  • So happy for Cameron, and Leticia as well. Loved her on Lucha Libre USA.

    Can’t wait for Naomi’s TV return.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    I’m so happy for Cameron. Honestly I really wanted her to be something big in WWE. But I’m happy she’s found something new. Plus I love her personality so it’s cool that she’s on a show where she can show it.

  • A One of a Kind Collectible

    I am really looking forward to AJ’s book, her story seems so engaging and so real, I don’t know why WWE didn’t incorporate it more, into her character.

    As for Emmalina… Bye, WWE have literally made me bored of Emma, I was super excited for her return, but they’ve killed it, they’ve killed all momentum before she even returned

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      Aj’s character was that of a crazy chick it didn’t really provide a lot of room for dwelling on her unfortunate times growing up. If shit hadn’t hit the fan so abruptly,as AJ was slowly getting out of the crazy persona, I am sure it would’ve been incorporated in her babyface promos.
      They sort of sold the story prior to her fully going nuts too.

    • Pavement Rhodes

      “her story seems so engaging and so real”, well, it sure “seems” because I’m sure their will be tons of truth distortion in it

      • Divalicious

        she bothers you so much for someone who claims they don’t care about her

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Ariane imo was never meant for wrestling. She obviously is suited for TV and the show portion, she just picked the wrong field initially. But it wasn’t a complete mistake as I am sure WWE opened doors for her.

    • Mark

      I disagree. Her mic skills and acting were strong. And she was decent in the ring, way better than a lot of you people give her credit for. If Torrie Wilson, Eve Torres, Candice Michelle and others you guys love were suited for wrestling then so was Ariane. She was an OK worker, great seller and became pretty solid in NXT when working with awesome trainers. Sky was the limit for her and who knows how good she would have gotten if she didn’t get released.

      • Gabriella Panajotova

        She never did it for me in any way. I really saw nothing she could bring to the table in the current women’s division. The standard of performance is set too high right now.

        • Mark

          Different strokes for different folks, I guess. But in my opinion there was a place for Cameron on NXT.

      • #ILoveMelina

        You’re so right. I feel so bad that people still undermine her as a competitor. Her triple threat with Nattie and Alicia felt so fresh. Their little situation on Smackdown was out of the blue but awesome. I wish they would have gave her a chance cause her passion for it showed a lot on her way out.

        • Mark

          Yep. They fucked Cameron over big time, management and the fans too. The fans especially never gave her a chance over some stupid Tough Enough stint and her making a bad choice by trying to pin Naomi in the wrong position. She was very believable in the ring. She wrestled with aggression and really blossomed as a heel. And was a natural on the mic. Such a shame!

      • BLKLTR05

        If you are setting the bar at Torrie Wilson, who herself said that she wasn’t that great a wrestler, then yes, Ariane was decent in the ring. I don’t necessarily disagree with you though. A lot of what goes on in the ring is acting and as far as that goes, we all know she did great, BUT she would have never been able to hang with this new crop of girls.

        • Mark

          I think she could have if she stayed in NXT and got more training. She was a very quick learner and had what it took to get to an amazing level.

          • BLKLTR05

            I think the problem with Ariane was that she was brought up to the main roster too quickly as a funkadactyl. She didn’t train nearly enough back then and when she finally decided to go back to NXT, it was too little too late. And then her mouth got her in trouble and fired.

  • Alice In La La Land

    Cameron looks better since she left WWE.

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      Everyone does. Kaitlyn and AJ too. I look at them now and they look 5 years younger. The travelling schedule wrestlers have is crazy, the bodies are under immense stress 24/7…I don’t know how they do it.

      • Alice In La La Land

        I agree. I think when they leave and get the much needed rest, they look so much better.

      • Pavement Rhodes

        AJ almost never posts pictures and most are filtered anyway. But she found the fountain of youth since she looks no older than 11

        • Divalicious

          screaming your obsessed sad self is back at it again it’s 2017 get a life already

          • Pavement Rhodes

            I have a life, I know what year it is. Doesn’t appear you have one tho if your only replies on here are untrue personal attacks toward me. May want to read the commenting policy on this site: “Abuse and spam will not be tolerated and will result in bans.” That’s all your comments are, abuse.

          • Divalicious

            awe are you gonna cry because I keep calling your sad obsessed self out? well all your comments are spam pretty much as I told you if you put your account off private we’ll find 90% of your posts on here are AJ Lee hate comments if that’s you’re life than saying it’s sad is just a fact not abuse

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Also, if someone has listened to Trish’s podcast could they tell me what she said about the term “divas”? I just don’t wanna go through yet another wrestling podcast :D Thanks

  • howie_ruhl

    Silly me. I didn’t even recognize the girl in the photo. I though “oh hey, Diva Dirt finally got correspondents to break down weekly wrestling news.”

      Cold. :D

    • Summer_Slay#BellasAreOverParty

      Ariane is actually one of few people that were able to find a career after WWE that has nothing to do with wrestling. So good for her.
      Cause when you hit your 40s WWE will give you the we wish you the best in your future endevours and you will be stuck working on the indies for nickles and dimes.

    • thenotorious1

      Lmfaoooooooooooooooo same.

  • Pavement Rhodes

    “Who is AJ Brooks?” – most casual fans

    • Divalicious

      “we need you to move out of the basement” – your parents

      • Pavement Rhodes

        I don’t live with my parents nor in a basement, stupid. At least I’m being on topic with my posts and not resorting to personal untrue attacks.

  • glassjaw

    I kind of wonder, or should I say dread, if Linda McMahon’s affiliation with President Trump (God that hurt my teeth writing that title) will have an influence on WWE, culturally at least.

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      I doubt.

  • MK126

    After the rumble? She better win the damn title at this rate cause shes been “changing” for damn near months and all we get are pictures of her on the beach ???

  • OJ Von Erich

    YAASSS BOO get those paychecks! ???

    Hahaha sorry, I can’t help but use her tone when talking about Ariane, gotta love her.

    Cameron was on some MTV dating show called Next ages ago. Tried finding the episode on YouTube but haven’t

  • willh

  • Alex

    A Bit Off-Topic:

    Maybe it was recorded for the weekly Wednesday WOH youtube match segments but according to the following ROH tv taping rundown episode #3 begins with a women’s tag team bout between the duo of Kelly Klein & Kennadi Brink and the pair of Faye Jackson & Sumie Sakai.

    • Radical

      I believe that was a dark match.

  • Victoria&Melina19

    Didn’t even realise Ariane looks different…not a bad thing, she looks good. I actually thought this is a weekly video on women’s wrestling or something lol

  • Jesus’s brother

    Naomi TV return will be a loss to Mickie James!
    Alexa Bliss vs. Becky Lynch vs. Mickie James at Wrestlemania book it Vince!! lol

  • Finally Naomi is returning to the ring, she need’s that Womens Championship so bad, also EMMAlina’s debut isn’t relevant anymore.
