The SmackDown LIVE Women’s division was left in a state of flux after Carmella, Natalya and Tamina attacked Charlotte Flair and Naomi last week. And, after interfering in the SmackDown Women’s Championship match between The Queen and Naomi a week ago, the three followed up by ambushing Charlotte backstage prior to tonight’s tag team match.
The “welcoming committee” of The Princess of Staten Island and Natalya were flanked by Tamina and James Ellsworth at ringside for their tag team battle with the SmackDown Women’s Champion and Charlotte. Early in the bout, Naomi had to go it alone, as Charlotte was nowhere to be found after the pre-match attack. Still showing the effects of the beatdown, The Queen appeared in the nick of the time, bringing the heat with Naomi. However, the advantage of having Tamina and Ellsworth at ringside paid dividends, as they distracted Naomi and allowed the F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S One to catch The Glow off-guard for the win.
Just as “the welcoming committee” began to celebrate, Becky Lynch entered the arena. At first, she appeared to be joining the committee, but she instead helped Flair and Naomi clear the ring of what were now their mutual enemies. However, the beating Flair and Naomi had suffered caught up to them yet again when all three were eventually laid out by Carmella, Natalya and Tamina.
