This besides, just because they might have been the ones who came up with the name, it still doesn't make it a good name choice.

I think their last actual match was slightly under a month ago?
Asuka didn't defend the title at EC. Yeah, she defended it against Naomi on SDL, but that happened two months prior to that. And while I was checking old videos I noticed Charlotte (aka the golden girl they want to paint as an in ring god to the audiences) didn't defend her title on every single PPV either. Thing is, a champion not defending a title on a steady basis isn't an accurate indication of how much trust they have in them.

And, iirc, there was a Japan tour last year during the Carmella-Asuka feud and the title didn't change hands.

Re: Tomorrow Brings Danger: An Asuka Fan Thread

No tag title match at MITB is indicative of WWE not giving a shit about the ''division''. It has nothing to do with the IIconics specifically. The company has simply checked out and given up on the concept. I'll be surprised if the titles still exist in a year.

No tag title match at MITB should actually increase their chances. Not that it matters outside of NXT.

Re: Tomorrow Brings Danger: An Asuka Fan Thread

Well, the tag titles where nothing but shiny second rate scraps to appease Sasha, so I'm sure Vince associates them to her, and knowing how spiteful the man can be, won't be shocked if he first ruins the belts a bit more before finally doing away with them in humilliating fashion.

Re: Tomorrow Brings Danger: An Asuka Fan Thread

The fact that they don't have a tag title match booked for MITB shows how little they care about those titles.

The name is lame, but it could be worse. I still totally dislike the entrance music.

Meanwhile they even let Shane beat up Roman and pin him. So strange.
Anyway, take care.

Finn is with his title in MITB, which tells us again, that this title means nothing.

You are a bit over the top here, but this is correct. I would add, that these titles were also made to appease the complete division, while Ronda did her thing there. It was a new carrot for the women division. The moment WM started, Vince stopped it and put the titles on the IIconics, because Ronda was gone anyway.

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.

Wanna know what would suit her even more? A blue or red belt.

You know full well that's Vince style. Just look at what he did to the original Cruiserweight title.
Anyway, the Tag titles indeed suck and Kawaii sucks even more, so don't care about Asuka winning them, esp. since she never gets to pin their opponents anyway.
