Yeah, isn't Eve basically the entire Divas division at this point? Or, at least, the only one they've given even the basest amount of credibility to?

Did something happen, or was her push of the last few months them trying to keep her around? I mean, honestly, AJ and Vicki are the highest profile women in the company, but Eve was their 'wrestling' Diva. After the departures of the past year, I couldn't even name more than 3 women 'wrestlers' that are still employed. Might be time to just shit-can the belt, honestly.

Yeah, basically. That division is in pretty bad shape when they give one of Brodus Clay's dancers the title shot at their last PPV.

I think Layla, Tamina, Natalya, Kaitlyn, AJ, Rosa & Brodus Clay's dancers are the only divas they have left.

At this point, just let the belt go away. Otherwise, it's going to be treated as a joke like they did the Cruiserweight title before they finally ended it(where Hornswoggle was the champ).

It's the 20th anniversary show, maybe they'll call in Trish or Lita to show up, win the title, then "retire" it.

I think that Claudio wants to do actual wrestling than carrying a guy with 5 moves like cena or ryback. From the little bit i got to know him working indy shows he was on a few years ago, he seems more interested in working good matches as opposed to working crappy high profile ones.

Fun fact: On top of everything else, I'm an ex pro wrestler too :P


I think Ryback is slowly getting better but I completely understand where you and him are coming from.

It wasn't until I saw Cesaro facing Sheamus on an episode of Raw where I truly started to appreciate the guy. Up until that point, Cesaro's opponents were small and quick so to see Antonio fight someone more his size and take bumps instead of being the dominant fighter was a nice change of pace.

I even mentioned this in the chatroom (Whatever happen to those?)

But they announced earlier in the week (on TV as well) Eve was defending against Kaitlyn on RAW.

Doesn't mean someone won't take her out.

It's really sad to see what's happened to the Women's Division in WWE over the years. When you go from ladies like Lita and Trish holding the belt and putting on great matches to burying and releasing Beth Phoenix and farting Natalya, that's just an act of sheer sabotage.

Random question:

As wrestling fans, what would you guys think of a wrestling game, with an over-the-top storyline, containing drug use as power ups?

I think it sounds rather realistic.:lol:

In a nod to Harvey Whippleman, it'll actually be the cross-dressing "Hornswoggirle" that gets the Divas strap tonight.

I think the best way for them do handle Eve leaving is to "dig up" and old fan favorite from the past and let them win it and then either drop it to a newer star for the rub or just end the Divas all together as well. My pick for them to "dig up" would be

Can we bring back Kharma now?


Her interview on Cabana's AoW podcast a few weeks ago was pretty solid; I never pegged her for your typical ultra sassy "aw hell naw" black girl, but she certainly lets that side of her through in the interview. That's what I like about Cabana's podcast; it humanizes the wrestlers in pretty significant ways.

I almost don't want her back right now, though. WWE has done so much to harm the women's division that bringing her in won't turn around the severe dearth of any wrestling talent whatsoever; and beyond that, WWE deserves to be stuck with a modest selection of the clumsy dimwitted bikini models they currently have. De-emphasizing their wrestlers being able to *wrestle* drove away a number of talented women over the past few years, and they deserve to suffer as a result of their overemphasis on tits and ass instead of in-ring talent.

Think of it this way: WWE's women's division is so bad that Kelly Kelly and Maria Kanellis are "seasoned veterans" by today's standard.

Also, Kelly Kelly is hands down one of the worst women's wrestlers I've ever seen.

Lastly, if I were WWE I'd be on the phone to Angel Williams stat. She really grew and improved in TNA. Hotshotting the belt onto, say, Lita won't do much for WWE long term.

I always thought that T&A was 90% of the reason for the Divas existing in the first place. They've never seemed overly concerned with how well they can wrestle IMO.

Yes and no - certainly all "Sooperstars™" pass some kind of looks test, for the most part. Big, beefy, super muscular dudes that get Vince McMahon all hard will get a million chances, while El Generico and Kassius Ohno probably will not.

So I wouldn't single out female wrestlers as being subject to beauty standards. Most wrestlers are.

I constantly hear all this talk about how great Lita was and all I remember her was being out of control in the ring, getting hurt and/or nearly hurting herself or her opponents. What is this revisionist history you all speak of?

It wasn't cut off halfway. He said "the internet champion isn't on Raw, but Dr. Shelby is." It was the last one shown and they faded it quickly though, so I definitely agree that it was done to needle him.

A frieno once said Lita in the ring looks like a cat being hit by a car, and I've yet to see a more accurate description.
