Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, May 2, 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

Bianca Belair vs Sonya Deville

This was an incredibly botched WWE Raw Women's Championship match, as Sonya Deville is more than capable of putting on a show. But no, we get the single worst match of the year. There was nothing to enjoy here.

Winner: Bianca Belair

Rating: 1/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Kris Statlander vs Julia Hart

Squash City!

Winner: Kris Statlander

Rating: 2/5

Emi Sakura, The Bunny, & Nyla Rose vs Ruby Soho, Anna Jay, & Skye Blue

Squash City!

Winner: Ruby Soho, Anna Jay, & Skye Blue

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT 2.0

Nikkita Lyons vs Lash Legend

Squash City!

Winner: Nikkita Lyons

Rating: 2/5

Katana Chance & Kayden Carter vs Yulisa Leon & Valentina Feroz

Squash City! I am not, however, a fan of Kacy Catanzaro's new name!

Winner: Katana Chance & Kayden Carter

Rating: 2/5

Mandy Rose vs Roxanne Perez

Mandy Rose clearly demonstrated her immense talent here, but the result was never really in doubt. Nevertheless, this was a solid and fun match to watch.

Winner: Mandy Rose

Rating: 2.5/5

AEW Dark

Red Velvet vs Dulce Tormenta

Squash City!

Winner: Red Velvet

Rating: 2/5

Anna Jay & Skye Blue vs The Bunny & Raychell Rose

Squash City!

Winner: Anna Jay & Skye Blue

Rating: 2/5

Charlette Renegade vs Abadon

Squash City!

Winner: Abadon

Rating: 2/5

AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite

Serena Deeb vs Hikaru Shida

These two never fail to put on a showcase of the strengths within AEW's women's divison. Serena Deeb absolutely kicked ass, whilst Hikaru Shida reminded fans of the valiant face she is. I love both women, and they absolutely ruled here.

Winner: Serena Deeb

Rating: 4/5

Impact Wrestling

Decay vs Savannah Evans & Tasha Steelz

Although not entirely without it's merits, this match failed to display the true strengths of the Knockout's division.

Winner: Decay

Rating: 2.5/5

WWE Main Event

Liv Morgan vs Nikki A.S.H.

Generic Main Event female wrestling, with a very by the numbers heel beatdown of Liv Morgan. Nikki A.S.H. failed to shine, whilst Morgan never benefited from her victory.

Winner: Liv Morgan

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT UK

Xia Brookside vs Angel Hayze

Squash City!

Winner: Xia Brookside

Rating: 2/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Raquel Rodriguez vs Cat Cardoza

Squash City!

Winner: Raquel Rodriguez

Rating: 2/5

Naomi vs Shayna Baszler

I enjoyed this brief match, especially as it appears Naomi and Shayna Baszler work well together. As part of a bigger angle on another show, they could put on a real clssic.

Winner: Naomi

Rating: 2.5/5

Ronda Rousey vs Shotzi

Squash City!

Winner: Ronda Rousey

Rating: 3/5

Charlotte Flair vs Aliyah

The Beat the Clock challenge flopped, and flopped hard. No-one came out looking particularly strong, and I'm mortified that Aliyah and Shotzi were lambs to the slaughter.

Winner: Time Limit Draw

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT Level Up

Amari Miller vs Arianna Grace

Squash City!

Winner: Arianna Grace

Rating: 2/5

AEW Rampage

Jade Cargill, Red Velvet, & Kiera Hogan vs Skye Blue, Trish Adora, & Willow Nightingale

Squash City! I'm in love with The Baddies!

Winner: Jade Cargill, Red Velvet, & Kiera Hogan

Rating: 2.5/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Serena Deeb vs Hikaru Shida

This was simply an instant classic.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Bianca Belair

Despite all of the bullshit she contends with, Bianca Belair still shines as the starlet on Raw.
