RAW 9/3/12: Eve continues to shove herself into the title picture

7 Sep

WWE is actually pushing a Diva feud… but at this point it’s somewhat confusing. What are they doing with Eve and Natalya? This week in action, The assistant Eve will be taking on the pretty face Kaitlyn. The Divas Champion Layla is also making an appearance with an “LOL” dress. “LOL” means ‘Lots of Layla’ thanks to her fans of course, who wrote her on Twitter suggestion the definition. Oh, and Miz is also on commentary due to Lawler being attacked before the show…

Somewhat sloppy but still enjoyable match. Eve as a heel is so much better than a face. It feels like she just belongs in the ring, trash-talking and throwing down her opponents. Layla and Miz arguing back and forth on commentary was somewhat distracting but he put some of the Divas over so I’m not complaining. Eve actually picks up the victory over the #1 contender this time and not with a roll-up! WHOOO! Eve raises Kaitlyn’s hand after the match with a huge pearly-white smile on her face as Kaitlyn is in confusion. Eve then walks right over to Layla and hands her hand out to the champion for a shake. Layla is hesitant but Miz is shouting from commentary at her to shake her hand. Layla shakes her hand and the segment is pretty much over with.

AJ made several appearances throughout the show but the only one that counts is her mental breakdown following Vickie Guerrero confronting her. It seems as if the GM has gone a little loco herself… maybe she should be seeking the anger managment classes, irony right?! Vickie calls out AJ and slaps her. This makes AJ bring out her inner physcho by grabbing a chair and slamming it to the ground while Guerrero is out of the ring. If i was Vickie, I wouldn’t mess with that little ball of fire. She might have something up her sleeve for next week. I guess this will leave us all on the edge of our seats.

RAW 8/27/12: Layla lays the bombshell on Natalya

31 Aug

Natalya finally makes her way back to our screens and we are excited! She will be taking on the Divas Champion, Layla. Of course with WWE being as sexist as they are, sends Vickie Guerrero out so tell the crowd that she has an announcement, and to make the match quick. She stands on the apron while the match happens.

The champion is all about having fun in the ring with her “outstanding” dance moves, and even butts Natalya out of the ring. Natalya then takes advantage when Layla tries to slide out of the ring to get Natalya and lands herself inside the ring apron. To end of the some-what good match, (but every match Natalya is in we should cherish) Nattie goes for the sharpshooter but Layla blocks. Natalya then continues to beat down the champion until Layla uses her new finishing kick, ‘bombshell’ to pick up the victory.

Vickie Guerrero gets into the ring now while Layla is celebrating her victory of the dungeon Diva and basically tells her to get out. Lay slowly gets out of the ring while staring Vickie down. Guerrero gets on the mic to yell about the stipulation of the match that GM AJ Lee put Dolph Ziggler in last week. This leads the GM to come out, and pounce on the cougar to start a short-lived catfight.

Two WWE Diva Roster Swaps

24 Aug

WWE has updated their website to reflect the recent storylines that have been taking place on the current brands. AJ Lee who was originally on the Smackdown! brand, has now been added to the RAW brand now that she has taken over the GM position. Also changing brands is Smackdown GM Booker T’s assistant Eve Torres, who is now being featured on the Smackdown brand on the official website of WWE.

 

Summerslam 2012

22 Aug

Before this highly anticipated PPV gets started, WWE kicked off with a hot championship match which got everyone on their feet. Hardly do we ssee the title switch hands on the pre-show but this match seemed different. Antonio Cesaro was able to defeated Santino with help from a distraction which was made by his girlfriend Aksana, to become the new United States Champion. After the match, Cesaro and Aksana touted about their victory and shared a long kiss to seal their happiness and new milestone.

The hottest PPV of them all has been hyped for weeks now, and it’s officially time to get the party started! Now Divas match was sadly advertised, and we weren’t treated to a last minute match… BUT we were lucky enough to see all the Divas… well except one, dance. Yup.

Like usual, the Divas are used for eye candy when celebrities perform, etc. on their shows. This one was no different as Kevin Rudolf sings Summerslam’s official theme song live for the crowd to get up and get loose. Funny enough, Rudolf doesn’t even have his guitar plugged in but he is still trying to get down… weirdness. The Divas enter the arena… but it looks as if one is missing, and that is Beth Phoenix.

Alicia Fox, Rosa Mendes, The Divas Champion Layla, The Funkadactyls, Kelly Kelly, Eve, Aksana, Natalya, Kaitlyn and Tamina all stand in a perfect line to get down and lip sync to the artists’ song. Why wasn’t Beth able to join this exciting adventure? Was she not dancing material?… or a better question: Was she even invited?…Well, Natalya, Kaitlyn, and Tamina try their best to break out some dance moves, while Eve, Layla and Funkadatyls are naturals at groovin’. Mendes is far to the left doing her normal salsa routine while adding some hand gestures, and Miss Foxy was hardly shown. WWE’s camera pans around to multiple people in the crowd that are letting their inner dancer fly out, which only made this segment better.

Also, Eve Torres was shown backstage with Teddy Long for a few split seconds before the camera moved over to CM Punk who walked into the RAW General Manager AJ Lee’s office. AJ also made an appearance when the triple threat match between John Cena, CM Punk and Big Show ended with both Cena and Punk picking up the win. She immediately restarted the match in hopes of her former lover Punk losing his belt. She didn’t find any luck as the champion remained victorious.

RAW 8/13/12: Diva’s tag team action featuring the Divas Champion!

16 Aug

Kaitlyn and JTG are shown talking backstage. JTG is complaining how there is a three hour raw, THREE hours and he can’t even get a match. The RAW GM AJ Lee then appears and asks him if he has a problem with her. She tells him to go to the ring because she’s going to find him an opponent. AJ asks her former chickbuster partner is she finds her unstable. Kaitlyn replies that she can find many words to describe her and unstable isn’t one. AJ is happy until she thinks it over and now is confused at the remark. I loved how the chickbusters were used in a short segment together. It bothers me that they got rid of them together when they were really over with the fans and worked really well together, but this segment made me happy since I was a huge fan of them together, as well as JTG finally getting a match!

Also on RAW we are treated to a Divas match. Finally the Divas are getting some time, and it’s exciting! The Divas Champion Layla will be teaming up with Kaitlyn to take on Beth Phoenix (yes, they finally found her.) and Eve Torres. This match is most likely to further the storyline between Eve and Kaitlyn for the assistant spot but nonetheless i’m satisfied as their all pretty solid workers. The match definately wasn’t the best with most botches coming from the champion herself. It was a little sloppy but I still enjoyed it because lets face the facts: 1)There’s rarely any Divas matches 2) The champion is finally on and 3) It was longer than most usual matches that the women get. The match could’ve ended on a better note but Kaitlyn won with  roll-up on Beth Phoenix… in case you didn’t realize this already but I hate roll-ups… especially since the Divas do them to often.

Also happening before the Divas match was yet another segment between CM Punk and Eve. Not sure if these random segments are leading to a possible storyline or they just think that they work well together… which is probably true. Eve walks up while CM Punk is stretching. Eve congratulates him on the new CM Punk. He responds by saying that he’s never changed and Eve disagrees. And to end off all of this Diva excitement, AJ, Layla and Kaitlyn were all shown backstage with a few other NXT Roster Members looking at the damage that Brock Lesnar caused on the car following his attack on HBK in the parking lot.

Also on top of this perfect night, All 4 ladies featured in the match were able to trend Worldwide on Twitter INCLUDING the trend “Divas”. Yes, WWE we do still care. now keep giving us Diva matches that are long and enjoyable. Thanks.

Smackdown 8/10/12: Battle to become the assistant

11 Aug

Eve Torres has made it clear to new Smackdown GM Booker T that she wants a job. Even though Mr. GM says there is “no job openings” (even after giving one to Teddy) Eve is still determined to get a spot, showing up in Booker’s office yet again. Eve once again asks him if there are any spots opened… Booker once again says no. Kaitlyn walks into the office and asks for a job as his assistant and he gives the spot to her. Eve threatens Booker T, telling him that she is going to tell the board and take legal action. This leads to Booker somewhat switching his decision. He sets a match up for next week (YES! YES! YES!) between the two Divas (Kaitlyn and Eve Torres) and the lady who is victorious gets the spot as his assistant.

I personally loved Eve when she was working for John Laurinaitis, but Kaitlyn is rarely seen and it’s something different so if it was up to me I would definately give the spot to her.

Oh, I almost forgot… guess who showed up to Smackdown this week? None other than the only Diva that is usually shown *sigh* AJ Lee. She ordered Daniel Bryan to shake Kane’s hand. However, after he tried to do what she ordered, Kane attacked him, leaving Bryan to run into the crowd. This left the RAW GM, AJ in laughter as she looked on at the top of the ramp.

RAW 7/30/12: AJ’s GM reign off to a “hot” start

2 Aug

Only Diva on yet again is none other than AJ, but no worries, you can find the other Divas on Tout.com (CHEAP PLUG)  during RAW. #WeWantDivas. AJ’s GM reign looks to be a “hot” one because on her first day on the job, the arena caught on fire, literally…. Enough of the cheesy stuff though, AJ Lee, comes out at the beginning of the show in her new business-like suit and issues her first match of the night, and it’s an exciting one… yawns. The match for the 1 millionth time, Big Show vs John Cena.

Daniel Bryan now greets the GM in her office, he yells at her about their wedding that took place last week and she tells him to shut up. “I’m not your bride, I’m your boss”. Daaannngggg. Told. She tells him she saw the men in the white coats that looked to be from the mental hospital. Moving on… she makes a match between him and Sheamus, and NO! NO! NO! It’s not for the championship. AJ makes her third appearance during the match she scheduled, which turned out to be a street fight due to “hashtags” used on Twitter. She tells Bryan that he’s the one that needs help and to have a safe work enviornment, he needs to have a mental evaluation. And to the end show, AJ comes out again and sets up another match, this time for the upcoming PPV. CM Punk is defending his title against both Big Show and John Cena… the joy. -_-
