Divas Champion AJ Lee vs. Paige
AJ Lee and Paige’s fierce tug-of-war over the Divas Championship continues, as the upstart Divas will clash again at Hell in a Cell.
After Paige lost the championship to her “frenemy” in a Triple Threat Match also involving Nikki Bella at Night of Champions, she looks to win the title for a third time, the number of reigns that AJ currently possesses.
The rivalry began on Raw the night after Wrestlemania 30, when Paige scored a shocking, and quick, upset victory over AJ, ending The Black Widow’s record-setting 295-day reign as Divas Champion. Tension rose on the June 30 edition of Raw, when AJ made short work of Paige to regain the championship. The Diva of Tomorrow defeated AJ for the title again at SummerSlam, only for AJ to regain the title at Night of Champions.
In recent weeks, AJ has combatted the new alliance of Paige and Alicia Fox in tag team competition, but the controversial Diva has yet to form a lasting partnership. First, she walked out on Emma on the Oct. 6 edition of Raw, and then Layla abandoned AJ during a tag match on the Oct. 13 Raw. After winning the match nonetheless, AJ put Layla in her place for her betrayal.
With the support of perhaps a new BFF, can Paige topple the Divas Champion once again? Or will AJ make a successful title defense and prove she can do just fine on her own? This Divas Championship war comes to a head at Hell in a Cell, live on pay-per-view and the WWE Network this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!
