There were plenty of familiar faces backstage at Hell in a Cell. Rikishi brought several members of his family to the show. They hung out with Naomi, Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso and Tamina Snuka. Michelle McCool was spotted at ringside, as her husband was in the main event of the pay per view. Sitting next to her was Candice Michelle, who recently gave birth.

When WWE brought up Sasha Banks, they needed a couple of girls to join her in a stable for the divas story line that they were working. They chose Naomi and Tamina Snuka since the two of them had already started working together as a tandem on television. If Cameron had her ways, she would be the one in the group instead of Tamina. She revealed that recently during an interview with Maria Menounos.

Even though she is one of the more talked about performers on the show, Naomi revealed that she has been officially removed from the cast of Total Divas. WWE has been wanting to get rid of her story line with Jimmy Uso for quite some time now. It should be noted that she was dropped from the cast once before, only to have the people in charge change their mind and bring her back.

A rather interesting segment took place on the latest episode of Total Divas. With all of the girls pestering her about needing to be more aggressive in the ring, Naomi was trying to figure out just how to do that. In a not well thought out attempt to help her coworker, Alicia Fox decided to throw a glass of water on her. That caused quite the scene, and the restaurant was forced to kick out the former Funkadactyl member.

There might be some backstage heat towards Naomi because the ending of her match during the Smackdown taping this week was botched terribly. She was supposed to have been rolled up by Charlotte but momentum carried them over and she ended up receiving a win that she was not initially scheduled to. She then showed frustration on camera, which doesn't make sense since she got the victory.

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.

Since the company has to be extremely careful with the words that they use, WWE has asked Naomi to come up with a new name for her finishing move. Slaymission is no longer allowed because of the term slay, which is associated with murder. The athletic diva took to social media to ask her fans for help with the new name.

To fill out the pay per view even more, WWE has decided to do a triple threat match for the Divas Championship at Elimination Chamber instead of building it up for Money in the Bank. Nikki Bella will be defending her title against both Naomi and Paige, who recently made her television return after taking some time off to film a movie with Miz. Since plans were changed so rapidly, there is no word yet on who will be walking out with the belt that night.

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.
