OK. A few things to unpack here. Yes, the team is weird. It's not bad and they work well in the ring together but yes it feels random. HAVING SAID THAT, I think there are a few things you should keep in mind...

Asuka turning heel...a heel turn only works if people are invested in something or someone first. This is not the case on the main roster right now. Crowds like Kairi, but they are still getting to know Kairi. The only really TRULY liked woman on the roster right now is Becky and Asuka in a program with her is not happening now (and quite frankly I don't think it should happen right now).

So, if Asuka is turning heel, the logical thing is to get people invested in Kairi first, and the idea of Asuka and Kairi as a team. Asuka smashing Kairi randomly next week won't do anything for either Asuka or Kairi. Kairi is already well liked but the time for an Asuka heel turn is WAY early. If you do it in September (or even later) after they have won and lost together as a team for a while, Asuka turning on her has way more impact--Asuka would get more heel heat and Kairi would hopefully someone the fans have come to know and love more. But doing it now? I don't think the reactions would be strong enough.

Having said all this, I have no doubt there is no actual plan going on here. This is likely just a random team. But the idea of Asuka randomly turning heel NOW is just way too off in timing too.

Now, the Sky Pirates. The Sky Pirates were a great team in the ring but Io needed to develop more on her own to the NXT fanbase. Some people can disagree all you want but Io being attached to Kairi did more harm to Io than Kairi. Nobody knows who Io is outside of being Kairi's friend. Now, they will.

Re: The Pirate Princess: Kairi Sane Thread

The problem with them as a tag team is that it feels like a case of "put them together, because we have nothing else for them to do right now." It's the really lazy/predictable way to go.

Also since the IIconics, a comedy jobber team, are the champs instead of Sasha & Bayley (two talented wrestlers), even the inevitable title match doesn't feel as "big" as it could have.

Re: The Pirate Princess: Kairi Sane Thread

Yikes. She really needs to stop doing that elbow at house shows, especially now that she's on the main roster. I wish someone would tell her that. Save it for big matches only.

And the team is random but whenever they get the titles, they can go back to NXT and do some stuff which is worth it for me. Better that way until the singles scene clears up, because it's going to be Becky vs. Vince's blondes for a while yet to come.

Re: The Pirate Princess: Kairi Sane Thread

Yeah, I saw it. I can't even get mad anymore. Everything is circling the drain so this doesn't surprise me.

THE KABUKI EXPERIENCE!

It's not a downright terrible name, but....

Yeah house shows are about pacing yourself. No need to put on the greatest show, just hit your moves and try not to completely phone it in for the audience. But, that elbow is over and it's part of the formula. I can see the WWE not caring that doing it 130 or so times a year will grind her body down before she even gets close to Asuka's age.

In this sense putting her in tags to ease her in to the schedule actually cuts down on some of the energy she expends. Imagine being a champion and doing this tour in singles matches. It would be brutal.

It's 100% a Vince thought up name, I'm sure of it. I have found it odd how Kairi and Asuka have appeared every single week, which is unusual for ANYONE on Smackdown. That tells me Vince had some real input in this team's creation and there's a decent chance they are going to get a strong push if that's what you're looking for. We all know he's only interested in pushing the stuff that came from his giblet little mind.

Kairi might have come up to the MR at the worst possible time it would seem.
