WrestleMania 31 Preview: AJ Lee and Paige vs The Bella Twins

Published 2 Comments

As the current WrestleMania 31 card stands there is only one divas match announced where AJ Lee and Paige team up to take on Nikki and Brie Bella.

There had already been rumours that Paige and AJ Lee were to team up at WrestleMania and in recent weeks the match had been made official once AJ Lee returned to Monday Night Raw to save Paige from a beat down courtesy of The Bella Twins.


For weeks the divas Champion Nikki and her twin sister Brie continued to torment and get the better of Paige and after weeks of borderline bullying and using deceitful tactics, she couldn’t manage to dethrone the champion and Nikki Bella continues to hold the gold.

The return of AJ Lee couldn’t have come at a better time for Paige and for the WWE Universe, there was no way she was going miss WrestleMania and having her combine her talent with Paige creates a great tag team match for WrestleMania 31.

The chemistry is clearly there between the four women, The Bella Twins are doing a good job as the top female heels in the business whilst Paige and AJ Lee’s previous battles also play a big part in the build-up to this match, so fans should expect a solid tag team match at The Showcase of the Immortals.

The ‘#GiveDivasAChance’ movement spread like a wildfire across the internet not so long ago and it’s clear that the WWE are investing a lot into this match with the build-up and hopefully all of that pays off at such a grand stage but I do think the WWE could have done a lot more in regards to giving the divas a bigger chance especially at WrestleMania.

It’s quite strange to see that the WWE are opting not to go with a Divas Championship match at WrestleMania as all four of the divas would have loved to be a part of a championship match with something on the line and the fans would have been engaged in a triple threat or even a fatal four way match for the championship because it’s not something we see a lot at WrestleMania. But having any match at WrestleMania is better than watching from the back and watch the others have thousands and thousands of eyes on them.

We’re used to seeing the majority of the divas thrown into a match which adds very little value to the night in general and even though the tag team match between the two teams will be a good match; I still believe a title match would have certainly been the preferred option by many fans and maybe even the competitors themselves.

This supposed movement should apply to every single diva the WWE has under contract not just the four involved in the match, it's strange to see that the WWE haven't announced another divas match for the night even if it is for a short while as it doesn't get any better than performing at a stage like WrestleMania so I do think the WWE should - and they probably will - announce another divas match to give a couple of the lucky divas a feel of what WrestleMania brings.


I think this is the best chance the divas will have to show the WWE Universe just what they are capable of, even though the likes of Naomi and Natalya aren’t included in a match right now, the WWE have four of their best divas in a tag team match and given the right amount of time this could be one of the better main roster divas matches in quite a while.

Fans are firmly behind Paige and AJ Lee as they are arguably the more entertaining and better inside of the ring but right now Nikki and Brie Bella have the edge going into WrestleMania.

They’ve picked up a number of wins over AJ Lee and Paige in recent weeks and with Nikki being the champion it would be difficult to go against the champion losing and they probably do need the win more than AJ Lee and Paige.

Nikki might hold the Divas Championship but the fact that AJ and Paige are known to be far superior in the ring is a big factor, and if The Bella Twins can defeat them at WrestleMania it would establish them as the top divas on the roster.
