Trish Stratus On How WWE Can Attract More Female Viewers

WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus, who many considers as one of, if not the greatest female wrestler of all time, recently had a conversation with Alfred Konuwa of Forbes on a variety of topics such as how WWE can attract more female viewers.

Trish Stratus said:

“I think what they’re doing now [to attract women viewers] is exactly right.” “We’re giving the women more visibility, and it’s not about just a women’s match now, it’s Match 5. In other words, it doesn’t matter what gender is doing this match.”

Trish Stratus also talked about the difference between when she and fellow WWE Hall of Famer Lita got to main event an episode of WWE RAW and now as women are main-eventing all the time and not only RAW, but Premium Live Events as well.

Trish Stratus said:

“Back in the day, when Lita and I got the main event of Raw, that was a huge thing. It was history-making. It was unprecedented. Now, it’s very common.” “The women are main-eventing all the time. Not only Raw, but they’re main-eventing pay-per-views, WrestleMania etc. The things they’re doing right now, they’re taking the right strides to become better represented and not make it such a male-dominated world. Coming back 20 years later, I’m seeing the difference. I’m seeing the opportunity. I’m seeing the same attention is given to us as the males, whereas back in the day, it wasn’t quite like that. It was definitely an uphill battle back in the day, and it’s a nice environment right now. It’s a really good time for women that we finally had a voice and I’m proud to know that Lita and I had a hand in it.”
