Not happy with just one divas match on the card for this Sunday's Survivor Series event, WWE has announced that their will be a traditional Survivor Series match pitting Team Alicia against Team Paige.
The teams consist of Fox, Natalya, Naomi and Emma up against Paige, Cameron, Summer Rae and Layla. No word yet on if this will be an elimination match, because last year there was a seven on seven divas match and that was one fall to a finish.
Chance for the divas
If it's an elimination match, it will give some of these divas some much needed air time, after the finale of Total Divas aired the same night as Hell in a Cell, many of the divas have been underused as the main focus seems to be on AJ Lee and Nikki Bella as they battle for the title. As well as Nikki and Brie as they seem to just be battling for some spotlight.
Natalya was back at ringside for her husbands match against Adam Rose on Raw, after she was absent on Smackdown, but that storyline seems yet to carry weight as a lot of the whole marital situation happened on Total Divas, and WWE are yet to bring up a problem in recent weeks.
Alicia and Paige seem to be the team captains after the former besties turned on each other and Alicia eliminated herself and Paige from the battle royal that crowned Nikki the number one contender to AJ's Divas Championship. Hopefully these two will continue this rivalry because the divas division is lacking a back up divas match right now.
The one person who most people will notice is missing from the match is Natalya's protege as it were, Rosa Mendes. This looks like an all Total Divas battle and, because The Bellas are busy with their own match, Rosa is the only one missing from the cast. This is because she is going to be on the Survivor Series kick off show where we will see her as the valet of the new and improved Fandango.
This will give Rosa some air time of her own and will allow her to be play a part with her own storylines on the next season of Total Divas.
A second divas match on the card is a big boost for the division, even though the actual event is free, it shows WWE has some faith in the women to make the second longest running WWE event as memorable as it usually is. And this can only be a good thing.
