AJ Lee retains WWE Divas Championship but suffers concussion

Here's the video of AJ Lee defending the WWE Divas Championship against Brie Bella from Sunday's WWE PPV. The match is nothing special with a terrible ending. But there are a couple of things I wanted to talk about. Early in the match, AJ has her head slammed into the turnbuckle. She finished the match as planned but arrived at RAW yesterday in Pittsburgh showing concussion symptoms. She was sent home after the WWE doctor examined her. Who knows how long it will take for her to return? So the latest on this angle is AJ's paranoia has alienated all the other Divas and she has hired the physically imposing Tamina Snuka to be her bodyguard. This was influenced by Shawn Michaels and Diesel in the 90s. Of course Tamina is the daughter of Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka. She is just returning from a concussion herself. The WWE has attempted pushes of Tamina over the last couple of years and each time they just stopped pushing her. Her problem is she is 36 years old and is relatively inexperienced at pro wrestling considering her age. And when the WWE has attempted to push her, that inexperience has been fairly obvious. This new role looks like it may be a last chance for her. As I said, the match was OK. The one thing I did not like was the showboating by both girls in a title match. As crazy as AJ is supposed to be, she shouldn't be showboating in a title match. One thing I would like to see is the WWE should bring Mickie James back and do an program with AJ. I don't care if they are rivals or allies. But I know Mickie can elevate AJ. And it may be time to bring Paige up from NXT. She can be plugged in to this angle and will do great. Also, I am starting to wonder how long The Bella Twins are going to hang around. Of course they are getting a lot of airtime because of the Total Divas show. But Nikki still hasn't returned from her ankle injury. I don't know if she will ever be an active wrestler again. Meanwhile, Brie seems unhappy with her face turn. And she has announced her engagement to Bryan Danielson. My guess is they will marry on Total Divas and then The Bella Twins will quit the WWE. Brie will want to be off the road to start a family. And they have done a couple of movies that will be out by that time. I wonder what the WWE will do to try to keep them but that's what happens when they hire girls who really don't want to be wrestlers. Enjoy the video!
