On this day in history:

December 4th, 2016 | At WWE’s TLC 2016, Carmella and Nikki Bella settled their feud of three months in a No DQ match. Carmella whipped out a Kendo Stick early on to fend off Nikki but a jumping kick off the barricade kept Nikki in the game. Thanks to a handy fire extinguisher and the Rack Attack, Nikki was able to get the victory. Post match, Carmella took to the mic to inform Nikki know that she wasn’t behind the Survivor Series attack that forced Nikki to be sidelined. Rather it was Nikki’s Total Divas co-star Natalya.

Elsewhere in the show, Becky Lynch was booked to defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Alexa Bliss in the first Women’s singles Table Match. While there were many table spots teased throughout the match, the winning spot came after Alexa dodged a kick from Becky and send the champion through a table via power bomb through to win her first SmackDown Women’s Championship.

What are your memories of this moment?

    I honestly thought that those 2 matches with the women were disappointing. Especially the championship match.
    Alexa and Becky have very little to no chemistry together.

  • Iconic feuds. I’m so glad Alexa’s reign of terror humbled the aggravating HW smarks.

      Honestly same lol it’s been funny to see them try and tear her apart but my girl keeps getting all these titles and they keep going into irrelevancy (read Pam and a bit of Sasha) lol

        And Charlotte about 3 months ago.
        Thanks to daddy, she’s back on the spotlight, if only pam Sasha and Becky had the same.

        • #FlairfortheGold

          Yes at Becky. Sasha had her title reign this year and has been featured prominently, but she has been interesting. Pam, No. Keep her

      Horrible fueds tbh yikes. They did Becky dirty. Becky deserves better. She literally a younger Nattie tbh and why did the every second SD feud focus on Nikki Bella?! She should have been rotated out during each outside feud. Not kept in each one. Nikki vs Carmella, Nikki vs Nattie, Nikki vs Maryse. Looking at you John Cena!


    On one hand, a very wise decision to capitalize on Alexa’s hot start. She was killing it on SD even since she got to showcase her character work and mic skills and she was getting over quickly so that was a good move in that sense.

    On the other hand, this would mean that we would have to settle to this kind of in-ring performances. This match was blah. That’s as simple as it gets. Plus, let’s not forget to mention how Becky was booked so weak leading up to this match and in most of this feud (but that has been the standards when to comes Alexa’s opponents).

    The less I talk about this sorry No DQ match, the better…

    Becky deserved better than to lose to 5ft of Nothing can’t take a table’s mess match

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      This. Becky was the first ever SD women’s champ but her reign was horrible and made her look weak af dropping to Bliss.

  • TheRealest #ItsBossTime

    Both matches were so disappointing. It’s sad that Smackdown was having some of the better storylines yet the matches could never really live up to them. This should have also been Alexa’s chance to show out yet we’re still waiting.

  • BeenAFan98

    Back when Smackdown live had the better storylines but the matches didn’t live up to part.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Why the hell were they putting Bliss in these matches?! Smh Tables and cages and etc

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    Its December 2017 and Bliss is still champ and has been in the title scene since…Looking at you Vince. Her mics are great but can’t help her deliver a 2 star or higher match!
