Brian Myers Says WWE Misses The Star Power Of Ronda Rousey

WWE’s Women’s Evolution officially started back in July 2015, when Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch received their main roster call-up from NXT, culminating in the three wrestling each other for the newly christened ‘WWE Women’s Championship’ at WrestleMania 32.

Former WWE star Brian Myers (FKA Curt Hawkins) recently spoke to the Wrestling Inc Daily, where he spoke about WWE’s women’s evolution. Myers admitted that the women’s evolution in WWE is still growing, but said he believes that they miss the star power of Ronda Rousey.

He said:

“Yeah, but they made their mark and they made their point. It’s come so far since when I started, what it was, bikini contests and nonsense. I was part of WWE the past couple of years and I saw that women matter, like, big time. They have huge fanbases, they move merch, they get superstar reactions on shows and live events. It’s really cool to see how far it’s come. I think it’s still growing, I do think losing Ronda was a big hit to the star power of the women’s roster. She brought a lot to the table, I was there for a lot of that, she’s a megastar. Bringing all the rest of the roster up to her level, which I thought was pretty cool.”

Myers continued on, discussing what Rousey was like to be around, as someone who shared a locker room with her during her WWE tenure. He said:

“Super cool. I did tours with her and all kinds of stuff, she threw herself right into the thick of it, like one of the boys. It was really cool actually.”

WWE’s women’s revolution led to the second women’s WrestleMania main event this year, when Bianca Belair defeated Sasha Banks for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Both women were named as two of the top five most talked about female athletes of 2021.
