Women have been used extensively by the WWE throughout its history, especially during the Diva's Revolution era when they were given more authority over their careers. Women have played key roles in the success of WWE programs including WrestleMania I where Linda McMahon was involved in the main event, World Wrestling Federation (WWF)'s flagship program and has had several women hold the WWF Women's Championship, and today's WWE where WWE Women's Champion Sasha Banks is one of the company's biggest stars.
In SvR '06, all divas may wrestle and serve as managers or special referees, but they cannot be employed in Season Mode. CLASSIFICATION: WWE Smackdown or WWE Raw (And ECW, but it was defunct at the time of this game.) In the game, these are referred to as "brands." MANAGERS AND SPECIAL REFS: All divas are eligible to be managers or special referees.
A manager manages his/her brand by making matches for and coaching wrestlers. A special referee is used when there is no match to officiate or prevent violence outside of the ring. Managers and special referees can sign contracts with WWE offices to become full-time employees.
RAW BRAND WOMEN CAN WRESTLE IN RAW SEASON MODE: Yes, only women can be hired as special referees or managers. They can also compete in the Divas Championship Tournament or find other opportunities within the company. Only one woman has ever been drafted during the draft phase of Smackdown! Here is how the process works: The executive director of talent management picks five women from a list of applicants submitted by WWE Studios. These women will then go on to have storylines on both brands over the course of a month. When asked about including men in the brand extension, Vince McMahon said it wasn't necessary because "women will sell tickets".
MEN CANNOT WRESTLE ON RAW: No, only women can work on the Raw brand.
