    you know the stipulation will be if Becky wins it's a triple threat and if she loses she's banned from Mania or some shit

    it's gonna be a triple threat because Charlotte has to be a part of every single major women's event no matter what

    Right and while that sucks or not 100% necessary, to me, at least they're acknolweding that she's that type of character.

    It's Reigns. It's what Reigns should have been. Charlotte needs to be that heel. It's a good story.

    Now while i thought Becky vs Ronda was a good enough story on its own, i like this Charlotte as vince's "#1" angle too

    For some reason it didnt occur to me that that's exactly why they're gonna do a "big event" with Ric. There's gonna be a cake, Becky's gonna be a caterer, and someone's going through it.

    Also, at least its not Alexa Bliss, who would drag the match down. Charlotte can go...she's got solid pacing and selling. She can carry the spots when Ronda gets lost.

    It's Reigns. Reigns and Charlotte can both "go". It's just that they were both put in positiions that sucked character wise. Charlotte is "Vince's ideal #1 woman"... DO that. Do that angle and let us boo her.

    Now how the hell do they get to 4hw vs 4hw? no clue

    Still maintain that there is nothing wrong with her moonsault. The problem is nobody wants to catch her. Which I can understand. And maybe you could make the argument that for that reason she shouldn’t do it.

    I suspect thats a long time off. Although WM ending with Sasha/Bayley/Becky as champs and Charlotte not would be a nice twist on the usual

    They can still turn whoever they need to turn to make it happen. The only problem for me is duke and shafir aren’t believable as threats to the wwe horsewomen.

    yeah maybe preppyak is right with that's not happening for quite some time so for now...whatever

    although someone from the WWE has to eventually defect and turn on them (but thats another dream booking rant for another year)

    Exactly this. Girls got one of the best looking moonsaults out there on its own, and that corkscrew one is insanity. I think the issue is that she's bigger than just about everyone else on the roster aside from like, 3 people, and for her to hit it flush to the outside could seriously fuck someone up, so they rely on her landing mostly on her feet without anyone actually trying to catch her. And like you said, for that reason maybe they shouldn't do it. But to somehow place the blame on Charlotte, as if the person on the receiving end isn't the one bearing the responsibility to get into place to make the contact look good, is so silly.

    I think this is the same reason why when she goes for the move on a downed opponent in the ring, she almost always lands on her shins/knees. At first I thought maybe she was nervous about landing flat like that and popping an implant again, but over the past couple months we've seen her take way crazier bumps than a moonsault.

    This is a really weird tweet, made even weirder by the fact that its on my timeline because Lana retweeted herself...

    And if the rumors are true

    Ronda is leaving possibly leaving after WM to try and have a kid...so, if that happens, there's at least like a year and a half before they could even do that. Like Survivor Series 2020 or something. And by then, maybe Schafir and Duke are ready

    What does that move effectively do? She never makes contact with anyone why do it
     
  21. domotime2

    It's an Albany Expression Prestigious

    Look. Becky vs Rousey was the easy, obvious main event. There's a reason why Austin over HBK and Austin over Rock weren't triple threats.

    BUT... i try.... i try and meet these people (vince) half way. If we're doing this. At least, do it in an interesting way. And this is.

    And hey... who knows...maybe there's a 1% chance of this not happening (i'm pretending that i dont read the internet)

    it's because WWE writers don't have a plan for anything - there's no journey - they make this shit up as they go hours before the show goes live

    Charlotte winning the belt to close out Mania would be the worst ending in the history of WrestleMania
