As a result of last week’s Superstar Shake-Up, Charlotte Flair and a returning Tamina have joined WWE’s blue brand SmackDown and WWE.com have given the following preview to tonight’s show:

During last week’s Superstar Shake-up, two Superstars altered the complexion of SmackDown LIVE’s women’s division. Second-generation heavy-hitter Tamina and five-time former Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair stunned the WWE Universe with their shocking arrival.

But it’s time to get down to business in the wake of the Shake-up, and there’s no doubt that the newcomers will have their eyes on Naomi and the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Who will be next to try and dethrone the titleholder?

Tune in to SmackDown tonight at 8pm ET on USA Network.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Charlotte is about to beat her oop

      • Mike

        I see Charlotte winning night then Naomi winning next week then Naomi retaining

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          Yeah I’m not sure.

          • Mike

            Naomi too over right now to lose this quick and they can’t rush a Charlotte reign just yet because the only other face is Becky so they not gonna rush this yet. Charlotte gonna win at Summerslam….. but I’m still pulling for Nattie

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Yeah I’m not sure if she’s gonna win it right away. I think Naomi should reign for a little but I think Charlotte will be taking it from her eventually.

          • Mike

            Yea me too I’m here for another Charlotte reign just because it’s on SDLIve

  • Protecting her throne!

    • Mike

      She was straight throwing hands lol you can tell Naomi used to get it in back in the day ???

  • Monkey Meat

    Better opponent to Charlotte than Sasha and Bayley ever were.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Not Sasha or Becky maybe Bayley

    • Mike

      This the most intense we have seen Charlotte in a minute

  • So Naomi loses the championship next week?

    • Mike

      Don’t think so I don’t see her dropping till Summerslam unless they hot potato between her and Charlotte… which may not be bad IF it’s kinda unpredictable where Naomi actually wins at a PPV unlike Sasha

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      Not happening! Natalya, Carmella, and Tamina are definitely screwing Charlotte out of that opportunity later tonight.

  • king valor

    Naomi lifted up that title and the crowd did what….they CHEERED. She showed up to confront Charlotte….they CHEERED. it’s almost like shez over??? Also, I like Charlotte as a Queen looking for her throne.

    • Naomi has been over for a long time. The haters still say she isn’t but it’s obvious now that she is the face of SmackDown’s womens division.

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      I actually like she came out demanding a title shot. I was hoping she would be denied but after the nattie/mella/Mina segment i will be happy if they cost her the match leading to a f4w match next week for the number one contendership where 1 of the 3 heels remaining, after Charlotte turns face, wins the title shot. Like nattie or even Tamina.

  • Carmella is so good, and Nattie has come a long way as far as talking goes too.

  • king valor

    not miss nattie staging a coupe to kick Charlotte’s ass tonight.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Carmella vs Tamina would be cute

  • Are they going to team up against Charlotte?

    • king valor

      Charlotte’s getting jumped tonight. I think Fatal Four Way next week for the contendership. Possible face turn too?

      • Mike

        Charlotte as a face vs heel Becky would be LIFE

        • king valor

          All I know is that the heel lockeroom is coming for Charlotte’s wig tonight.

  • Mike

    So… Nattie is gonna be the 2nd top heel on SD?? Yaaasss and Naomi main eventing with Charlotte?? Yaasssss SDLive already beating Raw

  • Ryan Sprague

    Are all the sad live women feature in the number one contenders match

  • Dolph Ziggler’s tan is the ugliest thing I’ve seen so far on SmackDown.

    • MeddlingDiva

      Blame Dana for that lol

    • Jaded

      Don’t ! Dolph and Seth in a steamy threesome is my ultimate fantasy.

      • Dolph is ugly now. He peaked years ago. About 20 better looking guys on the roster.

  • Lily #CIMSISABESTSELLER

    Charlotte legendary heel she was so over tonight

  • MeddlingDiva
    • Mike

      It was a heel thing she might come out to make the save on Charlotte later

      • MeddlingDiva

        I guess

  • SAMI THE FACE OF SMACKDOWN! GOAT.

  • Jaded

    Charlotte should stay faraway from the title for now, why do I just have the feeling she will bury the whole division.How can she be on the title scene barely a week on smackdown

    • NH

      Omgg I totally agree…. I love Charlotte but Nattie should be getting the opportunity before Charlotte… hope Naomi isn’t dropping that belt anytime soon :(

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      nobody really wants natalya

  • Asa Loves You

    lol

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Damn smackdown has already given 5 women more time than raw gave 7 women last night and we still haven’t even had the match yet. The women opened the show with two awesome back to back segments. Charlotte and Naomi opening the show was awesome both women killed that opportunity to open the show and the crowd was very into it. Then when we all think Charlotte is going to take over right off the bat we get a surprisingly awesome backstage segment with nattie, Carmella, and Tamina who are obviously going to screw up Charlotte’s opportunity to be number one contender later tonight keeping her out of the title scene for a time while she is turning face against the 3 heel team lead by Natalya.

    • king valor

      it looks like the faces of SD will be Naomi, Becky and Charlotte while Nattie leads the heels with Carmella and Tamina. That’d be nicely balanced. Plus it gives me the idea that nattie takes the title from naomi later on…setting up a possible feud with Charlotte and or Tamina.

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        That is seriously what I’m hoping for nattie big time deserves a title run and give Charlotte a really good heel opponent to take the title off of. Or maybe even Tamina or Carmella instead of Charlotte out the gate after they turn on nattie.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      how is that obvious?

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        Well I mean did you see the backstage segment? Natalya mentioned her plans. The stipulation is Charlotte has to win tonight to be the number one contender. Nattie is more than likely going to bring Carmella and Tamina together to make Charlotte lose. I mean it’s obviously not a guarantee that’s going to happen I’m just saying it is my prediction for the night.

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          That doesn’t mean they will for sure.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            Well I did say it wasn’t guaranteed they would it was just my prediction at the end there. But as we know now I was wrong and nattie and co have now let Charlotte in the title picture. So now if they interfere next week it means Charlotte loses dirty and will get a rematch so their interference will only serve to prolong Naomi’s title reign until Charlottes rematch.

  • I don’t really care about Naomi’s bandana attires no more. Her FTG phase of her career has led her to greater heights, and I don’t want to dwell on her heel character which was unsuccesul. She should keep her current lightening bolt look for good.

    • Jaded

      Was on a live show and asked for Naomi merch and it was sold out. Girl is making coin for WWE.

      • She’s really one of the top girls, and she did it all on her own.

  • Naomi’s character is kind of like Becky’s or for a better comparison, Lita. You can’t really expect them to wear whatever to look good. They have to stay true to their character. And this incarnation of Naomi’s calls for attires where the glow is more visible, and it really isn’t with skimpy ones.

  • conan_kun

    I know they will insert Charlotte into title match instantly. Naomi gonna lost tonight or even the title next week. What’s a waste for her momentum when she’s remain undefeated this year.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Btw diva-dirt thank you thank you thank you for bringing these raw/smackdown responses back!!!!!!!!

    • I missed you, girlie.

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        You too hun! These were my favorite thing about this site, getting to talk to all my friends live during the show.

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        Living for the Solange profile pic btw! #DontTouchMyHair

  • Luiz Giem

    So the heel women are going to sabotage the match between Naomi and Charlotte.
    Nice way to take Charlotte out of the title picture, as she goes for some revenge. I just hope they don’t turn her face.

    • They don’t necessarily have to feud with her. Just be like, “This isn’t RAW where you go around and reign over people. We fight back.”

      • Luiz Giem

        TBH it would be nice to see her feuding with Natalya or Tamina if that keeps her out of the title picture for a while.

  • Danny?

    Naomi and Charlotte opening the show and they absolutely killed it! And that backstage segement with Nattie, Carmella and Tamina must mean they are getting involved later on. It looks possible that they could cost Charlotte the match putting them into a feud with a turning Charlotte. Hopefully that means Becky can go against Naomi first.

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      A good face vs face filler fued would be pretty cool.

  • MeddlingDiva

    Not surprised if Tamina join another group

  • Monkey Meat

    Naomi is so over, and it would be a shame if she were to have the rug pulled from under her again.

  • SD iconic again, they don’t disappoint!

  • we could see this 4 way very soon
    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C9Zqbr4WsAApBwd.jpg

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Carmella’s dad a nobody compared to everyone else’s tbh lol

    • king valor

      a legacy fatal four way would be dope if played right. SDL seems to already be going in this direction.

  • #VindictiveBitch
  • conan_kun
  • As usual, Diva Dirt goes ahead and deletes the comments, instead of addressing the obvious blatant racism from @LAS1212:disqus.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b4613dd64c1e26992af25ea596d3ccf52f74d937b07aa36b53b035427339da2e.png

    So I guess the only reason people are fans of Naomi are because she’s black. Not because she’s talented? Or athletic? Popular? Relatable? Unique? Deserving? Naomi is a great wrestler, and has come leaps and bounds since she came to SmackDown LIVE in all areas. And I’d like to know why her skin complexion is the only reason, she has fans because several people of different backgrounds love her.

    • Monkey Meat

      I’m not even black. The racism is getting out of hand.

    • John Finnie

      I think the majority is with you on this (about Naomi being all those things)

      He fights for social justice whenever he can. Has been vocal about the injustices going on in the world, and is of Syrian descent. I’d like to know how he of all people is a redneck.

    It’s so good to see Tamina return to the same background as role with no damn lines -_-

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      thats her fault for not knowing how to talk.

  • I feel like they’re going to throw a curveball. Watch all these girls help Charlotte instead of turning on her.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Lana’s dancing videos are everything. SLAAY ME QUEEN!

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    omg hey

    Naomi looks like a jobber tbh, that title don’t look good on her.

    • Lol hick, you’re really obsessed, aren’t you?

  • Wicked Bliss

    Couple of minutes and already better than Raw

    • LaurenYorkStan

      Eh..

  • NAOMI IS SO OVER!

  • LaurenYorkStan

    Charlotte look like a big bulky ass man ugh

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Queen dominating.. yaaas

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Charlotte already doing more moves than Alexa in just one minute

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      sccccr alexa cute af though

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    athletic queens

  • LaurenYorkStan

    This match boring

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      it actually has chemistry though and tells a story. isn’t your typical Naomi spotfest.

      • Funny cause Charlotte relies on spots more than anybody else.

      • LaurenYorkStan

        No it’s boring dont see any chemistry

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          chemistry to you is probably doing flips every two seconds.

          • LaurenYorkStan

            So Charlotte moveset?

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Charlotte needs new attires though.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Charlotte needs to drop this resthold

    • Mandoceleb

      She needs to drop her whole shtick

  • Mandoceleb

    Charlotte is boring af! This match is boring. Naomi can’t show her atheleticsm because Charlotte doesn’t know how to work with her style. ?????

  • Charlotte is too slow to keep up with Naomi. Give us Paige and Alicia.

  • LaurenYorkStan

    Charlotte be doing the same ole shit with her no selling ass

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Charlotte sandbagging ass

  • She’s no selling all of Naomi’s offense.

  • CheerleaderMelissaFan

    Those kicks are absolutely awful. I don’t understand why Naomi uses them.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      ikr it’s such a jobbing ass move

      • Mandoceleb

        Especially when Charlotte doesn’t know how to sell moves

        • CheerleaderMelissaFan

          I have yet to see a person sell them well, to be fair.

          • Mandoceleb

            To be fair, at least they connect with her opponents body, Charlotte had her arms to the side and showed those moves had no offense

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          it looks ugly on everyone. it’s like how tf does that look painful. it’s only nice to see Naomi’s ass shake.

          • AllLashes

            It looked great on Sasha, Becky, Brie, Nattie, Paige, Fox etc. It’s a good move and you are mad your favorite didn’t come up with it.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            um i’m glad my fav doesn’t do ugly trash moves like that.

      • What even is a jobbing ass move? Face it, racist hater. Naomi is a top girl now, and runs the SD womens division. Far from a jobber.

    • Monkey Meat

      It’s one of the best moves in WWE. Always gets a reaction and are fast paced. Womens division’s answer to Cesaro’s swing.

      • Mandoceleb

        The crowd was legit dead for those moves here with Charlotte though

    • The crowd loves them, so whatever you got to say is quite frankly not relevant.

      • CheerleaderMelissaFan

        I didn’t imply that my comment was relevant. I’m confused by the hostility over my opinion on a move. If you like it, that’s fine.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        Crowd loves Alexa as well but it’s fine for y’all to hate so why ain’t whatever y’all say irrelevant

        • I love Alexa though.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            People in general on here not necessarily you

  • Monkey Meat

    Looked like Naomi hurt her knee again. Charlotte is so slow paced.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Naomi needs to learn pacing then.

      • Monkey Meat

        Are you dumb?

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          she only knows how to go full throttle. not all matches should be fast.

  • NH

    Honestly…this match has been sub par as of now :/
    It’s so sloww and I feel like it’s dragging… Naomi be looking like a jobber champ…

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Naomi’s shoe is broke

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      she wrestled with one eye a shoe gone isn’t going to hurt her

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        her glow is gone

    • Mandoceleb

      Hopefully they electrocute Charlotte and make her ass woke

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        it’s foreshadowing Naomi’s title run

        • Mandoceleb

          I don’t mind Naomi as champion but I feel like Natayla should have held the belt before her

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    CHARLOTTE VITCH WITH THAT KNEE THAT AKSANA KNEE

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Naomi looks lost a little

  • LaurenYorkStan

    Charlotte is so damn sloppy

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Charlotte or Naomi? Because Naomi was the one looking like she didn’t know what to do next and had to be carried by Charlotte.

      • LaurenYorkStan

        Please stop replying to me

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          stfu sylvia

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Yasss that was a nice ending. Naomi was exposed.

  • NH

    God….that was….something else that words just can’t describe …

  • Luiz Giem

    There you got it! Charlotte’s coming for that title sooner than expected.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Carmella Nattie and Tamina are probably gonna cost her the match. I don’t see her winning.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        probably will get DQ’d.

        • Luiz Giem

          Hopefully they will get involved next week. I was expecting something like that tonight.
          I see Charlotte as the next champion but they need to give Naomi a lengthy run.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Naomi is not a believable champion over Charlotte and this match proved that. Naomi got exposed and will most likely lose the title to Charlotte soon.

          • Luiz Giem

            That’s how it looked tonight, Naomi seemed to be all over the place. That’s why I wanted one or two filler feuds for Naomi before she faced Charlotte.

          • Dionte Brown

            Damn she wrestled the girl 1 time lol. Give them another match before completely writing it off.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            they’d had matches together before back in 2015.

          • Dionte Brown

            Girl it’s 2017 lol they haven’t wrestled a match together in damn near 2 years lol. If this were Sasha then we could complain. They have to feel each other out and work on it. I’m sure it will get better.

    • Mandoceleb

      YOU THOUGHT

      • Luiz Giem

        TBH I kinda expected the rest of the girls cost the match to Charlotte. I’m a little bit shocked.

        • Mandoceleb

          I’m sure they will, by the look of what we just saw, you know they gonna interfere and complain

          • Luiz Giem

            I hope they go full savage next week.

    • Don’t get your hopes up too high. Charlotte is great but Naomi can keep up. With the other girls targeting Charlotte I don’t think it’s going to happen just yet

      • Luiz Giem

        Honestly I want Naomi to have a lengthy reign for the prestige of the championship.

  • NH

    I mean where the heck was Nattie and her crew at? How you just gonna be watching on a TV screen Nattie….? Get involved gal!

  • Luiz Giem

    BTW, am I the only one thinking that Naomi looked hurt or tired during the match?

    • Mike

      She looked lost and confused

      • Luiz Giem

        Exactly, she was all over the place.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    I could see next week being a better match where they go all out

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Alexa moves to Raw = #1 contender
    Charlotte moves to SDL = #1 contender

    Totally didn’t see this coming at all…

  • Monkey Meat

    Very mediocre match. The ending was fine, but other than that their lack of chemistry was visible. A couple of non televised matches will do the trick. You could see how the girls weren’t used to each others bodies at all. Charlotte always struggles against girls that aren’t horsewomen or Nattie and Naomi needs someone who can keep up with her inside the ring. They need to meet a happy medium.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Charlotte wasn’t struggling. You could tell she was carrying the match. Naomi looked lost af when she did those punches and did that sloppy ass stunner she hasn’t done since 2014.

      • AllLashes

        Imagine being this damn delusional lol.

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          imagine being delusional as YOUR damn self..

    • John

      Naomi’s matches almost always seem like an exhibition of flashy moves and not a match.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        ikr like a dance routine full of stunts. whenever she’s done i’m just left thinking “was that even a match?”.

        • John

          Yeah, its why I just can’t get behind Naomi.

          • Dionte Brown

            You do realize that luchadores wrestle the exact same way. Even the cruiserweights wrestle the same way. She can obviously wrestle or she wouldn’t be there much less the champion. Have you actually seen an indie wrestling match the entire match consists of flips and tricks.

          • John

            I’m aware, I’m not a big fan of that style of wrestling.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    we’re gonna see Charlotte and that moonsault next week hopefully it’s the corkscrew one

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Well damn smackdown that was disappointing. The match was very very rough the chemistry was just non existent and then of course all nattie and co do is sit and watch the whole time like idiots. Damn smackdown started off so positive but now it is looking as bleak as raw. Bad week all around for the women of wwe for me.

  • Mandoceleb

    Smackdown needs new Divas ASAP before the division gets flatlined by Charlotte

  • I think they were saving a lot for the title match and we can expect other women to interfere next week.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Charlotte left them shook.

  • conan_kun

    See I know that, Charlotte ends Naomi’s momentum and this year undefeated streak, gets hot shot into title match and even wins the title next week by beating Naomi 2 weeks in a row.

  • Monkey Meat

    Charlotte was incredibly sloppy tonight. Guess it was unusual to work on a new show. We will see how it’s going to go next week. Hoping for the other three heels to involve themself and cost Charlotte the match. It was weird how there was no follow up with them.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Charlotte did nothing sloppy.. it was Naomi dear, there were moves Naomi did so sloppily, she looked lost because she actually had to wrestle and not do flips and stunts.

  • John Finnie

    I’m gonna take a guess and say this is our punishment for forcing Vince’s had about the lWm match

    I can’t see her winning though but I could be wrong

  • Mandoceleb

    Naomi is gonna be the Sasha Banks of the SDL Women’s Championship with those small ass reigns tbh

  • Wicked Bliss

    Guess we have a race who will become the first women to hold both new women championship belts.

    • Mandoceleb

      Well Charlottes match is next week and Alexa’s is at the end of the month so….

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      I see Alexa losing tbh, and I honestly don’t think Charlotte will definitely lose but i’m not sure if she’ll be champion by next week.

    • Luiz Giem

      Charlotte’s gonna win that race but I’m rooting for Alexa as usual.

      • Wicked Bliss

        Me too I hope Nattie etc cost Charlotte her match and turn face.

        • Luiz Giem

          Not sure if I want Nattie to turn face but I really need her and the rest of the girls to cost Charlotte the title.

  • CheerleaderMelissaFan

    The match wasn’t bad as much as it was a bit slow. However, Naomi didn’t look like a wrestler out there tonight. The difference between she and Charlotte were quite evident. Naomi IS athletic and she has some cool moves, but this match exposed her tonight.

    Hopefully with time these things come now that she is getting more time to actually wrestle.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Seriously if Charlotte comes to smackdown and buries the women of smackdown and wins that title from Naomi next week I will have literally given up all hope and just stop watching this bs product. I’m done wasting my time watching when I don’t care anymore and I can catch up by reading the reduxes instead of wasting 5 hours a week on this crap.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Sc I’m sure Nattie, Carmella and Tamina will interrupt and make Charlotte lose or win by DQ

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        Well I was sure they were going to do that tonight but no they just let her win and get put in the title picture so now when they interfere next week only to prolong Naomi’s reign a little longer without having Charlotte lose cleanly guaranteeing her another rematch.

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Nah, I think they’ll interfere and cause Naomi to get mad and help Charlotte because they interrupted a good match between the two and then that’ll lead to Becky coming out to make the save and a Charlotte face turn. Then we can get Charlotte and Becky vs Carmella and Tamina while Nattie vs Naomi happens.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            That is not happening did you see Naomi’s face after her loss? She was defeated as hell! There is no way she is helping Charlotte if nattie and co interfere. even if she does and Charlotte turns face like you say she is still getting a rematch because her title match was interupted.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            That no fear attitude she had at the top of the show was all gone after she lost.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            yes but you have to remember Naomi wanted this match on Talking Smack.. she may have had that attitude change after the match but at the end of the day she’s face and the other girls are heels so even though her and Charlotte might not be the best of friends, it’ll be heelish of her to not help Charlotte unless Charlotte like attacks her after the interruption

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Imagine coming for Naomi and her “spotfest” matches when you like Charlotte who’s known for her spotfest matches with Sasha on Raw ?????

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      please go back and watch their matches dear… there may be one spot when Charlotte does her moonsaults, but nothing else is spotty. They’re arguably the best women’s feud of all time.. What is Naomi? Just a title holder.

      • Kendall Anthony

        Lmao @ best feud of all time..Prob the most hyped annoying feud.

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    Alexa and Charlotte aren’t winning this month

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      I don’t think so either, definitely not Alexa though.

  • Izzy4lw

    For two of the most athletic women in WWE, I have to say I was disappointed. And not even about the blandness of the match; I think I was just expecting more from them and not considering that they’ve never worked together with this dynamic of Naomi as a face and charlotte as the heel.

    The fact that charlotte has been thrown into the title picture so quickly doesn’t exactly bode well for Naomi, but I’m hoping Nattie causes a distraction next week, because I love charlotte, but seeing her thrust into the title so quickly will only hurt the division as a whole much in the way charlotte hindered RAW while she was helming the ship.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      I’m sure they were saving the good stuff for the title match which is smart

      • Dionte Brown

        Maybe I was a bit disappointed in the match. I expect more from both of them. I will give them another match to prove me wrong.

      • Izzy4lw

        It wasn’t so much the content of the match as it was the awkwardness in the ring. Charlotte was struggling to sell Naomi’s offense and keep up with Nao, while Naomi was looking anxious moving so slow when charlotte was in control.

        Not a bad match at all, but this showcased that they’re not used to each other’s style, which did hamper the match. I’d almost prefer their title match was spaced three weeks out so they had time to find a happy medium in how they work.

  • Monkey Meat

    Is this the ugly freak hating on Naomi?

    Looks like it came out of a manhole cover.

  • AllWrestlingMatters

    They need to give Charlotte a fucking break before she gets seriously injured atleast a month off she’s always on the road working every live event and wrestles every week I’m sure her body is sore and tired

  • did they drop their gimmick

  • Mandoceleb

    YASSS QUEEN LANA!!! COMING FOR THAT SMACKDOWN WOMENS CHAMPIONSHIP

  • I’m ready for Lana

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Tht just shows how much of a stalker you are, probably the one who found out Dean and Renee got married.

  • Dionte Brown

    I was disappointed in the match. Naomi didn’t get a lot of offense in.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      She didn’t, but I felt like that was her not knowing how to have a slow match. Charlotte was controlling the match.

      • Naomi has had several great matches with girls who work a slower style such as Paige, Nattie and Sasha. You are so delusional lol.

      • Dionte Brown

        I think this is the first time I have agree with you lol. Naomi can slow down. She needs to find a good balance between the two. I will give them another shot because I know that they could tear the house down. I also think the match was supposed to be charlotte dominating so that she can be seen as a threat that’s one reason Naomi didn’t do a lot of offense.

  • Dionte Brown

    I also noticed how aggressive charlotte was we haven’t seen her like thIs in a minute.

  • Mike

    Match showed Naomi vs Charlotte has potential I just think Charlotte wasn’t prepared for Naomi body weight and Naomi gotta work on her pacing (which hasn’t always been an issue) working some house shows should do the trick for them here to see Naomi pull a moonsault on Charlotte and have Charlotte shook!

  • Luiz Giem

    Lanalina is coming… LOL!
    BTW, Smackdown needs babyfaces

  • CharlotteDoesItWithFlair

    Cut the girls some slack. It was the first time they worked each other in a proper match up. It took Bayley and Charlotte a couple of months to find that spark. Chemistry doesn’t come overnight unless you are Trish and Lita.

    • WOW HI!

    • Dionte Brown

      That’s what I’m saying.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Charlotte and Naomi have faced in one on one before back in 2015. I’m sure it’s happened on houseshows too. But yes, not recently.

      • He ain’t ask for your input.

        • Dionte Brown

          My Jesus let the man or woman have an opinion. I may not always like what they say or agree but damn let them breathe. You don’t have to attack them every time the comment something you don’t like. If they say something you don’t like pay it dust.

          • He called Naomi the N word. Idgaf about his feelings.

          • Dionte Brown

            Well if he did thats horrible and I will never be here for it. However he can still comment on the match that’s the point of the open forum. If you don’t like him block the user and you won’t have to see his posts

          • Oh no honey, I am anti racists and imma put them in their place whenever I can. I’m not going to be no neutral person who accepts hate.

          • Dionte Brown

            And I commend you for that but unless the person is spewing out racial rhetoric and dialog at that time it just looks like you are attacking people for the hell of it. I will gladly stand with you when it comes to injustice. I do think it would fare better if you just blocked him. That way you never have to see him post hateful things.

          • Izzy4lw

            You know I’ve been there with you in the discussion of POC in WWE in their racist attitudes toward their darker skinned athletes male and female, and as a Fairly woke individual and POC I try and challenge sexism, racism, transphobia, and homophobia where I can. I didn’t see this person call Naomi the N word though I did catch your screenshot which in itself was a prejudice remark. If they really did say the N word, I’m hoping you flagged them or blocked them. We are called to justice and to stand up when someone makes ignorant remarks, we just gotta remember that attacking back doesn’t change anything and weakens our own arguments. I’ll never say what you’re doing is wrong because you’re standing up when prejudice is being voiced, but we must make sure we’re being effective and solving the issue rather than getting caught in a cycle of endless shouting down one another. #wordsfromanoldPOC

    • Izzy4lw

      I think a lot of people (myself included) got caught up in the potential for a match that these two have as two extremely athletic women and forgot that chemistry takes some time. The match wasn’t bad by any means, but I feel I wasn’t able to enjoy it as much because I can see in my minds eye the caliber of match they will be capable of pulling off after they get used to one another from a pacing standpoint

  • Izzy4lw

    Also while we’re at it, tonight their in ring promo was great, but I noticed that while charlotte is AMAZING when she’s confronting someone, she gets thrown off when addressing the WWE universe- like she places emphasis on the wrong words. When she’s in there with someone else she sounds more natural and bitchy as a heel should, but when she’s alone she randomly will emphasize an unimportant word or a weird part of a sentence: I.E “where is mY TITle shot!?” Still a great promo by both, charlottes emphasis just got a bit weird there toward the end.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      I feel like Dana tries to sound like her too and does it way worse.

      • Izzy4lw

        Dana also has emphasis issues- it generally plagues a lot of people both male and female when they’re uncomfortable speaking alone, so it isn’t end of the world bad or anything- I just think charlotte is so used to having someone with her in the ring (Dana or Ric) that she gets nervous when she has to go it alone because it isn’t what she knows. Now that she’s on her own she’ll be able to break out of that soon- hopefully the same can be said of Dana now that she’s also flying solo.

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          she doesn’t sound nervous to me, I think it’s just how she memorizes her lines and how she flows her words together. it’s not easy to cut a promo. but at least she does a decent enough job.

  • C’mon guys! It was thier first match and ofcourse Smackdown always gives us life over raw! Yes the match between naomi and Charlotte was spoty but it’s only going to get better! I thought the match was great! I see naomi retaining though! C’mon feel the glow!!!!

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    This was not Charlotte and Naomi’s first match. Maybe their first match in two years but they have faced off in one televised match, I know in house shows at least once, and all those tag matches during the women’s revolution storyline. I’m not saying the match is bad, but they have definitely faced off before.

    • Dionte Brown

      I think we need to allow them to find their groove once that happens they will be fine.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      well those matches were years ago this is 2017

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        yeah, a little less than two years ago. but people seem to have forgotten that they have faced each other.

        • Organization XIII

          This is there first one on one match on live television unless you count the match that started one & one & turned into a tag match

  • MiguelAngl

    Wheres Becky Lynch?????

    • A?.

      Catering with Alicia.

    • Dionte Brown

      Seriously that question just popped in my head.

  • conan_kun

    Becky doesn’t even have a backstage segment, she’s fallen from first SD women champ to the most irrelevant woman on SD

    • A?.

      I believe that Carmella, Natalya and Tamina will get involved next week and Charlotte will turn face then Becky will make the save.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        Then the match turns into a 6 man tag. Carmella Nattie and Tamina vs Charlotte Naomi and Becky.. ugh I could see this happening.

        • A?.

          Most likely.

  • Mandoceleb

    Austin Aries is fineeeeeee!

  • CheerleaderMelissaFan

    Also, it’s already very unbelievable from a booking stand point that Naomi could beat Charlotte one-on-one. They should have had this match be a bit more competitive. Charlottes has been built as superwoman–she needs to be humbled if they expect people to believe that the Smackdown women have a chance.

    I don’t necessarily mean have her constantly lose, but they need to showcase that these other women have a fighting chance. (This excludes Becky, Nattie, and Nikki).

    Charlotte just got her shot like Alexa got hers last night. Both shows had good matches. I have nothing to complain about WWE this week. I want Naomi to retain still.
