Women's Wrestling Weekly Recap & Review #387

Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, June 13, 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

Dana Brooke vs Becky Lynch

This was an absolutely dire match, creating a blend of confusion against the WWE 24/7 Championship and the women's division. Becky Lynch challenging for the title should have provided the lacklustre belt with some sense of pride and validity, but in all honesty, it has simply dragged down the stellar reputation of The Man. Certainly not a match to salivate over.

Winner: Dana Brooke

Rating: 1.5/5

Rhea Ripley vs Liv Morgan vs Alexa Bliss vs Doudrop

The winner of this match would be announced as the number one contender to Bianca Belair's WWE Raw Women's Championship. All four women had a decent shout of becoming the number one contender, although Rhea Ripley's victory never really seemed in doubt. The work rate was high for this contest, and all four women deserve to take the plaudits this week.

Winner: Rhea Ripley

Rating: 3/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Miyu Yamashita & Skey Blue vs Serena Deeb & Nyla Rose

Squash City!

Winner: Serena Deeb & Nyla Rose

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT 2.0

Roxanne Perez vs Tiffany Stratton

Although this match went on far too long, the action itself wasn't outright bad. In all fairness, both women still have a long way to go before they are worthy of the main roster, but they at least performed well when asked of them.

Winner: Roxanne Perez

Rating: 2.5/5

Alba Fyre vs Tatum Paxley

Squash City!

Winner: Alba Fyre

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark

Marina Shafir vs Skye Blue

Squash City!

Winner: Marina Shafir

Rating: 2/5

Toni Storm vs Zeda Zhang

Squash City!

Winner: Toni Storm

Rating: 2/5

AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite

Thunder Rosa vs Marina Shafir

Squash City!

Winner: Thunder Rosa

Rating: 2/5

Impact Wrestling

Rosemary vs Tenille Dashwood

This was a fine, if not extraordinary match, with both women representing themselves well. Rosemary winning was perhaps the correct decision, as she appears to have the ascendacy of momentum at the moment.

Winner: Rosemary

Rating: 2.5/5

WWE NXT UK

Eliza Alexander vs Amale

Squash City!

Winner: Eliza Alexander

Rating: 2/5

Meiko Satomura vs Ivy Nile

The issue I have with Meiko Satomura's WWE NXT UK Women's Championship reign is that she never feels threatened when defending the title. She certainly engages in good matches, but in the main, she is never once troubled. The same happened this week, with Ivy Nile putting up a spirited, but ultimately unsuccessful fight. The action was good, but the lack of drama really hurt this.

Winner: Meiko Satomura

Rating: 3/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Lacey Evans vs Xia Li

Squash City!

Winner: Lacey Evans

Rating: 2/5

Ronda Rousey vs Shotzi

Oh my days! Ronda Rousey just is not clicking as WWE SmackDown Women's Champion, and in Shotzi, she was not presented with an opponent that could elevate her own performance. This was simply an embarrassing mess.

Winner: Ronda Rousey

Rating: 1.5/5

WWE NXT Level Up

Valentina Feroz vs Arianna Grace

Squash City!

Winner: Valentina Feroz

Rating: 2/5

Sloane Jacobs vs Sierra St. Pierre

Squash City!

Winner: Sloane Jacobs

Rating: 2/5

AEW Rampage

Kris Statlander vs Red Velvet

This was all about the ongoing feud between Kris Statlander, Athena, Anna Jay, and The Baddies. Therefore, the match was secondary to the interactions.

Winner: Kris Statlander

Rating: 2.5/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Rhea Ripley vs Liv Morgan vs Alexa Bliss vs Doudrop

Raw seemingly excels at the moment with multi-women matches, with this particular contest showcasing Rhea Ripley as a real star.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Rhea Ripley

In terms of presence, Rhea Ripley has been a big part of Raw this week, and I am eagerly anticipating her upcoming match with Bianca Belair at Money in the Bank.
