As noted, WWE held an Emmy “For Your Consideration” event at the TV Academy Saban Media Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.
The event was attended by names such as Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, The Bella Twins, Ronda Rousey, Roman Reigns, Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and more. Also in attendance was WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels, Braun Strowman, The New Day and others.
According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the lineup of talents at the Emmy event was interesting and offers an indication as to who WWE considers as the current top stars in the company.
We noted that the prominent names pushed on the red carpet for the event, which you can check out exclusive photos of below, included Ronda Rousey, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, and The Bellas Twins. The Observer notes the aforementioned names are who WWE currently views as the “top stars” in the company as it pertains to the mainstream audience and media, with Triple H and Stephanie representing the company executives, Rousey being a crossover star, and The Bella Twins being reality stars with “Total Divas” and “Total Bellas”.
The report adds it is interesting that Roman Reigns, who was previously the guy WWE wanted to build around in the mainstream star role, was not used in that capacity at the Emmy event.
