Current WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella took to Instagram today to say that not only does she hope to continue her long reign as the face of the women's division on the main roster, she hopes some of the ladies down in NXT will make their way up for some "new competition."
"Today I will prepare and get into my zone as I take on two opponents at the Elimination Chamber tomorrow on the WWE Network. Almost 200 days as your Divas Champion. I hope to continue that reign, continue to make my reign and the Divas Division better. Wish I could put this title on the line every week to a new opponent. I hope to get new competition in our Divas Division soon with NXT Women on the rise. The future looks promising. Looks competitive. Looks tough. So happy to be apart of it. So happy for the challenges. 9 years in July I have been wrestling. There's nothing like being passionate about your craft. 9 years into it I am still trying to be better and better. Never settle. Always strive to be the best you... Even when you feel like you are there... Keep striving... There's always something you can work on. Stay Fearless."
As she mentions, Nikki defends the Divas championship against both Paige and Naomi in a triple threat match at tomorrow night's Elimination Chamber event at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas on the WWE Network. Since Paige's return, she's taken a bit of a backseat to the Paige-Naomi feud, so perhaps a call up from NXT would provide some fresh blood for her to break off and start a feud with.
