AEW Star Thunder Rosa Blasts Triple H for Huge Claims on the WWE Women’s Division

Published 06/11/2021, 8:00 AM EDT


Fans have regarded the WWE Women’s division as the best in the world over the past 5 years. The enormous amount of talent coupled with the scope for a bright future has solidified its position. Even with the rise of the prominent AEW Women’s Division and NWA All Women’s PPV, WWE COO Paul “Triple H” Levesque is unphased in his judgment.

In a recent media call prior to NXT TakeOver: In Your House, ‘The Game’ claimed that the best female wrestlers in the world are wrestling in WWE. He added that every aspiring female wrestler would also want to end up in WWE.

“I do think it’s funny when people go, ‘I want the best in the world regardless of contractual status.’ I’m sorry. From a business person standpoint, then why do we have contractual status? Right? It doesn’t make any sense to me,” he said. “Yeah, if you want to wrestle the best women in the world, come to the WWE. That’s where they are. If you want to go elsewhere and say that they are, that’s an opinion – and you can. But it is what it is.” (h/t Inside The Ropes)

This was of course in response to Mickie James’ revelations that WWE snubbed her ideas of an All-Women’s PPV. She then made the dream a reality in NWA by heading the road to its first-ever All-Women’s PPV.

“My opinion – the best female performers in the world are in WWE. And then if they’re not, they want to be,” Triple H said.

There will undoubtedly be more to come.

While WWE may have the best Women’s Division, other Superstars thrive on their own in various promotions. Serena Deeb, Britt Baker, Tay Conti, and the like are examples of that, Other names such as Hikaru Shida prove that talent can be made outside WWE.
