Female Wrestling - The FCW Divas

Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) is the "training ground" for the WWE Superstars.
You may remember it's former incarnation, Championship Wrestling from Florida from "back in the day".

FCW may just be a developmental territory, but I've been watching some of the female wrestling matches from there, and I have to say, some of these wrestlers are pretty impressive, maybe even out-performing some of the Diva's on Raw and SmackDown!

I really wish they took more of their ring talent from the Indy wrestling promotions (like TNA has a habit of doing with SHIMMER), but as I said, from what I have seen, they have made some really good choices.
Yes...for once I am actually praising WWE.

So here are some of the women wrestlers currently wrestling for FCW, and waiting to move up to the WWE...
AJ Lee - FCW

AJ Lee was born April Jeanette on March 19, 1987 in Union City, New Jersey and was trained by Jay Lethal, Mo Sexton and Azrieal.

Jemma Palmer - WWE
Jemma Palmer
