With This Ring #8: Women’s Wrestling

In this edition of WIth This Ring, Cindy and Ryan look at 6 women’s matches.  They briefly talk about the history of women wrestling in the WWE, going from Moolah to Wendi Richter and the Spider Lady screwjob. Then breeze through the Alundra Blayze and Attitude Era runs with the title before getting down to the actual matches. The couple talk about the Trish Stratus/Lita rivalry and how these matches are viewed nowadays. Also, talk Armed and Famous and Trish’s turn on the show. The duo take a brief detour to a Wet n’ Wild match between Torrie Wilson and Candice Michelle featuring water balloons and squirt guns! Then it’s down to NXT to see how the Women’s Revolution in WWE started. They talk about the Charlotte/Sasha Banks/Bayley/Becky Lynch Fatal 4-Way from Takeover, Bayley/Sasha from Brooklyn and Asuka/Nikki Cross in a Last Women’s Standing match. For a more recent bout, they check out Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks from Hell in a Cell and discuss if the WWE dropped the ball with Sasha Banks and Asuka. Also, is Becky Lynch as big a star as a woman can become?  Sit back and pay respects to the innovator of the Women’s Revolution, Stephanie McMahon and enjoy the show!
