Tonight on SmackDown Live, Charlotte Flair defeated Natalya to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion.

The back and forth match saw both women compete inside and outside the ring, When the action spilled outside, the Superstars made the most of the outside environment to inflict some damage – Charlotte tossing Natalya to the barricade early on and Natalya targeting Charlotte’s back with a powerbomb to the ring post.

As the Superstars found their way back inside the ring, Natalya was able to lock in the Sharpshooter but Charlotte was able toughen it out and break the hold. Charlotte would then find an opening to lock in the Figure Eight that and force Natalya to tap out.

Post match, Charlotte gave a celebratory speech, saying that she dedicated tonight’s win to her father Ric Flair but the Hall of Famer made a surprise appearance to congratulate his daughter on her big victory.

With the win, Charlotte Flair makes history as the first woman to have held the WWE Divas, NXT, Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships.

This also now means that Charlotte Flair will represent SmackDown at Survivor Series in a Champion vs. Champion match against the Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss.

    Survivor series has turned Into a must see ppv now.

  • Perfection.

    5-time Women’s Champion. First ever female Grand Slam champion.

    I’m so proud.

  • Bad and Bossy

    Charlotte Flair now is THE most accomplish woman in the WWE history

  • Parasite

    I admit the fact that Nattie lost so soon brokes my heart a little.
    Congrats to Charlotte .. ?

  • Great match, and it was so good to see her win like this, instead of just arriving and getting handed the title like Alexa.

    For the first time in a while we saw Charlotte struggle, both inside and outside the ring. This was not Raw anymore where she had her peasants, she had to earn her spot here, and she did.

    Everything came full circle, in her hometown, against her arch rival, with Ric congratulating her. SD did that.

    • Makay

      But where does nattie fall in this? I mean she got outshined terribly. She’s hardly beaten flair clean and her reign was horribly booked .

  • L.S #PushBillieKay

    The celebration give me 2015 Charlotte vibes. Now she need to turn heel

    At least it was a hard fought battle for the title. Better than five feet of dead to the bed walking in and snatching the championship every month

    • Welchy

      But you outchea stanning Whorrie Lita & Stacy who wrestled just as bland & Trish who snatched the title just as much. Lolz

    • Jo9834

      If this were the attitude era Vince would be making out with Alexa every week, having her as champ and regularly featured gives him enough to fap to. She is however a promo BEAST, I won’t deny that, she works with the worst material and makes it work.

      • TorrieTrishStacyLita

        I agree she’s great in the mic for what’s NOW. Put her back with Trish, Molly, Sable and they would drag this girl through the mud though. I don’t hare Alexa but they need to invest in the other women soon. It’s like we reverted back to 2011 again

    • wysna

      Ugh. I used to try and justify her positioning tbh. But after she beat Mickie James with a forearm, she’s on her own.

      • TorrieTrishStacyLita

        Exactly. Idk how that was even allowed to be the ending of their main event match. Her main event match with a MICKIE JAMES. Idk how anyone can Stan for Alexa anymore

  • Lio

    All is right in the world.

  • conan_kun
    • OJ Von Erich

      What’s that got to do with Paige? She’s only stating that Charlotte is the last horsewoman she has left to beat.

      • IconicTrio

        Paige has kayabe beaten all four of them, and 3/4 horsewomen have beaten Alexa… so WWE logic says Paige can take Lexi out.

        I’ve managed to confuse myself there.

        • Joseph

          They weren’t know as the Horsewomen back in 2013/2014.

          • IconicTrio

            Yes I know… but WWE logic. If they wanted to they could have Paige say “I’ve beaten all of them too”.

            Throw me a bone here man.

  • Wicked Emma

    Good match Charlotte is the champ WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    Grand Slam Champ ??

    Alexa who? ??

  • #FlairfortheGold
  • OJ Von Erich

    Can we all take a moment to say a prayer for Lana, who earlier tonight was dragged to HELL by Alexa Bliss…

    • trishlita721

      What happened??

      • OJ Von Erich

        During the RAW siege, the RAW women attacked the Smackdown women’s locker room & Alexa just dragged Lana across the room & out of camera shot.

        • trishlita721

          Oh no poor lana I’m really rooting for her :(

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      That might top the meme of Dana running

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Lol I didn’t even see it and is just dying off this pic of Lana.

    • ssilva872

      She violently dragged my God!

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Scrm

    • The Wicked Bitch

      Scrmmmm

    • Jo9834

      Lana being dragged physically out of the division she’s trying so hard to be part of, not for you Lana…creative is shady for this.

      • MK126

        That was definitely Carrano’s idea lol

    • NoWayHoeSay

      ????

    • Shan

      Alexa vs. Lana. Slap vs. Kick. Who will win? You decide.

    • wysna

      I live for the sideline queens killing at these interbrand attacks like a couple of D-list actresses doing so well in horror flicks.

    • I bet Lana thought she was on twitter while Alexa dragged her up and down that locker room

    • What?

      5 bucks says @divaadore makes a custom of Lana in that outfit by the end of the week.

  • SaltyMcSalt

    Not like everyone didn’t call this but good for her and her accomplishments.

  • Xaos

    *pretends to be shocked gif*

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Not the crowd chanting you deserve it like this girl ain’t been Champion 7 times !

    A good match though! Congrats Charlotte. Can’t wait to see Charlotte vs Alexa.

    • NoWayHoeSay

      ??? I was like why they cheering like she never been near a belt

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    Also Paige is the only other woman that can become a Grand Slam Champ

    • Mickie can too

      • Gail-Rollins Fan

        I’m not sure what you would call it if Mickie won. I guess it would be a grand slam in it’s own right as well. But then if she had won NXT as well, then she’d be a super grand slam champ? haha hell if I know..

        • I guess 4 different titles only is grand slam.

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            I think grand slam is every title that is available for you to compete for. So I think technically she would have had to of won the NXT title to make her a grand slam. I don’t know though, it’s tricky since the old Women’s Title is retired.

          • This is from Wikipedia so 4 titles is all she needs
            The Grand Slam is an accomplishment in professional wrestling. It is a distinction given to a professional wrestler who has won four specific championships within a promotion throughout the course of their career

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            I think it matters which four though. Like for the men it’s US, IC, Tag, and WWE/World. Like you can’t replace one of the four with the Hardcore or European Championships. So I guess that would be up to WWE to decide which four.

          • They mention that as well
            “The four titles typically include three singles championships plus a tag team championship. The singles championships include a primary, secondary, and tertiary championship.”
            For example before the titles they considered were World, IC or US, Tag, and Hardcore or European. Now it’s just World, Tag, IC and US.

          • Winter Fresh

            I think you’re correct. It states you have to win 4 “specific” titles to be grand slam champion; World title, Secondary title, Tag title, & Tertiary title.

            But the Women’s division never had any tiers for their championships though. So not sure how the grand slam rules apply to the women.

            If it means winning all titles during your tenure so maybe Velvet McIntyre might be the first Grand Slam Champion as she won all the women’s titles during her time; the OG Women’s title & Women’s Tag title.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Mickie could’ve been too if she won the NXT Women’s Championship. :(

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        But some people don’t count NXT so she still could.

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          I think NXT should count. Anyone who wins all three will be a triple crown champ.

          • Maddox

            NXT doesn’t count

  • Len

    I’m happy with outcome of the match. Alexa vs Natalya would have been a snooze fest.

  • Randall

    They really need to turn her heel again. She’s boring as a face! But nevertheless congrats!

    • Joseph

      Won’t happen anytime soon.

  • Kat Love

    WWE better be smart and not let Alexa beat Charlotte this Sunday.

  • conan_kun

    Look like they haven’t confirmed that it’s Natalya taking Charlotte’s spot yet
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8bf7bf107a1ca01e55e1609fa086a4ec7df4bf370e63d723a80311b1f0777c78.jpg

    • Kat Love

      Yes then Paige!!!!

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      If it was Nattie I think they would have just said so. Hopefully it’s Paige.

      Or it would be awesome if Emma’s release was a work and she shows up on Smackdown, but that’s just me dreaming :(

      • conan_kun

        Or NXT woman who didn’t win NXT women title at Takeover like Ember, Nikki or Peyton.

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          Oh true.

        • IconicTrio

          I don’t see them bringing my girl up without Billie too. I’d prefer Paige atm, there’s nothing there for any NXT girls atm.

      • Jo9834

        It will be Paige (Gail Kim would be boss though), Natalya would not be a surprise and the WWE tends to deliver when it comes to surprises, minus the whole Jason Jordan thing.

    • #FlairfortheGold

      I predict Charlotte will

    • Typical Heel

      Obvi Paige

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Charlotte and Alexa had some decent matches on NXT, hopefully they continue that Sunday.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      The roles were reversed though. Alexa’s heel style against a babyface Charlotte is a recipe for disaster. We’ll see though..

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        You are right! Both are actually at their weakest in the roles they are in now.

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          I’d actually love to see them pull a double turn with them like they did with Del Rio/Dolph Ziggler a few years ago. Then have Carmella come cash in on Alexa. Would be a great way to get sympathy for Alexa.

          • Maddox

            If they turn her face, then which major heel does Raw have except for Nia Jax?

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            They should turn Sasha. Both she and Alexa need it badly. Mickie could turn as well. And Asuka is basically a tweener.

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            Omg that sounds better than whatever WWE might end up doing.

        • Joseph

          Yea but that was 3 and a half years ago. Both ladies have more time under their belts. Charlotte has figured out how to be a face now and Alexa knows how to be a bitch.

  • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

    WE LOVE A FUCKING QUEEN!!!!! Before there was a goddess Raw had a Queen!!!! Yaaaaaaaas! Drag herrrrrr!
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/db2d4aebf5a3bc62b6642f8d5f4b85281353ae37b7c24f75a264f493519f8e52.gif

    • #FlairfortheGold

      Alexa? Asuka? Sasha? We don’t know them??

      • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

        Girl they can’t sit with us

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    I’m upset I can’t see Lana get dragged til tomorrow! I feel like going to sleep and not waiting up for WWE to post it.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      It really was fucking hilarious. I couldn’t take the rest of the show seriously after that lol

    • tstumo

      Google watch wrestling. the dragging took place at the end of the night lol

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I ended up watching it. Lana looked so helpless!

  • Shakaib Iftikhar

    Sad for Natalya, she never got to shine due to poor booking

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Who ever thought she’d get what she did though? I’m just happy she got a Women’s title reign at all. I can’t complain.

      • E-Force

        It’s just an excuse to say hey you stop complaining bc you never thought she’d be champion again someday.

  • conan_kun
    • Jo9834

      Heel Becky is long overdue, I want her to turn and rip the entire division a new one.

    • Shan

      I’ma need Becky to stop being so nice and start stomping these women.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      After getting defeated by Charlotte, maybe Blissly be reborn as her former blue basic self.

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown
    • Welchy

      Foh

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      I don’t understand why she’s never tried this on a standing opponent. They just have to lean forward a little bit. It would look sick..

      • E-Force

        Ikr and it’d be way more impactful, natural selection is not a finisher worthy move

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          That’s where most of the women right now are severely lacking. Other than everyones submissions, none of the “impact” moves are any good. Natural Selection, Bayley to Belly, Alexa’s Basic DDT, etc all really suck.

          Paige and Mickie are really the only two with great finishers.

          • Omar Zaal

            Mostly has to do with the gruesome schedule I guess, doing impactful finishers week by week could be risky, but at the same time every wrestlers should have a super ultra finisher (risky) used on special occasions kind of like Street Fighters IV

          • Randall

            That natural selection move is weak as hell. That’s my issue with almost all of the women these days. None of their finishers are interesting what so ever.

          • wysna

            And Mickie isn’t even using her’s that much since she returned smh.

      • wysna

        Could it be because it’s too risky? I mean, she’s a tall girl who doesn’t strike me as someone who can jump too high. All the rotations on her corkscrew moonsault seem to come from the fact that she leverages her athleticism to power through them. Either that or it would look a little too much like John Cena’s booger version of the move.

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    Wow Charlotte is a 7 Time Champion!
    1 time NXT Women’s Champ
    1 time and last recorded Divas Champ
    4 time Raw Women’s Champ
    1 time SD Women’s Champ
    Congrats ChaCha!!!

    She’s already HOF worthy with these accolades.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Why are they saying it’s 6 then? Oh wait nvm they’re saying 6 time women’s champ.

      • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

        WWE being petty in not including the NXT title, this ain’t FCW no more WWE! Wake up Vince

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          Well it makes sense to do it the way they are doing it. It just slipped my mind when reading it.

        • Maddox

          Lol, it’s like saying Big E and Bo Dallas are former world champions. It’s still there developmental so it doesn’t count

        • NoWayHoeSay

          No they arnt including the divas title

          • They’re actually counting her Diva’s Title reign as a Women’s Championship reign; which is also why Mickie is considered to be a 6 time Women’s Champion.

      • NoWayHoeSay

        Because that’s Nikkis thing

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      Trish is shaking… she mine as well return and become an 8x Champion. Scr

    • ???

      Don’t forget she’s the first ever champion for the new women’s championship and the start of the new era !!

    • Typical Heel

      + very 1st Raw Women’s Champ
      + 1st PPV main event
      + 1st Hell In A Cell
      + 1st Ironman Match on the main roster
      + 1st women to put someone through the announce table
      + longest Reigning Raw Women’s Champ

      Altogether, Charlotte is the most decorated women in WWE history, even more than Trish and Mickie now, and she still has so much more to give

    • wysna

      And to top it all off–SHE ACTUALLY DESERVED A GREAT MAJORITY OF WHAT SHE’S GOTTEN. Solid wrestler, good talker, great actress, Queen.

  • GEO
    • GOD STRATUS•

      ????

  • Welchy

    Alexa wasn’t in a match at all this week and bitches still taking shots at her like just congratulate Charlotte and stfu.

  • Vid Trim

    This just makes SS teams even more unbalanced considering that SD just lost their biggest star. I lowkey wish Paige would replace Char but that would mean doing Natalya kinda dirty.

  • Michael Burmy

    Best part about this is that Nao’s record is safe for now…as long as Charlotte drops it before April 3, 2018 (coincidentially, the Smackdown before WrestleMania) I’m good.

    • Welchy

      This ain’t about Naomi.

      • Michael Burmy

        If it’s about the Smackdown Women’s Championship, then its longest-reigning holder, by definition, cannot be a non-sequitir.

        Trust me, it’s coming back where it belongs soon enough.

        • Welchy

          You want Naomi to beat Charlotte?

          • Michael Burmy

            Perhaps…more than likely, Carmella’s gonna cash in Money in the Bank at Survivor Series…so it’ll be her that Nao beats to get the title back…don’t act like Nao vs. Charlotte vs. Becky vs. (Paige, perhaps?) for the title at Mania won’t be a CLASSIC.

          • Welchy

            Mhm that match would be good but Naomi doesn’t have to be champion for it to happen

          • Michael Burmy

            You see all that glow-in-the dark custom belts and other such merch fans have to make at home. That’s money NOT going to WWE because they won’t capitalize and make their own official merch (and apparently they may have put the kabosh on Mattel making the glow belt because of their desire to make “history.”)

            Her as champ is best for business…a shame the front office doesn’t see that.

          • Robann

            I would like that. Cleanly. Sucks that their last bout was interrupted because it was a good ass match.

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      I think Charlotte will be walking into WM as champion. I think Carmella should do a Seth Rollins like cash in at Mania.

      • Michael Burmy

        Let’s hope not (for the reasons I listed above)…but if so, then *sighs* I guess we’ll always have ‘Mania 33.

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          33 already happened?

          • Michael Burmy

            1. Yes.
            2. Yes it did…so even if that record DOES get broken (let’s hope not) we’ll at least have that to look back to.

  • 3???????

    Poor nattie

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      I don’t get how anyone can say poor Nattie after this. It’s the same as people whining after Naomi lost the belt. Who would have ever thought either of them would have finally got the belt after so long? Be grateful, look at poor Emma..

      • Michael Burmy

        But with one difference…Nao will be champ again sooner than you think…this was probably Nattie’s last time holding any title before she retires.

        • Allyn

          ? yeah This was probably it for Nattie

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          It’s still more than I ever thought she’d get. I’m happy with it. Nattie is great in the ring, but she’s really not someone you can book a long title reign around. Her mic skills/character work are probably the worst out of any woman on the roster unfortunately.

        • Robann

          Exactly. And I would’ve thought the same for Naomi as well until I saw that they had her title customized and it was (for the most part) WIDELY praised. That’s when I realized the company sees something in her and maybe she will be champ again.

          This is probably it for Nattie smh.

      • 3???????

        I said what I said , naomi and nattie both had shitty reigns .

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          It’s Smackdown, everyone has shit reigns..

      • Robann

        We’re happy that they were champs but the last thing you should be saying is for us to settle with just them “being champs”. They had shitty reigns, and Nattie’s was worse. Like this is a constant problem the company has and Charlotte having the title again won’t make it better on its own.

  • ralfikh

    Its sad that Brie didnt win her “dedicated” storyline match for DB.

  • Allyn

    I’m not mad char won but did she really need another title reign??? Natties booking wasn’t the best but I wanted her to at least get some sort of a decent feud so this loss would have been meaningful, Im excited to see char as a face champ on the main roster though so let’s hope her title reign is at least entertaining.

    • Michael Burmy

      Either she turns heel mid-reign or Carmella cashes in after her match vs. Alexa…

      • Allyn

        Ooooo yeah I like both of these options

      • Joseph

        She isn’t turning heel for a long while and i think she isn’t going to Mania as champ if we are doing the 4HW vs. 4HW.

  • Vito

    im glade she won, it was a solid match, and i kind of missed her with a title. also her vs alexa is gonna be much more interesting! nattie is boring tbh

  • BC

    They gave noooo fucks about Nattie’s reign smh.

    This was a lame feud which they could have done more with but I felt like the writers were dying to put it on Charlotte already lol.

    • PeppermintButler

      Sad but true… part of me hoping Nattie woud retain and beat Bliss and become a cocky champion

  • Maddox

    Would it have been better if this was the original match up and was heavily promoted? Anyway, time to put to final horsewomen to pasture

    • Gail-Rollins Fan
    • #ROSEARMY

      See, the thing is, a Kill Bill-esque set up founded on someone taking out each Horsewoman could have been compelling storytelling. But to facilitate that, the matches with Becky, Bayley, Sasha and Charlotte would need to be firmly in the epic territory. And if Alexa couldn’t get there with the first three, I just don’t see it happening fourth time lucky.

      Of course, that isn’t to say WWE will resist favouring Alexa once again. It’s just that, when Alexa gets to cut her excellent promo about dismantling four women who will be remembered as iconic figures in women’s wrestling years and years down the line, we won’t have much to remember how she actually managed it.

      • I just salivated at the thought of this angle given to somebody like Asuka.

        • #ROSEARMY

          Asuka was the first woman who entered my mind too.

          Followed by Toni Storm, Io Shirai and Bianca Belair in that order.

      • Damn!

        I wouldn’t mind if they gave Asuka Victoria’s list gimmick cause it was pretty badass

        • #ROSEARMY

          … plus it would play into Asuka’s laconic assassin mystique, all the while functioning the type of dream matches people have imagined since she debuted.

          That’s not to say the Horsewomen need to go down easily, though. Each match would ideally be PPV booked, with perhaps Asuka taking a title from the last woman she faces.

      • Maddox

        If Asuka who can have epic matches with those three got that storyline, people would complain that she is burying everyone

        • #ROSEARMY

          They might, but they would be incorrect.

    So happy for her!!

  • Maddox

    The pic really looks good tho, both seem to be smirking ?

  • Hopefully we’ll get some physically impressive matches now that she’s champ. Nattie is capable too.. sucks we didn’t see her fight..well anyone really

  • E-Force

    As much as I want Charlotte to have a 5-star match with every girl of SD, I’ll be really disappointed to see that she had opportunities to really show out and shine while Nattie and Naomi’s reigns felt like an afterthought and they were held back for real

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Conspiracy ??

    • Joseph

      Nah i thought Naomi did great in her reign like not every reign can be perfect.

      • Chargod Flair #5x

        Tbh looking back Naomi had a much better reign than Nattie’s. But then again Naomi’s reign was after Wrestlemania and that whole Summer. She had the more exciting PPVs to look forward too. But still Naomi did her thing.

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      Naomi was a much more afterthought than Nattie… Naomi went without being the main feud until Summerslam.

  • This was expected, it’s been foreshadowed for months. Congrats Queen https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c2d3d1b87700969426c996728481bf6277ce79161d3198f2a9496afaa71f19b1.gif

  • StraightFire

    Welp after tonight Charlotte is definitely winning.

  • Jo9834

    Charlotte always delivers as a champion, the matches, promo’s , storylines all seem to improve. I feel bad for Nattie, her reign kind of came and went with a slight fizz, she had the ball and didn’t run with it, her matches were lackluster and promo’s were cringe unfortunately.

    I hope Charlotte , Paige, Becky and Naomi can really jumpstart the blue brands womens division with some great matches. Smackdown is still YET to have a 5 star womens match that steals the show, tonight was great but by Charlottes standards, it was good.

  • #ROSEARMY

    Although not entirely unpredictable, it’s hard to argue this being Charlotte’s best match in a while and decidedly the strongest SD women’s title match since its inception. Something tells me that a certain Miss Hell in Boots might be taking her spot in Team Smackdown, too…

    Also, after threatening to break her arm, was I the only one thirsting for Becky Lynch vs Asuka? Come thru Becky, Celtic Warrior Princess.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    I was desperate for Alexa to come out while Charlotte was chatting shit

  • -V

    Goddess what? Let’s see if they will make her lose to the the tragic DDT / women’s slap on Sunday..

  • Nicola Byrne

    3 and half year Charlotte has won 7 championship took Trish 6 year.

    • ???

      What’s wrong with that ? Maybe they started to give women more reigns , if a male superstar can be 20x champion and both genders are equal now then nothing wrong with Charlotte breaking Trish’s record .. seriously until when we’ll stick to Trish’s unbeatable record ? She already been the woman of WWE for like a decade .

    • Monkey Tennis

      True. But to be fair, one of Trish’s reigns was for almost a year and a half whilst she was out injured and still holding the title.

    • Moan of ‘Licia

      Well if Trish was the daughter o..

    Nattie’s reign was the worst. Happy we have a new champ. Sad cause is Charlotte again. I mean, she ties Trish’ championship, surpass Mickie’s… I would like to see Carmella cash in at SS.

  • Geo14

    You deserve it, queen!

    But Alexa is gonna destroy you!

  • Also.

    Part of me is a little bit sad I won’t get the Charlotte/Asuka face-off I wanted. I really can’t wait for this match.

    • #ROSEARMY

      I kind of think that Asuka’s arrival has been diminished thanks to the SS format. The idea of her interacting with the likes of Sasha and Becky without any sense of urgency feels like a waste.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Definitely. She should have been the wild card, one that you can’t predict her move. Now she’s just among the rest in the team and it’s… blah.

      • It does. I wish the other girl could at least pretend to be intimidated when she’s near.

    • MK126

      She looked at no one but Asuka… completely badass

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      Foreshadowing perhaps?

      • Oh god I hope so.

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          I want Sasha vs Asuka more tbh.

  • Summer_Slay

    Well imo they should’ve had nattie drop the title after SURVIVOR because now they dont have anything for Charlotte except Carmella but I don’t see her cashing in so fast.

    • Gerg

      She could feud with tamina/lana. Not the greatest option but this ravishing revolution is suppose to lead to a title shot unless they dropped it

  • Robann

    Obviously predicted and unsurprising, but the match was alright. I’m hoping Carmella will cash this damn briefcase in soon though lol.

  • IconicTrio

    Thank god. How all round terrible would Alexa Vs Natalya be?

    I don’t hate Alexa but part of me really wants to see Charlotte do a 2016-Charlotte on her ass and bury her 60 feet under.

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      Alexa vs Nattie wouldn’t sell. That’s a match that could have happened on SD last year. But then again Naomi vs Nattie was the Summerslam match. But at least that was a title match so it was a high stakes match. Also, Alexa and Nattie are both heels so that doesn’t help much. A champion vs champion match like Alexa vs Charlotte is a much better matchup because it’s literally the two faces of both divisions going head to head. Let’s face it Charlotte would be the face of SD with or without the title. Ever since Charlotte stepped foot on SD the focus has mainly been on her and the question was always “When will charlotte be champion?”.

  • Nathan

    This was a good call. Long live the queen!

  • Joseph

    Charlotte is over as a face whether you like it or not. She fix whatever she did wrong in 2015 and also helps that crowd know her better. It was a great match, great promo and a great moment with Ric and the end of it.

    • MK126

      Her face run this time is WAY better than her face run in 2015. I think what was wrong during her prior run was that she was just using the Flair name without building her own identity. Her heel turn MADE her and now that she’s loved by the fans they cheer her for her and not just because Ric was at her side

      • Joseph

        Yea that is totally true thats why you saw WWE do the same with Carmella. They turn Carmella heel quickly after only being a face on the main roster for a month.

    • ???

      Nothing wrong with her being face , it just she’s way better as a heel .

      • Joseph

        You can’t be a heel forever this era of wrestling.

  • I’m just glad they gave natalya a title run she definitely deserved it

    • MK126

      Sadly she really didn’t do much with it. Held it for almost 3 months and only had 2 proper title defenses and no memorable feud

      • Unfortunately that’s due to the writing team though not natalya

        • MK126

          Oh I know

  • MK126

    I was looking at the womens title history on wikipedia to see how long Nattie held the title but also clicked on Naomi’s page and saw this: “Pro Wrestling Illustrated
    Ranked No. 1 of the top 50 female wrestlers in the PWI Female 50 in 2018.” LMFAO yall Naomi
    fans aint slick

  • ???

    Well deserved !

    Now Charlotte is the only woman to hold the NXT, Divas , Raw and Smackdown championships !

    No woman can break this record but Paige since she won the NXT and the retired Divas Championship .

  • Marlon Eric

    Natalya vs Alexa Bliss was a little one sided, since Nattie is a technical monster, but Charlotte Vs Alexa? This isn’t even close. Usually when a lesser talented wrestler is in a match with a more experienced, more accomplished wrestler, they can be carried into a good match. I never got that with Alexa though. Like she’s either sliding down or already peaked. :- I don’t get it.

  • It

    She needs to go heel now that she has the title… she needs to get her dominance back… that’s where Charlotte is good.

    • Izzy4lw

      Charlotte is at her best as a heel for sure, and honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if she goes heel soon – though the way it looks, I’d be more inclined to think they’ll have Carmella eventually cash in on her to ignite their feud… or Becky may go heel against a face Charlotte. My only worry is a heel Charlotte will give us only recycled feuds- if she’s heel, she can feud with Becky (already done) Nikki Bella when she returns (already done) or…. Naomi, which may be the only fresh feud she’d have as a heel.

  • Dylan Gutierrez

    WWE just released Ellsworth so the idea of him interfering is out the window.

    • Michael Max

      Him getting beat up by all the Smackdown women was def. his swan song. He served little purpose and he was def. taking away from the women’s division as opposed to adding to it in my opinion.

  • Monkey Tennis

    So we’re still poised for the potential return of a long absent wrestler on sunday. Certainly the announcement during Smackdown (post Charlotte’s victory) that Team Blue now had a slot to fill – rather than simply saying Nattie was automatically on the team – suggests that Paige might be a’comin’.

    As for Nattie, well she could interfere in either match. Attacking Charlotte and costing her the match would be just about the only plausible way Alexa can win. Alternatively, if Paige does return, Nattie could attack her for ‘stealing’ her spot in the 5 on 5 match – which would also serve as a way to eliminate Paige without derailing her big return too much. Cos with Asuka on Team Red, it’s hard to think of any scenario where they lose.

    • NoWayHoeSay

      Ok cool so Nattie interferes in Alexa Charlotte letting Alexa win, Dana attacks Asuka(which gives Asuka her first feud) Paige then can get the win for smackdown. Deal

    • Michael Max

      Only scenario with RAW losing is if they count out Asuka, which I’m not sure if they’d go that route. I see them having Asuka as the sole survivor tbh.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    OMG I am soooooo shocked I absolutely can’t believe Charlotte won the title in Charlotte……. And YAY Charlotte is finally the champ and tied Trish’s title record in just 2.5 years……. Does my sarcasm come through the keyboard???? ?

  • Joseph

    I would image it was an emotional reunion backstage after she won with Becky, Bayley and Sasha. Even tho all 4HW are faces they had to keep some type of Kayfabe for the whole RAW vs. SD stuff and not post on social media. If you saw the ride along with Sasha and Bayley they talk about how much they miss having Charlotte and Becky around. They mention they want to team up with them.

  • Michael Max

    Out of all the SD women’s title reigns, Nattie’s really felt the most pointless of them all. Which is sad, because she deserved better. But it seems like they put way more effort in the contenders then the champion, and that’s basically been since it started.

  • willh

    Charlotte is a 7x champion (former NXT, last Divas Champ, 4x Raw Women’s and now SmackDown Women’s) and she hasn’t even been here 5 years!!!! Trish Stratus is SHAKING!!!

  • Tonx

    If Alexa beats Charlotte I give up. The girl is fire on the mic but constantly turns in meh matches. I think the best thing for her would be to turn face. She can be a snarky face like Trish, and she can add those flashy moves back into here move set and not use the most basic finishers in existence.

    Also I’m really excited for the possibilities of a Becky/Charlotte feud! Their matches can help the SDL title match the Raw title in terms of great, memorable matches

    • Welchy

      Payback – good
      No Mercy – good
      Summer slam – decent
      GBOF – great
      TLC – great
      Y’all really be talking out y’all ass. The “meh matches” shit is just a trend with y’all DD users and it’s constantly proved wrong.

      • NoWayHoeSay

        But they stan Kelly Kelly ??

        • Welchy

          honestly… not even saying is the best. but they really ignore the fact that she is indeed capable in the ring and does have a good resume of good matches. some of the better matches that happened this year, included bliss, whether people want to admit it or not. GBOF, NM & TLC are some of them.
          this push got them blinded with hate tbh, its annoying.

          • NoWayHoeSay

            I don’t even like her that much but I can see she’s good! Tbh all the hate it makin me like her! And so everyone should hate her she is a little bitch heel so in that case she’s doing her job role correct

      • NoWayHoeSay

        Personally Alexa is really good she’s a 6 in the ring but then Brie is only a 5 and Kelly a 3

      • Tonx

        Actually it’s not, she barely performs any wrestling moves in matches and her finishers are the most basic moves. I wouldn’t consider any of her matches great, and I like Alexa. I like Alexa, I really do, but her matches are meh, and average at best. It’s sad really, because down in NXT she’s shown she can pull off a lot of other moves, but since she’s been on the main roster any match she’s been in has been meh. I understand y’all want to support her as fans, but she just doesn’t stack up in the ring with the other girls on the roster

  • Joseph

    I will never understand Alexa hate on here its basically the same thing you guys complain about Charlotte last year.

    • Michael Max

      Personally, I don’t hate Alexa, though I do feel she was put in a spot that she wasn’t really ready for. I think she needed more time developing before being turned into the big star she’s become.

      • Joseph

        I can’t blame her for that WWE just shovel that on her. It was basically sink or swim for her.

        • NoWayHoeSay

          I think Alexa is doing well

        • Michael Max

          And in a lot of ways I think shes sunk, but yeah, I don’t blame her either. I just think they put too much on her too soon.

      • Nathan

        I agree and think this can stand for a lot of the women people bash. The likes of Nia, Dana, Alexa and Carmella all get a lot of hate but they were all called up earlier than they should have been. Granted Alexa is the best example but it does still apply to the others imo.

        • Michael Max

          I think that after the brand split, they were desperate to make new stars (hence Alexa’s sky rocket push) because at that point they’d really only made stars out of the horsewomen and the rest were just kinda.. filler.

    • MK126

      The difference between Char’s hate last year and Alexa’s hate was the hot potato between Char and Sasha. Char winning the title 4 times (three of them in the same feud) was everyone’s issue. Char has a number of excellent matches under her belt because of these reigns. Alexa on the other hand pulls off subpar matches and what she capable of doesn’t equal to the amount of opportunities she has received. I definitely don’t hate Alexa as I’ve always said shes a better wrestler as a face and her character work excels as a heel but because shes unable to put the two together she doesn’t deserve to be a 4x womens champion

      • Joseph

        Dude i fucking love fairy Alexa Bliss i miss that version of her so much. Her and Bayley could have easily been the most lovable female tag team in WWE or in any promotion.

        • MK126

          Glitter Glitz Sparkle Bliss was iconic. I feel like GGSB and 5FoF definitely could have been alter egos instead of this goddess mess shes stuck in. “Queen”, “Goddess”, “Boss”, “Princess of” means nothing when there’s more than one person who’s basically proclaiming to be THAT bitch lol

    • Welchy

      Oop

    • PhiPhiBanks

      The biggest difference between Charlotte and Alexa’s reigns is that Alexa just isn’t good enough to pull off her role.

      Alexa is good on the mic however she is basic in the ring. Charlotte’s reign in 2016 saw the best series of women’s matches in WWE history. The quality while Alexa has been on top has dropped considerably.

      Alexa has been misused by creative/management. She could be a good champion, just with a different character.

      • Joseph

        I feel like WWE toned down Alexa as a main roster heel.

    • Nathan

      I see where you’re coming from, I for one try not to bash any of the women. That being said Charlotte had so many memorable matches which made her reigns stand out. Alexa on the other hand hasn’t, and that maybe down to what creative will allow her to do, but it doesn’t change the fact her reigns are lack luster and forgettable.

    • ???

      The problem isn’t with either Charlotte or Alexa .

      The problem is all the creative’s team , both women are talented but they stuck in a horrible booking , but Charlotte was capable to put a 5 stars match with Sasha .. something Alexa still can’t do , Alexa only shines when she holds the mic .

      Charlotte was and still champion material but her booking was bad .

      Alexa was and still not ready to be champion yet she booked horribly , if they at least booked her right then I wouldn’t mind her as a champion.

  • I knew she was going to win. Now she only has to lose it back and regain it to tie Trish. No way they would’ve let Mickie done it before Ric’s offspring.

  • Moan of ‘Licia

    This is a history making moment. Charlotte is now a 6 time champion, second to Trish.

    1: Trish Stratus
    2: Mickie James and Charlotte
    3: Melina
    4: Lita, Moolah, Sasha Banks, Beth Phoenix, Alexa Bliss, Michelle
    5: Ivory, Alundra Blayze, AJ, Eve

    • Welchy

      legends

  • Dunk

    Very emotional moment! She does deserve it

  • I loved the match even though the predictable result.

  • Scarlet Letter

    Even though, I really didn’t want Charlotte to win the title, because I wanted Natalya to have a good lengthy reign. I can’t say it isn’t well deserved. I would like Natalya to win it back sometime in the future. I’d also like Becky Lynch to come back into the title picture.
