Diva Search begins tonight on RAW
WWE.com has been camped out backstage at the Tyson Events Center, the home for tonight's RAW, for all the latest breaking news and developments involving this year's $250,000 Diva Search Contest. Tonight, each hopeful will have their one and only chance to make a lasting first impression on the fans, who hold the power to place them into the ranks of the sexiest women on television—the WWE Divas.
All eight Diva Search contestant finalists have arrived in Sioux City, and along with looking as gorgeous as ever, it's obvious the excitement and nervousness of opening night has been on all of their minds. Each beauty understands how meticulous WWE fans are about their Divas, and all eight are anxious to prove they deserve this opportunity.
