Divas Champion Nikki Bella vs. Paige
Go behind the curtain again with all-new candid photos of The Bella Twins backstage.
E!, WWE® and Bunim-Murray Productions’ “Total Divas” returns for its highly-anticipated fourth season on Tuesday, July 7 at 9pm ET/PT. “Total Divas” continues to give the exclusive, outside-the-ring look at WWE’s top Divas, and this season all it takes is just one spark! The Bella Twins™ (Nikki and Brie Bella), Natalya™ (Nattie), Eva Marie™, Paige™ and Naomi™ (Trinity) are back and ready to heat up the summer. The ladies will continue to give viewers an inside glimpse on balancing life in the spotlight with the drama of their personal lives, and the non-stop action of their professional careers, taken to new heights with Nikki Bella as the current WWE Divas Championship titleholder.
Season three of “Total Divas” remained a powerhouse for E!, reaching 1.73M Total Viewers and 1.12M Adults 18-49 in L3 ratings, solidifying its spot as one of the network’s hottest programs.

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?
