WWE Divas Are Out of Line for Being Jealous of Trish Stratus

At WrestleMania 27, Trish Stratus was booked for a mixed tag team match. She teamed with Jersey Shore star Snooki and John Morrison against Dolph Ziggler, Michelle McCool and Layla El.

That didn't sit well with the divas.

Reports have surfaced that they're quite upset with Trish because she was given a spot that should have gone to one of the divas that worked throughout the year for WWE.

Well, they need to live with it.

WrestleMania matches aren't handed out because of loyalty. They're handed out to performers who the company believes will help most in drawing interest from the audience.

Santino Marella wasn't given a spot at WrestleMania because he worked more dates on the road than everyone else. He was given a spot because he was consistently more entertaining than most of the guys on the roster.

While it's true that Stratus has not worked nearly as many dates as the divas have, she's still a bigger draw than the divas that are currently on the WWE roster. Plus, she's going to be more recognizable to casual wrestling fans who were lured in because of Snooki's guest appearance.

Vince McMahon views WrestleMania as his biggest marketing event. The divas should understand and accept that.
