Who is the Greatest Raw Diva Ever?: Round 2 – Vote Now

It’s hard to believe that we are coming up to 1000 episodes of Raw. On July 23rd, WWE celebrates its milestone 1,000th episode on USA Network and to celebrate, over the next month we’re going to be asking you to crown the Greatest Raw Diva Ever!

The Diva Dirt team has compiled a list of 32 women who we feel have played a memorable role in at least one of the last 900-something episodes of the flagship Monday night show, and we’re asking you to whittle the list down to just one woman.

As we count down to July 23rd, each week we will be cutting the list in half; next week we reveal the top 16, then the top 8, 4, 2 and finally, the winner. The Greatest Raw Diva Ever will be announced on Monday, July 23rd exclusively here at Diva Dirt!

You can help support your favorite Diva on the list by plugging this page on your Facebook and Twitter pages. Be sure to use the hashtag #GreatestRawDivaEver on Twitter!


ROUND 1 RESULTS: We had a huge, overwhelming response to Round 1, with thousands of votes, as well as hundreds of tweets and comments. Thank you for your support! Unfortunately, for 16 women, they are now out of the running to be named the Greatest Raw Diva Ever. Those names include Bertha Faye, Debra, Christy Hemme, Bull Nakano, Mae Young, Alundra Blayze, Jazz, Terri Runnels, Luna, Lilian Garcia, Jacqueline, Ivory, Sunny, Molly Holly, Stacy Keibler and Ashley Massaro.

It’s now time to vote for Round 2 of the tournament! In one week, the selection will be cut in half again, with only the 8 women with the most votes advancing to the next round. Vote wisely!

 

Stay tuned for the Round 2 results and Round 3 voting next week.

    me personally, Sable, and Trish STratus, are the greatest diva of all time, so i voted for them, one the Orginal diva and one Diva of the Decade, both true legends

  • lelloo7

    Voted Kelly Kelly for the second time… I know you’ll be hating… Just don’t hate on my comment..

  • AfroJack

    IVORY!!!!! :(((

    • Poison Ivory

      I KNOW RIGHT D:

      • lucky1now

        I can’t believe she’s gone

        • Poison Ivory

          Well I’m not surprised though. This’s just to vote for your favourite Diva lol.

  • Jhonmarco

    Voting for Stratus once again.

  • misschrissi7

    LITA all the way. Followed very closely by Trish

    • ILoveKpop

      I agree Lita was the best diva ever!!! she wasn’t an eyecandy she was sooo cool and brave!

  • Rhawk

    Gave my vote to Stephanie this time, one of my fav women of all time in the E. Shame that people like Kelly, Eve & The Bellas got through when those like Luna, Ivory, Blayze and Mae didn’t make it. Shows just how modern and bad the Divas fans are these days…

    • lelloo7

      You don’t have the right to call the diva fans bad.. you voted for ur fav. was she the best diva? I don’t think so !!
      So plz be respectful..

      • http://xlittlemissobsessive.tumblr.com/ KellyKellyAJFan

        It’s not “shame” its people’s opinion. Everyone has the right to vote for whoever THEY think is/was the best raw diva.

      • Rhawk

        I kind of do have the right, theres something in the world called ‘freedom of speech?’. Just like you said whoever I personally choose as my favourite is NOT be the best. Maybe I should say you dont have the right to disrespect my opinion. But I wont, because we all have opinions and I’m sticking by mine when I say fans sometimes can be so absent minded.
        I find it irritating that most people these days vote for the most recent women to appear on television, the freshest things in their minds, when women in the past clearly made more impact that those voted to stay in.

        • http://xlittlemissobsessive.tumblr.com/ KellyKellyAJFan

          …Um? I dont think you got what I meant at all….Ok then.

    • theprincedann

      Stephanie Rules.

  • Zane

    GO BETH!

  • AdrianRay

    The Bella’s? What the hell have they done on Raw? Just wondering! Does winning their titles on Raw count?

    • lelloo7

      apparently yes.. I was wondering the same thing.. but they competed for a long time.. i am surprised cz people voted for themm… Go BellaArmy

      • BellaBaby

        I voted for them both times! BELLA ARMY is the biggest army. Haters gonna hate :-p

        • AfroJack

          the Russian army is actually bigger but you know..

    • lucky1now

      I guess all those times them having segments with the raw host of the week gets them by

      • AdrianRay

        They sure did get PLENTY of screen time thanks to those wonderful guest hosts! I assume that pretty much cements them in WWE history! Years from now when the “Awful Guest Host” topic comes up someone will mention the hot twins. #BellaArmy #ArmCandy #RampWalking #OnBothArms

        #KharmaBait ….one day…one day…

        • Essex Boy

          #Karmabait LOL!!!!! Love it!

  • ConnorAllan

    Victoria all the way! Then Chyna then Maryse

    Victoria/ Tara is just downright the most gifted and technically sound woman in cable/national wrestling

    Chyna changed the business for women so much, here’s hoping she fights her demons and makes an amazing comeback to wrestling

    Maryse was one of the best heels ever, she may not have been the best in ring but she knew exactly how to get heat and just rile the crowd up

    That’s my reasons! :)

  • B1G_FaN

    Just the fact that the Bella Twins are on this list over some others not remaining just shows that this poll is a crock. People too young to know who Ivory, Molly, etc. are should not have a say in this poll. Sad. So, so sad.

    We all know Trish will win this poll. Seems like a waste of time. Having said that, I voted for Beth Phoenix in round 2 since Ivory is no longer an option.

    • lelloo7

      I agree with you with this and disagree… They are free to vote to whoever they want.. they’re voting for their fav. not the best… so are u… I mean if u wanna talk about the best, u’d be talking about lita, victoriam trish and others not beth
      And i agree with u about the fact that Trish is winning this thing ..
      I mean WWE doesn’t seem to care about any other diva like they cared and still care about trish… she’s great but there are other deserving women to be on ur shows… like Lita, ofc victoria , jazz and others…

      • Rhawk

        Actually they are voting for ‘the Greatest Raw Diva Ever’, not their favourite, and the last I checked ‘Greatest’ is a closer meaning to ‘Best’ than ‘Favourite’. So you know, just throwing that out there… ;-)

  • bjorn448

    For me, it is Mickie James.

    • shamrock123

      Thats right Mickie James woo!! She is and always will be the best diva no matter who emerges. she made history and is a fan favorite, with her heel turn coming she looks to make history yet again!!!

  • WweLitafan4ever

    Voted for Lita obviously.
    Easiest poll ever

  • litafan2000

    I voted Lita! But it will most likely come down to lita and Trish like usually it does.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    trish hands down

  • WinterAngel94

    Voted for my girl Candice Michelle again :))

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    ahhh i feel so bad that Sunny got elimanted, the self proclaimed Original Diva, :( poor thing LOL’ i love it, eliminated the first round hahahhahaha

    • perceval

      If it was something like a Top Ten list, Sunny would be on pretty much everyone’s if they were being objective. But, she’ll lost in a poll to Sable, straight up, every time. While Sunny was the prototype for Sable, Sable was bigger.

      • cutymania

        EVERRRYTIME hahaha

  • WweLitafan4ever

    Im surprised Sunny is not on the list anymore.
    I thought she’d be in the top 5 or something.

  • shamrock123

    Mickie James will always be raws best diva she made history by becoming the first female wrestler to hold all the singles womens titles in wwe and tna. and she had the most memorable feud with trish stratus in 2006, mickie will always be the best diva.

  • MattyM

    Torrie Wilson all the way but we all know Trish is gonna win so why even continue the poll

  • GailKim95

    I voted Trish. This isn’t about the best wrestler. It’s about the greatest diva and without a doubt that would be Trish. Although I am a little concerned that Kelly and the Bellas made it over Jazz, Molly and Ivory. Also women like Luna and Jacqueline are never truely given credit even though they were amazing

  • BellaBaby

    I’m surprised Stacy got eliminated so early and how is eve and beth still there?

    • xJonFer12494x

      I agree, Stacy although not a performer like Lita, Victoria, jazz, and not an inbetweener who was super pushed like Trish, was still ever popular in her time with WWE especially during the “golden era” for the divas, and has had her fair share of memorable moments as the ultimate eye-candy of the time ( for raw that is, torrie was smackdowns). But oh well, most people on here love to hate the “models” simply because they were models.

  • theprincedann

    I voted Chyna.

    Because she is Chyna.
    Enough said.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/dsanchez96?feature=mhum sanchezdiego96

    Sticking with the person who had control of Raw and had the most power over the WWE than any other diva. Stephanie McMahon!

  • http://ashmultimedia.wordpress.com melon2617

    I voted Trish again as she was simply involved in more major Raw moments than the other Divas.

    • vincent

      simply?

      she was?

      • http://ashmultimedia.wordpress.com melon2617

        Yes, she was. She had more classic promos that people remember, more storylines that people remember, matches, including THE most controversial Raw moment in the history of the WWE, that is still brought up today, over 12 years later.

        As far as Raw moments/storylines/promos, Trish had:

        - Her “Table” promos to taunt Bubba Ray Dudley
        - Lita/Rock vs Triple H/Stephanie
        - The Stable attack on Stephanie
        - The sewage incident with Stephanie
        - “Bark like a dog”
        - Trish’s Women’s title win in the table match on Raw
        - Trish wins the hardcore title
        - Trish & Jeff
        - The Rock saves Trish from the KMA club
        - “You can’t get no Stratusfaction”
        - Trish rips on the Diva Search contestants
        - Trish vs Lita main event on Raw
        - Trish gets chokeslammed above Kane’s head
        - “Your head is so hard it broke my darn shoe”
        - Trish’s “date” with Big Viscera
        - Trish’s return to stop Vince’s Devils
        - Trish meets her “biggest fan”
        - Trish gets kissed by Mickie
        - Trish gets surprised by Mickie in the shower
        - Trickie surprises Mickie
        - Trish introduces Beth Phoenix
        - Trish’s retirement address
        - Trish guest hosts Raw

        That’s not including her matches, various storyline plot points, etc. Trish made a huge impact on Raw and IMO she had more Raw moments or promos than anyone. Stephanie is a close second.

        • perceval

          Trish’s promos were the greatest in Raw Diva history, “The walking kiss of death” topping a long list of classic Trish promos. She made the feud with Christy entertaining ENTIRELY on the strength of her promos.

          Plus, she worked the entire Lita & Christy feuds with a herniated disc, during which she also lost a knuckle, suffered a broken nose, almost had her upper lip ripped completely off (had it stitched back together), and had half her face bruised, and still worked almost every show.

          And what do people remember most about the Lita-Kane wedding? Trish. “You just have to open your heart, just like you opened your legs.” She just stepped into that storyline and stole it out from under Kane & Matt, making it all about her and Lita (rescuing Lita from a crappy angle in the process).

          I’d add to your list the main event of Trish & Rock vs Vince & Angle that ended the Kiss My Ass Club angle, saw Trish bloody Vince up, & concluded their feud that had been running since Wrestlemania.

        • vincent

          I would hardly call more than half of that list memorable RAW moments. I think what truly sets a memorable RAW moment aside from just a memorable DIVA moment, is the lasting impression it has on the overall audience, not just diva fans.

          I’d go as far as saying your list here would only ring bells in the back of the heads of diehard Trish Stratus fans. I’ve been watching WWE since before the Trish/Lita era…and a lot of your listed “moments” were forgettable to me…and I’m a fan.

        • Roman

          @vincent i think from my personal opinion of you going back and forth you simply don’t like Trish it is very true that she had a hell or a lot of promos and for anyone who says she was overly pushed and all of that bull crap you just wish it was a diva that you liked more because obviously she was doing something damn good to get the pushes she was getting. and i am a Trish fan just as much as i am a jazz, Victoria, and Lita fan but Trish had more memorable moments in the wwf/wwe than all of them.

        • vincent

          @ROMAN

          You’re “reply” is blowing things way out of proportion. I never said she was “overly pushed.” I never said I didn’t like Trish Stratus. However, I won’t sit here and say how much I do like her just to prove that I don’t. My argument is in terms of what the topic is about…in which it seems to me, that you have misconstrued.

          “…and i am a Trish fan just as much as i am a jazz, Victoria, and Lita fan but Trish had more memorable moments in the wwf/wwe than all of them.”

          you said it right there…Trish ahd more memorable moments in the wwf/wwe than all of them.

          …maybe she did. However, I’m basing my opinion on who I think is the greatest Raw diva ever. Someone who has had great RAW moments…not just “memorable moments in the wwf/wwe” like you say.

          thank you.

      • Raekon

        Honestly though, if you would count every little thing on some of the divas, you would have as many things to write as you did for trish aswell.

        I mean you are pointing on various details of some of the same ankles as if they were extra after all (like the mickie things).

  • http://legionofextraordinarywrestlers.spruz.com/ mscandy

    Lita will always be the best in my opinion, she did alot for WWE Divas as far as wrestling is concerned, and she was one of the first! :) LITA FTW

    • EVEROCKS

      100% agreed
