Women in the WWE have been minor sideshows for far too long. When I was young, and first became interested in the WWE, one of the first rivalries I was actually interested in was McMahon/Stone Cold. After that waned, when Chyna's pursuit of the Intercontinental Championship began, I was more interested than ever. It suggested that literally anyone can succeed in the business if they work out hard enough, train hard enough and are strong enough. Kia Stevens works out, trains just as hard and is just as strong as any of the male superstars. She has all the physical and talent requirements to be a major title holder. She can actually fight well and has spent nearly a decade honing her skills. Quite frankly, she's gorgeous, but also has muscle mass behind it, unlike the plain and simple eye candy that is the rest of the women's division. Kharma deserves just as much air time as John Cena. If Cena can pander to children by gracing millions of Fruity Pebbles boxes, if Santino Marella can pander to children by playing with a puppet, if Zack Ryder can pander to children by being oh so hip with the shades and the wigs, if Kane can pander to children by wearing a lace front yaki wig there is no reason whatsoever that women don't deserve the respect of a female in the top tier of the company. It would sure as hell at least partially make up for the disrespect of women that Aksana, and the Divas of Doom storyline perpetuates.
