Divas Title Match Added to ‘No Way Out’

In a rematch from last month’s Over the Limit pay per view, Divas Champion Layla will defend her title against Beth Phoenix this Sunday at No Way Out.

The latest match comes after Beth pinned Layla in a mixed tag team match last night on Raw.

Beth hit the Glam Slam on Layla to score a victory for herself and Ricardo Rodriguez. Layla teamed with US Champion, Santino.

    Was waiting for this to be announced – pleased to see they will get a rematch and hopefully be able to equal if not better their outing from Over The Limit – anyone else think Kharma may make her presence felt at Now Way Out? Love Layla
    *Here’s hoping*

      “…anyone else think Kharma may make her presence felt at Now Way Out?”


      • ricky_says_hi

        hmm Layla’s already pinned Beth clean. perhaps Kharma will intefere at the and destroy both of them? if not i hope Layla wins with the Face Lift, that’s a move that could believably put someone like Beth down for three

      • Matthew

        Why not?
        There’s every chance..

        • Lanoom

          Because that would be interesting.

          No, seriously. If Kharma were going to return, there would be a bigger deal being made about this match.

          I don’t even mean ominous Kharma promos like we get before she debuted, I mean that Layla and Beth would’ve been more seen and active and possibly have an actual build for this besides “Well we need a piss break and these are the only two competent women we’ve bothered with for months and one of them has the belt, instant title match.”

          They would not bring Kharma back in a segment that they themselves have set-up nobody to care for, even us, the fans who actually look forward to watching women’s matches.

  • Lanoom


    On a serious note, should be an alright match.

  • No Holds Barred

    um isn’t NWO supposed to have matches with the stipulation of no escape?? (cage, lumberjack, strap) – let’s hope for at least strap

  • http://twitter.com/jeremysalvatico jeremycanrana

    at least the match on raw was some sort of an effort from the writers … maybe they thought “well we can’t just add a diva’s match with Bety..and Lola… wait what are their names again ? whatever ..with two girls that we haven’t shown in a while …ah let’s do some stupid goofy match or whatever on raw ..”
    …in a way (I don’t know what way) we may believe that they -sort of- cared to build something …

    Should be a good match..i just hope layla doesn’t lose the title its abit soon for it to be back on beth…..

  • DAFereldan91

    My intuition tells me that Beth will somehow regain the championship.

  • shameronstar

    Even though the match will be good I can’t help but feel that the only reason it’s Beth vs Layla is because Beth is the only usable heel by default because Natalya and Maxine are fodder and Rosa and Aksana are valets! WE NEED NEW TOP HEEL DIVAS for Layla to feud with!

  • B1G_FaN

    Here’s hoping Kharma returns during this match! I don’t care who she attacks, I just want to see someone get an implant buster!!!! It can be Michael Cole for all I care! lol

  • xxQOXxx

    Come On Kharma!

  • Jhonmarco

    Should be good.
    I doubt Kharma will return before July 23 though.
    Death @ the same awkward pic being used for NWO.
    They look ridiculous :'(

  • nathan3050

    Does anyone else get the feeling kharma isn’t coming back? Ever!

  • lucky1now

    happy to hear there will be a match im sure they can pull off something good
    te writers showing a lil something now 1 tag match win gets you a shot…..i miss the days of every week a back and forth battle leading to a heated match

  • SweeneyTodd

    Glam Slam on RAW = Layla wins Sunday. Thinking all is better when Kharma returns is a fallacy. Then we have months with Kharma Squash Matches like Ryback yet.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/dsanchez96?feature=mhum sanchezdiego96

    Yay for round two! I say Layla retains. The girl hasn’t done anything with her run. And on the topic of Kharma, I think she should return on RAW’s 1000th episode. It’ll be another great RAW moment and it’s supposed to be treated like a ppv.

  • jayjayholler

    Eckkkk not again. I AM SOOOO BORED. Can Maxine have a title match or Natalya? From one extreme to the other I know, BUT THIS IS SO PREDICTABLE AND BORRRRING!

  • French.One

    Did some of you guy saw the interview of an ex wwe assistant writer who told one or two things about divas storylines ?

    • shameronstar

      I did, it was a pretty interesting read consider everything he talked about whether everything he said was true or not, but in regards to the divas, he said that there are times when Vince is interested in the tag team division or divas division or ect. and when they’re not on his mind they get depushed, and if that’s true I think it’s ridiculous because all aspects of the wwe from main event to mid card to tag team wrestling to divas wrestling to etc. should all get properly showcased every week because it gives a little of everything to everyone which will actually get more people tuning in because there’s a variety in what’s presented.

      • redsandman99

        That’s the way it should be but given the way WWE goes, I think that former assistant is unfortunately correct about what they said.

    • Jhonmarco

      Yeah, not shocking, but nice to have some confirmation on things.

      • norisclouds

        I thought the amusing thing about it was that we all figured this was going on based upon what we saw on television, and he just confirmed everything we assumed. =/

  • redsandman99

    These two NEED some kind of segment on Smackdown to help build towards the match…or at least help give Layla some kind of reaction. She has the charisma and decent enough mic skills to be an entertaining character and Beth can hold her own when she’s not being forced to portray a jealous mean girl type. Hell, a backstage fight would be perfect. Beth could try to bully Layla, Layla stands up to her and violence ensues. Know it won’t happen but I can dream.

  • Ouellet


  • Mr. Asstastic

    And I thought the Brooke and Gail’s match at Slammiversary felt last minute . . .

    • Lanoom

      …What? Think what you will of the actual match and results, but TNA built that up for weeks.

      • Mr. Asstastic

        They didn’t make Brooke the #1 contender until three days before the show.

        • Lanoom

          But she was feuding with Gail well before then. They could not shut up about Brooke having Gail’s number. The only reason she wasn’t officially number 1 contender already was because Gail stole a win and she had to fight for it again.

          The angle was going on for longer than the period Brooke was No. 1 contender by a healthy amount.

  • Bethinho

    i really don´t know why Beth is still a contender,because if she lost to Nikki to avid a future confrontation between her and Kharma with Beth as champ….
    and with Beth´s win on Raw most likely Layla will win sunday,which will not bring anything positive in all this.

    • Lanoom

      Beth’s still the top contender because there’s nobody else.

      Bellas’ gone.
      Kelly temporarily gone/on her way out?
      Alicia Fox stuck to JTG on NXT.
      Natalya is a whole sack of nothing after they turned her into a joke.
      AJ’s as close to being in the WWE Championship picture as any Diva is going to get.
      Kaitlyn? Nope.
      Maxine? Nope.

      • Marshy

        And you also have Naomi who is dancing with Brodius Clay.

        • Lanoom

          I was going to list both Naomia dn Cameron but until they actually wrestle on WWE TV, they’re non-wrestlers.

          Rememebr, NXT3 was Internet.

  • unscripted & flawless

    At this point, I look more forward to Diva-Dirt’s “Today In History” posts than I do the actual posts about things currently happening with the Divas. I’ll just live in the past and pretend this dim dim present and even darker future isn’t happening.

  • Marshy

    Just like last night that it was Vader Time Time Time,but I think that at No Way Out or at July 23 that it should be Kharma Time Time Time.I bet that if ECW were to make a comeback that Beth Phoenix,Kharma,Natalya,Naomi, and various of women that I feel that can kick ass and they don’t have look like models or supermodels doing it and if it should include Sara Del Rey that she should be included as well Alpha Female..

  • DarknessRuler

    Can you people just stop with the “Will Kharma return?? Will Kharma return??”


    She most likely will come on the three hour RAW that’s supposed to be treated as a PPV.

    • Jhonmarco


      • redsandman99

        I have to agree. I would love for her to return sooner rather than later, but I could totally see it being saved for the 1,000th episode of Raw. And hell, they could just go right into building something up for her for Summerslam.

        • http://ashmultimedia.wordpress.com melon2617

          Meh. It’s frustrating I know, but there’s nothing wrong with wanting her to come back. She’s been training for her return and she did have some kind of storyline involvement with Beth and Layla (Beth rallied the Divas against her and Layla was one of the Divas attacked by Kharma), so having her attack them wouldn’t be completely out of the realm of possibility.

          I loves me my Beth but the woman is so stale at this point that I think pulling her off camera for a much needed break (with her rumoured boyfriend/my pretend husband Edge) so she can be repackaged as dominant again wouldn’t be bad. Layla is one of the few Divas who knows how to sell desperation and fear and would be a good starting feud for Kharma. Having demented little AJ go against Kharma a few months from now would be a lot of fun too.

  • Bhentoooot

    again? this division really need a life and move on to next competitor or feud. but im hoping this will be better

  • RyRy21

    WWE needs to just take the belt off layla her return has gone no where(not her fault) and beth needs to take a break.
    i think alica needs to somehow take the belt off layla and heres way
    layla can turn heel and feud with her
    then alica can move on to maxine since they have history which will help build her up
    then move on to what i think should be the main feud anyways alica and natty have natty win and by this time kelly(top face) beth(top heel) and kharma will all be back then they can go whatever way they want kelly can take it off natty beth can be face an feud or kharma an take out natty leading to beth feud w/e they want oh and in all that idk where layla fits in lol
