Looks like they’re going straight through to Paige vs. Tamina at Extreme Rules. And I’m fine with that.
Couple that with that “leaked” RAW script listing AJ as “injured” and her status as “TBD”, it looks like they will be in fact giving AJ a much needed and well deserved break.
I like this for two reasons:
1.) To give Paige time to get herself over on the main stage with a good program with a few girls, and a very nice title reign. I eagerly anticipate her match with Tamina, and if done right and built properly, when AJ does make her return, it will bump up the selling point for an AJ/Paige title match at a PPV.
2.) After a lengthy 2+ year push as the top Diva in the company, combined with a couple of scary injuries, arduous media interviews and appearances, traveling, and not to mention recent stressful tension (possible legit heat with the Total Divas, Beadlegate, and of course Punk’s walkout.) AJ just needs a rest, and the WWE is gonna give her one.
Not to mention…. she has a wedding to go plan. ;)
Heal up AJ, we’ll be waiting for you. Just don’t get fat on your honeymoon.
