Dirt sheets are putting out storys on a possible mixed tag match – where the WWE Universe would see AJ Lee and John Cena take on Dolph Ziggler and a female partner.
The start of the rumor stated that Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero would be Ziggler’s partner however, on last weeks RAW it confirmed rumors that 2nd generation Diva Tamina Snuka would be serving as her body guard or protector.
It now is being said that Snuka will replace Guerrero in the match, making it AJ Lee and John Cena vs Tamina Snuka and Dolph Ziggler.
If you remember this past Sunday at Survivor Series Tamina Snuka attacked AJ Lee from behind, which wouldn’t make this idea far fetched.
In a WWE 13 interview, WWE Diva icon Amy “Lita” Dumas was asked the similarities and differences between Divas now and when she was in WWE. During the interview she was asked which Diva today would she like to compete against, the answer a WWE Diva who has looked up to her.
I think it’s interesting to see the Divas of today and to see who the fans are attaching to. Obviously, right now, it’s AJ Lee, who’s not the strongest; she’s not one of those classically hot chicks. But she sets herself apart, and you have emotion when she’s out there and you get a sense of who she is, and so I think that’s really cool to see the kid that wasn’t supposed to make it being the one that’s out there, and that’s who the fans want to know more about.
Dirtsheets are reporting that legendary Diva Trish Stratus will NOT be appearing at tonights historic 1000th episode of RAW. In the report it says due to prior yoga commitments. *UPDATE* Trish Stratus DID appear on RAW1000 redoing her infamous yoga session with HHH gone wrong.
On the other hand, Lita – was spotted last night checking into a St. Louis hotel and IS backstage at tonights RAW. No word if she will air or if she is just visiting friends and rumored boyfriend WWE Champion CM Punk. Some fans are hoping to see Trish Stratus and Lita square off one more time while others are hoping for a AJ/Lita confrontation.
Legendary Diva Mae Young (who is 89 years old) was also spotted last night WILL be shown on air.
There are rumors now circulating that WWE is so high on their lead Diva AJ, that they are ready to make her a featured star of company. Some other ‘featured stars’ are CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and John Cena to name just a few and show you the power this would produce. According to the story, people believe that WWE is looking to make her a modern day Sable or Miss Elizabeth – and they have big plans for AJ in the future.
Sable, ( Rena Lesnar ) was well known for her ability to stop men square in their tracks and be completly dominant in the ring. The former multi time Womens Champion had her first stint in the ‘attitude era’ managing then husband Mark Mero, while holding the title. Later returning in 2004 to feud with Torrie and grace the cover of Playboy once again. Sable was not only known for what she did in the ring but outside of the ring, gracing the covers of WWE magazines and PPV promotional posters. A sign of how great Sable truly was at her role, she could enter the ring wearing a potatoe sack and the males in attendence would still drop their jaws to the floor (seriously, that happend). Sable was the original Diva and in a fair amount of fans’ opinions she created the term todays Divas live by ‘Smart, Sexy and Powerful’. Sable of course is now married to UFC/WWE powerhouse Brock Lesnar, the couple has 2 kids.
Miss Elizabeth the worlds most known manager in WWE history. Managed the likes of Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair just to name a few. She graced magazine covers with her poise and grace. She was the center for the main feud in both Wrestlemania IV and Wrestlemania V- where Hogan-Savage for fighting over Elizabeth – both claiming lust or jealousy. Although she never competed as a ‘Diva’ in the ring, she was always dubbed inspiration and reason why many now female wrestlers went into the wrestling industry. The 1987 Woman of the year slammy award winner tragicly died in 1992 due to drug and alcohol overdose after she was found not breathing at her residence she shared with former wrestler Lex Luger.
If this rumor is true WWE must love everything AJ has brought to the table (no pun intended). Possibly being compared to two of thee most iconic woman in this industry ever Sable and Miss Elizabeth. What AJ has brought so far has been compalling to the entire WWE Universe and it has been far too long since a main story was centered around a Diva!
It has been said throught the past weeks that WWE officials and Hof’rs are very high on WWE Diva AJ.
Jim Ross recently put in RAW 7/2/12 blog that: “For my money AJ stole the show Monday night. Her crazy train, dementia riddled, girl next door persona is working….” and “When is the last time that a female garnered the closing shot on a Raw episode? AJ’s image was the last one we saw from the arena Monday night…”
There are now rumors that officials feels AJ can be the next big thing in WWE.
Many fans have the duh obviously face going on as they read this, AJ has been the prime focus for the WWE Championship feud for quite sometime, while the other WWE Divas have struggled for time.
At this point in time AJ is scheduled to be the special guest referee for the CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan match for the WWE Championship at Money In The Bank.
