At the twenty-eighth WrestleMania, for the second year in a row, another celebrity cameo resulted in a Divas tag match. This time, TV host Maria Menounos joined Kelly Kelly to take on Beth Phoenix and Eve Torres, the result of a challenge made on the set of Extra. As is usually the case with these matches, the babyfaces picked up the win, Maria rolling up Beth for the three count after Kelly rescued her from a gorilla press slam.
Elsewhere, AJ Lee was making an impact of her own, costing Daniel Bryan the World Heavyweight Championship to Sheamus in a mere 18 seconds. All it took was a good luck kiss – one that distracted him long enough to be blindsided by a Brogue Kick – to cost him the title.
Lastly, several Divas had a presence at ringside in the battle of the brands 12-Man Tag Team match billed as “Team Johnny vs. Team Teddy”. Brie Bella and Vickie Guerrero stood in the Team Johnny corner, while Aksana, Eve Torres and Nikki Bella were part of Team Teddy. Team Johnny would pick up the win, crowning John Laurinaitis the General Manager of both the Raw and SmackDown brands.
