Who had the best 2014? It’s a simple question, really, but how do you quantify what makes a Superstar or Diva’s year the best? Certainly, title wins and five-star matches are a good start. Memorable moments and game-changing victories should also be taken into consideration. Still, at the end of the day, this is a rather subjective debate, but one that is definitely worth having. WWE.com’s editors take their picks and make their arguments for which member of the WWE roster had the greatest year.
From newbie NXT Diva to NXT Women’s Champion, Charlotte’s WWE career skyrocketed in 2014. After besting Emma and Alexa Bliss in the NXT Women’s Championship Tournament, the daughter of 16-time World Champion Ric Flair defeated Hart family Diva Natalya for the NXT Women’s Title at NXT TakeOver in one of the most memorable and competitive Divas matches of all time. Since her victory in May, Charlotte has defended the NXT Women’s Championship against her former BFFs, Summer Rae and Sasha Banks, as well as Bayley.
Who will dare to challenge this self-proclaimed “genetically superior athlete” in 2015? The future looks bright for NXT’s most dominant and charismatic Diva. It’s surely only a matter of time before Charlotte shakes things up in WWE’s Divas division. – KARA MEDALIS
