WWE News: Paige returns as leader of new stable of NXT call-ups
Well, this was a shocking turn of events but what else should you expect from WWE on the night after one of their Big 4 pay-per-views? But for everything to make sense, we have to back it up a little bit to when Alexa Bliss came out to talk herself up.
Although Bliss lost at Survivor Series to Charlotte Flair, she was still her biggest fan. Five Feet of Fury talked about her own accomplishments and said nobody could face her and then Mickie James came out followed by Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Alicia Fox. All four women wanted a piece of Alexa Bliss.
As Bliss exited up the ramp to get out of the tough situation, Kurt Angle appeared at the top of the ramp and informed Alexa Bliss that she would be fighting the winner of the fatal four-way that was to ensue. Then a match between Bayley, Banks, Fox, and James commenced.
However, this #1 contender's match didn't see a true winner as Paige's music broke out and the first-ever NXT Women's Champion emerged on the entrance ramp. She asked if people missed her and received a huge "welcome back" chant in reply from the packed Houston crowd.
Paige cut a nice little promo and then disclosed that she didn't come alone. At that point, two NXT Women standouts jumped in the ring and made their main roster debuts. Mandy Rose, a woman best-known from Tough Enough, as well as Sonya Deville, an MMA trained, Tough Enough alumnus as well as WWE's first openly lesbian Superstar, jumped in the ring.
This new stable laid waste to the women in the #1 contender's match only giving Alicia Fox the chance to run for the hills while screaming in terror.
It's a great time to be a pro wrestling fan once again if you've been missing The Diva of Tomorrow because she's back and seems to be better than ever.
It didn't stop there though as Paige was interviewed with her new friends backstage and Alexa Bliss walked up to congratulate them for taking out her competition. Paige said it was sweet of her and then she introduced her friends to her.
Suddenly the pleasantries were over and this new stable of females jumped Bliss and sent her crashing into some crates and a large metal door backstage. They laid in some boots to Bliss and walked away after making their very solid point.
