Paige visits Mark Carrano and tells him that she wants to get a tattoo – either a sleeve or a chest piece in honor of her mother. Mark warns her that her body is a brand now, and he doesn’t think getting a tattoo is a good idea. He says he will run it past the creative department to see what they think about adding it to her character – Paige is excited because there is a small chance that they could say yes.

Paige heads to work and Mark Carrano tracks her down – he tells her that the creative department has nixed her idea to get a tattoo. She can’t just change her body over night, they just came out with a new line of action figures of her and they don’t have the tattoo on them. Paige is furious – she thinks that it is her body and she should be allowed to change it however she likes.

Paige heads to the tattoo parlor even though Mark Carrano told her not to get a tattoo. Rosa and Alicia panic because they know that Paige is going to lose her job, they call Nattie for back up. Nattie tries to reason with her and tells her that if she thinks getting a tattoo is more important than her career in the WWE then she should go for it. Paige announces she is getting the tattoo anyway – and goes in to the room with the tattoo artist. Nattie, Rosa, and Alicia are devastated they think Paige is making the biggest mistake of her life. At the last minute Paige changes her mind and doesn’t get the huge chest piece she had picked out. She did get a tiny tattoo on her thumb though just to prove that it is her body and she can whatever she wants to it.

Paige vs. Nikki Bella

The term “Anti-Diva” implies a certain amount of solitude, but give Paige credit: She’s still got some friends, however unlikely, in the Divas division to bail her out of a beatdown when all’s said and done. This came in handy after her Divas Title Match against Nikki Bella, granted as a result of the controversial conclusion to the title bout at WWE Fastlane.

Despite Nikki’s unexpected deployment of power maneuvers, Paige rallied to lock in the PTO until Brie, who was roaming at ringside, jumped The Diva of Tomorrow to end the bout in a disqualification. Further humiliation followed the final bell, until AJ Lee, of all people, skipped her way down to the ring and joined forces with Paige to drive Nikki and Brie back. Why team with the woman who ended her record-setting title reign, you ask? Well, as the saying goes, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. ‘Nuff said.

Winner: Paige
