Sasha Banks may be a four-time Women’s Champion, but she has never ever had a successful title defense. If you were to count the total number of days she’s been champion, you’d have less than 80 days. That may seem like a lot, but that’s spread out across four reigns. To put things into perspective, Dean Ambrose was WWE Champion for 84 days, and Jinder Mahal for 97 days (and counting). Meanwhile, both Alexa Bliss and Charlotte have both held the title for more than 100 days (113 for Charlotte, 112 for Bliss).
If WWE wants to capitalize on the Boss’s momentum, then they must invest in her as a champion. Make her seem like a capable wrestler. Let her actually defend the title a few times. In fact, she can defend it against these people.
Right now, Emma’s in a sort-of story where she complains about not being featured on the show. While it’s hardly the most exciting thing, it’s something. I think it wouldn’t be illogical for Emma to somehow find herself in title contention. Just have her whine and complain before Sasha demands she shut up. Or have her challenge Banks. Either way works.
Emma, along with Summer Rae, came from a weird spot. They most certainly were different from the divas. They also weren’t a big part of the whole “Women’s Revolution”, but they certainly inspired it. As a result, they’ve often been overlooked. It’s a shame, because Emma is actually a really good wrestler.
The last time Sasha and Emma faced off in singles action was in NXT in 2014. They’ve both improved since then. Let the showcase their skills by fighting over the Women’s Championship. It won’t be bad.
If nothing else, it would be a good time-killer for a one and done feud. It adds 28 days to Sasha’s reign. It’s most definitely an option.
