Women's Wrestling Weekly Recap & Review #353

Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, October 18, 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

Shayna Baszler vs Dana Brooke

Squash City!

Winner: Shayna Baszler

Rating: 2/5

Bianca Belair & Sasha Banks vs Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch

No one won here, really. This is because all potential for the match to be a banger was ruined by the awful booking of these interlocking feuds. I was not a fan, and all four women can do much better.

Winner: No Contest

Rating: 2/5

Doudrop vs Natalya

Squash City!

Winner: Doudrop

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Penelope Ford vs Notorious Mimi

Squash City!

Winner: Penelope Ford

Rating: 2/5

Tay Conti vs Dani Mo

Squash City!

Winner: Tay Conti

Rating: 2/5

Ruby Soho vs Emi Sakura

Ruby Soho may have stolen the victory, but it was a win which is more valuable than it initially seems. Soho was at risk of falling down the card, but here at least, she showed she deserves another shot at the top.

Winner: Ruby Soho

Rating: 3/5

WWE NXT

Ivy Nile vs Valentina Feroz

Squash City!

Winner: Ivy Nile

Rating: 2/5

Persia Pirotta & Indi Hartwell vs Sarray & Amari Miller

Squash City!

Winner: Persia Pirotta & Indi Hartwell

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark

Ashley D’Amboise vs Kilynn King

Squash City!

Winner: Kiliynn King

Rating: 2/5

Impact Wrestling

Savannah Evans vs Lady Frost

This just, existed. Nothing more and nothing less.

Winner: Savannah Evans

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT UK

Blair Davenport vs Stevie Turner

Both women worked hard here, keeping up NXT UK's recent momentum of producing solid to great women's matches. I do have to say, however, that Stevie Turner is a dark horse within the promotion.

Winner: Blair Davenport

Rating: 3/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Naomi vs Sonya Deville & Shayna Baszler

Bait amd switch. Clear and egregious bait and switch at that! I don't care how well this advanced Naomi vs Sonya Deville as a storyline - this was fucking awful and an insult to fans!

Winner: Sonya Deville & Shayna Baszler

Rating: 1/5

Carmella vs Zelina Vega

Awful. Awful. Awful! I didn't expect a five star classic here, but both women were essentially disrespected by the lack of attention and time afforded to their match.

Winner: Zelina Vega

Rating: 1.5/5

Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks

Exciting matches are almost a guarantee between these two stars, and thankfully, they managed to entertain once again. Sasha Banks winning was a surprise, but it gives her confidence to wrest away the SmackDown Women's Championship from The Man at Crown Jewel.

Winner: Sasha Banks

Rating: 3.5/5

AEW Rampage

Tay Conti vs Santana Garrett

Squash City!

Winner: Tay Conti

Rating: 2/5

The Bunny vs Ruby Soho

This felt like a prelude to Penelope Ford smashing Ruby Soho with brass knuckles post match. Which is a real shame, as both women are capable of more.

Winner: Ruby Soho

Rating: 2.5/5

AEW Saturday Night Dynamite

Kiera Hogan vs Penelope Ford

Penelope Ford worked well with Kiera Hogan, and although the contest was too brief for my liking, it was entertaining enough for a Saturday night.

Winner: Penelope Ford

Rating: 2.5/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks

Quite simply another fine chapter in their long term rivalry.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Shayna Baszler

The Queen of Spades is still a highlight of Raw after regaining her fire and threatening personality.
