The Sasha Banks and Bayley storyline is beginning to come full circle. After the iconic reign that Bayley has enjoyed for the better part of the year, Sasha Banks fulfilled her destiny on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.
Even though it was through a countout, The Boss defeated Asuka to win her fifth Raw Women’s Championship. With this, Sasha broke the record for the maximum reigns with the Raw Women’s Championship.
Even though Charlotte Flair is a nine time women’s Champion, five of those reigns have come with the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Which means that she has only won the Raw Women’s Championship four times.
Another important point to note is that the ‘Golden Role Models’ now hold all the available titles in the WWE Women’s division. This speaks volumes about the immense confidence bestowed by Vince McMahon on the two women.

They are definitely building towards a massive WrestleMania showdown between the two women. However, fans on Twitter, while acknowledging the brilliance of the two Superstars, are not happy with the casualties of this storyline.
As per a section, stars like Asuka are being used as fodder in order to keep Sasha and Bayley firmly on top. No matter how brilliant your top stars are, is it worth to bury your entire division in their wake?
Whether or not that’s true, the fan reactions go a long way in getting hold of the public sentiment. So without any further ado, let’s take a look at what Twitter thought of this match.
Twitter divided over Sasha Banks winning
Twitter fans were split right down the middle over this booking decision.
The number of days Sasha Banks held on to the Raw women's championship the first 4 times she won them.
Don't let anyone tell you she doesn't deserve this, cause she does.

They are the best thing on WWE tv right now. And judging by some of these mark comments they do their job really well

I’m gonna make a crazy prediction & say that the @WWE is going to unify the RAW & SmackDown Women’s titles…again. It’ll be @SashaBanksWWE vs @itsBayleyWWE for the WWE Unified Women’s Championship with Bayley winning it all.

Nobody is hating on Sasha Banks but Asuka has been nothing more than a stepping stone for the Horsewomen and now that Charlotte and Becky are gone Asuka now has to make Sasha look good
She should be facing Bayley not Asuka we Asuka fans are sick of the Horsewomen

This is why Viewership is down. As good as Bayley and Sasha have been, Sasha didn't need a championship, but it was obvious she was going to win. You know why? Because everyone knows that the only reason asuka ever won the title was because Heyman wanted her to. Vince doesn't.

The last time Sasha Banks held a Singles title here is how the world looked. The Eagles never won Super Bowl, The Raptors never won an NBA championship, Lebron & Kyrie were in Cleveland, Durant just won his 1st title & Becky wasn’t even the Man yet nor was Rousey in WWE.

As you can see, the decision has certainly polarized the fans. While some feel that this was a long time coming for Sasha , others aren’t very happy with the ending of the match as well as the long term viability.
What’s your opinion on this entire scenario?
