PLAY BY PLAY

Survivor Series was about Brand Warfare, AND the Cruiserweight Championship!

The Juggernaut and the Beacon of Light renewed their rivalry for one more epic battle! Buddy Murphy promised to prove that he was truly unstoppable, but Mustafa Ali vowed not to let the title get away from him again. Both men gave it their all, but in the end, Murphy had just a little bit more. Murphy said he was willing to Hell and back, is that what it’s going to take to take that title away from him?

 

Buddy Murphy is here!

And the Cruiserweight Champion has a mic to speak. “Welcome to MY 205 Live!” LA cheers for Murphy. But before the show gets going, he has a question: “Did you really think Mustafa Ali was going to beat me at Survivor Series? Really?” Well it doesn’t matter if fans did, their opinions mean nothing to him! Murphy proved to Ali and to the world that “you can’t stop the unstoppable!” But here comes Tony Nese! The Premier Athlete is Murphy’s fellow Body Guy, and he has a match! Murphy heads down to the ring with him to show his support.

Tony Nese w/ Buddy Murphy VS Noam Dar!

The Scottish Supernova returns from NXT UK and his unsuccessful yet very impressive attempt at the WWE United Kingdom Championship. Now Dar looks to make an impact towards the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, can he do it against 205 Live’s Ab Master?

The bell rings and they circle. They tie up, Dar gets a headlock. Nese powers out then flexes right in Dar’s face. Dar shrugs it off, it doesn’t matter if Nese has bigger muscles. They tie up again and Dar gets the wristlock then shifts to a headlock. Nese powers out and runs Dar over, then flexes again. Fans boo, and Dar goes after that arm! Dar wants to wrench it but Nese swings on him. Dar gets a waistlock but Nese the standing switch. Fans rally as Dar elbows out and speeds things up. Dar holds ropes to bait Nese in, then gets him with a table top. Dar grins and fans applaud. Nese rushes in, but he gets caught into a spinning, spinning, spinning, spinning backslide! TWO but Nese is dizzy.

Dar puts Nese on the apron, then ducks to sweep the legs. Nese hits the apron, and Dar builds speed to blast him off with a basement dropkick! Fans fire up as Dar goes out. Murphy stands in Dar’s way, but the ref backs the champ off. Dar drags Nese up but Nese drives him into the LED apron. Nese then fireman’s carry to a gutbuster! Murphy mocks Dar while fans boo and jeer. Nese toys with Dar, then drags him up into the ring. Fans rally for Dar as Nese stalks him. Nese runs, and runs Dar over with back elbows! Cover, TWO! Nese keeps on Dar with body scissors! Dar endures the squeeze while Murphy tells commentary he and Nese run the Division. Fans rally and Dar pushes back to a cover. TWO and Nese keeps on the body scissors.

Dar goes after the knees, but Nese shifts to a rear bearhug. Dar endures again, and fights back. Nese squeezes tight but Dar fights free with headbutts and forearms. Nese knees low and Murphy hypes him up, but fans boo. Dar reverses the whip then dodges Nese’s tackle! Murphy coaches Nese up and Nese back elbows Dar. Nese hops up but Dar sweeps the legs again! Nese hits the mat, Dar takes ai. He throat chops, headbutts and uppercuts! Nese is in the corner again, and Dar runs in for a forearm smash! Northern Lights suplex, cover, TWO! Murphy is relieved, and he coaches Nese again. Fans rally up and Dar aims from a corner. Dar runs in but gets a back kick. Nese knee lifts then roundhouses, but Dar jumps over the sweep. Dar jumps on for a guillotine!

Nese stays up and powers out, but Dar fires off forearms from both sides. Dar runs into a jab, and Nese runs for the bulldog hotshot! Then springboard triangle moonsault, but Dar gets out of the way! Nese lands on his feet, and Dar leaps on for another guillotine! Fans rally as Dar pulls on Nese’s head. Nese powers out to his own Northern Lights! Bridge, TWO! Nese catches his breath while going over to Dar. He drags Dar up for a waistlock, but Dar pries his way out. Dar kicks and kicks Nese, then victory rolls, TWO! Dar brings Nese up, but Nese shoves him away and rocks him with a forearm on the rebound! Nese brings Dar around but Dar sweeps the legs yet again! Dar gordbusters then basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Nese survives and Dar is frustrated.

Dar refocuses as he aims from the corner. Murphy swipes at Dar, so Dar wrecks him with a boot. But Nese hits a big knee! And a German Suplex into buckles! Dar is down, Nese goes side to side, Premier Kneese! Cover, Nese wins!

Winner: Tony Nese, by pinfall

The Body Guys worked together to make sure both men remain victorious. And Murphy adds insult to injury on Dar as he scrapes him out of the ring! With these two working together, will they both be unstoppable? But if Nese keeps winning, won’t he just end up facing his buddy for the title?

 

Mustafa Ali speaks.

“I’m hurt.” And not just physically, but mentally and emotionally. Ali doesn’t want to forget the pain, though. He isn’t running from it, he’s embracing it. Ali wants to feel every single ounce of it. “That way, when I’m tempted to stay down, I’m gonna remember exactly how I feel in this moment, and that, that is what’s gonna make me rise back up.” So Ali should actually be thanking Murphy for the pain. “Because now, I am gonna work even harder, I am gonna dig even deeper.” This pain will become power because now, Ali really will have what it takes to become Cruiserweight Champion. Does the Heart of 205 Live have the fire he needs to break through?

 

Drake Maverick speaks with his head referee.

Maria Kanellis’ threat needs to be taken serious, which means something could happen during the main event. The referee understands, and will be ready for anything. He leaves and Cedric Alexander walks in. Maverick assures Alexander doesn’t need to worry about that. But congrats on winning again. Yes, it feels good, and getting back on track at Lio Rush’s expense puts a smile on his face. Maverick must admit he has a 205 Live dream match. Next week, Cedric Alexander & Mustafa Ali VS Tony Nese & Buddy Murphy! A major tag team main event. Alexander loves that idea, too! Can the Heart & Soul conquer the Body Guys?

 

Akira Tozawa & THE Brian Kendrick VS Fidel Bravo & ???

The unlikeliest duo tries another go as the Stamina Monster and the Man with a Plan look to get on the same page after miscommunications and misunderstandings cost them a match against Drew Gulak & Jack Gallagher. Speaking of, the Ungentle Men’s Club are backstage giving “insight” to this odd couple. Gallagher used to look up to Kendrick, but now “he’s aligned himself with a wailing scoundrel”. Gulak says Tozawa & Kendrick will never be a real team, because they have nothing in common aside from their “misguided sense of vengeance.” Not like G & G, the #SubmissionCommission of 205 Live. If Tozawa & Kendrick have the gall to step up again, “They will tap out.” Maybe or maybe not, but can Kendrick & Tozawa first get through their opponents tonight?

Kendrick starts with ??? and they tie up. Kendrick gets the wristlock then the cravat. ??? powers out but Kendrick arm-drags him down. Tozawa tags in together with Kendrick, he whips ??? for double back elbows. Tozawa then hits his screaming senton and covers, TWO! Fans “AH! AH!” with Tozawa as he keeps on ??? with chops. And chop, and then the feint to jab! ??? sits down, and Tozawa stomps him down. Tozawa brings ??? up and tags in Kendrick. They double whip again, and double boot ??? down! Kendrick covers, TWO! Kendrick drags ??? up, tag to Tozawa. Tozawa kicks ?? low, but ?? knees back! Tag to Fidel Bravo! But Bravo runs into a hip toss! Tozawa hits the shining wizard, cover, TWO! Tozawa puts Bravo in the corner, tag to Kendrick, and they combine to give Bravo an enziguri complete shot! Cover, TWO!

Kendrick drags Bravo up but Bravo gives body shots. Bravo shoves and dodges, ?? tags in. Kendrick back drops Bravo and sees ?? coming. He rocks ?? with a back elbow, then kicks Bravo out, but ?? attacks with a big forearm. ?? throws haymakers and whips, but Kendrick reverses to a calf kick! Fans rally up and Kendrick tags Tozawa! Bravo is in, too, but Tozawa rallies with kicks. He swings, slides under and hits the spin kick again. Tozawa keeps moving, climbing up top. Missile dropkick hits! Cover, but ??? breaks. Kendrick drags ?? up and out, then goes after Bravo. Sliced Bread hits, then Tozawa adds the SUPER Senton! Cover, Tozawa & Kendrick win!

Winners: THE Brian Kendrick & Akira Tozawa, Tozawa pinning

A much much better showing for these former Cruiserweight Champions. Kendrick even joins in on the “AH! AH!” and rather likes it. But will they be able to maintain this friendship when going against a much more simpatico and sinister duo like Gallagher & Gulak?

 

Backstage interview with The Body Guys.

Next week’s main event is already considered “the biggest tag team match in 205 Live history.” Wait is it for those tag team titles everyone keeps talking about? No, it’s against Alexander & Ali. He was joking, Dasha, obviously. Because this is so ridiculous. Murphy has beaten Alexander and he has beaten Ali. Just imagine what he and Nese can do to both of them at the same time. Nese hangs back to tell Dasha she’s better than that. That’s a bit harsh. But are Alexander & Ali better than the Body Guys are making out?

 

TJP w/ Mike & Maria Kanellis VS Gran Metalik w/ the Lucha House Party!

The King of the Ropes and his amigos are feeling pretty great all things considered, such as their “lucha house rules” victory of The Revival on Raw. But here on 205 Live, things are still rough going as they haven’t gotten even with the mask stealing “Cruiser-Great”, or with Mr. & Mrs. Kanellis who have aligned with him. The First Lady issued a warning before Survivor Series that the final phase of her plan would happen once all three luchadores were back, and now all three luchadores are here. Will Kalisto and Lince Dorado be able to help Metalik avoid another loss of both match and mask? Or are they walking right into Maria’s trap?

To add insult to injury, Mike and TJP wear the stolen masks! This disrespectful trio mock the “Lucha! Lucha!” dance, and that riles up LHP to no end. Kalisto leads the charge as the luchadores storm up the ramp, but Maverick rushes out to stop this from happening. Things are heated as it takes extra referees to keep LHP from attacking TJP and Mike. Maverick says TJP gets in the ring, but everyone else is banned from ringside! Now it’s just the FilAmFlash and Gran Metalik as things begin.

Metalik and TJP rush each other, but Metalik dodges to dropkick TJP! TJP bails out but Metalik keeps moving, to FLY out onto TJP! Direct hit! Metalik puts TJP in the ring, and springboard splashes! Cover, TWO! TJP bails out again, but Metalik pursues. Metalik puts TJP in and runs at TJP in a corner. TJP dodges but runs into a roundhouse! Metalik hits the Sling-dog! Metalik walks the ropes and leaps, but into a takedown! TJP gets the legs for the modified Scorpion Deathlock! Metalik crawls and gets to the ropes! TJP lets go and fans tell him “You suck! You suck!” Metalik rolls out, TJP slingshots to plancha! Direct hit, but TJP is still sore from the landing. TJP drags Metalik up and puts him in. TJP rains down right hands, then scrapes his shoe on Metalik’s face! Er, mask.

TJP drags Metalik up, snapmares him down, then slingshot sentons on top! Cover, TWO! TJP keeps his cool as he grabs Metalik for a clutch. He hooks at the nose and mask, but the referee reprimands him. He lets up, but then suplexes Metalik. TJP rolls through to then back suplex Metalik down. Cover, TWO! TJP keeps on Metalik with a chinlock. Fans rally as Metalik endures. Metalik gets up and fights back, but TJP knees low. TJP gut wrenches but Metalik arm-drags out! Metalik runs and handsprings to arm-drag TJP again! Metalik CHOPS TJP, then whips him. TJP goes Spider-Man, then gets Metalik with a springboard switch into a waistlock. TJP chicken wings Metalik into a Dodon Buster! Cover, TWO! Metalik survives and TJP grows frustrated. Fans rally up as TJP looms over Metalik. TJP drags Metalik up and whips, drop toehold into a deathlock. And Muda Lock!

Metalik endures as fans rally up again. They chant “Lucha! Lucha!” as Metalik fights his way out. Metalik is free of the bridging facelock, but TJP has the legs. Metalik drags himself over and gets a ropebreak! TJP claims he, the technical master, needs help undoing the lock. The ref helps out, giving him extra seconds to have Metalik enduring the pain. Metalik is finally free, but TJP is back on him. TJP throws forearms in the corner, then whips. Metalik reverses but TJP goes up and headscissors Metalik away. TJP hops up but Metalik swing kicks him! Metalik climbs up while TJP is dazed. Metalik brings TJP up, but TJP fights back. TJP tosses Metalik down, but Metalik rolls through! TJP is stuck in a backwards Tree of Woe, Metalik dropkicks him out! Cover, TWO! Metalik grows frustrated but fans are rallying behind him.

Metalik stomps TJP in the drop zone, then climbs up. Moonsault, gets boots! TJP drags Metalik up, sit-out powerbomb! Cover, TWO!! Metalik lives and TJP is shocked! TJP drags Metalik into a drop zone and heads up top. TJP aims, but Metalik gets out of the way of the senton so TJP rolls through. Metalik runs, handsprings, but TJP evades. Metalik chops, walks the ropes and hits the missile dropkick! Cover, TWO! TJP lives and Metalik is again frustrated. Fans rally up as Metalik fireman’s carry. TJP slips out and pushes Metalik onto ropes. TJP triangle jump dropkicks Metalik back! Metalik staggers while TJP catches his breath. Metalik runs over to huricanrana TJP off the apron!! Both men crash and burn to the floor! Fans chant “Lucha! Lucha!” as Metalik puts TJP up and in.

Metalik drags TJP up, fireman’s carry, and spin into the Metalik Driver! But Metalik keeps going, top rope for the tight rope walking springboard elbow! But he’s caught into an armbar! Metalik makes it a cover, TJP pops out to the Kneebar! Metalik endures and drags himself to ropes, ropebreak! Fans are fired up as Metalik survives again. TJP grabs the pinata, but Metalik CHOPS him! Metalik keeps the pinata safe, but turns around into a huricanrana! But Metalik sunset flips through, Metalik wins!!

Winner: Gran Metalik, by pinfall

Victory for lucha libre! The Cruiserweight Classic finals rematch goes the other way now! Kalisto and Lince join Metalik in the ring to celebrate, but then Maria comes out screaming “How could you!? How could you?!” Maverick tries to calm Maria, but Maria is furiously desperate. She goes on about having a family to support, but what is going on? It’s a distraction so that Mike can SMACK the Lucha House Party with a chair! It was all part of the plan. Mike knocks Lince and Kalisto down and TJP gets Metalik with the Kneebar! And then Mike SMACKS Metalik on the back with the steel! TJP and the Kanellises get away with it all, but is this just the beginning of Maria’s master plan?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A great episode of 205 Live, with so much good stuff going for it. It’s great to see Noam Dar is back, he really should get more crossover play as both a WWE United Kingdom and Cruiserweight Division superstar. Dar’s match with Nese was good, but of course Murphy helps Nese win. It’s a bit of a shame that Kendrick and Tozawa get along in a match with jobbers, this is why a team like the Daivari Brothers or the Singh Brothers need to be part of 205 Live so they can be the jobber team and not random local talent. I only knew Fidel Bravo because he was on today’s NXT, and I don’t think even commentary knew his tag partner’s name. The rematch of Kendrick & Tozawa VS “The Submission Commission” (great name actually) is going to be fun since it likely won’t be a miscommunication finish this time.

And tag teams seemed to be a subtle theme of the night. I really like that we’re getting that dream tag match, Body Guys VS The Heart & Soul, and I loved that Murphy made a comment about the Cruiserweight Tag Team Championships rumor! That has been floating around for the better part of this year and still nothing, and these four guys would definitely be good choices for such a thing. But Murphy & Nese VS Ali & Alexander is going to be great, and could go either way both in result and in story. If Body Guys win, Maverick might make some kind of Body Guys Civil War for winter. If Ali and Alexander win, it might lead to Alexander getting that rematch he’s owed. Either way, it’ll be a lot of fun, and maybe Cruiserweights can be on two PPV main shows in a row with TLC coming up.

The LHP segment was great, from getting the others kicked out to the match itself, which was on par with said Cruiserweight Classic finals, and then the attack after. These guys are making strong cases for those would-be tag titles, but I’m thinking now that “lucha house rules” was introduced on Raw, it might be used here on 205 Live in the blow-off match. TJP & Mike VS LHP in full, aka a handicap match. Though, I actually don’t want it, unless it’s lucha house rules of Metalik and Lince, Kalisto ringside to keep an eye on Maria. Though in a perfect booking, I’d have The Revival come over and team with TJP for a lucha house rules Six Man Tag to have full integration of Raw with 205 Live.

My Score: 8.6/10

Sr and Jr go to pin the downed opponents and the ref takes long to get into position and this causes Panther Sr to complain to the ref.

Niebla Roja, Kraneo, and Volcano vs Shocker (Luciferno), Mephisto, and Rey Bucanero

Well there’s Luciferno. Replacing Shocker. Volcano starts out with Luciferno and Luciferno tries to knock over Volcano by running into him but he can’t. Volcano hits a few arm drags then feigns a dive. Bucanero is in his bullet club shirt so I guess since there’s the Fantastica Mania tour he’s reminding people he’s kind of in there. Kraneo gets in with Bucanero and Bucanero tries and fails to slam Kraneo. Mephisto gets in with Kraneo and tries to work him over but Kraneo hits him with a splash. Mephisto rolls to the outside and Roja hits a dive on him. Kraneo throws Mije on top of Luciferno.

Roja chases Luciferno up the ramp to start this round. Bucanero and Mephisto met Luciferno and they regroup on the ramp. There’s a ton of posturing nobody wants to get in there with Kraneo. So Volcano comes in and he gets the advantage on Luciferno. Volcano tries to do a bounce off the ropes double arm drag but slips and fails and then gets stomped out. Bucanero ends up in the crowd after Volcano fights back and sits on a girls lap and talks to her. Roja gets in there with Mephisto and they exchange strikes. This has been a pretty sloppy match. They team on Roja to get him out of there as he got the leg up on Mephisto. Volcano and Kraneo sandwich Bucanero and Luciferno, then hit running attacks in the corner. They go to do a double team move on Mephisto but he moves and they collide. Mephisto launches Roja in the air and then kicks him in the groin. He goes for the pin but the ref pulls him off and declares Roja the winner. He couldn’t have possibly thought he’d get away with that. Second Fall: Niebla Roja wins via DQ from Mephisto

I believe Roja has challenged Mephisto to a one on one match come Tuesday. He challenges him mask vs hair. I’m pretty sure that won’t happen. Bucanero knows all about losing to Niebla Roja in Apuesta matches. They start to answer him, then corner Roja and stomp him out.

Winners: Niebla Roja, Kraneo, and Volcano

  • WOW World Championship: Santana Garrett VS Jungle Grrrl; Jungle Grrrl wins by count out, Santana Garrett retains the WOW World Championship.

PLAY BY PLAY

Welcome to WOW!

The Women of Wrestling return to television with this season premiere! And what better way to kick it off than with THE WOW World Champion, Santana Garrett! The real-life Wonder Woman hits the ring with a newly designed title belt, and Santana is so happy to be here in front of the fans. And she’s especially proud to have her father, “TNT” Keny G watching live and in person. Both daughter and father are emotional over this moment. They’ve been through a lot, and they’re both so thankful that he’s here to cheer on his baby girl. The fans are happy for them, but here comes someone to crash the party! It’s Tessa Blanchard!

The second generation “Born Legend” stares down Santana, and takes the mic. Santana has her dad here, huh? Isn’t that sweet? Tessa says Grandpa Blanchard ran over his territory back in the day, while stepdad Magnum TA is one of the most respected men in this industry. And let’s not forget Tessa’s own father, THE Tully Blanchard, is a WWE Hall of Famer and an original Four Horseman! Keny probably laced up Tully’s boots. Actually, no, Keny probably carried Tully’s bags. WOW booker David McLane tries to keep the peace, but Tessa says Santana should be the one carrying her bags! David says Tessa coming in here bragging about her family tree doesn’t give her the right to just interrupt proceedings. Tessa says she’s not out here just to brag, she’s out here to go after the WOW World Championship.

David says that to get a shot at the title, you have to earn your way up. You don’t get something just because of dad, stepdad and granddad were special. Tessa says that because of who her dad is, she might as well be handed that belt. David asks Tessa to please leave. Tessa has to work for a shot. That’s fine by Tessa, she doesn’t want any trouble. But she will let Santana know that both she and the belt are Tessa’s. Santana says that she doesn’t see any of Tessa’s dads here. So get to the back of the line, girlfriend! Tessa smiles and nods, she knows she’ll get her match. But with the title on the line in the very first episode, will it be Santana Garrett or former champion, Jungle Grrrl, that Tessa will be targeting in the coming weeks?

 

The Beast has issued an open challenge!

She knows she’s the biggest and the baddest Woman of Wrestling, and looks to prove her superiority. She dares any woman in the locker room to step up and prove her wrong. While watching backstage, The Governor’s Daughter, Abilene Maverick, took advantage. Maverick tricked Stephy Slays about match times, and Slays was just a lamb to the slaughter! Slays realized she was fooled, but didn’t want to be a coward. She jumped into the ring, only to get demolished! Tonight, Slays wishes to prove she’s not so easily crushed. She takes on The Beast again, will she get payback on both Beast and Maverick? Or will it be more of the same?

Introducing: Fire.

“My mom grew up in Georgia, my dad grew up in Mississippi, so I’m Southern Blood.” Fire was brought up in a strict upbringing, and she was a gifted student so there was a lot of pressure put on her to succeed. When she entered middle school, she went “off track”, and no one around her understood why. Fire was bullied for being smart, to the point of death threats. Wrestling was her way to feel stronger. Through wrestling, she realized anything was possible, like she could escape this reality. Fire steps up for who she really is, and for what she who to be. “If you want it enough, if you fight for it enough, there is no stopping you.” There is no stopping Fire now, will she blaze a trail to the title?

Abilene Maverick spots Stephy Slays in the medical area.

Wow, poor Slays didn’t learn her lesson the first time. But then Maverick gets a taste of her own medicine as The All Natural pushes her out of the way. It seems there’s someone with a bigger attitude than even Maverick. Will Khloe Hurtz bring the pain tonight?

 

Eye Candy VS Khloe Hurtz!

Sugary sweet but ready to fight, Eye Candy will look to ruin #KhloeTime tonight. Will Candy leave the fans with a sugar high? Or will the All Natural leave Candy crushed?

The Voodoo Doll asks the WOW roster, “Would you like to know what The Siren has in store for you?” Let the cards tell your fate. The Devil: Siren is the change that is coming to Women of Wrestling’s landscape. The Five of Wands: currently, there is a power struggle in the locker room. But that top spot will soon belong to her. And finally, Death: Siren is the final transformation, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. Siren has been to Hell and back, and has regained her power. She will sacrifice WOW to the darkness! Who will be the first?

 

WOW World Championship: Santana Garrett VS Jungle Grrrl!

The Wonder Woman of Wrestling is just one of eight children in her family, but she and her father grew closer through wrestling. Keny G brought her into the fold, and now they’re both living a dream together! But she again faces the Alpha Female, the one and only woman to have yet to be pinned in a match! Jungle Grrrl became WOW World Champion, but ended up getting in over her head in a Triple Threat. Santana pinned The Beverly Hills Babe to win the title, shocking everyone. But now Santana must prove she can defeat Jungle Grrrl 1v1, can Santana prove she deserves to be champion?

Santana headlocks then wrenches the wrist. JG rolls and reverses to her own wristlock, but Santana rolls and handsprings to reverse back. JG uses the ropes to flip through and wrench Santana back.

Santana survives but JG keeps her cool. JG stomps Santana and heads for a corner. She climbs up to the top rope, familiar territory, and leaps for the Jungle Splash! But she flops! Santana hurries up but Tessa Blanchard appears! Tessa goes after Keny G’s oxygen! Santana rushes out at Tessa and a fight is on! Santana throws Tessa around and into the ring, but she wasn’t aware of a ring count! It hits 10, and Santana loses!!

Winner: Junger Grrrl, by ring out; Santana Garrett retains the WOW World Championship

Champion’s Advantage is the only thing that saves Santana’s reign, but she still got suckered by the Born Legend! And now Tessa brings the fight to Santana, with a Hammerlock DDT! But Jungle Grrrl gets back at Tessa with a Jungle Driver! Tessa screwed Jungle Grrrl over just as much as she did Santana, and now she has problems. But wait, The Beast goes after Jungle Grrrl! These top predators are face to face but referees hurry to keep them apart. Fans want to “Let Them Fight!” but TV time is running out just as things are getting wild! Will Tessa pay for her interference? Will The Beast replace Jungle Grrrl as the Alpha Woman of Wrestling?

 


 

My Thoughts:

Apparently, this isn’t the beginning of the Women of Wrestling’s history. They’ve been around for a long time, trying in 2000 but fading away, until being revived in mid-2012. But even if this wasn’t the true beginning, this was a good beginning for their AXS TV run. There’s a lot of backstory to get caught up on, but it would seem they made sure to give us those needed recap packages so new viewers aren’t too lost. Many of these alter egos and their elaborate packages make me feel like WOW is an all women’s version of Lucha Underground, which is known for having many wrestlers come up with alternate characters to fit their universe. And there are even shared talents between WOW and LU, such as Shaul Guerrero and Kobra Moon.

As such, the story behind The Beast VS Stephy Slays rematch was made rather clear. It was a good match and Slays got to show plenty of heart, but obviously heart alone isn’t enough. The Beast wins to establish herself as the monster Heel to new viewers. And with Abilene Maverick (Callee Wilkerson) picking on her, that seems like a story going forward. Maverick VS Fire (Taylor Lewis) was also a solid match, and Maverick won to help towards that story with Slays. Eye Candy (Willow Nightingale) VS Khloe Hurtz (Katie Forbes) was decent, and Candy wins mostly so that it isn’t all Heels winning. There are WOW World Tag Team Championships, but they’ve been vacated for years, so I’m wondering if any teams will form out of these midcard stories to give us more action with that.

The main event was pretty good, just not as a match. First, I wouldn’t announce time limits when we know the show is only an hour, it just seems like a waste. Second, Santana VS Jungle Grrrl really only got going when Tessa came out to Heel it up. Third, that 10 count was probably the fastest 10 count I’ve ever seen. But the brawl between Tessa and Santana, and then the impending brawl between The Beast and Jungle Grrrl just managed to salvage things. We have our stories going forward, and at the very least, I wasn’t bored to sleep. There are some things that need work, and this was a rather tough time to move into the television wrestling sphere, but this isn’t a bad program to give a fair shake.

My Score: 8/10
