Right now, it seems like every member of the WWE Universe has a different opinion on the Diva's division.
Nikki Bella has just broken AJ Lee's record and become the longest reigning Diva's Champion of all time but there are some Amongst the fans who are happy and some who are disgruntled about it.
Handed the record?
Some feel that Bella was handed the record as an act of spite against the previous holder AJ Lee - the wife of famously disgruntled former WWE star CM Punk.

There are those who feel that Bella has not been a good champion given that she didn't defend her title at any of the marquee PPVs so far this year.
The Royal Rumble, WrestleMania and Summer Slam all went by without a Diva's Championship match and it has certainly angered the WWE Universe.
Everyone is under the impression that Bella breaking the record was done as a shot to both Lee and Punk and that is the question that was posed to two time Diva's Champion Paige.
At a Q&A session at the Wizard World Comic Con in San Jose, CA, Paige was asked if she thought that Bella's record was a shot at CM Punk and she had a fairly interesting answer.
"Oh, I don’t think so. Don’t get me involved in this! I don’t need that heat, brother ... I don’t know. I have no idea. I don’t get involved in that crap.” - Paige's controversial response
First of all claiming that she doesn't need 'that heat' suggests that the issue is still a hot topic within WWE and possibly that superstars are being told not to discuss it in public?
Secondly, Paige claims that she doesn't get involved in that crap and that once again leaves the handling of delicate issues within WWE open to interpretation.
Another one to come?
Lee and Punk both held the records for the longest reigns of the Diva's and WWE Championships and while Lee's is gone, Punk's still stands tall.
Current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins has held the title since WrestleMania XXXI and there are some who feel that he could be used to achieve a similar goal to Bella.
Rollins will have a long way to go in order to beat Punk's record of over 400 days and with the challenge of Sting this Sunday at Night of Champions, his title reign is certainly under threat.
