Tonight on SmackDown Live, the SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi takes on Ms. Money in the Bank Carmella following last week’s tag team contest.

Read WWE.com’s preview to tonight’s match below:

“SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi continued to assert her dominance over the division last week, forcing Carmella to submit in tag team action. Though she’s preparing to defend her title against Natalya at SummerSlam, Naomi will have to deal with Ms. Money in the Bank this week on SmackDown LIVE, as Carmella demanded a one-on-one battle. Will Naomi put in a repeat performance of last week, or can Carmella weaken the champion and put herself closer to a potential cash-in?”

Lana has also issued a challenge to Charlotte Flair and will take her on tongiht’s show.

Read WWE.com’s preview below:

“Despite her best intentions, Lana cost her and Tamina a tag team match with Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. The Ravishing Russian vowed to make it up to Tamina, announcing her intention to challenge Charlotte. Lana’s wish has been granted, as she will take on The Queen on SmackDown LIVE. Will she be able to best the genetically superior Superstar, or will Charlotte make quick work of The Ravishing Russian?”

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

  • So have y’all peeped Sienna & Charlotte’s twitter beef?

  • DayOneISH!

    Since we’re talking about Smackdown I find Daniel Bryan an unlikeable Gm.He comes off as angry and bitter most of the time and I’m glad miz called his ass out.

    • Malcolm James

      I think he miss competing in the ring

    • Kvngbalor

      He came off unlikable to me on TD also he’s very saracastic in a snarky way

  • Okay it needs to be like this.. Trish is backstage and Nattie goes on about how she’s so much better, Trish starts cackling. Naomi shows up. Trish said Naomi backs it up every night, that’s why she’s the womens champion. While Nattie is all bark, and no substance. Naomi says some corny shit and Nattie tries to jump but gets backed into a corner by Trish. Security seperates everyone.

    • Typical Heel

      And then we get Nattie vs Trish on Smack down?

  • yess Usos bop of a theme

  • Not Sami losing to a damn tag team.. #SamiZayn4WWEChamp

  • Danny?

    I don’t get how people can still enjoy the new day, they been doing the same shit for years now and tbqh I’ve never liked them. Usos all the way.

    • theyre splitting every tag team but the new day. i know they are selling merch, but so did enzo and cass, and they still split them. they ain’t fresh anymore.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        Kofi, Big E, and Xavier would be doing jack shit by themselves.

        • like every team that has ever split

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            kind of

  • Hopefully this weeks two SDL womens matches are better than Raw womens matches

  • DayOneISH!

    Usos vs New Day at Summerslam is gonna be lit!!!

  • Hugo Banks

    All I need is a storyline to care about the Smackdown Women’s Championship match, at least a promo or segment.

  • DayOneISH!

    I completely forgot Lana and Charlotte face off tonight

  • DayOneISH!

    Orton has been dry and stale for over a decade.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    rock those peacocks queen

  • yes the queen!

  • albert albie aldahawi

    Natalya needs to get some momentum please ?????? Also I hope the rest of the girls get something on the side at summerslam.

  • DayOneISH!

    I’m hoping these little segments with Tyler and fandango leads to something good like a former tag team returning.

    • ThePeaceVibe.

      That’s my hope as well

  • she’s so extra lmao raw has these girls desperate

    • Mark?

      Sis is still dreaming I see

  • Michelle

    Wow

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    lol the match of wardrobe malfunctions

  • that was a fun match

  • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

    Queen Charlotte.

    Also, can someone tell me what happened there? Lana tug on Charlottes tights or what? I heard the crowd reaction but like didn’t know what happened. Should Charlotte be mad about it?

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      i think lana nearly pulled charlottes tights down. then when charlotte did the backslide lana’s top came down a little.

      • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

        It was good they were laughing about it!

  • albert albie aldahawi

    For the time given it was fun to watch :)

  • DayOneISH!

    I wonder if Lana still has a chance to be in WWE 2k18 at least as DLC.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      She probably will be DLC I bet

    • Typical Heel

      Lana is Rusev’s manager of course she’ll be in the game

  • Super Mateo

    I think the Charlotte/Lana match was just supposed to be a comedy match, and comedy and laughs is something the women’s divisions is sorely missing. It was a mildly entertaining throwaway match.

  • Alicia Fox’s Weave

    OFF TOPIC: who do you think will top this years’ PWI Top 50 Women’s wrestlers?

    • Alexa or Asuka

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        I think Asuka. She has broken legendary records.

      • Alicia Fox’s Weave

        Hmm, between those, I think Asuka has the best chance. But Alexa is definitely in the top 10, perhaps top 5

        • Alexa is def gonna be second if Asuka is first. Naomi gonna be first 5 as well.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Naomi or Alexa as number two or three.

        • Call Up Asuka NOW

          Asuka and Alexa is top 2 I would honestly go Alexa then Asuka

      • Malcolm James

        HAHA to Alexa that be a slap in face to women wrestling

        • ThePeaceVibe.

          TBh though didn’t Eva Marie make the list last year?

          • Malcolm James

            Did she

          • ThePeaceVibe.

            I just checked and she was number 50 but erm.. still lol

        • The list is based on what they accomplished, not talent wise.

          • Malcolm James

            Exactly women’s in the Indies accomplished more then her

          • Nope

          • Malcolm James

            Do you watch the Indies scene

          • I do and no one has done as much as she did this year.

        • Call Up Asuka NOW

          Don’t hate cuz she’s accomplished a lot and is over and selling merch and in majority opinion the best female on mic

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Asuka

    • A?.

      Asuka

    • Call Up Asuka NOW

      Alexa

    • Typical Heel

      Asuka

  • Ian Willbeian Archer

    Where Is Naomi !!!!!! My Girls She is the Best

    • A?.

      She has a match with Carmella.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    I have a feeling Nattie will be costing Naomi her match against Carmella.

  • A?.

    Ellsworth’s suspension is up, I wonder if he will return (Let’s hope not..)

    • Typical Heel

      Why did he get suspended?

  • Kiana Taylor
  • Danny?

    YAS TAMINA GET THAT OPPORTUNITY!!!

  • Kiana Taylor

    Tamina slays on the mic when she can

  • oo yes Taqueena im here for a Nao vs Tamina feud

  • LOL at Carmella getting ZERO crowd reaction.

  • Danny?

    Poor Carmella still getting crickets

    • Malcolm James

      Can you blame the fans

      • Danny?

        Nah she’s not that engaging or memorable a character

  • Shan

    I adore Naomi because every now and again, when you least expect it, she busts out a new move.

  • albert albie aldahawi

    I’m guessing we’ll get a roster reveal soon it usually happen during summerslam. I feel like the roster won’t be as big as last year for the women and I only use the women fml. New additions? Lana? Mickie and Beth? Far out we might lose Paige,summer and Eva . Also Brie but didn’t really use her lol

    • albert albie aldahawi

      Off topic I know lol but I get excited for the roster reveal to see everyone who makes it and their gear.

      • saul de la efe

        i know! is actually one of the most exciting parts of the year for me along wm and NXT Brooklyn

        • albert albie aldahawi

          Haha same ??

    • The reveals are starting this Thursday I heard

      • albert albie aldahawi

        Oh I hope so

      • Kev

        Can’t wait

    • DayOneISH!

      I still see Brie being in the Game.Shes still on total divas and has that doll coming out so she’s definitely gonna be in.

      • albert albie aldahawi

        Yea there’s a possibility I guess

    • Hopefully Beth’s showcase gives us multiple women.

      • DayOneISH!

        She’ll probably have either Candice Michelle or Kelly Kelly as her opponent.

        • saul de la efe

          or probably mickie.. who knows
          wish they could add a melina vs mickie vs beth judgement day match

          • Typical Heel

            I want a Melina vs Beth I Quit Match

          • saul de la efe

            imagine thaaaat i have a crazy “women 2k showcase wish list” and beth vs melina is definitely on it along mickie vs trish wm22, kaitlyn vs aj at payback, lita vs chyna, etc, etc, etc. <3

          • Okay!! a match, I liked their match on NYE 2007

        • albert albie aldahawi

          Don’t play me like that my fav all time is CANDICE QUEEN I’m keeping my hopes lower then my standards lol well prob just get Mickie vs Beth knowing WWE games and their push for women. …

    • Kev

      They said the roster is the biggest yet so I don’t see them cutting anyone. I so hope for Candice in the Beth showcase. Will we get Jacquelyn and Ivory again because they were in the last game?

      • ThePeaceVibe.

        I really hope they leave Jacqueline and Ivory in. A lot of people didn’t like that they left Alundra in last year, but I hope they leave her in as well. It has annoyed me though that they didn’t put her belt in with her.

        • Kev

          I hope so too. I’ve enjoyed having Trish, Lita, Ivory and Jacquelyn matches. I wish they would even add some other alumni girls like Torrie, Victoria, Jazz and Sable.

  • Kiana Taylor

    Lol what da hell is going on with this crowd tonight i don’t know if i should enjoy them or be pissed

    • Robann

      They were disrespectful as hell last night to the point where I literally just turned it off after a while. So it’s no surprise they were horrible again smh

  • DayOneISH!

    Oooo I like this Naomi attire even more!

    • Same! I’m glad Naomi kept the “Team B.A.D.” pattern for her ring gear. It fits her body the best.

      • Robann

        Sandra did her team BAD gear and she did the gear she wore last night, that’s probably why it looks similar.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      idk about this one

  • Shan

    Every time Carmella grabs Naomi’s braids I’m ready to throw hands.

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    I hear people on Twitter say “this is a bad crowd for booing Bayley and cheering Lana pulling Charlotte tights down” but those same people brag about Emma being over in this crowd so does somebody care to explain?

  • Kiana Taylor

    Omg that fucking troll

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    James ellsworth just hurt a woman

  • ThePeaceVibe.

    I don’t like those Naomi kicks anyway, but Carmella has to be the worst at selling them..lol

  • Danny?

    The match was fun but where is Nattie at? She should be involved with Naomi

  • Nattie should’ve dragged Naomi post match mess

  • Tbh, I know this is a reach, but I was hoping for a side feud between Becky and Ellsworth after MITB.

    • Hugo Banks

      Me too

    • Typical Heel

      They need a match on PPV

    • I was too secretly

  • Hoooshi

    So no progress between Nattie and Naomi? Flop.

  • DayOneISH!

    REALLY? So nattie is just backstage watching the match that’s how you build this feud up? What is this 2012?

  • Kiana Taylor

    Where was nattie?? A promo could’ve worked, an attack or something

  • Ian Willbeian Archer

    That Bitch Elfworth Needs To Go To NXT And Stay This Match Was Shit !!!

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    it should have been nattie not ellsworth

  • Hoooshi

    I can’t wait to see what sort of mental gymnastics people will do to say this booking is so much better than Raw, how Raw could never, etc.

    • they can’t, took them a real injury to actually use other women, and by use, give them a match on Raw. tragic.

  • They probably didn’t want to use Nattie cause Canadian fans would cheer her but it makes no sense, this feud needs some steam.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Off topic but I don’t think Ember should beat Asuka

    • Hugo Banks

      Why?
      Asuka needs to be in the Main Roster as soon as possible. RAW needs her.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        I dont think it’s the right move for Asuka.. She already beat her.

        • Hugo Banks

          But Asuka needs to drop the title, her reign has become boring and it’s been hurting the NXT women’s division.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            It’s the writers on NXT her reign has actually helped build the title tremendously

      • perceval

        Asuka won’t get a fair shake on the main roster, because Kevin Dunn. Considering how much he hates the Horsewomen, he’ll really have it in for Asuka.

        • Hugo Banks

          I don’t think Kevin Dunn hates the Horsewomen because he knows that they are the top girls and are SO OVER with the crowd, without say they sell a LOT OF MERCHADISE.

          • perceval

            Well, let’s see… Had Bayley buried, won’t let Becky have mic time because he hates accents (leaving her to having to resort to the tea thing and going back and forth with Cyborg on Twitter to get attention), thinks women should just be sex objects, tried every week to kill the Trish vs Mickie feud no matter how popular it was with the fans (The more over it got, the more he tried to sabotage it)…

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Kevin Dunn can’t hate Charlotte. So I don’t get what that commenter is saying.

          • Hugo Banks

            No, he can’t because Charlotte is a Vince girl, he’s behind her.

          • perceval

            He hated Trish Stratus, so how’s he gonna like Charlotte? Here’s a former head writer telling us exactly how the division wound up the bathroom break in the first place…

            https://www.cagesideseats.com/2014/7/1/5857390/hi-my-name-is-kevin-dunn#243156405

            Case in point, one of the big rubs on KD: he’s a misogynist influence on the product. I can tell you this is absolutely true and I learned it almost from jump street. One of the long term stories I’m most proud of from my time at WWE was being the principal producer on the Trish Stratus/Mickie James “Single White Female” story. There’s no humble in the brag when I say we grabbed the audience by the throat by a couple weeks into the angle and our quarter-hour ratings bore that out.

            The first time we were given a crossover segment because the story was getting over, KD fought it tooth and nail. He fought us every week. Show was heavy? KD wanted to cut Trish/Mickie. “Temple of Trish” segment? KD argued that we needed more action and people would get bored. Lesbian kiss? “Trish has gotta like it!” Every single element, he wanted both protagonist and villain to be sexier and stupider.

            Perhaps the following scene will be more instructive. You are on the WWE corporate jet. Imagine every rock star plane in any movie: four captain’s chairs facing each other in the front. Behind them, two benches facing each other across the aisle on which are crammed the writers. The captains? Vince, KD, Michael Hayes, HHH (Steph was on maternity leave, of Hayes would have been on the bench). We’re flying back from TV after taping one of the early WWECW shows. Kelly Kelly has just been introduced as the domestic [violence] partner of Mike Knox.

            Hayes: She just feels cold, you know? She’s not connecting. Vince: Mm. She needs to find her sensuality.

            KD hops up and down in seat with sniggering laughter in that “Hey, boss, pay attention to me” way. Vince turns to him.

            KD: She NEEEEDS to find some TITS!

            KD continues to snicker, eyes on Vince, begging for approval. Vince snorts. Conversation continues.

            This kind of thing? The tendency to present women as only softcore objects? Those conversations came every single day, and KD was the WORST about pissing on any serious woman’s program.

          • Hugo Banks

            I totally agree with you.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            I know. I’m saying idk what that Perceval guy is saying.

    • I kinda feel as though if she does, Nia will win at Summerslam. Only because I think they’ll bring Asuka up to beat Nia after she squashes a few people during her reign. And besides, waiting for someone like Kairi would take far too long. Asuka’s title reign has been cute for what it was, but it’s time for her to take her L.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        Nia will not be champion after SummerSlam.

    • Typical Heel

      They haven’t built anyone up for Asuka, I feel she should debut at Summerslam during the raw match, and relinquish her title, so they can do a tournament, and crown Ember then

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    Off topic but Alexa Bliss turns 26 tomorrow so be sure to wish the goddess and your Raw women’s champ a happy birthday tomorrow on Twitter , Instagram or in any other way

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      maybe

    • E-Force

      I wish her all the ring ability in the world bc that’s what she lacks

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        Wrong but Whatever makes you sleep

    • Typical Heel

      No thanks, I’ll also wish her some wrestling skills

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        Wrong but whatever makes you sleep at night

    • Gavin

      I won’t.

  • Ian Willbeian Archer

    Nattie Gets A Promo

  • SD doesn’t disappoint I knew they;d feature Nattie

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Nattie looks dressed to wrestle

  • Kiana Taylor

    Lol “nobdey is retday for asuka!!” that will always be funny to me

    • Danny?

      Asuka a Queen of Comedy

  • Hoooshi

    So I saw Asuka was added to Smackdown live event in Osaka in September, I wonder if this means she will go to SD or she will defeat Ember and remain on NXT forever.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Well I mean Osaka is in Japan so it’s probably just because it’s her home country.

  • Ian Willbeian Archer

    SD Always Finds Away To Use All The Women In Someway Or The Other Im Happy #RawSucks

  • DayOneISH!

    That promo was lame.

  • Danny?

    Can Carmella cash in and lose please cause that’d be great

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Carmella needs to not do superkicks

    • Danny?

      Especially with Tamina on the same roster cause her’s are iconic

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        if thats one move she does well it’s her superkick

  • I’m just hoping Carmella can cash in on the RAW Women’s title match. Because (I can’t believe I’m saying this) at this point, a cash in on the RAW title match would save it since they’re pushing Alexa vs Nia.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    I loved Victoria’s superkick it was so unique and powerful as hell looking

    • Shan

      Victoria was a unicorn.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        I’d love if she returned and we’d get more iconic matches with her and Mickie.

        • Shan

          I like to believe Victoria is smart enough to know not to return unless she specifcally wants to put over the other women. Because Creative would decimate her at this point.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Yep. She basically left because she was tired of it.

          • ThePeaceVibe.

            I don’t think it was long ago she tried to visit backstage at a show and they snubbed her/wouldn’t let her. At least I read that as a rumor on some wrestling site. I wondered if it was due to her picture/video leaks. Anyway you’re right they wouldn’t use her correctly. Actually I just searched and this was the first suggestion… http://www.prowrestlingsheet.com/victoria-denied-backstage-wwe/#.WYpqeFGGM2w

          • She actually said it herself. She was in the audience for the MITB main event for SmackDown!, but they wouldn’t let her backstage to say hi to the girls.

          • Miriam

            why not? :o

        • A?.

          Imagine Victoria back, she would be jobbing to Sasha, Bayley and Nia. No thanks!

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Mickie hasn’t really been jobbing it’s the fact that she’s rarely used or pushed. If you think about it her only consecutive losses where she’s been pinned consistently have been to Becky and Alexa. Nia has only pinned her once in that gauntlet but ended up losing the match anyway she didn’t pin her last night but technically Nia did beat her but Mickie didn’t look weak.

          • Her & Nattie was jobbing to the Bellas, I was so over it.

          • ThePeaceVibe.

            That was so frustrating for me to watch since Victoria was (at the time) and always will be one of my favorites.

          • A vet. A legend. Too disrespectful

    • Yes!

  • Kiana Taylor

    Sorry but carmella’s superkicks isn’t good enough for enough for a secondary finisher https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d3fa281d850f0d9ff4e6b3d69f75b277ccdc29eadf2447710893aeec4872baab.gif
    This would be better in my opinion

    • DayOneISH!
      • Shan

        Wth? Did she slam her into her boobs?

        • Typical Heel

          ??????????

        • You forget, she had faulty implants, we know how hard they can get.

        • Summer_Slay #GiveSummerAChance

          Eva was so inovative in the ring. SMH the 4 horse women can only wish to have as unique signature offence as this.

          • Shan

            Lol

      • Geo14

        WTF IS THIS?

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        Eva looking like she’s about to break her ankle. This looks dangerous for herself.

        • She looks like someone popped her in the face and the way down grabbed Liv. Side note, what happened to her?

          • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

            She left to become a failed actress

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Do you mean what happened to Eva or Liv?

          • Liv. I know Eva left

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Apparently Mandy Rose is going to start wrestling on NXT regularly I’m assuming Liv will be showcased more as well. But idk good question.

      • Kiana Taylor

        All slip boob smash everything

        What df is this? ?????????????A titty takedown? I’m Happy asf I’ve never seen that match

        • MK126

          LMFAO you weren’t missing much with this match. Shockingly Liv (who was billed as an “outside talent”) looked better than Eva. She actually won the match with this which is sad. At least Liv tried to make this move look like something

        • tstumo

          lol didn’t miss much, I loved how Liv looked and even preferred her older name “Marley”

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      even if she did like a chick kick or something since she’s always trying to do Trish’s moves

    • Gavin

      Sis, no. Carmella would not be able to make that move look as good.

  • DivaLicious?

    This Naomi & nattie feud has ZERO steam or any kind of Hype. They should have let nattie interfere instead of Ellsworth. I’m just not looking forward to this match at all. Nattie is just another stepping stone for a longer Naomi title reign that’s all. This is why we ain’t getting anything special out of this feud.

    #JustTheTruth

    • You stay mad..

      • DivaLicious?

        I’m not starting with Naomi mob today. ?????

        • So just because I’m black, you believe I’m apart of a mob?

          • DivaLicious?

            Well, it’s because everytime I mention Naomi. I get them coming at me saying “BLACK LIVES MATTER” it’s just gets ridiculous.

          • Shan

            Now I’m gonna stop you there. You realise you went 0-100 real quick right? When has anyone ever said Black Lives Matter in defense of Naomi?

          • DivaLicious?

            Trust me. There is is lot. Everytime somebody says something about either her wrestling ability or promo skills. They screams “she worked her ass off” etc… “she been treated unfairly”/ “black lives matter” on twitter in WWE handle mentions.

          • Seraphina Rosenhart

            Naomi has worked her ass off and people aren’t appreciating her talent enough. They say that she’s not worthy of being champ, but the truth is that she’s more qualified than the majority of the women on the roster.

          • Mark?

            I agree DivaLicious. I remember being called racist for exposing Naomi as a bad wrestler who always botches. LOL.

          • Now you gotta shut up. You know damn well no one goes around saying that here as it has no correlation to whatever is happening in WWE. Don’t mock social issues as a way to justify your hate for womens wrestlers.

          • Shan

            They were doing fine up until that comment. Went completely off the rails there.

          • This is why we can’t have anything nice.

          • Typical Heel

            This! ??????????

          • Robann

            Oop.

          • DayOneISH!
          • C Mack

            Stfu. You just set yourself up for any negative backlash you get. How dare you compare ppl standing up for Naomi to a national campaign to stop the unjust killing of hundreds of black men and women.

          • DayOneISH!
          • Organization XIII

            DRAG HIM

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            Not only is your comment ignorant but I have never seen anything DD that referred to Naomi and a serious issue in America known as Black Lives Matter.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      I think Carmella might be cashing in.

      • DivaLicious?

        Let’s hope so. I hope Carmella is working on a stronger move-set too. Because she needs it. Her move-set is kinda weak looking.

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          she’ll have ellsworth to get her cheap victories

          • DivaLicious?

            Yeah.. you can say that. But I would like her to get more powerful in her move-set though.

        • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

          Did you watch during the break? Because she actually did some good stuff. I’m not the biggest Carmella fan. Also, because she isn’t one of the best in the ring. She does stall a lot with taunts, but I gotta give it to her because during the break she was good

    • Hugo Banks

      Agree with DivaLicious

    • perceval

      Yeah, one person has gotten a big push in SD’s women’s division. Unfortunately, it’s Ellsworth.

  • Stop trying with Orton. He ain’t ever gonna happen.

  • BIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTCCCCCCCHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! Did SmackDown! just end like that??

    • Shan

      LOOK! I was ready for the Rusev beatdown and it went black.

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Lol Carmella beat Naomi ?

  • For fuck’s sake Tamina, either get a bigger jacket or take that son of a bitch off.

  • Gavin

    Pretty basic matches. Charlotte vs Lana was boring, and Carmella vs Naomi wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t anything fresh. Nattie looked cute, and her segment with Carmella and James was funny. The Tamina/Lana storyline is interesting, but I hope it doesn’t become a Tamina/AJ or Tamina/Naomi type of thing. Overall, it was decent and better than Raw.

  • ???

    For the first-time ever l say this ..
    RAW WAS BETTER THAN SD THIS WEEK

    oh smackdown, what happen with your iconic rivalries? Nattie vs Naomi looks like a kickoff match now

    • ThePeaceVibe.

      It really does. We have no reason to care about it, and do to the horrible non-existent buildup we can pretty much assume the outcome. Meh…

  • FlawlessMickie ?

    SD was much better than Raw this week. Raw can use all the women they want that don’t mean they know HOW to use them.

    • Monkey Tennis

      Nope. RAW’s problem is that it doesn’t use all of its roster enough. Smackdown’s problem is that it doesn’t use its roster properly. You’ve got a title feud with no build at all, and that’s only Naomi’s second feud with her first being with a woman who shouldn’t have been in the ring in the first place (and still shouldn’t be). You’ve got Nattie as a practically anonymous challenger who’s about as effective a heel as a her own cat. And you’ve got the money in the bank winner who is essentially playing James Ellsworth’s sidekick, because he’s the one getting all the focus. In the meantime, Charlotte’s just marking time and Becky’s lucky if she can even get on TV.

      Yes, RAW was dull, predictable and underused their women’s division yet again this week with only 8 total minutes of ringtime – for two matches! But Smackdown really wasn’t any better at all.

  • Almarpar

    WWE needs to get these wrestlers on set acting coaches… christ almighty that nattie interaction with Carmella was so bad. The Tamina and Lana bit too… really not looking fwd to Summerslam. Naomi is a boring ass champ with a boring ass challenger. It’s not thier fault its the awful writing/booking. Why isnt Charlotte & Becky on the card as a side fued with someone? The best performers on SD. Well hopefully Sasha v Alexa will be set, they’ll have a good match and maybe Carmella will cash in..

    Lana serving Rosa omg.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    The build-up for Naomi and Nattie is as inexistent as the one for the Raw women’s title for SummerSlam yet the challenger has yet to be determined. It’s really bad. Nattie is such a non-factor in this situation and that’s a shame. This match feels irrelevant.

  • Miguel

    Lana’s story on SD is the most captivating in some time. People are rooting for her because she’s wanting to be better while keeping her heel persona. I’m really into the story and now she’s playing a factor on Tamina’s chase to the belt. In the other hand, SD! keeps letting Naomi down, not because she lost the match (she’s been dominant in recent weeks) but because they failed to give Naomi a personal feud. Carmella is the most close they have but the focus is way more on Ellsworth and Carmella’s relationship and actually having something personal with Naomi (which makes sense because she’s just chasing the belt with her MITB briefcase) but Natalya was a good opportunity to turn it personal.

    • MK126

      People were rooting for her cause she pulled down Charlotte’s tights when she went for the roll up… not cause of her wrestling lol

      • Miguel

        Nobody root for her because of her wrestling but because of the story behind.

        • MK126

          But nobody was rooting for her at all… just last week she was getting boo’d and got “you cant wrestle” chants.

          • Miguel

            This week she was getting “let’s go Lana chants.” Talk about picking and choosing… LOL!

          • Organization XIII

            Who chanted that this week? I only heard “Thank you Lana” after she pantsed Charlotte

          • ThePeaceVibe.

            LoL they were just wondering if her lower half was as lopsided as her upper half.

          • MK126

            Exactly! Charlotte was getting cheers just from chopping Lana in the chest. NO one was cheering for Lana

          • Organization XIII

            lol She got a little pop during her entrance but that was it lol

          • MK126

            But she always gets pops even when she was with Rusev. That’s nothing new… but “lets go lana” after getting “you cant wrestle” LOL not happening

          • Organization XIII

            lol Honestly & truly

          • Miguel

            I guess I miss-understood, watched that on TV. I have to re-watch. LOL!

          • MK126

            Sure lets talk about picking and choosing since you chose to hear the wrong chants by the fans LOL “THANK YOU LANA” was for her attempted rollup on Charlotte and pulled her tights down on the way down to the mat… hence why Charlotte looked directly into the main cam and WOOOO’d and smiled and pulled up her tights. You’re the ONLY one who heard “THANK YOU LANA” so pick and choose something else to hear

          • Miguel

            I actually heard “Let’s go Lana” chants but I could be wrong. I can re-watch.

  • MK126

    FINALLY! SOME LAMINA DEVELOPMENT! Now we know what their relationship is geared towards and I can definitely see Tamina and Naomi having a really personal feud. It writes itself pretty much. Char vs Lana was what it was. A fun throw away match to make Char look dominant and bring notice to her eventual return to the title hunt. Mella vs Naomi was good until Elsworth showed up. I know his suspension is up but that was the perfect time to have Nattie interfere in the match instead of her watching the match backstage. There’s nothing going into this story. They started off good with Nattie being the “old school I bring honor to wrestling” and Naomi being the “this is the new age of wrestling and I deserve to be champion” but it dropped as soon as it started. Not surprising that Mella got total crickets during her entrance. Elsworth was her heat magnet and the heat didn’t transfer which is what everyone was saying when she first won the briefcase. SDL definitely did her dirty by not making her a center point of the title hunt

  • Raleex2

    Carmella vs Naomi was a bad idea, if they were trying to hype Carmella’s possibility to cash in the MITB contract on Summer Slam they should’ve used a more opportunistic approach. Carmella defeating Naomi on a singles match with the help of Ellesworth makes her a legitimate contender and reduces the wow factor the audience can feel if she ever cashes in the contract and actually wins the title.

    About Charlotte vs Lana. Nobody can deny that Lana is hilarious! The comedic role is working even when she’s losing every single match, Lana isn’t supposed to be championship material yet so I like that she’s trying to prove herself in a funny way. I bet she’ll will turn out just fine.

    • Lushluke

      She should of pinned her last night then cashed it in and pinned her again. That would of shook things up

      • Raleex2

        Well… yeah maybe to hype Summer Slam, but again is just a SmackDown episode, they can’t really do that if there isn’t anything else around the title or Naomi personally, the stakes of it will fall flat.

  • conan_kun

    Naomi and Natalya are on title picture with Carmella lurking around, while top talents Charlotte and Becky taking backseat during Summerslam season, now Charlotte is just used to deal with Lana and Tamina. With Ellsworth is back, Becky may continue her beef with Carmellsworth until possible NXT women like Asuka, Nikki Cross or Iconic Duo moves to SDL after Summerslam. By the way, I heard 2nd Shakeup takes place within the first couple of weeks of September, hope Becky won’t move to Raw since I have no confidence for Raw booking babyfaces after how Raw did to Bayley.
