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 Super Show-Down in Australia.

Ronda Rousey defeated Ruby Riott just days away from the big three-on-three match at SSD, and later in the program, Bayley defeated Alicia Fox in singles action, just one day away from their participation in the latest edition of the Mixed Match Challenge. Speaking of MMC connections, the following night’s SmackDown saw R-Truth and Carmella defeat Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega, and later on, Asuka defeated Peyton Royce one-on-one, with SmackDown later ending with Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch going at it just days before their title encounter at SSD. The latest edition of the MMC saw Bayley and Finn Balor defeat Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox, and in the SD based match, Jimmy Uso and Naomi defeated Rusev and Lana.

On NXT, Lacey Evans defeated Candice LeRae in a grudge match stemming from their confrontation on the previous week. Lucha Underground saw Reclusa introduced as Marty the Moth’s new associate, and Marty later defeated his sister, Mariposa, in a brutal match for his first successful defense of the Lucha Underground Championship. Regarding the Mae Young Classic, the second round got underway, and the first batch of matches saw Toni Storm, Rhea Ripley, Lacey Lane, and Meiko Satomura all win and advance to the quarterfinals. On the following evening’s Impact, Su Yung defeated Kiera Hogan, who ended up placed in a coffin by the Undead Bride, much to Allie’s horror.

Super Show-Down featured a triple helping of women’s action, emanating from Melbourne, Australia. First off, the SmackDown Women’s Championship contest between Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch ended with the villainous Lass Kicker striking her opponent with the title while she was placed in the Figure Eight, resulting in a DQ finish. Becky attacked Charlotte after the match ended, and due to the events, it was announced that Becky and Charlotte will face each other in another title rematch on SmackDown this Tuesday, with the added stipulation that Becky can lose the championship via DQ. Later on, The IIconics competed in front of their home fans and spoke in heartfelt fashion about being back in Australia, before enjoying an epic victory over Asuka and Naomi. The last bit of women’s action featured Ronda Rousey and The Bella Twins emerging victorious over The Riott Squad, despite a debate between Ronda and Nikki regarding who would start the match.

Evolution is three weeks away and among the matches that were promoted for the event on October 28 was Ronda Rousey’s defense of the Raw Women’s Championship, though her opponent was not announced. This writer may sound like a broken record, but Nikki Bella has been rumored to be Ronda’s challenger for the title. The heavy speculation surrounding the rumor has Nikki turning heel to build up their match, and their debate in the beginning of the three-on-three may have possibly planted the seeds for their feud to begin. The turn didn’t happen at the event, but chances are, Monday’s Raw should see more seeds planted, or maybe we’ll see Nikki flat out attack Ronda and challenge her at Evolution.

Staying on Evolution, it was announced earlier this week that Michelle McCool and Torrie Wilson will appear at next Tuesday’s SmackDown 1000, as well as Evolution. Both women are blue brand staples; Torrie Wilson spent most of her long WWE tenure as part of SmackDown’s roster, while Michelle McCool had her biggest moments as part of the blue brand, including becoming WWE’s first ever Divas Champion. Michelle being announced for Evolution has hopes that LayCool will appear and probably face the IIConics, though it doesn’t look like Layla will return at the event. No word on what Michelle and Torrie will be doing at Evolution, and regarding SD 1000, Vickie Guerrero was also announced for next week’s show. Vickie made waves for years as the villainous General Manager of SmackDown, which also included a storyline relationship with Edge and various feuds with The Undertaker.

A new week begins with the fallout from SSD on Raw and SmackDown, and will end with Bound For Glory in NYC! Until next week!
