WWE Diva Paige has admitted the Divas Revolution was starting to get stale before she delivered her pipebomb promo last week on Raw.
The Divas Revolution has had its ups and downs since it was introduced before the Battleground pay-per-view last July. The former Divas Champion realized the revolution was starting to get stale and she wanted to take it in a new direction.
Last week on Raw, she delivered a pipebomb promo which was greatly appreciated by the WWE Universe and the live crowd with cheers, despite the fact she was coming off as a heel. The fans were glad that Paige had recognized things needed to be changed.

She said to Channel Guide Magazine, according to NoDQ: “I felt like the whole ‘Divas Revolution’ thing started to get stale. I thought it definitely needed a kick in the ass a little bit. Vince [McMahon] and our writers were so cool with the promo. They definitely gave me the freedom to say what I wanted. I kept it as tame as possible. I wanted to go a little bit harder, but I thought, ‘Nah, I’ll save it.’
“It was definitely an adrenaline rush. I wanted to be the bad guy and am happy to be the bad guy. I don’t mind being hated. But the crowd was so receptive to it and great. They were cheering most of it. I was like, ‘No, that’s not the way it was supposed to be.’ It was great. I was very nervous before doing it. I just wanted to get out there and kick some butt and light a fire under the ‘Divas Revolution’ again.”

“I feel like that a ‘Pipe Bomb,’ or ‘Paige Bomb’ as I call it, is what was needed. Now a team has split up and everyone is going for everyone, which is great. I’m looking forward to seeing where everyone else goes.”
Not telling a story
She explained her reasons for doing the pipebomb promo; it was due to the fact she felt the Divas weren't telling a story.
She said: “It was cool the first couple of nights with the NXT girls coming up. It was something new and fresh. Then we kind of went back to this stale state of having tag matches. We weren’t telling a story. Where was this going? With the whole Charlotte and Nikki [Bella] story, it was similar to me and Nikki. People were complaining about that.”
Paige is right, people were complaining about how stale the Divas Revolution had got in such a short amount of time for a story that had so much hype surrounding it. And while her pipebomb promo may have saved it for one week, it felt like it was buried once again last night on Raw.
