So after a wonderful wrestling match between Jamie Hayter and Hikaru Shida last night, once again they had to cut off any forward positive momentum for Jamie by just having her be in lockstep with Britt and Rebel against Shida, Toni, and Saraya. It is frankly absurd that Hayter is basically in exactly the same place now as she was 6 months ago, made even more egregious by Jamie being champion!
How much longer before Jamie's heat fades and we're once again back to the Britt Baker show? And after giving your new champ a big showcase the best you can do is setup another six-woman tag?
People say the women aren't stars like the men are, but when your male champion gets multiple people feuding with him, each with promo time putting over what a rat bastard they are, while Shida and Jamie got 30 seconds of pre-tape between matches. When you don't book wrestlers like stars and you treat a division and its title as second-rate, the fans pick up on it and stop caring.
Hayter deserves better, Shida deserves better, the whole division deserves better.
Thank you for your Ted talk.
