Why do you think they're doing this crutch bullshit at live events? Of course they're trying it out there because they're gonna do this on TV.

Some of the crowd is behind her but not all. This tweeny back and forth crap where she works face one night and heel the other has confused the casual fan. They have to set it in stone so the casuals & kiddies know.

You mean Charlotte, Becky and Bayley who have been dominating the show for months got a bigger pop than someone who hasn't had a real relevant feud since last September? Wow, what an observation. Just out of curiosity: Did Becky and Charlotte get over by faking injuries or because they were allowed to kick ass?



Seriously, dude. Judging how big her babyface pops are right now compared to those chicks is fucking ridiculous.

Sep 2: Alexa & Nikki working heel against Becky & Bayley who had not turned yet going into the match. Working babyface against Mandy & Sonya on SD.

Sep 9: No appearance on Raw, standing next to the ring on SmackDown the next night

Sep 16: Alexa & Nikki working babyface against Sasha & Bayley


If you want to compare her to the horsewomen get her out of the tag division, give her a CONSISTENT singles babyface run including real title feuds (not losing 2-on-1 handicap matches with Nikki) and then we can talk about this again. The fact that she's not getting 1998 Austin pops after a couple of weeks in a babyface tag team does not mean we need to roll her out on stage in a wheelchair to get her sympathy.

Re: Alexa Bliss Fan Thread

I don`t wanna bother the (no) face pain, but the last few weeks, especially since Nikki is around, I heard something more and more on the WWE shows, which maybe has to do with it. Maybe it is just random.

Nikki and other wrestlers call Alexa Bliss more and more Lexi, which is her pet name (I found no better translation) I think. I remember years ago, when someone called her by that name in the ring, which didn`t happen a lot, she corrected him or her and said something like "the name is Alexa". She stopped doing that, it seems. The only other woman wrestler I know this pet name thing happens a lot is Natalya. Except the ring announcer, all wrestlers and commentators call her inring Nattie and the crowd even chants that name, when she got chants. The ironic thing: before SummerSlam Natalya said inring after the match to the interviewer: "so first of all, Lexi sucks".

On the other hand: I never heard Charlotte Flair being called "Ashley" or Bayley being called "Pam", while the regular TV shows are running.

What do you guys think about that pet name thing? Maybe in the USA it is different, but if people, which are not close to you, call you by your pet name, it is meant disrespectfully.

Ronda broke her hand punching the face that she said broke too easy. [8. April 2019, Becky Lynch]

English was my fourth language at school, so please be gentle. Feel free to send me corrections via PM.

Actually yes...Becky had not one (nose) but 2 (knee) injury storylines to help build her as a face after being stagnant for year on Smackdown.

I think it's because "Lexi" is really close sounding to her ring name Alexa so it fits even in kayfabe.

While Ashley and Pamela are not AT ALL similar to Charlotte and Bayley so it would be weird if they said it.

Those injuries were the worst part of the story. That is a really bad example

People need to remember storylines arent directed towards the every day adults. Its pushing the kids and casuals to start cheering for someone they've booed for 4 years.

It really didn't. What got becky over was being a fucling badass and calling out ronda etc. The injuries did nothing to help her at all. Now can an injury angle work for bliss as a face? Sure as long as it is done well. Works better as bliss being an underdog face suits her better. However keep her smarts as a face please and let her use her nxt moves

Re: Alexa Bliss Fan Thread

The worked knee injury might not have helped Becky, but the broken face most definitely did (it got her the Mania Main event)

Re: Alexa Bliss Fan Thread

1-2 syllable names are much easier to chant. Alexa is 3. The issue with Alexa's booking is that it's so flippy-floppy with little consistency.
