A familiar face could be winning the SmackDown Live Women’s Championship. According to a recent rumor released by Cageside Seats, WWE officials are set to have Nikki Bella win Team Blue’s Women’s Championship.
Nikki will be one of six women competing for the title at Backlash, SmackDown Live’s first exclusive Pay-Per-View. The possible reasoning behind putting the championship on Nikki is to help establish credibility for the new title. As a proven in-ring competitor and longest reigning Diva’s Champion, the WWE feels like Bella is the strongest contender for the inaugural win. Insiders all agree that fans should not expect a long reign from the former Champion, but one that will be used to help establish another top star in the Women’s Division.
