Nikki Cross and Ember Moon come to mind for that. I don't think those two have come close to any of their matches since their work with Asuka. Mickie James match pretty much put her back on the map. She had good matches with Bayley too.

For Shayna, her matches with Kairi were good. But has she had any MOTY contenders since debuting. I can't name any.

Asuka. Without question. While the end of her run was beginning to run its course, she had the better opponents and matches while also having a much more defined presence than Shayna, in my opinion. That and the women's division was still decent (although the decline did start with Asuka's reign) where with right now, it's a wasteland and every over face comes off as a dumbass or geek and the strongest booked opponents have no consistent overness behind them (*coughmiacough*)

Yeah Asuka. She had better matches, she has more charisma in one finger than Shayna does in her entire body, and she had a unique presence to her that Shayna simply doesn't. I DO think that they overdid it near the end (Ember should have won their second match imo) and the decline of the division started towards the end of her reign, but it was still salvageable, until Trips let his MMA boner take over the booking.

Also Asuka's matches were at least varied and different from each other. Shayna's follow the same basic formula every fucking time.

Also Asuka did it FIRST, so she has an advantage there. It was simply too soon to do another super-long/dominant reign so relatively quickly after she left. The division never had a chance to really recover because they had Shayna start burying it.

When Io fucking Shirai, perhaps the best female wrestler on the planet, certainly top 3 or 4, is booked like "generic careless idiot WWE babyface #742" so that Shayna can STILL retain the title, there's a problem here. Hell even when the babyfaces try to help each other, they STILL cannot beat Shayna (Takeover War Games and XXV for examples), so they look extra-hapless actually.
