WWE has really been amping up Diva storylines on their main roster while tackling lengthy matches on NXT. For the past few weeks Kaitlyn has been feuding with AJ Lee with the pair facing each other in nonsense tag team or singles matches.
A few months ago Kaitlyn actually defended her title against AJ defeating her over on NXT and it looks like with AJ winning a battle royal she has once again become the #1 contender for the Divas Title. In the weeks leading up to Sunday’s Payback, Kaitlyn has been embroiled with this secret admirer whom I guessed would’ve been a new Diva debuting however it was actually revealed on RAW that her admirer was Big E Langston whom is AJ’s “muscle” or bodyguard. We came to realize that AJ was behind the entire thing and used it as a means to embarrass the Divas Champion and then have Langston lay her out.
On this week’s SmackDown, Kaitlyn battles Lithuania’s finest export in Aksana.
Take a look Below:
WOW! Kaitlyn has honestly snapped. I feel that this match on Sunday will be an all out Brawl and I’m happy to say that Kaitlyn might lose her Title this Sunday (I’ve never been a fan of her reign anyway). AJ really played into Kaitlyn’s head and her snapping on SmackDown beating the hell out of Aksana and then slapping the referee was priceless. I feel she will have a meltdown and WWE needs to play onto this to have a new psycho Kaitlyn. We know AJ is off the wall, but with Kaitlyn’s size and strength plus being turned into a psycho she could rival Victoria/Tara in her earlier years.
I loved this segment.
NXT has lately incorporated a “NXT Women’s Championship” to the show and if you were not watching last week then let me recap.
Stephanie McMahon and NXT have announced the NXT Women’s Championship and have also announced a tournament to determine whom will be crowned the first champion. The competitors are Alicia Fox, Bayley, Aksana, Emma, Sasha Banks, Paige, Summer Rae and Tamina Snuka. Last week Paige advanced to the 2nd round by defeating Tamina Snuka while the brackets show that Sasha Banks will face Summer Rae and Emma will face Aksana, but tonight Alicia Fox emerges from her hiatus to participate and battle Bayley.
Take a Look Below:
To be quite honest. I did not really enjoy the match. I felt that NXT took way too long to give Bayley a character as she was just seen here and there being defeated by nearly every Diva on the roster. Now tonight Bayley is known as the “Young and bright eyed Diva” on NXT. She even seems to act like a little girl wearing barretts in her hair and hugging Alicia. I enjoyed Alicia’s dominance and her return, but I ultimately know she will lose to Paige so having her in the tournament was a waste of time. NXT could’ve used this time to debut Charlotte (as Ric Flair’s daughter who plans on becoming the first champion even going as far as attacking every Diva in NXT and then defeating a main roster Diva to solidify her stance in NXT) or Kendall Skye as she could’ve been the new ring announcer who didn’t want that life and wanted to compete, but could’ve lost in the first round.
Like I mentioned before I didn’t really care much for the match. It was blah and Alicia recovered and handled her win flawlessly.
Fantasy Fridays sees the ladies of wrestling against each other in a ‘fantasy’ bout, comparing stats and accomplishments and then you, the visitors of OSD, vote on who you think would win if these girls stepped in the squared circle with each other.
LAST TIME: Emma vs. Jillian
Last Friday saw two multi-talented Divas square off – Songbird Jillian Hall and Dancing Queen Emma! Whether it’s just part of the EMMAlution or not, it was Emma who danced her way to victory with 64% of the vote. Whether you’re a fan of these Divas or not, if they faced off you’d definitely have EMMAtainment guaranteed! Agree, disagree? Send us a tweet or comment below..
Today’s Fantasy Friday bout is a singles match between two tiny female fighters, Sasha Banks and Rosita!
Note: This interview was intended for the first edition of the OSD magazine. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to get the issue up and running – yet – but we didn’t want to hold off publishing this interview we did with Marti Belle way back in April. We’d like to thank Marti again for taking the time out to participate in an interview with us.
If Martibel Payano, better known by her in-ring name Marti Belle, were to describe herself, she’d tell you that she “brings the spitfire attitude” wherever she goes. “I am a sweetheart until you cross me,” she admits, before continuing. “And then it’s all over.”
The “spicy Latina” – her words, not ours, but can you really disagree? – grew up in between the Dominican Republic and New York City, where she was a wrestling fan from young. “I was a big fan of wrestling when I was a kid. I didn’t start learning to speak English until I was about seven, but I could watch wrestling and understand exactly what was happening.” Marti also got into acting from the age of nine and had a passion for dancing and modelling as a teenager.
TNA have released a photoshoot video featuring the latest sizzling summer shoots – some we’ve seen and some unreleased that we assume will be posted soon.
So far, Christy Hemme has been doing an amazing job with directing Knockouts’ photo sessions, such as the absolutely stunning Moulin Rouge inspired Valentine set.
Check out the full video below:
Tamina Snuka suffered a concussion during a Superstars match against Natalya on 3rd June.
WWE confirmed this to a number of sources, including LOP, and mentioned that the injury came after Natalya clotheslined her.
We wish Tamina a really speedy recovery.
