WWE has struggled with booking its entire roster. While the top of the division may be involved with interesting storylines, the rest of the group are left floundering. That’s especially true in the women’s division. However, Doudrop and Bianca Belair are in a storyline where no gold is involved, but it can become one of the best storylines in the women’s division.
Doudrop’s initial introduction to the division saw her paired with Eva Marie in a failed attempt to get her over via the latter’s heelish tactics. Doudrop always had a positive fan reaction, but WWE Creative decided to take her down the path of becoming a heel with Bianca Belair the focus of her animosity.
Beginning before Survivor Series, these two have developed into what is a solid feud for the upper-midcard of the Raw Women’s Roster. Belair is pretty much Teflon with the WWE Universe, as fans will always cheer her every step of the way. Doudrop has the potential to be a popular performer and has the in-ring abilities to go move-for-move with any other woman on the roster.
The two came head to head on Monday Nights and have since delivered very strong matches during their encounters. The fans were into all of the action and were especially excited to see Belair lift Doudrop for an attempt at the KOD. Seeing her finish things off with the 450 Splash was another highlight. Even though viewers will get another rematch between the two, they’ve shown that they can perform well against each other, which is a key aspect of helping them get over in this position.
The storyline can go on beyond this year’s Rumble and on to WrestleMania. Doudrop and Belair have recently started their bout, and it would take some time to build the storyline. Royal Rumble is not far away, and these two can warm up their fight until the next big show. The two can build on each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and the result will be a match without any title on the line at Day 1 and then on to the Rumble.
It’s expected that the two women will end up in a one-on-one match at WWE Day 1, which should be the blow-off for this phase of the feud. WWE consistently makes the mistake of keeping angles running for too long, which hurts the parties involved. However, Belair and Doudrop are two performers that can potentially excel in this situation and build each other up at the same time.
