Women's Wrestling Weekly Recap & Review #336

Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, June 21, 2021

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

Nikki Cross vs Charlotte Flair

Countout. The most beloved of match finishes. This was just all kinds of idiotic, stupid, and pointless drivel.

Winner: Nikki Cross

Rating: 1.5/5

Piper Niven vs Naomi

Piper Niven smash! This was a delicious squash to introduce Niven to the WWE universe. It's just a shame she has the association with Eva Marie and no discernable character.

Winner: Piper Niven

Rating: 2.5/5

Asuka vs Rhea Ripley

A standard match to drive home how talented both women are, except there wasn't much fire to this.

Winner: Rhea Ripley

Rating: 2.5/5

Alexa Bliss vs Nia Jax

Bullshit! Complete and utter bullshit!

Winner: Alexa Bliss (via DQ)

Rating: 1/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Nyla Rose vs Megan Bayne

Squash City!

Winner: Nyla Rose

Rating: 2/5

Julia Hart vs Dani Jordyn

I cannot get over just how green Julie Hart looked in this match. Not just green, but potentially dangerous.

Winner: Julia Hart

Rating: 1/5

WWE NXT

Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez vs Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter

This was a standard contest designed to make Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez look good, which is something I can certainly get on board with. Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter worked hard, but they were no match for perhaps the most dangerous team in NXT.

Winner: Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez

Rating: 2.5/5

AEW Dark

Nyla Rose vs. Charlotte Renegade

Squash City!

Winner: Nyla Rose

Rating: 2/5

Valentina Rossi vs Kilynn King

Whilst not a complete squash, Kilynn King was in no mood to lose, hitting a Kingdom Falls for the pinfall victory.

Winner: Kilynn King

Rating: 2/5

Willow Nightingale vs Tay Conti

Squash City!

Winner: Tay Conti

Rating: 2.5/5

AEW Friday Night Dynamite

Penelope Ford vs Julia Hart

Awful. Just awful. This should have taken place on Elevation, not Dynamite!

Winner: Penelope Ford

Rating: 1/5

Impact Wrestling

Tenille Dashwood vs Rachael Ellering

Although Tenille Dashwood won via a rollup, this was exactly the victory she needed. By winning in such an industrious manner, she can be reasonably confident about working her way towards the Knockout's Championship.

Winner: Tenille Dashwood

Rating: 2.5/5

WWE NXT UK

There were no women's matches this week.

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

There were no women's matches this week.

WWE Hell in a Cell 2021

Mandy Rose vs Natalya

The very definition of kick off show mediocre. Not only that, what does Mandy Rose do now she has been defeated by the apparent bad guy of the storyline?

Winner: Natalya

Rating: 2/5

Bianca Belair vs Bayley

I had very low expectations for this match, but I was pleasantly surprised to see both women put on a strong match. Whilst the Hell in a Cell stipulation never came into play effectively, there was a brutal element to their match, with Bianca Belair hitting a stunning KOD onto a ladder for the victory. Overall, this was good viewing.

Winner: Bianca Belair

Rating: 3.5/5

Rhea Ripley vs Charlotte Flair

This match never really got going, which is probably due to the fact that the storyline just does not make any sense. Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair both straddle the line between heel and face, but don't really make either their own. A shitty disqualification gave Flair the victory, which means we will have this feud continue. Great!

Winner: Charlotte Flair (via DQ)

Rating: 2/5

Alexa Bliss vs Shayna Baszler

This feud, if you can even call it that, continues to plumb new depths. Nothing about this was strong, with Reginald once again featuring in Grade A Wrestle Crap.

Winner: Alexa Bliss

Rating: 1/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Bianca Belair vs Bayley

This may not have been up there with the elite Hell in a Cell matches, but it was still a fun and entertaining contest.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Bianca Belair

Successfully retaining the SmackDown Women's Championship inside Hell in a Cell is a momentous achievement to be proud of.
