It’s been called a revolution. It’s been called an evolution. Whatever you want to call it, there is no denying that the women of WWE have taken their division to a new level. Gone are the days of pillow fights and opponent-strip matches.

The women are athletes, great athletes. And while they still suffer from bad booking, through no fault of their own, they have managed to take us on a ride down what was once thought to be the road less traveled in WWE.

From the Mae Young Classic to the main event of WrestleMania 35, the women of WWE have proven that in the world of professional wrestling, there is certainly room for Becky and Bianca. Sasha and Shayna. Rhea and Ronda. But… Reginald?

Reginald’s addition to some storylines in the women’s division has stuck out for the wrong reasons.

This gimmick felt flat from the moment Reginald handed Carmella a glass of champagne. WWE once again decided to unnecessarily pair Carmella with a comedy act male Superstar, which was the wrong direction to take.

We had already seen Carmella run with James Ellsworth and R-Truth, and now Reginald. Same gimmick, different ring gear. And let’s be honest, the chemistry wasn’t there. At least Carmella connected with R-Truth despite the slapstick nature of their storyline.

But what exactly has Reginald brought to the table aside from swooning and a few acrobatic moves in the ring? The whole character is a bore and a detriment to the current status of women’s wrestling in WWE.

It’s time to get rid of Reginald. And we don’t even have to see him leave. WWE could simply keep him off television. Fans practically forget he’s there in the first place until he pops up and ruins something.

As it stands, Monday Night Raw is the worst product in WWE, and Reginald certainly doesn’t make it better. He’s a rainstorm 10 minutes after a rainstorm: Just when you think the bad weather is gone, there it is again.

If Reginald’s inclusion in the women’s storylines and segments continues, it won’t be long before we see him having a one-on-one match with the best Superstar on Monday Night Raw: Charlotte Flair. And what a turn that would be.

Imagine if Ric Flair had defended the WWE Championship at WrestleMania VIII against The Mountie instead of “Macho Man” Randy Savage. That’s what a Charlotte and Reginald match would feel like.

Now with all things considered, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for Reginald on the WWE roster. But he doesn’t belong here, in this division, buzzing around like a fly the women are constantly trying to swat.

And maybe soon, Monday Night Raw will be better. And maybe Reginald will find his place in some other division, somewhere far away from what the revolution-evolution has produced. Because all he’s doing right now is bringing these women down.

The truth is, the women of WWE don’t need much to be great. Just some decent storylines and a wrestling ring. The rest will work itself out. The company should believe in what they were pushing and allow the women to stand out on their own.
