Over the past few months, WWE has been under a lot of criticism over the revelations of released Superstars and former Women’s Champion Mickie James. Following her departure from the company, she revealed that WWE snubbed her ideas of an all Women’s PPV and that it was never taken seriously.
In a recent media call prior to NXT TakeOver: In Your House, WWE COO and legend Paul “Triple H” Levesque touched upon the topic of an all-women’s PPV being a possibility. With the ‘Evolution’ event in mind, Levesque joked “Haven’t we already done one?”
“It’s a funny thing to me. I just don’t… So equality is equality. Equality is not, ‘I want my own show.’ Equality is not, ‘We have to have our own program,’” he said. “If I told you that I was making an all-men’s program and I didn’t want women on it, it would be criticized, and I’m not saying that’s right or wrong.”

The WWE Women’s Division is regarded as the best in the world today. Over the years since the promising Stephanie McMahon endeavor to uplift the division with Evolution, it has become an integral part of the company.
Triple H does not believe an all-women’s PPV is a necessity currently
With the Four Horsewomen, the highest ever female intake in the Performance Center, the stacked NXT talent, and more, WWE aims to expand the Women’s Division even further. However, Triple H is not sure that warrants a separate PPV.
“I was one of the biggest drivers of it and will we do another all-women’s event down the line? Possibly. But it’s not the must-have at the moment,” he said. “I think we do an amazing job of displaying our female athletes and is it perfect? No. Will it always be in flux? Yes, but I think we do a pretty good job. And my opinion – again, my opinion – the best female performers in the world are in WWE. And then if they’re not, they want to be.” (h/t Inside The Ropes)
Bold statements from ‘The Game’ only summarise how confident he is in the talent of tomorrow. Triple H has played a crucial role in bringing a lot of talent to the main roster and although not all of them become stars, a good number do go on the prove their worth as World Champion.
All women’s PPV or not, WWE is doing something right with the division. You can listen to the full media call below.
