Top 15 Divas Who Failed In WWE: Where Are They Now?

The "Divas Revolution" might be a term which has turned up very recently to push the failing Divas division with the inflow of superior female talent from NXT, but the actual revolution in women’s wrestling happened almost 2 decades ago. With the beginning of the raunchy, badass Attitude Era, Vince McMahon decided on making the women one of the focal points of his weekly show on Raw and put them on display for the pleasure of the frustrated wrestling fan who comes to watch the product day in, day out.

This propelled the inflow of more women into the product as the relevancy of the Divas increased by folds with more time being given to them and opportunities being given to Divas to show their value to the audience. It started with sexually-charged matches like the Evening Gown match and Bra and Panties match but gradually became something more productive for the female wrestler, as WWE were keen on signing Divas with a wrestling background and having them put on actual wrestling matches than entertainment programs which they performed during the Attitude Rra. This triggered the beginning of a golden era of women’s wrestling as more emphasis was laid for the women in wrestling, making for some engrossing matches and feuds.

But like the good things, there are always the bad things associated with Women’s Wrestling as things like ‘The Divas Search’ and the inflow of more women based on their looks ruined the point of the uprise in women’s wrestling. Vince’s greed of attracting audiences with his sexy divas often put a stain on women's wrestling  in the company and hampered their image into something more of a sexually attractive product than a sound wrestler. Some Divas who were randomly chosen inspite of not being trained in the ring obviously failed at the product and over the years WWE has seemed to make this greedy mistake a lot resulting in many women failing in the company and having to leave for something better, or a different path in their lives.

What was WWE’s loss would be TNA’s gain, as the promotion were high on promoting Women’s wrestling and Kim fit right into their frame. She soon won their Knockout Tag Titles with Madison Rayne, following which she would also win the TNA Knockout Champion and be the first women in TNA history to hold both the titles at the same time. She remained champion with both for quite sometime, holding the Knockout’s Title for 210 days. She would continue to dominate the division, uniting with Lei’D Tapa and go onto win the TNA Knockout’s Title 3 more times in the next 3 years. Kim is still in TNA and is married to chef Robert Irvine, with their wedding being documented on an episode of the Restaurant: Impossible program. On June 14th, 2016 Gail was inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame making her the first female wrestler to hold the honor as she made for TNA’s Divas revolution from which WWE followed suit.
