WWE SummerSlam 2014: AJ Lee vs. Paige rematch official

Earlier today, WWE officially announced that AJ Lee will defend her Divas championship against Paige at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) on Sun., Aug. 17, 2014, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.


Mere days after Paige shoved Divas Champion AJ Lee off the SmackDown stage, has learned the two fierce competitors will meet in a title rematch at SummerSlam.

The championship bout will mark the newest chapter in the steadily intensifying conflict between The Black Widow and The Diva of Tomorrow. After trading the butterfly-emblazoned title, AJ and Paige met in a rubber match at WWE Battleground. Unlike their first two encounters, both of which ended in the blink of an eye, their WWE Battleground match was a highly competitive, back-and-forth contest narrowly won by AJ.

They ran an injury angle to help build this feud on SmackDown last week, with AJ doing a stretcher job after Paige pushed her off the ramp near the stage. You know, even though she landed on her feet.

Expect something more for Monday Night Raw later on this evening.

Here's the updated SummerSlam match card and line-up:

- John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar (WWE world heavyweight championship)
- Stephanie McMahon vs. Brie Bella
- Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt
- Rusev vs. Jack Swagger
- AJ Lee vs. Paige
