Nylons and Midriffs: Consequences (November 18, 2020)

I’m laying all the cards on the table early this week. We have some major news to discuss in our Thorny section, ranging from very problematic to downright insidious. The lack of care for AEW’s women’s division is getting more attention recently with the pathetic build to Hikaru Shida vs. Nyla Rose at Full Gear. … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Consequences (November 18, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Poetry in Motion (October 28, 2020)

We are on the road to WWE’s Survivor Series and AEW’s Full Gear, which means that 2020 is nearly drawing to a close. With Hell in a Cell now in the rearview, I’ll be taking a look at the epic meeting between forever rivals Bayley and Sasha Banks, as well as where the rest of … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Poetry in Motion (October 28, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Wicked Ways (October 14, 2020)

We’re in the heart of spooky season pals, and there are some very scary things happening in the WWE world right now. We’ll talk about them at the end of this entry, but before that we’ll keep our discussion centered on in-ring action. I apologize in advance that this week’s Nylons will once again tilt … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Wicked Ways (October 14, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Wild Women (September 30, 2020)

Fall is finally here, friends! And with the withering of the leaves outside also comes the winding down of the wrestling calendar year of 2020. I can’t believe we’re entering the final quarter of this black hole of a year. Are we heading toward going out with a bang, or a quiet sizzle for the … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Wild Women (September 30, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Discombobulated (September 16, 2020)

The summer is drawing to a close in this marathon of a year. And as far as wrestling is concerned, there’s been plenty of heat in and out of the ring in both WWE and AEW. For the women, there have been some definite highs, but mentally I’m drawn more to the bad stuff, unfortunately. … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Discombobulated (September 16, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Some Explaining to Do (September 2, 2020)

I come to Nylons this week very confused. I have so many questions instead of answers from both promotions about, more or less, what on Earth they’re doing with their women. No big deal, I just want to know what the heck is going on. (Sarcasm intended.) From unconvincing finishes to tangled webs of storylines … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Some Explaining to Do (September 2, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Build It Up, Shut It Down (August 19, 2020)

WWE and AEW are gearing up or their summer-end pay-per-views: SummerSlam and All Out, respectively. And the women’s divisions of both promotions are busy to say the least. In the span of two weeks, countless feuds were continued and begun – some poetically, others haphazardly. But, minus a few blemishes, I felt very invested in … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Build It Up, Shut It Down (August 19, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Clownery (August 5, 2020)

We have so much foolishness to go over this week, pals… That’s okay; not every week can be a banger. There are some weeks that serve as buffer, and with wrestling not having an off-season, there are bound to be lulls every few months or so. Let’s start with a review of the matches and … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Clownery (August 5, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Ring the Freakin’ Bell! (July 22, 2020)

Oh don’t worry, we’ll get to that finish from Extreme Rules in due time… Returning for another edition of Nylons, we have some good and horrific things to talk about in the wake of The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. But, we also have a few topics to visit outside of that show, and also … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Ring the Freakin’ Bell! (July 22, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: In Sasha We Trust (July 8, 2020)

Wow wow wow. The past two weeks have produced some of the best women’s wrestling I can remember seeing in the last 12 months. For both WWE and AEW, my critiques are mostly nitpicky details from a critic invested in keeping this momentum going. It can’t be denied that the women have been an integral … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: In Sasha We Trust (July 8, 2020)
