Sasha’s Raw Promo

> Hi, Scott.

> What did you think of Sasha’s promo opening Raw? I’ll defer to your and your readers’ judgment on her delivery, but something about the content caught my attention.

> Other than Sasha not understanding how one night stands work (all she had to say was something like "if there’s anyone who knows about one night stands, it’s a Flair"), the thing that most stuck out to me was referencing the Bayley match from the Takeover Brooklyn show last year.

> From an in character perspective, why would the Boss bring up a match she lost? If a non-NXT viewer decided to check out the match, they would see her losing her title at the show. I understand laying the groundwork for a Bayley program, but shouldn’t Sasha care more about beating Charlotte to retain the title rather than having a "classic" (I think the Bayley-Sasha match got Match of the Year votes in the Observer) match that steals/owns the show (which is Ziggler’s line anyway)?

Yeah, the whole shift to "moments" instead of trying to win matches is part of the problem with the product in general. Plus the Bayley match was watched by a low percentage of the TV audience, so bringing it up as some legendary thing is pretty myopic.
