The optimistic Asuka fan
Come on.Sorry, but no. That win wasn't a clean one. Charlotte got roughed up prior to the match to open the show and the commentary team brought it up more than a few times during the title match. She was being protected to a ridiculous degree here, there's no reason why Asuka couldn't have just beat her clean as a whistle and THEN Nia take Charlotte out. The injury before the match was small, but it was still noticeable. Hence, not as clean a win as you want to believe.
A clean win would be Asuka beating Charlotte like Charlotte beat her at Mania 34. THAT'S clean.
If you join the ring and are not forced to (e.g., title defence) it is your choice. Stop falling for that little WWE maneuvers to make everybody happy, when they booked themself into a corner. Everybody who has done sport with opponents knows that. People laugh about such people in RL, when they drop excuses. That is so ridiculous in RL. The most I love people, who start making excuses before they even lost. Why the heck they waste my time then and try to fight with me??
It was Charlotte`s choice to mess with Nia, just before she had a title match and obvisouly she didn`t see an injury in beginning. Like I said ... when we start taking that serious, then we also have to take all the REAL injuries serious, which the wrestlers are working with. Like I said, Sasha won the tag team title match with a seperated shoulder. The kayfabewise serious injury, like I said, was done kayfabewise AFTER the match.
But seriously, WWE will go on like that, if people here take this silly excuses serious. That makes the program even worse. Nobody really loses, cause everybody got an excuse. If you go to a competition and you can compete and you join the battle, then it counts! Your problems don`t count then!
For example I am a big Sasha fan, but it was her OWN fault losing the tag team title match last sunday. She allowed Regi hanging around her, she could have kicked the bottle out of the ring within 1 second, she simple could not have talked to Regi, etc. But she did it wrong and therefore it was her fault and so she lost. Not Nia`s fault, not Shayna`s fault. Shall they hang there and say: "uh oh Sasha, please sort your problems with that guy there out, so that we can beat you in 30 mins and it counts then".
