[ Former WWE Star Disputes Notion That Women’s Wrestling Doesn’t Draw ]

While responding to a fan who claimed that WWE shows featuring women in main events have seen a drop off in viewership, Storm tweeted that Becky Lynch ‘drew in key segments and main events’ back in 2018 and 2019.

‘Becky Lynch drew in key segments and main events,’ Storm wrote. ‘The focus, story and long term presentation needs to be there for anyone to draw in the Main Event. You can’t just throw any 2 people (male or female) in a main event and expect them to draw.’

In another tweet, Storm said women’s wrestling will draw provided the women are presented as credible Superstars.

As well as recognising their contribution to the industry, the series will also examine how far television has progressed, and how much further it still has to go.

“I’ve just been home-schooling four out of five days a week,” she tells us. “It’s fine, but then I’m working at night and doing pitches on my one afternoon off when she goes to her dad’s. It’s just been fairly challenging.”
