Women's Wrestling Weekly Recap & Review #337

Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, June 28, 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

Asuka & Naomi vs Eva Marie & Doudrop

The drizzling shits! There was absolutely nothing to enjoy about this so called contest.

Winner: Asuka & Naomi

Rating: 1.5/5

Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross vs Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler

The winners of this match would qualify for Money in the Bank, however, the focus appeared to be on Nikki Cross' new superhero persona. The match itself was as middling as you would expect, with Cross securing the pinfall victory with a rollup on Shayna Baszler. Not good, in all honesty.

Winner: Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Nyla Rose vs Delmi Exo

Squash City!

Winner: Nyla Rose

Rating: 2/5

Kris Statlander vs Renee Michelle

Squash City!

Winner: Kris Statlander

Rating: 2/5

Jade Cargill vs Robyn Renegade

Squash City!

Winner: Jade Cargill

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT

Zoey Stark & Io Shirai vs Aliyah & Jessi Kamea

As an NXT television match, this was not a bad effort at all. Although Aliyah does not show signs of being a household name, the improvement in her ring presence is steadily improving. Zoey Stark and Io Shirai worked well as a team, with all four women working well to put on an entertaining match. Shirai won the contest for her team with a Moonsault, reiterating how she still remains a clear and dangerous threat.

Winner: Zoey Stark & Io Shirai

Rating: 3/5

Franky Monet vs Elektra Lopez

Squash City!

Winner: Franky Monet

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark

Diamante vs Ashley D’Amboise

Squash City!

Winner: Diamante

Rating: 2/5

Abadon vs Ashley Vox

Squash City!

Winner: Abadon

Rating: 2/5

The Bunny vs Reka Tehaka

Squash City!

Winner: The Bunny

Rating: 2/5

AEW Saturday Night Dynamite

The Bunny vs Kris Statlander

This was a fine contest, featuring some of The Bunny's best work in recent weeks. Kris Statlander worked hard to bring the best out of The Bunny, playing the face in peril well. The finish of the match had Orange Cassidy neutralise the cheating element of The Bunny, allowing Statlander to hit the Big Bang Theory for the pinfall victory.

Winner: Kris Statlander

Rating: 2.5/5

Impact Wrestling

Rosemary vs Kiera Hogan

Rosemary had the majority of the control in this match, allowing her to come off as an extremely strong threat. Rosemary has had a few dominant weeks recently, which means that Kiera Hogan's loss does not really detract from her own momentum. Hogan came close to winning the match with a Roundhouse Kick, only for Rosemary to connect with an As Above So Below for the pinfall victory. Fun, if not a little brief.

Winner: Rosemary

Rating: 2.5/5

Deonna Purrazzo vs Susan

Deonna Purrazzo is now entering X-Pac territory in terms of fan indifference. The Knockout's Champion is unfortunately stinking up the joint, and this match was yet more evidence of the need to have someone new carry the belt. Purrazzo made Susan tap to an Armbar, but it was all about Kimber Lee being set up as her next challenger post match.

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo

Rating: 2.5/5

WWE NXT UK

Stevie Turner vs Laura di Matteo

Squash City!

Winner: Stevie Turner

Rating: 2/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Liv Morgan vs Carmella

If Liv Morgan was able to defeat Carmella, she would be added to the women's Money in the Bank match. I enjoyed this contest as both women seemed motivated, but it was Morgan who was able to secure the pinfall victory to underline her credentials. Overall, this was not a bad contest.

Winner: Liv Morgan

Rating: 2.5/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Zoey Stark & Io Shirai vs Aliyah & Jessi Kamea

With a very disappointing week of women's wrestling, this was the only real choice for Match of the Week.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Liv Morgan

Two wins in a row over Carmella suggests that Liv Morgan is about to receive a significant push, and to be honest, she has earned it!

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!
