Payback pay-per-view gets updated card

The second pay-per-view following WrestleMania, Payback, is two days away and now it seems the final card for the event has taken shape. 

In possibly the least shocking turn of events, the divas match for Sunday night has finally been announced and sees Naomi and Tamina Snuka take on The Bella Twins.

Much like WrestleMania, it seems the creative team have decided that instead of putting the Divas Championship on the line, it would make more sense to have a divas tag team match, presumably for bragging rights. 

Naomi and Tamina are running on the idea that they are now a family and they are there to show the Bella's what they can do. They are probably the best fit as a tag team in the entire divas division and since her heel hurn, Naomi is on a roll and looks to have the number of The Bella Twins. 

It is worth noting that many of the WWE Universe presume Paige could play a part on Sunday, the latest is that Paige will be busy filming until mid-June and so won't make her return until perhaps Money in the Bank. That means that Sunday will see a straightforward tag team match between the four divas.

It is interesting to note that this is the third pay-per-view this year that has had a divas tag team match instead of the traditional one-on-one championship match after The Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. There is a feeling that WWE could be taking a leaf out of TNA's book and could be thinking of bringing in a Divas Tag Team Championship. 

Any plans?

This would be a great way to #GiveDivasAChance, but as of yet there is no official word on the future of the division. There is also the potential to, much like TNA, allow the Divas Championship itself to be defended in a tag team match where the person who makes the pin wins the championship. 

This has the ability to create heat between the Bella Twins because Brie could be pinned to lose her sister the title, much like a few years ago when Brie and Nikki's twin magic went wrong and Brie lost Nikki the Divas Championship to Layla. 

Either way, this looks a likely route for WWE to take, with all the new talent coming up from NXT and divas like Rosa Mendes, Emma, Summer Rae, Eva Marie, Natalya, Cameron and when she returns from filming, Paige, all waiting in the wings to be a part of the division, it makes sense to make the division more competitive.
