WWE must incorporate Divas into a Royal Rumble match

Published 2 Comments

When it comes to its Divas Division, WWE is known for not exactly making the talented female wrestlers who make it up a priority, either during weekly programming or at pay-per-view events.

The upcoming pay-per-view event; the Royal Rumble, which is scheduled to take place at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida on January 24th will surely prove no exception to this tendency.

Main event

The main event of the night will be the famous 30-man Royal Rumble match, which this year will historically see the winner crowned the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

There is, however, no rules within WWE stating that this match is just that; one which should be made up of 30 entrants who are all male.

With this in mind, 2016 would be the prime opportunity for WWE to utilise its female talent in this match instead of repeating history by including a female entrant just for the sake of it.

Current WWE Diva's Champion Charlotte would certainly be a force to be reckoned with and would undoubtedly be able to show some of the male WWE superstars up, by eliminating, at least, some of the lower-card names.

The company would need to do just that, as using Charlotte's involvement in the wrong way could well mean disastrous consequences for WWE's Diva's Division, which has often fallen victim to heavy criticism of late.

WWE could even bring back a female legend of the business such as Trish Stratus or Lita, in order to boost the credibility of the current Diva's Division by making their mark in the Royal Rumble match.

Women's Rumble

An alternative approach for WWE to put more focus onto its female talent during this popular pay-per-view event would be to have a separate Royal Rumble match for its female talent.

Whilst this bout would have considerably fewer participants, it would still have the potential to provide a platform for a number of lesser-known female WWE superstars to prove their worth.

In addition, such a match would also enable the previous or even current female NXT stars to make their mark on the main roster, and ultimately prove why they gained such support and respect throughout 2015.

This type of match could well also be the ideal opportunity for Divas icons to make a much-needed return, by having them work well with the female talent of today, on such a big occasion.

Whichever direction WWE choose to take their Diva's Division in during the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event this month, it is clear that there are several options which should be considered as they are more beneficial not only to the wrestlers themselves but for the business, too.
