run in NXT as an unstoppable, undefeated force to be reckoned with. Not long after that, she’d make her debut on the main roster and continue her reign of dominance.
While Asuka’s undefeated streak would eventually come to an end at WrestleMania 34, she’d go on to achieve massive success in both the singles and tag team division.
Moreover, The Empress has managed to become a success without doing much talking. If you’ve seen Asuka perform, you’d agree that she doesn’t really need to do much chit-chat, anyway. She’s captured the hearts and admiration of the WWE Universe with her renowned wrestling ability.
The Empress of Tomorrow has been out of action for some time now. Far too long, to be perfectly honest. If the rumors are accurate and Asuka is on the injured list, here’s to hoping for a speedy recovery and an epic return.
While Naomi gets a fair amount of praise for her athletic ability, she could quite honestly be the most underrated superstar on the WWE roster.
She had a couple of stints as the Smackdown Women’s Champion back in 2017, but when factoring in how much love she gets from the WWE Universe and the special connection she has with younger viewers, it may come as a huge shock that she hasn’t held a title since then.
She’s currently involved in a storyline with Sonya Deville. Compared to sitting in catering for what seemed like months on end, this is quite an upgrade for the two-time Smackdown Women’s Champion.
However, if this storyline comes to an end and Naomi’s push takes a trip to nowheresville yet again, you can rest assured it will only be a matter of time before #naomideservesbetter trends on the Twitter machine.
Some claim she’s overrated, others argue that she gets way too much hate. Regardless of your opinion, you can’t say that Alexa Bliss hasn’t made a huge impact as a WWE superstar.
In fact, some would say that The Goddess turned twisted one is the most successful female superstar on the roster; with her accolades rivaling the accomplishments of all 4 Horsewomen.
She’s a 5 time Women’s Champion, having won the Smackdown Women’s Title twice and the Raw Women’s Title three times. She was one half of the first-ever two-time WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions alongside Nikki Cross. She’s also the second Women’s Triple Crown Winner in WWE history.
Rather than list all of her accomplishments, I’ll trust that you’ve watched enough WWE programming to get the gist of where I’m going with this.
Little Ms. Bliss is kind of a big deal.
When you stop and think about it, Bianca Belair and title opportunities boil down to basic Steiner math.
If you divide the number of times she’s been given the opportunity to become champion again and subtract that one time at this year’s SummerSlam where she lost the Smackdown Women’s Title in 26 seconds while multiplying the number of times she’s won a match with the KOD, the records will show that she has a one hundred and 1/3 chance of another title opportunity.
But seriously, The EST’s 2021 hasn’t been all that bad. She won the Royal Rumble. She was a part of history at WrestleMania and became champion, to boot. Not to mention, she’s feuded with almost every top female superstar in the company at this point.
If there’s an award for breakout superstar of the year, Bianca Belair wins for 2021 by a landslide.
