Today In History: Naomi Turns Heel (April 13, 2015)

On this day in history, 5 years ago, eight women competed in a #1 Contender Battle Royal to determine Nikki Bella’s challenger. One Diva in particular wasn’t too happy when her seemingly preordained spot as the next woman up didn’t pan out. It was Naomi, who had pinned the champion twice and went into the melee as the heavy favorite, only to get superkicked out of the ring by Paige in the nail-biting conclusion of the Battle Royal. She wasn’t happy. In fact, Naomi crashed Paige’s post-match interview, beating her down until a referee intervened to call her off. Naomi ended up getting a match at Extreme Rules, but came up short once again. In fact, she would wait for 2 more years to finally taste the gold.
