Before getting hopes up, there has not been an influx of new superstars, just instead some things different… and some the same happening on Raw tonight for the women.
Coming off the heels of the only pay per view EVER (excluding Evolution) to have more women’s matches than men’s matches, TV time for the women of RAW is up a lot tonight, and it is at least worth raising an eye.
Firstly, what stays the same. I believe one problem is that Rhea Ripley has no challengers worthy, so it’ll just be her and Charlotte again. The new ripple to this being that it’s more of a double heel feud right now after the DQ last night.
We’ve also ended up with some pretty cool money in the bank qualifying tag matches. Now say what you want about the matches, but at least they’re new. This season always brings around new matchups, and we’ve gotten to see storylines move forward in the process.
In the case of the now officially named Doudrop, it is obvious that Piper isn’t a very willing participant. After a single match, her and Eva Marie’s relationship may be going south, allowing Naomi and Asuka to qualify.
As for the reunited Bliss/Cross, there’s a lot new. They each have new music that fits some updated gimmicks. But Alexa isn’t the only evolved character, as we met a Mighty Molly esque version of Nikki Cross. Being on a hot streak as of late is what sparked this. They also won thanks to the continued tormenting from Bliss on their opponents, Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax.
So nothing game changing to report, but pleasantly surprised with stories good or bad moving, and matches good or bad happening.
