Diva Trade Analysis: Looking at the New Divas Rosters

Just for the sake of compilation and to give you [and us] a picture of what your new Monday, Tuesday and Friday nights will look like, we have made lists of the new Divas roster on each brand:

Raw
Faces:

Melina (Divas Champion)
Brie Bella
Eve Torres
Gail Kim
Kelly Kelly
Nikki Bella

Heels:
Alicia Fox
Jillian Hall
Maryse

SmackDown
Faces:

Maria
Mickie James

Heels:
Michelle McCool (Women’s Champion)
Beth Phoenix
Layla
Natalya

ECW
Faces:

Courtney Taylor
Savannah

Heels:
Katie Lea
Rosa Mendes

As you can see, there are still inconsistencies within the each of the rosters. Let’s look at each brand:

Raw: The face-to-heel ratio here isn’t great, granted they have more depth than SmackDown does [more on that in a minute], but as Steven mentioned on the Roundtable last night they will probably have to do an unexplained heel turn like they did with Alicia Fox earlier this year. My vote goes to Gail FYI…

SmackDown: Even gaining Beth Phoenix & Mickie James, the SmackDown roster is still somewhat depleted as it was prior to the Trade. What does this mean for SmackDown? Well, if you were sick of seeing the same tag team match every week, I wouldn’t hold your breath on anything changing too vastly. Same match, new faces.

Also, Mickie & Maria are now the only two babyfaces on this brand, that doesn’t bode well for the viewers [more Maria wrestling]. Perhaps an unexplained face turn for Layla? If not, I hope they bring up someone like Serena Deeb, but that’s not likely to happen though.

ECW: Honestly, doesn’t need much analysis. I doubt there’ll be much wrestling going on over here except the odd match here & there. ECW really has become WWE’s televised training camp and having three current FCW Divas on there proves it.
