Your Two Cents: A Third Diva of Doom

“Your Two Cents” is the new interactive feature where we gauge the opinions of our Twitter and Facebook followers on different discussions in women’s wrestling.

This week, we’re asking this: With Alicia Fox joining Eve Torres & Kelly Kelly, who do you think should help Beth Phoenix and Natalya even the odds? We’ve read your responses on our social media pages and picked some of the best submissions to highlight here on the website. As always, you can join the debate by leaving your comments!

Our Two Cents

Batting for Team DD this week, it’s Melanie giving us her personal opinion on this week’s topic:

Melanie | This is more of a “dream pick” than a logical one for present day. I think Victoria, now known as Tara in TNA, would be the perfect third for Natalya and Beth. Like Beth and Natalya, Victoria was a tough-as-nails, respected and decorated champion who had faced some of the top Divas in the company. However, as her career began to slow down in WWE, she was often used to put over “model-types” like Torrie Wilson and younger, newer Divas such as Kelly Kelly and the Bella Twins. With that, she’d certainly have some argument to join the Divas of Doom, feeling sick and tired of being in the background, aligning herself with Beth & Nattie in order to rid the division of these “perky princesses” and “Barbie dolls”.

Your Two Cents

@EricLeeBailey | I liked Regal’s suggestion on NXT a couple of weeks back: Kaitlyn. She has the right look, and it would move her up the ladder. If they want 4 on 4, she could bring AJ along, setting up a storyline reason to debut Naomi (Kelly bringing her protege to even things back up). As perfect as Kelly vs AJ, the Anti-Kelly, would be, Model vs Wrestler, Popular Girl vs Nerd, both the same age, they won’t do it. Too great a risk of splitting audience loyalties. Personally, I think a split audience would make for more compelling television, but they don’t want anyone not supporting Kelly at all times.
@GregLucM | Seems to me that Naomi would make a storyline logical choice (I know, WWE Diva management and story logic don’t mix, but bear with me.) Bringing in Naomi as a surprise while reminding people of the NXT 3 continuity with Kelly being her “Pro,” seemingly to help Kelly and Eve. Then, bam, heel turn with her talking about how she deserved to win NXT3 after suffering through it’s horible-ness, and also talking about how she resented being paired with the “model” Kelly. Seems fair, yes? The one wrinkle is that we’d probably get better matches with Naomi vs. Beth/Natty than vs. Kelly/Eve.
Luc Tempest | Some talk about “in a perfect world”, and in mine they would have Sara Del Rey come out and cut her promo about being a tough athlete, not wanting to be pretty and wear make up, but to have wrestling respected as a sport. And then beat everyone up. Of course that would never happen in sports entertainment.
@Miss_Diesel | I would love to see the likes of Tamina joining the Divas of Doom, if not her have them call up Raquel Diaz. She’s a great combination of talent and beauty a total draw into FCW every week when it comes to the Divas they have on that roster. She is more than ready to take on a manager/wrestler role with the ladies. It’d also be great to see the daughter of Eddie and Vickie get the spotlight.
@RealAlexxAlexx | I’d have to say Tamina is the obvious choice to join the Divas of Doom. She’s so unique, but beautiful and of course she’s powerful. She’s still relatively new and working with Beth and Nattie can only make her even better. She could be some kind of body guard or enforcer, not that the DOD need it but I can see her excelling well in that position. She’s definitely a strong, dominating presence and I think working with the DOD would show people that and it would make her a more credible opponent.
William Smith | It would be awesome to see an old school woman like Jazz or Alundra Blayze/Madusa (especially after the Twitter “drama” w/ Eve). Couled be a great opportunity for newer talent like Tamina, Kaitlyn or a debuting Naomi!

And now we turn it over to you…
