WWE Divas: Dolls, Dudettes, and Duds

Lets rewind to 2005. We had only one womens championship, being the Womens Championship, you had the likes of Trish Stratus, Victoria, Mickie James, Molly Holly, Lita, Stacy Keibler, Candice Michelle, and Torrie Wilson, to name some of the women in the WWE spotlight then. Fast forward to 2012, and you have the likes of Kelly Kelly, Eve, Natalya, Layla, Beth Pheonix, Kharma, The Bellas, AJ, Kaitlyn, Tamina, Alicia Fox. Out of everything in the WWE that has EPIC fail written all over it, it's the Diva's of today. Why though?
In 2005, you had a mixture of things. Women who could wrestle, Trish, Victoria, Lita, Mickie. You had women who had the attractive appeal that could help the publicity and out reach of the WWE, Stacy Keibler, Candice Michelle, Torrie Wilson. Now in 2012, don't we have those things? In the form of women who can wrestle you have Beth Pheonix, Kharma, Layla, Tamina, Natalya, and even Kelly Kelly. In the form of publicity/out reach for the WWE, you have The Bellas, Eve, Kelly Kelly. With that being said, what is causing the current Divas division to be a bunch of duds?
Creative, to me it is that simple. Look back at 2005, you had Mickie doing her obsessive lesbian angle with Trish, you had Stacy teaming up with the Superheroes(Hurricane/Rosey), you had Lita involved in the Kane/Edge/Hardy storylines, you had Victoria turning heel(which i think she was always better as). Fast forward to today. You have Natalya "farting" and getting squashed week in and week out, you have Eve involved with...Zack Ryder, and you have mediocre, at best, matches and storylines for the other divas. I feel like there is enough talent that we could actually have a decent to good womens division in the WWE. Cut out the stupid storylines, give the actually women who can wrestle, Kelly, Beth, Natalya, Alicia, Tamina, Kharma, more than 5 minutes in the ring to actually put on a great match for us, and have storylines that matter, and more importantly, highlight the women. I don't like the Bellas, never have never will, but they are great for PR, and storylines, but sucky in the ring. Look at each woman on the roster, focus on what they can do to help the E the best, instead of using them for something that makes no sense what so ever.
Well, hope you all enjoyed reading. I look forward to reading your thoughts and opinions.
