-Paige’s music hits and she comes out still mocking AJ by skipping to the ring (poorly skipping), as a replay is shown of her attack on AJ last week. Paige get’s into the ring and talks about how she wants to set the record straight and that she still thinks of AJ as her best friend (obviously being facetious). Paige goes on to talk about that when she attacked AJ last week she did not think of her as her friend, but rather as someone that took her Title. Paige then promises to never act the way she did last week ever again (more obvious fake talk here too).At this moment our Divas Champion AJ Lee’s music hits, she skips down to the ring (showing Paige what REAL skipping looks like). AJ get’s into the ring wearing a cool white top with a black skull with wings on it that looks like it says “Holy Hell Bombshell” on it, lol. AJ also wears tight blue jean short shorts, cool black and white Chuck high top shoes and he new devil heart ribcage necklace from WWE Shop.
AJ gets a huge pop from the crowd (which is always awesome) and she begins to speak to Paige saying “Oh Paige… Paige, Paige. Paige. My Sweet young Casper looking crumpet (lol), do you really think anybody here is buying…”. Paige interrupts AJ and AJ is not happy about it, AJ get’s into Paige’s face and sternly says “I wasn’t finished talking!”. AJ stares right into Paige’s eyes with anger, Paige gives AJ the floor and AJ continues speaking saying “I get it Paige. I get why you’re mad. I know exactly what it feels like to have this Divas Title (which AJ has on her shoulder) that you worked for your entire life taken away from you in an instant. You did that to me Paige, but if you wanna be like me and you want to come out her and skip around, then be like me! I don’t play little girl games, I don’t smile in front of someone and whisper behind their back. If I have a problem with you, if I don’t like you, if I want to talk crap about you, it’s gonna be to your face.” and AJ says this while getting VERY close to Paige’s face to drive her point home. Paige tries to speak, but AJ knocks the mic away from her mouth and finishes her statement saying “…Like a REAL woman!”.
Paige begins to talk now AJ still right in her face, Paige claims that she is AJ’s real friend and if AJ does not believe it then she must be “crazy” (Uh-oh, you just say that work that must never be spoken Paige). AJ reacts how you would expect to the uttering of the “C” word, she looks to have gone from angry to REALLY angry now and ask paige that classic question “What did you just call me?!”. Paige tries to back peddle, saying she is sorry and that she did not mean to call AJ that, but she does it in a fake way yet again saying that she would never make fun of AJ’s “mental health”. AJ is positively seething now. However in an instant AJ seems to flip a switch and she smiles wide and says “I get it! No, No I understand. It was a mistake, it happens to the best of us. You spoke and you acted without thinking, it happens to all of us, even those of us that are just a little a bit off their rockers…” AJ looks at Paige and (of course) AJ jumps her tackling her down and pummeling Paige with shots and then screaming in anger before tossing Paige outside the ring!
AJ follows Paige outside, and rams Paige’s back hard into the barricade. AJ looks to toss Paige into the Steel steps, but Paige jumps on and get’s over them. AJ then runs and jumps on the steps looking like she might do a flying clothesline off of them, however Paige backs away out of range screaming for AJ to “calm down” (yeah right Paige, cause you don’t feel like getting your ass handed to you tonight). AJ stares down Paige from on top of the steel steps with pure anger in her eyes as Paige backs away up the entrance ramp. AJ then gets into the ring and gets her Divas Title and holds it high in the air screaming at Paige “You want this Paige?!”, AJ then put the Divas Title on in the ring in front of her and screams and motion at Paige to “Come and get it!” (Like the bad ass Champion AJ is!). Paige keeps her BS up on the ramp talking about how they are “supposed to be friends” (give it up already), as AJ stands tall in the ring as her music hits, her Divas Title in front of her as she stares down the cowardly Paige whom backs her way to the top of the entrance ramp in retreat as the segment ends.
Andrew’s Editor Notes:
It’s fair to say it’s fully on now! I mean despite Paige continuing her BS we should be friends BS that nobody is buying (least of all AJ) for no apparent reason it’s still really truely on now. Bad Ass “come and get it” Face AJ Vs cowardly lying Heel Paige. Paige has already lit the fire in AJ last week, but she threw fuel on that fire this week when she called her the dreaded “C” word (well the dreaded C word for AJ, lol), and boy did it show as AJ attacked Paige and sent her packing back up the ramp in retreat.
AJ is not only not buying Paige’s BS “friend” crap, in fact she is now flat-out tired of it, and is ready to lay a serious beatdown on Paige for it. Also, the mic work tonight was great. Paige is not the best on the mic, but she at least ok, but AJ once again really made the segment by hitting every bit of the mic work expertly, both in acting and delivery.
On a side note it was also great to see AJ dressed down a bit in street type clothes instead of her ring gear. It’s been a while since we have seen that, and it made me remember back in the day when AJ wore all kinds of cool outfits and shirts to the ring, before she had her own WWE shirts and such. Well not much more analysis that can be done about tonight, just have to see where it goes from here. See you next time all, laters! -Andrew (@WPack911 on Twitter)
