PROVIDENCE, R.I. - If Beth Phoenix has an enemies list, "Santina" Marella is surely bubbling to the top.

Santino's "twin sister" socked The Glamazon with a shot of humiliation in front of a capacity crowd in the Dunkin' Donuts Center. To her credit, the fairer Marella had actually shown up to explain to an enamored Great Khali why she couldn't kiss him: She wasn't who she claimed to be, in fact, she was in love with another man, announcer Jim Ross. Before she could prove her love for Ross with a kiss, however, Beth barged in.

Beth, who had earlier informed her boyfriend Santino that as long as he continued to pretend to be Santina she would not kiss him, proclaimed that the charade had gone too far and demanded a rematch with Santina for the "Miss WrestleMania" title.

Prior to the start of the match, Beth questioned Khali's intelligence over his feelings for Santina. As one might imagine, The Punjabi Giant didn't take kindly to the criticism and knocked out The Glamazon. With Beth momentarily out of commission, Santina called for the starting bell and quickly secured the pin. Her time in the ring, however, was not without incident. An enamored Khali, perhaps turned on by Santina's victory, attempted to restrain her, but her top broke in a wardrobe malfunction and sent the Italian scurrying up the entrance ramp topless

While Santino's sister may have avoided the kiss of Khali, as long as she remains on Beth's hit list, it's unlikely she'll avoid the kiss of death.
