Hello again, Bleachers.
Welcome to another edition of Real Talk!
There are six days left until the extravaganza know as WrestleMania XXVII. There's less than a week before we see Triple challenge the streak, John Cena trying to steal the spotlight from WWE Champion The Miz and Jerry "The King" Lawler dishing out punishment on Michael Cole. As great as it all sounds, there is still one important question: where is the divas championship match?
Now, I don't know about you, but the last few months have been horrible for the divas division which seemed to come back to life back in November when Natalya defeated LayCool to win the divas title at last.
Not only that, Beth "The Glamazon" Phoenix made her long awaited and much needed return after months of recovering from an injury to her ACL joint. I was so happy. Don't misunderstand me here, because even though I do love Michelle McCool and Layla, my favorite divas are Beth Phoenix and Melina. Since the latter was out of the title picture I really needed the former to return to action A.S.A.P!
I had it all figured out too.
Natalya and Beth were to deal with LayCool for a while, take care of unfinished business and then get back to what matters, which was battling each other and thus restore prestige to the divas division whose rich history should never be overlooked.
Do you want a Divas championship match at WrestleMania XXVII?
I was wrong.
Natalya and Phoenix took care of business alright and not only that, WWE had just signed a deal with mega-diva Awesome Kong at last. Things were looking up until the Royal Rumble this past January. Fatal four-way match between Natalya, LayCool and get this...Eve Torres...EVE TORRES!!
Eve won! She won, I say!
What was she doing there? How was she even a factor in the divas title contention? If anything it should have been Melina or better yet Beth Phoenix instead. With Awesome Kong in the company, Gail Kim was an even better choice than Eve since the two had an incredible rivalry back in TNA.
Now, I do not put down our Divas Champion. I do feel that we have now been sent back. It's like two steps forward and three steps back.
At WrestleMania there is but one divas match: John Morrison teams with super ring goddess Trish Stratus and... Snooki to take on Dolph Ziggler and LayCool, who are still together may I add. Talk about a case of Debbie Downer! It is not enough that six days left and no title match, but to replace a legit WWE diva with Snooki is a slap in the face.
Last Monday, while Michael Cole was rudely interrupting a match between Eve and Maryse, mon amour et ma chérie, the champion lost her cool and was going to unleash the beast on Cole. Perhaps that was a sign that people and the divas are fed up with the current state of the division. Maybe Michael Cole was pointing out a fact that it is kind of a joke right now. I hate to admit it but they may be right.
Who should Eve Torres defend her title against?
I am still praying the WWE will come to their senses and add a title match this Sunday. They deserve it. They are beautiful and talented and it would be a waste not to give them their due.
I'd place an order or prediction (which ever you like best) Divas Champion Eve Torres vs. Gail Kim.
Winner: Gail Kim (new Divas Champion)
Enter Awesome or Amazing Kong! The crowd goes nuts, Gail Kim can't believe it and Kong destroys them both.
Enter Beth Phoenix and Natalya to make the save. Kong takes out Natalya but Beth manages to plant one on Kong and leave them in a majestic face-off.
Now that's real talk!
The rest, to be continued...
