M.V.D. – Most Valuable Divas – Week of December 15, 2013

MVDOWW Women’s Wrestling Columnist Eric Holt chooses his M.V.D.- Most Valuable Diva(s) of the week, based on television matches, promos, and/ or segments.

This week, I had a bit of a hard time choosing this week’s Most Valuable Diva. So many girls from WWE and TNA impressed me this week in their own way. With that said, this week’s edition of Most Valuable Diva will feature many WWE Divas and TNA Knockouts that stood out to me:

AJ Lee successfully defended her Divas Championship against Natalya at TLC. AJ looked as though her reign as Divas Champion was going to end after Natalya escaped out of the Black Widow and attempted to lock in the Sharpshooter. However, WWE’s resident crazy chick managed to get Natalya with a roll up and successfully defend her title. AJ’s had a long reign as Divas Champions, and she’s coming closer and closer to becoming the longest reigning Divas Champion in history.

On this week’s Main Event, AJ Lee put her Divas Championship on the line against Natalya. Natalya earned this championship opportunity after defeating AJ in tag action a couple weeks ago. There was great back and forth action between both women throughout the match. Natalya showed a lot of aggression, and AJ pulled out a couple of flashy moves, which she rarely does as a heel. The ending saw AJ getting disqualified after Tamina superkicked Natalya. Natalya won the match, but AJ retained the Divas Championship despite being DQed. After the match, AJ locked in the Black Widow on Natalya, making Natalya scream and cry in pain.

Review of the November 13, 2013 edition of WWE Main Event

Main Event 2WWE Divas Title Match: Natalya defeated AJ Lee (champion) by DQ, Tamina Snuka interfered and AJ ran away through the crowd with the title.

A better than standard match that saw Tamina make the save. This does two things, one it makes it build more storyline and they can have a rematch most likely at Suvior Series PPV. Two it gives creditability for Natalya that she can beat the champion. Brie Bella had a bit of that early in her feud but not anymore. Natalya is a serious contender for the belt. I wish they would have built this match up more instead of going straight to it. Main Event has lost all the special element of the show.

Justin Gabriel defeated Tyson Kidd

Two smaller guys going at it in an action paces match. It is surprising that Kidd lost since he has been and still is in a program with Fandango. Gabriel who don’t see a lot get a win over kidd. With that being said if you like smaller guys wrestle with a quicker pace than this is your match.

3MB defeated R-Truth, Darren Young and Titus O’Neil

Another surprise win from a group who is a jobber for most tag teams. With Truth going over on Ryback it’s interesting to see that he lost. Does WWE management not think that their WWE universe not watch main event or they just don’t care what common sense is? A filler and throw away match no doubt.

This aside from the divas title feels like a superstar’s edition. The divas match isn’t enough to keep my interest up in this show at all.

Thanks for reading!

GUEST COLUMN: ‘How AJ, Kaitlyn, and the fans have brought the WWE Divas division back from the brink’ by Sean Linhares

Editor’s note: The following article was written by Sean Linhares and originally appeared on wrestleenigma.com:

In business, the customer is king. It’s a simple idea of Capitalism, if the customer states that they want something from a business, that business gives it to the consumer.

WWE is, of course, a business, and so it operates under those same rules. While McDonalds may have to give in to their customers’ demands for more French fries, WWE must do the same with their on screen product. If the fans don’t like someone or something in WWE, it is immediately dropped, as it’s simply bad for business to have someone on your program that is universally disliked.

Later in the night, Kaitlyn teamed up with The Funkadactyls to face AJ and The Bellas. Kaitlyn won the match for her team after AJ was unsuccessful with tagging in one of The Bellas.

Twenty-eight years after the inaugural event took place at Madison Square Garden, WrestleMania returns to the New York Metro area this Sunday.

But for nobody in WWE is WrestleMania 29 more of a homecoming than for AJ Lee.

“It’s possibly the most surreal feeling that I’ve ever experienced,” Lee, 26, said about being part of WrestleMania at MetLife Stadium — just 15 minutes away from the Union City, N.J., neighborhood where she grew up. “It makes you feel like, ‘Hey, I actually made it.’ ”
