    Wow she is great in talking and in playing her character I hope she is also good in wrestling. Brilliant promo but…Angelina Love called, she wants her gimmick back.

    • Jhonmarco

      Because Angelina Love is the only to have that gimmick, right?
      Oh, wrestling fans…

      • http://ashmultimedia.wordpress.com melon2617

        “Dashing” Cody Rhodes was a ripoff of Laycool who was a ripoff of TPB who was a ripoff of Sable who was a ripoff of Rick Martel (in chick form) who was a ripoff of Gorgeous George and the list goes on and on.

        • redsandman99

          Originality is really hard to find in professional wrestling. I’ll admit though, my mind said “Beautiful People” when I saw this. As long as she can make the gimmick work though and bring like a new flavor to it then whatever. More power to her.

        • MomoMufFinSsFTW

          And TBP was a rip off of the Vince Devils =/ oh how i miss the vince devils D;

        • javiousmckenzie

          TBP had nothing to do with Vince Devil they bullied Ashley for a few weeks but it had nothing to do with her looks. Vince Devils were more so about using there sex appeal to manipulate and get there way TBP were more comical and over the top you cant compare TBP to VInce Devils or PMS really … so stop it

        • MomoMufFinSsFTW

          Stop what? lol There are many similarities with TBP And vince devils,Along with other divas. I Never said i didn’t enjoy them though. Jeez,

  • Lanoom

    Great promo package!

    Would love to see Paige get a “Anti-Diva” promo package and then these two be set-up as THE NXT Divas feud.

  • redsandman99

    Wow…total Beautiful People vibes there.

  • http://ashmultimedia.wordpress.com melon2617

    NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! CALL HER SHAUL!

    With Momma Vickie as the new “Queen Diva,” it’s only a matter of time before she’s on the main roster. With Dawwwwlf and Shaul as a stable, Vickie could be managing the World and Divas champions soon enough!

  • Raekon

    The promo is great.
    Just wondering who will play the jobber role, audrey, paige or caylee?
    Dont remember all the spoilers anymore. x_x

    • GetFoxy

      paige from memory

  • Shan

    Exfoliating Ugliness Tour? (Throws hands up in exasperation). Whatever, at least her promo skills rock.

  • GetFoxy

    i loved this promo haha and i love raquel although to rid the world of repulsive reminded me of cleansing the world one ugly person at a time. i still loved it thoe ahaha

  • shameronstar

    Not many females get debut vignettes! wwe must like her:)

  • Rhawk

    She basically… she’s the female Damien Sandow? =-P
    Was hoping they’d rebrand her as a Guerrero but mind you, with this gimmick, I’m not sure thats the best course of action right now. Maybe in the future…

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    sounds good cant wait :)

  • AdrianRay

    Love. She’s seems like perfect fit for a role such as this. Can’t wait until her official debut on the main roster.

  • Nostalgia

    This is the WWE testing grounds. NXT

  • AfroJack

    why the comparison to TBP!? They are just a rip-off of many wrestlers before them.

    Can’t wait for her debut but I’m confused, spoilers suggested that she wasn’t competing until Taping 2 week 4

  • http://twitter.com/BroskiRomano Ryan

    Nice haha one ugly person at a time just like the BPs!! BPs rocked maybe they ripped other pol but these bitches perfected the role.
    And sable maryse and bps are totally different ppl much like despite the similarities BPs and lay cool are different.. Even those Vince’s devils were different..they were just vinces hot whores haha!!

    Good luck Raquel Guerrero!! Perfect that role and bag ugly pol if u have to!! Fuck the anti bully campaigns, they are just campaigns to train these generation I kids to be giant vaginas!! Bully ugly pple Raquel!!! Ur gonna be rocking alongside Vickie n Eddie would be proud bro!!

    • Jhonmarco

      I just can’t with that comment of turning kids into big vaginas. You sir are ridiculous and need help.

      • http://twitter.com/BroskiRomano Ryan

        Well hey I cant stand it either..tell that to the Anti-bully campaigns…If a Kid is fat and someone calls him fat…fat kid now wants to commit suicide, make a scene instead of you know…working out, get strong…Its GET TOUGH bro
        I seriously cant stand pple like that who dont toughen up and the pple who enforce them to stay the way they are rather than encouraging the youth to Become better, stronger, to test the limits, to become stronger and be the best you can be..Na bro what do you get? Ppl like you

        • Addy

          Yeah bro. Bro, feelings? C’mon bro, bros can’t be upset when people insult them and bro sincerely wanting to kill oneself is obviously bro just making a scene. Bro.

          Mocking bitch moment aside? Get over yourself. You are ridiculous.

        • Jhonmarco

          Dead at your first part of your comment Addy. I concur by the way! Guy is a douche bag who doesn’t realize he is; worest kind of douche bag.

  • Lily

    TBP were actually original. They were there to get rid of ‘ugly’ people something that wasn’t done by all the other comparisons.

    ‘Cleansing the world one ugly person at a time’ to ‘the exfoliating ugliness tour’.

    • http://twitter.com/BroskiRomano Ryan

      Yup Lily BPs were something else. Totally digged how they would bag the less attractive females like ODB Kong Roxxi And even went after Gail Kim Daffney Taylor Wilde and a few other hot looking ones, but all in the spirit of the storyline!!

    • JJ

      I was just going to say this.

      You can find similarities in plenty of superstars/divas. LayCool weren’t copies of TBP in character, but there were enough similarities to draw the comparisons. Were TBP copies of Sable? No, but again there were similarities.

      This is the closest we’ve gotten to an outright copy. The catchphrase is hilariously close to being the same.

      • MomoMufFinSsFTW

        TBP imo ripped off Vince’s devils Entrance But that’s the only thing i noticed i do see sable vibes though too

        • MomoMufFinSsFTW

          Then again no wrestlers are really original

    • perceval

      If you want to get technical, The Beautiful People AND LayCool lifted heavily from Vince’s Devils. On Youtube, look up “WWE – Trish Stratus VS Torrie Wilson” and you’ll see where TBP got their entrance, as well as parodying celebs like Paris Hilton (including the little dog that Paris always had with her). You’ll also see something that came to be identified with LayCool.

      TBP’s addition was the makeover thing, while LayCool’s was the BFF thing.

      Of course, everyone’s influenced strongly by what has come before.

      • MomoMufFinSsFTW

        True

      • HoustonHomewrecker

        Not true. Velvet had been doing that entrance in the indies with April Hunter in their T&A tag team. That was way before “Vince’s Devils”. TBP gimmick was a rip off of her team T&A(Talia&April) and TeamBlondage (Krissy Vain and Amber Oneal). TBP have even worn the same outfits as Team Blondage

        • perceval

          Vince’s Angels formed in August 2005, when Torrie & Candice first did the crawl through the other girl’s legs entrance. Talia & April first teamed in April 2006. So, that’s eight months before Velvet could have been doing it with April.

        • http://twitter.com/BroskiRomano Ryan

          Seriously who the f*** cares which female ripped who off…Velvet Sky n Angelina dry humped the rope…Candice n Torrie dry humped each other…I thought Candice n Torrie were the hottest ones no doubt!!! Melina could split her legs wide open…
          Maryse flips her hair…

          Come on is what it is…all these “borrowed” personalities and manerisms all made LayCool Sable Candice n Torrie, BPs and Maryse great in their own individual special way haha

  • wl75

    Raquel better be careful if she’s ever in Europe with that gimmick- there’s already an “Alpha Female” who could probably exfoliate her….

  • javiousmckenzie

    Wish this was Angelina Love debut promo instead …. and im not being mean but looks like this gimmick would have worked with a more attractive diva :(

    • jayjayholler

      100% agree

    • http://twitter.com/BroskiRomano Ryan

      Na bro ur the first to say it…it’s in everybody’s mind though and it’s true. No worries

    • wl75

      Maybe that’s part of the gimmick? All the “tweets” in the promo were by her, so it looks like it could be a “person who thinks she’s all that but really isn’t” character- sort of a reverse Maryse-type.

      • javiousmckenzie

        @Wl75 That is giving creative to much credit

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

          all the tweets from her are things girls in my high school said, google them and im sure you will see she did not make those “quotes” up !

    • Jhonmarco

      LOL the irony in that as I think Angelina tends to look ugly and “man-ish”.

      • number1AngelinaLovefan

        Well that is your opinion. I for one think Angelina is hot

  • Jordan

    I think Raquel Diaz is a better ring name than Shaul Guerrero, but I’m a little disappointed that they didn’t keep her in the Guerrero family by name. Her gimmick is fresh for WWE, but not fresh to wrestling… If you weren’t getting “Beautiful People” vibes – you’re in denial, yet at the end of the day – it’s all about making it your own and I think she’ll definitely do that.

    • perceval

      Of course, when TBP debuted, if you weren’t getting “Vince’s Devils” vibes, you were in denial.

      When Shaul first took the “Raquel Diaz” name, AJ (in the earlier version of her psycho gimmick) cut a great promo on the subject. See “FCW – Raquel Diaz, Caylee Turner, & AJ Lee (March 6, 2011)”.

  • koshiro

    Yes, it reminds us TBP, but I liked.
    She is great in the mic, the promo was very nice.

    The tapings for this episode (and the following) will be tonight right?

  • TehKardashianKing

    I’m in love with Raquel and her gimmick……. <3

    In other news, Nikki Bella has boob implants now.

  • Looking Glass

    She says the word ‘Exfoliating Ugliness’ and people are on about ripping this, that and the other. Yes, she’s a prima donna, but I don’t see her necessarily a copy at all. The Alpha Female, Ultra Diva seemed more of the main focus. I think people should just wait and see before branding her Angelina Love.

  • shameronstar

    I think Raquel’s gimmick is more a Lady Gaga kind of persona with a little Beautiful People mixed in to give the whole “Mean Girls” thing a new spin!

  • DivaSmark

    She had kind of a Melina attitude to her voice. I don’t think they’d rip any more off The Beautiful People. If she’s going to be the “Ultra Diva,” who else would fit that description originally than Melina herself? This should be interesting.

    • http://twitter.com/BroskiRomano Ryan

      I see it too…Maxine doing this kind of thing would rock haha
      But I guess it fits more to Raquels level since Raquel is young and looks young therefore ACTS like a little high schooler lol

      Maxine is more of a woman than a girl…Maxine is too hot and GONE lol

      • fahkyooh

        I don’t see Melina in her AT all. Melina had a more dominant, angry tone in her voice and speech. This girl has way more of a Mean Girls-edge to her.

  • DIVASKO

    Is like Melina 2005/6

  • fahkyooh

    I’m not even playing.. This is the best Diva video package I’ve ever seen. SOOOOO FIERCE. She is amazing. I hope she can improve more in the ring though.
