Diva Divison Disappearance.....

Rating: 3 votes, 2.00 average.
The Diva’s Division, which was once held in high regard, hasbecome an afterthought in an industry where it had once flourished to newheights and expectations. It is ashamewhen you think of how entertaining the division once was in the past and now has floundered to the bottom of the creative wheel, with seemingly no desire ofmaking a comeback. In the attitude era, the women were introduced as sexobjects to draw attention to the show with pillow fights and lingerie contests,but after a while diva’s become prominent, setting the audience up for the someof the most electrifying matches in WWE history. For Example, for thefirst time ever during the attitude era, the main event on Raw was awomen’s championship match between Trish Straus and Lita. Keep in mind that this is atime when The Rock, Stone Cold, and Triple H were all relevant and in theirprime, which makes this match even more prominent.

There were many ups and down in the diva’s division in regards to personalities and attributes, but it was always nice to see the influx of female talent that could actually wrestle. Unfortunately, nowadays during the diva’s matches there are the infamous chants of, “You can’t wrestle” or “boring”, keeping the crown disinterested and heading for a bathroom break. I recall, not too long ago, watching a cage match on TNA involving Mickie James and Madison Rayne and thinking to myself, “Wow, this is what has been missing in the WWE.” There was electricity in the arena and a sense of interest in the diva ranks ( Knockouts ) that has been nonexistent for many years. However, Vince McMahon seems to be more obsessed by the looks of the diva division, ala Eva Marie, instead of the physical attributes and abilities of it as a whole. I would think this is the perfect opportunity to add more diva wrestling relevancy now that Raw has a 3 hour time slot, but instead we are still stuck watching Tensai and The Great Khali, to see who can do the best moonwalk.

Obviously, I continue to stand by the WWE product and will continue to be an avid fun who watches daily. I will be hoping for the day the diva divisions takes a more prominent role in the show again or at the very least, shows a little commitment to being involved in wrestling again, not just entertainment. In essence, this would provide the fans with a division of excitement and unpredictability, not just a distant memory of what it was once perceived.

    Firstly that Lita v Trish match was 2004. The first Diva match to Main Event a WWE show was Smackdown between Jaqueline and Steph in 2000, the first Diva match to Main Event Raw was Lita v Steph also in 2000. So both of these featured the owners daughter. Awesome.

    Knockouts used to be great, before they stripped the division down to five members.

    Go watch some NXT for decent women's wrestling.

    When I was talking about a main event, I meant first time a Diva's championship match was headlined. if I remember correctly Lita won the title that night. As far as the knockouts, yes they were superb when they had the whole division, now not so much.

    Yeah both those Steph matches were Championship matches also.

    They could spice things up and add interest with a swimsuit contest one of these days on RAW. It would work if done right. The only issue may be that half the roster nowadays is someone's daughter and that may cause problems. That and half the Divas today are thicker than past ones if ya know what I mean.

    1)Trish and Lita main eventing was done during the RA Era, not the Attitude Era

    2)The Divas division won't be revived until HHH takes control over WWe, until then, its a joke. The only Divas fans seem to care about are Summer,AJ and Vicke...and up until a few ago, NONE of them were involved in the Divas Division.

    Why does HHH taking over have anything to do with the success of the Diva's Division? Divas don't really equal ratings when their not doing Bra & Panties matches, Evening Gown matches, and Lingerie Pillow Fights.

    1)HHH stated that he wanted to hire real women wrestlers

    2)The KOS haven't done any of those type of matches and yet, the normally score TnA's highest ratings
