You see them? They CAN Wrestle
Before we start passing judgement, we need to correctly analyze the current state of the divas in WWE.
Whenever a diva match is on, fans generally ignore it. The small part of the Internet wrestling community that is genuinely concerned about wrestling—not the pomp and show—can tell you that divas can, in fact, wrestle—they just don't get their due.
For others, women's wrestling will be tough to appreciate. And I won't blame them—we hardly get to see actual wrestling from the divas.
I believe the divas are talented—they CAN WRESTLE—but because they don't get any time to show their skills, many of us dismiss their act.
Of course, when I compare them with wrestlers like Lita, who had a varied move set and was interesting to watch in the ring, today's divas won't necessarily measure up. But does that mean that they can't wrestle?
If the male wrestlers of today can't match up to the legends of the past, does that mean we should dismiss them, too?
To put forth my point that the divas can wrestle, but are just not allowed the time to show their skills, I will list a few good diva matches.
The most recent match was the Beth Phoenix-Eve match at Vengeance. The divas got a good time slot for their match—and the result was something worth watching.
Here are some others:
Alicia Fox vs. Eve (WWE Money In The Bank, 2010)
Alicia Fox vs Kelly Kelly vs Beth Phoenix vs Gail Kim (WWE RAW 8/10/09)
Survivor Series Divas Elimination match 2009 (2009—the year the voices of the majority became popular)
Mickie James vs. Michelle McCool (WWE TLC, 2009)
Beth Phoenix vs. Michelle McCool (WWE Extreme Rules, 2010)
Eve vs. Beth Phoenix (WWE Vengeance, 2011)
There are a handful of other matches which I did not include here. But if you find the time to watch these matches on YouTube, you will realize that all of them had some serious in-ring action.
As you can see, these divas surely can wrestle. All they need is some exposure. They may not measure up to the divas of the past, but if given time they could at least justify the five minutes of pure in-ring action they get, entrances and introductions inside.
