Eve Torres Comments on Possible Divas Season of NXT

Speaking to SLAM Wrestling, former Divas Champion Eve Torres passed along some interesting comments on NXT. She says:

“When they told all of us about the idea of NXT, for the Divas that was our first question — will there be women on the show?” she says. “[There’s] a lot of value that could add because we’re always pushing for more with the Divas and bring the Divas to the next level. People don’t really get to know as much as the other superstars because of the amount of time you see us on TV. So having something show what it means to be a Diva… I think that’s what NXT is about — what it means to be a superstar — and I think a female version would be awesome because it could help communicate that to the world.”

With Lay-Cool as mentors on this season of NXT, I should hope that perhaps next season we may get that boundary pushed a little more with a female rookie or three.

    it wouldn’t be a good idea to sort-of debut all the FCW divas right away on one show.

  • Kaledrina

    with aj lee supposed to be debuting soon, tamina already on raw, serena on smackdown and jamie on nxt.. there’s only like three divas on fcw they could use. i’d rather they slowly call the women up from fcw as they’ve done the past however long rather than gutting fcw of female talent.

    i’d like for it to happen, it likely never will, but right now with a roster of three? no chance.

  • imj1995

    Quick question were Cherry Bomb and Sue Yong signed?

  • xmelissaa

    Divas NXT, please. It’ll be a great way to introduce people to the upcoming divas.

  • ozzyv

    AJ Lee aka the Pocket Rocket, is set to debut very soon so I think the NXT Ship has sailed for her..but I don’t mind that for a sec. I want to see her on Smackdown competing for the Womens Title. I see big things for her. And truth be told, id love to see her against Gail Kim in an interpromotional battle! That match would be dynamite! Forget NXT, just bring her in already!

  • LaceyVonErichFan

    Naomi , Aksana , Liviana are the only FCW divas that are really known as wrestlers not including the newly signed divas like christina and the mystery diva. Maybe before NXT season 3 FCW will have already a few divas that have been making progress and just have 4 divas and 4 superstars be in NXT 3 and since FCW are running low on there superstars it would be a great idea to add a few divas.

  • Kaledrina

    “and just have 4 divas and 4 superstars be in NXT 3 and since FCW are running low on there superstars it would be a great idea to add a few divas.”

    i think that idea would work best. wwe backed out on their all-diva one-off ecw show they advertised last year, so a mixed roster would be the best shot the fcw divas would have of being on nxt. i really don’t see a full female nxt roster ever happening – i’d love to be proven wrong, though, vince ;)

  • Skylar

    love the divas nxt thing but i think wwe should make the divas known the divas right know are like fading away if they do the nxt thing know i think there will be like 30 people and then its gonna be a complete fail and its gonna make the divas look bad i may be wrong but it could happen.

    i know this will never happen but i would so watch the show if trish lita and victoria came back as pro’s to naomi,livanna, and whoever else they got on the roster……that would be so fun to see the three of them together in wwe…..

    While I applaud Eve for speaking of more ways the divas could get involved with stuff. I have a problem with the current crop of divas “mentoring” anyone. It would be just like the Miz and Bryan Danielson, everyone and their mother would be like “this person has more experience than you.”

    I mean what is Eve going to teach an up and comer right now? How to bore the crowd? How to hit lots of flashy moves but after six months of trying finally start hitting your fundamentals? (Not to pick on Eve… I wouldn’t want to see what the Bellas, Alicia, Layla or even Maryse [whose success turns on her being her] could teach someone at this stage). While I know the pros don’t actually do much, it looks better when the pros can actually hit clotheslines properly before they go and mentor people.

    Too bad they didn’t think of NXT earlier, the Trish/Lita/Jazz/Victoria/Gail/Molly era would have been a great one do to a divas NXT.

    i would like to see a Mixed Season of NXT.. not all Divas, & it would be nice to see a Male Pro for a Female Rookie.. not all Diva Pros

  • Mel

    To daemonicwanderer317 – You know they don’t actually train them. I mean look at laycool with kaval neither Layla or Michelle can teach the guy anything he doesn’t alkready know.

  • daemonicwanderer317

    @Mel, I know they don’t actually train them, but I think having most of the current crop of divas get placed in a mentoring capacity would just not be believable. You would end up with a bunch of “rookies” who probably know just as much if not more than the “pros” and all the fans would know that. Many of the divas would be in the same situation the Miz was in last season.

    Plus, do you really want to add more women to a roster that has trouble giving all of its current members decent storylines and (more importantly) characters? One of the critiques of the divas is that they end up seeming very similar. Eve, Kelly (until recently), Tiffany, and Gail are pretty much interchangeable as the smily, happy face. In fact the only two non-tag team attached faces (okay that only covers Natalya) that routinely stand out are both injured: Melina and Beth.

    My fear is that as the current roster is not taken care of, the divas in NXT would end up like the diva search girls–people that we really don’t care about.

  • Mel

    I highly doubt they will ever have an alll divas season of NXT okay, BUT I do think more divas are going to be on the show in the future. Which I have no problem with if it helps give the division more exposure then do it. I think thats what Eve was getting at.

    LOL @ Eve, Maryse, Alicia and Kelly as Pros!!!

    Replace them with Jillian, Natalya, Beth and Gail then you have something.
