After what appeared to be a legitimate ankle injury to Beth Phoenix, Nikki Bella pulled off an upset victory over the “Glamazon” to become the new Divas champion.
Does this help the Divas division at all?
With so many reports coming out that the Bella twins were going to leave the WWE, this championship victory for Nikki was unexpected. The audience actually seemed legitimately excited that Nikki pulled off the upset. I am curious if many other fans enjoyed this shakeup in the Divas division.
I know a lot of fans do not believe there is place for the Bella’s, but I am not one of them. I am in complete agreement that the division is woefully lacking talented female wrestlers. Nevertheless, the Bella’s are very appealing and I think they should be dedicated to promos and advertising as opposed to wrestling.
Honestly, the Bella’s are not great performers but they are also not the worst on the roster. Aside from Natalya and Beth Phoenix, there really is not anyone on the roster who is championship material, so it is hard to complain about Nikki Bella winning.
In fact, I may even call it an exciting moment of Raw tonight considering no one expected it. It was terrible to see Beth lose the title now since she has been absent for so long, but if she is not going to defend then give it to someone else.
I doubt anyone would mind seeing the Bella’s on TV more anyway—especially Nikki!
