I mean, Nikki and Brie rammed Ronda head-first into a steel post twice in the span of like ten seconds. That's not enough cheating?

Not nearly enough.

My gripe from the show? Molly Holly and Alundra Blayze getting eliminated from the battle royal very quickly. Bull. Sheit.

Was Alundra is wrestling shape? It has been a long time since she was in the ring.

Sasha's had a multitude of injuries due to her recklessness

I don't know where you're getting that from. She's missed time due to injury twice.  The first was when a ref inadvertently  kicked her in the head at a house show.  The second was most recently, she was out with concussion like symptoms and nobody knows the when or how.  When they had her lose the title back to Charlotte due to injury one time, they thought she injured her back but she was fine and back in action the following week.

Speaking of celebratory photos, this group selfie from Charlotte Flair's twitter is lovely:

Should've been posted in the Kayfabe in 2018 thread.

If we're using your parameters of relevancy she fell on the top of her head from a reverse rana in the same match with Bayley you're championing her for pulling off a (ref assisted) tope con hilo and spent time off following that.

That's just one example.

That's a poor example and is this "ref assisted"  ...  just know that there are dozens of her hitting these moves that you say she can't perform. What's your end game?

Evolution was mostly sold out. It did better than most house shows and live smackdowns for attendances.

Again you are posting a planned spot. She is supposed to fall short, Asuka is supposed to kick her  She hits them regularly.

I'll concede, she hits them cleaner than Brie Bella at least.

My point still stands, she executes her high flying moves awkwardly, she isn't athletically gifted to pull them off regularly, but she tries to anyway. She's botched dozens of times. She excels with base work. Stomping on the fingers, ragging on the limbs. It's those traits that made me really gravitate to her in NXT when she was a heel. All of these gif examples are kinda petty in the overall argument that she should stick to what she does well, rather than what she sucks at.

You'll see more of that when/if she's given some time but more often than not her and Bayley are given little time to tell a story so they are out there just doing spots so you're going to see Sasha either A) trying to do a big move or even more often than that B)  bumping huge off someone else's big move like last night where she was taking all kinds of punishment. 

No fault of her own,  this is what she's become as a wrestler until she is given something more to work with.

But her high flying stuff is still bad.

My favorite part of the opener was the wrestle mania callback tease of when Trish grabbed Mickie in a headlock, and the brief look Mickie gave...

So what does Becky do from here? We have Survivor Series and TLC coming up with no obvious challenger.

Some ideas - 

Nia cashes her title shot in on Becky. I cant remember hearing that Nia's shot was for the RAW title so this could be a loop hole for a once off match at SS. Plays into the 'RAW v SDL" thing too.

The IIconics jump her. A match against Peyton at SS and then maybe a handicap TLC match against The IIconics?

She helps Charlotte... just to beat her again. SDL have a tourney to decide the #1 contender at TLC. Charlotte makes the finals (maybe vs Asuka?) and Becky interferes to HELP Charlotte, only to turn around and explain that she did it because beating Charlotte is just too damn fun/easy/satisfying.

F/u from @L_W_P's ideas ... Why not one of the legends from the show going after "one last run"? Other than Trish, who would be one of the legends that would be the most fun/credible in that scenario? (Though Becky/Trish ... damn.)

Who's Ronda facing if not Nia? Brieeeeee?

 

Vince will eventually want Bliss or Charlotte to beat Ronda.

Would Lita die if they did the "Xtreme" TLC match?
