Interesting article on WWE.com discussing the recent rise of the Divas of Doom and the positive reaction they’ve received from ‘purist’ women’s wrestling fans. The article goes on to argue whether or not the Divas division needs saving from ‘model’ Divas.


Stinkfaces. Booty poppin’. If you’re a purist about a woman’s place inside the WWE ring, you must be wondering what Fabulous Moolah is thinking looking down on the Divas division. Would the iconic figure chalk up the current flux of the division on changing times, or would she say, “Someone needs to save this”?


Beth Phoenix and Natalya, the “Divas of Doom,” think so. However, are The Glamazon and third-generation Diva just the two women to call “saviors”?


First, Brie Bella wins the Divas Championship. Diva purists cringed. Then, Kelly Kelly – who has improved markedly inside the ring – netted the butterfly title. Diva purists started pointing fingers and lashing out. This can’t be happening. Not in a division that has seen the likes of Moolah, Trish Stratus, Lita and Melina bear the Women’s Title. How are these “model” Divas getting their names etched in the history books? Do only “pretty faces” matter?

Don’t ever let anyone undermine your hard work, label your character, or set limits to your potential. #BeliEVE!


Diva of Doom, Beth Phoenix (http://diva-dirt.com/tag/beth-phoenix) added:

Its not the Divas Division that needs saving, but the WWE Universe. Myself and @NatbyNature are on a mission to make you change your minds..


As long as I can remember I have worked my butt off and been underappreciated while the crowd adores @RealKellyKelly and @EveMarieTorres…


I am tired of looking and being the best and being passed over time and time again. Im done asking for approval. And just getting started proving my point. #DivasofDoom

Wow @WWE definitely woke up 2 an embarrassing article you wrote… Well u wanted to know everyone’s thoughts @WWEUniverse, Here’s Nikki B’s…


First off…. Um you want me to slap you with all of my awards and championships I have won? I was a #1 athlete… Which other Diva was?


Secondly, Bri & @RealKellyKelly have been the only entertainment that has happened 2 the Diva’s Division & have worked harder than anyone!


Thirdly, I’ve seen 2 girls the past few weeks try as hard as they can to be “models” while us “models” have busted our butts…..


Oh and good luck with the up and coming Divas…. Sure you’ll make a lot of money with them…. Um actually NOT!


Lastly, @RealKellyKelly & Us are better than anyone in the past so Katie Raymond check your self and come read this article to my face! NB

Wow, I just woke up to the craziness! The words spoken by Katie are laughable, but I’m a women who will stand for what I believe in…so…


I know what I’ve given to the fans and that’s all what matters. WWE might think your a bunch of puppets that are persuaded by their words..


I know how you all feel :) good and bad, I love it! I mean if WWE cared about Divas why do we have such little time on tv?


Why were divas such as Mickey James, Melina and Gail Kim released. Why aren’t wrestlers like Sara Del Ray hired? All amazing!…….


Kelly Kelly and myself have worked to hard to have an unknown, untalented writer say the things she did. Katie (whoever) [author of the article] Suck it! Love Brie

Now would be a great time for the great Michelle McCool to come back, we need someone on the level of Beth/Natalya to go against Divas of Doom, if Beth/Nattie always win their matches people will say they're over-rated. If Kelly/Eve beat them people will complain

Brie makes a very fair point. How come when it comes to WWE spring clearing they get rid of talented Divas.

In 2009 it was Candice and Victoria

2010 it was Mickie, Katie Lea, Savannah, Serena, Katie Lea, Jillian and Tiffany

2011 it was Gail & Melina.

No Rosa or Bella Twins released..

Tryouts for Jennifer Blake, Cherry Bomb, Britani Knight, Mercedes Martinez and yet... none of them hired.

Melina may be a slut for all I care, she is still one of the greatest divas ever. And she seems like a really nice person in her videos, there probably is a reason for Morrison to keep her after all the troubles they've had ... or he is just that stupid.
This is probably all a work, like that article about the most boring teams of all time and how Lawler always bashes Otunga&McGillisomething. Or it was supposed to be a work, but the divas didn't know and started this Twitter-mess :D All I know is the writer isn't that stupid to post something that may cost her job.

If this is the Bellas and the others really getting pissed, then this is how I feel. But if it's a storyline, then it could make some interesting television.

Well said. I can't imagine how the Bellas have been working hard last week while Natalya and Beth haven't. They did exactly the same thing they did months ago. Melina did speak some truth though. She regrets having spoken out against the WWE about their Divas division, and she got fired. She was just warning the current Divas to stop complaining the enjoy what you do - because at the end of the day, if you don't like your job, its pointless to be there.

This is probably just a storyline in which the "Models" are being portrayed like the "good girls", the victims so to speak.

And yes, some of them are not really good, some of them had improve, well all of them to a degree, some way more than others but they all train hard, now if you want to shit on how they are awful in the ring, you can do it, but to say they don't work hard, that you can't know, the girls had to work as hard or even harder even for those freaking 5 minutes on TV they do work hard.


http://youtu.be/uTuE-W0uzg4

Just a video to see what they do.

The issue with them is not if they don't work hard, is the error of bringing someone who is not ready and who is learning on the fly. Just see someone like Trish and see someone like Kelly, Kelly is learning on the fly, yes it has been 5 years but those are years in which she was put on matches and even some years with out proper training, Trish was put on matches too, but she trained a lot before being put in anything real and Trish had in Lita The Perfect dancing partner. That is why Kelly working with Beth is good, because she learn form one of the best, is no good for Kelly to wrestle the Bellas because they, like her, are learning on the fly, The best they could do is put The Bellas against Gail or even sign someone as a face so they can learn from someone like that.

The experience is always important, the biggest problem they have is that non of them has any other experience out of WWE, 3 years or even 5 years of 10 minutes top matches are no way to improve. The girls are not the real problem, is the way they are brought in what is the real issue.

Yep, you do that, because the best thing that could happened to her was working with Beth at a high level and not just at a jobber stage, I mean, everyone can crap on Their match at Summerslam, but that was Kelly's best match ever. I know that is not saying much but from Her match with Layla last year to this, that has come a long way.

Sam goes for the Bellas, if they would be given the real chance to work a solid 8 min with Natty that would be something good, I mean not every night if you will, but more often than not.

Eve was better when she was at Smackdown because that allowed her to had a feud with Nattie and with Michelle McCool, if there is any good on her is because she learned form those two and could have continue to do so if they would have allowed her to stay there.

In my view when given the opportunity Eve is good, not Melina good but good, they just need more time there, I know 8 minutes sometimes are too much to ask but hey, better watching them than some lame backstage segment not related to anything.

I'll be keeping an eye out to see how well Kelly, and the rest of the barbie doll Divas improve after working with the talented Divas. Agreed about the longer Divas matches. If they could cut out unnecessary parts of the shows such as superstars who have long entrances e.g. Orton, or even cut out Cena doing the "If you want some, come get some!" thing every week backstage for no reason.

Let me take you back to a good Divas storyline, just for fun. A few years ago, Victoria went on a destruction path, beating Divas in matches left and right. After she won her matches, she would cross off her opponent's name off a list that she carried around. After she had crossed off all the names on the list, she went after the Women's champion, at the time, Mickie James. She lost, but it was a great storyline for the Divas, until the Bellas debuted and fucked her over with the "Twin Magic" thing. This "Divas of Doom" storyline makes me reminisce of that storyline, and I have high hopes for it.
