Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, May 16, 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

Rhea Ripley vs Liv Morgan

Although not the barnstorming affair it could have been, this was at least a solid teaser of what is to come between these two enemies.

Winner: Rhea Ripley

Rating: 2.5/5

Alexa Bliss vs Sonya Deville

Alexa Bliss returned, but in the most underwhelming fashion possible. Sonya Deville means absolutely nothing at the moment.

Winner: Alexa Bliss

Rating: 1.5/5

Naomi & Sasha Banks vs Doudrop & Nikki A.S.H.

This was a fantastic tag team contest, with Naomi and Sasha Banks once more proving how valued they should be as the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions. They are absolute stars who work well together, even elevating the impromptu pairing of Doudrop and Nikki A.S.H.

Winner: Naomi & Sasha Banks

Rating: 4/5

Bianca Belair vs Asuka

As a vehichle to move towards Becky Lynch vs Asuka, this was fine. But it does make Bianca Belair look somewhat stupid.

Winner: Bianca Belair

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Emi Sakura vs Abadon

Squash City!

Winner: Abadon

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT 2.0

Toxic Attraction vs Roxanne Perez & Wendy Choo

No more than an average NXT 2.0 match, this was a poor effort by Toxic Attraction to look the dominant force we know they can be.

Winner: Toxic Attraction

Rating: 2.5/5

Fallon Henley vs Sloane Jacobs

Squash City!

Winner: Fallon Henley

Rating: 2/5

Alba Fyre vs Amari Miller

Squash City!

Winner: Alba Fyre

Rating: /5

Nikkita Lyons vs Arianna Grace

Squash City!

Winner: Nikkita Lyons

Rating: 2/5

Natalya vs Cora Jade

Natalya made Cora Jade here, giving her a Stone Cold at WrestleMania 13-esque moment. I enjoyed it, especially as Natalya looked strong for once.

Winner: Natalya

Rating: 3.5/5

AEW Dark

Abadon vs Vicky Dreamboat

Squash City!

Winner: Abadon

Rating: 2/5

Kiera Hogan vs Skye Blue

Squash City!

Winner: Kiera Hogan

Rating: 2/5

AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite

Toni Storm vs Jamie Hayter

Squash City!

Winner: Toni Storm

Rating: 2/5

Impact Wrestling

The Influence vs Alisha Edwards & Gisele Shaw

Very mediocre, which is a shame as The Influence are capable of much better.

Winner: The Influence

Rating: 2.5/5

WWE NXT UK

Ivy Nile vs Nina Samuels

Squash City!

Winner: Ivy Nile

Rating: 2/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Ronda Rousey vs Raquel Rodriguez

Raquel Rodriguez stepped up to the plate in stunning fashion, and although she lost, she has made her name known on the blue brand.

Winner: Ronda Rousey

Rating: 2.5/5

Naomi & Sasha Banks vs Natalya & Shayna Baszler

Although not as strong as their Raw match, Naomi and Sasha Banks elevated yet another contest to interesting and entertaining levels.

Winner: Naomi & Sasha Banks

Rating: 3/5

WWE NXT Level Up

Thea Hail vs Elektra Lopez

Squash City!

Winner: Elektra Lopez

Rating: 2/5

AEW Rampage

Ruby Soho vs Riho

Despite not being a pure squash, this match was all about re-establishing Ruby Soho as a threat within AEW's women's division.

Winner: Ruby Soho

Rating: 3/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Naomi & Sasha Banks vs Doudrop & Nikki A.S.H.
