What merchandising? None of the divas have their own T-shirt and if you go to WWE Shop right now, all that you can buy is a replica belt or ring. All of that goes to WWE, not the divas.

And almost all of the appearances were done by Kelly Kelly or Eve over the last few years. Who knows what happens now that both left. The rest of the divas received next to nothing in appearance dates and anything that they did they had to pay for in travel costs. And most of the appearances were required as part of their contract to represent WWE (overseas media tours, visiting the troops, going to children's hospitals, be a STAR campaign, etc.) and didn't include additional compensation.

So neither apply here. Again, the divas aren't making nearly as much as is the perception in this thread.

As I said in the Eve quit thread, they've lost 6 divas in the past year (The Bella Twins, Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix, Maxine, Eve) and they haven't called up a single new diva to replace them. That tells you everything about how much WWE care. And I don't care either, and I'm surprised there's still 10 divas on the roster, I thought there was like 6 or something. The divas division is at and all time low, but it's been going downhill for years so it's not surprising where the division is at now.

This company, I don't get it. They had plenty of talented female workers and personalities in the past, people like Molly Hardy, Jacqueline, Ivory, Chyna, Victoria, Mickie James, Michelle McCool, Gail Kim, Beth Phoenix etc. They know at LEAST 3 of them were bonafide draws that people cared about: Chyna, Trish Stratus, Lita.

If I was I'd be pissed at all the money we are leaving on the table. Especially with the last decade having so much more girl and women involvement in sports, to have the Divas Division in this sad state is just leaving a shit ton of money on the table. We don't have top tier Divas talent with merchandise? We don't have a Diva luchador to move masks? We don't even have a fuckin' shirt for these people? Half of 'em don't even wrestle when we need content for 3 hours of RAW, 2 hours of Smackdown, NXT, Superstars, Saturday Morning Slam, Main Event AND a weekly PPV?



What is this company thinking?

When AJ wins the divas title, will she ever actually lose it?

I mean I suppose she will but no one will care.

They need to build someone else up to the level they've built her up to. The other women can do what she does, kiss, scream, yell, skip. If that's what they want for some reason they can do that too.

So they have to or AJ will win the divas title and hold it for years. And I'm not joking either. She'll hold it for years. I don't mean consecutive, but I mean the way Cena had about 6 or 7 reigns in 2 years. Same thing. She'll hold it for 8 months, lose it for 2 months, then win it back and hold it again for 8 months. THAT is the way to permanently destroy the divas division.

The divas division hasn't mattered since 2007. It's why the Women's title was retired so as not to disgrace its lineage, rather, create the butterfly to make a joke fo a division from.

If they were serious about the women, they could easily fix it (reduce the rollup victory tag matches, give them matches longer than 2 minutes), promote developmentals (Paige, Audrey) and make it interesting. However, they won't, as nobody really cares for the division, so it will continue to function how it has been.

I say just put Vickie Guerrero in some spandex and put her in a title match. Problem solved.

LOL

they have no merch! the only one who had merch is vickie, and no one buys it...and newsflash, WWE doesn't pay you extra for appearances, its considered part of your duty as an employee, and guess what, they don't like other companies paying you either because that is the possibility for competition.

And btw the link you posted to that generic divas junk. You think people actually buy that crap, and if they do it makes up a sizable amount worth splitting among 10 women??

The last time they had divas who could sell t-shirts with their names on them and DVDs were when Trish and Lita worked in WWE.

I thought that with Sara Del Rey training we would have amazing matches, but it is actually far worse. (or is she only training the nxt divas?)

Bring Paige to the main roster PLEASE
Yes! Times a billion!
