Tonight on SmackDown Live, Becky Lynch won a Fatal Five match that included Carmella, Charlotte Flair, Naomi and Tamina to be named the captain of SmackDown’s Survivor Series Women’s Team.

During a backstage meeting, SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan gathered the featured female Superstars to reveal they would represent SmackDown’s Women’s Team at this year’s Survivor Series, noting they needed to work together to make up for the brand’s defeat last year. He went on to book a Fatal Five match between them to determine which of them would be captain.

The match saw plenty of action inside and outside of the ring, including from Lana who was roaming at ringside to distract Charlotte, allowing Tamina to land a Superkick.

Towards the end of the match, Carmella was able to take out Naomi by throwing her shoulder first to the ring post. She then turned her focus on Lynch, landing in a Super Kick for a two count. After regrouping, Lynch locked in the Dis-Arm-Her on Carmella, forcing her to tap out.

As seen on last night’s Monday Night Raw, Alicia Fox will be lead Raw’s Women’s Team at Survivor Series.

Are you excited to see Becky Lynch as captain? What do you think of Team SmackDown? Which team are you rooting for this year? Let us know in the comments below!

  • Darryl lee

    I was fearful that they’re gonna give the win to tamina or Carmella of all people. Like they did with alicia last night. But thankfully they’ve though better.
    That’s a team captain I can get behind.

    • conan_kun

      Look like they redeemed Becky not being named SD women team captain last year when she’s SD women champ at that time.

    • Rosanna

      What’s wrong with Tamina Carmella and Alicia?

      • Darryl lee

        Alicia: very little to no credibility after years of doing nothing but lose.
        Tamina: no one cares, terrible wrestler.
        Carmella: on a losing streak since winning the briefcase.

        • A?.

          MITB winners always have a losing streak, I don’t see your point. And they need to take risks, it doesn’t have to be about Sasha and Bayley all the time, Alicia deserved and that’s that.

          • Darryl lee

            Longevity doesn’t mean you deserve it. That woman has been portrayed as a loser for years. And in the eyes of the casual viewer, they’re gonna see her as a loser. So now that this loser is now the leader of a team that consists of people who have far more credibility than her, how can anyone take her seriously?

          • A?.

            Longevity means you deserve it when you’ve been busting your ass for a fucking decade just to get treated like a joke. But too bad you can’t see that considering you’re probably too far up the 4hws asses to notice that other girls work as hard as them and get nothing.

          • Darryl lee

            So you’re basically implying that wins and losses don’t matter when it should. And I know everyone in the roster works hard, but that doesn’t mean that the fans are gonna be interested seeing a jobber featured in a prominent role.

        • Rosanna
  • vdcvt

    Id be so down to see promos between Alicia and Becky. I reckon their personalities would be freaking hilarious, and the brawls theyd go into would be intense without a doubt

    • Michael Burmeister

      The Alicia vs. Naomi promos would’ve been CLASSIC!

      • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

        Because both are known for their ground breaking promo skills -sarcasm-

        • Black women got your cracker ass mad?

          • KatyaMenelli

            Damn, chill with that!

  • conan_kun
    • Joseph

      Just to have Charlotte lose to Alexa? No Thanks just put the RAW title on Mickie. I have feeling that the SS elimination is gonna come down to the 4HW.

      • Martin Trombley

        You mean Asuka vs the world

        • perceval

          Yeah, Team Raw will win because Team SD isn’t ready for Asuka.

      • KatyaMenelli

        I really want to see a Mickie vs Natalya match Thoooo!!

        • Izzy4lw

          ESPECIALLY if they really let Nattie tap into her 2010 moveset and let Mickie go all out. OMG I would liiiiiiiiiive

    • Jo9834

      Im excited to see Becky used properly in some shape or form. Its been a while since she’s had the spotlight and a feud for the title or even a heel turn would be really welcome for her character, id love to see a feud with her and a returning Paige.

  • This should be so fun. Raw has an unstable and crazy captain while SD has the opposite.

    I hope Asuka is not in the tag match. I’d love her to face Dana, while Emma is in the elimination match.

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      Maybe Asuka can face someone in a number one contender’s match for the Raw title that way she still has a somewhat important spot on the card. Hopefully a returning Nia?

    • A?.

      Let’s hope so, because if Asuka is in the match then we know they’re definitely winning and they wouldn’t even make her lose by count out.

    • Nathan

      Or even Asuka vs Lana so it fits with the SD vs RAW theme

    • perceval

      Why wouldn’t Angle put her on the team?

      • I’m speaking strictly from my perspective, she’d obviously be the best fit for the team but for the fans it would be hella predictable.

        • perceval

          Of course, what the crowds will want to see is Asuka kicking Team Blue’s asses, and will be very disappointed if it doesn’t happen.

  • Women’s Revolution

    I’m glad Becky Lynch won after being under utilize and seen as an afterthought for so long… Maybe this will eventually lead up to her 2nd WWE Women’s Championship reign…

    I was fearing Carmella was going to win it just to redeem her as a threat to the division since she’s the Undisputed Ms. Money in the Bank…

    I gave up on the Ravishing Revolution. No progress whatsoever…

    I wanted Charlotte to win.

    • Michael Burmeister

      Personally, I wanted to see the Alicia vs. Naomi feud I had been waiting for for SOOOOO long…guess we won’t have that now, right.

      Ayo GlowMob, do we gotta riot again?

      • Captain DJ #FilipinoPride

        Naomi’s still part of the blue team relax

        • Michael Burmeister

          But her as captain would’ve meant the closest thing we saw to a Foxy-Nao singles feud.

          *sighs* I guess it’s destined to be one of these “Best Feuds to Never Happen”…

          • Captain DJ #FilipinoPride

            they can’t feud because they’re not on the same brand.

          • Michael Burmeister

            I know…so I’m hoping Foxy goes to Smackdown so that we can GET that feud before one of ’em retires.

          • KatyaMenelli

            Yea, I feel like Naomi is one of the SD-bred superstars, so It seems impossible that she’ll be sent to RAW. So I’m praying for a proper Alicia vs Naomi feud.

  • Parasite

    I feel like SD women’s division is so dry now. Like they really need new faces to come up

    • Malcolm James

      They really do

    • A?.

      They need the iconic duo.

      • Parasite

        Yes and some girls from MYC can skip nxt honestly

        • A?.

          I wouldn’t call up more than two girls. With Paige rumored to return then we would have 3 new faces (IF the iconic duo go to SD) they only have two hours and struggle to showcase all of them lately, so.

          • Parasite

            They use to do up to 3 feuds omg sounds like a cheap excuse for some reason.

          • A?.

            It’s like they switched writers with Raw, it’s sad.

          • Parasite

            I feel like the division itself is boring and they can’t do much..
            Besides Naomi and Carmella i feel no one is interesting .
            Nattie and Char are ok but..

      • Parasite
        • A?.

          Yes @ Summer and Kelly legends. Nikki can go to Raw with Cena

          • Parasite

            Nikki is a legend in her on way c’mon her team name on that dance show is #TeamSmackdown what a passionated Queen

        • Raekon

          We only need the queen in the middle, the other two can stay away.

        • Layla legend.

        • KatyaMenelli

          Keep the last one unless I see some improvement from that one. I admit, she was good for her charisma, and telling a story in the ring, which is hard for rookies like her to do. However, I need to see some improvements in the ring first. This isn’t like the Diva’s Era when you had almost the whole roster to make you look good. Thanks but no thanks.

        • Kelly_Killer

          YES SLAYERS (SUMMER & LAYLA) REUNITE AND SLAY US

    • Womensor

      I think SD needs new combinations. I would put Lana & Tamina feuding with Naomi (team BAD storyline), and Natalya, Carmella and Charlotte or Becky in the title picture. Becky can be in both feuds (she is everybodys bff). I would make Natalya vs Becky. Charlotte is always by Becky’s side, till Becky wins the title. After match, Charlotte betray Becky, and Carmella cash in.

      • Parasite

        Is funny bc Becky always gets betrayed all the time it might happen lol

        • Womensor

          It makes sense if Charlotte betray Becky. On Raw, she was the Queen, and on SD, she has to see how Becky did what she couldn’t: win the SD title, so she gets angry and betray Becky with a tough beat down, so Carmella cash in. And you have Charlotte vs Becky, and Natalya vs Carmella

          • Parasite

            Yeah i agree is a good idea i’ve done something similar in my universe mode.

          • Womensor

            Lol I’m playin My Superstar mode. It’s a shame you can’t play as a female in that mode.

          • Parasite

            Ikr and playing quick plays don’t give points lol

          • Womensor

            we could play..

          • Parasite

            Sure, are you playing on Ps4?

          • Womensor

            sure. give me ur name

        • Izzy4lw

          I’m waiting for someone to betray Becky and have her snap and hit them with a chair lol

      • A?.

        That’s cute but I would personally go with Becky turning heel instead, it would be something fresh and her heel run in nxt was pretty decent.

        • Womensor

          I prefer Charlotte as heel. She was born to be that bitch queen she is. And Becky the unstoppable underdog.

          • Joseph

            They aren’t going to turn Charlotte heel when her as a face is working. How are you going to have the fans boo her when her dad almost died.

          • KatyaMenelli

            LOL I was going to say this.

          • Izzy4lw

            Right, but that doesn’t change the fact that Charlotte is at her best as a heel. Some women just work better in certain roles; not saying her face run is bad because she’s smart and has added her queen gimmick to a good guy character, but she really shines when she’s a take no prisoners heel. Same with Banks. Becky can be a heel and does a good job of it, but she’s such a natural babyface – she’s a bit like Mickie for me in that they can play the villain, but are just so GOOD at being a babyface.

          • Joseph

            We know that but her work as a Face. The fans have like her now and is behind her.

          • perceval

            Isn’t the entire SD roster except Bryan heel, now?

    • Captain DJ #FilipinoPride

      A certain Anti-Diva needs to join team Blue to shake things up.

      • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

        NOPE. IM SICK OF PEOPLE FORGETING HOW SHE LET BRAD MADDOX DISRESPECT THE WOMENS TITLE. FIRE HER. SHES NOT NEEDED. WE HAVE SUMMER, EMMA & DANA DOING NOTHING HERE ARE YOUR NEW FACES. PLUS THE ENTIRE NXT WOMES ROSTER SO NO BYE H0E YOU ARE NOT NEEDED.

        • Robann

          ….Calm down lol. Did YOU touch the title after they did that? No? Oh, okay.

          • KatyaMenelli

            But There were women after her they did.

          • Michael Max

            They may have been the champion, but each person gets there own replica belt. The one Maddox jizzed on was a replica lol

          • KatyaMenelli

            I need to see proof of that…or hear or see confirm it from the WWE.

          • Michael Max

            Each champion gets their own replica to keep, look at Miz and Maryse’s house, they have their own copy’s of every title they won on their wall. The title used on TV is specifically for TV.

          • Robann

            But WAS IT YOU? No? Worse shit has been done to these titles, it just never came to light illegally like Paige’s situation did. As I said before, calm down.

          • Kelly_Killer

            ^ THIS plus what about the fans that took pictures with Paige and the title. Children dont deserve that.

          • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

            TEA. Dont do CHILDREN that look up to you this way.

          • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

            As if thats an excuse for what she did.

          • Robann

            What, that she had consensual sex with two other grown adults? Or that they had a replica prop involved? Or that they videotaped it? ALL of these things have been done in the past and people are still doing it now. It was semen, not the Bubonic Plague. And remember that this was posted WITHOUT EITHER OF THEIR CONSENT. Leaking private information and “revenge porn” is illegal. Having sex isn’t, remember that.

            Calm down. Once again.

          • Izzy4lw

            YES. YOU BETTER PREACH. It was sex between consensual adults that was shared without her consent and used a REPLICA. What’s funny is half the “FIRE HER SHE LET SOMEONE JIZZ ON THE BELT” people are the ones rabid come wrestlemania season like ‘CHYNA SHOULD BE IN THE HOF” when she literally did a porn parody in which a woman wrestler is gangbanged by male wrestlers because THAT isn’t disrespectful to lady wrestlers at all aparently), or who didn’t protest Madusa for taking the title and throwing it in the trash. it wasn’t like she lit the title on fire, proclaimed the women’s division dead, and then dumped sewage in it.

          • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

            Really??? Link me a source for another female superstar that had someone kvm on whats the biggest accomplish in WWE. Is this why Naomi and Natalya waited 7-10 years? Is this why they’ve worked so hard. To have a trash like Paige literally have her bf kvm on what they’ve been so hard working for? And im beyond calm hun.

          • Robann

            First of all, cut the crap. Don’t act like you give a damn what women like Nattie and Naomi waited almost a decade for just because of your unhealthy hatred and obsession for Paige. This WAS NOT recent, it happened years ago round the same time both aforementioned women were being terribly misused on the main roster. So they weren’t working for that title AT ALL. NXT was not the powerhouse it is today back then, it was looked at as a joke until Paige’s roster came in.

            Second, you don’t know what ANY of these Superstars do with their significant others behind closed doors, as we shouldn’t. Nattie and Naomi could be bussin’ it open with their hubbies every chance they get and it wouldn’t matter because IT’S NOT OUR BUSINESS. Period! Stop acting like this is something that’s so terrible. Paige was with two people she KNEW and TRUSTED at that moment, no some stranger (and even if it was a stranger who cares?). Like I said, it’s a plastic freaking replica of a belt, settle down.

          • Exotic

            Its disrespectful and has significantly tarnished the titles legacy, end of. Pretty BIG deal.

          • Robann

            It’s not disrespectful and it shouldn’t have been anyone’s business in the first damn place, because way worse has probably been done to those REPLICA titles. END OF. Foh.

          • Exotic

            No it shouldn’t have but she shouldn’t have foolishly used it as a prop for sexual activities in the first place.

            And worse? Like what? Unless theres a hard copy of proof of someone doing worse to these belts, then don’t bring it up. Thanks.

          • Robann

            “No it shouldn’t have” your opinion after that part is irrelevant. You know that it was an invasion of privacy, it was illegal to leak that, and there was nothing illegal and wrong about them participating in an consensual act. Everything else after that is an irrelevant OPINION, so stop spouting it as fact. So it should not have been an argument in the first place. It happened years ago, they have a WHOLE NEW TITLE. Get over it and stop being a judgmental, hateful prude. Thanks :)

          • Exotic

            Paige has clearly used that belt as prop for sexual activities. Thats not an opinion pal, since there is PROOF of it.

            I am well aware that it was an invasion of privacy but it doesn’t change the fact of her disrespecting the title in such a filthy manner. I’m not saying they can’t participate in a consensual act, but was insulting such an honorable accolade which arguably started the womens revolution at NXT needed to please the thirsty desires of a man?

            For you to give her pass is extremely ignorant and honestly I’m appalled that you think its acceptable to treat the title as a complete and utter joke. It happened years ago, yes and still to this day, PEOPLE WILL REMEMBER THIS INFAMOUS SCANDAL. First thing that pops up when someone says “NXT WOMENS CHAMPIONSHIP” is “Oh Paige was the first women to hold it” which would immediately be proceeded by the memory of semen squirting all over her face with the belt being used a cum dumpster. She has tarnished the legacy of the lineage of the title history.

          • Exotic

            Oh and did you not say there was worse things done to titles before? Please step up with hard proof, thanks :)

          • Robann

            And, Chyna (who I still love) had a whole porn wrestling parody, and Sunny sold her HOF rings for drugs and was also a porn star. But you’re worried about some damn semen on a plastic ass belt. Settle tf down and stop acting like you’re holier than thou. I’m done answering to your ass.

          • Exotic

            Are we talking about Chyna or Sunny here ma’am? Nope we are not, so how the fuck did you assume I’d give them a pass and not Paige?

            Lets be honest, mocking your job isn’t as deep or serious as mocking your accomplishments and the accolades WWE has honored you with.
            Sunny on the other hand, did your dumbass just give her a pass too? I can’t believe you aren’t bothered by the dirty deeds she have done the past 5 years. You do know shes a racist hot steaming bag of garbage shit who has countlessly made disgusting remarks about the WWE?

            Bitch, Imma stand the fuck up in the middle of the room and make sure your vile ass understands the shit PAIGE AND SUNNY have pulled ain’t acceptable.

        • KatyaMenelli

          I hate to say it, but I AGREE!!

        • Nathan

          What did he do to the title?

        • Kat Love

          People make mistakes. Clam down and move on.

          • Exotic

            How do you mistakenly use a title belt as a prop to cum in on?

          • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

            SCREAMING ^^^^^ YOU JUST ENDED THE ARGUMENT THERE

          • Exotic

            omg girl these dumbass bitches are hypocritical AF. If someone like Kelly, Maryse or the Bella’s done this type of shit, they be still tugging on their weaves on every article they are mentioned in. But if someone like Paige who had done it, they be giving her a free pass saying it ain’t that deep. TF

          • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

            So true! They still cant get over Kelly being a polygamist in the locker room.

          • Kat Love

            Let it go and move on.

    • Candice Queen

      Yes

    • Smackdown needs the Iconic Duo and Ember. Raw can keep Paige and Summer

  • Womensor

    Funny how last year, Becky was SD champ and Nattie SD captain, and now it’s backwards.

  • A?.

    I hope SD wins this year, even though Raw is better but they already won last year.

  • Womensor

    Maybe Becky’s team winning at SS makes her the next #1 contender.

  • Womensor

    I would love a comeback at SS. Paige for SD against Natalya, or Nikki on Raw against Alexa.

  • Michael Burmeister

    *sighs* And here I was looking forward to the Alicia vs. Naomi feud…

    At least I DIDN’T WASTE MY MONEY buying a ticket…

  • Rosanna

    Natayla had posted this before smackdown live and with her women’s championship but instead of her side plates she was wearing Naomi’s. This is from today before the fatal-5-way. Wonder what this means. https://twitter.com/notivoryy/status/922961860621733888

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay
    • Robann

      I HOPE TF SO! Lol!

      • Kessa Kez

        interesting. have wwe shown nattie with her own personalised plates since the title changed hands? – if they haven’t then its probably a case of nattie being an interim champion and they are waiting for her to drop it before they change the plates.

        • Robann

          Yes, she has her own personalized plates, they have pink/black hearts on it from what I could tell. But, there is nothing that’s standing out about Nattie’s reign and it’s unfortunately not her fault. That was the problem with Naomi’s reigns too, but I found myself way more excited to see Naomi come out with her glowing side plates (and eventually glowing belt) than I am to now see Nattie with her title. Which sucks, because I’m happy both of them can finally say they were SDL women’s champion at least once.

  • Match of Year Maker

    Finally my baby Becky wins something, SHE DESERVES IT after have been robbed last year https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c09d0a75878c0a59d8f5ea34d55b1b0bfedfd16fb6bc798a26304a03f782bebf.gif being champion.

  • This was a much needed win for her! I’m glad it was her!

  • Seraphina Rosenhart

    Honestly, if the Raw team is Alicia, Sasha, Asuka, Nia Jax, and Mickie, I don’t know how Smackdown can hope to match them.

    I am glad that Becky is leading Team Smackdown though. She deserves it.

    • Raekon

      It won’t be since Nia is on vacations for now and I don’t think they will add Asuka in the match since it would make things way too predictable. Emma and Dana will be in the team and probably Dana will be the first to be eliminated before Carmella or Tamina if they will go the predictable way.
      After that I see Alicia, Naomi, Emma, bayley, becky and mickie falling until sasha and Charlotte fighting it out for whichever side Vince booked to win (probably raw since he always want’s raw to win it all in such ppvs).

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Well it was rumored that she would be back in time for the European tour in early November so she should also be back in time for SS.

        • Jake

          They can promote Asuka then have her ger attacked and replaced by Nia.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            It’s too early to make Asuka look “vulnerable” tbh.

  • Joseph

    Looks like the band won’t be getting back together anytime soon.

    Look at the comments.

    talk about underutilized!
    The right person won here

    • Captain DJ #FilipinoPride

      even on Twitter Bayley just can’t win lol.

    • Lucas

      every time they do this i think they’re smoking weed but then i remember is that dumb tea thing.

      • Michael Max

        I thought the same thing.

  • Okay Beck leading Team Blue, well deserved.

  • Captain DJ #FilipinoPride

    Like I said in a different post Asuka’s situation for Survivor Series is a 50/50. Part of me wants Asuka to complete team red’s team of Alicia, Sasha, Mickie, and Bayley because kayfabe wise, it would not make sense to pass on your division’s undefeated numero uno in your team but at the same Asuka joining would no doubt spell the end for team Blue. That would be beyond obvious and predictable. Emma should complete team red instead (don’t think Nia’s returning soon) and ideally Captain B should form her team that consists of Charlotte, Naomi, Carmella and a returning Paige.

  • Cabbyhighs

    Naomi bumped her ass off during this match! She caught mad height with that huricarana before she was splattered to the barricade… then being thrown into the steel post. My girl was taking hits tonight.

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Sloppy spit tho. Not her fault however

  • Aye Mate

    A much more logical choice in terms of narrative: Becky’s the purest heroine on Smackdown and could use this as a gateway to becoming the next #1 contender. Plus, she has a lot more kayfabe leadership qualities on paper than Foxy, so perhaps that will play into the outcome too.

  • ???

    I was really impressed by Tamina ! She double suplex both Naomi and Becky !! Never saw her doing that, she really gained weight .

    Congratulations to Becky ! Even though I’m not her fan but she deserves it .. I would be more happy to have Naomi as the captain!

  • ???

    Off topic :

    Who do you guys think will move to SD and who is going to Raw in the next superstar shake-up? And who do you want other than your predictions?

    Who I think :-

    RAW :
    Carmella
    Becky Lynch

    Smackdown:
    Alicia Fox or Emma
    Bayley

    What I want :

    RAW
    Becky Lynch
    Carmella

    Smackdown:
    Sasha Banks
    Emma (Only If Raw ruin her again)

    Yawn. Honestly what happened? Smackdown used to be hot shit?

    Bar Charlotte and Naomi none of the women on the blue brand really hold my focus. And the writing hasn’t compensated for that either.

    • Super Mateo

      SD used to be hot s**t? It still is a flaming pile of excrement.

  • Monkey Tennis

    You know the writing on WWE programming is especially weird when you find yourself supporting Alicia Fox over Becky.

    • perceval

      Just a week ago, we would never have pictured babyface Alicia leading her team against a heel Becky, Charlotte, and Naomi.

  • Dysfunctional

    Well since Shane announced that all of these girls will be part of the team,I guess no Paige for another month.

    • Organization XIII

      Unless she returns at SS & helps Team Blue win

    • ???

      I just can’t with Paige lies everytime, it’s been a very long time now and I just lost all my patience and interest on her , I can clearly see “In the next two months ” as she claimed WWE will announce her departure from WWE !

      And when she returns she’ll 75-80% be on SD roster BUT think about it .. SDL booking for the women became horrible and we have little to no storyline going on right now.

      Smackdown don’t need new talent as much as they need good creative team.

  • Lucas

    ok, i can’t lie anymore. Tina’s a fucking mess. She messed up the double suplex, she messed up what looked like a cool spot outside between her, ‘Mella and Charlotte and then she totally sandbagged on Charlotte on that fallaway slam on the outside. WWE’s being so boring I can’t even keep up that delusional thinking y’all have here on DD where everyone’s good and a queen. Tina has to GO!

    • Sunny’s Therapist

      Tamina is the perfect example of “who you know” keeping you employed

    • NoWayHoeSay

      She needs to go along with others

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Actually char was coming in too hot on that exploder to the outside

  • Women’s Revolution

    Becky Lynch, Carmella, Charlotte Flair, Naomi, and Tamina Snuka (w/Lana) vs. Alicia Fox, Mickie James, Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Emma (w/Dana Brooke)

    I think they’ll keep Asuka away from the division, but at the same time I can’t see them leaving Asuka off the card ?

    • Super Mateo

      Other than WWE logic, there is no sensible reason Dana would be out there with Emma.

      • Women’s Revolution

        Dana’s not out there with Emma. She’s representing Team RAW to serve as equalizer to Team SD Live Lana

    • Gerg

      poor dana would be ringside at her second survivor series

  • Robann

    Slightly off topic but why ya’ll want new people to come to SDL so badly? They can BARELY do well with the women they have on the roster already. Instead of trying to push more people on and possibly make it even worse to get a good story line/feud going, how about they work on making what they already have great. Putting new women on that roster will NOT change the horrid booking and writing. There’s so much potential GOOD feuds on the current roster: Naomi v. Tamina (and Lana), Charlotte and Becky (with one of them being heel), Becky v. Nattie, Charlotte v. Carmella, Becky v. Carmellsworth, and so on. Stop trying to push aside the women who can clearly still go if they were given the space and time to do so! EVERYONE (excluding Lana) on that roster can put on a decent ass match if they were actually able to do so.

    *deep breath* Okay, back on track. I’m sorry, I’m low-key excited to see Paige but even she won’t be able to escape deathly bookings. Stop trying to force her return upon us. Period!

    I was rooting for either Becky or Naomi (who took HELLA bumps this match tf?! I was all for it lol) so I’m happy Bex won. Hopefully this’ll put her at the forefront for a successful reign, because it’s long overdue.

    • Michael Burmeister

      If the women were getting good pushes on RAW, we wouldn’t be asking for them to be brought to SmackDown Live…

      • Robann

        The problem is evident not only with the women, but with the men as well on BOTH brands. I’ve stated this multiple times in the past. So I’m confused as to what this has to do with what I said about not wanting to rush more people on SDL’s women’s roster.

    • GOD STRATUS•

      The problem. They’re most talented women are babyfaces not facing each other

      • Robann

        Exactly. It’s like they don’t know how to book a face v face feud properly…..any feud properly actually.

  • Super Mateo

    I’m happy to see Becky win something (even something useless, see below) and it’s always nice to see her in action. However, it was yet another “throw everyone in the ring together” matches that SD has completely worn out. I’m so bored with everything SD does. The only thing SD is doing better right now is that their main men’s champion actually shows up. On the women’s side, there are four great characters to work with, and they aren’t using any of them right. One was doing HIAC and FCA matches just a year ago. One has a great disco/blacklight entrance and good moves, but they won’t give her a rival or any kind of ongoing story. One is in a cringeworthy story involving treating a human like a puppy. One wasn’t doing anything for months until this victory. None of them are champion.

    And what does being a captain even mean? It’s a useless honor, as she’s not deciding who’s on the team and she doesn’t have any say in who tags whom, so what’s the point? Unless they somehow force this to come into play, most of the time, it means nothing.

    • Robann

      Thank you. Well put!

    • Michael Max

      An interesting stipulation of being captain, could be if your team wins you get a title shot. *Sighs* More missed opportunities.

      • KatyaMenelli

        That would be so cool honestly!

      • Robann

        Great idea. Where do you put in an application to become a writer for this damn company. I can promise you I could turn this shit around in a matter of weeks lol.

        • Dylan Gutierrez

          Doesn’t Vince choose what goes and what doesn’t? There could be great ideas being thrown but he could shoot them down. A lot of former writers have spoken about it.

          • Robann

            I figured that, but I didn’t know former writers have mentioned it. Smfh I hate to say it but the company would probably get better once he passes on. We ain’t living in the Attitude Era anymore and the shxt he keeps putting out there ain’t satisfying at all.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Carmella if you don’t cash in that briefcase!! She needs to do it at SS for sure. I’d love to see her find a loop hole in the contract and cash in on Alexa after their match

    • NoWayHoeSay

      Ohh that’s a good idea! They didn’t say it has to be smackdown title

      • TorrieTrishStacyLita

        Right!!

        • GlowTime

          …or maybe she cashes in and wins the championship, isn’t allowed to participate in the tag match as champion, leading to the return of Paige?!

    • Lucas

      what if at the ppv the title match happens first and Carmella cashes in and goes into the SS tag match as the new champ. that would be good. i mean, it’s impossible to happen, but if she cashed in on alexa, the sd team would have all the championships

      • Dylan Gutierrez

        They’d draft her to RAW if she did that.

  • FiguredRetro

    Wow have the women on SD fallen from hero to zero. On Raw they’re featured throughout the entire broadcast and Smackdown what reason do we have to even care?

    They have really dropped with ball with Lana and Tamina. Wtf is wrong with them? Put them in a feud with Naomi. Just do something. It’s boring. It’s stale.

    I hope Alicia Fox picks up the win for her team at the PPV. She deserves it and needs it. Summer Rae also If she meticulously returns. If it has to Smackdown then I hope Tamina or Lana win it for their team.

    • KatyaMenelli

      And what’s funny is that this Booking on RAW has only happened for a month. See how quickly people are Turning on SD? It’s crazy.

      • ???

        Exactly!

        Myself, I turned on SDL ever since post Money In The Bank .. after the most disappointing moment this year ..

        Raw has definitely changed 100% from being totally sucks to be totally amazing , it’s funny because now it’s backwards for SDL haha .

  • ???

    I wonder if they’ll let Asuka be on the Raw team ?

    She really needs to be out of the survivor series team match because we all know she’s going to win and this will ruin the excitement of the match ..

    I have an idea and I don’t think someone brought this up before , let have Paige back after one or two weeks on SDL and then she shows up in the Raw before SS and attack Asuka .. which leads to Paige vs Asuka at SS and this way Asuka will not be ignored and we will have great match (This will not happen but this is the only way to make things interesting)

    • Nathan

      It maybe if Asuka gets announced for team Raw the SD girls go pay her a visit on the Raw before SS. They beat her down and make her unable to compete. Asuka looks strong cause it took al the SD girls to take her out, the match could go either way because Asuka isn’t in it.

    • Nathan

      Or maybe they just won’t put her on the Raw team. Lana will complain about not being on team SD so Shane makes a match for SS or the Pre-Show. Lana vs Asuka

      • ???

        Hmmmm .. I don’t know but it can work !

        Asuka vs Lana should be on the main show , because Asuka did just arrive and she needs to kick Lana’s ass hard in the main show, the match will not be long anyway only 6 minutes maximum.

        I really want to see Asuka has great match with worthy opponents like Paige .. everyone in both SD and Raw roster will give Asuka decent/good/great match but Lana :(

        • Dylan Gutierrez

          Asuka having a competitive match with Lana will do her no favors. People are complaining already enough about giving Emma some offense which we all know she’s capable but Lana of all people.

          I’d rather see Asuka vs. Paige over the NXT jealousy/first Women’s Champion/longest reigning.

          • ???

            But have her beat Lana will get her more over I think , it’s not my number 1 in my list but at least better than have nothing for Asuka at SS at all .. SS is one of the biggest PPV’s of the year.

        • Nathan

          Yeah I know what you mean, but while it’d be amazing to see Asuka vs Paige, I wouldn’t want her to loose her first match back… Lana atm seems to be all talk and no walk, so I’d happily see her dominated by Asuka. Even if it was only a 4 min match.

        • perceval

          The thing is, what storyline reason would you have for Angle not putting Asuka on the team?

  • -V

    I honestly thought they will bring back Paige. That was a good match & it looks to me that this years elimination match will be much better with the participants revealed already.

    • ???

      Participants? Who ?

      Also, they didn’t confirm that there will be elimination chamber match for women right ?

  • ???

    Boooooo Nia will be part of the Raw women’s team .. c’mon she just competed last year already
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7a5738acc45b4ececb833e4766b336bf9e55c756ddbbc283f07b65d63d40fe94.png

    Mickie James and Emma both deserves to be in the match way more than her ! It’s not like she does have something special to show either , so disappointed.

    • MK126

      Mickie better not be out of the match this year for Nia’s big ass. She’s not even a threat to anybody anymore so team SDL faking like they’re scared of her is just gonna make them all look stupid

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Mickie should get a title match… Oh but champ vs champ. Smh

      • ???

        Not Mickie nor Emma should be out for Nia botch Jax , seriously nothing against her but it’ll piss me off if she got a spot over Mickie and Emma , they are way better than her and didn’t appear last year on SS so why don’t have new faces ?

        This year is basically same last year for Raw (Alicia Nia Sasha Bayley) one member left it’ll be either Mickie or Emma but I’m still frustrated we can’t have both over Nia .

        You know what funny ? Is how messy Nia’s booking is .. everyone is scared of her yet she got beaten multiple times by Sasha , Bayley , got eliminated by Becky Lynch , and Mickie James was so close to beat her if not DQ by Bliss . I just can’t with her booking .

        • perceval

          You forgot Asuka.

    • Gerg

      I only want Nia in the match for the novelty of nia and tamina face to face….i mean their encounter might not be that great based on their in ring work but still. Samoan Bitches bout to face off and im all for it!

      #TeamTamina

      • ???

        Maybe this is the only interesting thing in having Nia in the team , I wonder if she’ll go toe-toe with Tamina because I’m kinda interested to see them face off .

        But still Emma and Mickie James will be more entertaining in my opinion :D

        • Gerg

          True, Emma and Mickie would make the match better/competitive. We all know Nia would just toss Team Blue around then get eliminated in a way to make her look dumb or weak. I’m hoping a double count out for both Tamina and Nia to protect their powerhouse image in some way.

          • ???

            LMAO I laughed at “look dumb and weak” you’re totally right !

            I hope they’ll not be pinned or submitted but you know how messy their booking is , imagine if Carmella locks Nia in her submission and Nia tapped out to CARMELLA LOL this will be the most embarrassing moment in her career!

            I will not be surprised if they do that with Nia, I mean last year she was submitted by Becky and it wasn’t even believable.

  • #FlairfortheGold

    Rumor has it Jax walked out after she found out she’d lose AGAIN to Banks. I better not here y’all complaining since you guys keep arguing that she shouldn’t be portrayed as a weak monster. I’m not a fan of hers, but to keep getting pinned or submitted by the horses just diminishes her credibility and I’d do the same thing. Especially if she’s supposed to be a monster type (which she really isn’t but ok)

    • Diva_Fan

      She’s teasing a return on Twitter before Survivor Series so she should be back soon and on the RAW team .

      • #FlairfortheGold

        Hopefully she takes her anger out against the Raw Peasants, bar Mickie, Alexa, and Asuka lol

  • Candice Queen

    wow char losing to a DDT after survivng HIAC would not make sense. Don’t match Alexa vs Char tbh

  • It sucks how bad Smackdown sucks lately. I like don’t care about it anymore. I remember when Smackdown was on fireeeee!!!! They desperately need to mix up their roster.
    Add Paige and the Iconic Duo, and let whoever was in charge of the show last year run it right now. Kinda over Nattie as champion already. Didn’t think I’d be saying that.

    • MK126

      Her random introduction yesterday was dumb as shit lol. Her music played and she was already sitting at ringside and then the announcer did his job and then she left. I’m over her reign too

      • ???

        LOL it was so dumb ! But you know let her enjoy it for another two months because it will be her last reign .

        • MK126

          If it lasts that long. It would have made more sense to have her interfere and then let her and Charlotte fight in the crowd or have Charlotte chase Nattie to the backstage area instead of her being thrown over the barricade and then laying there

          • ???

            People say Nattie is boring , in terms of in mic skills yes I agree .. but half of the fault is the booking’s fault .

            They didn’t even bother to build feuds with other more interesting characters like Charlotte, Becky and Naomi.

          • ???

            Her reign can be more interesting and valuable but they failed to utilize it well.

    • ???

      No matter who they’ll bring , it’ll be still sucks ..we can have MULTIPLE feuds

      Becky vs Carmella
      Naomi vs Tamina with Lana
      Charlotte vs Natalya

      We can have all of these great feuds but the creative team is bad , we need better writers !

  • Xaos

    Becky is so zzzzz…??

  • Jasun Mack

    Becky is boring. That is all.

  • Exotic

    Naomi should have won.
    We would’ve had one captain whose calm headed and collected and other whose mentally insane and on verge of having an spazz attack. It’d would have been a cool contrast to see between the way they both lead their teams the next following weeks.

    With Becky as captain… Meh.

  • Yikes for Becky! Finally having something for her.

  • Jack square

    Waah!!! Naomi didn’t win….SMH…..F off Namoi fans. She was in the spotlight for 6 months as champ FFS. Give someone else a chance. Becky was the obvious choice if you watched Raw. Stop being fucking marks.
