Over in AEW, there wasn’t as much women’s action on Dynamite. The only women’s match on this week’s show was a squash match between Thunder Rosa and Jazmin Allure.
Over on IMPACT, they determined their number one contender for the Knockouts Championship. After a vicious bout against Rosemary, Havok punched her ticket to this weekends Under Seige pay-per-view.
Back to WWE, and fans saw another number one contender crowned and this time in NXT UK. After an intense gauntlet match in wrestling legend, Meiko Satomura overcame Isla Dawn, Dani Luna, Emilia McKenzie, and Jinny to become the next challenger to Kay Lee Ray‘s NXT UK Championship.
On SmackDown, Bayley and Bianca Belair engaged in a war of words ahead of their title clash at WrestleMania BackLash. We also saw a title change hands, with Natalya and Tamina finally dethroned Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax.
In the rumors department, it was reported by Fightful Select and confirmed by some other sources that Thea Trinidad (Zelina Vega) was seen filming content as the WWE Performance Center with Simone Johnson. This appears to be a part of a potential return for the superstar.
