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.

Before Raw aired, it was announced that Nia Jax would defend the Raw Women’s Championship at Money In The Bank against none other than Ronda Rousey, with the match and challenge being made during an NBC Upfront event in NYC. Meanwhile, on the program, Sasha Banks, Natalya, and Ember Moon were victorious over The Riott Squad, while Alexa Bliss defeated Bayley and Mickie James to qualify for the Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match, joining Ember Moon and Charlotte Flair in the match. Speaking of qualifiers, Becky Lynch defeated Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose to join the fray in that match, but before that took place, Carmella’s “Royal Mellabration” was interrupted by General Manager Paige, making her first appearance in her home country as GM. Paige challenged Carmella’s claim that she’s better than everyone by announcing that her title defense at the MITB PPV will be against Asuka.

On NXT, Lacey Evans defeated former Impact Wrestling Knockout Brandi Lauren, and was later taken down by Kairi Sane, who Lacey had been targeting for weeks. Also, Candice LeRae confronted Tommasso Ciampa, and Nikki Storm attempted to convince Dakota Kai to stand up to Shayna Baszler. On the following evening’s Impact program,Tessa Blanchard picked up her first victory for the promotion by defeating Kiera Hogan; however, victory wasn’t enough for Tessa, as she attacked Kiera after her match. Madison Rayne left her position on commentary to fend off Tessa, and as a result, it was announced that Tessa and Madison will face each other at Under Pressure, a special edition of Impact that will air on May 31. That edition will also see Allie defend the Knockouts Championship against Su Yung, who held a “funeral” of sorts for Rosemary.

Let’s get to the WWE Women’s Championship matches that have outraged a lot of fans. The Raw match was made despite Ronda competing in only one match on a big forum (not counting the live event matches she’s competed in recently); yes, Ronda performed well and impressed many, but still, it was one match. I was expecting a long build that would lead to a title opportunity and run next year, but they are really rushing this. As for the SD match, it seems like WWE is rushing Asuka to the title, as when the PPV hits, Carmella’s reign as champion will have only lasted two months. As for possible results, the Raw match has two: either Ronda wins outright (the most likely result) or interference throws it out, as Ronda losing outright wouldn’t be logical given what a big deal she is. Regarding the SD match, Asuka is definitely winning. They will not have Asuka lose two PPV matches in a row after that long unbeaten streak; even a DQ or countout finish one way or the other wouldn’t make sense.

A new week begins with more qualifying matches for Women’s MITB. Though Raw’s matches have yet to be announced, it was announced earlier that Sonya Deville another chance to qualify, as she’ll face off against Naomi, while Lana will face Billie Kay in another match. Also, Impact will continue the build up to Under Pressure. Until next week!
