There is no question that the Divas division of WWE is less popular and carries a lot less focus than the men's area of the industry.

It is difficult to see this changing any time soon given the various issues regarding injury and other concerns, which WWE currently has to deal with in the main section of the company.

Stratus' view 

In an interview she gave this week, WWE Divas legend Trish Stratus gave her take on the current women's division of WWE during a conversation on the "Turnbuckle Weekly" podcast with Chuck Carroll.

The WWE Hall of Famer said: “Right now you see the girls with the girls, which is fine, but you can only do so much with the same characters. Unfortunately, they don’t have super developed characters at the moment."

Stratus did however imply that a change may well come soon for the Divas and that now would be the right time for that to happen.

"The potential is there because there’s some great workers. That’s what we had at the moment things shifted for us. We had the right things." 

No focus

For fans of WWE, the Divas division is rarely something which is discussed in a positive nature and with the case of certain pay-per-view events, the Divas match is often something members of the WWE Universe would prefer to be over with quickly, or not exist at all.

One of the main problems with fans and the WWE Divas is the lack of depth the division holds. At present, it does boast a number of talented Superstars, but in comparison to the other area of WWE, there are very few wrestlers at all.

With this in mind, there are ultimately less female wrestlers for fans to develop an interest for and even when they do, they will rarely see them in matches or find much focus around their match at all. 

As a result there really is only one solution for WWE; to bring back a Divas legend or two in order to promote the division and get it back in the spotlight.

Though this area of the industry will never be on the par with the men's, a move like this would surely give it the boost it needs before it is forgotten about entirely.
