According to a report from the Wrestling Observer (via Lords of Pain), Naomi’s storyline – attacking Paige, injuring her and forcing her to forfeit her Divas Title shot at Extreme Rules – was originally intended for AJ Lee.
AJ, of course, departed the WWE earlier this month, leaving the spot open for Naomi.
The report also claims that Naomi was originally set to turn heel a few months ago in the climax of her and Jimmy Uso‘s feud with The Miz, but the plan was nixed.
Naomi appears set to take Paige’s spot in the Divas Title match against Nikki Bella at Extreme Rules, but nothing has been set as of yet.
Would you have liked to see AJ turn heel on Paige?
