Bengaluru, Sep 27: The Smackdown Women’s division has shown that perfect booking and storylines are more than enough to draw more ratings.
While in the Draft Raw was able to grapple the star names, Smackdown women’s roster was filled up with most of the rookies from the NXT division.
They got Becky Lynch as the face of the division who was yet to win a championship here in the WWE till Backlash.
However, they utilized their female talents so well and now we are having not one but two mainstream storylines in the blue brand.
Apart from the title feud between Becky and Bliss, we have got a heated rivalry between Carmella and Nikki Bella which is booked so well, since the beginning.
Carmella was not getting the reaction that was expected after she was brought to the Smackdown brand and hence the creative turned her heel just after Summerslam.
Nikki Bella was getting a tremendous appreciation after returning from a career-threatening injury and so she was turned into a babyface despite her dominant natural heel persona.
Turning Carmella a heel had made her look vicious than ever. For weeks now, a regular beatdown for Nikki Bella in the hands of the prince of Staten Island has been the routine. It eventually cost Nikki two title opportunities. But, the best part is that the audience is fully into the feud even when they have not competed in a singles competition, till date.
We are hoping to see one in the near future as hinted by Smackdown General Manager, Daniel Bryan on the Talking Smack show. In addition, Bryan intended to make a no disqualification match between them at the No Mercy PPV.
It will be worth a match if it does take place since we have not got an official No DQ match in the Women’s revolution era.
Many still think that bringing Carmella on the main roster of WWE was a premature decision. However, she has proven herself against the longest reigning Divas champion of all time. Now, it will be interesting to see who comes out victorious from this mouth-watering feud at No Mercy PPV.
