He's basically a backyard wrestler.

I know he's gone on and got the proper training but to me, I've always seen him as a guy do moves like he watched a tape and just doing the moves he liked minutes afterwards. The evidence kinda there as last year he's was ripping off some of Ricochet's stuff at Summerslam after he saw a PWG show live.

He's athletic as hell and very talented to pull off the stuff he does but he looks like he just does stuff cause he saw it on tape and wanted to do it without rhyme or reason. I'm not calling a spot monkey cause he can put together a good match but there's a backyarder vibe I get from him.
Whether it's teaching a guy how to work with a multi-camera setup or stressing the importance of slowing down, the Performance Center is a great finishing school. Rollins is an excellent example of that.

Ideally, yes, this most recent interaction will lead to a feud but I tend to think it's example 15204 of Stephanie talking down a heel or babyface without them ever having a chance for retribution. Or maybe it'll be like the Brie Bella feud, I honestly don't know.

I can't wait for the match when a 40-year-old executive and mother of three is able to dominate a champion professional athlete at their own game.

Went back and forth on posting this. I foreshadowed all by WWE talent issues a couple of weeks before the Ryback, Cody etc issues came to ahead. But the issues with the Diva division is way more acute as there's way less spots and time on TV. WWE in how they are treating Charlotte is creating a lot of resentment towards Charlotte. Charlotte does get critique and even yelled at more than most but the perception is that Charlotte can make mistakes while others if they make even one they get yanked off TV.

I don't think they are doing Stephanie vs Charlotte but if they do it will come at a major cost morale wise and may have unintentional consequences like talent quitting.

Can't wait to see Sasha and Paige in STARDOM.

If I was one of the women who got over Charlotte, established the division, was on the road full-time, and had to stand by while the bosses adult, non-wrestler daughter get handed the big blowoff match, I'd be beyond upset too.

The big one is Paige obviously. Personally not impressed with her in ring or the attitude she conveys in the ring but she's really over that can't denied. But someone like Naomi has been periodically pushed and dropped in short order numerous times. At times it was because she wasn't gaining traction admittedly. Then there's Summer Rae who has gotten over but was taken off screen due to reasons to do with other people.

Usually when Stephanie emasculates someone it's usually one-off. This is the 2nd time that there has been interaction between Charlotte and Stephanie within 2-3 weeks which leads me to think they are feuding down the line and possibly having a match. I don't think it would be wise to though.

It's odd how leading up to WrestleMania they would have at least 2 women's matches/segments, then post-WrestleMania it's back to one person show (unless I've missed them when they do more...).

Screen time now being used for the male mid-card scene.

Summer was a good hand in NXT, I always found it odd why they never did something with her on the main roster. Personal issue with someone higher in the pecking order makes sense.

The subculture of wrestling lawsuit junkies is both amusing and perplexing to me. As a professional in one arena and a fan in the other, this is like the opposite of the Reese's peanut butter cup merger analogy.
