When Becky Lynch left of WrestleMania 35 as the “& ldquo; Champ Champ, & rdquo; the owner of both the RAW and also Smackdown Female & rsquo; s Champions, numerous followers wondered that would be set up to test Lynch first.
Obviously Ronda was mosting likely to be out of the photo, as she is taking time away from the firm to try as well as have an additional kid. Numerous would’& rsquo; ve fixed Charlotte Panache as the first given that she lost her championship without being pinned, however we are in the age now of no automated champion rematches.
There’& rsquo; s likewise the fact that the Becky/Charlotte fight has been overdone, and also it’& rsquo; s possibly best to rest on that suit for a minimum of a bit.
The following obvious challenger for Becky would’& rsquo; ve apparently been Asuka, that beat Becky for the title at Royal Rumble as well as shed it to Charlotte a week before WrestleMania. This is yet one more majorly match, and once more something that didn’& rsquo; t requirement to be hurried to as well as won & rsquo; t now that Asuka has been put in a tag team with Kairi Sane.
If not Charlotte or Asuka, Alexa Bliss could’& rsquo; ve been seen as the initial to test & ldquo; The Guy. & rdquo; These 2 had a terrific rivalry a number of years earlier on Smackdown, and also it was that feud that aided place Alexa Happiness on the map in WWE.
WWE entered a different direction though, and customarily the Internet Fumbling Area has actually been split on it. Becky’& rsquo; s initial opposition, for the RAW Women & rsquo; s Champion, will certainly be novice Lacey Evans.
Lacey was naturally in NXT awhile, yet she’& rsquo; s been recognized to WWE audiences for the previous month or 2 for doing one thing & hellip; walking down the ramp swing at individuals as her music played. That is until the evening after WrestleMania, where she walked down the ramp and also punched Becky right in the mouth.
Last week on RAW, “& ldquo; The Girl & rdquo; wrestled her very first televised WWE suit, ripping off Natalya to make a chance at the RAW Women’& rsquo; s Champion.
& rdquo; It happens. I & rsquo; ve come to be a HUGE follower of Lacey & rsquo; s given that her WWE debut. And also’I put on & rsquo; t mean given that her match recently, I indicate since she first started disturbing people or matches to walk down the ramp to her music.
Lacey Evans has ended up being a breath of fresh air in a females’& rsquo; s division that has, to me, been over-hyped and over-pushed for social schedule factors only.
The women in WWE have actually absolutely done a wonderful task and worked extremely difficult to reach where they are at currently, as well as I’& rsquo; m grateful for them, however I simply wear’& rsquo; t care to see the women( be it Becky, Ronda, Charlotte, Nia, or anybody else) reach slap and consider a ring loaded with male guard.
Becky has actually ignited with “& ldquo; The Guy & rdquo; trick, but I liked her better when she was in NXT or feuding with Alexa on Smackdown in her “& ldquo; pre-Man & rdquo; days. I & rsquo; ve really started to do not like “& ldquo; The Guy & rdquo; trick, though still count Becky as one of my faves because she’& rsquo; s outstanding as a talent and also a person.
Maybe I just have a point for heels, however I love Lacey Evans and also the trick she has going. The Sassy Southern Belle. The Lady of WWE. So conventional. I also love the IIconics as well as Alexa Happiness.
Remarkable character apart, it’& rsquo; s hard not to such as Lacey as an individual. She’& rsquo; s a Southern woman, she offered her nation as a Marine, and she’& rsquo; s relatively an extremely committed and loving mother as well as better half as well as the personality just looks like her with the quantity transformed method up. Not always the high course, girl like element, however much more so the typical element.
On the looks front, I obtain that this isn’& rsquo; t the Perspective Age, and unlike say Mr. Tito from LOP I put on’& rsquo; t assume WWE is trying to make Lacey the next Sable, however there’& rsquo; s a reason individuals like Mandy Rose and also Lana in spite of being heels and also not always great wrestlers & hellip; they’& rsquo; re incredibly warm. Which does still matter also if the suits today are battling matches and not swimsuit contests.
I’& rsquo; m excited for it since Lacey is different, as well as we’& rsquo; ve seen the same point for as long that it’& rsquo; s hard not to be delighted by something different.
At the same time, I’& rsquo; m dissatisfied because this is Lacey’& rsquo; s initially fight on the main roster and also however it’& rsquo; s one she isn & rsquo; t likely to win. I wear & rsquo; t see Becky losing a title in the future; I assume they & rsquo; ll intend to try and profit from Becky’& rsquo; s current popularity by having her on both shows as high as possible.
So what occurs to Lacey when she loses to The Man? She’& rsquo; s most likely to go to pieces in a RAW division that is pretty uninspired while someone else moves into the opposition function.
I’& rsquo; m not a follower of hot-shotting a champion on to somebody, so that’& rsquo; s an additional reason I’& rsquo; m a little dissatisfied by this. Lacey Evans should have somewhat quietly ran through the RAW females’& rsquo; s department while subtly taking chance ats The Male and also playing up being a Girl.
On paper, Lacey is the excellent aluminum foil to Becky. She’& rsquo; s the conventional girl like it’& rsquo; s the 1950s, and also Becky has actually been placed as the 2010s personification of an empowered feminist woman that’& rsquo; s anti-authority. She & rsquo; s & ldquo; The Male & rdquo; in the duty individuals like to liken to a Stone Cold.
The Lady vs. The Male & hellip; it virtually composes itself. It’& rsquo; s simply a story that ought to & rsquo; ve been informed vi a slow-moving develop over months, culminating with a Lacey success, and also not one hurried to in weeks that will inevitably result in a Becky victory and the status quo not transforming.
