Greetings one and all, it’s Josue here and I’ll be covering Raw for Alex this week. Last week, we saw Bayley score a big win when she pinned the Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss in tag team action. With SummerSlam nearly a month away, can Bayley keep her momentum going in time for a title shot at the PPV event? Let’s see how things unfold!

This week, Bayley is set to go one-on-one with Alexa Bliss. The Raw Women’s Champion lands the first strike with a slap across Bayley’s face. Bayley responds by carrying Alexa to a corner and stomps at the champ. Alexa reverses, laying in a few stomps of her own but Bayley is able to create separation when she kicks Alexa in the midsection. Just as Bayley is able to take Alexa down, Nia Jax’s music hits and out comes some backup for Alexa as we head to a commercial break.

When we return, we see Nia is at ringside and Alexa in control over Bayley with a grounded Hammer Lock. Bayley gets to her feet, trying to fight out of Alexa’s hold but gets taken down instead for a two-count.

Bayley catches a boot from Alexa which causes the champion to lose her footing and go down. Bayley then sends Alexa to the ring ropes, setting up for an elevated neck breaker from the middle ropes! The crowd is hot for Bayley, who begins to unleash lots of offense with forearm shots, back elbow shots, a side suplex and a flying elbow drop to Alexa from the second ropes of a corner.

Before Bayley can cover Alexa, the champion rolls to the outside ring. Bayley chases after her but Nia blocks Bayley’s path, serving up as a distraction to allow Alexa land in a cheap shot to Bayley.

Alexa tosses Bayley back in the ring as Nia cheers Alexa on. Suddenly Nia is attacked from behind by none other than Sasha Banks! A dropkick to the apron takes Nia out while back in the ring a Bayley-to-Belly takes Alexa down for the three count win! Bayley has now pinned the Raw Women’s Champion for two weeks in a row!

Post match, during a WWE.com exclusive video, Alexa says she isn’t worried about the ‘technicalities’ of the matches she has had with Bayley as she is still the Raw Women’s Champion.

Later in the evening Sasha Banks and Bayley meet with Raw GM Kurt Angle backstage, who is anxious about coming clean on his “big secret”. Anyone else disappointed that Kurt’s big reveal wasn’t the rumored Dixie Carter affair? All I’m saying is that it would’ve made for one hell of a “WTF? Moment” in 2017 darlin’!

Anyway, back to the heart of the matter, the BFFs explain of a little disagreement they are having at the moment: which one of them deserves to face Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam for the Raw Women’s Title?

In Bayley’s case, she’s been able to pin the champion for two straight weeks now while Sasha already, technically, won her title match against Alexa back at Great Balls of Fire. Sasha argues that had Alexa not pull out that count out stint, she would be a four time Raw Women’s Champion, thus is looking for a fair and proper rematch.

Instead of deciding who truly deserves it more, Kurt books a number one contender match between the two Superstars for next week’s Raw. The winner of that match will go on to face Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam.

Thoughts: So this was probably one of the more safer episodes of Raw. Bayley keeps her momentum going, Alexa remains the target of her peers, Sasha and Nia play supporting roles (for now) and we inch closer to finding out what our Raw Women’s match for SummerSlam will be. Small progression but overall, nothing completely new.

The Bayley/Alexa match was all right – it’s been creative’s direction of Bayley’s character that was always puzzling to me than her ringwork. Bayley is still a fan favorite (how sweet was that small fan interaction Bayley had prior to the match?) so I’m glad to see her pick up steam as she steams back into the title picture.

If rumors are true of a Fatal Four Way at SummerSlam, I’m expecting Nia to interfere next week. If anything, her involvement this week is foreshadowing the inevitable. My only hope is that some tension builds up between Nia/Alexa and/or Sasha/Bayley before the big PPV. Let’s at least try and shake things up WWE. We saw some hint of competition during Sasha and Bayley’s meeting with Kurt, let’s continue with that.

Another question I have this week outside Dixie Carter’s no-show is where the hell is Emma? I’m still waiting to see/hear what she had whispered over to Dana Brooke from the Great Balls of Fire Kickoff show. We saw something on last week’s WWE Main Event but it would appear that storyline is back on the backburner. By the time WWE even remembers building up that segment, its anticipation (if any) will be gone.

What did you think of this week’s Raw? What do you think will happen during next week’s number one contender match? How soon do you think it will be before see a follow-up from the Emma/Dana reunion? Let us know in the comments below1

    what was suppose to happen with dixie carter?

    • Rosanna

      She’s suppose to be Jason Jordan’s mom. We’ll see how this goes though.

      • Gavin

        Rhaka Khan would make more sense. Too bad she wouldn’t be able to pay child support.

        • Rosanna

          Sharmelle!

          • Gavin

            I guess, but that would make Jason Jordan 11 years old.

  • Rosanna

    I don’t care for this feud. I want Alicia Fox! Raw is just an epic fail they really don’t care for the women as much.

  • So will diva.dirt write something about AAA shadiness with Taya and Sexy Star?

  • This is getting annoying. They literally copy-pasted Charlotte’s booking on Alexa, and they keep using the same other 3 girls. It’s literally a repeat of WM.

    • Gavin

      Right. At least Smackdown hasn’t booked Charlotte like she is the same person as Alexa.

      • Exactly

      Yass I literally said the same thing in the Live discussions post. Raw is just so blah!

      • They just keep disappointing us. Such talented roster but trashy writers.

    • Kvngbalor

      Literally booking her as a mini Charlotte

      • Izzy4lw

        Unfortunately, Alexa isn’t anywhere near talented enough in ring to pull of this booking they’re giving her where she can beat these women in a brawl, yet that’s exactly what’s happening :/

        • Kvngbalor

          Idk she’s pretty scrappy when it’s time to brawl Velvet was never the best wrestler but when TNA had those brawls she always impressed and held her own

          • Izzy4lw

            what I mean is they’re booking her as a legitimate threat to these women when that shouldn’t be the case. She should be a cunning heel and a submission specialist, not what she is now which is a 5 foot ‘powerhouse’ who is holding her own with women much taller, heavier, and and better in ring than she is.

          • Jaded

            But Alexa can beat bayley and Sasha in a real fight. Especially Sasha

          • Izzy4lw

            We don’t know that – weight and height plays a significant factor in any physical altercation, and Alexa is shorter than AJ. Also Alexa is barely considered a passable wrestler, so she shouldn’t have the same exact booking that Charlotte did.

          • Jaded

            Alexa has more weight than Sasha and bench presses more

          • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

            Sasha weighs 114 ibs Alexa weighs 102

          • Jaded

            Kelly weighs what?

          • CuCelchy

            The same as a chicken bone.

          • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

            104

          • Jaded

            Charlotte is not that great either, take away Sasha and Natalya and she is just an average wrestler that is unsafe to work with.

          • Joseph

            We don’t know that.

          • Jaded

            She was a former Olympian body builder.

          • Winter

            Ridiculous

          • CuCelchy

            It’s not lol

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            Not with those ghost punches she has….

          • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

            Girl?????????

          • CuCelchy

            But Sasha punching in slow motion tho. Chill out

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            Punching in slow motion where? Alexa punches in slow motion and STILL misses the punches.

            Scream all that extraness she does when she barely connects

      • Bryskers

        But without the skills.

    • Looking Glass

      So true, Alexa’s replaced Charlotte and Nia’s replaced Dana. The only thing that hasn’t been replaced are these garbage PPV builds – are they even storylines or feuds without a narrative?

      Also “the match was decent” really? If this was a couple of years ago there would be a scathing review. I think this is one of those occasions the writers just said ‘women’s revolution/evolution’ and covered up the fact that this match was poor. Alexa pretty much no sold the elbow, nothing felt like it was connected and the finish was classic Divas division Raw.

      • Mark?

        A couple of years ago we would have got a 2 minute match ending in a rollup.

    • Robann

      :( Feel so bad for her….went from being literally revolutionary participating in the finals in the first ever NXT womens championship match with Paige, to this. Smfh

      • All she wants is a chance :/

    • Izzy4lw

      see when Nia was doing this I was rolling my eyes because imo she’s not good enough to demand screen time, but Emma legitimately could be a star. I think she’s beautiful, she’s got a great character, and she is one of the best women in between the ropes from a technical standpoint. Why WWE refuse to acknowledge her and give her chances makes absolutely no sense to me – Emma and Mickie are main event stars who just need a solid build, but they spend all their time sitting in the back. it’s actually really sad.

      • A?.

        Emma has so much potential, she’s so good in the ring and it’s a shame that she’s getting wasted by sitting backstage every single week. People always claim her and the others (Alicia, Mickie, Dana) are not ready, and I wonder why? Oh yeah, because they don’t get the same chances as the rest, they need a proper build up, like SD has been doing, but that’s too much for the Raw’s creative team.

  • Bryskers

    It wasn’t too long ago that Bayley couldn’t do anything to Alexa and was portrayed as a joke. Suddenly she’s showing more fire and wins. It just makes me wonder: what was the point of this whole feud? Why bury Bayley if she’s gonna pick up wins against the champion in a few weeks time? Was it to build sympathy, or only because WWE seems afraid to book one-on-one feuds for their women superstars? It would be different if Bayley grew from her losses and had to somehow “climb the ladder” again by going up against other women. But there was nothing of the sort: She just came back and started to win again.

    I still believe that this feud did not need the inclusion of Bayley and Nia. But of course Raw had to ruin a perfectly promising storyline. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be Raw.

    • perceval

      I think it’s more that they suddenly realized burying her was a bad idea. It’s also worth noting that Sasha was supposed to be a speed bump building to Alexa vs Nia at SummerSlam.

      There are a few possible reasons. There was a lot of doubt among fans that Alexa vs Nia would be a good match. If it was a Raw only PPV, it wouldn’t matter as much, but this would be on the same bill as Naomi vs whoever it is, maybe Nattie, Charlotte, or Becky (hopefully not Lana for the 80th time). It can’t stink up the place.

      Then, there’s what was teased at… That would be a spoiler, and there’s every chance that someone reading this avoided being spoiled by social media and news sites, but… If that leads to something, the Horsewomen need to look strong.

      Where they’ve gone wrong with Alexa is having her as this powerhouse just physically dominating everyone, which is no more convincing than when they were having Kelly just physically overpower Beth and Nattie. Gail and AJ worked because, while they were little, they were submission specialists. Give Alexa booking like Gail and AJ, someone who’ll be crushed in a brawl, but wins through agility and submissions.

      • Bryskers

        WWE does have an habit of backtracking their own booking decisions. Good for Bayley if they realized that she is an asset to the division, but if they felt the need to completely cancel their previous decisions because they’re not sure if Alexa can have a good match without Bayley or Sasha, then it only proves that she is not the right person to carry the championship.

        • perceval

          Again, Alexa needs to be a submission specialist to be believable. We would never have bought Gail just flat out physically dominating Victoria, but winning this way…

          https://youtu.be/RnxeSZeJmPc

          Same with AJ and the Black Widow. While willful suspension of disbelief is a part of wrestling, you don’t want to push it too far, where the audience notices obvious physical differences. They tried it with Trish and Christy, trying to sell Christy is much physically stronger than Trish, despite the fact that you just had to look at them to know better. Trish thought it was so stupid that she made a point of shooting all over the segment establishing this live on Raw, making sure everyone watching noticed the physical differences between them…

          https://youtu.be/jqiIf-YMQ14

          Yeah, Trish was disgruntled. I’d guess Vince gave her a major chewing out backstage, too.

          But, regarding Bayley and Sasha, I’d guess that spoiler we can’t talk about until it airs altered the booking more than anything.

          • Bryskers

            Changing Alexa’s style would certainly help, but I’m not sure it would be enough to hide the fact that she’s so behind girls like Sasha and Bayley, or even Emma and Mickie. The best thing for her would be to let her grow more outside of the title picture. But otherwise I agree with you.

            And as for THE spoiler, I don’t believe there’s gonna be any follow up. I think it was just a little nod to help push THAT person’s alignment. I wouldn’t read too much into it.

          • perceval

            According to Meltzer (Yeah, I know), Bayley was pulled from a house show just for the spoiler. He figures they wouldn’t have gone to the trouble if plans weren’t set.

            But, if that’s where they’re going, it’s reason enough to protect Bayley and Sasha.

            Until that airs, it’s going to be the 900 lb elephant in the room when it comes to speculation regarding upcoming storylines. :)

          • Bryskers

            I don’t know, if they really wanted to settle that, they would have brought Sasha in as well, and they probably would have staged more than just this little face-off :/ I’m still skeptical about all of this.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Wait, What’s “THE spoiler”, I’m confused..

          • MK126

            From the MYC taping

          • Bryskers

            It’s from the MYC tapings, something happened with the 4hw. I don’t know if you read them so I don’t want to say too much :/

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Oh yeah, I remember

          • But then again, no one questioned Trish when Victoria basically became Trish’s whipping boy for the second half of her career. Or when they put her over Jazz countless times (a woman whose wrestled AND beaten men) back when she couldn’t even run the ropes properly.

          • perceval

            Trish and Lita weren’t tiny. Even AJ Lee is bigger than Alexa. So, Alexa needs AJ style matches.

          • Jaded

            Alexa’s thighs alone out weighs AJ’s whole body

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Love your point about Alexa. Really

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      The problem is that RAW can’t book more than one segment for women per show. That makes them package the 4 of them together all the time and making this non-sense storyline. WWE wanted to make you believe they cared about women, in reality it was a storyline, ran hot for 2 years and now is back to crap. In a 3 hour show, they have a hard time booking different feuds and featuring more than 4 women.
      If they only use Sasha and Alexa then the problem will be that they only use two. Is a loose/loose situation for women right now.

  • Gavin

    Bayley, Alexa, and Sasha are the most boring three women on Raw. I want to see Alicia Fox vs Mickie James again!

    • MK126

      Alicia vs Mickie now would be much better than their matches in the past!

      • Gavin

        I’m ready to see how she is gonna contort her body to sell the DDT.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Bayley and Alexa? I agree. At least Sasha entertains everyone when she gets into the ring.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    I’m so glad Emma spoke out last night. Literally the same 4 women are used week in and week out trading pointless wins and losses. All they did was swap Charlotte with Alexa and thought we wouldn’t notice. You have freaking Alicia Fox. Emma and MICKIE DAMN JAMES (the woman who defeated Trish stratus at her first WM) doing absolutely nothing. I really hope Emma goes to Smackdown. And WHERE THE HELL IS MY GIRL SUMMER RAE?!

    • Gavin

      I think Summer is going in the model/actress direction. Wouldn’t be surprised if she got released soon :L

      • TorrieTrishStacyLita

        Ugh I miss her so much!!!!!!

    • conan_kun

      It’ll be stupid if WWE punishes her for standing up, but if WWE releases her right away or she asks for release, perhaps I can be happy to her so she can go to better promotion which will use her better, like Cody Rhodes and Austin Aries did.

      • Joseph

        Emma done that in the past and she didn’t get into trouble.

    • iloveTorrie

      I said the exact same thing like ugh…… they might as well keep bring charlotte and Becky to raw and mickie, Dana, Emma, and Alicia to SD since it seems like raw only using the nxt girls

  • Nadia

    Is there a reason why we are just copy and pasting Alexa in the Charlotte roll? Another Fatal 4 Way like Mania? The divsion finally had some monetum with Alexa/Sasha and they decided to nothing. WWE creative really sucks.

    I just want Sasha to win tbh and I don’t want another Fatal 4 way BUT I have a feeling if Nia doesn’t interfere, Sasha is losing clean to set up the heel turn. I don’t think that’s wise at this point. She IS your most over face. As soon as she appears, pop. Hits one move, pop. The crowd wants to cheer her. I don’t understand why WWE won’t let them and give her a face run with a belt than turn her. Willing to let it play out though because it could be good storytelling for Sasha to turn heel exactly one year from when Bayley debuted at Battleground in the same arena next week.

  • MK126

    Its sad to say but Raw’s womens division just isn’t important to me anymore. TBH I’m enjoying Basketball Wives and now Love n Hip Hop Hollywood airs next Monday at 8 so there goes 2 hours dedicated to ratchet tv (don’t come for me for using the word ratchet). There’s nothing interesting about Raw’s division anymore since we are literally back to square one with only using 4 women from the entire roster who are in the title hunt except we switched Alexa for Charlotte. Sasha/Bayley/Nia have literally been in the title picture for what seems like eternity and its stale AF. It’s sad to see Emma begging to be used and lord only knows what happened to that Dana/Emma storyline that keeps getting started and dropped. We saw Emma and Dana on the GBOF preshow and then we saw Mickie vs Emma with Dana watching their match behind the scenes. Its really not that hard to book these three ladies in a feud and have EnD form again. Why is the Raw “creative” team so unfucking creative??!

    • Ikr they always start and drop things and it’s annoying

      • MK126

        And people complain that SDL uses all their women yet Raw can barely use Emma/Dana/Mickie/Alicia/Summer correctly

        • Tamina is more relevant than them, that’s how good SD is. I’ll never understand why some complain about that.

          • MK126

            Lana gets more screen time/title opportunities than these girls and that’s sad to say

          • :(
            I wouldn’t even mind this title storyline if we had an alternative feud/s with other girls, but they just use the main ones and let others stay at catering. It’s sad.

          • MK126

            It is sad and what makes it worse is that we’ve seen in the past where its been the same few women shown on TV but their feuds were much better (Vinces Devils vs Trish, Ashley, Mickie) or even when SD didn’t have a belt we had Sable vs Torrie, Nidia being Jamie Nobles blind girlfriend, Shaniqua with the Basham Brothers, Torrie, Nidia, and Dawn vs Shaniqua. Feuds back then were poppin… now its all flash and no substance

          • Exactly omg especially that Torrie era when they didn’t even have the title. Ugh they need to wake up

          • MK126

            If they can have all the RAW divas throw Lita a baby shower and then have Victoria slap Trish for losing in Diva Dodgeball then im sure creative can pull something out of their asses LOL

          • They could never be that iconic again

          • MK126

            They cant but they have the tools to be that iconic again and they don’t use them. Its like creative is just going through the motions of collecting their paycheck and putting out BS storylines. How does on get a job with creative cause if they get paid to do jack shit I want their job

          • And the fact when wrestlers get released, they are the ones losing their jobs when creative can’t do their jobs. It’s not hard at all like

          • perceval

            But would we really want, say, Maryse, getting title shots every other week? Can we let Naomi defend against someone besides Lana?

          • MK126

            If Maryse went back to WWE to actually wrestle instead of managing The Miz and her skills were up to where they were before she injured her knee then I’d say sure. Maryse pre knee injury was decent enough to have solid matches like she did with Michelle. We can also let someone besides Lana challenge Naomi for the title but the point I was trying to make was that Lana who should be at the bottom of the womens locker room is getting title matches when she didn’t do anything to deserve them. Alicia/Mickie/Dana/Summer/Emma can barely get screen time and they are more of an asset to their division than Lana is

          • Super Mateo

            Maryse has chosen not to wrestle. She made her own decision, which she has the right to. That is NOT the same situation as what is happening with Alicia, Summer, Emma, etc. who want to get in the ring, but aren’t getting the opportunity.

    • C Mack

      I’m lowkey more excited for LHHH too lol. My favorite out of all of them.

      • MK126

        Its sad that scripted reality tv is more of a priority to me than wrestling is

  • #Hooligan ?
    • GOD STRATUS•

      Alexa Flair

  • I was hoping for something with Noam and Alicia since they broke up on 205 Live last week. Some revenge from Alicia would be nice.

  • A One of a Kind Collectible

    Said it last night and I’ll say it again, Raw has failed to reinvent itself post draft. SD has still changed the division’s entire story, it has taken an overbooked Charlotte and made her more realistic, whilst still maintaining her as a constant threat. They still only use the same four women and exclude the rest. Alexa’s booking as a champ is so boring, she is a great worker but even she can’t save this flop reign.

    Charlotte’s booking was at least entertaining to begin with, like her iconic feud with Sasha that was worth tuning in for, Sasha vs Alexa could have been amazing, but creative has dropped the ball AGAIN.

  • DivaLicious?

    Boring??? I just know Sasha banks is gonna beat boring ass cringeworthy on the mic bayley next week. Go on to beat Alexa at summerslam hopefully turn heel after????? Alexa bliss ain’t been doing nothing with the belt since winning it. They need to give Alexa a angel where she is forced off tv like a ankle injury so she can go back to the WWE proformace center and work on her ring ability.

    I still think Emma is in the dog house because of that stupid “Emmalina gimmick” she didn’t wanna do. *which got Lana nowhere may I add. I believe she is gonna get more punishment after those tweets. But what more can you do WWE. You already treating her like shit.??

    Mickie James????? What is WWE doing with this poor thing. I never would have thought I would see a veteran like Mickie wrestling on Main Event?She should just go back home and take care of her kids.

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      Well I don’t think Sasha would because WWE is plannjng a Fatal 4-way I expect Alexa and Nia to get involved to set up that match

  • wwepassion

    So lazy, just give them more promos and stop using the same girls over and over. Haven’t you learned from the last time? Why can’t everyone fight to be number one contender? Raw is just being raw I guess, lack of effort.

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      They’re using the same broing format all the time it just gets so tiring idk why I still even try to watch RAW anymore

      • wwepassion

        Me either, they’ll never change.

  • Don ?

    For me the Belly-to-Bayley always looks better on smaller women like Bliss and Banks.

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    I’m already expecting Alexa interference next week because she doesn’t want to fight Bayley or Sasha. Or Nia Jax doing an interference mid match and attacking both. It’s boring because we can predict it. Hope RAW does it differently. The match was ok, the progression was ok but I’m actually tired of seeing Sasha always getting the upper hand over Nia. It makes little to no sense.

  • So is Nia’s motivation for helping Alexa that Alexa told her one day she will get a title shot? Are they basically fleshing out the reason Mickie returned to Smackdown, but with Nia instead and actually giving it more motive? I don’t mind seeing Alexa, Bayley, Nia, and Sasha every week, but can they actually be given something with substance? And can we not make a second feud happen with the other four women who are on Raw?

  • Organization XIII

    I was only able to catch the segment last night & this is literally a repeat of Bayley & Sasha’s encounter when Charlotte was here. I know we get repetitive storylines but sheesh…it hasn’t even been a year & they have Bayley & Sasha once again fighting each other to determine the “true” #1 contender? smh It’s sad that even though Charlotte has left Raw the women are in the same exact position they were in while Charlotte was champ. The shake up was supposed to feel refreshing & it feels like we’re in a constant loop. Just with a new champion

  • And what is going on with Nia? Did she have a stroke or something? I thought she was stoic and no nonsense, not the one to come back and yell: “NERD!” -_-‘

    • She has the most inconsistent booking on the roster. She’s anything but a monster at this point. Tamina looks more like a threat.

      • I don’t think Tamina had been booked that much better though, she has just been turning it out and looking like a solid veteran in the ring.

        I’m still confused about the Lana thing and think she should be more than a bodyguard.

  • Rodney Holston

    Had such high hopes for Alexa and Sasha’s feud but it AJ/Paige’d the hell outta me.

    • At least in the AJ/Paige feud, both women could actually hold their own in the ring. Alexa is awful.

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        AJ wasn’t that good. I don’t get these people acting like she could wrestle. She was very botchy.

        • GOD STRATUS•

          ??

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          She could wrestle. She wasn’t botchy at all. She may was sloppy in her last return but there wasnt many noticeable botches. And at least with AJ, she could actually sell her opponents moves by taking bumps. The one who’s botchy is Paige but she’s still a decent worker.

          • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

            AJ has always been sloppy. Everyone can have their opinions about it. Most people got to be hardcore fans because of the storyline and character she played but honestly she wasn’t all that in the ring. Not hating on her at all, she was fun to watch.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            How was she always sloppy? Did you see her when she wrestled as a babyface or when she first turned as heel? She wasn’t the best but she was good. Most people overrated her though because her character was featured heavily at the time.

          • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

            I saw all of her career, have been watching wrestling forever already, since late 90’s. I’m not saying she was the wrost wrestler ever, but clearly not that good and very sloppy.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            We’ll have to agree to disagree then. I don’t see where she was sloppy. Maybe in her last two returns but that’s about it.

        • CuCelchy

          No she wasn’t.

      • CuCelchy

        Lol

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    I don’t get it. I really don’t get it. GBAF proved that Alexa Bliss vs Sasha Banks was the feud to go with for SummerSlam as the story is just too easy to write and plus, the dynamic between the two has been fantastic so far yet they decided to change their route and go all in with this Fatal 4 Way…

    Also, I am starting to believe that Sasha’s greatness on the Raw Talk really has nothing to do with creative directing anything or that Vince simply never approved it… with rumors of Vince not being a fan of the format of Talking Smack and the lack of follow-up to this “personal story” between Sasha and Alexa, I feel like this was never really the goal here… Or it’s just Vince being Vince and changing his mind all the time.

    In terms of building a F4W, this was fine but at the end of the day, this is not the best thing to do. Plus, this is just a repeat of WM without Charlotte, be original!
    (No Emma/Dana follow-up, boo!)

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    One positive I had was Bayley’s agression in the ring. She was much more aggressive here and that was nice to see. She’s trying news things clearly because she’s totally aware of things not working (even tho she may be harder than she should be on herself since WWE is the one to blame for her “failing” mostly).

  • conan_kun

    They should have move Emma to Smackdown. On Smackdown, even Lana and Tamina are being put into contender and title matches, Raw only cares about Sasha, Bayley, Alexa and Nia while other women are remained on the shelf. You can say SDL throwing all woman into one segment is a lazy way, but at least all SDL women are used and more relevant than half of the current Raw women.

    If you said Emma is injury-prone, but remember Tamina suffered 2 serious injuries which keep her out of action for around 1 year each, now she features prominently on Smackdown. Naomi suffered injuries 3 times within a year, now she’s SD women champ. If Naomi is drafted to Raw since brand split, she will definitely be on the same spot as Emma, Dana and Mickie now on Raw, let alone the title run.

    • A?.

      This! And not only Tamina, but a lot of the top stars have been injured in the past but they stay quiet about it.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      I think Naomi will basically be like what she’s been doing the past 6 years and that’s being a contender for the title but losing every time if she’s on RAW.

  • Aye Mate

    RAW continues to be a place of creative constipation, where even charismatic performers such as Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks cannot save how uninspired their settings are on the red brand. Once again you have four stellar talents that could easily substantiate two noteworthy women’s programs and for yet another week we get predictable, by-the-numbers booking which does little to advance things.

    On a positive note, Alexa Bliss and Bayley acquitted themselves of that awful Extreme Rules match here. For all the damage done to both women from a creative standpoint, they performed well in trying to portray a story here.

  • Robann

    Quick question, is Talking Smack AND Raw Talk cancelled, or just Talking Smack? If it’s the latter, then we know how Vince is rolling when it comes to his “baby”, even if SDL and just all around better. Talking Smack was innovative, it went off script and it had people talking. I actually looked forward to watching the ENTIRE segment each week, and not just the womens segments (unlike Raw Talk).

    • Hoooshi

      Weekly Talking Smack is canceled, it will be only after PPVs like Raw Talk is now.

      • Robann

        Ah, I see. I still disagree with that decision, but hey.

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      Talking Smack was only canceled as a weekly show it still will air after PPV’s tho

  • conan_kun

    Another adorable Bayley’s moment is made
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/50acc3175fcd373328c77483c8cd49a72443a5564ee6c2e62cae63225d2b7b98.gif

    Can Bayley add another finisher since top stars usually have more than 1 possible finisher, like Taker’s Chokeslam, Tombstone Piledriver, Last Ride & Hell Gate, Cena’s AA & STF, AJ’s Styles Clash, Phenomenal Forearm and Calf Crusher. At least 1 finisher for them will be more unpredictable to win the match, you never know how they win.

    • THE ROSE PLANT!!!!!!!!!! Haven’t seen that move in years!

  • GOD STRATUS•

    That’s like the worst taken b2b ever … It’s like im watching kids wrestle or something… Sasha brought the fire per usual

  • Ryan Stratus

    Things would really pick up if WWE gave Mickie James the title to tie Trishes record. Trish came back as a heel to fued with Mickie at wrestle mania, only to put Mickie over again bc WWE has buried her! Hell!!! Bring Lita in. WWE has completely buried this girl… I miss Mickie on my TV.

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Trish should come back to put over Sasha …then Mickie can beat Sasha for her 7th ending in a Sasha vs Mickie career vs title mania match … That’s why Mickies back to give one of the horses her seat

      • Ryan Stratus

        I figured that’s why she’s back after her non stop losing streak but Sasha doesn’t deserve to dominate the likes of Trish Stratus. I wouldn’t even mention them in the same sentence..

        • GOD STRATUS•

          She doesn’t but as a heel she does… Then again Sasha’s the MOST deserving of the rub. Trish was great cos she worked well with everyone and showed fire for the business. Sasha IS the same however Trish only wants to come back as BITCH Stratus so a Babyface Sasha is literally the best forseeable Babyface on the roster to go over Trish as this generations new her.

          • Ryan Stratus

            Yeah I heard the interview! Heel Trish would be epic, but if Trish had to fued with any one of these women id personally want it to be Alexa. Can you imagine a Heel Alexa Vs Heel Trish. Alexa shows so many shades of Trish. But if Trish had to put a baby face over id want a debuting baby face. Someone fresh! Maybe someone from the MYC that WWE wants to bring over to the main roster.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            No thanks and no thanks we want a EPIC match and Trish has praised Sasha to the moon…. Alexa …. Not so much

          • Ryan Stratus

            Why would you want to bring the greatest womens wrestler of all time in to put over someone who is already over with the crowd. If we are talking about the main roster women id see Trish put over the likes of Emma than Sasha Banks. Trish is the reason Emma is a wrestler today and Emma is so underrated. Trish would give Emma that platform. Also trish has praised Charlotte and Bayley to the moon and back also.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Simple bc Sasha’s THE most over woman on either roster is Sasha banks she deserves to get that rub especially after giving rubs to all of the girls you mentioned above and to my point it will solidify our generations new Stratus sorry not sorry that all the women you named are not in considering the spot is reserved for Sasha and don’t take my word for it. When Trish does return Sasha’s resume will speak more than I ever could…

  • Jonny

    Where the hell is Emma! One of the best heels they have being mistreated like she is, awful.

  • Lushluke

    They already done bayley vs Sasha for bum one contender before. Bored of this

  • Allyn

    This is proof that if there is no story line their is no entertainment. You can’t keep doing this raw! The best option was to go with Sasha vs Alexa, but I guess that feud got too real since it was based on actual events. I’ve given up on raw, they stay disappointing week after week. It’s always one step forward and two steps back. They need a side feud and a title feud not just one or the other. Idk what it’s going to take for them to realize that, if raw is supposed to be the A show then why are they constantly coming up second when it comes to content quality……

  • Nia’s random alliance with Alexa isn’t doing her character any favors tbh. I just hope that Alexa loses the title at SummerSlam.

    • Randall

      Regardless if she does lose it’s not like Raw is going to get any better honestly. They don’t know how to write for the women. Alexa’s and Bayley’s title runs could have been much better.

      • I doubt it (especially in Bayley’s case). Bayley’s title reign only happened so the writers would have an excuse to have Charlogeddon written off RAW. Because let’s be honest; they weren’t going to do much with her after she hit 16 PPV wins because they don’t want her to surpass her dad.

  • MK126

    In more important news Taylor Wilde was apparently supposed to be in the MYC but an injury kept her out of it… *le sigh*

  • Kvngbalor

    The Raw women’s division is in shambles and im tired of trying to remain positive and optimistic it feels like the divas era and back when Paige AJ Brie & Nikki was the main focus of the division and everyone else was just there im tired of Alexa & Nia already and we’re all over Sasha & Bayley the teased betrayel and tension is gone and it’s just no longer interesting Alexa does the bare minimum Nia matches u can call every spot before she hits it sad Emma should be getting pushed where is Micjie what did Dana and Emma talk about …. Smh Raw is just ughh

  • Vito

    i hope sasha wins. i love her and alexa’s chemistry and want to see it more

  • Kvngbalor

    Off topic fuck Vince McMahon & Kevin Dunn apparently their upset with HHH over Mae Young Classic they feel non of the women were hot enough to be in a WWE ring non of them met WWE standard of beauty and most was given makeovers and that it’s there probably will be no signings cuz Vince feel they just don’t have the look no names were mentioned but if u saw the parade and pics u can see who WWE had layered in make up Tessa, Toni, Mercedes, Jazzy, just to name a few Tessa & Toni had on so much make up i didn’t recognize them even tho i knew it was them …. This is sad Vince is a old dirty bastard

    • Izzy4lw

      That’s ridiculous- Candice and Toni have the WWE look, along with a few others. Kevin Dunn and Vince need to retire and go marinate in a swamp for the rest of their lives.

      • Kvngbalor

        Thank you i was watching the parade and i swear i screamed what did Toni do to her face why so much make up anyone who thinks she’s ugly is blind i won’t be shocked to hear some of these girls shoot or speak out on how they were treated or felt after the classics

    • Aye Mate

      Unsurprising from a tandem who only employed Gail Kim, one of the best pure bred wrestlers on US soil, after discovering that men watch Asian porn.

      This level of misogyny isn’t exclusive to fossil brained skid marks like McMahon and Dunn. There are many people within the IWC, not least the more immature cretins on here, who denigrate any woman regardless of their talent if they don’t subscribe to a certain standard of commercialised beauty. Look no further than the homophobic slurs Ruby Riot was met with upon her signing.

      Wrestling, as in the actual art of wrestling and its storytelling pull, defines sports entertainment. Not the other way round. You cannot get away with chucking out a supermodel into a ring and thinking beauty will distract or compensate for inexperience. Wrestling audiences expect more. Get over it.

      And as far as the women in the tourney go, they have at least 10 women who are already insanely marketable in the same vein of Banks or Bayley. Vince McMahon should take a perennial seat on the psychiatrist’s sofa and work through whatever it is in his id which dictates his brain such ways.

      Oh, and Kevin Dunn? When you have a face that looks like a swollen ankle and front teeth which could safely rock climb you have zero business stereotyping the worth of women in relation to their external appeal. Go ?? Fuck ?? Yo’self ??

      • Izzy4lw

        ” When you have a face that looks like a swollen ankle and front teeth which could safely rock climb”

        I. AM. DEAD.

        • Aye Mate

          Imagine the horror, you’re a female working for WWE; you’re huckled indignantly into the office one day, to be told in none too subtle terms that your services are not wanted because some rancid ogre who resembles the consequences of generational inbreeding has deemed you too unattractive.

          Fuck. That.

          • Bryskers

            Isn’t Kevin Dunn also the one who didn’t want to give Becky any promo time because he didn’t like her accent?

            Fuck that guy.

          • Aye Mate

            The word is that Kevin Dunn has delusions of grandeur which include believing he can achieve an Emmy through his WWE work. Which shows how painfully out of touch he is with the product – wrestling isn’t a regular episodic TV show which relies heavily on narrative and editing, it’s athletic theatre.

          • Aye Mate

            Also, yes, Dunn doesn’t like Becky. She’s easily one of their best promos but go figure.

    • Bryskers

      Eh, ultimately, I wouldn’t be surprised if that were true, but I would take this kind of news with a pinch of salt, as it is classic dirt-sheet ‘reports’. I’ve seen this rumor going around for a few days but I’ve never seen any sources. Is it Meltzer?

      Also, I’m not sure VKM knew what was going on at FS at the moment. I don’t think he’s even minimally involved. I may be wrong.

      As for the make-up thing you mentioned, I wouldn’t see to much into it : it’s routine for WWE workers, especially women. They are on TV after all.

      • Kvngbalor

        Everything is ran past Vince ultimately esp something like this i don’t read dirt sheets it’s been on several wrestling news sites that’s pretty respectable

    • Joseph

      Its Kevin Dunn then Vince.

    • A?.

      All the girls in that tournament are extremely beautiful except for Shayna.

      • Kvngbalor

        That’s why i don’t get it

        • perceval

          Shayna has friends, and not just Ronda. Nikki may be using some influence.

      • C Mack

        ????Shaded tf outta Shayna. She is hurt tho.

    • Don ?

      I can’t say I’m surprised.

    • Super Mateo

      I refuse to believe this report until a valid source says it. That said, with Kevin Dunn’s history, I wouldn’t be surprised by it, either.

  • John Finnie

    I maybe blind but i can really see a Bayley heel turn she may lose next week then snap on Sasha. Making it a 3 way @ SS

    • Izzy4lw

      Honestly I’d prefer Bayley as a heel and Sasha as the top face. But Bayley should be a delusional heel who cheats to win or who snaps and just starts beating the crap out of people, but who still thinks the fans love her and still tries to interact with them as a face or something.

      • Yes! Revert to the more childlike Bayley character, but be a heel.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        ??

      • Joseph

        She isn’t turning.

        • Izzy4lw

          I know she isn’t, but it doesn’t mean she shouldn’t!

          • Joseph

            If you heard her on Austin podcast you will understand why she won’t.

          • Izzy4lw

            I’ll have to catch it. I just feel like her face character stumbled a lot, so it’d be nice to see her have a character revamp and resurgence

      • John Finnie

        Yeah a kinda crazy MJ & Mickie could even join in the cray cray as only MJ can

  • Exotic

    ok we can easily have Summer join forces with Emma against Mickie/Dana
    or we can have Dana turn on Mickie to reunite with Emma and then have Paige return to even the odds.
    WHY is it so difficult for Raw writers to be creative once in a while.

    Sasha vs Alexa rivalry could have been beast, but now I’m over it, OVER EVERYTHING.

    • Izzy4lw

      Honestly, and this may not be the best decision as champ, but Nia should win the title at SS- then she should destroy Alexa in a title rematch on Raw, the week after she can beat Bayley 1:1 for the title at Raw and start up a Rivalry with Sasha for the title lasting until the next PPV where Nia goes over her as well, then they can start a legitimate program with Mickie James, billing her as the woman who’s made the a career out of beating the unbeatable (they can have Promo’s showing her WM win over Trish after a 1 year reign, her being the woman who finally ended the reign of the Glamazon, etc. etc.) Culminating in a Mickie victory to tie the record with Trish.

      Ahhh, Armchair booking.

      • I would love for this to happen! More than anyone on Raw I actually want Mickie pushed to the top! I would love for Mickie to be champ if Asuka comes to Raw because I think they could have a really great feud.

        • Izzy4lw

          YES! then Mickie could defend her title against Asuka on their first PPV, further cementing her legacy as the Achilles heel to every dominant woman WWE has had in the last 3 eras

          • Her chemistry with Asuka was superb too! Wanted this for Smackdown honestly though

      • MK126

        The sad thing was they had started the Mickie vs Nia feud when Mickie and Alexa went to RAW and Nia attacked Mickie from behind. Simple things like this can brew and make a solid feud that didn’t even need the title AND make Nia look like the monster shes supposed to be since Mickie’s selling is always A1!

    • perceval

      They’d have to convince Paige to get out of her current situation and into rehab, first.

  • Danny?

    Oh wow, I legit have nothing positive to say. This shit is getting old real fast.

    • Izzy4lw

      Positive…..

      It wasn’t a tag team match?

      • Danny?

        True it could’ve been worse but it’s a match we’ve seen so many times recently considering they were feuding about a month ago.

        • Izzy4lw

          oh I’d be super happy with a different combo – Emma/Sasha, Bayley/Alicia, Mickie/Nia…. anything new at this point would be appreciated

          • Danny?

            It’s exactly what is needed because right now we are in the same position we were in the build up to WresleMania just with Alexa instead of Charlotte. We all know that Emma/Sasha and Mickie/Nia have the ability to make fantastic feuds and Bayley/Alicia could surprise us as well.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            Even if they do give us something new, they’d literally give us 2-3 mins and wish it never happened. Like give these girls time.

  • 3???????

    I love Sasha , but I need Emma to get pushed

    • Izzy4lw

      tbh Sasha isn’t why Emma isn’t being pushed – Emma is the #3 heel behind Nia and Alexa. Our girl Emma needs to take one of the top 2 heel spots to get her time, so she’s gonna have to start going for the knees backstage because it’s a crime that shes being sidelined.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    I’m confused…
    “Regarding plans for the RAW Women’s Title at WWE SummerSlam, Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the title will no longer be defended in a Fatal 4 Way. No word yet on who Alexa Bliss will defend against but it looks to be a singles match. There have been rumors of Bliss vs. Nia Jax happening.” http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2017/0718/628247/raw-women-title-summerslam-note/

    • Danny?

      Tag match? Could you imagine lol

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Oh no! Lol

        • Danny?

          I wouldn’t put it past them

      • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

        Lmaooo
        Instead of two title matches we get 1 tag match between the raw champ and her #1 contender and the SDL champ and her #1 contender.
        XD

        • Danny?

          LMAO I was meaning Sasha & Bayley VS Nia & Alexa but that match you mentioned would take the cake. Shades of Elimination Chamber 2010 LayCool VS Gail & Maryse lol

          • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

            Hahhaha yeah it takes home the cake and the entire bakery xD
            That’s the match my comment was inspired by.
            I remember Vicky Guerrero like “in recent weeks the Raw women have been trashing the Smackdown women.” Something like that.

    • Bryskers

      Sasha is the only logical option at this point, after what they’ve pulled at GBOF.

      Needless to say, Bliss vs Nia would be … oh lord!

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Very much.

      • Aye Mate

        There isn’t a promo in the world which could cover up the worst case scenario match between Bliss and Jax. The naked truth, whether you like it or not.

    • Izzy4lw

      “Tonight on WWE Summerslam, we will have a 7 women summer spectacular bikini battle royal!”

      Could you imagine?

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        I erased these of my mind for good already lol

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        I would prefer this than what they do now. Fatal 4 way elimination matches or 6 pack challenges for everything.

      • Gavin

        I’m praying to Diva God. Sasha would lose her mind.

  • Victoria&Melina19

    Raw is just boring, the same thing happening again. Just with now Alexa replacing Charlotte. As I knew from the shakeup

    But i do like how Bayley was aggressive in the ring and tbh the match was good. Just things need to change up, I’m not buying the whole Nia teaming with Alexa then the next minute stepping up to her and wanting a title match. Also the Bayley and Sasha saga it’s gotten old because WWE decided to drag it out.

    I was looking forward to Alexa vs Sasha but if the rumours are true that it will be a fatal four way, then atleast it won’t be Alexa vs nia.
    I wanna see different match ups and storylines. I wanna see Mickie, Alicia and Emma who I completely agree with what she was saying on Twitter.

    So when Summer coming back?

  • Nathan

    If they are going to do the 4 way between Alexa, Sasha, Nia & Bayley I hope they use it to start the Bayley vs Sasha fued. I’d have Alexa get taken out Nia uses her finisher on Bayley, Sasha takes out Nia and then gets the 3 on Bayley…. after the match Bayleys a little mad with Sasha but they hug…. And Bayley does her Bayley to belly on Sasha…. I think the fued would be more interesting with Bayley as the heel…. plus she needs something different.

  • Diva_Fan

    I really am getting tired of seeing the same 4 Women on RAW . I don’t know why RAW struggle so much to use most of there Women on a 3 hour show ! There’s story lingering between Emma/Dana that could be easily explored and developed but they just chose to ignore it !

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    This was a disappointing Raw for the women. Kinda sad that all we got was ONE MATCH. There are like 8 active women and all we could get was one match?! I bought tickets to Raw for the 31st and I really hope it doesn’t suck like last night.

    • PoisonFelino#Watermelondrea

      Oh my I’m rooting for you.

  • GOD STRATUS•

    I have a feeling all of this is setting up Sasha vs bayley til mania. Don’t ask me why but it’s clear Alexa’s a placeholder for the next champion Nia’s getting the screen time she begged for & it seems management is trying to see whose better at carrying the division between Sasha and bayely. It’s just weird. Trying to rationalize this booking when it could be so easy is just …. Covfefe

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    I’m so over the Booking of Raw. I’m tired of the same four women doing the same thing week in and week out. I’m pretty sure there’s like four other women who are active that can use some focus. I also believe there’s two women who aren’t active but is ready to make a comeback. Although some may argue with Smackdown on some things but to me the one thing that get right is weekly character development for all women. Raw totally feels with that. Even with the four women we see all the time. #OverItAll

  • C Mack

    I don’t like Bayley anymore. I’ve come to that conclusion after being in denial for so long. She’s boring and I’d much rather root for Sasha/Becky type babyfaces than Bay.

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Nia was sooo bad in the fallout vid…. Bayely vs Sasha 4 should be legit tho can’t lie. Gonna up the bar

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      I don’t think they will go all out. Both of them want the next big match to be special, I’m sure so they likely won’t do as much as they could but they will still do good.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        The little that they WILL give us might seem more than what it is thanks to our drought in women’s wrestling on the main roster so that will be a plus & something to look fwd to after whatever mess happens @ battleground

      • Winter

        I have the feeling that they are gonna give the girls the main event next week, in that case the match will be awesome. In the commercial they promote Sasha vs Bayley as the big match of the night.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Oh yeah I have seen the promo for next week… Well, we might have a match of the year candidate then…

    If you’re not gonna use Dana let her go back to the P.C. and let her learn. They called her up way too early. Have Summer take over her spot on the main roster.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Dana is good and if you’re replacing her with Summer what’s the point? Summer isn’t that much better than Dana.

      • Joseph

        Dana is younger than Summer by 5 and a half years. Summer can be the jobber while Dana gets to learn back at the P.C. She got called up way too soon.

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Yeah sure. I agree Dana did get called up way too soon. Dana actually has potential.

          • Gavin

            If Dana didn’t go to the main roster, she would have been cut like Devin tbh.

    Raw is boooooring

  • Mr. Giem

    Well, not a lot to say about this episode.

    The match was good for what it was, despite Alexa squashed Bayley some weeks ago the in-ring chemistry is still there and I truly liked this encounter even if it wasn’t their best one.

    What pisses me off is the predictability of RAW… It’s too obvious Nia is going to interfere next week and then Angle will book a Fatal 4 Way for SummerSlam which doesn’t excite me at all. I wish the WWE had the balls to book/continue the one vs one feud between Alexa and Sasha.

    And why can’t the other girls get some TV time? Why can’t they have an interesting storyline on RAW that doesn’t involve the title? It’s a THREE HOUR SHOW!!

    Creative after Mae Young Classic Tournament:

    Yaaay! We are getting Mae Young Classic competitos on RAW! Let’s get her on board!

    A week after:

    Okay fans it’ll be Alexa Bliss vs Bayley vs Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax for next week episode!

  • Dreignz

    What is this ? The booking is tragic. I wanted a good and strong feud between Sasha and Alexa. They’re the best characters on RAW.
    Alexa need to bring back her NXT face moveset, I don’t know what happened to her but she’s just not good in the ring since her main roster debut.

    And what happened to Emma and Dana ?

  • trishlita721

    This is exactly what happened before wrestlemania leading to the fatal 4 way with Bayley vs Sasha only replace Charlotte with Alexa. Everythings just so boring and exhausting its like one week is good then the next week is horrible the momentum with this women’s revolution is never consistent. And its like I always have this feeling of something fresh and exciting is gunna happen but then it doesnt.
    I’m still going to cherish 2000 till 2010 that’s when the real women’s revolution was happening everyone can say what they want about it but even the stipulation matches where fun atleast we had hardcore matches regularly which didn’t just consist of kendo stick action and even the models had a great mix and purpose in the division.

    • Joseph

      Yea but a lot of those matches weren’t any good. They was more bad then good thats why Shimmer and TNA was doing better matches at that time.

      • trishlita721

        There were a lot that were good!!

        • Joseph

          Yea but there was still a lot of bad.

  • KissMyLights #QueenPeyton
  • Edwards1992

    Why is it so hard to debut new women on each roster?

    We need atleast 5 more girls in each roster, so we can different random matchups, instead of recycling only 5.(Each roster has 7 wrestlers)

    WWE has atleast 30+ women in developmental,why is it so hard for 10 women can’t be called up?

    Patience is the key, but damn we’ve been patient for almost 5yrs.

    Lol ok rant over. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/111c05fe3e3af7b217c0eb4300e7a780702328ed404fe599043c5894372e1f3d.gif

    • Joseph

      They are only 5 girls that are most likely are gonna be called up and thats Asuka, Billie, Peyon, Liv and Aliyah.

      • Super Mateo

        And I would argue that Billie, Liv, and Aliyah still aren’t ready. Aliyah doesn’t have any character at all; she’s just a blank space that they keep trying to fill in. They’ve tried several characters on her,m but nothing has stuck yet. Billie still has to prove that she can succeed on her own. Let’s see what she can do without Peyton around to work off of. Liv just needs a reboot. I can’t stand her current gimmick and she’s a face.

        Don’t get me wrong, I would love to see them all come up and do well. Right now, I think only Asuka and Peyton are ready.

        • Gavin

          I thought Billie was doing great on her own before Peyton joined up with her. Don’t get me wrong, I think their friendship is adorable, but this generic Mean Girls shtick has washed out Billie’s original character.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      RAW has 5 more girls that they don’t even use in the women’s division.

      Alicia Fox
      Mickie James
      Dana Brooke
      Emma
      Summer Rae
      and Paige.

      Smackdown also has Nikki Bella returning soon. Maybe even with Brie Bella? Who knows.

  • Joseph

    If the Bella Twins came back but them both of them on one show and have all 4HW on other show. The show with the 4HW would be the work rate show. Bella Twins show would be a mix of all stuff.

  • GEO
  • George

    Why is fucking Bayley in the title picture again? so glad i didn’t watch raw last night, here for Smackdown!

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      *Watches RAW next week even though I complained this week.

      • George

        I only watch the youtube videos for raw

  • Randall

    According to Dave Melzter the Raw women’s title will no longer be a fatal 4 way match. Still no word on who Alexa will be facing at Summerslam…, seriously hope this true because I don’t want to see a fatal 4 way match. I just want good storyline. https://www.google.com/amp/amp.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2017/0718/628247/raw-women-title-summerslam-note/

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    Sasha beats Bayley next week and then at SummerSlam Alexa beats Sasha with Bayley turning heel (that would be a shock and gets People talking) then have Asuka/Ember loser come out to main roster to fight Alexa

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Bayley shouldn’t turn heel. If anything Sasha could lose at SummerSlam and Bayley tries to comfort her the night after but Sasha snaps on her. Asuka can come out to challenge Alexa also. If Asuka wins the RAW Women’s Championship she’s definitely going to be #1 on the PWI list.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        As of now Alexa is going to be PWI #1 hands down

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Yeah her or Asuka will be #1

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Asuka will likely be the one at this point. Her historic reign along with great matches AND massive winning streaking makes her a strong favorite. Both of them are likely to loose their title arround the same time as well.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    If Bayley wins next week we should have Sasha turn on her after the match. But once again, RAW is slacking with storyline development. We had 6 weeks to build a story with Sasha and Alexa but now they’re just stalling time with this. Please just give us the feud we want so we can have a great match at Summerslam.

  • ralfikh

    It seem they still trying to make Sasha vs Bayley happen.
    Im sure we saw enough of them already.
    Just give the spotlight to other womens already.
    Im so ready for fresh faces and fresh feuds.

  • a very enjoyable raw this week

  • Stef’

    RAW’s creative team proved how bad they were in this episode, and everything is now clear, RAW sucks because of them. Period.

    The match was boring, not that they wrestle badly but Alexa/Bayley is a deja-vu from after the shake-up and Nia/Sasha from before WM. They keep on building these 4 just to replay ancient feuds, there is nothing new, nothing exciting in this division, the shake-up brought Alexa but everything is still the same, Bayaley and Sasha keep on getting title opportunities and Nia is awkwardly kept away from the title when it’s clear she is the strongest in one-on-one matches.

    If there is a fatal 4 way, I want Nia to win and Sasha to turn on Bayley, Mickie, Dana and Emma need to be used in the title picture to bring in something new at last ! But at this point I am just affraid they bring up Asuka from NXT and any hope would be shut down for everyone…

  • Super Mateo

    There are only two stories left on Raw with ANY entertainment value to me: Seth and Dean vs. the Miz and Bayley/Sasha vs. Alexa. Nothing else is worth watching.

    They’re giving us Bayley vs. Sasha next week with little build. This was the matchup that made Bayley a superstar. This was the matchup that became the first women’s match to main event a Takeover. This was the matchup that went thirty minutes and included Sasha getting the crowd to turn on her by stealing something off of Izzy’s head. This was the matchup that many felt was a MOTY candidate in Brooklyn. You’re really going to put these two in a random Raw match?

    After all the great things Bayley and Sasha did, I wouldn’t be surprised to see high expectations here. I hate to say it, but I bet we’ll all be disappointed with it. It’ll go just long enough for both women to get some offense in before Nia and Alexa lay them out. I give it 10 minutes maximum and it will be in the first hour, with the Summerslam match announced later in the show. These are my predictions, but I’m just saying not to get your hopes up.
