@llj It seems pretty apparent if you've been following RAW that Asuka's next challenger at TLC will not be Shayna, or Nia, or even Charlotte.
For the past several weeks, Retribution has been cutting promos specifically targeting Asuka. Reckoning (Mia Yim) has been calling her out on the show, saying that "dancing clown holding the RAW Women's title is part of the system holding us down".
Yes, it's that dumb. No, I don't expect Reckoning to get much offense in, if any. It'll probably be like how Bobby Lashley handled Slapjack at Hell in a Cell. A short 5 minute match where Slapjack got a small bit of offense in, but Bobby never looked in danger of losing.
Well I haven't. If it's true, that would definitely suck, even though there's no danger of Asuka losing the title in a Retribution "feud", it's one of the examples of why at this point I can't stand following this reign anymore.
No offense to Mia Yim, who is actually underrated I feel. But she will not be treated or built up compellingly in ANY way on the main roster.
That being said, Mia can take a good hard bump so if she were in a TLC match it would probably be better than people expect.
