They came out during the Bianca match in Phoenix, what are you talking about? I honestly can't even remember if they did in the fatal 4 way. That's how little impact these matches have had.
I never said she's "untalented." I said she's not talented enough to get the push she's getting. She has a certain talent in a very one dimensional fashion that's good in short bursts but gets overexposed very quickly after that. She gets stale FAST. Zero justification for the booking she's gotten for the past 18 months. The end should've been when she dropped the title to Kairi.
You did say she's untalented right in this very thread. She isn't untalented at all. This role was the most perfect role they could have given her or else she could have been forgotten long ago. That suits you fine since you never like her anyway. Everybody in this forum knows how much you dislike her by now.
That's the difference between me and you on this. I don't hate the player, I hate the game.
And this other stuff about her being one dimensional is ridiculous. She's multi-dimensional. You could place her in any sort of program you could think of except for maybe a babyface role and she would do fine. Anybody would get stale in the amount of time they'd have to hold this belt. Even Kairi would get stale if she was a champ for this long.
The key to maintaining a talent is REACTION. Even if it's go away heat. You want to know how you fix go away heat? It's like this, the way you temporarily band-aid a go away heat situation on tv is you try to turn it into sensationalism type heat for the normies.
Not the guys like you and me who hang out in Wrestling Forum and go all elaborate and sperg about every single thing in wrestling, no, the single-minded ones who just watch the show with basic complaints. They start going "man, I'm sick of Shayna boo hoo" so the company goes ahead and stretches out the reign some more, and have her play with that go away heat just to get her more hated. Next you're going to tell me "that doesn't work" like the many goofs on this forum who don't see beyond a situation and just call everything unfixable. Guess what, it has worked on guys like Ciampa, and KO, and Alexa Bliss, and others that fans were sick of but got a ticket out of go away heat jail.
As for Duke & Shafir, I don't like them whatsoever, but their presence is a necessary evil for Shayna. You get Shayna in the ring with someone like Bianca, and she could destroy Bianca whether Duke & Shafir was in the picture or not, but the minor yet important difference is those two are these to make sure she is booed. If they weren't, Shayna would risk getting too over with the crowd or even worse draw no reaction at all. She got one heck of a boofest at Takeover and boos are food to her as long as she keeps doing what she's doing.
I nonetheless want it to end, because she's done enough. The program has extended well beyond its usefulness. If she doesn't lose that belt by the end of summer, they have without a shadow of a doubt abused the potency of a talented heel they could have made use of in far better ways than they have been doing.
