EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.— Less than a month since her stunning WWE debut win over AJ Lee — breaking the Black Widow’s record-long title reign of 295 days — Paige put the Divas Championship on the line against AJ’s former bodyguard, Tamina. Despite numerous successful showings since her historic victory on the April 7 edition of Raw, the raven-haired Diva’s Extreme Rules title defense marked her toughest test yet.

The challenger for the coveted title, who overcame nine other Divas in a dominating display on WWE Main Event to become the No. 1 contender, has demonstrated an imposing in-ring arsenal that makes it seem inevitable that we will one day witness the second-generation Diva holding the butterfly-emblazoned title. However, that day wasn’t May 4 at Extreme Rules.

The Divas Champion began the highly-anticipated contest with a flurry of high impact maneuvers to her intimidating challenger, but it didn’t take long for AJ’s former bodyguard to take control of the bout. The No. 1 contender continued to control the contest using her size and strength, delivering one dominating move after another.

The youngest Divas Champion ever was not about to give in; however, as the tenacious titleholder mounted a gritty comeback, trading blows with her much larger opponent. In the end, the Divas Champion’s intense, in-your-face in-ring attack proved to be more than her formidable foe could handle. When the opportunity presented itself, Paige locked in her trademark modified Scorpion Crosslock submission, forcing Tamina to tap.

With a history-making introduction and successful WWE pay-per-view debut in the books, what does the “Diva of Tomorrow” have in store for the WWE Universe next?
