Good to see Paige appear to be reinstated as the GM again on SD.

She did mention that she thinks she should be reinstated when she was on the pre show for Wrestlemania and it looks as though its happened.

I don't think she's GM again. I think she's going to be the Sky Pirate's Manager.

Tell me about it. I mean, it's not like they'll make a bad tag team or anything, but come on, Io Shirai & Kairi Sane with Asuka in solo competition is a way better move.

On the bright side, with Paige being ringside as their manager, it looks pretty clear that they'll be tag team champions pretty quickly if for no other reason than to be a feather in the cap of Paige. I'm OK with that, but I'd still rather it be Kairi & Io... and have Asuka kick Becky's head in AGAIN, and take the title from her AGAIN, and this time turn heel. But whatever, WWE wants to book themselves into WCW 2001 territory, so have at it. It'll be interesting to see how the entire industry responds when USA & FOX drop WWE because they're not bringing in ratings anymore.

Only thing I can think of is they want Io Shirai to feud with Bayzler in NXT before she hits the main roster and they need something for Asuka to do for a while to keep her relevant. 

Does seem strange though, even when Paige said a brand new team and then announces Asuka you kind of thought hang on Asuka isn't new, plus the Sky Pirates would have made perfect sense as a established well oiled team from NXT who definitely would benefit from having Paige to do the promo work. 

Hopefully the  longterm plan sees Shirai become the second half of the team with Sane with Asuka moving back to the singles ranks.

I actually think its because they have no idea what to do with Asuka and Sane is probably ready for a call up - given how good she has been in the ring in NXT.

Well a ray of hope would be to have Asuka start teaming with Sane, and then turn on her, with Shirai coming down to do a save. This puts the Sky Pirates back together, and turns Asuka heel. That would be fun.

That's a good thought, only thing I would do slightly different is have Paige turn on Sane as well so she can continue to be Asuka's mouth-piece, Asuka's promos are pretty bad due to her broken English but I think she could be a very effective heel if they use the Yokozuna booking method of having someone else do the bulk of the promo work and just have Asuka chime in with a few short straight to the point lines at the end.

Thing is, Kairi Sane & Io Shirai have the same problem. With Asuka as a heel, if she were to just cut all her promos in Japanese, and just saying something in English to the effect of "Do you understand me? No? I speak English better than you speak Japanese".

Her charisma is such that she doesn't really need to speak. People can understand her just by watching her. Very few people have had that ability. And as a heel, it's an easy way to seek heat.

I just think to get decent heat a talent needs someone capable of delivering some strong verbal work which Paige can do, Sane and Shirai as a team I think can get over strong just with their natural charisma and ring skill. Asuka as a solo act I think has always had a bit of a hole in her game in her promos, she needs to come across as a terrifying bad ass but I feel like when she opens her mouth she comes across as more comical than anything.
