    The article on Bayley is completely spot on. I actually liked the segment because it was executed well by the women, but in context of Bayley’s character it was just as odd as that time she joined in the jumping of Nikki Bella during RAW’s invasion of Smackdown around the Survivor Series build up.

      Agree 10000%. Bayley should have hesitated. She shouldn’t have attacked until she was attacked. It was a mess.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      Well I see what he said, I think she hesitated long and showed remorse for that not to be that bad. She indeed talked about the issue and said that it was important for her to be a role model before saying “HELL NO”.

      I don’t think anything is gonna be worse than Bayley during Raw’s invasion really and here, I don’t really think it is even comparable. While her innocence is something she has to preserve, she shouldn’t be this dumb and I feel like her relinquishing the title in this case would have been bad in the sense that it would have made her look dumb and that’s the last thing she needs.

      I think she needs to stick up for herself when it’s needed and that’s a role model in itself while still being innocent. Now of course, things could have been booked better overall but still.

      I don’t blame Bayley i blame the crappy writing.

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      Totally agree. Raw ruined Sasha and it’s looking like Bayley is their next 4HW to destroy to leave Charlotte as the difinitive so called “best”

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    I like the idea of another Draft tbh.

  • alexl467

    As I stated before I hope the focus of both the tournament and post-tournament will be tag team wrestling and the formation of an ongoing women’s tag division, which will consists of tournament teams, main & developmental roster pairings, duos of returning Divas, and possibly unsigned & non-tournament participating teams.

    Asuka wrestling main roster live events ??????

  • Glitter Bliss Banks

    Is none gonna talk about Thea Trinidad and Tessa Blanchard filming scenes for the Paige movie after Raw and Smackdown went off air, Thea looking amazing as AJ and did incredible on the mic! it’s official news now that they are re-creating the night Paige beat AJ and recreating the AJ VS Paige feud. After looking at some videos online, Thea was just thenominal, The only thing I find abit confusing is that they gave Thea AJ’S Titan-tron, Graphics,Theme, character etc. but she came out in different a different gear to AJ? I’m very excited!

    The Cageside Seats article is a very good read. It helped me put words on what I myself felt during the particular segment and why I felt weird watching it. It’s nice to have these sorts of on-depth analysis of a character/segment, where attention is paid to details. Most articles on CSS actually are pretty smart by the way.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    I hope this doesn’t mean asuka is coming to smackdown because I really don’t want her there to bury the division. Let her go to raw where they only like to push 2 women at a time.

  • conan_kun

    Why do Bayley need to relinquish the title, she should have said that Sasha was only there to even things out after Dana had cheated. She came across very poorly here. When Steph demanded her to relinquish the title, she should have rebuffed and said that why Steph never asked Charlotte to relinquish the title after winning all those times with the help of first her father, and then Dana.

    Yay for Asuka!
