WWE Divas - Excellent Entertainment For All

Jun 11, 2008
Referring to a woman as a 'diva' is an ultimate compliment. It means 'to be outstanding and talented.' The word originates from the Latin 'divus', which means 'divine one.' The word diva is used to refer to the most famous female celebrities and it's used on film stars, singers, performing artists and now, the well-built and shapely women of World Wrestling Entertainment.

WWE divas are beautiful, sexy and strong - a potent combination. Just to name some, Beth Phoenix, Torrie Wilson, Melina Perez, Maria Kanellis, Victoria and Jillian Hall are some of these lovely ladies, who step into the ring night after night and risk life and limb with some spectacular and physically demanding moves, at the same time managing to look stunning.

But WWE divas did not always put on a show this way. Though they were always lovely, their in-ring action used to be severely limited. They used to act as valets to popular male competitors, accompanying them to the ring and often, giving them some, not strictly legal, but infinitely entertaining, help. Stars like the Heart Break Kid Shawn Michaels, Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage had valets of this sort. The first WWE divas to garner attention as wrestlers were the likes of Trish Stratus, Sensational Sherri Martel, Miss Elizabeth, Sunny, Sable and Terri Runnel. Terri and Trish became celebrated as pro wrestlers in their own right.

Divas have come and gone and it's been rough-and-tumble for them throughout the years. The most famous WWE title for female wrestlers is appropriately named WWE Women's Title. These WWE divas have made women's wrestling so popular that ambitious young contestants flock the annual WWE Diva Search competition with hopes of becoming the next diva.

Now, WWE divas get main billing for their fights and these matches have great drawing power, not the least because of the rather unorthodox nature of these matches. Lingerie pillow fights, bikini battle royals and pudding and gravy bowl matches always attract quite a bit of attention and not just from WWE fans! They participate in regular events such as Smackdown, Raw, ECW and Pay-Per-View.

The reigning WWE Raw Women's Championship title holder is Mickie James, who was awarded the title on 14th April 2008.

WWE has three brands, or shows, every week, each with its own roster - RAW, Smackdown and ECW. Professional wrestling is more than just a sport, it's also a form of entertainment of the same level as performing arts, requiring as much dedication and training from its athletes. It is also a drama that unfolds every day. WWE is the biggest pro wrestling promoter in the world.
