Mick Foley posted a new blog on Facebook talking about Raw, but singling out the Divas as bad booking and being set up to fail.
EPIC RAW, POTENTIAL PROBLEM
I loved WWE Raw – I really did, Loved all of it….almost. The Heyman promo, the Inspirational Bo Dallas promo, that Brock didn’t quite buy into, The Dudleyz, The Sting thing. All of it was great, Except for the Divas match. For the 2nd time in two weeks, #RAW turned a little nasty for the ladies
A friend sent me a message about the Divas, The guy is not an official wrestling writer; he’s a guy I met through our mutual enthusiasm fro Grace Potter. But he’s also the guy who told me I NEEDED to see the Charlotte/Natalya – WWE Universe match on #NXT in May 2014 – the match that was a game-changer for me as far as what #WomensWrestling could be. He’s got concerns. I think they’re valid, Here they are, Take a look. I think many of you will agree.
“The Divas division now has to consist of independent concurrent story lines. The WWE Universe wants to see a fight. Grudge matches. One versus one. Leave your entourage in the back. That is a big match feel. Not contrived weekly variations of all the Divas put together for a couple of segments. They need a WORLD Championship. And, a WORLD Tag Team Championship. This is why the Barclays trolled their Raw match. Their Summerslam Elimination match didn’t allow for the opportunity for the final-two-competitors pop. Big difference between those two examples and Saturday night. Frankly, The Sasha/Bayley pre-match video package gave me more chills. I don’t know if Sara del Rey works with the main roster Divas, but she should.”
The man knows. He knows! Tell me what you know!
