WWE held another Draft, and fans haven’t seen those new rosters in action yet. That being said, there are still a few people that are worried the women’s division on the red brand lacks a bit of depth.
Click here for our complete breakdown of the 2023 WWE Draft.
In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer wrote that it appears Rhea Ripley and Becky Lynch will battle for the RAW Women’s Title. This appears to be one of the few ready-made feuds they have to offer.
The single women’s title picture really looks like Ripley as champion against Lynch.
Rhea Ripley seems like an incredibly strong champion who isn’t going to settle for a short title reign. That being said, The Nightmare is going to enter the red brand as their Women’s Champion, and there aren’t a ton of options for her.
It was also noted that the SmackDown women’s roster, “lacks depth, but they could split up one of the teams and put Rodriguez and Morgan in a babyface slot. Stratus is obviously part-time, and groomed for a program with Lynch this summer. That would leave Ripley as a dominant champion without an opponent unless Baszler & Rousey get the titles, which was the plan at one point, and those two get moved into the top babyface singles slot.”
The report also stated that, “
Of the other women, “perhaps they could go with Zoey Stark or Piper Hartwell to mix at the top and Niven has the size to be put there even though she’s never gotten the big push. Natalya is the ultimate utility player and always can be plugged in like a star.”
We will have to see how WWE shakes up the rosters. They could always put a lot of effort into pushing someone like Lacey Evans into a main event spot, but only time will tell how successful that will be. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more on this story, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world.
