25 Diva battle royal announcement

At today's WWE Wrestlemania 25 Press Conference, WWE announced some of the former WWE Divas who would be participating in the 25-woman battle royal set to occur at WM:

As a surprise to nobody, Tammy "Sunny" Sytch will be appearing; so will Torrie Wilson. It was also announced that the recently-retired Victoria, as well as Molly Holly would be returning. It will be nice to see these women back in the ring, as Victoria and Molly were both very instrumental in the late-1990s renaissance of the WWE women's division, and often underappreciated by WWE brass in favour of 'hotter' Divas (those who could wrestle, such as Sable and Trish Stratus, and those who couldn't, such as Stacy Keibler and Torrie Wilson).

If the rumours are true about women's legend Wendy Richter appearing after years of bad blood with the WWE, as well as Trish Stratus, this should be one heckuva battle royal, especially since many of the current Divas (Mickie James, Beth Phoenix, Maryse, Michelle McCool, Melina, Natalya Neidhart) can wrestle as well.

I was disappointed at the lack of a one-on-one women's championship match, and I still see plenty of opportunity for this match to go cheesecake heavy, but there should be some decent wrestling action involved, too.
