On this day in history, six years ago, Naomi faced off AJ Lee in a singles match, fresh off of her eye injury. Still sporting her instantly iconic eyepatch, the Funkadactyl proved she hadn’t lost a single step, throwing a pair of dropkicks against the irreverent champion. Naomi’s offense was so intense that AJ left the match altogether, handing her foe the count-out win.
And that’s when Vickie Guerrero arrived to make things interesting: Still smarting over the champion’s comments towards her on SmackDown, the blue brand General Manager announced a Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational for WrestleMania, where AJ would defend her title against every Diva on the roster, including Tamina. AJ certainly wasn’t pleased with the decision, but ultimately – she got the last laugh.
