What better way to convince you to buy a pay-per-view (PPV) than trot out eight attractive women who will beat each other up before throwing each other over the top rope and out onto a hard floor?
That's the plan when WWE hits the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, this Sun., Dec. 16, 2012, with its TLC event, as the promotion announced its free live pre-show, airing on all the usual channels (YouTube, Facebook, WWE.com), will feature a "Santa's Helper" Diva battle royal.
On the line is a shot at the Diva's championship currently held by Eve Torres.
Eight of WWE's fiercest females will light up Brooklyn, N.Y.'s Barclays Center like a tree in Rockefeller Center in the prelude to this Sunday's pay-per-view. The Pre-Show will stream live on WWE.com, YouTube.com/WWE and Facebook.com/WWE starting at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT. Among the Divas gunning for Eve's butterfly-emblazoned title are former champions Alicia Fox, Layla and Natalya, as well as Kaitlyn, AJ Lee, Rosa Mendes, Aksana and Tamina Snuka.
Essentially, that's the entire Divas division sans Vickie Guerrero and, of course, Eve. That's literally it anymore, folks.
As for the "Santa's Helper" gimmick, WWE doesn't really explain what exactly that means. Perhaps it's just a cheap way to get the Divas to dress up in Christmas clothing while they compete? Who knows? The better question might be: Who cares?
Anyway, who's your early favorite to win, Cagesiders?
