    Why should people care about those other teams though now? They were barely being used to begin with and now they've all fallen before the mighty Alexa in record time, so fans have even less reason to be invested.

    This is the kind of thing that annoys many people about Alexa's booking.

    The RAW Tag Team Champs just lost to a bunch of random singles competitors and are being used as nothing more to prop up a feud for another belt.

    But yes, WWE seems to only want you to care about who they are pushing. At least Nikki actually got the pin this time.

    Good news

    HHH will in fact remain in control of nxt. Vince will be focusing his attention so much on the XFL so he just doesn't have time

    Buddy has to be the most improved wrestler in the WWE. He was one of the most generic tag wrestlers in the history of NXT, but since going up to the main roster in 205 and Smackdown, he's been pretty entertaining.

    Buddy upsetting DB was great. Keep this momentum going WWE.

    I'd love to see Andrade win KOTR.

    Vince isn't even trying to hide his agenda with Charlotte anymore. And if they had Charlotte win the blowoff match with Becky, for Bayley to sneak a win on an out cold Charlotte, only for Charlotte to just win the title back from her in a real match, well that'll be really telling and NOT in a good way.

    It'd be nice if some of those other SDL women could get a real shot, for example Sonya has shown some potential. And no Ember did not get a real shot, they set her up to fail. But Vince just doesn't care about any of them it would seem

    Eh... I was honestly fine with Ember not winning the belt. Probably a bit too soon for Bayley to drop it. And Ember frankly didn't deliver in the ring to the degree she needed to to justify getting more of a push than she got. You can fault the booking for the lack of crowd heat up to a point... but ultimately the match was only just OKAY. Cool look, cool finish, and cool entrance... but still more sizzle than steak with her at this point.

    But right now the 4 horsewomen are dominating the womans singles division, and they probably should be. There aren't a lot of other women capable of putting out the level of matches they are.

    Charlotte's gimmick is that she's the chosen one. In any case, Charlotte isn't winning at NoC. If they do RAW vs. Smackdown as usual at Survivor Series--then we would end up with Becky vs. Charlotte (again) or Sasha vs. Charlotte (again). Not to say Charlotte won't win the title eventually, just not right away.

    Buddy Murphy's win was great. Daniel Bryan is making everyone around him look like a star. You could tell he was trying to not to bust a gut laughing at the end reveal with the two Rowan's.

    That's the great thing about Charlotte at this point (and Becky of course). She's gotten to a level where she doens't even need the title. With or without the belt, Charlotte the top female heel in the industry. If she or Becky ever get the belt, it's not because they need the title... because the title needs them to make the title important. She will inevitably win the belt again... but there's no rush at all. Charlotte feuding with Bayley for the belt does more for Bayley than it does Charlotte at this point.

    Bayley being champ at SUrvivor Series does create an interesting scenario regardless of who the womans champ is. Bayley vs Becky or Bayley vs a heel Sasha is pretty hype.

    It looked like either Rowan's older brother, or Earth-Two Rowan.

    this is near master level bullshit artistry. it's somehow both insulting and impressive at the same time.
    do you think you could tell us what the great thing about the moment of bliss segments is??

    i read impact is bringing in marufuji again but this time actually putting him in a high profile match at bound for glory against michael elgin. that could be pretty damn good.

    I think that's a rather reductive way of looking at the situation.

    Charlotte became a star because of her ability AND her multiple title reigns. I mean, this is the Women's Title we are talking about, it's the sole title (outside the newly installed tag champions) in the female division.

    Charlotte holding the belt again at this point actually takes away interest from it because she's been pushed so much in a rather short space of time. In fact, I would argue that Becky got over the way she did BECAUSE of Charlotte's relentless push and needless title win.

    Impact has been low key fire. I people are kind of sleeping on it.
