She would also face Aksana on the May 20th edition of Main Event, defeating her and claiming revenge after Aksana injured her prior to Wrestlemania. On the June 17th episode of Main Event, Naomi defeated Paige in a non title match, but seemed to be distancing herself from Cameron, when she remained on the sidelines while Paige attacked Cameron. Naomi unsuccessfully challenged Paige for the Championship at Money in the Bank. From there, Naomi’s feud with Cameron continued to be teased, eventually leading to the Funkadactyls Split following Cameron’s Heel Turn on the July 7th episode of RAW. At WWE Battleground, Naomi and Cameron clashed on the pre show, with Cameron using usual heel tactics to score the win. Cameron would cost Naomi a match with Paige a week later, with Naomi gaining revenge the following week on RAW, forcing Cameron to submit to a new submission during a tag team match. Naomi went on hiatus until early September to repair an injury inflicted earlier in the year, returning on the September 1st episode of RAW where she, Summer and Layla defeated Cameron, Rosa Mendes and Eva Marie. Naomi would defeat Cameron in a singles match on the September 15th episode of RAW. The Two would clash again at Survivor Series in an 8 Divas Tag Team Match, with Naomi’s team emerging victorious. As of December, Naomi has been involved in a storyline featuring the Usos and Mizdow. In 2015, Naomi, now booted from Total Divas, would end up feuding with Alicia Fox, also facing possible tension with the Usos during their ongoing feud with Mizdow. The feud ended with Mizdow showing signs of a split, and Naomi returned to managing the Usos. In April 2015, Naomi would return to the divas championship picture with numerous pinfalls over the reigning champion Nikki Bella. It was also announced the same month that she would return to Total Divas in the place of Rosa Mendes and Cameron. On the April 13th Edition of RAW, Naomi became the last diva eliminated in the promoted divas number one contender battle royal. While the Victorious Paige was interviewed, Naomi unexpectedly attacked Paige and “injured her” turning heel for the first time since her NXT run. This lead to Naomi facing Nikki unsuccessfully for the Divas Championship at Extreme Rules, with the feud between the two progressing towards the Payback Pay Per View with the addition of Naomi gaining a bodyguard in returning Diva Tamina Snuka. After she and Tamina defeated the Bella’s at Payback, Naomi challenged for the Divas Championship 24 Hours Later on RAW, but was unsuccessful when Tamina hit the ring to attack the divas champ Nikki Bella, leading to DQ. Paige would then return and attack the two divas. Naomi would emerge unsuccessful in a triple threat against Nikki and Paige at the Elimination Chamber, thus shortly ruling her out of the title picture. On the July 13th Edition of RAW, Naomi and Tamina confronted Stephanie McMahon Midway through her Divas Revolution Promo, leading to the Two gaining a partner in the debuting Sasha Banks. Naomi got her first pinfall victory for Team B.A.D (Sasha/Tamina/Naomi) since the groups alignment on the August 6th episode of Smackdown, pinning Charlotte in a tag team match also featuring Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch. Team BAD went on to compete in a Nine Diva Team Elimination Match at Summerslam, but Team BAD would be the first team eliminated. Naomi teamed with Sasha Banks to defeat Paige and Becky Lynch on the September 4th episode of Main Event. Naomi also aided Sasha via distraction, helping Sasha defeat Paige days later on RAW. In February 2016, Naomi returned to her two-piece alliance with Tamina when herself and Tamina turned on their Team BAD Leader Sasha Banks during her match with Becky Lynch on the first RAW of February. Dubbed as “NaoMina” the duo also went on to defeat the Team of Paige and Natalya the same week on Main Event. However NaoMina would go on to be defeated by Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks at Fast Lane. NaoMina would lose several weeks later also at WrestleMania 32 when the pairing joined Lana, Summer Rae and a recently promoted Emma to face Brie Bella, Eva Marie, Paige, Alicia Fox and Natalya, defeated by the babyface team. On the July 26th episode of Smackdown (Live) Naomi made her return to Television after months of inactivity due to injury, participating in a multi woman promo following Becky Lynch’s clean victory over Battleground Opposer, Natalya, that also featured Alexa Bliss, Carmella and Eva Marie. On the August 16th episode of Smackdown, Naomi cemented her face turn by chasing Eva Marie midway through a women’s tag team match in attempt to get revenge on Eva for avoiding in ring competition earlier in the show. This, and Eva’s repetitive chances to avoid her Smackdown Opponents, lead to Naomi, Carmella and Becky being booked in a 6 Woman Tag at Summerslam, against Alexa Bliss, Natalya and Eva. Weeks after losing the Summerslam Mixed Tag (which had Nikki Bella return to replace a suspended Eva Marie) Naomi would compete in a Six Pack Challenge at the Returning WWE Backlash to crown the first Smackdown Women’s Champion, which was won by Becky Lynch. At No Mercy, Alexa Bliss would end up facing Naomi after Becky Lynch, who was set to defend her Women’s Title against Bliss was sidelined from competition temporarily. Naomi ended up pinning Bliss for the upset victory. Two Days Later on Smackdown, Naomi successfully pinned Carmella after Nikki Bella distracted Carmella, allowing Naomi to take advantage. Naomi and Alexa would then get a rematch, of which Alexa won. Naomi would then join Alexa as part of Team Smackdown for Survivor Series, ultimately ending up on the losing team. Naomi returned to WWE Television on the January 24th episode of Smackdown, scheduled to face Natalya until another backstage brawl between Natalya and Nikki Bella had hindered those plans. Angry at being snubbed an opportunity to compete, Naomi called out any woman backstage to compete against her, leading to the arrival of Smackdown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss, who had attacked Becky Lynch earlier in the night alongside Mickie James, beginning another angle between the two. Naomi would be named the contender to Bliss’s Championship after consecutive pinfall victories, winning the championship at Elimination Chamber after pinning Bliss, ending her reign at 70 days. Days Later, Naomi would announce an unspecified injury sustained at the PPV, though promising to walk into Orlando into WrestleMania 33 as Smackdown Women’s Champion. This lead to Alexa Bliss confronting her and demanding she defends the title on the February 21st episode of Smackdown, otherwise surrendering it. On the episode, Naomi announced her injury would sideline her for longer than she expected, thus abdicated the title after just over 2 weeks as champion. Alexa Bliss would win back the title later that night against Becky Lynch in a match set up by Daniel Bryan. On the Pre WrestleMania episode of Smackdown, Naomi returned from Injury, attacking Alexa Bliss and Carmella following the two heels emerging victorious in a Tag Team Match. After clearing off the two, she would be announced as fully fit to work the Smackdown Women’s Championship Match at WrestleMania. At WrestleMania, Naomi submitted Alexa Bliss in the Multi Woman Women’s Title Match to tie Bliss to become a 2x Smackdown Women’s Champion, retaining the title against Bliss only two days later on Smackdown. Naomi then entered into a feud with Charlotte, who had been brought over to the Smackdown Brand as a result of the Superstar Shake Up. After being pinned the same night by the 4x RAW Women’s Champion, Naomi would have to defend the title on the April 25th episode of Smackdown against Charlotte, though it closed with no result as both women were attacked in the main event match that night by Carmella, Tamina and Natalya. At WWE Backlash, Naomi teamed with Becky and Charlotte against Natalya, Carmella and Tamina, though they were unsuccessful in emerging victorious. In Late May, it was announced that the first ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match would take place to crown the next contender to Naomi’s Smackdown Women’s Championship. However in Early June, seeing as Naomi would not receive a contender until the night of the Pay Per View, Lana re-emerged under her new gimmick and tried to challenge Naomi. When this went wrong, Lana cost Naomi her Backlash Tag Team Rematch, attacking her also a week later after her successful singles match against Tamina. Lana would get her first chance against Naomi at Battleground, losing the match and the two that followed. At Smackdowns Battleground Pay Per View, a five way elimination match concluded in Natalya being victorious, making her the newest challenger to Naomi’s title. At Summerslam, Naomi dropped the Smackdown Women’s Title to Natalya, ending her reign at 140 days. Naomi would get her rematch for the championship on the September 12th episode of Smackdown, ending with Natalya retaining. A Week later, Naomi participated in a four way main event to decide the next contender to the Smackdown Women’s Championship, won by Charlotte. On the October 17th episode of Smackdown, Naomi rekindled her Backlash alignment with Charlotte and Becky Lynch to take on Natalya, Tamina and Lana in tag team action, ending with them being victorious due to Charlotte submitting Lana. On the December 12th episode of Smackdown, Naomi returned to Television, two weeks after being sidelined due to being slingshotted into steel stairs by Sarah Logan, attacking Logan and fellow Riott Squad members Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan. On the December 19th episode of Smackdown, Naomi declared herself as the first official women’s wrestler from the Smackdown Roster to enter the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match.

On the February 20th episode of Smackdown, Naomi teamed with Becky Lynch and Charlotte against The Riott Squad in a match suggested and made a week prior, though were defeated. At WWE Fast Lane, Naomi and Becky Lynch were defeated in tag team action by Natalya and Carmella. At WrestleMania 34, Naomi won the WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal, lastly eliminating Bayley.

On the Mat 22nd episode of Smackdown, Naomi qualified to be in her first ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, defeating Sonya Deville. Naomi would also enter into a brief feud with Aiden English, Rusev and Lana heading into the Pay Per View, though neither her or Lana would win the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. In August, Naomi began a feud with Peyton Royce and Billie Kay, losing matches against the two. On the September 4th episode of Smackdown, Naomi got some redemption by pinning Peyton Royce, attacked by Royce and Kay after. This lead to Asuka returning, attacking the pair and making the save for Naomi.

Paige (@RealPaigeWWE)
Saraya Jade Bevis, otherwise known by her WWE Ring Name Paige, is a Professional Women’s Wrestler Signed to WWE from Norwich, England. Ever since Debuting on WWE’s Developmental Program, Paige has become one of the top rising Women’s Superstars in WWE, feuding with the likes of Emma and Summer Rae. In July 2013, Paige competed in a tournament, reaching the finals and defeating Emma to become the first ever NXT Women’s Champion. Paige also made a successful title defense against Emma in a rematch on NXT’s first ever Pay Per View, NXT ArRIVAL before she was made to relinquish the title in late April due to working the main roster and because it was deemed by JBL “Unfair” to the other ladies in the NXT Women’s Division. On April 7th 2014, The Night after WrestleMania, Paige made her RAW Debut by Congratulating AJ Lee on her Mania Victory, but was mocked and slapped, as well as forced into a Divas Championship Match with AJ Lee. Paige ultimately won by countering AJ’s Black Widow Submission with her Paige Turner finisher, winning her 1st Main Roster Championship, becoming the 3rd NXT Womens Superstar to hold the Divas Championship and becoming the 1st Ever Womens Superstar to Hold Both the Divas and NXT Women’s Championship at the same time. Since winning the championship, she triumphed over the likes of Alicia Fox and Aksana, and also successfully retained the Divas Championship over the likes of Brie Bella and Tamina Snuka respectively. Following Extreme Rules, Paige began a feud with Alicia Fox who she claimed she “underestimated”. Paige’s winning streak ended in her home country of the UK when she was pinned by Fox in a Non title match on RAW. It was announced a week later that Paige would defend the Divas Championship at Payback against Fox, to which Paige would retain. Following the PPV, Paige began a feud with Total Divas Star, Cameron, defeating her in a non title match the week following Payback on Superstars. Paige would be re-challenged by her weeks later on RAW, to which Paige won. Paige would lose to Naomi the following day on Main Event, and attacked Cameron, who shoved her during her victory celebration with Naomi, as Naomi stood and watched. Paige faced Naomi in a successful effort at Money in the Bank, only to drop the title to the returning AJ Lee the night after on RAW, ending her reign at 84 days. Paige unsuccessfully challenged AJ for the divas title at Battleground, acting like her friend, before turning on her the night following the Pay Per View, turning heel for the first time in her WWE Career. Paige explained her actions a week later, pretending to still be AJs friend, but AJ, seeing through her act, ended up in a brawl with her, with Paige retreating. Back and forth clashes continued leading to AJ defending vs Paige at Summerslam, which lead to Paige capturing her 2nd Divas Championship. The Following week, Paige would be defeated multiple times by Natalya due to interference from Rival AJ Lee. Paige and AJ would then have their storyline merged alongside the Bella’s after Stephanie McMahon granted Nikki Bella a future title match to “compensate her for Brie’s mistreatment” of her. At Night of Champions, Paige dropped the Divas Championship to AJ in a Triple Threat match also involving Nikki Bella. Paige would then drop her friendship ties with Lee the following day on RAW with the ultimate intention of winning the championship back. A Week Later, Paige vengefully aligned herself with Alicia Fox as Payback for AJ causing her to lose the Divas title at Night of Champions. However, the alignment stayed short lived, as Fox accidentally cost Paige her title match with AJ at Hell in a Cell, and a attack by Paige the following night lead to the duo’s split. Paige and Fox competed on Opposite sides at Survivor Series in an 8 Diva Tag, with Paige being last eliminated by Naomi. In 2015, Paige hinted a face turn after rekindling with Natalya after their issues were broadcast on Total Divas, and seemingly inserted herself into the title picture alongside her with a non title win over Nikki Bella, only to be pinned a week later by Brie following a distraction from Natalya’s Husband, Tyson Kidd. Paige and Nattie would lose to the Bella’s at the Royal Rumble, then Paige would lose a title match against Nikki at Fast Lane. The Night following Fast Lane, Paige and Emma would be very quickly defeated by the Bellas, forming the #GiveDivasAChance movement. This lead to Paige challenging Nikki a week later in a lengthy match for the title, but an intervention from Brie cost Paige a chance to win the title back. Paige was then saved from a double attack from the Bellas by AJ Lee. The Two went on to defeat the Bellas at WrestleMania 31. Paige then went on to win a divas number one contendership battle royal weeks later on RAW, but would lose her extreme rules spot after being attacked by a newly turned heel Naomi. Paige gained a measure of revenge by attacking Naomi and Tamina in her return on the May 18th episode of RAW, as well as also laying out the victorious champ Nikki Bella with the Rampaige after she had retained against Naomi via Disqualification. Though coming up short in a championship triple threat at Elimination Chamber, Paige evoked her rematch clause to challenge Nikki in a singles match for the title the next night on RAW, won by Nikki, turning Nikki and Brie heel once again. Paige then went on to claim the Bellas were holding other members of the Division back some days before Nikki defeated Summer Rae on RAW. On the July 13th Episode of RAW, Paige aligned herself with the debuting Charlotte and Becky Lynch after weeks of failing to make partners with members of the Divas Division, who refused to help her in the fight against the Bellas. Paige and Becky competed against Sasha and Naomi on the July 20th episode of RAW, in which Paige was pinned by Banks. Paige eventually returned to her winning ways on the August 3rd edition of RAW after various losses, pinning Naomi in a singles match. Paige would end up on the winning team for the Nine Diva Team Elimination Match at Summerslam, but would be pinned the next night on RAW by Alicia Fox in a 6 Diva Tag Team Match against Team Bella. Paige participated with her Team PCB Partners in the first Divas Beat the Clock Challenge on the August 31st episode of RAW but never managed to qualify after her opponent Sasha rolled out of the ring when the match count finalized. She would also lose to Sasha the following week on RAW. On the Smackdown that followed, Paige faced Sasha once again, ending with no result when Team PCB and Team BAD ended up brawling. On the September 21st episode of RAW, Paige Turned Heel for the Second Time Since Joining the Main Roster, Blasting Charlotte over Taking Credit for the Divas Revolution and using Ric Flair to Get Herself into WWE, while also verbally blasting the rest of the divas, including Becky Lynch. Following Charlotte’s Successful Title Defense at Hell in a Cell, Paige, after coaxing Becky and Charlotte into a PCB Reunion the following Night on RAW, attacked both divas following a loss to Team Bella. On the November 16th episode of RAW, Paige and Charlotte took part in the first ever RAW Divas Championship Contract signing, which was the main event of the show. This came weeks after Paige pinned Becky Lynch in a Four Way Match also featuring Sasha Banks and Brie Bella to become the Number One Contender to Charlotte’s Championship. Paige challenged Charlotte for the title at Survivor Series but would be unsuccessful, getting a rematch hours later on RAW which ended in a double count-out. Paige would place Charlotte in a PTO on the announce table following the match result. Paige then re-challenged Charlotte for the Divas Title at TLC, losing again after being tripped into the corner where a Turnbuckle was previously unraveled by Charlotte and Ric Flair, turning both heel in the process. Paige returned to WWE TV on the January 18th episode of RAW, managing a returning Natalya for her match against Brie Bella. A Week later, Paige returned to the ring for her first match since TLC, where herself and Natalya defeated Alicia Fox and Brie Bella. Paige competed at WrestleMania 32 for Team Total Divas, emerging on the winning team as herself, Natalya, Eva Marie, Brie Bella and Alicia Fox defeated Lana, Summer Rae, Emma, Naomi and Tamina. On the Post Money in the Bank RAW, Paige renewed her rivalry with former tag team partner Charlotte, challenging her for the WWE Women’s Championship, ultimately losing. Following the match, Sasha Banks Returned and Herself and Paige cleared off Charlotte and her Partner Dana Brooke. In November 2017, Paige made her long awaited return to WWE, initially appearing as a babyface where she welcomed herself back to the WWE Universe in the midst of a fatal four way number one contenders match between Bayley, Alicia Fox, Sasha Banks and Mickie James before revealing herself to be a heel when the promoted Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose, once NXT Superstars, attacked Mickie, Bayley and Sasha alongside Paige. The alignment between Paige, Deville and Rose was further established when the three women also attacked Alexa Bliss backstage. A Week Later, Paige, Deville and Rose attacked Sasha Banks, taking out her tag partners for the night, Bayley and Mickie James, backstage, revealing themselves additionally to be known as “Absolution”. The Trio also attempted to target Asuka later in the night, but waived off the decision. Weeks Later, Paige would be sidelined with an injury that occurred at a WWE Live Event, with no timetable officially set for her in ring return. Despite this, she would manage Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville, her Absolution Teammates, on the January 8th episode of RAW. On the Post WrestleMania episode of RAW, Paige announced her retirement from in ring competition due to Injury, dissolving her partnership with Absolution in the process. The next day on Smackdown Live, Paige was revealed as the new Smackdown Live General Manager in the place of now regular competitor Daniel Bryan. Over the weeks she would also get involved with her former Absolution teammates Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville, going against their need for hopeful favorite treatment. On the July 24th episode of Smackdown, Paige would get involved in the feud between Carmella and Becky Lynch by firing Carmella’s associate James Ellsworth and forcing Ellsworth to be removed from the building. A Week later she would book Carmella against a returning Charlotte Flair after Flair saved crowned contender Becky Lynch from the Women’s Champions lone attack. This lead to Charlotte defeating Carmella, cementing her own spot at Summerslam as a contender to the title, making Carmella’s Summerslam title defense a triple threat.

Sarona Reiher, often known for her WWE Ring Name Tamina Snuka, is a Professional Women’s Wrestler signed to WWE. Reiher is the Daughter of WWE Hall of Famer, Jimmy Superfly Snuka.

In February 2014, Dissension was teased between Lee and Snuka when Snuka almost cost AJ the Divas Title in her Match against Cameron by accidentally super-kicking her in the face. More dissension was teased between herself and Lee on the March 17th RAW Episode after she shoved Lee moments after they lost in a tag team match. Their tension continued to another week, as Tamina was announced to compete alongside 12 other Divas for AJ Lee’s Divas Championship at WrestleMania 30 by Vickie Guerrero. Tamina would then turn on Lee on the March 28th episode of Smackdown by throwing her into Nikki Bella during an argument, costing her and Lee the match. However She would remain Lee’s bodyguard the following week. Despite challenging for the Championship at WrestleMania, Tamina ultimately lost, despite not being the woman pinned or submitted. Tamina remained aligned with Lee following WrestleMania, until Lee personally requested some time off. This allowed Snuka to compete in a Main Event Battle Royal, becoming the Number 1 Contender to Paige’s Divas title, but she was overall unsuccessful at capturing the title at the event. In May 2015, Snuka returned and aligned with Naomi, attacking the Bella Twins on the May 4th episode of RAW. Tamina then made a successful in ring return on RAW a week later, defeating Brie Bella with a superkick. Days later, It would be announced that Naomi and Tamina would face the Bella Twins at Payback. The Two defeated the Bellas at Payback, leading to Naomi getting a title shot against Nikki 24 hours later on RAW. Due to Tamina, the match would end in a Disqualification result, leading to Paige’s return, in which she attacked and cleared off Tamina and Naomi before also attacking Nikki. Tamina would be banned from ringside for Naomi’s next title shot at Elimination Chamber where she battled both Paige and the Divas Champion Nikki. In July, Naomi and Taminas pairing gained an extra partner when Sasha Banks was promoted to RAW. The Trio would then be dubbed “B-A-D” (Beautiful and Dangerous). Tamina returned to action on the August 10th episode of RAW, her first match since the Divas Revolution emerged, and was pinned by Brie Bella after missing her signature superkick.

Tamina and Naomi officially joined Team Lana weeks later at WrestleMania 32, competing with Lana as well as Summer Rae and a returning Emma to face and be defeated by Paige, Alicia Fox, Natalya, Eva Marie and Brie Bella.

On the April 11th episode of Smackdown, Tamina made her official TV Return as one of the two selected women sent to Smackdown as part of the second night of the “Superstar Shake Up”. A Week Later, Tamina showed complacency as did Carmella and Natalya over Charlotte heading into the title picture, and after showing much anger at Charlotte pinning the Smackdown Women’s Champion Naomi that night to gain the said title shot, Tamina, alongside Carmella and Natalya, ambushed the 4x RAW Women’s Champion and Naomi a week later during the main event match for Naomi’s Smackdown Women’s Championship, leaving no result.

After those dominant victories, Tamina entered into her first contendership match in a while on the September 19th episode of Smackdown, facing Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Naomi for the right to face Natalya at Hell in a Cell, though the match was eventually won by Charlotte.

She would also be inserted into the WrestleMania 30 Divas Championship invitational by Vickie Guerrero, which also features her sister Brie. Brie and Nikki, despite clashing temporarily, were both unsuccessful in capturing the title. Following her Sisters Kayfabe departure at Payback, Nikki became the target of attacks from various heel women’s superstars such as Aksana and Alicia Fox by orders of Stephanie McMahon, who Brie slapped at Payback. Nikki would gain revenge on Alicia Fox weeks later, defeating her in a singles match on Superstars. Nikki had since been placed in matches by Stephanie McMahon rendering her helpless, from a Match with Alicia Fox with both divas presumably having one hand tied behind their backs, to which Fox disobeyed, to losing a 5 on 1 Handicap match a day later on Main Event, being pinned by Eva Marie.

Lee and Nikki clashed at Survivor Series in a match that ended in seconds as Brie distracted AJ to allow Nikki Bella to win her 2nd Divas Championship. This would also make Nikki the first Total Diva to win the title since the shows debut. After Retaining against AJ at TLC, Nikki saw herself in a triple threat feud with Natalya and Paige as the two scored non title victories over her. Despite the Triple Threat Teases, Nikki would see herself not defending the title but rather joining Brie in facing Paige and Natalya in Tag Team Action at the Royal Rumble. Nikki won alongside Brie, then faced Paige at Fast Lane, successfully defending her title. Nikki and Brie then went on to feud with Paige and a returning AJ Lee, defeated by them at WrestleMania 31. Nikki turned babyface the RAW before Extreme Rules, supporting Brie in her match against the newly heel Naomi. Naomi would then be announced as the Number One Contender to Nikki’s Title. Nikki successfully retained the title at Extreme Rules after Brie kicked Naomi on the apron as revenge for an earlier mid-match attack at ringside. Nikki and Brie were defeated by Tamina and Naomi at Payback but Nikki went on to retain her title 24 hours later on RAW against Naomi when Tamina attacked Nikki for the DQ Finish, leading to Paige returning and chasing off Naomi and Tamina, before also attacking Nikki.

The Move turned the Bella’s heel once again, a month or two after turning babyface. However, Nikki’s character status appeared to be that of a tweener the week following, performing a babyface entrance for her match with Summer while using heel antics/taunts in the match. On the July 6th episode of RAW, The Bella’s and Fox were finally cemented as heels again. A Week later the Bella’s and Fox were introduced to “New Competition” in the form of the debuting Sasha Banks, Charlotte and Becky Lynch, who aligned themselves with various divas.

Nikki and Carmella’s feud continued into Survivor Series, when Nikki was sidelined from the match by an unknown attacker, with Carmella denying accusations of executing such an attack prior to the match and via social media.

Nikki would go on to win that match, and her angle furthered with Carmella nights later on Smackdown when she confronted Natalya over the TLC accusations from Carmella that Natalya sidelined her at Survivor Series. Natalya eventually outed herself as Nikki’s attacker, leading to many heated confrontations between the two sides. The Two faced off in a lengthy singles match at Elimination Chamber, with no clear winner as the match went to a double count-out result. An altercation in the backstage office days later on Smackdown lead to a furious Daniel Bryan booking a Falls Count Anywhere match for the two for the following Smackdown episode.

Nikki and John would win the match booked by Daniel Bryan via double finishers at WrestleMania, with John proposing to Nikki after the match. Nikki would then go back on hiatus to allow her neck to heal. At the Royal Rumble, Nikki made her official in ring return for WWE, entering as one of the final five in the Women’s Royal Rumble Match, becoming runner up to the winner Asuka.

She would be repackaged some time later with a rock chick gimmick, and would face multiple losses to then NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte and Sasha Banks. Lynch turned heel in November 2014 and aligned herself with Banks, but they ultimately split following a Fatal 4 Way Women’s Championship Match, which Banks won. Lynch would be repackaged again as she became the contender to Banks Title, but was unsuccessful in winning the gold. Becky would take a few weeks out of NXT due to injury, before returning to face former rival Bayley in a Number One Contenders Match.

The Next Night on RAW, Rousey would have her suspension period extended due to another attack on Alexa Bliss that ultimately violated her suspension (as she would not initially be allowed to appear on RAW due to it). However due to the aggravation between Ronda and Alexa, Kurt Angle would give Ronda a one on one match at WWE Summerslam against Alexa for the Championship, though attacking Alexa during her suspension period would mean that the match would be taken from her. On the August 6th episode of RAW, Ronda would have her RAW in ring debut against Alicia Fox, defeating the RAW in ring veteran in the match and promising after to take Alexa Bliss’s championship at Summerslam. At Summerslam, Rousey won the title by submitting Alexa Bliss, winning her first WWE Championship in turn and ending Bliss’s championship reign.

In December, Kay and Royce entered into a feud with Asuka which also lead to Nikki Cross’s involvement, also leading to Asuka putting the title on the line against all three womens superstars at NXT Takeover San Antonio, which was Kays first Womens Championship Match on Pay Per View. Asuka retained by pinning Royce, and the two, after concluding their feud with Asuka, would compete on the winning and losing side in various matches from there. On the April 9th episode of Smackdown Live, Kay would be promoted to the main roster alongside Peyton Royce, newly dubbed the IIconics, attacking Smackdown Womens Champion Charlotte and doing enough damage for Miss Money in the Bank Carmella to capitalize on, as she cashed in her Money in the Bank contract, pinned Charlotte and won the Smackdown Womens Championship. Weeks Later, Billie would make her singles debut on the main roster against Charlotte, losing the match. On the May 22nd episode of Smackdown, Billie would also get a Money in the Bank Qualifying Match, giving the IIconics a second chance to represent themselves in the upcoming Womens Money in the Bank Ladder Match, though Billie would lose to her opponent, Lana. Billie and Peyton would face Charlotte and Becky Lynch on the August 7th episode of Smackdown, losing when Royce was submitted by Charlotte’s Figure Eight. In August, Kay and Royce entered into a feud with Naomi, defeating her on one occasion each in singles matches. Naomi would re-challenge Royce on the September 4th episode of Smackdown, defeating her only to be attacked in seconds by Royce as well as by Billie Kay. This lead to Asuka returning to Television, clearing off Royce and Kay and saving Naomi.
