3 WWE Stars Raw Can’t Lose in Superstar Shake-Up

3 of 4


2. Sasha Banks

Both WWE Women’s divisions can use a makeover. Through nine months of the brand split, almost every possible feud has been done on each show, which led to repetitive matches like Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks, Flair vs. Bayley, Alexa Bliss vs. Naomi, and Bliss vs. Becky Lynch. It took some of the air out of the Women’s divisions, especially heading into WrestleMania 33. That may be solved over the next two nights, however.

One woman who shouldn’t be moving from Raw is Banks, despite her facing Flair and Banks more times than someone can count. It’s due to her unfinished business with a particular hugger.

Banks teased a heel turn in the months leading up to WrestleMania. She helped Bayley win the Raw Women’s Championship from a Flair, which screamed “heel” from start to finish. No babyface helps her friend cheat to win, unless it’s a specially-built storyline. Even how the Boss talked with Bayley on Raw Talk seemed indicative.

Other minor instances seemed to show these two heading for a feud, maybe after WrestleMania. That hasn’t developed yet, but there’s still ample opportunity for it to happen. Of course, that means keeping both women on the same brand, and with Bayley being the Raw Women’s Champion, Banks would have to stick around.
