Sasha Banks became an official double champion in WWE this week on RAW. She made history when doing so as she and Bayley are only the fifth set of people in WWE to pull off the accomplishment of being double champions.
Ember Moon saw this go down from home, but she might not be a huge fan of what happened. During her Twitch stream, Moon questioned why WWE needs two double champions in the Women’s Division.
She asked if they are going to do a “low-key Evolution” with Banks and Bayley wrestling for the top titles and reliving The Two Man Power Trip.
“Why do we need two double champions? Is SummerSlam going to be like low-key Evolution with Sasha and Bayley wrestling for their singles titles and also for the tag titles? Is that a thing? Are we just reliving Triple H [& Steve Austin, Two Man Power Trip] from 2001? Sasha & Bayley have done a great job with a limited roster, but there are too many people sitting at home to tie up all the titles with two people. I was kinda upset — the match was superb — I don’t like the fact that knowing, it was Kairi’s last [appearance], I don’t know if that’s the way you go. I feel you make it more of a threat than just Kairi getting beat up backstage.”
“I think you have Bayley beat-up Kairi and then have her with a forklift about to drop some cinder blocks. [Asuka] had [Sasha] in the Asuka Lock, all she had to do was sit back. It makes more sense if Kairi is in more of a life or death situation versus her getting thrown into stuff and stomped. I get we’re supposed to be angry, and kudos to them for making us angry. No one wanted Asuka to lose, everyone wanted NXT Asuka back and having an undefeated streak. That’s what WWE does. I fell for the ploy of ‘I’m angry because I saw my friend Asuka lose the title in a crappy way.’ Are we gonna have Sasha just lose the title to Lacey Evans or transfer Naomi over? They’re building to SummerSlam, right? As a fan, I feel like I got ripped because once again, I don’t get Bayley vs. Sasha.”
Sasha Banks and Bayley are in great positions right now in WWE. We’ll have to see how WWE books their way out of this situation, but it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see a big championship match at SummerSlam as it seemed to set up a perfect situation for a champion vs champion match.
