• Trish Stratus Reacts To Maria Kanellis Saying WWE Should Bring Back The Divas Title
WWE retired the Divas Championship in 2016 at WrestleMania 32 and brought back the Women’s Championship.
During an interview on Grapsody, former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis put over the female superstars of the past that were good wrestlers and then said that there’s still a place for the Divas side of things in pro-wrestling, and that WWE should bring back the Divas Title.
Below is what she said:
“There were a ton. Trish [Stratus], Lita, Ivory caught the tail end of that. Victoria, Molly was in that era. You had workers. Down the line, you have Beth [Phoenix], Melina, Mickie [James], Nattie. You had a ton of workers that came from the Indies too. It was a mix at that time.
I think they should bring back the Butterfly belt (WWE Divas Championship). I do. I know people will disagree with me and that’s fine. That’s why wrestling is great because when you watch wrestling, you don’t see everybody looking exactly the same.
I sometimes write in my Twitter messages, ‘Still a Diva.’ It had to [fluctuate]. You have to go all the way to the right and then all the way to the left and then somewhere in the middle we find what works the best. I still think there’s a place for that.
I still think if you want to be glamorous and do more girly moves, that’s fine, that’s your style. If you want to be more aggressive and go out there with no makeup and wearing no shorts and t-shirt, fine. Talent comes in all forms. Sexy, there is a whole rainbow of sexy. That’s how society is.
I still consider myself a diva because it gave me the first opportunity in my career. I think some of those segments were funny and cute. We should have a little bit of humor to it. There is a place for everyone.”
WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus read these comments and tweeted the following about Maria wanting the Divas Title back:
