Women's Wrestling Weekly Recap & Review #377

Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, April 4, 2022

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

Sasha Banks, Naomi, Rhea Ripley, & Liv Morgan vs Natalya, Shayna Baszler, Carmella, & Queen Zelina

This was not the best way to set up their WrestleMania match, but to be fair, each week has featured a bastardised version of this match to no great success.

Winner: Sasha Banks, Naomi, Rhea Ripley, & Liv Morgan

Rating: 1.5/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Abadon vs Danni Bee

Squash City!

Nyla Rose vs Kiera Hogan

Squash City!

Rating: 2/5

AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite

The Bunny vs Toni Storm

The reveal of Toni Storm as The Bunny's mystery opponent was fantastic, especially as she felt like a huge deal. The match was standard, coming across as a fair contest to display both women's strengths.

Winner: Toni Storm

Rating: 2.5/5

Impact Wrestling

Knockout's Battle Royal

Although there was no great excitement to this match, it served well to set Rosemary up as a threat once more.

Winner: Rosemary

Rating: 2.5/5

Masha Slamovich vs Abby Jane

Squash City!

Winner: Masha Slamovich

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT UK

Xia Brookside vs Amale

Xia Brookside put on her best performance of 2022, defeating Amale in such a dominant and stylish fashion. If she can put in more performances like this, she could easily become a viable challenger to Meiko Satomura.

Winner: Xia Brookside

Rating: 3/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Naomi & Sasha Banks vs Carmella & Queen Zelina

Slightly better than the offering from Raw, this thankfully didn't overstay it's welcome. Carmella and Queen Zelina have well and truly disappointed as WWE Women's Tag Team Champions.

Winner: Naomi & Sasha Banks

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT Level Up

Kayden Carter vs Tatum Paxley

A fair contest that allowed both women to look strong. It appears that NXT Level Up is at least working well so far for the women of NXT 2.0.

Winner: Kayden Carter

Rating: 2/5

AEW Rampage

Skye Blue vs Jamie Hayter

Jamie Hayter put in a much better performance than she has displayed in 2022 so far, with the result never really in any doubt.

Winner: Jamie Hayter

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT: Stand & Deliver 2022

Mandy Rose vs Cora Jade vs Io Shirai vs Kay Lee Ray

Mandy Rose excelled here, as did everyone else involved. The action was solid, and whilst crowning Cora Jade here was an option, the fabulously evil Rose needed to win. She did so, ensuring Toxic Attraction at least left Stand and Deliver with some gold.

Winner: Mandy Rose

Rating: 3.5/5

Toxic Attraction vs Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai

I enjoyed this contest, but being on the Kick-Off Show was a slap in the face to everyone involved. I marked out at Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez winning, but I do hope they don't start a re-hash of their 2021 feud.

Winner: Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai

Rating: 3/5

WWE WrestleMania 38 Night 1

Becky Lynch vs Bianca Belair

This was Bianca Belair's second WrestleMania victory in a row, although I suspect that she is primed for a better 12 months this time around. Becky Lynch is still on a high from her SummerSlam return, which led to magic being captured on screen as they duked it out. A totally phenomenal offering!

Winner: Bianca Belair

Rating: 5/5

Charlotte Flair vs Ronda Rousey

I had very low expectations going into this contest, and to my chagrin, these expectations were not exceeded. Charlotte Flair tried her hardest, but something is just not clicking for Ronda Rousey. Flair retaining was the right decision, but I am intrigued to see where Rousey goes after this.

Winner: Charlotte Flair

Rating: 2.5/5

WWE WrestleMania 38 Night 2

Carmella & Queen Zelina vs Naomi & Sasha Banks vs Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan vs Natalya & Shayna Baszler

Sasha Banks finally has her WrestleMania victory! And unfortunately, that was the highlight of this middling, and often boring contest.

Winner: Naomi & Sasha Banks

Rating: 2.5/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Becky Lynch vs Bianca Belair

These two women created magic!

WOMEN OF THE WEEK:

Bianca Belair, Becky Lynch, & Charlotte Flair

All three women put on a heck of a performance at The Showcase of the Immortals.
