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.

Raw featured Bayley and Sasha Banks attending their counseling sessions, which included the expected return of Dr. Shelby; who successfully brought Team Hell No together. Meanwhile, in the ring, Nia Jax was set to face off against Mickie James, but before the match, Nia announced an important update to her title rematch against Alexa Bliss:  it is now an Extreme Rules match at the PPV under the same name. It was announced before hand that Ronda Rousey will appear at Extreme Rules, as her suspension was only from Raw, but not from PPVs. Nia defeated Mickie thanks to Natalya keeping Bliss at bay.

On SmackDown, Asuka’s match against James Ellsworth ended in a double countout, but Carmella delivered the last shot afterwards. Later on, Becky defeated Peyton Royce in singles action, continuing her winning ways in her climb back to the title picture. The next night’s NXT saw Dakota Kai victorious over Santana Garrett, while Shayna Baszler stated that there’s no one in the Women’s Division who could end her title reign. Lucha Underground saw Johnny Mundo and Taya victorious over Kobra Moon and Daga, only for Worldwide Underground to be taken down by the Dragon Tribe afterwards. On Impact, Allie and Madison Rayne defeated Su Yung and one of her undead brides, despite Tessa Blanchard’s evil attempt to sabotage Madison and Allie.

As stated in last week’s edition, LuFisto vacated the SHINE Championship due to the fact that she would be undergoing surgery next Thursday, one day before a scheduled title defense against Kimber Lee at SHINE 52. Shine Wrestling announced that a new champion will be crowned in an eight-woman one night tournament set to take place at SHINE 53, with the eight combatants being announced at next Friday’s SHINE 52 in Ybor City. SHINE 53 will take place on September 8 in Queens. Shine Wrestling is familiar with tournaments, as they have crowned all of their inaugural champions in such a fashion, most recently the SHINE Nova Championship tournament last year, which was won by Priscilla Kelly.

Alicia Fox returned to the ring this weekend at a live event in Philadelphia, doing so on the losing end of a six-woman tag team bout. Alicia was aligned with Riott Squad members Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan against Bayley, Ember Moon, and Natalya, with the role contrasting her appearance on Raw two weeks prior, where she was shown hugging Bayley backstage. As for why Alicia was with the Riott Squad, it was due to the fact that Ruby Riott suffered a knee sprain recently, and it was stated that she would be sidelined possibly for weeks. This was why she wasn’t on Raw as Liv Morgan lost to Ember Moon, with Sarah Logan in the former’s corner.

A new week begins with the final countdown to Extreme Rules in Pittsburgh, as well as more from NXT, Lucha Underground, and Impact! Until next week!
