• Women Are Getting More Significant Roles In WWE With Stephanie McMahon As Co-CEO

After Vince McMahon retired from all positions on July 22nd, Nick Khan and Stephanie McMahon were made the co-CEOs of WWE.

While WWE’s female wrestlers have been getting more opportunities on TV ever since 2015-2016, backstage female workers are now getting more opportunities as well.

Stephanie tweeted the following after the recent Crown Jewel premium live event:

“Photographer Heather McLaughlin as @WWE’s first female photographer to shoot ringside in Saudi Arabia, 2 female refs @refajawwe & @WWELadyRefJess, & 2 incredible women’s matches. Another page in the history books for the women of #WWE! #WWECrownJewel #proud”

Stephanie tweeted the following after this week’s RAW:

“During last night’s #WWERaw in Louisville, @WWE’s Georgiana Dallas, Andrea Kellaway & Heather McLaughlin made up the first all-female photo team to staff a #WWE show – carving their names in company history forever! Thank you for all that you do!”

Former Women’s Champion Natalya recently said the following about Stephanie’s vision:

“Stephanie [McMahon] has always wanted women to have more representation. She doesn’t want a show where it’s like, okay we have 75% male matches and we’ve got 25% women’s matches.

She wants a show where it’s half men and half women, she wants equality for women in WWE.

She has been very vocal about it and it’s really, really cool.”
