Most of the time Rhea is great human being, from tweets i read from twiter.
She had that one time on stream that her,Mansoor and Brennan williams make fun with their viewers for for getting "insult" for dontation so she said the word, and she did mastake.

She had "bad reign" with belt becouse they had problem last year with airing the tapings so as the result of that she had that reign with title. Altough i thing Toni had much worse title reign.

Anyway she stiil young and she the future of WWE women's division.

I have no fucks to give about what she or any wrestler says on twitter. I'm just being totally honest.

All I care about is where she is going to be positioned and it is most deserving to be high because she displays a great balance of power, agility, ring psychology, aggression and looks aesthetic all in one package. She is everything Bianca Belair wishes she could be in the ring.

Nor do I think her reign was bad at all, actually I thought it made a very competitive division when she was centered around it.

With NXT getting 2 hours when they move to USA they probably will push more women.

Makes me wonder if the Takeover cards will be 6 to 8 matches now to cap off more stories they will be telling due to NXT being given 2 hours now

Which brings us back to my initial question: why they didn`t do it before? Bringing Toni & Co over right now is a sign for some missed buildup in the last few months. I can even imagine they bring the women tag team title holders over to NXT here and there.

But will that really help the "green" wrestlers in the NXT roster? I mean, check RAW and SD. You got the very same people (men and women) in both shows, while others are not seen anymore. (Is the Ascension still alive?)

How often (not the injured!) did you see Asuka, Kairi, Lana, Dana, Naomi, Liv, Tamina or Sarah since MITB? And all of them were much more developed and pushed by WWE than Tay or Xia.

Don`t get me wrong, ofc they will push talent on NXT. But I guess there will be much less place for that than some people expect.

After going back a second time and watching the match a bit more carefully, and on request, I would have to say this was one of Tay's better matches.

Maybe I was being a bit harsh on her. She was actually doing some damage to Bianca. Course, she still lost, and it's never too wise to think you can dive on Bianca since she's much stronger than you, and can easily toss people around.

She still needs some work but this was a pretty decent showing. There's potential in Taynara. Unfortunately, she's now got significant jobber aura, and she needs to fix it soon or it's going to stick. I recommend she get a really good submission finisher into her arsenal. I'm not too big on her current one right now.

You left out Chelsea Green. I know she was injured but she’s cleared now and before she got hurt, she wasn’t used at all.They need to do something with her.

True. I think she was once on TV since then for a losing effort, but I am not sure.

Re: Why didn't they push a few more women in NXT before moving them to regular TV?

The most prominent women in the WWE programming:

Becky Lynch - 32 years old.
Charlotte Flair - 33 years old.
Sasha Banks - 27 years old.
Bayley - 30 years old.
Alexa Bliss - 28 years old.

At least 5 years the company can milk of every one of them, we know the amount of storylines and minutes assigned to women are not the same as those assigned to men, so pushing these 5 alongside the flavour of the month/ short-term plans like Nia Jax, Carmella, Lacey Evans, Ember Moon the company already has its female quota covered.

Shayna Baszler is 39 years old, that's why she has been so dominant in NXT and once she goes to the main roster (there will be a main roster now that NXT will be on USA?) she will get a dominant run until she is finally defeated,similar to Asuka's push.

They probably consider a "waste of time" to invest in the NXT women talent that they not consider a immediate profit investment when they can easily go after someone like Tessa Blanchard who has an already established name and it will not take time to place her as one of the most important names in the NXT brand.

Yes and no. Depends on who stays healthy. Remember when they needed an opponent for Becky on SummerSlam? That qualification match, which was booed down by the crowd? Or Dana Brooke being part of MITB?

For NXT it is even worse:
Maybe they even see investing time into the other women as a "waste of time", but what is the best they got now for TV? In the announced qualification match, which is Bianca vs. Io vs. Mia Yim, we see three opponents Shayna already had title feuds against this year and these are the names we were talking about anyway. Shayna is pretty old and people in his forum have different opinions about Bianca and Mia.

I totally agree, they can solve that a different way. So afterwards they have to start feeding (main) NXT with other shows talent like Toni etc. or they buy someone in, like you said. In the very end, one of their bigger own NXT talents (Io) was bought in also. All fine, but regarding NXT being a development brand which made sometimes minus the last few years, it is not impressive.
