What's up, Bleachers?!
This past Monday on RAW, Michael Cole struck yet again.
During a non-title match between Maryse and Divas champion Eve Torres, he once again started shooting off at the lip, rudely interrupting the action.
The action actually made me wonder if a WWE writer, or even Vince McMahon himself, had seen some of the articles published up here on Bleacher Report lately!
However, this time there was a slight difference during this match and the one between Nikki Bella and the Divas champion from a week and a half earlier—Eve actually reacted to Cole's rudeness and, needless to say, she was not one bit pleased.
After some brief distractions, the champ finished Maryse off with a standing moonsault, and then the fun really began—or so I thought.
Eve marched directly over to Cole's little rat cage—ahem, the glass structure in which he's been sitting by the announce table the past week-and-a-half to shield himself from a would-be attack from his WrestleMania opponent Jerry "The King" Lawler.
She tried desperately to get at him to hit him, but sadly, Cole had a big, burly guy serving as his personal bodyguard.
Ooh... Michael Cole needs a big man protecting him from one of the divas! This definitely cemented him as being an even bigger wussy than I originally thought.
Although Eve only managed to just barely swat at him, this seems to be a small glimmer of hope for the divas. Is it at all possible that we might just witness a diva (or five) take revenge on Cole come WrestleMania?
Of course, it's a given that he'll get his just desserts courtesy of Jerry and special referee Stone Cold Steve Austin. But could we maybe expect to see Eve, at least, appear after they're done with him and smack him around a bit more?
Even sweeter would be if she shows up with the rest of the babyface divas to do it.
As a matter of fact, the only thing that would be better would be if Cole pulls this type of stunt again the following night on RAW and Awesome Kong finally debuts and finishes the job Eve started
Although, I honestly don't see that happening, because, most likely, Cole wouldn't even appear that night after getting the beatdown of a lifetime at WrestleMania 27.
So, what do you guys think? Is this a positive step ahead for the divas?
Hopefully it is, but I just hope Cole interrupting the women's matches is finally over and done with once and for all.
