Not doing Asuka vs Ronda streak vs streak was a huge mistake

Asuka should have never lost her streak and should have faced an undefeated Ronda in the main event at WM35. It would have been a better story and better match than what we got. Now the first women's WM main event is going to go down in history as a mediocre match.

Re-joining the forum after multiple bans is also a huge mistake.

Re: Not doing Asuka vs Ronda streak vs streak was a huge mistake

My god, are people ever going to stop beating this particular dead horse? Face it Asuka hasn't had a decent feud on the main roster and it's clear the WWE doesn't trust her to be in the major feuds. Besides, what the hell were they going to with her and Rousey to fill TV for three months?

It wasn't a mistake ending her streak because they value Charlotte more than her. It wasn't a mistake to not do her vs Rousey at WrestleMania because it would have been boring TV and nobody would have cared because the majority of the vocal fanbase were clamouring for Becky to be in that spot. The quality of the match is irrelevant and it's safe to argue that there is no proof that Suka would have made that match any better than it was. That's without mentioning that there have been clunkers of main events before and there will be more in the future. The only thing that hindered the main event of being the moment it deserved to be was that the finish was bad.

Asuka would crack cold fusion if she had the proper funding! Way to hold her back, Universe!

First off that sounds like shade being thrown at Becky when you said the first ever women's main event was mediocre, Just accept that Becky has that accolade now.

As for Asuka they should have had a short feud before Ronda left I think Asuka would have obviously been used to put her over but it would have been excellent for sure.

Asuka could easily have lost steam and be labelled super Askua if shes kept on being undefeated for that long.

It would definately not be a better story. WWE blew it, but there was so much story to tell between Becky, Charlotte and Rhonda. They all had issues with each other, stemming all they way back to the attack on raw.

It would probably be a better match. But the big WM matches have always been about the spectacle rather than ring work.
Just look at some of the biggest matches in WM history. Not many 4-5 star matches on that list.

Re: Not doing Asuka vs Ronda streak vs streak was a huge mistake

That would have flopped so hard. Asuka isn't nearly over enough to main event Wrestlemania nor is she capable of effectively hyping a match. No, awful idea. The streak had went on long enough. Summerslam that year was the absolute latest time it could've been dragged out to, and even that would be pushing it.

Hiroshi Tanahashi/Kazuchika Okada/Minoru Suzuki/Daniel Bryan/Asuka

Samoa Joe/Tetsuya Naito/Tomohiro Ishii/Meiko Satomura/Jay White

Re: Not doing Asuka vs Ronda streak vs streak was a huge mistake

Ronda was too high profile to put in a feud against Asuka. That and let's be honest, Asuka wasn't a top card wrestler even with the SD title, if anything, they made her "run in the background" to Becky and Charlotte. I mean I'm not saying it wouldn't work, Asuka don't have much mic skills, and Ronda was only good on the mic when she's legit pissed, so really could have done all the talking with their in-ring skills instead.
