Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are said to be big proponents of changing the way women in WWE are featured. Apparently this is very much based on Stephanie’s influence and the success UFC has had with Ronda Rousey.
It’s said that the two aren’t UFC fans but are fans of Rousey and her recent Sports Illustrated cover was another sign to them that times have changed and it’s a different era. At the same time, it was said to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Vince McMahon still sees women in the role that they’re currently in on WWE’s main roster.
