Hey, all. I think the Bellas are awful. I can't put my finger on what it is about them that screams "contrived". Though I think many of the divas are just as bad in the ring as them (with exceptions like Gail, Beth, Natty and so forth), they just make me change the channel. I think it may be the fact that the WWE tries to hard to shove them down our throats like the second coming of Laycool + The Beautiful People all rolled in one. They're awful on the mic as well so I have no clue who thinks they cut great promos and keeps allowing them to talk.

I've seen better acting at my little sisters J.H. play productions. And God do I hate the singy songy way the do their promos. As if the audience is full of toddlers or something. You know that voice adults do when they talk to little kids.  Whenever they speak I'm like Ermm

Nice swerve them getting the win against Kelly as with her fueding with Beth/Natayla you'd not expect her to lose to a Bella.

Twin Magic is rather stale though as proper management would make them wear different clothes to avoid refs making the confusion.

LOL at the Bella Twins doing what Nattie/Beth can't do, which is outsmart the champion.

Bret Hart had a stroke 10 yrs ago, coincidentally.

I love the Bellas tbh, especially the one with the vag tat. They are gorgeous, and thats all that matters in womens 'wrestling'. Which is why I dont understand all the shit they get from teh IWC.

I don't think they're that hot tbh, some of the attire they wear is pretty hot though but I don't really rate them, same goes for Eve with me.

Isn't Nikki the one that's really into the wrestling side of it?  While Brie likes working the publicity side.  I only point that out since Brie was the one that was named Divas champion.

Divas of Doom ... or salvation?

By: Katie Raymond September 4, 2011

Stinkfaces. Booty poppin'. If you're a purist about a woman's place inside the WWE ring, you might be wondering what Fabulous Moolah is thinking looking down on the Divas division. Would the iconic figure chalk up the current flux of the division on changing times, or would she say, "Someone needs to save this"?

Beth Phoenix and Natalya, the "Divas of Doom," think so. However, are The Glamazon and third-generation Diva just the two women to call "saviors"?

First, the sly and athletic Brie Bella wins the Divas Championship using underhanded tactics. Diva purists weren't happy. Then, Kelly Kelly - who has improved markedly inside the ring - netted the butterfly title. Diva purists started pointing fingers and lashing out. This can't be happening. Not in a division that has seen the likes of Moolah, Trish Stratus, Hall of Famer Wendi Richter, Lita and Melina bear the Women's Title. On social media, the WWE Universe joined the fight, asking: How are these "model" Divas getting their names etched in the history books? Do only "pretty faces," as according to Beth Phoenix and Natalya, matter?

The WWE Universe took to Twitter to express their dismay and praise the terror-filling twosome, even making The Divas of Doom a worldwide trending topic during SuperSmackDown Tuesday night.

@ButisThisCool: @NatbyNature @TheBethPhoenix-- @RealKellyKelly is the Divas Champion. #ThingsWeNeedToChange #DivasofDoom

@Sparty1181: People need to respect @TheBethPhoenix and @NatbyNature they have earned it. They are the true definition of women's wrestling!#DivasofDoom

@WWENate#ThingsWeNeedToChange The Divas division in WWE! They need a little more than 2 minutes a night to show what they can do! #GiveDivasAChance

 Natalya discusses her destructive pairing with Beth Phoenix
00:32

And so in came these sisters of destruction, carrying holy water and a torch. One was destined to dominate the ring, the other was born to an impressive bloodline. Both have worked tirelessly on their craft. This isn't to say the other Divas haven't worked tirelessly - night in and night out they put their bodies on the line for the WWE Universe's entertainment, but Beth and Natalya's livelihood isn't on the posters or the calendars. Their livelihood is made from breaking bones and taking names. That doesn't necessarily make them saviors, but it certainly gives them purpose.

It might be easy to constantly search or compare the current crop of Divas to Lita and Trish, though an understanding must be made: There will never be another Trish Stratus or Lita. Any comparisons made to them are unfair. Divas Champion Kelly Kelly has worked for five years, becoming one of the most popular Divas, and has taken on all who have stood in her way. The Bellas have taught the WWE Universe with athleticism and determination what a little "Twin Magic" can do. But the line doesn't end there. With talented new Divas like A.J. impressing in their squared-circle prowess and not-quite-Divas-yet like Maxine and the exciting Naomi waiting in the wings, the future looks bright for the Divas division. But that doesn't mean the Divas division's time isn't now.

So does the Divas division need to be saved? Not just yet. But Beth Phoenix and Natalya are certainly doing their share to rejuvenate it.

Some of the Divas took to Twitter on the topic:

@EveMarieTorres: I'd love to step into the ring whomever wrote this, & c who needs saving. #Iwillbootypopinyourfacethenmakeyoutapwwe.me/6kZ8Y
@thebellatwins: Bri & @RealKellyKelly have been the only entertainment that has happened 2 the Diva's Division & have worked harder than anyone!

 @thebellatwins: First off.... Um you want me to slap you with all of my awards and championships I have won? I was a #1 athlete... Which other Diva was?

@thebethphoenix: As long as I can remember I have worked my butt off and been underappreciated while the crowd adores @RealKellyKelly and @EveMarieTorres...

@thebethphoenix: Its not the Divas Division that needs saving, but the WWE Universe. Myself and @NatbyNature are on a mission to make you change your minds.

 

What do you think? Head over to @WWEUniverse on Twitter and WWE's official Facebook page to let your voice be heard!

Sure you'll make a lot of money with them.... Um actually NOT! Lastly, @RealKellyKelly & Us are better than anyone in the past so Katie Raymond check your self and come read this article to my face!

Wow, I just woke up to the craziness! The words spoken by Katie are laughable, but I'm a women who will stand for what I believe in...so...I know what I've given to the fans and that's all what matters. WWE might think your a bunch of puppets that are persuaded by their words..I know how you all feel Smile good and bad, I love it! I mean if WWE cared about Divas why do we have such little time on tv? Why were divas such as Mickey James, Melina and Gail Kim released. Why aren't wrestlers like Sara Del Ray hired? All amazing!.......Kelly Kelly and myself have worked to hard to have an unknown, untalented writer say the things she did. Katie (whoever) Suck it! Love Brie

I find it funny that people are lining up to basically verbally castrate the Bella twins based on these tweets, especially Nikki's. I'm not big on the Bellas, or Kelly Kelly, for that matter, but it's pretty clear this is all a worked shoot and not entirely their real opinions. Especially considering it's based on a WWE.com article. In fact, they were pretty much forced to explain that them stating that they're better than the past isn't to be taken as disrespect but rather confidence, so they're at least trying not to bury bridges.

Interestingly enough, WWE has now decided to step up the Diva division incarnation of the big pipe bomb climate on the company's shows right now, and using dot-com writers and Twitter to boost the process along too. It's actually looking kind of impressive.

         Yeah, it's quite a work, Pac. I love it when people trot out lines likes 'been in WWE 5 years' and 'work harder than anyone' when it has no bearing on actual wrestling ability. Kelly may have 'improved' since she joined WWE, and may 'work hard' but her ring work is still sub-par even for a mid-carder, much less a title holder. No amount of spin is going tomake me disbelieve the reality I see whenever she works in the ring - I can't stop laughing.

To be honest i've watched The Bella Twins and Kelly Kelly improved since their debuts. I remember how the bella's would be around the raw special guest hosts and when they stopped being around other people's arms they had to wrestle. The fact that they are former/ current divas champions is a joke! Anyone remember WWE giving christy hemme a womens title? How about Maria? The fact that they didn't is because they had to really work hard to become a champion.
 
Thats the thing that is wrong with the divas divison. They talented ones are barely getting used while the ones like alicia fox hold the womens title and have a women like Gail kim job to her makes me sick! I see Natalya and beth as very talented women who really dont get the credit they deserve so this divas of doom might change somethings within the divas divsion.
 
 
YES! YES! YES!

I agree that they have improved somewhat. I was surprised at some of the Bella Twins' submission moves in a match a while back. But I agree with ozwwefan that even if they "work hard" they still barely measure up to the best of the division, not just today but yesteryear. If you look at the level of competition in the women's division prior to about 2005 they measure up even less against that.

To me the biggest thing wrong with the "divas" division is its name. The term "diva" represents a beauty mostly there for her pretty face and gorgeous body regardless of how little wrestling skill they have; and I hate that whole policy WWE has. They need to go back to calling it the women's division again and rename the belt the Women's World Title (as I still call it anyway as it's merged into it). 

I am however enjoying the Beth Phoenix and Natalya Neidhart storyline with them attacking the state of the division.

I agree 1000%. They way she was misused by WWE since her 2009 return until her recent release is bad even by WWE's own standards of horribly misusing talent. She was by far one of the best lady wrestlers the company had yet they treated her like she was Frankie Williams.
