Agreed. It would have been super easy to book. Asuka steamrolled everyone else on Smackdown and starts calling out Charlotte to avenge last year's loss, but Charlotte thinks Asuka is beneath her and doesn't want to have the match. So Asuka is forced to brutally attack her to get her mad enough to accept the title match.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

drunkenly bought floor seats to RAW tonight during a SB Party last month (long story). Havent been to or really watched much WWE since I was a kid (just before and leading up to the Attitude Era.) Anything that I must know prior to going in? Actually, if someone could just catch me up on the last 20 years of pro wrestling that would work too....

Well Vince took everything that made WWE great from 98-03 and decided to do the opposite. It's pretty much impossible to make sense of anything they try to do, but they randomly stumble into some pretty sweet characters/storylines (Becky v Ronda bein the current one, despite their best efforts).

They also now do mid-match commercials, so if you were wondering why they introduced Alexa Bliss and then she just sat there for a few minutes...that's why.

Great choice to go. You've already seen something extremely rare: A No Way Jose wrestling match.

Alexa hosting, Elias the musical entertainment at Mania...because you need to be at least 40 to have a match on the show.

So is Alexa Bliss just dead or something?

I'd be surprised if Corbin ended up actually being Angle's opponent by the time they get to Mania. Still think it's going to be...

The Cole/Batista interview is one of the worst things I've ever seen. At least Cole calling him Dave the whole time was hilarious

I ended up sleeping through RAW which, judging by the thread not mentioning anything that happened, is a good thing. But I did just see this:

I think she doesn't really have a place in the current main event picture and this is a better use of her talents than being involved in random midcard/tag team matches given she's not a great wrestler. I don't think she's actually injured or anything.

Really liked how they did Ronda/Dana the last two weeks. Adding Ronda's husband for heat also made me laugh. The guy is an IRL heel and it's smart to use it.

My first thought seeing that picture: damn Dave sure looks a lot like Bubba Ray.

The gauntlet match should be pretty exciting and fun. Seems like an episode to go to if there ever was one.

I'd go to most smackdowns, never a raw.
