For the Night is dark and full of promos.
After a long day at work, I went home with the idea to relax for a while and watch what is happening in NXT! Most of the show was based on long promos, as I enjoyed Bayley vs. Asuka's.
Two matches in NXT. Two victories. One SmackDown! appearance.
Billie Kay (aka Jessie McKay) is experienced wrestler, whom accomplishments we have already cited. She traveled the world to refine her skills. She's talented. Billie and her fellow Australian Superstar Peyton Royce (KC Cassidy) deserve more TV time.
The situation in NXT's women's division get heated, last evening. We know who will face Ember Moon this Saturday, but we'll talk about it soon. We saw the match that I was talking about before- those with the many debuts in it.
Let see how SDL booked it whole active women's division for SummerSlam PPV, this Sunday!
This is how ROH named its women's talents (wrestlers, valets and backstage workers).
At this point there are 6 women signed, officially to ROH's roster. On their official site you can't see them all! Because it was not refreshed (it's an epidemic wrestling promotion web-sites non-updating or updating from good to worst), the last time we check on it.
This Sunday's SummerSlam 2016 is promising us two women's matches. One match per brand.
The Blue brand doesn't have their top prize for the women. They are fighting for the competition and the script. RAW on the other side, has top prize and top competitors, who will fight for it. SDL is booking all of it's active women wrestlers. And at the top of that Asuka will face Bayley in a rematch, the night prior SummerSlam!
It's time for our RAW overview and results, plus a little dose of analysis.
As I have told before: I just need to watch the matches by myself and I had that opportunity a day after the show, at the evening. So my RAW results comes on Wednesday, because I watched the show on Tuesday. Of course I watch the WWE.com short videos to get the idea of the segment (match or other angle).
So let's start it! Work!
(Work, B***h! ;) ) 1. SHE'S DEFINITELY NOT "THE MOST GIRL"
AWOW Team expected two important things to happened at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II (or Back 2 Brooklyn) - Women's title match and long anticipated debut!
Both things are equally important for the women's wrestling connoisseurs. Of course the title match is important because it has to compete with WWE Women's championship rematch at SummerSlam, for rating. I don't know actually which of the both rematches I want to see the most and can't wait to watch. All I know is that Bayley and Asuka are under serious pressure. Many expectations and controversy is surrounding that fight.
On the other side we have Ember Moon's (aka Athena) arrival. We know that it is happening, but we don't now how and when exactly it will be happening, during the Takeover.
DREAM A (BIG) LITTLE DREAM OF NIA JAX
This week there was no squash match!
I know that we were a little bit ... unsatisfied with Nia's old-new turn! It's nice to mark the fact that she can dominate (almost)everyone, but all that feeding with indie talents... Maybe they don't want to eliminate her NXT roots. Maybe this is the idea! She just does what she does in NXT!
Nothing bad. Actually we enjoy the idea, but we still think that she must defeat someone of the "veterans". Two women Superstars, can helped her. We already suggested Alicia Fox.
This week we suggest angle between Nia and Summer Rae.
Summer is a sort of tweener.
She is not a typical heel.
So she can do the thing her character does the best: annoying the other women Superstars...
She can trash-talking behind Nia's back. Of course Nia will appeared behind her and will hear all of the Rae's words. Jax will challenge Summer and will crush her after some offense by Rae.
There we have a Squash mat…
After two great debuts at SmackDown Live, we are heading back to RAW!
1. LANA KISSED THE WEDDING CAKE!
The Ravishing Russian was put on dysplay this week, as a "victim" of Roman Reigns "cruelty"!
Actually this angle was sort of fun. Lana's hysteria was funny. Her jump over the wedding cake was funny. It's nice to see that lady involved in her husband's rivalry with Reigns. Accompanied Rusev is not enough for her character, she needs more action and this week she get some.
Actually I prefer to see Lana in the video like "Look who is training in the Performance Center, with Nikki Bella". I know that she had several appearances on NXT Live Events, but I think that she can participate in a Mixed Tag Team matches with her beloved Rusev (as beginning). Her Wrestlemania moment wasn't that long, but she still has what it takes and if she think that she can do it, I think that she will be one tough challenge for the other women in RAW.
All she nee…
#1. GAIL KIM DOMINATED AGAIN!!!
After nice victory over fellow Knockout Madison Rayne last week, in this week's pre-taped episode Gail Kim met some challenge.
She has to met the champion Sienna and Allie in a handicap match.
We are blaming WWE of erasing the past of it's indie women's wrestler, while TNA did the same with Allie, better known as Cherry Bomb.
Well she has new (annoying) character, she is screaming, little assistant of Mrs. Maria Kanellis-Bennett and constant baggage of Sienna. But idea that she doesn't know how to wrestle is... funny?!?
Yes, during the whole Handicap match, Allie was the comical element, who scream and asking to be tagged in. When she entered the ring she did something ridicules and tag back!
At the end Gail ended that foolishness by pinning Allie and went another step forward.
It looks like almost every media in USA, who is specializing in "Wrestling News", wants a piece of Paige!
Everyone forget what an amazing wrestling talent is this young lady and how hard she works to be there, where she is - in WWE!
NXT is pre - taped, but we still can dream about some interesting matches. Bayley and Asuka eventually will sign their contract for NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 2, at August 20, 2016, beside that we've saved some ideas for one women's match in the show!
Let's dream for a while about next Shine 37 edition. Me and my colleagues in AWOW are sitting down all afternoon to create this "epic"-partial, Dream Match Card. #1. EPIC CHAMPION NEEDS A EPIC CHALLENGER
