The two enemies-turned-partners couldn’t get on the same page after the opening bell, as they argued over who should start the match, then bickered again when Becky tagged herself in.  However, Sasha & Becky showed flashes of cohesive teamwork at several points, working in tandem to take out their opponents with a pair of dropkicks at ringside.

Naomi put an end to her opponent’s burst of offense by knocking Becky off the top rope, sending her crashing to the arena floor. Sasha’s former Team B.A.D allies cornered The Irish Lass Kicker, with Tamina pummeling her and Naomi showing no regard for the rules, yanking on Becky’s bright orange hair and stomping her face into the mat. With the WWE Universe firmly in her corner, Becky escaped the clutches of her rivals on several occasions, but Naomi & Tamina prevented her from reaching The Boss and continued the punishment.

Finally, a battle-worn Becky sent Naomi over the ropes and staggered Tamina, providing an opportunity for her to tag Sasha into the battle. The Boss came in fired up, countering several attacks from Naomi, and locked in the Bank Statement, only for Tamina to break  the hold. The distraction gave Naomi an opening to connect with Rear View, but she could not put Sasha away. Becky recovered from the beatdown to even the odds and focus on Naomi, allowing Sasha to counter an attack from Tamina into the Bank Statement. Simultaneously, The Irish Lass Kicker cut off Naomi and trapped her in the Dis-arm-her, leaving Tamina with no other option but to tap out to Banks’ hold.

Sasha Banks & Becky Lynch proved they could work as a cohesive unit at WWE Fastlane, but as both women target the Divas Championship, becoming friends does not seem to be a likely option.
