WWE must realise Divas of today are not legends

During 2015, WWE did not have much luck with its Diva's Division as any idea which had some credibility to it soon faded into the background of weekly programming.

A number of popular NXT superstars burst onto the scene with the likes of Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and Charlotte all instantly having a big impact with the WWE Universe.

Even something with such big potential as the NXT Diva's Revolution simply did not have a long-lasting effect with fans, however, and ultimately failed to prove to be something useful with regard to the company's female talent.

Lasting legacy

Unfortunate though it may seem, the many fans of WWE have had an understandable tendency over the past year to bring up the success of previous WWE Divas.

When names such as Trish Stratus and Lita are brought up, WWE fans do not think of wrestlers who need to wear skimpy clothing week-in, week-out, in order to get noticed.

These two women set the standard for what it means to be a well-respected female wrestler not least because of their in-ring ability, but because of their character portrayal, too.

It is difficult to believe that in years to come current female WWE superstars such as Paige or The Bella Twins, will be as obvious an option to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame as Trish Stratus and Lita were.

Latest idea

With the struggle between WWE's creative team and its Diva's Division unfortunately already seeming clear heading into 2016, the company's latest idea sees something which once worked well.

Combining male and female talent, whether it be in a Mixed Tag Team match or with a manager of the opposite sex, was often a hugely popular and successful option for WWE to choose in the past.

Doing something similar with the current roster could also work well without doubt, but choosing to combine female talent with a group who came out as possibly the best stable of 2015, is just wrong.

As reported by Inquisitr, WWE could well soon be focusing on bringing together The New Day with Team B.A.D, presumably as a way of helping to boost the female talent.

While some of those in charge at WWE may think this is the right way to go, this is most certainly not the right time to do it.

The New Day had a great year throughout 2015, so to start the next with a team which will undoubtedly prove detrimental to their gimmick makes no sense at all.

As for Team B.A.D, they were never the most popular of groups to come out of the Diva's Division and this idea will surely not do any favors for their leading member, Sasha Banks.

Sasha Banks undoubtedly proved her worth during her time at NXT and emerged as one of the brand's most-loved female wrestlers.

Since her move the main roster, WWE has failed again in utilising one of its superstars with the biggest potential, and this kind of move with Team B.A.D will do nothing but continue that.

While it makes sense for the company to bring back ideas which once worked, they must do so in a way which will not only please fans, but will produce positive outcomes for their wrestlers, too.
