Asuka is great at everything she does. She is just as good at comedy jobber as she is evil heel, or heroic babyface. ATM it looks like they're going comedy jobber route with her, which kinda sucks, but if it leads to her turning heel and getting a renewed push up the card as opposed to just barely being on the card, then I guess that's better than nothing. 

Becky seems a bit to be turning face... I don't really buy into the 'tweaner' talk, as they haven't done that since the attitude era, nor before that either. But this might be an exception I suppose. Wish WWE would just pull their heads out of their asses, and give the fans what they want. They recently did that with the men, about a year ago or so, they started switching people around so that all the faces were people fans liked (except Reigns) and all the heels were people the fans either disliked, or preferred to boo... They need to do that with the women now.

Charlotte is great, but she's not a very likable character, everyone loves Becky, just put them in the role they should be in and the feud will get over all the more.

I'd say that Lynch quote is more open to interpretation and confirmation bias. Who is they? If you like Becky Lynch, she could be talking about WWE management. If you don't, she's talking about you.

Quote WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch comes down to the ring next. Becky gets on the mic and talks about "toppling the queen" and taking over the Women's division. She says she has made the SmackDown women's division the hottest thing in WWE. She says she's done being nice, and now she strikes fast and strikes often. She introduces a video package looking at her feud with Charlotte Flair. Back in the ring, Becky says time and time again she has proven that she owns Charlotte. Becky complains about not getting magazine covers or interviews like Charlotte does. Becky says since no one will give her those spots, she'll take those too, and then she unveils a new poster she designed for Super Show Down. The poster shows a cartoon of Becky standing above Charlotte who is laying on the ground. Charlotte's music hits, and Charlotte comes out to interrupt. Charlotte hits the ring and starts brawling with Becky. Charlotte hits a spear, and the crowd seems to be booing Charlotte. Charlotte suplexes Becky in to the poster, and then applies the Figure Four. Charlotte gets up and kicks Becky back down. Charlotte heads to the back as Becky recovers in the ring and the broadcast team promotes Super Show Down on Saturday.
 
Becky was superbly heelish with her arrogance, but is never going to get booed.
 
It's like the other week when management will have expected Becky to get booed for attacking Charlotte during her backstage photo shoot. But with Becky being the champion that shoot should have been hers and that's one of the many valid points she brings up weekly.
 
Charlotte isn't hated by fans, just against Becky. Put her in a fued with anyone else she would get good cheers. Charlotte isn't a female Reigns/Cena that will be booed regardless of opponent.

Mostly I agree, but it depends how long this feud goes on for. Crowds can and will get used to booing someone and then just boo them for the sake of it. 

Swap Charlotte into any other feud now (I'd be putting her against the Iiconics for a bit, personally) and she'll be as popular as ever. Stay too long and they might do some damage.

They've been trying everything to get Becky hated but it's not working she's too likeable and on top of that this new aggressive side makes the crowd love her even more.

It's time for a double turn or at least get Becky back to face there's plenty of talent to go heel or neutral for Becky to fight.

No, they actually haven't been trying everything. They've given up on the cheap tactics of insulting the crowd. Becky has said so herself, as has Charlotte. They are still going forward with Becky cheating, etc., but she just ignores the crowd now. Charlotte on the other hand is struggling to get over as a babyface (once again, she has said so herself as has Becky) and her antics in Mixed Match challenge with AJ Styles as her partner are an attempt to get her to loosen up and learn to have more fun and be less guarded.

I spent a lot of time yesterday listening to the Lilian Garcia Chasing Glory podcasts with Becky, Charlotte, and a few other women, and they've been talking about this feud out of character and it's been rather enlightening. Becky sees her character more as a "Stone Cold" tweener character despite the producers working their asses off to portray her as a heel, and she's loving it, meanwhile Charlotte, (who BTW has it in her to be an incredibly lovable babyface) is struggling to shed her supremely confident, ice queen of the ring persona, and have more fun and show off her more light-hearted and 'vulnerable' side so that she's more relatable.

For a smart mark like me, I enjoy feuds more when I know the real-life backstories to them, and the Chasing Glory interviews have gotten me far more invested in this feud than before.

I agree with everything you said there, Rico. WWE backed off the heel tendancies as soon as they saw it wasn't working but the overall feud was already mapped out so they're sticking to it knowing it will have little effect on her reception/popularity. If anything it's gotten people more behind Becky knowing that WWE are trying to make them stop. It's a powerful tool.
