As stated last week by Daniel Bryan, a Money In The Bank Ladder match took place. The match included Carmella, Becky Lynch, Natalya, Tamina and Charlotte Flair. James Ellsworth was not present as Bryan had banned him from the arena earlier in the night.

In tonight’s contest, Carmella won the Money In The Bank contract, and became the unified Miss Money In The Bank. Now, whenever she wants, the Princess of Staten Island can cash in her contract to have a match against the SmackDown Women’s champion.

Despite being banned, Ellsworth ran into the ring and climbed the ladder. However, Lynch pushed over the ladder and knocked James out.

As Becky climbed the ladder, Carmella hit her already weak leg with a steal chair. This then allowed Carmella to climb the ladder and retrieve the briefcase.

Last week, we saw the Princess of Staten Island Carmella being forced to forfeit her contract due to the fact that James Ellsworth took the briefcase down at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view two weeks ago.

Daniel Bryan decided that to make the match fair, all five women deserved a rematch. Carmella insisted that as there are no rules in the contest, that she did not technically cheat to win. She also stated that the likes of Seth Rollins and Sheamus had non-participating men help them to win their match, yet both were able to keep their briefcases and cash in when they wanted. Bryan refused to use this as an excuse as despite her words being true, the winning men were the ones to take down the briefcase themselves.

Naomi also retained her championship earlier, so she could easily have the contract cashed in on her at any moment within the next year.

What did you think of the match? Did the right woman win? Let us know your views in the comments below!

  • Wicked Bliss

    Yesss its time to change her ring attire please. I hope theres bo more controversy this time.

  • A?.

    Yess! Queen, well deserved.

  • Kira_cx

    YAAASSSSS I love it!

  • Bryskers

    They outdid themselves with this one. Better than the first ladder match. And Carmella climbed and picked that briefcase on her own this time: that’s all I really wanted. She was never my first pick but having her win the rematch was the way to go.

    Great job!

  • Robann

    Thank. GOD. and I’m so happy they didn’t do the Ellsworth shit again.

  • Bri-Mode

    I still think that the initial win was great because it gave Carmella nuclear heat and a feud with a scorned Becky while the other girls feud for the title awhile.

    I get the whole no-chin grabbing the case for Carmella is a slap to the face of this revolution but to be honest, winning it legitimately for the second time now is pouring water on the heat that carmella got before.

    Well I guess as long as carmella is still receiving a reaction, objective achieved(?)

    As far as to who deserve it more, I’ll leave that to you guys to fight in the comments haha

    Quite frankly I would be happy for any one of them to win, I just don’t see the point of the rematch.

    • Kira_cx

      Yeah, I kind of felt doing the ladder match again was pointless because if Carmella was going to win again they should have just stuck with the original plan.

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Do you have a wwe twitter?

        • Kira_cx

          Lol No, why?

  • Rodney Holston

    Just glad they gave it to Carmella in the rematch. Other than Nattie, she was my pick to win.

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    Carmella is a two time MITB winner and only took two matches for her to do it. Is she the first back to back MITB winner? Can we talk about her making history already?

    However, Carmella winning made this match more stupid.

    • Hoooshi

      Woman? Yes. Overall I think Punk won back to back, but I could be wrong.

      • Luigi Junior

        Yes punk did it first

    • Carmella winning made the only sense here.

    • Maddox

      No she is not, Punk did it first

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        Ok, then she’s the quickest to do it. I knew I was wrong (just didn’t remembered who actually had that record)

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      Quite stupid yeah I agree.

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        Couldn’t they stick with the original match and the heat she got from it?

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Exactly. It’s pointless and made the first match pointless as well if it’s to do the same thing. She didn’t get more heat this week and won’t because she won fairly (even tho Ellsworth tried to interfere). That they have done a mistake at MITB is one thing but at least stick to it. Carmella did good following it and honestly, would have done just fine.

          • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

            That heat she got after winning MITB was what she needed, now the reactions are mixed since she won fair.

        • They couldn’t because this was the plan all along.

          • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

            So the original plan was to make Carmella a two time MITB match winner?

          • To get her more heat and boost SD ratings!

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Punk won it back to back. I guess Carmella is the second in history to do so which is amazing. So happy for her.

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        She’s the first women in history and earned that recognition faster than anyone.

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          She did something none of the men can do. I love it.

  • Super Mateo

    I can’t believe no one thought of using the steel chair until the end :p

    It was a good match. I just wish they made more use of the ladders. It seemed like they weren’t used as weapons much and I don’t recall anyone doing any stunts from the top. On the positive, I did like the ending with Natalya and Charlotte so wrapped up in their own issues that they lost sight of what was happening in the ring, Becky finally getting some revenge on James, and Carmella intelligently taking things up a notch with a steel chair.

  • Peta

    No matter what people say. They made the right decision here to give it to Carmella. She needed it most and it made her have even more reaction – regardless if its positive or negative, she still had REACTIONS which she rarely had before.

    Now, can I just applaud the writers of SDLive because they know how to build up characters. They did it well with Alexa before and now they are doing it with Carmella.

    I’m thinking for a side feud hopefully they do a “Generation feud” where Tamina, Natty and Charlotte will feud on who’s really the best for this generation.

    Then Becky & Ellsworth. Sorry, but they have chemistry so that would be a good feud to be honest! :))

    As for Lana…. I still think the writers are testing the waters whether she will be face or heel. Hopefully, a Summer return happens and that’s where they feud.

    Carmella challenging Naomi will be interesting and could be another Becky-Alexa like feud but with more wrestling/character grit! :)

  • BlossomingNarcissist

    Hopefully she doesn’t cash in too soon, this could help her gimmick a lot. Be that cocky heel, and maybe by this win will she dismiss Ellsworth

    • I need her to hold it for a while kinda like Edge did

  • conan_kun

    hey carried Carmella well. Now they should move to single feuds, like Charlotte/Natalya, Becky/Carmella and Naomi/Tamina.

  • L.S #PushBillieKay

    If they aren’t going to let the women do ladder spots then they shouldn’t be in a ladder match

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5d7284c015d7b41bb82d7ac90024cde7ce8c4111e9a67905237642ae0ab6c8af.jpg

    • Tunasha

      For real, the match wasn’t bad but you kinda expect a spotfest in this gimmick matches. It felt like the tables match between Becky and Alexa. They were totally held back :/

    • Jo9834

      Exactly what I was thinking, the WWE is trolling us by giving us these ‘historic’ matches with little to no substance in terms of action. If the WWE did not trust these girls to pull off any spots, they had no business being in a ladder match to begin with.

    • I dead said I wanted them to use the ladder more like omg

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      Maybe the girls didn’t planned any spots using the ladder. None of the girls really used their signature or finisher with the ladder. They didn’t broke one ladder.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      They looked legit scared of the ladders. But TBH, Women’s bodies can’t take the same amount of wear and tear that the men go through. They are on the road the same amount the men are and I don’t think Smackdown can afford to injure any of their women right now, because there are only 7 active. They had to play it safe. We’re also lucky to see 2 Ladder matches in 2 weeks. I would just be happy you even got a MITB, and suck it up. The women did good. Let’s just be happy for them.

  • Hoooshi

    I expected more ladder spots than the first. Yes, they can fall from a ladder, but I want to see people being suplexed on the ladder, most of their spots were on the mat.

    Anyway, the match was still good, Tamina was the MVP and the right woman won, I’m happy with the outcome.

    • MK126

      Every time someone did a suplex (side eyes to becky) I was like “ON THE LADDER DAMN IT!” Those powerbombs? ON THE LADDER! Every time they fell from the ladder? LAND ON ANOTHER LADDER! lol like damn do something exciting. Tamina doing her superfly splash onto becky would have been hot… if it was on a ladder… and Becky rolled out of the way

  • AMAZING MAIN EVENT! Tamina was the star once again.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      She literally wasn’t. Carmella was, keep seething.

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          what

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          Boris when were u Nene?

      • Peter Marin

        What exactly did Carnella do the whole match? Tamina went out there and took all the bumps, clearly you can see how sweaty and beat up Tamina was towards the middle and the end of the match, whereas Carmela looks like she went though half of what Tamina went through. Carmela barely took any bumps, I am a big fan of both but Tamina was clearly the MVP once again. I am so proud of Tamina, she’s been dishing it out in the ring ever since she came back ??

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          Tamina is big and old. That’s why she was so beat up. Okay, Tamina did take those bumps, but dear, she was not the star. Stop trying to take it away from Carmella. Carmella won, she’s the star, she did more that made me go “wow”. Tamina did her thing, but this is CARMELLA’S MOMENT. Carmella was the star, boo.

        • John Finnie

          That spear was pretty damn good she needs to use that as a signature move it loojed pretty brutal & she hit it great

  • James Shellie

    My perfect set up for the next feuds:

    Nao v. Charlotte-Charlotte can claim that her original title match was thrown out because of welcoming committee and Nao being the fighting champ will oblige. At least gets us through Battleground and possibly a killer SummerSlam match

    Becky v. Carmella-Easy to build off of based on the matches. Becky is furious and can promos between her and Carmellsworth would be great. Carmella is in no rush to get into the title picture with the contract now anyway. Let it be a slow burn

    Tamina v. Nattie- Kinda leftovers here but they’ve put on great matches with each other from like 5 years back.

    Overall I think team blue has some good feuds that if built properly could get us through a decent summer

    • Judging from the finish, they might continue Nattie vs Char part 24504. I could see Tamina getting a filler title shot at BG and then Charlotte winning at SummerSlam. But your predictions are spot on!

      • James Shellie

        I could also see them adding Tamina to that Nattie/Char feud with the whole Snuka legacy…I guess it just leaves Nao without much to do and I think they need to keep building her up.

        The Lana squash definitely helped legitimize her as a decent champ but she needs that one feud or match to really cement her reign

        • That’s what I thought too, a triple threat generation feud. But like you said, leaves Naomi with no one left, unless they somehow magically continue this Lana feud. We’ll see!

      • John Finnie

        I can see tamina getting a jillian hall title win then Carmella cashes in & wind

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Yes yes yes. Congrats Mella

  • Kat Love

    The right woman won!

    WWE what’s the point of having these type of women stipulation matches if the women are scared or told not to do certain things first the HIAC match that fell flat and like a no DQ match in a cage and now 2 money in the bank matches with no big spots or exciting moment’s

  • Jose Antonio Atienza Lat

    So can we expect somewhere down the road for a TLC match for the SDL ladies?? or even a hardcore match between Carmella and Becky when Carmella wins the title??

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      TLC is for Raw this year I think.

  • Mark?

    Queenmella wins. Thank God. But I would have much preferred to keep the original finish and let her rub it in people’s faces.

  • Princess snatched that case, 2x 2x 2x https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bdf66734a85dd3c05d9902e79c3189b86910860c2fd458a15a67b93c76ca9a06.gif
    Wish they did more ladder spots though, I see Char & Nattie having a side feud while Tamina should attack Naomi & make herself #1 contender.

  • Winter

    Be honest, Sasha vs Nia was better that this MITB match.

  • Raekon

    Honestly, this is how it should had played out in the first match.
    She would had been legimitely the first woman to win the case in the first womens ladder match in the wwe instead of having a man stealing it and handing it to her as if she wouldn’t had been able to do it herself.
    The match was very good. less attacks with the ladder happen than in the first match but at least they didn’t went with a copy/paste Version of the first match but rather mixed things up.
    Tamina MVP once again! :)

  • Maddox

    So which of the two ladder matches were better? I thought being the only ladder match tonight, they would do lots of spots and all

  • Davis

    I am satisfied with this match. I knew who was going to win but I love it, and they are all amazing.

  • Jesus’s brother

    Terrible ladder match, perfect winner!

    The match was so repetitive, 1 places ladder and climbs, another one climbs it too and then a third person pushes the ladder… There was no cool spots! Disappointed!

  • Great Carmella win again! and looking fantastic as the perfect opportunistic heel women.

  • Wicked Bliss

    I hope she cashes in at Wrestlemania!!! That would be fabulous!!

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Was I the only one EXTREMELY confused at Natalya and Charlotte getting to the outside in the end of the match? In a match full of other women where any other women can climb the ladder and win the match, how can you fight very far from the actual ring? Made them look stupid.

    • MK126

      And then Charlotte cried when the match was over like she wasnt anywhere near the ring

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        For real…

        • MK126

          That made no sense at all lol

    • Don ?

      I thought is was silly for Natalya to do that as well. I’m guessing it’s foreshadowing another Natalya-Charlotte feud.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Yeah, it was so stupid and even beginning a feud over that is freaking stupid.

  • Aye Mate

    Smackdown hit the home run they should have at the last PPV. The match was laid out and executed beautifully, with all the women performing well. (Honourable mentions for Becky: like Sasha, she’s almost always mesmerising anytime she’s onscreen. And Tamina, who did a great job playing the battering ram.) Carmella winning was the right way to go and given that the briefcase elevates her profile, I’d hold off on having her cash it in until the writers do a better job padding out Carmella’s credibility as a challenger and Naomi’s title reign with maybe one or two more heated rivalries.

    The title match was more of the same from MITB: Lana was once again serviceable but didn’t do much differently other than heel it up a bit, then do an awkward display of tears backstage in reaction to her loss. I really, really like Naomi as a champion and feel it would be a disservice to her hard work and steady popularity were she to just suddenly drop the belt. A brief but nonetheless defining battle with Charlotte or Natalya, with Naomi going over in a well done singles match on PPV, would be welcome before the next champion is ushered in.

    Meanwhile Carmella can sustain her new profile by feuding with Becky Lynch over the MITB travesty, keeping her in the spotlight but out of the title loop for now.

  • John Finnie

    So how was the match folks?? Have not seen it yet will get to it after work’ i have heard alpt of people saying it was good in fact one site gave all 5 woman a 5* for that match
    I also heard baby mama Tamina was AGAIN the MVP
    The outcome is OK at least James never got the briefcase

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      The match was fine I guess but still, when it comes to a ladder match, it lacked ladder spots, extreme spots or just more memorable spots in general. It was better and longer than the first one and it was entertaining to say the least but honestly, this was still a watered down MITB ladder match.

      • John Finnie

        Hopefully wwe was playing it safe to see how the girls would cope the first few times & the top brass should be proud of all 5 women’
        Hell i seen a good friend of Mickie & Natalyas who’s a writer about wwe he gave all 5 woman a 5* for the match. Thats a first
        Hope the next few MITB matches get more use of the ladder add a few new formats etc

  • Mitch Petrone

    if anyone other than carmella won the match it wouldn’t feel right. Glad she won hope she still gets a reaction, and it’s not just Ellsworth helping her get it

            i see” SMACKDOWN” i see people talking about alexa too but you wanna act like your a divadirt police agent and come for naomi because you don’t like her , don’t comment please if your going to post dumb shitt thankyouuu nexttt

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Seethe bitch. Glad it’s making you nervous that Carmella is Ms. MITB, and she’ll be a future SD women’s champion. And Naomi old ass can take herself to her concession stand.

          • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

            nervousss ?? no i wanted her to win , soo what are you trying right now ?

          • Robann

            Sis….Charlotte is older than Naomi. PLEASE don’t do this. Age don’t mean shit if you can still keep up with the younger ones, which they both still can. Stop it.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            hahaha I’m just being an ass.

        • Larissa

          She’s much better than Naomi. Lol

  • Danny?

    Glad Carmella won again and the match was good. I’ve accepted the fact that the girls still aren’t allowed to get too extreme so their ladder spots were going to be inventive and clever as opposed to hard hitting.

  • PhiPhiBanks

    Carmella winning is good for her. Keep her booking strong and she could be SD’s top heel. I would consider her the strongest female on the mic, she is clear, to the point and she shows emotion.

    The match itself wasn’t anything special. I got more enjoyment from the Gauntlet match. I feel either the women were holding back or management were holding them back, possibly both.

    Tamina was once again star of the match for me.

  • Callisthenes

    After watching the first MITB, I had already adjusted my expectations down and found this match to be action-packed and exciting if I am willing to force myself to not think so much because the in-ring psychology is really lacking here. The decisions made were dumb and I do not know none of them bother to point out because why did Natalya and Charlotte brawl so far away from the ring? Why would everyone not suplex or slam each other onto the ladder and instead opt for the blank mat spot next to the ladder? Why is there no utilisation of the ladder as a weapon? Why did Charlotte and Naomi push Becky forward and for her to land gently on the rope instead of pushing her backward and have her back snap against the ring rope? There was also this spot towards the end when Becky wanted to climb the ladder and Carmella was lying at the edge of the ring canvas and I was just wondering why would Becky not spend that 1 second to at least kick Carmella off the ring before she scale the ladder? These small things matter and they aggregate up to be significant in determining how the entertainment value of the match.

    Additionally, there were also a number of spots where you can see so clearly that one is just waiting for the other to punch her or push her and that also takes away a part of the realism to me and I would have really appreciated more realism especially in this type of match where ring psychology plays a bigger role than ever before.

    With all that being said, good ending as I agreed this is what and HOW it should have happened at the MITB but they fucked that up leading to major backlash and now has revert to another way for Carmella to win it. Lucky for us viewers (and Carmella) I guess!

    • This was the plan all along, they didn’t reverse anything

      • Callisthenes

        No one said they reversed anything. They just resorted to another way for Carmella to win it after the original method for her to win at MITB PPV received major backlash from the WWE universe.

        • Um… that was the whole point. The “backlash” didn’t play a part in Carmella winning again.

  • MK126

    I like how Charlotte had set up the spot where the ladder was supposed to be pinning Tamina down and then she rotated the ladder so Tamina was just freely laying under it. Like a true professional Tamina rotated with the ladder when the camera cut to Charlotte climbing LOL

  • Larissa

    Alexa Bliss- 3 stipulation matches. (won 3/3)
    NO SERIOUS BUMPS OR NOTICABLE SPOTS

    “Can Alexa take bumps? Blah blah can she do something in the ring?”

    Carmella- 3 stipulation matches. (won 2/3)
    NO SERIOUS BUMPS OR NOTICABLE SPOTS

    “Yasss Carmella did THAT blah blah”

    • Larissa

      Y’all so full of shit lol they’re literally in different boats, floating in the SAME water.

      • Robann

        The ONLY thing I agree with you on bih lol. They never should’ve done the rematch and had it pan out from the first one. But, this one was miles better because of everyone BUT Carmella. I am happy that they had her win this one too, though.

        • Larissa

          Yeah this match was a lot better tbh. The first was prob more hard hitting but this was way more intense and had more action imo.

  • So glad it wasn’t Charlotte I really thought she was going to be champ soon as she arrived but there using her well at the min

  • Jesus’s brother

    If Raw Women got a Ladder match it would be 100x better than this mess lool Becky and Charlotte can do so much better than this!

    • Sass.

      Yeah, they’ve got the stronger workers. Alicia Fox, Bayley, Emma, Nia Jax, Mickie James & Sasha Banks in a MITB ladder match for a shot at Alexa’s title would’ve been lit.

      I’ve heard WWE are planning on rotating the PPVs between brands, so Raw will have TLC this year which Smackdown had last etc. I think that’s a good plan – hopefully the women of Raw next year will get a MITB ladder match.

    • Raekon

      No it wouldn’t had because they would had to protect sasha from injuries like in the steel cage match, Emma that just came back from injury and some of the others too.
      All of the women on SD could do more hardcore stuff and some of them even have in the past (Nattie, Becky and Tamina), is just the wwe that wouldn’t let them.

      • Jesus’s brother

        Sasha was the one who took most of the bumps in the HELL IN A CELL match… Emma is not made of glass and what other do you refer? Mickie, Bayley, Fox, Nia and Dana never had big injuries LOOL

        • Raekon

          Vince changed the table spot to the mess we got to watch in the last second and was still furious afterwards because it didn’t looked as good for the ending as he thought it would. He did it because he thought sasha will get injured if they go for the original table spot they wanted to do and also didn’t trust sasha to carry the title so he made her lose and Charlotte keeping the title. That’s what I meant. I never said Emma is out of glass, I said that ALL of these women can take bigger bumps and most of them even have in the passt but the wwe won’t let them, that’s why the match didn’t had “bigger” and more dangerous spots in it.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Why do we have to compare Raw and SD. Did they get a ladder match??? No. So how tf do you know it would be better? You don’t so stfu.

      • Jesus’s brother

        Whoever liked this ladder match clearly don’t watch the men’s ladder matches… it was so underwhelming… no spots at all

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          You’re delusional as hell if you think Raw’s would be any better. And I will admit it had a slow start, but it got better as it went on, and there was spots go back and watch.

          • Jesus’s brother

            You clearly don’t know how a ladder match works… the spots in this match were boring and repetitive

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Your opinion and a delusional one at that. You’re just shook that Sasha was outperformed, yet again.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Outperformed? She is by far the best wrestler in the women division! She carried Charlotte to her best matches LOOOOOOL

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            She never carried Charlotte #fact

          • Jesus’s brother

            LOOOL, Charlotte in her first year struggled with every opponent except Sasha… in fact, Sasha gives everyone their best matches! Charlotte can’t do that

            Um Nattie by far brought Charlotte out of her shell and made her more confident in herself. That’s common knowledge. Sasha and Charlotte put on good matches together. But Sasha never carried her.

          • Jesus’s brother

            yes, Charlotte is great when she has someone to carry her… Some examples of her best matches were with NATALYA, SASHA, BAYLEY and BECKY who are great at carrying others…

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Natalya carried Charlotte only in their Takeover match, just because she brought the star out of Charlotte. None of the 4h carried Charlotte.

          • Jesus’s brother

            “None of the 4h carried Charlotte”
            You can see it when she doesn’t wrestle the 4h… the match quality decreases…

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Bihhh, Charlotte has had good matches with The Bellas, Naomi, Natalya,Paige (their matches were good just their feud was booked poorly), carried Nia to something watchable, her match against Dana wasn’t bad. I can’t really think of a Charlotte match that was bad. This argument is so old btw, go worship Overrated Banks.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Botch from Charlotte, what was she thinking?

            Here she failed to catch Sasha making her fall and almost causing a serious injury…

            Stuff like this proves that Charlotte needs more experience, she has half the years of wrestling Sasha has, so it’s normal. You have trouble accepting it and think that Charlotte is the best, when you were lead to believe by WWE that she was… She was given the spotlight way to soon. If anyone is overrated is Charlotte because Sasha got everything she deserves…

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            None of these were Charlotte’s fault. There is a risk Sasha is taking when she does these moves. Hence the name “high risk” it wasn’t like Charlotte dropped her on her head while performing a simple move like a suplex. These videos you showed don’t prove anything, and Sasha wasn’t seriously injured in any of these. So again I don’t see how Charlotte needs more experience? You sound really stupid and just reaching at this point. Just admit the fact you’re wrong instead of trying to pull out receipts that don’t even cater to your point. I actually remember that suicide dive in the second clip you showed. I was there live.

  • Can’tGetNo…Stratusfaction

    I think people are being incredibly shortsighted about this match. No, they weren’t clobbering each other with ladders and there were a few spots where more ladder interaction would have made sense; BUT this was a VERY GOOD match that showed how strategic, crafty, and desperate each woman was to win.The ladder was used very wisely, the live audience was INTO it, and everyone woman was spotlighted well.

    My only real negatives are:

    – The chair shot at the end could have looked more impactful — but that’s an argument that could be made for everything Carmella does in the ring.

    – There could have been more creative ways (suplex, powerbombs, etc.) to get the women off the ladder rather than tipping it each time.

    – Natalya, in general. She telegraphs what’s coming the entire match (her weird ladder climbing, for example) and her insistence upon using illogical/irrational moves (the sharpshooter, following Charlotte over the barrier and away from the ring) is annoying.

    Honestly, this should have been what we got at MITB with the last memory being Carmella doing something overtly underhanded and grabbing the case for herself and Ellsworth trying (but failing) to get involved

    • MK126

      Yeah I really didn’t understand anything Nattie did. Why did she stop after every step she took up the ladder and why did she decide to fight Charlotte in the stands and not go for the briefcase after she threw Charlotte over the barricade. The sharpshooter makes SOME sense cause shes trying to take out the persons legs so they cant climb the ladder but there are other ways to take out a persons leg… like pulling their leg out from under them and getting it stuck in the ladder

  • Joseph

    It was a way better match then the first one. Carmella needed it the most and with Smackdown being “The Land of Opportunity” they can easily put the SD Womens title on Nattie and Tamina whenever they want to.

    • Jesus’s brother

      Better? It was almost the same lool

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      It def aint going to Tamina. Girl gets nothing but crickets.

      • Robann

        Which Carmella got at one point too. Funny how one little thing changes everything…..

        • Larissa

          Okay sis go awf

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          Tamina is like 60 and has never improved

      • Joseph

        They put the WWE title on Jindar like nothing so they can put the SD Women’s title on Tamina.

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          They won’t

  • SweeneyTodd

    Except Carmella everyone looks weak + Daniel Bryan who looks like the biggest jerk with Ellsworth again in the Match.

  • Shan

    I think every single woman got her chance to shine and shine they did. I was legit wondering who would win in this match. Tamina though, Tamina showed out. She is built for this. I wanted to give her a standing ovation. Girl TOOK those blows and nearly died from overheating in that outfit.

    I was confused as to what Nattie was doing going over that barrier. Was it to say she completely lost her mind with rage at Charlotte? Uh, ok. I guess.

    I was looking for some ladders breaking and stuff but considering that didn’t happen they did pretty well actually. For no crazy ladder spots (except that one where I thought Charlotte was gonna cave in Tamina’s windpipe) the match sure held my interest. I was legit tryna figure out what would happen next.

    Also, I don’t know what the problem with Daniel is. I think he’s doing what he’s suppose to. Actually, I’m just waiting for him to flat out tell Ellsworth he’s doing something just because he doesn’t like him. I don’t see anything wrong with how he’s treating Carmella because A) he’s actually very respectful in his interactions with her and B) she’s getting a great amount of heat from the goings on.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Carmella impressed me so much in this match. Definitely was the star after she did that crossbody off the ladder, then getting real hardcore and using the chair on Becky. So happy for her, I have no doubt she will be a future women’s champion. You deserve it! ??

    • Larissa

      She did nothing.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        No yes she did

        • Larissa

          A cross body.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            A dangerous roll in the announcer table. (jk) but I like what she had to offer to the match. Also bringing in a steel chair.

  • Jesus’s brother

    – someone climbs the ladder
    – another one climbs the ladder
    – other pushes the ladder away making the two at the top fall
    – repeat

    This was the sequence for both mitb matches!

    • KatyaMenelli

      Not the first one, the second one yes.

  • Mandy

    Naomi v/s Lana was a complete waste of time, it was a squash match that did nothing for either Lana or Naomi. Lana could have won by DQ or something. It was just a disappointing match especially considering it was for the title

    As for the MITB match, I loved it! Each one of those woman put forward their best and in the end the right woman won. This is how things should have played out the first time yes Ellsworth interfered but in the end it was Carmella who played it smart. I loved when Carmella took the chair and hit Becky which paved the way for Carmella to climb and get the case. I look forward to when she cashes in.

    • Lushluke

      HOW DID BLEACHER REPORT GIVE NAO LANA GRADE A. they so biased with smackdown

    • Neteru_Lily

      So we’re going to pretend that Naomi keeps repeatedly saying she’s a fighting champ and ready for whoever is not a coincidence? Or the heated exchanges she had with Booker T questioning her toughness in the pre-show at MITB as just a fluke? Nah. Naomi being caught by surprise and have Lana lay some wood on her at MITB was a wake up call for her not to take any opponent for granted. Someone like Lana should’ve never been a contender so the SD match did what Naomi should’ve done before. Squashed her! This whole feud was about building Naomi… Lana’s whole existence right now is proving how she’ll improve in the next year since she’s so green. Nobody will take her seriously and she’ll be jobbing to the whole roster until she get that surprise win. That’s going to be her role for a while.

  • Wicked Emma

    Meh…. Everybody new Carmella was going to win.

      • Super Mateo

        Be nice! First, Izzy posted on Twitter that she still is and always will be a Bayley fan. It IS possible for someone to be a fan of more than one person. Second, she has the right to like whomever she wants. People change their opinions all the time.

        • KatyaMenelli

          Haha but why do that in the midst of what’s going on right now? Haha she’s young, but I’m pretty sure she would know what people will think with her posting that.

    • Robann

  • Lushluke

    HOW did Bleacher report give Naomi Lana a grade A they are so biased to smackdown

  • Victoria&Melina19

    It was an alright match, I think this match is better than the first one, but was expecting more ladder spots, but maybe that’s just me since I have always enjoyed matches like this and tlc.
    Glad Carmella still won otherwise it would not have made sense.
