Night of Champions was filled with some surprising moments, and as of today the wrestling forums are still blowing up about everything that happened. We have two new world champs, and still a lot of questions regarding what the heck happened during the HHH-CM Punk main event. 

One of the match outcomes that really sticks out in my mind though is Kelly Kelly's victory over Beth Phoenix, and there's only one question I'd like the ask the WWE about their decision.


Kelly Kelly, for the second PPV in a row, somehow managed to escape the ring alive and with the divas title against The Glamazon. It blows my mind that the WWE chose to go this route and once again screw Beth out of the Divas title, especially in her hometown of Buffalo.

Beth Phoenix and Kelly Kelly are the only two divas generating any interest right now in the WWE, and for them to keep stalling Phoenix's eventual title reign is just plain ridiculous. This is starting to look like a female version of Orton-Christian, only its pretty unbelievable that a force like Phoenix can't defeat the 110 lb Kelly Kelly on a consistent basis. Phoenix is starting to come off as nothing more than a whiny complainer, and that's going to do nothing in the long run but destroy any interest in this feud.

Now, we'll most likely be forced to watch this match yet again, with no real point behind it except for the fact that there really is no other option for Kelly, besides maybe Natalya. I honestly don't see that happening, I have a feeling that we'll see Kelly Kelly vs. Phoenix at least three more times at this rate.

Either way, Phoenix deserves a divas title run, and she deserves to dominate the division for as long as possible. It would make for some great television if the Divas of Doom went on to rule this free-falling division, but instead they'd rather keep the belt around the waist of the Barbie doll. In the process, its been completely ruining the reputation that Eve once had. She's one of the most talented superstars that the WWE has, and she has no business being someone's BFF sidekick.

Kelly Kelly's time as champ has to end soon in order give this division a much needed change. For the first time in a long time, I actually had a minor interest in what was going on in with the divas, but after last night, I guess I found my bathroom break again.
