Finally after a long wait Divas’ Title match for No Way Out has been announced..a rematch from last month’s Over the Limit, Divas Champion Layla will defend her title against Beth Phoenix this Sunday at No Way Out.
The latest match comes after Beth pinned Layla in a mixed tag team match last night on Raw.
Beth hit the Glam Slam on Layla to score a victory for herself and Ricardo Rodriguez. Layla teamed with US Champion, Santino.
In a unique encounter, AJ found herself in the middle of the action between the three Superstars who will battle in a Triple Threat Match at No Way Out. In a stunning move, she threw herself at Kane during the bout and planted long, sensual kiss on The Big Red Monster. After the salacious maneuver, Punk took down Bryan with a flying elbow. After this latest twist, what will happen Sunday?
Current WWE Divas champion Layla El was interviewed by WWE.com after his successful defense at Over The Limit vs. Beth Phoenix. During the interview, Layla discusses finally beating Beth in conclusive fashion.
“We all know Beth, ‘The Glamazon’, but of course I can shut her up. Of course. The first thing we’re ever going to hear is, ‘Oh, you’re lucky. Blah, blah blah.’ I’m actually really curious to hear what she’s going to say after this match tonight,” Layla expressed.
“But, I proved a point tonight,” Layla continued. “I’m not saying it was easy. It wasn’t. I went out there, I fought a good fight and I did my best. I think she was a little cheap for going for the knee. I just recovered from a knee injury and she’s been through that. So, you’d think that should would attack the knee.
WWE has announced via its website that Divas Champion Layla will defend the belt against Beth Phoenix, who just a couple of weeks ago held the title.
Beth never did cash in her rematch against Nikki Bella, the Diva she lost the belt to, so it certainly makes sense for her to cash in her shot against the new champion.
The storyline between the pair started via WWE.com this past weekend with Beth commenting on Layla’s return. She said: “I’m going to bust her other knee, and make sure that she goes away and never comes back. She has no idea what she has gotten herself into.”
Layla made her return after nearly year of absence at Extreme Rules, winning the Divas Title in her first match back.
Layla was out of action with a torn ACL and MCL. Coincidentally, a year before Layla’s injury, Beth suffered an ACL tear, also.
