Tonight’s Judgment Day pay per view is yet another disappointing one for us Diva fans, marking the second consecutive pay per view that the Divas have been left off. In fact, 2009 thus far has been wholly disappointing in the pay per view stakes.
WrestleMania not withstanding, and let’s be honest, who’d want to count it… we have only received one Diva match on pay per view this year. That was five months ago when Melina defeated Beth Phoenix for the Women’s Championship at the Royal Rumble.
In comparison to last year, the first five months of 2008 brought us three Divas matches at WrestleMania, Backlash and Judgment Day.
I guess pay per views are hit and miss and we can’t always expect a match, but thus far, the lack of Divas matches hasn’t excited me to watch these events. And I think that’s a market that WWE is missing out on. If we’re really honest, the only pay per view we are guaranteed a Divas match is at Night of Champions this summer.
What say you on the disappointing way that the pay per view calendar has unfolded this year?
