Charlotte's Cageside Evaluation

What you loved:

  1. Figure-Four - The evolution of this iconic move, the Figure-Eight. No, the Figure-Five! Because eight is not enough!...
  2. In-Ring - Still fairly new to the game, but has an excellent, athletic moveset. Has put on some quality matches with Bayley, Natalya, and Becky Lynch.
  3. Physique - She's in amazing condition, and is quite imposing in the ring.
  4. Pedigree - Ric. Flair.
  5. Potential - Plenty of time to make some improvements, she has the abilities to be one of the best ever.

Best comment comes via ReverendKain:

"She’s been in the business for a little over two years and she’s already had two or three of the best women’s matches in WWE history."


What you loathed:

  1. Main Roster - Multiple issues here: Creative's inability to get NXT people over, the length of matches for women are typically short, and many of her opponent's skills are lacking. It's unfortunate that the normally good "call-up" isn't so good in WWE.
  2. Natural Selection - Although a solid name, the move itself needs more impact.
  3. Mic - Still stiff on the mic, but improving. Easily Charlotte's biggest weakness.
  4. Father's Daughter - Ric Flair is a legend, and she's his daughter, we get it. We don't need this same gimmick for every second generation wrestler; just ask Curtis Axel.
  5. Entrance Music - Case in point.

Best comment comes via Arai (full comment here):

"The Genetically Superior schtick pisses me off, because right now, everyone’s playing it as though it’s true. What kind of message is that to send? That hard work can never overcome your genetics if you weren’t born to win? That you’re either born with it or you’re not, and if you’re not, you need to just give up already?"

On to the poll! With 318 votes, Charlotte's average score is 3.9.

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick was loose.

Until then!
