WWE must act to save Divas division

Published 1 Comments

The Divas section of WWE has been heavily criticised over the last few years for not matching the standard of the division from years ago.

Given the way WWE have presented the female wrestlers' matches and storylines lately, it comes as little surprise that the WWE Universe are rarely interested in what the Divas have to offer.

Quick result

Though WWE promoted a match card with two Divas matches at Survivor Series this past Sunday in St Louis, Missouri, one of them was only to last a matter of seconds before it was all over.

The fact the match lasted seconds was not the only laughable matter; it was the way Nikki Bella managed to win the WWE Divas Title that was out of the ordinary.

In a replica of what happened during Daniel Bryan and Sheamus' match at WrestleMania 28, there was a kiss involved which cost the victim this time around, AJ Lee, her belt.

Nikki's sister Brie was still acting as her twin's slave, and jumped onto the apron to distract AJ, which she did by kissing her, enabling Nikki to perform the Rack Attack before pinning AJ for the win.

Late notice

As if the format for this match doesn't already sound like it was made up at the last minute, it has actually been reported that both Divas found out just minutes before they were due to enter the ring that their match was only going to last seconds.

Realistically if this is true, it is as if the WWE don't appreciate enough the array of talent they have across the Divas division of the industry.

Though it would take a lot for the female WWE Superstars to create matches which live up to the hype of ones involving certain male Superstars, they have still worked just as hard and for as many years as a lot of the up and coming talent within the men's division.

It is for this reason therefore that the female wrestlers deserve as much focus on their matches and as individuals as other WWE wrestlers.

Whether the company plans to have a female legend such as Lita or Trish Stratus return to freshen up the Divas division entirely, it certainly needs to respect its current female roster as much as it did when big names such as these were leading the way for women in WWE.
