With news of AJ collapsing of exhaustion, I think this is a fair point to bring up.. should WWE (and all wrestling companies) put an end to female wrestling?

There's many reasons to do so in my opinion...

  • It's unsavoury. Who wants to watch women attacking each other except psychopath types? You may harp on about "equality", but it's a fact that women are not as physically resilient as men.
  • It sucks.. nobody gives a shit about female wrestling, and it is no more than a side act, or a piss break. The best female wrestlers couldn't even hold a candle to the worst of the guys when it comes to skill. Yes, AJ, Natalya, Gail Kim etc. can all wrestle to a fair standard, but who is tuning in each week to see the latest AJ match?
  • Evidently these women can't cope with such a ridiculous schedule that is even harsh on the gifted male athletes. Having women perform in long, tough on the body matches every single night is quite sadistic if you think about it.
  • Womens wrestling has never drawn and never will. Who would pay to go to a show to watch AJ vs. Brie Bella? Yet, how many sad old men do you think paid to go and stare at Sable's tits in the Attitude Era? (A lot...)

Obviously I am not suggesting women should be removed from wrestling altogether - that would be ridiculous. Who would want to watch a show full of half naked guys without some half naked broads in there to balance things out?

I think the best option would be a return to hot valet/model types to add a bit of eye candy to the show.. think Stacy Keibler, Torrie Wilson etc. Girls who don't wrestle, but bring some much needed femininity to a male-dominated entertainment show, and can have the occasional mud-wrestling or pillow fight match if you need a filler match between main events. They could also just be part of a dance troupe, like the Nitro Girls in WCW, or just part of dramatic storylines based around the wrestlers.

And lets face it, the female "wrassler" types are hardly the most attractive girls WWE can find. Aside from AJ, none of the girls on the roster right now even come close to the aforementioned names like Stacy and Torrie.

If you think about the most successful women in wrestling - Sable, Stacy, Trish etc - what was it that got them over? You think the average guy in the crowd gave a fuck that Sable could do a Sable Bomb :lol? No.. T&A is what gets women over in wrestling.. Guys don't give a shit about female sport. Heck, even most women don't. Just let women embrace their femininity and be valets and dancers instead of trying to force this bullshit wrestling down our throats that nobody wants to watch.

Then just leave the thread. I type a thoughtful and inspired post and you just shit over it because you disagree with something? And you didn't explain why you disagreed either fpalm

Your stupidity had already overwhelmed me by the 1st bullet point that I couldn't continue reading. That really says a lot about the quality of your post.

Anyone who votes "Yes" is an idiot.

Of course not.

All this just because AJ needs to eat a fucking burger?

Yes, and I've felt that way for awhile. Women's wrestling is not something that has ever appealed to me, and never will. But I don't feel this way because AJ collapsed. I've felt this way for years, and because it bores the ever loving shit out of me.

But in all fairness, if it was scrapped it would just be replaced with some other filler e.g. Khali segments.

Thoughtful and inspired, yet shitting all over women's wrestling. Funny how that works.

They should be featured in the roles they are best suited for. For example, Velvet Sky should never wrestle but would make a fine valet, while I could watch Gail Kim or SDR wrestle till the cows come home. Always with the line in the sand mentality around here. Why can't we have both?

Yep, this is true. I never said it would be "replaced" with something better. Just that I have no interest in women wrestling.

This thread had potential......then I read the opening post.

Stupid to even consider scraping the whole division. You just gotta plan your audience out. I always felt the early 2000s was the last time they had the right mix. You had Trish, Lita, Victoria, Jazz, Molly, Gail etc... To do the wrestling side or things while Torrie, Dawn, Stacy etc,.. Handled the eye candy side of out and it worked well. That's the main thing that needs to change.

No, because AJ deserves to be in that ring wrestling, just like most of the others in NXT. AJ chose to do this, so just like everyone on the roster, she knew the risks coming into it. If she truly believes her body can't go on after some near fatal accidents, then so be it. She suffered a concussion due to Brie not too long ago and came back early to continue wrestling long hard hitting matches again, so maybe that's it.

I've never really been too interested in the Divas division. I like some matches, and promos, here and there, but the wrestling aspect of it is usually very forgettable, as is most of the programming related to them.

This might be trolling, but just in case it's serious I'll reply anyway.

  • It's unsavoury. Who wants to watch women attacking each other except psychopath types? You may harp on about "equality", but it's a fact that women are not as physically resilient as men.
Yeah we all know how men are naturally stronger than women, but it's not like they're making women fight men it's women vs women. What about women who enjoy watching males fight each other in the WWE? Are they psychopaths? Ofcourse not.

  • It sucks.. nobody gives a shit about female wrestling, and it is no more than a side act, or a piss break. The best female wrestlers couldn't even hold a candle to the worst of the guys when it comes to skill. Yes, AJ, Natalya, Gail Kim etc. can all wrestle to a fair standard, but who is tuning in each week to see the latest AJ match?
That's your opinion and you're not everybody. I give a shit about female wrestling, especially with the appearance of girls like AJ and the girls on NXT. The best female wrestlers couldn't even hold a candle to the worst guys when it comes to skill? So the Miz is better in the ring than AJ Lee? That's funny. Wanna know something lad? I sometimes skip through RAW and only watch the parts I want to see, and AJ Lee matches happen to be one of them.

  • Evidently these women can't cope with such a ridiculous schedule that is even harsh on the gifted male athletes. Having women perform in long, tough on the body matches every single night is quite sadistic if you think about it.
No, it's not sadistic because these women choose this career and I enjoy watching them in the ring. You're just spewing this dogshit because you are not interested in female wrestling.

  • Womens wrestling has never drawn and never will. Who would pay to go to a show to watch AJ vs. Brie Bella? Yet, how many sad old men do you think paid to go and stare at Sable's tits in the Attitude Era? (A lot...)
I would pay to go watch a show with a good divas match. Not to watch Brie necessarily, but if AJ were in the ring with say Kaitlyn or Naomi or a good female wrestler I would be happy to watch that. And you know what? I'd rather go to a show with a good divas match than watch Sable just jiggle her tits in the attitude era. Maybe you're making these stupid statements because you're a sad old man who thinks women are nothing but fuck buddies.

I think the best option would be a return to hot valet/model types to add a bit of eye candy to the show.. think Stacy Keibler, Torrie Wilson etc. Girls who don't wrestle, but bring some much needed femininity to a male-dominated entertainment show, and can have the occasional mud-wrestling or pillow fight match if you need a filler match between main events. They could also just be part of a dance troupe, like the Nitro Girls in WCW, or just part of dramatic storylines based around the wrestlers.
Ugh, femininity? Really? Yeah because being a woman is all about shaking your tits and making guys get boners right? I'm not even going to bother addressing this fully, considering gender roles are all fucking moronic. I am real glad divas like Torrie Wilson don't really exist in the WWE anymore, these stupid eye candy diva attempts were all fucking moronic anyway. I'll go watch porn or get my girl if I want to get down, not watch the WWE.

And lets face it, the female "wrassler" types are hardly the most attractive girls WWE can find. Aside from AJ, none of the girls on the roster right now even come close to the aforementioned names like Stacy and Torrie.
Why do you think everybody gives a shit if a female wrestler looks attractive? Kharma is ridiculously ugly, yet I still want to watch her wrestle in the WWE. Beth Phoenix wasn't good looking either, yet I enjoyed watching her in the ring. We get it, to you women are nothing but eye candy and if they're not eye candy they can fuck off right? Kharma/Beth Phoenix > Torrie Wilson/Stacy, entertainment wise. You think I'm kidding? I'm not.

If you think about the most successful women in wrestling - Sable, Stacy, Trish etc - what was it that got them over? You think the average guy in the crowd gave a fuck that Sable could do a Sable Bomb ? No.. T&A is what gets women over in wrestling.. Guys don't give a shit about female sport. Heck, even most women don't. Just let women embrace their femininity and be valets and dancers instead of trying to force this bullshit wrestling down our throats that nobody wants to watch.
I don't know why you speak as if you're all men who watch the WWE, and you certainly don't speak for all women either. Torrie and Stacy are nothing but eye candy, whilst chicks like Lita and Trish are actually real female wrestling stars. Who do you think female wrestling fans appreciate more? I know you like Torrie and Stacy more, since you know, you don't care about female wrestling and think women in the WWE should be nothing but eye candy.

There's some AJ fans here think she saved the divas division. Just because she has more in ring time, a divas champion, a heel character, not on a reality show, did a pipebomb, doesnt mean she 'saved the divas divsion' she's just one of the better ones. I don't like it when people call her a 'savior' that word being used is annoying. she is a good wrestler, one of the top best in this era's division but overall not. but i do hope she gets better.
