The RAW Women’s Division

Highlights of the Division

So Alexia Bliss did the unthinkable and actually defeated Bayley for the RAW Women’s Championship at Payback. Bliss has been the most inconsistent champion the WWE has produced this year and her record is proof of it. She might have secured the pin on Bayley again in the huge eight-person tag team match on RAW but she’ll need to be booked with tremendous momentum. Being a title holder in the WWE with .500 win/loss record for the year shouldn’t be something you should be proud of—someone should tell Alexia that for future reference.   

Bayley not only lost her championship at Payback but also was pinned by Bliss again on RAW. In all honesty I’m not sure what the deal is with the WWE and how they are booking Bayley for the long haul. She’s the John Cena of the Women’s Division with her massive popularity with the fans but she’s treated like she’s still competing in NXT. She’s still owed a rematch for the championship but I’m not confident that she’ll win it back.

Nia Jax and Sasha Banks had a brief encounter with the champ at the beginning of RAW but they’ll be in prime position to challenge the winner of the rematch between Bayley and Bliss for the title. Nia hasn’t gotten a singles match for the championship and should be looked at as a future champion in waiting.

In the pretenders section of the division—Emma and Alicia Fox were the victors of the tag team match that kicked off RAW. Emma might have some unfinished business with Dana Brooke while Mickie James will need to secure her first win on RAW since the Superstar Shakeup—she’s been 0-2 since.   

These are the rankings for the division this week.
