WWE's Divas Division has certainly seen better days.
The company has lost an astonishing amount of female talent over the past few months (The Bella Twins, Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix to name but a few), meaning the women's roster has grown alarmingly depleted. Furthermore, the woman who have stayed, like Natalya and Layla, have fallen into irrelevance with the booking team seeming reluctant to do anything meaningful with them.
Eve Torres, the current Divas champion, is a good talker and a decent wrestler, but she also seems to be aimlessly drifting in a division that is neglected by the creative team and is ignored by the fans.
Interestingly, in this week's (subscribers-only) F4W Newsletter, Bryan Alvarez gives an update on WWE's feelings on the current state of the division, as well as their future plans for it. It seems WWE are not exactly happy with how things are going, and have some big changes in mind:
With the Layla vs. Eve feud dead, there is an understanding that they need more women quick, since there are zero new challengers left on either the face or heel side. Might be a few call-ups soon.
While it remains to be seen if the company ever will get serious about their women's division, this can only be good news: WWE have several talented Divas in developmental—like Paige and Audrey Marie—and the division desperately needs all the new female wrestlers it can get.
Certainly, the division is in such a state at this point, there's nothing to lose in calling up some new girls.
