WWE desperately needs to save its Divas Division

Published 8 Comments

There is little argument that the WWE Divas Division is in dire straits and seems to be at the very bottom of the company's list of priorities.

It seems as though WWE have very little idea at all just how much of a waste having no real focus on the Divas week in week out on its programming is.

This is not least because of the negative effect it has on the WWE Universe, but also because of the detrimental impact on the female wrestlers themselves.

Whenever they choose to solve this issue, which sadly does not look to be any time in the near future, WWE need to look to NXT for answers.

When Bayley overcame Sasha Banks to emphatically become NXT Women's Champion at WWE NXT Takeover Brooklyn some weeks ago, the two wrestlers put on an unquestionably memorable match.

In what many have described as one of the best women's matches in the history of professional wrestling, these two NXT Divas proved just how impressive the professional female wrestlers of today can prove to be when given the chance.

Change time 

With this in mind, although its PG rating has meant WWE has come a long way since the days of a bikini contest in the ring, it has unfortunately also left behind more recently, some of its best story lines.

The WWE Divas Division has never been the most important aspect of the business to many fans but since the company has gone about wasting its Divas Revolution as it is, it has sparked a huge response from the WWE Universe.

This has not been without good reason. When Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Charlotte burst onto the scene earlier this year it seemed we and the Divas were destined for some great matches.

This hope was soon diminished however as now, any Divas match on WWE programming seems to be scheduled because it has to be instead of being utilised in a positive light.

At this point in time, it appears WWE's creative team feel they have enough angles to prioritise over this division.

But that is one of many problems - it is not as if the writers are putting one angle aside; it is an entire division of the company which they are ignoring.

No positives 

As a result, this proves a negative move not only for the female superstars or the fans but for the creative team itself.

It is an upsetting thought that an area of the company which holds so much potential is so easily wasted for such a long time as it is deemed to be acceptable by those in charge.

One thing we can be certain of is that this kind of negativity would not have been tolerated during the days when Trish Stratus and Lita were paving the way for why female wrestlers deserve just as much focus as the males.

Ultimately if WWE want to please their fans and continue to have them buying their Divas merchandise in the long run, they need to act fast with regard to this issue before it gets worse.
