Perfect 10: Week of October 20th

The Perfect 10 returns! The premise is simple: We will rank the ten Divas or Knockouts who we think have had the best week of television, similar to WWE.com’s Power 25. Who will make the grade and who will fall short? It’s all new and exclusive only at Diva Dirt!

WEEK OF OCTOBER 13th – OCTOBER 19th, 2008

10. Michelle McCool (Last Week: #10)
Staying put at 10 is Michelle McCool, the Divas Champion. Michelle had a tough week this week, dealing with her partner (and #1 Contender) Maria who cost the pair a match on SmackDown.

Erin: Well, that obviously plants the seeds for a feud, which is great for Michelle, as far as I’m concerned. If she were to lose a bit of her babyface image, it would help her tremendously. Besides, since it wasn’t really her fault she lost, it’s not like it was a devastating loss anyways.
Melanie: I hope she doesn’t turn heel, but it looks as though she’s gonna be pushed a bit further in the character department. She came across pretty well this week compared to last week’s robotic acting.

09. Maria (Last Week: #7)
Down two spots is Maria, who seemed to be caught up in a triangle with Michelle McCool and Festus. A week from her big win, Maria goes back to her losing ways.

Erin: It looks like she may be getting an actual storyline, so that alone makes this a step up from the previous weeks since her SmackDown debut. Whether or not this leads to a Divas Championship reign is beyond me..
Melanie: I have a feeling this match will take place at Survivor Series, it’s not my first choice but if they keep building this up as they have done, it could actually be a good match.

08. Natalya (New Entry)
Natalya is a brand new entry this week, the Diva picked up a huge tag team win though she didn’t do much.

Erin: I really wish she had more to do, but with Maryse as the top heel and the Divas Championship being contested between two babyfaces, there’s not much available.
Melanie: Natalya is probably the most underutilised Diva in history, so much potential *sigh*

07. Candice (New Entry)
Candice scored a big tag team win too, bringing her back to the Perfect 10 in a new spot at #7.

Erin: It’s not on the same level as a feud with Beth, but a win’s a win. We’ll see if she was merely a place-holder tag team partner for Kelly or if she’s really back on Raw for good.
Melanie: I don’t think Candice is Raw’s top Diva priority anymore.

06. Christy Hemme (New Entry)
Another new entry is Christy Hemme who makes her Perfect 10 debut at a sizable #6. Christy is trying to be a serious wrestler now apparently and a win over Velvet Sky on a live edition of Impact helped.

Erin: Well, this ought to be interesting. I haven’t seen her wrestle in a longggg time. Maybe this feud with the Beautiful People can bring more out of her than screaming and grimacing.
Melanie: I think it’s really interesting that four years later, Christy’s finally being primed for a wrestling role while her Diva Search counterparts such as Michelle McCool and Candice are already former and current champions.

05. Maryse (Last Week: #9)
Moving up four spots is Maryse, the Diva continues to drive a wedge into Michelle McCool’s plans. This week she pinned the Divas Champion once more.

Erin: Her feud with Michelle was pretty long, but I still wish she could win the Divas Championship. Maybe once this thing with Maria is over, she can assume the spot again. I still think she could be a great heel champion, the first for SmackDown’s division.
Melanie: Is still don’t think we’ve seen the last of Maryse, she continues to one-up Michelle. Maryse vs Maria vs Michelle could be a very interesting triple threat match.

04. Brie Bella (Last Week: 4)
Staying put is Brie Bella. She wasn’t up to much this week but had a few interesting spots with Primo and Carlito.

Erin: Just out with it alreaddddyyy. I don’t want to see them milk this for all it’s worth, but they probably will.
Melanie: I really loved the segments with Brie and Nicole this week. I could actually see Brie, Nicole, Carlito and Primo making a really cool Latin team.

03. Awesome Kong (New Entry)
Skyrocketing back to the Perfect 10 and at a plum #3 is the brand new Knockouts Champion, Awesome Kong! Just call her Queen Kong…

Erin: Well, I knew it was coming, but not on an episode of Impact. Can’t say I’m upset about it, though. Taylor was such a dull champion, having an unstoppable force like Kong as champ is a step up, even if that sort of thing gets boring pretty quick..
Melanie: Let’s hope this is a sign of things to come, the women’s division in TNA has been lacking.

02. Beth Phoenix (Last Week: #1)
Finally dethroned, Beth Phoenix is now our #2. Can the Women’s Champion recover and regain her top spot?

Erin: If she does more than follow Santino around, maybe she’d stay on top. She’s still showing her toughness, but how many people can she yell at before she finally gets back into Divas action? She’s not Chyna, you know..
Melanie: I think the novelty’s worn off and I just want to see her back in the mix of the women’s division.

01. Kelly Kelly (Last Week: #2)
Well, well, look who’s at the top of the chart. Kelly Kelly’s run of success continued in a tag team victory on Raw, giving us a new #1.

Erin: She is progressing very nicely. I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again: I love that they’re pushing her slowly but surely. This isn’t your shotgun-style push. Thank God, because those only breed resentment from the fans. This way, she can be more deserving of the title shot when it comes, and I’m sure it will be coming very soon.
Melanie:I never thought I’d see Kelly at the top of the Perfect 10 but just goes to show how people can improve. She’s come a long way.
