The Rise, Fall, and Evolution of the Four Horsewomen

Since their days in NXT, the group known as the Four Horsewomen: Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Bayley, truly did start a revolution of women’s wrestling in the WWE.

The Four HorsewomenCreating four unique characters, having the bravery to do things no other women stars have done before in the company, and performing at a high level in the ring, the future seemed bright for the former Divas division.

However, as with many stars, there were bumps along the way. Once on the main roster, the four women have yet to achieve what many fans had hoped, through no fault of their own, but to the concern of many.

Given how young all of them are though, the future still remains bright as they have the potential to turn a revolution into an evolution.

We go back and look at the last few years of the Four Horsewomen and what they’ve meant to the WWE, pro wrestling, and women around the world.
