New Divas champion crowned at post-WrestleMania RAW

WWE Divas champion AJ Lee was finally dethroned after 295 days by NXT newcomer Paige last night on Monday Night RAW.

AJ told the fans inside the arena that she was the “best Diva in the world,” resulting in a big pop and chant for her boyfriend CM Punk. The celebration was quickly cut off though as NXT Women’s champion Paige made her WWE TV debut to a thunderous pop from the New Orleans crowd.

AJ challenged Paige in a match however Paige said she wasn’t ready, and was slapped in the face for her answer. Eventually the match kicked off and Paige pulled the upset, pinning AJ with her Paige Turner finishing move.

The 21 year old British wrestler became the youngest ever to hold the Divas title and also the first one to hold both the NXT Women’s and WWE Divas title simultaneously.

After the match, Paige was greeted backstage by WWE Divas who congratulated her on her win. An emotional Paige then cried her way through an interview for WWE.COM which you can see below.
