A-Z of Women’s Wrestling

My own A-Z of women’s wrestling, whether you’re a fan or have no idea where to start – here’s my breakdown:

A is for Asuka

From taking Joshi Wrestling by storm to being the longest running NXT Women’s Champion, Asuka is easily one of the best wrestlers of today. Currently she is tag teaming with Kairi Sane on SmackDown and it probably won’t be lot until they’re Womens Tag Team Champions.

B is for Becky Lynch

C is for Charlotte

Take a look at Charlotte’s career for all information about her.

D is Delilah Doom

They’re not currently a stable but hopefully WWE makes them a stable soon.

G is for Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling

Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling (or GLOW) started in 1985, this was during a time where women’s wrestling was considered a novelty act and the women were known as actresses playing characters. It originally ran from 85 to 01 and was then revived by Ursula Hayden from 01 to present day. GLOW even has a TV show on Netflix but this a a fictionalised version of reality.

One of Japan’s finest wrestlers who debuted in 2006. Hiroyo is another winner of the DDT Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship and wrestles in infamous Joshi promotion – Stardom. Her career has been amazing full on Championships and appearing in last year’s Mae Young Classic. I’d love for her to be in WWE full-time.

I is for Ivory

Easily one of the best wrestlers to set foot in a WWE ring and before then she was in GLOW. During a time when women’s wrestling in WWE was all about looks, Ivory was one of the ones who stood our because of her in ring talent. In WWE, she was women’s Champion 3x and has spot in the WWE Hall of Fame.

J is for Joshi Puroresu

What women’s wrestling is known as in Japan. It has given us some of the best wrestlers in the world from Io Shirai to Momo Watanabe. With companies like Stardom, Sendai Girls’ Pro Wrestling and Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling, there’s plenty to see and you can start with any of them.

Trish had an amazing feud with Lita and another memorable one with Mickie James. She retired in 2006 and returned with Lita to being the women’s Royal Rumble, all women’s PPV along with tagging with her.

Money In The Bank Predictions

It’s grabbing the briefcase season! It’s RAW vs SmackDown to grab each briefcase (so much for just Survivor Series being RAW vs SmackDown). Another year where to me the winners aren’t that predictable, will Becky Lynch stay 2x Champ? Will Kofi stay WWE Champ? Let’s get predicting!!

Becky Lynch (c) vs Charlotte – SmackDown Women’s Championship

Ah another chapter in the Lynch/Flair saga, a lot of people seem to be getting bored of these two feuding but not me. These two always work fantastically together, just look at their Evolution match. Just like Charlotte vs Nattie, these matches will always be gripping. I want Charlotte to win, I’m always going to want Charlotte to win. Yeah she’ll be a 9x Champion, but there’s a reason for that – she’s amazing.

Becky Lynch (c) vs Lacey Evans – RAW Women’s Championship

Double duty for Ms Lynch, let’s hope they have a decent gap between these matches so Bex isn’t too tired. I want Bex to retain. I don’t think her and Lacey’s feud should be done yet, they bounce well off of each other and with one Championship, they could focus on a fantastic feud. I do want Lacey to become RAW Women’s Championship, maybe have her win at SummerSlam.

Kofi Kingston (c) vs Kevin Owens – WWE Championship

It’s not time for KofiMania to be over and that’s all I’m going to say.

Seth Rollins (c) vs AJ Styles – Universal Championship

Honestly, I don’t think Styles needs to be a big Champ again just yet, I’d rather Styles go the United States Championship. Rollins should hold the Championship for a lot longer, establish it more. There hasn’t been a Universal Champion to actually establish it as something worthwhile.

Roman Reigns vs Elias

Have Elias win. For the love of absolute fucking god, he deserves a PPV win. Let Reigns be the one to put him over, that Strowman/Reigns feud put Strowman over big time. Plus we all know what WWE stands for. Walk. With. Elias.

The Miz vs Shane McMahon

Its still odd that Shane-O is wrestling a lot, he’s become such a jackass heel and it’s rather amusing. I want Miz to win though, it’s about time he turned heel again.

Daniel Bryan and Rowan vs The Usos

Bit odd that two separate brand tag teams are going head to head, must be part of the Wild Card. I want Bryan and Rowan to win, they’re great heels.

Tony Neese (c) Ariya Daivari – Cruiserweight Championship

Neese is going to retain, he’s only just got the Championship and it’s going to be months before he drops it.

Samoa Joe (c) vs Rey Mysterio – United States Championship

Not sure who I want to win. On one hand, Joe’s always fantastic with a Championship in hand, on the other Rey is just Rey and you always want him on top.

Sami Zayn vs Drew McIntyre vs Andrade vs Baron Corbin vs Ali vs Randy Orton vs Finn Bálor vs Ricochet – Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match

This should be fucking great. Ali, Ricochet and Bálor will absolutely create some brilliant ladder spots. I want Drew McIntyre or Andrade to win both men are main Championship ready and either win would be a fantastic win and cash in.

Naomi vs Nattie vs Nikki Cross vs Carmella vs Ember Moon vs Bayley vs Dana Brooke vs Mandy Rose – Women’s Money In The Bank ladder match

I don’t see Carmella becoming 2x Miss MITB just yet, I’d love for any of the other women to win. Each woman would bring something interesting and unique to being Miss MITB. I’d love for Dana to actually be Champ, I’d love for Bayley to cash in on Charlotte, it’s never a bad thing for Nattie and Naomi being Champ. There isn’t a single bad choice for Miss MITB.

Updated – Alexa Bliss hasn’t been cleared due to a concussion, so Nikki Cross has replaced her. Nikki would also be an excellent choice for Miss MITB.

Addiction and the WWE

During the height of the wrestling’s boom in the 80’s, wrestlers were using drugs to bulk up, to fight pain and generally just to make it through the day. It was seen as some sort of normality, as much as any part of a wrestlers life. The wrestlers felt untouchable; winning championships, getting fans and women. Nothing could take them down. Nothing apart from addiction.

The number of wrestlers deaths that have been cut short due to drug overdoses or effects bought on by drugs is scarily high. A mere Google search can unearth all the suicides, heart attacks and other such diseases. It’s utterly heartbreaking to see talent like Eddie Guerrero and four of the five Von Erich’s cut short due to the allure of drugs. Painkillers to kill the pain of injuries, their strength the relief addictive, steroids to get the desired figure to be put on top and cocaine because who could deny the love of feeling like a King? Wrestlers did it all and many in a lethal cocktail.

You only have to look at The Dynamite Kid to see how bad steroid addiction could be, once he even held a shotgun to his ex wife’s face. Kurt Angle even said on the Stone Cold Podcast – “if you had a prescription, you could get away with it.” wrestlers frequently used this loophole to take drugs that management would be okay with, taking incredibly amounts just to function. The gimmick from the ring was a lifestyle many indulged in, partying like mad and sleeping with as many women as possible.

In the ring, they were untouchable wrestling made them God’s, outside the ring was a much darker story. Kept awake by pain, wrestlers would take Soma (a muscle relaxant) in order to sleep, awake and dealing with pain, Oxycodone was the only way for them to cope. Before the death of Eddie Guerrero, there was no stringent wellness policy in place, so any wrestler could get away with pretty much anything. Deaths came thick and fast. Bam Bam Bigelow, Test, Curt Hennig, Crash Holly, Road Warrior Hawk, Luna Vachon, Miss Elizabeth were just some names who died from drug overdose or heart attacks due to prolong drug use.

WWE as a company were involved in a massive steroid trail in the early 90’s with Vince McMahon being tried for purchasing anabolic steroids for wrestlers. Hulk Hogan even testified against Vince, due to the case being riddled with errors and the underwhelming Hogan testimony, Vince was acquitted. There was a drug testing policy put in place, but this was just for show and nothing seen that serious. So with drugs seemingly okay with management, it was easy for stars to become hooked. It was no wonder stars were dying so alarmingly frequently.

It wasn’t just drugs that were a problem. Alcoholism was also a major problem, stars like Jake “The Snake” and Razor Ramon had serious drinking problems that affected their in ring performances and daily lives. It was a grim time for the wrestlers, sure they were beloved but addiction always slunk it’s way into everything they did.

Times have thankfully changed, since a better wellness policy has been introduced. Substances that were one considered a lifeline are now forbidden, the wrestlers look a lot healthier and happier. Wrestlers of today are a lot less likely to die of drug overdoses or drug related problems, it’s a much better time for WWE.

The Consistent Unreliability of Dirtsheets

Wrestling is flooded with dirtsheet websites, whether official or not, they’re everywhere and we cannot escape them. However, there’s a lack of reliability in many of the so called news sites. A lot of it is merely copy and paste journalism instead of people finding out information for themselves and alleged sources are used constantly. Unfortunately, a lot of people believe what’s being reported, the salaciousness is alluring to many who long for gossip. The dirtsheets often don’t care about the validity of these stories, they just want to be the first to get out the information which are often full of preposterous things. Occasionally, some wrestlers disprove the story on them, but there’s never a retraction or admit of fault from the dirtsheet, just a firm belief that they are right. I’m not saying all stories published are incorrect, but when there’s lack of confirmation and validity in the information put out, it makes it impossible to tell what’s correct and what’s just another bogus tale. It’s time dirtsheets stopped copy and past journalism, stories that are absolutely crazy and work on releasing well researched articles.

WrestleMania 35 Predictions

Cue the parade, and start playing your kazoos because for the first time ever – WOMEN ARE MAIN EVENTING the show of shows!! With more matches than you can shake a stick at, and more twists and turns than a rollercoaster, this Mania has had an odd build-up. I’ve no doubt it will be great but there no denying the storylines could’ve been told better, but alas we are here once again. So in the words of Tony Chimel:

“LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!” (yes I know it’s Mania but dammit I wanted to do that)

Ronda Rousey (c) vs Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair (c) – RAW and SmackDown Women’s Championship for title unification

*deep breath* okay, let’s break this down. Bex won at Rumble and quickly it all derailed and Charlotte was added. Shenanigans happened at every corner, Bex has been “arrested” twice (Char and Ronda “arrested” once). Bex has also been suspended twice, Ronda called wrestling fake and Charlotte beat Asuka for the SD Women’s Championship. My god this has not been simple and now we find out there’s title unification!!! I just hope this is so the women can have a separate brand because this is just a giant clusterfuck. *takes another deep breath* I can see Charlotte winning, she was the last Divas Champion, the first ever RAW Women’s Champion and the first woman to win all Championships available to women (tag Championships not included). However, the outrage of Bex potentially losing, (hell she could surprise me and win) will be thunderous and Twitter will go into absolute meltdown.

Batista vs Triple H – No Holds Barred – If Triple H loses, he must retire

Big Batista has decided to take a lil break from Hollywood to whoop Triple H’s arse. This will be a pretty brutal match because undoubtedly both men will rip shreds into each other. I think Batista will win. With XFL starting next year, I can see Vince putting all of his time into that and letting Trips fully run WWE. Big dream? Maybe, but I’d love for it to happen.

Kurt Angle vs Baron Corbin – Kurt Angle’s retirement match

Okay, let’s get this out of the way with. I’m a fan of Corbin, but he shouldn’t be the one to retire Angle. Look at the career Angle has had, to me it should be an impactful huge match. Obviously I want Kurt to win. I’m also hoping Cena is a part of this somehow because he’s allegedly going to be there but it’s all hush hush, so who knows.

AJ Styles vs Randy Orton

This match just seems like it’s all about respect. Orton doesn’t feel like Styles built SmackDown or something like that. I dunno, not really paid attention to this feud. Going to pick Styles to win because I like the idea that he’s picking off all the legends to be one of the greatest that WWE has had.

Samoa Joe (c) vs Rey Mysterio – United States Championship

There’s a chance this match isn’t happening because Rey got injured, but I’m going to predict this anyway. Rey wants to do this for his son Dominic which is sweet but I want Joe to retain. It’s taken forever for Joe to get a Championship on the main roster and I really don’t want him to lose it yet. Plus Joe could really elevate the US Championship.

Buddy Murphy (c) vs Tony Neese – Cruiserweight Championship

I wish Mike Kanellis was in this match, but Tony Neese will make a great next Cruiserweight Champion. Buddy Murphy has had a good long reign.

Brock Lesnar (c) vs Seth Rollins – Universal Championship

I will never ever want Brock to win, I cannot stand him, Seth bring the red belt home baby!!!

Drew McIntyre vs Roman Reigns

It’s absolutely fabulous that Reigns is back, I missed him in WWE BUT I want Drew to win. He’s successfully dismantled The Shield and it’s logical that he defeats Reigns to finish them all off.

André The Giant Battle Royal

Don’t care who wins honestly, this is just a pointless filler match so more people can be on the card.

Woman’s Battle Royal

See above

Sasha and Bayley (c) vs The Divas of Doom vs Nia and Tamina vs The IIconics – Woman’s Tag Team Championship

I still want Sasha to be a singles star and heel, she needs a long and a successfully defended title reign dammit!! With title unification who knows when that will happen. I want The Divas of Doom to win, it’s high time Nattie had a WrestleMania moment and I love her teaming with Beth.

Shane MacMahon vs The Miz – Falls Count Anywhere

I like this storyline a lot, them being buddies and winning the tag Championship was absolutely brilliant. Shane-o turning on Miz was great and now his dick heel character is so enjoyable. I don’t mind who wins this one.

The Usos (c) vs The Bar vs Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura vs Aleister Black and Ricochet – SmackDown Tag Team Championship

It would be so cool for Rusev and Nakamura to win, yeah their tagging is odd and sure I still wish RuRu was tagging with Aiden English but I absolutely love Rusev and I still want him to win. I’m also over with Black and Ricochet tagging, it’s boring now.

Bobby Lashley (c) vs Finn Bálor – Intercontinental Championship

Finn is bringing back the demon!! Although I don’t know how he’s going to demon crawl down to the ring, so I’d imagine it’s done differently. Anyhoo, I was Bálor to win. Not a fan of Lashley’s character and Lio Rush being his hype man is so damn annoying.

Daniel Bryan (c) vs Kofi Kingston – WWE Champion

Wow, WWE took us on a ringer with this match but we’re finally getting KofiMania!!! There’s nobody I want to win more than Kofi, he should’ve already have 2 WWE Championship reigns by now. I also love how Bryan is now calling him a B+ player which is what he was called 5 years ago before he won. Kofi absolutely needs this win and a decent title reign. New Jersey is going to feel the power as KofiMania takes over, it’s not just the fans that want him to win, over Superstars do too – that says everything about the man.

Thank You Bella’s

Sunday nights episode of Total Bellas, Nikki Bella announced that she was joining her twin – Brie in retiring. The Bella’s joined WWE all the way back in 2007 and since then have had 3 title reigns between them, plenty of tag team fun and lots of gorgeous gear. The Bella Twins are more than just wrestlers, they’re entrepreneurs with many companies and they’re strong leaders in women empowerment and positivity. The Bella’s are ⅓ of the reason I got into women’s wrestling (Natayla being the third)

I’m definitely going to miss them in the ring, so thank you Bellas!!

Carmella – The Moonwalking, Trash Talking Princess of Staten Island

Carmella is a brilliant wrestler and her character is absolutely fantastic, currently she’s working with R-Truth as a completely hilarious duo. Carmella is a one time SmackDown Women’s Champion and the longest Miss Money In The Bank.

Carmella applied to be a part of Tough Enough in 2010, but pulled out to become an Laker Girl and she moved to LA, three years later Carmella found her way back to WWE and signed to NXT. Her debut was as a hairdresser with Enzo Amore and Big Cass, she then appeared saying she lost her job due to the actions of Amore and Cass, she then announced she wanted a position in NXT. Carmella’s in ring debut was against an unknown wrestler dubbed only as Blue Pants, Carmella defeated her on two occasions but then lost to her due to an accidental distraction from Amore.

Carmella became manager for Amore and Cass during their feud with Buddy Murphy and Wesley Blake, Carmella had a match with their manager – Alexa Bliss but lost due to a distraction from Blake and Murphy. Carmella has a feud with Eva Marie and in January (2016) she won a Battle Royal for a shot at Bayley’s NXT Women’s Championship in which she lost. Carmella appeared on the main roster PPV Roadblock accompanying Enzo Amore and Big Cass with their match against The Revival for the NXT Tag Team Championship. Once Amore and Cass were called-up to the main roster, Carmella became a solo star and even had another chance to go for the NXT Women’s Championship, however she lost in the qualifying match after being pinned by Nia Jax.

In July of that year, Carmella was called up to SmackDown in the brand split and her first main roster win was against Natalya. Carmella lost at SummerSlam alongside Becky Lynch and Naomi after a returning Nikki Bella pinned her. On the SmackDown afterwards, Carmella attacked Nikki and the two began to feud. Carmella took part in a six-pack elimination match at Backlash to decide the inaugural SmackDown Women’s Championship, she was the last to be eliminated by Becky Lynch. Carmella also took part in the 5 on 5 Survivor Series Match in which she was the first to be eliminated. Carmella lost to Nikki Bella at TLC thus ending their feud, she also exposed Natalya as the one who attacked Nikki Bella taking her out of the Survivor Series Match.

Carmella then began teaming with James Ellsworth after proclaiming she found him uniquely attractive, Ellsworth began accompanying her to the ring and even walked her down to the ring at WrestleMania 33. Carmella teamed with Natalya and Tamina Snuka as The Welcoming Committee, they feuded with Becky Lynch, Charlotte and Naomi, The Welcoming Committee were victorious at that years Backlash. Carmella became a participant in the first ever Women’s Money In The Bank in which she won, even though James Ellsworth climbed the ladder to grab the briefcase for her. Two nights later, Carmella was stripped of the briefcase but she won it again that night this time with no help from Ellsworth.

Carmella broke her partnership with James Ellsworth after he lost an Intergender Match against Becky Lynch, Carmella took part in the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble in 2018 but was eliminated by former rival Nikki Bella, she also took part in the first ever Women’s Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34 but was the first one eliminated by Sonya Deville. Two nights after WrestleMania, Carmella cashed in her MITB contract on Charlotte Flair after a debuting IIconics attacked her. Carmella was now SmackDown Women’s Champion.

Carmella entered into a feud with Asuka, they had a match at Money In The Bank in which Carmella retained due to a distraction from a returning James Ellsworth dressed as Asuka. Carmella retained against Asuka once more at Extreme Rules, Carmella lost the SmackDown Women’s Championship at SummerSlam after being pinned by Charlotte in a Triple Threat Match along with Becky Lynch. As her title reign came towards its end, R-Truth was saying he wanted a title match against Carmella in typical R-Truth fashion. In the end, Carmella agreed to manage Truth against his match against The Miz so his wife Maryse couldn’t interfere. Afterwards, she became his manager full-time, fun and dance breaks ensued, at the first ever all Women’s PPV – Evolution Carmella even had a dance break with WWE Legend Ivory.

Carmella and Truth became partners on the second season of Mixed Match Challenge, they lost the first three matches before defeating Lana and Rusev to get into the playoffs. They then continued to defeat everyone else and won season, their prize was a holiday to anywhere they wanted (Truth decided it would be WWE headquarters) and the last number in their respective Royal Rumble matches. Carmella and Truth had a dance break with the McMahon’s on SmackDown’s 1,000th episode and they even had a dance break as Santa and Mrs Claus on Christmas. Carmella had got pinned by Becky Lynch in a Triple Threat to determine the new SmackDown Women’s Champion, Carmella then teamed with Naomi (after Royal Rumble) as the Fabulous Glow for a chance to become the inaugural Women’s Tag Team Champions at Elimination Chamber.

Carmella, is definitely going to become an even bigger star in WWE. She’s already made a huge impact on SmackDown and is only going to win more Championships.

Here’s some more pictures of Carmella:

Sasha Banks: Bossography

A Step In Th Wrong Direction

Fastlane Predictions

Ah it’s the PPV where at every opportunity, an annoying car sound is made. Seriously what’s with that? It really puts me off watching it, anyhoo let’s predict this event:

Charlotte vs Becky Lynch – If Becky wins then she’s re-added to the RAW Women’s Championship at Mania

*deep sighs* this is is a cluster fuck. I really don’t know what WWE were thinking with this storyline. I mean it’s gotten ridiculous. I get that Bex is an unstoppable force that won’t obey the rules and whatever but this has gotten out of hand. I think Becky will win on Sunday and get re-added but honestly I cannot wait for this to be over.

Sasha Banks and Bayley (c) vs Nia Jax and Tamina – Women’s Tag Team Championship

I refuse to call Sasha and Bayley The Boss n Hug Connection, it’s a daft name. Now I’ve gotten that off of my chest, Sasha and Bayley are retaining. They haven’t been Champions for long enough to lose, plus it’s high time Sasha had a successful title defence. Even if it isn’t for a singles Championship *insert eye roll emoji here*

The Shield vs Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre

First of all, yay The Shield are back together!! Second of all, can Drew please stop being put in tag matches? He needs a decent solo run. I want The Shield to win. I always want them to win. They’re the reason I got into WWE so I’ll always love them.

Asuka (c) vs Mandy Rose – SmackDown Women’s Championship

WWE haven’t given Asuka a decent title reign and that blows! I mean she was undefeated in NXT and Champ for 510 fucking days!! Let her become heel and go psycho Asuka that’ll be fun. I want her to retain, not that I don’t love Mandy, but her potential needs to be realised as SD Champ.

Daniel Bryan (c) vs Kevin Owens – WWE Championship

I want Bryan to retain so he can go into Mania Champ.

The Usos (c) vs MizMac – SmackDown Tag Team Championship

I don’t see Miz and Shane O Mac winning, I love The Usos as Champs and they should walk into Mania as Champs.

Rey Mysterio vs Andrade

I want Andrade to win, I’m a massive Rey fan but I’m all aboard the Andrade hype train. He’s awesome, he’s badass and one day he’s going to make an absolutely unstoppable WWE Champion.

The Revival (c) vs Aleister Black and Ricochet vs Bobby Roode and Chad Gable – RAW Tag Team Championship

The Revival haven’t done a lot of winning since they became tag Champions so let’s hope they don’t lose on Sunday, I want Black to attack Ricochet and then have them feud.
