With the Bella Twins on their way out of the company at the end of April, the WWE is already trying to get a new Diva to help fill the roster in former Miss USA winner, Rima Fakih, to help the struggling division.
Even though it is being reported that she’ll be joining the company, the former pageant winner made her opinion known on the subject with the rumors swirling that she will be joining the company in the near future.
Rima Fakih denied signing with WWE on her Twitter, writing, "Not signed! #rumor." Fakih had told German celebrity gossip website Promiflash.de that she had signed a contract with the organization at the WrestleMania Premiere Party last month, stating, "You are the first to respond to me, but I can now tell you that I will definitely be part of WWE."
On paper, you would probably think the WWE is just trying to sign Fakih to a deal because she would be a name that could get them some publicity following the signing.
Before going on to win the Miss USA crown in 2010, Fakih actually participated in the fifth and most recent season of Tough Enough before she was the fourth person eliminated from the WWE reality show.
As I mentioned earlier in the article, the Divas division certainly needs every bit of help it can get at this point with the roster being made of pretty much Beth Phoenix, Eve and Kelly Kelly as the top stars.
Even though she showed no improvement in the week she was eliminated from Tough Enough, I think the WWE will put some effort into the training of Fakih so the new Diva will be a success in the company.
Despite what the rumors say about Fakih joining the WWE as a new Diva, do you think it’s a good idea for the company to bring in the former Miss USA winner to help fill out the Divas division this year?
