Funny how it works that way with the people you like but not with the people you don’t. You were one of the biggest critics accusing Becky of burying everyone.
No, it works with people that can actually elevate their opponents. Becky couldn't do that. I'm not picking and choosing based on favoritism. Charlotte didn't elevate NXT, either.

If it's six weeks, Asuka would be busy with Sasha for half that time and can finish off Nia in the remaining time.

Becky clearly elevated Asuka. It isn’t even debatable.
Not debatable? Asuka was NXT champ for 522 days, she was undefeated for 914 days, she was widely considered the best women's wrestler in WWE before she ever set foot on the main roster, she won the inaugural women's RR and had a marquee matchup at WM in her first year on the main roster, she did all that before she ever even wrestled Becky. If anything Becky has significantly hurt Asuka's stock.

They took her SD title and WM match away so they could push the whole Becky 2 Belts gimmick, she ended up in the fucking women's battle royal that she didn't even win, then she ended up in a random tag team and didn't get any ppv matches for 6 months, only to win the meaningless tag titles.

Then after losing to Becky at this year's RR she got murked by Shayna in 5 minutes at EC, she won MitB against a bunch of jobbers and was just handed the title by Becky, now she's losing to Charlotte on free tv and just barely eeking out a win in the rematch thanks to Charlotte being injured and feuding with Nia Jax on ppv. You really want to call that "elevated"? You really want to attribute anything positive in her career to Becky?

You clearly just hate Becky, talking about Asuka’s booking in matches Becky wasn’t even involved in. Elevating someone can only be done when you’re working with them.

Becky isn’t booking the shows. The times they have worked together Asuka has come out with her stock much higher. That’s a fact. Asuka has won 2 PPV main events through working with Becky. You think going from directionless to tapping out the hottest act in wrestling isn’t an elevation? Ok hater.

"Elevation" is not something that only lasts for one match, if you wrestle somebody and their career falls off a cliff, you didn't elevate shit. I don't expect you to agree that she hurt Asuka's career, but to think that she's helped it is ridiculous, Asuka is clearly a less important, less threatening character than she once was.

Asuka got screwed at WM so Becky could get pumped, how is that not her fault? "Oh well Becky doesn't book herself", funny how that doesn't work as an excuse for CHHHarlote, or Roman, or John Cena.

What the hell?

Becky has been elevating Asuka every single time she could in every promo she could, starting with ever since Asuka went to RAW


She kept talking her up and made her more relevant than she had been in 1.5 years. They did a couple of great matches together, and after Becky's feud Asuka screen-time increased immensely.

She has an out/excuse for EC as her arm was injured at the time.

"A bunch of jobbers" also include Shayna the woman who you say beat her in 5min.

And then She got to share a great moment with Becky that meant more than a win would have as it got more eyes on her.

Asuka was never going to be the undefeated empress like NXT, but she spent 1.5 years in limbo and during that time Becky lost to her clean at the height of her popularity and then elevated her again.

You don't get to compare her elevation to her Empress days, when Charlotte took a shit on her career after WM 34, you compare her to before her feud with Becky where she was and where she is after.

"Elevation" is not something that only lasts for one match, if you wrestle somebody and their career falls off a cliff, you didn't elevate shit. I don't expect you to agree that she hurt Asuka's career, but to think that she's helped it is ridiculous, Asuka is clearly a less important, less threatening character than she once was.

lmao reaching again. Asuka got screwed at Mania because they insisted on a 3-way instead of the logical Ronda/Becky match.

You're seriously blaming Charlotte taking the title from her 2 weeks before WM on Becky??
You know there's rumors this was a consolation to Charlotte crying about ESPN's name treatment?
Even if not true, this is ridiculous hatred.

It is not debatable that Asuka is better now after facing Becky.

So you’re blaming Becky that Asuka was buried six months before Becky worked with her? It was working with Becky that brought Asuka back to relevance. I’m not gonna waste my time on this debate. You clearly have irrational hatred for Becky Lynch & refuse to give her any credit because you’re a hater.

Ask an Asuka mark what their opinion of Becky is. It’s nearly unanimously favourable. They know working with Becky has massively elevated their favourite twice now. Compare that with Asuka marks opinion of Charlotte.

And Asuka losing the SD belt was about putting Charlotte over, not Becky. Charlotte pitches a fit about being portrayed as a “3rd wheel” & being called “Ric Flair’s Daughter” in the ESPN ad. Becky lost that belt immediately.

I swear other HW marks are just so jealous and bitter of Becky's success. Imagine thinking "Charlotte beating Asuka for the SD title, the title Becky lost to her, to be more important in a match she had no business in" is actually Becky's fault...
The mental gymnastics one has to do to shift blame is insane.

You people don't even know what elevate means anymore.

Lacey Evans was a rookie nobody cared about who was strutting to the ring doing nothing. Becky took a rookie to the main event of a PPV and made her a bigger name and more relevant. Lacey post-Becky feud became someone you knew well. She went from like a 2/6 to a 6/10. Elevated.

Asuka. Asuka was 100, after WM 34 she got beaten down to like 60, Becky worked with her TLC 18/RR 2019 and she got her back up to beast level 80/90.. then Charlotte came and pushed it down again.. and then Becky had to elevate it again. You do understand that elevate means bring to a higher position than before?

That's already 2, UNDENIABLE, facts.

As far as others,
Natalya? She got elevated during the feud and then pushed back to where she's always been.
Do these marks actually think if Sasha would have had a +1/4* better match with Nattie at SummerSlam somehow she was going to get elevated Nattie from where she's been for 11 years? delusional. There is no way, ZERO chance, Sasha would have been able to do the types of promos and get the fans invested in little build-up time (like 5 min each RAW), the way Becky was.

Sasha?
Are we going to act like the crowd was split 50-50 during that feud and that Sasha's initial shock return/pop was carried forward to later weeks?


Cause it wasn't. Sasha working with Becky made her leave her mark in a MOTYC and one of the best HIAC matches of the past decade after a 50/50 feud which she got the better end of Becky of multiple exchanges. Her going to SD and choosing to be Bayley's sidekick instead of keeping her attitude is what slowed her down. This isn't a Rhea Ripley case where she's still the same character but lost tons of steam.


Now, as far it goes,
Asuka's been champion 2 months now. Who has she elevated?
Bayley's been champion for 1 year? Who has she elevated?

I can't wait for Sasha to get her run and FAIL to elevate others (not really, but by their own logic, she will 🤣) and then you'll see the hypocrisy for real.

Keep using that clip as if it doesnt cover the fact that Becky didnt dominate the shit out of that feud. That feud was literally booked like the flair feud where fans claim it was 50/50 but Becky got the better of Sasha when it mattered. 50/50 lol more like 75/25. And it was Becky working with Sasha that got Becky the MOTYC not the other way around. I dare anybody to tell me that what Becky did to Sasha at COC didn't fuck the character so bad, that it established they weren't on the same level before those two even got to the cell.

And you're gonna deny that Sasha shit the bed in that promo?
You're gona pretend she was equally as over?


You mean how Becky was so angry she LOST the match, hit her with a CHAIR, gaining a significant advantage and then continuing the beatdown? Do you realize how much of a geek Becky would have looked if she had hit her with a chair, and then Sasha turned it around and beat her?

Keep playing junior.


She got the better of her here even after Becky threw her stomach first into that steel cart, no sold it, and then beat her.
Not to mention the numerous times with Bayley.

And yeah I know the story, Sasha-Asuka-Flair-Bayley don't have any 4 star matches except with each-other because they're GREAT, but when Becky also only has 4 star matches with them, its because she can't with others (just like them, but she sucks and can be carried while they're great). Fucking logic.

Charlotte being out is a big blow to the women's division especially with Becky gone as well. Now others like Asuka, Sasha, Bayley and so on will have to step up and try to fill the void.

I dont have to pretend cuz she was to the point where sites that normally kiss wwe's as were asking how sasha didnt come out of that feud with the belt. Sasha was trending after that final match, but yea she wasnt over cuz of that random promo.

Its almost as if you think nobody else saw the match. She lost the match on a random bullshit triviality, and yea if you're gonna sell the cage as a way that she cant escape, you probably shouldnt leave the other person in the middle of the ring crying after the hero got their hands on them.

Sasha standing tall- Inital beatdown , Bayley heel turn, final smackdown, Becky standing tall - every other time, including twice with flair in which they easily went over Sasha and Bayley despite hating each other.

Wanna try gaslighting again, cuz that first attempt failed.

Or wwe can do their job and build the divas division they way they shouldve done a long time ago. The fact that they're building Natalya again as opposed to Bianca or Shayna should tell you all you need to know.
