WWE are to host a Diva Search in Los Angeles, California this week according to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
The event, which is not open to the public, will feature “attractive, athletic young ladies” from various modelling agencies.
The report states that candidates being wrestling fans is a plus, but not essential.
It is currently unknown whether this is just a general scouting of potential developmental talent or if the search will transition to an official Diva Search television competition.
Thoughts: Whilst many will not be happy about this move, some of the best women on WWE’s roster over the past few years, like Michelle McCool, Layla, Eve Torres and Maryse, have all came from the Diva Search. All started with no wrestling experience and went on to become either outstanding competitors, highly entertaining characters or both. With the NXT Divas roster stacked as it is, I think a Diva Search show on the WWE Network would be a good idea, but only time will tell to see if the WWE Network ever gets off the ground and if in fact the Diva Search will return to our screens.
