Who yall got for women's tag titles? Personally I'm rooting for Absolution.
Actually wouldn’t mind them winning the titles, when chaos meets crazy
they'll give it to Sasha and Bayley just cause, then we'll have to patiently wait until Sasha throws Bayley through a barber shop window
Almost turned off when I saw stephanie saw the footage of Becky's injured leg, grabbing her right knee. Her left knee is in the brace
I gave up
Been a great hour of Raw so far.
Kairi and Io
After seeing their Lucha Underground match with Pentagon, I'd love to see them in the elimination chamber. Maybe we will in 4 years.
Paige has to become someone's manager or something when she gets back from her movie tour, yeah?
the fact that they gave them a name makes me think they’re going to be part of the tag division.
They have suggested they were considering moving the tag titles between all 3 brands, but hadn't decided. Allegedly. So I guess they could come up for a PPV and then take them back to NXT? Idk, won't be elimination chamber.
Heel turn for Nikki Cross ... okay
Jeff Jarrett is a five star, 6.1 carnie
Slapnuts would have broke the guitar. Double J is washed.
So, the storyline suspension of Becky Lynch. A cover for her to have actual surgery?
Has Dean been working house shows? I've gone back and forth on whether him leaving is a work or not. I was thinking it was but I don't think they've addressed it on TV since. Idk.
Didnt she switch which knee she was selling? I doubt that is the case then
Just a bullishit reason to drag Charlotte into a match she shouldn't be in IMO
Yes she did, although I read an article today that her and Seth Rollins missed a house show for legit injuries last week.
probably has its own 6 pack
he was jumped before the match and already hurt to begin with
Oh hey there's Dean.
Double J was/is involved in a raw broadcast?
Lol dgaf Dean is fun
Where’s EC1 and 2?
Alexa is smitten.
Dean cutting entertaining promos. Sucks it’s on his way out the door
Gonna turn Dean into the Brooklyn Brawler
Corbin wrestling in his chili’s manager attire makes me irrationally annoyed
They are just going to get Dean more over by treating him like a jobber. He will be on fire by the time he shows up to challenge Kenny Omega.
I’m still not convinced that it isnt a work
obviously right here
Do love her
The clips I've seen from the new season are hilarious.
I just don’t understand Vince’s need of adding Charlotte to this match.
I don't understand why Charlotte is as beloved by fans as she is.
She's good but she's not remarkable. Of the four (Charlotte, Sasha, Bayley, Becky)...
she's the third best in the ring: Becky, Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley
she's the third best on the mic: Becky, Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley
she's the fourth-most beloved by smarks: Becky, Sasha, Bayley, Charlotte
But the moment they debuted on the main roster, and everyone said Sasha was the one to watch, it was obvious from day one who Vince wanted to push as the "face" of the division. I don't get it.
#1 Ronda can't carry this feud for 2 and a half months. Charlotte adds something else in to allow the feud to run that long
#2 Charlotte is Vince's wet dream of what a female wrestler is supposed to look like
#3 Every match Charlotte is in she fucking delivers. More than anyone else she kills herself in big matches.
I don't watch anymore, but it seems like she was the female version of Roman
1. Becky’s been carrying this feud the last 4 months, what’s another 2 months. You heard that reaction from the crowd last week
2. Tall and blonde, got it
3. Fair enough but this match practically wrote itself the moment Nia Jax broke Becky’s face. They’re only putting her in this match as a reward for hard work, not because it’s the hottest feud at this time.
From a story perspective it actually makes plenty of sense for Charlotte to be in this feud since she has beef with both Becky and Ronda and both have issues with her. I'm not opposed to it being a 1 on 1 match, but I feel like people are needlessly shitting on Charlotte. She's performed at every turn since being called up. I've always loved Becky, but lets not act like she's been the greatest thing her entire run. Her in ring work is good enough, but what carries her is her natural charisma and charm. I think people putting her above Charlotte for in ring work are insane. Hell a lot of people in this very thread were happy when she lost the title to Alexa Bliss and then cheered on Alexa after that. No one was moaning about how they can't believe they took the title off of Becky.
1. That Becky vs Charlotte feud had a clear defined winner in The Last Woman Standing Match at Evolution.
2. No one was moaning about Becky losing the title at TLC to Asuka because we all saw the bigger picture in the narrative, Becky vs Ronda at Wrestlemania for the Raw Women’s title. This came about because we were denied that match at Survivor Series.
3. That whole Charlotte has beef with Ronda dynamic goes out the window if Becky was never injured because the finish for the match between her and Ronda was the same planned finish for Becky.
4. We already saw Charlotte end Asuka’s streak, why does she need to be in this one too? They need to shine the spotlight on someone other than Charlotte in the division.
5. We get it Vince, Becky wasn’t meant to be the face of the division and arguably the entire company, yet here she is despite all your mechanization.
Exactly, and this "Charlotte gets everything handed to her" narrative only plays into the "Becky against the world" story. So basically you're adding a heel who will get the kind of reaction you want and has put on the best matches of any woman on the planet the past year to help crown the hottest thing in wrestling during the first ever women's Mania main event. No, the match does not need Charlotte, but I absolutely believe her addition makes it better, I fail to see the reason for outrage.
You can want the 1on1 AND think Charlotte is really good and deserving of a Wrestlemania main event spot. These aren't mutually exclusive thoughts.
That said, I want the 1on1 more, even if I think it makes sense for Charlotte and if I think she has proven she can live up to it.
