5 Wrestling Match Stipulations We Will Not See in WWE Women's Division

5 Wrestling Match Stipulations We Will Not See in WWE Women's Division

The WWE have a new group of competitors in their Women's Division. Arguably some of the best women to compete in the company are competing right now. I know, I know, what about Trish Stratus and Lita? They are great but for the most part, they were the only two in the division during their runs that could go on the level they went at it. Today, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks are the only two that can really go at the level they do and only against each other. It is pretty safe to say though that the Women's Division today, overall, is better than it has been in the past. This could just be my biased against gimmick matches speaking considering the past Women's/Diva's Division was pretty much nothing but gimmick matches. Here we are going to take a look at some match stipulations that WWE would NEVER put on a match in the Women's Division.

First Blood

The first blood match is a match stipulation that requires the competitors to bleed. Well, at least one of them. You win by busting open your opponent. Usually these matches are contested under hardcore rules so weapons are allowed, and often are the reason for the bloodletting.

Why We Won't See It Happen

There are a couple of reasons why we probably will never see a First Blood match in the Women's Division in WWE. One is, well, just how would you market that to viewers? Second, WWE is currently in their PG era where they don't want the men bleeding on camera, let alone the women. Third, it may come off as just barbaric and turn fans off to see women compete in a match where they must cause so much pain on their opponent that they literally bleed.

Disclaimer by a Fan

I know, there have been a few instances where blood has been introduced in a women's match. The differences there are that the blood was accidental and not required to win the match.

Inferno Match

Similar to the first blood match, an Inferno Match requires quite a bit of brutality to win. Rather than causing your opponent to bleed though, here you have to set them on fire somehow. With male competitors like Kane this is easy - simply set their costume on fire.

Kiss My Ass Match

This one would probably be the dream match for most pre-teens out there that get their kicks off of the slightest innuendo. You win this match by beating your opponent down and making them kiss your ass - either willingly or by force.

Why We Won't See it Happen

Why we won't see this one? Well, it would probably turn into a public relations nightmare for the WWE. It could turn bad very quickly as the women already wear skimpy ring attire - you can't have them fidgeting with it in the ring.

Object on a Pole

This match stipulation was extremely popular for the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) writers even if fans grew tired of it very quickly. Some notable objects on a pole included Viagra, the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, boxes with gag prizes (and various titles in the company depending on the match) and even Buff Bagwell's mom (she was placed on an elevated forklift instead).

Why We Won't See This Happen

This stipulation probably would never happen in the Women's Division of WWE because what would you put up there? A contract? WWE prefers the ladder match stipulation for those types of matches (such as AJ Styles versus James Elsworth). Additional clothing? Doubtful as WWE prefers their women to be skimpily dressed as much as possible.

Strap or Chain Match

The idea here is to be tied to your opponent via some kind of rope/chain/strap so that they cannot get away. This match stipulation is reserved for the most violent of competitors. The last chain match I remember was Rusev versus John Cena.

Why We Won't See This Happen

This match stipulation also requires A LOT of brutality. While Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair did compete in a steel cage which turned violent, it was not as brutal as a chain match could be. These matches usually lead to lots of bloodshed which is a big no-no right now for WWE men, let alone the women.


See, I made it through without mentioning a scaffold match, shark cage match (though Chris Jericho will be in one at the 2017 Royal Rumble) and without mentioning high school humor over the first entry. Got a weird stipulation we won't see in the Women's Division let us know in the comments.
