Hello everyone and welcome to the return of the RAW Review.
This week on Monday Night RAW we saw Naomi Knight take on AJ lee in non title action. What happened during the match? Let’s find out…
We return from a commercial break to see Naomi Knight with Cameron Lynn accompanying her to her match up. Naomi was sporting a brand new eyepatch which was in the shape of a star. I don’t know about you but I’m loving the eyepatch on Naomi. I think it’s really unique. Her opponent for the evening, AJ Lee makes her way out to the stage with her bodyguard Tamina Snuka with her for this non title match. AJ lee skips down to the ring as she shows off her brand new t-shirt that’s available on WWE.com.
The bell rings and as soon as it does AJ Lee begins mocking Naomi Knight’s eye injury by covering her eye and pretending that she’s blind. That doesn’t last long as Naomi takes AJ down with a hard dropkick and follows it up with yet another dropkick! AJ gets back to her feet and Naomi hits a few forearms, backing her into the ring ropes. Naomi goes to irish whip her into the ropes but AJ turns it around and sends Naomi into the ropes instead. Naomi slides under the bottom rope and gets onto the ring apron, waiting and stalking her opponent AJ Lee. AJ charges forward but gets met with a hard right kick to the side of her head from Naomi. Naomi leaps back into the ring and ducks a clothesline attempt. Naomi goes to hit the rear view and end the match but AJ grabs ahold of the ring ropes and exits the ring. AJ then claims that she “doesn’t need this” as she has the divas championship and grabs her title belt from Tamina Snuka before she begins to skip away. As she does, she causes herself to lose the match via count out.
AJ Lee thinks that she’s done for the night but boy is she wrong. As soon as she gets counted out Vickie Guerrero makes her way out to the stage. Vickie tells AJ that she heard the comments she made about her on SmackDown last week and isn’t one bit happy about it. She even goes so far as to call AJ a bitch! She tells everyone that she came here tonight to announce to everyone that AJ will be defending the divas championship in a match, but not just any match, a Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational. Vickie announces Naomi, Cameron, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Natalya Neidhart, Eva Marie, Emma, Aksana, Alicia Fox, Summer Rae, Rosa Mendes, Layla, and Tamina! All the Divas announced come out to the stage, joining Vickie as Tamina laughs and AJ begins to throw a fit, screaming and crying as the show goes to a commercial break.
For the first time in a while they actually progressed a storyline. AJ Lee has gotten under the skin of all the divas and now it looks like she’s getting her comeuppance at WrestleMania XXX. Not only that – but it also continues the tension between Tamina and AJ which has been teased over the last few weeks. The divas title will be defended at WrestleMania for the first time ever and it’s the first time in 7 years that any female title has been defended at the event. I for one am very excited to see how the next two weeks go as we head into WrestleMania.
