As the women’s revolution gets into full throttle in the WWE, one figurehead in the movement believes there is gender equality in the premier wrestling promotion in the world.

Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte said the women wrestlers in the WWE is in the same level as the men.

“We’re considered now as Superstars and we’re 100 percent equal with the men,” Charlotte said Friday during WWE Live Manila’s press conference at Conrad Hotel.

“Women wrestlers are athletes, not just pretty faces.”

WWE called its women wrestlers Divas during the PG Era, but the promotion eventually called them Superstars, the label given to the men, at the onset of the New Era.

Charlotte won the Women’s Title back in Wrestlamania against Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch in a triple threat match in what was considered as the best in the card.

“We want to be treated as equals, like the boys, and the fans are getting behind women’s wrestling and they want more from us,” said Charlotte.

She added it’s not only her who’s in the forefront of the growth of women’s wrestling but also all the others before her.

Charlotte credited Natalya, who is Bret Hart’s niece, and the Bella Twins, Brie and Nikki, for laying down the foundation to what eventually became the women’s revolution.
