WWE should forget about the term 'Diva' altogether

Despite having several options to choose from in the near future, WWE is still, it seems, lost with regard to what to do with its Divas Division.

Although the company's creative team do allow the female wrestlers a degree of respect with some plausible story lines and worthwhile matches every so often, it is clear these Superstars are not their priority.

Not important

WWE has reason now more than ever to pay more attention to its female talent, as far too many members of the WWE Universe are becoming hung up on what really is an irrelevant subject.

For several months now, whenever a female WWE wrestler has been interviewed, the question as to whether they agree with the term 'Diva' seems to have been asked more often than not.

This question has been asked so often in fact, that it in turn has made the subject even more mundane to discuss. Despite what many have been lead to believe, it doesn't deserve to be the biggest talking point with regard to these talented women.

The latest female wrestler to have been asked about this topic is none other than current holder of the NXT Women's Championship; Bayley.

Bayley's view 

As Cageside Seats reported, during a chat with Ted Gruber of FanSided, everyone's favorite Hugger revealed that she is fine with the term 'Diva' being used.

The 26-year-old explained:

"It doesn't bother me. The only reason personally I would like it to go back to women's -” it's what I grew up with...

"It's not like I don't like the term Diva, it's what you make of it. I would like to continue what I have now which is [being] the Women's Champion."

Bayley certainly has a point in that the effect of the term itself is dependent on the person who is using it.

Whilst this is true, the focus on this term has in fact detracted from the incredible talent which makes up the female Division of WWE today.

If the current female talent on the roster were given the opportunity and focus to not only showcase their impressive in-ring abilities, but also their ability to develop an interesting story line, the term 'Diva' could still be used without question.

Moving forward

This is why WWE has the capability to turn the focus away from this topic and ultimately, enable followers of the company to pay a lot more attention as to what is actually important in relation to the female wrestlers at the WWE.

At this stage in the history of WWE, the current branding of these hardworking wrestlers as Divas coming across as detrimental.

WWE has the opportunity to bring up hugely talented stars from NXT such as Bayley, and use them in a way which would be beneficial to both the wrestler and the company, as well as concentrating on what is really important; the talent of the wrestlers.
