Nikki Bella is now officially the second longest reigning Divas Champion in history after she surpassed Maryse's record earlier this week.
She now only trails AJ Lee's record that was set at 295 days last year.
This week Nikki Bella was at Wizard Comic Con and, as part of a Q and A session, she talked about unifying the Divas and NXT Championships.
“I would love to square off with Sasha Banks,” said Nikki. “Champ vs. champ, WWE Divas Champ vs. NXT Champ. (Kevin Owens and John Cena) beat us to it, I was so pissed. Hopefully after their run, we can have a run.”
Brie added, “Charlotte, Bayley Sasha — there’s a lot of good ones down there [in NXT].”
The Divas Division was referred to as being in "turmoil" on Smackdown and it certainly does seem like the division is losing its relevance.
Jim Ross talked about it a few weeks ago and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. Nikki Bella has been one of the worst Divas Champions in the titles history, given that she has only won her title matches because of help from her sister and her promo ability isn't any better than the Divas who are being forced to lose to her week after week.
The new Team Bella formation at least makes it look like WWE are trying to add something to the division but since Paige has had more Divas Championship shots that she deserves in recent weeks, it doesn't seem like it is moving forward.
It's obvious Charlotte is heading to the main roster soon and she will join Paige's team against The Bellas, which means that it would still be a long time until we see the likes of Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch on the main roster.
The Divas Division of NXT is gaining attention all over the world for all the right reasons whilst the main roster is doing the opposite thing. Eva Marie looks like she is set to join the NXT Women soon as well and given the trailers that have been airing on NXT as of late, she looks like she could be a force to be reckoned with.
Eva opted to go and train with Brian Kendrick to become a more complete superstar and with the exception of her current mic skills, she looks like she could further fire up the divas division and take Charlotte's place when she makes the transition.
Whilst unifying the titles would be a good idea for Nikki, it wouldn't make any sense right now because the NXT divas are so far ahead of the main roster women so if the titles were to be unified, it would be Sasha holding the title at the end of it.
