Women's Wrestling Weekly Recap & Review #267

Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, February 24, 2020
Welcome to another edition of WOMEN'S WRESTLING WEEKLY—a rundown of the events which have transpired in the world of women's professional wrestling over the past several days not just with the Superstars on WWE programming, but with Impact Wrestling's Knockouts, ROH's Women of Honor, and even a glimpse at the women on the independent circuit.

WWE Monday Night Raw

Natalya vs Kairi Sane

This was your average Natalya match, however the inclusion of Kairi Sane made the contest feel more entertaining. Prior to the match, Asuka made it her business to run Natalya down and explain how she would be winning the women’s elimination chamber match, therefore moving onto a Raw Women’s Championship match with Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 36.

The match itself was rather even, with Natalya looking stronger than she has for a while. This was simply due to the great effort from Sane in making Natalya look good, which extended to the match finish as Natalya lost by countout.

This was a good match, and one which subtlety hinted at how much of a dark horse Natalya may be in the women’s elimination chamber match.

Winner: Kairi Sane (Via Countout)
Rating: 3/5


WWE SmackDown

Naomi vs Carmella

This match would determine the number 1 contender to Bayley’s SmackDown Women’s Championship, with the match scheduled to take place at Super Showdown.

Surprisingly, this was a rather entertaining and competitive match, with both Naomi and Carmella looking strong. Carmella thought she had the match won with a Superkick, only for Naomi to kick out and connect with a Split Legged Moonsault for the pinfall victory.

This was an entertaining match, with Naomi’s Split Legged Moonsault used to finish the match instead of a Rear View, perhaps hinting at how little that move would be appreciated in Saudi Arabia.

Winner: Naomi
Rating: 3/5


WWE NXT

Kayden Carter vs Chelsea Green

This was a poor match to showcase on NXT, however it was shameful it was used as a vehicle to allow Bianca Belair time to air her grievances with Charlotte Flair.

Chelsea Green may be in the midst of a push in NXT, but she cannot put on an entertaining match. Green defeated Kayden Carter with an Unprettier, which was apt considering how ugly the match had been.

I fully understand that Belair needs a platform to prove she deserves a shot at Flair, however this was not the time or place for it, as it only served to make a bad match even worse.

Winner: Chelsea Green
Rating: 1/5


AEW Dynamite

Kris Statlander vs Shanna

Kris Statlander has been an unmitigated success during her brief tenure in AEW, and this week she put on another great match.

Shanna intended on taking the fight to Statlander, and this is exactly what she did. The match was fairly even, with both wrestlers afforded time to show what they can do. Statlander’s strength proved too much however, hitting Big Bang Theory for the pinfall victory after a great finishing sequence.

This was a great match, with Statlander continuing to impress. Shanna looked good too, and hopefully she will have further opportunities to compete on Dynamite.

Winner: Kris Statlander
Rating: 2.5/5


Impact Wrestling

Madison Rayne vs Mazzerati

Simply put, this match was ugly. Good Ol’ JR would have called this bowling shoe ugly, and unfortunately for Impact fans, there was nothing to like about the action on offer.

Madison Rayne lumbered around the ring with no purpose, whilst Mazzerati looked woefully out of her depth. After what felt like an eternity of botches and poorly executed moves, Rayne hit a Cross Rayne for the pinfall victory.

Please do not go out of your way to watch this match. After Jordynne Grace won the Knockout’s Championship last week, Impact scored an own goal here by showcasing the same insipid wrestling they put on in 2019.

Winner: Madison Rayne
Rating: 1/5


MATCH OF THE WEEK:
Naomi vs Carmella

This was a surprisingly compelling match, with the match building perfectly to it's finish. Yes, it wasn't perfect, but it was the best match on offer this week.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:
Naomi

Naomi returns to the SmackDown Women's Championship picture with a strong victory over Carmella, and hopefully she can take her momentum into Super Showdown to dethrone Bayley.

So there you have it, the breakdown for the week in women's wrestling. What were some of your favorite and least favorite moments from these women? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
