Not surprising at this because she was brought in during the pretty face lack of talent Diva era of women’s wrestling in WWE and they have moved past that into superstars that are actually talented in ring performers.
Well Ian, I dunno if you have or not but if you watched NXT back in 2012 – 13, Summer Rae is a talented in ring performer. She was great at NXT with the BFFs faction with Sasha Banks and Charlotte. I understand the rosters are pretty crowded right now but maybe she could do commentary for the upcoming Women’s Tournament.
I’m sure if they wanted to they could come up with something real quick. GOD I hope they come up with something lol…..
Why does everyone have to have a feud these days? Why can’t people just come out and have a match absent the idea of them having to feud with anyone?
Kyle was watching a different NXT than I was, because the BFFs were painful as heck to watch. Only Sasha was ready to be on TV at that time, although Charlotte came together fairly fast.
Summer vastly approved in the ring since then BTW, but she was B show filler for months and months before her injury already.
Captain Ass is spot on – aspiring for a championship should be the default setting and then if feuds are born along the way, but not for everyone, we’d appreciate those feuds all the more
Why even wrestle? Just play cards or pet their iguanas.
“The rosters are pretty crowded right now.” Yeah, like, six whole women on each show. Stonz is right – if they wanted to have something for her, they’d have something for her. And Ian is right – now that Eva Marie’s gone Summer Rae is the new Eva Marie. OK, maybe a little more talented (I’m not heartless, after all), but filling that role of not many people exactly clamoring for her return.
@Nick – Promo wise, Summer was great in NXT. I’ll admit that she wasn’t the best in the ring but over the years, she’s improved tremendously and if given the chance, could be a great top heel in the women’s division.
