The biggest winners and losers of last night's Raw (April 1)
- An important, but filler Raw
Winners: Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair
As usual, Stephanie McMahon needed to get her way into their feud last night to announce that the match would be winner take all. That's good news for them since it makes their match bigger, but it's bad news for the rest of their division. With many women on the roster and with more to come from NXT this year (Shayna Baszler imminently, likely the other two UFC horsewomen with her, and probably Kairi Sane before the year is out), a title unification only shrinks their opportunities.
This also simply reeks of a last minute change. If this was going to be the stipulation, it should have been so all along. It would have made the build far less of the colossal mess it's become, and wouldn't have shafted Asuka and the other SmackDown women in the process.
If they do a title unification on a permanent basis, the division needs its own Intercontinental title. A rumored Queen of the Ring tournament would be the perfect place to unveil it.Published 02 Apr 2019, 18:04 IST
