Maria Menounos didn't back down from an open challenge made when Divas Champion Beth Phoenix and Eve crashed the set of NBC's Extra at The Grove in Los Angeles. After Beth and Eve interrupted Thursday night's telecast while Kelly Kelly was being interviewed, the Divas Champion dared Menounos and her longtime opponent to a match at WrestleMania XXVIII. Unfazed by the heated confrontation, Menounos accepted as a live audience cheered on the hostess of Extra, the nationally recognized leader in entertainment news. WWE officials have confirmed that a tag team match pitting Menounos and Kelly Kelly against Beth and Eve will take place at The Show of Shows on April 1. Menounos has never been one to back down from WWE competition, having clashed with Phoenix twice before, including a shocking pinfall over The Glamazon in an Eight-Diva Tag Team Match at WWE Tribute to the Troops last December. Both occasions provided Menounos an opportunity to prove she's more than capable of holding her own in a WWE ring. Now the entertainment show anchor will get a chance to tangle with Beth and Eve on The Grandest Stage of Them All. And you can bet Kelly Kelly will hold nothing back in a battle with two of her fiercest rivals in the Divas division. It all shapes up to be one the hottest clashes in Miami at WrestleMania XXVIII."
My thoughts: This will be a very interesting match. Maria has proven before that she can wrestle, so it's a very likely possibility that she and Kelly may win the match at WM. However, both Beth and Eve are great wrestlers and very tough, so MM and KK (they both have double initials! :]) may have to put a little more effort into it this go round. Overall, I think WWE did a good job with this match considering the Divas were going to be cut from the card altogether a few weeks ago. I wish Kelly and Maria luck, and hope that they can pull out a victory.
