So Nikki Bella’s got Paige one-on-one at Money in the Bank. So far, so good. But the title-holding half of Twin Magic’s practitioners had to contend with Summer Rae on Raw before The Diva of Tomorrow got her turn at Money in the Bank. Nikki passed the test with flying colors, though, fending off the “Total Divas” veteran with a springboard enzuigiri and the Rack Attack for the victory.
In light of the controversial conclusion of last week’s Divas Championship Match, Nikki Bella will defend her title against Paige this Sunday at Money in the Bank. The Diva of Tomorrow claims that Nikki and her sister Brie are holding the entire Divas division back. Whether she can dethrone the established order, however, remains to be seen.

On SmackDown, three nights after falling victim to “Twin Magic” during her Divas Championship Match against Nikki Bella on Raw, Paige launched into an impassioned address, criticizing The Bella Twins of holding back the entire Divas division.
“If you don’t like the world that you live in, you have the power to change it,” The Diva of Tomorrow said. “So, I guess I’m going to have to change it.”
What exactly did the former Divas Champion mean? Will we see Paige begin to institute this “change” on Raw?
Nikki Bella will compete on the live WWE Network Supercard event that was announced for July 4th from Tokyo, Japan.
The Divas Title will be on the line in a repeat of their Elimination Chamber match, as Nikki takes on Paige and Naomi in a Triple Threat match.
The event will air at 6:30AM EST.
Divas Champion Nikki Bella def. Paige
It was always going to take an extreme circumstance to relieve Nikki Bella of the Divas Championship, and as it turns out, a pair of superkicks and a second-rope Ram-Paige were just the ticket. Almost. Paige — who successfully campaigned for the one-on-one title match she had yet to receive — certainly brought her A-game in pursuit of a record-tying third Divas Championship, but all the scouting in the world couldn’t prepare her for Nikki’s ace in the hole.
The champion, already displaying a cockier attitude than usual, proved she’d do whatever it took to secure her reign, resurrecting Twin Magic by switching places with Brie Bella after the brutal Ram-Paige. The fresh twin sprang a rollup on the winded challenger, securing the pinfall and the Bella legacy for another day.
