We’ve made it through one of the last times that significant wrestling events will happen in this decade!
After a hard-fought main-event contest against Shayna Baszler, Rhea Ripley is now the first new NXT women’s champion in almost a year and a half. We’ll geek out about her major accomplishment in a somewhat inappropriate way.
While that was the biggest event on Wednesday, there were tons of things worth tuning in for across both AEW and NXT. Jericho had an entertaining match with Jungle Boy; Adam Cole retained his NXT title over Finn Balor with some help from a returning Johnny Gargano; and Kris Statlander is now the number one contender for Riho’s Women’s World Championship.
We’ll talk about all of that and look at WWE’s TLC show to heap more praise… and just a little bit of criticism.
