  1. Here’s hoping, that match should be awesome when it happens, even if it would have been cool back when Kairi was a face. Two things that struck me watching the handicap match is how Asuka and Charlotte are excellent at making their work feel like a fight, and how even during submissions they’re always moving and struggling so it doesn’t feel like a rest hold. The pacing was great too, it was basically all-action for fifteen minutes.
  2. And her style doesn’t really use much chain stuff anymore. I also think it’s a problem that aerial moves are so prominent in her moveset when they’re a weakness.
  3. Fun show on the whole, but two moments that mystified me: - The level of protection Sasha got with NXT having to cheat despite Rhea being a face, Sasha being a heel, and Sasha not really doing much besides being Bayley’s lackey at the moment. It undercut NXT’s win for no real reason. - The post main-event segment, which undercut Shayna’s win, made Becky look like a bad sport, and felt like the most pointless ‘Hogan must pose’ sequence we’ve seen in a long time. I also felt the three of them lacked chemistry, with a very slow pace and some pretty striking botches like them messing up Bayley’s sunset flip bomb into the corner. And that’s besides constant Ronda teasing all night that didn’t get paid off. It was an odd main event.
  4. Right, plus the difference with say Stone Cold is that there was always Vince as the foil trying to screw him, and sometimes it even worked, which in turn created easy motivation for revenge. Becky by contrast has commentators and on-air figures fawning over her and wearing her merch (see for example Road Dogg when he appeared on Raw earlier this year), and gets booked so incredibly strong that there isn’t really any suspense and no one comes out of a Becky feud being elevated. Indeed, they often get taken off TV for several weeks afterwards.
  5. Yeah, I had no issue with her beating Kairi, but it was overkill also having her beat both of them up beforehand, as the feud heads towards her beating Asuka too cause apparently she needs 'revenge' for Asuka beating her at the Rumble even though from the way Asuka disappeared off TV afterwards, it was pretty transparent the whole point was so Becky could then win the Rumble on one leg later that night. Her booking is really something, and its basically been like this for eighteen months now.
  6. I did notice they left the convenient wriggle-room of the Women's tag titles being able to float across brands.
  7. I was mystified by why they had Charlotte and Becky do so much promotional and advertising work for SD-on-Fox only for both to seemingly end up on Raw. As it stands, this is the entire SD women's roster: Bayley/Sasha/Lacey/Carmella/Tamina.
  8. And drafting Alexa and Nikki separately! The USA Network.
  9. It’s kinda crazy how heavily she’s being used for Bayley’s benefit since Mania, after being used for Becky’s before. Their April SD match got fans excited about Bayley again, then Bayley cashed in on her at MITB so Becky didn’t have to lose it that way, and now after getting a 4 minute match with a comedy ending in her hometown, she’s being used again to try and get Heel Bayley over. It’s tiring. I hope it works at least.
