Newcomer Paige has her second, and first legit, Divas Championship defense this Sunday at Extreme Rules, when she takes on Tamina Snuka. On Main Event a few weeks ago, Tamina last eliminated Natalya to earn the #1 Contender’s spot, leapfrogging her former friend AJ Lee, who never got her contractual rematch.
Stephen’s Take: Can’t see Paige dropping the title this soon after getting it. But Tamina is a good challenge for Paige to overcome as I do believe Tamina dominates most of this match. Paige will get a good fight in there, and retain her title. Just like Rusev’s match, who’s next for Paige is the bigger story.
Stephen’s Prediction: Paige retains
Mike’s Take: Poor Tamina, the payoff for her bodyguard storyline with AJ Lee is that she now is going to challenge for a title that she can’t possibly win, with AJ nowhere in sight. It might be fun to see Tamina win the title, then have a feud with AJ when she returns, but when it comes to Divas right now, it’s Paige’s world and the rest of the Divas are just living in it.
Mike’s Prediction: Paige retains
Predictions for the three main events are still to come, plus the Triple Threat Elimination Match between Rob Van Dam, Jack Swagger and Cesaro.
