The Divas Division took a drastic turn at The Royal Rumble when Sasha Banks made her return and set her sights on the Divas Championship.

The fact that Sasha attacked both Becky Lynch and Charlotte before holding the title aloft meant that many fans have speculated that the three horse women could be set for a triple threat match at WrestleMania.

That being said, the plan for Fastlane was unclear, but various reports now suggest that Brie Bella will be the one offered the opportunity at this month's event.

Reports from Wrestlinginc.com state that Brie will be handed the opportunity at The Divas Championship after she defeated Charlotte last week on Raw to become the Number One Contender.

It is thought that WWE is attempting to cash in on the sympathy that the WWE Universe currently feel for her sister Nikki Bella after she recently underwent career-threatening surgery.

The longest reigning Divas Champion has been sidelined since her match against Charlotte back at Survivor Series and it was thought that Nikki could have been set to retire from WWE if her recent surgery wasn't a success.

Luckily doctors have said that the surgery was as successful as it possibly could have been and now Nikki should be ready to return to WWE after a lengthy rehabilitation process. 

BRIE AS CHAMPION?

It is highly unlikely that WWE will allow Brie to capture the Divas Championship. Instead, this looks like it could be used as a way for Becky and Sasha to run in and attack Charlotte, as a reminder that they are coming for the title to set up a match at April's showcase. 

Sasha and Becky are likely to be in action the same night as well after the implosion of Team BAD over the past week. Sasha was on the receiving end of what seems to be jealousy from her former friends and in the wake of this, it seems a new alliance has been formed.

Sasha and Becky worked together during their time in NXT and since have gone their separate ways on the main roster, but now they have finally been brought back together and look set to be facing Naomi and Tamina in tag team action. 

As much as this looks like a filler event because WrestleMania is right around the corner, it does seem that the creative team have thought about this and it could actually be an on-going storyline.
