She joined the company when the industry was male-dominated. Hence, she worked to create a space where women could compete in the same ring and reach similar heights as their male colleagues.

In one of the first steps aimed at putting women and men on a similar footing, WWE announced that all pro-wrestlers working with the company will be known as Superstars. Hence, the regressive ‘Diva’ nomenclature was done away with.
