AJ Lee vs. Eva Marie
Paige is at ringside to watch the match. To start off, Eva shoves AJ and catches her with a dropkick, then she throws her outside and slams her into the turnbuckles when she reenters the ring. Eva clotheslines her and whips her in the corner, but AJ kicks her in the face and goes for a sleeperhold, but Eva slams her into the turnbuckles. AJ keeps the hold applied so Eva goes for a side slam, but AJ counters with the Black Widow for the submission win. Paige enters the ring, claps and congratulates AJ, then leaves.
Winner: AJ Lee
Paige vs. Cameron
Cameron attacks early, but Paige knees her a few times and hits the Paige Turner for the win. Naomi gets in Paige’s face and Cameron attacks her, but Naomi tries to separate them and gets shoved into Paige by her partner. Paige gets mad and shoves her and Cameron back, then they have a less than friendly staredown before Paige leaves.
Paige vs. Tamina Snuka
They lock up and Paige actually wins the trade, backing her opponent into a corner and throwing rights and lefts. Alicia Fox comes out and starts taking selfies with some of the fans, and Tamina takes advantage of the distraction to turn the champion inside-out with a clothesline. Tamina with headbutts as Fox picks up the Divas Championship and parades around ringside with it. Paige yells at her, and then turns into a superkick; somehow she kicks out at two. Paige gains some momentum back with a few clotheslines, and counters a Samoan Drop into a Paige Turner. She locks in the PTO for the submission win.
They air a Paige vignette, showing her win over AJ Lee and becoming Divas Champion. We get highlights from Paige’s interview with Michael Cole. Paige says that she was feeling so many emotions – happy, overwhelmed, excited, shocked. She says that she deserves it after training for such a long time. Paige mentions that the flood gates opened when she walked back through the curtain when she won the title and made her dream a reality. She says that she doesn’t care if people see her in that emotional state, because it shows how much it means to her and how passionate she is. She doesn’t want people to underestimate her. Paige knows she has a target on her back, but she promises that none of the other Divas will take her title. We see Tamina Snuka winning the Battle Royal and becoming the #1 Contender. Paige mentions that she is confident, yet a little bit petrified. She says that she has seen how hard Tamina works, but she isn’t going to be intimidated. Paige is gonna go in all guns blazing, and even if Tamina beats her half to death, she will still walk out Divas Champion.
