I love watching WWE Divas on WWE, but when it comes to the game, I refuse to set up and play as them. At most, I’ll have one of them accompany my WWE Superstar just so to provide distraction or whatever it is they do. Even the manager entrance in the game is far from perfect – they just stand one corner and clap or wave instead of accompanying you down the ramp.
And apart from Beth Phoenix, the rest of the Divas are mostly pretty faces. Yes, some of them are agile, daring and have a wrestler charisma, but for someone who grew up with this show, I miss the era when Chyna was part of the roster (she’s now at TNA). WWE Diva championship aside, the Women’s Championship needs someone who is a combination of all that we love in women plus the ability to kick ass in the ring. Trish Stratus and Lita comes to mind.
When KHARMA made a debut in WWE, I was expecting her to fill that void – and she did, for a while. And then she got pregnant and engaged (according to unofficial news) and disappeared for a long time. She still hasn’t returned.
But at least now we can expect to see her in WWE ’12. Oh, and Trish Stratus too.
By the way, those on PS3 can expect to download a cool WWE ’12 theme for their XMB.
Microsoft has just released a new dashboard look for their Xbox360 yesterday, and I hope they look into a new theme redesign too.
