Divas Champion Nikki Bella def. Paige

COLUMBUS, Ohio – As determined as she is to create change within the Divas division, Paige was ultimately unable to unseat Nikki Bella as Divas Champion at Money in the Bank, where Twin Magic succeeded in keeping the prestigious prize in The Bella Twins’ clutches — but not  in the way you might think.

As the entire Divas locker room looked on, Paige used a varied arsenal of submission holds to bring the fight to the egotistical Nikki, whose championship reign had soared to 203 days since Brie helped her sister secure the title at Survivor Series the previous year. Brie was conspicuous in her absence earlier in the bout, leading many to believe that Nikki was out to prove that she didn’t need Twin Magic — Nikki & Brie’s referee-duping switcheroo routine — to turn back The Diva of Tomorrow. Alas, 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, proving that Paige’s desire for change is no match for the machinations of The Bella Twins.

Victorious, The Bella Twins proved that when it comes to Paige regaining the Divas Championship, the sinister sisters’ entrance music rings true: You can look, but you can’t touch.
