In 2018 she made a remark about how Mexicans need to get back on their taco trucks and leave the country. She also supports a border wall and separation of family at the border. Of course, it didn't stop there. All through 2020 she supported various right wing movements and especially Donald Trump, regularly liking and commenting on his Instagram posts. But, to add more fuel onto the fire, she didn't take COVID guidelines seriously as she was spotted at several biker rallies with Braun Strowman, with none of them wearing masks, of course.

It didn't gain much traction because before this point she was pretty much flying under the radar, as no one really cared about what she did. But now that she's the champion, it'll be interesting to see if some of this stuff actually gains traction. Because if so, it will get awfully ugly for WWE. Especially since they are trying to break into the latin market.

This isn't good by any stretch but it also seems par for the course for WWE. I doubt it will gain any traction. This is the company about to do a Nigerian War Drum Match at Wrestlemania with a guy doing a fake Nigerian accent.

WWE Employs multiple sex pests and feature them prominently on multiple shows with no repercussions. There's no way the C show women's champ being a chud will matter in the long run.

Man, don't even put the thought of Io getting called up into my head. I have zero confidence she gets used properly. But I agree in that if she loses, she is getting called up (which is unfortunate because I don't see her being utilized properly at all, especially if she gets sent to RAW). Because otherwise NXT runs the risk of Io overshadowing Raquel still.

Did Raquel hurt you personally. I can't fathom giving a poo poo of any wrestler in WWE or NXT much, yet she's been in almost every post of yours the last few days

I wouldn't even know who she was if it wasn't for you.

That's a real loving good look for a person with the last name Gonzalez. I swear to God, Latinx just in a race to try and see themselves show their whole loving rear end towards the rest of POC.

Long overdue is like.. Cesaro winning a title. These guys joined during the dusty classic.

Yeah, considering that Velveteen Dream is still employed, Jordan Devlin is not only still employed but a champion in a fairly major storyline right now, and Matt Riddle is not only still employed but also a champion on the main roster and had his name changed to prevent search engines bringing back stories about him being a piece of poo poo, a woman having terrible opinions on immigrants (and opinions in general) isn't going to really matter to the higher ups.

That said, I do have to ask you this Darkstar - considering your rather strong love of the Joshis that would you be as outraged as you seem to be if it was Raquel taking the title off of Ember or Storm or Dakota or Shotzi or any non-Japanese woman?

I enjoy main roster WWE more than NXT these days. There's something about the PWG/EVOLVE style filtered through the WWE system that just grates on me. I can't really explain it very well. Main roster WWE however remains a complete car crash which is entertaining in its own way.

I would argue yes, it would irritate me just as much. At the end of the day, Raquel is still a huge piece of poo poo, regardless of who she beat for the title. And it's an ugly look to have someone...opinionated as her beating up a minority or non-US citizen for a title, considering her views on immigration and race.

Racism shouldn't be rewarded. But the damage has been done. And Triple H doesn't care, as he thinks Raquel holding the title will make her into some big star that everyone will love and worship.

I think the hottest take I've seen from last night's Takeover is that Io made Raquel look like poo poo apparently and is incredibly selfish? Because she controlled like 95% of the match.

The selfish comments are especially funny considering Thunder Rosa has mentioned that Io is one of the most selfless and wonderful women she's ever shared a locker room with.
