Divas Champion Layla def. Alicia Fox

Seeing her first action in nearly two weeks, Divas Champion Layla displayed no signs of ring rust against Alicia Fox. The British bombshell took a tenacious fight to her latest opponent, summoning her grit and hustle to answer her agile opponent’s skill set. The reigning Divas Title holder secured victory with a well-timed whirlwind kick, impressing the crowd and one particularly important visitor at ringside.

Kaitlyn, the No. 1 contender for the Divas Title and Cole’s guest commentator for the match, stepped into the ring after the pin to offer Layla a gesture of goodwill. However, her show of sportsmanship ended abruptly as Eve, the Diva who Kaitlyn eliminated last to win the Divas Championship No. 1 Contender Battle Royal on Raw, stepped forward and curiously raised both of her ringmates’ arms in celebration. Neither the reigning titleholder nor her impending challenger seemed to know what to make of the gesture, but the trio elected to keep the peace on this night.
