Previously on WOW…
Havok and Hazard ran through team after team after team on their way to the top. The Voodoo Dolls downed the Psycho Sisters while Fire & Adrenaline toughed it out and fought from behind. These three teams met in the semifinal triple threat, and the team that went down were Siren and Holidead. But in the end, that leaves the biggest underdogs in WOW against the biggest threat. Only one team can remain standing to hold up those tag team championships!
Siren focuses back on Princess Aussie.
“Oh my sweet and innocent child. Your path awaits, and now this is your trial.” One path is destiny, full of greatness and things yet to be seen. Her time has come, and she must choose her path. “The throne of darkness will show you the light. For you, my sweet child, will win this fight. For it is you who has been chosen, and the cards hold your life.” Siren laughs as Holidead is dealt in Princess Aussie’s path. “And so, shall it be!”
Welcome BACK to WOW!
“Are you kidding me?!” Razor and the Psycho Sisters are upset that they’re not part of the historic tag match. Instead, all three are competing against “a dancer, a cheerleader and a whiny victim of bullying?” Those three are not the ones expected, but there’s no turning back. Did Chantilly Chella and her team not learn their lesson? But that’s fine, the party girls and Keta Rush better bring it, because the Psycho Sisters are ready.
Chantilly and her team respond by saying the Psycho Sisters were stupid for not thinking someone would answer their open challenge. “We got this, girls! Let’s get it!” #GetLit!
Six Woman Tag: The Psycho Sisters VS Chantilly Chella, Sassy Massy & Keta Rush!
The Bully Buster joins the party and they’re ready to rock! But will Razor, Fury and Mesmeriah make minced meat of the fan favorites?

Massy counters Razor with a drop toehold and runs the ropes to kick Razor down! Chella turns things around on Mesmeriah and Massy helps Keta. Keta and Massy whip Fury into Razor, then Chella lines up Mesmeriah to whip into them! The Psycho Sisters are three deep as Chella dropkicks them all!

The trio of chaos comes out on top! Razor gets the mic to say, “That was a message! A message to whoever wins the tag tournament finals tonight!” The Psycho Sisters warn that they’ll have a big shiny target on their backs, and the Sisters love shiny things. “We don’t care if you’re ten feet tall! We don’t care if you’re four feet tall! We don’t care if you’re a goody-two-shoes or a demented monster,” those tag titles truly belong to the Psycho Sisters! Who will these sinister sisters be stalking after tonight’s series finals?
Reyna Reyes VS The Disciplinarian w/ Samantha Smart!
The Pearl of the Philippines is ready to shine in the light, but she’ll have to put up a fight against the meanest teacher in all of South Carolina! Will Robyn Reid ruin Reyna’s rise in the rankings? Or is she truly the one that lacks discipline?

Reid wrenches back to give the wristlock, but Reyna wrenches and wristlocks again. Reid throws a big forearm to break free! Reid whips but Reyna reverses to arm-drag! And then a springboard arm-drag!

The Pearl uses Smart’s smarts against her! Will Reyna continue to rise until she’s top of the class?
WOW Media catches up with the Monsters of Madness backstage.
Jessicka Havok and Hazard got through the semifinals and are now competing for the WOW Tag Team Championships. What are their thoughts ahead of that match? “Are you kidding me?” Is that even a question? They told us all what they were going to do, and “literally paint a path of annihilation” to show the world what they’re all about. And it might be in the best interest of Fire & Adrenaline to forfeit now. Not that it’ll matter, the Monsters will have the titles either way. Spread the word.
WOW Media also catches up with Fire & Adrenaline.
In response to that ultimatum, these two say that luck brought them together, but the hard work is what got them here. Greatness is not determined by size. All you need is passion and courage. They were in the right place at the right time, maybe got lucky, too. But the fans have supported this fight for their dreams, and it’s time they prove they belong here! “Even if nobody believes in us, we believe in us.” Will having faith in their friends be enough to conquer even the biggest challenge of their lives?
The finale is coming, with a match we’ve all been waiting for!
After using every trick in the book, after treating Jungle Grrrl, Serpentine, Reyna Reyes, Lana Star and Faith the Lioness as pawns, Tessa Blanchard will have to finally face the biggest and the baddest! The Beast is the last contender left, and she wants what she helped The Born Legend get in the first place! Will Tessa still be the best when she has nowhere to run and nowhere to hide?
WOW Tag Team Championship Series Finals: The Monsters of Madness VS Fire & Adrenaline!

Winners: Fire & Adrenaline, Fire by pinfall; NEW WOW Tag Team Champions
The Monsters of Madness let their arrogance get the better of them! And now they’ve lost the match! The underdogs win out and are on top of the world! Fans know “You Deserve It!” But with so many teams eyeing the prize, how long will Fire & Adrenaline be able to keep this going?
Wait, who are these three attacking them?! Double camel clutch and basement dropkicks! Malia Hosaka is doing the damage while her two proteges keep the champions down! Fans are thunderous with their booing as the champs are thrown out of the ring! The shirts say “EXILE”, but what does this mean for the WOW Tag Team Division?!
Malia has the mic to shout “SHUT UP!” When she first heard about WOW, she called the “powers that be” to tell them that while this place claims to have the best women’s wrestlers, she was going to see that for herself. “Lo and behold,” she got exiled for her attitude. For her figure. For her age. For upholding tradition. But she has emerged with her best women in the world. They’re not multi-generational wrestlers living off their daddies and grandpas. They’re not Born Legends but living legends. Malia climbed up the ranks through the most elite women of the industry! So if any Woman of Wrestling thinks they have what it takes, bring it! Will Exile eliminate all those who merely think they’re the best?
A great episode right here! The Six Woman Tag was not quite what I expected, I was hoping we’d get Princess Aussie finally joining the Voodoo Dolls but maybe that’s for the season finale. Chella, Massy and Keta Rush gave the Psycho Sisters a good match, but in the end, a duo and a random third is not enough to take on a true trio. Reyna VS Disciplinarian was a great match in the middle, Reyna gets one more win before the season ends so expect her to become something in season 3. Then the tag title match was great, another rare case where the main event gets that main event feel, in both time and story. The Faces winning out of nowhere was great, it doesn’t really weaken the Monsters of Madness, but obviously gives us Faces to take on a new Heel faction.
This Exile group coming out of nowhere was a great moment, and I feel this trio might be taking on groups like the Psycho Sisters or Voodoo Dolls plus Princess Aussie in more trio matches, while also going after the tag titles. Season 2’s finale is the next episode, with the epic showdown of Tessa VS Beast, that has to be going Beast’s way with how the story has gone. At the same time, Exile calls out Tessa with the lines about multi-generational and literally the phrase, “Born Legend.” Tessa might weirdly join up with a duo to answer this open challenge. At the very least, Malia Hosaka might get herself in on the world title scene come season 3.
My Score: 8.5/10
