Eva Marie's WWE push did not amount to anything

There have been multiple instances of WWE pushing superstars to the clouds before realizing that the audience do not like someone being forced down their throats. While there are more instances of this on the men's roster, we have seen quite a few pushes on the women's division ending in failure as well.

Eva Marie was a recent example of the fans rejecting 'The chosen one' and the longer Lacey Evans walks up and down the ramp without getting inside the ring, she might go the same way too.

While the women's roster is very strong these days, WWE had a huge problem turning out new stars from 2006 - 2012 after the departures of Lita and Trish left the Divas division directionless and also during the early 2000s when Sable left the company.

This list takes a look at five WWE Divas whom the company tried to push as the next major star, but eventually ended up as disappointments.


#5 Kaitlyn

The only woman in this list to win a Divas Championship, Kaitlyn was the winner of NXT Season 3. But she would probably go down in history as the very last throw-away women's champion in the WWE. She was the one AJ Lee beat in order to start her record-breaking run as Divas Champion, bringing legitimacy back to the title.

Kaitlyn did have a 153-day run as Champion but seemed to be pushed too hard too soon. After forming a tag team called 'Chickbusters' with AJ on SmackDown, Kaitlyn did not distinguish herself in matches against Beth Phoenix and Natalya. After forgettable storylines with the likes of Aksana, a non-acknowledged heel turn and several title matches later, she won the title from a departing Eve Torres when the Divas division was at an all-time low.

Having an ice-cold Tamina Snuka as her challenger did not improve matters and the huge popularity for the rising AJ led to Kaitlyn becoming a bit part player in the last days of the Divas division. She would terminate her contract with WWE in 2014, four years after joining the company.
