The state of the women’s division addressed by Tiffany Stratton.
Tiffany Stratton is reigning as NXT Women’s Champion and next up on the docket for her is a title defense against Thea Hail at Great American Bash in a Submission match.
Prior to the 7/21 Friday Night SmackDown in Orlando, Florida, Stratton was in action in a dark match against Kiana James. While being interviewed by TV Insider, she was asked about the state of WWE’s women’s division. She feels NXT has one of the better ones compared to Raw and SmackDown.
She went on to state that there is a spotlight on NXT’s women’s division but for the main roster brands, there is not as much of that spotlight.
I think we have a really good women’s division at NXT. I think it’s one of the better ones compared to Raw and SmackDown. At NXT, I feel we have such a spotlight for the women. I definitely feel on Raw and SmackDown, it’s not as much of the spotlight for the women. We have a lot of young talent. Thea Hail, for instance is only 19 years old. Roxanne Perez, who is basically 21. Cora Jade, 22. I definitely think there is a lot of future within the NXT women’s division. I can definitely see a lot of the girls taking over within the next three or four years on Raw and SmackDown.
On the topic of non-wrestling ventures, Stratton expressed that she would love to get into acting.
I would love to go into acting. My dream role would be some cool action superhero girl that does cool flips. That’s my dream role. Like a Wonder Woman. I’m a big fan of her. I was dressed as her for Halloween one year.
