Charlotte will face her first test as Divas Champion at WWE Hell in a Cell, when she defends her title against its previous holder, Nikki Bella.
The second-generation competitor has been at the forefront of the Divas Revolution that has taken over WWE in recent months. As part of Team PCB, Charlotte, along with Paige and Becky Lynch, sought to help bring about change in how the Divas division is perceived. Their first goal was to get the Divas Championship off Nikki Bella, who ruled the division with an iron fist and turned away all challengers for 301 days, breaking the record for the title’s longest reign.
Charlotte nearly ruined Nikki’s run at history during a championship match on Raw in September, but Nikki and her sister Brie used a bit of Twin Magic to ensure that the title stayed around Nikki’s waist. Because of the twins’ treachery, Charlotte was granted a rematch at Night of Champions, where if Nikki was disqualified, she would lose the Divas Championship. That stipulation never came into play, as Charlotte fought through a knee injury and locked on the Figure Eight, forcing Nikki to submit and earning the Divas Championship.
The new champion’s celebration was cut short, as Paige lashed out at her partners. Things only got more complicated for the champion as her defense against Nikki was announced in a Facebook exclusive video on Oct. 5. With her first title defense looming, could Team PCB’s recent turmoil distract Charlotte from holding on to her title? Or can she prevent Nikki Bella from reclaiming the title she held for 301 days?
