Today In History: AJ Lee Wins #1 Contender’s Battle Royal (April 22, 2013)

On this day in history, 7 years ago, AJ Lee outsmarted 4 other Divas in a Battle Royal to become a new #1 Contender for Kaitlyn’s Divas Championship. Pretty impressive considering Tamina Snuka knocked AJ out cold with a superkick at the bout’s beginning, leaving her lifeless  in the ring until Layla had outlasted Aksana, Tamina and Naomi to bring the battle down to a two-woman show. But AJ quickly flipped the script on Layla, springing up from her possum act to kick the former Divas Champion through the ropes and officially staking her claim to her former friend’s title.
