How do you top getting engaged to your sweetheart? Making WWE history in the same week, duh!
Eve Torres became the new Divas Champion tonight at Night of Champions, despite not originally being placed in the scheduled Divas match.
Call it luck (hmm, we doubt it!), but Eve picked up the win after Kaitlyn conspicuously became injured with a sprained ankle backstage. More conspicuously, it was Eve who arrived on the scene first, tending to the #1 Contender for the Divas Title.
In the spirit of Night of Champions, where every title must be defended, SmackDown General Manager Booker T granted Eve a title match against Layla as “bonus” for her good sportsmanship and her work as his assistant in recent weeks. How convenient!
Eve quickly dispatched Layla, the reigning champion, ending her five month reign.
With her victory, Eve becomes the first woman to hold the Divas Championship on three occasions.
