On 7 April 2014 episode of Raw, Paige made her main roster debut in the WWE. She gave her congratulations to WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee on her successful title defense at WrestleMania XXX. Lee challenged Paige to a match and put her championship on the line. In the match, Paige was able to defeat AJ and win her first Divas Championship in WWE.
