  1. Drama amongst former BFFS?

    I mean, I’d be mad too if this little pixie girl was getting all the shine while I was withering away towards my 40s with little to no prospects, but it doesn’t stop Ms. Natalie Neidhart from keeping her mouth shut! Learn from your elders, sis!

    hmm, well, Nia and her 35-year-old ass needs to learn that she needs to behave in the public eye, BUT honestly the girls of this generation better run to the shoot interview circuit after they retire, and that’s all I have to add!
  3. Drama amongst former BFFS?

    There’s a way to behave when you know you’re in a position of privilege in the situation, whether you can do anything about it or not. Obviously I’d never expect anyone to want to lessen their chance at being at the top of their profession, nor can she control the way she’s being pushed, but there is a sense from her posts that she doesn’t understand why people are possibly frustrated with her. Obviously these are things out of the public eye so who knows, but she could show some sympathy if her ‘friends’ express their frustrations. I don’t think anyone would expect her to turn down a massive push, but humility and self-awareness go a long way.

    Not reading anything into it tbh, but Nia to me seems like the type to stand up for herself (even if she’s wrong) and not be afraid of the consequences of speaking up when she should just stay quiet. Aside from Asuka and Carmella, every other girl who put work into that event for an outcome that was unneeded and regressive to the division as a whole should be mad and should speak up for themselves. I’d prefer more overt displays of this, but obviously the girls don’t want to get in trouble. I know they’re just happy to be there and be doing a job they enjoy, but at some point you’ve gotta get mad or nothing’s gonna change. It’s maybe even more frustrating that Alexa’s subtle social media posts seem to show that she’s unaware of the way she’s been treated preferentially in comparison to girls who we see consistently working at an equal or greater level than she does. 
  5. he’s getting his life because he thinks their overdramatic delivery is appealing to the d*va fan demographic........ and he’s right
  6. Have Billie & Peyton's checks cleared yet or are they still sporting their musty gears?
  7. Raw June 18, 2018: Live Chat

    Raw reverting to their pre-Royal Rumble booking, just with the Riot Squad switched for Absolution?
  8. Not Moderated: Extreme Rules

    Why would someone put a close friend in their phone under their ring name? 
  9. Bayley kinda showed herself on the MR, tbh. She was crisp in NXT, but I think that without the time to prep spots and plan, she really struggles. Her ring work is nothing to brag about these days.  I do like this point, though, as it seems like the matches on weekly shows are treated as throwaways so they can save something for PPVs, when in reality the weekly matches are seen by a wider audience and are what is really going to prove their worth as competitors. Sure, they get a lot more time now, but it’s rarely utilized how it should be. 
  10. The result last night is still tricky to me. It seems almost like it was a matter of them booking the match on Ronda & Nia’s word that they could deliver—and honestly they were doing a good job imo—and then creative saying, “nah, we gotta turn this back around” and them only knowing how to do that by putting Alexa back in the forefront. I’m further vexed by the treatment of the MITB briefcase, especially considering Carmella’s tenure with it last year. I want to see how things pan out still.  I do think it’s fair to equate Sasha to a Molly type role at this point too, though sadly she deserves more, as did Molly. 
  11. Who is going to be a part of the roster with NXT hoarding all the capable indie gals?
  12. Since its introduction at Wrestlemania 32 in 2016, the Raw Women’s Title has seemingly become a polarizing image of the sometimes shoddy booking and clear favoritism of the Raw creative team. Even more infuriating (at first, anyway) was Lita, of all people, introducing the belt as the “first ever” WWE Women’s Championship before it was renamed to be specific to the Raw brand. The new championship did help to bring a new sense of prestige to WWE’s “Women’s  Evolution” angle by retiring the much-hated-by-the-new-generation Diva’s Championship and replacing it with a belt that suggested equality between the men’s WWE Championship and the new Women’s Championship. It seemed like a step in the right direction and like the women were finally going to be treated as the talents and attractions we knew they always were. Sasha Banks and Charlotte set the stage for this change, feuding from late 2016 and competing in the first-ever women’s Hell in a Cell match—also the first women’s contest to headline a pay-per-view event—as well as an Iron Man match and a Falls-Count-Anywhere match.  The title changed hands 6 times during this period: July 25-December 18. While the constant changing of the championship was aggravating, humorous, and/or perhaps unnecessary, these two competitors were able to solidify their own in-ring abilities and prove that this new Women’s Championship was, indeed, a prize for the best of the best. Charlotte ultimately came out holding the title for a longer span of time than Sasha and with more reigns, but of course, her booking has always consistently reflected her familial ties rather than her in-ring prowess. With a short, forgettable reign from Bayley following the Charlotte/Sasha extravaganza, Alexa Bliss was moved to the Raw brand following Wrestlemania 33, and almost immediately entered the title scene she previously dominated on SmackDown Live, winning the Raw brand’s prize on April 30th and not losing it until August—but only for 8 days when Sasha Banks held the Championship for a brief 4th reign. Alexa’s second championship reign lasted 223 days, bringing her combined total days as Raw Women’s Champion to 335 days, almost a full year aside from the week Sasha held the championship. And, then—of course—she regained her title last night, just 70 days after losing it to Nia Jax at Wrestlemania 34. With Alexa Bliss winning the title last night at the Money in the Bank event, the title has changed hands 13 times over the course of a little over two years, with  5 different women holding the title. This may seem like an incredible amount of changes for such a short period of time, but let’s not forget that this is not the first time a Women’s Championship has been exclusive to the Raw brand. Chyna’s untimely departure from the WWF in late 2001 left the Women’s Championship vacated and available to a new generation of competitors who were just beginning their careers. At Survivor Series that year, 6 of (arguably) the most memorable women in the company’s history competed for the vacant title, with Trish Stratus capturing the title as a relative rookie and beginning what is now fondly known as the “Golden Era.”  I don’t think that the Golden Era needs a recap as was done with the current title and its lineage, but looking at the numbers helps to contextualize the treatment of the Raw Women’s Championship against the Golden Era’s Women’s Title. If we put theoretical constraints on the Golden Era as beginning with Trish Stratus’s first title win in 2001 and ending with Mickie James’s iconic Wrestlemania 22 victory against the same woman, the period lasted for about 4 and a half years—about double the current span of the Raw Women’s Championship. Over that time, the belt changed hands 15 times total between 7 different women. Ultimately, the Golden Era is remembered as a time when the women thrived due to (mostly) incredibly talented competitors that were billed as near-equivalents; there was never a sure sense of who was better than who or who would be coming out of title matches on top. This is telling when we look at the statistics: even less-acclaimed, more-forgotten stars like Victoria, Molly Holly, and Jazz had two title reigns a piece, and Molly in particular held the belt for 210 days during a single reign. Comparatively, Charlotte Flair’s 4 reigns are recognized as a combine 246 days, while Sasha’s 4 only represent 84 days. Molly Holly spent 301 combined days as Women’s Champion, Victoria 244, and Jazz 162. This is not to say that the title is without its own controversies, with Stratus’s notable 448 day reign—the longest championship reign of any kind of the 2000s decade—due to injury and, aside from Victoria, lack of credible competitors to hold the belt in interim. With all this in mind, how can we understand the booking of the Raw women’s division as it currently stands? Has the Raw Women's Championship been booked in a way that attempts to instantly add credibility and make up for the mistakes and poor booking of the Diva’s Title era? Or, does such a large amount of title changes lessen the value of becoming Raw Women’s Champion, especially considering that it seems to be reserved for a select few? Other points to consider: Will the transitional champions (Bayley, Nia Jax) be remembered as we remember the Golden Era’s (Jazz, Gail Kim), or are they irredeemable thanks to the clear favoritism of the booking? Was Trish Stratus ever granted the same kind of privilege that Alexa Bliss and Charlotte Flair enjoyed as members of the Raw brand considering her record-setting 7 championship reigns? Does the division flourish or stagnate with only a limited number of possible challengers? While the Golden Era had numerous challengers to the title, the women’s roster was much thinner. Does the density of women currently employed reflect something about the booking of the championship? What will Sasha Banks’s legacy be? It may be important to consider that Lita only holds one reign during my imagined time period for the Golden Era, yet is arguably the most or the second most important figure of the era. Which is better: more title reigns or longer title reigns? Or, does the number of reigns a woman obtains in this new era even matter?
