  1. It’s sad that these women have so much passion to be part of the Divas division in WWE, but truth is WWE treats those segments like toilet breaks, twitter promos, and for Michael Cole to talk about how ‘great’ he is. 

    Why all the ******* passion when the organization treats you like like a joke?

    • I’ve thought the same so many times! This not only goes for women that want to get into WWE but goes for the women that are already in WWE. Like Eve, Beth, Natalya, Tamina, etc. These ladies have genuine passion and take pride in what they do but all WWE knows is to not utilize them and like you said, treat em like jokes.

      • That’s why you see a lot of actual female talent turning to TNA than WWE nowadays. Kharma only got into WWE because of the hard work she put in with TNA as Awesome Kong. You have to REALLY impres WWE if you can make a division in their actual competition big.

        What gets me is that many female talent want to make it big in WWE but the bar is set so high in such an awkward place that it hurts the dreams of American female wrestling from ever becoming as big as it used to be. And when women that aren’t as attractive come into the fold, they are immediately ridiculed and horribly handled during the booking process that they end up leaving because of it. Then again, some of them stay just for the big paycheck.

        • Agree with you bro but honestly, I don’t think the bar is set high, low or whether there is any bar at all to begin with. I mean, 99% of the time the Divas are given like less than 5 minutes to complete their match, which is quite impossible to tell a story with that. And they are hardly given any backstage promos or any sort of build up to their feuds so all in all what I’m trying to say is, WWE really doesn’t care about them. They are just filler matches, time for the viewers at the arena and at home to go take a leak.

          Btw, about WWE degrading the less attractive women, that’s just disgusting. That’s the only way I know how to put it, DISGUSTING. We’re in 2011, not 1821.Somewhere back in my mind I just hope these stories are not true because everytime I think of it, I feel like I’m a fan and a supporter of a brand that’s run by some trashy-back dated-women degrading-pieces of ****. And that makes me sick.
