I was incredibly impressed by the official debuts of Alexa Bliss and Carmella this week. In many ways, Bayley not being drafted during the brand extension took the spotlight away from the idea that these two women had made it. Each, respectively, came out looking strong during their debuts, and left a tremendous impact on me. Iâ€™ve watched them on NXT, but seeing them both on the main roster as of late, on their own (without their boys), has been spectacular. A fan, a while ago, had pointed out how Alexa mimics Trish Stratus, and I couldnâ€™t agree more after her debut on Tuesday; her voice, somewhat of her look, and style, how she performs in the ring: Alexa may be destined for the Hall of Fame too someday, however, it is WAY to early to be talking about that. Alternatively, Carmella came out strong, and delivered well in her match too. Her mic skills are strong, and the only thing she may need to overcome on the main roster, is being on a different brand than Enzo and Cass; and winning over the audience with a similar gimmick.
Shout out to Becky Lynch and Nattie, for helping to push the debuts of these two over as well. Iâ€™ve said in the past, it takes a true pro wrestling talent to help make your competitor look good, and Lynch and Natalya were both able to achieve this. May I also say, that heel Nattie is growing on my tremendously, and I feel like the character is finally settling in with her bad girl ways.
The only thing missing Tuesday? Naomi. Itâ€™s been a long while since Naomi has been in storyline-related material on television, and I truly hope that the Creative team is on it. I miss seeing her wrestle, and hope something is coming down the pipe, soon.
As for Eva Marie. She has yet to wrestle, so I am yet to be impressed. I get this whole angle of hers is to get heat, and sheâ€™s getting a reaction from fans, not to mention the fact that her name was trending on Twitter Tuesday; so, as a heel, sheâ€™s accomplishing what she wants to, from a character perspective. Sheâ€™s building a persona, which is all fine and good; but, if the girl canâ€™t wrestle or handle herself on the mic – well, then, sheâ€™s not really worth talking about. Other than extending her storyline of a non-existent debut, there is nothing outstanding to write about, as it relates to Eva Marie.
