Even in it's 'prime' with the likes of Trish, Lita, Victoria etc the division was never all that popular. Just let the contracts of the current divas expire and then cancel the division. Showcasing a completely talentless female division is more sexist than not having one at all.

Scrap it. Scrap the division.

Stop employing female wrestlers, and let them join a promotion that actually showcases female wrestling. Instead, start employing women based on look and personality, and use them productively as managers.

There, I said it.

Big Show was champion while Daniel Bryan was being paired with Kane. Wrestling skill is not the main factor and will never be.

Re: Diva's divison at all time low: Down to 10 female wrestlers on main roster

I pulled up third party sellers (which aren't affiliated with WWE) and WWE Shop which has the replica belts and rings which the divas don't receive compensation for since it isn't their individual likeness. None of this goes to the divas. And most of it is dated from early 2000's which doesn't even include the current or recent diva roster (a clear indication it's third party merchandise and likely knock off merchandise) since there's limits on how long WWE can sue for knock off merchandise.

Re: Diva's divison at all time low: Down to 10 female wrestlers on main roster

The divas division should be

Paige (She is the next Diva to be called up)
AJ
Naomi
Natalya
Tamina
Kaitlyn
Layla

The rest can be released or be used as managers only.

Re: Diva's divison at all time low: Down to 10 female wrestlers on main roster

I can't with people saying "no one cares about the divas division" when CLEARLY you wouldn't have so many of us upset about the current product, if we didn't. Anyway, it's so frustrating that WWE really doesn't seem to care about those of us who do actually enjoy the division.

They have sooooo many places they could take the divas inside the WWE! Why host these NXT contests all to make them turn out to be pointless?!? I almost wouldn't mind a diva Search at this point because at least THEN they try to put on a front like they're "wanting to build a division"

My idea: bring in maybe 5+ female wrestlers, have them do a diva search storyline with it all turning out to them being regulars and they compete in a tournament for the title.

Which brings up an interesting question. Don't the male wrestlers gets some sort of % of their merchandise sales? Yet, I bet you AJ gets no % of Dolph's shirt sales...yet...shouldn't she?

She does wear it on a weekly basis, and whether any of us like her or not, young girls seem to. And I'm going to assume at least one of her fans bought the Ziggler shirt that wouldn't normally have done so, simply because she was wearing it.

they need to either scrap it or bring in talented girls.

in the end after AJ Lee time comes to a end, I bet the division or at least the girl that they will focus the most on will be Charlotte (Flair's daughter) anyways

This! starting with my sig, although all the diva's that she would have a decent match with have now left so I'm not entirely sure I want to see her wasted in the current state of the division.


There has been an awakening, have you felt it

Get rid of it. They completely scrapped it in the 90s and it eventually came back strong.
