Speculation on Raw title changing hands before Royal Rumble

Alexa Bliss vs Asuka

One of the most surprising things coming out of this week’s episode of Raw was Alexa Bliss losing to Asuka in a one on one match fair and square without any prior buildup.

The whole thing became more interesting as it was stretched through three different segments during the show and it felt like this is the start of a new storyline.

During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed this match and speculated that WWE could be planning to put the title on Asuka.

Meltzer further speculated that this title change can take place before the upcoming Royal Rumble PPV. Then it would make sense for Bliss to invoke her rematch clause at the event itself.

Though Dave didn’t clearly state that the championship change will indeed take place and it should become clearer whether or not the company is planning a title change in upcoming weeks.

    Asuka can cut a more cohesive promo than half the girls in the company and she can barely speak English!!!! Plus, she’s about a notch above most in the ring. While I agree that she is VASTLY overrated, she is still pretty d*mn good. Her in-ring skills are limited, but what she can do, is impressive. Better than most I’d say, which isn’t really saying that much. She’s “okay” in my book, which is good enough to get you a title run in WWE these days.

    I don’t know, I don’t think any women’s titles should be defended at the Rumble. I think both current champions (whoever that is) should sit ringside and watch the rumble match. I think they’re already going to struggle to fill 30 slots anyway, if you consider there are only about 20 active women between the two shows.

    I think it could be ‘slightly’ more interesting if, the title changed hands before the Rumble, Bliss could still get her rematch after the Rumble, while the winner of the rumble doesn’t know who they will face until then.

    You are trolling us right?

    I really hope they are not doing this to set up her vs Ronda Rousey in N.O. for the title. The only other way this makes any sense is if she’s going to face Alexa or Sasha at Mania.

    Some Millennials have no experience nor opinions on the matter. ASUKE FOR CHAMP!!!

    Actually I know tons of people that disagree. Nia Jax and Mickie James deserve a chance before Asuka who like just debut.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    You’re by yourself on that one lol. She’s one of the best things in the Women’s division, by far.

  • RKO
