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

Didnt the dirtsheet some time ago write something about that wwe is going to revamp the whole division now in 2013?

Maybe thats why they lay low with it right now.

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

Well the division certainly is at a very low point at the moment. That's what you get for treating talented workers like Gail Kim and Mickie James like shit. I'm surprised that Natalya is still there. The division is in such a state and yet they still refuse to push her or use her correctly. AJ is still not being allowed to wrestle regularly and is still being used as a valet when she could be so much more yet they are having Aksana who can't work for shit wrestle on Television. It's completely ass backwards. The fact is:

* They should have never turned AJ heel as she was the most over diva in years.

* Aksana should go back to being a heel valet

* I've pretty much given up on WWE using Natalya properly. I'm convinced that they have some personal issues with her. How they cannot see that Natalya could be a credible divas champion at this point is absolutely beyond me.

* Kaitlyn is not the worst choice you could make as champion right now but she's green and she isn't ready. Still it could be a lot worse.

The very first things WWE should do with the division if they want to revive it are:

* Have AJ wrestle full time. Heel or face, either way. As of right now, she's the diva to build the division around.

* Put the divas in their proper roles and know their limitations. Put Aksana back as a valet, have Naomi become a full time competitor and let Natalya wrestle! And fire that useless bitch Cameron.

* Call up some of the NXT stars, at the very least call up Paige.

* Work on Kaitlyn's character, aside from the hometown pop she got casuals could care less about her. That needs to be worked on, especially if A) WWE are serious about rebuilding the division and B) They put Kaitlyn in a feud with AJ till Mania.

* Put Sara Del Rey on the main roster and let her become a full time talent. For the love of god WWE need someone like her in the division right now.

* Go out and scout the best independent women's wrestlers and sign them. The divas search will not help WWE in the long run because for every Eve you get you have about 10 who are useless and are only there to be on TV. At least you would know that the people you hire care about the business and want to be there.

If not, you might as well just scrap the division all together and keep the women who can be good at being valets or TV stars for the product.

Good. It should. It should have a long time ago. WWE will never let the women upstage the men & they will never be taken credibly in the "boys club" of WWE, so stop wasting time, money & resources on an inferior product.

The sad thing is, WWE could have an amazing female division, with great workers, capable of putting on good matches between women with talent & depth to their character. Even providing some role models to young girls, like the women of Joshi in Japan. WWE will just never do it.

Common sense goes completely out the window in WWE. They either hire non-wrestlers (models) & try to make them work, or they hire wrestlers (non-models) & have them not work. It's such a backwards mentality.

Everyone talking about Paige being the savoir is just lying to themselves. She's not a great worker in the first place but she is young & pretty. I think more than anything, it's just people holding onto hope, for whatever reason. Honestly though, the women's division doesn't add anything to the product. It hasn't for years. It arguably hasn't ever in WWE.

Closest thing I've ever cared about from the "Divas" was AJ in NXT.

Divas are a complete waste. Almost as bad as the time wasters like Kofi. Good for a bathroom break and change the channel when you come to your senses.

I don't think Paige would be a savior of the Diva's division but I have seen her work in FCW and NXT and some indy stuff and she has potential to be a star. I would say she is capable of being a good worker given a chance. She comes from a family in the wrestling business so she is awair of the realities of the business. I think she needs to be brought up to the main Divas division and begin to develop on a bigger stage. Just bear in mind that she is only 20 years old and has been wrestling for years now and most Diva's do not even start learning until they are much older.

Well I didn't like when they made her general manager, she tried to do a good job with it but it didn't fit her. I just think they're giving her gimmicks that don't fit her personality or in ring presence. I know they're pushing her and personally I think she deserves a push and yes she gets lots of airtime but what they write for her doesn't fit her.

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

Yeah well here's the problem with what's left too:

AJ Lee: Gets way too much mic time considering her limited mic skills. Is okay in the ring.

Aksana: is terrible

Alicia Fox: She's fairly decent in the ring, but no better than an average of the past.

Cameron: Little more than a dancer, but at least she does that well.

Kaitlyn: One of the worst on the roster

Layla: Hot, but mediocre and slow wrestler

Naomi: She's actually pretty good, top 3 behind Natalya and Tamina in ring, #1 in presentation, but probably #2 overall behind Natalya

Natalya: Best diva left. At worst she's #2, and barely. But you'd have to provide a pretty sound argument to claim she isn't the best one left.

Rosa: Awful in ring. Possibly the worst one. She's a decent manager though.

Tamina: Good wrestler, but doesn't seem great on the mic and is kind of ugly (meaning Vince likely won't push her).



You could literally fire half the remaining divas and barely notice.

WWE let go their best diva every time they got established. Melina was the best diva since Trish and Lita. . .gone. Beth was the best diva since Melina got fired. . .then she gets fired. Eve was arguably the best remaining diva. . .and she quit.

Time to stop pushing models Vince. If he's gonna use female wrestlers, he should make sure they're at least actual athletes first. Natalya, Tamina, and Naomi should be used the most since they're the ones closest to being able to put on a real match, and then he can sprinkle in eye candy like Layla and whoever every now and then.
