Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, October 25, 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 Doudrop

The majority of this match consisisted of Shayna Baszler locking in the Kirifuda Clutch, whilst Doudrop stole the pinfall victory. The longest Queen's Crown match so far, which is a sad indictment on the tournament as a whole.

Winner: Doudrop

Rating: 2/5

Charlotte Flair vs Bianca Belair

Featuring some solid wrestling, this was a worthy main event for Raw. Bianca Belair was presented as a genuine threat to Charlotte Flair, hence her desperate DQ. Overall, this was a solid and entertaining contest.

Winner: Bianca Belair (via DQ)

Rating: 3.5/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Red Velvet, Ryo Mizunami, & Kilynn King vs Emi Sakura, Diamante, & Nyla Rose

A fun multi-woman match, this was a welcome change to the usual barrage of squash women's matches on Elevation.

Winner: Emi Sakura, Diamante, & Nyla Rose

Rating: 3/5

WWE NXT

Cora Jade vs Elektra Lopez

Squash City!

Winner: Cora Jade

Rating: 2/5

Io Shirai vs Persia Pirotta vs Jacy Jayne

A scary bump for Jacy Jayne aside, this was a decent enough contest. The wind was taken out of the match as a result of the bump, but Io Shirai and Persia Pirotta were more than able to put on a fun sequence.

Winner: Io Shirai

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark

Jamie Hayter vs Tiffany Nieves

Squash City!

Winner: Jamie Hayter

Rating: 2/5

Thunder Rosa, Kris Statlander, & Red Velvet vs Nyla Rose, Emi Sakura, & Diamanté

Again, this was a pleasant match that stood out well due to being more than just a squash match.

Winner: Thunder Rosa, Kris Statlander, & Red Velvet

Rating: 3/5

Impact Wrestling

Mickie James vs Savannah Evans

Mickie James made Savannah Evans look like a star here, which evidences just how talented a veteran she is. This set James up well for her upcoming match with Deonna Purrazzo, whilst also preserving the integrity of the Knockout's division.

Winner: Mickie James

Rating: 3/5

WWE NXT UK

Aleah James vs Xia Brookside

Xia Brookside deserves so much better than being placed in mediocre contests. This was not fun at all.

Winner: Aleah James

Rating: 1.5/5

WWE Crown Jewel 2021

Doudrop vs Zelina Vega

A complete mismatch in the ring. This was not a good match, but I can see Zelina Vega running with The Queen gimmick and making it her own.

Winner: Zelina Vega

Rating: 2/5

Becky Lynch vs Bianca Belair vs Sasha Banks

Triple Threat matches are often hard to book, but these three women worked hard to put on a strong match. Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair both seemed deserving of capturing the SmackDown Women's Championship, but the wily Becky Lynch once again stole the victory. It finally feels like she is coming into her own as a heel.

Winner: Becky Lynch

Rating: 3/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

There were no women's matches this week. Instead, here is a really insipid Charlotte Flair segment.

AEW Rampage

Britt Baker vs Anna Jay

As an AEW Women's World Championship match, it lacked the usual drama you would associate with it. Anna Jay was never going to win, but she at least looked good as she had her ass handed to her by Britt Baker. Most notably, it was Tay Conti who looked amazing as she held aloft the title, signalling her intent to defeat The Doctor at Full Gear.

Winner: Britt Baker

Rating: 3/5

AEW Saturday Night Dynamite

Ruby Soho vs Penelope Ford

A quite frankly mediocre match with very little sizzle. Not a great way to start the TBS Championship tournament.

Winner: Ruby Soho

Rating: 2/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Charlotte Flair vs Bianca Belair

Charlotte Flair vs Bianca Belair is a match I can get behind, especially when both women work as hard as they do.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Zelina Vega

She may not be amazing in the ring, but Zelina Vega can truly run with The Queen gimmick.

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!
