WOW (The Women of WWE)

Women of WWE

wwe-blog-post

Women’s wrestling joined WWE in 1984, and The Fabulous Moolah was the first WWE Women’s Champion. However, it was originally seen as a side show to the main event, women have fought hard to bring it to the centre stage, and women’s wrestling has an ever growing prominence. So who are the ladies promoting this movement in WWE?

Alexa Bliss

Don’t underestimate this Superstar because of her height. Bliss is the current Raw Women’s Champion, and former two time SmackDown Champion. She first entered WWE in May 2013, and is the first woman to have won the SmackDown’s Women’s Championship twice, and both the Raw and SmackDown women’s championships.

Bliss has a background in gymnastics, cheerleading and bodybuilding. She’s a fierce competitor with a bad attitude, you don’t want to get on the wrong side of her.

Don’t let the hugs and smiles fool you, she is still a threat. Her match against Sasha Banks at NXT TakeOver: Respect was the first women’s match to headline a WWE event, and it was the longest women’s match in WWE history.
