SmackDown Women’s Championship
Charlotte Flair (C) vs. Asuka
The Dream: This is put on last, and Ric Flair spends the entire match crying.
The Nightmare: This is put on first and Ric Flair spends the entire match yelling inappropriate things at Asuka that are somehow complimentary and horribly degrading at the same time.
The Hope: A match that honors the two best women’s performers the company has ever had to this point, and does so in a way that sets up an even bigger match between the two (and depending on her development, Ronda) at next year’s WrestleMania.
The Reality: Asuka wins, but with some honest-to-God chicanery that turns her heel and kind of , just a bit, takes some of the luster off The Streak.
