Re: Women getting better, men's relegation, intentional?
No, it's not intentional. This is simply what happens when the men's division is all about one guy and that one guy ends up being put out of action for a long time. It's also what happens when you stop pissing around with trash like Carmella and push women who are actually capable of having great matches.
I think it's silly to suggest this was some kind of secret plan by WWE. The women's division was still a dumpster fire as recently as July. They stumbled into this by accident and deserve credit only for going with the flow. Even then, they almost didn't. Look how badly handled Becky was in the immediate aftermath of her turn. All that hype from Summerslam and what happens next? The most generic, tone deaf heel promo ever. It was an embarrassing blunder even by this company's standards.
The women's division still isn't even doing that well. Put Becky, Charlotte, Asuka and Ronda to one side and look at the rest of it. The top level might be stronger than the men's division right now, but go beyond that and it's just as rubbish. We'll see this in full effect once Becky (and probably Charlotte too) jump ship to Raw. The Smackdown division will sink faster than the Titanic and the men will retake the spotlight.
