On this day in history, five years ago, Paige stepped into the ring with Nikki Bella again, this time with AJ Lee by her side. Since the Divas title wasn’t going to be defended at WrestleMania, Nikki gave Paige a title shot in an attempt to divide and conquer the team of Freaks and Geeeks. And it almost cost her the match.
With Nikki in a daze, Brie attempted to pull her sister to safe harbor, but AJ evened the odds and cut Brie Mode off before it could even rev up. In her excitement, however, The Black Widow blasted Paige in the face with an accidental elbow and Nikki pounced with a quite deliberate one, following up with the Rack Attack to win the title. A two-on-one attack of their WrestleMania opponents wasn’t even necessary; Paige swarmed AJ after the match in frustration, leaving their partnership on some very, very shaky ground.
