With last week’s brawl still fresh on everyone’s minds, Charlotte Flair is out for revenge. Will she take down the Women’s champion, or will Natalya reign supreme with more dirty tactics? Let’s find out!

After a look back at the brawl and a recap of Hell in a Cell, we take to ringside for a six women tag team contest! Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Naomi are set to take on Natalya, Tamina and Lana – with Miss Money In The Bank Carmella on commentary.

The match starts off with Naomi and the champ. Natalya quickly takes down her fellow ‘Total Divas’ star, but after a stomp to Naomi’s back, the Queen of Black Harts gets a dropkick to the face. As Naomi gains control over the match, the champ retires to the outside, seeking help from her partners. Unfortunately for Neidhart and co. the former Women’s champion jumps on all of them, knocking them to the ground – though, Lana doesn’t get hit but kind of pretends she does.

We then see Becky Lynch tagged in to continue the domination. She soon tries to attack Natalya, but the champ is seen leaving to retreat to the outside yet again. Is this her only strategy? The cracks are beginning to show for the Queen of Black Harts…

When we get back from the break, Tamina seems to be dominating Naomi, allowing Lana to take over. After Becky is taken down, Charlotte chases after Lana but is soon stopped by the referee. The Ravishing Russian then takes Naomi to her corner to be held by Natalya as she gets a few stomps in.

Flair is then tagged in and completely takes over the match. As she sets Lana up for a Figure Eight however, Natalya attacks her, sending her head-first into the middle turnbuckle. Becky then inserts the Bex-plex on the champ, followed by a Superkick from Tamina. Naomi then performs a Springboard dive on Snuka, leaving them both of out the ring. Lana attempts a roll-up on Charlotte but this only leads to a 2-count, a Figure Eight, and the Ravishing Russian tapping out. Poor Lana!

After the victory, Natalya drags Flair out of the ring, tossing her into the side of the announcers table. She then gets ahold of a chair, aiming to hit Charlotte with it. Unfortunately for the champ, her enemy is one step ahead and boots her down before she can attack. This then leads to Flair chasing Natalya to the point where she runs over the barricade for protection. It seems that Neidhart isn’t quite as confident as she wants us to think she is…

Thoughts: So, for yet another consecutive week, RAW kicks SmackDown Live’s ass when it comes to the women’s division.

As per usual, we’re better off not watching the show this week because not only would you save yourself some time, but you still wouldn’t be behind on anything, story wise. Natalya tries to show that she’s the toughest in the division, whilst Charlotte takes her down a few pegs. So basically the same as last week, and pretty much every week prior to it.

It’s a shame that WWE doesn’t push a Becky and Carmella feud a little more, as last week proves that they belong in the ring together. They don’t exactly put on a 5 star classic, but they exemplify their chemistry well – but we aren’t given the opportunity to see that again this week.

Instead, we see a six women tag-team contest in which almost nothing happens. Instead of seeing a side feud form, we see six women perform the same six person match they’ve performed time and time again, with no hints at anything new. Exactly what we need after weeks of dull contests.

Something that needs to change with the SmackDown women’s division is the use of Lana. As much as she may be trying, she’s just not cutting it. When she’s fighting the likes of Charlotte and Naomi, it’s almost impossible to take it seriously. Is it really believable that someone that wrestles like a kid trying to grab their friends in a game of Freeze Tag can take down these former Women’s champions? Naomi and Charlotte are top tier talent, whereas Lana is at the bottom of the pile, and a simple suplex doesn’t even look believable here. If we needed to have a three-on-three contest, Carmella was very much available. And her work on commentary didn’t exactly do anything for anybody anyway. So adding her to the match would have made it suck a little less.

If there’s anything we can gain from this night though, it is proof that Naomi is a star. She isn’t given a lot to do, nor is she the most important member of the match. Yet she still has the best moments and inserts the sharpest of moves. Her jump to the outside is definitely the highlight, and her springboard dive on Tamina was so well done that even something as small as that steals the match (or maybe the bar is just this low). Naomi needs to be in a feud. She doesn’t need to touch the title just yet, but her talent is far too great to be wasted on six women tag matches. Give her a side feud whilst Charlotte and Natalya have at it. She deserves it and SmackDown needs it.

Overall, this episode is very much missable. A match we’ve seen many times before with almost no relevance attached to it isn’t what we need to see. So if you’re contemplating watching the segment, don’t waste your time.

What do you think of this match? Who do you think should feature in a side feud? Let us know your views in the comments below!

  • Joseph

    The Crowd is behind Charlotte as a face. They can’t really do a title match on the next PPV cause Survivor Series is the next PPV unless they are gonna have a special SD.

    • Aye Mate

      I agree. Charlotte’s come a long way since her disastrous first face run and doesn’t need to coast on being Daddy’s girl. Just let her be a straight up kickass type who’s just about getting it done in the ring.

      • Joseph

        Cause the main roster crowd didn’t know who she is back in 2015 now they know who she is and what she does best.

    • A?.

      Isn’t Taboo Tuesday rumored to be back? Maybe she’ll win it there or at the Starcade special, they’re having a Steel Cage and it’s in her hometown.

      • Joseph

        If Starcade is being film thats the big question.

    • Jaded

      They said Charlotte will be on the title scene till next year. I don’t think she is winning the title anytime soon.

  • Kvngbalor

    Lana needs to go back to managing Rusev Carmella needs to cash in SD needs a top heel i honestly think Nia should return on SD cause Paige isn’t going to get boo’d plus their going to use her return and push the movie so of course they wont use her as a heel

  • Aye Mate

    I feel so sad watching Becky and Naomi being treated like an afterthought when they each worked so hard getting over.

    I did feel that Lana was somewhat more fluid and transitioned well with her selling, though.

    • Jaded

      Becky’s hurt the most, she literally has been a non factor since losing her title to Charlotte 2.0

      • Aye Mate

        Yet she’s consistently popular and over despite her booking. It’s a shame WWE often overlooks what the audience wants to instead put over their favourites. Not a very fan-friendly company at all.

    • Moan of ‘Licia

      Naomi should’ve gotten some time off and Becky will benefit if she’s sent away from SDL.

    The best part about SD this week was Naomi and her outfit. Her entire look completely snatched me bald.

    • Aye Mate

      Naomi’s look saved me and cured world hunger.

    • Jaded

      She looked like a crispy doughnut, smoothed in milk and sugar.

      • Candice Queen

        scrrrr yes!!!!!

    • Yes! I hate pink but the style of it is so great

  • Rosanna

    Can we move forward where Carmella cashes in.

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      And loses

      • Joseph

        They aren’t gonna have her lose after they already had Corbin lose.

        • conan_kun

          Even she won the title soon, I’m still don’t see they let her enter Wrestlemania as SD women champ over Charlotte.

          • Joseph

            She has until June 18th 2018 to cash in, fans seem to forget that.

      • Rosanna

        Nope, that’s not the plan she’s going to have a success cash in on Nattie.

    • Jaded

      At this point, I don’t even know if I want her to cash in.
      She is deleterious to the division

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Lana just needs to get that face turn ASAP! It’s some women who wrestle better heel and some face. When Carmella was face her matches was ok but once she got that heel turn she started working in a different pace that’s better for her, same with Alexa Bliss. Look at Kelly Kelly and imagine her as a heel. She’s pretty much be like Lana. Say what you want about Kelly but it was easier for her to be the underdog face and do moves that made sense to her character.

    • ???

      Yes !! I also think Alexa and Carmella were way better as faces but as heels they’re damn basic !

      • conan_kun

        Alexa is better to do heel promo, what do you expect for Carmella as babyface when she’s also better in heel promo, go back to be Enzo Amore wannabe.

        • ???

          I meant in ring skills , but in terms of promo they are great as heels .

          Alexa is great in both baby face and heel , she’s very likable as a face and her moves were awesome and much better .

          Carmella on the other hand , as a face she can’t talk but her wrestling is ok and basic in wrestling and good in promos as a heel ..

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        Pretty much! Alexa was killing high flying and Carmella was good at being the underdog face.

        • ???

          I know right ? Alexa’s current wrestling type is killing her talent because she’s only good in high flying! I remember I was in high school and was completely behind her and said “She’s great , one day she’ll become the top baby face when she debut on the MR with her good high flying moves and fairy tale gimmick ”

          Too bad Alexa’s old gimmick is gone , it was awesome and cute and I think it suits her way more than her current heel persona plus she wrestled way better !

          Carmella is good as baby face because just like Alexa , her strongest point lies in the high flying wrestling type .. she’s annoying as a heel because she’s not good at any technical/submission/powerhouse types .

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            I think WWE just made them heel so they wouldn’t be like another Kelly Kelly and Eve on the roster, giving diva vibes. But in all honesty that’s what we need in the division as well. Why not have both like the old days?

          • ???

            The problem is that they already wrestle like divas more than before lol .. I think their moves were awesome and they had triple threat match with Nia Jax it was good!

            But for people who didn’t watch NXT and only saw their performing in the MR they’ll think they can’t wrestle and been gaven so much opportunities while the fact is Alexa isn’t exactly sucks at wrestling she’s just overrated and I have no problem of her being champion and I want her to be but just not this early !

            Many people trash the term “Divas” and TBH I have no problem if they were called Divas/ Women/Vixens or whatever and even if they still have the butterfly belt I have no problem either but what bothers me the most is that they weren’t gaven the time and attention !

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            This!!! Yes I love the term divas! I totally agree with you. Honestly we need divas in the division. That’s what make the women’s division feel more complete honestly. Everybody trying so hard to not come off that way but it is ok. Well Lana doesn’t care she still gives that. But we overlook her because she is a manager most of the time. But the division needs more Sable, Torrie Wilson, Stacy Keibler, Dawn Marie, Candice Michelle and Kelly Kelly types. They brought in money!! They don’t have to be doing bra and panties matches or pillow fights. And don’t need to have them resort back to not being showcased as much as the men. But gives us the girls who cat fight, have love storylines, hot interviewers who also got down in the ring and he’ll those bikini dvds. I never watched those dvds for the sex appeal and all that I just enjoyed seeing all the divas being pretty and the interviews. Hell even TNA gives that mix of good women’s actions, segments and still cater to the diva aspect of it all. WWE could kind of take notes on this.

          • ???

            Definitely! As a female the likes of Sable , Torrie Wilson, Kelly Kelly are the ones who made me love WWE , eye candy girls are appealing to both men and women .. without them you will not see me here at all and I wouldn’t even watch WWE !

            But as the same time I loved badass girls like Lita , Jacqueline and Ivory .

            As you mentioned the women’s division need to have alot of women types , that what made WWE so special in the golden era .. you have ladies who kick some ass , while others are “Divas” types .

            But just like you I definitely don’t want to see short matches to be back or disgusting bra and panties matches .. those kind of matches were the flaws of the golden era .

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            I use to wanna be more like a eye candy girl wit a mix of bad. Candice Michelle was my all time favorite. She was beautiful and the way she strut to the ring inspires my runway walk. When she improved in the ring and became champ she motivated me to work harder. It was divas like that always got me. I live for the Trish Stratus type. Models who work really hard a become the top in ring competitors.

          • ???

            Exactly! After all this is World Wrestling Entertainment so why not have both (Kick Ass girls/Divas) ?

            There are people who want to see these kind of women, and some who want long and good matches and for myself I want both !

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            Exactly! I still live by the phrase smart, sexy, powerful!!!

        • Joseph

          Wasn’t Alexa the underdog as a face?

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            Yea but I was always more in tune wit her high flying moves! I was hoping she’d end up being the female Rey Mysterio but I’m happy with where she is now.

          • Joseph

            I thought Alexa was a face back in 2014/early 2015 could have been a female version of Masato Yoshino. A high flyer that can run around the ring very fast.

  • Don ?

    Charlotte and Becky just left Naomi hanging at the end. ? I was like “Are they going to help her up?”

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      I think she eventually got up and started walking cause Charlotte motioned for her to come join them before the video went off.

      • Don ?

        I didn’t catch that. Thank you!

    • Gerg

      XD dead

  • trishlita721

    I really like Lana I think she’s got a lot to offer and its really refreshing seeing her compete…. These reviewers hate Lana.

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Right like she wasn’t horrible and it’s great to see someone that we haven’t seen every week compete.

      • trishlita721

        Right!! I really enjoy watching the weaker competitors gain advantages by cheat tactics and I haven’t seen her ever look bad in the ring its not like she’s Rosa mendes.

        • YonceLuvsDivas

          She far past what Rosa would be doing. Compare Beth Phoenix vs Rosa to Charlotte vs Lana and you’ll see.

    • Jaded

      She looks like she will become an OK wrestler.
      Why she doesn’t use her flexibility and obvious athleticism is beyond me.

  • trishlita721

    And as much as nattie deserves this I knew the division would suffer as a result.

  • OJ Von Erich

    The twitter beef between Reby Hardy & Naomi’s seamstress (Matt’s ex wife) was more interesting than Smackdown Live.

  • conan_kun

    Smackdown doesn’t do well, they didn’t make Charlotte/Natalya title feud compelling, why don’t they do Becky/Carmella and Naomi/Tamina with Lana side feuds seriously instead of throwing them into another dull 6 women tag. It makes me worried that even Paige and some NXT women move to Smackdown before year end, the situation may not change much until SD writer and creative team remember how to do at least 2 women feuds like before Shakeup.

    By the way, why does Alicia get fined by shoving the referee but Charlotte doesn’t

      Cause the ref didn’t fall.

  • DayOneISH!

    • Joseph

      Don’t you mean RAW? She still in the Sates and SD Live is currently in Argentina.

      • conan_kun

        If that’s a case, she may be just fill in a vacancy left by Nia.

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I’m just reading off a report. They estimated she meant Smackdown because the tweet she sent out said for the girls to get ready they a day and a half. She that put yesterday.

    • A?.

      SD stars are on their way to South America and Summer is still in the US but there’s a Raw live event this Friday.

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        She said on Twitter a day and a half for the girls to get ready. She sent that out Tuesday and a the site I got the news from estimated for the Smackdown event.

    • Jaded

      Didn’t she retire??

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        No. I debunked those rumors last week. I commented on the post where everybody said she was retiring and asked her what she meant. She replied she was watching old programs and was saying she wished her and Sasha actually had a feud.

  • A?.

    Only good thing was Naomi, my oh my how much I miss seeing her every week on TV

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Smackdown has been dropping the ball ever since Alexa left and charlotte got there. Not due to the talent, just the writing and effort given to the women.

  • OJ Von Erich

    The twitter war between Reby Hardy & Naomi’s seamstress Julie Youngberg was more interesting than Smackdown Live.

    • John Finnie

      God that Reby should be still in A&E if Kong had got her hands on her longer.
      Julie got abuse from the skanks fans.
      Reby has said worse than what julie said about Matt, who she knew

  • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

    I loved the match. Charlotte is very over as a babyface when she chased Nattie off the whole arena erupted. Loved Naomi’s new attire although it reminds me of Tamina’s. Charlotte’s attire continues to blow me away as well. Can we go back to 2 women’s matches a night SD please? ?

    • Jaded

      Charlotte looked like Rupert Everett in drag.
      The only thing she is blowing away is the smack down rating and audiences .

      • MK126

        But both divisions still suck and yet they aren’t apart of them right now sooooooo?

      • Nikki’s Sister

        Imagine saying this delusional mess when SDs division was much better when one of the “dearth’s” of the division was still around.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    So Charlotte gonna win the title then Paige feuds with her?

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Most likely she’ll return to even the playing field to 4 vs 4 and we’ll continue to get pointless tag matches

      • Aye Mate

        Yup. The multi-tag/multi-woman format has hit saturation point, a bit like the Diva era but just without the gimmickry behind them.

  • jbrizzy

    The WWE is trash yall

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    Both divisions are just stuck in this middle ground of “okay” right now. Most of the women are being used, but nothing is really clicking. The promo work between Alexa and Mickie on Raw has been good (as can be expected) but still not really enough to get excited about. And while we should be excited for Asuka, I can’t help feeling let down by her impending debut because we were robbed of the “OMG look it’s Asuka!” moment.

    I’ve still yet to be overly impressed by a single Smackdown women’s match since the initial brand split, so I can’t say I was expected MUCH more than we’re getting, but their equal booking has really done a number on dulling the immense amount of shine Charlotte had when they basically said she was the biggest superstar in the shakeup..

    • Jaded

      What of Natalya vs Nikki and their money in the bank ladder matches ?

    • Danny?

      Naomi VS Nattie at SS was good as well as Nattie VS Nikki in the FCA match. Also I really enjoyed the six pack challenge at Backlash last year but I agree there hasn’t been as good matches as there could have been considering the talent on the roster.

      • Robann

        Everything you’ve said, but I would also add Naomi and Alexa’s last singles match after WM, and Naomi and Charlottes main event match when TWC interfered. Both were pretty good. But nothing has really made me go “WOW!” in any of these matches.

    • Candice Queen

      Yeah I was saying to myself the other night, SD was never known for the high match quality like that of the Raw women’s division in month’s prior. Now that the decent booking they had is gone, we really get to see how weak the SD women’s division is compared to Raw. Like even though we had that garbage booking all of last year, we got some amazing HQ matches from the women. To this day I’m waiting for SD to SHOW OUT. But I suppose I’ll keep waiting…

    Am I the only one who really isn’t interested in Charlotte since she’s become babyface. At first it was nice now I’m bored. I miss that cold woman she’s better heel

    • Moan of ‘Licia

      She’s a horrible face. I don’t feel bad for her when she gets hit by her opponent.

      • Aye Mate

        I just spat out my coffee! ????

      • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

        Worry about Trashlica Flopx about to get buried yet again

        • Moan of ‘Licia

          That was just straight up embarrassing. I can’t fathom how excited you were when you came up with that nickname. You probably thought it was funny, but it’s so cringy. Next time you try to be funny.. BACKSPACE!

    • This may sound a bit cynical, but I feel like she’s pretty much stuck as a babyface for the foreseeable future since Flair recently went through his issues. God forbid he passes away; because then we’d be stuck with babyface Charlotte for at least another year.

      • Joseph

        Yes this does sound cynical.

  • IconicTrio

    Sorry I’m in the minority of people who couldn’t care less about Becky. To each their own, she’s good in the ring, but her goofy personality is meh to me and she doesn’t really shine like many of the other women do.

    Naomi on the other hand. She should never have lost that title. It should be heel Charlotte vs Naomi. Charlotte and Natalya is usually a great match but unfortunately their writing they’ve beem getting has been the pits. Does Vince genuinely hate the blue brand?

    • Super Mateo

      There’s nothing wrong with not caring about Becky. Nobody is appealing to everyone. However, I’m sure there are many people who don’t care about Becky right now, and that’s more likely on the WWE for not doing anything with her.

  • Tenzen

    Smackdown has been really boring lately..

    We need side feuds: easy to do -> Naomi vs Tamina/Lana, Becky vs Carmella

    And we need more for the championship one..
    More viciousness, more anger, more passion for the title and what it means – and please, for the love of God, forget about their dads uncles whoever else..

  • Geo14

    Kelly Kelly and Brie were better babyfaces than Charlotte and Becky.

    Eve and Maryse were better heels than Natalya, Carmella, Lana and Tamina.

    Diva’s era > Revolution’s era.

      – Nope. Especially not Brie. KK did at least have a lot of natural charisma.

      – Nope. Although there’s denying the women’s division (as a whole) is crying out for a more ‘hands on’ female heel. But it’s been a problem for years and Eve and Maryse sit alongside Nattie, Carmella and Co as the WWF/E’s bog standard bitchy/self-important kinda heels. The only women who were ever really allowed to go proper heel in the women’s division were the likes of Jazz, Victoria and Bull Nakano.

      – All the nope. All of it.

        Beth at first but after the Santino thing the beast beth wasn,t like jazz or even Victoria. At the end of her run victoria was kind of a joke
        Jazz was…. to quote good ole JR ” a female mike tyson” & she was

    I wish SDL would have done a few things right. First can we decide whether or not Naomi was supposed to hit her leg lariat or the running hurricarana on Nattie cause it looked like Nattie just fell and Naomi landed on top of her. Second I’m so bored with Nattie and these surprised ass facial expressions shes always doing in the ring, out of the ring, running away from the ring. LIke how is she always shocked that someone did something to her? Third I feel like Charlotte should have booted the chair into Nattie. It would have made more sense given that she got attacked by one at the PPV.

      I think she was going for a leg lariat but idk what happened lol Looked like Nattie just ran into her & fell

      • MK126

        Idk cause usually when Nattie does the low dropkick Naomi does the kip-up and then its the running hurricarana. Either way it looked tragic LOL

    SD trash tbh. Nattie’s a boring champion, but in her defense, I’ve been bored with all the reigns of the SD women tbh. Becky’s win is the most memorable thing. Alexa’s two reigns are both very forgettable tbh. All I remember is like 3 weeks prior to losing the belt to Nay, Nay was pinning her left and right. And then they fucked Nay over in her 2nd reign. Lana is the only thing I remember, which isn’t a compliment at all. And now Nattie is bound to be another forgotten champ on the list eventually.

    I want Char as heel tbh but I get that they want to experiment with her. It’s best to allow her to strengthen that side of her character bc WWE knows if all else fails they can rely on her to deliver as a heel.

    • MK126

      Sad to say but I think the only memorable feuds we’ll get with the SDL title is with Charlotte (when she turns heel) and if Nikki ever wins it. Other than that I feel like these reigns have been real flat in comparison to what it could be. Alexa’s was the only interesting one. I wont fault Becky for her reign because she was sick for 3 weeks when she lost the title and then Alexa just automatically won it. Naomi definitely shouldn’t have lost to Nattie since we were all waiting for the Charlotte and Naomi rematch. Turning Charlotte completely face after TWC vs Becky/Char/Naomi didn’t really help either since now Naomi and Char were friends and face vs face feuds don’t work

    Seeing Naomi was literally the only memorable thing about this week’s episode because she hasn’t been in action for weeks and her outfit gave me Pink Ranger mixed with Steven Universe tease (and I loved it). This whole episode was a meh, once again. Smfh

  • whoever’s idea it was for Lana to carry the workload of this match…. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a6fddce77432d41dfcd3c6f79fcc7fa1244c36a5ce08a0227a141e8521e57f3e.gif

  • Paige, Summer, Iconic Duo.. anyone please…

  • The pop Naomi got when D. Bry announced her name. Lit!
    Smackdown was real baldheaded, I missed 6 women tag matches lol and Carmella running her mouth on commentary. I love it.

    I literally cannot with how Lana took that big boot. The way she just runs so timidly with her hands placed right in front of her 2 seconds before she even took the boot…

    It’s like I can try my best to pretend and enjoy that those moves are real but there’s a limit to how much I can fool myself. Lana needs to step it up and learn to take bumps belivably God, I miss how green Trish and the other green divas in the attitude era used to take the bumps.

    • Randall

      I think Lana may be the worst since Ashley.

  • StraightFire

    Charlotte really does suck the life out of any division she’s part of.

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      I don’t see how it has anything to do with Charlotte when she isn’t the freaking champion of the division. SD was pretty shitty before and after WM before the shakeup so miss me with that garbage.

  • Womensor

    What happened to SD? It used to be great.

    • Dylan Gutierrez

      Vince castrated it once it started overshadowing RAW.

  • Randall

    Seems like Raw now has the smackdown writers from last year when they were beating Raw’s A$$ every week storyline wise and overal show wise. Not sure what’s up with smackdown as of late. I miss the original roster before the shakeup.

  • Oh My! SD Live! Become so boring, the 6-women’s tag team match was so generic, even though have more TV time.
