Paige was fired as their manager by the Kabuki Warriors on last night’s Monday Night RAW. If we are to believe Dave Meltzer, it was to get the Kabuki Warriors over as the heels.
Asuka and Kairi Sane are hell good of performers and as it happens with many of the good performers, the fans were cheering for them despite them being the heels. And the trend was not limited to the RAW, but it was more prominent on the house shows.
Dave Meltzer said the same thing on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio and mentioned that despite Kabuki Warriors facing the hometown talents in the IIconics, they were being cheered all the way. And WWE needed some push for the fans to start booing them.
Brad Shepard added that Paige’s idea for the firing included her getting into Asuka Lock. But she was not medically cleared for the action. And the segment was limited to her getting spat by green mist. You can check the tweet below.
