Asuka def. Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville
Having been so worked up by Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville and Carmella, Asuka now took on Rose & Deville in a Handicap Match, while the SmackDown Women’s Champion gloated on commentary.
Despite the numbers disadvantage and Carmella causing distractions a plenty from the announcers table, including moonwalking across the desk, Asuka powered through and showed no signs of the lost confidence that Princess Mella was referring to. Rose & Deville had no answers for The Empress’ attacks, and Asuka forced Sonya to tap to the Asuka Lock.
After the match, much like last week, Carmella brazenly got right in Asuka’s face. However, right as Carmella stepped to her, Mandy tried to avenge her fallen friend by attacking Asuka, but The Empress heard her coming and dropped her. However, this left Asuka’s back turned to The Princess of Staten Island, creating a clear lane for Carmella to smash the SmackDown Women’s Title over her challenger’s back and drill her with a superkick.
Carmella may or may not be ready for Asuka, but she has certainly been ready to pounce in hopes of gaining the upper hand… as she did tonight.
