Then she lost clean as a whistle to asuka by tapping out and I remembered that it really sucks being right about wwe sucking
Becky is legit locked to be in a Ronda match at Mania or she wouldn't be talking about it in interviews and on SD. Not sure how they'll get there but it's happening. I don't think this cools off Becky much, if at all, and it's a huge boost for Asuka in a division that needs more top stars.

If anything, I think Becky almost needed to be cooled down -- she is getting a massive push, but a lot of her appeal is as the fan favorite that the company allegedly doesn't want, which is helped by this outcome.

Shane is so bad. Just stick to doing big spots.

I agree with everyone that says it's a huge boost for Asuka, but also those who feel it might cool off Becky. Don't think Vince cares about how that makes a Becky/Rhonda match look because they can still get enough heat for it. Also still thinking Charlotte is in that match too.

I guess I'm seeing the era post-invincible Asuka here, but those kicks just look so insanely brutal they need to be sold more.



Meh whatever way you look at it though it's a massive step in the right direction from the time when random models were champs
Yeah, that's a fair counterpoint to my comment. I agree.

We're getting a triple threat with Becky/Charlotte/Ronda. They've been building it for so long. Anything else would be a pretty big disappointment.

Seeing Sheamus sell punches (or anything) for Shane is sad to watch.

You guys are ridiculous, you have to remember there is a women's Royal Rumble to come. 30 women enter! Anything could happen?

I reckon Nia Jax is gonna book her ticket to the main event of Royal Rumble personally, her size is just gonna be such a massive advantage with that low centre of gravity, I don't know how anyone is gonna get her over the top rope.

Shane really sold that move, coming right out of it into the triangle.

The overly choreographed spots seem to have gotten even worse since I stopped watching. SKF -> both guys just slowly rolling out of the ring is awful

The bar don't need the belt so I don't really care that they lost just hope this leads to Shane getting decimated by the miz at some point.

Pretty meh match.

Nah that was just a particularly bad moment. Dives out of the ring are the main spot where it's painfully fake as they need to soften the fall of the person diving.

I was definitely thinking, "WTF Shane, why are you crossing yourself? You're just jumping off the top rope to the mat." Gotta give it to him, it was a solid SSP.

That replay of Sheamus eating the Skull Crushing Finale and then just slowly, slowly rolling out of the ring so Shane can do his spot.... wow lol

Love seeing Shane win though anyway

If we can get The Bludgeon Bros. to face these guys and obliterate them, I'd be happy.

I'll take your word on it that's not a major issue, but there was an awful spot in the Buddy Murphy match too in his out of the ring dive
