Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up

Welcome to the 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 No Mercy.WWE Photo

Raw took place in San Jose, so for those of you expecting You-Know-Who to return, you got it! On the program, Nia Jax defeated Alexa Bliss in non-title action, and we saw a confrontation between those two and Sasha Banks. At that moment, Bayley returned from injury and got involved in the brawl, which ended with Bayley and Sasha standing tall! Later in the program, Bayley was added to the Women’s Championship contest, making it a five way at No Mercy. As for Emma, she was still in her native Australia following WWE’s latest trip to the Land Down Under.

Charlotte made her first appearance on SmackDown in weeks, as she thanked the WWE Universe for supporting her during the hospitalization of Ric Flair. Of course, that didn’t deter Natalya from interrupting and making it all about her, which led to Charlotte challenging Nattie for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Naomi, Tamina (with Lana), and Becky Lynch all threw themselves in the mix, and that prompted Daniel Bryan to put the potential challengers in a #1 Contender’s contest. The match main evented SmackDown and was won by Charlotte, who pinned Tamina for the victory. Charlotte’s championship shot will come at Hell In A Cell on October 8.

NXT featured a battle between a pair of Mae Young Classic combatants, as Bianca BelAir defeated Lacey Evans; all the while another MYC participant, Dakota Kai, threw her name into the NXT Women’s Championship mix, as did Sonya Deville. Lucha Underground featured Melissa Santos’ in-ring debut, as she and Fenix were defeated by Marty the Moth and Mariposa, while Impact featured Taya Valkyrie defeating Ava Storie, as well as a brawl between six Knockouts.

Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss is set to defend the gold in a Fatal 5-Way Match.

The No Mercy PPV saw Alexa Bliss successfully defend the Raw Women’s Championship in the five-way match when she pinned Bayley, which was a bad move. Bayley was supposed to have a comeback story, but instead she gets pinned in her first match back, on PPV no less. For the entire week, we saw promos for Asuka’s upcoming debut on the Raw brand, and the PPV officially confirmed that Asuka’s Raw debut will come at the TLC event on October 22.

Happy birthday this past Tuesday to Eva Marie, who turned 33! Eva Marie’s WWE career began in 2013, when she was also announced as part of the cast of Total Divas. On-screen, Eva Marie portrayed a villainous henchwoman for the Bella Twins for the first few months, until all three became babyfaces due to AJ Lee’s promo. She continued working the main roster until 2014, when she began training to improve her in-ring skills. Eva Marie returned on NXT, portraying a villainess once again with a gimmick that included donning a red robe and referring to herself as the “Red Queen.” She racked up wins against various women and later formed an alliance with the debuting Nia Jax in the process, before returning to the main roster last year and teaming with her fellow Total Divas at WrestleMania. Eva Marie was drafted to the SmackDown brand in the returning brand split, and she was given a new gimmick which included a voiceover promo and also had her backing out of competing. She received a 30-day Wellness Policy suspension last summer, but even after it ended, she didn’t return to WWE TV and finally left last month. Outside of WWE, Eva Marie filmed movies, one of them being Inconceivable, which starred Nicolas Cage and Gina Gershon.

Kaitlyn returned to a wrestling ring this weekend, training at the Main Event Training Center in Fort Lauderdale. Her last wrestling match came on January 8, 2014, when she was defeated by AJ Lee on Main Event before retiring. Kaitlyn competed in WWE for three and a half years, which included a five month Divas Championship reign in 2013. In the years that have passed since leaving WWE, Kaitlyn has focused on her clothing line, Celestial Bodiez, but after reading that news, I do hope she returns to wrestling; in the indies, Impact, or even back in WWE. It still bothers me that Kaitlyn never had a proper run as a heel; she would have made an excellent villainess if given the chance. I could definitely see Kaitlyn as a returning heel on NXT; most likely aligned with Sonya Deville and Bianca BelAir.

A new week begins with the fallout from No Mercy, and will featured SD’s build to Hell In A Cell! Ultima Lucha begins this Wednesday, and Victory Road takes place on Thursday! Until next week!
