WWE Money in the Bank 2014 Preview

Divas Champion Paige vs. Naomi

This Sunday at Money in the Bank, live on WWE Network, WWE Divas Champion Paige will face one of her toughest challenges to date when she faces the extremely agile Funkadactyl, Naomi.

The rivalry between the two Divas began brewing last week, when Naomi’s fellow Funkadactyl, Cameron, interrupted Paige’s interview on the WWE App and slapped the Divas Champion. Despite the dancing Diva’s ferocious new attitude, Paige forced Cameron to tap out to the PTO as Naomi watched at ringside.

One night later, on WWE Main Event, Naomi put up more of a fight when she took on the Divas Champion. Paige nearly had the bout won, until Naomi wriggled out of the Paige Turner and landed a devastating reverse DDT to pick up the non-title victory. Cameron seemed to take more delight in the win than her friend, celebrating in an over-the-top-manner, even shoving the Divas Champion.

Cameron immediately earned herself an attitude adjustment, in the form of a pair of vicious headbutts and a slam from Paige. Naomi watched as her partner was unceremoniously tossed to the arena floor, then shook the Divas Champion’s hand, a sign of respect between two true competitors.

Following her victory over Paige, Naomi has earned herself a title opportunity at Money in the Bank. With the Divas Championship on the line, will the good sportsmanship continue between Paige and her challenger, or will Cameron’s new outlook influence Naomi to do whatever it takes to capture the title? Find out this Sunday at WWE Money in the Bank, LIVE on WWE Network and on pay-per-view at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!

Divas Champion Paige vs. Alicia Fox

It’s always difficult to predict what Alicia Fox will do next, but one thing’s for certain: The leggy Floridian will vie for the Divas Championship when she takes on Paige this Sunday at WWE Payback.

Nearly four years after the wily Fox last laid claim to the Divas Title, the off-kilter competitor has come unhinged in pursuit of the coveted prize now held by the youngest Divas Champion in history. It was Alicia’s defeat at the hands of Paige on the May 12 edition of Raw that unleashed a side of her personality yet unseen by the WWE Universe, leading the boisterous beauty to tear apart the ringside area and abscond with JBL’s hat.

The bizarre antics continued the following night on WWE Main Event, exclusively on WWE Network. After suffering a roll-up loss to Emma — another new arrival from WWE NXT — Fox had another massive meltdown, attacking commentators and ring announcer Tony Chimel in an apparent fit of frustration.

Fox’s startling new mindset finally reaped rewards on the May 19 Raw when she pinned Paige in a non-title encounter, giving The Diva of Tomorrow her first loss since debuting on the main WWE roster the night after WrestleMania. That victory has catapulted the fiery Fox into the Divas Title picture as she prepares to wrest the championship from the raven-haired titleholder’s grasp.

Although Paige might be young, the Norwich-born prodigy has been lacing up wrestling boots since she was 13 years old, and competed all over the world before entering WWE’s developmental system at the age of 18. After ending the unprecedented 295-day reign of prior titleholder AJ Lee in her first night as a WWE Diva, Paige turned back the imposing Tamina Snuka at Extreme Rules, proving that her post-WrestleMania triumph was far from a fluke.

Just as Paige has continued to impress with her in-ring aggression and formidable Scorpion Crosslock submission hold, so too has Alicia dropped jaws with her bombastic new attitude. What will happen when these two indomitable Divas collide? Tune in to WWE Payback, live on WWE Network and pay-per-view this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.

Raw Five-Point Preview – April 21, 2014

Tamina’s time?

On last week’s edition of WWE Main Event on WWE Network, Tamina Snuka outlasted nine other Divas in an intensely competitive Battle Royal, earning the right to challenge newcomer Paige for the Divas Championship at Extreme Rules.

As the muscled enforcer of prior titleholder AJ Lee — who held the butterfly-emblazoned prize for a record 295 days — Tamina has long been in the presence of the Divas Championship. Now, however, she looks to rise to the top of the Divas division on her own. Will Tamina continue to assert her dominance this week on Raw? Also, what challenges face the 21-year-old Paige in the lead-up to her first title defense?

Divas Champion Paige vs. Tamina Snuka

Paige may have unwittingly backed her way into winning the Divas Championship from AJ Lee, but to keep hold of the Divas division’s top prize, she’ll have to survive a one-on-one contest with AJ’s muscle, Tamina Snuka, at Extreme Rules.

After spending months in AJ’s corner, helping the sinister skipper secure the longest Divas Championship reign in history, Tamina stepped out of the shadows on the April 15 edition of WWE Main Event to win a No. 1 Contender’s Battle Royal. Her dominant display in the match bumped Tamina to the head of the line of contenders, and on May 4, she’ll set her sights on The Diva of Tomorrow.

The matchup is a fascinating one for fans of Divas action. There are obvious parallels, such as the fact both competitors grew up in wrestling families. Tamina is the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka, while Paige learned the ropes in Norwich, England, from her parents, Ricky & Saraya Knight, before joining NXT.

Their trajectories in WWE, however, are far from analogous. Since debuting in May 2010, Tamina has repeatedly proven herself to be an intimidating bruiser. But in those four years, her pursuit of the Divas Championship — especially during AJ’s reign — has at times seemed passive, and she’s yet to capture the butterfly-emblazoned title.

Paige, on the other hand, became the youngest Divas Champion ever when she won the title in her very first WWE appearance. And although she looked downright meek in congratulating AJ on her WrestleMania victory, the reigning NXT Women’s Champion quickly revealed herself to be much more than a star-struck Diva-in-training as she rocked AJ with the Paige-Turner for the win.

Which journey to Extreme Rules will end in victory, Tamina’s gradual ascension or Paige’s dynamic rise? To find out, be sure to catch Extreme Rules when it airs on WWE Network and pay-per-view on Sunday, May 4, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Raw Five-Point Preview – April 14, 2014

The Diva of Tomorrow … today!

Who saw that coming? Last week, NXT Women’s Champion Paige made her Raw debut to congratulate AJ Lee on her unprecedented 295-day Divas Title reign, not knowing that just a few moments later, the British-born grappler would be the one to dethrone the ever-arrogant AJ and start a reign of her own. Goaded into a match by the cocky champion, the newcomer hit AJ with the Paige Turner to score the pinfall and the butterfly-emblazoned prize.

Although “The Diva of Tomorrow” celebrated with her fellow Divas in an emotional post-match WWE.com Exclusive, Paige’s resolve will continue to be put to the test as an entire division — including a bitter and vengeful AJ — will be looking to wrest her newly-won championship from her grasp.
