Double Turn Column: How the WWE Divas Revolution Can Really Take Off


There’s a Divas Revolution underway in WWE, but there still feels like something is missing. That can be solved at Survivor Series.

This past weekend we saw something special in terms of women’s wrestling when Bayley defeated Sasha Banks for the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT Takeover in Brooklyn, NY. These two women got that opportunity to co-main event the night and tore the house down.

It was the culmination of the on-the-rise diva’s revolution. Two women, not Kevin Owens or Finn Balor, were the top highlight of the night.

Then the next night, nine ladies attempted to transfer that revolution to the WWE level. A three-team elimination diva’s match. Something that the WWE Universe had never seen before, and in the end Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch got their victory and revenge on the team that has caused them problems since coming to WWE. It was supposed to be the turning point for the revolution.

Revolution. That word has surrounded the Divas division since Stephanie McMahon introduced Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Charlotte to the WWE Universe. And it’s been a word without a lot of meaning. One could say it was a buzzword to spark some conversation around the diva’s division.

From that point forward, the division has seen an overall. Multiple matches and segments during the night, with the quality of the matches beginning to move in the right direction.

Yet there still feels like there is something missing. An element that can take the revolution over the top and make actual change in women’s wrestling.

It requires ten Divas, a traditional Survivor Series match and some real-storytelling. In true fantasy booking fashion, the diva’s will find themselves on two opposite sides battling for control.

Currently constructed, the women are battling over new-school and old-school. The Bellas represent the old-face of the Divas industry, while PCB is the new, up-and-coming group of superstars trying to take over. And somewhere in between, team BAD finds themselves.

The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend. That’s the common theme that will culminate in a Divas battle with a ton of hype and passion behind it, something that the current revolution lacks.

Sasha Banks will realize that the “friends”she has aligned herself are not able to advance her career. Tamina Snuka and Naomi will realize that in order to eliminate the impending threat of PCB, they will have to set aside their differences with Team Bella and eradicate this “revolution” once and for all.

That leaves Tamina, Naomi and Team Bella against Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch. PCB will soon realize that they will need to bring some young help to make change, and The Boss is not the teammate they want, but the teammate they need.

One more member is still needed to even up the sides, and when the WWE Universe least expects it, the new-comers will even the score with the women that helped tear down the house just this past weekend: Bayley. The perfect storm of things coming full-circle. The real-life promos that the newbies can cut about wanting to change things, to make women’s wrestling matter again, could be “pipebomb” level.

A division filled with quality promos, quality matches and feuds that actually mean something and matter are what have eluded the division for so long. Those in charge seem to be so close to making this thing explode and if pushed in the right direction, women’s wrestling could soon be co-main eventing WrestleMania or SummerSlam.
