      Many divas have had long, historic careers in WWE, but not every diva got immediate recognition --- a lot having to wait years for their shot. But then there are those select few who were immediately thrust into the spotlight, playing significant roles in major angles and such, and they never looked back.

      So which Diva do you feel had the most impressive and memorable rookie year of all time? Was it AJ with her soap opera storylines and main event love triangles? Was it Trish as the devilish valet turned Mr. McMahon's mistress? Was it the extreme Lita as the mega over member of the Hardy Boyz and her memorable feud with the boss' daughter? Was it Mickie with her psycho antics and dark obsession over WWE's premier diva? Or was it an entirely other girl not mentioned; Kharma, Victoria, Sable, Melina etc.?

      Sound off and provide reasons for your opinion. Try not to shy away from voicing your opinions and debating with others. Oh and I'm not here for co-signing either lovelies. Begin.

      Interesting :newspaper:

      I'll have to go with Mickie's. It was just a great way to debut and the fact that she technically wrote her debut, makes it even better. The storyline was also, imo, the greatest Divas storyline ever. Mickie played her role psycho lesbian role to perfection, Trish played her role to perfection too. Heck, even Ashley. The storyline was just amazing.

      Let me not even start with all the great one liners and those flawless segments.

      It's really a tough battle between the first four I mentioned, I'd say. I wanna say AJ, but then I don't because it's still fresh and it hasn't been given the opportunity to stand the test of time.

      Then there's Trish who was basically just more eye candy initially, but then absolutely blew up into a role with the McMahon family, which not many people male or female get to opportunity to do. I mean, can you even count the amount of people in a storyline with the McMahons on one hand?

      Kharma has undoubtedly had the most impact. She appeared like 10 times max and everyone is still praying she returns to WWE. If that isn't impact...

      ---

      I'm gonna just put it out there and go with Mickie James since her first year resulted in the best divas storyline of all time and arguably the best or at least second best feud of all time. I may change my mind though  :laugh2:

      Beth Phoenix won the womens title within 4 months of her debut. Can't get better than that xD

      Mickie was placed into a storyline on her first night which is also impressive.

      Gail won it on her first match just saying. :totally:

      Mickie was the best with no doubts, Willy already stated why.

      I don't think AJ is even a legit option honestly. Mickie James, Lita, and Trish all did much more than she did in her rookie year.

      I'll be going with Mickie. In her rookie year, she began a huge storyline with Trish Stratus, given various segments mic time, played a perfect psycho, defeated a top diva in her Wrestlemania debut, feuded with Lita, wrestled Trish in her last Raw match, and headlined various PPVs.

      But to play devil's advocate, how long did Mickie's storyline with Trish last? Did she actually do anything significant afterwards for the rest of her rookie year? Lack of consistency could hurt...

      Anything to get the thread going :icant:

      But I believe she did get pushed to the back due to Trish's retirement. She did become the main babyface of the division afterwards though :shrug:

      It lasted about 5 or 6 months; she then went on to feud with Beth/Trish and even go over Trish clean, as well as Jazz. Sure her great moments went down, but she did then embark in a feud with Lita, as well as wrestle Trish on her last Raw match.

      I was going to point that out. By the time the Chicago crowd made their way home, she was already becoming stagnant. They tried to drag the feud on even longer but to no avail. She wasn't that good of a normal heel. Her first reign wasn't even that good.

      I disagree. Like I said, that could just be because it's so fresh. I mean, how many other divas can you name who played a significant role in two main event angles, was Raw GM and got to be featured in one PPV main event and guest referee the following, all in about one calendar year if my counting isn't off. Also, if you want impact, if Daniel Bryan becomes a legend in the future, how will people remember it started? Oh yeah, when AJ kissed him at WM and he lost in 18 seconds. That's the makings of a future icon and is at least half of why Trish, Lita, Sherri and Miss Elizabeth are legends; for their influence on the men.

      AJ definitely deserves to be named up there, though her having the most successful rookie year is definitely questionable.

      Lol whoops I was counting AJ's rookie year from her actual debut on NXT in late 2010. She still doesn't rank up with Lita or Mickie, but she has had one of the best in recent years (aside from Kharma).

      Trish Stratus.

      She had a tremendously great first year. From the second she walked out on Heat, everybody's eyes were locked on her. Something that would become a trend. She intrigued everyone. She managed T&A which led to the first chapter of her career long feud with Lita. She paid her dues. She was well known even before she became involved with the McMahons, but when she did, oh boy. One of the coolest feuds ever unfolded in the form of the daddy's little billion dollar princess super bitch and one shameless rookie Canadian. This led to a segment that is still talked about today. Trish being ordered to strip and bark like a dog, the ultimate humiliation. Did I mention: She paid her dues. This all culminated at WrestleMania X-Seven where Mr. McMahon got his comeuppance with a slap that helped Trish embark on an illustrious journey.

      Yeah, if that was the case, I definitely wouldn't have named her  :smh:. NXT still counts as developmental and isn't the main roster. Her official debut was May 27, 2011.

      Beautiful write up. I haven't been to bat for Trish a lot recently, but I think you're definitely on to something.

          According to Fightful Select, former two-time WWE women’s champion Victoria is interested in working as an agent or trainer for either WWE or IMPACT Wrestling if they need the help. The report notes that she isn’t opposed towards doing a “one-off” in-ring return for either promotion, but doesn’t want it to be a quick spot or without substance. However, she does mention that she retired back in September due to her body “feeling rough.”
          There’s also notes regarding her TNA run back in the day, and how she never originally planned to to join the competitor, but was given an offer and a short window to say yes or no. She did wish to use her shoot name (Lisa Marie Varon) while working there, but it ended up being Tara.

          NWA world’s champion Nick Aldis was a recent guest on the Battleground podcast to discuss his wife, WWE superstar Micke James, and the booking she received after returning to television on Raw a few weeks ago. The National Treasure brings up his recent feud with Bruce Prichard, stating that his pettiness knows no bounds and is possibly taking it out on James.
          Aldis continues by claiming that fans saw right through WWE’s “sad” tactics and calls James an all-time great.
