Dana Brooke has the potential to be one of WWE’s top female stars, especially after spending most of the year under the tutelage of WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte.
Recently, she’s been booked as Charlotte’s submissive sidekick more than a protégé. The storyline is obviously leading to a feud between Brooke and Charlotte, but it may be happening a lot sooner than people thought.
Charlotte will be defending the WWE Women’s Championship against Bayley and Sasha Banks in a Triple Threat Match this Sunday at Clash of Champions, but the real story is about Brooke.
WWE’s creative team has been using Bayley and The Boss to help push a feud between Brooke and Charlotte. According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, they are just pawns to get Brooke over as a major babyface.
“Bayley and Sasha are pretty much considered the minor characters in the Charlotte and Dana storyline, and they saw this as another idea where Dana would go in there, and say that because [Bayley and Sasha] both lost, then [Charlotte] shouldn’t have to defend the championship… and because Dana says that it screws it up, and now [Charlotte] has to defend against both of them instead of one of them, making it worse. So, it’s another layer of the Charlotte-Dana Brooke feud,” Meltzer said this week on Wrestling Observer Radio.
Meltzer added, “They think [Dana’s]’s gonna be this super babyface, and I don’t know where they’re seeing this.”
