Ex-WWE Diva Sunny unimpressed with NXT Diva call-up

Published 6 Comments

It is common knowledge that the views of any WWE Hall of Famer are often welcomed by much of the WWE Universe.

For one previous WWE Diva however, her comments received a huge backlash from the devoted followers of the company who were please with the call-up the NXT Divas recently received.

Sunny speaks out

As Wrestle Zone reports, Tamara Lynn Sytch who is more well-known as former WWE Diva 'Sunny' recently gave her somewhat negative opinion on the NXT Divas who made their hard-earned debut on Monday Night Raw.

Speaking specifically about Charlotte, Becky Lynch and current NXT Women's Champion Sasha Banks, Sunny had the following to say during this past Monday's episode:

"Ok…….who else thinks the two new red/purple/orange heads in the diva divisions are buttafaces??? and charlotte (Ashley) really has in ring talent???"

Sytch, who took to her Facebook page to express her feelings soon found herself on the back foot as she brought on a number of mixed responses.

This however, did not seem to faze the 42-year-old as she proceeded to say:

"I've never been a fan of women's wrestling..leave it to the men..and my opinion of how someone looks is my opinion...as if no one has ever judged me?? please dude"

Sunny certainly made her uncommon opinion of the NXT Divas' call-up clear as she went onto say how people do not understand 'what a diva should be' before explaining how she adores Lana.

The WWE Hall of Famer's words were met with a lot of negative reaction with many WWE fans stating that she probably had this opinion because she was jealous of the careers the current WWE Divas have.

Important role 

During her time with WWE, Sunny played a prominent part in redefining the importance of females within professional wrestling.

A highly outspoken and successful manager, she managed three teams to the World Tag Team Championship but, as shown on WWE.com, was never one to shy away from expressing her thoughts:

“My definition of a Diva is that all-around, well-rounded performer...the girls who came before me were so one dimensional.

"I could get in the ring and have a match, I managed at ringside, I co-hosted TV shows, I did broadcasting, I did the modelling. I was the first one."

Although claiming herself to be the first real Diva is a hugely bold statement, it re-emphasises what Sunny was and is best known for; being a fierce character who spoke her mind. This is what ultimately caused her to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame four years ago.
