Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present

Normally this would be tough to pick and even though I could be positive and focus on Kofi finally officially being declared the #1 contender against Daniel Bryan. We shift focus to Charlotte & Asuka's match from this week's episode of Smackdown as it was a title match. Even though I can understand the logic of not wanting to spend more time to build another title match with such a short time between now and the big event. However, I do think there was a better way to go about it then having Charlotte get the title back especially considering the fact that she will be in the main event for the Raw Women's title.
In my opinion, if they didn't want to have to build a match for Asuka then they could've easily kept the title on her and had her compete in the Women's battle royal. The best part of her being in the battle royal would be that it could be used to create her first post Wrestlemania feud with someone eliminating her from the match. This does however prove that not only is the company struggling booking certain talents, but also the fact that it seems like they didn't have a long term plan going into this years event.
Though at this point it seems like the company will have a plan set in place for next years Mania following this years event which is something that should happen every year. Fact is long term booking does work and it helps make certain feud seem more organic or like they are meant to be happening and not forced. Looking at this years card it is clear that some of these matches seem like they are to thrown together which prevents fans in my opinion from getting excited about every match on the show. This doesn't always happen at Wrestlemania which is an issue, because most of the card is suppose to be worth watching and not something you feel like you can see on any of the normal programming. Either way though we are almost there and let's see what happens in the next couple of weeks.
