Natalya comments on Paige and her WWE status

Sporting News is featuring an interview with WWE star Natalya discussing Paige and her current status with WWE after it was revealed she has been pulled from the first ever women’s Royal Rumble match and reports she wasn’t cleared by WWE.

“I don’t know the particulars of exactly what happened with Paige. I know, obviously, she had surgery and then she came back, but I don’t know all the details of what exactly happened. I just know that she hasn’t spoken about it yet and WWE hasn’t released a statement so everything from this point, as we know it, is just waiting to see and time will tell. What we do in the ring is difficult. At any given moment, you can have ups and downs. I would just wait to see what happens with Paige and wait for more from WWE to make an official announcement.”

Sasha Banks wants women’s tag titles

Sky Sports is featuring an interview with Sasha Banks where she talks about the idea of introducing first ever women’s tag team titles in WWE.

“I think we have enough women on the roster now to actually have a women’s tag division. We’ve been given multiple storylines but at the same time, it’s very hard to accomplish something if you’re not actually fighting for anything. Only one woman can go after the women’s championship and I think if we had tag team championships we’d be able to create way more interesting storylines. We have tag matches all the time, every single week, so I say why not get a championship involved in that?”

    It wouldn’t be the first ever women’s tag titles. WWE had them in the 80s

  • Al79

    Yeah, the Jumping Bomb Angels and Glamour Girls were a lot better workers than about 75% of the roster today. They actually looked and worked tough. No one except for maybe Nia, Natalya, and Flair actually look tough. Most of the women on the roster today are less than 110 pounds. Bailey, Alicia Fox, Sasha, Mickie, Absolution, Alexa, Asuka, etc… Are so tiny, they don’t even compare to 80’s women wrestlers, or GLOW, to be honest.

  • Al79

    It seems ignorant that someone employed with the company doesn’t know that there were Women’s Tag Titles 30 years ago

  • JFJ

    The only female superstar currently on the WWE roster that is under 110 is Alexa Bliss. The rest are all in the 115-130 range except for Nia Jax who, as has been well publicized is well north of 200 and possibly Sarah Logan and Charlotte Flair.

    Also, how big do you think the Jumping Bomb Angels were? Neither of them weighed more than 120. You should know the old adage that has proven time and time again by people like Rey Mysterio, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk and the late, great Eddie Guerrero: Bigger doesn’t always mean better.

  • Al79

    Never said bigger is better, just said that I don’t see the workrate or toughness of women in the past. Today’s female division needs a lot of work. There’s 3 or 4 above average workers, out of 20+. Not a good percentage.

  • Moonsaves

    Read the interview – it’s Sky Sports that refers to it as “the first time ever”. Sasha just says she wants more belts for them feud over.

    When will there be the first ever women’s Buried Alive Match or Ring of Fire Match (since an Inferno Match won’t be happening).

  • Anonymous

    Do you see anyone up and coming from NXT poses a threat?(IF WWE uses them right? That’s a big if)

  • Al79

    Not really anyone that jumps out. Of course WWE has never used Natalya (their best worker) correctly, so you’re right, I wouldn’t expect them to change. They are going to have to add some NXT talent in the Women’s Rumble though, so that should be interesting. Although, I don’t expect a lot because of all the over the top eliminations that have to occur. We’ll see how that goes…

  • Paul Gallacher

    I don’t know. Maybe they mean the first since the company became WWE ?

  • Jamie King

    Im all for womens tag titles but I say have the womens tag team championship on 205 live (allowing both raw and sdl women appear, that way the whole cross brand roster situation doesnt get too messy). Raw and Smackdown have what 11 women on each show? that could be a problem for a decent womens tag division on each show. Just my opinion
