Two former Divas who were extremely popular despite not being considered ‘wrestlers’, Dawn Marie and Stacy Keibler have been added to WWE.com’s Alumni section. Both were part of what many consider to be the ‘golden age’ of the Divas roster and are in company with fellow Divas from that period including Lita, Torrie Wilson and Trish Stratus.
It looks as though both Divas, who left WWE in their own controversial circumstances have buried the hatchet with WWE so to speak. In 2005, Dawn Marie was released by WWE while pregnant. Dawn filed a lawsuit against the company but later resolved her problems out of court. In recent years, WWE has been supportive of Dawn’s non-profit charity Wrestler’s Rescue.
Meanwhile, Keibler left WWE after finding fame on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Her departure caused some ill-will towards her from WWE management as has been discussed recently with Maria’s release, WWE believes that their stars should only be stars in their ‘Universe’; there was some resentment towards Keibler for going off to Hollywood and finding fame on her own.
Last month, WWE added Jazz to their Alumni section also. The ‘golden age’ pack is nearly complete!
I wonder if the recent Alumni adds could be due to WWE reaching out to these past girls for their supposed new Divas DVD project?
