Event summary Edit

Kelly Kelly vs Brie Bella Edit

From talking trash on Twitter to building a “Bella Army,” Brie Bella thought she would easily defeat Divas Champion Kelly Kelly. But The Bella Twins should know one thing by now: Do not underestimate Kelly Kelly.

After five years of scratching and clawing her way between the ropes at a chance for the title, Kelly Kelly wasn’t ready to give up the butterfly-emblazoned prize at Money in the Bank. Accompanied by Eve to help even the numbers against the menacing duo, Kelly Kelly wouldn't need assistance, as she handled business on her own within the ring.

Several near-pinfalls by Brie Bella looked to have Kelly Kelly in trouble. Ever-resilient, Kelly sacrficed her body, jumping through the ropes and slamming the Bella Twins to the arena floor. One K2 later, Kelly had defended the title - and the only ones walking out of Chicago with an "L" on their forward - something The Bella Twins boasted on Twitter Kelly Kelly would be sporting - was the the terrible twosome.

The blonde bombshell initially wrested the Divas Championship against Brie Bella on Raw: Power to the People, where the WWE Universe overwhelmingly voted for Jacksonville, Fla., native to have a title match with the conniving Brie Bella. Using an impressive moveset and sheer determination, Kelly hoisted the title to the packed crowd – a testament to her hard work.

What’s next for Divas Champion Kelly Kelly? Will the Bella Army reconvene and continue to wage war, or does another Diva wait in the wings for her opportunity at the coveted title?
