If you look at the Divas in the WWE, and how can you not, they seem to fit a certain look: beautiful, thin, and athletic. The only two who don't fit the same "diva" body type are Beth Phoenix, from my hometown of Buffalo NY, and recently released Mickie James.
While Beth was called "The Glamazon" due to her larger and more muscular stature, Mickie James was featured in a storyline where two other women mocked her weight. The purpose of that storyline was to really bring the heat to the the female heel team of Lay-Cool, because in fact Mickie wasn't overweight. She looked great, she just didn't fit the Barbie Doll mold of the other Divas.
Now TNA has lost several of their Knockouts and you have to wonder if WWE will bring in women who don't fit the current look of the Diva roster.
Bring Victoria Back!
In TNA she was Tara but everyone still knew she was Victoria. Despite her age of 38, she is a beautiful woman who is in great shape.
Could you imagine the draw the show would get if they actually went with that? How many moms love wrestling?! Tons! Real women watch wrestling, and showing a woman of her age competing hard with the younger crowd would be a great story to use.
I'm slightly biased when it comes to Victoria as she reminds me a bit of my wife (she puts in those red highlights for me.) However, I don't think I'll ever look like her favorite, Batista. Sorry, honey.
Roxxi and Taylor Wilde
Two former TNA Knockouts, but to be honest, I'm not a big TNA fan so I can't recall if I've seen them perform. They seem to have that WWE look. Especially Wilde, who looks like TNA's watered down version of Kelly Kelly, but I'm not sure if we need two more Divas that would just blend into the rest.
I've seen her perform, and she's great. She's a powerhouse who threw around the Knockouts and played to her strength of being a big woman. Even Stone Cold Steve Austin said the WWE should bring her in on his Twitter account.
I was never a fan of her name, though; I find it to be mean. I understand she's a big woman, but Kong? She should join the Divas and absolutely go after Lay-Cool and bring up the fact that they have an issue with women who aren't a size one.
We would no doubt have to change her name, not only for copyright purposes but because no woman wants to be known as Kong.
ODB, Jessica Kresa
Though she just recently left TNA, I've also seen her perform and I thought she was great. She's another very real looking woman. She's strong, attractive, and has that bad girl look to her that would go over great in the Divas division.
Her going against Phoenix would be great, and then if the two of them teamed up as some Amazon team, even better! Heck, give her a name like "Artemis" or some other Goddess warrior.
The gimmick of drinking from a flask and slapping herself in the chest won't fit in the PG WWE, but that should stay with TNA. Their southern audience might have liked that but we need to bring her to a new worldly level. She'd be a great Divas champion and has huge potential.
It's said that TNA will probably make a big deal of Mickie James joining TNA and joining the Knockouts. What better way to quell any type of hype that would get by bringing in at least three of their show's former high profile Knockouts?
WWE, if you're reading this, we don't always need pillow fights and bikini contests; have a mix of both and it's bound to be good.
