Throughout the WWE’s history, women performed in several roles such as managers, ring announcers, presenters, and also as wrestlers. In the 1990s, WWE begins to call female performers as Divas. The term Diva was in use until 2016 when it was discontinued in favor of Women Superstar or just Superstars.
