“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: Bull Nakano’s retirement earlier this week has us wondering: Of those who have left women’s wrestling, who do you miss the most? 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 Bobby giving us her personal opinion on this week’s topic:
Bobby | I’d have to say the woman I miss most in wrestling would have to be Nidia. She was the first diva I connected with, as random as it sounds, but the segments between she and Jamie Noble are still to this day some of the most hilarious things I have ever seen. She was a good wrestler who only seemed to improve, and I never forget how excited I was the night she won that Contract on a Pole match…only to lose the title shot three seconds later. I always wanted her to come back, but I think she has a family now and lives in Texas, so I just pray she ends up doing a convention in Florida one day so I can meet her!
Your Two Cents
|Josue Guzman | One of the first woman I’ve seen wrestle: Madusa. I think she is one of those people in wrestling, who when you hear her name, you KNOW who she is. Whether it be from her incredible athleticism, multiple championships, International fame, controversial moments or legendary feud with Bull Nakano, there is no doubt she has made an impact in women’s wrestling. Would love to see her in the ring one more time!|
|Michael Kelly | Ivory. She was the mould for the anti-diva, she could talk and in my opinion was one of the best females on the mic ever, she could fight in any type of match & still look good & she shown skill over beauty which makes her iconic.|
|Mondarious Brantley | Michelle McCool. WWE put a lot of work into getting her over with the fans be it as a heel or face. She really gave it her all and made history for herself. Not only that, but she also gave a rub to other Divas like Layla and Alicia Fox.|
|@MxdBoysDoItBest | Out of all the women that don’t wrestle anymore, I definitely miss Molly Holly. Molly Holly was one of the most talented divas in the WWE. She was one of my favorite heels because she played the character well. Her in-ring style stood out from all the other divas because she was a great technical wrestler. Her character stood out as well because she played the “virgin” woman who didn’t exploit her body or show any skin, and I feel her character helped the fans lover her and hate her. Molly could’ve became something big if she had stayed around and if the WWE hadn’t put her on the backburner. She only held the Women’s Championship twice, and she deserved to hold it more times than that. Hopefully one day she’ll come back. Boy, do I like the sound of a Molly vs. Beth Phoenix feud!|
|Nick Gross | Lita. She’s the reason I started watching wrestling again. She’s the one women’s wrestler that as a guy, I could see myself talking to & hanging out with. She had an approachable quality to her that everyone else didn’t have. And the more I learned about her, the more I liked her. She likes the same music as me and is funny & quirky in real life. And I liked that. It’s a shame that the fans caused her to retire early (and her injuries started piling up), she was one in a billion and I personally think that Vince OWES it to her to put her in the Hall of Fame this year. She’s more than earned it. He also owes her a VERY pubic apology for how she was treated at the end of her career.|
|PortuguesePoison P-Cat Negro | Luna Vachon, god bless her soul, I started watching her in the 90′s when I was 3 or 4 and ever since fell in love with women’s wrestling. I really wished she had a run with TNA before she died, it’s a shame she never was Women’s Champion.|
|@sofbomb Lacey. Unlike wrestlers like Trish and Lita, I don’t feel we ever got to see all there is to see from Lacey. I would have loved to see her on TV, or even as a part of the fantastic and always growing North American independent women’s wrestling scene. It would have been great to see her work with some of the newer SHIMMER girls like Jessie McKay and Joshis like Ayumi Kurihara. Imagine potential interactions between her and the Canadian Ninjas or the Knight Dynasty?! And if the news about ROH developing a women’s division comes to fruition, her being a part of it would have been absolutely incredible. Who better to represent the Women of Honor than one of the originals? It’s a shame she left wrestling so early, but I’m happy that she was able to get out of it 100% on her terms.|
