With the current Divas Division of WWE having been in a state of disarray for some time now, the company still seems to be disappointing its fans with every decision regarding the female roster.

Whether it be producing the same, repetitive matches or involving female WWE superstars in irrelevant story lines both in and out of the ring, this area of the company is certainly not a high priority for those in charge.

Surprising response 

With this in mind, WWE recently posted a poll on their website; WWE.com, asking its followers who they felt is the greatest Divas Champion of all time.

Without a look at the options, this question suggests the company could mean any female champion throughout professional wrestling history.

In fact, given the choices vary from Michelle McCool to AJ Lee, there are three significant names missing from the list which reiterate that the poll is not about previous Women's Championship holders as well.

Even to this day, if any WWE fan were asked who the greatest female wrestler of all time was, they would surely provide a name of a WWE superstar from some ten or so years ago.

This is because the likes of Nikki Bella, Paige and Charlotte to name a few, have simply not had the desired effect of names such as Chyna, Trish Stratus and Lita from some time ago.

The three latter names, in particular, paved the way for what it meant to be a female wrestler working in a male-dominated industry but gained a following so huge that it meant they were seen as on the same page as many of the men working for the company, too.

For this reason and many more, WWE can see the option on its poll of choosing another answer as being a popular choice by the comments listed. 

This is purely for the fact that it allows fans to mention the names of Lita, Trish Stratus and Chyna, despite them not being specifically classed as WWE 'Divas' but WWE female wrestlers.

As a result, this poll all but confirms the impact these three women along with other names throughout the history of professional wrestling had on those who make up the Divas Division in WWE today.

Leading lady 

For what it is worth, from the options available to fans, AJ Lee is leading the way at the time of writing with an impressive 60% of the vote.

Were the question altered to who is the greatest ever professional female wrestler of all time however, we would be sure to see a huge difference in statistics.

Although the talent of the current female roster should not be dismissed, it will take a huge shift in focus from WWE's creative team for the WWE Divas to have any chance of being as well respected as those ex-female wrestlers who now have their place in the WWE Hall Of Fame.
