Women's Wrestling Weekly Recap & Review #390

Posted by Dallas Allsopp Tuesday, July 5, 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

Liv Morgan vs Alexa Bliss

For as brief as this encounter was, I really enjoyed it. Both Liv Morgan and Alexa Bliss are highly underrated in the ring, and whilst there wasn't much on the line here, Morgan defeating Bliss means something as she continues to work towards her first Women's Championship.

Winner: Liv Morgan

Rating: 2.5/5

Becky Lynch vs Tamina vs Doudrop vs Nikki A.S.H. vs Shayna Baszler vs Xia Li

Becky Lynch winning would usually be a given, but the storyline narrative she is embarking upon gave a real sense of doubt. Thankfully, she won, but everyone worked hard to create a sense of drama.

Winner: Becky Lynch

Rating: 3.5/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Anna Jay vs Heather Reckless

Squash City!

Winner: Anna Jay

Rating: 2/5

Ruby Soho vs Missa Kate

Squash City!

Winner: Ruby Soho

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT 2.0

Roxanne Perez & Cora Jade vs Kayden Carter & Katana Chance

This was nothing more than your average NXT 2.0 tag team match. Nothing great, but nothing offensive either.

Winner: Roxanne Perez & Cora Jade

Rating: 2.5/5

Kiana James vs Indi Hartwell

Although not a squash, Kiana James didn't look too bad in her victory.

Winner: Kiana James

Rating: 2/5

Mandy Rose vs Nikkita Lyons

I'm so over Mandy Rose as NXT Women's Champion, but Nikkita Lyons is not the future. This encounter was bland and stale.

Winner: Nikita Lyons

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark

Willow Nightingale vs Ashley D'Amboise

Squash City!

Winner: Willow Nightingale

Rating: 2/5

Athena vs Amber Nova

Squash City!

Winner: Athena

Rating: 2/5

Julia Hart vs Valentina Rossi

Squash City!

Winner: Julia Hart

Rating: 2/5

AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite

Jade Cargill vs Leila Grey

Squash City!

Winner: Jade Cargill

Rating: 2/5

Impact Wrestling

Giselle Shaw vs Rosemary

Meh... this was just not that entertaining at all.

Winner: Giselle Shaw

Rating: 1.5/5

Savanah Evans vs Jordynne Grace

Squash City!

Winner: Jordynne Grace

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT UK

Blair Davenport vs Angel Hayze

Squash City!

Winner: Blair Davenport

Rating: 2/5

Fallon Henley vs Emilia McKenzie

Squash City!

Winner: Fallon Henley

Rating: 1.5/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Asuka, Liv Morgan, & Alexa Bliss vs Raquel Rodriguez, Lacey Evans, & Shotzi

This was a clear example of the disparity in the women's rosters on WWE television. Raw's star power was much more immense and established, which led to a rollover for the red brand.

Winner: Asuka, Liv Morgan, & Alexa Bliss

Rating: 3/5

WWE NXT Level Up

Amari Miller vs Sloane Jacobs

Squash City!

Winner: Amari Miller

Rating: 2/5

AEW Rampage

Toni Storm vs Nyla Rose

Toni Storm continued her upward trajectory in AEW as part of a fine contest against Nyla Rose, who unfortunately is dropping more and more credibility by the week.

Winner: Toni Storm

Rating: 3/5

WWE Money in the Bank 2022

Lacey Evans vs Alexa Bliss vs Liv Morgan vs Raquel Rodriguez vs Asuka vs Shotzi vs Becky Lynch

Despite some glaring inclusions (I'm looking at you Shotzi) this wasn't a bad match. Most of the women had the opportunity to show what they do best, but the starlet in the eyes of fans that is Liv Morgan won to become a true breakout star. The fan reception was enough to justify the decision to have her win.

Winner: Liv Morgan

Rating: 3.5/5

Ronda Rousey vs Natalya

This match was actually not as bad as I expected. Neither woman truly starred, but they didn't shit the bed like I expected them to.

Winner: Ronda Rousey

Rating: 2/5

Ronda Rousey vs Liv Morgan

SHE DID IT!!!

Winner: Liv Morgan

Rating: 2.5/5

Bianca Belair vs Carmella

Squash City! This had no right being on a pay-per-view.

Winner: Bianca Belair

Rating: 2/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Lacey Evans vs Alexa Bliss vs Liv Morgan vs Raquel Rodriguez vs Asuka vs Shotzi vs Becky Lynch

This was simply one of the better iterations of the women's Money in the Bank match.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Liv Morgan

By cashing in her Money in the Bank briefcase to become WWE SmackDown Women's Champion, Liv Morgan finally ascended to the top of the division. And it was so well deserved!

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!
