Raw to Raw 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.

Last Monday’s Raw featured Alexa Bliss again attempting to humiliate Mickie James, only for the six time champion to again fight back and take down her upcoming PPV opponent. Speaking of opponents, Asuka needed one for TLC, and Kurt Angle decided to have the rest of Raw’s women compete in an elimination match for that honor. Surprisingly, Bayley was the second woman eliminated after Dana Brooke, leaving Alicia Fox, Emma, and Sasha Banks. In the end, Emma was victorious, and she’ll face Asuka at TLC next Sunday. On SmackDown. Charlotte and Natalya got physical backstage, and Becky Lynch picked up a huge victory over Carmella.

Wednesday’s NXT featured the first step to determining who will join Mae Young Classic winner Kairi Sane in the chase for the vacant NXT Women’s Championship at NXT Takeover next month. Nikki Storm, Peyton Royce, and Liv Morgan all faced each other in a Triple Threat Match, and during that match, Taynara Conti appeared with the Undisputed Era, who sent her to sabotage Nikki Storm during the match. Thanks to Conti’s interference, Nikki ended up pinned by Peyton Royce, who advances to Takeover. Later that evening, Sexy Star defeated Taya in a thrilling Last Luchadora Standing contest in Part III of Ultima Lucha Tres, but Taya would get the last laugh on Rosemary the next night on Impact, as she used Rosemary’s own mist against the Demon Assassin. This came after Gail Kim delivered a vicious slap to Taryn Terrell, and before Allie and Sienna were participants in a six person tag match, with Allie’s side winning.

Staying on the subject of Mae Young Classic competitors, it was announced this past weekend, that WWE officially signed Kavita Devi, who took part in the inaugural tournament this summer. Kavita made history as the first woman of Indian descent to compete in a WWE ring, and at the tournament, she was defeated in the first round by Dakota Kai. Kavita was one of my faves from the tournament; she reminded me a lot of one of my faves from the independent scene: Queen Maya. In her match against Dakota, Kavita played the villainess role to perfection; displaying arrogance and nastiness to go with her massive power. A lot of us expect to see Kavita aligned with Jinder Mahal, but I myself am just waiting ever so patiently to see her on NXT TV.

This Monday on Raw Mickie James teamed with Bayley to take on Emma and Little Miss Bliss with Mickie picking up the win. Per usual, this makes their rivalry look better as they build James up, but it ultimately means that Bliss, who took the pin will more than likely retain her title this Sunday. But, in my opinion the other womens match was the more interesting. Alicia Fox took on Sasha Banks. This match has many different levels for me. First, as the announcers pointed out, Foxy has been in WWE for 10 years, is a former womens title holder and yet she is rarely used on WWE television with the exception of lately. Plus, in a move that reminds me of how Zack Rider forced WWE to notice him, Alicia Fox has been using social media to her advantage voicing her frustration earlier this month when she stated the fact that WWE had never sold a shirt with her likeness or character on it. Suddenly, earlier this week, there is 1 shirt for her available for purchase on WWE Shop now and she and Sasha Banks had a very physical match where Foxy gave Banks a real bloody nose with a vicious back elbow. But, Sasha did win the match with her submission, the bank statement. But that was not all. They also did a back stage segment where Foxy took her to task as well as going crazy on a referee. It was announced later in the broadcast that Alicia was fined an undisclosed amount of money for assaulting the referee. Those two incidents ultimately lead to a kickoff show match between the two ladies before TLC.

We also have a womens wrestling rumor to report on. According to multiple sources former TNA womens wrestler, Knockout Champion and current GFW creative partner as well as the wife of GFW announcer Josh Matthews was actually at the WWE performance center this past weekend. Yes we are talking about Madison Rayne. She replaced the departed Christy Hemme as head of creative for the Knockouts Division. But, with her husband working for GFW, I would think that would be a turn off for WWE as Matthews is also on the creative side with GFW. We will monitor this situation and see how things shake out.
