Right at the start of the year Eve Torres announced she was leaving WWE to pursue other interests. My first reaction was “wow, another Diva is leaving the company. The exodus continues!”
Overall I thought 2012 was a good year for the WWE, but sadly the Divas division continued to lose their top stars. First the Bella Twins. Then Kharma. Then Kelly Kelly. Then Beth Phoenix. And now Eve. I’ve written about this before, but the number of Divas that have left the company in the past two years is stunning.
As Cageside Seats reported last week, the WWE Divas division got further depleted with the release of Kelly Kelly, who had been pushed as one of their top female babyfaces for the past four years, mainly due to her looks, as she never quite learned how to do even the most elementary things properly, like running the ropes. But she worked hard and could be carried to a respectable match by the much more gifted in ring performer Beth Phoenix, so at least she tried and didn’t coast by on her sex appeal alone.
