    Is there any way Asuka doesn't win the women's RR?

    They've been hyping her for months.

    I'm just saying, it seems like they've been setting up Reigns/Brock and Asuka v. Hottest Woman in Wrestling for months.

    Not disputing that but WWE's follow thru is almost nonexistent at times. They drop and start/stop storylines/pushes all the time with little to no explanation. I'm not saying WWE shouldn't pull the trigger on these storylines just that their track record is very poor as of late!

    So, I'm not holding my breath until they actual go down these paths. Until then, things change all the time with no explanation or acknowlegement.

    Yeah, Reigns would have to drop the IC title first (in all likelihood), right?

    You'd think so. Unless they do Cham vs. Cham at Mania which would have less impact after they just did that at Survivor Series.

    I had to laugh when I watched the replay of Smackdown and they were making it seem they gave Ziggler so much success. For most of his career, they teased him with a push only to have a guy like Cena and Orton to go over.

    I think with all these rookies over the last few months, they can find a way to get Asuka over without her winning. It would have to be she loses by those rookies "cheating". I also see Paige getting a massive push now since she is back.

    I was a little disappointed in the Universal Title match. I wanted Strowman vs Lesnar in a singles match. I like Kane, but he is that guy I thought to be a stepping stone for Strowman to go to Lesnar. Now they got Strowman to Lesnar (which I thought the build up was alright outside the no contest with Kane), so I don't think they need Kane in the picture right now. Strowman is holding his own.

    I thought this was gonna be the WM match months ago.

    But they've already just done that 1 on 1. So they needed something fresh.

    You'd think they'd want to have an Asuka/Blaze match at some point.

    Kane is there to take the loss since Braun getting pinned clean twice by Brock would really damage him.

    Strong rumor has it that WM will be Asuka vs Rousey(given that's practically signed and even said on Jimmy Kimmel I believe that she's headed to WWE).

    Yes, there's a way she doesn't win. Her name is Ronda Rousey

    Man you guys are way more plugged in than I am.

    Here's hoping it's that blonde hottie Mandy Rose.

    Blonde Hottie v. Blonde Hottie at WM....totally worth it.

    We all know Kane was added to take the pin/loss. As soon as they made it a three way dance, I wondered if they were setting up Braun to pin Kane and win the title. I believe Lesnar's contract runs out right after WM, so they could be leaving their options open in case a new deal can't be reached by the Rumble. It would avoid having Lesnar in a WM match where WWE is forced to get the title off him somehow before he walks away from the company. .

    It's just speculation though, not confirmed. She's reportedly signed already (though not announced as official) and has already been doing some training. You know the Rumble will have some surprise entrants so it just makes sense. Regardless of if she actually shows up in the RR, its the safest bet possible that she will be at Wrestlemania.

    Rose is still too green imo.Not a fan of absolution. I did like Asuka interrupting Bliss then laying her out.That kick was quick.Reminded me of Holms upset of Rousey.Rousey speculation is everything from Asuka Rousey.To doing a 4 horse woman of the WWE vs the 4 horse woman of UFC. I'm hoping Asuka takes the rumble and title from bliss.And they let her streak and a title reign build.To a massive main event calibre matches another legend

    That website oversold it. I wouldn't really call that a "big" title change. I was expecting the top titles or even Roman actually losing the IC title. Damn you, clickbait headlines!!!
