Bodeen’s Top 5 Moments: NXT: The Great American Bash

NXT’s version of The Great American Bash was well received by many. What are Bodeen’s Top 5 moments?



NXT once again came to us this week from the Capital Wrestling Center as the black and yellow brand continued to deliver a great two hours of wrestling as we sew Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly make another chapter in their long history and more, but what stood out on the show this week? Let’s find it as we take a look at the top 5 moments from The Great American Bash edition of NXT

5. Johnny Gargano and Karrion Kross is made official for next week as Samoa Joe is made the special guest referee   

After weeks of tension ever since NXT: TakeOver In Your House, NXT Champion, Karrion Kross and Johnny Gargano would have a face to face confrontation in the ring as Samoa Joe and William Regal watched on. Gargano would continue to infuriate Kross as he mocked the NXT Champion, telling Kross that he was living rent-free inside his head even telling Kross that he was afraid of Gargano as William Regal made the title match between the two men official for next week.

Kross would then call out Gargano, telling that in reality people like Gargano get beat up by people like Kross. Kross would then make things personal, referencing Johnny’s wife, Candice LeRae stating it looked like he put on his wife’s jeans. As tension built between both men, Regal then stated that Samoa Joe would be the special guest referee in the match. Gargano would be the one to get the last word in, telling Kross that he could not tie up his wife’s boots, causing Samoa Joe to hold back Kross against a cocky Gargano.

Later in the night, Joe would talk about the match next week, stating that things will remain fair and impartial unless he is provoked. This was a simple but effective storyline that helped the build towards the NXT Title match between Kross and Gargano next week. This segment also did another effective job into building towards a potential match between a returning  Samoa Joe and Karrion Kross as tension continues to build between the two men.

4. Io Shirai and Zoey Stark take on Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae as Tegan Nox returns 

Late in the night Io Shirai and Zoey Stark would take on the woman’s NXT Tag Team Champions, Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae in a great match that also featured a huge return.  Shirai would get the upper hand of Indi Hartwell early in the match with Hartwell turning the tides after she dropped  Shirai face-first onto the turnbuckle, allowing LeRae to tag in and get the upper hand for her team.

Both teams would continue to go back and forth throughout the match with neither team getting the upper hand for too long. Late in the match, Hartwell would get tagged in as the lights went out. The Titantron would then show the battery that has been changing for weeks on NXT, with the battery finally reaching 100% as Tegan Nox made her return after a knee injury. The distraction would allow Stark to pin Hartwell for the win as Io Shirai and Zoey Stark became the new woman’s NXT Tag Team Champions. After the match Nox would attack LeRae chasing her off as Stark and Shirai celebrated their win.

Later it was revealed that Dexter Lumis carried Indi Hartwell out of the ring, advancing their romance. Despite just being used as a tag team the duo of Shirai and Stark has great potential especially given the experience of Shirai combined with the raw potential of Stark.

3. MSK defend their Tag Team Titles against Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher 

The Great American Bash would open with a huge clash of styles for the NXT Tag Team Titles as the high-flying duo of MSK took on the hard-hitting duo of Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Ciampa as both teams pushed each other to the limit in a great opening match. Tommaso Ciampa and Nash Carter would open things for their team with neither man being able to get a big advantage over the other, causing both men to tag in their partner. After more back and forth, Ciampa and Thatcher would get the upper hand as they unloaded strikes on Wes Lee and Nash Carter. Ciampa and Thatcher would continue to have the upper hand, unleashing submission holds and strikes onto Lee, until Lee hit Ciampa with a dropkick giving him the opportunity to tag in Nash Carter who turned the tide towards his team with the hot tag.

MSK would then showcase their high-flying ability as Nash Carter tried to hit a moonsault on Ciampa outside the ring, causing Timothy Thatcher to sacrifice himself, pushing Ciampa out of the way, allowing Ciampa to clothesline Carter back inside the ring as the match continued to go back and forth. Both teams would continue to push each other to their limit as Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher seemed to have the win after Ciampa hit Project Ciampa onto Wes Lee, only for Lee to somehow kick out to the surprise of Ciampa and Thatcher. Ciampa tried to put the nail in the coffin getting Wes Lee in position for a Fairytale Ending but Lee would reverse, allowing Carter to hit a Swanton onto Ciampa with Lee following up with a corkscrew, with Ciampa being saved from being pinned after Thatcher dragged Lee out of the ring.

A leap from the steel steps from Carter would be met with an uppercut from Thatcher as Thatcher and Ciampa had the win in hand as they hit Lee with the Fairytale Ending followed up with an Ankle Lock from Thatcher, however, things would go downhill for Thatcher and Ciampa as Ciampa tried to hit the hanging DDT onto Carter, allowing Carter to push Ciampa onto Thatcher to break up the submission hold. In the confusion, Lee would roll up Thatcher for the win, as MSK barely retained the titles against their opponents. This was a great match that not only made MSK look strong as Champions, but was another great showing for Thatcher and Ciampa who looked strong despite losing to MSK.

2. LA Knight and Cameron Grimes go to war for the Million-Dollar Championship

While on paper this was one of the weaker matches on the card, as LA Knight and Cameron Grimes are two performers who are generally more known for their promo work rather then in-ring work both men put on a strong match and to some degree exceeded fans expectations, especially after both men had the tough job of following the NXT Tag Title match. Grimes would start the match off strong against Knight sending him to the outside, followed up by a kick from the ring apron. Grimes would continue his assault on Knight with a crossbody to get a close nearfall early in the match. Despite some offence in from Knight, Grimes continued to dominate Knight throughout the early part of the match with Grimes hit a standing moonsault on Knight for another close near-fall.

Things would soon change, however, as Knight hit Grimes with a powerslam to get back into the match. After some back and forth between the two men, Knight would hit Grimes with an inverted TKO for a near-fall with Grimes still staying in the match even after LA Knight hit Grimes with a superplex. A furious Knight would grab the Million Dollar Title and bring it into the ring causing an argument between the referee and Knight, this would allow Grimes to roll up Knight with Knight reversing with a roll-up of his own which still wasn’t enough to win. Knight would once again try to use the Million Dollar Title, but would accidentally push it outside the ring, giving Grimes the opportunity to hit a poisonrana on Knight for another near-fall.

Both men would take the fight outside the ring with Knight hitting a DDT on Grimes right on the Million Dollar Title without the referee knowing. Despite getting back into the ring before the referee’s 10-count, Grimes would lose to Knight after Knight hit him with the BFT for the win sending Grimes to the broom, with Grimes now being forced to become LA Knight’s personal butler in what was a great match that made Grimes look like a top babyface. While their feud is far from finished Grimes being Knight’s new personal butler as the chance to have some entertaining segments as both men have such great charisma and chemistry working with each other.

1. Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole make another chapter in their history

After both men went to war with each at NXT TakeOver: Stand and Deliver, Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly would remove the bells and whistles as they went one on one in a traditional wrestling match. Despite being a standard wrestling match both men would show the same level of aggression that did in their unsanctioned match at TakeOver as both men put on an amazing main event and arguably had the best match on a card that was stacked from top to bottom. Early in the match, neither men would be able to get the upper hand as both men traded several counters as they escaped each other’s submission attempts and dodged strikes, however, Cole would be the first to get the upper hand after Kyle tried to hit a running knee on Cole from the apron only for Cole to move and hit a running neckbreaker on Kyle outside the ring.

Both men would trade holds and strikes throughout the match with Kyle targeting Cole’s injured knee, however, the roles would be reversed after Cole slammed O’Reilly’s knee into the ring post multiple times with both men now having one bad knee. Late in the match, Cole hit O’Reilly with a Panama Sunrise outside the ring, rolling his former Undisputed Era partner in the ring only for O’Reilly to get his bottom foot on the rope to avoid getting pinned. Cole then tried hitting the Last Shot on Kyle, but Kyle reversed it, allowing him to do a brainbuster on Cole. Kyle tried to finish of Adam with the diving knee from the top rope but Cole reversed, hitting Kyle with the last show, only for Kyle to somehow kick out at 2 to the shock of Cole.

Cole attempted in the Panama Sunrise once again in the match with O’Reilly kicking Cole in midair. However, the kick would cause O’Reilly’s injured knee to give out once again, giving Cole the perfect opportunity to hit the Panama Sunrise on Cole followed up by the Last Show, giving Adam the win in a great rematch and an amazing main event. Cole winning due to outsmarting Kyle is a natural way to set up for their eventual third match which will most likely be at the next TakeOver event.

These were my top 5 moments from The Great American Bash edition of NXT this week. What were your top 5 moments and did you think the rematch with Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly was better then their match and NXT: TakeOver: Stand and Deliver? Let us know in the comment section down below.

Greg DeMarco’s 2023 WWE SummerSlam Review

The biggest party of the summer comes to Detroit, when WWE SummerSlam 2023 delivers an action packed event that easily exceeds expectations.



Cody Lesnar SummerSlam

The biggest party of the summer comes to Detroit, when WWE SummerSlam 2023 delivers an action packed event that easily exceeds expectations.

WWE presents SummerSlam 2023 live from ford field in Detroit in front of over 59k fans–who provided an electric atmosphere. Overall the card featured either matches, many of them delivering at or above expectations.

Read on for my thoughts, and even some ratings!

How I am rating segments:

I am using “The Line of DeMarco-cation,” which is for entertainment. the line is if I was entertained. You can have three main results:

  • ABOVE the Line of DeMarco-cation
  • AT the Line of DeMarco-cation
  • BELOW the Line of DeMarco-cation

If necessary, i reserve the right to go WAY ABOVE or WAY BELOW. Significant segments can be rated. individual and overall ratings are totally subjective.

It’s simple: ENTERTAIN ME!

Logan Paul vs. Ricochet

  • Welcome to the biggest match of Ricochet’s career.
  • Samantha Irvin’s outfit matches Logan Paul, not Ricochet — SWERVE, BRO!
  • Ricochet is a star, and I love seeing him treated like one.
  • Rocket Mortgage is donating $5k for every move off the top rope? This match alone might accumulate half a million.
  • I know Logan Paul needs to catch a private jet to Dallas and that’s why this is on first, but this is the perfect opener.
  • If you didn’t know who Logan Paul was, you’d think he was just another member of the roster–and that’s the biggest compliment you can give to him. He’s a damn good heel, too.
  • Paul using Braun Strowman’s powerslam–will we get Logan vs Braun?
  • This might be the best match either have had in a LONG time.
  • Logan Paul just hit a Buckshot Lariat over the top rope and to the floor. Sorry Hangman.
  • I love that refs continue to have names – like former Greg DeMarco Show guest Eddie Orengo (as El Bandido Jr).
  • I’d love to know Ricochet’s powerlifting numbers. Dude is deceptively strong.
  • Logan Paul flew two-thirds of the way across the ring on the Springboard Froggy Splash
  • This match is spotty–yes–but watch and learn Young Bucks. They are strung together by psychology and it all makes sense,
  • LOVE that finish. Logan Paul wins (as expected), but Ricochet is protected.
  • Think about that – RICOCHET IS PROTECTED.
  • Hell of a match.

Winner: Logan Paul (pinfall brass knucks shot)

WAY ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes

  • That video package–amazing. It likely telegraphed Cody’s win, but I don’t think many expect Cody to lose.
  • I love when people question Brock’s presence. Did you hear that pop?
  • Cody got a hell of a pop, too.
  • You can tell how much Brock Lesnar respects Cody Rhodes, as he opens up the arsenal for him.
  • I love that Brock simply stands center ring as the ref counts Cody out. Brock wants to win–doesn’t care how. That’s a little detail that shows how brilliant of a character Brock Lesnar is.
  • This is the fifth time Brock has gone for the count-out–and I love the psychology.
  • Now Brock does care how he wins–he wants to break Cody’s will.
  • Wait, is this Cody Rhodes’ mystery twin brother Cory Rhodes?
  • That top rope Cody Cutter was fantastic.
  • Not sure when Brock’s shorts got ripped, but it adds to this fight.
  • That’s what this is, a fight. And that is Brock Lesnar at his finest.
  • It might have been a happy accident, but Cody’s hand bouncing off the bottom rope before he finally grabs it to break the Kimura is another amazing little thing.
  • Brock is so slow and methodical, but snatches people up for the F5 in a flash. So good.
  • Cody Rhodes wins, after THREE Cross Rhodes. Good shit.
  • Interesting that the show of respect from Brock to Cody is considered Cody’s arrival.
  • Or maybe it’s just the arrival of “The American Nightmare.”
  • I will be very interested–as will all of you–to see what’s next for both men.

Winner: Cody Rhodes (pinfall, three Cross Rhodes)

WAY ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

NOTE: Very interesting that Roman Reigns was featured in the PayBack promo, as well as Logan Paul. I wouldn’t expect either to be on that card.

Slim Jim SummerSlam Battle Royal

  • I have to admit, it just feels right to have Slim Jim back in my wrestling.
  • This better be good since it cost us Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus.
  • I hope Sheamus got a full entrance for the crowd.
  • Oh look, Omos still works here!
  • Chad Gable is so damn good.
  • Austin Theory is in this match? And didn’t get an entrance?
  • At WrestleMania 30, Big E was in the Andre The Royal Giant Memorial Battle Rumble, didn’t get an entrance, and didn’t even get to carry his Intercontinental Champion. And I don’t even think his elimination was mentioned by commentary (I’d have to go back and check).
  • Santos Escobar eliminating Austin Theory at least makes sense.
  • LA Knight barely breathes and the crowd gets ELECTRIC.
  • I haven’t made as many bullet points because this has actually been a really good battle royal!
  • I’d love to know who the agent was–fantastically done.

Winner: LA Knight (last eliminates Sheamus)

AT The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

MMA Rules Match – Ronda Rousey vs. Shayna Baszler

  • Some of the shots during the entrance make me want WWE to get rid of stages altogether, and stick with this type of entrance.
  • Also, it’s a reminder that I hate major wrestling events in daylight.
  • This being an MMA Rules Match seems to be a missed opportunity at having a special guest referee.
  • The fans DO NOT CARE About this match, and I see why.
  • I am all for Ronda being able to go out how she wants to go out, and the talent pushing their own idea forward. But sometimes, you gotta say no.
  • Some matches also play much better in an arena instead of a stadium (Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair from WrestleMania comes to mind). This is one of those matches.
  • Whenever NXT had an “unsanctioned match,” the ref wore all black. That’s what we should have done here.
  • Now we have doctors checking on Shayna? Really? I know we want to put over how tough she is, but…..
  • The crowd pops out of relief when it’s over.
  • Do this on Raw, not here. Give Becky and Trish this spot.

Winner: Shayna Baszler (technical submission, Kirifuda Clutch)

BELOW The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

Intercontinental Championship: Drew McIntyre vs. GUNTHER (c) 

  • My Peacock membership doesn’t let me see the video package here, and I am fine with that–it’s been a while since I’ve seen that AFLAC Duck, though.
  • Ludwig Kaiser must love doing the entrance, but honestly the act might be getting stale?
  • Corey Graves very poetic in pointing out that “records are meant to be broken.” That’s one of the core values of WWE at this point.
  • It does appear GUNTHER will be going it alone tonight as Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci are headed to the back. Let’s see if they stay there.
  • Interesting placement for this match, right after the ill-received MMA Rules Match.
  • Didn’t the internet tell us Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor was going on fourth?
  • Btw, this match is brought to you by Rocket Mortgage. Money talks, BAYBAY!
  • GUNTHER truly lives the “Ring General” gimmick.
  • As the match progresses, I honestly can’t see Drew winning here.
  • The simplicity of the finishing sequence really adds to GUNTHER: top rope slap fest, McIntyre crotched on the ropes, splash, lariat, powerbomb. Nothing fancy–trademark GUNTHER.

Winner, #ANDSTILL the Intercontinental Champion: GUNTHER (pinfall, powerbomb)

ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

World Heavyweight Championship: Finn Balor vs. Seth “Freakin'” Rollins (c) 

  • I presume we will get a bunch of Judgment Day shenanigans here, but I really needed Seth to go on last to further establish his championship. Instead, we are smack in the middle of the event (according to the Peacock slider, anyways)
  • Seth Rollins’ entrance + 58k people = a beautiful sight
  • The worst thing about this, to me, will be when Balor and Rollins are partners after Balor turns babyface.
  • Love Rollins tossing the vest at Balor.
  • Love the more unique start to the match.
  • Interesting that Rollins, with a win, moves to 5th all time for SummerSlam wins? I had no clue! Mr. SummerSlam anyone?
  • We keep naming refs, and I love it,
  • If you want an “inside look” at a match, start paying really close attention for a few minutes starting with the triplicate of dives from Seth Rollins. You’ll see a few things that the cameras picked up.
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE the Buckle Bomb into the barrier from Balor to Rollins. Should have known they’d do that, but it never crossed my mind. Brilliant.
  • Decent amount of overlap in the offense of this match and the one prior–in hindsight, they may have wanted to put GUNTHER/McIntyre on before Rousey/Baszler.
  • Fans boo’d the crap out of Damian Priest when he came down–but popped like hell for Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley.
  • I really enjoyed the story told with the Judgment Day. When Priest called for the briefcase to be used, it would have worked. When Balor called for it, it wasn’t going to work, and Damian Priest knew it. But he let Finn Balor sink himself anyway. That will definitely play again later when they fully implode.

Winner AND STILL World Heavyweight Champion: Seth Freakin’ Rollins (pinfall, Stomp on the Money In The Bank Briefcase)

WAY ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

WWE Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka (c) Bianca Belair

  • Very odd having Asuka enter second.
  • Charlotte Flair with the ode to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35 (IYKYK)
  • Did I miss the C4 ad read? I saw that Bianca Belair entered with some, which made me thing THAT was why she came in last, and now the C4 branding is around the ring, but no real mention? Or did I miss it? Was it only for Peacock Premium subscribers?
  • Very choppy match so far–and Charlotte has to basically stop the match to have Jessika Carr fix her outfit, leaving Belair and Asuka in the corner waiting until Asuka realized what was happening and tried to cover. The Double Natural Selection that followed was quite clunky.
  • Bianca nowhere near Charlotte Flair when the moonsault hit–is Bianca really that good? I seem to ask myself this during every big time Bianca match, dating back to WrestleMania 37 when I felt like Sasha Banks had to carry her.
  • I find myself wanting to fast forward to the finish, here. I’m not, but I kinda want to.
  • ANOTHER REF NAMED! Thank you, Michael Cole.
  • If IYO SKY cashes in here (which is easy to expect), I really hope it’s not right after Charlotte wins, getting her to #15. Granted, she could cash in DURING the match and make it a 4-way. But of everyone, I think Charlotte needs to eat the pin tonight.
  • We have now had medical personnel tending to one of the participants in the middle of each women’s match tonight–first Shayna Baszler, now Bianca Belair. Seems like a misstep on someone’s part.
  • Bianca with the heroic comeback, and a beautiful 450 Splash on Charlotte during the Figure Eight.
  • Charlotte gets misted but Bianca gets the pin???
  • Makes sense if we do the cash in here. as Bianca is hurt.

Winner, AND NEW WWE Women’s Champion: Bianca Belair (pinfall, small package)

  • Aaaaaaaand here comes IYO SKY.
  • I love Corey Graves telling Bianca to get the hell out of dodge.
  • IYO and Bayley take out everyone, and she is indeed cashing in.
  • Over The Moonsault, new champion, and the crowd goes nuts. Women’s Money In The Bank briefcase is still undefeated.
  • Nice World Of Stardom reference by Michael Cole, too.

Winner, AND NEW WWE Women’s Champion: IYO SKY (CMITB cash-in, pinfall, Over The Moonsault)

AT The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

There were some rough spots, but the cash in saved it for me.

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Match: Jey Uso vs. Roman Reigns (c) with Paul Heyman

  • I am timing this from the second Jey Uso’s theme hits through the end.
  • Man, Mike Rome is on one, and I am not sure if that’s a good thing. He doesn’t sound as fantastic as he usually does.
  • 12:34 from Jey’s music hitting to the bell ringing.
  • Roman is so slow and methodical, I don’t know if he realized Jey was going to dive so soon. Jey connected with Roman’s back, but that could have been really really bad.
  • I know this is Tribal Combat, but given the use of stairs earlier tonight, we might as well consider the stairs legal.
  • You know it’s an important match when Roman Reigns hits The Drive By, as he did on Jey Uso.
  • Table, Kendo Stick, and more early.
  • Jey clotheslining Roman over the top rope (with the Kendo Stick) and hitting the dive makes me think Jey got slightly lost earlier when he did the dive to a kneeling Roman’s back.
  • That was a MASSIVE powerbomb onto the chairs!
  • 35 minutes in (remember, since the start of Jey’s entrance, so 23 minutes into the match) and this is definitely just a touch slow. The story is amazing, so that’s my only complaint so far.
  • I have to wonder if Roman knew he was bleeding when he hopped the barricade to go into the crowd.
  • Aaaaaaaaaaaand here’s Solo Sikoa. That should surprise no one. We gotta get the whole family involved, right? At least the whole Bloodline.
  • Solo declining to help Roman up might be starting Solo’s arc in the story, but it wasn’t apparent enough and commentary had to fill in the blanks.
  • 50:22 since Jey’s entrance is the point where Jimmy shows up (pulling Jey out of the ring).
  • Jimmy hits the Superkick and leaves.
  • Spear through the table that was set-up about a week ago and Roman Reigns pins Jey Uso at 52:09 (from th estart of Jey’s entrance).

Winner AND STILL Undisputed WWE Universal Champion: Roman Reigns (pinfall, spear through the table)

AT The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

“At” might surprise you, but this was WAY too slow. Bell-to-bell it was roughly 40 minutes, and that was about 10 minutes too long. But the story is worth it in the end.

WWE SummerSlam 2023

Total Matches: 8

  • ABOVE the Line of DeMarco-cation – 4 matches (3 WAY ABOVE)
  • AT the Line of DeMarco-cation – 3 matches
  • BELOW the Line of DeMarco-cation – 1 match

One “bad” match and seven “good ones, four of those I’d call “great.” Three of the great ones I labeled as “WAY ABOVE” the line, which easily makes up for one match that was lacking. Hell, when even the Battle Royal is good, you know you watched a damn good show.

Overall Rating for WWE SummerSlam 2023: 9/10

King’s WrestleMania Rewind: Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka from WrestleMania 34

Chris king is back with one of the most underrated matches in WrestleMania history–Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka!



WWE WrestleMania 34 Charlotte Flair Asuka

Chris king is back with one of the most underrated matches in WrestleMania history–Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka!

We look back at Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka at WWE WrestleMania 34. ‘The Empress of Tomorrow’ put her unprecedented and historic undefeated streak of 914 days on the line against ‘The Queen’s’ SmackDown Women’s Championship.

For years, this was considered a dream match while Asuka dominated the roster in NXT, while Flair won numerous championships on the main roster on both Raw and SmackDown. The Empress made her long-awaited debut on the September 11th episode of Raw and began to tear through the competition.

Asuka outlasted all twenty-nine other women in the historic first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match to challenge for the title of her choosing. At Fastlane, she made her choice.

The WWE Universe was so excited for this match myself included. Both superstars delivered a fantastic performance on the Grandest Stage of Them All executing counter after counter. Asuka showed off some nasty-looking kicks to her opponent, and Flair hit a thunderous Spanish Fly off the top rope. Flair was seconds away from defeat at the hands of The Empress but she locked in Figure Eight and Asuka was forced to tap out.

I can’t even begin to explain how shocked I was at this outcome, as nearly everyone expected The Empress to continue her undefeated streak and walk away with the women’s title. This controversial decision was the downfall of Asuka’s momentum. She would ultimately win the SmackDown Women’s Championship at the 2018 TLC pay-per-view in the triple-threat ladder match.

Fast forward to this year when Asuka has recently returned with her Japanese-inspired persona Kana. Kana is dangerous and ruthless and is heading into a championship with Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 39. The Empress has regained all her momentum and is highly favored to walk away with the Raw Women’s Championship. Let’s hope that Asuka and Belair can tear the house down and deliver an A+ grade match both women are fully capable of.
