With the surprise return of the Bella Twins and all the talk on the internet of WWE contacting former Divas for big returns much like the Bellas, Team OSD look at former WWE Divas we’d like to return to the WWE and why.
Kristen’s pick: With the way the Divas are being treated these days, I don’t think anyone needs to be brought back to be honest. But if I must choose? Kharma would be at the top of the list. Everyone was starting to take interest in the Divas division again when she debuted and that was cut short. Yet to this day people are still talking about her. She was more over than all the Divas combined – and this includes the Golden Girl Kelly Kelly! In her one-month stint she made a lasting impact….. and I would like to see her get a second chance at it.
Marcella’s pick: My choice would be Raquel Diaz as she did not have a true chance to shine, because of her personal ambitions to leave the business. I think she would make an excellent addition to the main roster. Her exfoliating ugliness was marvelous and I wish to have seen it expanded. She would have redefined what a Diva is. I think she would have gained an enormous amount of skills through her experience on the main roster, which would have helped in her in-ring performance. I really hope to see her return one day soon to learn her wrestling craft and make a name for herself. Plus, she’s a Guerrero!
On TNA Today, Gail Kim is the special guest where she accepts a plaque for placing first on the PWI Top 50 Females list of 2012. However, her moment is ruined by a fellow Knockout… a certain Knockouts champion!
To see the full list, continue on after the cut.
Tonight marks RAW’s 1000th episode, and with that comes at least 1000 Divalicious moments that we’ve loved over the years. After thinking long and hard and going through the list lots of times, we’ve managed to come up with and shorten it down to just fifteen Divalicious moments that we really love and in no particular order, here they are..
GET THE TABLES! YES!
Just recently, the Diva who has been getting all the attention is former NXT contestant, AJ Lee. The self proclaimed ‘Geek Goddess’ won the hearts of two (well three if you include Kane?) men in CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. After they refused to give her the attention she so desired, she told WWE Diva Eve Torres she’d show the world how to get attention. She did just that by shoving the two men of her dreams through a table.
DISS THE DIVA
In 2004 when the first Diva Search was underway, the final four Divas were picked – Carmella, Christy, Amy and Joy. All throughout the contest (for some unknown reason) all of the contestants hated Carmella with a passion. They had a challenge called Diss The Diva, where they had thirty seconds to diss the Divas in the ring. It turned out to be more like Diss Carmella! Every single girl ripped her to shreads in this segment.
WWE.com has ranked the top devastating submission holds and out of TWENTY-FIVE, there are no mentions of Divas! With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of the top 5 DIVALICIOUS submission holds seen from our Divas and Knockouts.
#5 – NATALYA
SHARPSHOOTER Watch: #1
The Sharpshooter hold may have been ranked number one on WWE.com’s version of the submission rankings, but Nattie’s leg lock is probably the least devastating out of the Diva submission holds ranked.
Dual Knockout Champion Gail Kim got a slice of the media action when she was interviewed by Zoo, a lad’s magazine in the UK. They discussed British food, women’s wrestling – where she mentions the likes of Victoria, Jazz and Trish Stratus – and more. To read the full article click here.
What are your thoughts on how women’s wrestling is represented in WWE?
Well, it always changes. I was very fortunate to be part of a great era where there was Trish Stratus, Victoria and Jazz. Just now it seems that the women’s division has hit a bit of a lull. But the ‘Knockouts’ division in TNA has really rejuvenated women’s wrestling. It became an overnight success. We just had this magically chemistry with the fans, they just loved it. I think fans just wanted serious women’s wrestling because it wasn’t there.
You were among the first group of women to establish the ‘Knockouts’ division. How does it feel to be back in TNA?
It was like I had been on a long vacation. I definitely believe that everything happens for a reason. Put it this way, if I didn’t leave TNA the first time for the other company then I would never have met my fiancée. Now I am rejuvenated and, I am ready to help and contribute, maybe spark a fire under all of us to have some kick-ass matches.
The direction of the ‘Knockouts’ division shows how important and how serious the company takes women’s wrestling. The fact that we have tag-team belts as well as the main title really represents how much talent we have in the ‘Knockouts’ division. TNA appreciates us and that is shown with how strongly we are represented. We want to change how people think of women’s wrestling. Unlike other companies we get the exposure, time and the opportunity to go out there and wrestle for the fans.
There’s so many talentled ladies to choose from, but here goes! Leading my team would be NXT Diva Maxine. Maxine is a nasty, conniving woman but it goes in her favour. She knows what she wants, and she wants to be on top. She would bring the brains to the group, coming up with devious plans and good game tactics. Plus, she has a mean finisher! Up next is Nikki Bella. Nikki and her twin sister Brie, are a naughty package deal full of hair pulling and switch-a-roo’s. If Nikki’s hurt, she can easily switch with Brie, in effect, Brie would be the sixth member to the five woman team that the referee doesn’t know about! Cheating? So what!
Bringing royal gloves, ridiculous crowns and banchee like screams to the team is the ‘Killer Queen’ Madison Rayne. Rayne’s a multi-time champion and she didn’t get her ‘Killer Queen’ nickname from nowhere, she ended the careers of two Knockouts and is the longest reigning Knockouts champ. Would you really wanna mess with her? Rosita‘s my fourth choice. She’s a wee firecracker, ready to blow up on someone. The crazy lady brings the speed and a unique fast paced, high flying offence like nobody else.
Bringing the pain to their opponents and finishing off my team would be Jazz. The former champion isn’t someone any Diva wanted to step in the ring with. She’s intimidating and full of aggression. The team will be managed by the vindictive, smart and powerful Karen Jarrett. If the team can’t get the job done, then she sure will.
