WWE Women’s Evolution Horsewomen Continue Their Destruction, TV Title Tournament Starts

WOMEN’S EVOLUTION # 8 May 29TH

Stephanie opens the show in the ring

Stephanie: Welcome to WWE Women’s Evolution. We have a great show for you tonight. This women’s division keeps going forward and we have another huge step taking place tonight. We have the matchups set for the first ever Women’s TV Title Champion. We have Sonya Deville taking on Nikki Cross. The winner of that match will face the winner of Liv Morgan vs Mandy Rose. Next, we have Zelina Vega taking on Sarah Logan. And the winner of that match will take on the winner of Natalya vs Micki James. Those are some good matchups. Speaking of good matchups we have Naomi vs Charlotte and Ember Moon vs Lacey Evans. We offer the best competition week in and week out. As this TV Title tournament starts tonight I want to announce another first for this women’s division. We will be crowning our very first Queen Of The Ring during this coming Summer.  So there will be more details to come regarding that. So let’s get started with tonight’s matches.

Paige: A Queen of the ring. That’s huge.

Renee: In addition to these great matches we have the IIconics on “A Moment Of Bliss. That should be good.

Paige: We also have the in-ring debut of Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke taking on the Sky Pirates. I am excited about tonight’s action.

We see Heyman in the back talking on the phone with the Horsewomen standing there.

Heyman: Did you see how Stephanie didn’t even acknowledge the Horsewomen wrestling the Sky Pirates tonight. Don’t worry about it. We will have a huge impact on this night. You better believe that.

NATALYA VS MICKIE JAMES TV TITLE MATCH

Natalya wins easily with the sharpshooter

KAYLA BRAXTON WITH ZELINA VEGA INTERVIEW

Kayla: Zelina do you think you have taken this vendetta with Carmella too far?

Zelina: Carmella has dragged the hood out of me. I resent her for that. But maybe this is what I am supposed to be.

Kayla: The hood? What does that mean?

Zelina: I had to go back to my roots and drag out the nasty in me. I am so tired of that Staten Island Trash bag so I figured I would make an improvement to her.

Kayla: You cut her hair and spray painted TRASH on her body.

Zelina: I think I made an improvement. (Zelina looks in anger) Carmella now that I really have your attention, if you want to end this with me you better just stay out of my way or else.

Kayla: Your about to have a match in a tournament for a title. Are you focused on facing Sarah Logan?

Zelina: Sarah is not better than me. It’s time this division sees the real Zelina Vega.

NIKKI CROSS VS SONYA DEVILLE TV TITLE MATCH

Sonya defeats Nikki in a hard fought match. Sonya’s aggression was full out in this match. The end came when she gave Nikki a Deville Kick then tapped her out with the Kimura lock.

CHARLY CARUSO INTERVIEW CARMELLA

Charly: I am here with Carmella. Carmella what are your thoughts on what happened last week with Zelina Vega

Carmella: (Looking angry and serious) Zelina Vega I have had it with you. How dare you do what you did to me last week. Your lucky all you cut was my hair extensions. But you wrote TRASH all over my expensive ring gear. You can’t beat me in the ring I am going to end this with you. Zelina Vega you better watch your back.

Charly: Carmella what does that mean?

Carmella: It is time to end this once and for all.

Charly: How are you going to do that?

Carmella: I have a question for Zelina.

Charly: What’s the question?

Carmella: I will ask it to her face to face. (Carmella walks away)

 

ZELINA VEGA VS SARAH LOGAN TV TITLE MATCH

This has been a very physical match. Both know what this title can mean to their careers. Zelina gets the upper hand on Sarah and is getting ready to put her away. All of a sudden Carmella runs towards the ring.

Renee: Here comes Carmella.

Carmella jumps into the ring and looks at Zelina. She gives her the middle finger and drops a leg across Sarah’s neck while she is laying on the mat.

Renee: What? Why is Carmella attacking Sarah Logan?

The ref calls for the bell and disqualifies Zelina Vega.

Paige: That was brilliant by Carmella. She cost Zelina Vega the match by attacking Sarah Logan.

Vega looks confused in the ring then gets enraged as Carmella is laughing cause Sarah Logan won the match by DQ. Zelina is pleading her case to the referee. Carmella sneaks up behind Vega and kicks her in the face. Carmella goes to the outside and grabs a microphone.

Carmella: Zelina. Do I have your attention now? I challenge you to a no disqualification match next week. (Vega is holding her head and staring at Carmella and nodding her head)

 

CHARLY CARUSO INTERVIEW WITH SONYA DEVILLE

Charly: Sonya congratulations on winning your first match in the TV title tournament.

Sonya: Thank you. This is my time to shine.

Charly: What are your thoughts on possibly facing Mandy Rose next week if she wins her match tonight.

Sonya: Nothing would make me happier.

Charly: You guys were best friends.

Sonya: Yeah we traveled the roads together. We met each other’s families.

Charly: So what went wrong? (Sonya looks around)

Sonya: Sometimes you need to give instead of always taking. Mandy never did anything for me. It was always me getting her over.

Charly: It did look like Mandy was the leader of the duo.

Sonya: It was never supposed to be that way. Paige used to be the leader and we followed her lead. But Paige is gone now. It gives me great pleasure to know that Mandy has to go through me to win this TV title.

A MOMENT OF BLISS WITH IICONICS

Alexa: I want to welcome the reigning Women’s Tag Team champions the IIconics. (IIconics come out to the ring) Welcome, Peyton and Billie.

Peyton: Thanks, Alexa. It’s always great to talk to another female who is on our level.

Alexa: Let’s talk about the women’s tag team division.

Billie: You mean how we are dominating it?

Alexa: Some would say you are ducking the top teams.

Peyton: Who is saying that? The Sky Pirates? Haven’t we faced them twice?

Alexa: They did beat you once and last week The Horsewomen helped you out by attacking them and handing you a win.

Billie: Alexa we take offense to that. The Sky Pirates pinned the wrong person and ran away. We would have continued that match.

Peyton: And last week. The Horsewomen. We had nothing to do with that. They obviously have issues with the Sky Pirates. It’s none of our business.

Alexa: Some are saying your definitely going to duck the Horsewomen.

Peyton: Why Alexa what do you mean?

Alexa: I am not saying that. It’s just what I am hearing?

Billie: From who?

Alexa: So are you willing to fight the Horsewomen or the Sky Pirates in another match?

Peyton: Why would the Sky Pirates deserve another match?

Alexa: Would you be willing to put these titles on the line to face the winner of tonight’s Horsewomen vs Sky Pirates match?

Billie and Peyton: Stuttering

Billie: I guess so. (Saying it not so convincingly) I mean there isn’t any other worthy tag teams in this division.

Team VBB’s music hits

Lana: Hey IIconics. I guess you haven’t been paying attention to what Dana and I have been doing?

Dana: We have had 4 matches as a tag team and won them all

Alexa: That includes a win over the Sky Pirates

Peyton: Alexa I thought you were our friends.

Billie: How about you speak when we tell you to speak

Alexa: This is my show. I do what I want. It’s my job as a host to know everything.

Billie: I seem to remember us helping you win against the Sky Pirates.

Peyton: I don’t know why you feel like your in our league.

Dana: You have been the worst champions in this division. You claim to be fighting champions but you never defend those belts.

Lana: And those accents are terrible.

Peyton: Look who is talking about accents.

Alexa: All of you have terrible accents. (all 4 women look at Alexa) Just Saying.

Dana: I would love to see you defend those belts against us.

Billie: You don’t deserve it.

Alexa: Peyton. Billie you say you are fighting champions why don’t you accept this challenge by Lana and Dana.

Lana: Alexa it’s because they know we can beat them.

Dana: We are not afraid to fight anyone.

Peyton: Neither are we.

Lana: Prove it

Billie: Your on. Next week.

Paige: we will have a Tag team title match next week with the IIconics taking on VBB.

 

 

KAYLA BRAXTON INTERVIEW WITH MANDY ROSE

Kayla: You have a first-round match tonight against Liv Morgan. Not to look ahead but if you win this match you will be facing your friend Sonya DeVille.

Mandy: Former friend. But your right Kayla. I have to take care of Liv first before I teach Sonya a lesson in respect.

Kayla: Respect?

Mandy: That’s right. Sonya has been riding my coattails for a long time now. She has gotten this far because of me.

Kayla: We have seen her help you win many matches.

Mandy: I was the leader of the group. Sonya look into my eyes. You better pray that Liv Morgan beats me.

SKY PIRATES VS JESSAMYN DUKE AND MARINA SHAFIR

Paige: This matchup will be very physical.

Renee: There is a lot of history between these 4 women back from their NXT days.

Paige: When you factor in Shayna and Asuka as the Money In The Bank winner that makes this more interesting. Especially since Shayna stole the briefcase last week.

This match as we expect is brutal. Both teams using high impact moves. Both teams don’t like each other. Shayna taunts Asuka holding her briefcase. The referee has his hands full watching both inside and outside of the ring. Finally, Shayna sneaks up behind Asuka and clobbers her with the briefcase. Asuka goes down and Kairi goes outside to tend to her. Shayna is threatening to hit Asuka again. Meanwhile, in the ring, The Horsewomen are double teaming Io Shirai. The referee starts the count but the Horsewomen don’t care and continue the beatdown. The ref rings the bell for a DQ against the Horsewomen. Kairi tries to get in the ring but Shayna clubs her from behind. Shayna rolls Kairi into the ring and now it becomes a 3 on 1 beatdown. Shayna rolls out of the ring and drags Asuka into the ring. Shanya does the twisted arm stop twice on Asuka.

Paige: She is trying to break Asuka’s arm

Then Shayna pits Asuka in the Fujiwara armbar. Meanwhile, the Horsewomen have layed out the Sky Pirates. Finally, Shayna releases the hold and the Horsewomen leave the ring smiling.

Renee: Who is going to be able to stop these women.

BACKSTAGE WITH STEPHANIE AND BAYLEY AND TAMINA

Bayley: Stephanie how come you didn’t return my calls this past week.

Stephanie: I was very busy but I know what this is about. And I am sorry.

Bayley: Sorry about what? That you had Tamina interfere in my match when I had it under control?

Stephanie: You have to understand business. I am backing you. And when you don’t win matches it makes me look bad. So I needed to make sure you won last week.

Bayley: I don’t want to win that way. I don’t need your goon to help me win. (Tamina gets restless)

Stephanie: Well I decide what is “Best For Business.”

Bayley: It’s not best for my business.

Stephanie: Bayley don’t ever dare turn your back on me. It will be the last thing you ever do. You know what I mean.

Bayley looks disgusted and walks away.

Stephanie has a vengeful look on her face.

MANDY ROSE VS LIV MORGAN TV TITLE MATCH

Mandy starts off this match fast. Trying to win this one early. This is the best Mandy has looked in the ring since her call up. Sonya Deville makes her way to ringside and is watching the match. This has got Mandy’s attention as Liv Morgan has the upper hand now. Liv takes out Mandy’s knee. The ref backs Liv up to check on Mandy’s knee. Sonya goes on the ring apron and kicks Liv in the back of the head which stuns her. Mandy sees Liv dazed runs and gives her a knee to the jaw. Puts her in the Bed Of Roses and gets the pin.

Renee: Sonya has helped Mandy win.

Paige: This ensures Sonya will get her hands on Mandy next week. That is going to be a good one

LACEY EVANS VS EMBER MOON

This is a big match as the winner could be elevated to be in line for a championship match. Very good match with near falls for each. Lacey goes for the Women’s right. Ember ducks and kicks her in the gut and gives her a butterfly suplex. Ember goes to the top rope and gives Lacey an Eclipse and gets the pin.

CHARLOTTE VS NAOMI

Renee: Naomi is looking to challenge either Becky or Shayna for the title and this would be a very high profile win for her.

Paige: Charlotte has her eyes on the gold too specifically Shayna Baszler’s gold. Both are phenomenal athletes.

The match starts with Charlotte being the aggressor. Naomi counters as they go back and forth for several minutes. Then Charlotte starts to work on the knee of Naomi setting her up for the figure 8 leg lock. Shayna Baszler now appears from under the ring and is hiding outside. Charlotte goes off the ropes and Baszler using a wrench from under the ring clubs Charlotte in her back. She staggers towards Naomi and Naomi gives her a wheelbarrow stunner. Naomi picks her up and whips her into the ropes and gives her the rear view. Naomi manages to hit the move despite her bad knee and pins a stunned Charlotte. Naomi rolls to the corner and grabs her knee. Baszler enters the ring and attacks Charlotte. Charlotte is laying motionless in the ring. Naomi staggers to her feet and Baszler dropkicks her bad knee as she rolls out of the ring. Out comes Becky Lynch to help Charlotte. Becky and Shayna are going at it. Then the other Horsewomen come out and it turns into a 3 on 1. Charlotte staggers to her feet and joins the fight but it’s not enough. The Horsewomen do a number on Becky and Charlotte.

In the back we see Bayley looking at this happening on a monitor and is getting upset. We see Stephanie look at her.

Stephanie: Bayley that is not of your concern. We are not getting involved.

We see a disgusted looking Bayley and she stares at Stephanie as Stephanie walks away.

 

THE SHOW ENDS

EMAIL ADDRESS IS BIGSPORTSFANANDMORE@OUTLOOK.COM

DISCLAIMER.  THIS IS MY CREATION AND NOT WWE’S.  I HAVE NO INSIDE KNOWLEDGE OR SOURCE WITHIN WWE.  THIS IS SOMETHING I HAVE CREATED AND IS NOT FACTUAL.  THE ONLY RULE I AM USING IS TO BE ON THIS SHOW YOU HAVE TO BE ON THE CURRENT ROSTER.  NXT INCLUDED.  IF YOU ARE LEGIT HURT LIKE NIA AND RONDA YOU WILL BE WRITTEN OFF TV.  I HOPE WHOEVER READS THIS ENJOYS IT.

IN ADDITION, AS YOU CAN SEE I DON’T SCRIPT A FULL MATCH THAT IS TOO MUCH WORK.  OBVIOUSLY, I DO SCRIPT HOW I WANT THE MATCH TO END.

Fastlane Review

FASTLANE

Well this was unexpected.  The card was vanilla and predictable.  I predicted every announced match correctly except for the New Day vs Nakamura and Rusev.  But the unexpected part was all the craziness before the PPV started and during it.  A lot of seeds were thrown around with Wrestlemania just 4 weeks away now.  The card has become clearer now.  Some of the matches were just ok tonight but you have to like what the WWE creative is doing now.  They made a vanilla PPV exciting.

So we start on the kickoff show with Carmella and Zelina Vega arguing over who should get the next US title shot.  These two are destined to have a good match maybe this week on Smackdown Live.  As much as I love my wife Carmella I don’t think this leads to a one on one match at Wrestlemania.  Maybe a mixed tag team match at Wrestlemania?  Depending on how many matches are on the card.  So anyway the match between Rey Mysterio and Andrade has now been moved to the actual PPV and has become a fatal 4 way for Samoa Joe’s US title with R Truth in the match.  More camera time for my Carmella.

We then see the New Day and find out that the McMahons requested to see Kofi Kingston to talk about the WWE title.  New Day beats Nakamura and Rusev.  Ok match.  Not expecting anything big.  Please get Nakamura and Rusev involved in something big.  Nakamura was super over before they turned him heel.  If anyone saw Total Divas, they know the kind of personality Rusev has.

Now the main show starts.  This show really flowed nicely.  I wonder how it played out in the arena.

The first match was the Uso’s defending the tag team titles against Shane O’Mac and the Miz.  The breakup of Shane and Miz has been inevitable as they are setting up their Wrestlemania match.  So when Shane attacked Miz in front of his father after they lost to the Uso’s this was no surprise to me.  I wish they made the Miz the heel because he is so good as a heel but still a good spot.  The match was good too.  A few big spots especially the mid-air collision between Shane and one of the Uso’s.  Miz got a lot of pops from his home town crowd.  Shane taunting Miz’s dad was a good touch.

Next we have a Wrestlemania Promo. Drew/Corbin/Lashley quick promo for their match.

Elias is in the house and he was not interrupted.  This is a theme that played out through the night as Elias came out a few times to sing a song killing Cleveland.  I love Elias.  Hopefully he will walk the streets of Manhattan during the Wrestlemania week.

Another promo for HHH and Batista for Monday Night Raw.

Again rehashing the New Day from the kickoff show

Next up we have Asuka defending the title against God’s Greatest Creation Mandy Rose. Corey as usual acts like a 15-year old boy in heat whenever Mandy comes out.  I never thought Mandy was going to win this match.  The match was ok.  Asuka is a really good wrestler and she deserves to be in a good program.  Perhaps Asuka is not 100 percent after getting hurt at a house show on Monday night so the WWE did not want her to do too much. The ending really didn’t come off well as Mandy lost balance because of stepping on the ring apron as Sonya Deville went under the ring looking for a kendo stick.  We get teased of a Mandy and Sonya spat so we will see where this one goes.

Next we see back stage where the New Day find Kofi standing out of the McMahon’s office.  He never went in and said he has been waiting for someone to get him.  New Day walk into the office and are like what’s up making their man Kofi wait.  Vince says I was waiting for him.  Vince says the WWE title match is now a triple threat match.  The crowd pops as Vince says the match is happening right now.  New Day is barred from ringside.  I thought it was kind of odd to have this match so early in the card.  Kofi comes out first.  It is announced there is a change to this match and gets screwed as he is facing the Bar in a handicap match.  The championship match is announced for later on in the night.  Let’s further this Kofi getting screwed underdog role as the Bar squash him big time.  But the crowd was popping for Kofi big time.

Back stage with the Boss Hug Connection.  Blah still no buildup for this match.

Here comes Elias again to sign un interrupted.  Now he is again attacking Cleveland and Kofi and the Miz again.  Talks Steelers are better than the Browns.  Loving this Elias angle.

We review the Shane and Miz breakup again.  Kayla asks Shane for an explanation and gets blown off.

Next we have the triple threat tag team match for the belts.  This was a better match than I expected.  Ricochet is so incredible to watch and he has great chemistry with Aleister Black.  The Revival are a good tag team they are just getting booked wrong.  Gable and Roode also showed they are a good tag team.  A lot of good spots in this match.  The Revival retain by pinning Gable.  Ricochet and Black clear the ring at the end.  I am not sure what show they are going to eventually land on but these are three of the best tag teams in the WWE.

Let’s see Charlotte back stage getting her robe on and Becky limping out of the trainer’s room.

Next up is my favorite time of the card.  The fatal 4-way match for the US title.  R Truth and Carmella come out first to get the crowd running.  Mella is rapping now and she is super over with the crowd.  Mella is so beautiful and I am happy she is getting pushed.  This was such a great match.  Big spots all over the place.  Andrade is a future star.  R Truth was always under rated as a performer.  Mysterio still got it and Samoa Joe deserves to be champ through Wrestlemania.  They actually out performed their match from Smackdown Live this past week.  For a big guy Joeis really athletic.  Throw in Carmella lighting up Zelina Vega setting up something between them down the road and this match was well put together.  Joe retains.

Boss Hug Connection vs Nia Jax and Tamina.  Beth Phoenix is announced as the commentator for this match.  I didn’t think much about it because she has been doing this the last couple of months.  Nia and Tamina together are the biggest forces in the woman’s division.  The match was ok.  There is not much you can do when you are wrestling someone who is larger than you as Nia and Tamina are.  Bayley dominated this match and they really made Nia and Tamina seem mortal here.  Bayley rolls up Nia for the win.  After the match Nia and Tamina lay waste to the Boss-Hug Connection.  You almost knew that Beth Phoenix was going to say something.  Beth hits Tamina.  Nia lays out Beth.  Here comes Nattie.  She gets laid out.  I am kind of liking what they are doing with Nia and Tamina.  They eventually will be tag team champs.  Now we will see what happens with Beth Phoenix.  Maybe a Wrestlemania match?  It’s really great to see a lot of women’s angles being created.  Did someone say weekly female show?

It’s time for the Triple Threat match with Daniel Bryan vs Kevin Owens and Kofi Kingston.  We see the history of this before the match.  WWE is really selling this 3-way match.  KO comes out first.  Then Daniel.  As we are waiting for Kofi we get Mustafa Ali?  No Kofi.  The crowd is booing and chanting for Kofi.  WWE rolled the dice that this match would deliver without Kofi and boy did it deliver.  Kofi will get his match at Wrestlemania.  Why waste it now.  Mustafa really put himself on the map with this match.  The boys are really trying to outdo each other.  KO had several big spots as did Daniel.  The match was great and the crowd eventually got behind it.  Daniel pins Ali after Rowan saved him from a certain pin fall.  I am anxious to see where they go from here with KO.  Also no Sami Zayn, Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper who came back during the weekend at a house show.

Two matches left and they are very predictable.

We get a Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins promo.

We get a review of the Becky Lynch/Charlotte/Ronda story.

Now it’s time for Charlotte vs Becky Lynch.  There isn’t anything else they can do with this angle right now except to do what we or most of us have known for a while now and that is to make it officially a triple threat match.  The ending was really bogus though.  I think we all expected to see Ronda interfere.  But she comes in and hits Becky once causing a DQ and that’s it as Becky laughed.  I would have rather seen Ronda destroy both Becky or Charlotte or have Charlotte attack Becky after Ronda hit her causing the DQ.  Please do us a favor and not have any of these three in a match before Wrestlemania especially Ronda vs Becky.

Now we have yet another Elias concert.  Brilliant.  And what would a WWE TV event be without another cat walk by Lacey Evans.  Please get in the ring already.  Then out of nowhere we see Randy Orton RKO Elias.  Then even more out of nowhere we see AJ Styles give Orton a Phenomenal forearm cementing their Wrestlemania match.

Now for the main event of the Shield vs Drew McIntyre, Lashley and Baron Corbin.

We get a video package of the last two weeks of the Shield.  Now they keep talking about Dean Ambrose not re-signing his contract.  As far as I can remember I have never seen the WWE ever do this.  But they keep talking about it so it makes me think that Dean is not going anywhere.  And maybe the significant changes made in creative is making a big difference.

This match was crazy.  It was all over the place all over the arena.  Some big spots by Dean and Seth.  The ending was all too predictable.  The Shield did all their spots.  It did look like a sendoff. I just don’t think Dean is leaving.

So overall I will rank this PPV as an A Minus.  Only because I didn’t like the ending of the Flair/Becky match and the Asuka/Mandy match.  But I am glad the women who had three matches plus My Khaleesi Carmella and Zelina maybe building a storyline of their own.  Not to mention Beth Phoenix who might have another match in her.
