Why the sudden desire for fans to return back to the diva days

Lately a lot of guys in here are longing for bra and pantie matches. Ok I don’t wanna judge people, but seriously u can’t be that thick to like something like that. What I am saying is that back in the attitude era, I liked it but that was because I was 12. I mean grown men liking stuff like that, really? I mean if u want to see hot girls, u can go to the strip club or simply watch porn or better yet step your game up and get a hot chick. Back to wrestling, no we shouldn’t go back to the diva days. That will take the women’s division back to irrelevance. What wwe needs to do is create compelling storylines between their talented female stars. For example why is Lacey Evans given a title shot but the talented ruby riot left of tv? Wwe needs to wake up and utlilise their women well, no wonder Sasha bailed. Also for those blaming the women for the ratings like really. The men’s division does not have 1 single star in it. As a matter of fact the only full time Wwe talent that can may be lay claim to being a star is Becky. Vince used Roman to bury the entire men’s division and that’s why ratings are tanking.

Can't lie, sex sell, example for this on modern wrestling era is Scarlett Bordeux but in same time she also have skills.

But it never interesting me because if I want those kind entertainment, there's always porn site.

The women's lingerie football league sells more tickets than all other women's football leagues combined.

Women are inferior to men in every sport. People do not want to see an inferior product. Ipso facto, women's sports need sex appeal. I personally fast-forward through all women's content except on PPV, but if they promoted a bra-and-panties match, I'm tuning in.

Re: Why the sudden desire for fans to return back to the diva days

Why must looking at sexy women always equal sex to some people on this forum.

Just because you find a woman attractive enough to see her dress sexy means that you wank your dick to her uncontrollably.

Or maybe you do who knows, but this uppity "If you want to see sexy women, watch porn" comeback is just stupid

It's just from people who grew up on WWE women and haven't seen good women's wrestling. For example the knockouts division

Re: Why the sudden desire for fans to return back to the diva days

There aren't that's just coming from those that either can't attract women at all or can't attract women anywhere near as attractive as the women in the WWE.

The whole sex-sells thing is mostly a myth, we already had an era where WWE hired women solely for their looks which was called the Divas era(especially in the 2010s) and people considered anything involving them as "bathroom breaks" and they were never a draw. There was also a time period from 2002 to 2005 where you had Raw which was predominately a wrestling show for the women and Smackdown which was the smut show for the women. The Raw women's division was more popular out of the two.

I don't mind some sex appeal, at the most being a swimsuit competition at the very least photoshoots like they did during the Divas era or even something similar to Vivas Las Divas, Divas do New York or Summerskins. But the women being smutty isn't going to raise ratings or entice interest in the women, what they were doing in 2016-17 on Raw and SD and how the women were booked during the FHW era of NxT would have more people investing in the women.

Cause some people are morons and are stuck in the dark ages. If you want to see women in their underwear for their sex appeal go watch porn or their are plenty of hotter women on Instagram if you women in bras and panties.



Spoiler for Don't be sad it is over, be happy it happened:

Because they're out of touch and stuck in the past. A big problem with wrestling today.

That's a gross generalization that can't be backed up with facts or reality.

I've seen some of the best women's wrestling the world has to offer, and I still don't care. I fast-forward through all women's segments except on PPV. Give me chicks in bikinis. That's an opinion based on personal preference, not a lack of knowledge or awareness.

I know that. I'm the same but usually the most vocal detractors of women's wrestling are people who do have the attitude of women shouldn't wrestle at all and just be sluts. It also tends to be the size guys as well. I don't go out of my way for women but if something gets good reviews I'll watch it.
