Who deserves to be Divas Champion?
Well, this is getting complicated. For weeks, Naomi has been the most persistent threat to Nikki Bella’s Divas Championship reign — especially since aligning with the returning Tamina — but Paige has also laid claim to No. 1 contendership since re-emerging in WWE Monday night on Raw. In fact, were it not for Naomi ambushing The Diva of Tomorrow on the April 13 edition of Raw in London, Paige would have faced Nikki for the illustrious prize last month at Extreme Rules.
Now, two game Divas are gunning for Nikki’s butterfly-emblazoned title at WWE Elimination Chamber, exclusively on WWE Network in the United States. As their Triple Threat Divas Championship Match approaches, what fireworks can we expect from these three fierce competitors on Raw?
