The "Dirty" Truth Behind the Fall of the Divas

I don't understand why nobody will say this. Everyone has a reason why the Divas are basically non existent compared to years past.

There is only one true reason:

They decided to move away from sex appeal. No TnA - no popularity.

You may not like it but its the truth. If you look back to when they started getting popular it was Sunny and Sable. Both thrived on exposing themselves. Following them were Lita, The Kat, Trish, Jacky, Keibler, Tori, Mickey, Runnels, etc.. All breaking out using their sex appeal.

Once they went the direction of covering up the women and using the "Strong, Powerful, Smart, Sexy" motto, the interest in them disappeared.

Same reason why there are Ring Girls and Cheerleaders wearing next to nothing. The reason that the Divas took off more than the ring girls and cheerleaders is because wrestling took it to the next level by having them in thongs and doing such things as wrestling in mud and ripping each others dresses off. The kind of thing that can be seen in strip clubs.

To see characters on TV do this kind of stuff is most guys wet dream. That's why it went over so well.

The WWE made a decision to take the moral high road in regards to the women once they changed their image. A casualty of that is the Divas division.

It's a double edges sword for them. If they want to keep up their good moral appeal then they won't go the TnA rout. If they want to make the women more popular and create some more stars they will return to the way it was.

I'm not saying its right or wrong either way, just pointing it out.

Divas matches used to be fap breaks.

Now they are piss breaks. (Well, seeing two girls in tights is still pretty fap worthy, but not its nothing like it used to be.)

Just curious, could you elaborate on what exactly I wrote that would qualify me as a virgin?

Re: The "Dirty" Truth Behind the Fall of the Divas

I think it's ridiculous to make the women objects as opposed to human beings that are there for the same reasons as the men. I'm sure many sexist guys will disagree with me, whatever.

The reason for the failure of the "divas" division isn't because they're no longer showing tons of skin, it's because it's a bunch of models prancing around to horrendous music and have absolutely nothing to offer in the world of professional wrestling. But that's all that matters I suppose. It's a business and they'll exploit just about anything for a quick buck, instead of acknowledging the possibility of balancing lucrative gain with a product that isn't revolting.

I didn't say it was morally right. At what point do you think the crowd loved the Divas because of their wrestling skills?

On top of that, who's to say the WWE was wrong in doing it? Probably not the women like Trish, Keibler, Tori and Lita who willingly participated in it and benefited greatly.
