WWE 'Survivor Series' Preview: Eve vs Kaitlyn for the Divas Championship

Divas Championship: Eve Torres (c) vs. Kaitlyn

In a battle between Eve Torres, the established vet, and Kaitlyn, the up-and-coming star, one only Diva will be able to leave Survivor Series with the Divas Championship around her waist.

The road to Survivor Series

Kaitlyn defeated Eve Torres in a Battle Royal on the Aug. 20 edition of Monday Night Raw, to become the #1 Contender for Layla's Divas Championship at Night of Champions. Eve, however, was not ready to go quietly into the night. An "unknown assailant" attacked Kaitlyn backstage, forcing the NXT star out of the match. Eve was quick to insert herself into Kaitlyn's spot and defeated Layla to become the new Divas Champion.

Although Eve would win the title, she had also won the locker room's suspicion. Everyone was quick to blame Eve as the mastermind behind Kaitlyn's attack. Eve, to her credit, was able to deflect blame and has so far skirted away from any hard evidence against her. With so much controversy surrounding the match, though, SmackDown General Manager Booker T decided something must be done. He set up a Triple Threat match featuring all three women at Hell in a Cell. Eve was able to retain her title by pinning Layla.

Kaitlyn would get the better of Layla in a #1 Contenders match on Nov. 12 edition of Raw, earning the right to face Eve at Survivor Series.

What's at stake?

For Eve, this is a chance to extend her championship reign and prove that winning the title was no fluke. With Beth Phoenix out of WWE, the Divas division is quickly running out of challengers. A win tonight and Eve will all but guarantee her dominance in the division of the fairer sex.

Kaitlyn is a rising star in WWE. It is shocking to see the young talent rise to the top this quickly, but it cannot be denied that she has earned her opportunities. A win tonight would not only catapult her to the top of the division, but she would be able to exact revenge against the conniving Eve.

With all the talent she has, it looks like Kaitlyn will become Divas Champion sooner or later; the question remains, though, is will that moment come tonight against the beautiful and cunning Eve Torres? Or will Eve prove too much for the rookie to handle?

The only way to know is to turn into Survivor Series tonight!
