WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon appeared on BBC Radio today to promote the company’s move to BT Sport. You can check out a clip of Stephanie’s appearance on the show below. Stephanie discussed the rebranding of the WWE women’s division and more.
During the show, she was asked if she ever imagined WWE taking a leap with the women’s division looking back at how they were used in the 90s. Stephanie McMahon stated,
“I never doubted the power of women, and I think it really started with my husband Triple H, Paul Levesque, for WWE at any rate. He started recruiting elite athletes, not just models. And he started training women the same as the men, hired the first-ever coach at the Performance Center and started giving them the same opportunities, the same match time, opportunities at events that were televised, that were non-televised. And on NXT, that live audience started chanting, ‘This is wrestling,” and ‘Women’s wrestling!’”
