“Your Two Cents” is our 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: Even though rumors of FCW’s demise have been debunked, we want to know: If you could “save” one FCW Diva and bring her to the main roster, who would it be? 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 Cryssi giving us her personal opinion on this week’s topic:
Cryssi: It’s definitely a no-brainer as to which FCW I would save and that is none other than Paige. Say what you will about the woman formally known as Britani Knight, but she’s already main roster ready in my opinion. She has character, charisma, and amazing wrestling skills. And she also something else important on her side and that’s her youth. Paige has the potential to be the next biggest thing when it comes to the Divas (even if she coins herself the anti-Diva) and throwing her in REAL wrestling matches against Beth, Natalya, Eve, and a returning Kharma have mouth-watering potential. I also believe she’s the type of wrestler that, much like Beth, could work any girl and have a great match. I would love to see her against Kelly, The Bellas, Alicia, AJ, Kaitlyn…. the list goes on and on. As if that wasn’t reason enough to save Paige, she could work as a manager/valet. I’d love to see her brought up with Seth Rollins and perhaps even work with CM Punk. She could go with anyone. In my opinion no other FCW girl has more stock than Paige. Those of us who have seen her work in SHIMMER know this.
Your Two Cents
Charlie Flickinger | Hmmm. This is a tough one. I want to say Sofia Cortez, but for some reason I don’t think she would fit too well in the main roster, so I’m gonna go with the Divas Champ: Raquel Diaz. I think she would be great on the main rooster. Bring her in as Vickie Guerrero‘s daughter and BOOM she’s a super heel. And then have Vickie lead her to the butterfly belt. The storyline practically writes itself.
@FearlessRiOT | This question is an immediate no-brainer: I would save the wrestler formerly known as Britani Knight, Paige. I’ve been following Paige’s work ever since early 2011 and I’ve been impressed with everything she’s done. She can wrestle, she has charisma, and she can be both serious and funny, which helps. The fact that she’s young and incredibly stunning in the looks department also helps matters. She’s also a better wrestler than most Divas, but I won’t name any names. Paige/Britani is an awesome talent and the sooner she’s on the WWE roster, the better.
Josue Guzman | My choice would have to be Sofia Cortez. She was great on Tough Enough and has more in ring experience than most of the Divas that are currently on the main roster anyway.
Parh Pamaha | Sofia Cortez aka Ivelisse..because she isn’t the skinny model type with zero apetite, she’s actually way hotter than most of em! She kicks ass and has the badass ness to her that most girls in the roster don’t have. She’s real baby! And I like that!
@pikatrick | Caylee Turner. Won me over on T.E. and she’s rapidly becoming WWE’s super diva. She’s got the skill, looks, and personality.
Prescott Greatness | Shaul Guerrero (not gonna acknowledge the abominable name-change of an incredible legacy wrestling name). Agreed w/ Charlie pretty much. Also, no to Naomi because her upstaging and overselling is part of what hurt the funny/camp factor of Brodus Clay. the valets/managers are supposed to enhance talent, not make it their own show even in the middle of the ring. Brodus often looked like just a spectator to the vamping, out-of-sync dancing of his own girls. Somebody call their mommas, they don’t have long. Even Melina (probably the most upstaging female valet ever that got over) would take all that overness and transfer it to MNM by rubbing on them, gesturing to them while kneeling and staring. thats called good business. even w/ that, MNMs run was cut too short because Melina’s overness basically dwarfed the two workers & she branched out.
And now we turn it over to you…
