  • Last week it was #GiveDivasAChance, this week fans chanted for AJ Lee’s non-wrestler husband instead of her. Nice one WWE Universe, you really gave those Divas a chance…
  • WWE is the No.1 sports channel on YouTube? I thought they were in the “entertainment” industry…
  • Shting is a Shtand up dude
  • If John Cena wants to get booked on the Wrestlemania card then why doesn’t he just steal the Intercontinental Title?
  • Is Seth Rollins going to battle rap Wiz Khalifa???
  • At the forefront of popular culture, as always, WWE made two Olsen twins references this week…
  • Michael Cole doesn’t exaggerate his exaggerations
  • John Cena fears loud noises
  • What did The Miz think that commercial was for…?


AJLeeAn episode of Raw a few weeks back featured Paige & Emma losing to the Bella Twins in about 30 seconds. Paige actually got a ring entrance but was then made to stand around in the ring while a video package for Sting was played.

Fans took umbrage to the extent that a hashtag, #GiveDivasAChance, quickly started trending. The topic was helped along the way with AJ Lee taking to Twitter to ask Stephanie McMahon to use her voice to give the WWE divas more of a chance it the company.

Of course, it could well be an angle but hopefully it is much more than that.

On this blog we have often been quite critical of the divas matches on the main WWE programming and give little thought to their PPV matches. That’s not a reflection on the divas themselves, more on the fact that the WWE barely cares and gives them a matter of minutes to get across a story.

Basically, if the WWE don’t care about the divas, why should we?

It’s not like there aren’t talented performers. Paige and AJ Lee stand out, Natalya and Naomi are accomplished workers and that’s before you even discuss some of the female wrestlers currently performing on NXT.

NXT has definitely shown that the WWE universe will buy into divas wrestling if the performers are given time. Every Monday the company has 3 hours of TV to produce and that’s before we even talk about Smackdown! or Main Event.

It makes absolutely no sense to have the divas perform a filler role on programming. Either use them properly or don’t bother. No one gains anything from them getting 30 second matches or two or three minutes on a PPV.
