Diva Problems: Charlotte's Spear

There have been complaints that aspect's of Charlotte's move-set have been awkward. Brief discussion on the cause in the comments during the past week made me want to go and examine the cause in more detail, Charlotte's spear in particular.

First, let's look at how other wrestlers perform the spear/gore:

Rhyno

Edge

Goldberg (I think)

Lashley

Reigns

Notice that they target the sternum, with their arms right under the armpits of the receiving man. Lashley even jumps up to hit Big Show in the right spot.

Now look at Charlotte.

She's targeting the abdomen above the navel. Her arms are wrapping around her opponent well below the armpits.

Now look at Kaitlyn's spear.

It's in the same spot as Charlotte's. Could they be teaching the women to target a different place than the men? Why would they...

oh, right.

As we saw on Total Divas, Eva Marie's leaking implants forced her to endure a painful and time-consuming medical recovery. The modification is understandable. I feel comfortable saying that repeated impacts from approximately 145 lbs of charging Nature Girl were not included in the design specs.

That, ladies and gentlemen is a diva problem.
