WWE Divas – October 19, 2012 Smackdown Match: Natalya vs. Layla
—The match starts off with a kick to the gut by Natalya. Natalya goes for a scoop slam, but Layla counters and goes for a roll up. Natalya goes to counter the roll up, and in the process, she’s sent outside to the ring. Natalya goes to climb up the ring, but Layla dropkicks Natalya back outside to the ring. Layla locks eyes with Eve and looks angrily at her, giving Natalya the opening she needs to take Layla down. Back in the ring, Natalya takes control with some strike attacks, followed by her signature submission hold to the head and leg. Layla’s able to escape out of the hold, and comes back with a headlock takeover. She attempts a kick to Natalya’s abdomen. Natalya goes to counter, but Layla rolls her up for a near fall. Natalya nails Layla with a spinning clothesline and gets a near fall. Layla hits Natalya with a kick to a head and gets the pin and a win.
—In a backstage segment, we see Eve and Smackdown GM Booker T talking. Booker praises Eve for doing a great job as his assistant. In walks Teddy, and he tells Booker T that he came up with an idea of Sheamus facing Wade Barrett in a Lumberjack Match. Eve claims that she had that idea since last week and already told Booker about it. She then goes on to accuse Teddy of stealing her idea. Booker is disappointed in Teddy and leaves for a meeting. Eve follows after, giving Teddy a disgusting look and leaving her iPad on the table. This prompts Teddy to pick it up and look through it.
—In another backstage segment, Teddy walks up to Kaitlyn and shows her something on Eve’s iPad. Teddy goes on to say that Eve must be stopped and Kaitlyn needs to confront Eve. Kaitlyn agrees and takes photos of Eve’s iPad screen.
Thoughts:I wasn’t really into this week’s match honestly. It just wasn’t all that exciting to me, mainly because of the time it was given. It wasn’t a terrible match, but at the same time, it wasn’t exciting. I did enjoy the commentary from Eve. I’m loving how she’s playing the victim and is claiming that Layla’s pretty much in the wrong. I’m hoping that we’ll see some storyline progression next week. I loved the backstage segment as well. Eve’s continuing to make Teddy look bad, and I have a feeling that she could end up getting him fired due to her manipulative ways. Then again, Teddy could get Eve fired because of what he found on her iPad. I liked how he showed Kaitlyn because it obviously shows that it has something to do with her. I can’t wait to find out what Teddy and Kaitlyn found on Eve’s iPad. All in all, while we weren’t treated to an exciting match, we were treated to a couple of nice backstage segments and storyline progression.
