Warrior’s Statement On Hall of Fame Induction, & AJ Lee’s Milestone



 

WWE Diva’s Champion AJ Lee has passed 200 days as champion. Today is her 212th day as champion, she’ll pass Maryse’s record tomorrow. & WWE.com has a story up looking at the 5 longest reigns of Diva Champions:

Back in July 2008 when Michelle McCool defeated Natalya in a tournament final to become the first Divas Champion, the WWE Universe was slow to embrace the new title. The Women’s Championship had long stood as the standard-bearer for female wrestling with a lineage that dated back to The Fabulous Moolah’s emergence as champion in 1956. What did this new title have going for it besides a strange butterfly faceplate?

Over time, though, the Divas Championship became the focal point of the division as it enveloped the Women’s Title while making stars out of Beth Phoenix, Maryse and, most recently, current champion AJ Lee. With the wicked Ms. Lee reaching a major career milestone this week, WWE.com looked at the five Divas who not only kept the tightest grasp on the butterfly, but made it the premier prize for women’s wrestling.

    “The Divas championship became the focal point of the division” because WWE made it that way by eliminating the Women’s Championship and its “lineage that dated back to…1956.” Forget history, they wanted their pretty butterfly belt; it isn’t like the WWE Universe had a choice in the matter. At least they have a current champion who can actually work and came up through the indies instead of being scouted from a modeling agency.

    The Divas title didn’t make a star out of Beth Phoenix.. The Women’s title made a star out of Beth Phoenix. I’d say they should bring back the Women’s title, but AJ, Natalya & Tamina would be the only ones worthy of holding it. Plus they’re referred to as Divas & not women wrestlers, so maybe they should make the WWE World title into the WWE Superstars Champion.. :/ Kidding.. Please don’t do that

    Congrats AJ!
