WWE Night of Champions 2014 Preview

Divas Champion Paige vs. Nikki Bella vs. AJ Lee

By order of Stephanie McMahon, one of WWE’s principal owners, Divas Champion Paige will put her title on the line at Night of Champions against both Nikki Bella and AJ Lee.

The announcement came at a time of incredible turmoil within the Divas division. Not only have things remained incredibly explosive between “frenemies” Paige and former champion AJ, but now the sibling troubles between Brie and Nikki Bella — which many agree have been stirred up by Stephanie herself — have taken center stage. Case in point, when Nikki was named No. 1 contender to the butterfly-emblazoned title on the Sept. 1 Raw, her sister threw her into the reigning champion.

But regardless of the firestorm surrounding the circumstances by which the bout was made, few can deny that it will be nothing short of an awesome Divas showdown. The Diva of Tomorrow and her unhinged predecessor are not only highly skilled and downright vicious when it comes to getting what they want, but they also have both shown a strong knack for employing serious mind games on one another.

And as far as Nikki Bella is concerned, the words “Total Diva” are not simply indicative of the show she stars in. A former Divas Champion herself, Nikki is the complete package of danger, ability and calculation. She’s a competitor who could easily best her opponents in a contest where the titleholder does not have to be pinned or submit to lose her championship.

But considering the volatile atmosphere, will the turbulent troubles between the elite Divas allow any of them to keep their focus on walking out of Night of Champions with the Divas Title? Also, will Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella play a part in the overall outcome? Find out Sept. 21 on WWE Network for only $9.99.

Candy crushed

AJ Lee is like a box of chocolates — you never know what you’re going to get. After confusing Divas Champion Paige with an awkward hug and an unusual kiss on the hand last Monday night, AJ presented her “friend” with a heart-shaped box full of sweet treats on SmackDown that ultimately left a bad taste in the titleholder’s mouth. The Divas Champion spit out one of AJ’s gifted goodies, which was met by AJ’s creepiest gaze since, well, Monday night. Just what the heck is going on between these “frenemies”?

Paige’s ‘friendly’ fire

No, Paige. That’s not how a trust fall works. After Divas Champion AJ Lee handily dispatched Rosa Mendes on SmackDown, the titleholder fell victim to a surprise sneak attack by her “frenemy” that sent her soaring off the stage and leaving the arena on a stretcher. According to WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann, AJ suffered whiplash as a result of the attack Paige claimed was just some good-natured horseplay. As AJ recovers, she will need to prepare for a Divas Championship rematch at SummerSlam.

AJ will no doubt be looking for some retribution this week. With her injury at the hands of The Diva of Tomorrow, though, will she be able to attain it?

Divas Champion AJ Lee vs. Paige

Mere days after Paige shoved Divas Champion AJ Lee off the SmackDown stage, WWE.com has learned the two fierce competitors will meet in a title rematch at SummerSlam.

The championship bout will mark the newest chapter in the steadily intensifying conflict between The Black Widow and The Diva of Tomorrow. After trading the butterfly-emblazoned title, AJ and Paige met in a rubber match at WWE Battleground. Unlike their first two encounters, both of which ended in the blink of an eye, their WWE Battleground match was a highly competitive, back-and-forth contest narrowly won by AJ.

In the days and weeks that followed, Paige’s demeanor toward AJ — who Paige has admittedly considered a role model — changed drastically, going from disappointed to angry to apologetic. The final break in the Divas’ “frenemy” status came on the July 28 edition of Raw when Paige called AJ “crazy,” leading to a wild brawl.

Paige again crossed the line on the Aug. 1 edition of SmackDown when, following AJ’s defeat of Rosa Mendes, she snuck behind The Black Widow and sent her flying off the blue brand’s set. The ambush caused a whiplash injury for the Divas Champion. Despite the fact that medical personnel had to tend to AJ and remove her from the arena on a backboard, Paige was captured on video telling AJ she “still love[d]” her and instructing officials to be careful with her “best friend.”

Subsequently on social media, Paige was seemingly in denial of the injury she caused, suggesting everyone was simply “overreacting.”

With Paige apparently coming more unhinged by the day, what will be in store for the reigning Divas Champion at SummerSlam? Will AJ, seeing red, unleash her most vicious side yet? And will Paige’s plan of attack be revealed as strategic or simply a sign of dangerous instability?

For the answers to these questions and more, be sure to watch the Divas Championship Match when SummerSlam airs live on WWE Network Sunday, Aug. 17, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Divas Champion AJ Lee vs. Paige

In an escalating and high-stakes game of retaliation, Divas Champion AJ Lee will defend her title against Paige at WWE Battleground. Though Paige has appeared humbled, if not wholly respectful toward AJ, since losing the butterfly-emblazoned championship, the short history of this rivalry suggests serious tension is brewing just below the surface.

The Diva of Tomorrow stole AJ’s spotlight, and her title, the night after WrestleMania in an impromptu match that began with Paige congratulating The Black Widow on being the longest-reigning Divas Champion in history. After the victory, the 21-year-old strung together a series of wins against top competition, despite other Divas’ claims that Paige was in over her head and simply enjoying a lucky streak.

Her luck ran out on June 30 when AJ returned unannounced and, in a scene oddly reminiscent of the night after WrestleMania, offered her congratulations to the champion. Skeptical, Paige insisted she wouldn’t be goaded into a title match, only to do just that and, within moments, lose the title.

Whether she was a victim of AJ’s manipulation or her own hubris, Paige will have a dangerous and determined champion standing across the ring from her on July 20. Will the battle be won through strategy, with victory belonging to the woman who’s best able to navigate her opponent’s subterfuge, or will the match be just plain vicious? And how will it end, with a fast rollup or surprise attack, as both previous AJ-Paige encounters have ended so far, or will either AJ or Paige be forced to submit to the other’s painful maneuvers?

Watch this highly anticipated Divas Championship Match when it airs live on WWE Battleground, available on WWE Network and pay-per-view Sunday, July 20, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!

What’s Paige’s endgame?

Déjà vu, anyone? Just as a debuting Paige captured AJ Lee’s Divas Title the night after WrestleMania, a returning AJ reclaimed her prize in a similarly unexpected championship collision with The Diva of Tomorrow last week on Raw.

Paige has taken the loss in stride, at least on the surface. On SmackDown, the British beauty sat at ringside during AJ’s non-title clash against Eva Marie, even offering a congratulatory handshake to the two-time Divas Champion after the match. Is this a show of good sportsmanship, or is Paige trying to gain a psychological edge over the returning titleholder — a Diva who knows a thing or two about mind games herself?
