Charlotte Flair def. SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch via disqualification

Charlotte Flair def. SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch via disqualification

MELBOURNE, Australia – After months of blistering verbal battles, blindside attacks and boiling animosity, SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch defended her title against Charlotte Flair in a massive confrontation at WWE Super Show-Down … but it wouldn’t finish without controversy.

Both Superstars started the match firing right out of the gate, exchanging a series of forceful strikes until Lynch ultimately took control after dropping The Queen onto the unforgiving outside floor. From there, The Irish Lass Kicker looked to ground Flair with a smothering ground-and-pound attack that included a Fujiwara Armbar which got the WWE Universe believing Becky could get Charlotte to tap.

Refusing to quit, Flair battled back at every opportunity, managing to counter several of Lynch’s attacks and work in an offense that, although gritty, was undeniably effective. With both Superstars now battered, another series of brutal exchanges ensued, with Lynch managing to survive both a Spear and Boston Crab from The Queen. Charlotte’s offense was mounting, however, and it prompted Becky  to just opt to and leave, grabbing her SmackDown Women’s Title and trying to hightail it. The Queen wouldn’t allow it, though, and threw Becky, her title still in her hand, back into the ring.

Hitting another Spear and locking Becky in the Figure-Eight Leg Lock, it appeared as if Flair was mere seconds away from becoming the new SmackDown Women’s Champion. However, the ever-resourceful Lynch was able to grab the title while locked in the submission hold and began pelting Flair with it, prompting the official to call for a disqualification.

Due to the disqualification, Charlotte had won the match, but not the championship. Furious, she rushed up the ramp to attack The Irish Lass Kicker and started whaling on her. But Lynch was able to take advantage of Charlotte’s rage and frustration, soon getting the upper hand on the outside and ultimately delivering a Bexploder to her former best friend. Becky, finally, was able to depart with her title, but one thing was clear: Flair may have been left downed Down Under, but this rivalry is certainly far from over.
