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, which actually began with the UK Championship Tournament.

The WWE Network uploaded the two night United Kingdom event, which consisted of the #1 Contender’s tournament that Monday and the UK Championship match that Tuesday. Monday’s show included some women’s action, as Toni Storm defeated Killer Kelly and Isla Dawn to earn an opportunity at the NXT Women’s Championship the next night. On Raw that evening, Kurt Angle gave Bayley and Sasha Banks one last chance to co-exist, as he put them with Ember Moon in a match against The Riott Squad. Not only did the Riott Squad win, but Bayley physically unloaded on Sasha afterwards, a furious assault from someone who was often cheerful and upbeat. Later on, Alexa Bliss was in action against Natalya, and the champion ended up tapping out to the Queen of Harts.Image result for lufisto wrestler

Toni Storm fell short in her title opportunity against Shayna Baszler, and before that, Charlie Morgan defeated Killer Kelly via a roll-up. Later that evening on SmackDown, Becky Lynch continued her redemptive road by defeating Sonya Deville, despite Mandy Rose’s interference. On NXT, Candice LeRae picked up a victory against Lacey Evans, and that evening’s edition of Lucha Underground saw Ivelisse get involved during Grave Consequences between Mil Muertes, Jeremiah Crane, and Fenix, doing so by going after Crane with a hammer as payback for what Crane did to her after Ivelisse’s victory over Catrina. Thursday’s Impact featured a rematch between Madison Rayne and Tessa Blanchard, with Madison winning and being surrounded by Su Yung and her undead brides, only for Allie to save Madison.

After over 500 days, LuFisto surrendered the SHINE Championship this past week. LuFisto was set to defend the title against Kimber Lee in a No DQ rematch from SHINE 50. The rematch was set to take place at SHINE 52 on July 20, with the event marking Shine Wrestling’s sixth anniversary, but LuFisto is scheduled to undergo surgery on July 19, and gave an impassioned post on Facebook regarding her surgery, her road to recovery, and the fact that the title deserves to be defended. LuFisto has been part of Shine since February 2013, when she debuted at SHINE 7 in a loss to Ivelisse. After three years as a fan favorite, LuFisto turned heel in September 2016 and became part of a villainous faction known as C4, which actually disbanded just months later. She went on to capture the SHINE Championship at SHINE 40 last January, and held the title for nearly a year and a half, with her last successful defense being against Su Yung on June 9 of this year. A new SHINE Champion will be crowned at SHINE 52, but no word on what type match will take place, or who will actually fight for the title.

So Bayley turned heel this past Monday, or did she? Fans were left with the impression that the longtime white-meat babyface became villainous with her assault towards Sasha, though it hasn’t really been confirmed. As we also saw on Raw and on YouTube, the Bayley/Sasha saga will continue even further, as Kurt Angle has ordered both women to undergo counseling, whatever that is. This may end up killing the Bayley heel turn, but only time will tell if that’s the case. On another note, yet another wrestling wedding took place, as WWE’s current Cruiserweight Champion, Cedric Alexander tied the knot with indy sensation Aerial Monroe. Monroe has competed for promotions such as Queens of Combat and Shine Wrestling, being part of a babyface group known as the Sexy Young Caramels in the latter faction.

A new week begins with the countdown to Extreme Rules for WWE, and Slammiversary for Impact Wrestling. Until next week!
