Behold a legend who should be in the WWE Hall of Fame but won't because she doesn't need their validation :clap: 

While many wrestling fans noted a search for the "next Trish Stratus" at the end of the new millennium, it seems that at the latter end of this decade, WWE has found itself in search of the next Sable. While it's unfair and unrealistic to expect any of the current generation to exactly match the same success of these two legends, the notable qualities of the archetype have become glaringly apparent in the last year, as WWE's "Women's Evolution" in which women's matches and in-ring capabilities are more consistently highlighted rather than their looks, it's left a void in the hearts of WWE's predominantly male creative team. As a compromise with the audience's demands and their own, instead of compiling a roster full of bombshells, they're just looking for one. One with the same amount of star power, beauty and charisma to line up with some of the bigger names in the company, and not just female. In her prime, Sable was as big of a commodity in WWE as her male counterparts and had tons of potential for mainstream crossover.

This one (queen) didn't work out. So they tried again.

And again (queen).

And again.

With now three tries in the books for a sexy, female bombshell who can shake the audience just with her mere presence, it poses the question: should WWE just give up? Do we need a Diva in the era of Superstars? Is there anyone who can save Gotham City from the threat of Bayley and Ruby Riot?

I think Summer could do it if given the chance. Where the fuck is she?

At Cirque du Soleil. The gag was she was only going to the Mae Young Classic because she was already on her third Vegas trip that month and they just happened to be in town :shook:

She was, but she missed the post-Mania deadline they were looking for as that's their biggest time when they reset rosters for the next couple of months. The dynamic has already been set up for their rosters so that's why they haven't brought her back yet BUT SINCE THEY'RE LETTING PAIGE RETURN THEY SHOULD PROBABLY LET SUMMER RETURN TOO SINCE SUMMER HAS BEEN WAITING/DOESN'T WANT TO GET RELEASED/HASN'T HAD TWO SUSPENSIONS AND A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SCANDAL SINCE SHE GOT INJURED!!!!! :skull::skull::skull:

They should've given it to Carmella but sine they didn't, they should just appease Kelly and give her that part time contract. She's a girl that has already proven to work and could work a better program (post-ring rust) than a Lana can in the ring and serve a better look than a Summer Rae, who the crowd has proven not to care about time and time again.:shrug: 

Edit: Peyton can serve the role way better than any girl they've tried it with too, so there's that!

THIS TEA :innocent2:

I really need the RAW creative team to snap the fuck out of it and give us some diversity within the women's division. They have so many stars with so much potential (Momckie James, Danal Brooke, Emma****) but they insist on feeding us the same old shit week after week. I would SHIT if Paige and Summer returned to fuck shit up :crying:

Maryse would be IDEAL but she signed a no match clause, as opposed to that no bumps clause y'all keep mentioning. Which sucks? Because as ugly as her WM program was, it showed she's most entertaining when she's playing with the girls. :rot:

Eva's character is not a gimmick that can work with any person at any given time. It's hard to capture the essence of that magic once it's gone so I don't see how that relates to the diva search being a failure per se.

Talking about crowd reactions as if vignettes aren't the reason Lana gained her momentum back from being forgotten about and that promoting Summer's ShowMeYourMumu sponsored IG wouldn't serve the same effect. Even Emma got a pop as Emmalina.

Omg @Cooksie I was just thinking about this the other day nn. I really think they should re-do the divasearch a 2013 tea, Where it isn't televised. We got girls like Devin Taylor, Veronica, Lana, Jojo, and Eva from that. I love the "wrestler" girls, but the models look like stars, and just bring a different quality. A bombshell is what todays division is missing, If someone came in and utilized her looks to further herself they would be really over. (See Lana, who was basically over because of her looks and small dresses).

The next Sable is never going to happen. Why? Because the things that made the crowd crazy over her and the things that she was allowed to do could never be thought of nowadays. The crowd is not even nearly as active and into the product as they were. The true illusion and the magic is gone.

Eva was her own beast. She's stunning as well, so she's immediately going to have the crowd's attention. She also had a "distinct" look going for her, so she was immediately memorable. And the heat bitch, the heat. I don't think Eva's magic can be replicated again either.
