WWE House Show Rundown: Results from May 27-29th, 2011

Having trouble keeping up with all of the mainstream women’s wrestling that takes place off TV? Well fear no more! Diva Dirt has got your back with the House Show Round-Up! Without any further ado, let’s kick things off!

This weekend, we had a pair of tag team matches from WWE, with the Raw brand displaying Kelly Kelly, alongside the winner of this season’s ‘Criminally Underused Diva’ award, Beth Phoenix, taking on Divas Champion, Brie, as well as sister Nikki.

Over on the SmackDown side of things, Natalya and the finally recently debuted, AJ, teamed up to face off against Alicia Fox and the face heel face heel for the evening, Rosa Mendes.

This past weekend’s house show results below:

Friday, May 27th

WWE Raw in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Beth Phoenix & Kelly Kelly def. The Bella Twins
“Beth got a huge pop when she made her entrance. The Bellas spent most of the match working over Beth including using “Twin Magic” to try to win but to no avail. Beth made the hot-tag to Kelly who scored the pinfall on one of The Bellas.” (Source)

Saturday, May 28th

WWE Raw in Sioux City, Iowa
Beth Phoenix & Kelly Kelly def. The Bella Twins
“The Bella Twins are technically supposed to be heels, but they actually received a pretty good reception. Phoenix entered next, followed by Kelly Kelly with her own entrance. Nice crowd pop for Kelly. Since Divas matches rarely get more than a few minutes on TV, it was nice to see a long-form match for once. The Bellas tagged in and out fairly frequently, especially early on. They also pulled the Switcheroo at least three times throughout the match. At one point, Kelly did the old Rikishi “stinkface” maneuver on one of the Bellas in the corner. Kelly hit a cross-body off the top rope for the win.” (Source)

WWE SmackDown in Madison, Wisconsin
Natalya & A.J. def. Alicia Fox & Rosa Mendes
“Back-and-forth match with Natalya slapping the Sharpshooter on Alicia Fox for the victory.” (Source)

Thoughts: I’ll start with SmackDown first. I’m probably in the minority on this one, but anything that gets Rosa Mendes used, win or lose, gets my approval, so I’ll give them a thumbs up. Over on Raw, the match is one I expected to happen on TV as soon as the draft results came out, yet the live event crowd gets to see it first. No problems with this result, as the right diva won for the fans to leave happy. Beth being used also gets some added points, therefore thumbs up to both brands of WWE this week.
