WWE Signs Another New Diva

It looks like WWE has signed another independent talent in Mercedes KV.

Mercedes was spotted on an episode of FCW’s television show along with Kayla Armstrong (daughter of WWE referee, Scott) and Sara Del Rey a few weeks ago, sparking speculation that she may be WWE-bound.

Chaotic Wrestling, which features Mercedes as its Women’s Champion, announced her signing via Facebook, writing: “JUST ANNOUNCED in LOWELL, MA – Mercedes KV will be leaving Chaotic Wrestling as Women’s Champion, to report to the WWE training facility, FCW/NXT in Florida. All of us at Chaotic Wrestling want to congratulate Mercedes and wish her luck!”

Congrats to Mercedes!

Thanks to @SuYungCom on Twitter for the heads up.

    a bunch of divas and no ring time

    • charleshp

      they’re getting more ring time, if nothing else to fill the time. The trick now is one of them HAS to become a star a la AJ and help carry the division.

      • PeriodPalace

        i read on a website that triple h is going to focus less on divas when he gets more power cause he dosent like womans wrestling , im surprised diva dirt didnt report on that

        • perceval

          Yeah, one of the dirt sheets said that. The Observer, which is more reputable, is saying that he wants a small group of talented wrestling women working the matches.

          The Golden Era, it’s worth noting, always only had about 5 – 7 women actively competing in the Women’s Division at a time. The pure eye candy like Stacy would get thrown into the occasional match, but were never really considered part of the Division.

          I realize Maryse, Kelly, & the Bellas have a lot of fans around here, but was it really good for the Division to make them the center of it? Was that the best way to utilize them? The Women’s Division of 2002-08 had it’s ups and downs, but Championship matches, then, were never called “bathroom break.”

          I’m guessing Trip thinks audiences would enjoy a Natalya vs Sara Del Rey match more than they did Kelly Kelly vs Brie Bella.

    • perceval

      Quality talent will mean matches that aren’t “bathroom breaks” and therefore worth putting on TV.

      • TheLadySamantha

        WWE already have quality talent that aren’t being used.

        • perceval

          Beth & Nattie can’t do it all by themselves, as last year proved. You have to admit the talent pool in 2002-08 was much better than it’s been the last few years.

          Currently, the Division reminds me of 2000-01, when the Women’s Championship was rarely defended, eventually disappearing outright for six months. Then, at Survivor Series, the Championship was suddenly revived, Jazz debuted, and the Golden Era began.

    Nice :) I’m glad WWE has signed another wrestler instead of some talentless hack who doesn’t care about wrestling. Plus she’s hot so that’s a bonus

    I hope WWE does decide to turn their division around- start respecting the women, start giving them TV time and legitimate storylines [yes some without men], stop with the misogyny, stop hiring talentless hacks, stop calling them divas, etc- a women’s division could be pretty profitable

    Congratulations Mercedes

    I hope it goes well

    D’aww, thanks for the credit :P

    Looking forward to seeing what KV brings to the table :)

  • javiousmckenzie

    looks like some random porn star but we will see

    • Kayfabe!

      shes pretty good in the ring actually look her up. She had an awesome match with Mistress Belmont!!!

  • bromero329

    She looks hot

  • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

    She looks stunning….shes only 20 years old so she could be big for wwe…

  • WWFoverWWE

    I don’t expect her to last. Heck, I don’t expect most of these new signings to last.

    melody from pcd lol

    She’s from CALIFORNIA ? respresent girl she’s is really PRETTY
    yay

  • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

    looks like this could be the reason behind caylee and sofia’s releases-to make room for new blood?

    congratulations and good luck to her =)

    • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

      I think that may be the case, especially with Christina, after all, she really wasn’t that great in the ring, and this girl can go!

  • http://Www.Facebook.com/StuartWilliamMcKay StuartWilliamMckay

    theres no tv or ring time the now but i think its just because they are re doing the whole division, i would not mind if they did not appear on tv for the next couple of months and then came back with a bang ! one can dream eh ?

    • perceval

      It’s happened, before. The Women’s Championship was gone for SIX MONTHS before the Golden Era began at Survivor Series ’01.

  • mikie91

    Great signing!! She actually is pretty good in the ring and shows so much potential.I reccomend for people to youtube her. I remember seeing her over a year ago on yotube and thought she could be a great signee! Glad they did. Congrats Mercedes!

  • EVEROCKS

    At first i saw her face and i was like WOW pretty…
    Then i saw the whole thing and i was like uhh damn shes pretty skinny :o
    Lol i just hope she brings talent to the table…

    • TheLadySamantha

      Literally same.

    • SoapSoDope

      I don’t think it matters what your body type is (i.e. overweight, skinny, etc..) as long as they can work a really good match, I’m happy. And there are some women wrestlers that are super tiny and put on a really good match. Examples: Angelina Love, Madison Rayne, AJ Lee and others.

      • EVEROCKS

        i dont like a loves body!! D: i think she doesn’t look healthy

  • Glen

    Okay so she is good. This means that they will release her or will eventually have her on the main roster in promos and no matches. I don’t get what the WWE has against women that can actually wrestle. My hope is that since she is pretty, they will give her watered down matches and promote her at the very least. I actually could see her being popular.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    awesome, love when they sign some indy women, its awesome news, kinda makes up for releasing Sofia lol

  • Melinafan4ever

    Just saw one of her matches shes reall skinny and her body looks weird she needs to gain a little muscle because even though shes skinny she still jiggles

    • http://www.youtube.com/jillfan1 Jillfan1

      she probaly will look at AJ she is toned and thick

  • Raekon

    A very good signing!
    She is a good in ring competitor.
    The only thing she needs to improve a bit is her facial expressions when she sells moves cause that’s unfortunately many indy wrestlers are lacking.

    I’m sure that this can easily be improved down in FCW/NXT though so not a real problem. :)

    I saw some people saying she is skinny but that’s not the case.
    AJ is skinnier than her.

    Other than that, it does say little about the amount of strength one has cause I have seen people like that picking up 85+ kilos easily while others that had muscles on had difficulties to do so.

    Good luck and congrats to mercedes! :)

  • Mr. Asstastic

    She’s like, really pretty.

  • Spike7000

    Congrats to her!

    Don’t be surprised to see more signings since there`s 2 big tryout camps coming up, one during Summerslam weekend and the other at the end of next month.

  • Lita-Sault-666

    She looks a little like Eva Longoria, Gabby from Desperate Housewives! :P.
    All these new signings give me hope for the future, but I read somewhere that when Hunter takes over he’s gonna’ focus on Tag Teams, leaving even less time for the Divas…

  • http://realxavierlee.tumblr.com Xavier Lee

    All I want is for Natalya, Tamina, Alicia, & Eve to be put at the front of the division. Don’t knock AJ, Vickie, or Kelly, just start putting these 4 ladies in the mix more. Make Natalya babyface, Alicia recently wrestled as a heel, Eve is already heel, and Tamina is a face. 2 Heels, 2 Faces.

    I think Eve should take the title off of Layla, and reign for a while, til Royal Rumble, or thru Mania. Then like I said, make Natalya a face, and have her defeat Eve for the belt between Royal Rumble & Mania. I think both Divas can carry the division into the new year well, and I’m sure AJ will be Divas champion by next year.

    Alicia Fox and Tamina can be mixed into the feuds of Layla, Eve, & Natalya as champions. Just some new competition instead of the same old same old.

  • jayjayholler

    This means nothing to me. I’m still bummed Maxine left from the entertainment point of view and Sofia Cortez from the wrestling side. My only hopes now are on Paige.

  • LaylaElFan

    Congrats to her!! She’s really pretty

  • wweandtnadivafan
