While the company would never publicly admit it, WWE views the divas division a lot differently than they do their male counterparts.

During the Divas Championship match, WWE tried to trick the fans by having the Bella Twins work as baby faces.

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.
