Naomi & Tamina def. The Bella Twins

BALTIMORE — Naomi threw Divas Champion Nikki Bella from the top rope to lead herself and Tamina to a victory against The Bella Twins at WWE Payback in the sold-out Royal Farms Arena.

Nikki and Brie have ruled the WWE Divas division since returning in 2013. Yet when Naomi united with her cousin-by-marriage Tamina in the weeks before WWE Payback 2015, the fierce Divas aimed to knock off the Divas division’s top family.

The Bellas showcased their teamwork quickly in the matchup, with a quick tag from Nikki to Brie followed by a seamless double-team slam to Naomi. After an emotional week that included her husband relinquishing the Intercontinental Championship, Brie rushed into the action with a flurry of shots. But a kick from Tamina into Brie’s back slowed The Bellas’ rush and allowed them to isolate her from bringing Nikki into the match.

When Brie managed to jump over Naomi and tag her sister back into the contest, it seemed as though momentum had swung back in the twins’ favor. Nikki left her opponents reeling with a devastating Alabama Slam to Nikki and a brutal forearm smash to Tamina.

A momentary distraction proved fatal for The Bellas, though. Nikki crushed Naomi with a spinebuster, then climbed to the top rope, where she paused for a moment to see Tamina toss Brie into the barricade. Naomi quickly capitalized, slamming Nikki off the top rope for the win.

Naomi and Tamina want to give the Divas division a makeover. With their decisive victory over The Bellas, they took a major step toward making it a reality.
