Hey Bleachers, for those who haven't had an opportunity to read my stuff yet (I'm still pretty new), welcome to my imagination. I already wrote an article about how to potentially improve the prestige of the US title, and now I'm taking on the Divas.
For the sake of this article, I will only use what the WWE in its current state has to offer in terms of their talent, etc. That means no Divas (or female wrestlers) from other promotions, Kelly Kelly is the Divas champion, and Kharma is still out to tend to her pregnancy.
I am looking to rehash an idea from a little over a year ago, which helped out the Divas division (mildly) when Melina (then champion) was out with an injury: There was an eight-diva tournament to determine the new champion, which Maryse ended up winning.
Honestly, this tournament was a bit of a wash that didn't catch my attention. It was obviously Plan B, and the effort put into the matches was pretty lackluster.
However, I think a tournament to determine the No. 1 contender could help out.
The first part that would immediately help the division that it would give the Smackdown Divas a chance. Last I checked, the Divas title was meant to be defended universally, and Kelly Kelly should be able to be on both Raw and Smackdown.
When was the last time a Smackdown Divas match had ANY involvement with the title? Michelle McCool and Layla?
Here, I'm proposing both Raw and Smackdown each hold their own tournament, with the winner of each entering Summerslam as co-No. 1 contender to face Kelly Kelly for the belt in a triple-threat match.
Read on to see how I would book it!
