Two nights before, Kay won the No. 1 contendership in a match where she appeared dressed as the masked Maria Maria. That little bit of craftiness came back to bite Kay during the next night's title match when a masked Maria Maria came to the ring and threw a chair to her, making it appear as though Kay had used it to lay out the champion. This resulted in the referee calling for a disqualification.
After the mask was removed, the evil Maria Maria turned out to be Brandi Lauren.
