Top Women’s Matches In Women’s Evolution.

Over the weekend I watched my favorite women’s matches and moments. I wanted to give you all my list and maybe you will enjoy re-watching these like I did.

AJ Lee pipebomb: I had a lot of animosity towards the divas era. When Lita and Trish retired I fell out of love of wrestling. Divas era made me so mad because I had so much satisfaction and hope from everything the golden era built, not just Trish and Lita but all those women. I remember when I first started getting back into wrestling right after I watched Sasha vs. Bayley I decided to try to catch up on the women’s division on the main roster. One thing that really stood out and caught my eye was AJ Lee. In every promo, interview, match I could tell with her actions that she wanted women’s wrestling to be taken seriously and she refused to dress up like a diva to accomplish it. She was in some very interesting storylines and her career wasn’t he longest but her matches and the pipe bomb really put fuel on the divas and the divas era. It made people think and soon after that we had people saying give divas a chance.

Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte July 25th 2016: This was Sasha’s first title reign, this is where she finally captured the gold against Charlotte. This was a huge moment, not many thought anyone could beat Charlotte, a lot of us thought Charlotte would of held onto that forever. Sasha showed everyone that she may have not been born into wrestling, but nothing was stopping her from being born to do this. One of my favorite matches and moments personally for me in the women’s evolution.

Sasha vs. Bayley RESPECT: A lot of people liked Brooklyn better but RESPECT is what really nailed into my chest that Sasha and Bayley were gonna change women’s wrestling and no one was gonna stop them. The storytelling in this match was at it’s finest and Sasha played the heel so damn good. One of my favorite matches of all time.

Sasha vs. Becky. vs. Charlotte WM 32: At this time I had watched NXT and caught up on anything Sasha and Bayley were doing, but I hadn’t really been caught up on Charlotte or Becky yet and there NXT that I rewatched hadn’t invested me yet. This right here, the first time since I cried watching wrestling as a little girl, all that passion and emotions started again. Seeing Sasha come out I thought I know Flair’s daughter is in this match and Becky seemed over with the crowd but Sasha looked like the star, seeing her come out I thought there was no way she wasn’t leaving with the gold. That didn’t happen, but it was still one of the best women’s matches at Wrestlemania ever. It will always have a special place in my heart.

Asuka vs. Bayley NXT Dallas: This didn’t only start the beginning of Asuka’s dominant reign, but it showed us a side of Bayley we didn’t see. She lost her I’m happy and found a darkness inside of her, a toughness to compete with Asuka. Not a lot of people talk about this match, but both women put on an amazing performance and it’s a match I always go back to especially when referring to Asuka and how damn good she is.

Nikki Cross vs. Asuka June 28th 2017 NXT: I remember watching this match on my couch and thinking holy shit women can do last women standing matches now. I loved Nikki’s character in NXT, she had that hardcore edge and I really loved it. Asuka was the dominant champion, but really Nikki took her to that extreme level. One of my favorite NXT matches.

Asuka vs. Charlotte wm 34: This is a match that I believe should of main evented Wrestlemania. That year I really believe it should of happened. I thought it was time for Asuka to take a loss to someone leginiment and who was better than the queen Charlotte, at the time that no one thought anyone could be on her level ever. Now we have Rhea, Asuka, Sasha, Bayley, and a lot of the NXT girls that are catching up. This match didn’t only have athleticism it had a story and a lot of emotion from both women. Asuka wanting Charlotte to be the one to beat her and Charlotte have so many rollercoaster emotions due to her brother who passed away loving japanese wrestling and wrestling in japan. I will always remember this match.

Sasha vs. Bayley vs. Charlotte vs. Nia: Bayley didn’t get to be part of Wrestlemania 32, but I loved having Bayley added to this match. Sasha showed out in this match and it was another example of why they deserved to not only main event Wrestlemania but any PPV.

Sasha vs. Charlotte HIAC: I remember a lot of backlash from fans from this match. This is about when I first started listening to wrestling podcasts and signed up for a Twitter which some days feels like a damn mistake. This match will always mean a lot to me, not only was it the first ever HIAC match, but it was the first time I felt hope that Sasha and Charlotte could keep women’s wrestling going and we could keep getting more first evers and not any bathroom break wrestling matches. This was the first time since Lita and Trish that I thought wow we are actually getting a storyline here. This is better than the men’s storylines, that just gave me a lot of happiness and hope.

First ever women’s royal rumble: That night was so magical. I remember seeing Lita come out the ring and her giving Sasha and Becky a moonsault and just thinking this is so damn cool. There was surprises, storytelling and amazing in ring work in this royal rumble. I’m not sure if anything can ever live up to it, it was a special night and moment that I knew we are never going back, women’s wrestling is only gonna get brighter and better.

Charlotte vs. Natalya NXT: Charlotte puts over this match a lot, but not many people bring it up on there list. This right here was a huge deal, a superstar coming from the main roster to humble an NXT talent and for the championship. The respect, storytelling and match itself was a moment that fans were like wow, women can have long matches too. They just have to let us.

Becky vs. Charlotte Evolution: This storyline started out so hot and I have to be honest a lot of their matches during this feud fell a little short for me, but the last woman standing match at Evolution made me forget all of that. These two risked everything and told one of the best stories I have seen two women tell in ring.

Charlotte vs. Bayley February 13th 2017: This was Bayley’s first title on the main roster. I remember getting off work late, not looking on social media and just going home and watching this on my DVR. Just soaking in Bayley finally getting her shot. Charlotte’s facials and the story she told in ring with Bayley was top notch and Bayley played the babyface good. I’m sure a lot of people won’t choose this on their top list but for me it’s more than some highspots, or flashy spots, I really enjoyed the storytelling and story Charlotte and Bayley had here.

Women’s tag championship elimination chamber: Growing up I was obsessed with tag team wrestling and there was a point when WWE had tag team division and titles but nothing like this. The story behind this is also just amazing. Bayley had admitted in interviews and wrestling websites have reported that during the time that Bayley and Sasha had their feud that everyone was complaining about on Raw that Sasha was pitching to Vince that they wanted tag titles. Every Monday night she would go into Vince’s office and continue to pitch ideas, and demand for women’s tag titles until they got them. That is dedication and heart. Not only was this my favorite elimination chamber match, but what it meant to me just meant everything. For the two wrestler that got me back into wrestling were not tag champs just brought tears to my eyes.

Charlotte vs. Bayley vs. Sasha vs. Becky NXT Rival: NXT got to see the group that turned into the 4-horsewomen all battle each other to prove who is the best. These 4 are so important to the women’s revolution/evolution. I know a lot of people say they are overrated or always get the credit, but I am being honest without the 4 horsewomen I do not think we would be where we are at. We wouldn’t have first evers and we wouldn’t have Ronda. Charlotte was the athletic one that refused to be a model, Sasha was the one that have dreamt of changing the word diva, Bayley was the one that refused to change herself to fit the mold and Becky was the one that gave up on her dream, but fate pushed her to tryout for WWE during the perfect time. All women didn’t wanna be a diva, they wanted to compete, they wanted storylines, they wanted to be better than the men. They refused to settle for less.

Sasha vs. Bayley NXT Brooklyn: I think it’s perfect to end with this match on my top list. I have rewatched all of the NXT matches and respect is my favorite, but the first time I started watching wrestling again I was on youtube and suddenly the NXT pre show panel was live streaming. I saw the promo for Sasha vs. Bayley and in that moment I signed up for WWE network, watched an amazing PPV and decided I am never letting wrestling slip away from me again. At that time, I didn’t care about myself, I didn’t care about my life. I was depressed and had no reason to live. That night it sparked something in me, gave me a reason to love and live. In a way Sasha and Bayley saved my life. I will always have a big part of my heart dedicated to Sasha and Bayley for doing that and waking me up. This match at the end of the day had storytelling, phycology, chemistry and in ring action we had never seen before. It’s a classic.

Ember vs. Asuka NXT Takeover Chicago: The Ember and Asuka feud was so underrated. With 4-horsewomen gone they needed women to stand up and take over NXT. Asuka’s dominant streak and the hard fought matches were proof, but if there was a babyface a woman that could sell like no other it was Ember moon. This match meant a lot because they didn’t depend on anyone to get them over, they just went out there and did it.

Io vs. Candice NXT Takeover Toronto: The women’s evolution is still continuing in NXT and these two tore the house down at NXT Toronto. I been a big fan of both of these ladies before they came to NXT. Candice fighting the men and having a babyface sense like no other and Io tearing it up in Japan. Both of these women are continuing the women’s evolution.

Becky vs. Sasha NXT Unstoppable: There is no denying Sasha vs. Bayley got to our hearts but Becky vs. Sasha was a very underrated match that told an amazing story. This really stamped Becky as part of the 4-horsewomen and not the red headed step child being left behind.

Charlotte vs. Sasha vs. Bayley Clash Of Champions: This match was a huge part of Bayley’s career. Going to the main roster and Charlotte and Sasha having in an intense feud but it was the moment that Bayley decided, NO this is my time too.

Sasha vs. Asuka January 29th 2018: There is so many wonderful matches on this list and more that I could clearly add, but this is my last one because it is very special to me. Sasha Banks my favorite wrestler was in the royal rumble the night before this for the longest time. I always wanted to see Asuka vs. Sasha and this Monday night we did. It was just a Raw and I don’t think anyone expected this to be a good match but it was. The energy and chemistry Asuka had we just got a taste of but this was a statement. Yes we can have all these firsts but at the end of they day we ain’t going anywhere, women’s wrestling isn’t going anywhere.

I really have been loving Raw. Smackdown has been a challenge lately. I usually like NXT better but I liked Raw better this week.

I know a lot of people didn’t like the opening because they thought these two men having a match wasn’t must watch TV, especially with AEW on the other channel. I personally liked this, I could of used the match to be shorter but it did what it was supposed to do gave Strong a solid win and we got him and Dream continued.

I have to say amazing in ring action on NXT this week. I really enjoyed Candice vs. Kai and I was speechless for Lio vs. Garza. I swear anytime Candice bleeds in a match it becomes a classic or at least really amazing match. Her and Kai got good chemistry, I actually prefer matches with them over Kai vs. Teagon. I really can’t say enough about Lio Rush, this man mesmerizes me when it comes to in ring wrestling. I would love the title back on Lio.

I feel they got everyone already invested into Bianca vs. Rhea vs. Charlotte for Mania that Bianca losing and us not having the match would be a huge disappointment. Bianca is a mega star and has been proving she is the woman, the future and she needs to win at Wrestlemania and becomes new NXT women’s champion. You have to display your stars and show who is the most over and reward your fans. Bianca is more over than Rhea.

Raw had loads of action and storytelling, what stood out to me was Shayna attacking Becky, biting her neck and looking like a damn badass. Yes I agree there was probably too much blood but to make it believable you could of had Becky just not move. In the end I really liked this and the storytelling we are getting.

It was a surprise and great to see MVP back again and him in these segments are much better than him wrestling. He is getting up there and I thought this was good use of him. Drew looked bad ass and this segment did what it needed to do.

The stuff with Rhea and Charlotte was alright. I just feel between these three Charlotte and Bianca over shadow Rhea.

I loved the Randy Orton and Matt Hardy segment, this was my favorite part of Raw. Matt Hardy bringing up his history with Edge but saying they are still brothers really brought up memories, reality and hit something for me. I really liked this a lot, just wish Matt could of at least had a good competitive match with Randy.

My favorite part of Smackdown was Bayley. The starting segment was a little shaky for me but once Bayley came out and cut a heel promo it was really good. I was watching with my brother who thinks wrestling is stupid now but he thought Bayley was awesome. The match itself was really good, Bayley really gives everyone there best matches.

I was a little let down with the Otis and Mandy segment tonight. I was just expecting a little more but I assume we get Zigs vs. Otis next week.

Main event was a solid match but I guess I missed the storytelling and why these men are facing one another.

Smackdown has been a little rough to watch for the last month, but this show did go back easy for me and there was key spots I did enjoy.

NXT Takeover predictions:

Johnny wrestling vs. Finn Prince Balor: I really feel Finn needs this, he can cheat to win but I am taking Finn to get the win. I have enjoyed Finn’s heel work but he needs some wins to be a credible heel.

Teagon vs. Kai: I am going with Kai to win this one. Teagon won the last one and another case for a heel to be credible, Kai needs this more. I also do feel Kai will be the heel to challenge for NXT championship in the future.

Lee vs. Dijakovic: I am taking Lee to retain but for Dijakovic to turn heel.

Tag team championships: I don’t want it to happen but I see undisputed era losing and the tease of era breaking up.

Rhea vs. Bianca: I am taking Charlotte to interview and for this to be a triple threat for Mania.

Cole vs. Chiampa: I am taking Cole retaining. I just feel Finn vs. Cole in an actual feud and title match is the money.

I hope everyone is having a great week. I will get into the Royal Rumble and how it was my favorite in years. I will also talk Raw and NXT this week.

My favorite match at the royal rumble was the women’s royal rumble match, I absolutely fell in love with that match. With seeing Trin back, to Bianca’s magical superstar performance to Charlotte winning her first Rumble, it was really everything. Now if I was dream booking it I would of had Beth win it to face Becky Lynch or have Bianca win it to face Bayley. That’s just me but really it was a perfect Rumble for me. Cannot say enough about Bianca’s performance and how she looked like a main roster, main event star. With that said our winner was Charlotte and honestly I was fine with it. I am not all in on Shayna vs. Becky and Charlotte winning gives her a royal rumble win and helps the 4-horsewomen and her and their legacy.

I also really enjoyed the men’s Rumble. I just loved the storytelling we had this year. I have really been enjoying Drew’s baby face run so far and I feel it is his time and the perfect moment for him to defeat Brock and to have a good long feud with Seth.

Another match I really enjoyed was Asuka vs. Becky. I thought this was Becky’s best match since facing Sasha at hell in a cell.

I have been having a really hard time being invested into Smackdown unless it’s Bayley or Sasha on my TV but Raw has really been my favorite show recently. I loved the opening of Raw and the ending of Raw, both very powerful.

First, Drew’s opening promow as great it didn’t feel scripted and you could really feel his emotion. It was good to see him dominate a match and a good sign to see Brock attack Drew and be invested. Really excited for this match and hoping for it to main event mania.

It was good to see MVP get one last match with WWE, I was really happy to see that.

Char looked good against Asuka but she won the Rumble I would of had her just beat Asuka. Also the Becky promo came off very heelish. If she trying to be Conor she might start getting boos with that swagger. I also liked straight fire Becky better but we will see where this character goes. If she don’t turn heel I feel they need to put title on someone else, she is better at chasing.

I am really hoping to see Liv move on from Lana because she has so much talent in that ring, and oh by the way her finisher is fire.

The ending of Raw was the biggest ending to Raw in a long time. Edge gave a promo that was so deep it got me in tears and Orton made it deeper with him hinting at battling drug problems. Then out of nowhere Orton attacks Edge’s neck. A good believable attack, I am so invested into these two right now.

Really liked NXT this week but have Kai lose her first real match as a heel felt not right for me, would like her to get some wins. Also I am so into Djokovic right now, he is such a huge star and I will never say no to him vs. Lee.

We are going to be having an amazing weekend of wrestling. We have world collide which is gonna give us amazing in ring matches and we have my favorite PPV of the year, the Royal Rumble. I will go over my predictions and go over what I thought of Raw and Smackdown.

My favorite match of this week was Mysterio vs. Andrade, I will never get sick of seeing these two wrestle each other. This was one of my favorite ladder matches I have seen in a long time.

I would of liked this segment with Ricochet and Brock better if Ricochet said he would enter at 2 and see a good competition between them at the beginning. Ricochet is so good and he needs something to give him a spark.

Even though the match ended in no contest Drew vs. Orton I enjoyed and would like to see a detailed feud in the future. I really liked Drew’s promo at the end and like I said last week I’ve really liked Drews babyface turn. I would be all for Drew winning the royal rumble.

I was so happy when Buddy and Rollins won tag titles. Rollins is the man on Raw and he should have some kind of gold and as for Buddy Murphy this is huge for him. I am really happy for Buddy.

This Lashley/Lana/Rusev/Liv storyline has kind of gone out of control. I was never against this story but having Liv and Rusev lose really isn’t doing anything for the story. I am hoping Liv and Rusev can go their seperate ways and be stars outside of this story.

I don’t know if I am just not engaged to what is happening on Smackdown or if the stories are just not strong but Usos and Roman vs. Ziggler, Roode and Corbine I didn’t feel at all.

I liked the promo was Lacey Evans but the crowd kinda took me out of it because I thought I heard boos while she was talking about her father’s passing and being inspirational to other. I really thought she knocked that promo out of the park. I loved the Bayley heel beat down, but I do not want Bayley to drop this. I feel babyface Sasha vs. heel Bayley is money and needs to be booked for this Bayley run to end and mean something. We had another match I wasn’t invested into Braun and Elias against Cesaro and Shinsuke. I really feel Smackdown needs a purpose. Either they are a wrestling show, a storytelling show, they need an identity.

Andrade vs. Humberto: I am taking Andrade for this match and for the feud that ended, continued, will end again at Royal Rumble.

Shorty G vs. Shaemous: I am taking Sheamy, it’s his return should be a dominant win.

Bayley vs. Lacey Evans: I am thinking they take the title of Bayley and put it on Lacey. They seem really high on her and the crowd seems behind her as well.

Mens Rumble: I am taking Drew, I feel it is his time.

Roman vs. Corbin: I am predicting Corbin wins and Roman goes far in the rumble.

Becky vs. Asuka: I am taking Bex, this will be her match to prove she is the best.

Women’s rumble: Taking Ronda or Shayna, they need something big for Becky.

Fiend vs. DB: I want it to be DB but I see Fiend winning again.

Drew has turned baby face and it couldn’t of happened at any better time. Regardless if he wins the Rumble or puts on a good show in the Rumble, we could be getting closer to Drew as WWE Champion. This week I really feel we got to see the real Drew. I am hyped to see more of this and so interested in his baby face run.

I liked seeing Ricochet in action, I really wish they would repackage him or give him a manager.

The Becky and Asuka contract signing was really good. It was simple they signed the contract then we got Asuka using the mist on Becky. Becky really sold that mist and cut an amazing promo. Really looking forward to this match.

Black vs. Murphy was another classic and the ending of Raw was even better. We got Buddy joining Seth Rollins and AOP. So hyped for next week.

I liked the start of Smackdown team hell no reuniting. I really love anything Daniel Bryan does and Kane is one of my favorite older wrestlers.

I liked the segments and match for Bayley vs. Lacey but not all for them pushing Lacey so much and having Bayley lose. Bayley doesn’t get enough credit for how good she is in the ring and how over she gets females that are green and not experienced.

I thought this was one of NXT’s better episodes in the last couple weeks. I really loved the main event women’s battle royal. I really feel all along Bianca should of been the one to beat Shayna but she won the battle royal so hopefully her and Rhea put on a good match. We haven’t had many wrestlers that have been so gifted coming into this sport and learn so fast. I compare Bianca to a Kurt Angle, she just caught on right away, like it was all meant to happen. She is unique, strong, a mega star and could really bring this women’s division to the next level and also show that not only white girls can be champions. She has it all and could help and be a role model for so many girls. The other match on NXT I super loved with Swerve vs. Lio vs. Tyler Breeze. This was an insane match, all men had chemistry and I loved Swerve taking the win. I was so hyped for Kushida and and Shelley teaming, thought they could really go all the way but they had them lose, wasn’t a fan of it.

The kickoff to the Royal Rumble has started and I got to say I really enjoyed all shows this week on WWE television.

On Raw we got Brock and anyone Brock is on a WWE TV you can expect star power. I am very interested in Brock being in the royal rumble match even as being champion. I hope they put his title on the line and whoever wins the royal rumble in the new WWE champion.

My favorite match on Raw was Andrade vs. Mysterio. These two are so damn good in ring and I would like to see more from these two. They have done a really good job getting fans to boo Andrade.

I really loved the tag team action on Raw, but I really thought they missed an opportunity with the new year. Putting it on Street profits would of made the crowd erupt and putting it on the OC would be a good way to show dominance of the OC.

We have been getting small promos and segments to build up Asuka and Becky. I think it could be built better and I was kind of confused with Becky thinking she can’t beat Asuka but cheap shots her. I would like them to bring up her tapping to Asuka more, but match should be good. I just wanted more of a build.

Absolutely love what they are doing with Rowan. We keep getting a little more and more to what is in his cage every week. I’m all for them making him a dominant star right now.

It was good to see Rollins back in action, but the whole Big Show is the surprise did nothing for me.

I thought the opening segment to Smackdown has been there best segment since going to fox. I loved the swerve of Morrison and Miz as baby faces and Morrison just chew up and throw it up at the crowd. Morrison is fire on the mic, I really loved this opening.

Kofi and Miz was an ok match, honestly wasn’t invested and would of loved Kofi vs. Morrison instead but it’s all about the build up. I really enjoyed it.

I do not hate every blonde that has ever wrestled but I do know there is this stereotype and expectation for women to be blonde, tan, tall, white with enhancements so when I see Bliss vs. Mandy It just gives me the divas era feeling and it doesn’t feel good. I do have to say I do like the storyline with Mandy and Otis. I think it’s cute.

Lacey is doing the babyface role very well and Bayley is doing the heel role very well. I’m down to see these two in a title match but I want Bayley to retain. I also liked Bayley’s promo with calling Lacey’s kid as a snot. I know Bayley has been given a lot of criticism but I have enjoyed her character as a heel. I like how she is emo, how she doesn’t care, how she is still doing her same amazing in ring wrestling. Bayley has always been very stiff and rough in the ring and it matches her heel character. Sasha will always have that swagger but I think Sasha losing last week helped Bayley. Bayley didn’t take the pin, Bayley is the champ and Bayley is letting Sasha take the hits for her. Just saying baby face Sasha vs. heel Bayley would be money.

I am not a fan of the Fiend but have to admit I love Daniel Bryan not being afraid and everything he is doing. I really want him to win at Royal Rumble but I know they wanna stick with the Fiend.

Braun defeating the IC champion Shinsuke is a good move. They haven’t been using Shinsuke right and it’s something for Braun to have and defend.

Loved Sheamus backstage promo, cannot wait to see more of him. This is how you elevate someone that was down to the next level. Get some wins, cut some good promos and embrace chaos.

Really loved the promo with Roman and the Usos. I am all for Roman winning the royal rumble, I think it would make a great story and an amazing moment for Roman. I would enjoy 2020 being Roman’s year and by the end of 2020 or 2021 you can go back to a Roman vs. Rollins main eventing mania or a big PPV.

I really enjoyed Raw and Smackdown a lot this week, but Wrestle Kingdom was really just that wrestling that had the psychology and emotion in their wrestling. Just got done with night one and my favorite matches were Will Ospreay vs. Takahashi and Okada vs. Kota. To be honest I haven’t watched NJPW in a year but watching wrestle kingdom that didn’t matter. Sure I missed some things but what NJPW did that AWE didn’t was introduce me to the characters and the changes. It was the most easy wrestling, well booked, amazing wrestling I have seen in a long time. It has that real fight feel along with the feeling that it is okay to have emotion and cry during a emotional moment or match.

I loved both Raw and Smackdown but Smackdown was the show for me this week. I loved the surprises we got, to end the show we got the Usos returning to help Roman and it looks like we are getting a tag team called the bloodline with Tamina who I would love to see more of. A Stable that has a female, now that is something I can get behind. We also had Sheamus returning to attack Shorty G. As much as I liked this return I did feel there was a better way to have him return. A surprise that I really liked though was John Morrison returning to Smackdown. I am so glad he is not going through NXT and this is great because he is with the Miz and Miz seems to be turning heel. So excited for this new story. The women opening the show I enjoyed and as much as Dana and Lacey have improved I didn’t like Sasha taking the pin and I am not excited for her losing to Lacey. I have liked the way Bayley has been booked and I really enjoyed her promo. I like Bayley and Sasha together as heels but I would like Bayley to be treated more like a store booking wise. I have liked the booking and I know it will never be perfect but just let Bayley be herself and use her ideas.

I also enjoyed Raw so let’s dig into what everyone has been complaining about but for some reason is getting great hits in the ratings. The wedding happened and this story may have it’s oh wow that happened or embarrassing moments for some but it’s been a consistent storyline, they haven’t give up on it. They keep adding to it and regardless if this was the plan or not, it’s working. I am a huge Liv Morgan fan and I did like her better with her pink hair and edgy character but I want Liv to have air time and to get a strong storyline so this personally works for me. Another thing on Raw I enjoyed was Randy Orton faking an injury and getting redemption on AJ. I like a baby face kinda doing a heel move, it was really well done and I am all for AJ vs. Randy Orton going into Mania. Street Profits defeating OC to be added into the match I am all for, but I would like OC to become new tag team champions next week, I would love OC to dominate like Undisputed Era does on NXT. As much as people love to hate on Charlotte, her and Natalya had an amazing match on Raw, it was my favorite match on the show. Would love to see Natalya turn heel or even Natalya and Charlotte as a tag team. Descent promo by Becky Lynch, I’m interested in seeing her vs. Asuka. I Just personally need more from Asuka lets bring more up, bring up that Becky tapped to her. I’m not sure how I exactly feel about Becky acting like she cannot beat Asuka but I am willing to roll with it. Last thing that I have been really loving is Seth Rollins. Seth Rollins and AOP have been dominating who they want and now we get Joe and Owens as a team which is also really intriguing, but the thing is I don’t want AOP and Rollins to lose, they need to remain strong with Rollins being the mouthpiece.

With AEW I have enjoyed what they have been doing with Jericho and Sammy, but it does really make me think if Revial doesn’t renew contract them and Jericho together would be legendary. I also think Darby is a star and shouldn’t be losing. I do like him in a Jeff Hardy underdog underground role, but in this generation fans aren’t patient enough for him to keep losing and remain that underdog. The women’s action is still disappointing to me and Britt continuing to lose is not something I understand at all. With that said I will give it a chance and keep watching because I enjoy watching all different kinds of wrestling.

A lot of people were very critical of wrestling this week and over the weekend, but I really enjoyed it. My favorite match at TLC was the main event. I really thought the women brought it all. I know a lot of people said it was sloppy but it was my favorite match on the card.

On Raw my favorite part was Rollins promo and him attacking Mysterio. I would all be for Rollins winning that United States championship. To me Rollins has been saving wrestling for me.

I really liked the OC defeating the Viking Raiders, no one has defeated them yet and I really liked the star to this story.

I’ve been really enjoying Rowan’s squash matches. I am very interested what is in the cage but I am more interested on him becoming a monster.

Great main event with Orton and AJ. I really feel AJ does need some wins here soon though, it is hurting him to lose. On NXT we have Undisputed era with all the gold on RAW I feel we should have AJ as universal champion and OC as tag champions. You could really build that dominant force with all of them winning with the gold.

Asuka having a dominant win was good and Becky Lynch cut an interesting promo. I am very excited to see where these two go from here. It could be a great story.

NXT was certainly my wrestling show of the week. Adam Cole and Finn delivered, but for some reason didn’t feel as special as I thought it should. I did still enjoy it and am excited for who Cole will feud with next.

Preist is so good in ring and such a good character, cannot wait to see more from him.

Kushida one of my favorite wrestlers period lost to Grimes. I am not sure the whole excitment on Grimes but we will see where this goes.

Io and Santana had a great match. Santana is someone I have been having my eye on for years, I am glad she finally made it to WWE. Io on the other hand has the best moonsault in the business and I love seeing it.

Travis Banks is a wrestler in the UK I have been really enjoying on NXT UK. I really hope to see more of him on NXT.

The main event was the most solid women’s match I have seen all year up there with Bex vs. Sasha. Amazing match, amazing story and amazing finish. So happy for Rhea.

Smackdown started out with a good promo from Daniel Bryan. I didn’t so much enjoy the Miz coming out but am intrigued to see where this goes.

Apparently Lana and Dana Brooke aren’t enough, they now need another blonde Mandy trying to get with Otis. I liked Otis and Tucker and thought the match was good for what it is. If Mandy involved with Otis is all for him to get used it may get him over but I am just over cheesy storylines. The best part was after the match Revival cut an amazing promo.

New Day had a great tag team match against Shinsuke and Cesaro. I am really glad Kofi got the win in this one. If I had to pick a wrestler of the year in the mens it would be Kofi.

I loved Bayley getting a solid win over Dana and of course loved my Sasha and Bayley together. I am kinda digging Lacey as a babyface and her working with Dana. Lacey bringing her daughter into this is interesting and I’m glad Sasha didn’t lose her match with Lacey. I am willing to wait to see where this goes. I would really like Revival and Sasha/Bayley to make a stable together, they both don’t get respect for how good they are and they are all really good heels, would love to see it. Both as tag champions again too would be real dope.

I really enjoyed all three shows this week. I just got done watching Smackdown with my Brother and Mom and I will go over that show first as it’s my favorite of the week.

Smackdown was just an easy watching enjoyable show for me. I was absolutely marking out for Kofi’s promo to open Smackdown. This is the way you open up Smackdown. Kofi is such an organic babyface and I really loved everything he said. It really gave me hope that Kofi can be that baby to lift up Smackdown if needed. Speaking of even more amazing, the main event was very strong. I really liked Kofi in the main event, putting on a 5 star match and Roman coming to help out Kofi. I usually don’t like DQ’s but I didn’t want Kofi to lose so I enjoyed this very much.

I enjoy watching Bliss back and I am really into her as a babyface. I am not high on Sonya or Mandy especially as a team so I did like Bliss and Cross getting the win against these two. With that said I liked women having time on TV but they need to be put in stories.

Revival and Ali/Gable didn’t have the longest match of the night but all really displayed why they are so good. I don’t like Ali taking the pin but I do like Revival standing strong. Them vs. New Day at TLC is gonna be fire.

The segment with Bayley, Elias and Dana was really good. This whole promo and segment showed why Bayley is just fine on her own. I still really badly want Bayley vs. Sasha at Wrestlemania but we will see how it goes. Lots of good stuff by Bayley tonight and she didn’t squash Dana but really dominated it and I loved it.

The Bray Wyatt and Miz stuff was top notch amazing. This story came out of nowhere and it is already my favorite storyline of the year. I am really excited for the build up and story more than the match. Really intrigued for TLC.

Heavy Machinery had a good showing but lost to Shinsuke and Cesaro. They have pinned Cesaro so much I would of been fine with it again.

Even though I enjoyed Smackdown the most, I did also enjoy Raw. Raw started out with a storyline that has had mixed reviews. Lana annoys me in the way of go away heat but I thought they nailed the segment really well, but that doesn’t mean I want this story to continue. Hahha.

I really enjoyed everything by the street profits this week. There weekend updated made me laugh so hard watching Raw in bed, I wanna see more of that. I also enjoyed their match with viking raiders. I was fine with them losing and would like to see AOP defeat Raiders soon here.

Humberto and Andrade was my favorite match of the week, I really enjoyed that match. We also get a little story with Andrade angry with Zelina and teasing the break up. I’m intrigued.

We had a couple more matches that built up the talent. You can call it quick matches or squash matches but certain wrestlers cannot lose and this is a good way of displaying it.

The Becky and Kabuki Warriors match was solid and Kari doing a diving elbow to Becky was really cool to see. I also really liked the backstage segments that lead up to Charlotte and Becky agreeing to tagging. This match in my opinion could steal the show. I would love to see Asuka and Kari retain by Charlotte turning on Becky. Becky is finally starting to kind of trusting Charlotte and this would be the perfect opportunity. Besides Asuka, Becky really doesn’t have much competition. I would like to see Charlotte vs. Becky one last time at the royal rumble to truly end this feud.

My favorite part of the week was Rollins officialing turning heel and joining AOP. I am so damn excited for next Monday.

TLC Predictions:

Black vs. Murphy: I am taking Black for this one but Murphy putting on a really good fight.

Women’s tag team championships: This is going to be an amazing match and I am going to go with Charlotte turning on Becky and Asuka/Kari retaining. I really hope so because Becky 2 belts may be too much on Raw with her having not much competition. Heel queen Charlotte would be that spark.

Rusev vs. Lashley: I am taking Lashley to win this one and for this feud to continue.

New Day vs. Revival: This is the match I am looking forward to most. I love both these tag team and my favorite type of a match, ladder. This is going to be so amazing. I am taking New Day retaining.

Bray vs. Miz: I am taking Bray winning this match, but I feel something new may happen with this match. Not sure if it’s Liv Morgan returning, Daniel Bryan returning or Bray doing something different.

Roman vs. Corbin: I am taking Roman winning this match. Let’s end this feud and put Roman next in line to face Bray.

We haven’t had too much build up leading up to TLC which is a PPV that really is a soft spot for me. Growing up watching TLC matches with the Hardy Boyz, I would like this PPV taking like a big one. For me Raw and Smackdown were both puzzling shows this week. Not much story leading up to TLC and lots of filler happening on both shows. The show of the week for me was NXT, I really liked what they are continuing with Dakota Kai and I liked the matches and how everything was booked.

One part I really liked about Smackdown was them starting a storyline with The Miz and The Fiend. I really like how they are bringing Miz’s family into this. I really like how Miz is actually scared of the Fiend but also will do anything to protect his family. This whole angle was done very well.

I am glad to see Bliss back, I have not been her biggest fan in the past and it really didn’t have anything to do with her, it had to do with how they portrayed her. Bliss is very athletic, very good on the mic and can do just about anything they ask her to do. I wouldn’t mind babyface Bliss in a title match feud and I liked her being herself over being Vince’s next Trish. Mandy in my opinion just doesn’t fit in a WWE lifestyle. Sure she looks good, but her in ring, mic work, facials and anything they give just isn’t delivered. Glad Bliss got the win here.

I’m glad Elias is back but I don’t feel a need for Dana and Drake to be involved in this storyline that is almost identical to a Lashley/Rusev storyline on Raw. Just in the way of how they are having a women demoralize a man. I like Elias on his own and thought he could of got a good pop without this very strange storyline.

I love tag team wrestling and tag team action, Revival got the win to face the New Day at TLC. This match I am looking the most forward to. They are my favorite tag team right now and I want them to get those titles back. This match could really be a classic, two of the best in ring tag team wrestlers up there also with the Usos. I also really loved the promo the Revival gave after the match, this is how you use them.

Sasha and Bayley are my girls but the way they are using them with this Lacey storyline isn’t for me. I love Sasha on the mic, just let her do her thing, don’t over script her. Sasha is the star in this, not Lacey. I still really hope Bayley keeps dodging opponents and feeds them all to Sasha, has Sasha take the hits and bumps. Sasha has enough, wins Rumble and faces Bayley at Wrestlemania. I really wanna see that.

The ending of Smackdown really wasn’t for me and if I was Fox honestly would be embarrassed. They poured dog food all over Roman and that’s how the show went off the air, not for me. Corbin and Roman needs to end now, they are hurting Roman so much right now.

Monday Night Raw had it’s moments and one of those moments was Seth Rollins opening Raw. I like how Rollins talks like a babyface but his actions are like a heel, I really like that dynamic. I like the tease of AOP and Seth Rollins together but would like them to pull the trigger at TLC or a PPV or even an ending to a Raw. I want a good cliffhanger and slow burn for Rollins as a heel. I like Owens, but it is hard for me to buy him as a baby face right now. He has gone between baby and heel so much that it’s just hard for me to take this story seriously. Owens is doing great work though, and I would like a match at TLC between these two.

They continued the Lashley/Rusev and Lana storyline. I thought this segment was good, they got arrested instead of Rusev this time. As much as people have complained about this story, it’s a detailed long story, what people been asking for.

I liked the tease of Randy Orton and Drew feuding even though the next obvious feud is Orton and AJ. I liked how they left us with something that was like oh wow that would be really lit.

We got four squash matches on Raw and if this is to rebuild and give talent wins I’m all for it. I just don’t want to see this every week, they have to develop them in a different way and sometimes you have to take loses.

I really liked Charlotte vs. Asuka and Kari. This was a really good match and I know people were complaining but think about this Charlotte has been considered not only the greatest women’s wrestler ever but also the most athletic wrestler in the WWE period at one point. The queen can take down and dominate anyone. She has been doing it for year, this is a good way to bring queen heel dominant Charlotte back.

My favorite show of the week was NXT. NXT is such an easy watch show. Doesn’t have filler, corny storylines and have the best wrestling on the planet. NXT started out with Daine beating Dunn. This was a really good refreshing match. So many matches in AEW, RAW and Smackdown are such high flying spot fest moments and matches. It was refreshing to see phycology tested at it’s best.

This Undisputed Era promo I thought should of opened NXT. This was really good with Keith Lee and Adam Cole, we also have Ciampa and Finn involved in this two. I usually don’t like lots of guys in match, but god I wanna see them all fight at once.

Shayna looked really good dominating Xia and later in the night when she attacked Rhea she looked like that dominant badass. I would really liked Kai joining Shayna’s forces too. Kai looked really good coming down to the ring, her promo backstage, her heel look and her heel actions. This all looked good, all women looked really good. Mia, Kai, Shayna and Rhea. My favorite segment and moment of the week.

Really good to see Kushida back would love to see him go for North American Championship. He’s really good in ring, but curious how they are going to use him.

Really good main event match and I’m glad to see Keith Lee looking strong. I know people bitch about Vince ruins people on main roster but I could really see Keith Lee being a huge star on Raw, I really could. This guy has everything and really looking forward to more from him.
