Naomi fills in for Kaitlyn…..

At last nights houseshow fans reported that Kaitlyn was unable to wrestle due to traveling problems. 1/2 of the Funkadactyls Naomi filled in to wrestle Natalya.

The win came when the other half of the Funkadactyls Cameron distracted Natalya which allowed Naomi to get the win.

A fan in attendance who sent in the results said it was probably one of the best Diva matchs they’ve seen all year (their opinion) and Naomi brought a lot of athleticism to the match.

Wedding Impossible Recap: { Meet the Irvines }

The wedding between Gail Kim and Robert Irvine aired August 18th on the Food Network Channel.

The first half of the episode showed TNA Knockout Gail Kim and Chef Robert Irvine talking about how they met on the WWE edition of Resturant Impossible. If you don’t remember WWE invaded Resurant Impossible one year bringing in Santino Marella, The Miz and Gail Kim to help cook for an important WWE event.

In the commentary parts Gail said Robert was going to do all the planning so that she can relax before the wedding, and he is used to all the stress.

Throughout the episode, it showed Robert going through a series of preperations for the wedding. Gail felt since she didn’t have to help plan the wedding, she could at least make a wedding party.

During the wedding party, Gail invited tons of their close friends and family to a suprise party for Robert. Once it was time for her big reveal of the night, she told Robert to turn around – only to reveal his sister who he hasn’t seen in over 10 years. Robert started to cry right away out of shear happiness, Gail on the other hand was pleased that she proved him wrong and was able to suprise him.

At one point Gail Kim was showed at the Impact Zone talking to Christy Hemme about how calm she is heading into her wedding day.

WEDDING DAY!! Gail was shown getting pictures taken in her wedding dresses, when Roberts’ daughters walk in. Gail hands them both a gift – that reveals matching 3 heart necklaces that she says represents them (that they are 2 hearts and she is hooked in the middle). The girls put on the necklaces and it is time for the wedding of the century….literally it seemed like it.

Throughout the wedding week we saw mini clips of TNA Knockout Tara and Christy Hemme – WWE Divas Natalya, Beth Phoenix (not seen on camera but was there) and Alicia Fox. I personally wish they would have show Gail interacting with her wrestling friends more while Robert was planning the wedding.

A horse and carriage…. yes everyone there was one of those. Robert said he wanted to make the wedding perfect, so he ordered a horse and carriage to take Gail to the wedding site. Once Gail got out she walked with her mother to the groom.

After exchanging their vows, Roberts daughters got up and sang a little song that once again brought Robert to tears.

Onto the wedding reception, which once again was out of the world – huge room filled with their closest friends and family – dangling lights etc. The food on the menu was everything from sushi, filled chips, cupcakes …. you name it, it was probably there. The show ended with everyone dancing the night away.

BREAKING NEWS: Sofia Cortez released from WWE…

Sofia Cortez shocked the Twitter world when she posted the following tweet: “I, as well, have been released by WWE. Sorry my #Soljas….”. This send out mixed emotions from the WWE Universe – anger, saddness and most fans became frantic.

 

Sofia became a star on the indy scene but shot to stardom when she appeared on WWE Tough Enough (as Ivelisse Velvez). Despite Velez being eliminated, she was signed to a WWE contract – soon debuting to FCW tv.

 

Recently Cortez wrestled on WWE NXT against Paige, Natalya and in an upcoming episode Tamina Snuka.

 

No matter where Sofia goes next one thing is forsure, she will shine bright and succeed. I, as well, as rest of her fans hope that she will return to the WWE where she belongs soon enough!

 

Gail Kim’s wedding to air…..

The wedding between Gail Kim and Chef Robert Irvine will be airing on August 18th at 10pm.

It will show the preperation of the wedding – in which Irvine said he planned the entire thing, and Kim knew nothing.

Recently the Wedding between Irvine and Kim was featured in the Food Network Magazine (see left), which is no suprise because Irvine hosts many shows on the network.

Notable guests at the wedding were WWE Diva Alicia Fox (also Natalya and Beth Phoenix may have been guests) and TNA Knockout Tara (as well as multiple former Divas).

It is being called Wedding Impossible!

Divas segments CUT from broadcasts ???

Superstars broadcast on WWE.com was suppose to feature Divas Champion Layla vs Natalya. With fans super pumped about their Champion and Divas in general being featured, they were ready to tune in…. only to be dissapointed. The Divas match was cut from the stream, leaving Diva fan’s matchless this past week.

 

Then if your a Rosa Mendes or Prime Time Player fan you were super stoked to find out that their was a backstage segment. Where Rosa’s photoshoot was interupted by the PTP’s – who attempted their own photoshoot.

When Diva fans tuned into Smackdown on SYFY…. they were once again dissapointed, as this segment was cut from broadcast as well.

BUT WWE added the cut Smackdown segment to WWE.com as an Exclusive video.

 

> This is not the first time in the past weeks Divas have been cut, last weeks Superstars which featured Divas Champion Layla and US Champion Santino Marella vs Aksana and Antonio Cesaro was cut.  Also a rumored Kelly Kelly segment (not taped) was cut from the RAW 1000 broadcast schedule. The past week on WWE programming NO Divas had aired matches.

 

 

Top 11: PPV matchs of 2011

So theres been a lot of great Divas matches at ppvs…. BUT heres my top 11 of 2011 🙂

image #11 – It pains me to put such a ppv as Wrestlemania dead last…. but if you remember Snooki, Trish Stratus and John Morrison defeating LayCool and Ziggler you’d put it last as well. There were so many possible matchs but, WWE decided to once again drop all of that and place a celebrity in there. Michelle ended up taking a ‘Snooki splash’ & the match ended.

image #10 – TLC, there was no Divas match scheduled but we were all blessed with an impromtu Beth Phoenix vs Kelly Kelly for the Divas Championship. Kelly hit a Molly-Go-Round tribute for Molly Holly off the top rope but eventually was planted face first with the Glamslam. Beth Phoenix retained her Divas Championship.

image #9 – Over The Limit, Brie Bella vs Kelly Kelly for the Divas Championship. Twin magic once again prevailed as Nikki traded out and hit the Bella Buster for the win. Brie Bella retained her Divas Championship.

image #8 – Summerslam, The biggest party of the summer showed Kelly Kelly vs Beth Phoenix. This was the first of their many ppv battles in 2011. Beth went in as the odds on favorite but, Kelly was able to counter that with a rollup. Kelly Kelly retained her Divas Championship.

image #7 – Money in the Bank, Kelly Kelly vs Brie Bella. The newly crowned champion Kelly had to defend her title soon after she won it on a special ‘Power to the People RAW’. Nikki and Brie attempted twin magic but, it did not work as planned. Kelly Kelly retained her Divas Championship.

image #6 – Night of Champions, Beth Phoenix vs Kelly Kelly. When you hear New York & Beth Phoenix together you assume the obvious she was the odds on favorite to win. Lets go buffalo and Beth Phoenix chants rung throughout the arena. The standout moment in this match, Beth Phoenix did a top rope superplex… something that many Divas have not attempted. Kelly Kelly was able to once again rollup Phoenix and retain her Divas Championship.

image #5 Royal Rumble, a fatal 4 way for the Divas Championship- the reigning champion Natalya, LayCool and Eve Torres. If you wanted hard hitting action this was the ppv for you, it had everything from moonsaults to double sharpshooters. Contriversy happend when both Eve and Michelle had 3 counts on opposite sides of the ring, the ref who was facing Torres said she won. Michelle was not happy about it….well neither was Layla and Natalya (Eve was a added entant). Eve became the new Divas Champion.

image #4 Vengence, Beth Phoenix vs Eve Torres. After Beth defeated Kelly on multiple occasions, Eve decided to step up and brought the fight to Beth. Countering Glamslam after Glamslam, Eve was able to stick Beth in a triangle choke which brough the champ to her knees. One mistaken Moonsault cost Eve the match as Beth was able to pick her up, and plant her on the mat. Beth Pheonix retained her Divas Championship.

image #3 H.ll in a Cell, Kelly Kelly vs Beth Pheonix. This was Beth’s final shot at Kelly Kelly’s championship and she worked hard for it. Kelly was able to take advantage multiple times throughout, but it all came crashing down with one big Glamslam. Beth Phoenix became the new Divas Champion.

image #2 Survivor Series, Eve Torres vs Beth Phoenix in a lumber jill match. I honestly think this is a tie for the top spot, this match had everything – interaction with the lumberjills, power moves and submissions. The standout moment for this match was when Beth Pheonix climbed to the top of the ropes and planted a super Glamslam, the Divas and the crowd were left in shock and awe. Beth Pheonix retained her Divas Championship.

AND WHAT IS THE #1 MATCH OF 2011….. DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!

image #1 Extreme Rules, Layla vs Michelle McCool. This match is in the top spot for multiple reasons – it was a loser leaves WWE match and NO DQ. For multiple weeks prior to Extreme Rules, WWE showed LayCool spliting up – fighting, arguing, costing matchs. Each Diva kicked out of finisher after finisher, the crowd was into this feud from the fallout (Smackdown before ppv). During this match Michelle already had a injury to her foot, and Layla suffured a torn ACL/MCL. Layla ended up picking up the victory via rollup, but the emotion that spilled out of each Diva following the bell sound was something that hasn’t been matched yet. Michelle McCool’s final WWE match as a competing WWE Diva. Kharma’s music sounds and her she comes for her debut, laying out McCool with the Implant Buster. Extreme Rules wins the 2011 ppv lineup in my eyes.

WWE offers ‘long deal’ to Kelly Kelly…?

 It is being rumored that WWE has offered Kelly Kelly (Barbie Blank) a long term contract. Ever since Kelly ranked on the Maxim ‘Hot 100’ last year, and ranked even higher this year she has been a hot item for everyone. It is said WWE feels Kelly is their most marketable Diva and wants to ‘lock up’ this deal fast.

It should also be noted rumors that Kelly Kelly’s agency has been looking for reality and scripted shows under her real name Barbie Blank.
