Tonight on Monday Night Raw (Dec 4th), Paige competed in her first WWE match in over a year when she went one-on-one with Sasha Banks. Paige had her Absolution teammates Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose at ringside while Mickie James and Bayley accompanied Sasha Banks.

Looking for some payback after following last week’s attack, Sasha brought a fast-paced fight to Paige and kept her grounded via submission holds during the first half of the match.

When Sasha went for the Bank Statement, Paige was able to counter out of it. She began to set up for the Rampaige but Sasha was able to escape by shoving Paige to the outside, leading a standoff between the women.

Paige was able to turn things around after knocking Sasha off the second turnbuckle during the commercial break and continued her momentum by hitting a top rope Sunset Flip Powerbomb. The two Superstars would begin to trade blows, ending with Sasha locking the Bank Statement. Paige managed to break the hold after reaching the her foot to the bottom rope.

After escaping the Bank Statement, Paige rolled to the outside to try and recover. Sasha stayed in pursuit and tossed Paige back to ring while a brawl broke out between the women at ringside. Absolution were able to get the better of Mickie and Bayley, causing a small distraction to Sasha, who was then hit in the face with a boot followed by the Rampaige from Paige, awarding her with the win in her return match.

Post-match, Absolution continued their attack on Sasha, standing tall in the end.

Later in the evening, Asuka defeated Alicia Fox and in a scenario much like last week, Absolution resurfaced to surround the ring during Asuka’s victory celebration.

Asuka was ready for a fight but Absolution remained on the outside until Asuka headed to the back. Meanwhile, Paige took the mic to assure Alicia Fox that she didn’t want to hurt her and referred to her as her “best friend.” Paige then turned the attention to Sonya and Mandy, who went on to enter the ring to attack Alicia.

What did you think of the match? Are you enjoying Absolution on Raw so far? Do you think the group is ready for Asuka? Let us know in the comments below!

  • Darryl lee

    The match between Paige and Sasha was pretty good, say for that powerbomb spot. But I thought it could’ve been better.

    Asuka still proved her dominance by squashing alicia fox. But I wasn’t expecting asuka to just walk to the back like that.

    Also, how many turns does that make alicia?

    • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay

      I’d say about turn #300

    • Wicked Emma

      WWE is protecting Asuka.

  • L.S #PushBillieKay

    Riott Squad outsold

  • Danny?

    I thought it was a great match, especially for Paige’s first match back in about 18 months. RAW has been great lately but now they just need to establish what is happening with the title scene. Overall I’m happy with RAW & I am loving a bit of Sonya, her strikes are looking vicious & impactful.

  • brock

    Good match between Sasha and Paige, but This Feud is getting old real fast it’s been the Same Thing for 3 Straight Weeks Sasha, Bayley, and Mickie get beat down and never get revenge Total Bullcrap and Terrible booking of your babyfaces

  • ralfikh

    Can we have a competitive match with every opponent they gave Asuka?
    What good does it makes to Asuka opponent if they easily beaten.?
    All i can c is the only 1 who got the benefit is Asuka (& her “winning streak”).

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      We will get competitive matches with Asuka and her opponents, with the exception of Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox sadly.

      • Maddox

        Lol, do you get competitive match with Braun Strowman and Curtis Axel?

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Dana had a competitive match with Asuka in NXT though… I don’t see why she can’t have one with her on the Main Roster. And Alicia could put on a MOTY with Asuka if given time. People are actually going to care about Asuka’s streak more if she has more competitive matches with the other girls. They’d think she’d finally lose and it’ll help showcase the other girls talent. Everyone knows Asuka will win the match, especially on a random RAW, but just to see Asuka almost being close to losing would be entertaining and would actually help make people root for her to make a comeback or her opponent to end the streak.

          • Maddox

            Dana was better booked on NXT, here she is a full time jobber and should be crushed. Bo Dallas was an NXT champ yet you don’t see people hoping that he gives Brock Lesnar a tough fight. The Emma match even made Asuka lose some of her mystique amongst Casual fans, you have to always book people strong. She can have competitive matches against the likes of Sasha and Paige

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            How did it make Asuka lose some of her mystique? Majority of the fans didn’t know who Asuka was so her completely squashing Emma wouldn’t have made any sense. The fans want to see her WRESTLE so they could know why she’s dangerous. She could save the 1-3 minute matches with ACTUAL jobbers that don’t work here, not with the girls who are employed.

          • Maddox

            Dana a jobber, they hyped her up and yet she was having a hard time with Emma. When people say “Asuka’s gonna kill you”, they actually want to see her mean streak, not having equal matches with the likes of Emma. I know lots of people who didn’t get the big deal with her since they expected a dominant force debuting.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            That’s dumb. Why would you want to see her dominating majority of the girls? Wouldn’t you want to see a long match between the two to showcase their skills? She’s had long matches with the girls in NXT and their matches were long, with the exception of Asuka vs Liv. So if that’s the case, why can’t the Main Roster girls have longer matches with Asuka? If girls in DEVELOPMENT can last long with Asuka then so can the girls on the MAIN ROSTER.

          • KatyaMenelli

            OMG Right!

          • Maddox

            I expect her to have long matches with the likes of Sasha, Bayley etc. Dana is a jobber and you seem to forget that in Asuka’s debut match, Dana Brooke was used to showcase Asuka’s skills. The only difference is that match was longer

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            What does that mean? Emma was also used to showcase Asuka’s skills but their match was a little longer as well so I don’t see what you’re heading at?

          • Maddox

            To just put it bluntly, someone like Dana Brooke who is at the bottom of the women’s division shouldn’t even give someone like Asuka, who is at the top of the division, a fight. If you see Strowman and Bo Dallas in a match, you know how the match will go. When Asuka starts squashing (squash not beat) people like Sasha, then I will be concerned

      • ralfikh

        N when will they make them look like a threat if they gonna lose that way

  • ralfikh

    Finally they let Paige win a single match against Sasha.

  • conan_kun

    So Paige is able to have a match for more than 15 minutes after more than 1 year absence.

    This looks painful

    • Nadia

      Aren’t you suppose to flip and land on your feet? Timing was off on both ends. Sasha had no control over her body and landed on the back of her head. OUCH. Looked vicious though.

    • Jo9834

      Paige was being super safe here, normally you’d grab the thighs and force your opponent down, if you see she let go half way to allow Sasha to bump on her own terms. Love how vicious the match was.

  • conan_kun
  • Winter

    I understand that they have to build this new stable but something tells me it will not be worth it. How Sonya and Mandy can beat up Bayley and Mickie so easily? Plus what’s the point with Sasha, she’s gonna be her entire career putting people over? Where’s the championship? Like always WWE building up a few characters and damaging all the rest.

    • Nadia

      Bringing back Paige as a heel is an issue. The crowd wants to cheer her. They also want to cheer Sasha. So they didn’t know how to react tonight. I feel like WWE should have brought Paige back as a face than turned her heel on screen after a couple of weeks.

      I’m hoping Sasha gets a good run with a Title down the line. Its just going to be tough on Raw with the lineup. I feel like its going to be Paige up next than Asuka than Nia or Asuka hold it for a LONG time, unfortunately.

    • sleeper11

      Mickie lost to a slap they don’t care about being realistic.

      • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay

        I’ll NEVER forgive them for letting Mickie lose in such a disrespectful way like that

        • sleeper11

          they disrespect her so much I don’t think she’ll ever catch a break on Raw.

      • Omar Zaal

        It was a forearm.

    • Wicked Emma

      Um… It’s been a few weeks and you already sh*ting all over it.

      • Winter

        Well that’s my problem, if you don’t like it don’t reply me, it’s simple.

        • Wicked Emma

          Not my fault you got salty. If you don’t like for no one to give third opinion to you. Then you shouldn’t be commenting.

          • Winter

            I’m not salty at all.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            It’s claps, as in thanks for calling him/her out. Bitch saying that Sasha’s been putting ppl over her entire career but forgot to mention that everyone to a backseat to her on her first year in the MR. Paige, Becky, Nao, Bellas, all had to take losses left and right to prop up Charlotte and Banks

          • Jaded

            Bless you

    • Maddox

      Putting over people? How many times did Paige lose to Charlotte and Sasha when they debuted?

      • Winter

        Yeah putting over people, that’s what Sasha is doing since her main roster debut.

        • Maddox

          This is the first time Paige is beating Sasha and they have fought like 5-6 times

          • Winter

            That victories over Paige ended up in nothing.

        • #FlairfortheGold

          Bitch she went undefeated for a year in the MR, stfu

          • Winter

            Bitch you’re gonna reply me in every single post? Go get a life and let me alone girl, I say what I want.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            I am, I’m studying for finals, but like your buddy God Stratus likes to say, FACTS ONLY?

          • Winter

            Facts in your head honey, now please stfu and let me alone for a while.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Was Sasha not undefeated from her debut on Raw in 2015 until the handicap match during the 2016 draft? Bitch you’re sooooo delusional? Why don’t you try taking your head out of Banks a** and maybe then, you’ll see how dumb you sound

          • Winter

            I don’t care about you anymore, now go to study girl, that’s more important for you lol bye.

          • Jaded

            ?she was, I mean, I can count how many time she’s lost.
            Now Alicia, Dana, and Mickie that’s the true of definition of people putting people over.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            It’s true she was undefeated on tv for 6 months. Those other 6 boo she was kept off tv so she wouldn’t over shadow YOUR girl. Or do u need to post that video again ? …. Keep it cute

          • IconicTrio

            If you say daft things they shoud be checked.

        • Jaded

          Lol please stop!
          You mean the Sasha that was on a one year undefeated streak!

    • perceval

      If they want the Horsewomen that aren’t Charlotte to look credible going into the Ronda thing, they need to be allowed to look strong. Yes, heels need to be built as a threat, but the faces need to get some retribution in.

      I suppose they could do a Shield type reunion with the Horsewomen, where they get fed up, get the band back together, and take it to the heels. The Shield guys were getting beaten down for weeks.

      • Joseph

        That’s a good point.

    • Joseph

      To be fair Sonya has a legit MMA Background so i can believe it.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    A good match. That powerbomb spot scared me. I thought Sasha was out of it after that but she got back up and wrestled like it was nothing. Everything about Sasha Banks is good; her ring presence, her ring skills, her selling, her look. This girl is a STAR. Please give her the title and let her hold it for a long time, WWE. My girl would be a great champion, but WWE wouldn’t know that because they let her hold it for literally 30 days or less. At this point, I don’t care if Sasha is face or heel, just give her the title and let her prove why she’s the GOAT… Yes, I said it. Debate with your mothers, don’t debate with me! https://78.media.tumblr.com/87a4d49c0c03bc298a9a21e7f7a0d7e7/tumblr_oev2vca7kE1rmv1vdo3_400.gif

    • sleeper11

      not gonna happen. The raw title’s next 2 holders are gonna be Paige and Asuka. The booking is so obvious you can see it a year in advance.

      • KatyaMenelli

        omg right!

    • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay

      Yasss Queensha but we all know the next champs are Paige and Asuka and they are saving those 2 for Alexa

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        That’s true. Especially Asuka but whenever they’re done with those two, Sasha should win the title. She might not be Champion till 2019 at this point. :( I blame Asuka’s streak!

        • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay

          Me too but also creative

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            I know lol I blame creative as well, Asuka’s streak is interesting though

        • Maddox

          They are saving her and the other horsewomen for Rousey and her gang

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            yes

    • wysna

      She doesn’t just deserve to be a champion, she deserves better than these short ass fan service reigns she’s been getting. Against Charlotte it made sense to me: the back and forth between them created two superstars with the potential to be champ at any moment. It boosted both their credibilities because of how meta breaking their wins were. Nevertheless, Sasha should’ve 1. gotten the last laugh in that and kept the title for a good few months since Charlotte already had a long ass reign before their feud started. And 2. they shouldn’t have tried the same thing with Bliss because Bliss–as good she is on the mic–was no Charlotte.

      There is potential in this though, Sasha could come into a Wrestlemania match as champ with a storyline revolving around how she can’t defend her and she defies all odds for a payoff of a win. Of course, the WWE pulling that off is a bit of a stretch.

      • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay

        Especially with the horsewomen feud and Asuka or Paige winning the title at WM

      • Winter

        I don’t think wwe put the title on her anytime soon, my only hope is that live event in India, she’s gonna face Alexa and WWE is promoting that event a lot, maybe something can happen there.

    • Bad and Bossy

      This girl this !!!!
      This is when a humble and honestly person recognizes a truly STAR, for me, your comment was the BEST comment in this year in Diva Dirt.
      You see what I see in Sasha, she’s like the total package, she’s like the Shawn Michaels of his generation (she puts great matches after great matches with everybody and puts her body on the line with every bump she has), she sells every move like his life depends on it, she sells more merchandise than any other women in WWE, she has the LOUDEST POP every fucking MONDAY, her looks and his ring-gears are the BEST, she’s a great talker (not the best), and most importantly THE CROWD LOVE HER!
      WHAT I MEAN IS… when you see that facts through a person and is not booking in the right way IS JUST SIMPLY FRUSTRATING.

    • #ROSEARMY

      Sasha Banks has been the most consistent female worker in WWE for the greater part of this year. The disservice done to her on a creative level is a huge shame. WWE has her raking in a lot of money through merchandise and one can only hypothesise that as the reason why she’s been straitjacketed into the somewhat bland babyface role.

    • ??LUIGI??

      amen !

    • Women’s Revolution

      I really hope she goes to SD Live! next year. I’m sure she’ll thrive there as champion.

      RAW obviously have favorites and Vince McMahon and we know how that goes…

      I agree Sasha Banks is the G.O.A.T in the WWE Women’s Division.

    • Organization XIII

      SPREAD THE GOSPEL!

    • Velveteen Banks

      Sasha is one of the best female talent ever. Still she doesn’t really need to win the title to prove that, she is already a 4 time wwe women’s champion and a NXT women’s champion. She’s just 25, she will continue to be amazing and she will become a champion, but is more compelling for her to be unable to win it for a time so when she wins, she wins big.

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        I just want to see her as champion again sometime in the future, this time with a long reign. It doesn’t matter when

        • Velveteen Banks

          It should be in late 2018 and probably on SmackDown. Sasha could be given more opportunities over there, still she is in Raw because she is one of the most popular women in the roster .

    • GOD STRATUS•
    • Jo9834

      Sasha WILL get her shine, but it will most likely be on Smackdown not on Raw because PAIGE is next in line for Alexa’s title, followed by Asuka at WM. Asuka winning the Rumble is inevitable and then going onto WM to defeat Paige and her goons in grand fashion.

      Sasha will be tied up in the Main Event for the 4HW feud. 2016 was HUGE for her, she raked up not one, not two, not three but 3 Huge wins. A little cool off period is never a bad thing as long as they don’t have her lose left right and centre.

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Obviously. I just want to see Sasha win the title again and get a long reign. I don’t care when but it better happen.

        • Jo9834

          I hope so too! She’s the best in ring female since Gail Kim really.

      • Joseph

        So Bayley and Sasha to SD in 2018 and you can build up that 4HW Fatal 4 Way at Wrestlemania 35 in 2019. They all want to do that match at Mania.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    I like what they’re doing with Paige and Asuka. They’re teasing a feud between the two and when the two finally interact face-to-face the crowd will go crazy. It’d be a great feud and a great match. Asuka vs Paige at Mania for the title sounds good if they’re doing the Horse vs Horse match.

  • Nadia

    Loved this match. Hard hitting, running the ropes at full speed, Teases of viscous Sasha using the straight jacket hold and checking Mandy/Sonya at the same time. Sasha really bumped/sold her ass off for Paige tonight and Paige more than held her own. She did extremely well considering Paige hasn’t had a match in over a year. Well Done too both.

  • Chargod Flair #5x

    I feel like Paige Sonya and Mandy will be on total divas next season. These scenario seem like something that would be used for the show. I still have yet to watch raw.

  • conan_kun

    And they give Nia this, are they gonna make her and Enzo as another Tamina & Santino

    • Wicked Emma

      Really?

    • Like Mike

      I sadly think that’s the direction they will go with it too. However, I’m hopeful that Nia could get involved and act as a bodyguard type over him. I could see her knocking down some of the cruiserweights.

  • Pablo Albarrán

    I loved tonight. The promo, the match, alexa on commentary and everyone beign on the scene :3.

    And people, just for you to know, it’s not always about the title, for thinking like that is that almost the entire lockeroom is left behind quite often. The watcher gets to see just 2 or 3 wrestlers being put on the map fighting because of the fighting for the belt.

    It’s actually something good, that not everything revolves around the freaking championship, it gives everybody a proper chance to be on the spotlight.

  • Wicked Emma

    WWE is protecting Asuka. I hope to see Paige vs Alexa.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Alexa hasn’t defended her title in a month. It’ll most likely be two months since RAW doesn’t have a December PPV. And if she doesn’t defend this month, she’ll head into the New Year without defending her title for almost 3 months. They better give her a title match in the upcoming weeks or something. Alexa vs Paige for the title would be good even though I wanted to see Asuka destroy Bliss, but I know if Asuka faces Alexa, Paige won’t become champion for a long time due to the streak.

    • ???

      That what I said before ! Agree it’s ridiculous that everyone is involved but her and she’s the CHAMPION so she needs to defends it sooner rather than later , Alexa vs Paige ? Sounds good let Alexa retains over her with a distraction from someone and I hope the match will be good and not with a horrible ending like Mickie vs Alexa in Raw .

      • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay
        • ???

          LOL seriously I just can’t with WWE’s treatment of Mickie

        • Jaded

          ???

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Eh. Alexa needs to lose the title. I refuse to step into 2018 with 2017 problems!

      • Maddox

        The Christmas Day Raw will be like a PPV since they would want to retain viewers so am sure she will defend it then

      • PeppermintButler

        A little part of me was hoping for Alexa rescuing Sasha but after that Sasha beats Alexa, I really want a double turn.

        • ???

          I think Alexa needs to turn face , she wretle way better and already very likable !

          Her mic skills will not change , she may even deliver better as a good guy ? People say she’s only good speaker as a heel but they didn’t see her work as a face lol

        • perceval

          The Horsewomen thing means keeping them face.

      • perceval

        Nah, time for Alexa to drop the belt and let Paige hold it until Wrestlemania.

        • ???

          I’ll be fine with this as well! I just wanted Alexa to retain over Paige for the first time but let Paige wins it the second match ! The second match will take place in January!

    • Winter

      Alexa only wrestle on PPVs, remember that.

      • Chargod Flair #5x

        No she doesn’t

      • #FlairfortheGold

        The main event title match was on RAW hoe…

  • Pablo Albarrán

    I happen to like tonight’s action, the only thing I’d have changed is the Asuka vs Alicia, make thier match longer would’ve been better.

  • ???

    Positives :

    The promo of Paige before the match was life ! I like it and the crowd seems into Paige !

    The match was really good and very aggressive , I was wondering how Paige will perform since she didn’t wrestle for over a year .. but she’s back better than ever !

    Negatives :

    Asuka vs Alicia should gone longer , Alicia is a veteran and should give Asuka a decent match at least and those squash matches don’t do any favour to Asuka and they make her boring .

    2/ I understand they want to build the new heel trio strong , but Bayley and Mickie James look weak and appear to be can’t hold their own against them .. this will damage them especially Mickie .

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Mickie is already damaged. After that loss to Alexa, she’s sadly back to getting no reactions.

      • ???

        She was, but it’ll be worse if didn’t hold her own against them .

      • Jaded

        LMAO

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      Alicia is weaker than Dana. She’s lucky she didn’t get squashed in 3 seconds too.

      • ???

        Prepare for the people who will come at you for saying that to Alicia LOL

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          Ikr people have like weird soft spot for alicia. Like…. she’s a jobber?

          • ???

            Well look , I agree that not everyone is supposed to be a top star in the division but people in DD want everyone to be at the top and that not how you make stars if everyone is made to be equal.

            The problem with Alicia is that she doesn’t connect with the crowd well and don’t have the mic skills, long story short (she’s not champion material)

            But I do believe that she deserves a recognition for being in WWE for so long time , she needs side feuds and if she does win her reign should be short like one or two months .. she needs to move from being low card to mid card and not “top star”

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            She gets the recognition she deserves tbh, she hasn’t done anything except winning the divas title once.

    • Maddox

      WhY do you people want to see Asuka be on equal grounds with jobbers like Dana and Alicia? That’s like hoping to see the Miztourage give Braun Strowman an equal match

      • ???

        Why do YOU say things that I didn’t? I didn’t say Asuka should be equal to everyone I just say that Alicia should give Asuka 5 minutes decent match at least because she’s a veteran and NOT let her defeat Asuka at all.. not everyone should be equal to Asuka okay ?? Gosh I didn’t even mention Dana and said she needs to be equal to Asuka..

        You people make someone so tired , no matter what to say you still judge and you still misunderstand.. people are completely hopeless

    • Super Mateo

      The next squash match that gets someone over will be the first. Nia still isn’t over; Braun got over by attacking Roman, etc. Asuka won’t get over until she starts having better (by better, I mean more competitive) matches, which Dana and Alicia haven’t given her yet.

  • Dylan Gutierrez

    I can see Asuka playing the same game with Paige and her squad after their matches just standing on the ramp smiling and laughing. It’s a slow buildup to if Paige wins the title, Asuka is coming for her and the story tells itself.

    Alicia Fox poor thing. I really felt for her and she sold it well with Paige and co attacking her.

    I would like to see Alexa injected in the mix aside commentary. She got beat down and never once tried to get back at them unless she’s waiting for a spot that the faces beat down Paige and she sneak attacks?

    • Gerg

      I want spunky face foxy like her versus nia days

  • Alex

    With Asuka in the role of DDP and/or Sting I wonder is the WWE trying to do an all female version of NWO vs WCW with Paige and company.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Paige’s two separate ring gear pieces are killing me…….. How have you been out and prepping for this comeback for this long and you don’t even have a single matching ring attire? Come on Paige I’mma need you to get it together honey if you are supposed to be leading absolution and looking like you can’t care to match two pieces of an outfit together?

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      She always wears the same tired old attires. She straight up wore her wm 31 attire for 2 years straight.

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        I know lol she legit wears them till they are busting at the seams

    • PeppermintButler

      They need to have atleast a color matching attires, black and gold would look good on all of them. How come when guys makes a faction they get matching theme, titantron and attires while the ladies looks randomly put together. I think the last time there’s been female team that atually looks like a team was Team Bella

      • MK126

        Don’t forget team B.A.D

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        Right, like nikki has 2 million versions of her fearless nikki gear……. imma need some of these girls to step it up lol

    • Jo9834

      Paige is SAVING her coins, those attires cost thousands to get customised sometimes lol. I love how she only changed her look up for Wrestlemania OR a title win.

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        Come on you mean to tell me she couldnt have gotten one new full outfit for her big return after being out over a year? That is just lazyness lol.

        • Jo9834

          LOL! Its true, but lets face it, she was probably not planning to return, or even have a job after the type of year she’s had. I guess these outfits take a couple of weeks to make, OR it could actually be new, just the same style?.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            Girl has been talking about returning and prepping for her return like 3 months in to her injury lol. I’m not saying she needed something extravagant because that isn’t her style but damn she could have at least gotten either the bottoms that go with her top or the top that goes with the bottoms she is wearing remade so she at least had one matching ring attire lol.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            I thought she was finished after her sex tape leak but when she didn’t get released half a year later I knew they weren’t going to let her go over it or it would have already happened.

  • wysna

    Sasha is such a baller selling those snapmares like a pro. And I am happy that Paige’s performance here went beyond kicks, headbutts and her finisher.

  • Liam Collett

    Haven’t seen the match c yet other then the 4 min one on YouTube,
    Anyone have any booking ideas?
    I’m hoping that we continue this 3v3 feud between absolution and bayleyand Mickie through till elimination chamber. While their having their 3v3 feud I would start building Alexa and adulation at WM have Alexa spose to be defending her title against Asuka at roadblock but have her do a cam thing says she couldn’t make it cause of traffic issues and base their feud off Alexa trying to run from asuka but instead Nia and asuka get into a fued till elimination chamber so we can get two really good matches
    Paige vs Sasha vs Alexa vs Mandy vs Sonya vs Mickie or bayley in the first elimination chamber match and have Alexa sneak a win then we refocus to asuka and Alexa for WM
    Idk what type of angle their goi down with Nia and enzo but I already don’t like it so this to me fits better

  • conan_kun
    • GOD STRATUS•

      Fabulous sequence

  • FOXY & FLAWLESS BOSS

    This could be a huge turning point in everything if WWE were to play their cards right but since we all know they’re a bunch of fuck ups and won’t, let’s explore what could have been a great scenario:

    First I’m really disappointed the alicia bit ended in an attack because I was just thinking about how a 4th member would make them a force and alicia being such a diverse and off the wall character already (plus her navy blue & gold trim attire would have actually made their lil entourage match) would have fit in perfectly so I was hoping Paige would ask her to join. Either way, it doesn’t surprise me at this point that they just keep using my girl as the fall guy.

    So who would be Absolution’s 4th member? Alexa Bliss. How or Why? Have Sonya Deville beat Alexa next week on RAW. She said it on commentary tonight herself that she won’t believe it until she’s in the ring with them and the one who would need the biggest rub from this would be Sonya if they REALLY expect this girl to come across as a threat. Of course Alexa would lose after some ringside shenanigans from Absolution, but that’s the entire point. Alexa needs to have a reason to be scared. The RAW Women’s division needs a real reason to be scared and having an upset win by someone like Sonya boost the ego of Absolution by that much more would be enough to cause little Miss Bliss to use her ACTUAL best character attribute: survival. The biggest annoyance to me through this all has been Alexa’s use of just running away from commentary tables. I get they don’t know how to use her in this, but they should have been using these weeks to have her doing backstage interviews saying she doesn’t hold any personal grudges against Absolution (despite obviously holding grudges) because she gets they’re trying to make a statement and she’s just watching over to make sure she doesn’t become that statement. That would have set better groundwork for her losing to Sonya loss to work but ? (thanks RAW writers).

    Anyway, post-loss Alexa can start the suck-up process and much to her surprise, she’s in (they can make her do some weird initiation where she jumps Nia with them…make that dynamic finally interesting ffs….). Idk this just makes sense to me. Absolution could use way bigger starpower, even if temporarily, and Alexa can bring that and a unique dynamic for fans to wonder when they’ll turn on her. Plus just imagine Alexa going all-dark to really try and fit in, the all black attire, the all black makeup, black died tips… she needs a character refesher anyway, so why not let her run with Absolution?

    The only thing that confuses me in all of this is the use of Auska. Having Auska be that fourth member would be so disorienting because while it could make a career defining heel turn, knowing RAW’s booking, it’ll just muddy up and water down her entire character and make it really awkward when it was time to turn her back face. But if she’s not joining them then both of these last two awkward ass segments didn’t make sense to me….. unless they were waiting to add their 4th member to ensure they would take her down!!! That would make the surrounding the ring to let Auska leave until there was a 4th person there to block that side nsoigdjs;g. But this is WWE. That shit ain’t happenin’. Would be nice though???

    (p.s. in my vision there is no absolution v the entire fucking raw women’s dvsn… the focus would shift to absolution w womens champ alexa, for now, vs. whoever is contending for the title and let the rest of the raw womens dvsn moveeee the fuckkkk on because we got too many women for this. aaaahhh ok i missed diva dirt)

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      I think they’re teasing a Paige and Asuka feud. I don’t think Asuka will join Absolution, I just think Paige is playing mind games with her, trying to get in her head. One of these days Absolution will finally get in the ring with Asuka face-to-face and Asuka will most likely fight off Mandy and Sonya, leaving her and Paige alone in the ring.

      I see it as Absolution destroying everyone in the women’s division just like Asuka is destroying majority of the girls in the women’s division with her streak. They’re just stalling time right now so that when they actually do clash, it’ll be something big.

    • Jaded

      Alicia would be disastrous with them, we don’t need a fourth member

    • Izzy4lw

      If WWE were smart, then Absolution would stop all this beating down mess they’ve been doing for three weeks and begin to integrate into the division as a force, instead of how they’re currently portrayed (as a fringe stable almost on the outskirts of the division). Great, they can use the numbers game to beat people up. Now it’s time they start going for domination – how would they do that? shoot Paige to the top – have her gun for the Women’s title. If they want to sell Absolution, use the attack last night to kayfabe injure Sasha and have her out for the next couple of weeks. Sonya and Mandy could keep Bayley and Mickie busy, and Paige could focus her efforts on Alexa. During a #1 contender’s match between Bayley, Mickie, and Paige, Sonya and Mandy could distract Mickie, leaving Bayley to eat the pin. Then Absolution can focus on Alexa and her tricks and Paige can take the title. This could eventually lead into the Asuka/Paige feud, since that seems to be where they’re heading.

  • Mickie’sNumber1fan

    My biggest issue here is that they just have Alexa doing NOTHING. She’s sitting with this championship WEEK BY F****ng WEEK doing NOTHING!! Meanwhile , Paige and her pets are getting reactions and making a name for women. They need to take this belt from Alexa and put it on someone credit worthy because honey she’s a non factor right now.

    • The Wicked Bitch

      Why do you think that if they put the title on someone else they’ll do more than Alexa is doing? The reason Alexa is doing nothing atm is because they’re focusing on Paige’s return. The champ will be back on track in the following weeks, since Asuka is probably gonna challenge her or maybe Paige will target her next since she’s done with Sasha & friends.

    • Joseph

      That isn’t her fault and its pretty obvious they are setting up for Alexa face turn to make the save for Bayley and Sasha.

  • Mickie’sNumber1fan

    Paige and her pets should have the championship with this strong force that they’re becoming. And where the hell is Nia Jax? Why isn’t she ending Paige and Co. ? They have her doing other crap

  • Parasite

    I’m happy that Paige won! I would move Sasha to SD because her run on Raw is a hot mess.

  • TheRealest #ItsBossTime

    I can’t wait for Sasha and Paige to get a proper championship feud match, these little teases of something great the past few years would finally pop off.

  • Mike

    Tbh Mickie should’ve won the title from Alexa back when they main evented so as Paige and co could have a face to feud with, unless they turning Alexa face which I doubt. Then with Alexa gunning for her rematch and absolution running wild and gunning for the title it would’ve made things way more interesting. Like wondering if Alexa gonna side with Paige or watching Alexa try and co exist with Sasha and Bayley to take down absolution. The division would be in chaos and you could have Dana and Alicia feuding with Asuka on the side.

  • All of this is very interesting, and makes me want to see what’s next ,but I feel like it would have been more interesting if there was a face champion right now ( Mickie James anybody ?? ).
    And Paige changing her ( unmatched ) shorts between the two segments caught my attention, I bet she spilled some food backstage haha

  • Kvngbalor

    Im loving how Alexa has become instantly irrelevant since the return of Paige https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e26e5c8ab56a0cb3fbfa3447d6a9c28dc0716e89615fff9065ddcb27c48c89a3.gif

    • KatyaMenelli

      my exact thoghts!

  • Almarpar

    Wicked match. Shame Sasha lost but Paige had to win to keep absolution looking stong. But Please i want a sonya and mandy match next week. Plus hopefully asuka and absolution will actually fight next week … or maybe Asuka will join them? .. nah probs not.

    Alexa …. Nia… im actually not even bothered its kinda nice not to have a story centred around the title.. even the if it does make it obselete.

  • Kvngbalor

    Love the way Paige is being pushed as the center of the division these promos, the hype, the commentary she deserves it this WAS the women before 4HW changing the divas division her and AJ soon as the4hw arrived she became a after thought for a long time she’s getting everyrhing she deserves and im loving the tease between her and Asuka it’s a mutual respect but at the same time a bitch im watching you

  • #ROSEARMY

    Solid wrestling from top to bottom across the entirety of RAW. Initially I wasn’t sure about the match being so long, especially when the first section was lacking in heat. Plus, one would imagine that this could have been a bigger deal somewhere down the line. But, as expected, Sasha and Paige worked great together and the final few minutes were suitably dramatic. Sasha isn’t damaged by this loss and Absolution come off like a huge threatening deal, so win win all round. It’s especially nice to see that Paige hasn’t missed a beat in the ring – I’m really, really excited at the idea of her mixing it up with Asuka.

    Oh and Alexa Bliss was hilarious on commentary.

  • Tnn Crs

    Asuka will probably join Absolution and that’s a smart choice. Her undefeated streak doesn’t need to end right now but she won’t be a threat for Absolution’s dominance. Moreover, she can let the title picture to Paige. But does it mean that Alexa will turn face? o.O

    • perceval

      Nah. It would make no sense to turn Asuka heel and having her Paige’s lackey, and they’re clearly not turning Alexa face since she’s being cowardly.

      • Tnn Crs

        Considering Asuka faced Dana last week and left Alicia all alone this week I guess she already is heel or at least tweener.

        • Dylan Gutierrez

          Asuka is more of a tweener. She’ll probably be more like her NXT run where her arrogance will be her undoing once she has the championship and someone defeats her at WM or another big PPV. She’s known to stalk her opponents and challengers so I see it as her returning the same mind game to Paige and co. Absolution will attack Asuka at one point but going by Asuka’s reaction she’ll be ready for them.

  • Now this is the kinda match I been waiting for raw to give keep it up, I’m mad Foxy was fed to Asuka and then the post match promo and attack. Yes. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c2d3d1b87700969426c996728481bf6277ce79161d3198f2a9496afaa71f19b1.gif

  • Velveteen Banks

    The night went very predictable. And it’s kinda disappointing that Paige first match was regular at best against one of the best WWE female wrestlers today. Then there is the Alicia Segment, Mandy couldn’t botch it further…

  • Randall

    This feud is really becoming stale. I mean if your going to have Paige feud for the belt can you just get to it already. You literally have the champion doing nothing at this point. Honestly Mandy and Sonya aren’t needed for this storyline. They should just have them feud with Sasha and Bayley.

  • Kristina Buford

    Man, they have a #1 talent in Sasha Banks, and yet they have done such a disservice to her. That girl has the total package and can actually get the crowd on her side.

    I wish they would have waited till a PPV to do a Paige/Sasha match. Hell, I am all in for a Paige/Sasha/Asuka triple threat match. That would be such a physically abusive match and all 3 women would fucking kill it.

    Alexa has mic skills, but man she is horrible when she does stuff like commentary where you have to be off the cuff and quick witted.

    • Super Mateo

      Alexa was pretty good with the zingers when she was on SD. I wouldn’t call her appearances at commentary horrible, but she’s not as good ever since going to Raw. Last night, it was good she didn’t talk a lot and take attention away from the match at hand.

  • MK126

    Maybe it was just me but I was bored while watching the match even though it was a good match. I think if Paige is gonna stick to being that brawler type of heel she should ask her mom for some advice cause her mom is a straight savage in the ring. She also needs to REALLY update her attire. You’ve been out for a year and couldn’t have had someone make you some new gear? Get it together Paige

  • The Wicked Bitch

    The match was really cute but I don’t understand what the point of Absolution is..like why are they going after Sasha and her friends and not after the champ.

    • MK126

      Maybe to make it easier to go after the champ if they beat down everyone else? By the time they make their way to Bliss no one is gonna help her. She’s made enemies out of Banks/Mickie/Bayley so they wont help her when they go after her

      • The Wicked Bitch

        Hmm I guess but Alexa isn’t dumb she probably knows Paige and co are after her, so why isn’t she making any friends to take on absolution. She did it with Nia back in september.

  • Nicola Byrne

    Honestly, I already gotten really bored of this. Nothing is happening on both women’s division!

  • aldo

    That match was all I needed. The sunset powerbomb was sick. Yes, I’m enjoying Absolution thus far and cleaning the floor with the rest of the division makes them look strong. I assume once they are done with them, Paige is next in line for the title, although it should be Asuka. I still think they want to recruit her. I hope Alexa loses the title sooner rather than later because she is pretty much doing nothing. And I hope Nia gets involved, I mean, the segment with Enzo was kinda funny, but really???

  • mckenzie

    I’m most impressed with fox in her bout to get Asuka. Love Paige but fox and mickie are still my favorite women to watch on raw.

  • Izzy4lw

    Sasha and Paige brought an intensity that I missed on the main roster – They wrestle like they’re ACTUALLY trying to kill one another, and that was not lost on me! My only gripe (because you know I have to have one) is that the WWE is a place where the heels get cheered like faces, and the faces get crickets. Despite that, the crowd wanted to get behind both, when the story being told was that Sasha was clearly supposed to be the babyface here, but Paige is back and is white hot so the crowd was clearly more invested in her. Also the booking is getting weirdly nonsensical again – when they debuted they did so against the faces AND heels, and yet the story being told here is still very much the same old face vs heel scenario. I’d like Absolution to go after anyone and everyone, not just Sasha and friends.

  • Like Mike

    Side note, I’m loving Alicia’s new ring gear. I love that color!

    • KatyaMenelli

      omg right! i thought i was the only one!

  • Summer_Slay

    Mandy and Daria botching matchines have no place on the main roster. Im sick of people hyping Mandy and then i get myself hyped for her and she pays us dust. She has the looks but she is still clearly green. She hasnt wrestled enough matches without being carried. Look at her nxt live events record Ember Moon, Kimberly, Asuka. She learned 2-3 moves and holly molly people call her the new Trish Stratus. She botched a running knee to the head how TF do you botch something as simple as that. And Daria is so stiff it hurts to watch. “THATS RIGNT BABY” say it one more time hun, the 2 times last week werent enough.

    AND are you kidding me Nia “the crazy power house” that fails all her title matches becuase she’s green and nobody trust her enough to put the title on her, that squashed like 10 jobbers + Alicia, Dana and Mickie is now in a comic relief storyline. WTF is this booking? Are they insane. Why to make a joke out of her. They might as well give her the Emmalina gimmick next.

    And underrated queens Alicia and Dana deserve better i dont want them to be next year’s Summer and Emma.

    • Like Mike

      I definitely agree with everything you’ve said. It was obvious they were poised to use Mandy in a big way since she got that spot on total divas. But they really did her a disservice by not having her involved much in NXT. She needed the exposure and the training to get better. When was her last match on NXT even? She wasn’t ready and that goes double for Sonya.

    • Randall

      Not sure why people keep saying she’s the next Trish. I wish they would have let her develop more in NXT. From what I’m seeing she still needs a lot of work.

  • Mick

    RAW highlights for women.

    1. Good match between Sasha Banks and Paige. I don’t get people “scared” with the powerbomb spot. Paige wasn’t able to pull it off completely but Sasha saved it with the selling. Nothing too special about it but the general product was great.
    2. Entertaining match between Asuka & Foxy. If someone can sell Asuka as a monster, that is foxy. If only Asuka was more stiff with her strikes this time.
    3. Nia’s interaction with Enzo. Only three words and showing her face was good enough to cause an impression. Not only is she over with the crowd (and this role might make her even more popular) but we might get a double dose of Nia. She can be on RAW and 205! Just imagine her wrestling dudes with credibility!
    4. Asuka is still untouched. If something is to take away from her interactions with Absolution; she’s the one to respect and the crew know about it. She is also ruthless, she won’t save nobody from RAW’s newest faction.

    RAW did good with it’s women, the tag team division and overall the whole show, minus Finn Balor. The dude is being wasted into nothing. He should be in line for the IC belt or the universal belt. The mens division seems too overcrowded.

  • I still don’t understand why Absolution went after Sasha instead of focusing on the champ. I feel like if a returning Paige would want to make the biggest impact, the most effective way would be to take out the one holding the belt. Instead, Alexa has been booked like an afterthought the last two weeks. While staying on commentary is playing to her strenghts, I would like to see her more involved in this. I’m fine with it since Sasha and Paige gave us a great match, and I expect the latter to move on to Bliss sooner rather than later, but I’m part of that crew who believes the focus should always be primarely on the title and the champion.

    I also want to see Mickie James and Bayley vs Sonya and Mandy soon. It’s time to see what the new additions are capable of. They should’ve already have had a match.

    Also, I noted the commentary putting Mandy Rose over, but not a word about Sonya. Hmmm!

    • Izzy4lw

      I think I said it below; but it could still work if Paige went after Sasha two weeks straight to ‘injure’ her; the writers can use last night’s beatdown again to write Sasha off tv for a bit, it sells absolution as a monster stable, and also the reasoning could be given on commentary that Sasha would be the biggest detriment to their plans to put Paige at the top. It’s possible, but WWE isn’t that creative.

      • MK126

        Absolution needs to take someone out for more than a week to be seen as a monster stable and Sasha is the girl to do it. We were in Bayley’s hometown yesterday and no one cared that she got her ass kicked lol

        • Izzy4lw

          Right! Keeping Sasha out to take a break for a month would sell their beatdown, while Paige comes after the title. Then when Paige takes the title and is lording it over everyone, Sasha returns with a vengeance. It could write itself… but knowing WWE all we’re going to get is a 6 woman tag match while Alexa floats around in irrelevancy.

        • Joseph

          They were in Los Angeles not San Jose.

          • MK126

            Close enough lol

    • GOD STRATUS•

      All roads lead to Sasha … Or haven’t you heard … She gets the most heat of any woman in the company a program with Sasha banks makes these women look like the stars they’re supposed to be … I think the more startling thing here is the bliss fans being perfectly okay with her having nothing to do…. Is a win over Sasha more legit than a win over the current champ ? That’s the question

  • Damn!

    Is Nia gonna compete in the cruiserweight division? If so then that would be awesome

    • Summer_Slay

      No, she will bring back the heavyweight title.

    • I thought the weight max was 205 for cruiserweights? I just realized that sounded shady– I promise it wasn’t meant that way..My point is that I don’t think she’d be able to

  • Thank you for making these! We don’t need full reduxes, jut something to discuss about after the show.

    I’m liking their work so far but I need them to do something with Alexa’s title reign.

  • Michelle

    Paige vs Sasha match was meh. I don’t like matches when Paige is in control as the match really dragged and didn’t have a good flow! I always thought Paige only had good chemistry with Natalya and Alicia Fox! Paige needs to evolve and do more than screams, kicks and rest holds! She looks really lost when she isn’t screaming every minute and doing her repetitive kicks! That Power bomb spot was cringe worthy!
    The Asuka vs Alicia Fox should have been much longer as it was fun and entertaining! That match should’ve took 10 min from Paige vs Sasha!

  • What?

    Im so glad they injected all of this new blood into the division so they could do the same shit 3 weeks in a row. I really feel like they could have done three weeks of this material in one long segment and it was purposely stretched out over three weeks without any reason to be.

      Right? What’s next week gonna be like Alicia vs Mandy/Sonya with Alexa on commentary. Banks,bayley and Mickie make their way to a stare down. Smackdown at least has direction with attacking the champ. Raw has no PPV so are they just stalling?

    It was smart to put Paige with Sasha since she knows her and Bayley the most.

    Lmao at Cole and Alexa giving each other clapbacks yaaasss
