Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, October 4, 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

Charlotte Flair vs Doudrop

Squash City! Which is a crying shame, as Doudrop deserves much better than this.

Winner: Charlotte Flair

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Thunder Rosa vs Kayla Sparks

Squash City!

Winner: Thunder Rosa

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT

B-Fab vs Elektra Lopez

Meh. This was essentially two green wrestlers struggling to put on a captivating contest, but then again, NXT 2.0 is more developmental focused than ever.

Winner: Elektra Lopez

Rating: 2/5

Io Shirai & Zoey Stark vs Toxic Attraction

Toxic Attraction may not have deserved to win here, but even in defeat, they brought a lot of fight to the contest. Both teams fought hard, but Io Shirai and Zoey Stark were just too strong for the fledgling team.

Winner: Io Shirai & Zoey Stark

Rating: 3/5

Raquel Gonzalez vs Franky Monet

These two just did not click at all, with a potential promotion to the main roster for Raquel Gonzalez the only reason people believed Franky Monet stood a chance. If victory for Gonzalez here means she is staying put, I hope her feud with Mandy Rose can capture lightning in a bottle.

Winner: Raquel Gonzalez

Rating: 2.5/5

AEW Dark

Thunder Rosa vs Nikita Knight

Squash City!

Winner: Thunder Rosa

Rating: 2/5

Kiera Hogan vs Leila Grey

Squash City!

Winner: Kiera Hogan

Rating: 2/5

Julia Hart vs Reka Tehaka

Squash City! But Julia Hart is still quite green in the ring.

Winner: Julia Hart

Rating: 1.5/5

AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite

Tay Conti & Anna Jay vs Penelope Ford & The Bunny

I expected more from this contest, but it was a huge botchfest with little to no enjoyment value. A huge missed opportunity.

Winner: Tay Conti & Anna Jay

Rating: 1.5/5

Impact Wrestling

Tenille Dashwood & Madison Rayne vs Jordynne Grace & Rachael Ellering

Standard Knockout's fare. This match wasn't given much time to put it's stamp on the show, but all four women did their best.

Winner: Tenille Dashwood & Madison Rayne

Rating: 2.5/5

WWE NXT UK

Dani Luna vs Xia Brookside

Again, this was a standard NXT UK women's match, but Xia Brookside continues to shine as the diamond in the rough.

Winner: Dani Luna

Rating: 2.5/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Bianca Belair vs Sasha Banks

A suspect finish aside, this was a strong match. Both women picked up where they left off before Sasha Banks' disappearance, with Bianca Belair once again showing why she is the future of WWE. Yes, Banks secured a tainted pinfall victory, but overall, it works within the storyline narrative of the three way feud for the SmackDown Women's Championship.

Winner: Sasha Banks

Rating: 3.5/5

AEW Rampage

Jade Cargill vs Nyla Rose vs Thunder Rosa

Jade Cargill absolutely shone brightest here, putting away Thunder Rosa and Nyla Rose in stunning fashion. This was essentially a female 'hoss fight', and as such, I was a huge mark for the violence on offer. Overall, this was a fantastic contest.

Winner: Jade Cargill

Rating: 3.5/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Bianca Belair vs Sasha Banks

As expected, this was another near faultless encounter for two of the most talented women in WWE.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Charlotte Flair

A squash victory and the closing segment on two different shows this week underlined Charlotte Flair's current strength.

DISAPPOINTMENT OF THE WEEK:

Doudrop's Squash Defeat

Surely she could have offered up something against Charlotte Flair?
