This past Monday Night, AJ Lee stood in the center of the ring with the WWE Divas Title in her possession for an unprecedented 295th day. As more than 15,000 members of the WWE Universe looked on in New Orleans with millions more across the globe, the Divas Champion was on cloud nine. Why wouldn't she be? The "Savior of the Divas Division" fended off 13 other challengers to leave WrestleMania 30 with her title intact. AJ's euphoria was a sharp contrast to the nervous jitters of the young lady about to saunter down the ramp. As the NXT Women's Champion, Paige is no stranger to confrontation … at NXT. But this was a different story and a much different arena. This was the flagship television show of WWE, Monday Night Raw, and Paige was about to make her first impromptu appearance. 

"I decided to throw caution to the wind and just do it," the new Divas Champion told WWE.com.

The rest, as they say, is history.  Paige attempted to congratulate AJ on her accomplishment, but AJ decided she would embarrass “The Diva of Tomorrow" for attempting to share the spotlight. In what might have been the biggest backfire of the year, Paige reversed the Black Widow to deliver the Paige Turner and capture the WWE Divas Championship on her first night.

"It still doesn't seem real. Sometimes I've gotta pinch myself just to make sure it is," Paige admitted.
