Nikki Bella defeated Paige
Paige made a strong attempt to explain her recent actions to fellow Team PCB members Charlotte and Becky Lynch, while denying that she has anything to do with Natalya being mysteriously attacked one week earlier.
This rocky discussion was interrupted by Team Bella, three days before Nikki will get her Divas Title rematch with Charlotte at Hell in a Cell. While the daughter of Ric Flair didn’t want to wait for Sunday to get her hands on her No. 1 contender, Paige quickly barged forward to challenge the longest-reigning Divas Champion instead. Was she once again trying to make it all about her, or was she simply trying to make amends?
In the contest that followed — approved by Corporate Kane — Nikki decisively triumphed over The Diva of Tomorrow with the Rack Attack. Will Bella prove beautiful this Sunday?
Nikki Bella & Alicia Fox def. Naomi & Sasha Banks
What’s good, Team B.A.D.? Despite boasting one of the most boundary-breaking Divas in WWE history, the fearsome trio of Naomi, Sasha Banks & Tamina has found themselves at an odd crossroads. After a Brie Bella-incited “We Want Sasha” chant doomed Naomi to Nikki Bella last week, Team B.A.D. fell apart down the stretch in a tag match that was shouldered, for the most part, by the former Funkadactyl when Nikki & Alicia successfully barred The Boss from the contest almost completely. Give credit to Naomi for a star-making effort, but no Diva is an island, and Nikki sunk her fellow “Total Diva” with a Rack Attack when all was said and done.
Charlotte topped Alicia Fox in a hard-fought battle, forcing the foxy Diva to tap out to the Figure-Eight Leglock. After the match, Nikki and Brie Bella sent Becky Lynch from the ring, while simultaneously attacking the Divas Champion. Paige then stormed the ring, helping her Team PCB partners send Team Bella from the squared circle.
The WWE Universe still wants Sasha Banks, which, ironically enough, might end up being bad news for Team B.A.D. The raucous Chicago crowd’s chants for the freshly-minted WWE Iron Woman plagued the former Funkadactyl throughout her match with Nikki Bella, leading to a Windy City blowback of epic proportions during a furious rally for Naomi. Brie Bella egged the WWE Universe to cheer for The Boss right as Naomi hit her stride. The cacophony threw the B.A.D. figurehead off her rhythm just long enough for Nikki to lay Naomi out with a forearm, hit the Rack Attack and go home with the win.
Brie Bella & Alicia Fox def. Divas Champion Charlotte & Becky Lynch
Charlotte & Becky Lynch are on their own as BFFs, but the “CB” in “PCB” can’t quite shake their “P” problem just yet. Even though Natalya has become the veteran ally of the Divas Revolutionaries, Paige was lurking at commentary for their tag team contest against Brie Bella & Alicia Fox. And she got involved, too, upending things just as Charlotte began to roll over Brie Bella. That interference led to a scrum between every Diva in orbit of the ring, the upside of which was that Brie, in a solid show of moxie, gave Team Bella its second win of the night with a missile dropkick to the sternum of the Divas Champion.
