I will say that I think Ariane has gotten much better at interviews/seems to have matured and gained a bit of perspective. :newspaper: You can see both sides of the coin, AJ really didn't seem close to any of the other girls/was obviously a little elitist and I'm sure wouldn't mind letting the girls look a bit dumb, but at that point Cameron had been working a bit and should've been able to hold her own. Her saying her stomach was hurting to avoid training/putting spots together before the match :rot:

I don't think it's that big of a deal it just seems AJ was hesitant working with Cameron versus someone like Naomi who was obviously more experienced. I mean I could see what Cameron was saying but at the same time, it's not like this was her second match on the roster where she still needed some guidance. Although a little bit would have helped she was already showing growth around that time so she should have been able to hold her own. "Tough love" is the proper term to use because at some point someone one is going to take that into consideration and that's all you will get. 

The stomach part took me out AJ didn't want any parts. :michael:  Just thinking about that match was supposed to be against Naomi still gets me tight they would have snapped in that match.

I see where she's coming from. However, Cameron should probably dial it back a BIT because If I remember correctly that match wasn't even advertised. So AJ really could of skipped it if she wanted to, but it sounds like AJ pushed through whatever she had so they could both have their moment on the PPV.

Godsuka vs. Cameron outsold and outstrihmed any AJ match after Payback 2013. She was a victim of the system!

Kyle’s thread serving even more purpose now. The division NEEDED a level headed locker room leader like Eve. Maybe we’re crying

Her teasing a return to WWE at the end like they want her ass back :ahh:

OT: Not surprised that AJ was difficult to work with Cameron. You could tell sis had no respect for the girls that couldn't go in the ring. 

Anyway i hope this interview gives her what ever little lick of exposure she needs

This is her experience with AJ so I won’t knock it, nor will I really take it as that’s how AJ really was. :frecklefox: AJ not wanting practice with her is a mess though, she practiced with Eva so maybe she just had diff expectations for Cam.

Wasn't this around the same time period Punk left WWE and was super sick?

I kind of do wish she did come back because I think she had a very strong character and would’ve done magic as a manager for someone.

i really don't think it's that deep. she just said aj was having an off day, so wasn't feeling up to practising a match that isn't gonna lead anywhere, which is fine. it is a tad bit suss that aj wanted the hit to the stomach but besides that, it's not even that shady or even a drag. she basically just said what happened.

also, the timing was around when punk left, so i don't doubt that she didn't care that much. it's not like cameron looked bad, she looked as decent as she always does.

no drama to be found here, just a lil' bit of info was shared

Also with AJ being bi-polar, she could've been in her depressive cycle, hence her not feeling up to practicing a match. I mean she was open and willing when working with Eva Marie, who was roughly around the same level(and that's being kind to Eva) skill-wise as Cameron.

    • Worst reign of terror?
      By Cooksie
      Long title reigns can really help build the prestige and honor one receives after finally dethroning a champion. However, for a linear WWE women's division in which multi-layered storylines and consistently protected protagonists are few and far in between, these attempts to build up a title through a champion are questionable in their effectiveness. 
      While there have been plenty of multi-month runs with women's championships in the past decade, I've narrowed it down to the five that are the most referenced and relevant in the current landscape of the WWE's women's division. Now, it's up to you all to decide which one was the worst.
      The candidates:

      Charlotte Flair as WWE Divas, and subsequently WWE Women's Champion, September 20th, 2015 to July 25th, 2016
      Two years ago, the wheels were set into place. With Charlotte Flair fresh off of defeating the longest reigning Divas Champion in history, Nikki Bella (we'll get to her) in the fall, WWE looked to capitalize on the extended focus on their Divas division by dropping the term 'Diva' altogether at WrestleMania 32 and debuting a new iteration of the WWE Women's Championship. Charlotte would defeat her fellow Horsewomen Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks at the event in the originally billed Divas Championship match to become the new Women's Championship, spending a whopping 309 consecutive days as the only female champion in the WWE (this is not officially recognized, as falls between two separate championships and already surpassed Bella's previously established record of 301 days atop the division).
      Though Charlotte faced a plethora of opponents ranging from rematches with Bella, Paige, Becky Lynch and Natalya before finally falling to Banks in the summer, at the time, Charlotte felt too forced. After failing to get over as a babyface while rivaling her much more popular heel adversaries, Charlotte was made into heel by the beginning of 2016 and became accompanied by her legendary father, Ric Flair. Flair was dropped by the spring, and Charlotte's heater became Dana Brooke, freshly called up with little to no real experience as her senior, Emma, had fallen to a back injury. While the two were entertaining, much hotter and more promising acts such as Becky Lynch, Naomi and Sasha Banks were kept on the backburner until Flair's defeat at the introduction of the brand split, which would mean more opportunities for these stars as well as the introduction of a new women's championship.

      Asuka as the NXT Women's Champion, April 1st, 2016 to August 24th, 2017
      Following easily one of the best matches in NXT and recent history in Bayley and Sasha Banks' clash at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, Bayley's reign as champion that emerged following that match would be ended by the next generation of NXT match-of-the-night generator; Asuka.
      A charismatic joshi star whose appeal transcended language barriers (poor Alexa Bliss), following her feud with Emma and Dana Brooke, the undefeated Asuka would vanquish Bayley at NXT Takeover: Dallas and become the new NXT Women's Champion. What was to follow was the longest reign in NXT history, male or female, and the only of these reigns to surpass a calendar year-- five hundred and ten days as the only female champion in NXT, all while also remaining undefeated in singles competition.
      During this time, just about every major female act in NXT got a shot and lost to Asuka. From Bayley, Ember Moon, the Iconic Duo, Nikki Cross, Ruby Riott and even a returning Mickie James, no one could feasibly defeat Asuka, something fans saw as a detriment to the credibility of these women going forward when Asuka finally left the division to join the main roster, all while still retaining the undefeated streak that remains to this day. One that apparently extends to mixed tag team matches where Asuka is not even competing, yet her streak is on the line. *sigh*

      Nikki Bella as the WWE Divas Champion, November 23rd, 2014 to September 20th, 2015
      We remember it like it was yesterday. Following dirty laundry, appearances on Jerry Springer, Daniel Bryan cosplays and this next entry wishing her twin sister had died in the womb, the unbelievable happened-- The Bellas reconciled. With a shocking kiss to the lips of AJ Lee, Brie Bella ensured that Nikki Bella would easily squash the once undefeatable Lee to capture her second Divas Championship (the first one being only a week long before the Bellas originally departed from WWE). With a year of Total Divas momentum behind her and being the first cast member to win WWE's sole women's championship at the time, Nikki Bella seemed bigger than ever before and she was ready to take on all comers for the Divas Championship.
      It just didn't seem like management thought the same.
      Following AJ Lee's second hiatus and Paige's face turn, The Bellas would feud with Paige for the better part of SEVEN MONTHS for the Divas Championship. Other women served as interchangeable and quite literally background characters for The Bellas' extended feud with Paige that lasted beyond the culmination of the Fab Four's 2014 with a tag team match at WrestleMania, which would be AJ's final outing at the Show of Shows. Though one exception to the rule would be Naomi, whose sudden heel turn would suddenly turn the villainous Bellas into babyfaces for, well, a month while Paige finished shooting a movie. While Nikki Bella would ultimately surpass her rival AJ's reign as Divas Champion by the end before falling to Charlotte and the onset of the "Divas Revolution", her reign with the championship was another extension of a championship, while ridiculed by fans, was made prestigious through the passion and determination of its holder. Sort of like this championship reign...

      AJ Lee as Divas Champion, June 16th, 2013 to April 7th, 2014
      Perhaps this reign was the one that started them all. In June 2013, in what would become home turf for a female rising star intertwined with Chicago native, CM Punk, AJ Lee would capture her first championship in WWE by defeating Kaitlyn for the Divas Championship in a widely-acclaimed match. What was more controversial afterward, however, was the length of the championship campaign AJ would hold after that historic encounter. For 295 days, AJ Lee ruled atop the then still re-developing Divas division, aided by the return of the Bella Twins, the in-ring debuts of the Funkadactyls and the resurgence of Natalya as Total Divas, a reality show focused solely on select women within the WWE, was introduced into the fray. After the departures of division mainstays such as Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix, Eve Torres and Michelle McCool in the past two years, the Divas division had faced a much understandable identity crisis in 2012-- the year when AJ would concurrently become the biggest female star, all without the championship. It was when she did finally fixate her attention on the title over main event Superstars is when the Divas Championship felt more coveted than ever before.
      Forever hotly contested on the servers of Heartbreakers.me, with fans debating as to whether it'd be the up-and-coming Naomi or the now bigger than ever before Bella Twins as to who would dethrone AJ, a plot twist of the century came after AJ had literally defeated every woman in the division at WrestleMania 30, when Paige would make her main roster debut on the RAW after WrestleMania and defeat AJ for the Divas Championship, in a moment even more iconic than when AJ first netted the butterfly title. And though the beginning and ends of this story are memorable, the middle part is up for contention. Constantly taking losses to her challengers before always defeating them on pay-per-view, as well as the feud between AJ and Total Divas lasting the entirety of her reign, it was difficult for acts unaffiliated with either party to get a head start. Veteran, but capable ring performers were left out of the narrative, while even Kaitlyn, who AJ had defeated for the championship, became an afterthought before quietly retiring months after. While the reign did well for the prestige of the Divas Championship, it may remain contested until the end-of-time as to whether it truly benefited the concurrent women of the division or not.

      Alexa Bliss as Raw Women's Champion between two non-consecutive reigns, April 30th, 2017 to August 20th, 2017 and August 28th, 2017 to the present
      Yep. With the exception of a mere eight days that comprise Sasha Banks' fourth reign as the Raw Women's Champion, Alexa Bliss has held the red, white and gold for a combined total of 313 days. With twenty days until WrestleMania 34 where Bliss is currently penned to defend the championship against rival Nia Jax, a final total of 333 combined days (which won't be recognized by WWE, due to again, an eight days' difference ) is likely for Little Miss Bliss. But that's if she loses.
      Despite coming in hot from SmackDown's efficient handling of her character, a sassy, quipping primadonna that'd obviously studied out of Trish Stratus' heel playbook, the only thing this pint-sized pay-per-view staple is serving Trish in is in the long ass reign department. Unlike Trish and unlike the rest of the entries on this list, Bliss has been juxtaposed by another women's championship throughout the entirety of her run on Raw, with SmackDown Live's women taking some attention and sting away with the first (two) ever Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match(es) and three separate reigns with the SmackDown Women's Championship in the past calendar year, from Naomi, to Natalya and now to Charlotte Flair. Unlike the other entries, the point of contention isn't in other women's opportunities being denied (Women's Royal Rumble, Women's Elimination Chamber). It's that Alexa Bliss isn't the main character in her own story anymore.
      Acts such as the previously mentioned Asuka, Jax and Banks have all withheld stronger support and interest from the crowd in their respective endeavors, and an honorable mention to the brief return of Paige that introduced Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose onto the roster. With at least four viable acts on Raw in addition to the unsung ballads of Mickie James and Bayley who received staggering losses of crowd support following how handily Bliss would defeat them in their respective feuds, the question lies as to why these women are all over the place position-wise where Alexa quietly and comfortably took a backseat towards the end of last year while these women were at the top of their game. Though the light at the end of the tunnel seems to be emerging, it's been a cold, dark and scary ride through, to say the least.

      So, which of these infamous reigns do you believe was the most unbearable for you or the most detrimental to their contemporary division?
    • Why is AJ Lee so in demand?
      By Cooksie
      Though her wrestling career is well in her rear view mirror, the WWE Universe is the clingy ex-girlfriend that just keeps leaving voicemails.

      From fans, talent to (seemingly) the company itself, ahead of the upcoming all women's pay-per-view, WWE Evolution, fans have been clamoring for an appearance of some sort from iconic three-time Divas Champion, AJ Lee. AJ, now known professionally as AJ Mendez (her real name) has been working in promotion of her New York Times best-selling memoir, Crazy is My Superpower, and as a mental health advocate since leaving WWE in 2015.
      Names such as Raw Women's Champion Nikki Bella, Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins and a WWE.com poll that was posted across all of WWE's social media pages had fans salivating at the idea, to which AJ has yet to really respond, it being understood that her stance towards the company hadn't really changed despite some fond memories.
      So, this begs the question: why is the demand for AJ so high? Do fans not have closure due to the abruptness of her departure? Has it been recognized that she is of more worth than frequent returnees and company acknowledged "GOATs" such as Trish Stratus or Lita? Is the larger demand outside of our women's wrestling forum due moreover to her marriage to disgraced UFC fighter CM Punk? Or can no other girl compete where they don't compare? Or rather compare where she no longer competes?
      Additionally, is this outward desire above all other choices productive as it pertains to booking potential returnees for Evolution? Would it be better for fans to put eggs in a basket still open?
      Discuss.

       
    • Today in History, August 26, 2013: A Much Deserved New One #PipeBombshell
      By Eric
      August 26, 2013, AJ Lee TORE the Divas Division A Much Deserved New One!
      August 26, 2013, the beacon of light for during that time AJ Lee tore the diva's division a much deserved new one. Shocked and confused as to why AJ turned down the opportunity to become a cast member of the hit reality show Total Divas, Vince granted AJ the opportunity to explain herself LIVE on Raw where she delivered one of the most bone-chilling DIVAS promos of all time which was named soon after the Pipe-Bombshell.
      Let's take a moment to reflect on this historic moment that will forever be in the books as one of the greatest promos of all time.
      Share your thoughts and how you felt during this time.
