Event summary Edit
Beth Pheonix vs Eve Torres Edit
The battle between No. 1 contender to the Divas Championship Eve and The Glamazon, Beth Phoenix spread far beyond the mat – where the two Divas took to Twitter to air their grievances with one another. After the Twitter-based tongue lashing had finally subsided in a hotly-contested battle for the butterfly emblazoned title, Eve fell just short of beating a dominating Beth Phoenix at Vengeance.
Eve pulled out all the stops in hopes of capturing the Divas Championship. Utilizing both her athleticism - reversing the Glam Slam and trying for the pin - and using The Glamazon's own ring gear to tie The Beauty from Buffalo to the ring ropes. However, one dominant Glam Slam later, Eve was unable to net the butterfly.
On SmackDown, Natalya made it clear that Divas Champion Beth Phoenix and herself were not messing around and gave an ominous warning that Eve had made the biggest mistake or her life. The “Sisters of Salvation” held true to their warning, attacking Kelly Kelly before Vengeance, relegating the former Divas Champion unable to accompany her best friend to the ring for one of the biggest matches of Eve’s career.
Now that Beth has taken back two challengers in Eve and Kelly Kelly in her quest for Divas division domination with Natalya – what’s next for the powerful duo? Have The Fabulous Firebird and talented Natalya taken control of the Divas locker room, or is there another Diva waiting in the wings to silence the “Sisters of Destruction”?
