The gauntlet match on Monday, the MITB ladder match on Tuesday, and Last Woman Standing tonight on NXT. They really are committed to pushing the women.
Question: When was the last time women main-evented nearly every show in WWE in a single week?
Answer: Never. It’s never been done … until this week. Excluding 205 Live, which features no female competitors as of yet, every major WWE show is main-evented by its Women’s division. Monday’s Raw ended with Sasha Banks’ victory in a historic Women’s Gauntlet Match to determine Alexa Bliss’ challenger for the Raw Women’s Title at the WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view, while last night’s SmackDown LIVE was capped off with a rematch of the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, which was won by Carmella.
Finally, WWE.com can confirm that the main event of tonight’s NXT, streaming at 8/7 C on WWE Network, will feature Asuka defending her NXT Women’s Championship against Nikki Cross in a no-holds-barred Last Woman Standing Match, completing the trifecta.
Congratulations, ladies. Here’s to many more weeks like this one.
