The sexy, smart, and powerful women of the WWE, affectionately known as the WWE Divas, are finally getting some much-needed angles in recent weeks as evidence from last night’s RAW in Miami, Florida.
For years, Diva matches are mainly used as restroom and snack breaks for many members of the WWE Universe but not since the days of Trish Stratus and Lita have the Divas been involved in major storylines.
And so without further delay, let’s dissect two Divas feuds that will likely culminate in matches heading into SummerSlam on Sunday, August 17th in Los Angeles, California.
Brie Bella vs. Stephanie McMahon.
Ever since that fateful moment at last year’s SummerSlam when Triple H ruined Daniel Bryan’s championship moment, Triple H, along with his wife Stephanie McMahon formed The Authority. The Authority have made lives miserable for not only Bryan but also his wife, WWE Diva Brie Bella. As a result, McMahon has booked Brie’s sister Nikki in various handicap matches on RAW and SmackDown. Expect a Brie Bella versus Stephanie McMahon match heading into SummerSlam where if Brie wins, then she would get her job back after she “quit” at the Payback PPV last June. However, Nikki is expected to be the wild card into this match.
A.J. Lee vs. Paige
Paige had been Divas Champion before A.J. Lee made her unexpected return the RAW after Money in the Bank and defeated Paige to become new Divas Champion. At first, it seemed like a friendly rivalry until the RAW after Battleground when all of a sudden, the British Diva attacked Lee following their tag team match against Natalya and Emma. Look for this rivalry to continue at SummerSlam with the Divas title on the line.
