Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up

Welcome to the latest edition of the Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up, which recaps everything in women’s wrestling from the past week, beginning with Monday’s Raw.

We saw a very heated war of words between Ronda Rousey and the Bellas, which ended with Ronda fighting off the Bellas’ private security while the twins ran off. Before this, Tamina Snuka made her return to Raw, as she and Dana Brooke were defeated by Ember Moon and Nia Jax. During the match, it was announced that the four women, among many others, would be featured in a battle royal at Evolution, with the winner receiving a future championship opportunity. The match’s aftermath saw a confrontation between Tamina and real-life cousin Nia Jax, with Ember and Tamina actually teaming up to toss Nia over the top rope. Ember attempted to do the same to Tamina, but Dana tossed out both women. We also saw a match between Natalya and Ruby Riott end in a brawl that included the rest of the Squad and a pair of Horsewomen (Bayley and Sasha Banks), and another confrontation between the Alexa/Mickie duo and Trish & Lita.

SmackDown 1000 took place the next night, and there was no women’s action, other than Charlotte and Becky Lynch brawling after the latter’s appearance on The Cutting Edge. The next day was the premiere of NXT UK, and that featured some women’s action:  Toni Storm defeating Nina Samuels in singles action. On NXT, Nikki Cross’ match against Bianca BelAir was interrupted by the returning Aleister Black, who received the name of his attacker, and Lucha Underground saw Reklusa defeated by Pentagon Dark, while Taya went after Matanza. Regarding the Mae Young Classic, Io Shirai, Toni Storm, Rhea Ripley, and Meiko Satomura all advanced to the tournament’s Final Four.Image result for jordynne grace wwe

Impact saw Taya victorious over Katarina, but after her match, she had some biting words for Tessa Blanchard regarding her title contest at Bound For Glory, stating that she no longer respects Tessa. Later on, Allie defeated Alisha Edwards in singles action, but the match saw the darkness within Allie begin to take over, as she viciously assaulted Alisha during and after her match, with Allie suddenly becoming apologetic afterwards while a shocked Kiera Hogan tended to Alisha.

Impact promoted the upcoming debut of a new Knockout without revealing her identity, but those of us who read the dirt sheets know who it is: Jordynne Grace. Some info on Jordynne:  she’s 22 years of age, but she has already had a few years of wrestling under her belt. She is only 5’1″, but she has a muscular frame and acts as a powerhouse character, regardless of where she’s heroic or villainous. Jordynne has competed as a villainess at Women Superstars Uncensored, where she captured the Spirit Championship from Kiera Hogan. WWE fans caught a glimpse of Jordynne when she appeared backstage during the Great Balls of Fire PPV in 2017. Sadly, Jordynne revealed on Twitter that she is rehabbing an injured ankle, but she did participate in the Impact tapings before her injury befell her.

I had a feeling that Evolution would feature a Battle Royal. However, I thought that the Raw women would have their matches, the SD women would have their separate matches, and the BR would feature a number of NXT and NXT UK women, some eliminated MYC women, and some alums. Instead, the BR features the rest of SD’s women, as well as Raw representatives, Alicia Fox, Dana Brooke, Nia Jax, Tamina, and Ember Moon. It was also announced that a number of alums and Hall of Famers would be in the Battle Royal, including Molly Holly, Michelle McCool, and Hall of Famers Ivory and Alundra Blayze. It was reported that a number of SD women are not happy with being relegated to the Battle Royal, and I can’t say I blame them. With the inevitable addition of a match pitting Nattie, Sasha Banks, and Bayley against the Riott Squad, we could see three matches from the Raw side, while SD only has the title match.

A new week begins with the final countdown to Evolution, which will include the semifinals of the Mae Young Classic! Until next week!
