Tonight's episode of Main Event featured a battle royal to determine the next number one contender to the Divas championship that Paige won by defeating AJ Lee on Raw two weeks ago. There were 10 participants, though AJ -- who you would think has a rematch coming like all WWE title losses -- was not one of them.
Tamina Snuka was, though, and she tore ass through the field that included Nikki Bella, Cameron, Naomi, Emma, Alicia Fox, Aksana, Eva Marie, Layla, and Natalya. In total, she eliminated five.
So, it will be Paige vs. Tamina for the Divas title at Extreme Rules on Sun., May 4, 2014, at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. From WWE.com:
Paige may have unwittingly backed her way into winning the Divas Championship from AJ Lee, but to keep hold of the Divas division's top prize, she'll have to survive a one-on-one contest with AJ's muscle, Tamina Snuka, at Extreme Rules.
After spending months in AJ's corner, helping the sinister skipper secure the longest Divas Championship reign in history, Tamina stepped out of the shadows on the April 15 edition of WWE Main Event to win a No. 1 Contender's Battle Royal. Her dominant display in the match bumped Tamina to the head of the line of contenders, and on May 4, she'll set her sights on The Diva of Tomorrow.
No word on where this leaves AJ, and the commentary team didn't do much in the way of making clear what's going on with her.
The updated card for Extreme Rules:
- John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt (Steel cage)
- Big E vs. Tournament winner (Intercontinental championship)
- Paige vs. Tamina (Divas championship)
