The Art in Lighting (Week 8)

March 13, 2018

Wrestling is a very dramatic type of entertainment. It always has a lot going on and sometimes that makes it hard to leave a massive impact on the fans. Every now and then you get a moment during a show that everyone talks about, everyone is going nuts on Twitter for. This week, it was a great moment in WWE's Pay-Per-View, Fastlane.

 

Fans have been awaiting the decision of first-ever Women's Royal Rumble winner, Asuka, on which title she will challenge for at Wretlemania, and at Fastlane, fan were given an answer with this powerful image:

In that moment, the champion Charlotte is completely overtaken by the symbol of Asuka. Nothing about this lighting puts the champion in the dominant spot, but it doesn't make her look small. Instead, it makes the symbol the equal to the champion.

 

The thing about symbols is in wrestling they're meant to tell the fans how big the wrestler is. The weaker the symbol, the less you'll care. So if Asuka's symbol is as big as Charlotte in this picture, what will that say for their match?

 

I chose this picture because of the massive symbolism and the gorgeous lighting. This was taken right after Charlotte successfully defended her title and it was surprising to see her celebration cut off for this challenge. I look forward to the symbolism and lighting we get from this feud in the coming weeks.
