At TLC, we saw Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks and Asuka all come out on top of their encounters, but it was very clear that business was not over for any of their opponents. With attention turning to November’s PPV, Survivor Series, it was only a matter of time until tensions between the rosters started… but no one expected it to happen so soon, so let’s find out what happened on the RAW Redux.

First up, we have a TLC rematch, stemming from Emma’s interview post-match at TLC. She wanted the rematch against RAW newcomer Asuka and tonight she gets another chance to make it ‘all about her’.

Much like their TLC match, it’s Asuka’s sneaky submissions vs. Emma’s straight up aggression. After pretty much being manhandled initially, Emma manages to catch a break when she throws Asuka into the ring post. Emma hits a nice Butterfly Suplex and a stiff lariat which gets her two nearfalls, but Asuka isn’t going to stay down that easily. A missile dropkick from the second rope allows Asuka the change the tide of the match and hits a back fist, a German Suplex and a running hip attack. She only gets a 2 count, but Emma tries to go for a roll up. Instead of kicking out of the pin, Asuka manages to put Emma in the Asuka Lock and just like TLC, Emma is forced to submit one more time. The Empress of Tomorrow remains undefeated and celebrates in the centre of the ring.

Asuka is interviewed following her match, describing how beating Emma twice has been ‘fun’.

Next up, RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss is on her way to the ring following her successful title defence at TLC.

Alexa is quick to gloat about her victory over future Hall of Famer and “leader of the old folks’ home” Mickie James. She says it’s time to put Mickie where she belongs… in the past. Bliss talks about how her new focus Survivor Series and that she’s ready to dismantle crazy cat lady SmackDown Women’s Champion, Natalya. She’s ready to show everyone that there’s still one ‘Goddess of WWE’.

Alexa’s not happy though, she states that she still feels unappreciated and gets no respect. She wants to know where her chants are and why she can’t get that appreciation? Alexa claims it’s because the WWE Universe are jealous of her, so instead she wants to make it easy for them and wants to teach them a chant: “You deserve it!”. Unfortunately, the crowd aren’t as receptive as she wants and seem to be chanting anything but that.

Cue Mickie James’ theme, who makes her way down to the ring without a microphone in hand. Mickie has a smile on her face and shows that she’s not in the mood for talking, as she boots Alexa in the mid-section and hits her Mickie-T! Standing over the fallen Champion, Mickie states “Alexa… you do deserve it!”. Making her statement, Mickie exits the ring and shows that her business with the Champion is not over.

As the screen cuts to backstage, Bayley and Sasha Banks approach RAW General Manager Kurt Angle. Angle mentions that since the Champion VS Champion match takes Alexa out of play, he’s considering one of them to take the lead as the RAW Team Captain. That’s until Alicia Fox interjects herself into the conversation, who claims that she should be Captain since she’s been there the longest. As always, Angle wants them to ‘settle it in the ring’ (not ‘paper, rock, scissors as Alicia suggests’) and so he sets up a triple threat match between Bayley, Sasha Banks and Alicia Fox where the winner will become the RAW Team Captain. Before they head off, Angle pokes a little fun at Fox’s minor botch at TLC where she tried to pin Sasha outside the ring, oh Creative aren’t you so funny…

Match time! As expected, it’s Bayley and Sasha as the faces, working against the newly energised erratic Foxy. She manages to ground both of them with her beautiful Northern Lights Suplexes and generally seems to stay in control of the match, tossing Bayley out the ring and working over Sasha. It’s only when Bayley and Sasha start to get on the same page that they start to out maneuver Foxy, throwing her out the ring several times.

When we come back from the break Alicia has managed to gain control again! Sasha gains some offence, but climbs up to the turnbuckle. Alicia stops her with a couple slaps to Sasha’s face and calls her ‘cute’ as she climbs up to go for a Superplex… until Bayley joins the party and they hit a Tower of Doom spot. Bayley only gets a 2 count on Alicia, but now starts to work on her, hitting a nice hangman neckbreaker through the ropes. Bayley whips her into the corner, but gets booted in her face by Fox! She only gets a 2 count… which causes Alicia to have a tantrum.

Alicia screams, “I don’t wanna play this game!” and slowly exits the ring. She talks over to the bell and starts ringing it herself. Is she ending the match herself? When the referee (who is the same referee she shoved to the floor last week) doesn’t want to end the match, Alicia enters the ring. Sasha pulls the bell off the apron, which distracts Alicia and allows Bayley to roll her up for a pin! Alicia kicks out, but walks right into a Bayley-to-belly! 1.. 2… NO! Sasha breaks up the pinfall!

Bayley doesn’t seem happy that her friend cost her the opportunity at the two start exchanging blows. Bayley gets the upperhand and flips Sasha over with a side slam and she looks ready to hit her finisher… but Alicia creeps up behind Bayley and starts imitating her? She then his her own belly-to-belly suplex (or is that a Foxy-to-Bayley-to-belly?) on Bayley! She tries to go for her Axe Kick on Sasha, but she dodges it and locks in the Banks Statement! Alicia tries to roll to the ropes, but Sasha flips them back into the ring and loses grip of the hold. In that time, Alicia throws Sasha into Bayley and the already hurt Bayley takes the fall as Alicia Fox gets the 3 and is crowned the Captain of Team RAW’s female team! I don’t think anyone was ready for that one and she even goes to kiss the referee!

Think you’ve seen all the women? Well, it’s not over just yet. RAW General Manager Kurt Angle takes to the ring to announce the male competitors for this year’s Survivor Series teams. However, before he can start, SmackDown General Manager Shane McMahon makes his way down to the ring, but he’s got company… of the SmackDown roster! He takes to the mic to warn Angle that RAW is now “Under siege”!

The SmackDown roster takes to the backstage area and among them are Becky Lynch, Tamina, Money in the Bank holder Carmella and SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya. As the roster storm the locker rooms backstage, one of the first groups they cross paths with are Alexa Bliss, Emma and Dana Brooke in the make-up and hair area. All three want nothing to do with the SmackDown women and flee, making Dana Brooke an amazing meme in the process which is this week’s GIF choice.

After raiding and jumping some of the male Superstars, the roster bump into Sasha Banks, Bayley, Alicia Fox and Mickie James. Tamina, Carmella, Becky and Natalya square up to them and a brawl ensues. The SmackDown ladies get the upperhand as the RAW women are left laid out backstage. The Survivor Series battle has well and truly begun!

Thoughts: I have to admit that Survivor Series is one of my favourite times of the year and this siege (even though I don’t condone jump-a-hoes) was an explosive start to it. I’ve been a fan of the brand extension this year, so seeing this as the only real event where the brands go head to head and with so many amazing female talents on both the rosters, it’s a good chance to see some unique combinations.

Couple that with the night’s other shock of the night with Alicia Fox being given the Team captain role. I’m pretty sure 90% of us thought that Foxy would take the pinfall here, heck I didn’t even see her getting a slot on the team if I was honest, but this is a really good chance for her. Alicia’s revival of her character is just what she (and the division needed) for a wildcard competitor on the roster. I don’t know if Nia Jax will be in time for Survivor Series, but right now Alicia can be the unpredictable ex-factor that this match needs.

I was also a massive fan of tonight’s segment with Alexa Bliss and the assumed continuation of her feud with Mickie James. Alexa has really come into her own as a star on the microphone and has been the perfect opponent for Mickie and getting the crowd to rally behind her. Tonight’s promo was funny, got the crowd going and was just overall well delivered. I’m curious to see if Alexa is going to continue the veteran insults with Natalya?

So for the next few weeks, all the focus will be on who makes the teams and RAW is stacked with talent. With Alexa ruled out because of her match, we still Alicia Fox, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Emma, Nia Jax, Mickie James, Asuka and Dana Brooke all available to get a spot. Although, this whole feud and match can be completely pointless if a certain someone’s Undefeated Streak comes into play. I personally feel that Asuka shouldn’t be one one of the teams, but we shall see what happens. Either way, I’ll be tuned in SmackDown to see what they have to say!

Were you happy with the siege angle? Are you looking forward to Survivor Series? Who do you think won’t make the cut? Can you photoshop Dana running onto something hilarious? Send through your thoughts in the comments!

  • Raleex2

    Wow!! Finally Alicia has some sort of a relevant role for a few weeks. I love this!

  • 3???????

    Happy for Alicia , who were the women who ran ???? the way Dana threw that chair and ran ?????

    • Mitch Von Erich

      I want to kno to

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Alexa, Emma, Renee, Dana and makeup lady were the ones running.

  • Michael Max

    RAW is giving me life, Mickie QUEEN James doing that ddt in them heels was life, Alicia’s “Rock, Paper, Scissors” comment and imitation of Bayley was hilarious and Foxy being team captain brings a tear to my eye. Not to mention Dana running for her life like she’s on the latest Scream installation. Overall amazing stuff, love me some RAW right now.

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Dana Brooke !!! Lmao

    • AlexV

      Same I think it’s going to pay out something like this…

      I think they’re continuing the fued so they can keep building Mickie back up to the huge babyface she was, whixh judging by the crowd reactions is already happening! The girl is a natural baby face and she has excellent mic skills and excellent wrestling skills and if you saw her match with Asuka at NXT, you know she can have a hell of a match with Asuka. I think what they’re doing is either have Mickie win the title against Alexa on a soon main event on RAW possibly after Survicor Series(?) and then while Mickie celebrates her 7th title victory which will be a huge deal and emotional moment for her and us her fans, Asuka is going to come out and do her psycho, scary dance on stage while Mickie James raises her title. That would set up their feud and title match for Royal Rumble. Apologize for the run one, im.just extremely excited and grateful they’re continuing the rivalry between the two.

      And I mean although I agree Alexa’s wrestling skills aren’t on par yet, she’s drastically improving and she’s magic on the mic, I dare say better than Trish Stratus or atleast reaching her level quickly at her young age. Basically, Mickie James and Alexa Bliss both are making this feud interesting and fun to watch. I love me some Sasha, Bayley, and Emma, but Mickie is trumping them on all facets right now. She’s just on point in everything she’s doing and I believe WWE has taken notice. She’s making zero mistakes which is fantastic. Mickie James is the ideal candidate to take on Asuka at the Rumble.

      We can still have a women’s royal rumble to open the show. Imagine!? That is something we’ve been asking for a long time! And if they bring in Lita, Trish, Madusa, Molly Holly, Ivory, Madison Rayne, Angelina Love, Gail Kim? I mean I’m dreaming here, but I wouldn’t have ever in a million years expected a women’s hell in a cell nor talk of an Elimination Chamber!? The women are all killing it!! They’re finally getting the opportunities they deserve and I think women like Emma and Dana are in line for their shots in the upcoming months too, they just need to keep working hard as they have.

      Now can we bother Foxy on Twitter for a new theme until she finally acknowledges us?? ANYTHING is better than that worn out Maria Kanellis recycled, crappy generic theme. FOXY deserves her own unique theme. It doesn’t have to be what I’m asking which is Drop Dead Beautiful Instrumental by Brit, though I can see her in my head strutting fiercely to the theme as the RAW captain at Survivor Series! She’s own that and thet es alot of base in it! Let’s atleast ask her to change it guys!

      We’ve done the whole give Divas a chance, which brought on a whole revolution, two new Women’s Championships, no more butterflybelt, serious matches, multiple women’s storylines, Asuka! We collectively did all that because we care and these wonen entertain us guys, girls and gay fanbase. I’m 100% positive we can change her theme song. We just need to throw in suggestions! I’ll start, the rest of you continue so.she can get it changed before Survivor Series. We might get something we don’t like at first, it even Emma’s theme is growing on me.

      My proposed theme.remains the same. I’m. It a huge Britney Spears fan but I like Sabi so I heard this song and liked it for her. I pictures it in my head like the director in the Netflix series GLOW lol.

    Like that make-up chair was gonna stop a hoard of people LMFAO I’m now a Dana Brooke stan just for that segment.

    • Jasun Mack

      I saved that gif and have been laughing all day at that! Dana maximized her seconds on screen.

      • Marcia Brady

        The comments are KILLING me! Yas Dana!

    • A?.

      I’m screaming it waslike in horror movies when they start throwing objects.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      You should’ve already been a stan!

      • Michael Max

        I actually really got behind her when she first slapped and turned on Charlotte, I was so pissed when they dropped it and repaired them together and killed all the steam she had for her face turn by doing it later in anticlimactic fashion

    • Allyn

      Dana is genuine gold!!!! She always gives us something, good or bad she ENTERTAINS!!!!

    • CH98

      Michael Max you’re cute.?

  • Jasun Mack

    Alicia Fox was the star that night. She looked great dominating the Beatles. And her character work is unmatched right now. Shes been serving the Past few weeks. I really hope they let her shine at SS. Have her be the soul survivor. She deserves to have a big career highlight.

    Mickie that chica served in them six Inch heels. I’m happy Alexa was able to hold her up so she could do her foot paddle in the air.

    Emma is sadly the weakest tonight. Asuka I really hope she doesn’t go straight for the title after SS. I’d like to see Fox get a match with Alexa first.

    Dana had me dying when she threw that chair and ran off.

    Where is Summer Rae?

    Overall a great night for the Ladies of Raw.

    My only complaint is…..not a damn thing.

  • Kvngbalor

    Poor Asuka reviews and fans online are eating her alive her reaction last night was meh the fans were cheering for the football team a lot of ppl are calling her weird not understanding her character & saying she’s all hype and nothing special i honestly think despite loving Emma TLC she should of came out kicked her head off and won same with RAW she should of been backstage waiting alone when SD was under Siege and when the SD crew ran into her she should of been smiling and the SD crew backed off slowly making her look not only dangerous but a sadistic threat to men and women that no one wants any part of already her booking is weird she’s built as this indestructible unbeatable vicious killing machine but comes to the ring Cole keeps pushing her as happy charismatic like to play and have fun she’s dominated during majority of the natch just to do the typical babyface comeback

    • Jasun Mack

      Lmao I knew Asuka wasn’t going to fly on the MR. She’s a niche market share. WWE would be stupid to keep her streak alive.

      • Kvngbalor

        I was so happy for Emma Sunday she showed everyone she has what it takes to be the top female star on RAW but after i got online and saw the Asuka tweets and listening to vlogs i was like wow poor Asuka they aren’t even giving her a chance

        • Jasun Mack

          She already destroyed the NXT women’s division. We don’t need that mess on the MR. There’s too much talent to be buried by Asuka. I’m still mad Ember had to job to her Twice!

    • sleeper11

      but don’t forget Asuka vs. Alexa is money according to the people on here lol what a joke

      • Kvngbalor

        That will make it even worse she honestly should have been called up when Charlotte was heel with the ppv streak going for a match at mania the empress vs the queen

      • Jasun Mack

        Money lost, Asuka is a niche market. Nobody is ready for Asuka to ruin another division.

  • sleeper11

    I’m excited that they’re continuing Alexa vs. Mickie, which makes me believe that Alexa vs. Nattie won’t happen and there will be a title match before Survivor Series, with a possible title change. Mickie is really the best face we’ve had in a long time. She rivals Alexa in every aspect from mic work, to looks, to accolades. This is a great feud that deserves the proper ending of Mickie winning the title.

    I’m assuming the Raw team will be Alicia, Sasha, Bayley, Emma, and Asuka? With only 5 spots some women will get the shaft, probably Nia and Dana. Either way it’s refreshing that we have Alicia in the leader role.

    Dana making the most of her role and getting noticed <3

  • Sunny’s Therapist

    Dana Brooke is so hilarious at times, like why? how? she MADE that scene

  • Kvngbalor

    Dana Brooke now has the funniest female moment running like Captain America this tops Rosa trying to punch Jillian and Jillian slinging her arm like bitch we’re heels we’re on the same side

    • Michael Max

      Omg I loved that Rosa moment, so iconic.

  • wwepassion

    The triple threat looked kinda sloppy and over rehearsed. They just looked out of place. Alicia is cringe with her acting but can’t blame her as she never had the opportunities to find herself, I wonder if they will push her after S.S, she deserves something important. Mickie and Alexa are selling this feud so well, I hope Mickies gets the pay off she deserves and later on meet up with Auska for the title. I loved the ending of raw it felt like old times.

    • Jasun Mack

      Really that match was motn all three did great. I didn’t see anything sloppy. They were bumping hard and the transitions were flawless. Did you even watch it?

      • wwepassion

        Um that’s your opinion not mine. It was a bit sloppy and choppy

  • Mase Will

    I’m very happy for Alicia. Me just like many others didn’t know how she felt until that interview when she explained what it feels like to be embarrassed of herself. So you GO Alicia. I know she doesn’t have any iconic moments and she’s just someone who’s there but I’m rooting for you girl. As far as Mickie and Alexa the feud isn’t over! It seems like this business isn’t finished and Mickie could actually have another title match. YOU GO MICKIE!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3fe6f03054234d65f7590c81d0c47fc596eae9f00bb0fd4021979ad139a11d33.gif

  • GEO

    The seige was FANTASTIC! I love how not only the men were being jump-a-hoes but the women as well! Last year, I couldn’t feel the Smackdown vs RAW dynamic as much, but this year they’re hyping it up real well and I’m excited. Also props to Dana Brooke for running for ha life in those stilettos, she wasn’t about to get jumped that day nope nope.

      Who was all in this segment on the raw end? I see Dana, Renee, Alexa and Emma and some one else. Looks like Mickie but I’m not sure lol.

        It’s the makeup lady I think.

    • Pink slips? I don’t get it.

  • Mase Will

    Mickie is getting another title shot. Alicia is the captain of the raw women’s division. All is right in the world. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f6094ad210cb2bb2cfc167e3080aa8bd31f1304c1ad8b836555d3396f24f7f8c.gif

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    The way Dana just cleared tf outta there!!! LMFAaaaoooooo!!! Omg? She told Emma and Renee move bitch!!!!

    This was the best Raw in a while! Alicia getting the win was everything. Mickie and Alexa slayed. But the highlight of night was the backstage mayhem! I lived so hard for the part where the women cane out and the Smackdown men cleared out the way for their women. I can’t wait for Smackdown tonight!! It’s gonna get crackin!!!

  • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

    Alici’s character is fucking gold. Never been rooting for a heel more than her.

  • Very entertaining raw episode, although I don’t understand why mickie and Alexa is continuing. Alexa beat mickie cleanly and I am sure she will do it again. Mickie’s DDT in those heels was such a sight. Glad they included the women in the attack against raw. Also, Foxy’s character development on this episode was great. I didn’t cringe at her antics this time around. Foxy being team captian pretty much guarantees Becky nor char will be SDL team captain. It will be someone less relevant like mella or tamina. Maybe Naomi. I enjoyed the triple threat a bit more than I should have. The last few minutes of the match between Sasha and Bayley was intense and entertaining. Hate to see Sasha and Bayley stock continue to fall. Auska did not get the crowd reaction I was expecting.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      “Someone less relevant… Maybe Naomi.” Sis Naomi is more relevant than Becky Lynch. The Smackdown team captain could be Tamina or Carmella though.

      • Organization XIII

        I feel like it’s gonna be Mella

      • The less relevant comment was for mella and tamnia. Although, Naomi has faded to the back since losing the title. But she probably is a bit more relevant than Becky

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Yeah I know but you said pretty much guarantees that Becky or Charlotte won’t be the team captain like Becky is relevant. She’s more relevant a little bit, yeah.

      • MK126

        We’ll find out tonight who it is since its char vs naomi vs becky vs tamina vs mella to see who’s team captain

  • brock

    Alicia as captain is ridiculous and isn’t believable at all, It pretty obvious the The Raw Women’s Team will be, Alicia, Sasha, Bayley, Mickie, and Askua

    • Rosanna
      • brock

        It might be happening but it’s still ridiculous and stupid

    • Jasun Mack

      Your comment is ridiculous.

      • brock

        No it isn’t Alicia was a glorified jobber who was hardly on Tv and who just lost 3 straight matches to Sasha now all of sudden she is the Team Captain That doesn’t make one bit of sense it’s rid

        • Jasun Mack

          Blah blah she beat the horses up. Be mad.

          • brock

            Nope has nothing to do with who she beat it’s the fact The she has been a jobber forever now all of sudden we are suppose to believe she is the Team Captain of The Raw Women’s Team it’s Terrible booking and ridiculous

          • AlexV

            You re all over YouTube with this shit too, get over it already! She won and that’s something you’re gonna have to deal with. If you don’t like it, too Damn bad.://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/21a9617c4b9e0c0586df8a5cef24c1f351670dca7b77cba75e0430044f934ca1.gif

    • Queen of Spark

      Sir, have you missed your appointment with the shrink?

    • I kinda get what you are saying about it being unbelievable. Foxy is being pushed out of nowhere and picking up victories after being in the background for so long. It felt like there was no build up or struggle leading up to such a big moment for her. It weird to think she could beat both Sasha and bayley for this captain position when she has consistently loss matches to both of them in the past. If she had did something differently here like cheat or manipulate Sasha and Bayley to steal the victory than I could have totally bought it.

      • Rosanna

        Define cheating? She did a dirty cheap tatic which won her the match.

        • Just anything along the lines of how Alexa win matches: Cheating, playing possum, or out smarting her opponent. I guess what I am trying to say is that it felt like the exact same foxy that has been a jobber for so many years. So it’s werid to see her win such big victories without any real change to her character or ring tactics.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            When was the last time Alexa cheated ?

          • Exactly, I honestly can’t even remember the last time she cheated. She doesn’t even use dirty tactics 95% of the time. She is just aggressive. She doesn’t even go up to the top rope which is technically not allowed

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      If Jinder Mahal can go from jobbing to winning the main title on Smackdown then there should be no problem with Alicia being the captain.

      • brock

        It’s falt and stupid and don’t make any sense whatsoever

        • Jo9834

          There is a pattern if you’ve noticed with Nattie taking the title, Alicia’s push AND Mickie descending upon Alexa with a killer feud. The WWE is pushing their female vets as an answer to the backlash their top girls (Bayley, Sasha) have been getting from crowds. Repetitive 4HW storylines are no longer the norm and the WWE knows they’ve done wrong. Having Alicia in the spotlight lets them rebuild the other girls (like Bayley) AND have the fans believe they are genuinely interested in pushing girls like Alicia and Nattie, good press and good vibes. Look at this entire thread everyone is on a high for Alicia…great publicity.

          • brock

            Nope its stupid booking ridiculous and isn’t believable

  • -V

    That invasion angle is giving me life! The backstage altercations were amazing!
    I honestly can’t wait to see next few weeks & how they will play up Raw vs Smackdown!

  • -V

    Also, Dana running for her life is everything!

  • Jasun Mack

    Alicia winning had a lot of NXT fans livid. Girl watch when she is the first one to beat Asuka down the line. Can’t wait .

  • Oh my God, Raw really did that. They continued all the storylines, Mickie is still in title scene, Alicia is freaking team captain, I can’t

  • Kurt

    Let’s go mickie.. round 2 for that title. Sneak the championship and represent raw in the champion vs champion bout against smackdown woman’s chamo

  • Alexa promo was kinda weird and felt all over the place. I felt like the writers wanted her to get multiple points across And it came across like she was stalling for time and trying a bit too hard. It would have been great if she had focused solely on Mickie James or lack of crowd reaction whenever she wrestles instead of both. Great delivery but awful content.

  • Queen of Spark

    Alicia Fox- My oh my, she’s been killing it these past few weeks. Thank you for speaking out in that interview, Captain Raw! If she gets to be the sole survivor, nice highlight for her resume, Future Raw women’s champion or not.

    Asuka- She needs to not keep saying fun in interviews, unless she adds destruction or something, you know. Liked the match, though.

    Dana Brooke- STAR OF JUST PUSHING THE CHAIR AND RUNNING. Get her in future movie roles, lmao.

    Bayley and Sasha- They were just there and lost, in which is fine with me. They’ve been pushed way too long, so last night decision is VERY acceptable.

    Mickie James- So she’s gonna get a second chance? Even might face Nattie as new Raw Champion? OKAAAAY!

    Alexa Bliss- Man, her mic work will never get stale. Owning the crowd greatly as always.

    • E-Force

      Lol I was dying when Dana was pushing that chair

      • Queen of Spark

        Seriously, her acting keeps getting better. It was like I was watching a bully chase an innocent student.

  • Exotic

    OOp what is a Smackdown? Let me jump into the winning team – RAW!!

  • A?.

    The SS match got ruined last year for a stupid Charlotte-Bayley feud that didn’t even continue the following night. And this year it might get ruined bc of Asuka’s streak. SD women need to win the elimination match, just don’t put Asuka in that match or make her lose by count out.

  • DivaLicious?

    It’s time for me to rain on everybody parade today. It’s time to sprinkle a little truth in you guys ears. Because I’m a reallest at what I do. I know I’m gonna upset a lot of people.

    But it seems like all you gotta do is go on a podcast and complain about not being used, that you don’t have any merchandise etc.. now your the captain of your SS team? You now have merchandise? You are now highly featured on raw programming? Don’t you guys find this to be a suspicious? After 10 years in the bussiness now WWE wants to make Alicia foxx feel special?? this is all out of petty for WWE. They feel bad so they want to throw her a bone. They didn’t really wanna use her until she went on Lillian podcast. It doesn’t feel genuine to me. It doesn’t feel “RIGHT”. This is all out of petty. this all feels forced. Alicia foxx will be irrelevant after SS mark my words. Asuka being on the same team with a maniac like Alicia just imagine how embarrassing that would be.

    The triple threat match was so outta place. They was so confused it wasn’t funny.

    The under siege segment was forced. Raw & smackdown has had no real tension leading up to this. There was no real back & fourth. So why should I care.

    The only good thing last night was Mickie James doing the DDT in them high heels ? & asuka

    • Rosanna
    • Alicia didn’t complain. She just said she was a bit embarrassed but she never said anything that sounded like demands. The fans heard it and notified WWE.

      • DivaLicious?

        Let’s be clear here I don’t have a problem with Alicia foxx. If she wouldn’t have went on Lillian podcast and said what she said. We would have Sasha banks as our team captain. Not a girl that WWE put on the back burner for almost her whole career and was a slackly with the Bella twins, when the divas revolution was starting. C’mon guys you gotta open your eyes.

        This is why I’m here to open your eyes to what’s really going on. Speak some truth to you. Because nobody eles on here is.

        • Jasun Mack

          You’re here to be a negative ass broad. Alicia should’ve never been a jobber to begin with, she stays out performing all they push ahead of her. So go open your own eyes and stop trying to ruin our happiness satan.

          • DivaLicious?

            I’m not being negative. You guys are hiding from the truth. I have NOTHING against Alicia foxx. Sometimes you gotta learn to take negativity. Not everything is peaches & cream around here. It’s like you are living in a fantasy land where nothing matters.

          • Jasun Mack

            Blah blah

          • DivaLicious?

            You know I’m right. You have nothing to say??

          • Jasun Mack

            I don’t keep associating with dumb asses. Go be dumb somewhere else child.

        • What are you talking about? She didn’t complain nor openly discuss it herself, she was asked a question and answered and that was it. Then the fans took notice of it and notified WWE that they have been misusing her.

          Who cares if she’s the captain at least it’s something FRESH, unlike Sasha winning for the 100th time. Y’all HW fans are the worst.

    • Jasun Mack

      Didn’t read past complain, lol go be salty somewhere else. Alicia has been out performing these NXT divas since Paige. She was nice enough to let them get the spotlight.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Oh please. Another negative post from you… are you ever satisfied? Who cares about all that? As long as Alicia is getting a push, that’s the only thing that should matter, nothing else.

    • Organization XIII

      So judging from you’re comment,…does that mean the Women’s revolution was out of pettiness too? ‘Cuz essentially is the exact same formula you just described

    • Super Mateo

      I’d be surprised if WWE didn’t approve every word Alicia said beforehand. WWE has some crafty ways of getting people over…this was one of them. They did the same thing with Emma. If any superstar says publicly something that wasn’t approved, their screen time is likely to disappear.

  • DivaFactz

    Was my ears playing tricks on me but did Mickie James get the loudest pop of all the women tonight? Lol.. Mickie James… loudest pop of the night for the women….. in 2017!.. LEGENDARY!! ICON!! Stop underestimating this women! She is slowly but surely becoming the most over babyface on RAW and I’m here for it!

  • DivaFactz

    Anyways, let me say this, Mickie James and Alexa Bliss have been the best part about the women’s division on RAW. Ever since they started working together, they really brought life into the women’s division. And now I can see why ppl said SD lost big when Alexa and Mickie was drafted cuz ever since they left SD, the SD women’s division has went downhill. So kudos to Mickie James and Alexa Bliss for carrying the RAW women’s fiction these last few weeks and making things interesting. Please keep them working together!!

    • AlexV

      Completely agree. Their feud has been fun to watch, their mix skills are excellent, while Mickie is bringing out the best in Bliss as far as ring work. Mickie is the total package, she needs to win that title and atleast hold it until the Royal Rumble.

  • Also Asuka needs to not be in the elimination tag match, it’ll make it very predictable. She should have another singles match at the PPV.

  • Mitch Von Erich

    The veterans threw the first licks(Mickie and Nattie came ready)

  • Exotic

    Wow Alexa has so many great promos under her belt, like its difficult to rank them as they are all perfect. Shes definitely in the top 5 for best female mic workers ever.

    Mickie, OMG CAN SHE BE MY MOTHER? Shes in her prime look-wise and I’m so glad they continuing her rivalry with Alexa. One of her best rivals TBH.

    Alicia, YAAAAAASSSSS OMGGGG GET THAT WIN QUEEN, SHE NEEDA SNATCH A TITLE OPPORTUNITY NEXT!!!

    I’m being serious wtf going on with Raw? This ain’t normal.

    • Jo9834

      I feel the same way! Raw has been on a roll, and Alexa is pretty much untouchable on the mic at this point, she’s right up there with Stephanie, Trish and AJ IMO, I feel like another two years she’ll be the GM of one of the brands, she’s THAT good. I’d love Alexa throwing shade running things on either brand.

    • GOD STRATUS•

      So many great promos? Top 5 female mic workers. There’s legit 10 women at least in front of her laycool acting as 4 women Trish as 3 Steph and aj Lee as doubles. So 11 women naturally in front of her

      • #FlairfortheGold

        LOL there you go again. YOU are one of the few who think that, but it doesn’t surprise, given that you hate her and all… 90% of others do put her up there…but keep drinking that Hateorade???

        • GOD STRATUS•

          So in one year she’s in the convo with those women ? But I’m a hater ? Or shall we just not speak I’ll of bliss is she above criticism ? Or reproach ? Is she already so perfect that nothing can be said about her ? Like come on

          • #FlairfortheGold

            First of all your argument of laycool being 4 is dumb as hell. There was only 2 involved. And besides, it’s obvious you hate her so even though there is only like a handful in front of her, you’ll go ahead and say “there’s 11” like bitch where

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Okay girl look you don’t have to respond to me. Like ever so my opinion on matters relating to wrestling don’t mean shit to you and I find comfort in that truly. So please try not to waste your time on lil ol me ?

      • AlexV
        • GOD STRATUS•

          Combined lol.

      • Exotic

        So you’re saying that Trish is built like 3 bodies in one?…. What type of dumbass stan calls their fave fat.. The fuck.

        • GOD STRATUS•

          If that’s what you made of it then I’ll not expound

          • Exotic

            “Theres legit 10 women atleast in front”
            “Trish as 3”

            You the one implying that Trish is atleast the size of 3 women built in one. Like you could have just ignored my comment rather than coming across as an delusional pressed and triggered slob.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Pressed ? Check your character count

    • Izzy4lw

      Her promos are seriously great- not so much in content (writing generally sucks in general in WWE) but her delivery is so natural and her facial expressions are so great, it’s hard to not get behind her. I wouldn’t say she’s top 5 of all time tho, only because there’s been some really legendary women on the mic – My top 5 would be 1. Trish Stratus 2. Stephanie McMahon 3. AJ Lee 4. Mickie James 5. Sable

      Speaking of Mickie; last night I was slayed. She looked amazing and that DDT in those heels was legitimately amazing (and looked like she DDT’d Alexa INTO the title)

      • Exotic

        Hmm its debatable and oh no, we aren’t putting Sable in the top 5, infact shes not even in the top 15.

        • Izzy4lw

          I actually really liked her on the mic when she came back to WWE and feuded with Torrie; but even if she wasn’t considered I’d put Vickie at 6 and Alexa at 7. Not a bad place for her to be considering just how many women have come through the WWE, but there’s just been a good amount of legendary women who have ruled the mic.

          • Exotic

            I liked her too but definitely not in the top 10 lol.
            My personal faves on the mic would be AJ, Stephanie and Trish. Alexa is reaching there, I just need to see her cut a promo as a face.

          • Izzy4lw

            That’s honestly what keeps her out of the top 5 for me – AJ, Stephanie, Trish, Vickie, and Mickie have all proven to be able to cut an amazing promo face or heel – so far what I’ve seen of Alexa on the mic is impeccable, but I’ve only seen heel Alexa – I want to know if she can bring that to a face promo. If she does then she may end up in my top 5 of all time, I just have to see. Still though, barring Mickie James Alexa is heads and shoulders above anyone else in the division in terms of promo abilities.

    • Aye Mate

      For me it was probably Alexa’s most effectively promo in getting real heat with the crowd, something the WWE doesn’t tap into enough with her character. Bliss is a villain and isn’t supposed to be getting cheered; she should be berating the crowds to sway their support for the babyface she’s feuding with. But yeah, excellent promo work from Bliss as per usual.

      • Izzy4lw

        Also props to Mickie; that woman has babyface DOWN- she is already at the point where she can get the crowd on her side just by showing up- last night she spoke one entire sentence- that was it. And the crowd ate it up.

        • Aye Mate

          Mickie is just a class act that is finally finding her footing again. She’s a wonderful all rounder and an investment WWE shouldn’t pass up pushing whatsoever.

          • Izzy4lw

            Mickie can be the top face of the division of RAW invests in her, and I sincerely hope they do because she’s the most natural babyface I’ve seen in the women’s division with the exception of maaaaaybe Becky Lynch

          • Aye Mate

            Becky and Mickie are the best female babyfaces in WWE right now, bar none. Agreed.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    RAW is iconic. They’re doing so well. Alicia and Mickie are getting pushes. Sasha and Bayley are picking up wins here and there while not being in the title picture. Emma is looking strong even if she’s losing the matches with Asuka. Alexa… hey. Everyone is getting the TV time and I love it! Sadly Dana is lost in the shuffle when she should be pushed as a babyface. She’s the perfect underdog. She may not be the best in the ring or on the mic but you could see the improvements every time you see her and that’s all that matters. #GiveDanaAChance and RAW will finally be perfect!

    • Organization XIII

      lmfaooooo Why you gotta be shady towards Alexa like that

  • Organization XIII

    Whew! What a RAW. 4 segments of women & they are essentially were back to back. It’s been quite awhile since I was excited/happy with a RAW but this one did it. Asuka vs Emma III was good. Alexa’s promo awesome per usual & Mickie…I live for the Mickie-DDT & Mickie was out there looking like a 5 course meal! Alicia vs Bayley vs Sasha started off stale for me but once Alicia grabbed that bell I was all in. & then to top it off the Belly to Foxy was everything lol & We all feel the same about the backstage takeover. LIT! Way to go RAW

  • Danny?

    Whew I haven’t enjoyed a RAW like last night in quite some time. First off Mother Mickie James did the thing with that DDT and in those heels! She looked amazing and I am definitely here at the idea of Mickie snatching the title before SS so we can see Mickie VS Natalya. This is a match we have only seen once on a random episode of SD with hardly any time. Imagine what they could do nowadays.

    Now Miss Foxy…this girl has been so on point in her character work these last few weeks we have been seeing her and she is only getting better and better. Much deserved win tonight and can’t wait to see where it goes from here.

    Asuka VS Emma was cute. I’m in agreement with most that Asuka shouldn’t be in the SS elimination match and that she should instead be in a separate singles match at the PPV. She can go against another girl from RAW that doesn’t make the team or even one girl from SD, perhaps Charlotte or Naomi, they would give great matches to Asuka.

  • Welchy

    That promo was one of her best.
    That ddt was impressive.
    I really hope Mickie comes out on top when it’s all said and done.
    Alexa looked a mess. Mickie looked hot as hell.
    This is also one of alexa’s best feuds and her best title reign thus far.

    Asuka vs Emma delivered as expected.
    I’d say their takeover match is the best.
    Second TLC.
    Third the match in NXT.
    Fourth would be this one.
    Says a lot about how good their other encounters have been.

    The triple threat was honestly boring and sloppy af.
    Foxy has regressed and no one wants to say it I guess because of how underutilized she is?
    Her crazy shit really brought down the match quality.
    Literally could’ve added any other girl in her spot and the match would’ve been better..including Dana.
    Actually, the triple threat last year with Dana WAS better.

    • Organization XIII

      I wouldn’t say Fox regressed but I will say she looked unsure as of what to do next after some moves. Like there were some really awkward exchanged/pauses from her

      • Jasun Mack

        Where? She was her usual self. Playing to the crowd and taunting her opponents.

        • Organization XIII

          In the corner, Foxy when Foxy went to strike Sasha…she hesitated. Then setting up for the Tower of Doom spot her strikes were sporadic (I guess waiting for Bayley to get in position) & not to mention very weak

          • Jasun Mack

            I’m not playing this game.

        • Organization XIII

          I didn’t really see anything wrong with TLC but I’d have to rewatch that triple threat with Sasha & Emma ‘cuz I don’t really remember it

    • Jasun Mack

      She isn’t allowed to do any moves that outshine the NXT favs. And Alicia always plays to the crowd, that’s what a good heel does takes their time to piss off the fans. You people need better negative complaints.

      • Welchy

        My comment wasn’t negative. You took it that way.

        • Jasun Mack

          No it was,saying she’s regressed, when we all know WWE snatched all her moves away so she can look inferior to the newbies.

          • Welchy

            Is regressed not a word we seem to use here all the time? That doesn’t always equate to a complaint. Ask the other DD users?
            & all WHAT moves?
            A crossbody? That kneeling face buster? Big boot? Or powerbomb?
            Because that’s literally all the moves Alicia used to do that she doesn’t do anymore. & this is in a 10 year span.
            & my comment wasn’t even directed towards her moveset. I just took it there since you seemed to want me to.
            I was talking more about her actual wrestling.
            Her selling is TOO much at times. Her animations.
            And more specifically her timing as of late.

          • Exotic

            She stopped doing like 3/4 of them and I think the point his trying to make is that shes not performing like how she used to, which is true.
            It doesn’t mean shes garbage or anything, just not doing her best, if that makes sense.

          • Jasun Mack

            Because WWE doesn’t want her to be too good like back in the day. Simple

          • Exotic

            Yeah maybe back in 2011… Now don’t think so.

          • Welchy

            Oop

          • Welchy

            She still does 3/4 of these moves. You must be watching witcha eyes closed.
            Bye.

          • Jasun Mack

            You mean 3 of those moves? Nls,Tawbb,corner sunset flip. You’re a waste of my typing. Bye.

          • Welchy

            Then stop typing bitch! Ain’t nobody paying you for it. You clearly can’t count anyways

    • Exotic

      Yeah as a Foxy stan, I do lowkey get bored with her matches as she does the same thing. Her best work was from 2011-2014 and IDKW she ain’t going back to that level of work since shes capable of it.
      Anyway, Im over-looking it cause after 10 years she does deserve this spotlight.

      • Welchy

        Yasssss omg she was one of the best on the roster in 2011. She was tolerable up until 2014 then it just got stale. I look forward to her bridge the most in her matches these days from the inevitable northern lights.

    • Randall

      I don’t think Alexa looked a mess, yes she dresses different then the rest in which I like. She doesn’t have to wear super revealing outfits like the rest of the women do. Just my opinion.

      • Welchy

        Even if she does wanna cover up, I think she could still style it better & make it less dull.

    • Mr. What

      Mickie is hot!!

    LMFAO Dana pushed that chair faster than Emma vs Nia ??? she is queen of gifs! Im shocked Alicia is Team captain but its a good surprise and a lot better than having Sasha or Bayley. It makes it new and fresh which is what this division needs. Even if its not gonna lead to something substantial (like jillians title reign.) Asuka vs Emma was a really good match. Their chemistry is great and a title feud between the two would be hot. MICKIE SHOWED OUT with her DDT in her 6″ pumps! You better show Alexa how a DDT is done!

    • Aye Mate

      Dana knew them boobs would have absailed from that dress if she fought, plus staying true to her helpful nature she used the chair to buy some time for the make up team to escape safely. She’s the modest unsung heroine of this tale. Y’all need to leave her be ?

      • MK126

        She should have threw the chair at them! Use that bodybuilding strength girl ??

  • Womensor

    What an episode for Raw!!! They farther Alexa/Mickie feud, also Alexa/Natalya SS match, SD invading Raw, Alicia becomin captain (WTF?). Let’s see what happens tonight on SD.

    Who are your women team choices?
    SD: Becky, Tamina and Carmella (because of the invasion), and Naomi and Charlotte (because Lana will be as a manager, and Natalya has her own match).
    Raw: Sasha, Bayley and Alicia (because of the captain match), and Emma and Mickie or Asuka (I don’t see Dana in the match, even if she missed last year’s SS, Nia is out, and Alexa has her own match with Nattie).
    If WWE want to farther Alexa/Mickie feud, maybe Mickie doesn’t compete in the traditional match, but appear post match in the champion vs champion match, so Asuka can “kill” SD, and then go against Raw.

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Asukas defo on the team so there’s that congrats foxy Mickie legend James and Sasha trying to guard each other lol fantastic Pam was there idk where Charlotte was but great night. Sn the champ needs a stylist. Maybe bring someone over from E!? Any whoo can’t wait for SD tn

    • Welchy

      Yousa hating ass bitch & I bet you dress like a broke ass bitch who shop at Payless and Forman Mills

    • Izzy4lw

      I dunno tho man, Asuka’s booking (I know people are living for the back and forth of her matches with Emma) have somehow gotten her less over. People expected a monster to come out and destroy everyone and so far she seems… beatable even. Her unbeatable mystique is just sort of… gone so far on the MR.

      • Aye Mate

        To be fair it’s been like two matches.

        • Izzy4lw

          True; and when the match happened I was happy with it at survivor series, but Asuka has been built and billed as an unbeatable machine- her entire mythos and character is based on her being an out of this world talent, and she’s having competitive matches with Emma (who I love) but who hasn’t really been a real player – let’s be real, winning one match won’t undo the years of terrible booking. I understand that they wanted the audience to get a show at TLC, but Asuka should have decimated Emma last night. Sad to say, but with a build like Asuka’s, a ‘competitive match’ won’t work – she needs to steamroll the competition (at least, those lower on the totem pole) or the audiences fascination with her will waiver.

          • Aye Mate

            Outside of Aaliyah and Liv Morgan, Asuka had competitive matches with near enough all of her NXT counterparts at times – including a singles match with Eva Marie.

            I think booking Asuka to work a bit harder for her streak is the best way to balance out the vulnerability of her character and the idea of losing her streak come off meaningful. Plus, Emma’s never looked as good as she has in these matches for ages since returning to the main roster.

          • Izzy4lw

            The matches were more competitive, but it was clear that Asuka was in control- which we didn’t see with her matches with Emma. Asuka Vs Emma I, Asuka VS Dana Brooke, Asuka VS Ruby Riot or against Peyton Royce, even Asuka VS Ember- there was a way the match flowed that always made you feel like Asuka was still the one running the show, and her opponent was just trying to keep up. Her matches with Emma have been almost 50/50, and if the crowd doesn’t believe in Emma and Asuka is struggling to beat her, it affects her (as evidenced by the meh reaction last night) if they wanted it to be closer, then the finish should have at least been more decisive- hell, Asuka could have kicked Emma in the head and KO’d her or something. I’m just saying that for someone being billed as dominant, she’ll need to look dominant. And I don’t think the last two matches have accomplished that.

          • Aye Mate

            It’s all relative, I suppose. Squash matches didn’t no Nia any favours, and I’d have gotten bored watching Asuka kick the heads off random jobbers until creative primed her for the title picture.

            I think less is more would be best here. Just have Asuka scout her competition from here on out; her reputation alone should, kayfabe, have the women on their guard for when she decides to pounce. You don’t even need to book Asuka regularly in the ring until she decides to chase for the title.

          • Izzy4lw

            Right! I don’t think a squash would help her either- but the matches could be set up to show dominance even if there’s a more back and forth feel to a match; if Asuka is booked to win, knock her opponent out, have more sequences with her opponent trying something and Asuka countering and mocking, have the heel run out of the ring the second Asuka so much as twitches; psychology can sell a match, and I think her match was Emma was too straightforward to really sell the threat that commentary keeps telling us she is. Not everyone watches NXT, so creative can’t rely on her NXT resume to get her over- we saw how well that worked with Bayley :/

            You’re my favorite poster here. Logical thinking with no bias.

          • Aye Mate

            Thanks :) I try to temper my serious passion for wrestling with an ounce of humour while not getting personal with either the women themselves or other fans. There’s too much needless drama on these sites!

      • ThePeaceVibe.

        I’m not getting the idea she lost her “unbeatable” mystique with a lot of people. Her matches are usually very competitive – the result is her winning it and her opponents coming up short every time. If she went around squashing everyone like it seems people thought would happen then that’s a great way to ruin every other woman on the roster.

        • Izzy4lw

          I think what I meant by that wasn’t so much in the competitiveness of the matches, but the psychology of them that didn’t quite sell her as the monster she was billed as. More could have been done within the match to show her dominance – more mocking, more counters, a more decisive finish, etc. I just really want her to succeed, and want her to get the monster build without the burying of other talent.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Nothing matters anymore lol

  • Jasun Mack

    Alicia fox beat two horses in one night. Keep being salty lol!

  • conan_kun

    Raw is getting better with 3 women feuds featuring Mickie/Alexa, Asuka/Emma, Sasha/Alicia. It doesn’t make sense for pure babyface Becky and other babyfaces joins force to outnumber and brutally beat down innocent Raw talents.

  • Vince Martin

    I was cackling at Tina the whole invasion segment lol. I mean she’s the only member of team blue who wore a leather jacket out instead of the SDL shirt and the way she was screaming “get him” was a total kii

  • #RiotWithRuby

    Can we talk about the fact that Alexa, Emma, & Dana ALL ran away from the SD roster last night instead of fighting back?

    • Izzy4lw

      I don’t know why Dana did since she’s a babyface but it makes sense with Alexa’s and Emma’s characters that they’d turn tail and run at the first sight of a challenge.

      • #RiotWithRuby

        Valid points. But the way I see it, both of them shouldn’t have. With Alexa champion, she should have fought to defend her division and Emma should have to prove her spot on the SS team, since it looks like the four women that got beat down will be members and Asuka being the possible fifth.

        • Izzy4lw

          Honestly Alexa and Emma’s characters though are selfish- Alexa will use anyone to help her but she truly only cares about herself, and Emma’s character couldn’t care less if the division burns so long as people give her admiration, so I think if any two were going to run it would be them.

          • Captain DJ #FilipinoPride

            and Dana ran coz she about that jogging life

          • Izzy4lw

            Dana would be the sole survivor in a horror movie, she was throwing chairs and sprinting for her life She was not about to get caught.

        • Maddox

          Alexa always runs from her opponent s, why would she wanna fight a horde

      • Aye Mate

        Easy. Dana ran because she was not only outnumbered, but there were men within the enemy lines too. Ain’t no crime in not being dumb.

    • Women’s Revolution

      Ok. “Some Goddess Little Miss Bliss”

      Dana was running like she’s trying to survive a killer in a horror movie.

  • Aye Mate

    RAW was flawless, really it was; concluding like the fucking red wedding from Game of Thrones, and Alicia Fox is supposed to be leading the troops into battle? PRICELESS.

    Also, you know you’re that bitch when you can drop someone in sky high heels without breaking a sweat. Mickie’s lil’ feet peddling into the air as she got that DDT on Alexa had me weak. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c12fa8cf3d6d270a6c68533738984f3e39a51f79f0a8e5013bae3fd19db3089d.gif

    • Gerg

      YAAAASSSS at Mickie’s stut….at her mid air foot pedal…and most importantly doing it all in those shoes

      • Aye Mate

        When she lunged at Becky during the invasion it became quite clear to me that Mickie has lowkey taken care of some hoes in the past.

        • Gerg

          They dont call her Hardcore Country for nothin

  • Joseph

    Bayley and Carmella finally fought each other, they didn’t fight last year during the Survivor Series build up and match.

  • Allyn

    a few seconds ago
    I really really really hope raw can keep this up it was great last night!!! Mickie VS Alexa needs to continue, but I’m still in shock over Alicia’s win!!, yeah it may not mean much at first but the fact that Alicia literally came out of weeks of being nowhere and is now the first superstar of this story line says a lot! And lets not get started on Dana, she didn’t have to say a word and she is giving us all life!!!!!! Lets not jinx it though lets just appreciate the glory of this week and cross our fingers for next week.

And Im so happy that foxy and mickie are finally getting the showcase they deserve

    • Allyn

      I am on life support over all this and I am not mad! ???

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Wow Alexa was there?! She was hard to see! I barely saw Emma but I only really noticed Dana because she was in a better view in the scene but she threw down that chair lol

    • Jasun Mack

      Alexa was already out the building after Dana threw the chair. Her head was still hurting after that DDT.

    • AlexV

      Emma looks hot !

  • Jasun Mack

    All I know is Alicia fox better have a new theme by SS. We can’t have that PA PA PARTY mess any longer.

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    We got 2 matches, backstage segment and in ring segment plus the ladies were involved in the SD takeover! Good night, I’m happy for Foxy and Mickie! I hope they both continue to get exposure/tv time and I would love to see Alicia be contender for the title! And also build up Alicia to be a PPV opponent for Asuka. Also it was nice to see Dana, she made the best in those 10 secs of tv time, being all dramatic lol I’m surprised Alexa sold Mickie’s DDT and Mickie did in those pumps!

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    Tbh where was Asuka during the invasion? They could have made a comedic moment with her. SD roster runs into her while she was walking to her car with luggage in hand. Asuka gives them the “Asuka gonna kill you” stare. The SD boys tell the ladies to get her but they hesitate and let her pass and Asuka walks away murmuring “I thought so” and smiles and leaves. Then one of the New Day guys saids “Let’s go!” And they continue the invasion.

    • vdcvt

      this! Woulda been great to see Asuka give them the look and build her character a bit on RAW

    • Michael Max

      This would have been funny, but would have hurt the whole smackdown roster. Asuka may be dominating but an entire roster of people would still believably take her down. Leaving her out protected her and the Smackdown roster.

      • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

        Dude Naomi and Charlotte weren’t there and the men aren’t gonna lay a finger on her. She would have made short work of Tina, Carmella, Becks and the Cat Lady.

  • vdcvt

    So glad Mickie is still in the title hunt. Itd be great for her to win the title and hey with a proper build up her 7th title win would be a heck lot more impressive.
    And foxxxxyyy! About damn time! Hahaha ROCK PAPER SCISSORS, she cracks me up!!

  • Marshy

    They keep on showing the exit sign but I think that they are already inside the arena. Don’t believe just watch.

  • Sarona

    The writing for this site jus gets worse and worse

  • Alicia did that! She was the match tbh. Her move thief was it!
    I’m glad Mickie vs Alexa isn’t over but now I’m like hmmm are one of the champs going to lose before the ppv. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/392c1743b1c0a1faf2b92917a5b374ca4317c25c06f80f179e84d6e8499c973c.jpg

  • Nikki’s Sister

    Becky was so hilarious during the whole attack she was so into it.

  • IconicTrio

    Dana’s unintentional comic gold!

    Overall most if not all of the female roster had their shine. Most notably Alicia.

    Alexa got her usual spotlight, Mickie looked and came off great. Bayley and Sasha ate a loss but were featured and won’t suffer anything off one loss.

    Emma looked good once again against Asuka.

    My favourite RAW this year.

  • The Wicked Bitch
    • Michael Max

      Damn she must be thirsty without TJ around LMAO she had it gripped, I mean hell I’d do the same thing to Ryder but damn lol

      • The Wicked Bitch

        Thirsty queen. She’s about to go dominatrix on Ryder.

    • She got a handful of dick…but I mean…if it were me…I would have gotten a mouthf…nevermind

      • The Wicked Bitch

        Lmao

    • StraightFire

      Omg

  • Robann

    “I don’t do jump-a-hoes…”

    First of all DD, you petty. LMFAO

  • I would love for Mickie to win the title before Survivor Series and have a match against Nattie.

  • Monkey Tennis

    Alexa vs Mickie continuing is no bad thing. And in retrospect, I probably should have expected it, There was no point setting up a new feud for Alexa as her next PPV match is already scheduled against Nattie. With that in mind, sticking with Mickie just to keep things ticking along makes sense.

    Alicia as RAW captain? Well, it remains as pointless a role this year as it was last. But fair play, it gives Alicia something to do for a while. Personally, I’m bored with the whole crazy woman angle. It’s been on and off for a while now so there’s no consistency to it and it’s a monumentally tired trope anyway. It’s just standard creative laziness that on the rare occasions they’ve given Alicia a push in recent years, it’s their go to angle.

    As for the Smackdown invasion angle. Meh. Obviously, we suspend disbelief a lot when it comes to the WWE. Often most particularly when it involved what in any other scenario would simply be a straight up case of assault. So when people o the same brand attack each other backstage, it’s generally understandable.

    This though? This just felt weird, like a step too far. Not in terms of what SD did, but just the plausibility of it, even in the kaybiest of kayfabe. I mean, their plan was essentially “Let’s go to RAW and beat up some people because reasons”. “And hey, you’re normally a heel and I’d normally hate you but screw that cos we gotta attack some people that normally we’d like more than you. Again, because reasons.”

    I dunno. maybe seeing Becky leading the Smackdown charge is what felt the most wrong. Her entire shtick is that she’s this stand-up,fair fighting lass kicker who always strives to do the right thing. Which is what made her actions on RAw just seem so… off.

    • S/P

      “Alicia as RAW captain? Well, it remains as pointless a role this year as it was last. But fair play, it gives Alicia something to do for a while.”

      That’s exactly what being team captain is for it’s just a vehicle. Last year it was used to set up the Nattie-Nikki sneak attack feud.

  • So…my biggest critique of RAW is the commentary during the matches. “Nobody wants to see an Alicia Fox lead team at Survivor Series”. There was a better way to word that for instance “Alicia Fox as leader of the team could make it unstable due to her being so unpredictable in and out of the ring”. Also they basically tore Emma down calling her stupid and crazy for asking for a rematch against Asuka, saying she is a glutton for punish…seriously? We get that Asuka is awesome, continue to talk her up, but don’t essentially take away from the other ladies to make Asuka seem better. For one that’s completely unnecessary and 2nd it takes away any credibility any competitor going against Asuka may have.
    I enjoyed the matches and the segment even though Mickie almost bust her ass lol

  • NoWayHoeSay

    Mickie looked incredible and that ddt was soo good
