It can be argued that 2021 and 2022 were transitional years for WWE’s women’s division, with the likes of Bianca Belair and Liv Morgan stepping up and winning championship gold.
With the like of Bayley, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair away for long stretches, and with the exit of Sasha Banks, the division needed new stars to step up. Becky Lynch herself is excited for where the division goes in the future, saying the following during a panel at Advertising Week New York:
“I mean, I look at NXT and this is no discourse towards the men but I look at the women, I go, oh, that’s the future, that’s the future. That’s where the engaging characters are, that is incredible athleticism. Some athleticism that I never in a million years would be capable of and I think you can see the interest in what the women are doing down there and so I think it’s the future. And I look at our women’s roster now and I go, you know, between me [Lynch laughed] and you got Bianca Belair, you got Rhea Ripley who’s just incredible and is so young and you got Liv Morgan and you have all these incredible women just getting started. It’s awesome. I’m very excited about it,” said Lynch.
