How the WWE Four Horsewomen changed women’s wrestling

1 of 12

The legacy of the WWE Four Horsewomen — Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and Bayley — is one of heart, talent, and a unified determination that changed the landscape of women’s wrestling forever.

A lyric in the song “Born for This” by the band The Score states: “We come from different places but have the same name.” It epitomizes the journey of four young women, from very different backgrounds, who entered the wrestling business as solos and soon became one unit.

"“You can’t explain it. When people ask about it, you just can’t explain it. It’s just there. We all have differences or whatever, we come from different places, but once we get together we have one goal. You can see it, and you can feel it.” — Bayley via WWE.COM, NXT DIVA ROUNDTABLE"

Dubbed The Four Horsewomen by their fans, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Bayley bonded during their time in the training grounds of NXT for one very important reason each of them shared: they wanted to make women’s wrestling great again.

During an interview with ESPN, each of the Superstars spoke about those initial early days and recalled feeling immediate chemistry when they stepped in the ring together. That chemistry would generate some of the most acclaimed matches, not just in women’s wrestling, but in the whole of the business. Here’s a look back at the impact The Four Horsewomen have had.
