WWE: The 5 Divas Most Likely to Defeat Beth Phoenix for the Divas Championship

The last time the Divas Championship changed hands was on Oct. 2, 2011, when Beth Phoenix defeated then-champ Kelly Kelly at Hell in a Cell, after two previous unsuccessful pay-per-view bouts.

Over the last six months, Phoenix has defeated Eve Torres, Kelly and Tamina Snuka in small feuds and has been making claims that she'll be the Divas Champion until she decides to retire, since she has no real competition for the title.

Though arguably one of the most talented female wrestlers in the history of the company, Phoenix's reign has been a quiet one due in part to the entire Divas roster being placed on the back burner.

In fact, the Divas Championship isn't even on the line at WrestleMania; instead, a tag match with Phoenix and Torres taking on Kelly and TV personality Maria Menounos has been set.

Many are predicting Menounos to land the pin on Phoenix at WrestleMania, and if that happens, Phoenix's fallibility as a champion will become evident to the rest of the Divas roster who currently fear her.

When the WWE turns its attentions back to the Divas again, the pieces are in place for a number of talented women to make a run for Phoenix's title before she unseats Maryse as the longest reigning Divas champion in mid-May (after 216 days).

The race to dethrone Phoenix could make for a potentially exciting storyline over the next few months and the five Divas featured here seem the most likely to become the next Divas Champion.
