There is no denying that the Divas Revolution caused an initial spike of interest to the division, but the renewed excitement was short-lived after it became apparent that WWE did not have a long term master plan for it after all.
A further cause of my own waning interest was the decision to build everything around Charlotte. As previously stated, I found her wrestling skills to be top-notch, but always thought her personality boring.
However, since adopting her Hall of Fame father's cheating ways, my interest in her story with Becky Lynch has increased. For instance, last week's SmackDown saw Charlotte give her friend a hand in her match (quite literally), allowing Becky to reluctantly pick up a win.
The disparity between the pair's integrity makes for a far more interesting dynamic than their being "bezzies", and I am hoping to seeing it accumulate into a title match for Becky Lynch.
Forging a character based on family heritage does not guarantee success. The likes of Curtis Axel and Ted DiBiase are testaments to this, but I do feel a female Flair is no bad thing for her to aspire to.
Besides, she does not have to remain this way her entire career. She could always later see the error of her ways and return to her former saintly self, but with the added experience of knowing how to express personality in a far more interesting way.
The WWE Slammy Awards have come and gone, and the question on the WWE Universe's lips is "are they actually fixed after all." Unless there is some political picking going on backstage, how on earth did The Usos get Tag Team of The Year instead of The New Day?
First off, The Usos were missing as a tag team for a large part of the year, whereas The New Day have been active since early 2015.
Secondly, the popularity of The New Day is unprecedented. They are heels by definition of character only, and WWE knows this. How many Monday nights have gone by without a New Day section or two (or three or four)? The New Day often open shows, work a midcard match, and then appear in the main event too.
Lastly, let us look at the gold. Those belts have been around the waists of Xavier Woods, Big E, and Kofi Kingston for the majority of the year. They lost them briefly to The Prime Time Players, but were quick to regain them and keep hold of ever since.
How does being a main event player, titleholder, and one of the funniest acts around NOT equate to Tag Team of The Year?
The ONLY legitimate reason one can disqualify them is that they are a "freebird rules" tag team, not a traditional two-man team. Even then, I would have picked The Lucha Dragons.
The Usos may have ended up with the trophies, but at the end of the day, we all know who the real winners are.
So there you have it, my two choices for the week. What do YOU think are the Cheap Pop and Cheap Heat this week in professional wrestling? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
