I don't know if anyone's paying any attention to the Babe of the Year Tournament (babe.wwe.com) on WWE.com. I just looked at it for the first time in a couple of weeks, and was shocked at the results. Lita, who arguably had the toughest road, defeated Victoria in the first round, defeated Trish, who won the past couple of these tournaments, in the second round, and defeated Torrie in the semifinals. Now she's up against Stacy in the finals. My question is, how? I would have voted for her opponent in very matchup. Was it the pregnant glow? Is WWE fixing the results? It's just odd that she beat both defending champion Trish and Playboy covergirl Torrie in fan voting.

Well, I kinda felt bad that she lost the baby, so I threw a sympathy vote her way. If she wins, it'll help her feel a lot better about herself.

It's kinda mean that they put Mae Young and Moolah in the competition, but don't give them the wallpaper the other 14 girls get.

Molly's wallpaper-baldness!

Trish is out? WTF? They probably got sick of her winning but it's probably because she turned heel since the last tournament, Stacy hasen't been getting great TV time over the last few months while Lita has, so Lita might win.

I have to admit I have been keeping an eye out on this contest..and I noticed something.
Some rounds (for instance Gail vs TOrrie) lasted for days..
Others lasted for less than a full day, as in "we now have the result we want, close it up"
Coincidentally those were Stacy vs the fired Sable, Lita vs Trish and Lita vs Torrie.

Besides admitting I kept an eye on it, I must now admit I gave the results some thoughts too..(along with a friend of mine)

There are 2 options
1- Lita is supposed to win and it's rigged all the way.
2- Stacy has to win, so they fix it to give her a weak opponent and then give her a clean finals win..

Don't you actually have to be pregnant and/or have a baby to lose a baby?

And we wonder why the WWE gives us crap like this...people believe it. It's pathetic, it makes me sick.

Come on! Have some fun with this. I don't mind the divas especially on WWE.com, and as long as they don't take up too much TV time, it's often a pleasant comic relief. It's also an opportunity for storyline progression - when done well (ie Trish and Jericho, Christian, etc.).

The Babe of the Year contest has not been plastered all over the TV this year, so that's a good thing. Of course, the divasearch crapfest has been atrocious...

And aside from Lita's otherwise horrible acting, her storyline has been pretty darn entertaining for most of this year - blowing off Christian, warning Trish, return of Mattitude, giving Kane a reason to entertain us, pregnancy test, telling Matt the results, marriage angle and ceremony, and finally SNITSKY - whose acting is even worse than she and Matt together! At least the writers are trying with her character to make her actions progress from week to week, and she hasn't had to blow too many spots or string too many lines together along the way. Give her credit, there aren't many ladies who could pull of this storyline as well as her...

Keeping a sense of humor about this is different than encouraging it or wanting it to be expanded beyond just a few minutes each week.

The Stratus fans make me laff. Before it started they all defended it and said it was a legit contest and why would the E fix it? Now Trish loses, they say this years was rigged but give no reason. Hypocritical? VERY. Diva marks, who needs 'em!

I'm thinking that this year it's probably rigged to promote Stacey. I mean, her pic is right on the entrance to vote for the BOTY contest. (Random thought, but just add another "O" to the contest initials and you got what it's really about.) Stacey has been beating some of the more competant female wrestlers, most notably Trish and Molly lately in spite of the fact that her primary function is not as a wrestler.

I agree that I would have voted for each of Lita's opponents over her in all of the categories. Stacey vs. Torrie would have been too hard to call since they're both blonde and well, everyone has seen Torrie's hooters and cooter, so that would have added points. Plus, having Lita def. Trish in the round would have eliminated the winner for 3 straight years. Either way, it looks like it's going to be a year of the WWE pushing Stacey down our throats. Oh, joy. **rolls eyes**

Stacy and Lita?? Hmm, NOW I know why Trish won this thing for so many years.
Well, its atleast more believeable than Jackie Gayda and/or Nidia making the finals.
