Every babyface doesn't have to be clean cut. They are allowed to flip out and attack their opponent in my eyes even if it makes them look like a sore loser. I'm tired of this traditional box that WWE places all of their heels and babyfaces in. Its okay to change it up 10-20% of the time. So Io winning the title in Toronto due to a meaner character change is fine by me if that's the route they are going. It adds another layer to her character. I'm tired of the happy go lucky shit from WWE baby faces anyway. People are going to cheer regardless so fuck it. If not, then its shit booking to have Shayna win tonight.It was enough to justify another title match. Shayna is throwing a fit about it on twitter, and WWE is outright saying the war between these two is far from over. I imagine Shayna will probably defend the title against Mia in the meantime, but it'll likely be a filler title defense since they have 8 weeks of TV time to fill before Toronto.
That was awesome. Thanks for posting as I didn't watch the show tonight. There will definitely be a rematch and Io will be more ferocious the 2nd time around, which is fine by me.Here is the post match assault by the way. The clip didn't capture the actual aftermath though, which is unfortunate.
The crowd chanted for tables after the chairsault, chanted ONE MORE TIME, and also chanted YOU DESERVE IT at Shayna after she was laying on the ground in pain.
The two major differences are that Asuka was a lot more popular than Shayna and the NXT women's division was a lot thinner when she was champ.This is honestly hilarious.
Everyone thesedays endlessly bitches and cries and moans about heels never winning clean. Then when a heel wins clean because said heel isn't some Indy spot monkey everyone bitches, moans and cries about that.
And for everyone saying Shayna is killing the division or burying everyone, this is the exact same thing Asuka did and everyone adored her reign.
The hypocrisy from wrestling fans is always astounding.
The popularity thing just exposes the hypocrisy though. If something is only bad when someone you dont like is doing it then you're being a hypocrite about it.The two major differences are that Asuka was a lot more popular than Shayna and the NXT women's division was a lot thinner when she was champ.
It's not hypocrisy, it's a fact that Asuka was a bigger draw than Shayna. It made sense for her to be champ.The popularity thing just exposes the hypocrisy though. If something is only bad when someone you dont like is doing it then you're being a hypocrite about it.
The division is still pretty thin now, they haven't built up many other women.
I'd understand your frustration if Shayna wasn't great. I get worked by her every episode, hating her guts. But, she's a dominant MMA fighter. A clean win makes sense. Also, this was not a clean win. Her buddies interfered and distracted Io.No its Triple H's fault, cause he doesn't care about anyone in the division except Shayna.
How long was Candice sitting around doing nothing? For the longest time she was just Gargano's wife, only now is she kinda picking up some wins, had she been getting a push a few months ago she'd be in a better position and credible enough to take the title.
Same with Mia Yim, shes been signed a long while now and again is only now just getting some kind of push.
Triple H has just left alot of these women behind and not put any time into building them up to be credible challengers for Shayna.
That's because Shayna is the most badass female wrestler in NXT. Say what you want, there is no one who can win clean against her and make it come off as legit. She's the Brock Lesnar of the womens' division in NXT.There is legit no one else in the division other than Io that deserves to take that title, not Mia, not Candice, they aren't anywhere near ready or good enough right now.
And if they plan on Io taking the title at a later date its fucking dumb they had Shayan beat her clean, that makes no sense at all. Io has no claim to get another shot now, she lost fair and square. Shayna even had her backup taken out and Io still lost, so they told us Io isn't good enough to beat Shayna even when Shayna has no help.
I'm convinced Triple H has no plan at all for whos gonna take the title off Shayna, he's just made up his mind Shayna is gonna beat everyone she faces and surpass Asuka's streak. Next she'll likely beat Mia Yim on an episode of NXT, and then go on and defeat Candice maybe at a Takeover. Then she'll likely just go around and defeat everyone shes already beaten again.
This division is fucking dead man, Shayna has beaten everyone in it and the entire division looks like chumps in comparison to Shayna.
What a bald-faced lie. I remember Asuka's reign, being a giant weeb loser I fucking loved it, but every week all you had to listen to was:And for everyone saying Shayna is killing the division or burying everyone, this is the exact same thing Asuka did and everyone adored her reign.
Also they made her look like a complete idiot, Shayna's goons come out to interfere but Candice comes out and takes them out. What does Io do during this? does she capitalize on a downed Shayna? no she stands there cheering on Candice as she beats up Shayna's goons, literally stands there watching the whole brawl, while Shayna is getting up and recovering.Mos of the show was really good, but THIS was the worse part of it (much like the last Takeover it would seem).
They made Io look so fucking pathetic here:
-She costs Kairi her shot at ever being able to challenge for the NXT Women's title ever again, and then has to watch as Shayna and co beat the shit out of Kairi and run her out of NXT.
-She vows to avenge Kairi, and we get badass kendo stick wielding leather jacket wearing Io.
-She has tons of momentum.
And, she just loses, via tap out no less. When people say that Triple H's obsession with Shayna and co is hurting the division as a whole, this is the kind of stuff that they're talking about. Io fails to avenge her friend, fails to get redemption, and just looks like an
