My 2nd biggest issue is WWE actually breaking their own character lore which often confuses fans. Braun heel turn on Roman was a uncharacteristic heel turn. Even if Braun wanted revenge on Roman why would he end Raw standing tall with heels. The fact Braun is didn't attack both Drew and Ziggler makes no sense if he is blurring the lines. WWE has booked Braun every close to his character up until that point. Remember he won the tag team titles from the bar in a handicap match, eliminated 5 ppl in a EC, and won what wwe billed as the greatest royal rumble. So why didn't Braun either A let the heels beat down Roman then the Ambrose then Rollins then Drew and Dolph or B he tags in the hot tag wins the rest of the match solo then slams Roman. Bringing out Ambrose to get slammed then Rollins. Because if wwe did either A or B and kept to Braun character who has no reason to side with drew and Dolph not cause they are heels but because he doesn't work well with others. That's been the story told from Balor and Bobby time with Braun the only ppl it would make sense for Braun to get help taking out the shield is the Wyatts. But even then story reason would make that make no sense either. Wwe narrative is Roman is the hero period we can paint Braun as a anti hero but this isn't a Becky situation were she was in need of a character shift. Braun already had the edge from a heel run and crowd support what's going on now is Braun is going to be the 1st of Roman victims. And if rumors are true it makes sense why he didn't attack Drew who wwe is really trying to protect from looking too weak if he is up next for Roman.

The Shield triple threat for the WWE championship was crippled when they last tried to sell that story and I am sure Ambrose, Roman and Rollins would love a chance to give us at the least the best Universal title match. Rhonda vs Flair is also the apex of WWE's story of the evolution of Womens Wrestling. Once Asuka went to Smackdown I wanted to see her vs Becky lynch in a Submission Match for the Smackdown Womens Championship. Angle vs Chris type match came to mind and if Rhonda vs Flair is your Austin vs Rock at WM17 for the women then Becky vs Asuka is your Angle vs Chris at that same event. Its the perfect counter part to the more Sports entertainment wrestling story of Rhonda vs Charoltte. You give them ample time with your WWE championship match of Bryan vs Miz. Styles vs Orton fits perfectly on the card and follows suit with alot of Ortons non title Mania matches especially if Cena is not apart of Mania. AJ's character is becoming more fragile with each rivalry. AJ was at his peak during his heel run as a character and while I dont think he should turn heel he does still show flashes of the Styles that beat up his Commissioner. So seeing a face AJ pushed back to at least that point by a heel Orton who if he is in engaged and I have no doubt a match with Styles at Mania would not engage Randy they could put together another great addition to Mania.
Styles vs Bryan would be my only backup to Miz vs Bryan for the WWE title. If WWE wants to extend AJ's title run if for whatever reason they dont want to give it to the Miz who is at his peak now and a world title run is something I know he would takeoff with. Styles vs Bryan would be Smackdown best effort to contend for MOTN opposite a Shield triple threat. If the Shield are Raw main characters SD main characters are Styles, Bryan and even the Miz. But Styles and Bryan been with SD since the split and are the faces of SD.

Charoltte despite WWE perspective isn't even the top 3 female baby faces she maybe 5 at best and honestly she isn't that. From a fan reaction standpoint you have 1.Becky
2.Ronda (Becky is higher for organically being over for years)
3.Sasha (fanbase wants her heel but does get a consistent pop)
You can even argue Ember Moon and Naomi for being bigger babyfaces then Charlotte.
Not saying Charlotte is a bad babyface or a failing babyface but booking wise she is the female Roman and if WWE isn't learning from his arc I don't see them learning from this one.
Becky has remained the most over female babyface. She cuts the best babyface promos out of the women( watch her talking smack or promos opposite Alexa Bliss who I think Becky can give he a run for her money on the Mic if let loose). Crowd chants Becky name more then any female superstar since the brand split besides Ronda. And she is top 5 if not top 3 female wrestlers they have.
What's even sadder is Becky from Summerslam has a chance to connect with the crowd in a edgy way like stone cold. Everything they want in Ronda they already have in Lynch. Especially since the title of this story arc as to way fans cheer Becky and boo Flair is ENTITLEMENT! We live in a era were being handed chances opposite a person we have went on this rollercoaster ride with will get you booed. Being thrown in championship matches will get you booed. It was never a good look for Cena or a good look for Roman and even a worse look for Flair who has done so much in a short span of time while other deserving women are sidelined. That is why no matter how they spin it Becky can be a tweener but she will never be the heel in this story and Charlotte is no we're near the face

From ROH to TNA to WWE, if WWE could get their hands on the library of ROH and TNA i could only imagine the video package that could be created for these guys. The masterful job of saving their first encounter in WWE for Summerslam adds another layer to it. I am of the stance that either this match will be either be a disappointment or it will be a Summerslam classic that debuts a historic wrestling rivalry. If they are given the time and I think they will be they can weave together a match that restores some of the luster the WWE title has lost. I hope that they put on a match that makes us say this is why the WWE title should have been the main event.
As for the winner I am going with Joe. As big of a fan I am of Styles I think Joe should get a run with the title. Not anything long I think I would see how Joe does as a transitional champion only to lose it back to AJ in a ppv or 2. If Jinder can carry the title on SD I think Joe with his fantastic heel work would give the title a good shot in the arm which Styles can win it back. Especially if Bryan resigns I think if Miz vs Bryan isnt revisted Bryan vs Styles would be the next best thing and a great way to bring it back around to their match on the 1st SD after Mania.
