Photoshoot Flashback – Moulin Knockouts
Published by: |   (0) Comments      Read MORE      Filed Under: Photoshoot Flashback

Welcome to the first edition of Photoshoot Flashback. This is a series of where we will look back in time for photoshoots that happened in the past. As suggested by Dave, I will be looking back at photoshoots that happened back years ago and see how much my opinion from then to now has changed on it and what could’ve happened. Since today is Valentine’s Day, I thought this would be a better way to kick off the first edition by taking look back at the Impact Wrestling Knockouts Photoshoot done in 2013 called “Moulin Knockouts”.


Prior towards Valentine’s Day, a video came out of a photoshoot that was put together by Christy Hemme, who has been phenomenal to all of us at WOW Candy Visuals for many years. The shoot looked very promising and exciting. I’ll admit, I wasn’t too big on the past Valentine’s Day photoshoots that impact did, but this was something I was waiting for. While the video turned out to be amazing, I was sort of disappointed with the photos.


OK, I’m not going to lie here, all the girls looked amazing. The best of the shoot was Gail Kim, Velvet Sky, Mickie James and Taryn Terrell, but the problem I had with this shoot and Dave can vouch for me when I say this. I personally felt that the shoot was too group shot heavy over solo shots. While looking at this shoot and critiquing them for WOW at the time, it was hard to find out who popped out the most. One girl could be working the shot over the other and we needed to see more, which was also a problem.


I’m not the type of person to put the blame on anyone because to me, I felt all the staff members tried our best to work with little. When the photoshoot came out in February of that year, only little pics came out. We needed to see more and more solos. Not having that much solos also didn’t help us because we wanted to see how much more there was. Also, we were very disappointed in the lack of Madison Rayne solo shots because to be honest, she did look best. (It was understandable what was going on)


When it was all set and done, our critique was up, and we did the best we can. Christy did well her first round of these photoshoots as they got better along the way. Judging back to my opinion then, I was ready to see the full shoots, but looking back to my opinion now, I felt it was a little bit of a disappointment photo amount wise.


Thanks for Reading my first edition!

It seems to me that WOWOpinion has become the stepchild to WOW Candy Visuals. First, I want to thank everyone that’s been visiting and showing your support to the women’s gallery we started back in 2011. We are growing and growing each day and showing support for the ladies that are paving a way for the next generation to come. However, it seems like we need to use our voice and discuss a lot of things that are happen in the world of Women’s Wresting.


This leads to where in the tune of “In the Navy” by the Village People, “We Want You”.


Since Dave and I are planning to relaunch WOWOpinion, we are asking YOU guys to write what is ever one your mind about Women’s Wrestling or anything you feel like when it comes to wrestling. You can discuss what wrestler you’ve been enjoying, what you think of the current state of the women’s division for Impact Wrestling, WWE, NXT and so forth. Hell, you can write your dissatisfaction with wrestlers you don’t even like.


There’s not really anything to qualify for. If you love to write and like women’s wrestling, this is for you. However, we ask NOT to write anything sexist, xenophobic, racist or misogynist. Anything that is submitted to us will be reviewed and if we see that, we will NOT post it.


To submit your article, please email us at and if you feel like, please put your twitter handle down so we can tweet you when its up!


Thank You guys and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

Meagan’s Corner #11: The Wrong Name For A Women’s Battle Roy...
Published by: |   (0) Comments      Read MORE      Filed Under: Meagan's Corner

“The thunder rolls
And the lightning strikes” – Garth Brooks/All that Remains


I know I opened up with a song lyrics to my blog, but these past forty-eight hours, I feel like thunder’s was rolling and bringing the lighting as well on Twitter. Now, I’m just going to give a little bit of a heads up here regarding my blog. This is just my opinion on this whole entire thing I felt like talking about. Hell, I need to talk about it. Here we go and I’m going to bite the bullet talking about this.

For the first time EVER in WWE history, we are about to have five Women’s matches in Wrestlemania history. Yes, that makes me happy and as a women’s wrestling fan, it makes me thrilled. A couple of years ago, we were very lucky to even get two women’s matches let alone five. We are making progress in the Women’s Evolution, right?

Or as we think we are.

Last night on WWE Raw, it was announced that for the first time for Wrestlemania, we are going to have a battle royal named after someone. It was rumored for a long time and personally, after the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble, I was excited. If the men can have an Andre the Giant Battle Royal and a Royal Rumble in the same year, the women can have one as well. While watching RAW, they honored the Fabulous Moolah with a video package, I thought this was just for Women’s History month, but prior towards this, they already did honor someone for the month. I was listening and looking at all of the women talking about Moolah until the end of the video package where it was announced that at Wrestlemania, the women from Raw, Smackdown and NXT will be competing in the first ever…..

“Fabulous Moolah battle Royal!”

Of course, I was excited for this because everyone that’s not in a championship match, tag match or singles match are competing in it and I was excited for the Wrestlemania fashions (I mean, come on, the ring attire is the best part of Mania. WWE, you better release a photoshoot of this), but at the same time, it clicked in my head and what clicked in my head was.

“This is not going to end well with anyone considering that Moolah did some horrible stuff when she was alive”

Boy was I right about this because this caused the biggest thunderstorm out there. Twitter was on fire with this, they were angry as they have every right to be angry. I was going to say something, but I couldn’t find the proper words to say anything on this situation. I was upset about the fact that WWE is preaching moving forward with the Women’s Evolution, but they took a BIG STEP backwards with this, especially with the whole #MeToo Movement that is going on these days.


However, at the same time, I get what WWE is doing. They want to honor someone that did a lot for wrestling despite everything and she was one of them, but you could’ve had a different name to honor the women. Chyna was the first one that came to mind because she was the one that broke ground, you could’ve had Alundra Blayze’s name for the battle royal. Hell, you could’ve named it the Molly Holly Battle royal, and everything would’ve been fine. Someone said in a group I was in that Monday was a bad day for WWE in PR, but honestly, if they are going to wipe the likes of Chris Benoit out because he murdered his family and himself, they wiped Hulk Hogan out because he said the “N” word. What is so hard with looking at what Fabulous Moolah did in the past and changing the name to something everyone can agree on?

Speaking of which, there is a Petition going around to change the name to something different instead of this. I encourage people to sign it and let the WWE know. You guys did it last year when the Smackdown Women’s Championship match was on the preshow and had it moved to the main show. I would be surprised if WWE caves in for the name change on this one.


Bottom line is this. I’m mixed on this whole entire thing, but I will say this. I’m glad that each girl is going to be featured on this card and I said before when I got to the details that I’m happy that we have more than two matches on this show.


So I’m going to lead this to you guys. How do you feel on this whole entire thing? Should the name be changed or leave it the way it is? Also, a little bit of a cheap plug here, if you want to everything else that’s happened, I recommend purchasing the book Sisterhood of the Squared Circle, which is a very good read. Here’s the link:


Thanks for reading this everyone and I do hope the change happens for the sake of everyone.

Meagan’s Corner #10: Summer Rae and Emma’s Releases
Published by: |   (0) Comments      Read MORE      Filed Under: Meagan's Corner

Welcome back to another edition of Meagan’s Corner. This is episode ten and I just have to talk about what happened yesterday regarding the releases of Darren Young, Summer Rae, and Emma. Personally, I’m kind of sad and normally, I don’t get sad due to releases, but Emma and Summer’s ones just make me very upset at the fact that these girls were underutilized and the potential was there and they had to use it. Boy, do I feel like WWE messed this one up with the both of them.


Now for starters, I wasn’t a big fan of the both of them like I am with Charlotte, Finn Balor, Alexa Bliss and AJ Styles, but I did want the both of them to succeed here. Infact, Summer was one of the girls I became a fan of and admired the fact that she was a good manager to Fandango and had a lot of fun watching those two, but it was Emma that captivated me the most when she had the bubbly gimmick. I thought to myself that “Oh hey, she’s just like me and a goofball. I can dig this”. Hell, their dance off in NXT had to be the most greatest stuff there was out there and I still laugh to this day.


Wrestling wise, I only saw Summer Rae wrestle a few people such as Kaitlyn, being a part of that tag team match at Survivor Series four years ago and the following night one raw. She wasn’t the best, but boy, when she went out there, she shined because her charisma was there. Over in NXT where Emma still was, she has matches that people seem to forget and that match was Paige vs. Emma for the NXT Women’s Championship at Arrival. That match should’ve defined her and it sucks that credit it not given with those two. Even though I do have respect for the Four Horsewoman, the credit should be on Emma and Paige. However, ever since that match, both Emma and Summer’s career on the main roster went down a little bit.

While Summer was still with Fandango, Emma was paired with Santino and I didn’t get behind the gimmick with him. Why make something that was fun in NXT turn into a joke? While it was good that the both of them had a feud, I couldn’t get behind it. I was also glad that they had their Wrestlemania match at 30, but I felt like there should’ve been more. As soon as Wrestlemania season went down, Summer was out for the time being and Emma was here and there, until she got wrongfully terminated for something she did until she was rehired back. Summer would return to our screens and feud with Layla over Fandango, but her as a face wasn’t doing it. It was the heel in her that I wanted to come out and it did. It was this promo that had her inner heel come out and it was this one.



I have many more that I like of hers, but that one I do like the most.


2015 came to us and once again, it was trying to figure out what would happen for the both of them in that year, but it took one match and that was the 30 second match that started the “#GiveDivasAChance” movement where Emma took the pin. To me, I felt like more should’ve happened with the both of them. While Emma did go back down to NXT as reinvented her career and turned heel as well as teaming up with Dana Brooke, Summer was here and there until the storyline with Rusev, Lana and Dolph ZIggler. Now I’m going to be honest here, I felt like the both of them were in storylines, but I felt like Summer suffered from this the most. Emma was shining in NXT and rebuilding, Summer was suffered in the end when the storyline came to a halt when it was Lana that sabotaged the whole storyline reveling to TMZ that she was engaged to Rusev in real life. Nothing happened since and when the re-debut of Emma came back in 2016 and Summer and Lana were fighting, I felt like they should’ve capitalized on what happened before and have Summer turn.


Since then, I felt like WWE didn’t bring Summer to her potential. Her promo against Sasha the night after Wrestlemania was awesome and there should’ve been more before she got injured. I was looking forward for what Emma and Dana were going to do on the Main Roster, but Emma got hurt, got this Emmalina gimmick for months until she went back to Emma, but again, WWE had no clue what to do up into the summer were Emma wanted a shot at everything. Yes, she did get squashed by Nia Jax, but after that, she wanted everything to be on here. She defeated Mickie James, and WWE should’ve capitalized on it. She was put in the Fatal Four Way, but was done dirty because they added Bayley to it and made her an afterthought (Thankfully she was not pinned) and had an amazing match against Asuka. If they knew Emma was going to be done with the company, then Asuka should’ve had squashed her. Sometimes, I don’t get WWE.


Now here is my opinion with this and I should let everyone know that this is my opinion. I felt like WWE should’ve of put time and the effort into these two. To me, Lana vs. Summer should’ve had the proper ending, her potential should’ve been used, and she should’ve got the big payoff. Same goes for Emma as she went through the injuries, she had the theme song changes, she went back to NXT and she had the gimmicks that were nonsense, but WWE didn’t do that. Instead, they focus on someone that isn’t WWE Championship material instead of focusing on the ones that SHOULD get that push. Sorry, I came across rude, but I just had to be honest.


In the end, I cannot change anything and I’m still sad by this. I wish Summer and Emma luck in whatever they do next. I’m sure they will shine.


However, I do like to send a message to Lio Rush, who put a tweet out there that was uncalled for. It’s not funny when someone loses their job. It could happen to anyone, especially you. You have a lot of respect and trust to earn back after today.


That’s all I have to say. Thanks for reading.

Photoshoot Flavors: The Force of Nature Series
Published by: |   (0) Comments      Read MORE      Filed Under: Photoshoot Flavors

Welcome back to WOW Opinion and welcome back to my critiques. For those of you that know me, I’m Meagan and I’m apart of this blog. I want to apologize for the lack of updates for the past couple of weeks because of work and not having time to update. Now that I have the time to talk about stuff, I think it’s time for me to cover the recent shoots that have happened and that is the Knockout Shoots that went down called the “Forces of Nature”. I will give my thoughts on these photoshoots right now.


Now, everyone that knows me that I’m a pain in the ass when it comes to photoshoots and since the Knockout Photoshoots were kind of a big thing back then, I would always ask if there were any and would take the “L” if they weren’t any. Needless to say, we got shoots in 2013 more often up into the end of 2014 where there was none, then we got little in 2015 and none in 2016. 2017 proved to be a different year as the GFW section on the site picked up and the shoots happened again. From August to October, the GFW KO’s starred in a series called “Forces of Nature”.


Unlike my past shoot reviews, I’m going to talk about the pros and cons about this series. That way I’ll be talking about what I liked and didn’t like about this series.


Starting off with the Pros.


Pros: I like the fact that each Monday or in Diamante’s case, Tuesday. The shoots were coming out each week and gave us anticipation for the next one. It wasn’t an everyday thing because if it was, there would’ve been none for weeks to come. I also like the fact that the white background like how they used to do the shoots in were not used. White backgrounds got annoying and it didn’t stand out for them that much. I thought each girl represented the shoot with ease and it flowed well with what they were doing, some of the girls were into the shoots and had fun. That’s what I liked about the shoot. Once I’ll get to the end, I will say who my favorites from the shoots was.


Onto the cons and there is going to be a lot of them that I will number and not put in a big paragraph.


  1. Anticipation: Impact/GFW has a bad tendency in doing this and this was the first thing that came across my mind when Laurel’s shoots out first. She had the video and when she mentioned it was going to be a photoshoot, the excitement was there, but when the link was posted, it was just the video and Laurel was posting it on social media. Needless to say, the shoot was posted, but the link ended up being a dead link. Her shoot is on WOW Candy Visuals that you can view here.
  2. Don’t put merchandise out just yet: Another issue that I came across was GFW putting out the photos of the Knockouts in a bundle. It had the ones that were advertised in the shoots, with the addition of Taya, Tayrn and Karen. If those three were going to be added to the shoots then make sure you add them into the bundle pack too. You want to know the craziest thing about this? The bundle of the pics are 35 dollars. Now this leads me to the next problem I found here.
  3. Advertised Knockouts get no shoots: Now here’s where I have an issue with this thing. As I stated before that Taya, Taryn and Karen were not in the photo bundle, but they got shoots while Rosemary and Sienna, who looked like could’ve been the best shoots of the bunch, did not get their shoots released here. Here is my issue with this and this stems back to 2014 where ODB was apart of the shoots for the 2015 Calendar, but she was released and not put in the calendar. Rosemary and Sienna are apart of these shoots and with GFW saying that the shoot of Karen and McKenzie were the last ones, it’s kind of a punch in the gut.


Those were my pros and cons of the shoots. As for my favorites, I will tell you who was my favorite out of them and give the top five.


  1. Taya’s Force of Fire: (
  2. Laurel’s force of Water (
  3. Taryn’s Force of Earth (
  4. Gail’s Force of Wind  (
  5. Allie’s Force of Wind. (


All the shoots were pretty good and I enjoyed them. So I’m going to leave this to you. Which shoot did you guys like the most? Whose you preferred better? Leave me some thoughts and I will see you guys next time around.

Meagan’s Corner #09: Mae Young Classic Round One Thoughts
Published by: |   (0) Comments      Read MORE      Filed Under: Meagan's Corner

Welcome back to another edition of Meagan’s Corner. Here we are with Episode nine and it’s going to
be about the Mae Young Classic. But first, I want to give an apology for the late entry blog regarding
what I wanted to see regarding Sasha Banks having a good run as champion. I didn’t know that this was
going to happen so soon and let me tell you this, I’m not happy about the sudden change as well. In
entry ten, I will talk about my frustrations about the hot potato and how someone like Sasha should get
a longer reign as champion.

Going back on topic since normally I do go off topic, I’m going to talk about the Mae Young Classic first
round matches and what I thought of them and then at the end of the section, I will give my thoughts on
what match was the better of each episode, who I thought was impressive, and rank the episode
matches that I liked. I should state this these are my opinions of what will happen and how it will go


Episode One:


In this episode, you had the following match up.



Kay Lee Ray and Princesa Sugehit was an interesting match to start off the night to say at least and an
interesting one to start off the round. I’ve seen KLR wrestle before when I watched SHIMMER back
during Wrestlemania 31 weekend and I knew that she was going to be a hit. This was my first time
seeing Princesa Sugehit and I was also impressed with her. I liked the styles in the match up and how
they were matched up. Decent match up with Sugehit winning. The following match was Serena Deeb
vs. Vanessa Borne. The last time I saw Serena wrestle was back at SHIMMER 53 in New York. I was glad
that she was back in the ring and she looked like she didn’t miss a beat. However, I wasn’t too sure with
Vanessa Borne. Something about her was off with me, but I did like the fact that she did the best she can
against Serena, but in the end it was Serena winning the match. Shayna vs. Zeda was a matching styles
match with submission backgrounds. This is the first time I saw Shayna wrestle and getting used to her
as this was my first time seeing Zeda wrestle. I was impressed with the both of them and how they’ve
matched up. In the end, it was Shayna winning the match, but I was impressed with Zeda too. I could see
her be on television soon because she has a nice look. The final matchup of this episode was Abbey Leith vs. Jazzy Gabert. I’m familiar with the both of them because Abbey wrestled here locally and made a big
name for herself. Same with Jazzy too and she did appear on Impact Wrestling back three years ago, but
it was being Chris Sabin’s bodyguard at the time (Typical TNA), but this match up what intriguing and
had me on the edge of my seat the whole entire time. This was the perfect example of taller vs. smaller
and it was a good story. I personally thought Jazzy was going to win here, but was fine with Abbey
winning this match. The both of them looked strong and I did like the fact that Jazzy shook Abbey’s hand
in respect. Props to the both of them.


We then went onto Episode two of the show that featured




OK, I’m going to be critical with this episode because some of the matches didn’t click for me. I’ll try my
best to be nice as I can here, but I feel like I need to express myself. The first match of this round was
Mercedes Martinez vs. Xia Li. Sixteen year Veteran vs. A First match. Now, I have respect for Mercedes
Martinez and I’m very happy that she’s apart of this. I always enjoyed her matches, especially the
matches with Jessicka Havok in WSU, but this match with Xia Li, I didn’t care for. I’m also going to give
Xia the props too, but something did not click regarding her. I know people were giving her props, but I
felt disappointed. Needless to say that Mercedes did win this match and moved on, but I feel like Xia
does have potential, but needs more work. Nobody can become the best overnight. Another match I felt
was another disappointment was Marti Belle vs. Rachel Evers. I know Marti Belle more than Rachel
Evers, but to me, this match was disappointing to say at least. I do have to give credit where it’s due
because Marti suited well as the heel here and she was doing that well, but something didn’t click here.
Needless to say that Rachel did win the match and moved on. The next match that was a little bit better
was Rhea Ripley vs. Miranda Salinas. These were my first time seeing these two wrestled and I was
impressed with Rhea Ripley the most here. Again, like Xia, Miranda has potential and I hope she will
blossom as well. The final match on the card had to be the better match on this card and that was Mia
Yim vs. Sarah Logan and the plus side about this? They’ve wrested each other before. The last time I saw
Mia Yim was on Impact as Jade and her matches against Rosemary was amazing. Sarah’s look is totally
different and I do like the hunter look. It’s something you’ve never seen before in a women and I think
she has an amazing chance to be on television. I was hooked with this match and it could’ve went either
way, but in the end, It was Mia Yim winning with a tribute to Gail Kim. That was touching because I
respect the hell out of Gail Kim and adore her. Props to Mia for using that move and props to Sarah for
having an amazing match with her as well.


The third episode had to be one of my favorite episodes of this because of the match ups. In this round
you have the following facing off against each other.




The first match up with Ayesha Raymond and Toni Storm was a match that I was going to see Toni Storm
face off for the first time. I saw her work and I was impressed. Her look has to be the best one and its
unique. Sort of like a Becky Lynch punk rock type with the hat. Ayesha I wasn’t familiar with, but I was
impressed with her. Both of these girls looked great in this match up, but I could see why Toni Storm
moved on because she is that good at what she does. Kudos to Ayesha as well. The second match was
Dakota Kai going against Kavita Devi. Honestly, this match was not the one I would expect Dakota would
go over in because I was actually expecting Kavita as well. Kavita did surprise me and she did impress,
but I feel like she does need more work. I was glad to see Dakota be in a WWE ring and she did look
impressive as well. Match was fairly good and Dakota won with the double foot stomp. I like Dakota
now. The next match of the night was Sage Beckett vs. Bianca Belair. Now prior towards this match, I did
watch Bianca’s match against Aliyah to qualify for this, and I didn’t know the hype behind her besides
her slapping the shit out of someone with her hair. I didn’t get what the hype was at first because I
wasn’t on the train with that. Sage Beckett I respect the hell out of because like me, we both have
polycystic ovarian syndrome, and she doesn’t let that bother her. So I had to see this match for myself
and boy, Bianca impressed the hell out of me. Potential in both those girls and I see the both of them
have a great future in WWE. Sage was impressive as well and improved big time from her early days.
The final matchup of the night and the match I felt like was the match of the entire round. Piper Niven
vs. Santana Garrett. I love Santana Garrett as she is one of my favorite independent workers, so of
course I had to go out there and root for her. Piper I was unfamiliar with, but she impressed the hell out
of me. This match had me on the end of my seat because I didn’t know who was going to win. After a
missed attempted of the shining star press, Piper was able to win the match and go onto the second
round. Hell of a match and Piper won me over.


However, before I go to the last round, I just have to say something and its about these disgusting
comments I’ve seen about Piper. Not all girls are going to be blonde haired, blue eyes and perfect tens.
We come in all shapes and different sizes and the comment said about her was totally wrong. Hell, I bet
YOU can’t move like she can and if you went in that ring, you wouldn’t last two minutes.


The final episode of the round featured the following people as this one had star power in with two
people. The match ups were:




We start the episode with Candice LaRae aka Candice Wrestling going against Renee Michelle. I know
Candice is married to Johnny Gargano and I did see her wrestle before. Renee Michelle I heard of, but
this was the first time I saw her wrestle and considering that I am a fan of Candice, I was pulling for her.
Her match with Renee was decent to say at least, but part of me didn’t feel this match up. I thought the
pace was slow, but in the end it picked up. Candice won the match and moves on. The second match
was Taynara vs. Lacey. This was the first time I was seeing this match up and I was wondering how this
was going to go down. It was a surprisingly good match up, and I do have to say that the both of them
could be on NXT in the future. It’s not often we see a pinup USA gimmick and a blackbelt gimmick, but
these two can play it well. Lacey won this match, but Tanynara did a wonderful job here as well. The
third match up was Nicole Savoy vs. Reina Gonzalez and personally, I have to ask a question. What in the
world is up with Reina’s eye patch? She has a pretty face, but the eye patch doesn’t do justice for her.
Something was off in this match and I wasn’t feeling it. It was also said that Nicole did suffer an injury
which I understood and I knew Reina was working on the leg, but this match didn’t just click for me
despite Nicole winning. The final match of the tournament was Kairi Sane vs. Tessa Blanchard. Like
Candice and Renee’s match, it started out slow, but it picked up for a back and forth contest. I was
impressed with Tessa here despite what people say about her and Kairi was also impressive as well. In
the end it was Kairi winning the match and moving on, leading to Tessa breaking down and hugging
Kairi. I would be emotional as well because having a women’s tournament means something a lot, so I
can understand Tessa.


SO now I gave the thoughts on the match up, I’m going to say out of each episode was the better match.
Episode One: Abbey Leith vs. Jazzy Gabart: The perfect example of a David vs. Goliath situation and who
was going to overpower one another. This just showed in this match up with Abbey Leith being the one
to win the match.


Episode Two: Mia Yim vs. Sarah Logan: I said that I didn’t care for the other matches despite me being a
fan of Mercedes Martinez, but this one was the one that would win it all for me.


Episode Three: Santana Garrett vs. Piper Niven: I know that this is a biased pick here, but I did think this
match stole the entire episode and the show. Piper showed why she was not going to be denied while
Santana showed heart and determination.


Episode Four: Taynara Conti vs. Lacey Evans: Different Personalities and skills. I would’ve picked Kairi
Sane vs. Tessa Blanchard, but I think this one was a bit better for me because of Lacey and Taynara being
different and having different skills.


The top ten that impressed were.
1. Piper Niven
2. Jazzy Gabart
3. Kairi Sane
4. Santana Garrett
5. Mia Yim
6. Toni Storm
7. Bianca Belair
8. Taynara Conti
9. Lacey Evans
10. Zeda


Matches I preferred by episode
1. Episode 3
2. Episode 1
3. Episode 4
4. Episode 2.


So those are my thoughts regarding the first round. Ill talk about the second round when I watch it.
Don’t forget that these are my opinions and only my opinions. Until Next time…

Meagan’s Corner #08: Both Women’s Championships Have New Lea...
Published by: |   (0) Comments      Read MORE      Filed Under: Meagan's Corner

Welcome back to another edition of Meagan’s Corner. I’m back with another edition of this blog and I
think it would be time to write this after Summerslam. I didn’t do this last week because I wanted to
wait until everything is calmed down. The 30th annual Summerslam has come and go and now we are
going to be in the Fall months.


Before I go into my blog, I shall bring up a couple of things. First off, I was happy that Finn Balor busted
out the Demon again for his match against Bray Wyatt. I always enjoy the Demon character because it’s
a special feeling considering that I saw it a couple of years ago for NXT back in 2015 here in Philadelphia.
I should mention that it was a sigh of relief seeing him hold both his arms up considering that he did get
hurt at this very event.



And I should say, that is a MAN (aww)


Another moment that happened was Cesaro going into the crowd and breaking a beach ball.



Seriously, if you are going to play with a beach ball, go to a beach and play with one. I don’t know what
is the habit of people bringing in this balls and causing a distraction during the matches? I applaud
Cesaro for going in there and doing that, but as they say, people never learn as it did happen during
Jason Jordon vs. Finn Balor’s match last night that had me very annoyed.


And finally, another moment was when Brock was down on the ground and under a table thanks to
Reigns, Joe, and Braun causing the damage like it was on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and I thought
he was going to lose that match.



Only for him to come back and retain his title by giving the F-5 to Roman Reigns to win his match.



The anti-Reigns fans went home happy while some of us that want to see a full time champion were left


Now I got that out of the way, let’s talk about the main topic of the title. We do have new champions.
Smackdown having Natalya and Raw having Sasha as the new champions on their brands. The first
match of the night between the both of them was Natalya vs. Naomi with Natalya being the first one out
of the both of them.


Then it was Naomi who was out next for the both of them.



The match itself was really good and I thought that this was Naomi’s better showing during her reign as
Women’s Champion. I’m not the biggest Natalya Fan, but I think she looked good as well entrance wise
and ring attire wise. The both of them have some good chemistry with one another and it showed in this
match. Personally, I thought Natalya had her at some point during the sharp shooter and I thought
Naomi had her at a couple of points, but it was this move that turned the point in the match that lead to
Natalya winning the championship.



I’ll leave my thoughts on Natalya winning the title when I’m done the RAW part, but I felt bad for Naomi
in the end too. She worked hard despite her second run being a dud and wanted to give her a hug after
the match because I felt bad for her.



For the Raw Women’s Match, we had Sasha Banks come out of the back first, wearing some cool looking



With the second one being Alexa out of the back as she looked really good in Pink.



As someone that’s a fan of the both of them, I thought this match was decent, but I still prefer their
Great Balls of Fire match because that was a fun one. This match was an Alexa mostly dominated match,
but I was surprised to see some of the moves that she was busting out. The Double knees of the top
rope into the Insult to Injury was awesome, the fact that Sasha was not giving up was a good story to
tell, the first Bank statement leading to Alexa smashing her arm was nicely done and I thought Alexa
would’ve won with this.



But in the end, it was Sasha that locked her up into the Bank Statement and won her fourth Women’s
Championship, tying Charlotte at four. I was fine with either result because I do like Alexa and Sasha (I
keep the peace) and was fine with one of them walking out the champion.



However, I do have to be the one that has to give the opinions and like I always say, these are just my
opinions and I’m going to say what I need to say about these titles changes that happened last week at


Out of those two, I’m for the Sasha Banks one more than the Natalya one. I’m not going to deny the fact
that Natalya busted her ass after all of the shit she’s gone through over the past years since her last run
as champion, but for me, I cannot get behind her. Her feud with Nikki Bella brought out one of her best
promos as a heel and that’s what got me interested in her, but since that and prior towards the brand
split and everything, she wasn’t really doing for me. Now, I’m for giving people a shot and this is what I’ll
do. I will give Natalya the shot to prove herself as champion. If she has a good reign, she has a good
reign as champion and I’ll be for it.


Now for Sasha, I want to see how they would do this considering that I’m for this one. The reason why I
said that is I want her title run to be a long and decent one. Not back and forth with her and Alexa, in
which I do fear will happen because Alexa does have a rematch up and my fear is Sasha will have a short
run as champion. That’s the bad feeling that will happen. Hopefully Sasha will retain the title tonight and
go forward.


That’s what I have to say on those title runs and I want the best out of them. I think Natalya will go at
least 90 days as champion while Sasha could pull a 90 day as well. I should mention that Carmella is
holding the money in the bank for Smackdown and maybe Natalya won’t make it to 90 and Bayley could
fight and say Sasha won the title while she was hurt and having her turn heel (which I doubt because
Sasha fits the heel role better) and maybe she won’t go over 90. These two runs could be interesting.


With that being said, I’m going to lead this to you and there’s going to be a poll at the bottom of this.
Which run do you want to see go longer? Sasha or Natalya. This should be very interesting to say at


Finally, going off topic here regarding Wrestling, but please keep the victims of Hurricane Harvey in your
prayers, especially the people of Texas. They need love and support right now and seeing all of those
photos are very upsetting.

Meagan’s Corner #07: Booing Bayley For What?
Published by: |   (2) Comments      Read MORE      Filed Under: Meagan's Corner

Welcome back to another edition of Meagan’s Corner. First I want to apologize for the long gap since my last post. There was some stuff I had to do in the real life before me going to Monday Night Raw in Washington, DC, but now that I’m back. It’s time to talk about what happened on Monday Night Raw last night.


And the topic I want to talk about was last night was the fact that once again, Bayley being booed. Now, I’m not the biggest fan of Bayley, though I do have to give respect where it’s due for her and the injury that she suffered the week prior does stink big time since we are only a week away from Summerslam and considering that Summerslam could’ve been the moment that she finally got the title back from Alexa or a potential Sasha heel turn the night after Summerslam, but it looks like this won’t happen at all.


While watching the show last night, I heard that there was a lot of booing and she was taken away by it. Trust me, if I was a face, injured and being booed, I would’ve ripped the marks and told them to get in the ring. That would be me, but seeing Bayley’s face and hearing the booing, I can tell she was in shock about it and not really happy about it. Also, the statement about her coming back stronger drew more boos. Honestly, I felt bad for Bayley because she busts her ass to get where she is and injuries do occur when you are in the ring. Accidents happen, but I guess when it comes to someone you dislike being injured, you boo the heck out of them.


So, can someone explain to me the reasons why Bayley’s been booed as of late? I know for a fact that she was booed out of the Royal Farms Arena back at Extreme Rules and that was her moment on her getting extreme and snapping on Alexa Bliss. I know for a fact that her character seems to gone down since her arrival on Raw a year ago, and I know for a fact that WWE doesn’t know what to do with her character on top of that, but can someone explain to me why would you boo her?  Now here is where I come in and give an opinion on this because I have a feeling where this could lead too. Here we go.


The reason why people are beginning not to like Bayley is she’s just a babyface with a character that adults cannot get with. As I stated before, I respect Bayley, but I’m not the biggest fan of her. I feel like her character applies more to children and the children can get behind it. The same thing goes for John Cena, children and women (not me) get behind him while the men don’t. The same goes for Roman Reigns as well. What does Bayley need to do to get cheered once again? I would selfishly say send her back down to NXT because that gimmick worked down there, but it’s not clicking on the main roster, but she’s since graduated from NXT and doesn’t need to go backwards. If WWE does turn her heel, you know how many children would be crying and have their heart breaking to see their hero turn. Those are just some thoughts I have.


Another thing that came into my head was, if Bayley was not injured and she was still going into this match, and considering that Brooklyn is a very tough crowd to be in, how do you think that Brooklyn would’ve reacted to her considering that she had the best performance of a life time two years ago. Would the crowd boo her or no? Those are the questions I have.


Bottom line is this, if you’re portraying a character and you get hurt along the way, you don’t deserved to be booed at all. That’s what the fans in Toronto need to know because anything happens in wrestling and accidents do happen. I wish Bayley well and take all the time she needs to rest up and to the fans that were booing yesterday about her injury, shame on you because if it was someone you liked A LOT, I bet you wouldn’t be booing them.

So what are your thoughts on this? Was it bad that the fans booed her? Leave thoughts
