Back in the good ole days where women understood what their place was in pro wrestling. The general public doesnt give a damn about womens wrestling. They care about 2 things. 1. Most importantly they care about how they look. The more attractive the better. 2. They care about their relationship to a more popular male wrestler. They are an accessory to male wrestlers and add to gimmicks. 3. They care about whatever storyline theyre in. Generally something catty where they do something nasty and 4. They care about wrestling. Lately they try to act like we even need to see womens wrestling once a week. No one gives a shit. If I want to see people doing wrestling moves I can do with ease I will go down to my local Y.

And before people cry sexism....women don't put fucking acne covered world class thespians in their soap operas or their magic mikes. No they put dudes who can barely string two words together but whose abs could grate cheese. Pro wrestling is a male dominated "sport" mostly men in the crowd, mostly men watching, and has historically been about men. Women wouldnt be flocking to see 50 shades of gray if it starred Jonah Hill. Men don't care if a woman can accurately do an armbar...they care how her ass looks as she gets into the ring. Just like women's soap operas dont care if the Mexican hunk can convey emotion or speak in a non monotone voice...men don't really care if the women can wrestle.

Sorry if I had a daughter I wouldnt let her watch wrestling. It has always been sexist. it has always portrayed women in a negative light, but so does fucking football. Men get to play and women stand on the sidelines and cheer them on. Women dont draw. They are ancillary characters in the show. Something about the Attitude Era made people forget at the core this was supposed to be a rigged version of wrestling. 2 men or teams of 2 would pretend to fight eachother in the ring. So its not really sexist, you dont turn into the NBA and every other quarter there is a quarter of the WNBA. Im all for all these women pooling their money together and forming their own Divas Wrestling show, and see how 8 perverts show up each night for a few months until they realize these 7.5's outta 10 arent gonna strip and then no one comes.

I don't see what's wrong with liking their wrestling. They can have decent matches but WWE's girls today don't know anything about wrestling, just like most of the guys. (Not counting NXT since I haven't watched NXT Women's matches).

But I don't see the point in there being a Women's Division if it comes with a reduction rather than an increase of beautiful content. If they're just going to be the same thing as the males, mainstream fans won't care and there are already women's promotions for that.

The thing is I am not a sexist, but wrestling has never targeted females it targets men and boys. It plays into all of our fantasies of being able to fight our enemies and get the big breasted woman. Its classic escapist entertainment in the same way that many middle aged women watch trashy soap operas or nursing shows where the women sleep with a bunch of hot guys and engage in activities they wish they could do, but would never because of the consequences that happen in a real life society. This was something invented to maybe possibly attract women by using guys theyd find attractive, but never was the plan..."lets push women as if they were the athletes and the draw, give them 15 minute matches, make them important, build storylines around them etc..." Who does that appeal to? Not the women their to stare at Roman and Randy, not the men vicariously living out their childhood superhero fantasies. Not the little boys who dont even understand what theyre arguing over most of the time. Who does it appeal to?

Times change and so do people. The reason why #GiveDivasAChance was trending was that people cared about the women's division and they still do. WWE is missing out to bring in a big demographic by treating the Divas as they do. Other promotions and NXT have shown that women can wrestle and be great on the mic if given the chance. No one is saying to cut out on the eye candy with valets but it's not asking much to give these hard working women a chance.

To be fair, back then, divas was entertaining, and could wrestle too. I guess the PG era means it's basically boring models in the ring (apart from Paige,Natala and AJ). They need to call up the whole NXT roster and let them do their thing, have proper matches and get over. Get rid of shit like the Bellas, Eva Maria, Alicia Fox, Cameron, Naomi, Layla ECT

Why cant we have both? Hire sexy wellspoken models for valets and let the girls who are wrestlers be wrestlers. Could even have a divas division with bra and panties matches and a womens division with real female wrestlers putting on clinics. Really disrespectul to the likes of Paige,Natalya and Charlotte who come from wrestlingfamilies and are amazing in the ring to reduce them to pornacts. Btw if I want to watch nude women I can find them on the internet in a few seconds. I watch wwe for entertainment and wrestling. Not nude chicks.

If they did that, no one would be able to deny that the former division has a total advantage.

You can find wrestling outside of a wrestling show but you need the wrestling show for porn that you can't find outside of the wrestling show?

I don't fucking care what bro-douche approach people have to wrestling. I don't watch it for women's looks. Dunno why so many others want to.
Sadly it's everywhere right now... similar issues in the gaming world drudged up the most vile horrid parts of the internet and it was a flood of chest thumping and grunting. As much as we've made strides, there is still a long long long LONG way to go in many respects.

The only reason these geeks like Paige and Aj is because they jack off to them. They just aren't man enough to admit it. If they looked like Luna or Chyna they would say they suck like the Bellas.

Newsflash, AJ, Paige, Bellas, Emma ALL suck.
Newsflash.. it's your opinoin that many don't share. Also, if you are seriously watching wrestlers only because you are turned on then there is a huge problem.

Nope, you are under the assumption I watch for the Divas. I don't watch wrestling to see the Divas. I don't give a shit about them. If you watch it for the Divas, LOL.
