Legends Of Tomorrow Gets A New Poster

While I am never a fan of cheap photoshopped designs when it comes to posters, I still have to say I am extremely excited to checkout the newest entry into the DC TV Universe when LEGENDS OF TOMORROW hits the airwaves on January 21st. This looks like it will keep the “Arrowverse” going strong and I only hope the DC Film Universe will be as strong as its TV counterpart.

The WWE Needs To Give Sasha Banks And The Women Of Wrestling A Real Chance

During last week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, we as an audience were reminded just how absolutely lost the writers behind the scenes of the show truly are. During the first of two segments allowed to the women wrestlers…..I mean superstars……no wait I mean Divas, we saw the announcers acknowledge the incredible match from last week’s NXT: TAKEOVER RESPECT between Sasha Banks and Bayley.

There was a video package and even some nice quotes from respected press outlets showing just how important this moment was for women and the wrestling industry as a whole. Of course, this whole pomp and circumstance was shown in the background of yet another Nikki Bella vs Naomi match while Sasha Banks stayed on the outside of the ring being treated as just another interchangeable face in the Diva’s division.

The whole segment wasn’t a completely negative one though. As I mentioned there was that video package and the announcers did take some time to acknowledge Sasha’s achievement on NXT and they even played up the crowd chanting “we want Sasha” as part of the storyline to assuringly cause animosity between Team B.A.D. members Naomi, Tamina and Sasha but the problem was despite all that acknowledgment, nothing has changed for the women of the WWE on Monday night. Week in and week out we watch an interchangeable member of a three woman team face off against another interchangeable member of another three woman team.

The entire reason fans love the women of NXT is that while they were on NXT they were able to develop personalities and tell great stories. Sadly, on Monday nights they are treated as a group of beautiful females who fight each other. Nothing more. Nothing Less.

Sure, the term “Diva’s revolution” keeps getting thrown around and the announcers can try to play up nonexistent storylines all they want but in all honesty, fans who only watch on Monday nights have no reason to care about the ladies of the “Diva’s” division. If you are only watching Monday nights, the hype surrounding women’s wrestling and the “Divas revolution” probably doesn’t even make sense because there’s nothing happening on Mondays that supports a revolution or even anything slightly exciting for that matter.

I fully understand that despite my personal love for Sasha Banks and my devotion to tuning into NXT every week, most casual fans simply don’t watch NXT and probably don’t really understand how good Sasha and some of the other women from NXT truly are. The WWE Network boasts around 1 Million subscribers but even that doesn’t mean every one of those people actually watch NXT and when you look at the tens of millions of fans around the world you start to realize that despite how damn good the performers of NXT are, casual fans most likely don’t really understand that and when performers like Sasha are moved to Raw they need to have their talents showcased for the new larger audience, instead of being thrown into the background assuming everyone knows what they can do.

In the past, if superstars had a phenomenal match that absolutely “brought the house down” there would usually be a moment on Raw where the performers would come out and accept some praise from the crowd as a sign of respect. In Sasha Banks’ case, she got the video package and a slight acknowledgement in the overall “Bella” storyline but other than that, nothing special. Some would argue the fact that her even getting acknowledged should be enough but I’d argue it’s not. Sasha Banks and the ladies of NXT are not just some fad or flavor of the month, these women are the real deal and something we haven’t seen in a very long time.

In the case of Sasha Banks I’d say we are at the early moments of what could be a Hall of Fame career as she has the talent, personality and look that should skyrocket her to the top of the wrestling world and keep her there for a very, very long time. Unfortunately, on Monday nights, we as an audience are only told how good Sasha and the rest of the NXT women are and are rarely given the opportunity to them perform their craft.

How can a massive, live TV audience learn to appreciate just how good she is at being “The Boss” when she rarely as a mic in her hand now or even gets a 1 on 1 storyline for that matter? Sasha thrives when she has an opponent and a story she can sink her teeth into and unfortunately the storyline of “female team members are jealous of each other” (the same storyline that Team PCB is also currently performing by the way) just doesn’t do it. I have no doubt in my mind that if there’s a way for Sasha to make this jealously storyline work then she will absolutely knock it out of the park but the fact of the matter is she deserves better than this. In fact, all the Women of the WWE deserve better than this…..and so do we as fans.
