Before her first contender could be crowned in a Fatal 5-Way Match, new SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch thanked the WWE Universe for their continued support and make it clear that she was ready to take on all comers.
The action picked up right where it left off at Backlash with Nikki Bella, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, Natalya and Carmella all wanting to stake their claim as the first Clubber Lang proxy for Becky “Balboa” and her championship.
In the midst of all those statements attempting to be made, Nikki and Carmella continued their ongoing rivalry with more strikes exchanged, but it was ultimately Alexa who pulled through. She defeated Nikki after craftily throwing Carmella out of the ring after the Princess of Staten Island hit the Total Bellas star with a superkick, becoming the new No. 1 contender for Team Blue’s top female prize.
After the match, Bliss proved she would not be bashful, taunting Lynch and eager to show that she was both not afraid and ready to shine.
