    I wish it was Nattie vs Rosa just them

    Every time I read “Hornswoggle vs….” I already know who won.

  • WWENattiefan

    Tamina defeated Layla
    error in the spoiler, i guess they copied the wrong part.

  • LightsOut

    Wow, Natalya wrestling in 2 matches and winning them? Are the bookers drunk or something? lol

    • marcum1234

      She only beat Alicia Fox and Rosa.

      • LightsOut

        Exactly, for someone who has been on a losing streak, winning twice on the same night (even for different shows) is something to be surprisded about. lol

        • puppies

          Natalya hasn’t been on a losing streak. She’s won 2/3 of the matches she’s recently been in, with the loss being the TLC battle royal.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    super happy Tamina got the win, hopefully, they start to build her up again like this time last year again :)

  • shameronstar

    Funny how Natalya only seems to win when she’s face, and Tamina vs Layla is new. I think they can build up Tamina to be a good go to heel for a filler fued or an alternative to Eve! All this action reminds me that I miss the weekly Superstars divas matches, but I guess with all the releases in the past 2 years or so there isn’t enough variety to do that which is why I’m hopeful for 2013 because Paige and a couple of other girls from nxt will add quite a bit of quality and depth to the diva’s division:)

  • redsandman99

    With how few matches there are on this show, hopefully both matches get a good amount of time.

  • shameronstar

    Alicia vs Natalya will actually be the 1st ever Saturday morning slam divas match! This should be interesting considering this show is rated g, moves to the head and neck aren’t allowed, and this show is on the same block as Power Rangers, DBKai, Yugioh, and a Marvel and DC comic based cartoons. Hopefully, we see the first ever divas match on Main Event soon!

    • TheGamergirl22


      Natalya vs Naomi in a 18 minute match

  • Getdownwithachola

    Wow I never thought in my life WWE would book Tamina over Layla.

  • charovnica

    Nattie wins? Thought I wouldn’t see that ever again. Though probably the girls didn’t have much ring time and it was mostly goofy Hornswoggle. Nattie needs a better gimick.She has a natutal better gimick. She’s a hart.

  • DJ8946

    I lie the fact that Nattie & Tamina are winning but WWE having Tamina winning out of nowhere on Smackdown is a signal for a push. Ok so then you have 4 divas heading towards WM AJ, Eve, Kaitlyn & Tamina. WWE you better not book Eve & Tamina vs AJ & Kaitlyn. I will be find if they have a 4-Way but otherwise leave Tamina out until later.

    • DJ8946


  • Clarke

    Alicia vs Natasha was taped for Saturday Morning Slam, which tbh I don’t like, moves aimed at the head/neck aren’t allowed, so no discus clothesline or somersault leg drop

    • Clarke

      Natalya. Damn autocorrect!

      • TheGamergirl22

        There needs to be an edit option

  • Clarke

    Oh, and there were only 5 matches on the smackdown card, so hopefully that means they will get time

  • Simply Flawless

    I just see this as the beginning of the end for Layla. She’ll be the new Victoria now. Guess WWE gave her, her ‘well done for the past 6 years of hard work and dedication’ push and now they’re ready to have her as the jobber. Funny enough Layla is one of their best divas on the roster, in ring, looks, character, and in everything else she is at the top and now she’s going to be stuck being a jobber, terrible. They should involve her in a major storyline with one of the over male superstars instead of completely focusing on AJ

    • DJ8946

      Who has she jobbed to? She jobbed to Eve a little but other than that who? Losing 1 match to someone doesn’t mean you’re jobbing to them.

      • SweeneyTodd

        Kaitlyn in under a minute. I agree with Simply Flawless. I see a bad year for Layla coming. It’s typical wwe after a title run. Same thing with Maryse, Alicia Fox, Natalya & at the end Beth Phoenix. After the title run random jobber.

    • TheGamergirl22

      Until she gets the Nattie treatment in 2011, where Aksana pinned her in 5 seconds then you can say she’s jobbing.

      • Simply Flawless

        *’I just see this as the beginning of the end’

    • divaindemise

      I feared the worst for Layla a month into her title run, to be honest. She was a victim of bad timing. Went out with injury too soon after the momentum of retiring Michelle; came back when the fans were desperate to see Kharma return instead. Sadly it seemed to ensure that Layla was written off rather soon.

      Her ring work has been a lot of fun to watch and that she is still one of the more charismatic women on the roster, but I don’t think she inspires the material to be a top Diva. So unfortunately I wouldn’t be surprised if she was phased out of the company by next year.

  • TheGamergirl22

    Now that AJ’s a heel I have a feeling that Tamina gonna be her bodyguard seeing after Tamina lost against AJ Vickie started doing matches.

    Maybe a face turn for Vickie and she teams up with Kaitlyn

    • Bethinho

      Aj has already a bodyguard,Big E Langston,unless she “hires” Tamina to deal with the Divas.

      • TheGamergirl22

        Yeah like WWE would allow Big E to hurt the divas

  • missawesomeness

    one thing i never understood is why they put Tamina to return via attacking AJ and they didn’t bother with the rest and i thought she was gonna be Vickie’s body guard or something what’s with WWE and their half ass writers.

  • SweeneyTodd

    I don’t see a big push for Tamina. The division is more than ever about this love interest and good looking divas stuff. Tamina is not the typical type for this. In the “best” case she is feed for Kailtyn.

    • Clarke

      yeah I think she’ll be Divas champ by Wrestlemania time. I can see Kaitlyn defeating Eve at RAW 20th anniversary, than Tamina attacks her straight after her win, sparking a feud (always liked Kaitlyn and Tamina’s matches) and then maybe at Wrestlemania it could be Kaitlyn vs Tamina vs Eve vs ??

      • SweeneyTodd

        Just Kaitlyn vs. AJ (vs. Eve). Tamina just lunch at Elimination Chamber like last year.

  • ssilva872

    Some good matches.

    I hope Tamina/Layla is given time and same for Nattie/Alicia although being taped for SMS will hinder it a little most likely…

  • Johnyfaction3

    This people are too funny. Natalya finally is winning matches and being featured and people still complaining. Layla loses one match and all of the sudden becomes a jobber. Hahah. Not everyone can be on top at the same time. They have to put their new talent over too. Then Kaitlyn and Tamina win a match and that makes them the next champions and wrestlemania participants? Haha. Internet Divas fans…

  • hemme Wilde

    good greif people, layla loses one match to tamina and everyone freaks out!! first off, layla has been with the company for 6 years and has had many awesome storylines and 2 title reigns under her belt, i hate to say it but let someone else get the shine, its about time divas like tamina start getting wins, how else are they gonna build them up for when the rest of the last generation leaves? if eve, natalya, alicia, and layla all leave hows it gonna look that all tamina ever did was lose when shes more than likely gonna be the monster heel in about a year or so! just because layla lost to tamina doesnt mean shes jobbing! hello she beat eve at tribute to the troops that wasnt too long ago, stop complaining and see it for what it is, aj, kaitlyn, tamina those three are a start for the new generation of divas and tbh this generation looks pretty damn good!

  • 09DHK

    I just have a random question. Is Vickie a babyface for sure now? I’m only asking because wasn’t it Vickie who brought Tamina back as a heel to neutralize AJ and be Vickie’s bodyguard? Typical WWE dropping angles and throwing continuity out the window.

  • aldo

    Finally!!! Natalya vs Rosa Mendes!! We’ll see how that works…
    and the Tamina vs Layla match looks very impressive, they had a nice exchange in the Santa’s Helper diva tag team match

  • Kessuki

    Great to see Natalya picking up wins back to back. Perhaps being with Khali isn’t so bad.

  • hado

    Natalya/Fox was taped for Saturday Morning Slam according to other sources.
