-AJ’s music hits and she skips out from the back Divas Title around her waist smiling wide (AJ is wearing an amazing brand new custom cut of her new “Till Your Last Breath” long sleeve shirt, along with blue jean short shorts, her AJ knee socks and wrist bands and her grey Chuck wrestling boots to match her shirt). AJ skips confidently to the ring and takes her Title off and kisses it before getting into the ring. AJ raises her Divas title high for all to see in the ring smiling proudly and then she cutely cradles it like her baby (which to AJ it is) before Paige’s music hits. Paige comes out with Alicia Fox as a replay is shown of how a distraction by Paige cost AJ a match to Alicia on this past RAW. AJ stands against the ropes holding her Divas Title close as Paige enters the ring and when they lock eyes AJ smiles a confident smile at Paige. The ref raise the Title high to signify that this is a Divas Championship match and Alicia exits the ring. Now we are ready to go.
WWE Divas Championship Match: WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee Vs Paige (w/ Alicia Fox)
The two Divas circle and lock-up, Paige with a headlock on AJ to start, AJ fights out with some punches and sends Paige into the ropes, but Paige hits her with a shoulder block. Paige comes off the ropes again, but this time AJ slides under and comes back off the ropes herself with a clothesline. AJ hits a nice roll-up pin attempt as an “AJ Lee” crowd chant starts (that is happening a lot lately), but Paige kicks out at 1. AJ Paige get’s up and hits AJ with a kick to the midsection and sends her off the ropes, but AJ jumps up and spins Paige down with a hurricanrana, Paige pops back to her feet, but AJ jumps and wraps her legs around Paige’s waist and rolls her up with an even more nifty pin, but Paige kicks out at 2. AJ grabs Paige by the hair and skips bit dragging her around before sending her into the ropes and nailing her with her signature Spinning Heel kick. Paige rolls out the ring to try and regroup on the outside. AJ won’t let her rest though as she follows her outside and tosses her back first into the side of the ring, Alicia Fox tried to attack AJ from behind, but AJ spots her and hits a Thesz press on her and pummels her instead.
AJ tries to follow Paige back into the ring now, but Paige gets back out of it on the other side. AJ follows her out again and jumps on her and punches her, but Paige has AJ caught in her arms so she rams AJ’s back into the barricade. Paige keeps a hold of AJ’s legs and swings her hard in Barricade and then she swings AJ the other way a full revolution into the barricade yet a third time to take control. Paige gets back into the ring and does some bootleg skipping as the ref counts at AJ who is still down on the outside. Paige does not want a count out win though so she goes and get’s AJ and tosses her back into the ring. Paige grabs a down AJ’s hair and hits her with some headbutts and then she bootleg skips some more around the down AJ before screaming “My house” to the crowd as Alicia Fox cheers her on. Paige tosses AJ into the corner and kicks her in the midsection before backing into AJ and hitting a series of back elbows on her. AJ falls to a sitting position now in the corner and Paige stomps her several times before draping AJ over the middle rope and nailing her with a series of knees to her body from the ring apron. Paige does her patented scream before getting in the ring and trying a cover on AJ, but AJ kicks out at two.
Paige grabs a sitting AJ’s and arms put her knee into her back with a stretch, the fans get behind AJ and cheer her as she struggles back to her feet, but Paige knees her in the midsection and then tosses AJ in another corner and does the same back-up back elbow strikes on AJ as before. However, unlike before Paige steps away for a moment due to the Ref counting and when she tries to charge back in AJ get’s her knees up and knocks Paige away, before knocking her down with a double boot kick to the back to fight her way out of the corner. AJ charges Paige and hits a Thesz press on Paige now and pummels her a bit. Paige tosses AJ off and struggles up into a corner, but AJ meets her with a corner splash and follows that up with a nice neckbreaker. AJ hits a spinning back kick to Paige’s gut, but when she comes off the ropes Paige floors AJ with a Yakuza kick. Paige goes for a pin, but AJ kicks out again. Paige looks to go for the RAMPaige DDT, but AJ counters out of it with an wristlock escape into a back kick to Paige’s gut. AJ goes up the middle rope and as Paige gets close AJ plants her with a very nice Tornado DDT and goes for a pin, 1… 2… kickout by Paige.
AJ is breathing heavy now, Alicia Fox slams the mat ringside trying to get Paige back on her feet. AJ pulls Paige up to her feet, but Paige kicks AJ in her midsection and tries to whip her to the ropes, but AJ holds on to the arm and reverses jumping into a standing guillotine choke hold pulling back hard, Paige powers out of the move though and even holds AJ in her arms as she bootleg skips around a bit before hitting a fall away slam. AJ rolls out of the ring must to Paige’s dismay, Paige follows and tosses AJ into the barricade again. She then gets up on top of the barricade and looks to suplex AJ into the crowd no less, But Paige never seems to fully find her footing and AJ recovers and sweeps Paige’s legs out from under her and Paige’s back and head hit the top of the barricade wall before crashing down to the ringside floor. AJ scrambles back into the ring as the Ref reaches a 7 count, Alicia Fox fearing Paige with be counted out grabs her and tosses her back into the ring, but Paige is still very dazed from that hard falls and AJ easily spins around Paige right into her Black Widow submission finisher. AJ smiles knows she has got her and Paige quickly taps out to it giving AJ a hard fought victory.
WINNER and STILL Divas Champion: AJ Lee
After the match AJ releases the hold and smiles out at Alicia and laughs knows that she just beat the numbers game. The Ref raises AJ’s arm in victory and then gives AJ her Divas Title belt and raises it again as AJ holds her Divas Title up high in her other arm. AJ hugs her Divas Title and skips out of the ring, but not before blowing Paige a kiss. Alicia shouts “NO!” at the top of her lungs and then enters the ring where Paige begins to recover. AJ skips happily out of the arena her “baby” hugged to her tight. Alicia shouts out at AJ “You still suck!” from the ring angry (Pfft, yeah right, lol). Paige is no up though and she has rage in her eyes as she looks at Alicia, in fact as Alicia turns around Paige slaps her across the face hard and yells at her “It’s your fault!” Alicia is shocked and paige leaves the ring yelling back at Alicia “I hate you!” as Alicia looks back at her mouth agasp as the segment ends.
Andrew’s Editor Notes:
Well I thought I smelled an AJ win and Title defense coming at this PPV and sure enough that is just what happened. It was a great match for AJ where she really got to pull off some cool moves too, a hurricanrana (which is quickly becoming a new signature move) and even a nice Tornado DDT. Oh and don’t even get me started on how amazing her new custom long sleeve “Till Your Last Breath Shirt” looked, in a word it was Epic.
Still this was of course for the Divas Title and AJ keep her “Baby” right where it belongs around her washboard abs adorned waist. This also looks to be the end of a very long and strong AJ/Paige feud, at least for now. This was Paige’s rematch for her Title loss back at Night Of Champions and she lost, so that seems to be her last chance, at least for now. That means there is a whole bunch of things way up in the air ring now for AJ and Paige. For Paige it’s fairly clear that she blames Alicia for her loss (even though if Alicia did not toss her back into the ring she would have lost by count out anyway). That means a very likely Paige/Alicia feud now.
As for AJ though, that is almost impossible to predict. We could see a possible NXT call-up, though it seems to soon for Charlotte since she still holds the NXT Women’s Title, and I don’t see anybody else coming up right now either. That leaves a pretty dry pool, unless Tamina makes a surprise return and turns on her former employer AJ. That is what I would prefer at the moment, but who knows if that is possible yet? there is also the slight chance that this AJ/Paige feud is not over, but IMO it seems like it is for now. I guess we will just have to wait and see tomorrow on RAW just whom will step up to Challenge our Total Package Divas Champ next, till then AJ Fans, laters. -Andrew (@WPack911 on Twitter)
