To be The Man, WOOOOOO! You CAN'T beat The Man!
The following is not intended to be some 'Women's wrestling sucks' caveman shit, so please don't bring that in here. This hopefully will shine light on why both sides should be pissed.
Last night's PPV revealed the hypocritical booking of the Women's Revolution, and how, if you're a fan of Women's wrestling, was a smack in the face.
Last night held a match, a no DQ match at that, where a man and a woman squared off against another man and woman. But the stipulation was that neither male touch the females, and vice versa.
But as Bryan Alvarez pointed out in his review, it was a no DQ match. So.......what happens if the opposite sex laid their hands on the other?
Well, we soon found out as a woman wrestler attacked a male opponent with a kendo stick repeatedly. Nothing happened. Everything was booked as 'normal'.
Fast forward to the finish. Corbin lays out Becky Lynch with his finisher. Nothing wrong with that entertaining spot. Except WWE books it to where we are supposed to feel like that was 'wrong'. The commentators gasped, Rollins was booked to be the 'male that saved his girlfriend', and even the damn crowd thought it was 'wrong' as they reacted like they never seen such an act. Right after an entire match where the women beat on the men, and even 2 weeks ago Becky destroying the career of Maria's husband as he tapped.
Now to Becky Lynch, who has been labeled 'The Man', is leading the women wrestling of this company, and who is/should be looked at as an equal.
What does it tell her fans when 'The Man' gets a move put on her from a male wrestler, and she is booked as 'a woman who got beat by a man, someone needs to save her'? It made 'The Man' gimmick look like a Halloween costume, a 'that's cute, she's calling herself the man lol!' statement from WWE.
It tells me, and hopefully all the wrestling fans in the world that WWE couldn't give 2 shits about this 'Revolution'. It's a farce, and a product that they can't even book right.
I think last night destroyed 'The Man' gimmick, and showed to me that the WWE, and even their fans are still not ready for women's wrestling.
