    So this Bayley and Charlotte feud has no chance of ending soon…. I don’t understand.

    • MyleneCruz

      Gwarl me either!! Like Charlotte is a great heel and Bayley is…bayley but I’m over them. The story line is stale as fuck. Like is this fucking NXT? they could of kept it over there if we were just gonna forget the other girls. Like I get they wanna make history but by the time all these bitchez make history the other girls careers will be over and a set of new bitchez will be in. WWE so stupid like why they have to be the only ones who make history? Fuck these horse bitcez! Yeah I said it and if you don’t like it as you’re reading this oh damn well. I’m so over WWE and the shenanigans!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/08d3420cec1513ec0bfd28d996334c4747318c8b6b660f314ab9d44a197f2620.gif

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I totally agree. It’s like everyone on Raw who was in NXT has to repeat the same stuff. It’s more women in the division that deserve to have been the first women in hell in a Cell. Why is Alicia Fox not included in this history making? Nia and Dana are ultra green and with them not doing much or getting silly storylines for isn’t going to improve them. I really need Raw to get it together.

        • conan_kun

          And they keep denying Emma to return when she’s cleared for more than 4 months already, they should have let Emma on Smackdown if Raw not using her. I rather want Emma to be evil La Luchadora siding with Alexa, remember she was feuding with Becky before her injury plus Mickie has no reason to attack Becky.

          • Joseph

            Emma has nobody to feud with on RAW since shes a heel, Dana and Nia are heels. Sasha is feuding with Nia, Paige is MIA. Charlotte and Bayley are feuding. Alicia Fooooooooox is avoiding Noam Dar.

          • conan_kun

            They should have let Emma reunite with Dana and go after Charlotte’s title too, make it three way feud with Charlotte vs Bayley vs Emma, at least fresher than simply Charlotte vs Bayley.

          • Joseph

            Then you are mostly likely re-doing the NXT storyline from 2015. Charlotte/Bayley vs. Emma/Dana

          • conan_kun

            I’m not saying Charlotte turns babyface, just keep her as heel

          • Joseph

            Shes gonna be a baby or a tweener in this since Emma on twitter guessing in character doesn’t like the 4HW are getting all the attention.

          • Geek God

            We should do more heel vs heel and face vs face feuds anyway

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            It’ll also serve as a nice return for Mickie as she can side with Becky Lynch. And we can get either a tag team or fatal four feud.

        • MyleneCruz

          Yassss!!!!! Alicia should be the center of it all!!!! She has barely reached the full potential we all know she’s more than capable of. Alicia can run laps around some of these girls yet she’s still a filler for bitchez who got a golden ticket their first day in. And I love all that the 4HW have done but it’s like okay they made women’s wrestling relevant again now let’s show off what the ENTIRE DIVISION is capable of! Show the audience what they’ve been missing for years because they looked at the girls as nothing more than eye candy.

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            All I need is for her to get one ppv match with any of the 4HW and show to us all that she can give us a 5 star block buster match.

          • MyleneCruz

            Seriously though! That’s all it would take!!! She and Charlotte had great chemistry when it was team pcb vs team bella! That chemistry could be elevated to an entirely new level if given the chance but they constantly rather play it safe SMH

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        Lol yessss

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      What I don’t understand is why you or anyone think it would be good to end it now. You claim you want Raw to get better. Well, we have two women’s feuds but it’s to WWE to make them great. You want them to drop it so what, we can complain about WWE dropping things just like that and Raw’s product? We shouldn’t drop the feud, if the plan is to put the title on Bayley, it shouldn’t stop now as well, now it’s to WWE to make it work as a whole.
      You want things to get better but you burry anything new WWE gives you without giving it a chance.
      THAT is something I don’t understand.

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I’m not saying drop the feud out of nowhere but the feud is repetitive. We’ve seen it before. Now they want it to mirror a feud we’ve already seen on top of that. It’s boring. Now if they included more women in to it or maybe use this feud to lead in to something else than yes I’m all for it. But this feud is stale. You can’t give us better but half doing it. We said women’s revolution not four horsewomen and company hour.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Yes we’ve seen it but I mean, look at the Raw roster. The sole non-NXT girl from Raw is actually Alicia Fox (and even her has worked on NXT a little). Bayley and Nia have worked together, Bayley and Charlotte, Bayley and Sasha, Sasha and Charlotte, Dana and Bayley, etc. so at the end of the day, if that’s your big problem, well it’s not gonna change anytime soon. Paige and Summer are still out, Lana is not capable enough to be involved with the women in the ring, Fox is having her storyline in the cruiserweight scene and Emma is coming but WWE is still figuring out how to make her come back successfully. So now, WWE is working with Charlotte, Sasha, Bayley, Dana and Nia mainly which include two performers called up too soon. Not to mention, as long as Charlotte is champion, it’s hard for the division to really evolve.

          Now, I agree that Raw’s writers are shit even tho a lot of people on here fault the girls or more so Bayley when clearly, it’s more on WWE, however, it’s not over and, they just need to give them great material to work with to make it worth it.

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            My problem is the writers. The women still deliver even with bogus writing.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Then that’s fine here.

  • GailKimStan

    Raw was already cancelled for me, now it’s super cancelled

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Imma make sure I’m scheduled to work on mondays evenings for now on. Smackdown has my heart only.

      • MyleneCruz

        Word. SD has me interested in the men and women!! I can’t remember the last time I’ve watched an entire episode of Raw or SD but lately I’ve been watching all of SD w/ no problem.

        • YonceLuvsDivas

          Right like I’m super invested in the Dean and Mix story and the AJ Styles and Cena feud.

          • MyleneCruz

            Yasss!!! And ziggler turning heel than attacking apollo did it for me as well!!!

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            Oh yes that too

      • conan_kun

        Exactly, Smackdown managed to use all woman (Eva is off filming, Naomi may be injured) and got 4 storylines featuring Becky/Alexa, Nikki/Natalya, Carmellsworth and Renee/Maryse, while Raw is only focus on star power and living on NXT story and Horsewomen.

    The last thing I wanna see is these bitches at wrestlemania and the other girls pre-showing again!! I am so DONE!!!!!1 Sha-bye with the BS WWE!!!! I didn’t realize give divas a chance meant only give four of them a chance!!!!! I

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      Because you have seen the WM card already?

      • MyleneCruz

        Please don’t be ray charles to the shit! We all know what it is!

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          So far, we know that Charlotte vs Bayley will be a match. Fair enough. What else? Who else? Who’s gonna be on the main card? Is there gonna be 1 or multiple matches on the main card involving women? Because you seem to know… Oh wait…
          Stop being overdramatic really…

          • MyleneCruz

            Fuck you and them horses you rode in on. Anything for those hookers right? Sit your stanning ass down somewhere. Your faves are overrated and overused DEAL with it. Conversation over.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Wow, so sensitive… I mean I knew they haters but to this point, pretty ridiculous but oh well…

          • KatyaMenelli

            It’s not hating. We’re just so fucking sick of seeing WWE only spotlight the same 4 girls when they’re claiming that a women’s revolution is happening…bitch, where? All I see is NXT 2015 on RAW but with less time and repetitive shit. What the fuck is Alicia doing? It’s not the 4HW’s fault, but I’m so over it. If they want us to give them their props, then USE ALL THEIR GODDAMN WOMEN….Smackdown literally does it with no problem at all and they have an hour less. That’s really sad and pathetic when you think about it.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            “USE ALL THEIR GODDAMN WOMEN” but they are… just not the way some would like it to and not with the best booking but every active girl is doing something which is what has been asked for a long time.

          • MyleneCruz

            They haters? Talk to me when you’ve properly graduated grammar school darling. BYE!

  • MyleneCruz
  • conan_kun

    So they gonna do Charlotte vs Bayley for Royal Rumble, Fastlane and Wrestlemania as they think this is money feud. What about Sasha, when she is in the promotion with those top stars instead of Bayley and Charlotte, unless they just use Sasha as a promotional tool but not give her a spot for Mania card

  • berlinettaclub

    Pretty much knew that Charlotte/Bayley would go all the way to Mania. They think Char’s PPV streak is a big deal when most people don’t care. Hopefully their PPV matches will be better than the boring messes they’ve given us on Raw

    “The history of the women’s championship” its not even a year old and we’ve only had two champs… nothing about this is historic. Im not looking forward to Charlotte vs Bayley cause we know where this feud and the next feud is gonna go. I dont feel like seeing DB 2.0 with bayley instead when DB was legit an underdog while bayley isnt

    Theres tension between Shane/Steph/HHH cause SDL is doing better than Raw in all aspects and Raw is severely suffering. Both brands have tons of talent but equally dont know what to do with them.

  • Jo9834

    Bayley VS Charlotte is a feud no one really wants to see, infact , thanks to Raw’s booking there isn’t one potential rivalry on the roster anyone would be interested in period.

    Charlotte – No one will EVER come out on top of a feud with her, so there really is no point, fans are so used to her winning even the occasional loss means nothing anymore.

    Sasha – So much potential to be a mega star, but has been booked into a hole as the girl that just can never get it done. We just watch her for her outstanding matches, everything else in between is BORING.

    Bayley – Mega face heat coming into the brand, has been completely washed out in pointless matches and squashes, the fans WANTED to care, but like Sami Zayn, she was booked into oblivion. We all know her and Charlotte have ZERO fire in the ring and put on boring matches together.

    Nia Jax – Big , strong and intimidating for absolutely no reason at all. Lost all monster credibility has eating losses to Asuka, Bayley, Becky. Now she’s just the big girl on Raw.

    Alicia – Do not even get me started. She’s been so misused her whole career im not even interested in seeing her wrestle anymore its a joke.

    Dana Brooke – Vince obviously loves her, but she really cannot keep up in the ring. I love her character but do not want to see her anywhere near a title anytime soon.

    Emmalina – Permanently parked on Twitter feuding via her keyboard. We know she won’t be booked properly on return due to the fact her gimmick is ridiculous to begin with. She is no Sable or Torrie Wilson.

    Summer and Paige – MIA. and thankfully nowhere near the Raw writing team.

  • Alex

    Bit Off-Topic,

    With the fact that the WWE already has 3 single Women’s titles I hope the focus and prize for the upcoming women’s tournament will be tag team wrestling and new tag belts. I also hope the tournament will lead to the formation of a new women’s tag team division, which will consists of most or all of the tag team tournament participants, pairings from both the main and developmental rosters, and possibly even unsigned non-tournament participating duos. Once the tournament concludes the new division could be regularly highlighted on one or more of the current brand shows, and/or a new WWE network program that will also feature matches and storylines from the women’s main and developmental single divisions.

    When you know Bayley and Charlotte can but on amazing matches, but at the same time know their feud will be boring AF…

  • Can’t wait to see Nikki as champ again but they can keep Bayley’s push. It’s not organic and I’m tired of Charlotte. Literally keep it.

    • Delroy Coke

      Nikki Bella will win at Wrestlemania and the comeback complete her Fearless comeback story. As for Bayley she will be champion soon

  • Jouey

    I read somewhere in the comments, that Eva is still filming, no she is not since November and I want to know when she will come back becouse she is out for like 5 months. I want her on my TV!!!! Cant wait!!!
