^^^ THAT KILLED ME! :D
I've been wanting to say this for a long time: whenever someone criticizes the way WWE promotes women they are immediately hit with the "women can't draw, all they can do is be eye candy" bomb. This line of thought it prevalent because of wrestling revisionist history concerning women. Women used to draw money. Lots of money. The very idea of women beating the shit out of each other and actually competing in a sport was so bizarre and enthralling it packed houses by itself. Keep in mind when Mildred Burke became the "first" official woman wrestling people were still publishing articles about how women are inferior to men and unable to perform as athletes. In a way, this kind of thinking has been intellectually refuted but it hasn't been culturally refuted and here's how: the entire reason people think women can't draw is because they like to think women are too stupid to grasp the complexities of wrestling like selling, psychology, character creation etc.,
So they rarely even try to make women into wrestlers (in North America); they're always half formed novelties.
Because of the above and the way we've been programmed to see women in wrestling since some guys figured it was better to bring in girlfriends, rats and strippers than actual women wrestlers because the former would fuck them is why no matter what a woman does on the main stage (WWE) it will always get a cold reception.
Titties are not enough to get people invested in the matches, this has been proven. But WWE doesn't want people invested in Divas matches.
But that doesn't mean women are incapable of thrilling a crowd with more than the size of their breast implants.
