Thoughts: Despite the finish to the match being sloppy, I loved this match. This match told a story, and I loved how the commentators hyped it. Beth wanted to teach Kaitlyn respect and show her that she’s the teacher and Kaitlyn’s the student. I also love how Kaitlyn continued to sell her injury. Kaitlyn does indeed remind me of a mini Beth Phoenix. With a little more work, maybe she could be the next Glamazon. All in all, a great divas match on superstars.
