Are you happy that James Ellsworth is back on SmackDown LIVE?
In what could be an omen of what’s to come in the SmackDown LIVE Women’s division, Naomi took on Carmella in a non-title match. Carmella was in an uproar after Naomi had defeated her in tag team competition last week, and she wanted to even the score in tonight’s singles bout.
Ms. Money in the Bank was certainly feeling the glow at several points throughout the contest, but the pivotal moment came when James Ellsworth (who’s suspension ended late last week) appeared out of nowhere and threw Naomi off the top rope behind the official’s back, allowing Carmella to defeat Naomi with a vicious superkick to the jaw.
The Princess of Staten Island and Ellsworth celebrated up the ramp with glee, as Carmella only continued to make her case that she is a legitimate threat to the SmackDown Women’s Championship, especially as the cunning keeper of the Money in the Bank contract.
