Call it a kiss of death.
Thanks to a stunning and seemingly sinister smooch Brie Bella planted on AJ Lee at the outset of Survivor Series’ Divas Championship Match, Nikki Bella unseated a stunned AJ to win the butterfly-emblazoned title in 33 seconds!
Brie, who remains Nikki’s contractually obligated personal assistant for two more days, leapt onto the ring apron with The Black Widow’s Divas Title over her shoulder as soon as the opening bell rang and kissed AJ. So confounded was the defending champion that she turned immediately into a punch, followed by the Rack Attack from Nikki and was promptly pinned.
Afterward, Brie not only held up her sister’s hand in victory, but even smiled while doing so, showing no hesitation to be side by side with her twin.
Though the events that led up to Nikki’s milestone win — the second Divas Championship of her career — are sure to be the talk of the WWE Universe for days to come, the world is also left to wonder exactly what the relationship of The Bella Twins is now.

Dressed as a black cat, Nikki turned out to be bad luck for the other Diva contenders, as well as her own sister. Brie, still acting as Nikki’s personal assistant as a result of her loss at Hell in a Cell, was ordered to leave the building on an errand for her twin, causing her to miss the No. 1 Contender’s Battle Royal altogether.

Divas Champion AJ Lee def. Brie Bella
Nikki Bella’s deviousness is growing by the week; having used her subservient sister to provoke AJ Lee into a fight last week, she further set about weakening the Divas Champion by instructing Brie Bella to do everything to AJ she wanted to do to Nikki. The strategy brought out the grittiest performance Brie’s put on in months, though it wasn’t enough to block a fateful Black Widow that gave AJ the win. Nikki got the last word anyway, dropping AJ with a Rack Attack after the match and posing with the – potentially her – Divas Title.
The 2014 MTV EMAs will be held at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow, Scotland, on 9 November 2014, and Brie and Nikki Bella have been announced as presenters.
