Tonight, we crown a new Divas Champion after the title has been vacated for the past two months. Who will it be? Gail Kim or Maryse? The Diva Dirt writers weigh in:
Cryssi: Last time we did this, I sat there and listed all the reasons why I thought Maryse would win, and then picked Gail Kim. I still believe in everything I said, so I stand by my prediction of Gail Kim winning. Someone’s got to against the popular vote so it may as well be me! Go Gail go!
Erin: The WWE doesn’t seem to care enough to make this “feud” interesting or unpredictable, so it seems silly to think about this match in too much detail–why should we care about this when the WWE clearly doesn’t. It’s been elementary from the very beginning that this is Maryse‘s tournament. She’s going to win the Divas Championship, as has been predicted from the get-go. What’s not certain is where they’ll go with it from there. I’m just hoping Maryse will actually do a bit of wrestling rather than sneak out the win.. At least then, this tournament might feel somewhat worth the effort.
Melanie: It’s pretty obvious, right? I don’t see WWE caring enough to swerve us and have Gail win. WWE loves Maryse and this whole tournament has revolved around her in some way or another. People already think she’s the champion so why not just make it official? Totally unsurprisingly, I think Maryse takes it.
Steven: Since the first match of this Divas Title tournament, WWE has put a spotlight on Maryse and it hasn’t dimmed since. In fact, I’d wager that as you read this WWE is busy engraving her name on the butterfly belt. As much as I’d love for Gail to win the title and get the recognition she deserves, it ain’t happening tonight. Expect Maryse to leave the Elimintion Chamber PPV as our new Divas Champion.
