Number 1, they are heading that way, but a primary reason for it is that both Becky and Charlotte have gone away, and this stupid company has no interest in giving anyone else a chance.

Number 2, you can't compare it to Charlotte until it goes on for years and years and years to the detriment of everyone else in the division.

What they're doing now is actually telling a good story. Sasha is being built up for a match with Asuka that she will likely lose, that will lead to the big one with Bayley. They're telling a big story that will have a big payoff, and they're actually doing it incredibly well. You have to get the Bayley and Sasha act over for what comes at the end to matter. I see no reason to assume that this will go on past Summerslam, and until it does there is no reason to complain.

Ok yes Charlotte is hated for being on all 3 shows while Sasha and Bayley are loved despite also being on all 3 shows. This is not hypocritical imo. Charlotte was hated because fans simply don’t like her. The reason Roman Reigns was hated wasn’t because WWE gave someone a big push. WWE gave someone fans don’t like a big push. Becky got a HUGE push and the fans never turned on her because the fans love that woman. Now Bayley and Sasha have appeared on all 3 shows. Fans not hating them is not hypocritical. Many fans love Sasha and Bayley and have praised their work for months. We want to see more of them. Fans want to see more of wrestlers they like and want want to see less of wrestlers they don’t like. It’s that simple, it’s not hypocrisy. Charlotte was hated because she was s wrestler fans already did not like getting more TV time.

It’s not necessarily hypocritical because of fan preference. It’s more so about all the negative hallmarks of Charlotte’s three brand exposure being realized in most of Sasha and Bayley’s tru-brand run so far.

Charlotte was called out for beating Asuka all the time, but Sasha can get away with pinning Asuka clean?

Charlotte was attributed for tanking ratings yet RAW draws its lowest rating in a while and yet Bayley and Sasha aren’t anti-draws?

Supposedly, Charlotte was responsible for underused talent not appearing on RAW but Bianca Belair still not appearing on the show, Liv and Ruby still hardly being used, AND a Smackdown’s Sasha Banks challenging for a RAW title isn’t seen as a problem that should be pinned on them?

Of course, all of these side effects of overall viewership burnout and incompetent creative can’t be blamed on Sasha, Bayley, or anybody else. It’s just hypocritical how blatant tribalism decides to do away with the “correlation = causation” fallacy when their championed hero can’t play along with their narrative.

1. This was Sasha's first time beating Asuka at all and it was by roll up not some random match on raw that was in service to nothing.
2. Fair enough if you also note that she was part of what I believe is the only match that beat Jericho's ratings head to head on Wednesday
3 Liv and Ruby both have a storyline going, but yes over reliance on the horsewomen is a huge problem that I don't think anybody's arguing against.


Now if they had flairs five year head start, maybe those things would be a problem, but for now I see nothing hypocritical about any of it.

Another thread complaining about the 4HW, although 2 are not even tehre at the moment? ROFL

The more Sasha & Bayley the better. There is still enough other stuff on the shows I would reduce, before even thinking about reducing these few short segments with these two women got.

Are we seriously going to complain about Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Charlotte Flair (three of the best top women they have on the main roster atm [plus Asuka]) being featured on all 3 shows?

Jesus Christ, some of you folks will bitch about anything.

Edit:

For the record, some of you need to quit acting like any of those women are “killing” the ratings. The viewership will continue to stay low no matter who’s getting pushed or demoted; so knock it off with that nonsense.
