After Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair both attempted to get a singles match with Lana, SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon instead opted to put The Irish Lass Kicker and The Queen into a one-on-one bout against each other with an opportunity to build momentum for the Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match at WWE Battleground that will determine who will go on to challenge Naomi for the SmackDown Women’s Title at SummerSlam.
Becky locked in her excruciating Dis-arm-her and tenaciously prevented several counter attempts by Flair, leaving The Queen with no alternative but to submit. The two Superstars shook hands after their edge-of-your-seat thriller, but Lana, Natalya and Tamina teamed up to attack Becky and Charlotte. The alliance would be short-lived, however, as Natalya began mixing it up with Tamina and Lana. After several high-impact collisions left Natalya down, Tamina exited the ring on her own accord, and Lana was the last Superstar standing in the ring.
