For the past several weeks, the WWE divas have seen a rising support from the audience because management is finally putting more of the spotlight on them. Things went downhill on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, which was held in Brooklyn. The fans did not show respect to the girls, which led to backlash from Paige, Alicia Fox and the others on social media. Management asked them to take down some of the posts, however.

Earlier in the week, Scott Hall posted a message via social media to Paige. He joked that she was a naughty girl who needed to be spanked. That received quite the backlash from the internet wrestling community. The popular WWE diva defended Hall by explaining to everyone that it was merely a joke. Hall defended himself against several critical comments from fans.

While the company would never publicly admit it, WWE views the divas division a lot differently than they do their male counterparts. Former writer Kevin Eck recently revealed that the creative department was instructed to not go with the typical baby face versus heel mentality when writing stories for the girls. Eck stated that it hurts the feuds when fans do not have a clear cut person to root for, such as the feud between AJ Lee and Paige.

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.

To prepare fans for the divas match at Extreme Rules, WWE has been utilizing Nikki Bella and Brie Bella as baby faces on television. However, as of right now, management is not committed to doing a full fledged face turn. The reason for that is because they still want Paige to receive her shot at the title when she gets back from filming a movie with Miz. The goal is for her to be the one to remove the belt from Nikki. Naomi is considered a filler for now.

In a rather interesting bit of news, Vivid Cabaret ran a poll where they asked their performers about which celebrity that they would want to work topless with them. Katy Perry, Kate Upton, Rihanna and Scarlett Johansson made the list. Rounding out the top five is a person that WWE fans have been yearning to see more of. Paige was surprisingly voted in. It is highly unlikely that the front office would allow her to do it, unfortunately.

Even though she is barely old enough to drink legally in the United States, Paige has already accomplished quite a bit in her life. Thus far, she has already become a WWE star, captured the Divas Championship and worked a match at Wrestlemania in front of 76,976 screaming fans. Now, she can add movie star to her resume. Management has announced that the Pale Princess will be doing a movie with the Miz called Santa's Little Helper.

In the fourth match at Wrestemania, AJ Lee picked up the victory for herself and Paige when she forced Nikki Bella, who teamed with her twin sister Brie Bella, to tap out to her submission finisher. Match was given a little more time than usual, so some fans will be pleased with that. With the way things ended, it appears that AJ might challenge Nikki for the WWE Divas Championship next month. She will more than likely regain her title.
