    Sometimes I wish the WWE would let things play out and see how it fleshes out before making long term plans. I would hate to see Becky Lynch get the same kind of treatment that Braun Strowman got when he was getting red hot. Because of long term Mania plans with Roman, Braun's momentum cooled at a time where they should have pulled the trigger on him and changed course. I understand that Charlotte could go to RAW and leave Lynch Smackdown all to herself, but I have a feeling they don't want her to lose and having Lynch cheat to win really contradicts her mission.

    Let Lynch grow til Mania and let Charlotte counteract and do the same. There's more layers to Charlotte/Lynch that need to be told.. let them entertain us and if it's Becky in the end who seems like the better fit- then let her get Rousey. Not EVERYTHING has to be set in stone 9 months in advace without letting stuff flesh out. I hate that about the WWE. Competition is good, even in the scripted format. Let people impress you.

    "Because I'm not blonde enough, because I don't have enough enhancements"

    Damn...

    I agree with your assessment that this is the best work of her career so far and it is the most high profile angle she has been in since Mania 32.

    Becky is doing the best work of her WWE career since the heel turn. Her promos are good and meaningful. She is not stumbling or trying too hard.

    Her explanation of why she did what she did to Charlotte, may have actually been Becky voicing her true frustrations about Charlotte and the WWE.

    If the term Pipebomb, hasn't been thrown around since Punk, and then AJ Lee's Pipebombshell, then this may have been considered the most real promo in the past few years. AND in my opinion, it was the best, sincere, shoot promo the WWE has had since Punk in 2011, but it was lost because it was on Smackdown and given by Becky. But every word rang true, and the audience responded with..."yeah, that's true". And still the audience is behind Becky because they feel for her. Her heel turn wasn't a true heel turn, it was just Becky getting frustrated that everything is about Charlotte, and where is her opportunity?

    Below is the transcript of her explanation. and it's good.

    I don’t understand what people are saying to me when they say, ‘well done,’ because I went in there with the intention of winning the title and I currently do not have a title. And I have been burning a hole through the Women’s Division on SmackDown Live for the past few months and then Charlotte shows up and she gets handed a title opportunity and opportunistic as ever when I had that match won, she snuck in and she stole my victory from me one more time. And again she gets handed the gold and I’m left on the sidelines.

    So okay the crowd the cheered, but what does that mean when I haven’t accomplished anything? And I’m left there with one title while she’s had seven - maybe eight if you count NXT - I’m supposed to be satisfied with that? I’m supposed to be happy with that? That’s not enough for me.

    I appreciate that they wanted to see me win, but I didn’t get the gold and I think I’ve been preoccupied too much by keeping people on my side. And that hasn’t done me any favors. I have to re-evaluate everything and re-evaluate what I was putting my priorities on. And if that was getting the crowd on my side, if that was getting a friend on my side? Then I’ve been doing it wrong, because there’s one reason why I came to WWE and that was to be great and I’m not achieving that.

    So I have to look at everything, and look at the fact that I’m not on the front of the posters all the time. I’m not on the front of the DVDs. And why is that? It’s certainly not because of me. Because I have been working my ass off the entire time I’ve been here. I haven’t dropped the ball once. But any time that Charlotte Flair shows up, then it’s all about her. It’s all about her.

    When I was the first woman drafted to SmackDown Live, this show was entirely about me. This show was entirely about me. That title was built because of me. Because the people wanted me to have a championship. Because I deserved it. And because Charlotte Flair had stolen it from me, time and time again, when it was the Divas Title, or when it was the Women’s Title and before there was a brand split. And then of course she gets drafted to SmackDown Live and again, it becomes all about her.

    In 2017, I had one title match and that was at WrestleMania and it was a six-way? I haven’t been given a fair shot at all. I am the best on this roster, both Raw and SmackDown and I’ve proven that time and time again yet I don’t get the opportunity.

    Why is that? Is it because I’m not blonde enough? Is that it? Is it because I don’t have enough enhancements? Is that it? I’m treated like the red-headed stepchild of the entire Women’s Division. Yet I have proved time and time again that I am the moneymaker. That I am the person that people will tune in to see. That they will care about. That they want to see me win.

    Yet it’s being stolen from me every single time.

    She’s there crying about how it’s lonely at the top, well it’s not gonna be lonely for very much longer because I’m climbing to the top and I’m gonna break her jaw.

    Get used to it. She's not going anywhere but the top of the card, no matter where she is.

    Agreed.

    I wish WWE did more with Asuka than being used as someone to put over other female talents tbh.

    I actually love the way they went about adding Charlotte to that match because it works completely with their characters. Becky's always going to be the one who had to struggle to get her opportunities - it's even in her background story, starting to train at 15/16, travelling around Europe at 18/19, getting to America at around the same sort of time, working hard to make it to WWE. And then to even get a chance at a title shot she had to beat a procession of opponents and the champ herself.

    Meanwhile Charlotte got hired because of her surname, with no wrestling experience, and has had everything handed to her ever since. She was the first horsewoman to the NXT title, the first to get title shots after they were all called up, she's had opportunities with both the Raw and Smackdown titles, she's headlined Raws and pay per views. All because of her surname. And then she returns from injury and is immediately given an opportunity again without having to earn it.

    It's a great divide between the two of them.

    Now, I think the right step here is to turn Charlotte rather than Becky, and make her an entitled, up her own backside heel. That then gives her a clear character going in to a future match with Rousey, which rumour has it is scheduled for Mania 35, and gives that match a proper hook to get the crowd invested.

    I've seen a lot of people on social media unhappy with Charlotte's inclusion into the SD Title match. However it's clear from the TV that this is still a very Becky-centric story. Even if Asuka is added in this week to make it a 4-way, it's still Becky's story. It may not result in a title win for her, but it will be interesting going forward.

    I think there might not be as many "bookends" at Summerslam for all the women's matches to be honest. With Evolution a couple months away, I imagine creative are more likely to see that PPV as the more story concluding event.
