* Beth Phoenix via Twitter, "Thank you to everyone that helped me thru the airport this morning. Will keep every posted on MRI and xray results. Believe me…nothing …hurts worse than my heart right now after the loss and even worse thought of missing competition. But i have been bere before, and if…there is one thing Beth Phoenix knows how to do, it’s rise from the ashes. The title will be mine again. #unbreakable"
* While Beth Phoenix appeared to be legitimately injured on Monday during WWE Raw, the plan for her to drop the Divas Title to Nikki Bella has been planned for a few weeks reports The Wrestling Observer. The idea was to get the Divas Title off of Beth Phoenix so that Kharma could get the belt without facing Phoenix first. As of a few days ago the plan was for Nikki to win the title, most likely at the Extreme Rules PPV, and then get destroyed by Kharma the next night on Raw. Plans were moved up obviously, as the title change happened on Raw this Monday. Kharma destroying Nikki Bella for the Divas Title would have brought her back into the mix as a dominant force and would have ended the Kharma-Bella storyline that began last year.
While Nikki won the Divas title on Monday, PWInsider.com reports that nothing new has been said about The Bella Twins leaving WWE at the end of this month. It's possible that they came to terms on new contracts but that's not believed at this time.
