LOS ANGELES – At first glance, AJ Lee and Big E Langston might seem like something of an odd couple. The Divas Champion is a devilish vixen determined to rip apart her rivals emotionally and in the ring. Langston is a behemoth bred from the weight room, seeking destruction to cause around every turn. Despite their differences to the layman, the duo has cultivated a successful partnership throughout 2013. Yet inside the STAPLES Center, this “Felix and Oscar” combo succumbed to a Show Off and a Hybrid in a tag team battle filled with emotion.

For the first half of this year, Big E was Dolph Ziggler’s heavy, flanking the former Mr. Money in the Bank for months. But once Dolph dumped AJ, the vindictive ex countered by siccing the monstrous Langston on her former beau. Ziggler recruited Kaitlyn – AJ’s longtime best friend-cum-rival – to even the odds in a contentious situation fueled by heartbreak, revenge and the desire for victory.

It was speed versus muscle to start off the action, with Big E employing a series of power maneuvers, looking to dissect the former World Heavyweight Champion limb from limb. The impressively strong Langston even dragged Dolph to the corner of the ring, where Ziggler sustained a slap across the face from the erratic AJ.

The tables were turned, however, when the leader of the 8th Militia administered strength moves of her own. Kaitlyn seemed poised to remain in control, but AJ isn’t one to easily relent. The Divas Champion returned with a series of impressive neckbreakers, each more vicious than the last.

The action later moved to the floor at ringside, where Kaitlyn plowed through AJ with a spear that seemed to send the Divas Champion flying straight out of her Chuck Taylors. Back on the canvas, Langston laid out Ziggler with a devastating clothesline, but The Showoff wasn’t about to allow his opponent to show him up at The Biggest Party of the Summer.

Dolph, with his neon shades and bleach-blonde hair, seemed right at home in the shadow of Venice Beach and the Hollywood Hills. The dynamic fan favorite nailed a Zig Zag and pinned his former heavy to pick up the victory. But with neither Kaitlyn or AJ involved in the three-count, matters over the Divas Championship have been left unresolved. Ziggler, on the other hand, can only have one thing on his mind: refocusing his attention on once again becoming a World Champion.
