WWE is looking to celebrate the five-year anniversary of the beginning of the transition from “Divas” going to “Superstars” and all of the groundbreaking moments that came because of the Women’s Evolution.
WWE has announced “Women’s Evolution Week,” a digital celebration of how far the women's division has come in the last five years beginning with the Monday Night Raw debuts of Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Sasha Banks on July 13, 2015.
In the time since their debut, the WWE Divas Championship transformed into the WWE Women's Championship, which is now the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships and the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship has also been resurrected courtesy of Sasha Banks and Bayley, two of the women that really kicked off the movement.
Women have also been on the cover of WWE video games, competed in their own Royal Rumble matches, Hell in a Cell matches, Money in the Bank ladder matches, held their own pay-per-view, and have even headlined WrestleMania.
