Ice Ribbon, in Japan, tried this approach. They lost both of their big stars this year & last to high school exams. Also, pro wrestling is still a pretty sketchy business full of the kind of exploitation and go-along-to-get-along I'm sure I wouldn't want young women exposed to.

Eve keeps surprising me with how good she can be. She needs to tighten up her performances, but that's just a matter of getting to wrestle more frequently.

I think it was quite apparent Kharma was being groomed as this generations Chyna before that series of mishaps took place that led to her release.

People seem to forget that the divas division was attracting attention for the first time in a long time during her short but memorable tenure, so when she was out on the shelf plans changed for the worse and they put the entire division on the back burner. They did have plans, but they put all their eggs in one basket (yet again) with only one possible focal point.

Kharma is this generations Chyna without the drug problems and she is a great worker. Chyna was awful as anything other than DX bodyguard

Oh yeah I agree that Chyna was pretty awful other than being a recognised commodity for her size, appearance and placement. Still, her memorability can't be discounted.

Re: What could the WWE do to rebuild the Divas Div

All they really need to do is to take it seriously. It used to be the Women's division, and instead of models they had actual trained wrestlers. They need to scrap the Divas title and revive the Women's title, then focus on recruiting more athletic women and seriously pushing their training instead of letting them be 5% ability and 95% eye candy. After that, it's just a matter of making sure to dedicate the time necessary to transform the division back into an actual attraction of the show rather than just a mini-intermission.

I remember they used to have so many great performers, they need to get that back.

Talk about hitting the nail on the head, spot on Regnes. Although "divas" are nice on the eye, if they can't wrestle, they should just go pose for some magazine. I'd much rather see athletic/talented wrestlerettes while watching a wrestling show. If I just wanted to see good-looking talentless bimbos, there's plenty of magazines/sites on the internet where I can see them.

Build the rest of the product/company, then the Diva's division will follow.
