WWE Women’s Evolution Stomping Grounds Results: Who Won Becky vs Ember Moon, Shayna vs Naomi. Plus Preview Of Evolution

ALL FEMALE WEEKLY TV SHOW

 

WOMEN’S EVOLUTION STOMPING GROUND PLUS PREVIEW OF THIS WEEK’S EVOLUTION

RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION SHAYNA BASZLER VS NAOMI

Renee: Earlier tonight Stephanie McMahon announced that if the Horsewomen interfere in this match then Shayna Baszler will be stripped of the title and Naomi will be awarded the title.

Paige: The Horsewomen make it a habit of interfering in every match. This will make this match fair for Naomi.

Renee: Let’s go to Charly Caruso with Paul Heyman and Shayna Baszler in the locker room.

Charly: Paul Heyman what do you have to say about the stipulation Stephanie McMahon put in place for Shayna Baszler’s title match tonight against Naomi?

Heyman: (Laughs)Stephanie I keep telling you that no one can compete with Shayna Baszler one on one. You want to bar Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke from ringside. That’s fine with me. What do you think about that Shayna? (Shayna nods her head in approval) I will go one step further, Stephanie. I will bar myself from ringside so the whole world can see Shayna destroy Rainbow Brite one on one.

Renee: Wow we won’t see Paul Heyman at ringside either.

Paige: Naomi go get this girl.

Naomi comes out first then Shayna. With both staring each other down Naomi starts to say you won’t have your friends to help you tonight.

Renee: Paige what are you looking for in this match.

Paige: Naomi is the faster of the two so she should be using her speed. Shayna is the better technical wrestler and she also knows several submission holds. I am expecting this to be a great matchup.

Naomi starts using her speed by avoiding Shayna’s power moves then gives her a series of arm drags. Naomi whips Shayna into the corner and follows her with a clothesline. Shayna is leaned up against the turnbuckle and Naomi fires kicks to Shayna’s chest. She whips Shayna to the opposite corner and charges after her. Shayna bounces off the corner and hits Naomi with a high knee to her jaw. Naomi falls flat on her back with her legs in the air and Shayna grabs one and gives her an ankle lock. Shayna has her locked in for about 20 seconds before Naomi reveres it. Shayna starts using her power for a flurry of suplexes and gets a near pin fall. Naomi gets the upper hand and gives Shayna a springboard cross body followed by a blockbuster. Naomi gets a two count before Shayna kicks out. For the next ten minutes, Naomi and Shayna are going back and forth. The match spills to the outside. Shayna goes for a spear on Naomi but she moves and Shayna crashed into the ring barriers. Shayna is staggering around when Naomi gives her a DDT on the outside. Naomi rolls Shayna back into the ring but she does not see Asuka heading out to the ring with the Money In The Bank briefcase.

Renee: Here comes Asuka with the briefcase. Is she going to cash in while Shayna is out?

Paige: I don’t think Naomi sees her yet.

Naomi hits Shanya with an Enzugiri. Naomi goes to the top for the split legged moon sault when she sees Asuka standing right in front of her outside of the ring. Naomi lunges at Asuka but she misses her. Shayna comes up behind Naomi and rolls her up but gets a two count. Asuka has not officially cashed in the briefcase yet. Shayna gets up and gives Naomi a suplex. Asuka gets into the ring and hits Shayna with a running knee to her jaw. Shayna goes down. Naomi gives Asuka a spear. Naomi picks up Asuka and whips her into the ropes and gives her a rearview.

Renee: Come on ref get Asuka out of there.

Paige: I still haven’t seen Asuka officially cash in the briefcase.

Renee: Asuka if your cashing in the briefcase then tell the ref.

Shayna is still down and Asuka gets to her feet and Naomi gives her a diving blockbuster. Shayna is now on her feet. Naomi super kicks Asuka out of the ring. As she turns around Shayna gives her a huge kick to her face. Naomi goes down and Shayna puts her in the fujiwara armbar and Naomi taps out. The winner and still Raw Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler.

Renee: That was a great match until Asuka got involved.

Paige: You have to feel for Naomi. She had the match in control but the presence of Asuka cost Naomi the Raw Women’s Championship.

SMACKDOWN’S WOMEN CHAMPION BECKY LYNCH VS EMBER MOON

Renee: This match looks to be a fight. We saw how Evolution ended this past week. Becky and Ember fought all the way through the crowd to the back.

Ember goes to the turnbuckle and is getting ready for the Eclipse. Outcomes Jessamyn Duke to ringside and hops on the apron. Ember is looking at her when the ref comes over and tells her to get off the apron. Marina Shafir comes from out of the crowd and pushes Ember off the ropes and onto the floor. The ref did not see Marina who is now kicking Ember on the outside.

Renee: I hate the Horsewomen.

Paige: Paul Heyman promised us that the Horsewomen would be watching Becky Lynch’s title defenses.

Becky now gets up and hits Jessamyn with a suicide dive. Jessamyn, the referee, and Becky all go to the outside. The ref is out. Becky and Jessamyn start going at it. Marina runs over to double team Becky. She knees Becky in the back. Jessamyn and Marina pick up Becky and drop her on the ring apron. They roll Becky into the ring. The ref is still out.

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.

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. Becky wins the match but paid the price and she is definitely hurting as a result of this match.

RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION Becky Lynch vs Shayna Baszler

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. Becky tried to put her in the disarmher but her arm is too damaged. Baszler gains the advantage again. 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.

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.

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

Kayla: Mandy have you put your issues aside with Sonya?

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

Paulie and Stephanie are talking in the back when Charly Caruso walks by.  We can hear Paulie say that’s a good idea let’s do it.

Charly: Stephanie have you decided who Charlotte’s opponent will be?

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.

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.
