One of the more interesting things in WWE nowadays is the feud between AJ Lee and Paige. It's not so much about what has happened on television, as much as it is about what can possibly happen next. The creative department has teased sexual tension between the two performers, but management knows that it cannot go too far because of potential backlash from advertisers. With WWE needing to create a buzz for the product, it will be interesting to see how close to the line that they're willing to step.

Rumors leaked recently about Vince McMahon not being a big fan of Paige, which would explain why the creative department has not given her much to work with since she captured the WWE Divas Championship. That riled up her mother, who happens to be a professional wrestler in England. She replied on social media by denying the rumors and mocking wrestling sites for their accuracy. However, she later deleted the messages, perhaps realizing that she was adding fuel to the fire and hurting her daughter by addressing the rumors.

Reports have surfaced that Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to work Hell in a Cell 2014. The WWE champion has caused quite a headache for the front office.

A lot of fans are under the assumption that the stable consisting of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston has been disbanded. It's hard to blame them for thinking that because WWE has removed them from television over the last couple of weeks.

The creative department simply has not figured out a good way of using them.

When Brock Lesnar interrupted the birthday celebration for Hulk Hogan on Monday Night Raw last week, he went off script a bit. The former UFC Heavyweight Champion said, "Party's over, grandpa."

Alexander Rusev is posing a considerable problem for the WWE creative department nowadays. The staff was instructed to push him up the ladder, but they are now running out of options.

Sheamus has been named as a possible opponent to help Rusev kill time.

Rumors going around right now is that the impersonation gimmick that Damien Sandow has been doing is basically a way for the creative department to appease Vince McMahon, who has been known to find humor in stuff like this.

There are reports floating around right now that the reason why AJ Lee was not chosen to be a cast member on Total Divas is because she is married to CM Punk.

August 18, 2014
Rumors are going around that Ashley Flair has moved to the front of the line for a promotion from developmental to the main roster in WWE. There are some roadblocks in her way, though. Total Divas is set to become a major focus again very soon, so the writers will put an emphasis on them when writing Monday Night Raw. Flair might also have to wait a bit longer if Paige picks up more momentum in her feud with AJ Lee.
August 12, 2014
With AJ Lee finally making her return to WWE, the competition in the divas division just got a bit tougher. Someone is going to be losing television time. Naomi Knight and Cameron appear to be safe, as they have a heel turn story line in progress. Summer Rae and Layla El appear to have their weekly television spots secured for the time being. Paige is going to be working a program against AJ, so she should be fine. The belief is that Alicia Fox will be the one demoted, even though her character was gaining a little bit of momentum over the last couple of weeks.
July 5, 2014
Naomi Knight was given a crack at the WWE Divas Championship at Money in the Bank 2014, but it was Paige that walked away as the reigning titleholder after a DDT and a pin.

June 29, 2014
Rumors are floating around right now that Cameron will be doing a heel turn at Money in the Bank 2014. She will more than likely cost Naomi Knight her chance at the WWE Divas Championship. There is also speculations that the incident will then lead to a triple threat match at WWE Battleground 2014, which would also feature Paige as the champion still.
June 27, 2014
Since there are key members of management who are big fans of her new gimmick, Alicia Fox is expected to receive a nice push in the upcoming weeks.

It looks like WWE is throwing quite a bit of faith into Paige. Aside from giving her the Divas Championship on the special episode of Monday Night Raw following Wrestlemania 30, management is also sending her to the big Comic Con event in Chicago. This is considered one of the bigger events of its kind, so the fact that they chose Paige instead of a Total Divas cast member is a telling sign.
