After a verbal altercation between former ECW General Manager, Tiffany and the First Lady of Straight Edge, Serena, SmackDown’s newest Divas decide to settle things inside of the squared circle. Watch below, as the blue brand beauties lock horns:
Out first is Serena and she’s carrying a very ominous black bag with her but more on that later. Tiffany comes out next and as always is perky and bubbly. As much as Tiffany cheerleader-esque attitude and gestures used to annoy me, I think she’s actually starting to grow on me. Now, if she could just stop nodding her head constantly.
The two start things off with a basic collar and elbow tie-up and Serena almost immediately overwhelms Tiffany and drives her into the turnbuckle. Serena tries to capitalizes but Tiffany takes her down with some sketchy looking armdrags followed by an armbar. Serena quickly gets to a vertical base and hits Tiffany with a knee to the gut followed by a stiff elbow to the face.
Serena stays on the offense, locking in a extremely aggressive side-headlock and whipping poor Tiffany all around the ring by her head. Luckily for Tiffany, she manages to toss Serena off with a quick takedown. Tiffany keeps the the pressure on Serena, executing a good looking shoulder block, followed by a inverted atomic drop and rounding things off with a jackknife pin for a near fall. Not wasting any time, Tiffany immediately locks in a front chancery, but is once again overcome by Serena and is driven into the corner.
Now we see CM Punk mentoring come into play, as Serena drives the shoulder into Tiffany gut and grinds it in for good measure. Serena whips Tiffany across the ring , but misses a clothesline and receives a cross body for her troubles. Tiffany tries to get the upper hand, but Serena ends up using her like a human battering ram in the corner.
After a failed pin attempt, Serena drags her prey into the middle of the ring and locks in a body scissors which she turns into a pin for the one count. Serena quickly cinches in another submission, now targeting the arm and back of Tiffany. The former GM regains her footing and reverses a scoop slam from the Anti-Diva, only to be laid out when both Divas decided to go for a flying clothesline.
Both Divas make it to their feet but Tiffany strikes first, leveling Serena with a flurry of elbows followed by a monkey flip. Tiffany goes for a suplex, but Serena counters it into what I can only assume is her personal version of the GTS. Serena goes for the cover and get the win. However, Serena cuts the celebration short and goes for that black bag we saw earlier. Serena reaches in the bag and pulls out those familiar clippers. Looks like Serena plans on making Tiffany an involuntary member of the SES. Luckily for Tiffany, the Queen of FCW, AJ Lee makes the save with the entire FCW Divas roster in tow.
Honestly speaking, I thought this was a great match. None of us expected Trish vs Lita part two here, but I think both Divas exceeded expectations in this match. I was especially impressed with Tiffany. She seems to be getting better and better with each match and hopefully she keeps improving. She managed to keep up with Serena without being carried the entire match, which is quite the feat for a rookie.
I also found the ending to be quite interesting. From the looks of things, no one really cares much for Serena or at the very least disagree with her methods. I see this leading up to Serena taking on AJ, with the loser leaving FCW. I don’t think I need to say who’ll win that match.
