Goodbye, Divas Revolution. The Women's Revolution has arrived.
Gone are the days of the purple butterfly belt resembling a Bratz Doll accessory. Charlotte is no longer our Divas Champion; she is officially our Women's Champion. Doesn't that have a much better ring to it?
I'll admit, it's going to take some adjusting not calling the women of WWE "Divas", but it's certainly the step in the right direction that WWE had to go in if they are legitimately serious about taking their women seriously again. With the television show Total Divas still doing well, WWE can't completely abandon the term just yet, and that's completely fine. With women such as Eva Marie, Lana, and Miz's wife Maryse back on the roster, the term should stick around because lets face it, Maryse would probably prefer you call her a Diva anyway. In truth, some of the original women of wrestling were just valets anyways, or the old school equivalent of a "Diva".
This got us thinking though. With the recent return of Maryse, it got us wondering if WWE is willing to bring back even more former Divas to help shake things up. Maryse most likely wasn't brought back to the division to wrestle; she seems perfect in her role as Miz's manager, and that's kind of where we want to see her remain for the foreseeable future. But what if some other women returned, determined to make a true name for themselves in this new era of women's wrestling. We see men return all the time to try and regain the WWE Championship, so now that we have a "Revolution" of sorts, can't even more women come back? Why not? Lets take a look at 15 former WWE Divas we'd like to see return to compete for the newly instated Women's title.
As always feel free to let us know your opinion in the comments below.
15 Trish Stratus
14 Gail Kim
12 Molly Holly
8 Beth Phoenix
Beth Phoenix decided to retire just a few short years ago, and it's a shame she went just before a "revolution" in the division. Beth Phoenix accomplished a lot throughout her career, but never got to showcase her talents as well as she could have, due to the division being treated as bathroom-break fodder throughout most of her career. It's a shame because we know she's just as good if not better than the current crop of women who have emerged from NXT.
6 Torrie Wilson
5 Mickie James
1 AJ Lee
AJ Lee is our number one pick due to her still being so fresh in the minds of the WWE Universe. Sadly, AJ decided to leave just before the Divas Revolution was in full force. We all know AJ wanted nothing but equality for the women of wrestling, and now that it's finally happening, it's sad to see AJ not able to be part of it. Yes, CM Punk is most likely the reason for her departure but seeing how young she still is, we can still see AJ making a return one day. Hey, maybe CM Punk can tag along. We can hope, can't we?
