Bianca Belair will defend the RAW Women’s Championship against Asuka in less than three weeks at WrestleMania 39.
In his latest “Reffin’ Rant” series, WWE’s longest-tenured referee Jimmy Korderas critiqued WWE’s plans for Asuka and Belair on the Road To WrestleMania 39. He said,
“The road to WrestleMania continued on Monday Night Raw leading to the women’s championship match at WrestleMania, but is the story there to accompany that match? What I’m trying to say here is, yes, I know that match at WrestleMania between Asuka and Bianca Belair, it will be a — these women will put on a hell of a show. Let’s put it that way. But the story going in is not exciting. Yes, I want to see the match because of the women involved, but at the same time, I also want to see a match where there’s a story, where there’s an angle, where there’s something to entice me. There’s no gravitas. It’s just, ‘Hey, here’s two talented women going out there, they’re going to have a heck of a match.’ That’s fine, but in the world of pro wrestling you need a story and a build toward WrestleMania to entice me to want to see it much more.”
WWE WrestleMania 39 takes place on April 1st and 2nd at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
In today's #ReffinRant as much as I believe a certain match at Mania with deliver, the build to this match has not IMO. Give me reasons to want to see it. 🤔 #StaySafe pic.twitter.com/IiWKmOekB2
