Why she is the WWE/NXT Diva of the Week:
It appeared as if Paige would become the WWE Divas Champion on the 6/1 edition of Monday Night Raw. She had the champion Nikki Bella on the ropes (no pun intended) and was going in for the kill. But then something magical happened; something doubly magical; perhaps you could even call it twin magical. Twin sister Brie Bella hides Nikki under the ring, takes her place (the referee didn’t witness any of this, go figure) and slides in to roll up Paige for the three-count thereby extending Nikki’s reign to nearly 200 days and inching her even closer to overcoming Beth Phoenix and becoming the third longest-reigning Divas champion behind Maryse and AJ Lee at 216 and 295 days, respectively. Love her or hate her you can’t deny that she’s defended her title against all comers and her ability to hold onto the belt by any means possible and that is why she is the WWE/NXT Diva of the Week.
