WWE NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa has a different stance on the women’s evolution as he thinks that it started under the WWE NXT banner and not the main roster.
This can be traced back to the several female talents who found their way in NXT and took off once placed on the main roster. These talents include Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, Bayley, among others. Part of that is due to the guidance provided to them by Triple H, who oversees the yellow brand.
Ciampa thinks that these roots to changing the way that WWE presents their female stars come back to NXT. The talent listed above set the stage for a Shayna Baszler and a Bianca Belair. The NXT Champion expressed his belief during a recent interview with The Independent.
“This women’s evolution has been going on the last five years, and it started in NXT. Bayley and Sasha Banks and all these great women before have raised the bar. Now we’re seeing it again. Shayna Baszler is legit, Jessamyn Duke. Now we have Bianca Belair. It’s a great group throughout. It’s what makes NXT so special. There is nothing like professional wrestling live let alone NXT. It’s the best live show that money can by.”
“It feels good to know that NXT is accomplishing something very special,” Ciampa said. “This is something they’re going to remember forever. Our names are going to be written in the history books. It feels good to know we’re the leader in the entire industry right now.”
