Natalya, The Bellas, The Funkadactyls, JoJo & Eva Marie def. Divas Champion AJ Lee, Tamina Snuka, Kaitlyn, Rosa Mendes, Summer Rae, Aksana & Alicia Fox
BOSTON – At Survivor Series Sunday night, the jealous Divas Champion AJ Lee, her enforcer Tamina Snuka and a posse of five other rebelling Divas were served an eye-opening reality check that would make Roddy Piper and all of the Real Housewives proud. It was a close call, but the technical prowess of Natalya made the difference in the cast of “Total Divas” prevailing over a team of resentful competitors not showcased on E!’s hit reality series.
Alicia Fox was quickly pinned by the impressive Naomi following a dazzling split-legged springboard moonsault from the top rope. Following the eliminations of Cameron and Rosa Mendes, Nikki Bella and Summer Rae entered into an impromptu dance contest, but Summer was a bit too confident in her tango. With Fandango’s waltz partner posing in the ring, Nikki nailed her with a stiff kick to the skull, sending Summer from the ring back to the ballroom.
Former Divas Champion Kaitlyn showed her muscle as The Hybrid Diva eliminated both “newbie” Eva Marie and the funky Naomi with back-to-back executions of a maneuver that sent them from her shoulders to a knee in the gut. Brie Bella achieved immediate retribution, pinning Kaitlyn following a top-rope missile dropkick.
Aksana and Brie were both sent packing next and the dangerous Tamina Snuka stepped between the ropes. The daughter of Jimmy Snuka wiped the canvas with Nikki, and the exhausted Bella Twin slowly crawled to her corner to find only JoJo available and holding out her hand. Nikki reluctantly tagged in the youngest member of her team, giving JoJo her first official taste of WWE action. The rookie folded like a tent under the colossal Tamina. A momentary burst of energy afforded JoJo the opportunity to attempt a crossbody off the top rope, but Tamina caught the E! star in mid-air. A Samoan Drop later and JoJo was toast. Tamina tagged in AJ, allowing the detestable Divas Champion to score the pin.
Natalya entered the contest to tangle with Tamina in a clash of second-generation Divas, but Jim “The Anvil” likely winced at the sight of her daughter’s head crushing against the turnbuckle courtesy of the mighty Tamina. Yet, the powerful Diva was a bit too confident and, upon missing a Superfly Splash, tapped out to The Sharpshooter. An attempt by AJ to quickly gain the upper hand as the only remaining member of her team was unsuccessful. With Bret Hart looking on, Nattie locked AJ in another Sharpshooter, forcing the outspoken Divas Champion to submit.
With Natalya and Nikki Bella as the bout’s survivors, the cast of “Total Divas” was momentarily drama-free in Beantown, but their camaraderie likely won’t translate when the E! cameras start rolling again.
