They may not have been given any time on Monday Night Raw this week, which is ludicrous considering it was the go home show to the next pay-per-view (PPV) event, but the Diva's will be having a championship match this weekend.
In an announcement passed along on WWE.com, it was revealed that Kaitlyn will defend her title against Tamina Snuka at WWE Elimination Chamber this Sun., Feb. 17, 2013, at the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana.
From the preview at WWE.com:
It is said that hard work breeds success. Few WWE Superstars or Divas are better examples of that saying's truth than Kaitlyn, the underdog beauty who powered her way to victory on WWE NXT season three. After years of toil and trial in the ring, Kaitlyn finally found herself standing tall as Divas Champion in a hometown victory so momentous it sent the deposed champion, Eve, packing from WWE altogether in a fit of rage. The title was hard won, and the road was hard-traveled, but as Kaitlyn's first title defense against Tamina Snuka approaches, it is now clear that her trials are only just beginning.
Since Eve Torres bailed on the company the Divas have hardly been given any time at all outside of the likes of Vickie Guerrero and AJ Lee, the two top ladies in the promotion. And neither of them actually wrestle, or at least it's not what they're known for.
Maybe this match will be the start of the turnaround. Wishful thinking?

- The Rock vs. CM Punk
