Re: The downward slide of Beth Phoenix.
Beth Phoenix can't always be at the top. And Kaitlyn is her obvious replacement. They both have that muscled, but feminine look and Kaitlyn is younger so she's prettier.
Only two Divas can be near the top at a time, the rest have to fade into the pack -- or find a non-wrestling part a la Eve and AJ. Beth isn't a very good actress. Kaitlyn did some good stuff on NXT.
This is just normal. I'm sure Beth will get another run near the top before her run with WWE is over.
