With WrestleMania less than 3 weeks away and no Divas match currently booked for the show, PWInsider.com reports that at one point, there was talk of a 10-Divas tag team match that would have featured “Current Divas vs. Former Divas.”
The current Divas would have included Kaitlyn, Layla and others, while the returning Divas would have been Kelly Kelly, The Bella Twins, Maryse and Maria Kanellis.
2013 Hall of Fame inductee Trish Stratus would have also been brought in to manage one of the teams.
The news coincides with what we’ve been reporting in recent weeks, that WWE has been reaching out to former Divas about returning to the company. According to sources in WWE, several of the ladies who were contacted actually negotiated their deals together – and wanted special stipulations in their contracts, such as the ability to use their WWE ring names after they leave the company.
WWE rarely allows this and told the former Divas, “thanks but no thanks.” The Bella Twins are now back with WWE, but their situation is separate from Kelly Kelly, Maryse and Maria. The Bellas left WWE on good terms last year, with the door open for them to return whenever they wanted.
