It’s that time once again! This is the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! The Hell in a Cell Pay Per View is in the books, and two major matches have come and gone, but seemingly not with the feuds finished. Nikki Bella emerged victorious in the battle of the Bellas, forcing Brie to be her slave for 30 days and pouring a smoothie over Brie’s head, Nikki gave a glimpse of what the next month will be like. AJ Lee
STEPHANIE MCMAHON was part of usual power-trip storyline duties in the opening segment involving The Authority, but things broke down with Randy Orton picked and fight and eventually laid out Seth Rollins.
RENEE YOUNG would try to get an explanation from Mark Henry for his attack on now former partner The Big Show, but he just ranted and left Young none the wiser.
Non-Title Divas Singles Match
WWE Divas Champion AJ LEE Vs ALICIA FOX w/h PAIGE
AJ skipped her way out first, and after a commercial break Fox was now in the ring. No entrance? ALWAYS A GOOD SIGN! Paige was commentary and claimed that it was the fault of her “bestie” that she lost at Hell in a Cell. Fox got the edge early with Forearm Strikes as Paige claimed she was just “having a rough day” and didn’t beat Alicia up too much. Fox mouthed off at Paige before hitting a nice One Footed Dropkick, and Paige took a fed line to point out that a good friend helps a bestie to win matches.
Fox got Lee back inside and Paige laughed off the idea of Fox becoming Divas Champion. Fox got a one count, then worked Lee over in the corner. Paige claimed that “she had it” last night as Fox hit the Prettiest Northern Lights Suplex in the business for a near fall, and Paige further ranted that she was inspiring “Foxy” because of her black gear. Paige was acting very brattish as she claimed Fox was now her “punky girl” and the definition of a “punky girl” was herself. Uhhhh… The Hell??
Lee fought up from a Chin Lock but got decked by a Back Elbow that got a two count, making Fox scream in anger. “I looooove the way she screams” Paige cooed. That is NOT PG young lady! Fox applied another Chin Lock and glared at Paige while applying it. Paige was asked if AJ Lee has her number. “My phone number?” She responded. Careful, those fan-fic writers will be at it again. Fox lifted Lee up for a Body Slam, but in a wicked counter Lee spun out and SPIKED Alicia with a DDT. Paige was getting angry as Lee started the fight back with counter boots in the corner, but Fox cut her off with a perfect Tilt-a-whirl Backbreaker.
Paige left the announce table, shoving Fox through the ropes and telling for her to win. This distraction allowed Lee to scoop her up from behind and steal the win!
AJ Lee defeats Alicia Fox with a School Girl Roll-up (OF DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!)
Post-match: Lee hugged her title and fled the scene as Paige acted like she was in total shock. Fox kicked the ropes in rage, and to make peace Paige offered one of her merch wrist-bands. SWERVE! Paige nailed a cheap shot with a Superkick! Tossing Fox to the floor, Paige tossed her bestie into the crowd barrier, and then used a Catapult to send her into it again, before slamming the back of Alicia’s head into the barrier a couple times. “You’re a worst best friend!” Paige yelled, before Perv King stole the heat of the segment by coming over to half-heartedly attend to Fox as Paige left the scene.
Thoughts: A fine match. R.I.P. Team Paicia 2014 – 2014. We barely saw thee. Will this see Fox and Paige feud now? Will AJ finally move on to a new opponent to feud with? Or will all this be forgotten by the same time next week?
Stephanie McMahon would appear to interrupt a John Cena speech, trying to sweet talk Cena into joining The Authority but when he (shockingly!) turned it down Triple H announces a Team Cena versus Team Authority Survivor Series Elimination Match.
The Second Match
(Total) Divas Singles Match
NIKKI BELLA w/h BRIE BELLA Vs NAOMI
The Bellas were out but when Brie tried to brush things off and head down the ramp Nikki yelled and ordered her back. At the ring, Nikki ordered her new slave to hold open the ropes for her, the commentators going over the Hell in a Cell Match as Nikki whispered more commands before tossing her hat near to her sister’s face (it missed). We got screenshot recap of the PPV match including the smoothie pouring.
No entrance? ALWAYS A GOOD SIGN! Naomi was in the ring after a commercial. Naomi controlled early with a Sliding D-like Clothesline, and moments later Nikki countered Naomi’s butt-shaking corner move to eventually (very chunky) counter with a Waterwheel Slam. Bella went to work, lifting up her opponent to the corner and hitting Shoulder Thrusts. Naomi was choked against the ropes a couple of times as JBL recapped the “quitting” option Brie has, as said Diva looked on in disgust at the dirty tactics.
Nikki did the Alley-Oop spot and got barely a one count. Nikki continued to control with a Corner Clothesline, then a unique rest hold hooking up the head and arm. A fight up was cut off but Naomi went on the attack by tripping Nikki into the ropes, hitting a Single Leg Dropkick soon after. The offence continued with the Running Flipping Clothesline, then a Full Nelson Bomb (I believe her husband did the same move in an earlier match on the show!) followed by a Kick straight to the spine, and a unique Double Knee Drop to the upper body to drive Bella into the mat. It all just got Naomi a near fall however.
Nikki bailed to the floor, but Brie just watched on as her sister was sent back in, and Naomi caught her with a high kick from the apron. Oh noes!! Brie weakly grabbed Naomi’s foot, enough to distract her so that Nikki could strike with the KO Forearm to knock Naomi down to the floor. Brie sold being disgusted with herself as Nikki gloated and said “Good job Brie!” Nikki took her time to bring Naomi in, hitting the Rack Attack for the easy victory.
Nikki Bella defeats Naomi with the Nikki Rack Attack.
Post-Match: Nikki ordered Brie to raise her arm, much to her annoyance.
Thoughts: A decent match, and served its purpose to get the master/slave dynamic over. The only bad thing? The segments where Brie has to do tasks are going to get worse and worse, and I don’t mean just what Brie will have to do!
Stephanie McMahon would make a last appearance, watching with Triple H from the stage as the WWE locker room had a mass brawl which saw Cena (predictably) standing tall.
That’s your lot for this week (no Lana? The shame!), so be sure to stop by next week to see what twists and turns will be on the road to Survivor Series. So until then, this has been the RAW RELOADED and I’ll see you again soon!
