Here I am again, talking about the divas, but i do love them, most of them....so here we go....
It is arguable that the divas division is better then it was but not better then it has ever been. Actually, scratch that, it is clearly not the best it has ever been. This statement is puzzling to the majority of WWE viewers. Some people do not even care about the divas, which is a sad story. No one can deny back in the attitude era and even up through Michelle McCool and Beth Phoenix the majority of fans liked the divas. Nowadays it can go either way. I for one will always stand behind the divas division and let me tell you why:
The divas roster contains 13 wrestlers. Well 12 wrestlers and Rosa Mendes. Lets be honest, she will never amount to anything. This does not include JoJo as she is now reported to be in NXT, and lets be honest that is where Eva Marie should be. Regards they have the talent to have a great division. The problem is the booking.
Aj Lee: I mean how can we deny her ability. She, along with Kaitlyn (who i will get to in a minute) pretty much carried the divas division in 2013 and saved some credibility of it. The rivalry between these two were getting fan reaction that the divas hadnt seen in a few years. Seriously, go back and watch. Watch the Payback match where Aj beat Kaitlyn for the title. It was a decent almost 10 minute match (which we know is shocking for a divas match) that had a lot of back and forth action with both women kicking out of each others finisher. The match also told a story with Kaitlyn blowing a kiss to AJ instead of pinning her for the win. These two women also went back and forth between Kaitlyn's "secret admirer" and they even had a contract signing for the divas title which was the first time that was done in history. Then what happened? Kaitlyn got buried. She was barely used. One of the top contenders was swept under the rug. Aj was still holding strong until about the past two months. Aj has gotten boring, really boring. Is her talent still there? Absolutley! However she barely uses the mic anymore. The storytelling is gone. Now it has become an issue. There was reports that Aj was in trouble or maybe its because she is with punk who has been reported to be unhappy with his position. All of this is rumored. Regardless of the problem this has made the title and division lessen its worth. Bad booking, Talent is there.
Natalya: Sigh...All I can do about Natalya is shake my head. This woman has more talent in her pinky then Kelly Kelly had in her whole anorexic body. Yet Kelly Kelly has a longer reign with the Divas title then Nattie has. "Shake my head" Natayla is clearly a fan favorite. Everyone wants her to be a champ and wants her to have the career she deserves. This woman wants it, did you watch her drunk voice mails she left on Stephanie's phone on Total Divas? If you didn't it was hilarious. Regardless, she has proven that she is great, but instead of them focusing on her talent they had her in such gimmicks as passing gas. Really WWE? This woman deserves to be on top and deserves to have a hall of fame career but she will not unless they book her in matches and in story lines that mean something. Bad booking, Talent is there.
Tamina Snuka: This poor woman is only used when they have no one to put on tv. I mean look how she got her current role, Layla has gone inactive (for whatever reason) and Tamina was put with Aj instead of Layla. Tamina gets booked in matches when there is no other diva around at that moment. Ms. Snuka has a lot more talent then to be the "fill in" for the division. She will end up getting a month worth of a storyline with someone, go for the title, lose, and be done for a few more months. Please do not let this woman leave the WWE without at least holding the title once. Bad booking, Talent is there.
The Bella Twins: I know what some of you are thinking, they are talent-less, worthless, models, reality stars who will never amount to anything. To be honest, I use to think that also. Before they came back from quitting. Now a lot of people say they have been pushed due to who they are dating. I doubt that. I have changed my opinion of them 100%. They came back using submission holds and have really improved from their previous in ring skills. The potential is incredible for them. However once again Bad booking, Talent is there. Brie was holding her own when Nikki was injured, however she never won the title from AJ. Even though I feel like AJ has deserved to hold the title this long, I wish Brie would have been able to shine to her full potential when Nikki was out. Future storylines that could work is if they put Brie in the storyline with the Wyatts. I have been saying since day 1 that "sister abigal" should be Paige. Bray and Paige vs Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella? This is something I wouldn't mind seeing. A storyline to break up the Bellas would be good also. Bella vs Bella I feel like they both could work the crowd and get them their own individual fans. They are clearly being trained by Sara Del Rey and it is paying off.
The Funkadactyls: Now Naomi is clearly above Cameron but she also botches on occasion. Regardless I feel these ladies have tremendous talent. Cameron is getting better, and Naomi should be going for the gold. Since they have broken away from Tons of Funk they have become even better and more recognizable. (even though Total Divas helped out also) Naomi has the drive, the look, and the talent. She reminds me a lot of Jacqueline but not as rough around the edges. Even though they have been focused on a little bit lately they also haven't been used to their potential. Bad booking, Talent is there.
WWE really dropped the ball on Kaitlyn. They have been focused to much on Total Divas and the funny thing is that talent hasn't even really been used correctly either.
If the WWE ever wants another Trish, Lita, Victoria, Mickie or Molly they better get it together. With future stars like Emma and Paige waiting in the wings the division can not afford to go down the tubes.
Bottom line...the Talent is there. Bad booking
