WWE tried something different with their Divas division during this week's episode of Monday Night Raw which aired live from Tampa, Florida.
The new idea the company unveiled saw the members of Team PCB compete against one another in a Beat-the-Clock Challenge.
With the winner of the competition set to face Nikki Bella for the WWE Divas Championship at the Night of Champions pay-per-view event at the end of the month, there was the opportunity for several exciting matches.

The Beat-the-Clock method is one which, although it is great to watch during the odd episode of Raw, should not be used too often as it consists of several matches and therefore becomes repetitive.
With three matches announced for the night however, this was WWE's opportunity to showcase their Divas Division in the right way, but with the matches often seeming rushed and sloppy, it all but confirmed the lack of direction their creative team has for this division.
The first bout was between Team Bella's Alicia Fox and Team PCB's Becky Lynch. Despite Fox proving a tough competitor for Lynch, the luck of the Irish was present as Lynch fought back and eventually gained the victory with 3:21 on the clock.
Charlotte stands out
Although an undeniably quick match, Lynch's efforts were soon put down by Charlotte, who took on Brie Bella for the right to face her twin sister at the pay-per-view event on September 20.
Ric Flair's daughter took just 1:40 to beat Brie in what was a waste of a match. Instead of consisting of constant impressive in-ring talent, it consisted of one half of the Bella Twins repeatedly escaping the ring while the second ticked by.
Now knowing what she had to do, it was left to Paige to beat Charlotte's time for a shot at the WWE Divas Title but she certainly had a tough ask against Sasha Banks.
With this match ending poorly courtesy of a no-contest, the idea for this edition of Monday Night Raw undoubtedly did no favors for the Divas Division or WWE's writers at all.
Time for change
What could have been something memorable, and could have earned the Divas a longer amount of airtime, instead saw the company taking several steps back with regard to the Divas Revolution.
Perhaps we will see something more worthwhile when Charlotte looks to take down Nikki Bella at the Night of Champions pay-per-view event in a few weeks time.
Their match-up will take place just five days after Nikki will have broken AJ Lee's record of holding the Divas Title for the longest amount of time, which could suggest we already know the outcome of this match.
