Jungle Grrrl now arrives and says Tessa is cute thinking she deserves to be champion. Tessa says she already took care of her, and bails. Havok now arrives and Tessa suggests that she will defend her tile next week, so McLane books a triple threat main event.

Fire then cradles her for 2. Jones locks on the arm bar and Fire taps. Jessie Jones defeated Fire @ 4:50 via submission [**½] This was a solid opener, Jones is a fine heel while Fire came off as the better wrestler.

– We get a profile video package for Azteca (Karissa Rivera). She came here as a masked performer against her parent’s wishes, but is now unmasked as Reyna Reyes, embracing her Philippine heritage.

The Disciplinarian w/Samantha Smart vs. Sassy Massy: Sassy Massy is Alisha Edwards. Thy lock up and the Disciplinarian shoves Massy down.

Sassy Massy defeated The Disciplinarian @ 4:35 via pin [**½] This was another solid match, with a clear heel vs. face dynamic and clean work.

Tag Team Tournament Match: The Psycho Sisters (Razor & Fury) w/Mezmeriah vs. Princess Aussie & Reyna Reyes: Aussie and Razor begin, they lock up and Aussie works the arm until Razor fires back.

Aussie takes her out and Fury follows with a German. Reyes then hits a complete shot for 2. Reyes accidentally superkicks Aussie and Fury picks up the win with the cradle and holding the tights. The Psycho Sisters defeated Princess Aussie & Reyna Reyes @ 6:30 via pin [**] This was ok, a bit slow at times and there were a few instances of standing around and looking lost by Razor in particular.

– The heels celebrate post match and claim that no one can stop them.

– We get a video package, hyping tonight’s main event.

– Tessa arrives to do commentary for the main event.

Jungle Grrrl vs. Jessicka Havok vs. The Beast went to a no contest @ 4:12 [**] This was ok while it lasted, but the booking sends a bad message here in episode one of the season.

– Post match, Grrrl gets a chair and runs off Havok & Hazard. Tessa says she will pick her own opponent for next week.

The final score: review Not So Good
The 411
WOW - Women Of Wrestling was far from a horrible show. The production is very good and clean, and the show is shot well. the wrestling was ok to solid, and has some potential based on some of the roster we saw, but I do worry about the booking going forward following that main event. It wasn’t horrible, but also wasn’t very good but has some potential.
