Today in History: Beth Phoenix becomes the new #1 contender, turns Heel

On this day in history:

August 1st, 2011 | A number one contender to Kelly Kelly‘s Divas Championship was needed, so the WWE held a Battle Royal, pitting AJ Lee, Alicia Fox, Beth Phoenix, Brie and Nikki Bella, Eve Torres, Gail Kim, Kaitlyn, Melina, Natalya, Rosa Mendes and Tamina Snuka against one another. It came down to the Bellas and Beth, and the Glamazon managed to eliminate both twins at once become the new number one contender. Kelly and Beth hugged after the match, but Beth suddenly turned heel, attacking Kelly and sending the message that when it comes to the Divas Title, there’s no playing nice.

What are your memories of this moment?
