Rivalries between friends turned foes have always been some of the most exciting storylines in WWE history. One such feud has started between former NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin. Although highly popular, it seems that Dolin is not the one who will be positioned as “the star” in this rivalry.
Dolin and Jayne were a top tag team as part of Toxic Attraction and captured the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles while their leader Mandy Rose was the NXT Women’s Champion. However, the two have been at odds since Rose’s release from the company.
During an episode of Bayley’s “Ding, Dong, Hello” show, Jayne brutally attacked Dolin and kicked her head through the show’s prop door, turning heel. While Dolin beat Jayne on NXT, it is reported that she will not be positioned as the star in the rivalry.
While speaking about the rivalry between the two, Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer noted that it’s very clear that Jayne will be positioned as the star coming out of this program.
“It’s very clear they are positioning Jayne as the star, but they want a longer program with the two and thus started with a Dolin win and Jayne beating her down after the match.”
The angle between Jayne and Dolin has been compared to the classic angle when NXT VP of Talent Relations and Creative Shawn Michaels turned on Marty Janetty. Michaels had super-kicked his old partner and threw him through a window. Jayne spoke about getting Michaels’ “blessing” to re-do some history during an interview on Busted Open Radio.
”Then, kind of getting Shawn’s blessing to re-do some history there. That was a big deal for me. I didn’t want to mess it up. I didn’t want to screw up. I wanted to make a memory.”
With Triple H as the Head of Creative in WWE, classic storylines are being re-invented and throwbacks are happening more and more. It remains to be seen which of the two women will come out on top and become the bigger superstar in WWE.
