– Lady GaGa, ‘Paparazzi’

So here I am jamming to my favourite Lady GaGa song and I realise it reminds me of the current storyline unfolding on Raw, with Beth Phoenix and superfan, Rosa Mendes – FCW’s Roucka. And then it strikes me, we haven’t really weighed in on this whole storyline here at Diva Dirt. So allow me to correct that oversight…

I have to say, I’m quite enjoying this angle unfolding week-by-week. I think it’s quite impressive (for once) of WWE’s Creative team to manage to intertwine two storylines and have them both be compelling. In the foreground, we have Melina vs Beth and in the background, we have this plot unfolding with Rosa too. Who knew Steph and co. could walk and chew gum at the same time?

I’m really enjoying this storyline because for the first time in a long time, I have no idea where it’s going. I know this is a similar plot to what WWE has done in the past: Sable-Tori, Trish-Mickie. But I think most Diva fans have more memories of the latter, I have to say I found the Trish-Mickie storyline pretty predictable. We always knew Mickie would turn on Trish and it dragged, I have to admit. But here, I honestly don’t know where this angle will go. I do see a match between these two at WrestleMania 25; while it would be cool to see a long storyline finally climax at ‘Mania, I’m not sure how I feel about Rosa coming in as a newbie and getting this ‘Mania slot. I would have loved to see Melina vs Beth at the biggest pay per view of the year, I feel Melina or Mickie James really deserve a spot at the event. In that sense, there is some predictability – Beth vs Rosa at ‘Mania – but at the same time, there’s a slight chance it may not go that way. Since the angle is in the early stages, who knows?

I’m really intrigued and captivated thus far and I just hope that this all works out. I’m glad WWE is finally putting some effort into their Diva booking but lo-and-behold… people are still complaining. When I look at comments and read message boards, people are still complaining that it’s a rehash of Trish-Mickie etc. Sometimes people, you just gotta eat some humble pie and sit quietly and watch.

What do you think? Interested or are you a complainer lol? Discuss!
