Who would have thought this really! WWE’s chief brand officer, Stephanie McMahon has revealed which athlete she would love to have in her roster and guess what; it’s the 23-time Grand Slam winner, Serena Williams.
As things stand for WWE right now, the company has indulged in bringing a women revolution and it has all come down following the success of Ronda Rousey. In addition to that, the company will also celebrate its first ever all-female WWE Evolution pay-per-view on Sunday – scheduled at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
And speaking at WWE’s New York office, Stephanie said: “Serena! I want Serena. She’s awesome.”
Stephanie further added that the company would not have achieved this historic feat if they hadn’t had the backing of their faithful (fans).
“The women in NXT then started stealing the show and that’s when our audience started chanting ‘this is wrestling’ and that’s what really gave rise to the ‘give women a chance’ movement.
“Our fans are empowered because they know they have a voice and they make things happen.”
WWE has further plans of making this event even bigger as there will be a live streaming on Twitter of the first 30 minutes. This all-female Evolution will not only see the company’s best wrestlers taking on each other, but it will also mark the return of two of best wrestlers WWE has ever had. Here is the list:
Raw Women’s Championship — Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nikki Bella
SmackDown Women’s Championship — Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair (Last Woman Standing Match)
Trish Stratus & Lita vs. Mickie James & Alicia Fox
Sasha Banks, Bayley & Natalya vs. The Riott Squad
NXT Women’s Championship — Kairi Sane (c) vs. Shayna Baszler
Io Shirai vs. Toni Storm (2018 Mae Young Classic final)
Battle Royal: Tamina Snuka, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Ember Moon, Alicia Fox, Nia Jax, Dana Brooke, Asuka, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Carmella, Lana, Naomi, Torrie Wilson, Michelle McCool, Madusa, Molly Holly, Ivory, Kelly Kelly and Maria Kanellis.
Meanwhile, as far as convincing Serena of switching the Tennis court to the squared circle is concerned, it seems WWE will have to wait for a longer period as her plan is to become a mother again, and that’s according to the 1999 Wimbledon winner Lindsay Davenport.
“She is doing her best, there’s no doubt about it. It’ll be interesting to see what her motivation is like in 2019, because you’re getting pulled in so many different directions.
“She’s talked openly about wanting to have more kids.”
