WWE needs to create a clear line between Divas and Women's wrestlers

WWE has recently re-branded their Women's Division and brought back the WWE Women's Championship, retiring the old pink butterfly belt known as The Divas Championship in the process. 

Whilst WWE have pointed out that it is called the WWE Women's Championship, it is not the same Championship that was retired in 2010, this is a new title that will begin its own set of records from WrestleMania 32. 

As well as this new white championship that looks strikingly similar to the male's hotly contested WWE World Heavyweight Championship, WWE have also stated that the word Divas will not be used on WWE TV anymore and instead it will refer to all of its female talent as women's wrestlers, which is wrong.

It is great that WWE are finally stepping away from the term diva, especially considering it was an unflattering term that was used to describe the female talent, but some women on the roster are definitely not ready to be called women's wrestlers. 

The likes of Eva Marie, Cameron and newcomers like Mandy are not ready to step up and be called wrestlers yet, but they come through the business faster because of their involvement with Total Divas, which means that the term Divas should be retained for a select few. 


Total Divas has put a spotlight on the Women's Division and allowed it to step up its game over the past few years, even though many of the women in WWE would never want to be a part of the show. 

There was a rumor a few months ago that Bayley had joined the cast, but thankfully that isn't the case, so WWE could easily class most of the female talent who are a part of the show as The Divas Division and the women who fight for the championship can be a part of the Women's Division. 

Sasha Banks was recently asked about Total Divas and responded in the expected way when she stated that she would never go on the show because she was there to wrestle and she is definitely not a Diva. This is the way many wrestlers like Becky Lynch and current Champion Charlotte also feel about the Women's division and the women's championship. 

WWE needs to make a distinctive line between who the Divas are and who the women's wrestlers are so that fans can be aware of the potential threats to the new Women's Championship.
