WWE Women’s Evolution EP21: Two Women In Black,Tag Team Tournament Rages On,Tensions Rage On Between Becky/Rhea& Sasha/Shayna

WOMEN’S EVOLUTION # 21 August 29th

STEPHANIE OPENS THE SHOW

We see a video package of last week with the woman in black in the ring and Naomi getting knocked out. Stephanie McMahon is in the ring with Tamina and Rhea Ripley. She has her security squad with her.

Stephanie: I am not even going to talk about it. Charlotte Flair get out here.

We hear a pause and Shayna Baszler and Paul Heyman come out to the ring.

Stephanie: Paul what are you doing out here?

Heyman: It appears there are some things going on in this ring that I want to be present for.

Stephanie: And what would that be?

Heyman: For starters, The Queen of Spades and I are here to find out if Rhea Ripley is going to blow her title shot and challenge my champion.

Stephanie: Is that all?

Heyman: No. I am also out here to get a front-row seat to see Charlotte Flair’s answer to the questions you are going to ask her. But before we get to Ric’s daughter what is the status on Asuka and will Rhea Ripley be wasting her title shot against Shayna Baszler?

Shayna and Rhea are nose to nose.

Stephanie: I will have an update on Asuka’s condition later tonight.

Heyman: That’s good.

Sasha Banks music plays and she hits the ring and goes right after Shayna. But security stops her and pulls her out of the ring.

Heyman: There is no need to hold her back. The Queen of Spades is getting tired of this quitter always sticking her nose in our business.

Stephanie: Sasha you need to cool off. Why are you out here?

Sasha: I want Shayna one on one without any interference from any of her girlfriends.

Heyman: Stephanie give her what she wants.

Stephanie: No one runs this show but me. Sasha, you are still looking for another title match with Shayna. Why should I give you anything?

The crowd boos

Stephanie: I am going to make you earn another title shot. Tonight you will go one on one with Jessamyn Duke. And Paul just so that there is no confusion Shayna Baszler is barred from ringside for this match.

Heyman: There she goes the chew toy trying to make daddy happy.

Stephanie: Sasha does that make you happy?

Sasha: For now.

Stephanie: One more thing Paul. Since Marina Shafir is not busy tonight. I am booking her tonight too.

Heyman: Against who?

Stephanie: She will be facing Queen Rhea Ripley.

Charlotte Flair’s music hits and she is standing on the ramp.

Stephanie: Charlotte I am getting really tired of this. Last week the woman in black appears in the ring and helps you win the match and then disappears. And you are going to tell me you have no idea who she is?

Charlotte: That is what I am saying. I told you I was not the woman in black and you saw it for your own eyes.

Stephanie: Why is she helping you win a match?

Charlotte: I don’t know.

Heyman: Ric’s daughter no one believes you. I told you last week if you don’t admit you are the woman in black my Horsewomen will take matters into their own hands.

Charlotte: I am not afraid of them. I am not afraid of anyone.

Heyman: Oh yes we saw the new Charlotte Flair last week. The New Charlotte is vicious and is going to take out the whole locker room.

Stephanie: Shut up Paul. I am going to handle this.

Heyman: Oh I feel so much better now. Stephanie McMahon is going to handle this. How are you going to handle this chew toy?

Stephanie: Watch it Paul. Charlotte. Tonight in the main event it will be Charlotte Flair against Team VBB and Tamina.

Charlotte stares at Stephanie and nods her head and starts to walk away.

Stephanie: Charlotte one more thing.

Stephanie instructs a female security guard to leave the ring area and walk to Charlotte.

Stephanie: This member of my security squad has been assigned to you for the night. Where ever you go she goes. If you go to the bathroom she will be close by. We are going to get to the bottom of the mystery tonight.

Renee: Stephanie wants this done tonight.

Paige: Stephanie is not playing any games.

SKY PIRATES VS NATALYA & NIKKI CROSS

The Sky Pirates win and advance to the second round of the tag team tournament when Kairi Sane hits Natalya with an insane elbow.

CHARLY CARUSO WITH FIRE & DESIRE

Charly: I am standing here with Mandy Rose and Sonya DeVille also known as Fire & Desire. Mandy. Sonya. How does it feel to be a tag team again?

Mandy: It feels great. Sonya and I had some problems. We fixed them now. Sometimes you fight with the people you love the most.

Sonya: Charles we are stronger than ever and ready to make an impact in this division.

Charly: You are facing the IIconics tonight in the Tag Team Tournament. Last week they were taunting you.

Mandy: That is okay. A lot of people have a lot of things to say.

Sonya: And we will have to see a lot of people to collect.

Charly: You mean like Charlotte Flair.

Mandy: Now that you mention her name….

Sonya: Mandy we have other things to take care of first. And we are getting that tag team title shot.

Renee: Mandy and Sonya are really focused tonight.

Paige: Next we have Sasha Banks vs Jessamyn Duke

Renee: And Shayna Baszler is not allowed at ringside.

Sasha hits a bank stabber on Jessamyn and rolls it into the bank statement. Jessamyn taps out. Shayna hits the ring and attacks Sasha immediately after the match.

Renee: Shayna is supposed to be barred from the match.

Paige: The match is over and Sasha is fair game.

Shayna and Sasha start to brawl all over the outside of the ring and into the crowd. They are hitting each other with chairs and anything else they can find. This brawl continues into the backstage area before it gets broken up.

Renee: Sasha and Shayna just don’t like each other.

Paige: This has gone way beyond being personal.

KAYLA BRAXTON WITH ALEXA BLISS & ZELINA VEGA

Kayla: I am here with Alexa Bliss and Zelina Vega. Tonight you face Carmella and Bayley in the tag team tournament. Alexa, how are you focusing after losing the TV Title?

Alexa: Can you believe what Stephanie McMahon did last week? Just because I was smarter than her. I will have a talk with Stephanie McMahon about that. She will make it right.

Zelina: Alexa we have a tag team match tonight and that should be our main concern.

Alexa: I don’t know what Stephanie is thinking.

Kayla: What about your tag team match tonight?

Alexa: Besides Zelina knows what the deal is and who is the leader of this team is.

Zelina gets angry

Zelina: We have a tag team match tonight. You better get your mind focused on Carmella and Bayley and off my TV Title.

Alexa stares at Zelina as she walks away.

Renee: Alexa is not focused on Baymella.

Paige: She better get her head straight.

Carmella: Just listen to that name. BAYMELLA. That sounds so good to be reunited with my homegirl Bayley.

Bayley: I like that too. And Charly this is a great night for us. Not only are we back together again we also get in the ring with two women who are owed beat downs from us.

Carmella: That’s right huuuunnnyyyyy. Alexa and Zelina you played right into our trap. And it could not have worked out better.

Bayley: Alexa you better get your head off that TV title and on Baymella. Otherwise, this will be a long night for you.

Carmella: Oh and once we win this tag team tournament and win the Women’s tag team titles one of us is coming for that TV title hunnnnyyyy.

Charly: Baymella is ready for action.

EMBER MOON VS SARAH LOGAN

Sarah Logan is in the ring with Liv Morgan as Ember Moon comes down to the ring with Naomi. Ember and Sarah have a great 12-minute match. Ember wins with an eclipse.

CHARLY CARUSO WITH CHARLOTTE FLAIR

Charly: Charlotte Flair once again Stephanie McMahon has stacked the deck against you.

Charlotte starts laughing.

Charlotte: Stacked the deck? That is an understatement. I have this security guard following me around tonight.

Charly: We have been here before and I have asked you if you are….

Charlotte cuts Charly off.

Charlotte: Stop right there. I have been saying this for a few weeks now. I am not the woman in black. Last week that was proven. But Stephanie McMahon does not believe me. Paul Heyman does not believe me. That is why I did what I did last week.

Charly: By taking it out on Alexa Bliss and Zelina Vega and Baymella. You certainly won’t get any friends that way.

Charlotte: Everyone hates me anyway. This way there is a real reason to hate me.

Charly: Tonight you are facing three of Stephanie’s crew. Clearly, this won’t be a fair fight.

Charlotte: You think. Maybe Stephanie thinks the woman in black is watching my back.

Charly: Is she?

Charlotte stares at Charly and walks away.

KAYLA BRAXTON WITH SASHA BANKS

Kayla: Sasha can you comment on what happened tonight with Shayna Baszler?

Paige: And as we saw before Alexa and Zelina might not be on the same page right now.

After seven minutes of action, Zelina knocks Carmella out of the ring to the floor. Zelina taunts Bayley while Alexa roughs up Carmella on the outside.

Stephanie: Asuka’s representative just called me and said Asuka will be here next week to discuss her physical condition.

Heyman: And who is this representative.?

Stephanie: That is none of your concern.

Heyman: This whole thing stinks of another McMahon screw job.

Stephanie: If that all you have? I am very busy tonight.

Heyman: Stephanie I hope you have this under control tonight. Since you led my tag team into impossible situations.

Stephanie: That is funny Paul since your Horsewomen regularly interfere in matches. But this is none of your concern.

Heyman: I beg to differ with you. Everyone in this division needs an end to this woman in black crap.

Stephanie: If you ask the women in this division the Horsewomen are just as big a problem as the women in black is.

Heyman: Stephanie I think you need some help to resolve this problem.

Stephanie: I think you need to worry about the Sasha Banks problem you have. And as we just saw Rhea Ripley lay waste to Marina Shafir. Maybe your Horsewomen need some help.

Heyman: Oh really Stephanie. Well I am going to tell you one thing. If you can’t handle Charlotte tonight then the Horsewomen will take care of it ourselves.

KAYLA BRAXTON WITH BECKY LYNCH

Kayla: Becky can I get a word with you?

Becky: I know what you are going to ask me. And Yes I am damn happy I gave Rhea a taste of her own medicine tonight. If you attack me then I am going to fight back.

Kayla: Don’t you think you got yourself involved in business that was not yours?

Becky: Charly. Asuka has my title. If Rhea wants that title she will have to deal with me. I will slap her head right off her shoulders. If Stephanie is not going to give me a title shot then I am going to break Rhea’s arm so she can’t wrestle Asuka at Clash Of Champions

Kayla: Stephanie McMahon won’t stand for this.

Becky: Let me tell you something about Stephanie. She can’t be trusted ever. Look at the mess this division is becoming because of that plank.

Kayla: Maybe you should not say these things about your boss.

Becky: Boy would I love to get that dope Stephanie in the ring just once. I will make her go away.

Kayla: You can’t be serious

Becky: Do I look serious.

Becky walks away

Paige: Becky needs to watch what she says.

Renee: It’s time for our main event and Charlotte Flair is facing three women.

Paige: Will we see the woman in black tonight?

CHARLOTTE FLAIR VS TAMINA & TEAM VBB

Tamina and VBB are in the ring with Stephanie McMahon outside the ring. Charlotte comes out to the ring.

Renee: This is going to be a setup. How can Charlotte beat three women?

Paige: Don’t forget Stephanie McMahon is lurking outside.

Charlotte is up against great odds tonight. Every time Charlotte starts to get momentum there is outside interference. Dana Brooke throws Charlotte outside the ring. Tamina drops off the apron and starts to beat on Charlotte. Tamina rolls Charlotte back into the ring. Dana and Lana start to double team Charlotte again. You can hear Stephanie on the outside yelling at Charlotte.

Stephanie: Where is the woman in black now.

Renee: Bad enough Charlotte is getting triple-teamed she has to deal with Stephanie and her mouth on the outside.

The double team continues until Charlotte gets an advantage. Charlotte escapes a double team as Lana was holding her and Dana ran to give her a clothesline. When Charlotte ducked Dana knocked Lana out of the ring to the floor. Tamina and Stephanie run over to check on her. Charlotte gives Dana a kick to her face.

Renee: Oh my god.

The lights come on and there is the woman in black.

Paige: There is the woman in black

Charlotte looks at her and the lights go out again. When the lights come back on there is a second woman in black with a chair in her hand.

Renee: What is going on? Two women in black.

Charlotte looks stunned and does not know what to do. The lights go out again and when they come on there is one woman in black on the mat in the ring and the other one gone.

Renee: I am so confused.

Charlotte goes over to the woman in black and pulls her mask off and it is Lacey Evans.

Paige: Lacey Evans is the woman in black?

Renee: Then who was the other one?

Stephanie now gets in the ring with Tamina and Lana. They start to beat on Charlotte until the referee calls for the bell for a DQ. Lacey gets up and joins in beating up Charlotte.

Renee: It’s four on one now and we still don’t know who the woman in black is.

We see a camera in the back showing Heyman watching the match on a monitor.

Heyman: Someone is playing games. We will see who wants to play my games next week.

WWE WOMEN’S EVOLUTION MONEY IN THE BANK EDITION

WOMEN’S EVOLUTION MONEY IN THE BANK PAY PER VIEW

At this time I don’t plan on having all women’s pay per views.  Maybe I will do one or two during the year. But for now, I will have my pay per views when WWE has them in real life.

My match order for tonight:

Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch vs Bayley

Women’s Money In The Bank Match

Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch vs Shayna Baszler

SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPION Becky Lynch vs Bayley

Stephanie is at ringside with Tamina for this match. This was a good match. Not much bending of the rules. Becky would be the aggressor then Bayley was the aggressor. Several near pin falls for each. Stephanie ordered Tamina to give Bayley the advantage. Bayley did not seem pleased.  This was a very physical match and Bayley legit got close to winning several times. Tamina trips up Becky as she goes off the ropes and Bayley takes advantage. After giving Becky a stunner off the ropes she gets Becky in the Guillotine Choke wearing her down. Becky does not submit but was hurt.  Bayley gives Becky an exploder suplex followed by a second back suplex.

Bayley then  locks Becky in a scissored Arm-bar.  Bayley stomps Becky’s head while she has this hold in. Becky is hurting and needs to do something big, Bayley goes to the top rope and comes down with a macho man elbow and Becky reverses it and puts Bayley in the disarmer and Bayley taps out.

RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION Becky Lynch vs Shayna Baszler

Paul Heyman comes out with Shayna Baszler. Becky limps out to the ring obviously hurting from a physical match with Bayley. Baszler goes on the attack immediately. Backing Becky into the corner with punches and kicks to Becky’s midsection. Baszler arm drags Becky to the match and goes for the twisted arm stomp. Baszler had Becky well scouted and wants to eliminate the Disarmher from the match by damaging her arm. Baszler with a Fujiwara armbar then is on the mat really trying to break her arm. Becky is hurt but won’t tap out. Baszler is working Becky all over and puts her in a stretch muffler. Becky still won’t tap out.  Becky finally gets some offense in kicking Baszler in the gut several times. Becky throws Baszler into the ropes and gives her a high knee to the jaw.

Whips Becky into the ropes and gives Becky a fireman’s carry takedown.  Baszler drops a leg across Becky’s chest and goes for the pin but Becky kicks out. Baszler puts Becky in the Cross arm breaker submission hold and Becky just will not tap out.  Heyman is screaming from the outside for Becky to tap out saying Baszler is going to break your arm. Becky gets to the ropes after a while of being in that hold. Baszler puts Becky in a Kirifuda Driver into a submission hold but again Becky does not give up. Baszler stands Becky up and goes for a suplex but Becky reverses and rolls up Baszler and gets a 2 and a half count. Baszler kicks out. Baszler is now getting frustrated yelling at Becky to just lose already. The fans are screaming Becky’s name and she is trying to feed off the crowd. Becky tries to kick Baszler but she catches her leg.  Than Becky gives her an Enzugiri. She puts Baszler in the corner and using the ropes to spring her body kicks Baszler in the side several times. This could be Becky’s last chance here as the damage her body has taken tonight has worn her down. Becky does manager to ger Baszler into a Cross arm breaker.  Becky gets up and whips Baszler off the ropes and gives her a dropkick. Picks up Baszler and gives her a pump handle side slam. Becky goes off the top rope and leg drops Baszler and puts her in the disarmher. Heyman gets on the ring apron in front of Becky and Baszler gets up and drives a knee into her back.

WWE WOMEN’S EVOLUTION

ALL FEMALE WEEKLY TV SHOW

WOMEN’S EVOLUTION # 6 May 14 TH

SEGMENT 1

Paige: Welcome to Women’s Evolution. We have a great night ahead of us as we are just days away from the Money In The Bank PPV.

Renee: That’s right. We have a very Special Moment Of Bliss with all 7 participants in the Money In the Bank Ladder match.

Paige: Speaking about the Money in the Bank Ladder match the last spot will be determined tonight in a gauntlet match. If Charlotte Flair does not win the match she will be fired from the WWE. To make matters worse she is the first participant in the Gauntlet match. We will have an exclusive interview with later Charlotte tonight.

Paige: We also have Becky Lynch facing two women tonight.  We thought both Stephanie McMahon and Paul Heyman were going to pick one wrestler for the match with Becky.

Renee: After what happened last week we found out that if Shayna Baszler wins the match against Bayley, Paul Heyman will pick both participants.

Paige: And if Bayley wins, Stephanie McMahon gets to pick the participants. And that match is happening right now.

Shayna Baszler comes out with Paul Heyman. Heyman grabs a mic.

Heyman: Hello my name is, well you know the rest. After what happened last week my client has not slept just waiting to get her hands on Bayley. And once she defeats Bayley boy oh boy do I have a surprise for Becky Lynch and the rest of that locker room.  They say when someone is dead and buried they come back stronger. Stephanie you are going to regret well a lot of things. Good luck tonight. (Paulie laughs)

Bayley comes out with Stephanie McMahon.

The match starts with Baszler all over Bayley.

We go to our first commercial break

SEGMENT 2

Baszler has had her way with Bayley. Whenever Bayley gets on the offensive Baszler uses her power to regain control. Bayley goes on a little flurry and gives Baszler a Belly to Bayley and goes for the pin but Baszler kicks out. Baszler gets the advantage and gives Bayley a gut wrench suplex. Then gets Bayley in the Kirifuda Driver into a submission for the win.  Very good showing by Bayley in this match.

Kayla Braxton interviews Becky Lynch

Kayla: Becky Lynch are you worried about who Paul Heyman is going to pick to face you tonight?

Becky: You know Kayla, Heyman, and Stephanie are playing this game with each other and some of us here are getting caught up in this. I know this is some kind of set up by Paulie or Stephanie or both. I never back down from a fight Kayla and tonight will be no different.  So Paulie bring on the two dopes you have lined up for me.

Kayla: This is shaping up to be a very emotional night. Do you have any thoughts on the Charlotte Flair situation?

Becky: Yeah. Good luck.

We go to our second commercial break

SEGMENT 3

A Moment Of Bliss begins with Alexa Bliss coming out to the ring. Then one by one all the participants in the Money In The Bank match start to come out. Naomi followed by Asuka followed by Mandy Rose followed by Sonya Deville followed by Lacey Evans and lastly Carmella.

Alexa: Look what we have here. Six women who know they are not winning the Money in The Bank Match and me the one who will win the match for the second straight year.

Naomi: Alexa you better watch your mouth. You don’t have the numbers game here.

Alexa: (looks at Naomi)Yeah Rainbow Brite what color are we glowing today? Whatever happened to that tag team called Fabulous Glow with you and that Staten Island Bimbo? (Carmella gets mad and charges towards Bliss but Naomi cuts her off) Let her go, Naomi.  How much dye did you put in that hair to make it blonde?

Carmella: I am a two-time winner of the Money In The Bank Match match.

Alexa: (Cuts her off) You needed that ugly pathetic James Ellsworth to help you win twice. Is that the only man you can get? (Carmella starts to get even more annoyed) I mean look at this collection of “Ladies” in this ring.  Yes, even you the “Sassy Southern Belle.” You don’t have that pirate Asuka to help you win tonight.

Lacey: I don’t need any of these nasties to help me win.

Mandy: Who are you calling nasty?

Alexa: Your not going to have Sonya to save you on Sunday night.

Mandy: Who says I need Sonya to save me. Besides we are a team. And we always will be

Naomi: (Cuts Mandy off) Just like you were last week.

Mandy: Sonya are you going to let her talk that way about us.

Sonya: Mandy are you afraid to get your hands dirty? (Mandy stares at Sonya)

Alexa: Do I need to get you guys some doughnuts? Look at your waist.  I think Mandy has had too many doughnuts. Maybe Asuka can give her some Chinese food.

Asuka:(gets in Alexa’s face) I am not Chinese. I am Japanese.

Lacey: A Japanese nasty.

Alexa: Asuka are you going to let her get away with that? Lacey, she did kick you in the face last week. (Asuka and Lacey stare at each other)

Carmella: Hang on everybody. Do you see what Alexa is trying to do? She wants us all against each other so we forget about her. I say we just eliminate her right now and make this Money In The Bank Match one less person huuunnnyyy.

Alexa: What language is that? Besides Naomi said you’re the reason why Fabulous Glow lost in the Elimination Chamber.(Carmella looks at Naomi)

Carmella: What?

Alexa: Naomi. Carmella said you were not concentrating that night because you had marital problems.

Naomi: Marital Problems?

Alexa: I see you two have things to talk about. Kind of like “Fire & Desire.” (Alexa laughing) What kind of name for a tag team is that? Unlike you Mandy I don’t need anyone to help me win matches. Sonya, she is keeping you down. She told me she feels bad for you. She only keeps you around so you feel important. (Mandy drifts to the back of the corner of the ring) See she knows what she says about you. (Sonya looks at Mandy)

Sonya: Mandy what is she talking about?

Mandy: Sonya why would you believe anything she says?

Alexa: Sonya how was that beating Beth Phoenix gave you? You know the one that was meant for Mandy. God’s Greatest Creation huh. God’s Greatest Backstabber.

Alexa: It’s not my fault you all are flawed women. I mean look at you all.  Mandy uses Sonya all the time. Carmella and Naomi blame each other for their pathetic failed tag team attempt. Asuka is Korean or whatever she is and you(Looks at Lacey) are a Southern whore.

Lacey goes to kick Alexa but she ducks and Asuka gets kicked by accident.  She falls into Naomi who bumps Carmella from behind and they start fighting. Asuka and Lacey start throwing punches.  Alexa slithers out of the ring and looks up to Mandy. Alexa walks toward her Mandy and she backs up and knocks into Sonya.  Sonya starts beating on Mandy.  All the girls are fighting with each other as Alexa looks on from the ramp laughing.

We go to our third commercial break.

SEGMENT 4

Video Package of Charlotte Flair is shown to the crowd.

Charly Caruso Interviews Charlotte Flair

Charly: Charlotte what are your thoughts about going into this match knowing it can be your last match ever in the WWE?

Charlotte: Everyone says I am entitled because I am Ric Flair’s daughter. But what I have had to go through the last few weeks because of Stephanie McMahon and Paul Heyman is totally unfair.

Charly: So your mad and feel this is unfair?

Charlotte: Charly what do you think?

Charly: Have you thought about it? This could be your last night in the WWE.

Charlotte: Of course I have. 8 title reigns. The most by any women in history. Main eventing Wrestlemania. Hell In The Cell, Royal Rumble and I can go on and on. This is what I was born to do. This is what I love to do. I know I might not have a lot of friends in this locker room. We are all competing for the same spots and titles. I did what I needed to do to win. I have tried very hard to be respectful of all the women in the locker room. But I am Ric Flair’s daughter. I can’t change that. I have made mistakes as we all have. (Charlotte pauses and takes a deep breath.) I wouldn’t change anything either.

Becky Lynch walks by.

Charlotte: Are you here to gloat?

Becky: Charlotte I am not you. I find this sad.

Charlotte: I don’t need your pity.

Becky: Charlotte have you ever wondered why you don’t have any friends around here?

Charlotte: You don’t have any friends either.

Becky: But at least I have the respect from the others in this locker room. You know something this could surprise you. But I do feel bad for you.

Charlotte: Yeah right. Now you can rule the world like you always wanted to do.

Becky: You don’t get it. We have had our issues.  It’s no secret we don’t like each other. We have brought down the house together one on one. Stephanie and Paul Heyman are using you in their crazy one on one game. They are trying to draw me into that game too. I mean this when I say it. Good luck tonight. I hope you win. (sticks out her fist towards Charlotte and they bump fists) Believe it or not, we have not written our final chapter yet.

We go to our fourth commercial break.

SEGMENT 5

Becky Lynch comes out to the ring.

Paul Heyman comes out to the ring.

Heyman: Hello champ champ.

Becky: Where are my opponents?

Heyman: I would not be so eager if I were you. When I came to this show I had a purpose. It was to avenge a certain female superstar who built this division to a height that it had never seen before. Then she got abused and thrown away after she delivered. (Looks at Becky.) Don’t worry.  (Heyman points to the back) Ronda Rousey is not going to come out from the back to this ring. Do you remember this? Heyman sticks out the 4 fingers. There are 4 you know. Ronda is one and we just saw the second one destroy Bayley earlier tonight.  Now it’s time to formally put this division on notice.  Here are your opponents. Outcomes Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke. Heyman is laughing hysterically.

Paige: Oh My God. This division is never going to be the same.

Renee: I am speechless.

Marina and Jassamyn storm the ring.

Marina and Jessamyn start to work over Becky.

We go to our fifth commercial break.

SEGMENT 6

The match continues as Becky is getting worked over pretty good. Becky goes on the offense a bit but when she gets a little advantage the double team starts up again. Becky is trying to get a quick cover to avoid the double teams. After knocking Jessamyn out of the ring she gets Marina in the Disarmher. Jessamyn comes into the ring and starts to hit on Becky. The match is ruled a no contest as Marina and Jessamyn start to double team Becky and leave her laying. Afterwards, Heyman, Marina, and Jessamyn stick up the 4 fingers.

Renee: It was obvious that Heyman just wanted to send a message to Becky tonight. I hope Becky will be ok for the PPV this coming Sunday. Paul Heyman has definitely taken control of this division.

Paige: Up next is the Gauntlet match and this could be Charlotte Flair’s last match ever in the WWE.

Charlotte comes out first and Ruby Riott comes out next.

Renee: Paige what would be Charlotte’s strategy in a match like this?

Paige: Charlotte would have to beat 5 women same as Ruby.  So a quick victory would be helpful. Charlotte has the Figure 8 which could be very helpful.

The match starts as we head into the commercial break.

We go to our sixth commercial break.

SEGMENT 7

Charlotte beats Ruby in 10 minutes with the Figure 8 in a very physical match.

Next comes out Natalya

We go to our seventh commercial break.

SEGMENT 10

Renee: Charlotte has only one person left.

Stephanie McMahon’s music hits and out she comes with Tamina

Paige: This is so wrong. Charlotte is exhausted.

Tamina and Stephanie rough up Charlotte.  Stephanie gets a chair and gives it to Tamina. Stephanie is holding Charlotte as Tamina goes to hit her with the chair. Charlotte kicks the chair into Tamina’s face and she goes down. She snapmares Stephanie over her shoulder. Charlotte grabs the chair and works over Tamina knocking her to the outside. She puts Stephanie in the Figure 8 and she starts to tap out.

Renee: Why doesn’t the referee get control or give the win to Charlotte by DQ.

Paige: Tamina is not a legal member of this match and this is a no DQ match.

Renee: Charlotte is not letting go of the Figure 8. Charlotte is letting go of a lot of frustration on Stephanie McMahon.

We hear Zelina Vega’s music hit.

Renee: Oh No. It’s going to be 2 on 1 and Charlotte has wrestled 4 matches already.

Outcomes Zelina and Charlotte says bring it on. Charlotte is exhausted.  Tamina is outside the ring on the floor as is Stephanie but she is grabbing at her knee still feeling the effects of the Figure 8. Zelina starts taking it to a tired Charlotte. Every time Charlotte hits a big move she can’t follow up. Zelina puts Charlotte in a modified Camel Clutch. Zelina hits a neckbreaker on the middle rope then climbs to the top rope to drop an elbow on Charlotte but she moves. Charlotte can barely stand but gets to her feet first and as Zelina is getting up she takes out her knee. Charlotte takes control and is about to get Zelina in the figure 8 when Tamina comes into the ring and hits Charlotte from behind.  She gives Charlotte a Samoan drop. Tamina picks up Charlotte and rests her against the ropes. Tamina goes off the ropes and is charging at Charlotte.  Charlotte drops at the last second grabbing the top rope as Tamina goes flying over and hits the floor.  Charlotte is getting up but so is Zelina.

Stephanie has her mouth open and can’t believe Charlotte won the match.

Renee: Yes. Carmella saves Charlotte

Paige: Carmella gives Charlotte the assist. Charlotte is going to the Money In The Bank.

WWE WOMEN’S EVOLUTION

WOMEN’S EVOLUTION TV SHOW EPISODE # 5 May 8TH

SEGMENT 1

Contract signing

Stephanie McMahon opens the show in the ring.  There is a table and 3 chairs.

Stephanie: In 11 days at Money in The Bank we will have another first for our women’s division.  Becky Lynch “The Man” will be defending both the Raw and Smackdown’s Women’s Championship belts in two separate matches.  First, let’s introduce the challengers.  Bayley.

We hear Bayley’s music and she comes out to the ring.

Stephanie: Next we have “The Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler.

We hear Baszler’s music and she comes out to the ring with Paul Heyman.

Stephanie: Now ladies and gentleman your Raw and Smackdown Champion Women’s champion “The Man” Becky Lynch.

Becky’s music hits and out comes Becky. All three wrestlers look at each other before sitting down.

Stephanie: Thank you all for coming and let’s hope we can be civil here during this contract signing.

Heyman: Stephanie do you mean my client?  Is the Queen of Spades and the next Raw Women’s Champion not civil?

Stephanie: Paulie why do you always make everything about you? (Heyman laughs)

Becky: Why am I even here? You two dopes come out here every week and argue like children. I am ready to sign.

Heyman: Champ Champ I would not be so eager to sign contracts. Your Raw title reign is coming to an end. You might still have the Smackdown title by the end of the night. That is until my client comes to get it.

Stephanie: There you go again Paulie. You think you got this all figured out.

Bayley: Just maybe Paulie I will have the Smackdown title and your client will have nothing.

Becky: Or maybe I knock all of your heads off your shoulders.

Heyman: Becky. You have no idea what your dealing with.

Becky: Hey Heyman does your client ever talk for herself or does she wear the pants in your partnership.

Heyman: Oh Becky how I enjoy your humor. My client is not here to play games.

Stephanie: Paul I don’t know who you think you are. Shayna Baszler I guess is unbeatable and maybe we all should just give her both titles and go home. (Bayley Laughs)

Heyman: My client prefers to beat up her opponents and not be given anything.

Becky: I came from nothing. I had to fight and (Heyman cuts her off)

Heyman: Please Becky not this story again. We are all a little tired of hearing it. Maybe my client should kick you in the face to shut you up just like she did to Bayley last week. Why don’t you ask Bayley what happens when you mess with my client.

Becky: Boy would I love to see Shayna vs Bayley.

Stephanie: I bet you would.  Becky are you afraid to fight Bayley at full strength?

Heyman: Yeah because Bayley can’t hurt my client. (Bayley and Stephanie get mad and Bayley and Shayne have a stare down)

Becky: I see a good match here. Stephanie why don’t you let me run this show.

Stephanie: Becky, would you like to see Bayley vs Shayna next week? WWE Universe would you like to see Bayley vs Shayna next week? (The fans cheer loudly) Then next week it will be Bayley vs Shayna. Becky’s Money In The Bank opponents going head to head.

Becky: This ought to be fun.

Stephanie: Hang on there Champ. It would only be fair if you also have to wrestle next week.

Becky: Bring it on.

Heyman: Stephanie might I make a suggestion?

Stephanie: Paul do you always have to talk?

Heyman: Stephanie I think you’re going to like this one.

Stephanie: (Stephanie looks at Heyman in anticipation) Go ahead.

Heyman: I think in the true spirit of this. Since Becky is wrestling two different opponents at Money In The Bank then she should have to wrestle two opponents next week in the same match in a handicap match.

Stephanie: Paul I like it.

Becky: Bring it on. I don’t care who my opponents are.

Heyman: You might regret that.

Becky signs the contracts and the segment ends.

Paige: Wow. Next week is going to be crazy.

Renee: I am surprised we didn’t see any fireworks during this contract signing.  Tonight we have Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville vs VBB.

Paige: We also have Lacey Evans vs Alexa Bliss. And we have the IIconics defending their tag team titles against the Sky Pirates.

We go to our first commercial break

SEGMENT 2

Naomi vs Alicia.  Naomi wins pretty easily as she gets ready for the Money In The Bank Match.

Kayla Braxton interviews Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville

Mandy: Issues? We have no issues.  Sisters fight sometimes.

Kayla: So you guys had a fight?

Sonya: Kayla, Mandy and I are totally fine. We are on the same page.

Mandy: Besides Kayla. One of us is going to win the Money in The Bank Match and the title will be with Fire and Desire.

VBB is in the ring already and outcomes Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.

We go to our second commercial break

SEGMENT 3

Back from the commercial break, the match has started.

VBB wins as Mandy and Sonya collide while Sonya was standing on the ring apron.  Dana pins Mandy.

Stephanie McMahon is in the ring with an announcement regarding Money in The Bank Match

We go to our third commercial break.

SEGMENT 4

Stephanie: As everyone knows Money in The Bank is less than 2 weeks away and we still have one spot left.  We have had 7 qualifying matches already and I wanted to do something special with this last spot.  I was thinking hard about this and I have to come to one exciting conclusion.  So would the following women’s superstars please come to the ring? Natalya, Zelina Vega, Ember Moon, Nikki Cross and Ruby Riott. (All females come to the ring) I brought you all out here because you lost your Money in The Bank qualifying match. I am going to give all of you another chance to qualify for the Money in The Bank match. Next week there will be a gauntlet match with the winner getting the last spot in the Money in The Bank Match. (The wrestlers get excited in the ring)

Charlotte’s music hits and out she comes to the ring.

Charlotte: Stephanie are you serious. Are you really serious? A gauntlet match with these women? And the Queen is not invited.

Stephanie: Charlotte how many chances do you want?  You lost at WrestleMania. You lost last week against Bayley. Why should I give you another shot?

Charlotte: When you asked me to take out Ronda I did.  You promised me a championship opportunity and you backed out.  I want to know what is the issue you have with me.

Stephanie: You were handpicked by my father to win the match at WrestleMania. And you didn’t deliver. Why should we reward you?

Charlotte: I am a little confused here I thought you screwed over Ronda.  So you should have no issue with me.

Stephanie: Charlotte we did that because we didn’t fully trust you.  Look around this ring and look in the back.  This division is stacked with talent and we don’t need you.  We didn’t need Ronda and we don’t need Becky.

Charlotte: Really? So you need the Shemale? (looking at Moon). You need someone who is old and washed up (looking at Natalya). You need a tattooed freak? (looking at Ruby). (looks at Nikki Cross) I don’t even know what that is.

Natalya: (Grabs the mic from Charlotte) You need to watch what you say because there are 5 people in this ring that don’t like you.

Ember: We are sick and tired of you getting all the opportunities.

Charlotte: That’s because I earn them. I take them. And if I couldn’t beat any of you I would retire.

Stephanie: You would? Did I hear you right?

Charlotte: Yes you did.

Stephanie: I got an idea. If you want in the Gauntlet match your in. Under one condition. If you lose the Gauntlet match your WWE career is over. (Charlotte looks concerned) You just said you could beat any of these women.  So here is your chance to prove it.

Charlotte: (Looks around) I smell a setup.  But the queen accepts.

Stephanie: One other thing I forgot to tell you. You will have a match tonight. If you lose the match you will be the first entry in the gauntlet match.

Charlotte: Who is my opponent or is this going to be another mystery opponent.

Stephanie: I am going to go in the back and find something special for this big match. I hope you’re ready. Stephanie’s music hits as we go to commercial break

We go to our fourth commercial break.

SEGMENT 5

Nikki Cross and Mickie James are in the ring as we come back from commercial break.  We are waiting for the Riott Squad.

Charly Caruso interviews Paul Heyman and Stephanie McMahon

Stephanie: Yes I have.  Charlotte I hope you are ready.  Your opponent will be Bayley!!

Heyman: And Shayna Baszler. (Paulie is laughing)

Stephanie: And this will be a no disqualification match.

Charly: What two wrestlers will be facing Becky Lynch next week?

Heyman: Stephanie and I have decided that each of us will select one wrestler to face Becky Lynch. We will let you know who that wrestler is next week. (Heyman starts laughing)

Renee: Oh my god. I don’t like the looks of this for Charlotte. And Becky

Paige: We could be seeing the end of Charlotte Flair in the WWE.

The Riott squad is in the ring and Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan are working well together.  We see a much more vicious Logan in this match. Riott Squad wins cleanly.

We go to our fifth commercial break.

SEGMENT 6

Ember Moon vs Zelina. Good match.  Ember wins in a hard fought match.

Charly interviews Charlotte

Charly: Charlotte can I get your reaction to facing Shayna Baszler and Bayley in a no disqualification match.

Charlotte: You want my reaction? (Charlotte raises her voice) You want my reaction Charly? Stephanie continues to stack the deck against me and now Paul Heyman wants to get involved. (Charlotte shakes her head up and down) If they want a fight then they will get one.

We go to our sixth commercial break.

SEGMENT 7

Kayla Interviews Lacey Evans

Kayla: Lacey what is your mindset going into your match with Alexa Bliss.

Lacey: Alexa Bliss is a little troll who lays with pigs. What kind of lady has a pet pig?

Kayla: You have been insulting every woman that has crossed your path. What is your goal?

Lacey: I need to teach these so-called women how to act like a lady. Alexa your first lesson is tonight.

Sky Pirates are in the ring without Asuka

Paige: The Sky Pirates told Asuka to stay in the back because they wanted to win this match alone.

Out come the IIconics

We go to our seventh commercial break.

SEGMENT 8

Sky Pirates have dominated this match with the only offense IIconics have been able to mount has been by double teams. Sky Pirates have had several close pinfalls. Peyton and Billie keep rolling out of the ring to frustrate the Sky Pirates. Kairi hits a running DDT on Billie Kay. Then a Tokyo slam. Kairi hits the Insane elbow then puts the Anchor on Billie. Peyton runs into the ring to bait Io in.  Billie is tapping out but the ref does not see it. Kairi looks around and sees the ref arguing with Peyton and Io. She releases the hold on Billie and goes after Peyton. Billie rolls out of the ring. Kairi and Io double team Peyton.  Io lands a moonsault on Peyton and covers her for the win and new champions. Paige and Renee on commentary immediately say on air that Billie was the legal man in the ring and the ref got confused. Peyton is arguing this too as the Sky Pirates are celebrating with the titles.  A second ref comes down and tells the original ref what happened. The Sky Pirates already went up the ramp and the ref rules the match a no contest.

Charly Caruso interviews Mandy Rose

Charly: Mandy what happened out there tonight?

Mandy: I am not sure why Sonya was in the way. I was about to win the match and Sonya got in the way.

Charly: Got in the way?

Mandy: Yes. I thought we were on the same page. (Sonya walks by)

Sonya: You get pinned and once again it’s my fault. (Mandy walks away)

Charly: Sonya? (Sonya walks the opposite way)

Paige: It looks like the problems continue for Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.

Carmella’s music hits and she joins the commentary team.

Paige: Welcome Carmella.

Carmella: Hello Paige and Renee huuunnnyy.

Renee: I noticed you’re still limping around. How is your knee? Will you be 100 percent by Money In The Bank?

Carmella: Mella will be money once again.

Lacey’s music hits and out she comes

We go to our eighth commercial break.

SEGMENT 9

Alexa’s music hits and Lacey goes out of the ring at her.  Both are brawling as the match gets into the ring.

Lacey gets the upper hand early on but Bliss fights back. Lacey hits the woman’s right to Alexa. Lacey then goes over to yell at Carmella and asks her how is the knee feeling? The ref jumps out of the ring and walks towards Carmella to keep the peace. Bliss gets to her feet and Asuka comes into the ring and superkicks Bliss and she is out. Asuka then slides out of the ring and hides. Evans turns around and does a moonsault on Alexa for the pin. Now she taunts Carmella again and tells her to get in the ring so she can finish the job. Asuka sneaks back into the ring and goes behind Lacey. Carmella starts to laugh and says look behind you. Lacey turns around and Asuka gives her a running knee knocking Lacey out of the ring in front of Carmella.  As Lacey stands up Carmella all of the sudden shows she was playing possum and superkicks Lacey before walking to the back.

Kayla interviews Paul Heyman.

Kayla: Paulie is there any way your client Shayna Baszler can co-exist with Bayley for one night?

Heyman: Kayla my client the Queen Of Spades is all about business.  We have a plan and a purpose here and we are going to stick with it.

Kayla: Last week Shayna Baszler kicked Bayley. Do you think Bayley will try to get even with your client?

Heyman: If Bayley knew what was good for her she will stay out of my client’s way.  Bayley will have to deal with my client next week.

We go to our ninth commercial break.

SEGMENT 10

Paige: Next week on A Moment of Bliss we will have all 7 participants in the Money in the Bank match.  That should be interesting.

Renee: Also we have the two women who are teaming up in the main event tonight going one on one in Shayna Baszler and Bayley. Also Becky Lynch will be in action against two women.

Paige: Not to mention we will have the Gauntlet match to determine the last entry in the Money In The Bank Match.

Shayna Baszler comes down to the ring with Paul Heyman followed by Bayley and Stephanie McMahon.

Outcomes Charlotte Flair.

The match is really a 2 on 1 with Bayley and Shayna double teaming Charlotte. After several minutes Shayna and Bayley start to argue with each other. Shayna throws Charlotte out of the ring and starts to fight with Bayley. Shayna DDT’s Bayley as Charlotte goes under the ring and grabs a kendo stick. She goes back in the ring and starts to beat Shayna with the kendo stick. Paul Heyman goes under the ring and finds another Kendo stick as Stephanie baits Charlotte from the outside. Heyman hands the kendo stick to Shayna and they start exchanging shots. Bayley gets up and goes after Shayna and finds herself in the middle of a kendo stick crossfire. Both Charlotte and Shayna are swinging the kendo sticks wildly hitting each other and Bayley. Bayley falls down and rolls out of the ring. Stephanie hands a metal pipe to Bayley. Charlotte’s kendo stick has splintered down to nothing. Charlotte has been worn down from getting double teamed and Shayna is going in for the kill now. Shayna hits the ropes but Bayley grabs at her legs and pulls her out of the ring and hits her in the midsection with the pipe. Bayley slides into the ring and a dazed Charlotte goes for a last grasp spear.  Bayley sidesteps her and she hits the post hard. Bayley is sizing her up as Shayna starts to get back into the ring.  Bayley runs and hits Charlotte across the jaw with the pipe knocking her out cold. Shayna charges at Bayley. Bayley at the last second sees her and hits Shayna in the head with the pipe. Shayna falls on top of Charlotte and the ref counts out Charlotte. Paul Heyman has a stunned look on his face. Stephanie comes into the ring as Bayley is standing with one foot on Shayna who is out cold on top of Charlotte who is also out cold as the show ends.

WWE WOMANS TV SHOW

NO LIMITS EPISODE # 4 May 1st

SEGMENT 1

Paul Heyman opens the show with Shayna Baszler in the ring.

Heyman: My name is Paul Heyman.  Looks around and smiles.  And I am the representative for your Queen Of Spades Shayna Baszler. There is only one thing for me to say.  Have we got your attention now?  If you need a refresher of what my client Shayna Baszler has done the last two weeks please look at the screen.  (Video shows Shayna laying waste to Charlotte twice and also Tamina) Now, what’s next for my client.  Is there someone else she can beat up? (Paulie rubbing his head then smiles) OOH, How about Becky two belts?  The champ champ The Man or whatever else she is calling herself these days.  Maybe it’s time to go after the top dog.  That’s if she is finished playing with the puppies in this division.

Becky’s music plays and out she comes.

Becky: You know Paulie you come out here with this dope and you say a lot of stuff.  You have a problem with Charlotte and you rough her up.  Big deal I already did that.  You then go after the McMahon family. Big deal I already did that.  Now, this Queen of Spades wants a piece of me.  I will slap her head right off her should(Paulie cuts her off)

Paulie: You better watch your tone with my client. Let’s not make promises you can’t keep.  You see when you and Charlotte took out our friend Ronda Rousey you woke up something inside of my client.  The fire is always burning inside.  But now gasoline has been poured all over it. My client is angry and let me assure you that you can’t handle the fire my client will bring.  Shayna Baszler does not need anyone’s help.  Believe me.  Have you been watching the last two weeks?  Have you seen what my client is capable of.  You have been swimming in the shallow side of the pool.  My client resides in the deep end.  Do you dare to swim with the sharks?

Becky: Your friend was the baddest woman on the planet and I not only beat her but took her out. (paulie interrupts again)

Paulie: Uhh Champ Champ the whole world saw that Ronda’s shoulders were up.  You beat nobody.  Stephanie McMahon screwed over Ronda Rousey.  So this whole character you have built for yourself is only a lie.

Becky: Laughs well I got these two belts around my waist.  But it’s typical of you and everybody else to try to take that moment away from me.  I will defend these belts any time any where any place.

Paulie: I really hope you mean it because we are here to officially challenge you for those belts at the Money In The Bank Pay Per View.  Are you game?  Prove to my client that you are the Man and not Raggedy Ann.

Becky: I accept.

We hear Stephanie McMahon’s music and she comes out but stays on the ramp.

Stephanie: I hate to break up this party but neither of you have the power to make matches.  Paulie this is not the ECW.  And we know what you did to that company.  What makes you think you can just make your own matches.

Paulie: Stephanie the PPV is coming up and why isn’t our champion booked to defend her title?  Didn’t we already prove to you that we mean business? Or do we need to set another example?

Stephanie: Set another example? Just who do you think you are?  I can have your client taken out whenever I want.

Paulie: Oh really.  Stephanie if you could have you would have done it last week.  But we are here for business.  And my client wants those championship belts.

Becky: You know I am standing right here.  And I am getting sick and tired of people trying to take away my mom(Stephanie interrupts Becky)

Stephanie: Becky this is about Paulie and me so but out. (Becky gets mad and yells toward Stephanie)

Paulie: If you need me to book this for you then I will.  Becky Lynch has two belts.  So I say she has to defend each belt in separate matches.  One vs my client and the other one vs whoever you want.  Becky says she is a fighting champion.  Let her prove it.

Stephanie: For once Paulie you have a good idea.

Becky:  Bring it on.  I fought hard to get these titles.  Just imagine how hard I will fight to keep them.

Paulie: My client is requesting to get the first match against Becky.  Just so there are no excuses.

Becky: I never make excuses about anything.

Stephanie: Is that what you want?  Is this what the WWE Universe wants?  We will have Becky Lynch vs Shayna Baszlar for the Raw’s Women’s Championship.  And for the Smackdown Women’s Championship, it will be Becky Lynch vs(Stephanie starts to think about it.)  Before Stephanie can name a person we see Charlotte’s face on the titantron.

Charlotte: Stop right there.  Just stop right there. Stephanie, I hope you’re not going to screw me over again. I never lost my title at Wrestlemania.  That’s my rematch

Becky: There she goes Ric’s daughter feeling entitled again. Stephanie how many more times do I have to beat this dope.

Stephanie: Charlotte you expect me to give you a title match after what you have been doing to me?

Charlotte: What I have been doing to you? I have been getting screwed over since Wrestlemania. You know it’s the right thing to do.  I am the Queen. You owe me.

Paulie: My client is the Queen slayer.

Charlotte: My father never liked you Paulie(Paulie starts laughing) Stephanie I am the Queen of this woman’s division.  Little Becky is just borrowing my championship belt

Stephanie: I am not just going to give you a world title match.  So here is what I am going to do.  If you can win your match later on tonight you will challenge Becky Lynch for the Smackdown’s women title at Money In The Bank.

Charlotte: Who is my opponent?

Paulie: Don’t look at my client.  She has already earned a title shot.

Charlotte: Who is my opponent?

Stephanie: You will find out later tonight.  One other thing.  Paulie if Shayna Baszler gets involved during the match she will lose her title shot.

Paulie: Now your finally thinking Stephanie.  We already got what we want.

Becky and Shayna get into a stare down before Becky’s music plays.

Paige: What a night we have in store for you.  As we just heard Charlotte Flair will be facing a mystery opponent with the winner facing Becky Lynch at Money In The Bank for the Smackdown Women’s Title.

Renee: And Shayna Baszler will be facing Becky at the PPV for the Raw’s Women’s title.  Double duty for The Man at Money In The Bank.

Paige: When you want to be The Man and hold both titles then you need to defend both belts.  Becky might have bitten off more than she can chew. Tonight we have in a Money In The Bank Qualifying match Naomi vs Ruby Riott.  We also will have two participants in the Money In The Bank match going one on one when The Princess of Staten Island Carmella faces off against the Sassy Southern Belle Lacey Evans.

Renee:  I can’t wait to see that match.  Also after the events of last week’s matches, we have two matches set for tonight.  Mandy Rose will be facing off against Ember Moon.  We saw last week Mandy Rose getting involved and costing Ember Moon the match against her tag team partner Sonya Deville.  Also, Sonya Deville gets to pay for the sins of Mandy Rose and faces off against Beth Phoenix.

Paige: We also have VBB off their first win last week taking on Mickie James and Nikki Cross.  We also have the IIconics defending their tag team titles against from what we have been told one of the best women’s tag teams in the world.

Renee: Wow that sounds exciting.  Also in a Moment of Bliss we have the Sky Pirates with Asuka.  Get ready for another action packed show.

Charly is in the back with Naomi

Charly: Naomi how are you feeling going into one of the biggest matches of your career.

Naomi: Charles I am feeling great tonight.  I am ready.  I want to taste that championship belt once again and this is the first step.  Ruby Riott get ready to Feel The Glow.

We see Sonya Deville in the ring.  Outcomes Beth Phoenix with Natalya.  Beth Phoenix is in charge.  Sonya takes control for a couple of minutes trying to cut down Beth at the legs.  Beth recovers and whips Sonya into the ropes and clotheslines her.  Picks her up and body slams her.  Gets her up and delivers a Glam Slam for the win.

In the locker room, we see the Riott Squad.  There are definitely some issues here.

Ruby: Ok things got a little out of control last week.  I really need both of you by my side tonight.

Sarah: That’s ok.  I am going to sit this one out.  You said you didn’t need us to win.  Prove it.

Liv: (looking concerned) Sarah we have been through so much.  All three of us.  We all said some things we didn’t mean.  Let’s all apologize and put it behind us. Ruby(Liv looks at Ruby) Sarah(Liv looks at Sarah)

Ruby and Sarah just stare at each other.

Ruby: I have a match to get ready for.

Liv and Sarah start talking as we head back to the ring.

In the ring is Mickie James and Nikki Cross and their opponents VBB.  The match starts as Lana and Dana are double teaming Mickie. Lana keeps baiting Nikki to get into the ring while Dana goes to work on Mickie.  Finally Mickie makes the tag and Nikki comes in wild flooring both members of VBB. Nikki charges at Dana and she misses and hits the ring post hard.  Mickie runs into the ring and Lana takes her out of the ring and they start brawling.  Dana gets the pin on Nikki using her tights as leverage. Winner VBB.

We see Charly Caruso in the back with Carmella.

Charly: Carmella you are the first ever woman to win the Money In The Bank Match.  Tonight what are your thoughts on facing one of your opponents in the match Lacey Evans.

Carmella: Money In The Bank is a few weeks away and I need to get my mind right for this most dangerous match.  And as you know I won this match twice so I know how to win.  Zelina Vega watch your back because you won’t know when I am coming but I am coming huuunnnny.

Charly: Your thoughts on Lacey Evans tonight.  Lacey interrupts the interview.

Carmella: I am surprised you didn’t hit me from behind like you always do huuunnnnyyyy.

Lacey: Are you speaking English. A lady never talks like that.  But you are from Staten Island and we know what kind of trash comes from Staten Island.

Carmella: It’s time someone whips your ass

Lacey: I have seen this movie before sugar.  Lady (points to herself) (Then points to Carmella) and the Tramp.

Carmella: (gets right into Lacey’s face) I will see you in the ring.

The IIconics are defending their titles next.

Charly is backstage with Charlotte Flair.

Charly: Charlotte what are your thoughts about your match tonight?

Charlotte: People say I am entitled.  But this is the second time I am having a match to get a title shot where my opponent is a mystery.  I guess I am so good that I need to be at a disadvantage.

Charly: Are you concerned about Shayna Baszler interfering in your match.

Charlotte: I hope I do see her tonight.  I have to settle a score with her.  (Charlotte looks around) Seems like I have a lot of scores to settle around here. (Charlotte walks away)

Paige: Things are getting freaky backstage.

IIconics are in the ring with a local jobber team.  IIconics grab the mic

Peyton: The IIconics are fighting champions and tonight we will prove it by beating the best Japanese tag team in the world.

Billie: After all, we are International treasures.  Once we win this match tonight this moment will become

Billie & Peyton: IICONIC

IIconics win the match in 2 minutes.

Charly with VBB

Charly: Dana Lana you guys have won 2 straight matches how do you feel.

Dana: All I wanted was a chance.  This is my life and I have given my life to this business.  Lana feels the same way as I do.  We are just two ladies who wanted a chance to compete.

Lana: I have done everything asked of me and I still wasn’t given anything.  Dana and I just decided to take what we want.

We see Mandy Rose walking towards the ring. Ember Moon comes out for a match with Mandy Rose.  Ember starts taking the fight to Mandy hitting her with chops and knees. Ember keeps yelling you want to get involved in my matches.  You want to rob me of my title chance.  Mandy gets an advantage by poking Ember’s eye.  Mandy snapmares Ember by her hair.  This gets Ember enraged.  She regains the advantage and pummels Mandy for a few minutes before winning the match with the Eclipse.

We see Stephanie McMahon in the back talking to someone we can’t see.

Stephanie: I have faith in you.  I know you are going to win this match and face Becky Lynch.  Don’t worry about anything.  I got your back

A Moment Of Bliss starts as Alexa Bliss comes out to the ring.

Alexa: Welcome to A Moment Of Bliss.  And my guests today have made a big impact at No Limits.  Please welcome Asuka and the Sky Pirates Kairi Sane and Io Sharai.

The 3 Japanese stars make their way to the ring.

Alexa: Welcome to A Moment Of Bliss.  Who is the Leader of this group?

Asuka: We don’t have a leader.

Alexa: Excuse me.

Kairi: We have no leader

Alexa: I am sorry I don’t understand what you are saying

Asuka: Are you making fun of us

Alexa: Not at all I like Chinese people.

Io: (Talking very loudly) We are from Japan, not China

Alexa: Okay my mistake.  So Kairi.  They call you the Pirate Princess.  Asuka you’re the Empress of tomorrow and Io what are you?

Io: Genius Of The Sky

Alexa: I am sorry I don’t speak Korean.

Io: It’s Japanese (Alexa laughs) Is something funny to you?

Alexa: This is my show and I ask the questions.

Kairi: So ask us a question.

Alexa: The IIconics.  You seem to have something going on with the IIconics.  Don’t you think it’s unfair there are 3 of you and only 2 of them?

Io: We don’t cheat.

Alexa: Please answer the question.  (Io looks confused and Alexa sighs) You three can’t talk.  Now you can’t hear.  I seriously need to talk to my agent about booking better guests.

Asuka: You know something you have a big mouth. Maybe I will shut you up during the Money In The Bank Match. Or maybe I can just shut you up now. (The three of them start to surround Alexa) What do you have to say about that?

Alexa: (Points to something) Duck

Suddenly the IIconics appear and Billie Kicks Io in the face and Peyton kicks Kairi in the face and Alexa kicks Asuka in the face. They start to pummel each one before kicking them out of the ring. Bliss picks up the mic

Alexa: And that ends A Moment Of Bliss

We see Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan in the back

Liv: Are you going ringside for Ruby’s match?

Sarah: No. She said she can handle it by herself.

Liv: We are a group.

Sarah: You can go if you want.  I am staying right here.

We go to our sixth commercial break.

SEGMENT 7

Ruby Riott comes out to the ring alone.

We see Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville in the locker room.

Mandy: Where were you when Ember Moon was savagely attacking me.

Sonya: Mandy it’s always about you.  I had to deal with Beth Phoenix because of you.  Where were you when I needed you.

Mandy: I had a match to get ready for.

Sonya: Really.  I see where this is going.

Mandy: (looking upset now)I am sorry.  We are better together than apart.  Besides (Mandy looks around) seeing how things are going around here we all could use someone to watch our back.  Mandy sticks out her hand.

Sonya: (Thinks about it then sticks her hand out) Okay.  We cool.  But at Money In The Bank, it’s every woman for herself.  Mandy walks away.

Feel the Glow starts to play and outcomes Naomi.

The match starts with Ruby gaining the early advantage. Naomi starts to fight back.  Liv Morgan starts to come out to the ring.  Sarah comes out and grabs her and both watch the match from the top of the ramp.  Naomi hits a high knee to the jaw stunning Ruby.  Then Naomi hits a rear view and a split legged moon salt for the pin.  After the match, Liv goes to the ring to console Ruby.  Sarah goes back to the locker room.

We see Carmella warming up for her match.

Carmella heads out to the ring first followed by Lacey.  We see both wrestlers sizing each other up before one makes a move.  They lock up and Lacey shows her power.  Carmella relies on her speed to keep Lacey off balance.  Lacey backs Carmella into the corner and yells I need to teach you some manners.  Carmella kicks her in the gut. (We see Zelina Vega watching the match on TV in the locker room) This match goes back and forth and is very physical.  Lacey lands a kick to the back of the knee hurting Carmella.  Lacey gets Carmella outside the ring and rams her knee into the ring post twice.  Carmella is grabbing her knee when the referee orders Lacey back in the ring and attends to Carmela’s knee.  Lacey is walking around the ring saying Carmella needs to be taught manners.  Carmella makes her way to her feet and Lacey runs at her and slides to try to kick her.  Carmella catches her leg and bends Lacey’s body and she catches her throat on the bottom rope.  Carmella makes her way back in the ring still favoring her knee.  She whips Lacey into the turnbuckle but collapses.  The ref again is checking her knee.  Lacey sees Alexa Bliss come up on the apron and Lacey lunges for her.  Alexa ducks and rams a shoulder to her gut through the ropes then snaps her head on the top rope dazing Lacey. Carmella staggers behind Lacey and rolls her up for the pin.  Carmella quickly rolls out of the ring grabbing her knee.  Carmella wins and Lacey looks at Alexa.  Alexa smiles and laughs at Lacey.  Lacey asks for a microphone and challenges Alexa to a match next week.

Paige:  We have been told that Alexa Bliss has accepted Lacey Evans’ challenge and that match will happen next week.

Renee: Also Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville are back on the same page and will be facing VBB.

Becky Lynch has joined the commentary team for this match.

Paige: Welcome champ

Becky:  Thanks I am glad to be here

Renee: Hi Becky.  Can I ask you if you have any concerns about having 2 matches at Money In The Bank plus having to worry about the winner of the briefcase.  You could lose both belts.

Becky: I know I got a big bullseye on my back.  I am ready to take on all challengers.

Outcomes Charlotte Flair to the ring and she is waiting for her opponent.  We hear Stephanie’s music play and she comes out to ringside. Charlotte grabs a mic

Charlotte: Hey Stephanie where is your mystery opponent.  I’m waiting.  (Stephanie just smiles) Then Charlotte points at Becky and says: Looks like you got another bodyguard.

Becky: This dope better worry about her opponent and not The Man.

Paige: Do you know who the opponent is?

Becky: Doesn’t matter neither one is beating me.

Then we hear Bayley’s music hit.  Charlotte looks at the ramp and is ready to fight.  Bayley comes through the crowd and sneaks up behind Charlotte and attacks her.  Bayley knocks Charlotte to the mat and is stomping her.  This is as vicious a Bayley as we have ever seen.  Bayley is really roughing up Charlotte.  Bayley puts Charlotte in a headlock and is punching her head repeatedly.  Bayley hits the ropes and dropkicks Charlotte who was sitting on the mat.  Bayley goes for a pin and gets a two count.  Bayley picks up Charlotte and kicks her in the gut then Belly to Bayley.  Two count.  After a few minutes, Charlotte starts to go on offense.  Charlotte screams in anger and starts chopping and kicking Bayley as she is in the corner. Charlotte gets Bayley and gives her a backbreaker then an exploder suplex.  She goes for the figure 8 and Bayley rolls out of the ring.  Charlotte goes after her and clotheslines her from behind.  Bayley goes into the announce table. Becky gets up to get out of the way.  Charlotte is squaring up for the Queen’s boot but Bayley ducks and she hits Becky by accident knocking her down.  Stephanie stands up and Charlotte turns to go after her.  Bayley from behind plants a knee in Charlotte’s back and she goes flying into the ring post.  The referee is trying to get this match back in the ring.  Bayley rolls into the ring.  Becky gets up and looks at Charlotte who has made her way to her feet and superkicks her in the face.  Becky rolls her into the ring.  Bayley picks up Charlotte and gives her an exploder suplex.  Bayley to the top rope and drops an elbow on Charlotte and gets a two count.  Stephanie is now standing by ringside and yelling to Bayley to finish her off.  Bayley picks up Charlotte and jumps on her back and puts a sleeper hold on her.  Charlotte drops a backpack stunner on Bayley.  Quickly she puts Bayley in the figure 8.  Bayley can’t reach the ropes.  Stephanie hops on the ring apron to distract the referee.  Charlotte is frustrated and runs towards Stephanie.  She goes to kick her off the apron and Stephanie pulls the ref in the way.  The ref is knocked out.  Bayley has rolled to the outside.  Stephanie drops to the floor and Charlotte follows her and is chasing her around the outside.  Just as Charlotte is about to pass by Bayley, who now has a chair, she smashes it into Charlotte’s face knocking her out cold.  Bayley puts her in the ring and Stephanie gets the ref to wake up and see that Bayley has covered Charlotte.  The ref counts 3 and Bayley is going to Money In The Bank to challenge Becky for the Smackdown’s Women Championship.  Becky gets in the ring and is holding up both belts staring at Becky.  Out of nowhere, Shayna Baszler drops Becky with a kick.  Bayley just looks at Shayna and starts to walk slowly to her and Baszler drops Bayley too as the show ends.

Wrestling Blog 3-17

I don’t usually blog more than once a week but with Wrestlemania coming up there is a lot of things to talk about like the potential or expected card and other happenings.  I would like to say I read a lot of web pages to find out what is going on.  I do not have a source on the inside of WWE so what I blog about is based on what I read online which may or may not be true.  My opinion is based on what I see on TV and on the various social media outlets.

WWE Superstars are now regularly building their story lines by using Twitter and Instagram.  Since the WWE is heavily followed on these platforms it makes perfect sense for the company to encourage the superstars to get their angles and stories lit through social media.  One billion follows are definitely an inflated number when you realistically look at it but still I do believe that WWE has the most followers overall of any sport, entity or company.  It’s like free publicity or TV time for all the talent to get their stories told.  Plus, you have instant fan reactions all day long.

I read something today about Ronda Rousey taking time off after Wrestlemania for whatever reason it is rumored this time.  The first rumor was she wanted to start a family and if that is the case who knows when she will be back if ever.  Now there is a different reason floating around.  According to the internet she is going away for a long time after Wrestlemania because the fans turned on her.  I have said this before and I will keep saying it until everyone realizes what is really going on in my eyes.

Ronda Rousey owes absolutely nothing to the WWE, the WWE Superstars and the WWE Universe.  She has accomplished everything the WWE has wanted her to do and more.  She has made the WWE a lot of money.  She has brought a new wave of fans to the product further expanding the reach of the WWE brand.  And she has brought a new attitude and intensity to the women’s division that was never there before.  If you watch the Total Divas and Total Bellas shows you know this is true. The way the other women who are on that show talk about her confirms that.  Plus, she has a great friendship with Charlotte Flair among others.  But with that Ronda is not a WWE Superstar.  She is a MMA fighter who might not totally get what the WWE does.

The reason I say that is if she is truly mad that the fans turned on her then she totally does not get what the WWE is all about.  To be a great WWE Superstar you need the fans to react to you either positively or negatively.  The negative part obviously has to be where they don’t tune you out and ignore your segments, your promos and your matches.

Ronda came in as a face and she should have never been a face.  Although I do understand why the WWE did that.  But flipping the roster between being a heel to a face is not an un common thing.  Even the immortal Hulk Hogan was a heel and a face.  Even the two golden boys Roman Reigns and John Cena get booed like a heel while never actually being a heel character.  Okay you can certainly make the case that when The Shield made their debut they were heels working behind the scenes with Paul Heyman against Ryback who was definitely a face.  But Ronda when the fans turn on you and still are interested in your character and story line you are most definitely over.

Ronda must not really get what this business is.  It’s Sports Entertainment and this is what happens when your character is over with the fans.  Maybe she can’t separate the two.  Look at Charlotte Flair.  She is playing a heel right now but she is the female face of the company.  She is the one who talked at the Wrestlemania 36 press conference and not the other women who sat front row and only got a mention.  Sure there was meet and greets after the press conference but only the people who were there got to see that.  Flair might get booed on TV but in public she is cheered.  That is what the WWE is all about.

Now Ronda’s a heel and she should have been a heel all along.  This is what she is good at.  Things change in the WWE all the time.  Ronda was signed for a lot of reasons.  One reason was to main event Wrestlemania 35 against Charlotte Flair with Flair being the heel.  The emergence of Becky Lynch was unexpected and the WWE needed to change things on the fly.  You never know how the fans are going to react to an angle or a promo.  A lot of times it’s how that Superstar sells it.

The WWE would not allow Ronda to go on you tube and break down the walls and spill the secrets like she did without the WWE’s blessing.  You know this to be true because after she initially did it she was allowed to go on TV and continue saying the same thing.  Maybe she acted on her own the first time.  I don’t know that answer.  But she definitely has created a lot of steam for someone like Dana Brooke.  This angle Dana is in now could have saved her WWE career.  Someone like me who was not a Dana Brooke fan before but I now find myself rooting for her to succeed.  I loved how she came to the ring without a lot of makeup and just opened herself up to the world.  Dana jumped on the coat tails of Ronda’s comments and now is running on her own for at least one week.  She will have a match against Ronda on the next Monday Night Raw.  While she won’t win the match she could further develop her bond with the fans by putting on a good performance.  I must also say Ronda has put over a lot of the women already in matches.  Let’s be real.  Ronda is a real fighter who could probably legit hurt any woman on the roster very easily.

I am trying to figure out if Ronda is just selling the angle or is she just really mad that the fans who once cheered her are now turning on her.  Sometimes telling the truth is all you need to get over.  It worked for Dana Brooke.  Ronda’s last few promos have all been true.  She does not need the WWE.  If you don’t think Ronda has bank, then you are not paying attention.  She had bank before taking one cent of the WWE’s money.  Yes, Ronda was a little harsh in her promo.  Maybe she was given some freedom to speak as her weak spot has been how she delivers her promos.  Her line that the WWE pays you just enough money that you love the good life but not enough that you can walk away.  So the other women need the WWE’s money.  Ronda does not.

I don’t believe one word of her leaving after Wrestlemania.  I do think Becky wins the title by pinning Charlotte so Ronda keeps her mystique of not technically losing the match.  Maybe she does take a few weeks off.  If the reports were true that she is the highest paid female performer on the roster she has earned every bit of it.  Unlike Brock Lesnar who never shows up and never defends the title.  Ronda shows up every week.  Maybe not to house shows but she doesn’t need to.  It’s also clear to me that the influence of FOX and what they want the WWE product to be is being instilled.  Fox wants Ronda on their shows.  If Ronda is really just selling this angle and deep down inside loves this business, then she stays.

Speaking of social media furthering a story line there has been nothing but insults thrown back and forth between Carmella and Zelina Vega.  We have regularly seen Zelina interfere in her business partner Andrade’s matches but when you mess with R Truth you have to deal with Carmella who has quickly came to the aid of her tag team partner.  At Fastlane there was almost a cat fight between the two during the kickoff show.  Now Zelina has attacked Mella on Twitter.  In true Staten Island fashion Mella has fought back and I can’t wait to we see a one on one match between the two.

Nia Jax and Beth Phoenix also are trading insults on Twitter.  Nia was telling the hall of famer to stay retired and not block another talented woman from getting her chance.  The Glamazon is not having any of that and said I will see you on Monday.  I hope Beth’s return is only as a tag team.  I do not want to see a one on one match between these two at Wrestlemania.

Do you still don’t think we need a women’s weekly show?  Do you really think Carmella and Zelina want to be valets every week?  The fact that the Twitter wars are only happening between the women’s division, how do we not showcase these ladies every week.  I had asked for a two-hour show but in reality when you look at the amount of time the women got on TV during last week’s Raw and Smackdown Live an hour and a half show would be like winning the lottery.

Let’s examine the spots and the amount of time:

Monday Night Raw

Ronda/Dana segment:  8 minutes

A Moment Of Bliss: 4 minutes

Lacey Evans/Nia Jax & Tamina/Nattie & Beth Phoenix/Sasha & Bayley: 5 minutes

Smackdown Live

Asuka/Mandy Rose/Sonya Deville leading into the IIconics promo: 8 minutes

Becky Lynch/Charlotte Flair after 2 minutes of dead time where we saw yet another recap of Ronda’s promo from the night before 9 minutes.

I won’t count Carmella and Zelina as they were only relevant for 5 seconds of the tag team match.  We didn’t even see R Truth and Carmella get introduced first so no dance break and no rap from Mella as we saw last week on Smackdown Live.  Seeing Carmella is the highlight of Smackdown.  This match was later on the show which leads me to believe something ran longer than expected before hand or they wanted to make sure there was more than enough time for the New Day/Vince McMahon segment.

We won’t count Lana who was in the corner of Rusev for the 8-man tag team match.  She barely got camera time and was not involved in the match.

What is interesting to me is that they ran the Asuka vs Sonya match immediately into the IIconics promo directly into the Becky and Charlotte promo.  It’s like they said let’s bunch together the women to get them on the show so we can move on.  The Asuka vs Sonya match did nothing but further along the split of Sonya and Mandy.  In the process we saw the continued burying of the Smackdown’s Women’s Champion Asuka who is too talented of a performer to get treated like this.  Asuka has no build for her Wrestlemania match only to be a side piece to the Mandy/Sonia split.  There is no reason why that match couldn’t be 10 minutes of great wrestling with the same ending.

Now we hear rumors that Lacey could be added to that match but she did her cat walk on Raw this week and not Smackdown when she had been doing double duty for over a month now.

The Nattie vs Nia match barely got off the ground as 30 seconds in Beth jumped into the ring and hit Nia after Tamina held Nattie’s legs.  Beth clears house and my oh my what a great set up this was.  Well not really.  The second Nia and Tamina get to the back stage area, Sasha and Bayley attack them.

So here is the amount of TV time the women had during the 5 hours of Raw and Smackdown Live

Total minutes: 34

Total minutes of actual match time:3 minutes 15 seconds

That is if you consider what Nattie and Nia had an actual match.  Missing from TV all together were the Riott Squad, Mickie James and Naomi.  Carmella, Zelina and Mandy were all valets this past week.  Is Lana still hurt.  She must not be hurt because she said she should fight Asuka at Wrestlemania.  She was a valet too.  And I loved that she called out for Asuka at Wrestlemania.

The women need their own show.  I hope the WWE brass will read this.  There is so many possibilities that I am going to do their job for them and write up a program for the all Woman’s show post Wrestlemania.  I know booking another arena might be an issue for them.  So I am going to look into some of these details.  I like having projects and this is one I want to look into.

TO THE WOMEN OF THE WWE.  I would love to meet any of you during the Wrestlemania week.

Before I get to the Men’s division I want to say thank you Becky Lynch.

I read this morning of what happened yesterday when Becky jumped the rail to take a picture with a fan who was physically unable to climb the stairs to get to her.  While taking a picture with that fan another fan starting shaking and had a seizure.  Becky held her tight until she stopped shaking and even waited until she knew the fan was okay.  It is probably true that other WWE Superstars would do the same thing in Becky’s shoes but we don’t know that.  We do know that “The Man” actually did it.  Well done Rebecca Quinn well done.

The talk is that Kurt Angle is legit injured and might have to be in a tag team match for his final match at Wrestlemania.  I want to see Kurt in a one on one match.  The quality of the match is not nearly as important as seeing the moment for Kurt as he says goodbye.  John Cena should be that opponent.  We will find out on Monday night who Kurt is going to wrestle at Wrestlemania and if it will be a one on one or tag team match.  Making lists seems to be the theme of this blog today so here is another one.  I am going to list out the opponents either rumored or who I think could make sense.

One on one match:

  1. John Cena. He makes the most sense to me
  2. This would be a quick match and it gets the Taker on the card.
  3. Baron Corbin. It is rumored but I don’t like it.
  4. Samoa Joe because of their past history in TNA. I don’t like it.

In a Tag Team Match

  1. With Braun Stroman vs Baron Corbin and Elias. I would rather see EIias doing something else.  But it gets all on the card
  2. With Curt Hawkins against Corbin and Elias. Hawkins breaks his losing streak
  3. With Demon Finn Balor against Lashley and Corbin.

Also on Monday night there is a tag team match scheduled with Lashley and “The Hype Man” Lio Rush against Finn Balor and a mystery partner.  I have absolutely no idea who it is.  We know it is not Seth Rollins as he is scheduled to wrestle Drew McIntyre.  Roman Reigns won’t wrestle as he is going to continue to sell his injury he sustained against McIntyre last week on Raw.  It does not make sense for it to be Dean Ambrose or Elias and certainly not Baron Corbin.  I just checked over the Raw roster on WWE.com to see who it could be.  I came across a few names that it could be.

  1. Braun Stroman. This would be the boring choice as I do expect something bigger.  Stroman though has no real story line other than messing with the Saturday Night Live crew.
  2. Apollo Crews. Probably not.  But I mentioned him because he has been getting time on TV lately.
  3. Luke Harper. He did come back on a Raw house show but unless he gets into an angle with Lashley I don’t see it
  4. Bray Wyatt. Same here.  He would get a great pop but pairing Bray and Finn does not make sense.
  5. A new NXT superstar making their debut. I don’t watch this show so I have no idea on who it could be.
  6. Kurt Angle. Does it make sense since supposedly Kurt is injured and has to work tag team matches.
  1. The Undertaker. He doesn’t wrestle on Raw anymore so his involvement would be to set up his Wrestlemania match.  Taker can fight whoever he wants but Lashley?  I don’t see it.

So the two names I am going with are:

  1. Johnny Gargano. With Tommaso Ciampa out with an injury killing the angle that was planned for DIY if WWE wanted Gargano on the main roster this could be a good spot to re-introduce him.
  2. Sami Zayn. I am going with Zayn here.  He is cleared to wrestle and is listed on the Raw roster on WWE.com.

Over on Smackdown Live we have already been told that the Gauntlet match is opening the show.  So to refresh our memories like we really need it its Kofi Kingston against Randy Orton, Samoa Joe, Cesaro, Sheamus and Erick Rowan in a to be determined order.  If Kofi wins he gets his match against Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania for the title.  You don’t advertise this match unless Kofi either wins it or runs the gauntlet to the last guy and loses.  Either way historically this match takes up if you include commercials around an hour of TV time.  That is a lot.

Now we also were told the Miz is going to respond to Shane O’Mac.  That will be a 10-minute segment at least.  Miz is incredible on the mic and he will be given the time to further build up this match.  So what is left for the rest of the show.

You know we will have yet another 10-minute promo with Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.  Maybe the WWE does what they always do and teams them up together against the IIconics.  Or maybe the IIconics wrestle Fire and Desire.  But if the IIconics are going to be in that championship tag team match at Wrestlememania it would be nice to see them wrestle on TV again.  Or maybe Sasha and Bayley make an appearance on Smackdown Live.  I don’t see that scenario.  Of course it is entirely possible we only have Becky and Charlotte on the show from the women’s division.  Or in typical WWE fashion they just mash up the women in one giant schmaz match just like my man BC Amplified always says.

One thing is for sure about Smackdown Live.  Whatever is announced so far makes the show lit.  What they do with the rest of the 45 minutes or so will be huge and they must end the show with a bang.  I say the Uso’s call out the Hardy Boys and make that official.  Samoa Joe will definitely be on the show and probably R Truth with Carmella because they are pushing Truth for something.  Also Andrade is a great talent and he needs to be on the show which means Zelina also is on the show as her story with Carmella continues to get told.

Wrestlemania Card.

Announced Matches:

  1. Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins
  2. Ronda Rousey vs Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair
  3. Triple H vs Batista
  4. Shane McMahon vs the Miz
  5. AJ Styles vs Randy Orton
  6. Kurt Angle vs opponent to be named on Monday Night Raw. Possibly in a tag match.
  7. Men’s Battle Royal-Haven’t heard anything about this not being on the card.
  8. Women’s Battle Royal- Haven’t heard anything about this not being on the card.

Rumored matches but not official

  1. Daniel Bryan vs Kofi Kingston. If Kofi runs the gauntlet he is in.  Whether it becomes a multi person match is anybody’s guess
  2. The Uso’s vs the Hardy Boys. This has to happen
  3. Sasha and Bayley vs Nia and Tamina vs Nattie and Beth Phoenix. Also a rumor the IIconics may be involved in this match
  4. Asuka vs Sonya Deville vs Mandy Rose. Also rumored to have Lacey Evans in this match
  5. Demon Finn Balor vs Lashley-Honestly don’t know about this one. Rumor is WWE has something big for Finn and the Demon is on posters for Wrestlemania
  6. Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre. Seeds were planted last week.
  7. Buddy Murphy defending his title against someone.
  8. Samoa Joe defending his title against John Cena. Cena could also face Angle.  But Cena will be on the card.
  9. Revival against Ricochet and Aleister Black. Possibly another team gets involved.

That’s 17 matches so far.  Last year there was a total of 14 matches with three of those on the kickoff show.  There is still a lot of names missing off this card.  Aside from the women’s Battle Royal there are 3 women’s matches potentially involving as many as 15 women.  So the battle royal will have a lot of NXT women in it.  I would love to have Carmella face Zelina but I don’t see it unless they make it a mixed tag match with R Truth and Andrade.

Who else is missing?  Dean Ambrose.  If he is really leaving, then it does not matter if he is on the card unless he is doing a run in.  If he is staying, then he is involved in something.  Kevin Owens is another big name that does not have a singles or tag team match on this card.  He did just get a title shot at Fastlane.  Same with Mustafa Ali.  But you need to have names for the battle royal which will be heavy with main roster guys.

So I was ready to post this to my website and noticed a couple of rumors that I don’t really think are possible but with two major stars in those matches it is possible the WWE might give them what they want.

We will know tomorrow about Kurt Angle’s Wrestlemania opponent(s).  But I do see that he would be open to a team Angle reunion match with Shelton Benjamin.  Not sure if it is a tag team match or in singles competition.  I am not buying this.

The second one was interesting because everyone wants to wrestle this man at Wrestlemania.  Finn Balor will be on the card as the Demon character.  That is all but confirmed.  He has said he wants to face the Undertaker.  Who wouldn’t.  I don’t see this as a possibility.  The match would be terrible.  The idea of the Phenom vs the Demon is intriguing.  As I stated above Iisted Taker as a possible partner with Finn for his match Monday night even though he does not wrestle on Raw anymore.  But if he is going to be appearing on the card then they need to start getting that set up.

The Battle Royal matches and Buddy Murphy’s match will be on the kickoff show.  That is guaranteed.  The PPV has a scheduled start time of 7PM.  So it looks like this is going to be another long night of wrestling.

How does the card look so far?

RAW AND SMACKDOWN LIVE REVIEWS & WRESTLEMANIA POTENTIAL CARD

Instead of reviewing every inch of Raw and SD I think I will do this differently and just highlight what I liked and didn’t like before I move right into my WrestleMania segment.  As I now re read this it looks like I did review both shows just in a completely crazy order of events.

The Woman’s Division.

This is my favorite part to talk about.  As this division keeps getting hotter and the WWE is now starting to get more story lines going before Mania.  It is still not known how many matches between the pre-show and main card will showcase the women’s division but as of right now I feel there is 4 matches with the potential to be 5.

Let’s start with the hottest angle going in the WWE.  I have felt this has been dragging and getting tiresome but with Ronda Rousey’s heel turn being so bad ass it has taken this for a new turn.  This is the Ronda Rousey I wanted to see in the WWE.  She would legit wipe out any of these women except for the few who have some MMA experience.  Her promo this week was spot on and edgy and I loved it.  She has been only been speaking the truth whether you want to believe it or not.  The 3-way match with Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair is over hyped now so much that the WWE does not need to do anything more other than a brief mention of it every week.

I loved the Dana Brooke spot.  She was so honest and appealing and what she accomplished was making me who was not a fan of hers now behind her and hoping she does get a chance.  After all she was rumored to be on the chopping block once WrestleMania is over.  We make the mistake all the time by giving up on or forgetting about those who do not get TV time.  We all need to realize how hard these women are working behind the scenes and hoping to get a chance to show their skills.

As for the triple threat angle I am sure we will continue to see the same Charlotte/Becky promos throughout the next few weeks.  I don’t know if it is what Becky says or if it is her voice but some of what she says is corny and now played out.  Charlotte of course is the female face of the company and didn’t Becky and Charlotte debut the same time?  So how does Becky say it took her to get them to the main event?  No it was Ronda that took them there.  Her attempt to make fun of Ronda’s lack of a brain was straight up whack.  It’s time for this match to happen already.

I must say I do like what they are doing with the Tag Team division too.  I heard a rumor they are looking to bring back more legends to build up the tag team division.  So we have Nattie and Beth Phoenix.  Even though that match between Nattie and Nia Jax basically lasted 40 seconds before Beth stormed the ring and cleared it out it served its purpose.  The Glamazon is back and might stay a while.  I also loved the fact that Sasha and Bayley attacked Nia and Tamina when they got to the back.

You really need to follow these stories on Social Media.  The Iiconics cut a good promo just stating facts that Boss Hug has not appeared on Smackdown Live with the belts.  It’s true but let’s face it.  2 of the Smackdown Live tag teams don’t seem to be tag teams anymore.  Leaving only the Iiconics.  I am fearful they are setting up a huge 4 team match at Mania

I also love what they are doing with Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.  If they are not going to be looking for the tag team titles, then just split them up.  Mandy’s character “God’s Greatest Creation” is really picking up steam.  I also think Sonya is a very gifted wrestler who does not need to be a valet for Mandy.  The only bad thing about this angle is that it is making Asuka’s victories look cheap.  Asuka was bad ass when she got to the main roster.  She needs to get back to that.

Good move but not significant to make Alexa Bliss as the host of WrestleMania.  If she can’t wrestle, then put her in a visible role.  She has good mic skills and looked absolutely stunning this week.

Lacey Evans only had one cat walk this week doing it on Raw and covering the face of Renee Young who looked legit mad.

Naomi and the Riott Squad were not on TV this week.  For some reason Naomi is getting buried.  She is too good of a talent to be buried.

Now for my favorite part of the Women’s division.  I have to say that I was very disappointed that my wife Carmella’s entrance and dance break was not shown on TV.  I don’t think there is another Women’s superstar that gets as much love or is as followed on Social Media as Mella.  She is indeed money.  And its time for her to have a TV match against Zelina Vega.  Please WWE make this happen.

ALSO WWE PLEASE GIVE THESE WOMEN THEIR OWN WEEKLY TV SHOW.  IT’S ABOUT TIME WE SEE ALL THE WOMEN GET THEIR CHANCE ON TV.

Now for the Men’s division.  The key theme this week was promo’s.  With WrestleMania now less than 4 weeks away it’s time to get that card set.  Smackdown Live had the two best promos.  Without a doubt and Smackdown was the better show even though all of their matches were tag team matches and basically just thrown together.  WWE is going to an edgier product and it shows and it’s playing off great.

The best promo was in my opinion Randy Orton and AJ Styles.  All they did was just tell the truth about each other with a bit of comedy and edge.  We sometimes forget how good a heel Orton is and just how good his mic work really is.  The Dixie Carter reference was brilliant.  AJ bringing up all the stables Orton was in was equally funny.  These two had to cut a good promo to get interest in their WrestleMania match.  Mission accomplished.

The New Day were golden on the mic as Big E, Xavier and Kofi each had their time to shine.  They also showed some aggression by breaking up the 8-man tag team match.  We sometimes forget just how much the New Day does for this company outside of the ring.  Vince’s comment about how there isn’t anything bigger than his ego was funny as hell and also true.  This was the best Vince McMahon promo we have seen in a long time.  Kofi has to run the gauntlet next week on Smackdown Live to get his title shot.  It is guaranteed he does it.  Unless Vince wants to keep playing this game.  Kofi is being booked as the true underdog and the fans want him and expect him to win the strap.  For this reason, I am thinking we maybe get a curveball thrown at us.

I also love Shane O’Mac on the mic.  We forget just how good a heel Shane is.  I would love to see him just be the commissioner and not wrestle as much.  But there is no doubt about it Shane is good for one big spot during every big match he is in.

Last but not least we have Triple H and Bautista.  Triple H was all business in his jeans and leather jacket while Bautista came out dressed up and Hunter called him a blue nose ring model.  I must say I was a bit disappointed in this promo.  All of this you know what I want and I am not giving you what I want back and forth got a bit too much.  Hunter’s comment calling the bodyguards the Guardians of the Independent League was golden.  The ending of this promo got bad ass.

Please let’s push Elias more.  He is money and I like the aggression he showed when No Way Jose interrupted his latest performance.  Give Elias a title.

The Uso’s basically calling out the Hardy’s for a WrestleMania match has to happen and it better be a just those teams too.  I think this would be the first time these two teams have ever wrestled.  This would be a must see match.

The 8-man tag team match was ok even the ending when the New Day crashed the party and took everyone out.

I was a bit confused watching the Shield farewell speech as only Roman Reigns spoke.  No one really knows what Dean Ambrose is doing.  Eventually Roman and Dean left the ring so Seth can build his Universal title match against Brock Lssnar at WrestleMania.  Of course Paul Heyman comes out and they had a very good promo.  Then Shelton Benjamin attacks Seth which leads to a match that Seth wins.  Shelton is from Smackdown Live and it was never really explained why he was there.

Seth and Finn give respect to each other as they pass on the ramp.  Lashley awaits Finn in a title match.  I hated the ending as Lio Rush interfered and distracted Finn as Lashley took the strap back.

Ricochet and Alesiter Black continued their winning ways as a tag team by beating Bobby Roode and Chad Gable and get jumped by the Revival.  Finally, some real heat for the Raw tag team division.

They are making Braun Stroman into a joke with this angle with Saturday Night Live.  This is the WWE’s fault.  They should have given the strap when he was hot.

We heard Kurt Angle say at WrestleMania he will have his last ever match.  He beat Apollo Crews and got a nice ovation from his home town crowd.

Roman was supposed to fight Baron Corbin but Drew Mcintyre attacked him and laid him out.  Dean asked Hunter for a Falls Count anywhere match against Drew and it was granted.  This was a very good and brutal match.  They fought all over the arena and Dean took a lot of punishment.  Drew knocked him out with the Clayborn Kick and that is how Raw ended.

The tag team match of Mysterio and R Truth against Andrade and Samoa Joe was again a good match.  These 4 have good in ring chemistry.  Mysterio got the pin fall victory killing some of Samoa Joe’s momentum.

Daniel Bryan and Rowan beat KO and Mustafa Ali.  Again Ali can’t win a TV match.  Nothing spectacular about this match.

WRESTLEMANIA UPDATED CARD AND PREDICTED CARD

Here are the 4 announced matches for WrestleMania.

  1. Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins for the Universal Title. Everyone assumes Seth is going to win the title.  I am not so sure anymore.  It would be smart to get this title off Brock but with Fox Sports in the picture we know they are going to pull some strings for the kind of content and talent they want on their shows.  Maybe they want Brock and Ronda on Smackdown Live.  I am still going with Seth Rollins and his immediate opponents after WrestleMania will be Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns.  But I would not be surprised if Brock walks out of WrestleMania still the champion.
  2. Ronda Rousey vs Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair for the Raw Women’s Title. This match has to be a triple threat despite what some say.  This match can go in so many ways.  Ronda can lose the strap and not get pinned or tapped out.  Maybe we see the beginning of the 4 Horseman angle.  I can make you dizzy with all the possibilities of this match so I won’t list them out until we get closer to WrestleMania.  I believe Becky will win the strap but Ronda won’t be pinned.  Charlotte has lost to Becky so many times already that no one will care.  My bigger concern is how do we get them on the same page to start the Horseman angle.
  3. Triple H vs Bautista. We already know what is going to happen.  They will beat each other up all over Met Life Stadium.  Since this is a one match deal for Dave, Triple H will win this match.
  4. Shane O’Mac vs The Miz. This will be a grudge match with Shane of course doing something crazy.  You can guarantee Miz’s father getting involved in some way.  I think The Miz wins this match.

For the rest of the card let’s look at some un announced matches.  The above matches are officially announced on WWE’s website as of this morning.  I looked at last year’s card and there were 14 matches.  Three were on the kickoff show with 2 of them being the Men’s and Women’s Battle Royal and eleven were on the main card.  The WWE likes to have a few of these tripe threat matches or fatal four way matches just to get people on the card.  The main event is already a triple threat match.  I think there will be at least two more of these matches.  So let’s get right to it.

  1. AJ Styles vs Randy Orton. As I mentioned above that was a great promo.
  2. Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre. The seeds have already been planted for this one.
  3. The Uso’s vs the Hardy Boys. I believe this would be their first ever one on one match ever.
  4. Daniel Bryan vs Kofi Kingston. This is going to happen.  I have no doubt about it.
  5. Kurt Angle vs John Cena. This is Kurt Angle’s farewell match.  Putting Cena in the match accomplishes 2 things.  One is Angle wrestles someone he has a long history with and two you get Cena a match and let Samoa Joe fight someone else.
  6. Boss Hug Connection vs Nia Jax and Tamina vs Nattie and Beth Phoenix. Right now this looks like the plan.  They are also teasing the IIconics in this match so that would not surprise me if they are added to the match.  Look for Nia and Tamina to win the belts.
  7. Asuka. I originally thought this could be another multi person match but seeing that two of the other women’s matches will be of the triple threat variety this would severely water down the Women’s Battle Royal which will have lots of NTX and maybe some legends competing in.  Hopefully we see some juice put behind this match.  I had thought there could maybe be a ladder match but with the Money In The Bank PPV in May I don’t see that happening.  The Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville split looks interesting enough to build into this match and maybe Lacey Evans stops the cat walking and starts wrestling as she is rumored to be in line for a big push.
  8. Samoa Joe vs Rey Mysterio. It certainly looks like they are building towards this match.
  9. The Revival vs Ricochet and Alesiter Black. The Revival is finally getting some juice behind the tag team titles.
  10. Lashley vs Finn Balor. I am not completely sold on this idea Balor lost the belt because something bigger is in store for him.
  11. R Truth and Carmella vs Andrade and Zelina Vega. All 4 of these competitors deserve a match in my opinion.
  12. & 17. The remaining roster will be involved in the Men’s and Women’s Battle Royal.

That makes 17 matches.  WOW.  You will see four matches on the kickoff show with two being the Battle Royal matches and the other two I am not sure of.  Notice I didn’t mention the Undertaker.  I actually want to see Elias get into the intercontinental title match and win it.  There are others too like Kevin Owens and Mustafa Ali.  So as of today this is how I see it.  As we all know things can change in the WWE very quickly.
