Posted by Dallas Allsopp Tuesday, August 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

Alexa Bliss vs Doudrop

This was a gigantic mess that only served to show just how unimportant Doudrop is, whilst Alexa Bliss is a victim to 'booking limbo'.

Winner: Alexa Bliss

Rating: 1.5/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose vs Angelica Risk & Shalonce Royal

Squash City!

Winner: Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose

Rating: 2/5

Toni Storm vs Emi Sakura

Squash City this was not! For an Elevation match, this was quite the barnstormer. Toni Storm deservedly went over, but Emi Sakura made her look the part.

Winner: Toni Storm

Rating: 3.5/5

Kris Statlander vs Brittany

Squash City!

Winner: Kris Statlander

Rating: 2/5

Hikaru Shida vs Robyn Renegade

Squash City!

Winner: Hikaru Shida

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT 2.0

Zoey Stark vs Gigi Dolin

Although this match wasn't given the time it deserved, it is clear Gigi Dolin is primed for superstardom when the inevitable Toxic Attraction split happens.

Winner: Zoey Stark

Rating: 2.5/5

Indi Hartwell vs Arianna Grace

Squash City!

Winner: Indi Hartwell

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark

Kiera Hogan vs Allie Recks

Squash City!

Winner: Kiera Hogan

Rating: 2/5

Marina Shafir vs Tracy Nyxx

Squash City!

Winner: Marina Shafir

Rating: 2/5

Julia Hart vs Reee Michelle

Squash City!

Winner: Julia Hart

Rating: 2/5

AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite: Fight for the Fallen

Thunder Rosa vs Miyu Yamishita

Considering their previous match on Dark, this was a piss poor imitation of that stunner. Both women were two steps below their usual performance.

Winner: Thunder Rosa

Rating: 2.5/5

Impact Wrestling

Jada Stone va Tiffany Nieves

Squash City!

Winner: Tiffany Nieves

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT UK

Blair Davenport vs Amale

Squash City! A much more improved performance from Blair Davenport here.

Winner: Blair Davenport

Rating: 2/5

WWE Main Event

Tamina & Carmella vs Asuka & Dana Brooke

Watching paint dry is more entertaining than this pathetic excuse of a contest. Asuka was sorely wasted here.

Winner: Asuka & Dana Brooke

Rating: 1/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Shotzi vs Aliyah

I don't care how popular Shotzi may be - she is utter garbage in the ring. She is essentially a botch machine at this point, and Aliyah deserves much better than being a potential victim for Shotzi's poor in ring technique.

Winner: Shotzi

Rating: 1/5

Liv Morgan & Ronda Rousey vs Natalya & Sonya Deville

Squash City!

Winner: Liv Morgan & Ronda Rousey

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT Level Up

Fallon Henley vs Sol Ruca

Squash City!

Winner: Fallon Henley

Rating: 2/5

AEW Rampage

Anna Jay vs Ruby Soho

Although the match quality was poor, Anna Jay at least delivered a strong performance as a heel. Unfortunately, Ruby Soho seems to have peaked already in AEW.

Winner: Anna Jay

Rating: 2/5

WWE SummerSlam 2022

Bianca Belair vs Becky Lynch

Fantastic! This match was just as good as their WrestleMania encounter, with some elements surpassing the quality of that contest. Bianca Belair winning was 100% the correct decision, especially as it allowed Becky Lynch to turn face as she joined forces with Belair to ward off the returning Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky. Yeah... I hate that name too.

Winner: Bianca Belair

Rating: 4/5

Liv Morgan vs Ronda Rousey

I can only describe this as awful, as Ronda Rousey's heel turn was played as more significant than Liv Morgan's fledgling reign as WWE SmackDown Women's Champion. I was sorely disappointed here.

Winner: Liv Morgan

Rating: 2/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Bianca Belair vs Becky Lynch

They reprised their WrestleMania masterpiece with another fantastic match.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Bayley

Bayley is back! And in Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky, she has a menacing force behind her.
