RAW RELOADED [30/06/15] Isn’t Team Bella Supposed to put Paige at a Disadvantage ?

Welcome one and all to the next edition of the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! Last week was a low point as it appeared the WWE seems set on burying every other Diva that doesn’t have a last name Bella. Will this sad trend continue, or will we finally see some light in the Divas division? Let’s get into it, and find out…

RAW RELOADED [22/06/15] The Bellas can Decide if they get Cheers or Boos week by week… And we know why

It’s that time once again… This is the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! Paige found herself being completely squashed both storyline and career as she lost a Handicap Match to The Bella Twins, and failed to rally the other Divas to support her cause and fight their stranglehold on the WWE Divas division. With plenty of weeks to go before the next live WWE Network special called Battleground, surely we can see the WWE turn things around, right? Ri… Right? Let’s get into it, and find out…

RAW RELOADED [15/06/15] Just when you Thought things Couldn’t get Worse…

It’s that time once again – this is the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! The less said about the Money in the Bank Pay Per… Oh sorry, the Live WWE Network Special… The less said the better as Nikki Bella retained the Divas Championship in blatant cheating fashion with the most ridiculous finish yet involving the tired Twin Magic nonsense. Can the Divas division recover from this, or will it be more of the same? Let’s get into it, and find out…

RAW RELOADED [08/06/15] So… Does Nikki Even Know if she’s Supposed to be a Heel or Face in this Feud?

Welcome back one and all to the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! Last week the Bella Twins continued their flip-flop between face and heel as they used Twin Magic to rob Paige of a title match, and Paige responded with a fiery speech from Smackdown. With Money in the Bank now days away, will either side get an edge as the Pay Per View approaches? Let’s get into it, and find out…

RAW RELOADED [01/06/15] Bellas Reverting to Type with Twin Magic Makes a Good Match Turn Sour

The Elimination Chamber “Live Special” on the WWE Network has been and gone, and a disappointing clunky match saw Nikki Bella retain the Divas Championship when she pinned Naomi to win, a match marked by the random stipulation of Tamina Snuka and Brie Bella being banned from ringside. Will Nikki move on to a new challenger, or will Paige continue to chase down the title considering she wasn’t pinned to lose the match? And what next for the evolving love story between Lana and Dolph Ziggler? Let’s get into it with this, the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION, and find out…

RAW RELOADED [25/05/15] You’d think Paige Vs Tamina Would be a Great Match. Yeah, about that…

It’s that time once again to recap all the events from Raw with this, the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION!!! Paige made her return to WWE TV last week, clearing the ring of Tamina Snuka and the Diva who “injured” her Naomi, but the Anti-Diva showed she’s no nice gal now as she even laid out Nikki Bella, showing her focus is on the Divas Championship. That led to an announcement that at the Elimination Chamber “Pay Per View” (special on the WWE Network) will have a Triple Threat Match for the Divas title with Bella defending against Naomi and Paige. With just days to go before that match, can any Diva get an edge leading up to the show? Let’s get into it, and find out…

STEPHANIE MCMAHON was, as usual part of the opening segment with the rest of The Authority. More of the same, nothing new to report here. There was also a riveting segment with McMahon and some actors from some film. I’m not being paid to promote it, so I forget what it’s called.

RENEE YOUNG would interview Dean Ambrose, but JnJ Security would interrupt to lead to a predictable brawl. Young would interview The Authority later as they mocked the fact that they

Following on from last week, Rusev demanded that LANA come to the ring, and she did. Sadly if he wanted to get back together with her he started off with an arrogant rant, blaming Lana’s actions for losses against Cena and dropping a line about how her actions last week were just what women do to get men’s attention. URGH!! Rusev offered a hand, and it appeared the two had made up but when Rusev put his foot in it and asked that Lana admit she was wrong, she simply gave an icy glare and left the ring.

Lana reminded him that he said “I Quit” to lose the feud against Cena, and that set Rusev off on another. Lana got into his face and called him a liar and a quitter and after a barrage of insults left Rusev fuming as she left. Making the Bulgarian’s night worse Dolph Ziggler came out and got another smooch from Lana before raising her arm to further taunt him.

There was another riveting segment with those actors and Divas ALICIA FOX, SUMMER RAE, LAYLA and EMMA. Setting back the women’s division a couple years as they giggled and gushed over the actors.

Continuing the apparent developing relationship storyline, Lana was out later in the show to watch Dolph Ziggler’s match against Sheamus. A distraction by Rusev led to Sheamus picking up a cheap win, and post-match Rusev put the hurting on with an attack.

The Match

Divas Singles Match

TAMINA SNUKA w/h NAOMI Vs PAIGE

THE BELLA TWINS were out first to join the commentary team, and I lower my expectations accordingly. Back from commercial Snuka was already in the ring. No entrance? ALWAYS A GOOD SIGN! We got a replay of last week’s events that saw Paige return, fight off Naomi and Snuka, and then plant Nikki with the RamPaige DDT.

Nikki claimed she was ready for this Triple Threat (even if she didn’t look it). Brie gushed about positivity and her husband while Paige hit her series of Knee Strikes but Paige soon got knocked down to the floor. Snuka roughed up Paige a little before applying a head-grip submission hold while The Twins tried (and failed) to put themselves over, still sounding like Heels rather than likeable babyfaces. Paige fought out and the two Divas exchanged punches before eventually Paige hit the Side Kick.

Naomi randomly jumped up to the apron, and had to jump back down when Snuka was whipped towards her, the brief distraction allowing a roll-up for a near fall, and it set Snuka up for a Side Kick to the head. Paige hit sloppy looking Clotheslines, perhaps due to Snuka not going with the usual Short-Arm kind that Paige is used to doing, but the follow up Dropkick was on point. Brie Bella weakly tried to justify her interference and AGAIN sounded like a Heel while doing so. A third Side Kick sent Snuka to the floor where she took an amazing head-over-heels Tumbleweed dive off the apron!

Paige took time to glare across at Naomi, and this allowed Snuka time to recover so she struck with shots to Paige as she climbed back into the ring. The referee backed Snuka away, but she came back in again to be backed off and that allowed Naomi to rush in and get a cheap shot. As the referee looked back and clearly could see the shot happening. But because that was the set up for the finish he didn’t call for the bell and pretended he couldn’t see it. “How could the referee not see that?” even The Bellas called him out on that. Anyway, Snuka eventually lifted (in messy fashion) Paige up, hit a Samoan Drop and ended the match.

Tamina Snuka defeated Paige with a Samoan Drop.

Post-Match: Naomi raised Snuka’s arm in the victory before the two duos of Divas taunted one another.

Thoughts: Wow, that match sucked and it sucked hard. Snuka appeared to be more at fault than Paige however, and the bout did no one any favours, even The Bella Twins who somehow keep being allowed to do commentary despite being no good at it! All in all an awful few minutes and not any kind of good hype for the Triple Threat at Elimination Chamber. We can only hope, and for those of you who do pray, that the three Divas who will be involved in the match will deliver a good one at the “PPV”.

NATALYA accompanied Cesaro and Nattie’s Husband as they took part in a ten versus three Handicap Match against The New Day that to no one’s surprise broke down in short order into a wild brawl.

McMahon again was out in the ring with The Authority, gloating about Ambrose’s arrest earlier in the show. However the appearance of Roman Reigns and then Ambrose to return and sign the contract soon ruined their mood.

That’s your lot (perhaps thankfully) from a less than stellar night from the Divas. Will next week bring anything good following the three-way for the butterfly belt at Elimination Chamber? I have my doubts

RAW RELOADED [11/05/15] Number Games is up as Snuka Superkicks her way to Victory

It’s that time once again to recap the events of Monday Night Raw with this, the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! Last week saw Tamina Snuka made her return to the WWE, once again acting as a bodyguard but now to Naomi, playing off Naomi’s marriage into the Samoan family dynasty. Is this the time that the number’s game is up for The Bella Twins? As we approach the Payback Pay Per View will Naomi and Snuka continue to build momentum, or can Nikki stop the onslaught and stay on top of things? Let’s get into it and find out…

RAW RELOADED [27/04/15] With Sasha Banks Shades, Naomi Still Can’t Quite Slay

The Extreme Rules Pay Per View(PPV) has come and gone, and it gave a less than completely satisfying match between Nikki Bella and Naomi for the Divas title. Despite The Bella Twins being suddenly nice girls now in opposition of “Slaying” Naomi and her new mean edge, Nikki retained the Divas Championship thanks to outside interference by Brie in completely Heel fashion. Will Naomi look for revenge this week with the next WWE PPV Payback just a couple of weeks away? Let’s get into it and find out with this, the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION!

NATALYA accompanied Cesaro and Nattie’s Husband to the ring as Nattie’s Husband was robbed of a win against Big E thanks to Xavier Woods holding down the ankle.

RAW RELOADED [20/04/15] Night of the Ineffective Double Turn

It’s that time once again where we recap all the event of that Monday night sports entertainment nonsense with this, the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! Last week saw Paige win the contendership battle royal but felt the wrath of a furious Naomi who, feeling rightly robbed of a title shot, put a beating on the Glampire that has seen her put on the “injured list” (she’s filming a movie). So where does this leave the Divas title situation heading into Extreme Rules now that Naomi has shunned the fans with this new attitude? Let’s get into it and find out…

RAW RELOADED [13/04/15] Naomi Turns Nasty as Paige Prevails in the UK

Welcome one, welcome all to the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! Last week saw Naomi further solidify her position as a number one contender with a tag match win over the Divas Champion Nikki Bella. However the conniving of others Divas robbed her of the chance as they managed to get a contendership battle royal set up for this week. With the WWE in the UK this week, can Naomi overcome the entire Divas roster and a crowd that will solidly be behind England’s own Paige? Let’s get into it and find out…

WWE Announces Signing of 3 New NXT Divas from Independent Scene

The WWE has announced a host of new Superstars and Divas in training, but in a rather shocking departure from the norm, rather than picking models and actresses, the new NXT female talent actually have wrestling experience!

Jessie McKay (Jessica McKay), KC Cassidy (Cassie McIntosh), and Jasmin (Nhooph Al-Areeb) have been officially announced in a WWE.com article which boasts about the international diversity of the new signings. While the Cassidy and Jasmin signings have been known for quite some time, McKay’s signing has stayed impressively under the radar until now.

McKay has competed a number of times for SHIMMER Women Athletes and has also worked for Ring of Honor. Cassidy has also worked for SHIMMER and SHINE Wrestling along with promotions in her native Australia, and recently Jasmin had success in AIW in a short lived duo of Team Barely Legal.
