World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) chief brand officer Stephanie McMahon talked about the future of female WWE and how the brand is tackling the challenges of social media at CES Las Vegas 2019 on Wednesday.

"Just over a year ago in Abu Dhabi, our women were allowed to perform for the first time, and they had to be completely covered except for their heads and their hands," McMahon said.

The former wrestling personality added that the audience in Abu Dhabi chanted "this is hope" and "our performers in the ring said they saw tears in the eyes of little girls in the front row."
