#1 Flopped on WWE RAW: Lana
The opening match of WWE RAW this week saw a six-woman tag team match. Asuka teamed up with Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke to take on Zelina Vega, Natalya, and Lana. The match was alright, and Lana ended up looking the weakest inside the ring. While it is pretty clear that her in-ring prowess doesn't remotely match that of others who were competing in the match, it's the specific spots that made her look extremely out-of-place.
To make things worse, the torment didn't stop with the final bell for this match. After Asuka, Mandy Rose, and Dana Brooke picked a victory over their opponents; it was time for the Women's Tag Team Champions to make a statement. Both Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax announced their arrival on the Red brand and immediately went after Lana and Natalya. And once again, Jax put Lana through the announce desk.
This was the third time that Lana was put through the announcers table. It does little to nothing concerning Lana's progress on WWE RAW. She is anyway booked as someone more active as a social media influencer than she is inside the ring. It doesn't make much sense to book her as anyone other than a cowardly heel. Thus, it looks strange (and is almost impossible to ignore) when it comes to the intensity of punishment that Lana has been taking over the last few weeks on WWE RAW.Published 06 Oct 2020, 10:44 IST
