The weather may be chilly, but women’s wrestling is only heating up: WWE reveals two women’s Survivor Series matchups, Mickie James defends the Knockouts Championship, Alex Windsor captures Rev Pro gold, and much more! Let’s break it down in this week’s edition of Women’s Wrestling Wrap-Up!

WWE Survivor Series Matches Set

WWE’s annual Survivor Series pay-per-view is set to culminate on November 21st in Brooklyn, New York. Last week, WWE announced the return of the traditional 5 vs 5 elimination matchups, via Twitter.

As later detailed on WWE.com, five of Raw and Smackdown’s best female Superstars will collide in a battle for brand supremacy at Survivor Series in a traditional elimination match.

The full statement issued by WWE reads:

The battle for brand supremacy at Survivor Series will feature another blockbuster Women’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match as Raw and SmackDown’s best female Superstars set out on a collision course.

Monday Night Raw’s squad will consist of Bianca Belair, WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan, Carmella and Queen Zelina, while Friday Night SmackDown will be represented by Sasha Banks, Shotzi, Shayna Baszler, Natalya and newcomer Aliyah.

Both teams have their fair share of animosity to overcome, as Morgan has had her tribulations with Carmella and Queen Zelina as of late, while SmackDown’s team could see a fair amount of dissension form between Shotzi and The Boss.

Who will be able to outlast the competition and survive to give her brand the edge?

Don’t miss this showdown at Survivor Series on Sunday, Nov. 21, streaming live at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT exclusively on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network everywhere else.

Each team has its own share of brewing tension that might come into play, as WWE alluded to in their statement above.

Liv Morgan has gotten into the crosshairs of Carmella and Zelina Vega during their tenure on Smackdown before the draft. Morgan distracted Carmella during her semi-finals matchup of the Queen Of The Ring tournament and ultimately cost her the victory. These two also squared off in an intense bout on the pre-show of Extreme Rules in September, before following paths to Monday Night Raw after the WWE Draft.

WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion, Rhea Ripley enters the RAW Women’s Survivor Series team without her partner, Nikki A.S.H. without any explanation as to why she wasn’t selected. Perhaps A.S.H. will still attend the match at ringside? Nevertheless, Ripley and A.S.H. suffered a recent loss to Carmella and Queen Zelina on RAW, further fueling the animosity within the RAW women’s team. On the Smackdown side of this matchup, Shotzi Blackheart recently unleashed a new aggression onto a fellow teammate, Sasha Banks, on Smackdown after her loss to Smackdown Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair.

Sasha Banks also has the potential to continue her storied rivalry with Bianca Belair, should these two competitors cross paths in this matchup. Shayna Baszler and Rhea Ripley also have the potential to rekindle their dramatic feud from their NXT days, again, should they cross paths in the match.

Smackdown brings forth a combination of WWE veterans like Natalya and Sasha Banks, and newer names, like Shotzi and newly called up, Aliyah. RAW brings forth a certain affinity for gold, with WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion, Rhea Ripley and the winner of the Queen’s Crown Tournament, Zelina Vega.

Additionally, Liv Morgan earned herself a future RAW Women’s Championship opportunity after winning a fatal-five- way number one contender’s match last night. She looks to continue her momentum going forward into this matchup.

Ironically, four of the five members of Team RAW were previously on Smackdown prior to the WWE Draft, whereas only Smackdown’s Shayna Baszler swapped over from RAW and Aliyah received a call-up from NXT.

“The Boss” Sasha Banks will lead the charge for Smackdown, while “The EST of WWE” Bianca Belair will captain the RAW team.

The #SurvivorSeries field is set.

That isn’t the only women’s match featured on Survivor Series, though, as Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair will also clash in the battle for brand supremacy.

RAW Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch is slated to square off with Charlotte Flair, the SmackDown Women’s Champion. These two women have a plethora of history, from their bouts in NXT to their outstanding match at Evolution, to the main event of WrestleMania 35 alongside Ronda Rousey.

Flair and Lynch previously swapped brands in the WWE Draft, and consequently swapped their championships in a heated exchange on Smackdown a few weeks ago. Nonetheless, the two decorated women’s champions will again face off on November 21st, in a match highly anticipated by many.

Mickie James Defends Knockouts Championship, Next Challenger Announced

Last week on IMPACT, the Knockouts Championship was on the line, as Mickie James sought to fend off a familiar foe, Madison Rayne.

James previously captured the Knockouts Championship at Bound For Glory on October 23rd by defeating “The Virtuosa”, Deonna Purrazzo in an epic bout. This marked the beginning of the fourth title reign from James in IMPACT. Before a traditional rematch was ever issued between Purrazzo and James, a new challenger stepped up to the new champion: former five-time Knockouts Champion, Madison Rayne.

James previously defeated Rayne to win her first Knockouts Championship back in April of 2011, and now looked to rekindle this rivalry a decade later. Rayne initially retired from professional wrestling earlier this year, but returned to the IMPACT Zone a couple of months ago to form an alliance with Tenille Dashwood and Kaleb with a K, collectively known as The Infleunce. Dashwood and Rayne recently competed at Knockouts Knockdown in pursuit of Knockouts Tag Team Championship but fell short to Decay (Havok and Rosemary). Now, in Tenille Dashwood’s recent absence, Madison Rayne shifted her focus to singles gold.

Rayne’s pursuit for singles officially went underway last week on IMPACT Wrestling, as Mickie James put her Knockouts Championship on the line. The two decorated competitors battled back and forth before the action spilled to the outside when Rayne drop kicked James to the ringside floor. Kaleb with a K taunted James with his hands but James thwarted his attempt by whipping him into a pair of steel stairs. Mickie regained her footing to then climb to the top rope and land a jumping senton onto Rayne in the center of the ring. This move secured the pin and victory for James, as she officially retained the Knockouts Championship.

But the post-match celebration didn’t last too long.

Mickie was then introduced to another challenger, Mercedes Martinez. The crowd roared with a loud pop for the fellow veteran, as Martinez then thanked them. James and Martinez shared a moment of mutual respect with a handshake. However, Martinez reminded the Knockouts Champion that while she’s looking for who’s next in line for challengers, James’ next challenger was right in front of her. Mercedes retorts that she won the Knockouts Knockdown tournament, which guaranteed her a future championship opportunity. The future is now though, as Martinez revealed that she will meet Mickie James in the ring at IMPACT Turning Point on November 20th.

Officially, Mickie James is now slated to defend her Knockouts Championship against the “Latina Sensation” Mercedes Martinez in 11 days at Turning Point on November 20th from Las Vegas. In a dream match considered by many, this match will be sure to deliver some spectacular action.

New Rev Pro Undisputed British Champion Crowned

Gisele Shaw has highly dominated the United Kingdom scene over the last year, as proof in her #19 ranking on this year PWI Women’s 150 List. Simultaneously holding the PROGRESS Women’s Championship and Rev Pro’s Undisputed British Women’s Championship, Shaw undoubtedly helped shape the new era of the European wrestling scene.

Over the weekend, Shaw’s Undisputed British Women’s Championship was on the line against Alex Windsor at Live at the NOTpit 55 in London.

Windsor returned to professional wrestling over the summer at EVE’s Wrestle Queendom 4 for the first time in four years. Since then, she’s gained a string of victories over the likes of Zoe Lucas, Jordynne Grace, and a time-limit draw against Emerysn Jayne. In perhaps her biggest match since returning, Windsor earned a championship match against Shaw after defeating her in non-title match last month.

The two fierce competitors collided again on November 7th, with the Rev Pro Undisputed British Women’s Championship on the line. In the end, Shaw’s 126-day reign came to an end, as Windsor stood victorious with her first taste of singles gold since 2017.

Appropriately, all hail the NEW Undisputed British Women’s Champion, Alex Windsor.
