AJ vs. Kaitlyn at WrestleMania?

After last night’s tussle and match between former friends AJ Lee and Divas Champion Kaitlyn, rumors have naturally sprung up about the two going head-to-head at WrestleMania.

Though a Divas match has yet to be booked for the Pay Per View, two matches are rumored to have been considered: one with Maria Menounos making a return to the ring, and another featuring the return of several former Divas.

F4WOnline is now reporting that, instead of those options, it’s likely a Divas Championship match between Kaitlyn and AJ will be booked for WrestleMania. If this is the case, both plans for an Eight-Diva Tag Team match and a heel turn for Layla would be nixed as a result.

With one Raw between now and WrestleMania, the match–if not mere rumor–would have to be booked fairly soon.

WrestleMania 29 is less than 12 days away, taking place on Sunday, April 7th.

Do you want to see AJ vs. Kaitlyn at WrestleMania?

    Huh?? Doesn’t really make sense if you’ve read the NXT spoilers

    • http://twitter.com/#!/JillianHallTNA TNAknockoutJillianHall

      They can cut that match or replace that episode and air it next week or Kaitlyn will retain at Wrestlemania again :)

      • JD Sensations

        Yeah guess they could, would make a lot of sense also as the IC Title is being defended on NXT

  • http://twitter.com/ClydeEDawkins Number One

    This shouldn’t happen yet. They should NOT nix a Layla heel turn, especially since she is very, very close! They should turn Layla, have Kaitlyn go through her, and THEN she could lose the title to AJ.

  • Jinzo

    I find it funny how the dirtsheets have reported 50 different match scenarios for the divas and all of them have been wrong so far. It seems like ever since The Bellas made their surprise return, dirtsheets are pulling out whatever news they can think of and hope they’re right.

    • revivingophelia

      I know! There have been so many rumored matches and nothing booked yet… It’s kind of like the dirtsheets figure that if they keep guessing, they’re bound to be right eventually.

      • http://twitter.com/#!/JillianHallTNA TNAknockoutJillianHall

        Just like they did last year for Kharma returning back to Extreme Rules. Then they said “Oh, WWE didn’t use it after all because WE said she would return…” bitch, puh-lease…

        • Ace Of Base

          That’s exactly what I was thinking too. I don’t believe the dirtsheets at all on this one. What i m gathering from this, is that they’re doing all these slight angles to see what they can potentially put together one or two weeks before the PPV. By angles I mean, these different matches and segments they’ve been doing on RAW and Smackdown, like McMahon could possibly be checking to see who he’s going to go with for a Mania spot. I personally wouldn’t mind the AJ vs Kaitlyn match because in a lot of ways, this feud can already have a video package without much effort. They were the Chickbusters before and they can work..they’re very much the new Lita and Trish! Lol. Do it!

  • Nostalgia

    People keep mentioning NXT like they haven’t cut matches from programs before and we may know all about NXT but there are a lot of people who don’t. NXT booking has no effect on the main roster.

    • Jordan

      The only match they ever cut was Audrey Marie vs Tamina Snuka, which was an absolute eyesore.

      • Nostalgia

        I’m talking overall.

  • Melissa

    If this happens I will faint.

  • stephens61086

    Yes yes yes!! Give us this match! So much better than a random throwaway tag match or a pointless Menunous match. Think of how amazing these girls have come on since this last years Wrestlemania, both 100% deserve their chance to shine on the big stage. And besides we have NEVER had a divas championship match at a Wrestlemania!

  • Melissa

    Oh and at this point I don’t want to speculate too much (singles match at Mania, if they’ll only have an appearance, or if they’ll be added to an existing tag match, etc etc.)

    I want to be surprised so that when I mark out, I’ll need to be rushed to the hospital.

  • velvelove

    i wanted layla vs kaitlyn. i thought that had a chance of being longer. i fell aj vs kaitlyn will just be 2 mins.

    • revivingophelia

      With 9 announced matches so far (more than either of the past two years, which both had 8 matches on the main card), I’m afraid any divas’ match would be short. :/ It would almost be better if they added Kaitlyn and AJ to the Team Hell No vs. Ziggler/Big E match for this one, then continued building until they faced each other one-on-one at Extreme Rules. That way, the girls would be out there longer, the match would be less likely to be buried between two of the big matches as a ‘rest’ for the crowd, and the women would have some ring veterans out there to work with/help them if necessary. (WM is a huge stage, and AJ’s never had a ppv match that I know of, and it’s in her hometown… Plus Kaitlyn’s never been on WM, so there would probably be some nerves there for them…)

  • http://www.twitter.com/jayjaywwealways yagirljay

    Is this match going to happen for 18 seconds? Huh? AJ doesn’t deserve a WrestleMania Match, if it happens….she deserves to get humiliated and embarrassed in front of her hometown/state……she’s a disgrace to WWE and it’s fans.

    • gl83

      Yeah, what has she done except become the most prominent Diva in WWE. Let’s just throw out a bunch of other Divas that fans don’t even know or care about on the grand stage of WrestleMania instead.

  • Monkey Tennis

    It would be a shame to waste a potentially decent feud on a match without time to build any genuine interest for it.

    If the WWE had played things right and made the most of AJ’s immense popularity last year, this match could have been huge. Instead, it’s already feeling like last minute filler.

    • Crazy_J

      I don’t really want the match rushed either!

  • GoldenAgeRuled

    Hallelujah!!! I mean was this not the most easiest match for the WWE to book in the first place?!?!?! Before TLC PPV most people were considering a heel Eve defending against a face AJ at Wrestlemania.. however after AJ turned and Eve lost the title to Kaitlyn then retired, AJ Vs. Kaitlyn had been the clear choice, it has a ready made history (I’m aware that the WWE doesn’t care about match build for our lovely Divas) but in this case they could of made barely any effort in the past month and people still would of been invested in this match. We all remember their lovely backstage brawl on smackdown from January… good times :) WWE wasted their time trying to sign all these former Divas, building Layla for a heel turn & trying to pull Maria Menunous… honestly the typical fan would care for any of those options… but this? this everyone can agree is a match that can really take off and makes sense to have. Fingers crossed that we actually get to see this Divas Championship defended on the grandest stage of them all, it’s been around for 5 years this July FFS! xoxo

    Kaitlyn retains and then at Extreme Rules AJ wins Divas title in a No Holds Barret, Berret.. whatever, match.

    • Melissa

      “in a No Holds Barret, Berret.. whatever, match.”

      LMAO

      • jtiera

        LMFAO despite the mix up at the end there, I like this idea

    • Sarah Connor

      *facepalm*. you meant a no holds barred? aka. a no DQ match basically.

      • Melissa

        I’m pretty sure they typed “barret” for comedic purposes. That’s why they ended the line with a “…whatever, match”, lol.

    • Lily

      LMFAOOOOO i’m sleep.

  • jen07201

    I really hope to see AJ vs Kaitlyn at WM. It would mean so much for both AJ and Kaitlyn. For AJ facing her ex best friend in her homestate of NJ in a championship match at the biggest stage and her first PPV. For Kaitlyn it would be facing her ex best friend in the first ever Divas Championship match at WM and getting revenge on all of AJ’s attacks on her. It would be a full circle for both since starting in NXT Season 3.

  • numero47

    Though I like the idea it just seems to rushed at this point

  • http://twitter.com/dustinhadley Dustin

    As much as I would love to see these two go one-on-one, its just not gonna happen the card already has 9 matches. My money is they will be added to the Tag Team Title match. Dolph Ziggler, Big E. Langston and AJ Lee vs Kane, Daniel Bryan & Kaitlyn for the Divas and Tag Team Titles. Who wants to bet me?

    • redsandman99

      I definitely think that’s what will end up happening. Which could be fun and it would most likely get better card placing than if it was just AJ and Kaitlyn one on one.

      • revivingophelia

        Since there’s already 9 matches (and the past two years only had 8 on the main card), I can see this as more likely to happen… And it would be better for the ladies. They may not see much ring-time themselves if this happens, but they’d be out there longer, probably have a better spot on the card, and they would be out there with some solid ring veterans… And then there would be more time to build up to a possible one-on-one at Extreme Rules or something.

  • THETommyTommy

    This actually would be a hella lot more exciting than anything else being planned and AJ deserves it. Firstly, she owned RAW for most of last year. She was the talk of the town and surrounded by controversy since last Wrestlemania. It will be in her hometown and this rivalry between her and Kaitlyn has been brewing all year. Also, it’s about time the Diva’s title was defended at Mania, seriously.

    YES! YES! YES! AJ for Diva’s Champ at Mania!

  • ajfan83

    Meh. It would be nice for AJ to get a Wrestlemania match but this has almost no build and will be treated as filler. Nothing to get too excited about.

  • http://Twitter.com/FrenchxKiss FrenchBarbie

    I would love to see Kaitlyn vs Aj at Wrestlemania, I hope there is some type of match type for it instead of a normal singles match. I think it would make the match much more exciting! Also, i wonder if they are going to continue Layla’s heel turn? I think she was an INCREDIBLE heel but I’m nervous that if they turn her heel they may turn her into, sadly Melina’s last heel turn.

    On a side note;
    I really hope after Wrestlemania they bring in some more divas from NXT, I think some of the girls there are more then ready! I’d like to see Paige & Summer to debut.
    xo

  • Akie

    Layla should stay face cos if she does turn heel Im afraid she’ll just get the Melina treatment.. will be a jobber for months then get released I dont think Layla deserves that.. she deserve another title run which will truly showcase her inring skills as a face then probably retire.

  • DJ8946

    Idc what you guys say Im excited for the 1st time around this season.

  • dsan

    I really hope they go with this. From what I’ve seen on Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, and other wrestling websites, this is the match most fans want to see for the girls. This match makes sense. Both former best friends, one turned crazy, the other a champion, battle it out at Mania. Not to mention that Kaitlyn is the champ, so she should obviously be showcased, and with the year AJ had and Mania being in her hometown, it’s almost a blasphemy to not have her in a Wrestlemania match.
    Something besides the point: a lot of people seem to want a 6 man winner takes all title match between Team Hell No/Kaitlyn and Dolph/Big E/AJ. I wouldn’t be a fan of this. I would much rather have AJ vs Kaitlyn, with AJ winning the title, and Dolph loose the tag match and successfully cash in.

  • divaindemise

    I would rather they continued with the semi-interesting Layla heel turn for Wrestlemania for a multitude of reasons: I don’t think Layla has much left in her WWE career at this point, so giving her a defining Wrestlemania moment before she leaves would be sweet and Kaitlyn could do with the rub of going over her. Secondly, the potential draw power of Kaitlyn versus AJ requires investment and in spite of their sporadic volatile segments together, I don’t think they can sell a solid WM match out of it. They’ve done Kaitlyn no favours whatsoever in building her presence as a Divas Champion and because of that, I just don’t think the audiences will care about this match as much as they could after a few months is spent on Kaitlyn racking up title defences over a few of the other women.

    I agree with the consensus that AJ should be wrestling more and a feud with Kaitlyn smells of money. But I don’t want it to be rushed and throwaway.

  • k2evecrew

    I’m hoping they’ll add the girls to team hell no vs ziggler & big Langston . Their feud hasn’t lasted long enough & with all those matches on the card they won’t get much time in a separate match. Plus the crowd would actually care due to team hell no & will be a big win for either ladies.

  • Aria–

    I don’t want it to be rushed. I want this fleshed out. Add them to the tag title match at most, have the faces retain and the feud move forward.

    • Aria–

      Otherwise, just have each woman accompany their respective teams to the ring and give them a WM moment at ringside. Kaitlyn would really add to Team Hell No’s “frenemies” dynamic as well.

    Why bring Maria Menunous back? It’s not like she’s a “draw”.
