It finally happened. The women’s revolution has finally begun in “WWE Raw”. After much speculation NXT star Charlotte and current NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks have been promoted from NXT to the WWE main roster. After weeks long talk and rumors about them, they made their WWE debut on Monday night on “Raw”. They were followed by another NXT star Becky Lynch. 

Fans and followers all over the country celebrated the good news and prominent WWE stars Paige and the Bella Twins along with the newbie Sasha Banks tweeted on Twitter, reacting to the news.

The tweets went something like this:

The Bella Twins tweeted  “You spoke, they heard, change has been made and the competition begins! Time to make history! N #DivasChamp #Roadto300Days #TeamBella #EPIC”

Paige also put in her 2 cents, “I have my girls @MsCharlotteWWE and @BeckyLynchWWE now it's time to take over. Create change for the good. #FreaksAndGeeks @WWE”

Sasha tweeted, “Who's the baddest! #TeamBAD #RAW #RAWAtlanta”

After the big announcement, Sasha quickly posted a few pictures of her on Instagram.

The NXT has successfully offered their fans with quality content this past year and the wrestlers are some of the best there is. So, there’s a lot of expectation from Charlotte and Sasha Banks. People want to see there true potential. They want to see what they have to offer to the “Raw” which is already filled with so many talented young WWE stars.

Sasha Banks has always been the main attraction of WWE as she holds the NXT Women’s Title. Besides being a champion, this girl aged 23 has wits as she chose Tamina Snuka and Naomi as her ally who are already leading names in the WWE while Charlotte and Becky Lynch aligned with the fierce Paige.So, it would be interesting this week with the Sasha Banks debut. It would definitely be worth watching.

In an recent interview in the TV show “This is Awesome Wrestling Show” hosted by Glenn Moore and Steve Guy Sasha openly spoke about the Diva’s Division in NXT “Well, for me, I’ve always wanted to do this. Growing up, I was never really a fan of the Divas because I just never felt like they were role models for me. And the matches were not…watching it, it was very disappointing, especially when I wanted to be a wrestler so bad.”

We hope that Stephanie McMahon’s effort pay off with flying colors as she brought the trio to the ring when she revealed to the Monday Night Raw audience that she was going to be shaking up the divas division because Paige was the only one backstage that really showed any fire. We don’t have to wait long for the fire as the new girls have already sparked a flame.

Talking about Sasha Banks, it was reported that she was suffering from a shoulder injury. According to various media updates, Banks has suffered some type of arm or shoulder injury. It was not so clear whether it was a serious one or just minor injury. Further rumors revealed that Sasha was actually out because her alleged boyfriend had a scary incident in the ring.

Her hot beau Sarath Ton aka Rutherford Hayes is also a wrestler and they started dating each other recently.He got knocked out cold during a tag match at the NXT tapings. Thankfully he’s ok and Sasha is too. Hopes are high that Sasha would show the same kind of magic in WWE that made her the NXT Women’s Champion.
