The Empress Is No Pushover

As expected, the show opened with the three women fighting for the title at TLC appearing together to sign the contract.

An interesting fact was put up about how the women have all defeated each other except for Lynch having never beaten Asuka. This led to an argument from which Lynch walked out which seemed a bit weird but we get that WWE is protecting her.

Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose hit the ring for whatever reason. That setup a tag match with Asuka and Charlotte on one side and Deville and Rose on the other.

The match was a decent one with the title challengers dominating most of it until they had a spat among themselves. This left Charlotte down and Deville took advantage to pick up the win.

Here is the thing. All this felt okay but not good enough. Somehow we expected more excitement, more build-up for the women’s title match. It will be really pathetic if this match does not headline TLC and looking at the way this match is being built-up, it appears that the chances of that happening are slim.

On a side note, is the tension between Deville and Rose resolved now? When did that happen?

Winners: Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose.

Rating: Thumbs Down

A New Spin On The Tag Division?

We would love to imagine how WWE came up with this match. Someone thought “How to bring the tag division some relevance? Oh yeah, let’s put them in singles matches!”

Don’t get us wrong. There is a time and place for singles matches in the tag division. It is when you have established feuds and strong teams.

The tag division has become a joke on SmackDown. Cesaro and Sheamus barely feel like a dominating force. The Usos feel like their wings have been clipped and the New Day is just a group that performs comedy bits.

Also, where the heck is Big Show? Are we to forget that he played a big role in the tag championship and now we should be okay with him disappearing after an ambiguous backstage segment?

This is frustrating and sad to watch especially since the tag division on RAW isn’t faring any better. The match was pretty good though and Jey Uso won but in the grand scheme of things, it was pointless.

Winner: Jey Uso
