As expected, WWE issued an official statement on the controversy segment that played out at the end of Monday Night Raw last week. The message was kept very basic and short, but management essentially stated that it was Charlotte that pushed for the mentioning of her dead brother by Paige. Those close to the diva are refuting that notion because they feel that it was not up to her.

In a sign that she is moving up in the eyes of management, Paige is being sent to the Conan O'Brian show this week. She will be promoting Hell in a Cell and the upcoming WWE 2K16 video game. Management generally does not trust performers easily when it comes to making media appearances because they need to know that you're going to present yourself properly. Being good at this role usually results in being rewarded with a push.

Merchandise sales have long played a part in WWE deciding who to push. That bodes well for Paige, as it has now been revealed she sells more action figures than the other divas. Since kids are easier to influence, it should come as no surprise as baby face divas sell more products than their heel counterparts. Being on Total Divas also helps the female performers move merchandise as well.

For those that were not aware of it, WWE is now pushing Naomi as the top challenger to Nikki Bella and the Divas Championship. That was the point of the six women tag team match on Monday Night Raw. Management had her team up with AJ Lee and Paige as a way to transition the champion to a new challenger in the story. The title feud will more than likely be featured on the next season of Total Divas, as the cameras have been rolling all week long.
