The “Biggest Party of the Summer” saw Sasha Banks win her fourth RAW Women’s Championship from Alexa Bliss. As the dust settles from SummerSlam, I’m sure we can all expect the cunning “Goddess” of WWE to find her way to try and stay on top of the division. Let’s see what happened on this week’s RAW Redux!

Near the start of the show, we see Emma once again moaning backstage with Dana Brooke. This time, she is over how everyone keeps on talking about Sasha’s title win. She claims that she should have got that opportunity, which Dana agrees with… but she had that opportunity and lost her triple threat qualifier match. Emma turns her attention to Dana’s triple threat and claims that her competition was easier, including Nia Jax. She claims that Nia isn’t the “sharpest tool in the shed” and follows Alexa’s lead.

Unlucky for the Aussie Superstar as Nia Jax is right behind her and has heard anything. She claims that she will change #GiveEmmaAChance to #GiveEmmaCPR after their match.

As expected, Nia makes quick work of Emma in their match. Emma does start out the blocks quickly and tries to get in as much offence as she can, but it’s not enough to cause any damage as Nia powers through. The finish comes with Nia hitting a Samoan Drop on Emma to literally squash another of her “chances”.

Throughout the show, we are warned that the new RAW Women’s Champion Sasha Banks will be holding a celebration!

Sasha Banks makes her way to the ring, once again with the Championship around her waist. She takes to the mic to voice her history with Brooklyn, from her big matches with Bayley and Charlotte Flair (to which she throws out a message of Ric Flair wishing him well!). Sasha continues to say that Brooklyn also proved that there is no “Goddess” in WWE and just a “Legit Boss”. She claims that she doesn’t try to talk her way out of Championship defences and doesn’t need Nia Jax to have her back.

This brings out the former Champion, Alexa Bliss who comes out to question if Sasha really does want to defend her Championship the right way… because she’s never successfully retained the title before. Sasha hits back, claiming that she’s made Alexa run away and tap out during their previous encounters – so she issues her a challenge to have use her rematch clause tonight!

After toying with the idea, Alexa says that she doesn’t want to give the Brooklyn fanboys an Alexa Bliss Celebration and she isn’t in the mood to break Sasha’s heart tonight. Instead, she’s happy to use her rematch clause next week where she’ll show Sasha to be the “Legit Loser”. It looks like the challenge is accepted as Sasha raises her new Championship above her head and Alexa looks on. it will be Banks VS Bliss one more time next week!

Thoughts: As seen from my predictions, I was calling for a Sasha Banks win because I feel we needed a change in the division. Alexa has been a strong Champion, but the heel dynamic going against Sasha and Bayley needed some changing. It would also be a way to revitalise Alexa Bliss, since her character has slowly started to hit a stand still. Seeing her go from a confident Champion back to a conniving challenger should hopefully open up new angles over the next couple weeks.

Also, as I called months ago, Summerslam seemed to signify that the smarks have fully turned on Sasha and Bayley. It’s been terrible booking which has caused this, but now it can really harm the division as a whole if the crowd can’t take two of their most popular women seriously. The RAW women’s division is two-tiered and if the top tier of women are getting the wrong reactions, then that’s only going to trickle down. If the crowds are too busy booing Bayley and cheering Alexa, they won’t even care to react to someone like Emma or Mickie James, as we saw in last week’s match.

Right now, we have a face Champion which opens the picture up for the heels… unless we get my dream Sasha VS Mickie match, but I won’t hold my breath with that one. I’m pretty sure we can gather that Nia Jax is going to be in the title picture somewhere and if it’s as soon as next week then I won’t be surprised. However, right now the dark horse is Emma’s losing streak and the direction that it’s going in. It’s a slow burner program, but it’s definitely catching on so right now all eyes are on the heels of the RAW division.

Do you think Emma should continue this losing streak? Will Nia be getting involved in next week’s match? Do you think next week’s match could be the main event? Voice off in the comments below!

  • I honestly hope Sasha will have a good and long reign where she defends her title against every competitor in the Raw division. Emma, Fox, Dana and Mickie all deserve a chance

  • Last time Emma faced Nia, she at least put up a decent looking fight. Last night’s defeat was not even believable. We all know Emma is better than that. I’m annoyed they never brought up Emma getting cheated out of that pin on Foxy. It was totally a 3-count but whatevz

  • Womensor

    Please WWE, give Emma a chance. She is good in the mic and in the ring.

  • Radic

    Hopefully that whole Emma squashing and belittling was a sign that she’s SmackDown or even NXT bound. The girl deserves SO MUCH MORE than she’s getting, it’s not even funny at this point.

    Thought I have to say, that GiveEmmaCPR line was pure brilliance.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Lol. What a sad show.

  • Nathan

    Dana looked really good. Liked the back stage segment overall, I would have liked the match between Emma and Nia to go on abit longer but I’m not going to complain. I really do think this is leading somewhere for Emma. Liked the little shout out for Ric but the Sasha&Alexa promo felt a little awkward to me.

  • Miguel

    RAW is directionless. We have a face champion but we don’t have any strong heel contenders outside of Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss. The five feets of fury will be going for the belt until No Mercy but then that’s it for her. Then is Nia Jax cashing the belt and after her who will step up? Emma? Her loosing streak is actually making her look like a joke because instead of bulding a character that is growing frustrated, she’s just there looking stupid.

    I see RAW’s division as weak. We don’t need to see all the women each week but at least have consistent booking. Have all of them tell a story.

  • Rocky1990

    I actually really like what they’re doing with Emma…all of his frustration is probably gonna fall on Sasha, at least that’s what I’m hoping

    • Winter

      My god don’t scare me lol. We all know what happens when Emma is furious, poor Sasha.

  • Tnn Crs

    I don’t know why but I see Nia turning face in few weeks…

  • Hoooshi

    I just don’t see how this losing streak is supposed to help Emma. She’s a heel, we’re not supposed to feel sorry for her, and I don’t see signs of her turning face, so what’s the point? Tbh I was never much of her fan nor do I connect with her current gimmick, she’s just boring to me, but I still want her to challenge Sasha so we can move from the same four we’ve seen since forever. Just give me something different WWE!!!

    • It would be better if she had long matches and came up short each time. These squashes don’t do her any justice. Why would she get a chance every week if she can’t survive more than a minute in the ring?

      • Hoooshi

        This is exactly why I can’t see the point of this whole thing. But if she’s a heel then why can’t she just go there and attack Sasha? Hijack a title match and say no one is getting any more chances until she gets hers? This seems more backstage politics than an actual storyline.

        • I could see it too because like i said the least they could do is let her have competitive matches and not this. Looks like a punishment but let’s hope it’s a story.

    • ???

      Me too like .. how it’s going to help her ? It’ll only let her lose her momentum!

      My guess for WWE’s movement is that they put Emma in those squash matches to see if big number of people complained about that .. or see how the crowd react to her , so they can consider if they suppose to push her or not .. STILL DAMN STUPID WAY FROM WWE!

      I mean how the crowd suppose to react to her when she barely gets time ?

      I just can’t.

    • conan_kun

      It’s more alike WWE is punished Emma for running her mouth on twitter like they did to Baron Corbin.

  • Dylan Gutierrez

    They have Dana and Emma in a backstage segment despite having teased some sort of reunion. Wouldn’t it have been better to align these two by having Dana interfere and help Emma?

  • Raw is pretty much the house of frustration and disappointment.
    Nothing goes right, the faces get booed while the heels get cheered, the women only got like 10 minuts out of the entire show ( are we back in 2012 ?).
    And that line from Alexa ” You are the legit loser” was so easy and dumb.
    They always shove the same girls down our throats with terrible booking which is why the likes of Bayley ( with all their talent ) get hated. You have a roster full of variety, just use it already ! Who doesn’t want to see Mickie James or Emma shine ??
    Now I’ll just say that Raw bookers are the only ones to be blamed !

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      Legit loser was an easy one but it actually worked for me simply because the lead in was talking about how Sasha has lost every time she has defended the title. Obviously setting up for her to break that curse too.

  • I’ll say it for the millionth time, Nia’s booking is a fucking mess. She squashes wrestlers within a minute and the next time she’s tapping out. She wins everything BUT when it matters. I’m beyond over it.

    I wish they’d incorporate a story between Dana and Emma for once instead of having them chat backstage for no reason every 3 weeks. Emma also needs GOOD booking if they want her to challenge in the future. I understand this story but losing in one minute is not the way to go.

  • Sasha and Alexa got nothing to work with and Sasha’s “feel good moment” looked even worse in front of that ugly crowd.

    But I’m glad they rushed the rematch and I hope it ends next week, so they’ll have 3 weeks to find Sasha a new challenger. Well I hope they do, because I’m not here for another Alexa and Sasha match on the PPV.

    • George

      Next challnejoursss Alexa (again) > next Nia > Bayley’s back (wins) repeat with hayley

      • A?.

        Exactly.

    • jxs_

      Lol, their matches have been watchable atleast. I’m not here for another Alexa/Bayley match.

    • Maddox

      Nia Jax is next challenger

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    I don’t get it. Emma is getting attention, she is involved in an angle that is all about her which is (or at least, from what it seems like) leading to something yet, it’s still ENTIRELY wrong.

    I am loving Emma at the moment. For two weeks straight, she had a backstage segment leading to a match where she was able to display some characater development. She has shown frustration over her lack of opportunities and most importantly, over Sasha Banks who is always getting opportunities over opportunities over “a much deserving Emma” in her mind. At the same time, every time she gets “a chance”, she looses.

    It’s a building process and it’s an ongoing story and the fact that she always mentions Sasha Banks into the mix, just tease a potential feud between the two in the future and possibly right after Sasha’s story with Alexa is over.

    • A?.

      I think you’re just too naive, I might be wrong. I also thought this was heading to a storyline, but it’s more like “Okay fans can shut up about Emma, we will get her some TV time every week.” And if she keeps complaining all we are going to get is Sasha against Emma on a random Raw show where Sasha will win quickly. It’s pretty obvious that Sasha will go against Nia once she’s over with Alexa, and they’re going to repeat that until Bayley returns.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Reason why I believe it’s heading somewhere is because last week, I had the exact same idea about her having a loosing streak while continuing backstage segments/promos in order for her to build her character in the process and this angle which would eventually lead to her getting into the title scene assuming that Sasha would win the title which she did. Seven days ago, I said that and so far, it seems like the plan so let’s wait and see.

        I may be wrong and It can be me reading into this way too much but for once, I have confidence in it happening or at least that it would lead to a push down the line. Let’s wait and see what happens. ;)

        • I’m curious to know how will this lead to Emma getting a title shot if she keeps losing to Nia though. Not that I don’t like the idea (actually, the idea of Sasha vs Emma is quite tempting), It’s just a weird way to go about it. And I feel like this is just more of a punishement than an actual storyline to build her up.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            I feel this would have been a punishement if she never had a single backstage segment that woeful allow her to develop some kind of character and develop some kind of angle or if she would have been squashed the first time and then she completely disappeared.

            In this case tho, it’s not the first time it happened, last week’s match with Mickie wasn’t a squash which goes against the idea of a punishement as well and she getting time to develop mutile things.

            Now we’ll see what happens and I may be wrong but I am prefer to be optimistic since there are a lot of good signs here. :D

          • The idea of Emma somehow finding herself in the title picture when she can’t get past Nia, who Sasha, the champ, defeated several time is just strange. And i’m not sure that her getting promos where she is made to look like a chump really is a good thing. :/

            We’ll see how it goes! I hope I’m wrong.

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Emma’s going face once Sasha goes heel

  • MK126

    Oh RAW… how are you such a constant disappointment but you’re the “flagship show”? I’m tired of Emma getting squashed. I’m tired of Nia running into her opponent like some big ass bitch. I’m tired of hearing “Its BOSS time” Michael fucking Cole. I’m tired of talented women sitting in catering collecting checks. You literally gave your women <5 minutes on your 3 hour program. What happened to this "revolution" that's supposed to be going on? The only good thing about this episode was Alexa's promo (more cause she actually said more than Sasha that got me interested). Someone FINALLY called out Sasha's inability to successfully defend the title. If they really wanna make Sasha's reign mean something then next week they better show multiple interview clips between both Sasha and Alexa. Ask Sasha how she feels knowing that shes never successfully defended her title. Does she have doubts that she can pull this win off? Ask Alexa if she feels confident knowing that she has the advantage going in cause of Sasha's lack of successful defenses. Make this title match mean something! From there we can build her next feud for the title. Let Emma attack Sasha backstage after her win against Bliss. Let Emma finally get her moment and make her look like a serious title contender… not putting her in squash matches.

  • George

    Can we stop calling ”smarks” people who dislike certain wrestler? like it can’t be everyone’s cup of tea stfu https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/96f8c0872283cbce0c32f797114efedd6882a1ee8371e299b847bd49f3e5a1b9.gif

  • Hated the writing of the Alexa/Sasha segment. While it started well with both seemingly going at it at each other on the mic as they should have from the beggining, making Sasha mention “these people” while being booed was a stupid move from the writers.

    • Winter

      I hope the fans don’t turn fully on Sasha, if that happens the whole division is in peril. Who’s gonna be the babyface? Dana, Mickie and Emma doesn’t get reaction, Bayley is completely dead and Alexa and Nia aren’t gonna work as babyfaces. Hopefully WWE realizes that.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Sasha can create a Babyface while going heel. However the story arc is Sasha becoming delusional and arrogant it actually helps what Brooklyn did this weekend. Now there’s no need to pussy foot and let the slow leak heel bitch Sasha happen. Furthermore there isn’t always an overcoming Babyface if you haven’t noticed. It’s time for another heel year long run on Raw let’s just be thankful Sasha’s momentum is charged … It’s time for the hate and the heat. She’s getting more heat now pre turn than heels all year so I don’t see the problem actually. I think it’s great.

        • Winter

          Yes Sasha as a heel is gold, but I don’t know I think is dangerous.

          • Fearless Nikki

            Sasha needs to turn heel real quick. Her being a face is damaging her character. After her match with alexa next week, she needs to become bad. Maybe that could even lead to a longer title reign.

          • Winter

            She’s the only believable babyface right now.

          • Fearless Nikki

            and look how that turned. People are booing her and I feel so bad for her because she works so hard and doesn’t deserve that. People loved when sasha was heel and i feel like she’s such a good heel. This would give more opportunities for other women too.

          • Winter

            Sasha still has a strong fanbase and there are no more babyfaces on Raw.

          • jxs_

            I honestly wouldn’t get too worked up about Brooklyn’s lukewarm response to her. After all, this is the same crowd that was volleying beach balls during Finn’s match as well.

          • Winter

            When the girl delivered another classic all these idiots are gonna cheer her again, fans are so annoying sometimes.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Could be Brooklyn tho in all fairness. I expect the same tn as far as crowd response goes

      • I don’t think they will. Sasha’s been booed in Brooklyn, but it feels more anecdotal than a general feeling. We’ll see if I’m right once WWE gets out of New York. She still receives great reaction 90% of the time, so I’m not too worried yet. But yeah, if they lose her as a babyface backed up by the crowd, the division will suffer.

        • Winter

          Yeah this is the first time fans booed her, even yesterday she received cheers, that was like a Cena reaction. However I’m convinced that once she begins to give great matches the fans are going to support her again.

    • Miguel

      Being constantly pushed makes everyone hate her. I hope her overly protective fans enjoy that.

      • That’s a false assumption. She wasn’t hated when she defeated Nia to earn the right to face Alexa at Summerslam a week ago. Her overly rabid critics will jump on every occasion they can get to convince themselves that she is “over”.

        • C Mack

          Right. Most crowds turned on Bayley and cheered Sasha. Brooklyn is just being Brooklyn. Sasha will go back to positive reactions next week.

          Brooklyn booing her but she’s given them quality matches for the last three years.

          • jxs_

            “Brooklyn booing her but she’s given them quality matches for the last three years.”

            How quickly those disrespectful people forget that. Smh.

          • Winter

            Based on the amount of great matches this girl has given she’s the best women’s wrestler in wwe history and these idiots dare to boo her.

        • Miguel

          Nobody thinks she’s over but being booed two nights… there is consistency, this just happened to Bayley. Women that are on top usually get hate online or at the arenas. People constantly pushed often see the crowd against them sometime.

          • Two night in the same arena, by the same people though. A strange and messy crowd at that. We’ll have to wait and see what her reactions are once they get out of NY.

  • DivaFactz

    Sasha really has no contenders on RAW for the title and I feel like everyone will be filler feuds till either Asuka or Bayley return.

    Emma: no creditability and been reduce to a jobber as of late.

    Alexa: After SS I don’t want to see these two wrestle each other again. It’s just not entertaining.

    Nia: Gets momentum only to turn around and lose it. Nia is really directionless at this point.

    Dana: not happening

    Mickie: Don’t seem to be 100% committed to wrestling at the moment. More focused on music right now and that explains why WWE not using her.

    Alicia fox: Maybe but definitely would be filler.

    I really want Sasha vs Mickie but I have a feeling we won’t be seeing Mickie get used until she releases that damn album. *sigh*

    • Scarlet Letter

      I think WWE could start working with Alicia. I mean, she’s up there in her years when it comes to her career, and who knows how much longer she has until she’s done. I think bringing her up though maybe winning a battle royal, for number one contender or hell even just for the title, would be a giant push and they could go into this who…retirement storyline where she holds the title for a couple months, and ends up losing the title at a PPV retirement match. Cause i can’t really see them bringing her up for the title and having her defend it successfully also, to regain it. I mean, it’s been a good minute since she held a title (plus her title run was a filler until Melina came back) and it’s very rare we see women who haven’t held the title after a few years, get the title. Natalya being the latest one. I would love Alicia to gain another title as a thankyou for all your years of service, but then have her retire (cause at this point, she’s just extra space atm)

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    When it comes to Alexa vs Sasha, it was short yet effective in a sense even if I wasn’t a fan with some of the material of the promo. Nonethless, It set up a match between the two while raising an interesting point : Sasha’s inability to defend her title successfully.

    With that being said, it opens the door for a potential storyline to work arround. They have two possibilities :
    1) They decide to cut it short by having Sasha proving Alexa wrong directly by beating her clean and therefore, move on to something else, which would be the easy route…
    2) They could have some dirty finish with Alexa winning by DQ or count out next week so they could keep building a story about Sasha not being able retain which could be very interesting. The latter would allow them to have an actual feud with a great narrative with, in the end, Sasha proving her worth to Alexa and everyone doubting her for good.

    I would be for either way, as long as in the end, we move on with Sasha as a champion at No Mercy at most. The division DESESPERATLY NEEDS some fresh feuds/faces.

  • Super Mateo

    -I’m not sure where Emma’s story is going, but it better be going somewhere. The fact that Emma is even on TV with a story is an improvement. I think her TV time will increase. I like that the WWE had her use her Twitter to kick off this story.
    -Yay to a Sasha/Alexa promo! Boo to it being so short. These women deserve a lot better than this. Giving them 5 minutes on a three hour show is just ridiculous. They need to cut the Snoozerweights and give that time to Sasha, Alexa, Emma, and the other women. The women, by far, got the worst booking yesterday. What a shame…

    Great show for the men. Awful show for the women; I want more Sasha vs. Alexa and just a lot more women in general.

    • Scarlet Letter

      I agree that the cruiser-weight division needs to go. They should keep a few of their superstars, and work them up to US and Intercontinental titles, but I don’t think we need an actual cruiser-weights division. There’s no demand for it really.
      That time can go to the women and they can really become something great. Cause just have a 30-40 minute time slot just divided up for the women would be great.
      I honestly think WWE needs to invest in more women, and actually build up on a women’s tag division. We already got Emma and Dana, Nia and Alexa would be a great team. 4 horse women coming together to win the tag titles and then maybe lead to the team breaking up cause one half want the titles but the other half doesn’t want to really share them. Lot of potential for a women’s tag division.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        The CWC division has potential but they don’t even get a chance to get over. Let’s not forget that years ago, WWE Women were used the exact same way as them which resulted in fans not caring. I don’t think it’s right that we ask for it to end when we were in the exact same spot years ago.

        • Scarlet Letter

          I just don’t think there was ever a demand for it to begin with. We basically already had one, without there really being one, with the US title and Intercontinental story lines.
          I see where you’re coming from when it comes to the women were treated the same way years ago. To me that had a lot to do with new writers not knowing how to handle one generation of superstars into another. Trish and Lita just retired, Torrie and Victoria were pretty much out the door. They had these new crop of women that they didn’t know what to do with, so they just stuck them in 5000 tag matches and thought that was enough.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Actually, there was a demand. I remember years ago this occurred, many times, a lot of fans were talking about bringing back the cruiserweight division to give some guys a shot, especially with the emergence of Indy wrestlers. Quite franckly, both CWC division and divas division suffered from a mindset that would go against them. The lack of trust in them when there were very talented individuals.

            You said it was creative for the women’s divison, well I don’t think so. It was higher ups not being willing to push their women, period when they could have had. Now, the same thing is happening with the CWC. Neville has been one of the VERY few getting character development and getting reactions. On top of that, they are isolated from the rest and no big stars are willing to elevate this division. Finn Balor could be there to help as well but since it’s not a priority for Vince and that Balor isn’t interested in it as well…

            CWC could work, but it’s all up to WWE. They are definitely not the one we should take time from. Guys like Paul Heyman should be seen his mic time reduced for example or main eventers who get like 10 minutes more that they need.

  • TabbyK

    Mess at Sasha getting booed. Fans are so fickle.

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      Someone said it was simply because she was from Boston and they were in Brooklyn but they cheered her last year against charlotte……

      • perceval

        They were crapping on Boston’s John Cena, too. They crapped on Alexa, and she’s not even from Boston.

        If you’re wondering why New Yorkers are especially salty about Boston, Google “mlb al east standings”.

        In Boston, Punk got booed for bringing up the Yankees. This sort of thing only works in sports towns, though. In Philadelphia, if you want heel heat, just mention Dallas. In Dallas, however, since it isn’t a sports town, they don’t give a damn if you mention whoever the local teams’ rivals are.

    • Nadia

      She got booed. Than she got cheered. Alexa got cheered than she got booed. I was rolling my eyes at the mixed reaction all night. I can’t wait for them to get out of Brooklyn.

      • Booking 101

        That crowd was a disgrace. That whole beach ball madness was just plain stupid. Brooklyn was trying so hard to cosplay the Raw after Mania crowd that it wasn’t even funny.

        • Nadia

          How you can cheer Miz when he giving an impassined promo about oppurtunity and placement on the card and when he’s in the main event you play with beach balls? They also get a new match with Balor/Jordan and the beach ball was more important. The crowd was trash and was looking to ruin the show. They can fuck off.

            I feel bad for the people on that crowd that were trying to participate in a positive manner and help the show but with the amount of idiots on that arena, it was mission impossible.

            I don’t remember Brooklyn being this bad the last 2 year. Is my memory wrong or this year we had the idiot convention in Barclays?

        It was Brooklyn. Thassit

    • Winter

      It’s hilarious, one year ago she was the most over superstar in all wwe, male or female. Some fans are such idiots.

  • Scarlet Letter

    I think Alexa will be unsuccessful in her rematch, either it be by some offense, because I don’t think it will be a clean win. This will trickle into the next PPV with their feud. I think Sasha will retain her title, and Alexa will start to go into the background for a minute. I think Nia Jax or Emma will be stepping up when it comes to the title, and one of them will win the Raw title from Sasha Banks. I think if Nia wins, they should go into the route of bringing Mickie James up and having her and Nia feud, or the could build something on Nia and Emma. But the way that Nia squashed Emma last night, i think trying to see Emma get clean wins over Nia would be very eye crossing.

  • Can’tGetNo…Stratusfaction

    The Money in the Bank match should have been open to the entire women’s roster and Emma should have won — better yet, Emma should have just gone to SD in the first place.

    That way, even if she lost every week, she could still boast that she had the briefcase. The “ultimate opportunist” persona fits her much more than Carmella.

  • conan_kun

    Next week Sasha vs Alexa may end with No Contest then they go for No DQ stipulation at No Mercy, but I won’t be surprised that they gonna do Sasha vs Alexa in hot potato title switch in the next few months, unless they let Nia win the title from Sasha after Sasha retains and ends her feud against Alexa at No Mercy.

    Alexa is right about Brooklyn fans, they’re playing beach ball instead of watching the talents have a match, WWE should not have to give Brooklyn one more Summerslam week next year

  • Don ?

    If it weren’t for NXT I probably wouldn’t bother watching any of WWE’s programming. Things are so boring on the MR.

    • Hoooshi

      I only keep up with the women’s feuds on all three shows. My male faves won’t be pushed for different reasons and I don’t care about the ones WWE pushes, but even the women’s feuds are getting hard to watch.

      • Don ?

        I do the same. ? I don’t care for the men at all tbh.

    • What’s so special on NXT other than Takeovers? ?

      • Don ?

        I like the atmosphere and women better on NXT than the MR. It’s mainly the underground vibe of NXT that draws me in.

        • I only wish they’d give them storyline and different matches instead of just singles matches! That way we could see more new women on TV!

          • Don ?

            I agree. I’ve sadly become used to it. I feel things will change when Asuka is moved to the MR. Hopefully…

  • Wicked Emma

    Sasha was 100% right about Alexa.

  • GailKimStan

    The crowd can turn their back on Bayley but what i’m not gonna do is sit here and listen them booing Sasha, alright?

    • Winter

      Nobody turns on our queen.

      • GailKimStan

        Hopefully future crowds will be better, i’m not ok with these ungrateful morons booing her out of nowhere

        • Winter

          Yes, however Sasha doesn’t give a shit about that morons.

    • GOD STRATUS•

      I wouldn’t worry about it. That was a Babyface to a heel promo in one swing. Sasha’s legit going heel sooner than we think

      • GailKimStan

        I don’t know at this point, we’ve been saying that for months and it never happened.

        • Winter

          She’s a top seller. In wwe mind… top seller = babyface

  • itsmemario

    Emma did well in her segment. I see them building up to a Sasha feud with her. The promo between bliss and banks was not worth the wait for Sasha’s celebration to be announced 2 hours early. Mickie needs to get her ass back on tv.

  • Victoria&Melina19

    Not surprised that this is it for the woman on Raw. I’m hoping for Emma to go for the title but the way they are handling Emma right now with these squash matches ain’t doing it for me.
    That’s cool Sasha is champ to see some new feeds but I shouldn’t get my hopes up since once the Sasha/Alexa feud is over, Nia might be the next contender.

  • Monkey Tennis

    Meh,

    The post title match confrontation was… blah. It just felt like the very definition of going through the motions.

    And I have no clue why anyone thinks Emma’s current burial is leading to anything of note. That’s like saying Curt Hawkins is heading into a title feud soon.

    • I very rarely agree with what you post, but I think you are right about Emma. ?

    • ThePeaceVibe.

      Emma getting a push I think is more wishful thinking than actually believing it will happen.

  • DivaLicious?

    Nothing really exciting happen last night really. I don’t wanna see Sasha vs Alexa again. Because they don’t flow that well in the ring. I just wanna see summer Rae, Alicia fox, Mickie James get something. I’m tired of the same shit?

    This whole #GiveEmmaAChance I don’t know if this is going anywhere. I think maybe WWE is getting tired of her putting that hashtag in all her tweets. So they are punishing her for it. Plus they still most likely upset about the whole emmalina gimmick. You can’t expect people to get behind her if she gets jobbed out within 1minute in a match. She is trust passing on curt Hawkins territory. I don’t see anything good coming out of this. The crowd just don’t care. Because they know she gonna get jobbed out everytime they see her. she has to get back on Vince good side.

  • Mark?

    I’m tired of these title victory promo’s. I miss the days of queen Trish when she won a title at a PPV and then on Monday was competing and adding to her feud with someone. Why couldn’t it just be simple booking? Emma VS Sasha in a lengthy match, Alexa Bliss comes out with Nia towards the ending, directs traffic and has Nia beat the living crap out of Sasha ending the match in a DQ. Then they double team Sasha and Alexa announces her rematch clause. Simple, easy, entertaining. Why this? Heck, even have injured Bayley come out to try and help Sasha but then she gets DDT’d by Alexa.

  • John Finnie

    Has everyone heard that Dana BROOKES BF died monday night chocked on his food! #RIP
    Emma yet again gets treated like crap Mickie isnt even on & now the rumour is that Nia Jax is winning the title from sasha…

    • Shan

      Oh no. Poor Dana and the guys family.

      • John Finnie

        I know i just read it poor family he was only 26

        • Shan

          I checked it after I saw your post and TMZ apparently verified it. Hurts my heart to hear it so I can’t even begin to understand what she and his family are going through.

    • NoWayHoeSay

      Thought she was with Dolph

      • MK126

        Well his career is dead…

      • John Finnie

        Not for a while now still friends by the look of her twitter

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    How odd was it that Sasha said “she has all these people” , talking about the WWE universe supporting her, while they were booing her? Lol like girl should have put those improv skills to use and skipped that line lol.

    • NoWayHoeSay

      Forcing them to like her. Which they won’t like and will boo her more ?

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        I wonder if it’s from all her recent interviews….. Like the one where she told the fans to shut up basically on her being a better heel than a face lol.

        • wwepassion

          She has an attitude, has become a diva and big headed.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            Or has always been that way and is just now showing it but yea I know that is why I’m wondering if it’s the reason the fans are turning on her.

        • Winter

          Because the fans are annoying sometimes, let’s be honest.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Perhaps she’s going heel ? I dunno ? Please catch my sarcasm

  • Allyn

    i thought Sasha as champ meant that the division would be saved?? NO!!!!!! What was this squash match that we have literally already seen and this mediocre promo all about??? This is why it doesn’t matter who is the champion, as long as the powers that be creative are still running the show we will never get any sort of decent story line and we can just forget about a story outside a title picture while we are at it. Yes Sasha is champ but if this is any indication of how her reign will be why bother giving her the title. Raw is shit and not even Sasha can save it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/88dafce957232a73e3511e079174373b59de2e3f0727e659f3a9a5c01f8219de.gif

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    I’m so glad I changed my mind and decided not to watch raw last night and just keep playing my video game lol because again the women only got 10 minutes or so in a 3 hour show.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    Emma’s silly storyline is gonna end with her being released not a title match loooool.
    I was rooting for her to win as well.
    Sasha needs elocution lessons cus I thought she said “Like her bless” but she actually said “Alexa Bliss”
    And Alexa is right she’s a joke 3x champion, never had a defence and won and I can seriously imagine Alexa backing out next week and winning it back at No Mercy as SHE IS the face of The ppv.

  • Stef’

    Poor Emma… She (very rightfuly) complains on social medias that the same women are always given the same opportunities and the company makes it a gimmick and ridicules her in a losing streak against everyone in the roster.

    Why was she hanging out with Dana by the way ?

    I really can’t see the end of this, plus the crowd doesn’t seem to react positively to her so if the plan is to have her get the title sometime to please the fans… idk

    • C Mack

      They’re going to keep letting Nia squash her until Emma inevitably gets hurt again. They know she’s injury prone, so this TV time against one of the most dangerous workers in the division is not by coincidence

      • Stef’

        Hmm I doubt they are so cynical, when they don’t like someone, they let them rot backstage until the contract breaks.

  • Booking 101

    The weeks go by and the more I believe that this Emma “storyline” is more just the company making fun of her than an actual plot to something better. That squash pretty much confirmed that Emma won’t get near that title probably ever again.

    Sasha and Alexa had a pretty quick but solid interaction. It wasn’t necessary much more to be honest. The rematch is set and I did like that Alexa brought the fact that Sasha hasn’t been able to defend her title ever. It hads another layer of drama to next week.

    All I wish right now is for a better match for next week. You showed out at GBOF, do it again girls :D

  • Nadia

    Sasha needs to retain gainst Alexa next week. Do Nia/Alexa/Sasha at No Mercy. Let Sasha retain and break off into Alexa/Nia. Sasha open challenge the next night: here comes Emma. This shit isn’t hard WWE. I’m tired.

  • Raw was trash last night Nia squashing Emma for what tho? unless this leads to Emma breaking her loosing streak on the champ or in a #1 contenders match, I see no point in this as for Sasha and Alexa their promo was mediocre and more like a back and forth between 5th graders “Legit Loser” she’s done better tonight was a no for me

  • wwepassion

    Waited almost 3 hours for the fall out of Alexa and Sasha for a let down as usual. Sasha was yet again booed no matter if she tried to kiss ass, the Boston excuse people are using is annoying because she’s been cheered there for years, problem is her and Bayley are over pushed and over exposed. This isn’t new.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    The title match next week will either end with Nia interrupting causing a DQ or Sasha winning. Alexa also winning is possible but I don’t think she’ll win. She’s the heel and her being the challenger vs the champion at No Mercy is perfect. It makes sense for her to have no mercy with Sasha so she could get her title back.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    And not at Nia liking Mickie’s shade to Alexa, screaming she must didn’t know that it was shade

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Or maybe she doesn’t and the power in that friendship is with Nia ya know the Rocks cousin. Cos Nia respects and loves working with Sasha and is still cool with bliss. So hey I wouldn’t be surprised

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    People are hilarious. How are you gonna call the horsewomen overpushed and exposed for always getting titles and being in the spotlight but then go on to say Alexa Bliss deserves to win the title back? That makes no sense to me.

    Sasha Banks – 4x Women’s Champion
    Charlotte – 4x Women’s Champion, Divas
    Alexa Bliss – 4x Women’s Champion (what most people want)…

    If they’re overexposed and overpushed then please tell me what Alexa Bliss is? She’s been in the title picture for almost a year now, whether it’s on Raw or Smackdown. Brooklyn is messy, point blank period. They’re cheering Alexa right now but I’m willing to bet next year or the year after when liking Alexa Bliss isn’t “cool” anymore they’ll start booing her. I did like how Alexa clocked Brooklyn last night though but her fans need to stop giving her a pass for things when she’s booked the same as the horsewomen.

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Point proven ! Alexa fans are all blind period if she’s not a hw from nxt idk what is. Furthermore she doesn’t have half the skill and is booked better than two of those HW. Issa mess that she’s given Soo much slack from the fans she can do no wrong after that snoozefest of a reign smh

    • Alexa gets a free pass because she ENDED THE HORSES!!!!!!!!!!

      (nevermind that she got more in her first year that any of the 4HW in theirs.)

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        lmfao exactly!! Now don’t get me wrong it’s pretty obvious the four horses always are in the spotlight but for Bliss fans to completely ignore the fact that she’s always in the spotlight and say she isn’t overexposed either bothers me.

        • I won’t argue on that. But yes, the double-standard is strong on this one. It’s sad to think that, before Sunday, both Sasha and Alexa had the same number of reigns, yet only one of them was generally considered “overpushed”. It says a lot.

    • Wicked Bliss

      I’m a fan and I’m against the idea to make her 4x champion anytime soon.

    • ThePeaceVibe.

      It’s silly to me when people categorize the 4HW as overpushed, getting all the accolades, etc. Becky may have been first SD women’s champ, but they handled her reign like crap and she’s only won 1 title 1 time. I feel like if any of them she is put on the same level as everyone else. As you’ve stated Alexa has more reigns so.. I don’t get their argument either.

      • It’s because the 4HW are not a “real thing”. It’s literally just a nickname. But it didn’t stop people to convince themselves that they were this great evil/threat to the women’s division, without ever taking into account each girls individually. Like you said, Becky was never treated better than most of the girls, and if we’re being honest, Bayley hasn’t been treated that well either. It’s in part why I never take this argument seriously when people start to mention the 4HW as a whole: it barely has a foundation. It’s just in their mind. They believe Sasha and Charlotte were made the stars of their brand because they were a part of the 4HW when it was just because they were the two most over women that people wanted to see at the time. It’s mostly paranoïa tbh. (And it’s also funny that people now are using this argument for Bliss, when they couldn’t hear it when Sasha and Charlotte were at the top, but I disgress.)

  • Rosanna

    If Natalya can win a championship 7 years later so can Alicia! She’s a heel she better step up and start a feud with her and snatch that title. Nattie can do it so can Alicia!

  • Kvngbalor

    This feels like the divas era short promos that fell flat lackluster matches dead crowds title wins that just left you with the meh feeling Sasha & Alexa feud could be straight fire brawls promos where they speak their true feelings not Mean Girl inspired shit this was the feud we wanted and now i don’t want no more after Alexa im sure we’ll get Sasha vs Nia who will win and feud with the returning Bayley who is out to get revenge on the women who injured her … Yawns

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    And can WWE please stop with these “championship celebrations or blisstations”? They’re getting annoying. Come up with something new. The challenger interrupts the celebrations EVERY time.

    • Allyn

      This is raw, something new is not an option

  • A?.

    Oh my gosh! New champion, so fresh and so much change! The feud between Alexa and Sasha will go until No Mercy, since Alexa is on the promo.

    Also, how am I supposed to take Nia seriously when all she can do is squash the catering staff but can’t go against the horses. Lol.

    • ?too litty?

      The new champion thing is sarcasm right?

      • A?.

        Of course

        • ?too litty?

          Okay good. Bc I’m still needing Emma as champion or Foxy.

    • You think Alexa is winning at No Mercy? I would bet so much money that Sasha retains. It’s obvious…

      • A?.

        Never said Alexa is winning, just that their feud will most likely end at No Mercy since Alexa is on the promo.

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Fantastic promo by Sasha. Love the heel tease right before bliss entered … The crowd isn’t turning on Sasha it’s time for her to turn… Such biased ass redux up top we get it y’all don’t Stan for the hw but to try to play them out like this like they’re not essential is horse shit… Anyway nice Emma clip love love love our new champion. Long may she reign

  • ?too litty?
  • Okay Imma just say it…

    – Emma is basically this era’s Jillian Hall

    – Sasha sucks on the mic as a babyface

    – Alexa sucks in the ring in general

    – Nia needs to pick two finishers and stick with them. I’d say the “Jackhammer” and the “Running Senton” once she learns how to safely land.

    • ?too litty?

      I say Nia’s finisher should be the Jax Bomb!

  • Miguel

    Why are fans crying over Sasha getting booed? This is the Bayley threatment. People actually like Alexa Bliss.

  • ThePeaceVibe.

    Unless they do another shakeup Raw looks pretty boring and predictable. We can all wish someone else to get some spotlight but I don’t see it happening. I see Sasha vs Alexa, then Sasha vs Nia, then Bayley returns in the mix. I fear we won’t be seeing anyone but these four in the title picture until next years mania. I would love to see Emma get some shine but at this point I think they are just mocking her. I find it messy Nia can put away Mickie, Dana, and Emma with ease but has trouble with Sasha whose much smaller. I guess a positive if Nia wins the title Emma’s been working with her a lot so maybe that’s when she will get her chance. Unfortunately I don’t see them putting Sasha, Alexa, and Bayley on the backburner for that.

  • ???

    I just don’t get it , why they give Emma time on the show just to make her looks like a joke ?

    They mention her hashtag and let her talk about not getting a chance but in the end she squashed by Nia ? Emma isn’t even a face she’s a heel , they made her look like an underdog but she’s a heel .. how the crowd will be behind her ?? This isn’t going to help her at all

    The problem is , only Emma, Mickie and Sasha who are trully champions materials and complete packages yet Nia and Alexa get all the opportunities.. they can push Alexa and Nia but don’t forget people who are more talented and more deserving like Emma and Mickie ..

  • ???

    Please SDL , save us tonight !!

  • Wow! Was a really boring RAW and I’m im shocl, same thing every week; Bliss Vs Banks, Emma complaining and losing. It’s a joke.

  • Maddox

    The should really turn Alexa face and either Bayley or Sasha heel. Might freshen things up for a while

  • CuCelchy
  • conan_kun

    Sasha broke hometown curse, then Brooklyn PPV curse (she lost in NXT Takeover Brooklyn, Summerslam 2015 and 2016), now she may break the curse of failing to retain her title in her first defense.
