WWE write Paige off TV after attack from heel-turning Naomi

Published Add your comment

This week's episode of Raw live from London saw the UK's own Paige win the Divas battle royal to crown a new number one contender for the Divas Championship.

This match is now set to happen at Extreme Rules next Sunday as Paige looks to become a three time Divas Champion.

But after she was attacked by Naomi following the win, it looks like the British diva could be missing a few weeks with a story line injury.

Naomi turned heel after last nights match and attacked long time friend Paige and WWE announced that following this attack the former Champion has suffered internal injuries. 

WWE.com reported the following:

"Naomi’s attack on Paige following the Divas Battle Royal has left the No. 1 contender to the Divas Title injured."

"Though the specifics have yet to be confirmed, early reports suggest that Paige suffered internal injuries as a result of the attack, which saw The Diva of Tomorrow beaten outside the ring and thrown into the barricade repeatedly."

Real reason

The real reason for her absence is that Paige has to leave to begin filming Santa's Little Helper, a film that it was revealed she would be a part of last month.

She becomes only the second diva to appear in a WWE Studio's production following Summer Rae's successful stint in The Marine 4 - Moving Target. 

Big blow

This is a big blow to the Divas Division just a week after AJ Lee's retirement was announced, which means two of the biggest Divas in the WWE locker room will be missing at one of the most important times for WWE as they continue the fall out from Wrestlemania 31. 

The Nikki Bella/Brie Bella saga was expected to begin to allow there to be an ongoing feud, but Brie didn't play a part in the battle royal and was instead on commentary and once again nothing was teased between the twins. 

It is currently unknown if the match will be changed at Extreme Rules due to the "injury" but it has been speculated that someone else could face Nikki for the title if Paige is still out.

This leaves Naomi and Nikki as heels heading into the next few weeks, and if Paige is "injured" until next Sunday maybe now is the opportune time for Charlotte, Emma and Bayley to be brought up to the main roster and allowed to play a part in proceedings.
