The Women’s Evolution was the centerpiece in WWE programming starting from late 2018. It was highlighted by the Evolution 2018 pay-per-view followed by the first women’s match to the main event at WrestleMania 35 featuring Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Ronda Rousey.
But some do think that the process has taken backstage ever since Ronda chose to leave following the biggest event of them all.
Charlotte Flair has not been on the receiving end of good bookings, as of late whereas Becky Lynch’s title reign has fallen short for the past couple of months.
It’s surprising to know that she defended the Raw Women’s title back at Hell in a Cell and since them yet to be booked in a singles championship feud.
Charlotte Flair discussed whether WWE’s women’s division has taken a step back while appearing in the After The Bell podcast hosted by Corey Graves. She does not agree with the idea entirely as she mentioned the career accomplishments she had over the course of the last year.
Last year, Charlotte Flair featured in a first-ever women’s TLC match whereas this year, the PPV will feature first-ever Women’s tag team TLC matchup. Then she also had more accolades, earlier this year,
“Then there was the Royal Rumble and the storytelling at the end of it with Nia Jax and Becky Lynch and then I main evented WrestleMania and then I arguably retired the greatest WWE Superstar that we’ve ever had, Trish Stratus. It’s like, I had all of those moments last year, I felt those moments.
Like, with Ronda Rousey last year at Survivor Series that is one of the most legit things I have ever seen, like, how did I fall off? If the bar is set so high maybe this just doesn’t feel like that gear.”
However, The Queen did admit that the Women’s Evolution does feel less important on a broader picture. It’s not that WWE is not giving any opportunities to the female superstars but the impact is feeling less,
“You have to look for that next big story. That is why we are here, to tell stories. There has to be an organic story for us to sink our teeth into. It’s not that the women aren’t getting the opportunity or the creative or time, but it’s our job and their job to find that next story.”
As noted earlier, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch made history again when these two squared off against Asuka and Kairi Sane for the women’s tag team championships at the TLC pay-per-view event.
