After a disappointing shortage of women’s Pay-Per-View main events in 2019, these four women close out WWE TLC 2019 having earned their spot in a thrilling match.

Before WWE TLC 2019, the last time anyone from the women’s division main evented a WWE Pay-Per-View was Survivor Series 2019 last month and before that, Extreme Rules back in July. Other than these two matches, the only other women’s main event on PPV happened at WrestleMania.

Which, hey, I get what some people may be thinking right now. “Well, they got the main event of WrestleMania. Why does it matter we only had four women’s main events on PPV?” First off, that is entirely the wrong thing to be thinking in any situation.

Second, the fact that WWE featured 27 major events in the past year and only four of those shows included the women in the main event is a big problem. Truthfully, it’s a big problem worth addressing in a long form article at a later date, but if nothing else, as WWE TLC 2019 goes off of the air, the women involved in tonight’s main event make up for lost time by not only delivering one of the best matches of the night, but a late contender for Match of the Year.

Tonight, Asuka and Kairi Sane (collectively known as The Kabuki Warriors) successfully defended their Women’s Tag Team Championships in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match against Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.

In a match that featured just as much (if not, more) high octane, wacky action and jaw dropping spots as the main event TLC match that three out of the mentioned four women competed in at last year’s TLC event, the women more than proved why not only they belonged in the main event picture, but why women in general should not be as overlooked as they have been for PPV main events in 2019.

On a card that included such electric contests as Buddy Murphy vs. Aleister Black and New Day vs. Revival, it was these four women who truly stood out along a stacked card, thanks to a tremendous match.
