The Official UKFF RAW Thread...

Recommended Posts

Fit Finlay gesturing Becky to enter The Rumble to a humongous pop, Becky winning The Rumble and that Becky/Ronda promo from Raw. I've watched all three so many times in the last day or two that it's borderline embarrassing. It felt like Becky had really cooled off in the last month or so. I was worried they'd never be able to recapture the magic they had the night her face exploded on Raw. I couldn't be more wrong. She feels even hotter now than she did when she invaded. This is the best. The type of thing that makes me love pro wrestling so much.

When it's good it's FUCKING GREAT.

Let's say we're getting Becky VS Rousey (sans Charlotte) at WrestleMania. That's the main event, right? Becky is the most over superstar, Rousey the biggest crossover name. Brock VS Rollins is not a bigger match in my view. This is the chance to have a women's WrestleMania main event.

Agreed, one on one it's the biggest match they have by far at the moment, but when Charlotte gets inserted will anyone care? Might aswell put it in the middle of the card then.

I would say, but Lesnar doing the big job on the grandest stage will be to them.

I think anyone with any instincts for this business realises that the money match is Becky vs. Ronda in a singles match, closing out the show, with Becky winning clean.

I fully expect Vince to not only shoehorn Charlotte in, making it a Triple Threat, but to decide on the day to have Charlotte win. Probably pinning Becky.

I'm convinced Becky/Ronda is headlining, with or without Charlotte. Lesnar/Rollins isn't headlining over that, it's got the most crossover appeal, and they love a "first time ever".

The only reason I can think that they might consider adding Charlotte is to draw boos away from Ronda.  Have Charlotte force her way into the match, the crowd will shit on her and also potentially she could take the pin.

But like the rest of you, if they don't follow that sensational segment up with a 1v1 match to finish up WM it will be the worst missed opportunity I can remember.  Ronda powering her way through the boos to deliver that comeback was genuinely impressive, she got the crowd's respect for that.

It will be a great match, and I can't think of a better WM moment ending than the hottest act they've had in years beating the biggest crossover star they've had in years.  It will be up there with Eddie Guerrero hugging himself as the ticker tape falls.

Whilst Becky/Ronda in a 1v1 match SHOULD absolutely main event, by the time we get 6+ hours into the show, the crowd will be totally burnt out and the match will suffer so much for it. Perhaps the better idea is to have it in the middle of the show, to maximum heat and fanfare?

It would make it better to watch but WWE are clearly invested in firsts for the women's division. This seems like the first logical opportunity for women to headline WM and I am not sure that a natural opportunity will come around again any time soon. This feels like lightening in a bottle and Rollins would have to heat up considerably to convince me otherwise.

Also, Ronda main event means she'll be on all the mainstream talk shows etc. as she's a huge crossover star. With that you can have Becky front and centre, and get more eyes on 'Mania. It has to be the Main Event. Everything about this is huge.

I only noticed it when he did that ridiculous bump for the Curb Stomp on Monday. I hadn't realised that Dean was already channelling Summerslam 2005 HBK the night before!

The lad has stopped caring like no-one's business.

One of the weirdest things I've noticed on twitter is folk posting her promo before her match and tweeting "worst promo ever" and completely ignoring the money that was screamed out of her mouth a few minutes later. Planned or not, the fact she went from bumbling stumbling nice Ronda getting shat on, to intense nutter not giving a fook was an element that made her closing comments so venomous and captivating; you sensed she was genuinely unhinged.

I think they should just embrace the boos and have Ronda shit on the fans for sabotaging another perfectly good babyface. They deserve a bit of push back from WWE and, going by how fired up she was, Ronda would kill it. It's a far better idea than having Charlotte turn up and dilute the undeniable dynamic of Becky and Ronda.

I'm wondering with the 4 horsewomen gesture if they will have Charlotte take on askua to win the smack down women's title then have Bayley and Sasha win the tag belts and finish with Becky defeating Rousey with both sets of horsewoman being involved. Either way I reckon it's a strong possibility wm closes with the 4 of them on the stage holding belts. The end of takeover has me convinced as we've seen ideas from.nxt shortly transition to the main roster

Just had a thought - any possibility they could do a Daniel Bryan/Bret Hart with Becky Lynch and have her work double duty at Wrestlemania? Open the show against Charlotte, with her title shot on the line, main event against Ronda?

Charlotte could rough her up after the match, targeting her arm, then you get the added dilemma of her arm being injured going in against someone who specialises in Armbars.
