Back in July 2008 when Michelle McCool defeated Natalya in a tournament final to become the first Divas Champion, the WWE Universe was slow to embrace the new title. The Women’s Championship had long stood as the standard-bearer for female wrestling with a lineage that dated back to The Fabulous Moolah’s emergence as champion in 1956. What did this new title have going for it besides a strange butterfly faceplate? Over time, though, the Divas Championship became the focal point of the division as it enveloped the Women’s Title while making stars out of Beth Phoenix, Maryse and, most recently, current champion Nikki Bella.
#1 AJ Lee — 295 days
By the time AJ Lee had the date she won the Divas Title permanently inked across the nape of her neck, you knew her championship reign wasn’t just some passing fancy. It was a love affair — a particularly enduring one that began on June 16, 2013, and has lasted for 295 days. In the face of varied — and ever-improving — challengers like Natalya, The Bella Twins and Naomi, AJ didn’t just defend the Divas Title; she elevated it. Her Gollum-like obsession with her precious gave the championship new worth, and by the time Paige wrestled it away from her, you knew it was a prize worth fighting for.
If there is something we all know about AJ, is the fact that she was always one step ahead of everything…and everyone. Seriously! If you don’t think –setting up your ex-best friend into what we would call “A pretty evil tactic”, mess with her head into a championship match, JUST to get the divas title– is one of the smartest plans you’ve seen? Then, let us explain why it is.
It all started with two best friends who called themselves the “Chickbusters”, and really, they had the cutest friendship ever! But somewhere, somehow…this one goatface managed to sneak his way into AJ’s heart. Now, don’t get us wrong. She was a little warrior, or a spitfire as many called her, but we all have that sensitive side, no?
Long story short, Daniel Bryan broke AJ’s heart. And who was there to help her out? Kaitlyn. She tried so hard to help her friend, to make her REALIZE Daniel wasn’t good for her! Ultimately asking her friend to open her eyes and realize Bryan had changed her, she just…well, she just wasn’t the same anymore.
There’s a slap-a-thon somewhere in this. Oh yeah, AJ slapped Kaitlyn twice, letting her…now former best friend know that, they weren’t friends anymore and most importantly, she wasn’t crazy.
The story gets a little bit complicated at this point, sorta. Don’t tell AJ we’re saying this but she was…crazy. (She really was, but she hates it if you say that word, so please cooperate and keep it between us.) Her love life became a HUGE mess, there were all these guys that just couldn’t resist those flirty looks and her sweet smile…and they all fell for that. Just ask CM Punk! (No, seriously! She pushed him off the turnbuckle, making the poor guy land on a table…he fell hard I tell you!)
While AJ struggled with her heart and everything else, Kaitlyn was fighting her way into the Diva’s championship, ultimately capturing it on January 14th 2013 against the now -also- former diva, Eve Torres!
The journey begins:
Let’s fast forward to April 22nd, 2013! The day AJ became the number one contender for the Diva’s championship after defeating the other divas in a battle royal! How, you wonder? By being a smartass, as always!
So there’s that! Both Chickbusters are pretty much on cloud 9. In one hand you have Kaitlyn and the divas championship. And on the other you have AJ dating Dolph Ziggler (let me tell you, he was pretty nice to her most of the time…until the break up…but we’ll tell you about that some other time.)
Of course our resident geek goddess wasn’t satisfied, because everything she ever wanted, everything she fought for…was just a few gifts and texts away. So let me explain this…basically, Kaitlyn started to receive texts and gifts from a secret admirer. To say the Texan was pretty much -in love- with a person she didn’t know, would be an understatement. One thing’s for sure though, AJ managed to charm her former best friend.
“But even shattered glass, if you handle it wrong? Can cut you pretty deep.”:
This is the part where I introduce to you the one and only Big E! (Also adopted by both AJ & Dolph time before this). On June 10th 2013, Kaitlyn find out her secret admirer was willing to introduce “him”self to her, publicly…in the middle of the ring…(I know, that doesn’t sound good at all and it really wasn’t.)
So there we have the beautiful Kaitlyn, waiting for her secret admirer! And nope, it wasn’t Big E, it was; AJ. “How are you feeling right now, Kaitlyn? Worthless? Alone? Broken? Well that’s exactly how I felt when you abandoned me.” Long story short, the self-proclaimed savior of the Diva’s division played mind games with her former best friend, trying to make her feel…what SHE felt during those horrible times with all those superstars who broke her heart while she was fighting her way into the Diva’s championship.
About damn time we get to the date we, as AJ fans, are commemorating today! June 16th 2013 (Payback)…the day she became the Diva’s champion in one of the BEST diva matches in WWE history, where we just didn’t see two women fighting for a championship title, but two former best friends, going at each other, trying to prove themselves in front of one of the loudest crowds, Illinois. With one spear courtesy of Kaitlyn, the whole WWE Universe thought the small diva was done. But the emotions got the best of the champion, taking too long to pin the challenger and ultimately only reaching the count of two. For AJ one black widow wasn’t enough, using a second one to finally secure the win over the Texan champion.
“I’ve been working for this for fourteen years.”:
After tattooing the date of this wonderful moment on the back of her neck, AJ went on to become the longest reigning Diva’s champion of all time! Scoring 295 days as the champ, defending it against every single diva that conformed the main roster. However, on April 7th 2014, AJ lost her title against the debuting ‘Diva of Tomorrow’ Paige…but you know? That’s a story for another time.

By now, the news has sunk in that AJ Lee has left WWE. Though it’s no less sad to see a trailblazer like her walk a different path, the WWE Universe can now, at least, look back fondly on what made AJ so unique in the first place. From her look to her talking skills to her incredibly memorable stint as Raw General Manager, here are eight things we’ll miss most about our beloved Black Widow. (more…)
Paige, AJ Lee & Naomi Vs The Bella Twins & Natalya
The Divas division got their moments in the sun on The Grandest Stage of Them All, from the tag team match that saw The Bellas fall to “The Frenemies” to Natalya and Naomi involving themselves in the Fatal 4-Way WWE Tag Team Title Match on the WrestleMania Kickoff. And each Diva who stepped onto The Show of Shows got a chance to show why they received that honor with a Six-Diva Tag Match on Raw. And show they did.
The Divas dished out some significant punishment to each other, with AJ Lee (showing NXT’s Bayley some love) taking the brunt of it when Natalya & The Bellas isolated her from her group. The peak came when Nikki contorted AJ into a bow and arrow, but the former Divas Champion rallied to tag in a fresh Naomi to take over against Nikki Bella. Naomi’s best offense turned out to be a good defense when she ducked Nikki’s forearm, leaving it to smash sister Brie in the face instead. With Nikki shocked at her mistake, Naomi attacked with the Rear View and brought it home for her team.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — To say the relationship between AJ Lee and Paige has been a “little strained” is like calling Justin Bieber a “tad overexposed.” When not wrapped in a series of increasingly awkward embraces, the two Divas spent much of 2014 at each other’s throats. That bi-polar dynamic, however, worked to their advantage as AJ managed to capture a Divas Tag Team victory over The Bellas for herself and her “English muffin,” Paige – at WrestleMania 31.
The icy relationship between AJ and Paige began to thaw on March 2 when The Black Widow returned unannounced to rescue Paige from a two-on-one Bella beatdown. With their focus on common adversaries in Divas Champion Nikki Bella and twin sister Brie, the former “frenemies” unique bond appeared to reluctantly solidify over the course of the next several weeks. Yet when a ring mishap cost Paige a chance to take Nikki’s title on Raw one week before The Show of Shows, the duo’s frosty friendship seemed just about over.
During The Show of Shows, Paige and Nikki kicked off the action. The Divas Champion took control of the match when her sister Brie joined in with a flying dropkick into Paige’s midsection. As for AJ, she was thwarted from tagging in after being knocked off the ring apron three times, twice by Nikki and once by Brie.
Although she certainly had her hands full, Paige managed to kick out several times, including once after enduring Nikki’s back-breaking Rack Attack. When the fracas spilled outside the ring, Paige was finally able to crawl back in to make the critical tag. The former longest-reigning Divas Champion mounted a flurry of offense before being able to lock on her Black Widow submission hold, forcing “fearless” champion Nikki to tap out.
And although The Bellas were dealt a humiliating blow at The Show of Shows, the fact remains, the Divas Championship is still tucked firmly under the Bella umbrella. How long it remains there, though, is another question. And will it be AJ Lee or Paige who does the asking?
@ShawnMichaels: I see AJ and Paige as the outsiders, with Paige as the newcomer, of sorts. The Bella Twins have come a long way and really improved a lot, along with the Divas division. I think this one goes to The Bellas. WINNER: The Bella Twins
@HowardFinkel: Just when you thought AJ Lee and Paige were getting along, the events of this past Monday night shattered that myth. There are definite problems between the two, and The Bellas are right in the eye of their storm. The fragile bond that was recently rekindled between AJ and Paige will now be tested this Sunday, and to me, it’s purely an oil-and-water situation. As long as the tension remains in the air, then The Bellas will score the win, perhaps with “relative” ease. WINNER: The Bella Twins
@JoeyStyles: Enough! I’ve had enough of Brie & Nikki tearing down AJ & Paige for not resembling bronzed bikini models. I’ve had enough of Nikki routinely retaining the Divas Championship only because of Brie’s interference. You know who has even less tolerance for The Bellas’ better-than-thou bluster? AJ & Paige. With both Nikki & Brie in the match, unless they have a long lost Bella triplet, there will be nowhere for the twin terrors to hide. I can’t predict that this is exactly how the match will end, especially given the obvious problems between Paige & AJ, but I would love to see simultaneous submissions to the PTO and Black Widow. WINNER: AJ Lee & Paige
@Apter1wrestling: I I cannot realistically see AJ & Paige winning. They are fine singles competitors, but new as a tag team. The Bellas are on the same wavelength, and although they will take a beating, they will emerge as victors in this Divas grudge match. WINNER: The Bella Twins
