Why Sasha Banks vs Charlotte Should Main Event Summerslam

by Apr 16, 20160 comments

At Wrestlemania 32, the new Women’s division of WWE truly came of age. A triple-threat match between the defending champion, Charlotte, The Lass Kicker Becky Lynch, and The BOSS Sasha Banks, was the match of the night and almost universally praised among the critical community. The movement which started in NXT, has finally been put in the right position to soar to new heights on the main roster. The match between 3 of the 4 Horsewomen (Hey, WEEE WANT SOME BAYYYY LAAAYYY) was treated with a level of importance not seen at a Wrestlemania, well since ever. Charlotte was welcomed with a large display of pyro, and she added to the sense of occasion with an incredible robe that was a Wrestlemania moment in itself. Did I mention Sasha Banks brought out SNOOP DOGGY DOGG??? Only one of the most universally beloved hip-hop artists ever. If you don’t like Snoop, I don’t even want to be associated with you.

While most fans I’ve conversed with would have liked Sasha Banks to win the championship, this sets up WWE to really see where they stand on how much they want to push the women. If it’s not just all talk, Charlotte vs Sasha Banks should headline Summerslam 2016.

When looking at Wrestlemania, the biggest stories coming out of it were, Shane McMahon jumping off the cell, the legends beating up dudes half their age, the muting of the crowd when Roman Reigns appeared, and how 3 women stole the show. Traditionally, the hottest combo of acts at a Wrestlemania find a way to meet up at Summerslam. Coming out of Dallas, who on the main roster were hotter than the women? Getting there is fairly easy, as they’ve began to tease a Ric/Charlotte split which could occupy them both, before getting him out the way before the showdown with Sasha. Sasha could go the route of Daniel Bryan after Wrestlemania 29, and just be showcased in incredible matches until the demand reaches a fever pitch.

With Summerslam descending upon Brooklyn again, lets not forget last year when the aforementioned Sasha Banks owned the weekend with Bayley. She could be preparing for back to back years of excellence. Sasha’s chase for the newly christened WWE Women’s Championship, is more than worthy of a main event position in WWE if done correctly. Matching her with her greatest rival in Charlotte, could be the basis of a generational rivalry that could define an important chapter in the history of Women’s Wrestling. It’s an event that is going to draw by itself, so WWE can make a statement by putting these two in position to “earn” that main event from now until August. We’ve got nothing to worry about in the ring with these two women, as they have phenomenal chemistry and are a walking 4 Star match combo.

With the jury still out on how Roman Reigns will move as champion in WWE, and a returning injured roster that will have to be figured out on the fly, not only is Sasha vs Charlotte a safe choice but it’s just something we all want to see. They’ve been strategically kept apart on a big stage since coming to the main roster, with Charlotte becoming champion, while Sasha never gets pinned. Imagine WWE throwing the entire backstory of their time in NXT together, with sit down interviews, with real tension. Maybe they even use Summer Rae in some respect to help tell this story. WWE has a chance to open a door to a room never previously entered, with giving these women the Summerslam stage. The success they could see is a complete unknown, but this is a prime time to find out.

Oh yeah, if Ric is still around, make this a steel cage match, and watch these women work. I bet Ric blades.
