NXT Diva Anya, who hails from Russia, has been released from her contract.
Sorry for the late post.
Recently NXT has been heating up with the current Summer/Paige feud and this week proves that the feud is still going strong as Paige makes her presence known in Summer’s match; however, Summer has a new enrollee in her Summer School session and that is Natalya.
Take a Look Below:
I honestly believe NXT is the premier place for WWE’s Diva Division. The matches here are so lengthy and the feuds are way better than anything we have seen on RAW and SmackDown. I love Paige & Summer’s feud and I feel NXT is building up to having these two be the last women in the NXT Divas Title Tournament with either one winning and then ending their feud.
Onto the match. I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. I feel the hold for hold wrestling between Nattie & Summer was brilliant especially since we don’t get matches like these with the 2 minutes the Divas normally get to put on a match. I feel Natalya is WWE’s best female wrestler right now and I think she can do no wrong in the ring and I could see her being a trainer somewhere down the line. I feel she’s a great person the newer Divas can learn from similar to how Victoria was for Trish & The Bellas. I love Summer Rae in every way. I think her overall look and attitude mirrors Stacy Keibler & Michelle McCool. Her aggression in the ring is marvelous and I hope she ditches Fandango soon and begins in ring competition on the Main Roster. I was a little confused with Paige’s appearance because she cost Nattie the match, but let’s see how things play out from that.
In the next coming weeks we are having the NXT Divas Title Tournament and I know Sasha Banks, Emma, Bayley, Paige & Summer Rae are competing, but I hope WWE debuts Charlotte in time for this and I say toss Alicia Fox into the fray for the title.
GPA = 4.0
Paige & Summer’s feud on NXT has surely been heating up over the past few months; however, I thought that last weeks grudge match was the end for the feud, but I guess not.
This week on NXT Paige takes on Bayley in what is Bayley’s third match and third loss.
I thought it was an okay match, but it was very random in my eyes. Bayley is not a staple on NXT like Paige, Emma, Summer or Sasha. She falls into Audrey Marie’s corner of being an irrelevant Diva in NXT. I liked the aggression both women displayed especially Bayley since she is often manhandled and then pinned. I think they worked great together, then again I do still feel the match was random for being booked. I loved Summer’s involvement at the end attacking Paige because it continues their Barbie versus AntiDiva feud that they have going on. I feel WWE should bring back the Bra&Panties match so they could have an embarrassing match where Paige would strip her to her underwear. I also feel NXT needs to utilize their other Divas more. We have yet to see Kendall Skye, Anya or Charlotte debut in the ring so they need a chance to shine. With the introduction of the NXT Divas Title we may see more women step up in NXT to face off, but only time will tell.
GPA? 3.4 out of 4.0
NXT has been developing the new crop of Divas to a T. Honestly every NXT Diva that has been showcased on NXT has proven that they are all capable of handling themselves in the ring. Paige and Summer Rae are two women whom shape the NXT Divas division in my eyes and week in and week out these two have clashed, fought and done everything to each other to signify a great feud.
Lately the Paige/Summer feud has not dwindled in the slightest with each week something new about their feud comes up and the feud just becomes so much more better. This week Summer finally had no place to run to as she had to go one on one with Paige in what I like to call a BITCH FIGHT!
Take a Look Below:
I LOVEDDDDDDDDDD THIS MATCH!!!!! I know I am a huge stan for Summer Rae, but I loved every bit of this match and not just because of her flawlessness, but because when she got her ass handed to her she really took her bumps perfectly. NXT has built Paige up as this dominant, aggressive wrestler than just so happens to be attractive while Summer is your pretty, petite blonde that just to happens to be a great wrestler. I loved how NXT put up a video package of their long feud so the audience knew exactly why Paige and Summer hated one another. The match in itself was great as well. Summer took her bumps with no form of precaution in my eyes. She was flung and tossed around so many times. One thing that gave me goosebumps was when Paige flung her into the ring apron. I JUMPED OUT OF MY SEAT for that one. I also love that WWE is letting Paige, a diva, show so much aggression and anger. She really worked Summer over and countering that heel kick into the Paige Turner was genius. I hope that now their feud is over and both can move onto the main roster.
Does whatever happen on NXT have no weight results on what happens on the main roster shows? For instance, Summer has already been called up as Fandango’s valet so if Paige gets called up would she just ignore Paige or their NXT feud would not matter? Another instance is when AJ lost to Kaitlyn for the Divas Title. AJ had won her shot on RAW in a battle royal then lost her title shot, but the other day WWE during a backstage segment it seemed as if AJ had not had her title shot as of yet. I’m utterly confused.
Anyway, great match. GPA – 3.9 out of 4.0
Flavor Of the Week is back….. with a twist! Since WWE.com has all but abandoned the Saturday Triple Threat (replacing it with ONE featued Diva or “special” Diva Focuses such as ‘never-before-seen’ photos and ‘best of’ galleries), and Knockout photoshoots have been slagging drastically, Flavor Of the Week is now known as ‘Flavor Of the Month‘! The same rules apply. You vote for the shoot you liked the best this month. The shoot with the most votes will be crowned as ‘Flavor Of the Month‘. Easy peasy, am I right? ;)
BUT! The fun doesn’t stop there! At the end of the year we will combine all Flavors Of the Month into one giant poll to determine who will be ‘Flavor Of the Year‘!
This month we were treated to shoots from Aksana, Brie Bella, Kaitlyn, Rosa Mendes, Tamina Snuka, Angelina Love, Trish Stratus, Audrey Marie, Charlotte, Emma, Paige, Sasha Banks, Summer Rae, Miss Tessmacher, A.J. Lee, Gail Kim, Mickie James, ODB, So Cal Val, Tara, Taryn Terrell and Velvet Sky. Be sure to click on the thumbnails to view the full shoot!
Poll and thumbnails are behind the cut!
NXT has really been heating up as of late. WWE has been doing a great job signing independent talent that can just debut on NXT in a short time since they’ve already been trained. WWE has also been great continuing this Summer and Paige feud. This week’s issue of NXT we see Paige issuing a challenge and Emma awkwardly dancing her way around Bayley.
Both segments are featured below:
The backstage segment was pretty intense. I feel NXT really knows how to handle Diva feuds and obviously Paige vs Summer is one that WWE and NXT is trying to continue because its continuing really intensely. It really seems that they both HATE each other for some weird reason. Anyway, my thoughts aside I really enjoyed it. Paige is very intense and her promo was good enough to carry the segment until Summer attacked her from behind. It didn’t seem forced or rushed, but did its job. I LOVE EVERYTHING SUMMER RAE DOES!!!!
Now onto the match.
I HONESTLY TAKE BACK EVERYTHING BAD I’VE SAID ABOUT EMMA EVER!. I was extremely impressed with her this week. I felt she was charismatic, had charm, looked great in the ring for the once and had a huge pop during her entrance, after her win and during the match. I think NXT got it right with Emma now. She is on the same page as Paige (see how weird that sounds lol), as one of the top NXT Divas. I loved her ring work especially how she utilized that Tarantula submission in the corner .. BRILLIANT!. I liked Bayley also. For this being her second match on NXT she did pretty well also. I however feel she looks very masculine and not really what WWE searches for in a female wrestler, but they may have strayed from the cookie cutter look. Bayley got a nice chant during the match as well, but in the end the EMMALUTION has started and Emma got the win with a submission. YOU GO GIRL!!
A+ this Week due to the match and feud continuation.
It’s an NXT invasion in this week’s Diva Focus, as WWE.com has delivered us photos from our future Diva prospects!

Sunday marks the 29th annual WrestleMania event - the biggest wrestling event of the year – and every year for the past God knows how long, the Divas have been an after thought in the event with matches thrown together with little to no build up and with random celebrity guests. This year we’re being treated to an eight person mixed tag match featuring the Funkadactyls and the Bella Twins. However, using the current crop of WWE and NXT Divas, Team OSD pick their dream WrestleMania matches for this Sunday.
Marcella’s pick: My dream match with ONLY the current roster would be a huge 12 Diva elimination tag match, where the Diva that scores the last pin fall becomes Divas Champion! So it would contain the hellacious heel team of The Bella Twins, AJ Lee, Aksana, Rosa Mendes, and Tamina against the foxy face team of Cameron, Naomi, Kaitlyn, Layla, Alicia Fox, and Natalya. Oh but, excuse me, I’m not done! Vickie Guerrero, the Queen Diva, would be the special guest referee as she is the only one to control all 12 of these Divalicious competitors. Though, I’m not too sure of who would win, I could cast a prediction that Vickie Guerrero would not have a problem declaring herself Divas Champion! Hey, I did say the last Diva to score a pin fall would become champion….watch out for a smart cougar!! RAWWWR!!
