This week, we’re asking this: With Brock Lesnar’s shocking return, we want to know: which former Diva would you bring back to the WWE, and how would you book her return? 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!
Batting for Team DD this week, it’s Melanie giving us her personal opinion on this week’s topic:
Melanie: I could very easily respond with Trish Stratus or Lita, but I’m not going to do that. Instead, the former Diva that I’d pick to return may surprise you: Tiffany. Yes, she of Skirt Tiffany fame! At the time of her suspension and release in 2010, Tiffany was getting really good in the ring and delivering great efforts against Michelle McCool. Her ability to look strong (remember the atomic drop?) and beautiful in the ring at the same time was something we rarely see unless a Diva has come from an independent wrestling background. She also had a good look and I think, like Kelly, Trish, Torrie etc. before her, she could play the babyface blonde really well if given the opportunity.
With so many heel Divas on the main roster right now — Beth, Eve and the Bellas — perhaps Tiffany can return to back up her former pal, Kelly. I’d then put her into a similar underdog storyline with Beth for the Divas Title. Working with a veteran can only help her improve and she could even surprise fans with what she can do, too.
Tiffany’s ring time was cut short despite ever-improving, and it’d be cool to see her get another chance.
|@BeliEvePL | I’d love to see Victoria back. You know, she was really underrated in her last days in WWE but now, she would be top WWE Diva. First, she should leave TNA of course. How i’d like to see her return? When Eve wins Divas Title (at Summerslam for example) Victoria’s theme song starts playing and then she attacks Eve with Widow’s Peak and then she hits Top Rope Moonsault. I’d love to see storyline between Eve and Victoria!|
|Josue Guzman | Michelle McCool. Layla is expected to make a return to the ring soon and I for one want to see more of the short lived feud between these former best friends! Rumors are that when Layla does return, she will team up with Zack Ryder to take on Eve Torres and another Superstar. Have the two teams face off at Extreme Rules (coincidentally, the last time we saw Michelle).
While the men are outside fighting, the distracted referee is ordering them back in to the ring. Inside the ring, the women are legal and Layla seems to have the upper hand, even hitting Eve with the Layout, when all of the sudden a returning Michelle McCool attacks Layla and costs her the match. Eve later explains that due to her involvement at Wrestlemania, that led Team Johnny to victory against Team Teddy, a grateful John Laurinaitis had rewarded Eve with any favor. Eve decided to use that favor to bring back Michelle, who has some unfinished business to take care of.
|Michael Kelly | Jillian. Have her come back & attack Beth Phoenix & Kelly, take the mic & cut a promo on how she was under looked by everyone in WWE from management to the fans & that she’s perfected her craft, she wants to prove she’s no joke & that she wants the Divas Title BACK! Don’t make her a face or a heel, have her as a tweener & take out Divas left, right & centre. I think she could play an awesome psycho, dominant heel.|
|Robert D. Martinez | I’d choose either Lita or Molly Holly. If Lita returned I would book her to come out and attack Beth after Beth has a match and goes on the mic and says “There is not a single past Diva that could ever beat me. I am unstoppable and will remain Divas Champ forever.” And then Lita comes out and returns. For Molly I would have her as a face so I’d love to see her wrestle Natalya, Beth or even Kharma.|
|@stephenharland | Mickie James, Daniel Bryan’s new manager. They’ve both been disrespected in the past and now they’re going to be the new power couple.|
|Trevor Stewart | Madusa. Have her come back to bring the wrestling back in the division by taking out Divas one by one who aren’t strong and worthy enough in her eyes. I like that other person’s idea of an anti Diva group. Have Madusa lead with Kharma as an enforcer and a newbie like Sara Del Rey.|
