On this day in history, 5 years ago, Nikki Bella defended her title against Paige for what was supposed to be one last time. After Nikki nearly suffered a pinfall defeat via Paige’s signature RamPaige maneuver, the deceitful champion went out to ringside and swapped places with Brie, who was lying in wait underneath the ring.
Although Twin Magic proved effective in Paige and Nikki’s last Divas Championship clash on the June 1 edition of Raw, the raven-haired challenger turned the tables on Brie and scored a surprise pinfall on the replacement Bella. Caught, Brie revealed her deception to the referee, and in the confusion, Nikki ambushed Paige with a big right hand, following it up with a Rack Attack. With a three-count, Nikki secured her place on the throne once again, getting closer to breaking AJ Lee’s record.
