Event summary Edit
Eve Torres vs Kaitlyn Edit
Kaitlyn survived another pre-match attack Sunday night, but couldn’t weather the ring offensive from Eve, falling to the Divas Champion at Survivor Series in her first one-on-one title opportunity.
Prior to the bout, Kaitlyn was attacked by a blond assailant, much like what happened to The Hybrid Diva at Night of Champions. She was unable to compete that night, giving Eve the opportunity to challenge — and win — the Divas Championship from Layla. Unlike that fateful September night, however, Kaitlyn was able to get the upper hand. While tussling, she removed the blonde’s wig, revealing her attacker to be Aksana.
When the Divas Champion came to check on the challenger, Kaitlyn instantly saw through Eve’s disingenuous display of concern. In return, she shoved the champion to the ground, giving Eve a taste of her own medicine.
The Hybrid Diva walked to the ring with purpose, tackling Eve to the mat as soon as the bell rang and unloading a barrage of punches on the champion. Eve tried to escape the onslaught, only for Kaitlyn to force her back into the squared circle.
Eventually, though, the Divas Champion regained control of the bout, using her Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu know-how to wear down the champion. Eve attempted to abscond from the match once more, but Kaitlyn went back on the offensive. The Divas Champion begged for forgiveness for Aksana’s sneak attack, but got a slap in the face in return.
Kaitlyn looked to have the victory in hand after a devastating fireman’s carry gutbuster, but Eve showed great resilience, kicking out at the referee’s two-count. The Divas Champion played a game of cat-and-mouse with the challenger, which ended with Eve landing a vicious neckbreaker to retain her title. As Kaitlyn slowly recovered inside the ring, the champion made her way up the ramp, waving insincerely to the outraged crowd with every step.
