Becky Lynch is the Boston Red Sox of WWE

People I hear in the IWC, keep talking about the Becky hype dying down. Well to me it is no shocker. She was a true underdog, the anti hero of WWE. Fighting the machine. The moment Vince relinquished that strangle hold. And she went over in the main event of WM. Regardless of what people think of the actual match. She made it to the top of the mountain. Where does she go from here? Downhill. That is not a slight on Becky. I Think she is very charismatic, and a great performer. I personally would of booked Charlotte to win the belts. And have Becky and Charlotte feud. Even if it is the billionth C and B Feud. They are the Orton and Cena of the Womens Division. But you would still have Becky as an underdog.

What do people think that Cena/Becky segment was for, pre mania? Passing the torch in some ways. Becky is the new Cena. Tall Poppy Syndrome well run wild in her career from this point on. People who claimed to love her, well no longer profess too. Believe it or not some in the wrestling community turned on Rock and Austin. Internet was just as prevalent it is now.

My point is I think people were expecting to much post mania. Problem with giving the audience what they want. Their is nothing left to give. I feel Rondas departure has made the womens divison feel increasingly obsecure.

I feel she needs to feud with Shayna pretty soon, There's plenty of reasons for Baszler to want to avenge Ronnie's loss at Mania, Seems out of the question now that she's stuck in NXT.

Re: Becky Lynch is the Boston Red Sox of WWE

This is the thing with Underdogs, with anyone who fits the mould of being held down, or held back. Once they've achieved the very thing that they were being held back from, thats really it. It would've happened with Bryan post WM30 if he didn't get injured, and the Kane feud was a start in that direction. Its happened with Kofi already (the flip flopping WF members dont help), and its happened to Becky. Once they've climbed that mountain that the character arc revolved around, things can only go downhill.

Re: Becky Lynch is the Boston Red Sox of WWE

I think they maybe had a story for her with Sasha after Mania planned but obviously that couldn't happen so they had to go with Lacey instead. And it's hard to really invest in a story where you don't really care much about the opponent.

Re: Becky Lynch is the Boston Red Sox of WWE

The Becky Two Belts thing was actually really good and was over with the fans but the WWE had to scrap that in order to give Charlotte another meaningless title win. Becky's new character was at her best when she wasn't an underdog, they reverted back to that character trait and damaged her character because of it. Much like with DB, Becky has evolved pass being an underdog and should never be booked like one again. The only good thing about Becky facing Lacey is that Becky has pretty much been dominated this entire "feud", it's one-sided as it should be because Lacey isn't a credible threat. But Becky really doesn't have anyone to feud with on Raw because of what Ronda did to the division, with Alexa possibly still being uncleared to wrestle and Sasha being absent the Raw women's division is at it's weakest point at the moment, possibly the weakest a woman's division has been in the WWE since women like K2 and Nikki Bella were champions.

This.

You'd think they'd stop with this lazy booking story.

When the shows are being re-written 5 minutes before they go on air there's no time for anything else.

Do Alexa fans actually have zero self awareness? Do you know how absurd it is that Bliss fans keep throwing this statement around? I get you're upset because Ronda came in and ended Alexa's reign of terror, but the division that Ronda Rousey was handed was in tatters because of Alexa's reign of terror. I think you know its true as well.

And Nikki Bella is one of the better Female Champions in recent years. Good promos, good matches, and never buried anyone.
