Instead of defending her Diva’s Championship, Beth Phoenix will be teaming up with Eve to take on Kelly Kelly and TV personality Maria Menounos.
Is this match a mistake?
Aside from some free publicity on Extra, what exactly is the point of this match? WrestleMania is the grandest pay-per-view of them all, and Beth Phoenix will not even be defending her title.
Instead, she will be teaming up with Eve, who has basically slotted into Natalya’s old role, to face the gorgeous, but atrocious, Kelly Kelly and a woman who is just a pretty face on TV?
If you want to know why the Diva’s division is continually bashed by fans, then look no further than this match. It is a small microcosm to everything that is wrong with the divas in general.
Joanne Cena, I mean Kelly Kelly, has never put on a great match in her career. Yet, she continuously gets pushed for absolutely no reason. Beth Phoenix, on the other hand, is a fantastic wrestler and is reduced to fighting subpar talent and barely gets any screen time despite being the champion.
Anyone else see something wrong here?
If the WWE wants us to take the divas serious then there has to be a reason for us to watch. Start signing better talent so we can enjoy entertaining matches like we once did with competitors such as Victoria, Trish Stratus and Lita. They should also train women like Kelly Kelly until she is capable of putting on a decent match too.
It is embarrassing when the WWE values a model like Kelly Kelly over a great performer like Beth Phoenix. This match at WrestleMania smells like the beginning of another Kelly Kelly run.
