Cattie’s Catch Up: AJ Lee Defends the Divas Championship In a “Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational” at WrestleMania 30 (April, 6th 2014)
With the Road to WrestleMania narrowing and storylines all go as of this weeks RAW and Smackdown, this weeks edition of Cattie’s Catch Up is appropriately WrestleMania themed. This edition reflects on WrestleMania 30 back in 2014, the last time when the WWE Divas Championship was defended at the event by the then Divas Champion, AJ Lee.
The Match saw AJ pitted against many of the women she spited during her record breaking divas title reign by Vickie Guerrero, whether it was facing potential threats from the NXT brand in Emma, Summer Rae etc, veteran companions who eventually severed ties with her (Layla, Fox and Aksana etc) or every one of the Total Divas cast. But one of Lee’s biggest threats walking into her tumultuous title defense was her own enforcer, a former comrade of Guerrero, Tamina. The alliance began to break heading into the event, but Tamina wouldn’t be the one to fall to the Champion on the night, but rather Naomi. Submitting Naomi to the painful Black Widow, Lee’s reign continued, setting the stage not for the Bella’s to take a further stand against their storied nemesis, but for a fantasy bookers dream back in the day, as the RAW after WrestleMania introduced a feud between AJ Lee and the first ever NXT Women’s Champion Paige.
