Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up

Welcome to the latest edition of the Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up, which covers everything in women’s wrestling in the past week, beginning with Monday’s Raw.

BrieVScharlotteA pretty awesome week for the Divas on Raw, mainly Brie Bella, as she defeated Divas Champion Charlotte in a non-title match, despite Ric Flair’s attempted interference. This was the first setback for Charlotte since her villainous turn last month, and regarding Brie’s win, the story is that we could see Charlotte vs Brie at Fastlane. The reasoning for this is to push Brie as a sympathetic figure, fighting for her husband, Daniel Bryan, and her sister, Nikki Bella.

TeamBadMeanwhile, Team BAD is officially done, as Sasha Banks parted ways with the group amicably. Well, Sasha was amicable. Naomi and Tamina, not so much. After Sasha actually stopped her former co-horts from getting involved in her match against Becky Lynch, the pair decided to assault her. In what was clearly a show of solidarity to her fellow NXT co-hort, Becky fought off Naomi and Tamina with Sasha, so at the moment, it appears that an alliance has formed between the two. This should be interesting.

Lilian Garcia gained attention on Raw, and again, it wasn’t for good reasons. The longtime ring announcer slipped up on Monday when she referred to The Usos as Grammy Award Winners. Despite serving as a ring announcer for WWE since 1999, Lilian has been quite prone to error, and unlike her last blunders, this one got a lot of attention, and was even replayed on Raw! I honestly think that WWE needs to use this to somehow turn Lilian heel; maybe make her a jealous villainess and put her in a feud between fellow ring announcer Eden Stiles. It could see Lilian phased out on Raw and PPVs due to her mistakes and replaced by Eden, only for the evil Lilian to become upset and take it out on Eden. Believe it or not, we have seen a ring announcer feud in the past; back in 2002 between Lilian and WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel. Lilian once said back in 2009 that she would like to portray a heel in WWE; this could be the opportunity.

Impact saw no Knockouts match, but there were plenty of fireworks between the women. We saw Raquel make an appearance and continue to flirt with Lashley, Rosemary appeared with The Decay, Reby Sky had harsh words for her brother-in-law, Jeff Hardy, but the biggest moment came from fellow ex-Divas turned Knockouts Gail Kim and Maria Kanellis. Maria stated that the Knockouts Division needed saving, and she could be its leader, which prompted the Knockouts Champion to engage in a confrontation with the self-proclaimed First Lady of Wrestling. A Gail/Maria feud in TNA; this should be good!

Asuka2NXT was mainly featured a pair of Divas matches, first with Emma losing to Carmella, followed by the main attraction for fans:  Santana Garrett appearing on the program and jobbing to Asuka. As for Lucha Underground, a promo aired for the upcoming debut of Kobra Moon, a masked female competitor, and speaking of which, Sexy Star was shown for the first time this season, as she was still held captive by Marty the Moth.

Regarding SmackDown, Becky and Sasha talked about what happened on Monday, and despite arguing, it seems like they did come together and decided to take on Tamina and Naomi, with the match rumored to happen on Raw Monday night. Also, Charlotte rebounded from Monday and defeated Alicia Fox later in the evening.

A new week begins tomorrow, and it will include Bayley and Carmella facing each other for the NXT Women’s Championship. The indy circuit will be in the spotlight this Saturday, as Women Superstars Uncensored will celebrate their ninth anniversary! Until next week!
