Today in History: Brie Bella vs. Stephanie McMahon, AJ Lee vs. Paige at SummerSlam 2014


On this day in history:

August 17th, 2014 | At SummerSlam 2014, two major changes came to the Women’s division. First, Paige won her second Divas Championship, defeating AJ Lee. Paige had lost the title two months prior, so this win served as both payback and a big birthday gift. She pinned her “frenemy” after hitting her with the RamPaige, capping it all off with a rather sarcastic post-match hug.

Later, Stephanie McMahon return to the ring for the first time in several years, taking on Brie Bella in what was the culmination of a high stakes tête-à-tête. Brie seemed to have victory well in hand, having neutralized Triple H and cornered Stephanie alongside her sister Nikki. Out of nowhere, though, Nikki decked Brie, setting her up for a match-winning Pedigree from Stephanie. With one move, Nikki had officially sold out her sister.

What are your memories of these moments?
