A possible showdown between Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter is brewing. What does this mean for AEW’s women’s divison? The Current State of AEW’s Women’s Division It has been well documented since the company’s early days that AEW’s women’s division has struggled to find its footing. While they have shown flashes of greatness, such as Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa’s critically acclaimed matches, Baker and Ruby Soho main-eventing AEW’s first Grand Slam and the famed deathmatch between Anna Jay & Tay Melo and Penelope Ford & The Bunny, they still have not been able to get the screentime and storyline-depth…

This is the second and final part in a series dissecting some of AEW’s most fleshed-out storylines. If you haven’t read part 1 yet, I highly suggest you do before continuing! Have fun. Big Bad Boss MJF vs Wardlow Now I’m sure a lot of you are going, ‘What part of one man beating multiple security guards at once is realistic?’ None of it. But that’s not the point. The essence of the story between the ‘Salt of the Earth’ and the current TNT Champion makes perfect sense and can be regarded as a dramatized version of real toxic boss-employee…

Since its inception in 2019, All Elite Wrestling has become a legitimate competitive brand towards the global juggernaut that is the WWE. Of the qualities that have propelled them to the top, I believe the one thing they do better than any other wrestling promotion today is the way they tell stories both inside and outside the ring.

In those 133 days, Belair brought a different type of prestige and legitimacy to the belt as a fresh, strong and consistent champion. She challenged the (albeit small) SmackDown women’s division to better themselves in all fields (we’ll get into that in the next paragraph) in order to even match up to her, much less capture her title. Let’s take a quick look at her title reign and the…

Photo Credit: WWE I’m sure I’ve got eyes narrowing at the heading alone, but you need to hear me out. There are undoubtedly numerous names that have contributed to the growth and legitimization of women’s wrestling throughout history, but no one has done it like The Boss. Character Work Appearing on Stone Cold’s Broken Skulls Sessions podcast, she explained that her gimmick developed from watching the manner with which her first cousin, Snoop Dogg, presented himself, and the way those around him always called him ‘boss’. As The Boss, she magnifies her natural swagger, confidence and charisma through everything ranging…

Photo Credit – David Falcon Now you might be wondering how I could be saying this when she just recently became one half of only the 3rd ever female tag team champions in NXT history. It is an impressive accolade and responsibility to bestow on anyone – but Candice LeRae is not just anyone. Prior to debuting in NXT, LeRae was arguably the best female wrestler on the American independent circuit, going toe-to-toe with a significant portion of both WWE and AEW’s rosters – male and female. Through the storytelling in her matches and feuds, she developed the ultimate underdog…
