So last week, we got the news that the RAW Women’s Championship would be defended in a triple threat match at WrestleMania where Champion Bayley would take on enemy Charlotte Flair and best friend Sasha Banks. However, we know that the road to WrestleMania isn’t always a straight one, so let’s see how things developed on this week’s RAW Redux!

Before RAW, WWE.com exclusive posted a video of Charlotte talking with her protege, Dana Brooke. Dana is apologetic for last week’s failed interference, which allowed Sasha to enter the Championship match at WrestleMania. She tries to plead for forgiveness as she describes her recent chores for Charlotte, including getting her a copy of ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Charlotte interrupts her and just warns Dana that she needs to find a way to stop Sasha from being able to compete at WrestleMania.

Fast forward to RAW and Sasha Banks has made to the ring accompanied by the Champion Bayley. Waiting inside is a focused Dana, with her mentor Charlotte overlooking the action. In a match the barely lasts 90 seconds, Sasha rolls up Dana for the easy victory! The BFFs celebrate as they head to the back, but Charlotte grabs the microphone and gets in the ring.

“You’re a DISGRACE!”, Charlotte shouts in disgust at her protege. After more verbal berating, she tells Dana that she’s getting rid of her! However, before the mentor can finish her rant, the protege decks her right in the jaw! Pummeling her into the turnbuckle, hitting a huge clothesline – this isn’t a catfight! Charlotte catches ALL of Dana’s hands and looks shaken up as the crowd chants for Dana!

RAW Fallout catches Dana backstage and she is pumped! She warns that she’s not finished with her (now former) mentor yet!

Backstage, the real ‘bosses’ of RAW Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon are interrupted by Nia Jax. She questions how Sasha Banks could get added to the WrestleMania title match, when Jax put her out for a month! So, Stephanie muscles in with her power and allows Nia a ‘spotlight’ – she gets to take on RAW Women’s Champion, Bayley, to prove why she should be involved in the title picture!

Backstage, the besties Bayley and Sasha try to psyche up before the match. Sasha tells Bayley not to worry about the haters, tonight she just needs to take out Nia and then she can focus on WrestleMania!

Fast forward to the aforementioned match! Bayley is out first, followed by Nia who means business. I mean, it’s not like we’ve not seen these two face each other a million times before right?

As per usual, it’s your typical Nia match – yes that’s right: a load of screaming, no-selling into a running shoulder block here and there, topped off with some hairmares. Oh, I mean she threw over the steel steps… that was different… Bayley gets some offence in during the match, but it’s always very shortlived. Nia pummels Bayley into the corner and stomps her out over the referee’s 5 count which causes a DQ finish!

She hangs Bayley in the Tree of Woe and gears herself to run into her, but gets stopped by the referee. Instead, she drags Bayley out of the ring and tosses the Champion into the ring barricade leaving the Champ fallen.

Finally, we get another new promo featuring Emma who will be debuting a gimmick she already had. This time the voiceover mentions how she learnt that ‘nice girls finish last’, but hey… can you hurry up and just get to RAW properly please?

Thoughts: Oh RAW… let me just get the big ‘bleh’ out of the way first. Last week, I was pretty happy with the decision to not include Nia in the title picture, but I guess this week is proof that the rumours are true. I’m sure you can all see it within my reviews, each week they seem to be more and more negative towards her as she has been so lacklustre lately. Putting her on the big stage with the company’s top three women is only going to expose her more. Even if Charlotte was able to give us a Hogan/Andre moment and scoop slam Nia, I really don’t think I’d care at this point. NIA LEARN SOME NEW FRIGGING MOVES. GET SOME INTENSITY, PLEASE!

Anyway, onto the star of the night and it’s someone that I’m usually quite critical over, but Dana Brooke did a really good job! I mean, sure I didn’t really expect this to happen now and Lord knows what they have planned for her since she’s nowhere near the title picture, but I’m so thankful for seeing something fresh!

I think we all expected this moment to happen months ago and probably expected this angle to include more fumbling and a great build, but either way it’s such a refresher. The crowd getting behind Dana, seeing her do something new, having Charlotte gain a new dimension to her character – it’s all good progression… but as mentioned, where this will progress to is the question.

Overall, ‘sloppy’ is probably the keyword that I can use to the RAW booking lately. It’s there, but it’s so not there. SmackDown continue to steal the crown every single week with their logical and continuous booking, but RAW just seem to be a bit of a fail overall. Emmalina anyone?

Are you happy to see Nia back involved in the picture? Was Dana’s uprising too premature? Is Sasha making that heel turn? Drop a message in the comments below!

  • Rose

    can we just skip to the part where Paige Emma or Summer returns. RAW is repetitive.

    • saul de la efe

      PLEASE

    • Joseph

      Paige and Summer are still out with injuries.

      • Cathy Kelley.

        Did you read what she said?

  • LaurenYorkStan

    Dana Queen I stan

  • The only thing that happened that was worth ANYTHING was Dana dragging Charlotte. Now if only she learned how to wrestle, RAW would be in business.

    • Charlie Flickinger

      Agreed, however working with Charlotte will only help her.

    • Diva_Fan

      Dana probably looked the best a she’s ever looked in the ring this week tbh !

  • LaurenYorkStan
    • Luna Lovegood

      Is this Lana?.

      • LaurenYorkStan

        Her sister

  • Charlie Flickinger

    The crowd popped hard for Dana when she laid WASTE to the Queen. That clothesline out of the corner looked AMAZING. I feel like this should have happened the nights AFTER WM, but it throws a huge ‘what if’ going into WM.

  • If they add both Nia and Dana to the match, but NOT Alicia that would be a whole damn mess. She’s a better competitor than both of them combined. I would’ve personally liked Naomi/Becky/Alexa/Mickie and Charlotte/Sasha/Bayley/Nia fatal four ways at Mania, and then a little battle royal with the remaining girls from both brands on the preshow. Adding every single girl on the roster in the match leads to a clusterfuck.

    • LaurenYorkStan

      *all of them

  • Sass.

    Dana really impressed me. She showed more fire, passion & personality in that 60 second beat down than she has in her entire run on the main roster thus far.

    It just goes to show how great of a heel Charlotte is. Even with the inconsistent booking, the crowd were chanting Dana’s name. They wanted to see Charlotte get her face beat in!

    This is your chance now, girl! Prove the haters wrong, Dana!

    • limfox

      Right! Charlotte really just keeps solidifying her legacy week after week. The fact that she was able to get a jobber like Dana over so immensely is crazy. Charlotte is the true MVP of the women’s division tbh

  • Yesss Dana, this can be a great feud if they book it right. Charlotte is over, they’ve been building this breakup forever and now they can spice it up after WM. Do not disappoint us please.

    • Allyn

      Exactly It’s all going to come down to the booking, raw NEEDS this to work

  • Luna Lovegood

    I’m not a fan of Dana but I think she has potential to be a good Babyface.

    I hope WWE doesn’t pull a swerve and put Dana back with Charlotte.

    Nia Jax NEEDS to stay away from the title.

    When is Emma going to return?.

  • No idea why Nia had to prove herself again since she beat Bayley 3x already, twice while she was the #1 contender, and once as champion. That was a mess but I guess she’s being added so that’s the saving grace. I also hope she wins at WM.

    • Luna Lovegood

      Why do you want Nia to be added?. Is it because of the 4 horsewomen?.

      • And why not? We’ve seen the triple threat at Clash of Champions already and it wasn’t that good and Nia should make it interesting at least.

        • Luna Lovegood

          I rather have Dana be added instead of Nia.

          • She only just got momentum so it wouldn’t look right but I wouldn’t mind it either. Just something other than the triple threat.

          • Luna Lovegood

            OK fair enough.

    • Luna Lovegood

      Well 3.

  • Wicked Bliss

    This proves that Charlotte is such a great heel that she made Dana over. I wonder if they will let her join the match in mania.

    • Kira_cx

      She might not join the match but help either Sasha or Bayley win

    • howie_ruhl

      Exactly. People shit on her because of things that are not in her control (such as being given all of these dumb ass reigns) but whatever the girl does control, she makes proper use of. This is why she’s my fave out of the Four Horsewomen. She just has all the bases covered.

  • Once Enema returns what is she going to do since Dana will be a face?

    • Luna Lovegood

      Didn’t you say that WWE RAW Women’s was getting stale?.

      • And? Where am I denying that?

  • Winter

    Since Bayley is the champion I lost all my interest in this division. The booking in the Charlotte/Sasha feud are really bad too, but this two girls kept me interested with their great matches and the intensity in their promos. Bayley is a mess.

  • LaurenYorkStan
  • #Hooligan ?

    Do you guys realise that Sasha, Charlotte and Bayley are the only women who have been in championship matches since the draft? Not a fan of Nia but hopefully the end of her match with Bayley means she will be added to the match at Wrestlemania. Those 3 horsewomen are talented as hell but I’m not here for them getting every title shots month after month after month.

    • Montel Porter

      But to be fair on the Smackdown side ever since the backlash match only 3 women on Smackdown been getting title shots(Becky,Alexa and Naomi) Natalya,Carmella and Surprisingly Nikki Bella haven’t been in title matches since.And even when Naomi gave the title back they went right back with Becky and Alexa and didn’t even bother to have Mickie in the match.

      • saul de la efe

        but they have all been showcased properly, i don´t mind it in here cuz SD cas a fare play to all woman… raw is nothing but sasha champion, charlote wins back, charlotte loses it, sasha regains, charlotte back, bayley, charlotte, nia, bayley, charlotte, sasha, bayley hgfdsdfg

        meanwhile emma, dana, alicia, summer are doing nothing… at least fox was/is involved in the cruiserweight division but it will take her nowhere

        • Montel Porter

          But aren’t we all the same people that criticize Danas and Nias in ring work? They both green as hell and doesn’t deserve to go over Sasha,Charlotte and Bayley.I agree on Alicia fox and Emma being misused.

          I get it people are sick of the horsewomen takeover but when it comes to match quality they can bring it.After all that hard work Sasha and Charlotte have done all last year there’s no way in hell there gonna miss a mania opportunity to recreate a new classic with Bayley added.

          • The girls won’t improve sitting backstage or in squash matches. If Alexa can be pushed at the top and if Carmella had a stipulation match and what not, Nia and Dana can too.

            They can’t rely on Horsewomen forever. They’ll have to move one day and when they need to they won’t have anyone to replace them. New stars are built with new feuds, and they barely do that. Even during Nia and Sasha “feud”, Sasha was interacting with Bayley and Charlotte more while Nia was off TV. That’s doing Nia no wonders and she still can’t get a reaction after 7 months.

          • Montel Porter

            No raw is smart for not putting Dana and Nia in matches with weapons and giving them title runs because their GREEN and WE all agreed on that so the booking they been getting (Dana being charlottes side kick and Nia squashing jobbers and having side feuds with Alicia and Sasha) was fine for them.

            Nia can’t get a reaction because she’s not a believable monster heel something once again WE all agreed on.Just because Smackdown done it doesn’t mean raw has to.

          • Joseph

            Dana was rush remember she was out for 7 months after her match with Asuka in October 2015 then they brought her to the Main Roster when she was clearly not ready for it.

          • Montel Porter

            I agree which is why I said she was fine in the position she was in being a sidekick for awhile even if meant she was gonna take the L in most matches(Even though she did beat Paige and Becky Last year). I rather have her do that then be pushed as a top diva wining belts so early in her career.

          • Who is we? They’re not smart because they haven’t built them up AT ALL. It’s been seven months and they haven’t done a thing, meanwhile Alexa and Carmella went places since then.
            If you’re green you COMPETE and let others help you grows as well. Not by sitting backstage. That’s how Trish and Charlotte got better.

            Nia is not used to get any reaction at all. Why would they react to Someone Who appears once a month?

          • Montel Porter

            Nia jax has won all her side feuds and lost only two matches so far she’s been booked alright for someone who’s as green as she is.

            And Nia and Dana do compete most of the time.If it’s not on tv then it’s definitely at the live event shows.Why push a girl that’s green let her be in side feuds for awhile and when she’s ready then you put her in the main feud and perhaps wins the title.

          • Won what? Sasha sure beat her at Fastlane and victories have led her nowhere. she’s not doing anything.

            They don’t even get side feuds. If they do, they end after two weeks and they’re back to catering. If there’s no continuity it’s pointless.

          • Montel Porter

            Did Nia Jax not win at the royal rumble? Did she not pin bayley when bayley champion? Did she not beat Alicia fox at night of champions?

            Come on now Nia isn’t even the worst booked girl on the show.So she lost to Sasha at fast lane big deal she still looked dominant against bayley on raw.

          • She won at RR but she was off TV but Sasha was still was in program with Bayley and Charlotte, while Nia did nothing. She’s there one week then she’s not there at all. Her wins mean nothing as she hasn’t had a title shot yet. Despite all the wins you still saw them booking her to prove herself.. even though she doesn’t need to. Theyre not consistent with her at all.

          • D. #ILoveMelina

            I’m gonna have to agree with everyone when I say RAW could have made something happen. Nattie, who hasn’t been interesting in years is actually feeling like a contender on Smackdown. RAW could have done the same with Alicia Fox she’s the type of jobber that usually puts up a fight. Remember, she lasted a little longer than Sasha Banks when she faced Nia and some people were actually here for it. They could have built her to at least a filler feud with Charlotte but RAW always plays it safe where as Smackdown used all these green women and marketed them. Then when they could have mixed it up by using Emma when she was cleared they wanted to keep doing dumb promos just to switch her back to who she was before she left. She def could have returned as face and been credible against Charlotte.

          • Exactlyy. Those women haven’t moved a step forward since the draft, evryone is in the same or worse position. They’ve had so many chances to spice things up but they never capitalized on it.

          • limfox

            I’m sorry but Nia has been booked HORRIBLY. Nothing but inconsistent matches since her debut. One weeks she’s facing a random jobber half her size and who we all know she’s going to defeat with ease. And then the next week she’s off TV. Then the next week she’s randomly entered into the main women’s feud. No one takes that woman serious because (1) she doesn’t come off as a serious threat and (2) she’s booked as a joke, despite her winning a lot of her matches.

            The main roster has not done her any good

          • Organization XIII

            With constant time on TV they’d be fine. Look at Charlotte. She improved immensely & there were definitely much better women overall than her.

      • wwepassion

        But unlike raw the entire SD women are credible and all serious threats. SD women can work side feuds and get the crowd on their feet, can’t say the same for raw.

        • Montel Porter

          Oh so Carmella is a serious threat? yeah because her losing to Nikki Bella every time they face off and beating local talent makes her such a threat.Oh and Natalya is somehow a threat now? She finally wins 1 MATCH on Smackdown since the draft and now she’s this dominant diva?.And the raw women can’t get the crowd on their feet have you forget the multiple Sasha and Charlotte matches and even Bayley winning the title on Raw.

          • wwepassion

            Carmella made a name for her self after the Nikki feud, you don’t need to win the feud to add credibility. If you actually watched she beat Nikkis ass every week. You thought a rookie who had zero credibility before Nikki was going to beat her? LOL. She ddn’t win but she sure showed her talent on the mic and shown how charismatic she is which many people lack. Nattie has always been credible no matter how shitty she was booked, she was and always will be a credible woman and that’s a fact. What are raw women doing? Nothing but watching 3 women do the same boring ass shit since NXT. You can’t compare the womens roster with SD because it’s just plain comedy and sad at the same time. Raw women has not had great matches since the Sasha and Charlotte feud and they have been getting dead reaction for such ‘Star power” that they have over SD. Whether you like it or not SD has been wining since day one and Raw knows it which is why they get asked and told in interviews how they feel about fans liking SD more than raw…OOPS!

          • Montel Porter

            Oh so were going with the “You don’t need to have a ton of wins to be credible” excuse to be a credible opponent for a champion? Oh ok so I see no problem with Nia Jax and Dana getting tile runs now since that’s how you think this works.Carmella got her ass whooped last week by Cena and Nikki but who cares let’s give her a mania match because she’s full of charisma and just so fabulous!

            WWE is about to sign Io Shirai but people care more about Kelly coming back! But go ahead and continue to support mediocre booking,Matches and Talent and by the way I never said Raw was better than Smackdown so don’t start that BS argument.

          • wwepassion

            No on raw outside of the 3 is booked like SD women so no it won’t work for them, pay attention. No one agrees with you and you are like the only person who speaks highly of the trash raw gives us…..yikes. SD is team work raw is not

          • Montel Porter

            Like I care if anyone agrees with me.Im not gonna sit here and waste my time talking to You.

          • wwepassion

          • Strategize LP

            “Raw women have not had great matches since the Sasha and Charlotte feud”

            Well that’s a straight lie considering Charlotte and Bayley just had the highest rated main roster women’s match ever just last month in the main event of RAW.

          • wwepassion

            How is it a lie? I’m allowed to have my opinions and unlike you I don’t make my opinions based off what the internet tells you…Highest rated lol

          • Strategize LP

            I thought the match was sublime the second I saw it, probably the most heat for a women’s match since Sasha vs Bayley in NXT.

            The fact that I saw most have a similar opinion after the fact was only the cherry on top.

          • wwepassion

            HUH?

          • Strategize LP

            There a problem?

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        To be fair though Smackdown title was only active half the year at most. Come wrestlemania raws title will be a full year old.

        • Montel Porter

          But what could Raw do at that time? Half the women they had drafted to Raw was injured(Paige,Emma and Summer) then you had jobber girls(Alicia and Dana) the only option at that time was Sasha then she got injured and the belt had to go back to Charlotte then Sasha won again and for some reason charlotte had to win again.Then Bayley came along and they wasn’t gonna put the belt on Nia because she’s green at the moment so bayley was the only option.

          Do I agree on most of the stuff Raw does with their women no? But I can understand some of the stuff they do.I don’t think EVERYTHING raw does is bad.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            I didn’t say that everything raw has done has been bad, not at all. Raw has put on some AMAZING and historic women’s matches the problem is the only reason for it was to capitalize on their NXT fame and for the sake of making history. The back and forth with the title didn’t help. Instead of making Alicia an automatic jobber she should have been the veteran that Charlotte over came first instead of going straight for Sasha and Charlotte. I get the unfortunate timing of all the injuries had a lot to do with the problem but raw had other options they just didn’t utilize them. Heck even going with a surprise and going with Dana would have been something. I know she is very green and not very fluid in the ring but look what smackdown did with Alexa bliss by giving her the title early in her main roster career. Not that Dana should have beaten Charlotte but a well done fued could have really helped her alot sooner. Look at Carmella and Nikki, mella didn’t need to win to make an impact.

      • #Hooligan ?

        All of the SD women have at least one championship match, can you say the same about the Raw women? No.

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      I have to agree with you but this is still better than SmackDown. RAW is booking a WM match, and the championship feels important. Sasha had to earn the right to be in that match, Charlotte as the heel she is got a VIP ticket and Nia is destroying the hell out of Bayley because as of right now she’s not on that match. So everyone is working towards that WM match, that WM moment.
      SD feels like a throwaway match, everyone got an opportunity for the belt, there’s no story behind it, everything feels random like Carmella showing that she’s a “threat” by kicking Natalya & Becky or Mickie & Alexa disolving their partnership over something nobody ever knew (even the creative team). Is all lazy instead of making people earn their match.

    Dana should stop doing that thing with her tongue and her plastic lips, it’s awkward.

  • LaurenYorkStan

    MICKIE VS ALEXA YALL YAAAASS

  • Okay can they make Alicia go buckwild cray cray again? She would be a major wildcard in the division and add the depth it needs. She should be used better than being some F-level cruiserweights flunkie.

  • brock

    Raw Women’s Division is still better than Smackdown and I am way more interested in Raw Women’s Title at Wrestlemania than I am Smackdown Title Match, Raw Has The Top 3 Women in The Company Sasha, Charlotte, and Bayley

          Then don’t watch WWE because it’s called world wrestling entertainment not just wrestling which doesn’t make you a star CLEARLY. Enjoy your stale boring Sasha vs Charlotte while SD women are actually becoming the whole package.

          • brock

            Hope You keep enjoying The Terrible Smackdown Women’s Matches which never live up to hype, While Sasha, Charlotte, and Bayley are having incredibly Matches on Raw, Please Sasha and Charlotte are bigger Stars then any Women on Smackdown Not Named Nikki

          • wwepassion

            Haven’t seen a great match from raw since before hell in a cell lol. Again matches aren’t what makes you succeed and SD overshadowing raw is the proof.

          • brock

            You must be blind then The Sasha vs Charlotte falls count anywhere match in November was good , Bayley Vs Charlotte on Raw in February was good to, You Can’t just have good characters and not good Matches either, Smackdown my develop there

          • wwepassion

            Again wrestling does not make you a star CLEARLY. No matter what you say you won’t change the fact that SD is succeeding while Raw is flopping and struggling to keep up. Need I remind that Sasha and Charlotte were praised in the beginning but then the story fell flat which made fans chant boring during their omg contract HIAC segment and had fans begging for them to end the feud despite the good matches so your point has been debunked. You enjoy them fine but come back to reality and admit that SD is the top womens brand do to excellent writers, the talented mic work, charismatic women, and all of them are credible unlike raw. Again wrestling doe not make you a star and it’ll only get you so far.

          • brock

            Again Sasha, Charlotte and Bayley are all ready Stars and are all more over than any Smackdown Women, Talent Mic work my ass, The Only who can talk on Smackdown is Alexa, You can’t just talk either you have to be to Wrestle to and For all The Talk The Smackdown Women Do when it comes to Have the match, The Smackdown Women never deliver, if You want to keep Watching ok Talking segment with Terrible Women Wrestling Matches go right, I would rather great Wrestling Matches Which Sasha, Charlotte and Bayley have over Talking any day, The Raw Women Will Have The better Women’s Match At Wrestlemania like always, The Smackdown Women’s Match at Wrestlemania will be my piss break cause it Terrible like always

          • wwepassion

            How many times do I have to tell you despite your arguments SD is winning and raw knows it which why in real interviews outside of WWE they are asked how they feel about that. So I just debunked everything you said.

          • brock

            No matter what You Say The Smackdown Women’s Matches are Flat out Terrible and the promos are horrible, The Raw Women’s Division Still has all The Star Power and The Better Matches and The One WWE Promotes more

          • wwepassion

            You lost already just stop lol

          • brock

            Nope You Smackdown Marks are the one who are losing and who are blind keep Watching your Terrible Smackdown Women Promos And You’re Terrible Women’s Matches, I will Raw Women’s Division Who Have The Bigger Stars and Who are having great matches and You Can Watch Again As The Raw Women’s Match at Wrestlemania will blow The Smackdown Women’s Match at Wrestlemania out of The Water

          • wwepassion

            Didn’t both reading as you lost already

          • brock

            I am Not Lost The Smackdown Women’s is Boring and Stale it’s full of Bad Promos and Terrible Wrestling Matches, I would Rather Watch a Real Women’s Division That has good Wrestling Matches Which Raw Women’s Division Does, The Raw Women’s Division has Main Evented Raw 3 Times and Main Evented a Pay Per View, Has The Smackdown Women’s Division Main Evented a Pay Per View Nope and Its only Main Evented Their Tv Show Once, Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley are much bigger Stars then any of Those Boring Smackdown Women

          • wwepassion

            I said I’m no longer reading what you write because you already lost the argument

          • brock

            Nope You’re The One Who Has lost The Argument

          • wwepassion

            you already know you did because I have proof that SDbis more successful because many raw stars have addressed it from being asked about in interviews….checkmate

          • brock

            Nope You Lost, Interviews don’t mean Shit, The Raw Women continued to get the bigger Spot Light Until Smackdown Women Main Event a Pay Per View Come talk to me until then you’re argument is bogus, And I bet Smackdown Women’s Title Match Will be on The Preshow at Wrestlemania, Why Because The Raw Women’s Title is more important in Vince eyes and has The Bigger Stars and That’s why it will be on Main Card, and All You Smackdown Marks who It’s such a great Show, But Let Raw Beats Smackdown every week in The Ratings End Of discussion

    Maybe I should’ve watched this live because that beatdown wasn’t all that. It was good and all but the comments on here and Twitter made me think it was like Naomis beatdown on Cam and Paige.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    https://media.giphy.com/media/26FPEEpWjnlD9cpPO/giphy.gif Yes, yes and yes!!!! About time Dana dragged Charlotte. That was the moment of the night to me.

  • glassjaw

    To adopt a cliche, Raw had the right idea but the execution was lackluster. The problem was the entire show worked around the Steph/Foley angle. Indeed the only match with any meat on its bones was Bayley’s collision with Nia – and it was a shabby showing with a crummy finish. There was a real missed opportunity in not having Nia properly fuck Bayley up, softening her for the Wrestlemania match. Elsewhere Charlotte and Dana had a great backstage bit that foreshadowed their split… only it was exclusive to wwe.com. Dana did, however, sort of give me shades of Luna Vachon attitude; hopefully the angle with Charlotte is a conduit for Emma to return and grab the division by the balls.

    • Marshy

      I am glad that I wasn’t the only one who thought Dana was give me shades of Luna Vachon attitude.

  • conan_kun
  • Can we have the futuristic, mysterious Dana Brooke from NXT back?

    http://dailywrestlingnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/WWE-NXT-4-29-2015-gifs-001_005.gif

    I liked her much better than this Jillian lite.

    • I hate that stupid finger snap thing she does, I swear it bugs tf out of me ?

  • glassjaw

    I did love the Emma promo, though. This is the way her initial return should have been hyped.

  • Not sure where they’re going with Dana at the moment…which is why I think we’re all talking about it– we FINALLY don’t know a detail about what’s coming on Raw. Aside from that, it’s boring as hell. I was so hardcore for Raw after the split until I realized they’re doing nothing but focusing on Charlotte.
    I gained respect for the “Queen” but stop shoving her down our throat. We get it, she’s epic!

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      You see what happens when she’s not involved though. That match with Nia and Bayley was a flop. Charlotte makes everything better

      • No I agree. I’m a Charlotte fan now, but I don’t want her to be “forced” because she’s already good enough. She’s earned the title as greatest female athlete in WWE.

  • Allyn

    Finally now hopefully this takes charlotte out of the title picture for a while, let her have this feud with Dana and hopefully Emma. Everything else was blah….same old raw.

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    Really surprised/happy with the reaction Dana got. Hopefully this leads to a program with Dana/Emma and Charlotte.

    The match with Nia and Bayley was a big pile of hot shit. I still want to see Nia in the match at Wrestlemania though if not just to see her and Charlotte finally face off.

    I’m getting impatient with the Sasha heel turn, hopefully they make it worth it though when it finally happens.

  • conan_kun

    Hope Charlotte don’t win back the title at Wrestlemania, then have a side feud with Dana, while Bayley feuds with Nia and Sasha probably feuds with returned Emma. Emma may not reunite with Dana if Dana gonna be babyface permanently. Why do we cheer for Charlotte if she gets outnumbered against Emma and Dana since she’s abused Dana a lot to begin with.

  • Montel Porter

    I’m surprised at the negative responses because I thought this was a great night for the Raw women’s division.Nia and Dana two non horsewomen were pretty much the stars of the night isn’t that a good thing and what most of you wanted?

    Charlotte vs Bayley vs Sasha is gonna happen and honestly we already knew this was gonna happen months ago.And I rather they keep Emma in the back then just throw her out there right now because she’s really not needed at the moment.But mark my words she will be the main focal point of the women’s division after mania.

    Overall the girls of Raw are showing promise on what’s to come in the future imo.

  • Shane Murray

    I know everyone will be like ” about time Dana drags Charlotte etc” … but I’d just also like to point out that even though the match was short and sweet, Dana looked so much more comfortable and intense in the ring, who knows if she has been training or not? But she sure showed great aggression. Very big props to the star of the night

    • Diva_Fan

      Yes I noticed this as well she was looking a lot intense and fluid in the ring !

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    I disagree with Alex on this review. Nia Jax is needed in the title picture, is the only fresh contender and the only one fans haven’t seen as champions (excluding Emma until she returns). I’m tired of seeing Sasha, Charlotte & Bayley around the title picture or as champions. It has been around two to three years of this. So if I can get a fresh face like Emma or Nia, I’ll take it.

    I liked Nia’s match, she just don’t do much to dominate, toss her competition around, squash it, and when she performs a power move, is to end it.

    Unfortunately I didn’t liked Dana’s segment. Not only she lost quickly, this won’t push her anywhere. This was meant to create such a great rivalry but let’s see where it goes. The only thing I gotta say is that I loved how the crowd reacted on Dana. This showed how good Charlotte is as a heel!

  • BlondeNightmare

    Is it just me or it seems like since Bayley became the champ, it gets a little bit more and more loose the way the things are going around in the women’s division? Honestly saying, it looks like Bayley isn’t able to show how she was like in NXT, right now on Raw. Plus, just like Sasha, Charlotte and of course any other female roster has been all waiting in line for the women’s championship, calling up Bayley to the main roster was a bit too fast for the division. All the women cannot get a shot in a equal way. I’m not blaming Bayley. It just is. I agree that Sasha and Charlotte are very talented in many aspects required to wrestlers, but the fact is that these days, it gets less orignal day by day.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Maryse just name dropped Kelly Kelly on smackdown live and got Nikki/John vs Maryse/Miz confirmed for mania. I predict Kelly Kelly returns at WrestleMania and helps maryse get the win over Nikki for her team. I said back when Kelly was on raw I hoped she came back and paired with Summer if on raw or Maryse if on smackdown so if so I will be pretty excited, I always wanted Kelly and maryse to team up and for Kelly to be heel and it looks like we might be getting both of those at once.

    • I’m all for this idea of a Kelly Kelly & Maryse alliance. I don’t respect Kelly but I can see how it would be entertaining. Just making a point though– if this is Nikki’s last match for a while, do you really think she’s gonna lose? I doubt it.

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        I don’t think nikki is taking a break. The whole rumor began saying she was injured but that’s obviously not the case after her match with Natalya so I don’t think she worked that hard to return for 6-8 months.

        • Joseph

          Its been reporting that Nikki is gonna take time off and when she comes back shes not gonna be working a full time WWE schedule.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            I just don’t believe that rumor at least not until I hear it from the horses mouth. I just don’t see nikki pushing through injury just to return for such a short time. The rumor was she was taking time off to nurse an injury and then coming back part time but after her match with Nattie it’s obvious she doesn’t have an injury so that leaves the rest of the rumor less likely to be true.

        • I really hope you’re right! Usually rumors that float around are true so I’m kinda believing this one. I do agree that I don’t think it’s from an injury..maybe she’s taking care of other business ventures.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            Maybe 3 more weeks till we find out lol

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        If it is nikki’s last match for a while though I can totally see her losing to put over Maryse and Kelly if she is coming back. It could easily be written where she gets injured leading to her rumored break. She put over Nattie so maybe she is using her time to put some women over.

  • Kira_cx

    The only thing worth talking about was Dana turning on Charlotte after that nothing else was important IMO

  • -B

    yaaasss at some change for dana, i was so happy to see the girl get some spotlight & forget about the same old nia vs bayley / hyping triple threat at wrestlemania
    fingers crossed they will dana with emma agan after emma is back, i mean i love EnD, it’s like one of my fav teams ever that the wwe created

  • Don Prima

    Wow, the crowd was really behind Dana when she attacked Charlotte. I hope the new light on Dana works in her favor the subsequent weeks. ?

  • Kvngbalor

    I don’t see Charlotte and Dana feuding much into Mania i bet next week Charlotte cuts a promo about carrying Dana and how Dana has a thing for turning her back on those who made her Dana comes out cut a promo attacks Charlotte Emma comes out beats the crap out of Dana Charlotte grabs the mic and says you remember your old pal Emma don’t you the one who as soon as she was out of action you jumped on my coat tail and forgot she existed you were right Dana this is the END for you Emma walls out ring screaming it’s all about me Dana leading to the two having a mania match probably pre show after Mania Dana picks up where she left off with Charlotte

    • Dylan Gutierrez

      Emma’s character on Twitter and the whole Emmalina personality has been against the 4HW. To side with Charlotte would be a step backwards and leave Dana even more at a disadvantage. The two of them worked well together because they both added strength to one another’s weaknesses and shortcomings but all of it was ended prematurely with Emma’s injury.

      It could possibly lead to a Emma though being her ruthless character sticking up for Dana and then also attacking the other women still maintaining her heel status and Dana possibly coming into her own and being a serious competitor for a change rather than a jobber.

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Tbh Nia just isn’t ready. But let’s talk about that face turn by Dana lol. She legit served some intensity and that’s all you can ask for since she isn’t a mat master however great moment for her let’s hope that’s how Emma gets involved furthermore. Sasha friggin banks ??? love her direction Rn. She’s having fun. Overall okay raw. Still not sold on Nia

  • Justlikecam

    Why does everyone think Emma is the key to sending the RAW women’s division into a better direction? ? She is pretty bland personality wise.. I personally think it’s time for Asuka to debut, the night after Wrestlemania.

    • I know I’m dying for Emma because she’s an actual wrestler that can hang with the likes of Sasha and Charlotte. I think she’s better than Bayley imo…
      Super ready for an Asuka debut as well!

  • Joseph

    I feel like Dana face turn is to trick us cause why do it now 3 weeks before Mania. This could be a set up to Charlotte face turn with Evil Emma coming back.

    • conan_kun

      Why do Charlotte turn face when even Dana gets cheer and chant for attacking Charlotte

      • Joseph

        If Dana gonna be with Evil Emma agian i doubt Emma is gonna be a face.

        • Pearlita Marie McGee

          Emma can be a tweener.

    • Pearlita Marie McGee

      I feel like Dana’s gonna cause Charlotte on WM. Imagine Dana, holding her foot while Sasha/Bayley pin/submit each other for the win. xD

  • saul de la efe

    Dana turning against charlotte is the only thing that i´m actually looking forward in here…
    obviously i will see what happens with the triple threat but Nia should be added to give a different twist to this repetitive crap… and i love charlotte and i´m a big supporter, but she should be involved in a feud out of the championship, maybe emma and dana vs charlotte o whatever cuz i swear if she wins at mania i will have a heart attack!

    Yawn! Only thing I enjoyed was Dana finally getting a backbone.

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      Same

  • Jorge Hernandez Moran

    To me the women’s mania match shouldve been Bayley vs Sasha and have Charlotte vs Dana on the preshow

    • Joseph

      Well we are getting Bayley vs. Sasha at SummerSlam.

      • Jorge Hernandez Moran

        Oh god no i love the 4hw but i cant take this for another 6 months where’s The Foxxy I want Emma Summer needs to return I hope Paige still has a job i want more than just Sasha Bayley and Charlotte im dying for a Crazy Fox championshio reign if Naomi finally got what she deserved Foxxy can get it too

        • Preach

        • Joseph

          Sasha and Bayley have history in Brooklyn so it makes sense.

      • Gail-Rollins Fan

        I don’t think they can drag it out that long. Assuming Sasha turns heel before or at Mania. They shouldn’t do more than two PPV’s with it. They need to get it done quickly, and then ship Sasha off to Smackdown when they do the draft/trades.

        • Joseph

          The next RAW PPV is Payback which is in Bayley’s hometown of San Jose, California. If you want Sasha to get legit heel heat thats the perfect place to do it.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    I skipped Raw this week as well. Made the right choice again ?

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    My only issue wit the turn was that it’s so random. By now I’m thinking Dana basically is either quietly going to leave Charlotte side or get her revenge after Mania. Now weeks before Mania and it doesn’t even go with the title match? If Dana was going to be the fourth participant than yea I’m for it for being now. I thought she’d join the match til Nia was on my screen later on in the night….

  • ralfikh

    The only xciting thing is dana for raw this week..
    She deserve this push..
    Soooo refreshing

  • Nathan

    Yawnnnn!!! Another boring raw. Dana finally snapping gave me life though :)

  • Mike

    Since Dana has snapped I think EnD will be reuniting after Mania to take out Charlotte.

    • conan_kun

      I kinda think that Emma may end up turn on her but didn’t join Charlotte’s side as she’s upset to Dana abandoned her for Charlotte and didn’t even visit her when she’s injured.

    • Pearlita Marie McGee

      Yasss EnD… I would love to add Nia there too.
      E = Emma
      N = Nia
      D = Dana

      • Instant Classic ?

        Not bad not bad at all

  • Cathy Kelley.

    Dana turning on Charlotte was the only interesting thing. Nia vs Bayley? Boring, we have seen that match a lot and Nia can’t even pull out new moves, bye girl.

  • OriginalsFan

    It was great to see a new change that Dana is turning against Charlotte. She was a bit over the top at times, but her intensity was good. However, the fact that she lost to Sasha in a hot second doesn’t really do her much justice either. You want to beat down one the of the best on the roster, the woman that left Sasha like a broken doll, but yet, you lost to that same broken doll in the most pathetic fashion.

    Nia…I can’t believe Raw, the 3 hour flagship show, only has roughly 5 women to work with. Like they wont even bother. This is like the 10th times we see Bayley and Nia go head to head. The finish was just sad too, because it spoils everything, and it repeats previous week. They keep recycling the same old matches, same old finishes, yet, they have permanently exiled Alicia to 205, where she is still being this useless manager. Give the girl a match, give her a storyline. Why not?

    It’s like a waste of time watching Raw’s woman division, though Smackdown has its flaws, it manages to engage everyone is some sort of storyline in a good way. Raw has not been able to do that.

    • Robann

      Sasha definitely grabbed her tights to win, so I have a strong feeling they’re gonna go with her getting little controversial victories here and there before she turns full-on Heel.

  • howie_ruhl

    I am beyond happy for Dana because of that crowd reaction. I still think she shouldn’t have left NXT too soon but I’m glad that her turn was well received. Maybe now she can incorporate more of her gymnastics and work herself into an exciting moveset.

  • Francisco Baguer

    Lets be real, the only reason Dana got a reaction from the crowd is because they are sick of Charlotte as much as I am. Before this Dana gets no reaction. They only cheered for because they hate Charlotte so bad.

    • LaurenYorkStan

      Oh

    • Robann

      Who cares? They were still behind her.

    • Instant Classic ?

      Honestly the source of the reaction makes no difference, we’re all winners if we have a heel good enough to incite that type of reaction for Dana lol

      • Francisco Baguer

        There’s a difference between heel heat and white heat. White heat/X-Pac is get off my TV, I hate watching you and I’d don’t want to watch anymore. Thats the heat Charlotte has.

        • Instant Classic ?

          I think her’s is more traditional heat, she annoys the hell out of people including myself with her constant booking in the title scene but she’s a great worker and keeps improving in the ring and on the mic, so it’s mostly forgiven when she performs. I think Eva has that X-Pac heat down like no other currently lol

          • Francisco Baguer

            Oh great. Who are you? A Charlotte mark? Do you sexually fantasies her? Oh my gosh, you must a brony

          • Instant Classic ?

            HELL NO I’m not a Charlotte mark lol and I’m not a dude let alone some dweeb who likes ponies (except for unicorns. Love those), I can’t even call myself a loyal fan. I’ve just grown to appreciate the effort she puts into improving herself, that’s all. But that doesn’t mean a little shade here or there or some undeniable truth regarding her goes unnoticed on my end

          • Francisco Baguer

            Well I guess I can scratch that. So I guess your cool with me unlike the rest of those trolls/fanbrats.

          • Instant Classic ?

            Lmao believe me being gracious and praising Char is not an every day thing for me honestly but I have to give props when due. There definitely are some people who go waaaay overboard especially in the social media sector of our community at please-block-me levels of bad (even if all fandoms have their handful of shameless antagonists) so I saw for sure where you thought this was going lol O.O but no worries I promise I’m sane or at least partially

    • wwepassion

      It doesn’t matter, no one forced them to chant Dana, a reaction is what you want no matter how you get it.

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Here only cause I was nicely surprised by Dana. The rest was meh.

  • Diva_Fan

    Miss Dana Brooke slayed so glad she’s finally broken away from Charlotte and is getting a chance to shine I also loved how the crowd were behind her and chanting her name !

  • Dionte Brown

    Smackdown was not much better tonight honestly. I really like Alexa I love her character she just doesn’t have chemistry with the other ladies.

  • The good things of this raw was sasha showing sides of heel and Dana Brooke face turn, weird to say this bur I’m happy for her.
    Nia Jax still lacking of intensity and moves, I agree with the writer, she needs all of this to really earn the spont of been on the WM 33 match.

  • ?K . A . T ?

    So happy Dana finally turned face! Excited to see what she does now.

  • vdcvt

    Dana surprised me. I really liked it when she turned against Charlotte, looked believable. Long time coming but I like how Dana pulled it off, I’m keen to see how it’ll play out and maybe involve Emma returning to side or feud with Dana..?
    My only thing is with it being so close to Wrestlemania I don’t want Charlotte vs Dana to rush over. I think WWE may have plans to incorporate it with the title match, be it Dana just distracting Charlotte or something. But I’m keen.
    As for Nia, I kinda agree. It’s been the same old same old, and tbh it was nice to see her be aggressive but it’s just been used as a last minute thing to spice up a feud and WWE is just making her blah in between.

  • Dana YES she finally showed some fire and i loved it and raw was enjoyable

  • MeddlingDiva

    Bored outta my mind until The End

  • QueenSableBomb

    Charlotte is a great heel, that’s all I’ll say lol

    The only highlight is Dana turning on Charlotte, which is kinda overdue but happy

  • Dreignz

    Dana was the best part. I want the Dana of NXT back

  • Danny?

    Finally Dana showing some fire here. She had a great turn on Charlotte and I can’t think of the last time we had a face turn like this so it is very refreshing to see. Charlotte was great on the mic as usual and Dana’s offense and begging Charlotte to get into the ring was perfect. The rest of RAW was meh.

  • jbrizzy

    I’m really not into nia at all she’s slow she has no intensity & her moves are as basic as a first year rookie…..it makes me appreciate tamina more
    I would rather Emma get the fourth spot instead of nia he’ll she deserves it for getting treaded like carp for the last few months,
    It’s funny how one simple action can make you START to like someone Dana in this case
    The match was only worth this comment!!!!

  • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

    Very happy for Dana and the reaction she got, but Raw isn’t known for consistency and I wouldn’t be surprised that this is dropped in a week much like last time or the Alicia/Nia feud. They clearly don’t care about crowd reactions on Raw so I won’t get my hopes up.

    Why is this site so behind? Lol

    Good for them finally letting Dana turn on Charlotte. It was overdue but I wonder if this was a good idea. Since Charlotte is already in the match at Mania so what is Dana gonna do until Mania? & Emma…they should just put her on Smackdown. They are hurting her on RAW more than anything. Been waiting almost a half a year for her to return

    Maybe its me but I didn’t like either segment although I did like Dana turning on Charlotte more than Nia vs Bayley. I’m finally happy that Dana turned on Charlotte. It’ll definitely give her something to do BUT with how the faces and heels are right now and with Alicia Fox being MIA and Emma still trying to find herself its uneven… especially if its true that Sasha is turning heel soon. My one gripe about this segment was WHY IS CHARLOTTE RUNNING AWAY FROM DANA? Sure she attacked her but Charlotte is supposed to be this dominate queen but is running away from someone who legit just lost a match right beforehand by a roll up… in less than 2 minutes. Who decided that was a good idea??
    As for Nia vs Bayley I enjoyed having her being DQ’d but I feel like theres no OOMPH in her strikes. I didn’t watch the match (I only watched the clip they posted on FB/Youtube) and I was bored. What she should have done if she wanted to look like a dominant force was bum-rush the ref from behind while he was trying to untangle Bayley from the tree-of-woe. Also just throwing Bayley into the barricade is getting old (being thrown into the barricade in general is overdone). We’ve seen Nia charge through the barricade… why isn’t she doing this more often??

      Charlotte has ran from Sasha as well though. Plus I think it was more that Dana attacking her took her by surprise. She looked shocked, but also played it off like Dana wasn’t worth her time.

      • MK126

        I think it would have really sold the story when Charlotte said “You’re nothing. You’re not gonna ride my coattails to WM” if she legit beat the crap out of her. It also would have given Dana sympathy from the crowd too.

    Dana Brooke is RAW!!! ?

  • Lushluke

    So Emma and Dana feud with Charlotte after Mania

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Monday’s episode of Raw put the most of the spotlight to Sasha, Nia and Dana and that was great to see for the most part.

    First of all, what they are doing with Sasha is really great! The story being developed arround Sasha is pretty much fantastic literally one of the best slow burn to a heel turn they have done with a woman. A purpose is clear and she is showing slowly but surely new aspect of herself without reaching her goals too much. That backstage segment with Bayley was great and it’s nice to see her keep getting momentum on herself with yet another win on Raw here.

    Second of all, Dana Brooke’s face turn was very well executed and the fact that she received such a major reaction from the crowd despite the irregularity of her pairing with Charlotte is a true testament of Charlotte’s value as a heel and as a peformer. She is truly a star and can put anyone over big time. She’s a big asset! Dana got to shine big time and without necessarily being included in the match, could play a massive factor into Charlotte loosing and there is a story that can be really developed here from now till after WM.

    Last but not least, Nia Jax. See, patience is all we needed and Nia’s inclusion into the title is already in works. The match in itself was just fine, nothing out of this world tbh in terms of in-ring action but featured a great character work from Nia in particular. Seeing her like get angry completely demolishing the ring stairs was great character work here. That’s little things like this that she needs to do more often now all she need is work more on her moveset. The ending as well was great booking. Sold her dominance (even tho I feel like she could have done more damage in the end).

    Overall, quite satisfying Raw here! (Oh, and I am truly fan of Emma’s vignette! Her voice in it truly makes it special)

      Nothing about raw was fantastic lol. Sasha’s turn is great because it’s basic and expected.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Your level of credibility is so low tbh then I can’t even take you seriously so… Yeah..

        • wwepassion

          I see you have no response.

  • Monkey Tennis

    Monday night… meh.

    The prospect of Nia in the match at Wrestlemania is a worrying one. She’s just so bloody dull in every single aspect of her performance; wrestling, mic work, just her complete lack of presence in general has me fast forwarding through her matches most of the time. And then there’s her inconsistent booking – She loses clean to Sasha a couple of weeks ago and now she’s back to being the ‘unstoppable’ monster… like we’ve forgotten all the times she’s lost!

    On the flip-side, Dana’s turn was effective. Yeah , it’s three months late and came at the weirdest time possible, but effective nevertheless. Presumably/hopefully this is laying the groundwork for a Charlotte/Dana NON-title feud after ;mania when (fingers crossed) we’ll have heel Sasha vs babyface Bayley for the title (whichever of them may be holding it at the time).

  • Welchy

    Charlotte is THAT good of a heel.

  • Lushluke

    Yeh not sure it was Dana turning face more of people just fucking hate Charlotte. I love her.

    • Jesus’s brother

      of course it was Charlotte great job at being a heel. no way Dana would get this type of reaction if Emma’s was in charlotte’s place LOOL

  • Martin Trombley

    Was I the only one completely taken aback when the crowd ACTUALLY started to cheer for Dana??? Like… I nearly DIED of shock…

    • Instant Classic ?

      NOPE same O.O

  • B J

    Nia will be added to the match to give it some “unpredictabley.”
    Dana will cost Charlotte the Title at Mania setting up their feud.
    Bayley will retain, getting the win over Banks….
    Re-re-re-debute of Emma, setting her up to HELP turn Sasha heel ala Summer Rae NXT – and the two will enter a THREEWAY feud vs Bayley.
    EMMA will finally win the title – only for Paige to return to enter an “original” Revolution storyline.
    In comes Summer Rae to enter the fold and to get the win.
    Fox gets drafted to be on SMACKDOWN.

  • Instant Classic ?

    Dana’s turn should’ve happened ages ago but IDEC it was sooo satisfying to see her FINALLY get the upper hand somewhere and have a bitch tumbling lol. I feel like that reaction is not only a testament to how long overdue this is and how sympathetic of Dana the fans were but for the most part greatly showcasing how truly damn good of a heel Charlotte is. Wow

  • Jesus’s brother

    Mick and Steph should’ve fired Alicia and Summer Rae… they are useless and boring!

  • Womensor

    What do you guys think will be the Raw and SD roster after the Draft?? I predict Alexa going to Raw and Nia going to SD. The rest, idk. What is your prediction?

  • GOD STRATUS•

    You ppl just want to rush everything. These girls have to go another few years and let’s have Dana go over no let’s have Nia go over wait what about Alicia and injured summer and Paige let’s just throw em in somewhere since smackdown throws everybody on the show. Sure why not. ??

    • Jesus’s brother

      looool yup! Let’s have 6 pack challenges every raw and ppv’s!

  • Robann

    DANA!!! Yussss!!! I was so happy when she snapped on Charlotte.

  • Laquane Anderson

    So we just sweeping under the rug the first time Dana snapped on Charlotte? oh we are? Ok.
