Event summaryEdit

Layla, Kaitlyn & Tamina Snuka vs Eve Torres, Beth Phoenix & Natalya Edit

AJ may be stealing attention and headlines with her eccentric behavior and role as special guest referee in WWE Champion CM Punk’s title defense against Daniel Bryan, but six other Divas made their respective presences felt during the Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

Divas Champion Layla again proved she’s “money” in both singles and tag team competition, as the British-born beauty led Kaitlyn and Tamina Snuka to a thrilling victory over Eve, Natalya & Beth Phoenix.

The impromptu Divas tag team match was an exciting encounter right from the start, with Tamina and Natalya immediately going after each other. When Kaitlyn tagged in for Tamina and quickly hit a backbreaker on Natalya, the former Hart Dynasty member turned to Phoenix. However, a disrespectful slap from Kaitlyn made The Glamazon think twice, and she tagged in Eve.

Eve managed turned the tables on Kaitlyn before The Fabulous Firebird re-entered the ring. However, Kaitlyn managed to escape the powerful Phoenix and get to the outstretched hand of Layla. The Divas Champion hit a series of vicious clotheslines on Phoenix, punctuated by a beautiful springboard crossbody.

All-out chaos then erupted in the ring, with all six Divas going toe-to-toe. One by one, they threw each other from the squared circle, until Tamina nailed Phoenix with a high kick, setting the stage for Layla to land a crushing Lay-Out neckbreaker.

After the pinfall, Layla, Tamina and Kaitlyn celebrated in the ring as their opponents licked their wounds. With the Divas Champion looking as strong as ever, and with dangerous opponents like Eve, Natalya and Phoenix showing once again they are all credible threats, the Divas division appears as exciting as ever.
