  • I’m actually excited to see Lana debut along side the smackdown women’s division and see what she’s made of. I like what I see.

    • HOLLA

      As am I! I usually agree with the DD writers but I feel smackdown redux has been awfully harsh on her

      • I totally agree. I usually agree with what they have to say as well but as far as Lana goes i beg to differ. They were very harsh on her

    • Matt J

      It’s always cool to see change and new faces rise in the women’s division, but Idk, I prefered Lana as an evil Russian like her match and build-up for her WM match rather than an other dance gimmick… But still excited to see her debut

      • I can agree with you on that. I really like the ravashing russian heel gimmck as well but I’m all about giving divas a chance. So with this new gimmick she has going on im willing to see how well she can do. She seems comfortable with her new gimmick.

  • HOLLA

    Lots of interesting, kind of frustrating news this edition, lol!

  • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

    I hate how AAA & their wrestlers always spoil results on social media etc. before they even air.

    Also too bad Hamada’s reign was so short.

    • ?K . A . T ?

      Agreed. I really like Taya but I’m disappointed she got the title back so quickly, I was looking forward to Hamada’s reign. :(

      • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

        Same here. I wanted to see Hamada have a decent reign since I enjoy her so much at Wave.
        The booking of the AAA women’s division has gone down hill anyway over the curse of last year so maybe it’s for the better if Hamada doesn’t stay there for too long.

        I was looking forward for Lady Shani to be next in line to hold the title.
        I wonder what Taya’s second title reign will be like. I like her as well but they haven’t really featured her much in the women’s division lately.

        • ?K . A . T ?

          Completely agree. They hardly do anything with the women these days, absolutely annoys me.

          • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

            So true. I haven’t even seen a proper singles match from Lady Shani nor from Hiedra and both have been around for a long time.

  • Jouey

    Evaaaa nooooo ????

  • Juri Han

    So bye bye to Paige’s career in WWE? what a shame .. I was rooting for her, I feel like she shouldn’t ruin her wrestling life just like that . Especially with how good WWE are treating women now
    As for Lana , I hope she wrestle full time .. and not be Debra 2.0 .

    • Ollie Roche

      Debra wanted to wrestle but WWE felt its not feminine enough for he chacter. Chyna was her trainer.

      • Juri Han

        Too bad, I wonder how she would wrestle back then ..
        I remember when I was a kid and she was my main in the games xD ! Those were fun days ..

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Not surprised about Paige and Eva.
    Eva clearly only wanted fame, doesn’t matter what kind. Too bad she wasted her stans’ time and WWE’s money.

    I don’t see why WWE should feel obligated to use Paige after everything she’s been doing recently tbh. I believe both parts have their faults for the situation, but I can see why she’s a wild card.

  • Super Mateo

    The back and forth between Lynch and Ellsworth has been mildly entertaining. I’m not sure any of it will carry over to television, but I know I’d enjoy seeing a match between them.

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      Becky will break him in half…I’m all for it! :D

  • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

    I’m actually disgusted with Eva.

  • MyleneCruz

    To Eva and Paige… Done with their life. Moving on from both these trash buckets that I had faith in would return and prove everyone else wrong. Whatever bring Ariane back please. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/029249c5bf1599e8ced0fc7320a8e563b778ec9d94df2a67db712cbb0a332503.gif

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      I don’t think Eva and Paige is trash but yea bring back Cameron and Summer Rae.

      • MyleneCruz

        I would have agreed before I got the news they weren’t coming back. I’m so done with them. Waste of talent. And I know WWE isn’t innocent when it comes to them but effort is what counts. It feels like they got frustrated and just gave up.

    • Joseph

      Summer yes the other one no.

      • MyleneCruz

        Your opinion.

  • MK126

    Well dont they document Eva’s suspension on TD? I would assume after that episode airs or even after that part of the episode airs (much like this past episode with Paige they didnt show or mention her again throughout the episode) they’ll prolly announce that they have comes to terms with Eva about releasing her from her contract. Btw where are the TD reduxs?

  • Asa Loves You

    Women of Wrestling is an absolute trash promotion, so nothing will come of that.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    I don’t think this means Paige is leaving. It just means they currently don’t have anything to do with her. Both divisions are pretty much stacked with women who are thrown in a new spot that needs builds. Bringing Paige in would be kind of random unless she shows up managing some male superstar. I’m sure when her movie comes about that she’ll have plenty to do.

    Now on to Eva. I’m highly disappointed in her. I really had a lot of faith in her proving people wrong about her. But I guess those trolls was right. I still support her in her modeling and acting cause no shade home girl slays! But I’m ultra sad she didn’t have her heart in her career with wwe.

  • I’m not surprise with Eva Marie attitude, she never learn how to wrestle, never care about the advises and time that gave to her #GirlBye! Already. In the other hand I really want Paige put her shit together with Del Rio and her career.
    Becky Vs Ellsworth bring it! Can’t wait to see Lana wrestling finally and allign her with Mary Kate as enforcer is a good option.
