I mean, her Bayley "impression" was saying "I'm Bayley". Its not that hard to hold the accent.

Rusev is the draw, Lana married up.

It would also have been an easy excuse to just use her normal voice.

Considering the Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax fanbase is now measuring a superstar's success by how long their lines are for autograph sessions, I don't think it'll phase them if Alexa vs Nia is a bad match.

lana was a big part of the act when rusev did his big us title run, it's only that insane hot summer angle with dolph and then pairing her up with tamina instead of back with rusev that made her look worse

I got nothing against Lana. She's good at what she does, or at least she was when she was with Rusev. I imagine she could still be effective as a manager if used properly. But the idea that led to putting Lana with Rusev that he didn't have the charisma to get over seemed to be wrong. It turns out he's a charismatic and funny dude and grew past Lana. That's not a knock on her, but at this stage I think its safe to say she needs him more than he needs her.

Obviously I was just joking about the marriage thing.

WWE autograph sessions are free to attend and partcipate in, from what I recall. They aren't referring to Axxess sessions.

Also someone said Alexa fans are nazis probably because I post about said fans in the Stupid Wrestling Fan thread.

Yeah, even if you ignore that she's filming a movie (a thing that a LOT of full-timers take time out to do, btw, or are we side-eyeing Miz and Becky?), anyone who thought full-time for Ronda meant 'does meaningless 6-woman tags on Raw and Main Event' is very, very mistaken

Yeah, I think WWE is stretching the term full time here. I think its more likely she ends up working a Brock Lesnar like schedule. Maybe appearing a little more than that. Whatever brand she's on though is likely going to suffer, at least in terms of quality though! WWE has proven they can't book good main roster women's feud without a title on the line, and I'll be shocked if Ronda isn't either Smackdown or RAW Women's Champion by the end of the year.

I don't care if she shows up at every stupid Raw because Raw blows and the more you're on it, the less over you'll be, but imo if they're gonna say "full-time", she should at least be at every pay per view. Not necessarily wrestling, since she really shouldn't wrestle at EC, but after Mania, if she pulls a Brock and fucks off for over two months and doesn't come back around until July, I really don't see why I should care about her, or why the people negotiating TV rights with WWE should, either, frankly.

She has obligations elsewhere that'll keep her off TV for a bit, but the Rumble is where you do all your big angles to set up Wrestlemania so they made sure to get her on that. It's not that big a deal.

What would she have done at Raw the night after the Rumble? More stupid pointing?

Been on tv so that people would watch the weekly tv. If she is supposed to draw you have her draw people to weekly tv while your contact negotiations are coming up.

Yeah but she can do that after her other obligations are taken care of.

Until Wrestlemania, all she has to do is set up her Wrestlemania match. She doesn't need to be on every Raw for the next two months to do that.

In any other case, you might be right, but having her on Raw every week would kill any drawing power she has. By week 4 Alexa would be cutting one of those promos where they photoshop Ronda's head onto the Statue of Liberty and doing a bad impression of her to bury her.
