From the N2C Archive – August 9, 2014 – The Teacher’s Lounge: Best Women’s Division Ever?

On an August 2014 episode of NXT on WWE Network, Charlotte takes on Becky Lynch.

I just watched an old-school type match. The two competitors traded offense in the beginning, then the obviously more polished one began to dominate. They isolated a body part and worked it over, shades of Arn Anderson or the British Bulldog. The younger talent made a valiant but fleeting attempt at a comeback, but it was firmly swatted down, ending with a quick finishing maneuver. This was the type of match you saw all the time on TV in the 90’s, and it was excellent to see it today.

Who were the competitors in this excellent event? NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte and Becky “Thank God they don’t make me Irish step dance anymore” Lynch.

Brie Bella slaps Stephanie McMahon on WWE's Monday Night RAW

Stephanie McMahon has been on a vindictive streak, her fury directed against one half of that magical twin duo, The Bella Twins. The storyline, if you go back, is really about a conflict between Stephanie and Brie Bella, stemming from Stephanie’s ongoing issues with Brie’s husband, Daniel Bryan. The last time we saw Brie Bella, she was slapping the crap out of Stephanie’s face during the final moments of her employment with the WWE. Brie would go on to quit the business that night, ending the use of Brie as leverage in the feud with Daniel Bryan – a noble sacrifice.
