I'll give her credit, the Natalya feud exceeded expectations. The Lacey feud was beyond horrible though.
Indeed. As great and as over as Becky is there is really only so much she can do when given low tier opponents for months. She needs viable opponents to face otherwise it just drags her down.

Again, I am really hoping we don't get more Lacey or Nattie tonight. Still I suspect the feud with Nattie will continue into Clash of Champions, unfortunately.

I just don't see how the Natalya feud can continue. The champion made the challenger tap out, you don't get more definitive than that. Lacey got title shot after title shot despite tapping out clean every time too though so it's certainly possible with this lazy ass company.

Anything other than Ronda (not happening), Asuka or Sasha would be real underwhelming for me. I wouldn't be surprised to see her end up facing Alexa and Nikki at Clash of Champions tbh.

Well Nattie already hinted on twitter that the feud wasn't over so I am expecting her to show up to confront Becky again tonight. Best we can hope for is that it just leads to a match on RAW and Becky wins and moves on.

The Kabuki warriors are clearly losing tonight but I don't have much hope in them using Asuka for a singles championship match unfortunately.

I guess for the time being as long they don't don't take the title from Becky (which would be foolish to do) we'll just have to endure this phase of her title reign until Ronda or Sasha come back or they call someone up to face her.

Natalya tapped clean. She better be done. If we can't have Sasha Banks, then Asuka needs to turn heel on Kairi and Paige tonight in their tag title match loss.

That is the best option for Becky right now.

Re: 8/12 RAW Discussion Thread: Rollins Slayed The Beast

Alright, I'm peaking in tonight and I'll probably LOL at anything that isn't the fiend, but are we in agreement that was one of the most boring Summerslams in a while? When not even Trish returning is interesting, something is wrong.

Hope tinight they push Wyatt hard. He needs to be made into the top heel. Now.

You are correct of course but I think we'll be stuck with more Nattie/Lacey for the time being. They even advertised Becky vs Lacey in a title match for tonight's RAW in a dark match.

Yeah it is really not ideal that Becky has to feud with low tier opponents for months coming out of winning the Mania main event.

Bray Wyatt and Goldberg were the only entertaining parts of the show. Was a very, very boring Summerslam but at least those two parts were fun. Hopefully they build on both tonight.
