For years, there were strict restrictions on women in Abu Dhabi. Those restrictions meant that female WWE Superstars could not wrestle but times are changing. However, things changed at Thursday’s live event. For the first time ever, women wrestled in a WWE match.

Triple H commented on the history-making match and Banks was moved to tears when the match was over.
