Tonight on SummerSlam, a new SmackDown Women’s Champion was crowned in Natalya.

Natalya laid claim to the title after forcing Naomi to tap out to the SharpShooter.

Towards the end of the back and forth match, Naomi attempted to trap Natalya in the A Bad Place Submission but Natalya reversed this into a Sharpshooter in the middle of the ring.

Naomi fought through and was able to break free after crawling to a corner and tossing Natalya to the bottom turnbuckle. From there, Naomi climbed the top rope for a split legged moonsault but Natalya was able to counter by getting her knees up.

From there, Natalya applied a second Sharpshooter and this time successfully forced Naomi to tap out.

Cameras caught Carmella backstage watching the match, teasing the idea of her cashing in her MITB briefcase but in the end, she did not.

This marks Natalya’s first title win in six years.
