The Divas division has always been over looked only because of the talent that the company has with it’s male competitors. Sure the fans enjoy something that features the Divas in bikini’s and what not, but some would like to see actual matches. Even though bikini matches haven’t happened recently.
Now there have been great female professional wrestlers in this industry. You can look at legends like The Fabulous Moolah, Mae Young, Madusa Miceli, Judy Grable, Wendi Richter, Jaguar Yokota, Chyna, Trish Stratus, Lita, Victoria and even Ivory.
There are a couple Divas in NXT who will be a force to be reckoned with in the future, but right now the stage belongs to AJ Lee. AJ was with Kaitlyn when NXT was more like a reality show than anything. AJ showed some promising stuff and only got better as time went by. This may be a long stretch, but she’s pretty much the CM Punk of the Divas division.
I may get some heat for that, but she’s great on the microphone and can handle her business in the ring. Yesterday she tweeted that she is now the WWE’s longest reigning Divas Champion. She’s held the title for 214 days now and counting.
It’s official. Longest reigning Diva’s champ. 213 and counting.

The title debuted back on July 20th, 2008 after the Women’s title was scrapped. Lee has been wanting the original championship to be brought back.
AJ has come a long way ever since she was given the general manager’s job awhile ago. I missed her competing in the ring, but as long as she was getting some television time it was all good. I knew that storyline wouldn’t last long and we’d see her in the hunt for the Divas Championship. Now look at her!
She passed up The Miz’s long-time girlfriend, Maryse. But watch out AJ, Paige could be arriving very very soon.
