Asuka, Nia Jax, and Referee John Cone

This was a little moment from last night's Raw, but I thought it was really interesting.

Skip to 1:50 in the video below if you want to get right to the important stuff.



The way it was executed was pretty slick, and I loved the fact that it played off the idea that the referee can use some discretion when it comes to calling for a DQ.

Being a little vindictive about it works as well in that unlike an MLB umpire who thinks people paid to see them, you felt like Nia deserved it.

While I don't necessarily care for the idea that Nia needed to be protected here, and I also don't think it made up for the sorry finish at Backlash...I enjoyed this.
