Having trouble keeping up with all of the mainstream women’s wrestling that takes place off TV? Well fear no more! Diva Dirt has got your back with the House Show Roundown! Without any further ado, let’s kick things off!
This weekend, Raw, SmackDown, and Impact Wrestling were all working the live event scene. Over on Raw, we had a mix of matches involving some form of Divas Champion, Kelly Kelly, Eve, and Beth Phoenix against Maryse, Brie, and Nikki Bella.
This past weekend’s house show results below:

Thoughts: Some interesting things going on. The handicap match interests me because Kelly Kelly later made an appearance at the show with Dusty Rhodes, so it’s not as if she wasn’t there. I’m glad to see a lot of the matches are getting solid reviews from fans in attendance, and specifically happy myself to see everyone’s favorite freakin’ Costa Rican, Rosa Mendes, getting a strong reception.
