Would you have sacrificed Asuka's championship & WM moment so Becky could be Becky 2 belts?

I know these types of questions can cause heated debates.

Some are very pro Becky, some are very pro Asuka. While others dont care for Becky or for Asuka.

But I discussing these kinds of things and to see where people fall in to these types of situations.

When it comes to Becky some say shes cringy,shes not that athletic, she cant sell right.

As for Asuka its she cant speak English, shes overhyped, shes not THAT good in the ring, she buried the womens division in NXT.

Despite what you think of both, would you have sacrificed Asuka's championship, her WrestleMania moment, to go from having a spot to the main card to then be reduced to the preshow?

Put yourself in Asuka's boots. Imgaine on the day of SD mere days away from WM35. You come into the buidling wonder who is gonna be your opponent for WM by determining a number 1 contender via fatal four way. You even shoot a backstage segemnt hyping it up. Only to be told a couple hours away from going on air that thqt match has been scrapped, you will no longer defend your SD women championship at WM. Instend you will now have a match with Charlotte and give her the belt on a regular edition of SD.

Its not like we're talking about Nia Jax,Dana Brooke, even Sarah Logan. We're talking Asuka, one of the best all around performers in that ring. Asuka checks off every box with flying colors what a wrestling performer should be. Asuka has more charisma,charm, and personality dripping off her multi colored hair dye than most wrestlers have in their entire body that includes the males.

Dont get me wrong. Im a fan of Becky. I think shes one of the best things in wrestling today. Im happy for her that she got to main event WM making history. But would I have gave up Asuka's championship and moment at WM so Bekcy can make history being Becky2belts? HELL NO.

Not only that, you denied Sonya or Mandy, or Carmella ,or Naomi a WM moment and main card match as well

What happened should never should have happened. Like Luke and Anderson losing the belts to Braun and Seth. SHOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED.

Ronda should have cost Becky the title in the Royal Rumble match with Asuka. Then it should have just been Becky/Ronda for the Raw title in the main event.

Though, Becky 2 Belts was an awesome name and shirt.

the easy solution would have been becky vs ronda & asuka vs nepotism at wrestlemania

with both becky and asuka winning clean & decisively

but

GODDAMN PAL, CAN'T HAVE THAT

I am big fans of both Becky and Asuka, two of my favourites in WWe right now, but if the match at Wrestlemania should have been a three way, it should have had Asuka in there and not Charlotte. Or Asuka v Charlotte 2 for the title.

The fatc they didn't want her going int heir as champion was a big FU to her win over Becky at the Rumble. Which was a great match. Asuka made Becky tap, which automatically makes her championship at Mania mean something. She had a reason to be at Mania because her title now had weight.

Yes

Best case scenario, I'd try finding another spot for Asuka on the card that didn't involve a championship. She definitely deserves better than she gets. If they honestly couldn't find anything better for her to do than throwing her in the battle royal, then at least have her win it. Carmella was a terrible choice for the winner - So terrible I had to actually Google WM35 just now because I couldn't even remember who won the damn thing.

Anyway, the dual champ thing coming out of Mania was a good idea and made the main event feel even more important, so I wouldn't change it. I don't know if I would necessarily add Asuka to the match either - it was better left as a three way and it was cool seeing Becky as the only one without a belt heading into the match, but the only person with one (actually two) coming out of it.

I would have done the logical thing and have Becky fight Ronda in a one on one match for the Raw Women's Title winning clean with the disarmer, and I would have had Asuka vs Charlotte with Asuka winning to avenge her being squashed last year. Then have her go on a dominate championship run.

With Becky 2 Belts, they should have had her hold on to the titles for a long time. I'm sure if Charlotte or Alexa were holding both titles at the same time they wouldn't have had them lose them so quickly.

I would have booked Becky vs. Ronda and Charlotte vs. Asuka as titlematches for mania.

Becky deserves everything she got, winning the Rumble, best the first female WM main eventer, and having two championship belts because she is the most popular wrestler in wrestling. I don't blame Becky or Charlotte or any other female wrestler for Ausku basically being a jobber in WWE. Ausku was undefeated coming from NXT, she lost to Charlotte at WM and started to be a mid card. Ausku was champion for a brief time but lost it to Charlotte. If I were to change one thing, Ausku wuold be champion for a longer time but would lose to Becky sooner or later.

Asuka was one of the worst female champions in recent history and shouldn't even have won the title in the first place

Her getting beaten by a future hall of famer was a joy to watch

Taking the title from her was the right decision.

The show was five hours long despite having three Championship matches last 4 minutes or less. If Asuka had been fighting someone for the SmackDown title it would have probably been another stupidly short match, it would have made the event longer, and it would have felt completely irrelevant considering that the last two champions have basically said they're not interested in fighting her, instead they're fighting in the main event.

The first ever women's main event deserved the kayfabe prestige of being a unification match.
