It seems to have been a whirlwind of a week in WWE after AJ Lee announced her surprisingly premature retirement, many fans wondered how #GiveDivasAChance would continue. 

It seems one WWE fan and Hall of Famer, Mick Foley, still has high hopes for the division even without their trendsetting diva.

Foley took to his official Facebook page where he called on everyone to make 2015 the Year of the Woman in WWE.

Year of the Women

"LET'S MAKE 2015 THE YEAR OF THE WOMAN! WWE has lost one of its most unique and valuable assets with the retirement of AJ Lee. But anyone who has seen the recent WWE NXT product knows there are women bursting at the seam of progress - ready to become the next AJ, the next Paige, the new Natalya. LET'S CREATE A WOMEN'S DIVISION! LET'S MAKE 2015 THE YEAR OF THE WOMAN!"

Foley also talked about his support for Alundra Blayze and her Hall of Fame speech as well as saying that she should become the new General Manager. 

The former hardcore superstar is backing current NXT talents like Charlotte, Sasha Banks, Bayley and Emma to make an impact on the main roster.

With AJ gone, the WWE has announced there will be a battle royal to announce the number one contender for Nikki Bella's Divas Championship, that will take place this week on Raw and could see the debut of Charlotte as well as the return of the likes of Emma and Tamina Snuka. 

WWE need to build on the legacy that AJ Lee created when she proved that the glass ceilings could be smashed and you didn't have to be a Total Diva to be Divas Champion, hopefully this means that WWE will give opportunities to the women who prove they have what it takes in the ring regardless of the looks or whether they fit into WWE's ideal diva category.

Charlotte to Star?

Charlotte is the perfect example of this because she doesn't fit into WWE's usual box that they put divas in, yet she is one of the best in-ring performers they have and could have a headline feud on the main roster if given the chance.

#GiveDivasAChance is not just about giving some divas TV time, it's about allowing the divas that don't usually receive the support they deserve and allowing the fans to decide if they are good enough, hopefully WWE will allow this to happen and the divas division will be able to find it's never trail blazing trendsetter to latch onto.
