It looks like WWE will finally do the Four Horsewomen vs. Four Horsewomen match at the Survivor Series pay-per-view on November 18 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
WWE’s Horsewomen are Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Bayley and Becky Lynch while MMA’s Horsewomen are Ronda Rousey, WWE NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke. Angles were planned and filmed for the match in 2017 but the match never happened. There’s been recent talk of doing the match and word is that teases are being sent out.
Regarding Duke and Shafir in NXT, both are being praised for their work. Shafir has had just two matches so far and Duke hasn’t wrestled anything but practice matches. Duke was set to make her NXT live event debut along with Shafir at a live event in Largo, FL last month but Duke was pulled from the show due to a minor injury. Duke impressed people with a practice match at the WWE Performance Center and some believe she is a “prodigy” at pro wrestling. There’s also feelings that Rousey is great on the big stage, when the match is completely laid out, and that Baszler is definitely ready. The Observer adds that some people believe Duke will end up being the best of the four.
There’s also potential for a Horsewomen angle at the first-ever all-women’s Evolution pay-per-view a few weeks earlier on October 28 but word is that the actual match will take place at the Survivor Series.
Shayna Baszler recently took some time to discuss her famous stable of friends known as MMA’s Four Horsewomen and the possibility of facing WWE’s incarnation down the line with Inside the Ropes.
Baszler was questioned about the possibility of seeing a match take place between the eight women now under WWE’s banner. She said her Four Horsewomen have never backed down from a fight before while taking a shot about how WWE’s incarnation came second.
“If they want it to happen, the four of us are fighters,” Baszler said. “We’ve never turned down any sort of fight. They want to argue about who is the Four Horsewomen and who owns it. I mean, we had it first and that’s… fact. It was given to us so we didn’t just call ourselves that, it was given to us.
“They started calling themselves — I mean we’re an actual team that trains together. Bayley and Sasha — they’re not even friends half the time right now, so who knows what’s going on with them? You know what I mean? Whatever.
“If they want to, we won’t turn down a fight, ever.”
