Those that watched Monday Night Raw this week surely noticed that Paige was not on the episode to continue her feud with the Bella Twins, who worked a tag team match against Naomi and Tamina Snuka. The reason for that is because the Pale Princess was down in Florida, taping segments for Tough Enough. WWE is placing a priority on that.

In a match that failed to generate much of a reaction from the audience, Naomi and Tamina Snuka managed to get the win during a tag team match against the Bella Twins. The move was a bit predictable because the Divas Championship was not on the line. WWE is setting up an eventual title match, so the audience got a sense that this was simply a transitional match. That is why the girls were unable to get to connect with the audience.

During the Divas Championship match, WWE tried to trick the fans by having the Bella Twins work as baby faces. Brie Bella did the routine where she constantly tried to encourage and motivate her sister from ringside. However, everything ended when Brie decided to give a roundhouse kick to Naomi, which enabled Nikki to hit her Torture Rack finishing move and get the win. The belief is that she will drop the belt to Paige soon.

Since Paige might not be available because she is filming a movie and Naomi just did a heel turn, WWE is looking into the possibility of Nikki Bella working as a baby face when she defends the belt against the latter at Extreme Rules on Sunday night. They even tested out the audience reaction at a live event during the tour of Europe last week. The face turn might not necessarily be a full time thing, however, as management likes the Bella Twins as is.

Rumor has it that the Bella Twins have been pushing hard to get their own spin off show. They want to do so because it would provide their friends and family an opportunity to gain more exposure on television. WWE is hesitant because they fear that Total Divas would not be much of a draw with Nikki Bella and Brie Bella, as they are viewed the stars of the show. There is also said to be some backstage heat towards the sisters from the other divas for this.

In a move that was widely expected, WWE announced that AJ Lee and Paige will be teaming up against Nikki Bella and Brie Bella at Wrestlemania. The two baby faces were long candidates to be on the card because of their popularity. Management knew that it would appease the fans. The Bella Twins were also long considered as candidates to be a part of some type of divas match at the pay per view because they are the centerpieces.

Those that watched the season finale of Total Divas on Sunday night witnessed Nikki Bella and Brie Bella opting to not renew their contracts with WWE. The show is taped months in advance, so this has caused some confusion on their status within the company. Since they are still on television, there are those that believe that the Bella Twins signed a short term contract extension for the sake of keeping things a mystery. Nikki and Brie might still leave soon.
