    Now let me start out by saying, I dont entirely disagree with your post. I like Divas who I find attractive more so than others. I don't really judge "wrestling" to choose my favs at all. Guys it is purely entertainment along with being different. For girls, obviously the one who I think is the hottest.

    However, diva feuds I enjoyed in the past were actually entertaining. I looked forward to see the results and the matches. Sable vs Luna was a great feud that revived a women's division that was dead after the belt in the garbage can on Nitro. Luna tied Sable to the ring post along with putting marker or whatever all over her face. Always getting pulled apart and so on. These girls we wanted to see go at it more so than the guys. Check out WM14. Sable vs Jaqueline w/Marc Mero who used to be with Sable at the time. She cut Sables hair aka long ponytail and put it in hers. Don't try to tell me that you didn't want to see her get revenge. Same goes for Lita vs Trish when the pregnancy with Kane came up. You waited months to see Lita get her hands on Trish. With all the fat jokes, baby shower, among other things to torment Lita. Hell, Victoria vs Trish, both models for years. 1 was jealous cuz she received WWE contract first among other things. Mickie vs Trish was similar as well, but with Mickie vs Trish being more about her being a crazy fan of Trish's.
    You make a good point. I will agree that those examples you listed were good feuds and I enjoyed them as well. However, all of those feuds you mentioned involved Trish and Sable which in my book, get a 10/10 in the sex appeal category. Maybe I am wrong though, perhaps those two could have been replaced with less attractive divas and those feuds would have gotten over just as much as they did. On top of that, I will also admit that I really like AJ and loved her as the crazy girlfriend and Raw GM. I am also looking forward to seeing what WWE ultimately does with Summer Rae and what will happen when Paige is inevitably promoted from NXT.

They need more divas...What about a Diva Stable?
    Honestly, I don't know how a diva stable would do. I cannot recall there ever being one so I guess if anything, it would be something new which at least would generate some interest. On the other hand, it seems like WWE only keeps about 5 to 10 divas on TV regularly so it could turn into the stable against everybody not in the stable (though that may still be better than the current diva angles now).

    You mentioned Alisha Fox, the less I see of her the better. Such a waste of a spot on the WWE roster - unattractive, unskilled, and just useless in storylines because she flip-flops between face and heel roles for no reason.

    There's plenty of wanking material out there for you one handed surfers.

    I'll await the return of wrestling to the division instead.

    Firstly, I agree that the Knockouts division is greatly overrated by the IWC, especially in it's current state; however, I still think it is vastly superior to the Divas division of today. Hell, the NXT Divas division is vastly superior to its WWE counterpart. (Side Note: Off the top of my head I would say that the Mickie James vs. Tara cage match that main evented an episode of Impact a while back was a seriously great Knockouts match.)

    Secondly, I think you make some good points here; however, I think you missed a key point. The thing that really made the Divas division great during the Attitude and Ruthless Aggression eras was the fact that it had a mixture of everything. Not only were the storylines much better, but they had a mixture of divas that were either (a) skilled in-ring performers (Jazz, Ivory, Jackie, Lita, etc.) (b) overtly sexual eye candy (Torrie, Stacy, Candice, Sable, etc.) or (c) the rare mixture of both (Mickie, Trish, McCool, Victoria, etc.) that made those storylines all the better. That is what made the Divas division so great and what currently makes the Knockouts and NXT divisions far better than the WWE's, the mixture that kept both hardcore wrestling fans and horny young males interested.

    That being said, I agree with your main argument that the thing the WWE is missing is sex appeal. I mean, do I long for the old days of gorgeous women in Bra & Panty matches or storylines with heavily implied lesbianism (a la Mickie/Trish, Dawn/Torrie)? Of course I do. However, I agree with Ozzy above that the days of openly overt sexualization are, for the near future at least, long gone. Any sexualization in the WWE's current state will have to be subtle. With that being said ...

    1000% "YES" to this! Oh, and more Summer Rae in those sexy gowns is sure to help as well.
