WWE Monday Night Raw

Mia Yim vs Tamina

Squash City! And damn did Tamina look awful here!

Winner: Mia Yim

Rating: 2/5

Iyo Skye vs Dana Brooke

Squash City! And guess what? Dana Brooke also looked dogshit here!

Winner: Iyo Skye

Rating: 2/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Tay Melo vs Paris Van Dale

Squash City!

Winner: Tay Melo

Rating: 2/5

Athena vs Kayla Sparks

Squash City!

Winner: Athena

Rating: 2/5

Mei Suruga & Emi Sakura vs Riho & Willow Nightingale

This was a very enjoyable bout, featuring some high octane action that justfied it's position as the main event of the night. Riho, in particular, as an absolute delight within AEW's women's division, and she looked absolutely fantastic in the ring here.

Winner: Riho & Willow Nightingale

Rating: 3/5


Indi Hartwell vs Tatum Paxley

Squash City!

Winner: Indi Hartwell

Rating: 2/5

Mandy Rose vs Alba Fyre

This was very much a match of two halves, as the action prior to the finish was definitely more than serviceable. However, having Isla Dawn cost Alba Fyre the victory fell extremely flat, with Mandy Rose once again escaping with the NXT Women's Championship. That is not to say I have an issue with her as Champion, but the execution of the match finish detracted from the overall enjoyment level. Put bluntly, the finish left me extremely irate.

Winner: Mandy Rose

Rating: 3.5/5

AEW Dark

Skye Blue vs Paris Van Dale

Squash City!

Winner: Skye Blue

Rating: 2/5

Kiera Hogan vs Kennedi Copeland

Squash City!

Winner: Kiera Hogan

Rating: 2/5

Athena vs Little Mean Kathleen

Squash City!

Winner: Athena

Rating: 2/5

AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite

Toni Storm vs Anna Jay

Squash City!

Winner: Toni Storm

Rating: 2/5

Impact Wrestling

Taya Valkyrie vs Tasha Steelz

Essentially all kinds of mediocre. Please avoid this one!

Winner: Taya Valkyrie

Rating: 1.5/5

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Shotzi vs Shayna Baszler

Fuck me this was awful!!! I'd rather have Shayna Baszler go three minutes with me inside the Octagon than watch another Shotzi match! She is the very definition of the drizzling shits!!!

Winner: Shotzi

Rating: 1/5

WWE NXT Level Up

Thea Hail vs Dani Palmer

Squash City! A very boring sojourn to Squash City!

Winner: Thea Hail

Rating: 2/5

AEW Rampage

Athena vs Madison Rayne

Squash City!

Winner: Athena

Rating: 2/5

AEW Full Gear 2022

Jade Cargill vs Nyla Rose

There was no reason at all for Jade Cargill to lose here, therefore it was fantastic to see her largely dominate Nyla Rose. Cargill is coming into her own in AEW as AEW TBS Champion, and I feel she is on her way to becoming a huge face for the company. As a women's hoss match, this was a fun slice of wrestling.

Winner: Jade Cargill

Rating: 3/5

Saraya vs Britt Baker

I am Team DMD. I do not like Saraya, as her entire attitude is not one I can support, especially as I feel her return to wrestling has been poorly handled. Britt Baker remains as fantastic as ever, but she should not have lost here.

Winner: Saraya

Rating: 3/5

Toni Storm vs Jamie Hayter

I was suprised that Tony Khan went with a title switch here, but that is not to say Jamie Hayter did not deserve it. Yes, Toni Storm has been a solid Interim AEW Women's World Champion, but Hayter has slowly been gathering momentum over the past few months, which means striking whilst the iron is hot was vital. The match action itself was solid enough, but Hayter winning the title was a strong moment for her and fans to enjoy.

Winner: Jamie Hayter

Rating: 3/5


Mandy Rose vs Alba Fyre

Although the manage finish was garbage, I did actually really enjoy the action on offer.


Jade Cargill

Jade Cargill managed to get a great match out of Nyla Rose, all whilst looking fantastic. Yes, I may be a 'stan' of 'That Bitch', but I do love what Cargill brings to AEW's women's division.
