It looks like WWE is indirectly reaching out to the fans more than what they are leading us to believe. Recently, the company polled the WWE Universe of who should be the next opponent for Brock Lesnar. Despite reports of Vince McMahon nixing the idea due to losing interest, Finn Balor was still an overwhelming favorite to compete against The Beast.
WWE has another poll out to see who fans want the returning Paige’s feud to be. The former Diva’s Champion made her return last week, and brought NXT talent Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose with her. The following night on SmackDown Live, more NXT talent – Liv Morgan, Ruby Riot, and Sarah Logan – invaded the show, attacking Naomi and Becky Lynch, as well as ending the Women’s Championship match by attacking Charlotte Flair and Natalya. We reported that there may be a tie-in to Paige regarding the SmackDown Live debuts as well.
The poll is much closer in numbers than Balor’s, with Alexa Bliss edging out at 30 percent. Asuka is at a very close second with 28 percent, followed by Sasha Banks in third place at 19 percent.
Based on her remarks on social media, there could be a feud brewing between Paige and Asuka.
.@RealPaigeWWE you brought back up, why? You aren’t ready for Asuka either? ?
