Tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw from the O2 Arena in London, England saw a Divas battle royal to become number one contender to Nikki Bella's title. That battle royal did not feature Brie Bella after all, but did see Paige outlast Naomi, who had appeared to be the favorite, to continue the issues between the top two Divas on the roster.
So it's set: Paige will challenge Nikki for the Divas championship at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV) on Sun., April 26, 2015, at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
The good news here is Naomi turned heel after losing in the battle royal and considering she will be rejoining the cast of Total Divas for the upcoming season, it's not out of line to think she will be in the title picture sooner rather than later.
And hey, while we wait for fresh blood at the top Paige vs. Nikki isn't the worst match-up, right?
Here's the updated Extreme Rules match card:
- Seth Rollins vs. Randy Orton (WWE championship)
- John Cena vs. Rusev (US championship)
- Daniel Bryan vs. Bad News Barrett (Intercontinental championship)
- Nikki Bella vs. Paige (Divas championship)
