We’ve been itching to talk about it for a month, and are glad that now that it has been broadcast, there is nothing to stop us now. Paige is the first NXT Women’s Champion, spotlighting her as the top woman in WWE’s developmental division right now. It is the shining moment in the 20-year old’s 6-year career – the last 18 months of which has been spent in Florida in Florida Championship Wrestling and later NXT. It was also a testament to WWE’s faith in the Briton that she defeated two established WWE Divas en route to the final of the tournament, defeating Tamina Snuka and former Divas Champion Alicia Fox to make it to the decider against Emma.
In what was the opening contest of last Wednesday’s broadcast, Paige and Emma put together what has to be the best women’s match that WWE has presented in the last year at least. With big moves peppering the proceedings, a decisive finish via the Paige Turner and the endorsement of fellow Divas and WWE COO Triple H made it all feel like a really big moment – as it should have been.
WWE.com spoke to the new titleholder after the match, and asked her how she felt about her victory:
To be the first NXT Women’s Champion is such an honor. It’s so overwhelming that it hasn’t fully sunk in yet. Emma gave me a heck of a match and I have so much respect for her. We made history. I still can’t believe I can say that I’ve made history in WWE. I cried and cried when I won it and the support from everyone has been crazy. I’m getting goose bumps and teary-eyed just talking about it.
Delving a little deeper, the interview also enquired about her first tryout for WWE, and how it didn’t go according to plan, because she wasn’t being herself:
My first tryout was in November 2010 when WWE was in England. I had a match against another girl who was trying out. I was so nervous! I tried dressing the way I thought a Diva would dress, by wearing a lot of color, spray tanned, etc. I wasn’t me. After the tryout, we stayed for the show, which was an amazing experience in itself. After the show, I was brought into the office and they said to me, “We like you, but you need more of what they have. Please don’t give up, come along to the next tryout in April.”
I was thankful for the chance, but I was heartbroken. I tried being what they are and that didn’t work out for me. So I went home sad but more determined. April 2011 came around and I had another tryout. This time, I was the only girl there in a ring full of guys and my brother who had a tryout, too. I felt like it went well, but at the same time I didn’t go there as a Diva, I went there as myself with piercings, black hair, black clothes and pale [skin]. I wanted to be able to prove that I didn’t need what the other girls had; I could be myself. After the match, the scout came in and said that two others and I would be offered contracts.
We talked about it at the time, but it must be a big thing for a 19 year old woman who has lived with her parents for her whole life to go off by herself to a new country, set herself up in her own home, manage her own money and get used to a completely different way to life to also keep her head in the game, work hard and apply herself, taking in all the advice and suggestions from trainers, while also possibly making mistakes, learning from them and impressing along the way.
However, she is not the only one who is impressing. Fellow finalist Emma has gone from an accomplished performer as Tenille Tayla in places like SHIMMER and Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling to adding a fun character in the easily distracted bubble-lover with a terrible – yet highly entertaining and increasingly mimicked – dance. Incidentally, the bubbles for her entrance is brilliant.
Similar to Emma’s story in that she was a great performer who was missing an easily identifiable gimmick, Bayley is now the adorable, youthful robot-lover who is also a talented grappler. Summer Rae is the closest thing to Maryse that WWE has had in a while – a great character who is highly arrogant and has a massive superiority complex. Her wrestling may not be up there with Paige and Emma, but her drawing power lies in her persona, and it’s all there. Sasha Banks is coming along, Charlotte has her father Ric Flair’s connections and seems to have the basics down, and there are others like recent signee Rebecca Knox who has massive promise.
Having said all that, one of the main reasons why NXT’s women’s division is doing so well is because of a face which we don’t get to see – though is probably the most important of them all.
As much as what happened on Wednesday’s NXT broadcast was the shining moment for Paige, the bigger winner is arguably Sara Del Rey, who started with WWE last September as a trainer for the women. While some lamented the removal of what many believe is the best wrestler is the world today from the independent scene, the transition seems to have been a successful one for the 32-year old.
There have been a number of calls for Del Rey to get some ring and TV time in WWE, though it appears that she is happy with her legacy, if her tweets last week are anything to go by. She took advantage of the Follow Friday gimmick by posting the handles of all of her female students in NXT, as if she is the matriarch of the division. Rather than being the star herself, she is handing it over the fourteen women who she referred to last week as “my girls”.
Good on you, Sara. You’re doing a great job and many people are benefiting from your knowledge, experience and tutelage. We’re looking forward to seeing the skills of the newer names grow.
PWWA returns this Saturday with Champions United, headlined by a titanic main event match which has been close to a year in the making.
When Madison Eagles’ injury to her knee put her on the shelf for an undetermined period of time, she kept the PWWA Championship – though a tournament was set up to determine an Interim Champion while a question mark hung over the titleholder’s head. As it turns out, the winner of the whole shebang was New Zealand’s Evie, who beat Megan-Kate in May, Kellie Skater in June and Jessie McKay in August to claim the title. The new Interim Champion held onto the belt in October after going to a 30-minute time limit draw in an incredibly hard-hitting war with Skater, and retained the title in a 3-way earlier this month, defeating Skater and McKay.
The kick-happy Kiwi has also expanded her list of promotions which she has worked for by also working for both SHIMMER and SHINE, taking on the likes of Kimber Lee, Mia Yim and Mercedes Martinez in singles action. The Evie who won the title last August is not the same Evie as we see now – she’s more accomplished, more experienced and more confident.
That spells trouble for Eagles, who has been forced to give her opponent time to become a more dangerous opponent and close the gap in the eyes of the fans as to who the favourite will be in this contest. Yes, Eagles made her triumphant return to wrestling earlier this year, was arguably the best wrestler at the last SHIMMER tapings and as well as not missing a beat, as has also evolved her character. Turning heel at the June PWA show to align herself with Mick Moretti means that there will be less of a split crowd – though the turn has also facilitated Eagles to potentially make history in her home promotion.
Firstly, by winning this Saturday’s match, Eagles can unify the titles and become the Undisputed PWWA Champion. However at the end of this month, Madison gets a shot at Robbie Eagles’ PWA Heavyweight Championship. She could book-end the month with title wins and roll into September as a double champion.
It’s that Heavyweight Title match that throws a spanner in the works as it pertains to my prediction of who will win. Normally, I would say it makes most sense of Evie to win, claim the biggest scalp of her career so far and solidify her status as the promotion’s champion. Under normal circumstances I would say that Eagles winning would derail Evie’s momentum, make her appear to be a paper champion who was only keeping it warm until mother hen returned to the roost. The problem is that an Eagles loss doesn’t exactly set her up in good stead for the crack at the men’s top title a few weeks later. I appreciate that as a heel, she can say she was cheated, robbed or conned out of unifying the titles, but her momentum would take a real knock with the possible claim that if she can’t beat the top woman in the promotion, how could she ever imagine being a proper threat to the top man? Sexist? Maybe a little – but the question would remain.
If I were forced to pick a winner, I’d squirm, scratch my chin and say ‘erm’ a lot, but I still think Evie will emerge as the winner. I reckon that August 3 will be a defining moment in her career, and I have no doubt that it will be a brilliant match.
As for the rest of the card… we have no idea. This is literally a one-match show when it comes to the promotion, and the lack of match announcements hasn’t been ideal for a website such as this which would be keen to get hyped and excited for the event. A number of new faces will attend including Michelle K Hasluck, Olivia Shaw, Siren Monroe and Demi Bennett, but we have no clue what they will be doing.
While we’re on the subject of PWWA, I can’t help but feel disappointed that last year’s Interim Title tournament and October card have not been released yet. We understand that there are circumstances for that, and they should emerge in time – but considering both were well received, we are eager to see them.
Elsewhere on the site, we have had a couple of videos: the first is a Retro featuring Stephanie McMahon v Vince McMahon in an entertaining I Quit Match, while we’ve also had a match between Angelina Love and La Rosa Negra from earlier this summer.

The best of the rest
Bull Nakano has been added to the WWE Alumni roster… Despite rumours put out there by the Sun UK newspaper, WWE has gone public in saying that it is not in negotiations with Stacy Keibler… PWInsider reports that D-Generation X may be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame next year, and the company has been in talks with Chyna about it… Natalya & Aksana have moved on from Japan to Australia as part of WWE’s tour… Maria Kanellis alleges that the Bella Twins also managed to block two other women from getting hired in the same way that she claims they put the kibosh on her return. Kanellis does not name who the two women are. She also tweeted that she would be watching Total Divas because “I love watching women beg for a ring”… No real talk about Total Divas here because I haven’t seen it – but Stew has, and he talks about it here. As for ratings, it drew around 1.3 million viewers, which is more than Impact Wrestling on most weeks, but is less than half the numbers of its lead-in show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians – however it did better on USA, where it drew 1.5 million in its post-Raw screening. Maria Kanellis did a running torpedoing of the Bellas as it aired on E!… Kaitlyn defeated AJ Lee in a non-title match on Raw last night. Meanwhile, the Bellas were referring to Natalya as an “ugly duckling” on the show. Another Diva storyline where someone’s looks are picked on? I thought we had moved on from this petty stuff, but coupled with the mocking of Kaitlyn that AJ has done in the past month and this, I guess we’re not… A poll asking which former Diva fans would like to see return was won by Maxine in a landslide, receiving 68% of the 282,000+ votes cast. She beat out the likes of Trish Stratus, Beth Phoenix, Kelly Kelly & Stacy Keibler. The 27-year old quit last year when WWE axed the format of NXT which was running and moved it all to Florida, saying she wasn’t progressing in the company, and hasn’t wrestled since. Considering how strong NXT’s women’s division is at the moment, I think she may have been hasty in walking away.
Mickie James retained the Knockouts Title by beating Gail Kim on last week’s Impact Wrestling. It was a heel v heel affair which saw both sides trying to cheat as much as possible. In the end, it was Kim arguing with ref ODB which led to James rolling up Gail. Again, Kim is arguing with a ref like she did with Taryn Terrell… Taeler Hendrix talked to the Greg DeMarco Show about her final appearance on TNA, which was a loss to Mickie James on Impact on June 6. She alleges that someone running the show said she needed to cut weight, explaining: ‘Don’t tell me on my birthday that I’m “heavy” to be on TV… I’m a size 3, that’s not fat at all!… I’m a role model for young girls, there’s nothing plastic about me…’ She also discussed her Gut Check last year, saying ‘I was too skinny!… I got really skinny just to get on television… Someone said I looked like a skeleton, and then I started looking at my pictures and I was like “Oh my God, I really do!”… I’m taller than [most female wrestlers] but I’m not bigger than them’.
As well as customs and Women Superstars Uncensored, Shanna has been booked for Dynasty Pro Wrestling in Richmondville, NY on August 24. Veda Scott and Kasey Ray are also booked on the show… Shanna has also been announced for the SHINE 12 roster. The show’s on August 23… Talking of WSU, Combat Zone Wrestling trainee Samantha St Paul will make her debut in the Uncensored Rumble… North Carolina promotion Premier Wrestling Xperience, which regularly books women’s matches featuring the likes of Amber O’Neal, has secured a TV deal on WCCB in Charlotte from September… All the women on Ohio Valley Wrestling’s roster had a big brawl in the ring over who should be the top contender to Trina Thompson’s Women’s Championship. Lei’D Tapa made the big statement by laying out the titleholder. Incidentally, the new team of Taeler Hendrix and Envy are referring to themselves as the A-List. Poor Nikki St John’s been left out in the cold, hasn’t she?… Lisa Marie Varon (Tara) showed up at AAW’s show at the weekend. It was her first wrestling appearance since her TNA release… D’Arcy Dixon retained the RESISTANCE Pro Women’s Championship on Friday night by beating Mickie Knuckles with a top rope powerbomb. Also on the card, Nikki St John and Camron Star beat Thunderkitty and Lucy Mendez. There were also mentions of a Women’s Tag Team Championship in the future… La Rosa Negra retained her title twice on Bombshell Ladies Of Wrestling’s iPPV on Friday. Also on the card, Jessie Kaye, Amber Rodriguez & Alexxis Nevaeh formed a unit called Strength In Numbers (SIN).
A tournament to decide new REINA Tag Team Champions will take place on August 24. The teams competing will be Zeuxis & Vaquerita, Kasey Owens & Risa Sera, Rabbit Miu & Mori, Syuri & Ariya, Leon & Ray and Miyako Matsumoto & Makoto… Arisa Nakajima added the CMLL-REINA International Championship to her JWP Openweight Title by beating Command Bolshoi on Sunday in a match where both belts were on the line. Bolshoi was a transitional champion, holding the belt for a mere eight days… Lin Byron successfully defended the Wrestling New Classic Women’s Championship against Serena Deeb on Thursday. It was the first time any woman had retained the Women’s Championship or the SMASH Divas Title which preceded it. However, it was to be Byron’s final day as champion, as she has had to vacate the title due to a fractured foot. She will be out for a month. A round robin tournament between Syuri, Serena Deeb & Makoto has been declared to crown a new champion… Yoshiko was part of a competition at Dramatic Dream Team’s Beer Garden Fight show in Tokyo yesterday. The winner would be the person who could make the surly Joshi laugh. Dramatic DDT reports that the victor turned out to be Antonio Honda dressed as Hulk Hogan – he hulked up, drew a chicken on his belly and stripped to fishnets to no avail, but then took off his bandana revealing a headband which had “hippie” written on it, and that did the job.
Katey Harvey will wrestle Kazza G in a Hairspray on a Pole Match for Celtic Championship Wrestling in Waterford, Ireland on August 10. It came about after Kazza pinned Harvey after spraying her in the face with hairspray… Alpha Female’s final match in Europe before she relocates to Japan for a year will be a triple threat match. She faces Carmel Jacob and Kay Lee Ray at Pro Evolution Wrestling on August 3 in Gloucester, England… Portia Perez will be in Scotland in September. She’ll wrestle two dates for Premier British Wrestling on the 20th and 21st. Just as a side note, ICW: Fierce Females’ next show is on the 22nd… Bete Noire will make her European debut in November when she travels to France. No word on which promotion or who her opponent will be… Addy Starr is already securing bookings for when she moves over to the UK. She’ll face Miss Mina on DOA Wrestling’s show on October 5… HXC Wrestling announced earlier that Crazy Mary Dobson will be on its show in Manchester on October 5. Soon afterwards, Fierce Females revealed she would also be on their show on September 22. She made a big splash in May, defeating Bete Noire in a hardcore battle.
Taya Valkyrie will challenge Faby Apache for the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship on Friday in Mexico City.
