Backstage News On Nikki Bella Taking A Shot At AJ Lee During SmackDown Promo, Was It Scripted?

- As noted, WWE taped a segment with The Bella Twins, AJ Lee and Paige at the SmackDown tapings that took place following last night's WWE RAW in Los Angeles.

The segment was described as one of the better Divas promo segments in recent memory. One line that had a lot of fans talking was when Nikki Bella told AJ Lee that Brock Lesnar defended the WWE World Heavyweight Title more dates than AJ did when she was Divas Champion.


If the line makes it to Thursday's SmackDown broadcast, then we know that it was a scripted line from WWE creative. It's possible that Nikki was going off-script, as she has done in the past, and if that's the case then the line might not make it to TV.

Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter adds that there is some heat on AJ for how much time she was away from the company. It will be interesting to see if the line about her reign as champion makes it to TV this week.
