Beth Phoenix Discusses Layla and the WWE Divas Title, Eve Torres’ New Role

– WWE’s website has a new storyline interview up with Beth Phoenix. Here are some highlights:

Being pulled from the Extreme Rules Divas Title match:
“I was in a state of shock. I’d been told I would be allowed to compete regardless of the injury, but I guess when the doctor’s report came back it was a different story. It doesn’t matter. This is a road I’ve been down before. But I would have competed hurt – I’ve done that before too.”

Layla winning the title:
“Layla hasn’t earned anything. I mean, who’d she ever beat? No one should be No. 1 contender until I’m cleared. There shouldn’t have even been a Divas Championship Match at Extreme Rules. I know Layla was out for a year. Big deal! I had ACL surgery too, and I made it back in half the time. When I return, I’m not only going to beat up Layla, I’m going to bust her other knee, and make sure that she goes away and never comes back. She has no idea what she has gotten herself into.”

Eve Torres as Executive Administrator:
“Eve’s making a statement in her role. She’s flexing her muscles a little bit, and I respect that. Eve and I actually have a lot in common in that we’re both strong, powerful women wanting to get more in a man’s world. That said, I don’t like being talked down to, and I don’t like being taken for granted. If Eve ever challenges me, then she’s going to have her hands full.”

    wwe from terrible 30 second match between bellas and layla. from divas 90 percent time not getting any good matches. writiers and vince do not care about divas. they are a bathroom break. or a filler to fill time. i say wwe just end pg era. go tv14 put them in lesbian roles hot matches bra and panties matches, paddle on pole matches. or stay pg make them all be valets for wrestlers in mid card. guys like swagger, and others who can’t talk or have trouble getting over. it would be boost to have wwe send them to florida fcw. have train them teach them cut promos talk well head games. so they could contribute for mid card talent to help some guys get over. tammy sunny francine, elizabeth, debra mcmicheals, stacy keibler were valets who were good talker and did great job mangers for mid card talent. why not do that with wwe divas? wwe divas i and other want to see them with alot time. so make them valets are out them in good storylines.

    Or just trash the Diva’s division and make them dancers like the nitro girls. Nitro Girls had more airtime than the current diva roster.

    I hope we dont get a 20 second worthless Divas match on RAW. Id be happy with a battle royal to determine a #1 contender… then have Lharma come in last and take out all the divas. Layla can watch from commentary. Itll be like Summerslam 2007 when Beth won the Battle Royal and was a huge threat to Candice… I shouldnt get my hopes up … we always get disappointed 🙁
