Details On Why WWE Wanted To Sign Former Divas And Why They Aren't Coming Back
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.25.2013

At one point, WWE was planning a ten Diva tag match for Wrestlemania 29 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It would be a team of former Divas (Maria Kanellis, Kelly Kelly, Maryse and the Bellas) vs a team of current Divas led by champion Kaitlyn. Trish Stratus would have managed one of the teams.

The idea was that the current Divas were not over enough and management thought putting them over with recently departed Divas could help them at Wrestlemania, as well as provide a unique attraction.

Negotiations quickly broke down as the former Divas stuck together in discussions. They asked for the rights to their WWE names and copyrights for outside use, which they were denied. This led to Kelly Kelly and Maryse turning down the offer. The Bellas were already planning to come back as early as late 2012, so they signed new full-time deals.

There has also been talk that the former Divas wanted someone else instead of Maria for the team because of comments she made after leaving WWE. It's unknown what those comments were and who else was considered for the role.

WWE has decided to go in a different direction, and right now there is no set plan on the PPV beyond a possible unannounced tag.
