WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella vs Paige (WWE Main Event 01/06/15) I just knew these two had a great match in them. I was so pumped for their Fast Lane match based off Nikki's recent performances where she has just been stiffing the fuck out of everybody and playing the cocky mean heel to a tee. Bad News Barrett and Cesaro take notes. Paige vs Emma was an awesome fight and I knew Paige could hang with her. What we got at Fast Lane was a good bomb throwing sprint, but due to one egregious botch and very anti-climatic finish led me to wanting more. On the PWO-PTBN Reaction Show, Pete mentioned they got some time on Main Event. My Lord, they did not disappoint with best WWE women's match I have ever seen. It was a hard-fought, non-title match with Nikki proving that she was every bit of a great heel as any of the man and that Paige has legs as a chippy underdog face. The early lock ups told you this was going to get nasty and I loved Nikki dropping to her back to monkey flip Paige over. Paige just has the nastiest kicks to the midsection. They look like something out of Naoki Sano's playbook. Paige was just attacking her with headbutts and knee strikes and really bringing it to the champion. She was always keeping the crowd involved screaming "This is my house", which got a nice pop. Nikki repeatedly headed for the hills to try buy herself time. After a wild slap, she took a powder in that moment when Paige tried to give chance she wrenched her arm and Paige took a wicked bump onto the floor. Then from there Nikki just tortured Paige's arm twisting in every direction and stomping it at every turn. It was not all about the arm work, Nikki was constantly showboating with nonchalant covers and being a general hot dog. Paige did a really good job selling the pain and timing her hope spots. Usually I am not a fan of the Thesz Press, but Paige's punches out of it looked great better than most men. Nikki should stick to elbows because she can really rock those, her lariats are a bit suspect. Paige really started mounting a comeback and off the distraction we get Nikki yanking Paige off the top turnbuckle by her bad arm. Awesome! Nattie decks Brie and Nikki floors Nattie, but this allows Paige to roll her up. Nikki bucks her off. Nikki on top and Paige kicks out. Nice elbow by Nikki and Paige monster kick to the head. This gets really weird as Paige hesitates but is not really selling. She hits the RamPaige for the non-title victory over the champions. A few hiccups along the way (Nikki's lariats, the rollup sequence and Paige's weird selling), but overall a great match. Nikki combined stiff offense, great limb work and cocky persona to hook you into the match. Paige is a great fiery babyface with some great asskicking offense that can go toe to toe with Nikki. This an easy Free TV Match of the Year Contender and an awesome match. ****
