The WWE have officially added a new title match to SummerSlam 2014.
AJ Lee will take on Paige in the WWE Diva match just weeks after returning to the organization following an extended hiatus.
The move from Vince McMahon and co has been rumored for a while now, but with the official card updated to show the two female superstars scheduled to fight WWE fans are now certain to see the match up take place when SummerSlam gets underway August 16th.
The pair came head-to-head at last month's eagerly anticipated WWE pay-per-view 'Battleground', with AJ Lee defeating her British counterpart that night. As such, the SummerSlam showdown will be a chance for Paige to relinquish the title from her rivals grasp at the first time of asking.
Since their last meeting Paige has undergone a heel turn and it will be interesting to see how the latest development in her character alters the makeup of this intriguing match.
There is certainly no love loss between them, with Lee in particular participating in her fair share of trash talk since she won out at Battleground. Paige for her part has trodden a line somewhere between faux friend and mischievous enemy.
That rivalry was brought to a head at this week's SmackDown with Paige pushing AJ Lee out of the ring in a move that resulted in an injury for the latter Diva that was quickly diagnosed as a storyline injury.
Now, with the WWE's official release regarding the match up, we can see just what McMahon and his team of writers had it mind when the 'injury' came about.
SummerSlam itself is already lining up to be a huge event, with the now annual pay-per-view headlined by a WWE World Heavyweight Title Match between a returning Brock Lesnar and reigning champion John Cena.
Chris Jericho will also take on Bray Wyatt whilst Rusev will face Jack Swagger in a Flag Match.
Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella are also scheduled to fight in what will be a second highly interesting Diva match to light up the evenings entertainment.
With the Diva title bout announced today however, we can expect a further development between AJ Lee and Paige on this evening's Raw broadcast.
