It’s been a week of ups and downs in the world of women’s wrestling, but it’s another RAW to start us off. With Survivor Series wars starting with an explosive was last week, how would the ladies of RAW respond? Let’s find out in the RAW Redux!

At the top of the show, the RAW General Manager Kurt Angle addresses the RAW roster who are on the entrance stage. Following last week’s ‘siege’ takeover by the SmackDown roster, Angle wants to apologise for putting them at risk. However, the RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon’s music hits the PA and she makes her way down to the ring – her first appearance since WrestleMania 33! However, despite the smiles, Stephanie is out for blood and isn’t so happy with Angle letting her brother Shane McMahon and his crew ruin the show. As a result, she makes him the Team Captain of the RAW men’s team, expecting total annihilation or else he can expect to be replaced… like Mick Foley.

Next up, Bayley is set to take on RAW’s Team Captain for the female team – Alicia Fox!

Bayley makes her way to the ring and Alicia comes out wearing a throwback to one of her 2012 Sailor attires, complete with Captain hat. Following Stephanie’s demand for the RAW brand, she states that since she’s too busy being the Captain, she hasn’t got time to have a match… but she’s found a suitable replacement – the returning Nia Jax!

New lighter hair and a glitzy new attire – Nia is definitely back to prove why she deserves a spot on the team. Although, Bayley still hasn’t forgiven her for injuring her shoulder before Summerslam. This match is a bit of a quick one, we know Nia Jax is more of a ‘PPV performer’ so most of this match is very similar to what we have seen from these two before – running avalanches, Bayley taking advantage of Nia missing spots and even attempting a sleeperhold. By the end, Nia is just too strong and finishes Bayley with a running senton and running leg drop for the victory. Get that spatula because Bayley has been flattened.

Before Nia exits the ring, Alicia pipes up and tells her that she gets the first spot on her team for Survivor Series on Team RAW! 3 spots left and it looks like Alicia is on the lookout for only the best.

When asked about being picked for the RAW women’s team, Nia isn’t too happy with being asked the obvious.

Backstage, RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss catches up with Kurt Angle in one of the more controversial segments of the night. She sees that Angle is a bit delicate after being berated earlier by Stephanie, so she offers some support to improve RAW. The first tip is to clear out the ‘deadweight’ in the women’s division, specifically Mickie James. She says that they can replace her with someone from the Mae Young Classic, or even dig up Mae Young herself. However, Angle doesn’t entertain Alexa’s ideas and reminds her how she ran away last week, unlike Mickie who took on the SmackDown invaders. As a result, he sets tonight’s main event – Alexa Bliss will defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Mickie James!

Next, they play repeat Asuka’s promo to warn us that she’s coming out next. I don’t know if this is going to be a thing, but definitely an unnecessary 30 seconds that could have gone to something else.

Asuka comes out and has a pretty quick squash match against Stacie Cullen (Kasey Catal). The match starts with a spinning backfist and a stomp to the face, it ends about 2 minutes later with a vicious Asuka lock. Asuka celebrates with a cocky dance in the ring as the lights dim out.

Finally, it’s the main event of the night. Mickie James is out once again trying to get her 7th title win.

Despite being the main event, the match definitely didn’t seem to give off that big match buzz. Much like their other matches it’s Mickie’s experience VS Alexa’s catty aggression. We know the two are quite evenly matched and these two work similar styles, so we know that they can deliver. However, the crowd really failed to get into this one and once again this hurt the ‘big match feel’ that this could have had.

When Alexa is on the offence, a lot of it are rest-holds and hair slams, which seem to drain the crowd. By the time Mickie starts to fire up, attempts a Mickie Thesz Press from the tope rope, but gets yanked down. Alexa then goes up, but get kicked in the head by Mickie and falls out of the ring. Mickie throws Alexa back in, attempting to fly again, this time she connects but only get the 2 count. Mickie attempts a series of roll ups, but gets up and walks right into a rough forearm by Alexa Bliss. Mickie drops to the mat and falls victim to the pinfall as Alexa Bliss retains her Championship.

Following her victory, Alexa once again tells Mickie to give up because she’s old!

Thoughts: I don’t know who wrote that backstage skit for Alexa Bliss, but after the way wrestlers and fans went crazy on Lio Rush, talking about ‘cutting dead weight’ after the releases of Emma and Summer Rae was pretty distasteful. Not to mention the comment about digging up Mae? I would put money on it, that the team behind this were the ones who thought of ‘Emmalina’. Just all very insensitive and just awkward to watch, if I was Emma someone would be catching hands right now.

This week’s RAW just fell flat for the women. Alicia’s mic work isn’t the strongest, but if she’s going to be in this role then she needs to be at the forefront. I think they should have put her on commentary during the match, instead of awkwardly standing there. She should have been out there watching Asuka’s match and the Alexa/Mickie match. If the friggin’ General Manager is Captain of the men’s team, then Alicia needs to be held in that regard too.

Nia coming back was expected. Whether it’s because she didn’t want to job or because she wasn’t happy with pay, we all kinda knew she’d be back for Survivor Series. As I said before, she’s more of a ‘PPV player’. I’m never blown away by her until it’s a big match and I’m sure she’ll work some great spots during the match.

Asuka is on the verge of bombing, but that’s because they clearly don’t know what to do with her. That crowd was already over her and that match did nothing for her, neither did the goofy dancing. If they wanted to be useful, they should have had her knock out that woman with one hit. Alicia should have been on the sides watching, scouting for her team. I personally don’t think Asuka should make the team, but making her the ‘unattainable goal’ immediately raises her stock.

Finally onto the main event, you guys know I stan for Mickie and I actually thought it was her night, but that match did nothing for me. It was so safe and just seemed to be the ‘full stop’ to finish their feud, which is a shame because there was still a lot more life in that. It definitely seemed like a way to put things on hold, Alexa can focus on Natalya, while Mickie moves into the team. I think we can all agree that what probably killed the match the most was the forearm. All Alexa had to do was lift her up and do a DDT and I would have been able to forgive her… but that was a real bum note.

Overall, this Survivor Series warfare has already started on a rough note for the red team so hopefully they can kick this into gear.

Are you happy that Nia is back? What did you think about that promo, am I overreacting? Should Asuka join the RAW team? Send in your comments below!

  • I didn’t think Alexa could find a worse way to finish a match than her DDT. Full of surprises that one.

    We can add Mickie to the list of women Blissdozer made a mockery of.

    • Aye Mate

      It’s essentially a similar narrative to Ivory berating Moolah back in the day, and just as bowling shoe ugly to watch.

      • KatyaMenelli

        Except that Ivory was actually good in the ring….

      • John Finnie

        & atleast Moolah got her revenge by getting to hold the title. Mickie didnt

        • KatyaMenelli

          EXACTLY!!

    • Jo9834

      Alexa is basic, but I doubt she chooses how the match ends, if the WWE ever has the nerve to ask why their ratings are falling, you can blame creative for these nonsensical lackluster matches and finishers.

      Mickie will never get the title, they won’t let her of all people dethrone or match Trish, that will either be Charlotte or Alexa at this point.

  • You know what was my favorite moment of this Raw? Seeing Alicia, Nia and Samoa Joe on the same stage. For some reason seeing them standing together for few seconds made the girls look more equal than any 20+ minute match. I miss the days when guys and girls mixed things up more often then now in storylines.

    • I disagree. From a kayfabe standpoint, it made it look like the guys didn’t give a shit about the women and had no problem stealing their time. From a non-kayfabe standpoint, it made it look like the company didn’t think the segment was important enought to let them properly finish. It’s not that big of a deal at the end of the day, but it did bother me a little. Especially when they did it twice in one night, announced Mickie vs Alexa as the main event but didn’t actually closed the show with them.

      • I didn’t see it as “guy doesn’t care about women segments” but just Samoa Joe being Samoa Joe. I think it suited his character perfectly. And I’m glad that mess of a match didn’t main event. The guys story is just better and more important than a bad rematch. I appreciate your opinion tho. We agree to disagree :)

        • I’m actually glad the show didn’t end with that trainwreck of a match too to be honest, but the way it came to be bothers me: shortest main event in ages, starting late, no introductions, and the crowd was clearly waiting for Braun and Miz. They technically got the “main event” but it seemed more like the death slot.

        • Izzy4lw

          People can scream all they want about how ‘wrestling doesn’t matter’ but if you’re going to put two people in the main event, then you need one of two things: both people you’re putting in that slot need to be absolute BEASTS in the ring or able to make magic happen, OR… the storyline has to be super hot and the characters need to be super over; neither of those things happened last night. Mickie can wrestle her ass off, Alexa wrestles like she’s just finished playing WWE 18 and just learned the generic CAW moveset for diva #1. Mickie isn’t as over as she could be because she’s been so mismanaged in her return. Alexa is over still. The storyline is shallow and not really main event worthy. They were set up to fail – by not getting a better story, by building up Mickie over the last like… month only, and for letting Alexa come up to the roster without being able to REALLY wrestle.

      • Maddox

        Way better the show ending with Strowman destroying people than that bland match

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        I completely agree. It seemed like things they would do in the diva era like “move aside ladies, men are the real stars”. That’s what it implied to me.
        Granted, I wouldn’t even have Alexa and Mickie main event the show tbh…

        • Izzy4lw

          Mickie can main event a show. She just needs a better opponent so they can put on a clinic.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Don’t me wrong on Mickie, I was solely talking about this combination. Them together, main eventing a show doesn’t seem exciting AT ALL.
            Plus, Mickie was booked so weakly before her feud with Alexa that you can’t truly be that hyped for a main event involving her.

    • tstumo

      The only time it was an issue was when it kept cutting to the mix at the end of the show. The match was lackluster and Alexa retained and it should’ve been the focus but it lingered and she stayed int eh ring and THAT was a mess. I agree seeing Joe come out and the girls be there I thought was cool to see personally

  • Scarlet Letter

    I kinda think Mickie should had won the title, and if she was going to lose the title, she shouldn’t had lost it because she was punched in the face. I mean, did they just rush the ending so they can do that whole thing with Miz and stroman. It kinda made it seem like, oh we’ll make the women the main event, but we’ll follow it with something else so we dont end the show with the women.

  • Randall

    The whole ending of Raw was off!! I have a feeling the ref told them to rap the match up seeing that it was 11:05 and they needed time for that ending of the show! I’m sure it would haven been a better match if it wasn’t rushed!

    • Michael Max

      Very possible, but even so.. if they needed to wrap it up it should have been with Alexa’s finisher still.

  • MK126

    Im so confused as to what Nia is doing in that gif lol

  • ???

    Ever Smackdown became a mess and after Raw’s last night now I wish girls like Peyton Royce and Ember Moon never debut on the MR .

    Emma was the reason why I became interested in Raw , after she left I lost some of my interest in the show but I HOPED that Mickie would win the title from Bliss or “at least” deliver a very good match and now I’m losing all my interest.

    Do you know what the current division state remind of ? It’s remind me in 99s when Sable was the only woman that above everyone else while the other talented women are treated like shit .. Alexa is definitely Sable 2.0 .

    I don’t know how Mickie will get up by such a horrible finisher like that ? She will no longer be seen as a threat anymore , I hate you WWE .

    • Scarlet Letter

      how is Alexa anything like Sable? Alexa can actually wrestle and didn’t put in her contract about not having to take any bumps in the ring. To compare the two is very naive. Just because not all the women are being utilized for the title doesn’t mean they’re being treated like shit. Emma was a writers flop and they couldn’t fix what they did. Oh well, good luck in TNA. The other women are getting used in the survivor series tag match, so it’s not like you have all the women just sitting back stage. They’re using their women like we’ve been asking for them to do.

  • Sable’s Bumps

    anyone else notice the jobber asuka faced was dressed almost exactly like emma?

    and the ending to the main event was deplorable.

  • Rosanna
    • Scarlet Letter

      If the writers play it right, Alicia could be leading to a title run. I mean ever since that interview, when she said she was embarrassed of her career, WWE has been starting to use her more.

  • Organization XIII

    I’m truly saddened they ended the match with a forearm like that. Alexa is not a powerhouse. So her doing a power strike doesn’t make any sense to “finish” someone off. Also as much as I like Alexa, dropping the ball in a main event match really was the worse time to do so. She was in control for 85 – 90% of the match & it was completely draining & uneventful. No real spots, no real technical wrestling. Main events usually are supposed to give you a PPV feel & this match made me feel like a random thrown together. Even if the match was cut Alexa could’ve won with the DDT. Truly disappointed

    • MK126

      Isnt this the second time Alexa has main evented in a singles match for the title and dropped the ball? I am a fan of hers but even I know that shes not capable of putting on ME worthy matches yet

      • TheRealest #ItsBossTime

        The third time counting her boring steel cage match on SD. She really has no idea how to maximize her opportunities.

        • MK126

          I meant the steel cage lol when else did she main event?

          • TheRealest #ItsBossTime

            Against Sasha after Summerslam

          • MK126

            Oh where she won the title back? I forgot LOL which says a lot

      • Winter

        Yeah her match with Sasha was awful too and it’s difficult to achieve a bad match with her.

        • MK126

          Her match with Sasha was bad but definitely not the worst… that goes to vs becky in a steel cage. I’ll never understand how they manage to fuck up a steel cage match and make it boring. For her to be in the spotlight for as long as she has been she has no career defining moments/matches

          • Winter

            Agree 100%

          • MK126

            Which sucks cause she CAN do it. I’ve always said she was a better wrestler as a face and has better mic/character work as a heel but cant seem to mesh the two together.

          • Winter

            Being honest I actually don’t care if she can put on a decent match, I’m over with her, she needs to take a step back for months.

          • Greg Lee

            Well, her “This is your life” promo was pretty memorable………….for all the wrong reasons.

      • Organization XIII

        The one against Sasha was a good match. The result was just tragic

  • Mickie lost again ? What was the point pushing her like that, to make her lose again and again when it matters ?? I’m so done with Alexa -_-

    • Scarlet Letter

      It was pretty much to build up Alexa for the PPV. It’s a side storyline to fill in time for the PPV. That way, we’re not complaining that Alexa isn’t doing anything and why is she holding the title if she’s not doing anything. I mean, WWE was pretty much at a lose lose with that cause you all were gonna complain either way

      • KatyaMenelli

        No, we just want Alexa to lose the title ASAP. That shouldn’t be so hard to do. Stop trying to give them excuses.

  • Winter

    Wake me up when Alexa loses the title, this is a nightmare.

    • #FlairfortheGold
      • Winter

        Here come the Alexa fans…zzzzzzzzzz

        • #FlairfortheGold

          Says the annoying Sasha fan that keeps trying to shove her down everyone’s throat more than she already has been…zzzzzzz

          • AlexV

            I like Alexa, but I can atleast we can say Sasha backs it up in the ring, while clearly Alexa doesn’t…

          • #FlairfortheGold

            You’re right, and I always give Banks her props for doing so. But if you know anything about this user, it’s that he/she likes to bash on anything that isn’t Banks related. Will literally be like “I hope Alexa can improve” one second and then next, be bashing her because she’s no Sasha Banks. Like okay, Sasha Banks ain’t no damn Mickie James or Asuka, so don’t even go there boo boo?

          • Winter

            She. And that was a time when I wanted Alexa to improve but that’s not possible.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            That was like what, last month? Girl Bye?

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Actually askua is no Sasha banks. She’s a brawler Sasha’s a wrestler. Even edge said Asuka pretty much ain’t shit no psychology and unrelatable. ” Things like the ankle lock on a night where Kurt came back. Which was inconsequential to the finish ” much like edge and any other well respected ” wrestler ” theyll tell ya. Asukas NO Sasha banks hell proof is in the pudding asuka doesn’t have a match of the year not even a candidate … She billed as dominant but anti climatic much like your girl … Leave Sasha out of this and support Asuka and Mickie

          • #FlairfortheGold

            No Sasha is good at being a spot fest. I disagree because yea, like you said, Asuka isn’t liked by everyone as the best, but neither is Sasha Banks. Sasha is on top in terms of overall, but wrestling wise, she’s more flash move based rather than technical or brawling base. Besides, don’t y’all birch about wanting wrestling, which is what Asuka tends to do a lot, and not just spots?

          • John Finnie

            Watch kana NOT Askua she can fly high also

          • AlexV

            Don’t bother arguing with this person, I think he/she is delusional with a subsequent, skewed perception of reality. Not to mention the superiority complex. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3fac34fe704ac2d423e2a9cb12dadf9d248891ec0069c450d8993fa714304ba7.gif

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Edge isn’t the master on wrestling and there’s people that don’t agree with him on that and rightfully so.

          • John Finnie

            Yeah & Edge got destroyed for that comment…… he got told he was one of the worst basic main eventer at the time & if it wasnt for lita affair he would Never have held the WHC

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Which is smark hate truth hurts everyone hates the truth and edges truth is he’s a hall of famer whose been in the business longer than many ppl have been a fan so someone who wrestled for a livings opinion will matter more when talking about wrestling than a fan who doesn’t agree due to their lack of knowledge? of the art …. Would you say you know more about wrestling than someone whose wrestled for 20 years ? Smh the legends mean nothing no one has any respect anymore for anything smh again don’t care for your response if it’s fueling uninformed unsubstantial mark heat. Remember Bret getting so much heat for his comments on the women and ppl attacking him like he’s no legend no respect for ppl with no respect.

          • John Finnie

            You do know he said he only seen one or two matches & to be fair Edge was always overrated. he only got the whc because of his & matt & Amys personal live

          • GOD STRATUS•

            I thought egdes mania tag match was legit with Hardy’s at mania smh how quickly fans forget but IG ” nobody’s ready for asuka right ? Lol

          • John Finnie

            Omg r u talkilng about tlc2 at WM when it was E& C The hardys & lita & the dudleys??? It was fantastic BUT it was full of spots But as i said that didnt matter because it looked reel.
            Spot monkeys are great as long as they can make it legit look real Sasha Naomi are great but it shows a little less than the queen

          • GOD STRATUS•

            I’m guessing your saying char is a bigger spot monkey than Naomi…? Cos the boss is no spot monkey. Does she have a moonsalt she hits every match to no avail ? In fact what are these spots Sasha does weekly cos she’s been playing it safe for a while now …. Char on the other hand uses that moonsalt like it’s a regular move so what’s your point here

          • John Finnie

            My point is…. in simple terms their are spot monkeys, brawlers, strongstyle, etc etc & i like them all.
            Sometimes repettitive is boring whomever it is wrestling
            So the point i dont care whos a spot monkey i love female wrestlers hell lita is my fav to this day her & trish
            Im not getting into it with you because you & i agree on alot of things. & when someone calls you out i defend you because i can see your side……so may i ask what is the point in continuing this, when we both love wrestling females tamina as well ??

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Spot monkey in wrestling just isn’t a good thing. But your right why fight we’re agreed

          • John Finnie

            Why even bring the comment up after ^^^^^ this one where i agreed with you that TLC2 was the best Wm match of the night…

            & you start up the sasha charlotte stuff again

          • John Finnie

            I love them all…. apart from Nia BUT alot of wrestlers call Sasha a spot monkey
            Askua or should i say Kana has been classed as one of the top 10 wrestlers in the world NOT wwe
            Put Sasha vs Aakua & they would gel well Askua hard style. Sasha flying high taking risks.

            This is Wwe & if their is one thing they are great at is making great outside wrestlers look weak ( Sorry i mean women who are not of colour)

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Who calls Sasha a spot monkey receipt please I’d like to take it to them …. Cos Char’s a spot monkey a moonsalt every match to no avail that’s a spot monkey Sasha uses psychology boo didn’t you just hear Rollins call her one of the greatest without adding woman. Or Steve Austin or Brett or Kurt or do you o my respect what the dirt sheets report about a person ? This is slander unbelievable slander “Sasha’s a spot monkey ” who in the hell if you don’t have a receipt don’t respond.

          • John Finnie

            Rollins said because Sasha is here right now he would choose her… he was being nice not genuine….. as for receipts just scrowl through the comment…..& by the way i like Sasha naomi lita etc i love the mollys victorias. The jazz beths etc so i love all styles unless they look fake as……

          • Charm City Gamer

            Edge didn’t watch Asuka in NXT.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            It’s not like he missed any matches of the year or anything. And he’s right about the ankle lock spot tho no matter what

          • Charm City Gamer

            What does that even matter?

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Bc there represents the heart of the matter sweetheart …. THERE IS NOTHING SPECIAL GOING ON WITH ASUKA other than a streak that hasn’t lived up to the billing

          • Vid Trim

            Asuka’s had the two best women’s matches this year tho

          • GOD STRATUS•

            ” women’s matches “

          • Winter

            I’m not even talking about Sasha lol

          • wysna

            Except the fans actually called for her to be in the spotlight. I have yet to hear the fans react the same way to Alexa so…

          • #FlairfortheGold

            You Lee kidding right?

  • TheRealest #ItsBossTime

    This RAW was just so off in so many ways. Still feel sorry for Mickie for putting up with that stupid ass, nonsensical finish and all the fans who were looking forward to the main event or even a half decent match. They really out here making womens´ slap special a legitimate finisher in 2017..
    https://m.popkey.co/f0e5c0/eLE7K.gif

    • Charm City Gamer

      It was a punch to the face, Mickie sold it perfectly.

  • Shan

    I liked Alicia. That is all.

  • TheRealest #ItsBossTime

    And I´ve said all that I have to say about Alexa on the other thread. She´s a hot ass mess and we´re gonna leave it at that.

  • Beaten by a slap… wtf.

  • Kicking out of Chick Kick and Lita’s Moonsault, but losing to a slap delivered by.. I am disgusted with how weak Mickie’s been booked since returning. She was a gutsy underdog who never gave up, but these days she’s losing to the ugliest DDTs and wacky punches.

  • Hoooshi

    I didn’t watch it live, so when I saw the reactions on the other post I thought “oh well, maybe it’s just the DD hate hive mind kicking in”, but no, this was bad. Alexa won with a slap like this was Big Show’s KO punch, how is this possible? I know that wrestling is suspension of disbelief, but this is too much. If she had played that “pretend she’s injured and wins” stunt it would still be better than this.

    Alexa is the new AJ Lee down to every single detail, except AJ could at least put a decent showing on her first reign (we can all agree her heart wasn’t there during her last months). Remember how AJ beat every single Total Diva and their only solution was to bring Paige? Well, I see they’re doing the same here. Alexa will beat every single woman until Asuka confronts her. The ring might implode when those two face because whose push will prevail?

    • KatyaMenelli

      But even AJ had to cheat against certain opponents(Brie, Natalya, Naomi) because while she did bury the whole division, there were still women she couldn’t beat in title matches without help or illegal tactics. With Alexa, no one is safe!

  • The promo makes it seem like Mickie and Alexa still are not finished.

    • AlexV

      Either they’re putting it on hold for Survivor Series or not. I don’t think they are because that promo definitely implied MJ is keeping on, but I feel like even if she does… it’s LayCool all over again. Why does WWE like picking on her? I’m so over this bullying shit! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5ec5f45f451d811b5b18f0b42b1e11f88f50818e052406c45eefbcc86f0e059f.gif

      how will Mickie keep getting title shots though? It’s hard for her to argue one when she’s lost twice cleanly to Alexa. She has no credibility left and that’s not even an exaggeration. Losing to a punch? A joke.

      I hope the feud continues though until the Mickie wins the title but I’m not seeing how Mickie can realistically get another title shot through storyline. Unless of course Kurt just wants to be generous and wants Alexa to lose the title.

      • Not even a punch; a FUCKING SLAP! -_-

  • GOD STRATUS•

    ???? so few things turns out Sasha’s raw talk interview was a shoot which is probably why they scrapped the promo segments with bliss due to her potential annihilation of bliss and her would be credibility … Truth is ppl I know you guys say bliss doesn’t book herself news flash what do you think politiking is? Lobbying for votes and tearing down your opponents and if you bliss stand really think that she had NO hand in the way she’s made these other women look … Well honey I’ve got news for you. Just as sure as the government is shady as hell rn so is WWE wake up bitches or WE WILL be back to 4 min matches with NO entrances …. & You can BANK on that.

    • Hoooshi

      I don’t think we’ll come back to 4 min matches (at least not in the near future) but we won’t advance either, we’ll stay as things are now… Boring.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Darlin you don’t have to think in this matter. It’s already happening. From WM 32 where THE WOMEN we’re the topic to…. Now ….. It’s happened factor in the commercial breaks for God sake

        • Hoooshi

          It’s definitely not like 2011… Yet.

    • AlexV

      Do you have a link of this? Sasha’s shoot? Or are you referring to the one she did several weeks ago where she basically told the truth about Alexa? Don’t get me wrong, I dislike Sasha’s attitude sometimes, but I admire her passion for the business.

    • AlexV

      Not at all. They just did a press conference with Vince and Triple H where they’ve seen revenue and success in womens storylines and their overall contribution. The market is growing and evolving, so we might get the 4 minute matches as some of the guys have too, but we will keep getting full blown storylines hopefully, we need better writers or less politics backstage. I think Lita implied she got let go last year because she fought a little too hard for the ladies. Damn shame.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        You just confirmed my point much appreciated

        • AlexV

          Halfway atleast? The women are selling merchandise and bringing in viewers and new markets, so YES, they will get 4 minute matches probably, but still multiple segments and ongoing storylines with big stipulation matches. You’re right about politics though, this is why I said I believe Lita got let go last year.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            The women have ALWAYS brought in viewers and the fact that your okay with a 4 min match concludes our banter.

          • KatyaMenelli

            Right! Even back then, the women brought in viewers.

  • Maddox

    Three spots remaining. Is Asuka and Mickie are to take two spots, who takes the third? Is Sasha or Bayley likely to miss out on the PPV?

    • sleeper11

      If they plan to make Mickie champion then the last 3 spots go to Sasha, Bayley, and Asuka.

      • AlexV

        Or have Alexa, Sasha and Bayley and have Asuka fight in her own match representing the RAW brand, against maybe Carmella or Lana? She’d no doubt kill Lana, but Tamina could be in her corner to balance things out.

      • Maddox

        And if they don’t plan to make her Champ as evidenced by last nights show? Doubt Alexa will miss out on the PPV

        • sleeper11

          i was just basing it off the backstage fallout.

    • Organization XIII

      I think Bayley is gonna miss being on the team after last night

      • Michael Max

        They can really use it to push a Bayley and Alicia feud, have her put down Bayley for losing saying she doesn’t deserve to be on the team ext. then maybe she can beat Alicia to get a spot on the team right before the PPV.

        • KatyaMenelli

          They should definitely do this!! Ugh, but it’s WWE so they’re not that smart at all.

    • Hoooshi

      I can see Alicia saying Bayley can’t be in the team since she didn’t beat Nia. This or someone will be attacked like Team SD last year.

  • Kvngbalor

    Bliss has the looks the charisma just not the in ring skills and stop acting like her mic work is just superior it’s hit & miss great facial expressions cute one liners but she’s no AJ she’s no Ivory she’s no Trish she’s no Stephanie she’s no Melina she’s descent Summer was more convincing she’s practically mini Charlotte as far as booking goes

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Somebody told me …. That she was in the same convo as Steph aj Trish and laycool as far as greatest mic workers …. OF ALL TIME…. a bliss fan said that …. Sure did.

      • Izzy4lw

        I never considered Laycool to be top mic workers, but I was still surprised that people were entertaining her being a top 5 mic workr with AJ/Trish/Steph/Vicki/Mickie/Ivory/Melina having all been killing it in the past 2 decades

        • GOD STRATUS•

          Laycool are better versions of the Bella’s as far as mic skills so yeah they’re dam good

      • That’s different; Gail was concussed and forgot the finish. She turned her head to sell the kick, but didn’t fall.

        • Izzy4lw

          can we just say that Gail is a queen for knocking herself out and still trying to finish the match? legend.

    Whats the point of last weeks segment if they gonna end the feud this week?
    And.. It really frustrates to see Alexa perform garbage in all these opportunities she gets. One day, she performs good, the next day she performs garbage and then every other time she barely performs at all.

    • TheDarkShaw

      you’ve got female performers better then her ( who have proven to deliver in main events before ) and they are given nothing to do. Bliss gets a pass from people for these lack luster matches and im sick of it… wildly inconsistent

      • Exotic

        I stan her but its just hard for me to stick up for her if she gonna perform like this each and every time. I want to blame booking but at the same time, shes hardly stepping up her game. If she was improving from every match to match, then I’d have no complaints but like you said, shes inconsistent.

        • TheDarkShaw

          Every… single… damn match she has ends with some type of flat ass finish. Bell to Bell she’s just not complete enough ( which is startling considering how they push her ).

          At least with Sasha Banks for example. She doesn’t have to be someone’s favorite here, but bell to bell as a performer I can at least expect her to deliver and she’ll make good on that ( which is something to be respected ). If a match starts with a so-so crowd, she fips them around by the end.

          I truly think ( and I thought this on SD too ) that Bliss should have developed more in the ring before getting this kind of push. We can talk about promos all we want but when it comes to to come up clutch in the ring… she’s either wildly inconsistent or just falls flat.

          • Exotic

            Yeah. I don’t like Sasha but I always look forward to watch her perform. I love Alexa, but I always
            PRAY that after the match no one tugs on her hair strands lmao.
            SD was doing her wonders IMO, its a shame bad booking led her own fans to consider revoking their stancards.

  • Kvngbalor

    They have no idea what their doing with Asuka it’s so obvious the entrance is cringe worthy that long ass pause the mask sits there for 30 secs before her music comes on it looks botchy she’s dancing a bit harder now they want to book her in squash matches the fans aren’t into this is everything we knew would happen and feared

  • sleeper11

    Last week was one of the best RAWs but it all came crashing down this week. Emma getting fired was hard to swallow alone, but watching Mickie lose to a stupid punch was just the cherry on top for a crappy week. The women’s revolution is a straight up lie.

    • Kurt

  • ???

    I don’t know why people say Alexa’s reign resembles AJ Lee’s reign? AJ’s matches were never been this horrible, she was putting up good or at least decent matches .. WWE didn’t bury the women with AJ Lee as much as they did with Alexa .

    Asuka facing local competitors idea became stale and nothing special about it at all , they already used it with Nia so this will not benefit her at all .

    • Michael Max

      As far as going over all the women, AJ definitely did that she beat every woman on the roster multiple times and then did it all at once at Wrestlemania lol

      • ???

        But she never ended the match with such a horrible finisher like Alexa’s .. at least AJ was way more entertaining while Alexa’s matches are so damn boring omg

        • sleeper11

          yeah the black widow was a legit finishing move, very hard to escape from.

          • ???

            This is what I meant !

            Sure she defeated every single diva at that time , but at least the matches were decent to good ..

        • Michael Max

          Oh No I agree, honestly my only comparisons between Alexa and AJ is their size, and that they’re both booked so strongly and often matches are booked badly poorly representing their size differences to their opponent like this math with Mickie.

          • KatyaMenelli

            But even then, They were people she had to defeat by cheating or doing underhanded tactics(Brie, Natalya, Naomi). Alexa is literally beating everyone clean!!!

          • Michael Max

            Very true, she was generally booked better match wise than Alexa. Her character is taking a hit honestly by her winning the way she has, if shes a bitch and beats everyone cleanly and is right with her words who wins? There’s no narrative there.

          • KatyaMenelli

            Thank you!!! Finally someone that has a brain up here.

      AJ defeated every single Total Diva to the point no one else had any credibility (because the non TD Divas never had any to begin with), her pipebomb didn’t have any response by the others, she beat the entire roster at WM30. And her wrestling was meh during her last reign, the only reason she winning over and over again seemed ok was because she had a submission she could “lock out of nowhere”.

      • Izzy4lw

        which oddly mirrors Alexa’s reign. She has bulldozed every single babyface she has feuded with and left them with absolutely no credibility as a title contender (Sasha/Bayley/Becky/Mickie immediately come to mind) or she has made others look so stupid you don’t believe they’d ever even WANT to challenge for the title (Nia Jax) – the only woman left on the entire Raw roster who could feasibly challenge for the title now is Asuka, which is the exact same as AJ “tiny girl beats everyone, new talent coming up from NXT saves the day” it’s literally AJ Lee 2.0, except AJ wrestled to her body type and build (a crafty, smart heel who bides her time and will tie you up in her submission to win) while Alexa is 5 foot nothing and wrestles women like she’s Beth Phoenix, as seen last night when she KO’d Mickie with her slap of doom.

        • Hoooshi

          And even then WWE managed to screw up the angle by turning a badass anti-diva Paige into a rookie who was afraid of AJ, I wouldn’t be surprised if Alexa defeats Asuka too. That DDT + slap combo is too damn powerful.

          • Izzy4lw

            legitimately Asuka losing to Bliss would destroy my soul. like… I’d have to stop watching RAW while I mourn the division. Asuka has gotten a slow start so far, so hopefully next week she kicks Alexa’s face into the back of her head to kickstart their feud or something.

          • Hoooshi

            I think they will extend the Bliss/Mickie feud until SS and will start the Asuka/Bliss feud after it. I just don’t see who will end the year as champion.

          • Izzy4lw

            At this point extending the feud is only doing Mickie a disservice. “Mickie is old/she’s a has been” etc etc – this feud has cemented that. Mickie can’t afford another loss at this point. I’d rather she move into the elimination match storyline tbh. Let Alexa marinate in a swamp these next couple weeks until SS – Because WWE will try and build up both Alexa and Natalya for the matches, and they can’t keep sacrificing Mickie’s credibility via clean losses for the daunting task of trying to make the crowd and the audience think Alexa is actually a threat in the ring.

        • She now has two moves of doom. She’s coming for John Cena’s gig!

          • Izzy4lw

            Truly, John Cena is shook. Asuka is afraid. Kairi Sane is considering an early retirement. Ember Moon is trying to renegotiate her contract to always be on the opposite show as her. She has the women’s lockeroom SHOOKETH.

          • I’m not even excited about a potential feud with Asuka oops. I’m at the point where I want all my faves, be it Asuka or Charlotte, to stay as far away from her as possible.

          • Gerg

    I love how people are only recently finding out about how basic Alexa is in the ring. And when she was on Smackdown the smarks who know nothing about wrestling were praising her boring ass, lackluster matches with Becky Lynch. LOL. I’m always right. Can’t wait for you guys to turn on those overrated messes Billie Kay and Peyton Royce too, once they get on the main roster and showcase their basic wresting skills they’ll be exposed too.

      I noticed it when she was fighting Becky, but I didn’t think she’d win the fued and I mean she’s entertaining and funny and a great heel, but she shouldn’t always be winning otherwise this happens, people turn on her.

  • tstumo

    So Nia coming back was cool I suppose. People aren’t giving her props for actually doing that roll thing she did (senton) and then following it up with an aggressive leg drop. My biggest issue with Nia was how she moved in the ring and seeing how she ended that match gave me much hope going forward. She’s coming off really good despite the tired matchup. And poor Bayley as usual. Moving on

    The “main event”…. no words. I won’t even mention it last because it doesn’t deserve that.

    And people are giving Asuka a hard time when all of the recent women NXT call ups have been the exact same, with them having to “earn” being over. Carmella, Nia, and Alexa come to mind. And Carmella still struggling with that. And Dana… yeah. So it’s going to take some time for the “casuals” to catch on. The first batch of NXT women (3hw) caught on early due to the way they were called up and when with the whole faction thing.

    I love Alexa and all, but Mickie deserves to be the Women’s champ. No other wanna be can do it like she can. She’s a natural heel and even better baby face! No one in the Women’s division can even compare to the level of talent, freshness, and charisma that she brings?? One of the many reasons she truly is the greatest entertainer and one of the greatest women’s champ. None of these girls deserve her or are worthy of her presence!?

      • #FlairfortheGold

        No boo boo, Mickie is on a level of her own. James does not deserve to be playing with these girls. She deserves so much better. She doesn’t have to bitch about stuff when they don’t go her way because at the end of the day, she knows it’s not always gonna be her time. Even if she’s involved in atrocious storylines like the Piggy James one or the Old lady one, she’s not gonna go around and talk shit or be like “yea I was so upset” because at the end of the day, she knows she’s better than that and her accolades speak for themselves. Sasha is not the second coming of Trish as you like to make her seem. That spot is reserved for another talented individual who even through hard times, has chosen to stick around and keep those thoughts to herself, like a true professional

  • Sable’s Bumps

    i read that the “real” main event is around 10pm because ratings drop off after that. thats why the ending of the show has been going to the cruiserweights and women.

  • IconicTrio

    Its down to personal opinion but I think Alicia’s role on monday worked, they emphasised the point she was team captain and is “picking” the team mates and scouting matches, plus when’s the last time Foxy sounded that good on mic?

    Bayley’s not faring too well right now but not everyone can get pushed beyond and tbh some changes need to happen with her character.

    Alexa’s booking is horrid, yes book her strong but not at the expense of the entire face roster. The faces have been made a total fool of by her, no wonder she garners more rapturoud responses these days.

    Nia looked strong, good!

    I hope something gives for Mickie, I really do.

    P.S – why is Tamina still employed when Emma isn’t? why hasn’t Dana been sent back to NXT? (she’s worth salvaging but atm she sucks)

    • Diva_Fan

      Tamina is still employed because of who her dad is . Plus she’s SD’s only Women powerhouse atm .

  • Victoria&Melina19

    The squash match was a waste of time. Hopefully Asuka isnt the team cos that would basically mean team RAW wins…once again. But then u have Nia on the team now and they probably don’t wanna make the same mistake they made last year.

    Then the main event…….yeah no words. Just waiting on Mickie to win the title the next match they have if they really cont Nue the feud after survivor series.

  • DivaLicious?

    That match was so horrible that the crowd started to chant ? CM PUNK

    Alexa bliss is just god awful in the ring. All she do is head locks, any kind of submissions etc.. she is not worthy of a main event spot. I was literally bored half to death? And Mickie looked weak after getting pinned by a weak looking knock punch by a female that is smaller than her????? We all know this is just a side feud though. I knew Mickie was never gonna win anyway.

    I just pray?? asuka don’t fall victim of bad booking in the next 3months. I have a feeling Vince really wanna shock the WWE universe sooner than later, with asuka losing to a DDT by Vince golden child Alexa bliss.

    Alicia foxx was cringeworthy again last night. I just can’t wait until after SS so I can proved everybody right. Once Alicia foxx is irrelevant again. Nia jax senton into bayley into a leg drop was cool. She needs to make that her new combo finisher.

    • ???

      Girl , I love you ! Your using of emojis are just so funny and entertaining to watch xD !!!

    • ???

      I agree about how horrible the match was , I don’t understand why they keep putting Alexa multiple times in the main event ? Every time she main event the match becomes horrible !

      Just like someone said below , Alexa is booked just like she’s Beth Phoenix like WTF? Mickie James the woman who beats Beth Phoenix, Victoria, Melina , Trish Stratus , Lita loses the title to Alexa two times in a row ?? And nooo I’m not mad about her retaining I’m mad about how terrible her finisher was like … Foramen finish for a MAIN EVENT ?? ??

      I’m really now nervous about Asuka , Alexa beats a legend and made her looks like a joke .. and she completely destroyed 3/4 of the HW

      And you know what ? I will not be surprised if Asuka is Alexa’s next victim , but if Asuka is defeated by Bliss I will be officially done with WWE and with their horrible booking .

    • Dan Eather

      Asuka is going to be jobbing to Foxy by April of next year and I can’t wait. Asuka is cringe and boring cantbspeak English and has a shitty finisher.

    Have Mickie talk to Kurt that she’ll face Alexa for the very last time, have Alexa agree to the last match and tell Mickie that if she will lose again, Mickie will retire already.
    Mickie defeats Alexa.
    Alexa takes a break to have some time in the training center.
    Mickie and Nia feud.
    Sasha and Bayley feud.

      Keep Nia far far far away from any women holding the title
      While your at it send her with her bff to the PC also

      Im sorry i just can not get into nia jax at all she bores me & very basic

  • Diva_Fan

    I really thought Mickie stood a chance of winning being as it was the Main Event and the title seems to always change on RAW when the women are the Main Event so I was disappointed when she didn’t . I do like Alexa but I really am getting tired of her as champion and the fact that she’s pretty much ran through the majority of the Women’s division despite not that great in the ring .

          Definitely. That’s their loss. Either way she still young isn’t it? She could get a WWE spot down the line. Who knows?

          • MK126

            She’s 22 so yeah there’s still time.

    • Izzy4lw

      I’m not surprised TBH – I heard initially the WWE was really trying to pick her up and sign her, but rumors started floating around that her attitude backstage angered management and they decided not to pursue her. Dunno how true that is, but I can’t see any other reason why they wouldn’t sign her. She kinda looks like Victoria circa 2002 and can really wrestle.

      • MK126

        I hate that “backstage attitude” rumor cause if you don’t have a cocky arrogance about yourself then there’s a problem. If she was rude to management then maybe but if she thinks highly of herself then she should! Her match with Kairi was one of THE BEST throughout the entire tournament!

        • Izzy4lw

          There was no specifics on what the ‘attitude’ encompassed, but if romrs are to be believed (which, let’s be honest, you have to take with a grain of salt) then she must have said the wrong thing to the wrong person.

        • I’ve also heard she’s a bully.

          • MK126

            So are half of the dudes in the locker room but yet theyre still employed lol

      • Mr. What

        Givd her couple more years she will be thick like Victoria.

  • #FlairfortheGold

    Y’all need to learn the difference between a slap and forearm because that was a forearm…idiots

    • Izzy4lw

      from a 95 lb 5 foot human. If my 12 year old cousin forearmed me I would not be knocked out. Just pissed. I could barely believe that as a legitimate finishing move on Nikki Bella, a 5’6″ “powerhouse” I’m not about to give Alexa a pass.

      • MK126

        Nah Nikki’s always looked stiff AF

        • Izzy4lw

          yeah but It’s just hard for me to look at a forearm and go “yep. that’ll finish a match” meanwhile they’ve spent the entire match getting DDT’d, suplexed, and slammed all over the place. Its just a bad move to finish a match with is all.

          • MK126

            Yeah I understand what you mean

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Not always tbh

        • Monkey Tennis

          Nooooope.

        • Rodney Holston

          That one Nattie ate a couple years ago was beautiful

          • MK126

            Same with Naomi during the Backlash 6 pack challenge. The one she gave Brie during her match with Steph was stiff

      • #FlairfortheGold

        Then don’t lol not like she’s asking for your pass anyway and neither was Nikki.

        Btw, nice avi! I’m personally pissed Toni isn’t signed and that they decided to sign Pam’s brother instead, but anyways ?????

        • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

          Bayley got a brother?

      • wysna

        Actually, what annoys me even most is the fact that Alexa can do a shit ton of athletic things in the ring. Yes, she’s not an amazing wrestler but she can make herself look deadly at the very least and some genius decided to end this match–WITH MICKIE JAMES NO LESS–with a forearm?

        • Izzy4lw

          My issue with Alexa lies solely in the fact that she has no ring psychology at all, so her matches are just a sequence of moves that tell no story and don’t serve to get the crowd invested; and the fact that somewhere, someone thought it’d be a great idea to saddle her with the absolute WORST finishers in all of WWE. a create a wrestler DDT and a forearm? She could use a variation of Melina’s last call, turn her DDT into a tilt-a-whirl- or a myriad of other things that would at least look impressive and would put a stamp on the end of her matches. Instead, we get boring matches with no story, and a boring ending.

          • KatyaMenelli

            Right! She uses a sunset flip powerbomb and a standing moonsault knee drop in a match, but she decides to end the match with a forearm!? C’mon on!

      • wwepassion

        Size has nothing to do with with a powerful punch. Small doesn’t mean weak big doesn’t mean strong ALL the time. Alexa is a power lifter

    • Winter

      LOOOOOL here come the excuses

      • #FlairfortheGold

        Girl what are you blind? Any person with even minimum can see that’s a forearm, not a slap…dumabass

  • Cilla

    And Shovelexa Bliss’ reign of terror continues…

  • WweLover726

    So after seeing the Raw fallout so you think Mickie and Alexa fued will continue?? I HOPE SO MICKOE NEEDS THAT TITLE MORE THAN EVER

    • ???

      I want Mickie to win , but no after that weak finisher no she doesn’t have any chances left .

  • TheDarkShaw

    Even if one didn’t like booking aspects, Sasha and Charlotte always delivered great matches in the main event. Alexa Bliss can’t do that, bell to bell she’s not that great…

    And all her title matches always have weak and flat finishes that get weak reaction. Because when your ending your matches with normal DDT’s and plain forearm’s that make Kenta Kobashi laugh you get a flat reaction!

  • Monkey Tennis

    It’s all gone Pete Tong. Not that it was in great shape to start with. But even by WWE’s standards, this was just one fail after another.

    So, after the ludicrous release of one of the rosters most talented and charismatic women, the salt is rubbed deep into the wound right from the outset with the return of Nia Jax. Who remains a void of personality, a one-note gimmick that isn’t even a consistent one (She’s a powerhouse… sometimes) and who continues to bore her way through matches with no sign of any real emotion. Seriously, look at Brawn when he comes out. Forget his size, what puts him over is the intensity. Nia doesn’t have anything approaching that. She’s just… there.

    Next up, Asuka. And when it comes to making a rod for it’s own back, the WWE are experts in that field. Let’s be honest, a winning streak in Sports Entertainment is kind of a waste of time anyway. Sure, you could argue that title reigns are equally meaningless but that’s part of the story. People win ’em, people lose ’em, that’s how it goes. But a streak has to be a constant, at least until it’s broken. And the longer is goes, the bigger a deal it has to be to end it… but at the same time, the longer it goes, the harder it is to sustain it.

    NXT just about got away with it, because they put the title on Asuka pretty early. That way, they could just keep her out of the way except for the occasional title match. Now though, Asuka’s back in the pack… So what do they do with her? If she feuds with anyone, it can only be one way. If she has a title match, does she win it first time out? Or does her streak end even before getting the belt?

    So three weeks since her debut on the main roster and the WWE are already being forced to spin their wheels. Asuka has two matches with Emma to ‘make her mark’. And now what? Jobbers of he week until after Summer Slam? Or one sided feud with… who, Dana? Creative need to do something to fix the problem that is Asuka’s streak and they need to do it before they successfully suck all the momentum from yet another NXT star.

    As for Alexa and Mickie. Again, this was just passing the time. Filling a gap before the Summerslam build starts more earnestly, presumably next week.

    • MK126

      You mean Survivor Series right… not SummerSlam?

      • Monkey Tennis

        Ah yeah… Wrong alliteration!

        • MK126

          LOL oh ok cause you were saying SummerSlam as if November isn’t tomorrow xD

  • Cilla

    That jobber’s attire was way to similar to Emma’s for it to be a coincidence, especially when she’s facing the same opponent.

    • KatyaMenelli

      Yea, I know. They did that on purpose. I don’t care what anyone says.

  • ??LUIGI??
  • Nicola Byrne

    I’m really bored of Alexa already please give the title to someone else

  • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

    I can’t take Mickie losing to Alexa clean again. If you aren’t letting Mickie hit lucky number 7 then STOP.

  • Aye Mate

    For a main event, this was pretty disgraceful.

  • Nikki’s Sister

    The only person taking that title off Alexa is Asuka and she’s in the middle of being built up. Not successfully but still.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    Mickie is not winning that title ever people stop being deluded! Alexa queen b she gets reactions more than all the woman, Nia was quick as fuck rolling around that ring, Asuka was a mess but will be slaying Alexa soon enough. Quit worrying and getting all worked up yall weak as bitches get some real drama in ya life

    • WweLover726

      Alexa does not get the best reaction of all the women .. Sasha does

      • NoWayHoeSay

        Sasha a face and Alexa a heel tho?

    • Mickie’sNumber1fan

      Honey check your ears because Sasha Banks gets the loudest pop. Have several seats before you wanna come here talking crap like you know any better so shut up

      • NoWayHoeSay

        Sometimes it’s alexa sometimes it’s sasha. Mickie ain’t winning shit tho boo

    • Moan of ‘Licia

      Literally felt so much second hand embarrassment reading this.

      • Aye Mate

        At least you were able to read it.

      • NoWayHoeSay

        Ur a foxy Stan so your opinion is irrelevant

    • Match of Year Maker

      The woman who gets more reactions and pops from the crowd is Sasha Banks to be honest, listen to crowd when she enters in any arena

  • Shady Won ?

    The worst part about Alexa is that she’s a heel that not only tears credibility by winning matches with the most weak yet squeaky clean finishes and is not good enough in the ring to provide a good beatdown in her matches, but she also tears down characters by talking shit, and never getting hit.

    -She says Becky is a one hit wonder, proves it by putting her through two tables
    -She says Bayley is a weak girl and can’t get extreme, proves it by wacking her with a kendo stick and beating her in a few mins
    -She says Sasha can’t defend her championship, proves it by getting her title back in record time
    -She says Mickie is an old lady and can’t keep up with her, proves it by beating her clean twice by a weak DDT and an even lackluster forearm

    This way no one’s getting over as a threat or looks good in defeat. The only time just a SLIGHT chance of looking good in defeat was Mickie after her loss at TLC with that heartfelt interview but they took it all away and much more last night when she lost to the weakest strikes to a woman with 1/3 of her experience

    • Moan of ‘Licia

      Spot on, girly.

    • Gerg

      Got that right. I give it a year when the majority gets tired of her. Hate it when Wwe shoves people down our throat.

      • John Finnie

        A year people are bored with her reign already

    • Aye Mate

      Personally, I think Alexa’s the weakest in-ring wrestler on RAW after Dana Brooke but I would have zero problem with her spot if her matches were just booked more carefully. Booking a dominant champion works if you’re physically imposing like Charlotte or Nia; it works if you’re methodical like Asuka or Natalya; it also works if you’re ruthless like a heel Sasha. But when you’re somewhat limited as Alexa, logic would dictate that the intelligent way to go would be to play up to dirty tactics. It’s a shame because the division has suffered with the uneven booking, and not even the great character work between Alexa and Mickie up until now can really excuse the disappointing match they had last night.

    • Seraphina Rosenhart

      You’re right but I don’t think it’s Alexa’s fault at all. It’s the creative team and their booking that needs to be blamed.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        She has a hand in her own politiking. Don’t be blind

        • #FlairfortheGold

          You’re truly an idiot if you think she does. Who is she sucking up to? Because If so, then maybe your girl should do it. That way she stops bitching about not having the title long enough

        • Seraphina Rosenhart

          She isn’t doing anything wrong. She’s just making use of the opportunities the creative team is giving her. If I was working for WWE, and they were offering me title reigns like the ones she’s gotten, I’d take them in a heartbeat even if I suck at wrestling. It’s creative’s fault for not booking people properly, not hers for just using what she’s been given.

          • John Finnie

            & have the entire division hate you because your happy to bury talent who are so much better

          • Seraphina Rosenhart

            But once again, shouldn’t the creative team be blamed for that? She isn’t making the storyline decisions. They are.

          • John Finnie

            Creative team & writers & trainers who tell the women to not use their full potential on the MR are c u next tuesday…. ofcourse they are to blame they work late into the night….. Then have to get to juniour school b4 9am lol

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Using opportunities? Hmm someone told me she had a cage match that I still can’t for the life of me remember a highlight or a tables match or this past main event. So it’s okay to politik and hold the other women back bc…..? Stacy kiebler bless her heart is a woman I can respect. Who knew she wasn’t the best and knew how hard those other women were fighting at the time … Smh anyway you confirmed my point in the process thanks

    • Troy Smith

      She’s the new chosen one. I’ve been saying it for over a month now. Within 1 year, Alexa will pin Asuka. It’s still Vince McMahon’s company and since the early 90s his top woman has always been the pretty blond. The only exceptions being Nikki and AJ. Nikki is the top guys girlfriend and AJ was lightning in a bottle that couldn’t be ignored.

      • John Finnie

        Add Lita, & Candice Michelle to the list hell even Melina & Mickie james
        But yes hes still looking for a trish who he thought was the total package & she was for WWE
        Its a new era its not blondes but weaves & hair dye lol

        • Troy Smith

          It’s always been a blonde as the top women since the 90s. Alundra, Sunny, Sable, Trish, Then they tried and failed with Beth, McCool, Kelly Kelly. Then You had AJ and Nikki and now it’s back to business as usual.

          • John Finnie

            Trish only got the top spot because A* her work effict B* Lita was out for over a year
            Lita was meant to take the title from jazz eventually & be paired with RVD it was in a wwf raw wwf/ smackdown or poweralam magazine
            If lita never broke her neck a writer has came out and said the plan was for lita to be a 6x champ
            She was the no 10 draft pick the only female in the top 10

            Lita was full of bad luck

      • wwepassion

        Nikki had to work for her spot and earned it, Aj had to work with top guys to make a name for herself and eventually made a name for herself and ran with it. Aj is like Alexa can’t wrestle but can talk.

  • Bliss = Goddess

    It takes 2 to tango and let’s not forget they had a good match at TLC people overreact to everything

    WWE is smart and they will leave the belt on bliss until Asuka beats her

  • Kristina Buford

    Just get the title off Alexa. She is good on the mic, but I just dread watching her matches now. There really is no spark/excitement to them. You just know they will make it finish in some way to co pletely ruin any credibility of any challenger for the title.

    Alexa vs Natalya…god help me. I want them to succeed and kill it, but…I feel like it’s just going to fall flat badly with the crowd and people will use it as a piss break.

    Samoa Joe coming out rIgor after Nia Jax return definitely downplayed her return badly. Now I fucking love Samoa Joe and he definitely one of the best and so glad t see him continuing as a monster heel, but I wish they spaced those returns out. Made Nia feel not so special.

    • KatyaMenelli

      And I hate that it’s happening to such an awesome and model work like Natalya. She has been with the division through thick and thin, seeing less or inexperienced girls get put over her for years to it all coming back again.

  • Moan of ‘Licia

    Talking about Mickie being one to blame when she’s got a whole career to prove her superiority.

    • Izzy4lw

      Who is blaming Mickie? She is the legend. The icon. The queen. And her resume of work speaks volumes.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Alexa fans are

    • Aye Mate

      Yup, it’s Mickie’s fault that a woman who’s now a four time champion can’t keep up the pace in the ring.

  • The fact that Harley has only had TWO passable matches during her time on the main roster (mainly because Sasha and Mickie carried her up and down the arena to do it) should go to show just how mediocre her wrestling skills really are (and let’s be honest; even calling her skills mediocre is giving her too much credit). I will never understand why twinks stan for her so hard.

    • KatyaMenelli

      My point exactly!

    • Match of Year Maker

      Facts

  • 3???????

    Boring show, boring matches , boring champion ?????

  • 3???????

    They hyped asuka and yet she’s facing jobbers ? What ?

  • Ryan Stratus

    I can see where this fued is being put on hold. I don’t think it’s the end quite yet. Alexa is telling Mickie to give up during her back stage segment. She’s definitely not done.

    • KatyaMenelli

      Like how she ended up beating beth? Uh-uh, no thanks. Beth made it look believable. Alexa doesn’t

  • Ryan Stratus

    For the record.. The more you D ride Alexa, the longer she will be champion. Y’all are too invested for them to want to take the title off of her. Seems to me she’s doing her job lovely.

    • KatyaMenelli

      No she’s not. We want the title off of her for ALL THE WRONG REASONS, dumbass.

      • Ryan Stratus

        yes you want the title off of her for all of the WRONG reasons. Thanks for proving my point “dumb ass” ?? *NEXT CALLER*

        • KatyaMenelli

          Yes, Wrong reasons, meaning can’t wrestle, the literal fundamentals of the company, the product, everything!! If there is anywhere you should performing at your best, it should be in that ring, Stupid ass. LOL you didn’t know? Yo ass better be the one to call someboddeeeeyyyyY!!!!

          • Ryan Stratus

            She can’t wrestle but yet she’s the forefront of Raws women’s division. Don’t blame her for being “Vince’s girl”. Blame her incredible mic and in ring skills. It seems you’re quite delusional and it’s only a matter of time when Alexa makes history (yet again) & you cry like a little hatin ass bitch actin all fraudulent. Speak on itttttttt ????

          • KatyaMenelli

            Don’t quote New York. You’re not worthy of that for supporting a bitch making history with her tragic ass wrestling skills meanwhile women like Sasha, Bayley, and Alicia are more than deserving. And if your retarded ass didn’t see my last comment, I AM BLAMING HER FOR HER WRESTLING SKILLS…or lack thereof.

          • Ryan Stratus

            Zont zo it fefe. Bitch why yoooou mad?! Alexa has you prest and I’ll quote whomever whenever ??????? Alexa could out wrestle all those women. Eat shit and climb up out my
            Notifications ?? Pumkin.

          • KatyaMenelli

            LOL Delusional af Alexa couldn’t wrestle her way out of a paperbag. And you say you’ve been watching wrestling for years? LMFAO Bitch where?

          • KatyaMenelli

            Forefront because she’s white, slim, and blonde which is Vince’s wet dream. Nothing else besides debatable mic skills in which have fell off the past few months. And what’s bad is that she’s not even TRYING to get better in the ring when she clearly needs it.

          • Ryan Stratus

            Oh you’re throwing race into it now. You’re ignorant, bothered & unrealistic. Consider this the last chat we have as you’re currently. Clock’d and blocked. Bye you hatin ass bitch ??

          • KatyaMenelli

            It’s a fact. That’s why I’m throwing race into it, you inconsiderate, unrealistic, retarded piece of shit. You’re mad because I only say facts and you can only say what your Bliss fans say. I used to be a fan of hers, but she has devalued the division and a cancer to it. Bye fatso.

  • conan_kun

    At this point I may see Asuka losing to Alexa by just one DDT or even one punch or slap, when she’s the only one who kicked out of Ember’s The Eclipse.

    I almost thought that Joe going to feud with Nia or he is Alicia’s 2nd pick of her Survivor Series team when his music hit. Hope Bayley is still laying out in the ring and see how Joe gonna do when he enters the ring

      She’s as big as he is- she should have body blocked him or smashed into him walking past or something. Instead she just stood there. I wanted to be like ‘GIRL DON’T LET HIM STEAL YOUR MOMENT YOU BETTER DO SOMETHING’

      Buuuuuuuuut it just ended up being more of the men barging into women’s segments just to do it.

  • conan_kun

    With Emma’s popularity, she don’t have to worry that she couldn’t find other other promotion as there’s some talents outside WWE recommend her to join

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Alexa is pretty much another AJ Lee! Promos will hype the feud but the matches will kill it.

    • Women’s Revolution

      AJ Lee backed it ALL UP in her feud with Kaitlyn at Payback. One of the greatest rivalries from the Divas Era that was dying

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        That’s just one match she slayed. After that no!

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      AJ was way better though. Her selling was on point and her submissions actually made sense considering her size and weight.

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I will say selling wise she did that! But when she used to do the Black Widow that shit didn’t make sense at times. Like some of the divas would tap out too quickly to give her a win.

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Yeah, I agree I didn’t like majority of her black widow transitions. Especially the lazy ones where she literally just sat on them. I liked the tilt a whirl Black Widows. It’s clear that AJ got lazy at one point but even then she wrestled better than Alexa.

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            I think she got tired of the same old diva stuff every week. You can tell when the Total Divas vs True Divas she started to not give AF. When Paige came around she got happy again cuz it was something refreshing. But after she lost the title to Nikki she was over it again.

  • Women’s Revolution

    Alexa Bliss defeated Bayley, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, Emma, and Mickie James. She went through the whole roster except Alicia Fox, who deserves to be in the spotlight with the competition and Dana Brooke, but we know they’re just there to put the listed above over.

    It’s obvious Asuka is next in line. The Empress will defeat the Goddess and Undefeated Streak will continue….

    I didn’t like RAW at all from the Women.
    Nia Jax came back fast and the match vs. Bayley was a snooze. Alicia Fox wasn’t entertaining as usual…
    Alexa Bliss cheap shots weren’t really called for. I think they did that for cheap heat. I don’t blame her at all. The match against Mickie James wasn’t a Main Event at all…
    Asuka squashing an Emma clone wasn’t necessary and not doing her favors. They’ve already ruined her.
    NO SASHA BANKS!!! Could that have been the reason for the snooze fest last night????

    • GOD STRATUS•

      You better believe it

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Sasha brings the fire in matches and segments. That’s why I love her.

    • Aye Mate

      About ten bonds of recycled pelt.

  • Allyn

    I was still upset and sad over Emma’s release but I decided to watch raw nonetheless GIRL!!!! why did I do that!?!? the Nia Bailey match was OK and the asuka squash match no thanks!!!!!why are we still even doing those matches and then the finish with Alexa and Mickie!!! lord that was just a shit storm waiting to happen, slap finish??? I want to know who on this creative team told Alexa to go out there and slap her, pin her and then end the match. Because they need to be slapped themselves. Alexa and Mickey did not deserve that, it did nothing for them.

  • Dan Eather

    Alicia fox was solid on the mic I don’t know what the writer is talking about, what ever Foxy does some writer on this site bashes her. Lay off her.

    Asuka is failing because she’s over hyped and we all don’t watch NXT like it’s the holy grail. And she can’t speak English don’t say anything about Fox’s mic skills when Asuka can’t string together a sentence.

    Mickie was buried and I sadly we her leaving after SS.

    Alexa is drab and needs to lose that title soon.

    Nia was impressive in the ending sequence I didn’t know she could move so fast.

  • GEO
  • A?.

    Raw going downhill since Emma got released, coincidence? I think not.

  • Aye Mate

    I completed RAW with an image in my head: Mickie James being flung on the scrapheap where layeth Becky Lynch, Bayley and Sasha Banks. How many more off nights does a performer need to have for WWE to, y’know, reconsider shuffling the decks a bit? Here’s the thing, Alexa Bliss might not be the greatest grappler but she has her own currency in which you could use her in so many more effective ways than to push her as a dominant champion.

    Alicia Fox being captain of the women’s team at Survivor Series was impetus for some much needed character development, but nope: we were to take her position as seriously as she did in finding a nice hat to wear. I don’t have an opinion of Nia Jax and Bayley’s match either; it feels like we get an endless recycle of these two and it’s none the more visually impressive for it.

    Asuka picking up the wrecking ball tour previously inhabited by Nia last year was curious. I was initially hopeful that Asuka was a prospect whose bulletproof mystique would make her invincible to WWE’s toxic creative environment, and two weeks into her main roster arrival I’m suddenly very very worried.+

    • Charm City Gamer

      Alicia as captain is stupid.

    Can we just give Alicia Fox one more title run please, even if it is a Sasha Banks length reign, just one more time please, before she’s gone.

  • Mr. What

    I’m sick of Alexa Bliss wrestling ability. It getting worst when your new finisher is forearm. YOU NOT NIKKI BOO! Now we got this and that basic DDT. Division is dragging. Glad you back Mia. Don’t worry we not going keep you dominate. Creative love inconsistent character. Bayley is done. She maybe need go back to NXT and turn heel like Emma. Let cycle continue. Asuka is book bad. She need just one shot unknown wrestler. She shouldn’t break a sweat at this point but Creative telling Asuka is not ready for Raw. Tired.

  • Mickie’sNumber1fan

    Asuka is actually bombing. It’s sad. I don’t even care for her anymore.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Wasn’t a good idea to let go Emma then. Asuka is gonna get the Nia treatment. Remember when Nia was called up during the draft, she just wrestled locals/jobbers because WWE didn’t know what to do with her. Asuka is gonna just be wrestling locals for now which really sucks. She needs to interact with the locker room, she needs to face the other women (Sasha, Bayley and etc). Survivor Series is just bad timing because WWE is dragging out who’s gonna be on Team RAW…they should have kept Emma and turned Dana heel again and have them fued with Asuka for the meantime and even fued with Sasha after or something.

  • Mickie’sNumber1fan

    I’m glad everyone agrees that the forearm was the c*ck block of the match. Like I said I’m over it. But it seems by the comments post match that the feud will continue but it will be placed on hold until Alexa vs Natalya happens. Anyways

  • Nia Jax was such a star last night, I mean she killed it with the finisher sequence…
    on the other hand is alexa and mickie, my gosh! Mickie should have win this match, I mean for real? Still hate RAW writers for putting so much hype on her.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    A MESS. This Alexa reign is tragic. Someone end it please.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Tbh WWE doesn’t know what to do with Alexa without the belt. That’s why she’s been champ non stop.

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        I could see her going back to Smackdown when she loses the belt or she could go back to managing Buddy Murphy but on the main roster.

    • Charm City Gamer

      Tragic my foot, she’s been a great champion!

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Fuck you and your foot ?

        • Charm City Gamer

          Screw you too dickbag.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    “There’s always room to improve”… sorry there isn’t any room to improve when you’re already a 4x Champion in a year with ring skills like that. The damage is already done.

    • Mickie’sNumber1fan

      Like I get it. She’s very entertaining not as a champion. She’s great to come out and talk shit on the mic but not as far as wrestling

      • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

        Tbh mics alone cannot carried a match.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Jesus. Why didn’t I appreciate Charlotte more when she was on RAW? Honestly, I’d take Charlotte’s push over Alexa’s push anyday. At least with Charlotte, she put on great matches with the other girls that made the women’s title seem important.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Also Charlotte was just a more realistic/believable champ and she lose clean plenty of times so her PPV opponents don’t look weak. Charlotte has also the bayley to belly and tap out to Sasha plenty of time during her RAW days.

      • wysna

        Please don’t jinx it because the queen has been finishing her matches with big boots lately smh.

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Exactly. Bayley ended the Charlotte PPV streak only to lose to Alexa Bliss on her first try.

  • Nia is a star, that pop said it all. She should’ve defeated Alexa by now. Her dominating the division would look MUCH more realistic than Alexa.

    Asuka is losing steam and these squash matches aren’t helping her. First they robbed her off a surprising debut, then Emma dominates her and now she’s doing this. Writers think QUICK!

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Emma should have never been released! They could have continue the feud plus turned Dana heel and have them team up against Asuka. Emma and Dana could have pushed her to the limited. Dana could have been her next PPV opponent and Asuka wins by DQ. Eventually down the road a handicap match at another PPV where Asuka barely gets the win to end the feud, and I would have her feud with Sasha next. There are better ways to keep Asuka busy instead of squashing locals for the next few months. Seriously fcuk WWE and Vince again.

      • EnD reunion would’ve been the best for both. They always did the best together, I don’t know why they never reunited them again. They’re so stupid. I’m surprised Dana is still there but maybe they still have plans for her.

  • Mickie vs Alexa – why make it the ME if NOTHING special was gonna happen? Like why do this to Mickie? No title change, and the match wasn’t even good, let alone great.

    That ending was just tragic. Mickie beat top women in each company she’s wrestled in and this is to what she loses to now…

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      This was Mickie’s only chance to be RAW’s women’s champ during this time. It would have help the RAW title’s lineage. Her only chance of being champ in WWE is going back to SD Live.

    • Bliss = Goddess

      I wasn’t really main event the main thing was Strowman

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    Can WWE stop dragging out who’s gonna be on team RAW! They better announced the other 3 next week! Asuka better not be wrestling locals for the next few months like Nia did when she got called up otherwise I’m gonna flip tables! Asuka needs to interact with the other ladies! Emma should have not been released and teamed up with Dana again to feud to keep Asuka busy. I’m hoping they keep Bliss out of the title scene during most or if not all of 2018, because we need a break from her crappy reigns.

    • Bliss = Goddess

      Yea so let’s have Asuka be champ for another 49395926 days

    • Charm City Gamer

      Nah brother, we need a break from Sasha’s choke jobs. Let a dominant champion like my Goddess that can keep the title keep it as long as possible.

    • KatyaMenelli

      “Because we need a break from her crappy reigns” LMFAO right!

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    Mickie should have won the title at TLC and drop it to Nia Jax at Royal Rumble and have Nia carry it to WM and have Asuka beat her for it and if not WM the next RAW PPV after.

    • Diva_Fan

      Exactly how I would have booked it .

  • Match of Year Maker

    Last monday Alexa proved to the entire WWE Universe that SHE IS NOT a Main Event contender, she’s miles away from that…

  • NoWayHoeSay

    All the Alexa haters are making me like her more and like Mickie less can you chill

    • Mickie’sNumber1fan

      Girl ain’t nobody care what you think so bye

      • NoWayHoeSay

        Nobody care what u think

  • brill raw and i liked little miss chucky

  • The Wicked Bitch

    You can tell that they rushed the match, because of the Miz segment tbh. I bet nobody would be complaining if Alexa finished the match with the TB but y’all blaming her for the finish like she is booking her matches herself. You can see the ref telling them to end the match before the punch.

  • Kiana Taylor
  • txistedbliss

    I feel like this booking made Mickie look like she’s all talk and no substance, Alexa has truly now beat everyone in the division so I guess here comes Nia

  • Haraya

    I never hype Asuka, I know she’s great in ring but… I fell the same way as Edge & Christian think.

    We praised Alexa’s forearm but it doesn’t mean like this… WTF Main Roster writer done… turn atheletic Alexa to DDT of Doom & then Forearm… really? Really? REALLY? hope they don’t book bitch slap as her new finisher.
