After a bit of talk about the amazing Last Man Standing match that just took place, King, JBL, and Cole are interrupted by Alicia Fox, who makes her way to the ring to next to no reaction (to be expected after that last match).
Paige makes her way out to the ring next, and she gets a bit of a pop on her way to the ring, but these two have a heck of a task following that last match.
WWE Divas Championship Match
Paige vs. Alicia Fox
The bell rings and both women begin circling before locing up. Paiges arm drags Fox, but ends up tosses from the ring. Paige charges in with a forearm before heading back into the ring and driving Fox down across her knees. Paige sends Fox to the apron and hits a couple of knees to the chest before suplexing Fox back into the ring for a two count. Paige hits Fox with a couple of rapid fire elbows in the corner that send Fox to the floor. Fox cries out and points at Paige, which leads Paige to come out to the apron. Fox pulls Paige’s feet out from under her, then interacts with a couple of fans ringside before being backed into the barricade. Paige pops her before standing on the ring steps, but Fox pulls her off to the floor. Fox sends Paige into the barricade, then brings things back into the ring for a one count. Fox says Paige wants to ruin her face before driving Paige face first into the mat. Fox hits a nice Northern lights suplex for two, then wraps Paige’s arms around her own neck and digs her knees into Paige’s back.
Fox rips at Paige’s face, and is forced to break the hold. Fox walks over Paige, then picks her up with a big tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Fox bends Paige over her knee, stretching her out. Fox slams Paige to the mat for a two count. Fox hits another tilt-a-whirl backbreaker for another two count. Fox picks Paige up again, then simply tosses her through the ropes and to the floor. Fox heads to the outside just to bring things back into the ring. Fox misses a clothesline and Paige connects with a single leg drop kick, then three consecutive clotheslines. Paige runs into a high knee in the corner, but blocks Fox from going to the top and pulls her down into the mat. Paige goes for the PTO, locking it in and stretching Fox back. Alicia is forced to tap out.
Winner and STILL WWE Divas Champion: Paige
Following the match, Fox stands up and screams. Then she looks around and smiles angrily as the crowd chants ‘you tapped out’. Fox holds up a hand and yells ‘Silence!’. She continues to yell at the fans, stomping up and down on the apron.
Fox runs to the back, upset at the outcome, flailing her arms and legs on the way.
We get a quick check-in with out expert panel, which is not just Booker T and Alex Riley, along with Josh Matthews, since Kofi Kingston was pulled into a match during the pre-show. Booker T says Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella slapping Stephanie McMahon stood out to him. Riley says Bray Wyatt withstanding the shot from the ring steps was what stood out to him. Matthews brings us back and lets us know that now it’s time for the main event as he throws it to a video package that highlights how The Shield and Evolution have been feuding over the last couple of months, and what has led to the match tonight.
