WWE Smackdown Results returned as Carmella was loosening up backstage as Shayna Baszler, Nia Jax, and Reginald walked past and Jax made a comment about her not treating her guy very well.
Shayna Baszler w/Nia Jax and Reginald vs. Natalya w/Tamina
Jax was on commentary to continue that current trend we can’t stand. Guess they don’t think anyone can tell a story in the ring anymore?
They locked up and Natalya backed Baszler into a corner and the two exchanged blows before Natalya took her down by her legs and attempted a sharpshooter.
Baszler kicked out of it and went for a Coquina Clutch that Natalya countered into a small package that Baszler reversed, and Natalya re-reversed for the pin.
Jax headed into the ring and took Natalya down. As they beat down Natalya, Tamina came in and Jax grabbed her so Baszler could hit a kick to the midsection and then a knee.
Jax hit Tamina with a leg drop while Baszler hit Natalya with a running knee in the corner. Jax cleaned up by nailing both with backside splashes.
The Riott Squad came in and hit a couple of dropkicks, with Baszler rolling to the floor.
Riott went after Jax and locked in a standing front face lock so Liv Morgan could hit a bulldog off the top rope.
Baszler nailed Morgan with a knee, then locked in a Coquina Clutch on Riott.
Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke ignored the brand separation and ran in to help, and Rose hit Baszler with a knee and Brooke hit a somersault neckbreaker of Riott.
Rose and Brooke hit a double flapjack on Baszler.
Natalya and Tamina stake their claim
Rose then hit Jax with a knee and Brooke landed a somersaulting dropkick.
Naomi and Lana then ran in as the Riott Squad dropped Rose and Brooke. Naomi and Lana hit kicks on the Riott Squad and threw them to the floor.
Naomi hit Baszler with a kick and Lana hit a crossbody off the top rope on Baszler.
Naomi used the ropes to springboard into a crossbody on Jaz.
They then took out Rose and Brooke with simultaneous face plants
Tamina nailed Naomi with a superkick and held up Lana for Natalya to hit the Hart Attack finisher on her.
Tamina and Natalya stood victorious over all and Jax and Baszler were on the ramp.
Carmella watched from backstage and accepted Billie Kay’s resume.
This was just… not sure we can put it into words. Another potentially awesome match was set aside to get more faces on television and show the interest in the Women’s tag titles.
Maybe if we got to see more than one or two a week there’d be more interest? WWE Smackdown Results still say the women deserve their own brand. What do you think?
