WOL: The championship curse in WWE

The Saturday edition of Wrestling Observer Live is back.

New WWE Women's tag team champions were crowned on SmackDown Friday in Bayley and Sasha Banks. While Bayley is a dominant singles champion and there are many stories to tell with she and Banks as tag champions, she's the exception when it comes to titleholders in WWE.

More often than not, WWE champions lose non-title matches and momentum to set up hotter challengers. Then, the challenger wins the title only to start losing matches and fan interest in an endless cycle. Instead of boosting a career, winning a title in WWE is often one of the worst things that can happen to a talent.

Plus, the John Hughes movies parallels continued Friday as Braun Strowman is Home Alone with Miz and Morrison. Plus, I talk about Sunday's NXT TakeOver: In Your House, Cody and blood, and what to do about the WWE Network.
