Happy New Year.
The latest rumors are that we may get Ronda vs. Rhea at this year's WrestleMania. This was pretty surprising as I had assumed we were heading towards Rhea vs. Bianca. Apart from the War Games match, the two had been kept apart pretty much all year, and Rhea has been made to look like an absolute beat the past several months….going through pretty much every female and even physically going to toe to toe with the men. The two have a history with each other on NXT and rose up the ranks the same year on Raw and Smackdown. It seems like the perfect story.
Last year, they decided not to do a far more natural Ronda vs. Becky and instead did Ronda vs. Charlotte. This also felt strange since during the Ronda/Becky/Charlotte feud, the personal issue always seemed to be between Ronda and Becky. Along with that, Becky was the one who pinned Ronda….so it seemed like she would have something to prove. Again, it seemed like a very natural story.
So for the long winded intro….but what's the deal with WWE missing the mark on these matches? It's like they have all the right characters in mind, but in the wrong place.
Given that WM is still four months away it’s seems a little early to worry about matches that haven’t even been teased yet.
