Battle lines have been drawn. “Total Divas” Brie Bella, Paige, Natalya, Alicia Fox & Eva Marie will attempt to put aside their differences long enough to take down the squad of B.A.D. & Blonde, featuring Lana, Naomi, Tamina, Emma & Summer Rae, this Sunday on the WrestleMania Kickoff.
The match will take place during the second hour of the Kickoff live on USA Network, as well as for free on WWE.com, the WWE App, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.
With seemingly incompatible elements on both sides, the newly confirmed match is proof that common enemies can lead to the unlikeliest of partnerships.
The bout also marks the in-ring debut of the Diva who sparked the war in the first place: Lana. The Ravishing Russian began targeting Brie Bella weeks ago, and soon aligned herself with Team B.A.D. Though Lana’s campaign against Brie began with one of her characteristic verbal assaults, in a surprise move, it then turned physical, with Lana ambushing the former Divas Champion and using the Bella Twin’s own signature move against her.
The trio’s brash behavior rankled their peers, even to the point where known Bella nemesis Paige agreed to side with Brie if it meant getting her hands on The Ravishing Russian.
A WrestleMania challenge was laid out by the Total Divas on March 21, leaving Lana & Team B.A.D. scrambling to find a fourth partner. It didn’t take the nefarious Divas long, however, as Emma and Summer Rae made their allegiances known the next night when they shockingly attacked Natalya and Alicia. The addition of Summer Rae raised eyebrows, considering her hostile history with Lana, but B.A.D. and Blonde nonetheless appeared confident as they maintained a numbers advantage against the Total Divas.
That is, until a certain crimson-haired member of the “Total Divas” cast made her presence felt on the March 28 edition of Raw. The ever-polarizing Eva Marie — seen most recently competing in NXT — returned to WWE to help the Total Divas fight off a 5-on-4 attack. Begrudgingly, Brie, Paige, Natalya & Alicia accepted Eva Marie’s overture, setting in motion WrestleMania’s 10-Diva brawl.
Will Eva Marie prove to be the difference maker? Can Lana back up her verbal attacks when she steps in the ring for the first time? And will the teammates on either side even be able to co-exist? Watch this 10-Diva Tag Team Match take center stage when the WrestleMania Kickoff Show.
