1. Naomi eliminated Alexa Bliss

    Shocked as hell. I thought for sure Nikki would be handed the title. WTG Becky, you deserve it!

      Yes she did indeed. Nikki is a part timer, so it wouldn’t have been right to give her the belt. I honestly like the divas division on smackdown instead of the one on Raw. Simply because it focuses on all divas, and not just the 3 on raw. Sasha and charlotte and bayley. Raw women’s championship will always be about those 3. I’ve watched them fight in nxt, and now?? It gets old. Raw should focus on all divas, not just 3

        Agreed they need to get nia Jax, Alicia, Lana if she can wrestle in to the mix.

          Agreed. Dont forget about dana brooke. She looks good and i can actually see her being champ. I think she deserves more than someone to be fed to sasha and Bayley, just to continue putting them over. She might be new, but shes pretty good. That bodybuilder gimmick she had. She needs to go back to it, and slim down in weight. That gimmick was championship material
