A Flair for the gold

Now that Charlotte Flair has regained the Raw Women's Championship again, my hope is that WWE will stop playing hot potato with the title. Since the draft and brand split in July, the championship has changed hands between Charlotte and Sasha Banks six times. That's a rate of more than once a month. 

WWE has gotten behind the women's movement which has been outstanding. However, I'm a fan of longer title runs. Not each one has to set a new record by any means, but I wouldn't mind Charlotte keeping the gold now until at least WrestleMania. I wrote earlier, I'd like to see her wear it until SummerSlam where she loses it to Nia Jax. But all signs point to Bayley as the heiress apparent to the Women's Championship.

I'm enjoying the storytelling more on SmackDown Live when it comes to the women's championship. But I still maintain WWE could easily have all the ladies on one show and get plenty of quality stories and matches. Since the 205 Division is on Raw, I'd suggest putting the women's roster on SmackDown, but I know this isn't going to happen anytime soon.

I'll continue to enjoy the matches and stories and hope that Charlotte will hold that title for a while and carry on with her pay per view win streak. Woo!
