On this day in history, 5 years ago, Naomi challenged Nikki Bella for the Divas Championship at Extreme Rules. Although she ditched her nice girl mentality and forced herself into the No. 1 Contender’s spot, Naomi still came up short in her quest for the title thanks to some assistance from Brie Bella.
After several near falls, with Naomi nailing an inverted DDT, attempting a split-legged moonsault and nearly pinning Nikki for her first Divas Championship, The Bella Twin backed Naomi onto the ropes, where Brie was waiting with payback – a kick to Naomi’s face as the referee was distracted by Nikki. This allowed the Divas Champion to hit her opponent with a Rack Attack for the win!
