Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up

Welcome to the latest edition of the Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up, which recaps everything in women’s wrestling in the past week, beginning with Monday’s Raw and ending with Hell In A Cell.

Fresh off the verbal confrontation on Raw, Mickie James was looking to get physical with Alexa Bliss, especially after the cracks on Mickie’s age continued. Instead, she ended up facing Nia Jax (while WWE makes us forget that Alexa and Nia were actually feuding), and ends up winning via DQ after Bliss gets involved. After Mickie takes out Bliss, she is encountered by Kurt Angle, who gives Mickie a Raw Women’s Championship opportunity against Bliss at TLC on October 22. Later on, Bayley and Sasha Banks team up again and win, this time against Emma and Alicia Fox.

SmackDown saw Natalya and Carmella victorious over the Charlotte and Becky Lynch, and on this past Wednesday’s NXT, a double dose of women’s action, beginning with Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross defeating Billie Kay and Peyton Royce. Kairi Sane, the inaugural Mae Young Classic winner, made her NXT TV debut and defeated Aliyah. Lucha Underground featured Part 2 of Ultima Lucha, which saw Ivelisse defeat Catrina, and Mariposa turn against Marty the Moth during and after his loss to Fenix, resulting in Fenix and Melissa Santos shaving his head. On Thursday’s Impact, a Knockouts Championship match was set for Bound For Glory: Sienna will defend against Gail Kim, Taryn Terrell, and Allie at the event on November 5.

The Hell In A Cell event featured Charlotte vying for the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Natalya, and as stated in the pre-show, Charlotte has a chance to become the first to have held the NXT Women’s Championship, the now-defunct Divas Championship, and both Raw and SD Women’s Titles at least once. Natalya, who also made history for breaking Trish Stratus’ PPV match record, prevented Charlotte from doing so, as she intentionally got herself disqualified by using a steel chair. Clearly this thing isn’t over.

Natalya is disqualified after savagely attacking Charlotte with a steel chair, but is still the SmackDown Women's Champion.

The Bayley/Sasha team-ups have been interesting as of late; it has me wondering if this is the moment that they’ll finally go through with the Sasha heel turn that had been rumored and planned for about seven months. If WWE is going though with Horsewomen vs Horsewomen at (most likely) Survivor Series, then we may have to wait on that. Charlotte’s face turn after WrestleMania puts all four WWE Horsewomen on the side of good for the first time ever, and while the UFC Horsewomen aren’t established heels (though it may seem like they are), WWE wants to keep their own quartet as babyfaces for the time being.

A pair of former Mae Young Classic combatants made the news, as Serena Deeb visited the WWE Performance Center, mainly to mentor the up and comers. Serena participated in the tournament this summer, defeating Vanessa Borne in the first round before she was eliminated by Piper Niven. On the flipside, it was reported that Impact may be interested in indy sensation Tessa Blanchard, who has competed in several indy promotions and even appeared on WWE’s NXT a few times. Tessa’s MYC participation was brief; she was eliminated in the first round by eventual tournament winner Kairi Sane.

A new week beginst with Raw, and will include a Triple Threat pitting Liv Morgan, Nikki Cross, and Peyton Royce against each other, with the winner joining Kairi Sane in the NXT Women’s Championship contest at Takeover. Until next week!
