Mandy Rose def. Naomi
As her SmackDown Women’s Championship Match against Asuka at WWE Fastlane drew closer, Mandy Rose looked to firmly prove that she was ready for The Empress of Tomorrow by taking down longtime rival Naomi on the blue brand.
With Naomi still clearly harboring resentment for Mandy’s attempts at causing a rift in her marriage, The Glow came out swinging on God’s Greatest Creation. However, Rose was able to weather the early storm and, with Sonya Deville running interference at ringside, Mandy was able to deck Naomi and put her down for three.
After the win, Asuka arrived and wasted no time in dropping both Rose and Deville with an emphatic attack on the SmackDown LIVE stage. The message sent? Asuka was undoubtedly ready for WWE Fastlane.
