THE CHAMPIONS' OVERVIEW

The championship in pro-wrestling is the award for hard working, great character, ultimate talent or even the greatest promotion you could have for a while. To be the Champion, makes you the face of a brand, company, division. It's one of the way to make a trail in the wrestling's history! To write your name into it!

Today we are taking a good look at the current WWE Women's Champions and we are suggesting top 3 #1 Contenders. We are looking at the symbolism of the current champion's character, her skills and evolution. 

RAW: THE LAND OF THE HEELS
Yes, we were kind of a little bit surprised (just a little bit)! Alexa Bliss is the new RAW Women's Champion and all we could say is "Wow! What a quick rising to the top!". 

SKILLS:

I love her promo this Monday - once again she proves that is best with the mic and she can throw insults on her fellow Superstars with an ease! I love her mic work. 

Her in ring skills? For me she is one of the women with a lot of potential. She balanced her set from  standard moves like DDT to high risk maneuvers like Twisted Bliss and her back flip knee combo. She's athletic and she works well. You can't expect her to execute every move like it's real - that is kind of impossible. American wrestling is for entertaining, but this doesn't make it less dangerous. So Bliss acrobatic performance are risky and we appreciated that. Of course the chemistry is important and she was blamed for the lack of it, while working with Mickie James (a different generation competitor, with a different technique), but for us Bliss is good enough and her push to the title reign is a prove on its own.

SYMBOLISM:

Alexa Bliss as a character is the type of a bully. She insults everyone, she is overconfident. She is mean. The symbolism of her reign is the same as the Charlotte's reign, but more primitive. She's just the bully who wins until it's victims take a stand or more stronger bully smash her. 

While Charlotte has been a spicy heel, vintage, with heritage, Bliss is like a mean school cheerleader. Oh no, nothing wrong with this. It's sweet and tricky! That is what the creatives and Bliss want us to think, "She's cute and tiny! Sweet" and at the next moment you watch her nailing down her opponents with a vicious moves.

EVOLUTION:

Do you remember that blueberry-like, shiny girl, who dared to challenge Sasha Banks for her NXT Women's title? Yes, that nice blond girl is gone , a long time ago. She grown up into a red-wearing vicious heel, going to several transitions from Harley queen to Wicked Witch, now to Bully #1 in RAW.  

Alexa reached so far as the first woman to held both RAW and Smack Down Live women's belts. I just can't wait to see what's in store for her next. 

Top 3 #1 Contenders*:
 *We are not including Bayley, because she still has her rematch in front of her. We decided to include Paige, because this will be a great way for her to return and to compete in a war of words and vicious in ring battles against Bliss.

Nia Jax
Sasha Banks
Paige

SMACK DOWN: LAND OF OPPORTUNITIE
Everyone is happy for Naomi and I think that many of you are agree with us that this was supposed to happen earlier in her career. Naomi waited so almost five years to reach this well deserved spot in WWE.

SKILLS:

Are you kidding me? You must be blind, to deny her great wrestling skills, her work ethics, her gimmick's transitions. She works well with the mic. She made the transition face-heel-face with an ease. Her entrance is one of the greatest. Her moves set is making you wondering "What she is going to do next?". Naomi is skilled in every possible, required for pro-wrestling way. WWE are really luckuy to have this natural talent in their roster and as their SDL Women's Champion.

SYMBOLISM:

I don't know! Even as a heel, accompanied by Tamina in the past, Naomi was always charismatic and you have that feeling, that she was villainous, with a serious reason. Now Naomi is the symbol of The Glow, that shine with a good, pure light, bringing an honor and heroism to the ring. 

Naomi's character is more than a dancing woman, with breathtaking moves. She's a real hero. Someone who shine bright and chase the darkness away. 

EVOLUTION:

From a Funkadactyle to Glowing Goddess, Naomi walked a really long and hard on a moments way to the top. She had her heel period. She was one step close to then-Divas title at several occasions, facing the likes of Eve Torres, Paige and AJ lee, for the belt. 

 Top 3 #1 Contenders*:
 *We put Tamina over Carmella, Nikki Bella and Becky Lynch, because we want to see her working against her former ally! That will be a good push.

QUICK FACTS ABOUT SMACK DOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP:

INAUGURAL CHAMPION: 
BECKY LYNCH

LONGEST REIGNING CHAMPION:
 BECKY LYNCH - 85 DAYS

SHORTEST REIGN:
NAOMI - 9 DAYS

 NXT: THE LAND OF TOMORROW
Undefeated! Nightmare for every NXT former and current competitor in the women's locker-room! Unstoppable! One of The Best In The World! 396 days reign on the top of NXT's women's division.

Asuka is all of this!

SKILLS:

I will start with her speech and mic skills and no, I will not insult or joke with her English! I like her short speeches and phrases. Actually her entire look, her body language, while she is in the ring or in a backstage segments are speaking enough.Sometimes there is no need of words! I think that her character is even unique with her poor English and I like her this way!

Her wrestling skills are obviously perfect! She is undoubtedly one of the Greatest female competitors, ever involved with WWE and I can't wait to see her shaking up the main roster (that will be a real shake-up). Her pureasu/shoot style of wrestling is really something different and fresh for WWE and it's a challenge for every women in the company.

SYMBOLISM:

Asuka's character is a symbol of the Dominance, the female-warrior type character. Her colorful image may full you, but her 100 colors(in her attire and hair) are the colors of war, not of fashion. She's ruthless during a battle. Some kind of crazy. But at the same time she brings a lot of respect and traditions with her entrance, only.

Asuka is the symbol of the modern and strong woman from the land of the Rising Sun. Fearless and fearful. Exotic and raw.

EVOLUTION:

Asuka's evolution started long before NXT, in Japan and USA's indie circuit.  Her path in NXT is a constant of a victories. In NXT she reached the top of her skills. There is nowhere else to go, form this point. She's in the plateau. That's why we didn't see her for weeks. 

Her reign is just a reign of total dominance. After 396 days, I think that we only want to see someone to dethrone her (like Ember Moon).  

Top 3 #1 Contenders*:
*We didn't put Billie and Peyton in here, because they had their chance. Ember had it too, but her rivalry with Asuka is just beginning and it's more competitive that Kay and Royce, could bring. We chose Nikki and Ruby as a possible contenders, because both of them built some great momentum in NXT and they deserves a shot. Cross even has the right to challenge Asuka, because she was kind of tricked by the Iconic Duo, during the Fatal-4-Way Title match.

NXT WOMEN'S BATTLE ROYAL PT. 1: TRIBUTE TO THE FALLEN

After week of dynamic RAW and SmackDown Live, with whole women's divisions put on display in a in-ring and segments action, NXT decided to finished the week with an amazing almost 20 minutes Battle Royal with 15-established and future Superstars, with two special appearances.
We decided to separate our article in two. The first part will be about the fallen competitors in the early stage of the match. The article's gradation is from the least expected to win to those who were the pleasant surprise and were a real game-chagers - the best for us. I want to share my private disappointment about Danielle Kamela's and Deonna Purrazzo's missing.  But at all it was great and there was that pleasant surprise.

AWOW: WWE SMACKDOWN LIVE RESULTS AUG.23, 2016

Three segments with women's appearance.

Nikki Bella's cheered return on SummerSlam has its consequences. But before that there was two important things happening.

1. LOOK AT THE NEW GOLD, WAIT IT LOOKS FAMILIAR!

THE JAPANESE WAVE

From Asuka in WWE NXT to Sumie Sakai in ROH. Japanese women started their invasion on separate waves, embodied the spirit and tradition of Japan - a highly patriarchal and closed culture. But all these famous pro-wrestlers fought a hard battles to become a Superstars in their native land and then to be called in the 'Bad West' and to make some name for themselves and for Japan's honor and fame worldwide.
Today we are looking at several really great names, who breaks the barriers between East and West, not just crossed them. We will talk about the problems that surrounds these Japanese sensations appearance in USA.
