Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up

Welcome to latest edition of the Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up, which details everything in women’s wrestling in the past week, beginning with Monday’s Raw and ending with WrestleMania!Eva-Marie-Entrance

Brie Bella’s team got their fifth member on Raw, and it was none other than NXT’s evil Red Queen, Eva Marie. After Emma defeated Paige and a melee ensued, Eva Marie shockingly appeared and took out Lana, and celebrated with her Total Divas castmates. I myself expected Bayley to be the fifth member, but Eva Marie was fitting considering the TD connection. Even so, it’s a very quick return to the main roster for Eva Marie, plus she’s a proverbial she-wolf amongst the proverbial lambs. More on this later.

Impact Wrestling featured a battle between the Beautiful People, as Velvet Sky and Madison Rayne faced each other in what Gail Kim considered a #1 Contender’s Match, which was won by Madison. I find this whole thing interesting. A week prior, we saw the Dollhouse compete against each other in a #1 Contender’s match cooked up by Maria, which Jade won. Now, I would think that we would see Jade and Madison face off to determine the undisputed #1 Contender most likely on tomorrow’s Impact.

TayaLuchaUndergroundLucha Underground featured Taya in action with her partner Johnny Mundo. I swear, the more I see Taya, the more I love her. I am so happy that she is on my TV screen competing! All I’ve gone by until a month or so ago is what I’ve read about her, and it was nothing but good things, of course, but I now get to watch her on TV, that is epic! Speaking of epic, Mariposa and Sexy Star finally faced each other, with the former emerging victorious. I am still hoping to see more women on Lucha Underground, as well as a title to call their own. We also saw Ivelisse get her hands on Catrina finally, so it was a spectacular night!

As expected, Asuka walked out of Dallas as the NXT Women’s Champion at Takeover this past Friday. Asuka defeated Bayley in a spectacular match that ended with the fierce challenger putting Bayley to sleep to win the title. Also, Jacqueline was inducted into the Hall of Fame the following evening by the Dudley Boyz, but of course, it was all about WrestleMania.

The new WWE Women's Championship

The new WWE Women’s Championship

Last night’s WrestleMania saw the end of the Divas Championship as well as the “Diva” label in WWE, as WWE Hall of Famer Lita presented the brand new WWE Women’s Championship. As the photo shows, it closely resembles the WWE World Heavyweight Championship; I like to call it the World Title’s little sister. This was the very title that Charlotte, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch competed for, as Charlotte came out with the now-retired Divas Championship, and walked out with the new belt after she defeated Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch, with Ric Flair’s interference, of course.

Before the title bout, the Total Divas took the spotlight at the pre-show, as they defeated Team Lana in five-on-five action. I, and many others, expected the evil Eva Marie to turn against her partners, but while she didn’t, she still showed off her villainous side and did it to perfection at the event. Lana was impressive in her long awaited in-ring debut, but the moment of the match came after it ended, as Nikki Bella came out and celebrated with sister Brie and the rest of the Total Divas. It was such an emotional moment, especially with Brie’s upcoming retirement and Nikki’s injuries.

Last but not least, I have to mention Stephanie McMahon! It looks like Stephanie standing out with sexy outfits at WrestleMania has become a tradition of sorts, beginning with WrestleMania X8, when she, ironically, accompanied Chris Jericho against Triple H. Stephanie showed out at WrestleMania 30 two years ago, but last night was her most eye-popping moment, as she emerged with HHH’s “King of Kings” skeleton-like helmet (an absolute switch), and gave her villainous introduction. It was epic, but it was missing one thing:  Stephanie should have cackled.

A new week begins with the big post-Mania Raw TONIGHT! It would be something if Sasha Banks beats Charlotte for the Women’s Championship tonight; it’s post-Mania Raw, anything is possible! Until next week!
