Beth Phoenix and Natalya Want Divas Ladder Match

Divas Champion Beth Phoenix and BFF Natalya have stated that they want to compete in the first ever Divas ladder match, reports LordsofPain.net.

Speaking to the February 2012 issue of WWE Magazine, the third-generation Diva says: “I want to compete in the first-ever Diva Ladder Match. Beth and I think it would be amazing, and I believe we could really pull it off.”

Meanwhile, the reigning Divas Champ, who competed in a ladder match in OVW with Katie Lea (now Winter in TNA), says: “I actually like to consider myself a pioneer for the ladies’ ladder match because if you check out Ladder Matches 2: Crash and Burn [WWE DVD], it actually features my ladder match from Louisville, Kentucky, in OVW.”

“I have been campaigning for WWE to let me compete in one and have even volunteered to put my Divas Championship on the line in it against absolutely anybody. I have the experience and truly believe the bar could be raised with that bout. There is no doubt in my mind that it would be the most spectacular Divas match of all-time.”

Watch Beth in the first ever women’s ladder match in WWE below:

    It would be awesome if all the divas competed in this match and if Layla returned and won the title.

    • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 stephmc

      i agree!

      • jen07201

        Does Layla have a return day set?

        • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 stephmc

          erm there hasnt been a return date but i think it could be at the elimination chamber or the royal rumble (definetely before wrestlemania). i actually have no idea but apparently layla’s going to train back into fcw for the time being (only to perfect her moves and get back into that fighting shape) and then return to the wwe in which the wwe creative already planned what her next fued is. im excited to see how layla returns, hope no one forgot about her – she deserves a good pop after being injured for so many months! i think tamina should face beth at royal rumble but their fued cnt be that late.

    • Warrior_King

      I don’t see how that would be a smart idea at all. That’s just begging for somebody to die. Two Divas in the match, preferably Beth & Natalya, would be even greater.

      • jen07201

        True but it would really help maybe raise peoples opinion of the diva division.

  • javiousmckenzie

    Child boo Beth need to be campaigning to get her ass back on TV and Natalya need to be campaigning to get a win #noshade

    • Warrior_King

      LMFAO. It’s the truth though!

    • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 stephmc

      lol so true xD

    • mariah.

      LMFAO #Truth

  • shameronstar

    OMG! I ALWAYS wanted to see a divas’ ladder match. Not even the golden generation of divas had a ladder match I believe. If they did this I guarantee that the wwe divas division would not only gain a LOT of credibility but the wwe universe would definitely get behind it. The only question who should Beth face in a history making match like this? Should she face Natalya in a blow off match if the wwe decides to have Beth and Natalya feud? Or made the match should be more similar to the vain of a money in the bank match where multiple divas are all competing to get the diva’s championship. I can see it now: Beth Phoenix vs Natalya vs Tamina vs Layla vs Alicia Fox vs Kelly Kelly vs Eve in a diva’s ladder match for the divas championship! Although, I don’t think Kelly could survive the bumps she would have to take in a match like that:)

    • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 stephmc

      i agree, this would be amazing – i would have this match placed at wrestlemania (but vince wouldnt want the girls to steal cena and rock’s spotlight) but i want this to be booked at money in the bank because that ppv was the best this year and it even topped survivor series too. i think kelly kelly can take good bumps like the time she got hit to the barricade countless times but this is just me asking. eve would take a glamslam from the top rope, wow – it would be amazing if eve took the glamslam from the ladder to a table, but i wouldnt want eve to literally die! i have good faith in this, it would be a complete turn off if wwe doesnt recommend this. it seems like beth had given this idea long time before, maybe she wanted to compete against mickie, melina and michelle in a ladders match – i would see that! :)

      • TheBeautifulPeople.

        Since the divas divison is a mess alittle right now, if they could bring back the Womens tag team titles, before the ladder match that would be awesome. If layla returned and put the Divas championship on the line it would pick up little pieces for the Divison. When someone new has the title they can promo and new fued with Layla and her opponent. This would be a good time for Niaomi and Ariana to go for the women’s tag team titles and win them.

      • jonboi

        im not kelly kellys biggest fan but i think that girl can take a good bump so she could hold her own in a ladders match @THEBEAUTIFULPEOPLE thats true but we know that aint gona happen the wwe dont care about the great wrestling divas that they have. I think im giving up on the divas for a while and keep fingers crossed that they are giving the time they need to build up the division because one ladder match does not make a division lol

    • mariah.

      I think Kelly Kelly would be all for taking nasty bumps. People rarely give her credit, but she never backs down from a sick spot. She’s gotten her ass handed to her from Michelle McCool and Beth Phoenix on many occasions. One that sticks out in my mind is when Kelly Kelly got spun around and thrown head first into the barricade by Michelle McCrazy Bitch lol. You heard that hit too. I thought Kelly Kelly was gonna have a concussion! Eve takes the crown for biggest testicles though… that Super Glam Slam will NEVER be erased from my mind.

      • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 stephmc

        @Mariah. I so agree wiv u! Now i wanna see a money in the bank ladder divas match so badly and a elimination chamber divas match! maybe the first ever Divas royal rumble! :) lol

        • mariah.

          I remember this time last year there was rumored to be talk about a Divas Elimination Chamber match, pitched by none other than Stephanie McMahon. At the time it could have been mind-blowing. You had Beth Phoenix, Natalya, Michelle McCool, Melina, Gail Kim, Eve and even Kelly Kelly… any six of them could have put on a match to remember.

        • mariah.

          Ughh, I meant a Divas Money in the Bank. Sorry about that lol. This thing really needs an edit feature.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        I agree with MARIAH. To this day, I still remember 19 (or 20 ?) year old kelly getting hit with a kendo stick by sandman. This girl has some serious guts.

        • mariah.

          I forgot that moment! Probably because I was kind of off on WWE at that time. Kelly Kelly really does have serious guts.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Haha, thats probably the kelly moment I will remember forever. The girl wasnt even wrestling, yet she took that hit. Gutsy indeed.

        • WWEStarInTraining

          Dont forget falling face first on the ground when she faced Victoria at ECW

      • TheBeautifulPeople.

        Sooo true. I think people underestimate Kelly because she’s overrated. If they turned Kelly heel she would be a decent heel. Attacking everyone and if they turned Eve heel too that would be great.

      • TibarnEl

        Absolutely, Mariah! Watch some of Kelly and Eve’s matches, and don’t tell me they’ve never been able to take a bump. Kelly’s smack into the barricade I’ll never forget.

    • jonboi

      the divas division is NOT going to improve with one ladders match have you forgotten the tables match? a week after that we were back to 3 min matches. What is needed is creative to take the time to build the divas up as characters and longer matches different divas getting a push getting in on the main event or even backstage segaments thats whats going to help the division not 1 ladder match without a build up.As we all know the wwe will never do it theyve gave up on the divas come on if the champ is having her first match back on superstars and its a VERY short match then that should be a big enuff sign to us diva fans. Sorry but its true i have watched the divas for 13 15 yrs and this is like going back to the early to mid 90s when we were lucky to get a divas match once a month. And that is a HUGE shame for such great talent in the roster

  • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 stephmc

    this is a dream match i have waited to see, so far we have seen an epic, brutal matches in the WWE such as :

    TLC: Lay-Cool against Beth phoenix & Natalya – 1st ever tables match
    Extreme Rules: Melina vs eth phoenix – 1st ever I Quit match
    Raw: Lita vs. Victoria – 1st ever Divas steel cage match
    Survivor Series: Trish Stratus vs. Victoria – Hardcore Rules Match
    and more…..

    TNA Knockouts are granted to have these awesome long matches with hardcore rules, and they earn their respect which what the current divas should do but instead compete in 2 min matches. I really like the fact that Beth and Nattie have approached the idea and Eve once said in her AskEve video blog on youtube, that she really wants to compete in the first ever Ladders match. I really think that this would be a good opportunity to save the Divas Division before the amazing Kharma returns and it would make the Divas create an endorse for themselves as well as making WWE women’s wrestling watchable again. The WWE Divas will get their respect.

    If this match happens, and hopefully it does – i really think beth, natalya, aj, naomi, layla, tamina and possibly eve to compete in this. they have good potential and put on exciting matches! Wow i never knew Katie Lea faced Beth in a ladders match – it was really intense and both of these amazing wrestlers have good chemisty – if only they fueded over the womens title with mickie james and melina in 2008 (that would be epic). i think that if this ladder match happens, then wwe would get the past divas who has experience like molly holly, lita, madusa, jacqueline (jackie moore) and trish stratus.

    • JamieKym

      The first ever female hardcore match was between Tori and Ivory on RAW

      • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 stephmc

        @Jamiekym I actually knew that already, thnx 4 tellin me! I knw someone was goin to say that but if u read what I wrote, i didn’t write 1st ever to “Survivor Series: Trish Stratus vs. Victoria – Hardcore Rules Match.” and the hardcor match between Tori and Ivory was okay but wasnt as spectacular as the one between Trish and Victoria. Just sayin! :)

        • norisclouds

          Yea, but should still respect that history. Just like Lita’s street fight for the women’s title in ’00 is never mentioned doesn’t mean we should gloss over it.

  • jen07201

    I would like for it to be Beth vs Natalya vs Tamina vs either Alicia or Kaitlyn

    • Raekon

      The 4 power filled ones would do.
      Beth, Natalya, Tamina and Kaitlyn.

      Alicia wouldn’t last long when it comes to very hard bumps while all these 4 can take it alone through the fact that they are very athletic and have the body mass and strength to support these.

      • jen07201

        I think Kaitlyn would do just fine in a ladder match and I think she deserves a push from NXT.

  • mariah.

    At least the article in WWE Magazine basically proves that they are still together since everything in that magazine is kayfabe! Anyways, I’d die if I saw the Divas compete in a ladder match, especially if it involved any combination of Beth Phoenix, Natalya, Eve, Kharma or Layla. I seriously hope Beth and Natalya continue to push for this and pitch it to Stephanie McMahon and the creative team because that’s how shit gets done…. ask Michelle McCool and Trish Stratus.

    • mariah.

      Oh I forgot A.J! A.J in a ladder match would be a dream! Girl knows how to sell like a motherf-cker and can take some nasty bumps.

      • jen07201

        I wonder how AJ will change since WWE has said AJ will not be the same as she was before.

        • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 stephmc

          i think aj could turn heel since we have seen a new change in daniel bryan. but she kinda suits as a face but her heel promos in fcw were wicked! :)

        • gl83

          But, there has been no sign of that kind of change with AJ. I mean within weeks of winning the title we saw Bryan become more arrogant, whereas AJ still remains the same. Heck we saw her act exasperated at Bryan when he accused Big Show of intimidating her. If anything, I see her as another victim of Bryan’s manipulations, which includes Big Show, Mark Henry and every single Smackdown lumberjack this past week.

          Besides, that excerpt from that article was questioning AJ’s physical condition, not her mental state(remember a few months ago they explained John Morrison’s losing streak as a result of returning too soon from his neck injury, so it’s like the same scenario). In a recent exclusive on WWE.com, it was revealed by the interviewer as an aside that AJ was still hospitalized after getting run over by the Big Show last week.

  • jen07201

    A dream match of mine that will never happen Beth Phoenix vs Natalya vs Kharma vs Mickie James vs Melina in a No DQ Match for the title.

  • http://www.gailkimsource.com Danni

    Nattie vs Beth, sure, they have experience and skill, but for the love of god, don’t put any of the other girls in the match [if it ever happens] if Jillian’s comments on how WWE trains the girls is anything to go by [they cradle them like children, rather then push them hard].
    AJ might be a good option but she’s so thin, I’m not sure her body could take it.

    • Goodvibes

      THIS^ hell yes no way the ‘regular’ divas should be in this match.

  • javiousmckenzie

    Im sorry but the only divas i tthink could pull it off is Beth Natalya AJ and Naomi i would loved if FCW had one between Aj and Naomi

  • Williambitious

    I would love the match to be Beth Phoenix vs Eve. I’d love to watch Eve do a moonsault off the latter or Beth do a GlamSlam off the ladder. I think it would be groundbreaking and the crowd would be behind it 100%. The WWE Universe only sees the Divas in the manner which the creative team portrays them. If they actually put some time and effort into this, it can help the Divas’ credibility. I have my fingers crossed.

    • Eve4Life

      They Would Be Exciting! :)

  • Raekon

    If they do it the “WWE way”, it will turn out to be a 3 minutes ladder match with a few lackluster moves and a finisher involved. -.-

    Should Vince and Johnny throw away all their “little boy” insecurities for once, we might get something decent to good instead.

    • LadyGoDiva

      I’ve seen ladder matches and they take longer then 3 minutes with everyone attacking each other with ladders,etc.

  • Eve4Life

    They Should Have Eve vs. Beth Phoenix for Divas Championship Ladder Match. This Is How The End Would Go:
    *Beth & Eve On The Top & Beth Goes For The Glam Slam, But Eve Knocks Beth All The Way Down & Eve Moonsaults Beth From The Top! Now That Would Be Intense!! :)

    • jen07201

      I think a Glam Slam from the top of the ladder would be better.

  • shaky209

    If Vince can make money out of it and it’s booked right I do see that being a possiblity. Like Beth says shes got the exprience to do it along with Natalya.But I’d have to put Beth over Natalya.

  • Jordan

    How about the Divas have a worthwhile feud LONG before we begin talking about a ladder match? I mean, the last feud that actually had time put into it and fire behind it with the fans was Candice Michelle vs Beth in what? 2007? (Yes, I am disregarding the Mickie “Piggie” James vs. Laycool storyline)

    Let’s get back to actually having a memorable division because at this point, they’re at their all time low and come on, just reading this, we’re all thinking the same thing — “not gonna happen.”

    If we want to see women wrestling in ladder matches, we’re gonna be looking at TNA or indies for the action.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/DivasManiaHD xILOVENATTIEx

    I agree, only if it involves Natalya and Beth, I wouldn’t mind see Eve, Tamina, Layla or AJ thrown into the mix as well

  • WWFoverWWE

    Well we all want things….lifes tough. Beth should be thinking about getting more than 2 minutes every week, not a ladder match.

  • MickieJamesFan07

    I remember Eve saying in one of her ask videos that she too would love to have a divas ladder match I would love to see one too.I would like to have it be Eve vs Beth vs Natalya vs Kaitlyn vs Layla vs Tamina.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

    Beth vs Natalya vs Eve vs AJ vs Layla vs Tamina in a ladder match for the WWE Divas Championship. WOW that looks sooo good on paper :D. It would honestly be a dream come true.

    • ricky_says_hi

      i’d nix Tamina since she’s still so green and add in Kelly since she does a good amount of high spots

      • JamieKym

        There’s a reason why People say Tamina and not Kelly Kelly.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        By the time this happens, if it happens, tamina will probably be a pro. lmaooo Jk. But throw kelly or tamina or foxxy ,doesnt really matter to me. I wanna see it happen :D

  • Jake

    I think all the Divas would be willing to take part in a ladder match. Not just the ones that came from the indys. Like people stated above, some these girls have taken sick bumps before.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/DivasManiaHD xILOVENATTIEx

    I remember Tiffany said in an interview that she loved taking bumps, and I’m sure she’s not the only one

    • nitesaver

      See also said that she wanted to continue to wrestle post WWE…

      • mariah.

        I see what you did here ;)

  • nitesaver

    Never happening not even worth discussing

  • LadyGoDiva

    I have always wanted to see the WWE give us a Divas Ladder Match and I’ve seen plenty other women do ladder matches in TNA,WSU,etc. And I want to see a MiTB Divas Ladder match this year.

    But I think if the WWE is willing to do anything risky in the women’s division they should start taking time and so that they have potential. I really hate that we never saw a ladder match in the Golden Era : (

  • http://www.diva-dirt.com candice7000

    I would love to see a divas ladder match. I want to see Beth put the title on the line against Eve in a ladder match. Or a fatal 4 way ladder match with Beth vs Eve vs Natalya vs Tamina.

  • Glen

    Why do I feel like if this happened, the ladders would somehow be pink?

    Divas in a ladder match!!?? Hahaha I needed a good laugh xD who do they think they are, indy women or TNA Knockouts!!

    • Lily

      Well, Natalya & Beth are indy women :P

      • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

        beths already been in one ladder match…so all wwe would have to do is put one of tv & beth would be in two….

    • mariah.

      Haha, really funny because the most prominent and show stealing TNA Knockouts used to be Divas…

      Yep, I went there.

      • WWFoverWWE

        I think he’s talking about the current divas, the ones that can’t work. Beth and Natalya shouldn’t have a big problem with a ladder match, but it won’t be easy for them for sure.

        • mariah.

          But to be fair, who are we to judge who can work from who can’t when everyone knows how limited the divas are. The Knockouts and Indy girls are given the avenue to show what they can do, but just because WWE treats their women like shit, doesn’t mean they are lesser of athletes. I’ll even go out on a limb and say if girls like Natalya and Beth were not at all limited they could probably out work 90% of the Knockouts roster. Bold statement, but I stand by it.

      • Jhonmarco

        Mariah. preach!

    • Jhonmarco

      That’s a discusting attitude. And sorry to break it to you, but the Knockouts/Indy women aren’t only allowed to have ladder matches. I mean Trish/Victoria have been in hardcore matches, who do they think they are? Seriously ignorant comment.

      • mariah.

        I agree!

      • LayTorres

        I remember Knocouts having ladder matches actually. Remember Sojourner Bolt vs Taylor Wilde and Gail Kim vs Roxxi? But the divas are actually capable of having ladder matches, just give em a chance peeps.

        • http://www.tpwprowrestling.freeforums.org Juan

          I stand by what I said!! The days of Victoria/Trish/Lita are over!! This is a new crop of women and honestly they’re horrible in comparison to the previous. I’m sure Beth and Natalya can go in a ladder match but none of the other women would be able to without botching, hell are they even strong enough to carry a ladder? (Layla is an exception)

          @Mariah and I stand by my bold statement deal with it!!! You apparently see potential in many of the current divas, I (live Vince and co as well as many wrestling fans) see none! My opinion and I’m entitled to it whether you agree with it or not.

        • Jhonmarco

          It’s funny, they haven’t been given enough time in the ring & as characters for anyone to make a formed opinion on them. The only divas who recently have botched are Alicia & Kelly.

        • mariah.

          @Juan: Well your opinion sucks. Stay ignorant.
