I’ll be the first one to admit that when AJ made her return to Raw and defeated Paige for the Divas championship neatly 3 weeks ago I was far from happy. The fan in me clouded my judgement and I was over the top angry. I refused to listen to anything positive about the decision but today as I write this as a women and say “I was wrong and my crew member Trevor was right”
He said “I believe this is a way to bring out the anti diva in Paige” and after last night boy was he dead on. Last night on Raw there was a tag match that featured the team of AJ & Paige vs Natalya & Emma. Just by throwing those four together we knew it was going to be a good one, but it’s what happened after the match that has everyone talking.
AJ of corse picked up the win for her team via submission by black widow to Natalya, and as always her “buddy” Paige was there to celebrate with the champ. After Paige raised AJ’s hand in victory & AJ went to walk away Paige pulled AJ by the hair sending the back of her head into the canvas.
This was followed by vicious headbuts to AJ. Oh no but the anti diva wasn’t done there. She then tossed AJ like a sack of potatoes outside the ring, once outside the ring Paige throws AJ into the barricade. At one point Paige even told the crowd “you’re going to love this” which was followed by Paige sending AJ face first into the ring post.
It wasn’t over there because the raven haired women then took AJ and threw her over the announcers table which is where she screamed “I told you this is my house now!!” (That was probably my favorite part of the segment by the way,
Them to add insult to injury Paige does AJ’s infamous skip up the ramp and motions to her waist as if she wants the title. Overall this segment had me loosing my shit. I absolutely loved it and I know that no matter how long this feud goes its going to be a GREAT one.
Both ladies have their own strengths. In my opinion Paige is better in the ring then AJ and AJ is better on the mic then Paige. I think this feud will allow them to bounce off each other and ultimately make then both better competitors. With all that being said I may not be a AJ fan anymore but kudos to her for taking some pretty nasty bumps last night.
Seriously though these two work so well together that I can damn well guarantee you that what we are about to see from these two is going to be pure magic and quite possibly give us the type of feud we’ve been craving since the Trish & Lita days.
