Divas Champion Paige & Nikki Bella def. Brie Bella & AJ Lee
In the ongoing battle of the Bellas, it is now Nikki who has won the latest battle. Although the former Divas Champion didn’t defeat her sister in singles competition, Nikki did help captain a two-Diva team to victory over Brie Bella and AJ Lee in a big-time Divas Tag Team Match on Raw. It didn’t hurt Nikki’s cause that her partner was the current Divas Champion, Paige, either. In fact, Nikki immediately tagged the champ in rather than mix it up with her sister, and Paige handled her team’s business with brutal efficiency, draping Brie over the ropes and pulverizing her with knees to the ribs.
Brie didn’t even get a chance to tag AJ when she did get separation, as Nikki scuttled behind The Black Widow and hauled her off the apron. Paige finished Brie off with the Ram-Paige, and Nikki got the last laugh on her sister by dropping her after the bell with the Nikki Rack Attack.
I’ve added the HQ digitals from Total Divas to the gallery. I’ll add the HQ screencaps later this week as well.
Total Divas Season 3 HQ Digitals
This is hilarious! I can’t wait for the new season 🙂
In the new season of Total Divas, premiering Sunday, Sept. 7 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on E!, there will be a scene where some of the Total Divas dress up like Eva Marie. Here is a preview shot of The Bella Twins, Cameron and Natalya imitating her.

One of our favorite things about Total Divas is seeing all of the amazing outfits that each Diva wears—both inside and outside of the ring.
Brie Bella leans more towards bohemian-style clothing, wearing flowy dresses and hippie headpieces while Nikki Bella loves to glam it up with designer bags, sky-high stilettos and sexy mini dresses.
Ariane has a more funky style, opting for gladiator sandals and cute bodycon dresses, while Eva Marie tends to dress more sporty with crop tops and form-fitting jeans.

But even when the Divas are competing for that Championship title, they still know how to look super fashionable and have turned the wrestling ring into their very own personal catwalk.
Nattie is known for her eye-catching wrestling wear, and she even wears fan-designed costumes, while Trinity and Ariane wear a range of hot outfits (from schoolgirl themed to Mardi Gras) that they kick ass in!
Sisters really are doing it for themselves: Nikki Bella made what was perhaps the biggest power play of SummerSlam 2014 when she betrayed her own flesh and blood, Brie Bella, and fed her to Stephanie McMahon in their grudge match. As Stephanie allowed Nikki to explain, the reason for the Diva’s total betrayal stemmed from Brie’s supposed “selfishness” throughout their lives, especially in the months since Brie quit to save Daniel Bryan’s title reign. It was a cold-blooded denouncing of the sisters’ lifelong bond. Brie’s last-ditch offer of forgiveness to her sister was met with similar coldness, plus a stinging slap from Nikki to Brie’s cheek.
Stephanie McMahon def. Brie Bella
They’re sisters, they’re reality television co-stars and, until SummerSlam, they were the best of friends. However, inside the sold-out STAPLES Center, the closer-than-close relationship between The Bella Twins proved to be the most stunning casualty in the brutal war between Brie Bella and Stephanie McMahon.

Before Nikki’s actions would ultimately change the complexion of both the Divas division and her own family, Stephanie strode to the ring with complete confidence, sporting ring gear that was more reminiscent of a power-hungry comic book supervillainess than WWE’s Chief Brand Officer. It was the Authority matriarch’s first match in more than a decade, with the utter humiliation of Brie Bella taking precedence over a mere in-ring victory. Dragging her smaller foe around the ring by her hair and stunning Brie with a wince-inducing DDT, Stephanie showed no signs of ring rust in the early goings of this intensely emotional confrontation.
Brie was, in time, able to capitalize on Stephanie’s overconfidence when she connected with a missile dropkick from the middle rope, a maneuver that brought the capacity crowd to its feet in a booming ovation. However, those cheers soon transformed to jeers when Triple H marched intently down the entrance ramp. The Authority would win the night, one way or another.
HQ Screencaps – coming soon
Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella signed their SummerSlam contract
It is a time-honored tradition that WWE contract signings do not typically end in civil fashion, but give The Authority credit for trying to keep the Stephanie McMahon-Brie Bella sit-down businesslike for as long as possible. That being said, cooler heads did not exactly prevail and after some preliminary fighting words, pen was put to paper and the brawling began in earnest. It wasn’t Brie who caught the beating, though, but Nikki Bella, who Stephanie clobbered in the head with a microphone and planted with a Pedigree while Triple H blocked Brie into the corner with the signing table. Moments later, Brie broke free and suffered the same fate as her sister.

To recap: The cost to watch SummerSlam is $9.99 on WWE Network. But seeing this long-stewing rivalry finally come to its glorious conclusion? Well, that’s priceless.
I added some screencaps and animated gifs from the Total Divas preview, and Brie’s interview with Michael Cole. You can find them here:
