Stephanie McMahonThe Storylines

-WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee came out and talked about being the best Divas Champion ever. She talks about breaking down Kaitlyn, betraying her friendship, and finally winning the Divas title. She says there is no other woman that is more dominant than her. Stephanie McMahon comes out and talks to AJ like she is a child. Steph threatens her, saying she could fire her if she wanted. Anyways, she leaves the ring after a great exchange of words. Kaitlyn and the rest of the roster come out, until Kaitlyn runs down and attacks the champion.

This was the first time in years that the championship feels like it means something. AJ Lee is the most over Diva since Mickie and Trish. I like this feud and feel like the addition of Stephanie is just the beginning of something really good. You may hate women wrestling, but I think there is a proper spot for them on the card. This was really good and brought attention to a dying division.

Grade: B

Triple H, Stephanie, and Vince McMahon try to one up the other in terms of working the show. They all bicker in the ear of Vickie Guerrero. Will this be the beginning of a feud for father vs. son in law? That is likely. I am going to sit back and enjoy the suit game from Vince, Stephanie's beauty, and the fact that we get meaningful characters back on television each week. It seems like Vince will be the heel, while Triple H is the face. This is logical and the best way to utilize both men to their fullest, even if it is not in the ring.

Grade: A-

Dolph Ziggler is now a face, while Alberto Del Rio cut a promo on the crowd and how he doesn't care about them. Ziggler is definitely liked by the majority of the fans because he has an exciting wrestling style. He may be really good at being cocky, but I do feel this double turn is the best way to get the most out of the World Heavyweight Championship feud. I just still think Del Rio is a guy that is so bland and boring on the microphone. He can sure wrestle, but is he really THAT good as a heel? If he was, he wouldn't have turned face 5 months ago. They needed to switch it up, so WWE make the right call here. I just wonder how they will separate Ziggler from Big E and AJ.

Grade: B
