Is it time for the WWE to pull the plug on the agonizing WWE Divas Division? They have already done it twice. 

From 1990 to 1993, the women's division was dead...until the arrival of Alundra Blayze and a new wave of wrestling ladies. When Blayze left in 1995, the division died again only to come back in 1998.

After those issues throughout the early and mid-'90s, the women's division got a fresh new start.

The ensuing era yielded some of the greatest female wrestlers ever to battle in the WWE rings: Trish Stratus, Lita, Chyna, Molly Holly, Victoria, and many others.

But since 2006, after Lita and Stratus left, the WWE has been trying hard to keep the Divas Division alive with the "new generation," led first by Mickie James and later by Beth Phoenix, Melina, Natalya Neidhart, and Michelle McCool.

It seems they are going nowhere with the current Divas. 

With Mickie James gone and Beth Phoenix away for probably six months, will the women's division survive? 

Let's be honest. Who really cares about the Divas except for their eye candy appeal? The Bella Twins almost look like harlots with the Raw's guest hosts.

Michelle McCool is boring, and the other Divas are rarely seen in action.

The WWE can't get the fans interested by using their ladies the way they do. In addition, with 10 or so Divas split in two brands, how can there be any competition? 

What do you all think? Should WWE shut their Divas division as they did in the past to come back in a few years to create interest?
