Night of Champions set to host triple-threat match for the Divas title

It seems that Stephanie McMahon's special announcement on tomorrow night's Smackdown will be that current Divas Champion Paige is set to defend her title in a triple-threat match against former champion AJ Lee and Nikki Bella.

Many thought the announcement would be a fatal-four way that included Nikki's estranged sister Brie Bella, but it seems instead Stephanie has chosen not to allow Brie a part in the match, which opens the door for an interference.

Nikki has held the divas title once before, back in 2012, but Brie actually lost the title on Nikki's behalf when the twins tried to pull of "Twin Magic" on Layla but it went wrong and Brie was pinned which resulted in Nikki losing her title.

Risky move

Whether or not Brie will cost her sister the title again will be a hot topic heading into Night of Champions in a few weeks time, but for WWE to give Nikki the title when Paige and AJ are having a feud that is dominating the division would be a risky move, especially when you consider the backlash the Bellas have received for their acting during their air time over the past few weeks. 

The Bella feud is set to continue until the end of Total Divas - which begins on Sunday night - and should play a main role throughout this third season.

It was the Total Divas bosses who asked for the feud to take place and so WWE are allowing it to run its course until the end of the current season. The show has never seen a divas champion take part, however, and it could be great for the ratings if Nikki was crowned divas champion in just over two weeks time.

No pushovers

But AJ Lee and Paige will be no pushovers themselves as they will be out to prove who is the craziest and who belongs on top of the divas division.

AJ Lee holds that title closer than any of the male superstars she has been positioned with throughout her time with the company and would do anything to become a three-time champion on September 21, but don't count out the current champion.

Paige was the inaugural NXT women's champion and won the divas championship at the first attempt, ending AJ Lee's record 295-day run. She will be all out to prove she is exactly where she deserves to be.
