AJ Lee def. Brie Bella
Prior to her match against a recently returning AJ Lee, Brie Bella and her sister, Divas Champion Nikki Bella, spoke out about #givedivasachance, AJ’s reemergence from her “vacation” and how the only Diva voice that will be heard is the one at the top.
In the final moments of the hard-fought match that followed, however, Paige was heard loud and clear, as she dropped an interfering Nikki off the apron and paved the way for AJ to make Brie tap-out to the Black Widow.
Nikki posted this on her Instagram:
Busted my nose bad tonight
How gorgeous is she, even with no makeup and a busted nose??
Paige def. Divas Champion Nikki Bella via Disqualification
The term “Anti-Diva” implies a certain amount of solitude, but give Paige credit: She’s still got some friends, however unlikely, in the Divas division to bail her out of a beatdown when all’s said and done. This came in handy after her Divas Title Match against Nikki Bella, granted as a result of the controversial conclusion to the title bout at WWE Fastlane.
Despite Nikki’s unexpected deployment of power maneuvers, Paige rallied to lock in the PTO until Brie, who was roaming at ringside, jumped The Diva of Tomorrow to end the bout in a disqualification. Further humiliation followed the final bell, until AJ Lee, of all people, skipped her way down to the ring and joined forces with Paige to drive Nikki and Brie back. Why team with the woman who ended her record-setting title reign, you ask? Well, as the saying goes, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. ‘Nuff said.
HQ Screencaps (soon!)
Good news! This week’s “Total Divas” is, dare we say, kind of a much-needed romp in spots after last week’s emotional sledgehammer. That does tend to be the case when two of the three main plots involve Bella bickering and an Eva Marie scheme that involves an eight-pound burger.

Divas Champion Nikki Bella def. Paige
MEMPHIS, Tenn.— At WWE Fastlane, Divas Champion Nikki Bella overcame Paige in an extremely heated confrontation to keep the butterfly-emblazoned title firmly around the waist of the “fearless” femme fatale.
Though Paige took the fight to the beautiful titleholder from the onset, Nikki quickly took over and established early dominance over her No. 1 contender.
The Diva of Tomorrow would not be denied, roaring back to build an incredible offense of her own. That was until Nikki negated her sunset flip attempt off the top rope and hurled her English challenger to the canvas with unrelenting authority. Paige regained control and hooked in her signature PTO, signaling that the reign of the Divas Champion could be at an end. But Nikki managed to reach the ropes to break the painful maneuver, then scored the three-count with the help of a fistful of tights moments later.
Nikki Bella is beautiful. And after WWE Fastlane, she has never looked better.
Nikki & Brie posted on Instagram that they shot for the cover of Muscle and Fitness Hers a couple of days ago. This is the same magazine that Eva Marie is currently on the cover of.
Paige as a Rosebud?!?!? It happened — believe it. The Diva of Tomorrow was forced to borrow the outfit off one of Adam Rose’s coterie when The Bellas (having clearly taken their cues from The Dudley Boyz) stole her clothes and hid them in an attempt to embarrass Nikki’s No. 1 contender. The joke ended up being on them, as Paige not only beat an incredulous Summer Rae, but also looked good doing it and got twice as many bragging rights. After all, a PTO is that much more demoralizing when Paige is wearing a Lollipop Guild outfit.
