Armed for the next round
BILOXI, Miss. -- The remaining contestants in the SmackDown Diva Competition muscled up in their latest showing. All four beauties had one final opportunity to show off their arm wrestling skills before Victoria learned she was the unlucky Diva who would face elimination.
Assistant Manager Theodore Long welcomed the competitors to the squared circle where Victoria and Eve faced off in the first match. Victoria beamed with confidence and seemed to toy with Eve, perhaps purposely making the Diva Search winner think she had a chance to win, just before crushing her hand and her hopes. Michelle McCool followed and took on a hesitant Cherry. The All-American Girl overpowered her and moved on to the second round to face the Widow's Peak dealer to determine a winner in this week's competition.
Much to Victoria's disappointment, Michelle edged out a victory in a closely-fought Arm Wrestling Match. To make matters worse, Victoria was delivered the news of her departure from the SmackDown Diva Competition just moments later.
The string of tension between the contestants started showing in the locker room when Maryse put down Cherry and the entire contest, earlier in the night. Victoria followed that in the ring when she lunged at Michelle, looking to take out her frustrations for be denied the chance to win the motorcycle from Beverly Hills Chopper. The All-American Diva promptly turned the tables and unloaded on her attacker, chasing her from ring and proving her victory was not a fluke.
Though she won this round of the contest, Michelle has not sealed up the win for entire SmackDown Divas Competition. You, our fans, will decide who wins the motorcycle, designed by Johnny Fratto, and the bragging rights by texting the name of who you think is the hottest Diva on SmackDown to 44993.
Don't forget to vote and tune into SmackDown next Friday at 8/7 CT on The CW Network to find out which of the final three Divas will be forced to say goodbye.
