Most of us where scratching our heads when Natalya tapped Alexa Bliss on last weeks Raw to become number one contender for Becky Lynch's Raw Womens Championship at arguably the second biggest night in wrestling, Summerslam.

When the fatal fourway elimination match was announced on last weeks Raw, I was fully anticipating another Alexa Bliss title challenge. The Goddess has been heavily featured on TV this year with her moments of bliss segments and 'freindship' with Nikki Cross. Alexa bliss vs Becky Lynch felt destined for Summerslam. Unexpectedly Natalya won the match despite rarely appearing on TV in recent months.

What can I say about Natalya that has already been said? A highly skilled womens wrestler who is undoubtedly a Locker room leader that deserves all the respect that she gets. But when it comes to character, promos and storytelling...she sucks. We've all seen the cringeworthy acting and stupid gimmicks. Sure Natalya has had her moments but for every good moment I can think of a bagillion fart jokes. Just like Dolph Ziggler, she does not benefit from longevity.

So, Why Natalya?

Well Natalya vs Becky has the potential to be a very well crafted technical masterclass. Natalya could assure a high quality matchup for Becky, who desperately needs one after her mediocre fued with Lacey Evans. Undoubtedly Natalya vs Becky is a better quality matchup then Becky vs Bliss...am I right, The Sheik The Sheik ?

Summerslam is also in Toronto this year. It's no secret that Natalya is apart of the Hart Family Dynasty. So in theory she should have the home advantage and crowd support. Good storyline element to the match. However I dont know. I'm not an expert on US and Canadian Crowds. Would the Toronto fans cheer for Natalya over Becky? Also why would you want to have Becky get booed? I know both competitors are babyface so there are lot of questions in how the crowd are going to react. That's if they react at all.

Then we have the story of the match. We know Natalya and Becky have history. Natalya was somewhat of a mentor to Becky that eventually betrayed her. Years later Becky is the alpha champion. There is a very interesting contrast between the character of Becky in 2016 to now. So this fued does highlight the character proggression quite well.

And then we have Natalyas allegiances with Ronda Rousey. Maybe this will play a part in the promos building up to that match. Natalya blarting out how Ronda is better then her. Maybe this fued has been set up to bring back Ronda. Maybe?

Whatever the thinking behind wwe booking this lackluster match for one of the biggest shows of the year, we know that the booking of The Man has been poor. This match and fued may deliver the goods but it would be nice for Becky to beat someone with actual credibility.

I just think they have no real interesting opponent for Becky and that's a shame. They obviously don't want to make a rematch from the past PPVs so they are going with Natalya because of her legacy and reputation, and yes also because she is Canadian and SummerSlam is in Toronto, but I don't know why that matters. I don't think it's that bad tho could have been worst, both have good chemistry and should have a good match but nothing really worthy of a big show.

It could of been Bliss. But I guess it's a creative direction they didn't want to go down. Becky vs Bliss sounds awful especially with the Nikki Cross bullshit.

I think this match will be a very sound match that could be fucked depending on the crowd and position on the card. We know Natalya ain't winning so the drama for the submissions and close falls will not be heightened. Its basically going to be Kofi vs Owen's, Dolph and Joe.

The build to the match will hopefully have some good story to it. But then again Paul Heyman writing women has been proven to be off the ball many times in the past. That guy cannot write women.

Didn't Natalya saying something stupid to Becky on Raw? Like how shes bad at sex. So it looks like they are going down that road instead of exploring the history between the two and connections to Ronda. Could be bollocks

Alexa bliss vs Becky Lynch felt destined for Summerslam.
Only for Alexa Bliss fanboys...

And why would Alexa move straight from a program with Bayley
into a feud with Becky? There are other women on the roster...
women can can actually wrestle & aren't afraid to take a hit or two.

Where the fuck is Ruby Riott?!

So, Why Natalya?
1). Because Canada!
2). Because Nattie is one of the few women on the RAW brand who can actually wrestle...& after
Lacey Evans...that would actually be a refreshing change...
3). Because Vince might have Becky win in like 30 seconds or less because he likes fucking with Canada...
&
4). An extra reason for a POSSIBLE Ronda Rousey "run in" that costs Becky the title & begins a build to a
Becky vs. Ronda 1 ON 1 match for the Wrestlemania 36.

I honestly havent been impressed with Natalya in the ring either.
She has had some very good matches over the years. She mostly wrestles shit like Alexa and so on.


This Raw added alot to the story. They talked about there history and how much Becky has risen above Natalya. They also address Natalyas ties with Ronda Rousey.

I like this fued because it has a good story. Most people are too short sighted to see.
 
It should damn well be Alexa I mean what the hell were they thinking going with Natayla over her, You have a well established Heel for Becky at a Big 4 ppv but you choose someone who no one cares about instead it's baffling.

Bliss cant wrestle for shit. So they probably wanted a safe pair hands cuz Becky has not had a good singles match in a long time

Because they wanted Becky to work with a woman who can actually wrestle...
especially considering she just feuded with Lacey Evans...also Canada!...also
Ruby Riott is injured & Sasha is sitting at home diddling herself.

Bliss cant wrestle for shit. So they probably wanted a safe pair hands cuz Becky has not had a good singles match in a long time
Bingo!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Wait...hang on a second...

July 23rd...
When the fatal fourway elimination match was announced on last weeks Raw, I was fully anticipating another Alexa Bliss title challenge. The Goddess has been
heavily featured on TV this year with her moments of bliss segments and friendship with Nikki Cross. Alexa bliss vs Becky Lynch felt destined for Summerslam.
July 28th...
Bliss cant wrestle for shit.
I...wait...what?

I think they don't want to have Alexa jobbing again and want to keep Becky champion so they went with Natalya.
Alexa should be jobbing out for the entire division considering
how the WWE basically used nearly every woman she faced to
put her over & make her look WAY better than she truly is.

Don't get me wrong...Alexa can remember her lines & act...but
she is an AWFUL wrestler who brings the entire division down
when she has a title.

Well I'm just saying it's probably their reasoning behind it, they want to protect Alexa because she just lost to Bayley.

Yeah...you're probably right.

Look I'm not trying to start a fight...and I know you aren't a homophobe by
the way but you first say Becky vs. Alexa felt destined for SummerSlam...
but then you say Alexa is shit.

I just don't understand the logic...

Did you want Becky vs. Alexa or not? And if you didn't then why start the
thread to begin with complaining about Nattie getting the match?

And I mean its not hard to guess why Nattie did get the match...its because
CANADA! & the RAW women's roster is thinner than a stick figure at the moment.

I thought Alexa was going to face Becky. I can still think shes shit at wrestling. There is no contradiction....

I thought Alexa vs Becky as going to be booked. Unexpectedly it was Natalya who got booked.

I don't where I have ever expressed that I wanted to see Alexa vs Becky.

This thread is not about complaining. I haven't complained once in this thread. Apart from say Alexa is shit at wrestling.

You've clearly not read the thread properly
