Tonight at Money in the Bank, Naomi defends the SmackDown Women’s Title against Lana. Can Lana capture the gold in singles match debut? The Diva Dirt team weighs in.

Abir: Lana is a passable opponent. There’s no way Naomi overcame 5 other women in 6 minutes at Mania, won the title twice, and had that stellar match with Charlotte a few weeks back just to lose it to someone who has yet to have a televised match. Naomi will win and retain.

Alex: If Asuka is the ‘shock’ for the night, then Naomi should retain the title tonight. Even the shock value isn’t enough to warrant a title win or someone who isn’t ready. What an absolute slap to the face to the other five women busting their asses in amazing matches since the ‘Superstar Shake-Up’ if she won. Booking wise, it might make sense… but would still not be a smart decision, so WWE please remember this is 2017 and not 1997 and save the title for our wrestlers please!

Candace: Naomi retains.

Josue: I think the WWE are taking a risk by throwing Lana right into a title match this soon into her singles competition career. I’m going to give Lana the benefit of the doubt. Who knows, she may surprise us all but truthfully I don’t high expectations for this match. Regardless, I see Naomi retaining either way, staying ready for whoever wins the Money in the Bank Ladder match.

Matthew: Naomi over Lana, because two reasons. One being that Naomi is getting a bigger push than most people on the roster (Unless it’s Jinder Mahal) and second being that Lana doesn’t have that much experience.

Stephanie: This is Lana’s chance to prove herself in the ring. Naomi has been shining and stepping up her game as champion so Lana’s first match is in good hands. I expect Naomi to retain in a fine match.

BREAKDOWN: 0 for Lana, 6 for Naomi.
