Your Two Cents: Wishes & Predictions for 2013

“Your Two Cents” is our interactive feature where we gauge the opinions of our Twitter and Facebook followers on different discussions in women’s wrestling.

This week, we’re asking this: With the new year fast approaching, we want you to make 1 prediction and 1 wish for women’s wrestling in 2013. 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!

Ashley Matthew | Prediction: Naomi will get more title opportunities. Wish: Natalya and Tamina would get better pushes/more title shots.
Eric Holt | Prediction: We’ll see Kaitlyn win the Divas Championship on the 20th anniversary episode of RAW, which takes place Jamuary 14 in her hometown of Houston, Texas. Wish: To see Naomi and AJ Lee as active wrestlers in 2013. Naomi’s performance at TLC showed everyone that she’s got the in-ring skills and the charisma needed to be a diva in WWE. She deserves more than just being Brodus Clay’s backup dancer. As for AJ, I don’t mind seeing her in a non-wrestling role because she’s great at it, but at the same time, it seems like she rarely gets to wrestle nowadays. AJ’s got the in-ring skills as we’ve seen in her previous matches, and I feel that she could help & benefit the division if they had her wrestle more often against the other Divas.
Eric Sturrock | Prediction: There will be a major change in women’s wrestling in some way in 2013 that will change everything either major focus on women or sadly even less women’s division in WWE or TNA. Wish: A new major wrestling company that looks at Wwmen’s wrestling as equal to men that’s 50% men, 50% women and that has a TV deal.
Francisco Mata | Prediction: Kaitlyn wins the Divas Championship. Wish: The re-creation of a new golden era for the Divas, where there is hardcore matches and fans cheering, and lengthy hard-hitting matches! I can dream right?
Josue Guzman | Prediction: 2013 will be the year where we actually get to see the Divas Championship defended at Wrestlemania XXIX. Wish: That the Divas Championship get a brand new and more serious look!
Lars Peter Tvilling Olsen | Prediction: AJ and Kaitlyn will fued for the Divas Championship and both will be Divas Champion at some point next year! Wish: Trish Stratus and Lita “Face” team up to take down Natalya and AJ “Heel” at Wrestlemania!
Martin Bentley | Prediction: Paige gets called up and is Divas Champion by the end of the year. Wish: That Serena Deeb returns to wrestling in 2013.
@Ms_BrittneyXOXO | Prediction: That 2013 will be the year of Alicia Fox. Wish: That she wins the Divas Championship.
@SwissCenation | Prediction/Wish: AJ becoming WWE Divas Champion at Wrestlemania 29. My prediction, my wish, my dream.
Yzo V Behrey | Prediction: Melina will return to pro wrestling in a big way, making an IMPACT in TNA and rekindling her rivalries with Mickie James and Gail Kim. She will also rival Tara, a match we never got in WWE. Wish: That the developmental divas like Paige get called up and with that, they should introduce a new, more marketable Women’s Championship title, following the same record and lineage of Alundra Blaze, Jacqueline, Lita, Trish, Molly Holly etc…

And now we turn it over to you…

What are your two cents on the debate? What are your wishes and predictions for 2013? Tell us in the comments…

    My wish is for Lita to make more appearances this year.

    • WweLitafan4ever

      I meant *next* year.

      • NY Pollard

        Same here. Also, as Yzo Behrry says up from Facebook 2 Cents, I would love for Melina to return. I miss her. She was awesome and a great diva, she shouldn’t have been fired at all. She was Trish Stratus caliber. Beautiful and could wrestle.

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

    For AJ to go back to wrestling! Preferably as a babyface. And for her to win the title at Wrestlemania!
    For Naomi to start wrestling. For Paige to be called up. For Natalya to have a good storyline! Not these comedic storylines! For the divas to have longer matches and good storylines. This has been changing so my prediction for 2013 is for that to continue happening.
    I really don’t think I’m asking for much WWE.

  • HeelEveRulez

    Prediction: Eve and Aj will have a feud at the road for Wrestlemania and Paige called up to main roster. Wish: Aj becoming divas champion after going into a feud with Paige

    • Lita-Sault-666

      How about Eve & Aj feuding up to mania and puttting on this wrestling clinic of a match… The winner is named, only to have Paige run in and beat down the new champion and raises the title above her head!

      Eve/Aj can be replaced by Naomi
      Paige can be replaced by Kharma

  • trishfan11

    I want Eve to be given more screen time – not just matches but promos and segments. She’s the top heel in the divas division and she deserves more screen time. Her heel turn was big but WWE seemed to drop the ball a bit. It was good that she got the title but they need better storylines for her. Hopefully, she can start a heel divas stable, especially if Lilian turns heel and becomes Eve’s personal ring announcer, sings her intro music, etc. Am I the only person who would like Lilian to turn heel?

  • LadyGoDiva

    Prediction:AJ Lee becomes Divas Champion and feud with either Kaitlyn or Eve.

    Wish: Well I have alot of wishes for women’s wrestling in 2013 so I’ll pick that ROH starts a women’s division.

  • shannymac

    Predictions:
    Kaitlyn will win the Divas title sometime in the very near future

    AJ will continue to be WWE’s top Diva

    Wishes:
    NATTIE ACTUALLY GETS BOOKED TO
    HER ABILITIES AND GETS A GOOD PUSH AND MULTIPLE TITLE REIGNS.

    Paige gets called up and Naomi gets to wrestle

  • http://www.facebook.com/TommyStarstruck TommyStarstruck

    Prediction: AJ Lee as Divas Champion

    Wish: Re-vamp of the Divas Division with Naomi Knight, Paige, Natalya, Kaitlyn, Tamina Snuka- and would LOVE to see Sara Del Rey as a Diva as well as Kharma back in the WWE.

    Another wish…. to see someone like Luna Vachon or Jacqueline Moore (or even Chyna) be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame

  • http://www.facebook.com/TommyStarstruck TommyStarstruck

    & maybe some returns- even if they are just one night or just until a certain pay-per-view…

    Melina, Trish Stratus, Lita, Madusa, Jazz, Jacqueline, Ivory, Molly Holly— could all be great choices.

  • charleshp

    I would predict we’ll see Maria Kanellis back in WWE shortly.

  • Kim099

    I finally see Rachelle st claire and the rest of the Nxt Divas division more and for a girl to win American Idol

  • Kim099

    Oh and Kharma back to in the Wwe and Summer Rae

  • WWFoverWWE

    predictions:
    - kaitlyn wins the title.
    - Alicia gets released or leaves on her own.
    - Layla and Natalya will continue to be irrelevent.
    - Naomi gets more matches (hopefully)

    Wishes:
    - Naomi wins the title from the diva who wins it from kaitlyn.

  • B1G_FaN

    Wish:

    Kharma returns to WWE and destroys all the Divas on her way to winning the Diva’s championship. She then throws the Divas Championship into a trash can and says “I am NOT a Diva” and walks off. The next week she comes out with the old Women’s Championship belt!

    Prediction: WWE continues to not care about Divas matches. Whoever holds the belt, however many title reign changes, there is no real push for any Diva in terms of wrestling matches. Only pushes happen with non-wrestling segments, unfortunately.

    • NY Pollard

      I love the way you think…but maybe she shouldn’t trash the title. I don’t agree with Maryse ever being a Champion, same with Bellas and K2, but there were very credible women who fought hard for the Championship. Melina, McCool, Mickie, Nattie, and Beth among others. If anything, perhaps she should retire it the title per request and bring back the Womens Title. I think also that they should redesign it to give it more selling appeal. Because someone once said the divas title is basically about selling it to the kids so they should revamp the title belt appearance to be serious, yet appealing.

      • Lita-Sault-666

        You dont have to be a good wrestler to deserve the title. Kelly was the most popular face and more over than Mickie, resulting in her reign. Maryse was a great character and a great heel, and made up for her lack of wrestling ability with her in-ring persona and comedic theatrics… And the Bellas weren’t that bad in the ring when they were given time and a chance. Yes Nikki was slightly better imo but both did well in the squared circle

  • B1G_FaN

    Another prediction……

    Take a look at seniority in the Divas Division. No Diva lasts longer than 6 years and that is only if they are lucky to make it that long.

    Layla, Eve and Natalya are the new senior Divas, and I don’t think all 3 will be around by this time next year.

  • JillianHallTNA

    Predictions:
    - At least one former WWE diva will die this year.
    - Knockouts Tag Team Championships will get an actually title defense.
    - Sarita and Rosita released.
    - NXT Divas Championship will debut.
    - A WWE diva will be a part of a major WWE tag team stable like The Sheilds for example.
    - Taryn Terrell will get Widows Peak-ed by Tara.
    - Chyna releases another porn movie.
    - Jillian debuts for TNA!!
    Wishes:
    - Jillian wins Knockouts title!!!
    - Diva-Dirt makes new interview with Jillian!!!
    - Kharma gets back to WWE or TNA.
    - TNA returns back 6 sided ring.
    - A sexy divas match like bra & panties match, puding match, pillow fight (real one) and those old but gold matches, at least one.
    - A HARDCORE divas match (hopefully a Main-Event on RAW or Smackdown!) like Steel Cage, Table, Ladder (Yeah right..) and that kind of great stuff!
    - Brooke Hogan gets released and Karen Jarrett comes back!

    These are just a few things I would love to see! Thanks to whoever was reading this, have a nice day! :)

    • TNATaraNonstopAction

      love it ;)
      my wish is
      Jillian and Tara as Tag Team for the TNA KO Tag Titles

      • JillianHallTNA

        HECK YEAH!!!! I wish that would happen too!! *-*

    • TheGamergirl22

      that first one is terrible but most likely Chyna or Sunny

      Sartia and Rostia got to WWE

  • wwesvrrocks101

    Predicition: AJ vs. Kaitlyn fued for the Divas Championship
    Wish: Kharma and The Bellas return to fued.
    Rosita &Sarita finally make an impact!

  • GailKim95

    Predictions: Kaitlyn wins the Divas Championship from Eve, AJ wins the Divas Championship at Wrestlemania and Paige gets called up. Wish: Naomi wrestles more and becomes Divas Champion. Also that TNA hires some awesome Indy talent (especially tag teams) to revive the division

  • WrestlingFan29

    I hope that the Divas division will get more focus, and that feuds will get more build in 2013. I also wish that TNA would hire fresh new talent from the indies, and bring Hamada as well.

    • WrestlingFan29

      bring back*

  • Benni

    Predictions:
    > Kaitlyn or AJ win the Divas championship
    > Maria Menounos or Honey Boo Boo will probably pin a diva at Wrestlemania
    > Trish or Lita to make a appearance.
    > Naomi and Cameron will start wrestling and get out of the dancing gimmick.

    Wishes:
    > Naomi wins Divas championship
    > Alicia Fox, Natalya and Tamina get taken more seriously and get great storylines etc
    > Paige gets called up
    > I wish that there will be no female celebrity defeating a diva ever again!!!!!!!!!!!

  • puppies

    Prediction: An epic feud between Kaitlyn and AJ will occur, and will recieve proper attention due to AJ’s popularity.

    (Selfish) Wish: We get to have a Lita & AJ vs Trish & Kaitlyn or something of the sort at a PPV.

    My real wish is that the Divas continue progressing and getting good booking and storylines, with 13′ being the re-birth of a golden era (or at least a silver era… how about bronze? lol)

  • aldo

    Prediction: Kaitlyn winning the divas title at WM
    Wishes: Natalya, Tamina, Rosa and Alicia getting more air time and awesome matches and storylines not only in WWE.

  • Clarke

    Prediction: Natalya will be gone by the end of the year (I REALLY don’t want it to happen, but sorry, I bet it will)

    Dream: a perfect Divas division in every way

  • DJ8946

    Prediction: Kaitlyn vs Eve on the next RAW in a lengthy match, maybe a gimmick match, Eve retains. (Its rumored that it might happen)

    Kaitlyn wins the Divas Championship on the 20th Anniversary.

    Kaitlyn vs AJ WM 29? AJ wins.

    Naomi or Tamina wins the title.

    Layla retires.

    Paige & Anya debuts.

    The Chickbusters reunite.

    Wish: AJ & Kaitlyn vs Lita and Trish.

    Eve becomes a 4x Divas Champion.

    Naomi, Tamina, Natalya, & Alicia get used more. You could have them be managers & wrestlers Tamina (Usos) Natalya (Tyson Kidd) Alicia (PTP).

    Paige & Anya makes an impact.

    We get more gimmick matches, promos/segments, & brawls.

  • TheGamergirl22

    AJ vs Kaitlyn feud with a street fight dq stipulation

    More Naomi maybe a title feud

    Now that Dolph is gone maybe Vickie can manage Tamina now

    Nattie vs AJ in a Triple H vs Randy Orton 209 type feud

    (where AJ tries to make Nattie’s life a living hell for turning heel on her at 2011)

    A huge stretch but Beth to come back maybe be a Heyman girl seeing that’s a t shirt now

  • 09DHK

    Predictions:
    - Kaitlyn will win the Diva’s title and unrealistically bury EVERY diva on her way to feud and eventually drop the title to AJ at Wrestlemania (*rolls eyes*)

    - Eve gets written off television after Royal Rumble when she drops the Diva’s title.

    - Tamina (definitely), Alicia Fox and/or Layla gets released

    - Velvet will win the Knockouts title and bury the entire division

    - Official deactivation of the Knockouts Tag Team titles

    - Sasha Banks gets called up AFTER Alicia Fox is (most likely) released

    Wishes:
    - Naomi feuds with AJ leading to an EPIC match at Wrestlemania (the first singles match in 7 years I believe)

    - Paige gets called up to the main roster in the summer of 2013 (since WWE doesn’t like to debut anyone before Wrestlemania)

    - Sable gets inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame (even though she was a total bitch in the attitude era, but she seemed to mature over the years)

    - Kharma returns to WWE in the Royal Rumble match, making her the 2nd woman to enter more than once

    - The return of inter-gender matches, and other stipulation/hardcore matches for the division

    - SARITA wins the Knockouts title from whoever Tara drops the title to (probably Velvet)

    - Chyna stops doing porn and starts getting her life together (a stretch I know, and not necessarily get her life back together to return to wrestling, despite the fact that it’d be cool). I don’t want to see her become one of those “Wrestlers Who Died Before 50″ statistics. Speaking of, Happy Birthday Chyna!!!
