WWE.com Discusses Whether the Divas Division Needs Saving

Interesting article on WWE.com discussing the recent rise of the Divas of Doom and the positive reaction they’ve received from ‘purist’ women’s wrestling fans. The article goes on to argue whether or not the Divas division needs saving from ‘model’ Divas.

Read excerpt below:

Stinkfaces. Booty poppin’. If you’re a purist about a woman’s place inside the WWE ring, you must be wondering what Fabulous Moolah is thinking looking down on the Divas division. Would the iconic figure chalk up the current flux of the division on changing times, or would she say, “Someone needs to save this”?

Beth Phoenix and Natalya, the “Divas of Doom,” think so. However, are The Glamazon and third-generation Diva just the two women to call “saviors”?

First, Brie Bella wins the Divas Championship. Diva purists cringed. Then, Kelly Kelly – who has improved markedly inside the ring – netted the butterfly title. Diva purists started pointing fingers and lashing out. This can’t be happening. Not in a division that has seen the likes of Moolah, Trish Stratus, Lita and Melina bear the Women’s Title. How are these “model” Divas getting their names etched in the history books? Do only “pretty faces” matter?

Thoughts: This is perhaps one of the most conscious articles about the Divas that has popped up on WWE.com in quite a while.

What do you make of it?
