A lot of us who watched RAW last night were confused about Paige. Why is it that the tough as nails, ass kicker that many of us know was absent? Paige instead played the role of a kind but unsure rookie coming to congratulate AJ. Why?
My opinion this, and this is just a hypothesis, leads me to point out the fact that when Paige did win the Divas title off AJ, she shed tears. This is the same as what happened when she won the NXT Women's Championship at the tournament. This is because of Paige's great love and respect for the business.
But it would've looked pretty out of place to the fans at Post-Mania RAW if an aggressive anti-diva started crying after laying waste to the former Divas Champ.
Paige can easily reveal to AJ that it was but a ruse to lead her into a false sense of security, allowing her to get the win more easily, and compounding the budding feud. But temporarily abandoning Paige's usual persona so as to not cause confusion among the fans was a smart move.
Maybe I'm reading too far into this.
