Two WWE stars are hoping to kickstart a new women’s revolution, continuing the work of Mercedes Mone, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.
On July 13 2015, the time of the Divas came to an end and the modern WWE women’s division would emerge from its ashes.
Leading the charge were former WWE NXT stars Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, building on the legacy that came before them and led to that moment.
Fast forward to a post-WWE Draft 2023 era for the company and Kayden Carter and Katana Chance are hoping to reignite the revolution in the women’s tag team division.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Carter spoke about the history of women’s revolutionaries, saying:
“I just love wrestling. I sat at NXT for a year before I got to wrestling school and I watched Sasha (Banks), Charlotte (Flair), and Becky (Lynch) start at the bottom before they would be called stars.
“I got to sit there and be like, ‘I want to do this.’ I’ve watched my journey be the same. We weren’t part of the women’s evolution because we were just getting there.
“When we combined our skills, I think we were trying to create a different type of evolution because we didn’t get to contribute in a way that I love wrestling and want to be part of everything.”
Now called up to the main roster, Carter went on to say:
“Going to the main roster, I want the world to see what we’re capable of and know that it exists. Know that we came from a similar journey because we watched us grow from the bottom to now in the ring and we want to create history.
“I want to go up there and kill it with everyone and make magic with everyone so people are like, ‘they’re making their own legacy and evolution and contributing.'”
Chance went on to add:
“Our evolution is to show them…their evolution was that we can keep up with the guys and surpass the guys and [fans are] not walking away when the women come on.
“For us, we’re trying to do that with tag team wrestling, especially with the women and the moves we do. She’ll come to me with an idea, ‘we need to do this. I’ve only seen one random guy do this. We need to do it, make it better, as women, as a team.’ Always lifting that bar.”
The pair are yet to make their main roster in-ring debuts and have previously spoken about doubts that they would actually be called up.
