June 2nd, 2014. It’s a date that should in the future go down in history. It was a different time – even though that sounds slightly strange to say given that it was just 15 months ago. Daniel Bryan was WWE Champion, Cesaro was a Heyman guy, Damien Sandow was doing different impressions every week, Adam Rose and Bo Dallas each won singles matches, and the broadcast team over the whole night included Jerry “The King” Lawler, Justin Roberts and Josh Matthews.

In typical fashion I’ve fallen behind with posting over the summer, so to make up for that I’m going to be posting several columns this week: one for each thing that came to mind. First up, I’m going to look at the hot topic of the summer: the divas division. Continue reading
