AJ Lee beat the odds tonight at Night of Champions, fending off competition from Total Divas stars Brie Bella, Naomi and Natalya to retain her Divas Championship.
In a match that saw alliances dissolve early, Natalya performed an astounding double Sharpshooter on Brie and Naomi.
AJ took the moment to kick Natalya in the back of the head, locking her into the Black Widow submission and forcing her to tap out as the other Divas were prone on the mat.
Though AJ’s new allies Aksana and Alicia Fox appeared to be done with the partnership, and Layla was nowhere to be seen, she managed to make it on her own, despite her reservations.
The Total Divas weren’t able to make AJ pay for her harsh “pipe bombshell” promo, but we have a feeling that fight is far from over.
