Battleground Results: Brie Bella Gets Knocked Off Her Game (Photos)

Tonight at WWE Battleground, AJ Lee‘s new ally Tamina Snuka played a big role in helping her retain the Divas Championship.

When Brie Bella appeared to have victory within her grasp, Tamina got ahold of Brie’s sister Nikki, choking her out and distracting Brie. This allowed AJ to sneak up behind her and roll her up for a quick win.

This extends AJ’s Divas Title reign, but by the looks of it, this won’t be Brie’s last shot at the belt.

Check out some shots from the match below:

    I like Brie’s attire! I’m glad AJ won! I want the divas to start having longer reigns! I can sleep well tonight, looking forward to see the match!

    • Richard Smith

      we had 4 reign consecutively over 110 days long that something. but if nikki didn’t beat beth we would had 6

    • No1LitaFan

      Last 4 champions have held the title for well over 100 days.

        Yeah I got that from @richardsmith , I don’t know maybe I’m getting older and the days are going faster and it doesn’t feel that long! Get me a zimmer frame!

        • No1LitaFan

          Haha, I think richardsmith posted his comment as I was typing mine!

  • llele!

    DAMN THEY LOOKED A HOT ASS MESS AT THE END LOL #RATCHET

  • Jeff Grice

    Stupid! I love AJ but this makes her look weak that she needs a distraction to get a cheap victory. I’m pretty sure the WWE is gonna turn Brie into a huge face now that she is linked to Daniel Bryan. Personally, I’d rather see Brie as champion then see Kaitlyn win it back!

    • DivasChampAJ

      WWE tries so hard to get HEAT on AJ!

      • Ap

        Why dont they just turn her face, since she cant get any heat on her

        • Elite 4 Sam Jones

          lol they just love her, she’s not the type of heel to get booed. She’s the kind they like, she’s funny & what not.

          • Ap

            When TLC comes this year; it would have been a year since Aj has been a heel. To me Kaitlyn would make a better heel than Aj; people like her to much, With Kaitlyn she can feel that avoid of Beth Phionex of power. I thought Aj and should have done a double turn at payback.

            hopefully, Aj and Nattie should do a double turn at the next ppv; which would be better for both of them

          • Elite 4 Sam Jones

            Truuuu AJ is doing well as a heel though, idk if she would be this liked as a face. I type boring :x

        • SomebodyCallMyDaddy

          the only way AJ will get heat is if she starts talking shit directly to the crowds , I feel like wwe is afraid to turn her completely heel since she sells a lot of merchandise and the kids still love her, but they don’t want her face because she’s the best heel diva they have right now

          • Brandon

            I see her as a perfect tweeter who will do anything to keep her belt…even hurting those close to her

          • Ap

            Thats true. Double turn between her and nattie

          • Ap

            thats why I know she is not a legit heel. When she did the whole pipebomb she should have talked directly to the crowd and the girls that watch it that would have got her heat.

            But u also dont want the crowd to accidentally turn her face either because it would defeat the purpose

    • Brandon

      I really wish brie would’ve turned around and gotten the black widow

      • Ap

        I think Aj has an injury

        • Brandon

          I hope it’s not serious

          • Ap

            Its almost been a month since she has gotten it

  • Richard Smith

    ok it so obvious that nattie is going win the title off aj. she deserves it. she the one that get feck all time on show. and brie and nicki get the most and she the most experienced 2

  • LIGHTSOUT

    The only thing that I liked about the match was Brie’s missile dropkick.

  • OJ Von Erich

    Loved the match, all 4 divas played their role well, Brie looked on fire tonight & this feud has only just begun!

    Tamina’s choke on Nikki was perfection, she’s a beast!!!

  • OJ Von Erich

    Brie Bella tweets…

    “I’m sad I lost tonight but I didn’t loose my confidence. I won’t give up. I’ll keep tryin until that Championship is mine! #WWEBattleground”

  • ????? KING ?????

    Something is odd to me about how Nikki was looking like it was planned or something her facial expression walking up the ramp the match was descent nothing great im going to need AJ to bust out something new an attire a move a hair color style cut something cause i know have to agree with Cryssi its getting stale one thing about Victoria Daffney and Mickie crazy character was that it never got old you never knew what to expect from them

  • Mark

    And yet again… I was RIGHT. I said in one of the Redux’s “I have a feeling they paired Tamina with AJ so Tamina can screw Brie at Battleground.” Can’t find the link/quote!

    Looking at all of this, it’s like, yeah, it’s not “perfect” but the Diva’s division has come SO far in the last few months. Actual feuds with proper time and character development. It’s a big, big deal. Hopefully we continue to move in this direction.

    And I have a feeling they put Tamina with AJ because AJ will defend the title. Tamina will help her get a cheap victory over Brie.

  • OJ Von Erich

    I swear WWE read my comments, I mean I recently started showing Nicole Bass love & now they turn Tamina into her! =P

  • loops

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSS!!!!!!!! I can sleep well tonight.

  • HOLLA

    Nikki vs tamina!!!

    • Mark

      Yes, Nikki VS Tamina on Raw would be amazing! And then it ends in a no contest because Brie and AJ get involved and then a brawl breaks out! YES PLZ.

      • Elite 4 Sam Jones

        or they might make it a tag match >_>

  • Jtiera

    Tamina I’m dying all I kept think was “1-800-choke -dat hoe” I can’t wait to see what happens next.

  • thenotorious1

    Random note am I the only one who thinks pink doesn’t go with tamina?

  • jen07201

    Any predictions for Raw?

  • Mark

    Any links for the match????

  • http://noreallyitstrue.wordpress.com/ AdrianRay

    Yes! Exactly what NEEDED to happen!

  • FOXY & FLAWLESS

    I pray WWE does not have Tamina fade into the abyss during this feud. Tonight was the proof that WWE can use her as a strong and intimidating diva. I want to see Brie vs Tamina tomorrow on RAW and, for once, I want to see Tamina win, even with AJ’s distraction and Brie turns into a super kick — but I want to see Tamina win so she can begin to be put over as a threat. This would ultimately lead to the Total Divas cast backing Brie, of course, to even the playing field against Tamina in AJ’s corner. It just sucks that WWE is so inconsistent with building Tamina’s monster character

    • http://noreallyitstrue.wordpress.com/ AdrianRay

      I can’t wait for the Tamina/Tapa debuts to start up! Lol

  • nismos69

    Tamina finally made her statement

  • Brandon

    Tamina just made me laugh loud. Brie was fighting aj and all of a sudden the camera shows tamina strangling nikki XD

  • Matty Marie Ziggler

    Well…at least I predicted something.

  • DivasChampAJ

    Tamina ? Two Statements in a ROW.Leid Tapa tried to choke Velvet LOL.

  • Brandon

    Aj destroyed bries arm and I was waiting so anxiously for her to apply the black widow. This totally made me think of wwe 13 because I target the arms like crazy until I make the bitches tap lol

    • DivasChampAJ

      Girl bye Lio does the work.

      • Brandon

        He wears you and your partners arms down and I get the submission victory muhuhhahaha

        • DivasChampAJ

          I debuted my Super Bella Buster on you (AJ)

          • Brandon

            But I kicked out :)

          • DivasChampAJ

            Tamina ran in and tried to strangle me.

          • Brandon

            Lol we should make taminas signature a choke :D
