WWE Divas – Raw, Smackdown, NXT Results:

nxt

As Roadblock and the Elimination Chamber approach, the women are getting restless on the Road to WrestleMania. Bayley stands up for her friend’s honor by taking on Nia Jax on Raw. Smackdown features the first ever dual contract signing – as both Mickie James and Smackdown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss make their matches against Becky Lynch and Naomi official. Nikki Bella and Natalya also have to speak via satellite to avoid any rough-housing. Over on NXT Liv Morgan steps into the ring to battle Billie Kay.

Raw

Bayley vs Nia Jax

Winner: Nia Jax

Thoughts:

WWE continue to mix and match with their feuds on Raw, and this week Nia faced Bayley once again. They have chemistry, and Bayley is able to get a good match out of anyone, so that wasn’t too bad. Bayley is clearly going to be an asset to the division if she’s going to work this hard to make a throwaway match on Raw feel important. But alas we have a rematch against Charlotte booked for next week. Are WWE going to pull the same deal they did with Sasha and have Bayley win on Raw? Just to preserve Charlotte’s PPV streak? I honestly want Bayley to win the title so this feud can be over and done with. The budding program between her and Sasha is far more enticing, and I’d like to see it get started. Actually I think a great twist would be for Sasha to interfere in the match on Bayley’s behalf – giving her the win by doing something dirty. That could cause a nice rift between them – Bayley wanting to have won the title on her own merits, and Sasha expecting a reward for helping her. And if they must throw Charlotte into the picture as well, it does give a way for her to get into the triple threat game. I’m not personally too keen on a triple threat at WrestleMania – since we got that match back in September. Bayley vs Sasha on its own however is far more worthy of being a WrestleMania match. I also find myself looking to the draft. I assume we’ll be getting another one with the brand extension back. Raw already needs its division shaken up. But at the same time – you feel bad for any of the women who will be moved off Smackdown as a result.

Smackdown:

Natalya and Nikki Bella talk via satellite.

Mickie James, Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss and Naomi dual contract signing.

Thoughts:

One of my friends made a good point this week – Raw has better wrestling than Smackdown. Most of the matches Charlotte, Sasha and Bayley have had with each other have all been above average and PPV quality. The Smackdown women have had good matches but nothing great or really wow-worthy yet. But Smackdown is more watchable due to the good booking and character development going on. As such it can be easier for us to overlook Smackdown’s flaws – because on paper their stuff is very good. The Nikki/Natalya stuff I wasn’t a fan of. Mostly because it felt like a rinse repeat of what they’ve done before; Nattie accuses Nikki of using John Cena to get to the top, Nikki responds with barbs about the Hart family. And their mic work wasn’t really good enough to make up for it. I wanted to like this segment but there was something that wasn’t doing it for me. I think perhaps their feud has gone past the stage where they can have promos – and they need more matches. The contract signing was much more satisfying – despite that again being a repetitive segment. It’s surprising to me that the weakest promo came from Mickie; she was veering dangerously close to Charlotte’s slow way of speaking. This was in stark contrast to Becky and Alexa’s natural delivery. Naomi was in the middle – more solid than Mickie but not as natural as the other two. But her big kick to Alexa definitely added the right punchline to a great segment. I would love for Naomi to go to WrestleMania and continue her feud with Alexa there. But for now I’ll just be happy that she’s getting another PPV title match. Mickie and Becky should be fun too. I expect both heels to go over, acting as building blocks to different matches in the future.

NXT

Billie Kay vs Liv Morgan

Winner: Liv Morgan

Thoughts:

Once again we’ve got some more wrasslin on NXT. Thankfully it’s with two members under contract and not just a squash. This was a so-so match. I didn’t like it much on my first watch. In contrast to some of Liv’s previous bouts, it looked like a step backwards. She was very slow and sloppy with most of the stuff she did. On paper, the ideas looked good – such as that headscissors from the corner and the unique way she set it up. But the execution needs work. There was also something about her this week; she came across as a little smug and bitchy at times, particularly with the little stuff she was doing at the start. If she wanted to come across as fun and playful, she didn’t quite succeed. She should look at Bayley or Carmella when she was a face to take notes. But if they’re foreshadowing a heel turn for Liv then I guess it makes sense. I am happy that she picked up a win though. I’m also happy that they’re putting more effort into selling Billie and Peyton as a team – with a personalised titantron and that t-shirt Peyton was wearing. One just has to wonder where they’re going to go from here if Ember Moon is the next one to challenge Asuka.

    Just same 4 women appeared on Raw again, Emma needs to return next week to give women division a fresh air, I hope they don’t repeat hot potato title change between Bayley and Charlotte but I can see Bayley wins the title next week on Raw then Charlotte wins back at Fastlane since they won’t save Bayley title win moment at bigger stage, Nia should have demanded for title shot by now since she destroyed Sasha then beat Bayley. Sasha just sitting there and taking a verbal beating from Charlotte without even offering one rebuttal.

    I hope Sasha won’t turn heel before Mania, though she’s showing sign of heel turn last few weeks, why do she want to cost Bayley a title match if it’s happen next week on Raw or Fastlane, just because she’s upset against Bayley taking her spotlight.

    I don’t like way they booked Nikki and Natalya feud, every time Cena’s name is brought up whenever they do a promo. Dual contract signing for two separate matches are being signed at the same time is groundbreaking and the order is done perfectly.

    Speaking of Elimination Chamber, I hope Naomi wins the title in this Black History Month, even she hold it till Mania will be accomplishment for her already. Mickie wins one of the few matches between her and Becky. Natalya should win but Nikki will win back on Smackdown within a few weeks

    • Bobby Calloway

      They could hold off on Sasha turning on Bayley until well after Mania if they wanted. Say she turns heel in Mania by beating Bayley for the title.

      • conan_kun

        Hate to say that, I also hope Sasha vs Bayley at Mania but Charlotte vs Sasha vs Bayley vs Nia in Fatal 4 Way at Mania may be locked already, rumor said they gonna do Sasha vs Bayley at Summerslam season.

        • Bobby Calloway

          Honestly I wouldn’t mind a Fatal 4 Way instead of a triple threat. If we don’t get Sasha/Bayley then a F4W is preferable to just a rematch from Night of Champions.

      • Francisco Baguer

        As much as I want Bayley to win and feud with Sasha for the title, WWE’s “get everyone on the card” mentality when it comes to WrestleMania might damage what should be their story by having Nia Jax & Charlotte being inserted as a Fatal 4 Way match.

  • Francisco Baguer

    I think this week all 3 shows weren’t that exciting. On Raw we once again have Charlotte being shoved down our throats and this title match next week is pointless. As much as I want Bayley to win and feud with Sasha for the title, WWE’s “get everyone on the card” mentality when it comes to WrestleMania might damage what should be their story by having Nia Jax & Charlotte being inserted as a Fatal 4 Way match.

    Smackdown wasn’t much better. Whats more lazy & cliche than a contract signing? How about having two of them in one segment with two feuds that don’t connect with each other. It was just WWE’s old mentality of cramming women into one segment because their lazy & don’t know what to do with them.

    NXT has Billie & Peyton try and fail to be Laycool, I mean there are so bad and annoying. There is nothing special about them, except acting PG mean & talk about getting rid of the faces. Liv Morgan has no character other than being the happy go lucky, happy to be here, & dances like she’s Sami Zayn. Liv doesn’t need to be another, “this is my dream” babyface. I’d much be open to see a heel turn from her. It worked for Carmella, so why not have Liv be heel see what they can do with her.

    • conan_kun

      “How about having two of them in one segment with two feuds that don’t connect with each other”? Because Alexa and Mickie are in cahoots and have each others’ back, so it’s okay to have contract signing together.

      • Francisco Baguer

        Fair enough. I understand Alexa & Mickie being together, but why does Becky need to get in the way of Naomi’s feud with Alexa? Becky won’t be in her corner for the title match, she’s going to be busy facing Mickie in what could be a good match.

        • Bobby Calloway

          Becky WAS feuding with Alexa, and Mickie came in as a way of transitioning her out of one feud and into the other. Becky is behind Naomi as a friend and someone who wants to see Alexa get her comeuppance. I don’t see how Becky got in the way -- Naomi ended the segment going over the Women’s Champion.

          • Francisco Baguer

            Your right, Naomi did look good and I hope this ends with her winning the title. I’d like to share with you my thoughts from NXT. It has Billie & Peyton try and fail to be Laycool, I mean there are so bad and annoying. There is nothing special about them, except acting PG mean & talk about getting rid of the faces.

  • NMKPLG

    TBH I really love Peyton and Billie, but we need to know more about their characters. For peyton we need to know why shes likes plants. I was thinking that she should have like plastic weeds in which she uses to choke her opponent when the ref isnt looking or to use in dq matches, and she could use certain flowers to poison people backstage or us poison ivy to give them a rash. I feel that if she did this sort of stuff we would atleast kno why shes into plant and all that stuff

    • Bobby Calloway

      Lol I love that idea. Not sure if she’s still calling herself ‘The Venus Flytrap of NXT’ though

      • NMKPLG

        rumour has it tamina is back after elimination chamber on smackdown! naomi might be winning the title and then feuding with her former team bad partner

        • Bobby Calloway

          I hope they don’t push Tamina for the title. She should be in a supporting role if she’s coming back.
