Gail Kim was the most deserving. Arguably the best all around Diva in the WWE, Gail hasn’t been used properly since the small push WWE Creative gave her when she debuted. If you’re a fan of the Divas division and you admire uniqueness, diversity, and a great match, Gail Kim was the Diva you were looking for.
When she returned, I was ecstatic. I’ve always loved Gail and what she brought to the ring. The fact that she never got a proper opportunity due to her time in TNA is mind boggling.
Melina, considering today’s standards, was one of the best Divas in the WWE. She was good in-ring, decent on the microphone, and had some charisma to her.
With that being said, her rumored attitude backstage eliminates her from being my answer here.
Gail Kim was very underused after having a brilliant run in TNA. The Divas division really needed a presence such as Kim’s; unfortunately, she was never given a chance.
Overall, I can’t say she would have had made much of an impact, so I’ll keep going.
David Hart Smith found his niche in the tag-team division. He and Tyson Kidd should have never split as they were easily the most legitimate team in the WWE.
Without Kidd though, Smith was just another lost and buried superstar.
Vladimir Kozlov is a dependable locker-room guy who is willing to do just about anything. He still couldn’t get over with the crowd and had a boring move set. It seems as if Vladimir had just reached his ceiling with the company.
This leaves us with “The Masterpiece,” Chris Masters.
Masters is one of the most agile big men in the business today and proved to be an excellent heel in his first WWE stint. The issue was always with the substance-abuse policy, which got him cut once, and the WWE didn’t seem willing to really give him a push the second time around.
Out of the five, I’d pick Chris Masters.
Let’s see; we had Vladimir Kozlov, Melina, Gail Kim, DH Smith, and Chris Masters released on Friday.
Melina was known to have backstage issues with other people and things.
Kozlov never really impressed me too much. While I liked him when he debuted on SmackDown, everything fell down hill from there, and he didn’t show too much potential.
I thought Smith was already cut before Friday, but he was boring anyway—in the ring and on the mic. Boring.
That leaves us with Gail Kim and Chris Masters.
Everyone knows about Gail’s wrestling ability. She could’ve easily been the best Diva in the locker room if given the chance. But, she certainly wasn’t the youngest in the locker room.
Gail definitely has a future in another organization, be it IMPACT Wrestling or Ring of Honor. She has the skill to succeed anywhere and has found previous success in TNA.
I’m going to pick Chris Masters. He was the most shocking of the five in my opinion.
Masters is a good young talent but was never given the chance.
People were talking about a rumored push after Royal Rumble; little did we know that push would be out the door.
Masters is loaded with potential and deserves better than this. You can replicate, but you can’t duplicate.
Worst of all, we may never see Chris Masters vs. Zack Ryder for the new WWE Internet Championship.
Woo woo woo, you know it, bro. :)
That would be The Masterpiece, Chris Masters.
Masters deserves a chance for another run in the WWE. In all honesty, he could be a solid U.S. or intercontinental champion.
He received a big push when he first entered the WWE and was a low mid-carder ever since it ended. He has had solid matches on Superstars with all talents.
He gets a nice pop every time he wrestles. With a little push, Masters could be one of the most over mid-carders in the WWE.
Plus, he just made an appearance on Z! True Long Island Story. How did he still get released, bro?
