WrestleMania 28 Predictions: Beth Phoenix and Eve vs Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos

Tonight, it’s the biggest show of the year as WWE presents WrestleMania 28 featuring a Divas tag team match involving Extra host, Maria Menounos. Maria teams with Kelly Kelly to take on Divas Champion Beth Phoenix and Eve. Who will come out on top? The Diva Dirt team weigh in.

- Watch a video hype package for the Divas match

Bobby: Well, I am still a little bummed they didn’t go for someone more prominent in pop culture, or someone who could actually show up and help promote the match, but nonetheless I am thrilled that the Divas do get a WrestleMania match. Not only that, I’m happy that the three actual Divas involved are the three I felt have had the best year in terms of consecutive build and momentum. I’m kind of excited about the match because, while it may just be another tag team match, Beth has proven she can bring out the best in everyone. Kelly has worked wonders with her before, and since this is Mania, they may go for something a little extra. I really don’t want Maria to be involved in the pin if the face team wins, but honestly I’m going to go on a limb and say Beth Phoenix and Eve take the win. Beth needs momentum leading into her next title feud, and a victory at ‘Mania could certainly do it. She did it at BunnyMania the last time they were in Florida, so she can do it again!

Cryssi: This prediction hurts me because the lack of Maria Menunous around to help sorta build this up has really gotten on my nerves. I wasn’t a fan of her involving herself while shes doing Dancing With The Stars and it’s hurt. Kelly, Beth, and Eve have worked all year for this and they absolutely deserve the big stage come Sunday. I want Beth and Eve to win but Kelly Kelly and Maria Menounos will pick up the victory. Faces always reign supreme at WrestleMania.

Katelyn: Despite their current push of bad girl Eve, I think they’ll go for the feel good moment of putting the faces over. Kelly Kelly and Maria Menounos to win.

Melanie: History dictates that celebrities always win at WrestleMania (Snooki last year, Floyd Mayweather, Donald Trump), but I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that tonight may break that streak. They are really behind Eve right now with this new heel gimmick and she’s also the only Diva on the WrestleMania programme booklet. I think it’d do a lot more for her character and for Beth to win this match than it would for Kelly and Maria. Maria hasn’t had any involvement on Raw in the past two weeks to hype this match and after two wins in WWE already, I think she can afford to take a loss even if she is a celebrity. For Maria, I think being part of WrestleMania is enough for her, as judging by her tweets, she is incredibly honored to be part of the show. Does she really need to win as well? I doubt it. I say there’s a way to keep Maria looking strong while giving Eve and Beth their much needed victory. You could have Beth or Eve pin Kelly so as not to make Maria look ‘weak’. You could have her save Kelly from a post-match attack or something, or just have her check on Kelly and raise her hand to get a pop. I say tonight Beth Phoenix and Eve win.

Who do you think will win tonight at WrestleMania?

    Beth and Eve!!!

  • Mr.3D

    I’ve got a prediction for this match: I look into my crystal ball, and I see…a certain British born Miamian making a surprise run-in!!!

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

      Woooohooo! I see that too!

    • JJ

      I agree, would love for her to come back tonight or even Kharma! Either one will be fine with me.

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

        Haha ikr! x #WEWANTLAYLA #WEWANTKHARMA – I think that will be so #AWESOME and I will literally scream “Yes Yes Yes” when AJ eventually turns on Daniel Bryan n cost him his WHC title! Me n my dreams! Hpe dat happens Haha! x

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

    I hpe Beth Phoenix and Eve wins tonite! As much as I want K2 to have her WrestleMania moment, theres no way I want to see Maria pick up a pinfall fluke victory over Beth in any shape or form. If the Face team wins, then I want K2 to get that moment and pin Eve but if the Heel Divas win, then any finishers will be fine to me! Let the BEST TEAM win! #TeamBeve #TeamK2

  • JJ

    I think it is pretty much a given that K2 and Maria will be winning! With Maria being a media darling and current contestant on DWTS, I don’t see WWE letting her lose her match! Hopefully something will happen to cause a run in from Layla or Kharma!!!

    P.S. Totally off topic but Brock Lesnar just re-signed with WWE and I wonder since he is married to the gorgeous Sable if she will come back as well? They should totally have her be his valet and both of them return together!

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

      OMG dat would be so awesome if Sable returns. Id bet she will be in the Hall Of Fame soon n she deserves it along with Trish, Ivory n Lita! I jus hpe we see Layla or Kharma making an appearance tonite!

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

      Woah, I did not see that coming. About brock lol. But I’d love to see sable back. She, imo, is the first diva. I love her.

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

        Sable is the original and first Diva too! I cnt stand it wen Sunny keeps claiming shes the original Diva in every effin’ INTERVIEW where Miss Elizabeth n Sherri Martel surpassed her crazy wrinkled ass PERIOD! Hpe Sable eventually returns and say in her future HOF speech that she’s “The First Diva” to name herself that word back in April 19, 1999! We all knw that Sunny has done a lot as a manager but did she wrestle…. HAHA!

        • Melina&Mickie4ever!

          Sable returning would be nice but dont they have kids ? Who would watch them ?…But I would love for sable to come back she would be perfect for the divas title

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

          “…where Miss Elizabeth n Sherri Martel surpassed her crazy wrinkled ass PERIOD!”

          LMFAOOO! Im done ! Im cant even deal!

          And Mickiefan, Yeah they have kids. I dont really want her to come back and wrestle. Just for some appearences or maybe be brock’s valet, from time to time. But yes, Her + The divas title = perfect match.

      • JJ

        I agree! IMO she is who totally started the Diva era. Yes Sunny was great when she was there and gained alot of mainstream popularity however she didn’t truly accomplish the cross over into mainstream media like Sable did. Sable should have been in the HOF before Sunny was IMO.

        • josh101

          People would consider Sable a huge celebrity at her time she was so popular. And to be honest probably one of the most popular divas of all time.

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

          You two are on point! I dont think there should be a question about who is the first diva. Sable or Sunny? Sable. I remember like last week on a thread, someone said how sunny was the test run & sable was the success story. And thats completly true.

    • JJ

      I’d love Sable to make a few appearances, and I’m pretty sure she will. Nothing substantial, probably just a few appearances in the crowd and backstage. That’s good enough for me! In recent pics she still looks beautiful.
      They do have kids but according to rumours Brock will be on a very light schedule (no house shows and only a few matches) so they could just take the kids with them. Sable had a daughter during her first run as well, as did Terri/Goldust.

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

    Nanananananananana! lmfaoooo That song! :o

    But yeah, my prediction is Eve & Beth. Hopefully layla has some type of role here.

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

      Haha I so agree with u! I would love to see Eve v K2 v Beth for the Divas Title instead but oh well! Apparently K2 is goin 2 debut a new finisher tonite, Eve will be looking so darn SMEXI and Beth will triumph over Maria once n for all! Let the best team win! Also, we get to see The Bellas, AJ, Aksana, Vickie and so more tonight! Cnt wait! :) #WRESTLEMANIAGOESDIVAMANIA – Hpe Layla appears n kicks some major ass!

  • DivaFanForLife

    Well, first off I’m just thrilled there is a match. I meen it may not go down in history as the best build & pulled off match ever but that’s what’s been given to us.
    I would love Eve & Beth to win as I am a @HeelBeliEVEr. Not only that but both deserve it after an amazing 2011/ early 2012. Beth cannot get pinned again by Maria as that would just ruin her Divas Championship reign. Its like saying Kelly,Eve or Tamina cant beat Beth for the title but Maria can ?!?!?!?

    However I do feel as if the face team will score the victory as there is a celeb involved. In a way its a good thing as Kelly will get her ‘Mania moment after all her hard work. But Maria is number 1; in no shape to compete and number 2; I’m sick of WWE thinking that it doesnt matter if a celeb wins. Because trust me & all the other diva supporters, it does. Enjoy Wrestlemania guys

  • Teri

    Cryssi: “Faces always reign supreme at WrestleMania”

    not true.

  • Bethinho

    Ryder will come and distracts Maria while she´s at ringside.he grabs her ass cheeks and yells WWWYKI.Kelly gets angry and kicks him in his private parts but when she returns in the ring is nailed by a clothesline by Beth and after a GS.

    • eveandtrish

      LOL! This would actually be one of the greatest scenarios. Since Zack with do anything for Eve.

    • RayneWoman

      That can happen you know, Ryder distracting Maria. Remember, he still follows Eve around like a lovesick puppy.

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    I’m going with ….Well I really dont care who wins. I just hope they get some decent time for Eve , Beth & Kelly. Hopefully something xciting. Im just happy we got a divas match on the card. *shrugs*Maybe Layla will return that would be nice.

    • shaky209

      Yes I am glad too that they have a Diva’s match on the card.I just want to make sure that it’s not like Maria can beat Beth but KellyKelly Tamina and Eve can’t.That wouldn’t I say look right.I do though have feeling in some way More Diva’s an creative will protect Beth’s Most Dominant Diva gimmick. Yes it wouldn’t hurt Maria and KellYKelly to loose this match.

  • http://Yahoo.com/lilkhris141414@yahoo.com SEXYOFTHESEXIST2011

    i hope maria get’s attacked and can’t compete so layla can come in her place
    *fingers crossed*

  • http://divaderby.net/ DivaDerby

    The positives are that Beth has put on great matches with both Eve & Kelly. They have great chemistry, add onto that that they want to put on a great WM match, and we are likely to have a good match. Maria? Hopefully she’s just in a for a few seconds. She’ll go in do a move, then quickly tag in Kelly.

  • RayneWoman

    WWE’s universal truth : Celebs always win during WM.
    I want to say Beth and Eve. But celebs always reign supreme during WM, not faces, Cryssi.
    Unless a swerve takes place, I dont see any hope for the heel team. So unfortunately, its Kelly and Maria for me.

    • revivingophelia

      Yeah, I’m with you. Celebs always win, so they’ll win again tonight… even if everyone in the arena knows that in an actual fight, Kelly and Maria would get their butts kicked by Eve and Beth.

      I’d love to be wrong about this. I’d LOVE to see Beth and Eve come out with the win, but I just don’t see it happening.

      • mariah.

        The reason I can see it happening is because this isn’t a one off for Maria, unlike past celebrities. She’s wrestled twice before and has a clean pin fall victory over Beth… another win wouldn’t matter much for Maria and the audience because they’ve seen it before. There are other ways to give Maria her moment without having her go over cleanly and I feel like WWE will choose another route this time around since they already gave Maria a win over Beth in the past.

        • revivingophelia

          Don’t get me wrong… I really want you to be right. I really want Beth and Eve to win.

          I just don’t want to get my hopes up about it happening so I won’t be disappointed if it doesn’t.

    • Teri

      “But celebs always reign supreme during WM, not faces, Cryssi.”

      ^ this

  • mariah.

    Beth and Eve will win or hopefully Maria will be replaced. That’s all :)

    • Teri


  • Lanoom

    Anyone who thinks Beth and Eve will win if, Maria actually participates, is deluding themselves.
