- Total Divas
Here’s a random but interesting note on the Divas division versus the Knockouts division, courtesy of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:
The big difference between the women’s matches in TNA and WWE is as much agenting as anything. In TNA, they usually would use the top agent they had to, move-for-move, structure the women’s matches. In WWE, the women are out there largely doing it themselves. That explains why Gail Kim looked so great in TNA and in WWE, she’s nowhere close to that level.
Coincidentally, Scott D’Amore who has been the Knockouts agent for the past several months once again left the company this week, reports PWInsider. D’Amore initially led the Knockouts division when it launched and is behind those epic Kong-Kim matches. D’Amore left in 2008 but returned to the post in the summer of last year.
Meanwhile, it is true that the Divas put their own matches together; a couple of months ago a source put it to me that former Women’s and Divas Champ Melina, is in particular one of the best at putting matches together.
