WWE Interested In Bringing Back Former Divas, David Otunga Promotes “The Call”

– Monday’s Raw saw the return of The Bella Twins to WWE, who appeared in a backstage segment with Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow and Kaitlyn. The twin duo had been in contract negotiations with officials from the sports-entertainment organization for approximately two months, with offers triggered by the feeling of lacking depth among the Divas ranks and talent in developmental not being ready to be promoted. Contract offers have also been made to Maryse Ouellet and the former Kelly Kelly, Barbie Blank. Both starlets rejected the company’s overtures, but are believed to still be in negotiations.

  • Discussion – What former Divas should WWE bring back? Comment below.

– Promoting Friday’s theater release of WWE Studios’ The Call starring Halle Berry, David Otunga spoke to Arda Ocal of The Baltimore Sun. The WWE Superstar, who plays young gun police officer Jake Devans in the flick, discussed Berry’s sense of humor, loving acting, whether he wants to continue acting, initial impressions from the locker room concerning his Harvard Law degree, head honcho Vince McMahon “hating lawyers,” and more. Regarding his experience filming the movie, Otunga states:

“We shot for a little under two months. The days were great, you get there and they just call you in when you have to do a scene so you get a lot of down time. But you’re in a trailer for a long time, your scenes are laid out for you so you know your lines already, which is a new thing going in for me. In WWE we’re sometimes handed something at the last minute, like ‘here you go to pages’ or ‘oh we’re changing our minds,’ so with this we had the scenes for months. I was comfortable so when it was time to do our scenes they would come and take you to set, we’d knock it out and when you were done you got to go home. It’s easy.”

    What about Maria & Melina?and lol who remembers cherry?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

      The WWE needs Melina back like TNA needs more Hogan on air time. -__-

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

        Hey Melina can actually wrestle, she loves the business and she can help the division.

    • http://twitter.com/TheJackburnsInn joe

      Cherry was the bomb

      • http://www.facebook.com/dan.kincaid.7 Dan Kincaid

        I see what you did there

    • IKeepsit100

      i do…i want them all back! Even though Melina was my second love next to Mickie James then they both turn out to be sluts backstage..still don’t mind seeing both of their nice asses.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      Maria is in ROH and I gave up on her 2 years ago.

  • Deante320

    Maryse decline- damn. K2 declines- whew that was close.

    • IKeepsit100

      I’d take Maryse anyday. She was so damn sexy and atleast it looked like she was trying to wrestle in the ring…not like K2 always screaming rape just running the ropes

  • Dicknology

    How about they just kill the Divas division. That sounds like a much better idea to Dicknology!

  • Reality

    Kelly Kelly? God, please, just kill the division instead of bringing K2 back

  • wwetnadudez

    You want to revive the divas..so you bring k2 back

  • Progress_Now

    the WWE ramp ain’t supposed to be a catwalk. get rid of the plastic models first, then resign Kharma, bring back Melina, Beth Phoenix and Michelle McCool, that’s how you do it. and keep Kelly Kelly the fuck away from it

    • Fighter

      First of all you need to understand that Kharma left on her on will. Last I heard the door has been open for her return same for Michelle. It’s not up to WWE for them to make a return, it’s up to them.

      • Fighter

        her *own will

      • IKeepsit100

        I thought Kharma was on the edge of being fired anyway? Something to do with her weight?

      • Progress_Now

        they said “mutual decision” but she was most likely fired. why on earth would she train like a dog for her return, and then turn around and leave for no reason?

        • Fighter

          She said from her own words, she decided to leave due to losing her child. And anybody knows who have or had a child, if one loses their child, it’s going to take a lot more than a few days, weeks and months to get over such a lost. But off course the IWC fails to recognize that, after all they are anti-children/PG.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      Maryse is not a plastic model she can wrestle.

      • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

        And she has charisma.

        • stormgreyeagle

          and she has Undertaker and hed kick your nuts in lol

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford


      • http://twitter.com/PennyUndead Roger Penland

        Indeed she is a plastic model. have you not seen her playboy shoots? it’s obvious at least her chest is filled with something other than real tit.
        pretty sure she’s had a nose job too. then again, i’m not sure what one refers to when they say “Plastic Model”.

        • Progress_Now

          when I say plastic, I mean the overall package. over-processed, ala Dannii Minogue. and Maryse defo looks “plastic”.

          overdone platinum hair, nosejob, lipjob, titjob, assjob and probably fannyjob. Maryse grosses me the hell out. I’m saddened to realize the Miz is so shallow that would go for something like her.

          • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

            fanny job?…wait is it even possible to get that done?…o_O

          • shaunomac

            You sir are a homosexual. Maryse grosses you out?! ROFL. Now I have heard it all.

          • Progress_Now

            actually I swing both ways, not that it’s relevant. however I got standards and aren’t “everyone walk-in” like you. I’d hate to think of all the STDs you might have collected over the years because you couldn’t keep your legs together.
            you’re probably a fisherman’s basket by now, got crabs and everything else.

          • thedirtydog

            More than a homosexual. She could wet anyone’s dreams… until you realize the Miz has been there done that. But then I’d be over that within seconds.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

            it’s great that she wants to look good, her nose has been broken before so of course a nose job is needed, Maryse is not gross, if The Miz wants to be with her he can be with her so learn some respect for people and their life’s, Michelle McCool was on the Diva Search so it shows how much you know, so Shut Up and learn some respect about what people wanna do in their life’s.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

          that doesn’t matter she is doing it to make something called money and Maryse is my friend and of course she has a nose job it was broken before.

    • Lolita

      Michelle McCool aint coming back; She says shes done with wrestling for ever, Did u know thats Undertakers wife?

  • http://twitter.com/ahnoppa oppa

    So in order to boost the divas division, they want to bring back the divas who happen to be having sex with members of the roster? Interesting.

  • cappa37

    please… no kelly kelly. She was overrated as a model and WAAAY overrated as a wrestler.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dizzydizz69 Justin TheeRatchet Dudek

    kelly kelly= greatest diva ever

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      Are you high Kelly Kelly sucks.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

    Maryse will return anyways, but it might not be until June.

  • Shucky Ducky Quack Quack

  • Raul


  • mr meow

    i don’t see why maryse would return atm, she’s doing her own thing and seems to be having success with house of maryse.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      yeah but that doesn’t matter look at Chris Jericho.

  • http://www.facebook.com/quentin.lewis1 Quentin Lewis

  • http://www.facebook.com/simon.edwards.50115161 Simon Edwards

    Kelly Kelly is very Sexy

  • Rhawk

    Maryse can stay, Kelly can GTFO.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dennis.kristensen.54 Dennis Kristensen

    Offer Trish & Lita a legends deal and have them come in now and again then it pretty much doesnt matter which else diva gets brought back.

  • geordie godsoe

    how about bringing back trish stratus or the hottie stacey keebler

  • http://twitter.com/NewBedfordNerd Eric Matthew Lima

    Melina and Mickie James both need to come back to the WWE,ever since this year began Mickie was not seen much on TV in TNA. And Melina has kept a low profile since she was released. So,I wanna see the WWE bring back Mickie and Melina.

    My List Of Possible Divas That Likely May Have Been Reached Out To

    3.Jillian Hall
    4.Katie Lea Burchill(Wynter)

    5.Not A Former Diva But Has Been An Interest Of WWE – Angelina Love.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

      Actually she was a former diva but it didn’t work out.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jervaughn.stewart Jervaughn Stewart

    Get Undertaker to bring Michelle McCool back. And since I heard they were trying to reach out to Morrison, maybe we could bring back Melina too, as well as beth phoenix and Kharma.

  • Dustin

    Why not Michelle McCool was a great heel. I wouldn’t bring Maria she is hot but not so much talent.

  • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

    why don’t they bring up some of the NXT Divas to the main roster?…=S

  • http://twitter.com/IAmKennyBrown DownTownKennyBrown?

    MY TOP 5
    1 KHARMA
    3 MELINA
    5 ANGELINA(from TNA)

  • AndesMoua

    My votes are Melina, Candice, Michelle Mccool, Jillian, Beth, Kharma, Eve even though she had just left and is doing better things outside of wrestling, Maria, she could use some training, and maybe the awesome Torrie Wilson! As much as I love Kelly Kelly, i think she’s better off modeling but she may be able to come back if she has the proper training and……Maryse…eeehhh……it doesnt really matter for me if she returns but I do miss seeing her do her hair flip!

  • MattyHBK

    Melina would be good but what the wwe needs in the diva division is a ‘big’ diva like Beth Phoenix or Kharma of course everyone would like to see Chyna come back

  • Rodriquez Antonio

    Bellas? NO
    Maryse? Yes
    Beth? Yes
    Melina? Yes
    Kharma? Yes
    Kelly? NO nO NO

  • Christlike

    Kharma, Christy Hemme, Melina, Molly Holly and Maria

  • http://www.facebook.com/kristy.dahlgard Kristy Dahlgard

    I think WWE should definitely consider bringing back Melina and Maryse. They were both talented and popular with the crowd. Melina had great in-ring wrestling ability and Maryse knew how to keep the crowd interested.
