Maybe it's just cause Raw was in Brooklyn; but with the edgier product the crowd is getting more attitude era like (which I love.) Some were actually cheering Randy for the RKO. It reminds me of the crowd going crazy after Stone Cold Steve Austin's first ever Stunner on Vince at Madison Square Garden in 1997. 

100% agree with this

Love this angle at the minute

I mean, honestly, i'd rather if Ronda was going to have a programme between Rumble and Mania, it had been with Beth, and Nattie being the bridge in the story to bring that together.

Nattie could have gotten beaten down by Ronda after already reintroducing Beth as part of her pre-show work, and it would work better since Nattie is still full time, didn't all that long ago take a title shot, and Beth is, hopefully, not looking to return inring full time, as I think she'd have an even tougher time now getting a top spot on the card.

two matches at EC and Fast Lane, and then transition into a tag title match with Nattie at Mania would have been good enough, and wouldn't have felt as thrown away as Riott's attempts, but would still have been as obvious in their outcomes.

oooo burn

Lita was pretty talented in the ring

Trish relied on her looks but i was OK with that because at the time they were relevant, pretty much everyone in that division relied on their looks
 

It's fair comment really, Trish was all about her looks and got over thanks to her sex appeal and charisma, Lita was just a spot monkey. But then both were part of a era where ring work just wasn't that important if you were female in WWE. They will always be remembered as the two Women that made the Women's Title relevant. Beth Phoenix is a far better choice in terms of ring work and I would really like to see her mix it up with many of the current roster.

I agree Beth was better in the ring but honestly for me, WWE need to concentrate on building more stars in the Womens division if they really want to cement this revolution.

Sure they can claim they have been involved in the first female HIAC match, theres the tag titles etc etc but in years to come i cant see anything other than people looking back and going yeah they had some decent workers like Lynch and Flair - which is how we currently look back on the previous womens division - we basically remember 1 or 2 names and nothing else spectacular.

The mens division has got a lot of stick over the years for relying on stars of the past instead of building stars for the future and i really think the womens division should be building their stars for the future.

so, it would appear that Mrs Copeland is to have a small return, I would guess ending with her and Nattie facing off against Nia and Tamina and Bailey and Banks with potentially a SDL team at Mania.

it certainly felt weird for Nattie to come out and cut a promo referencing Ronda, but not having anything to do with her at all. I mean, not even a backstage skit where she tries to talk to her.

will be interesting to see what the actual plan is going forward, since thus far, I don't really feel there's any real plans for what to do with the female Tag titles.
 

I actually like that idea. Maybe a four way tag title match of Beth/Nattie vs Banks/Bayley vs Jax/Tamina vs Peyton/Kay, I did hear that WWE were lining up Trish/Lita to work with Banks/Bayley at Wrestlemania but maybe that's now off the table.
