Re: Is Charlotte vs. Trish the worst "Big Match" Build of all time?

Not only that, but Charlotte challenges Trish to a match instead of Trish challenging her to try and shut her up.
That actually makes sense. Charlotte is the one angling for a match at SummerSlam, and was going on last week about (though it might have been a .com exclusive, no idea) how you can't leave her off of SummerSlam because she's too important. Trish has no reason to challenge Charlotte because she was there for something completely unrelated and wasn't there to pick a fight.

I didn't watch the build to this, but at least they gave it a segment. The worst build I've ever seen for a big match was a Survivor Series 2009 main event between Cena, Michaels and Triple H for the WWE title. I don't remember the circumstances of that program, but that is the GOLD STANDARD of not building a feud in my mind. I cannot tell you a thing about that program, I think all they did was have Michaels and Triple H crack jokes in the back for a few weeks. Somebody who remembers it better than me than clarify hopefully, but I've never seen anything like it, and especially for such major stars.

I think the match pretty much builds itself to be honest. Anything they do could not have made you want to see it anymore than you do already if that makes sense. Any build would only serve to make it worse (see Melzter and Alvarez how to book a wet dream below if you have 1 minute)
Spoiler for Big Daddy Dave at 1:48:


The only thing they should have done differently is start it on the legends RAW.

I guess my main annoyance is Charlotte's character has never expressed the desire to be the greatest of any generation until last week where she said it randomly. Plus why was Trish even on Smackdown? Like what was her motivation to even be there? Nothing about the build felt natural it was all crammed within two weeks. Charlotte should have been talking crap about legends for months or beating up Lita or expressing her desire to be the best of all time. Instead we don't see her for months practically and, just to rush this feud into existence, she randomly says she wants to be the G.O.A.T and challenges Trish. It would be different if there was a history between the two previously but there isn't. Trish just happens to randomly show up for an in ring interview, which they never randomly do, the week after Charlotte says she wants to be the best of all time. That's the entire feud. Completely thrown together in two weeks, just seems incredibly lazy.

Re: Trish Stratus vs. Charlotte Flair

All this blonde talk I just though of this now.

Lets say if Lita was blonde and Trish was brunette, would Lita get all the title reigns and accolades Trish got?

I remember on Raw talk (with the infamous Bayley self burial) Lita said her and Trish are friends but she wanted those opportunities WWE gave Trish.

Re: Trish Stratus vs. Charlotte Flair

The feud is pretty rushed but as a huge fan of Trish Stratus it'll be great to see her have another match. I think they'll work together extremely well. Charlotte will make her rise to the occasion and i'm looking forward to it!

Re: Trish Stratus vs. Charlotte Flair

The more I think about this match, the more I'm starting to realize the design. This aint about giving Charlotte a summer slam opponent, it's about setting up a wrestlemania opponent for her.

Prediction: Trish wins to the shock of many, doesn't stop there, she goes on to take the title off either Bayley or Ember, Charlotte gets her win back at WrestleMania. WWE likes to do things like this alot

Re: Trish Stratus vs. Charlotte Flair

They'll probably just change it to a tag team match again the morning of the show

Would like to see that, But taking the title off of Bayley

How long of a Title Reign do you want out of Trish?

If they're doing it like I suspect they'll likely give it to her at the royal rumble to give enough of a buildup to wrestlemania without having to have Trish hold the title for too long.
