WWE have their priorities wrong with Divas

Earlier this year when the Divas Revolution came to the WWE Universe, fans of the company were hopeful that something positive was coming for the female talent.

With the likes of Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch making their mark as the newly-promoted ex-NXT Divas, the current female wrestlers on the roster seemingly, had reason to be worried.

Fast forward a few months however, and the mark which was apparently made has all but been forgotten about.

Instead, and as unfortunate as it is, those NXT Divas appear to have merged into the mess which WWE calls its Divas Division, with not one female superstar being a high enough priority to those in charge.

No reward

These wrestlers have the same schedule, are on the road for the same amount of time and work just as hard on their regime as the male WWE talent but receive very little credit for doing so.

Week in, week out, WWE use this area of the company to produce filler matches or segments involving somewhat embarrassing and rather irrelevant, microphone work.

This feeling of neglect has not been helped by the choices WWE seems to have made with regard to what it is their Divas should be used to promote.

Wrong idea 

Instead of it being a great work ethic combined with incredible wrestling ability, the female talent has become subject to wearing skimpy clothing and average story lines on Total Divas.

Although Total Divas does provide more of an insight for a member of the WWE Universe as to what life is like as a female wrestler for the company, the show's staged scenes and uninteresting plots make it as hard to watch as a wasted three-minute match.

Even if the Divas of today are not going to compare to the female wrestlers during the time of Lita, Trish Stratus and Chyna, it is not to say they do not deserve a push in the right direction.

Although there may be some female wrestlers who still have a long way to go, there are Divas such as Natalya, Charlotte and Sasha Banks who are simply not being rewarded by the company for all that they do.

This view can be supported by the latest news as reported by Wrestling News Post; that Pro Wrestling Illustrated has ranked Nikki Bella at number one on their PWI Female 50 List.

This may well be a big achievement for one-half of the Bella Twins, but it should in turn mean that she benefits from it in some way via her in-ring action.

Ultimately, although WWE does not seem to agree, as with the male talent on the roster, it is what we see in the ring that is most important to both the company and its fans and the Divas' talent should certainly not be seen as an exception.
