After reportedly suffering multiple injuries at the hand of the Riott Squad two weeks ago, SmackDown Superstar Naomi made her return to the blue on tonight’s (Dec 12th) SmackDown Live.

The night saw Charlotte Flair take on Ruby Riott, just days before Flair defends the SmackDown Women’s Title at Clash of Champions against Natalya in a Lumberjack match.

Flair began the contest by tossing Riott across the ring all while keeping a close eye on the rest of the Riott Squad (Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan) who were at ringside. A small distraction from Logan gives Riott a chance to land some offense on Flair by sending her face first to the turnbuckles.

Switching gears, Riott locked in a grounded headlock but Flair managed to break free by backing Riott to a corner. Riott reapplied the submission after pulling Flair by the hair and taking her back down. Riott climbed the turnbuckle for an aerial attack but Flair was able to counter by getting the knees up.

When the action spilled to the outside, Flair began to fight off the Riott Squad and even took a swing at Natalya who was sitting at commentary. Natalya struck back, thus ending that match via disqualification.

The Riott Squad would then set their sight on Flair, using the numbers game to their advantage against the SmackDown Women’s Champion by tossing her to the barricades and steel steps. As the group began to set up the steels steps over Flair to cause more damage, Naomi bursted out to make the save, landing a double dropkick to Logan and Morgan and a Rear End to Riott.

As the Riott Squad retreated to the back, they attacked by the rest of the Lumberjacks to Sunday’s SmackDown Women’s Title in Carmella, Lana and Tamina.

What did you think of this week’s episode of SmackDown? Are you excited to see Naomi return? What do you think will happen at Clash of Champions? Let us know in the comments below!

    Naomi returns just 2 weeks after she suffered “a cervical strain, a right-sided shoulder separation and a few facial contusions”. She took out Riott Squad and sent them fleeing all by herself is not a good sign for Riott Squad

    • OJ Von Erich

      These gifs got me prayin’ for another Naomi push!

      • ssilva872

        Naomi for champ after Ruby. #3x

        • conan_kun

          Then heel Becky after Naomi.

          • ssilva872

            Yes!

        • Catalina

          Ruby champion? Oh honey, Ruby needs to stay away from that champion and wait in line. After Tamina, Carmella, Naomi and Nikki. wwe has been going in order since the debut of the women’s division in wwe but since Nikki left they skipped her and past her to charlotte then Tamina debuted and took Eva’s place in line. Carmella is obviously next but Tamina might get the title before Carmella.

          • L.S #PushBillieKay

            Tamina?? Hahahahaha

          • Catalina

            What’s funny? Girl gone. Tamina deserves a title like everyone else fuck. Root for women not laugh in there face. I don’t like some women but if they win a title i’m not going be upset it’s people more deserving than some though. So once again what’s funny?

          • John Finnie

            Go you…. i love tamina & yes she may not be the best BUT its freaking writers qho decide who gets the title i mean carmella (to me) isnt good but i dont deny she will get a title run just like tamina should

      • Summer_Slay

        Didnt she had enough for this year to say the least her feud with Cam flopped, her heel turn flopped, her title reigns flopped. Eek, thank God for the iconic entrance and sis being a humble legend or i would not be stanning at all.

        • Robann

          Nah she hasn’t. Her Cam feud flopped because of Cam (no shade I love her), her heel turn was overshadowed by the 4HW coming in and taking the spotlight off of pretty much every MR girl except for the Bellas, and every single woman’s title reign on SDL and Raw flopped so that’s not her fault. Nao is one of the only ones who made her reigns worth talking about even with shitty feuds because of her glow title. And seeing how much of an overwhelming positive reaction that custom title got and how over she is now….she’s due for another GOOD title reign or two.

          • Summer_Slay

            Absolutely but not in the next half a year maybe after Carmella cashes in on Charlotte and she’s done feuding with her. Naomi can be the face to get the title from Carmella. And if Carmella actually does well as the cheating heel we all want her to be cause she’s far from a dominating power house. Naomi will get an even bigger pop.

        • Ryomi Minaj

          Girl it didn’t, Summers career flopped, that’s why her bird faced ass got FIRED

          • Summer_Slay

            naomi is uglier than summer ;3 have a nice day and keep telling yourself Naomi didnt flop like 3 times before she got the title and 2 times after she got it

          • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay

            Ok first of all you only say uglier to someone who is just plain ugly. Naomi isn’t even ugly but I guess since she isn’t a tall white blondie it counts as being ugly. Second you’re dumb racist for that why you comparing her to an animal because of her ethnic roots and size of her butt? Like it’s people like you that make this site so hard to enjoy then you’re one of the people who says you’re tired of everyone disrepecting your fav

          • Summer_Slay

            CALLING ME RACIST WHEN YOU DONT KNOW SHI7 ABOUT ME ITS OK, DO IT ALL YOU WANT SIS, she called out summer calling her a birdface so i only did the same with naomi FAIR PLAY, OPEN SEASON, she stsrted it and i am not racist one bit but you know if thats the only thing you can do, call me a racist, do it, im bulgarian sis, do some reaserch we’ve been slaves for 150 years thanks to the muslims you aint gonna say shI7 to me about being raicst and slavery because im the only white person on this site that remotely knows how you feel about slavery but because im white its not the same correct? My great grandmothers grandmother was tied up for 2 horses and the turk soldiers let them run in different directions till she got split in 2 for hiding her child when they tried to take it away from her. But you know if you by any means want to call me a racist simply becuase i did the same as whatever that person did compare naomi to an animal please do it. I wasnt even the one to start it. Hold your grudge against the americans all you want but keep in mind that there are other people in this world and they are WHITE SHOOK OMG that has nothing to do with what americans did to you. And guess what some of them arent racist. SHOOK OMG, its so hard to believe. Ive been to the USA, the UK, other places (my job requires me to travel sometimes) and ive experienced the way they treat foreigners multiple times mostly in the UK and it sucked i get it, get over it, not everyone on this world will like you. But guess what ive also experienced a lot of positive emotions and things in all these places so im not gonna sit here and say oh the UK sucked or the USA sucked becuase you know, they dont. I just typed this to clear the air. The fact that i do not like some wrestler doesnt mean jac|<.

            ASLO ALICIA FOX, CAMERON, MISS JACKIE ARE FREAKING ICONS AND NAOMI STILL SUCKS. :) peace

          • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay

            I could care less if you think Naomi sucks your opinion is your opinion but you literally compared her to an animal based on her looks which is not ok which is something people like us are compared to all the damn time. Are white people called animals or compared to birds to rascally profile them? Oh. And you saying the the other person started it doesn’t mean you had to stoop to low level like them also

          • Ryomi Minaj

            Awww, summer looks cute here, you mad sis?

          • Summer_Slay

            im beyond calm, its usually very hard to make me angry

    • Jo9834

      Naomi looking like she could legit beat up most of the womens roster with her fists alone.

    • ???

      Let Naomi be the woman to hold most reigns for the Smackdown women’s championship!

  • NOT EVEN TWO WEEKS OUT AND SHE GOT THAT POP. QUEEN
    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DQ5Gx8SXcAAzX5S.jpg

  • conan_kun

    The Absolution was taken out by the entire whole roster, while Smackdown with first Charlotte beat the three up, then Naomi made them flee before they got blindsided by Carmella, Tamina and Lana. It’s partially feels like they lost a lot of faith in the Riott Squad.

    • Wicked Emma

      It’s too early to to tell.

    • Kvngbalor

      I honestly don’t think so at COC we’ll see Riot Squad get revenge and the mayhem should end with Carmella cashing in

  • OJ Von Erich

    B*tch I was feeling the Glow, no lie I had goosebumps, that was everything, that straight up double dropkick to Logan & Liv was sick & the way she just went ham on Ruby…

    WHEW MY BIH IS BACK AND WAS WELCOMED BY A POP AS USUAL!!! YASSS!

  • TabbyK

    This was done much better than Raw but I’m getting annoyed at the lack of originality. But on the bright side Naomi is back with another great return so I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with her vs Riott Squad.

    • Gerg

      I liked that SDL women showed that they are standing up against the Riott Squad while not being united like Raw. Raw women looked like a bunch of faces standing up to heels like the 2007-10 divas division use to always do.

    • perceval

      Depends on whether you consider the credibility of the heel trio to be important. It took the entire locker room to take down Absolution, so they’re still the dangerous threat. The Riott Squad was demolished by just one woman, so they’re in danger of becoming a joke. The question is now “Are they getting shipped back to NXT, already?”

      • TabbyK

        Lol I think you’re over-exaggerating a little. If they weren’t blindsided twice and just got laid out while Naomi’s music played the segment out then I would agree but that’s not at all what happened. And besides SD books all their women on the same “level” so it’s not really a big deal especially since this is all build up for their lumberjack match.

  • Jo9834

    Dear Raw creative, please take notes on how to maximise a beat down, crowd sympathy and reaction for a babyface and heel group. Naomi. Did. That.

    • perceval

      What one Raw woman should have single handedly squashed Absolution?

      • Jo9834

        Nia Jax could have easily had a break out moment like Naomi had she done something similar. She may not have had the same pop as Naomi due to her lack of speed and excitement but people would have stanned for her taking out three women.

        • Maddox

          A heel taking out a heel group? Absolutuon shouldn’t send Nia Jax through a table to make a statement

          • Robann

            I think it’ll be cool. The DollHouse and Awesome Kong tease.

      • conan_kun

        Why not Asuka but they already miss this opportunity.

  • king valor

    Naomi, Queen of Return POPS! SDL’s true secondary baby face. I swear smackdown was a renaissance for her career. I can’t wait till she’s a 3x champ.

    • ???

      And most importantly, let her have better reign and strong feuds and not like her 2nd reign when she didn’t have any feud .

  • Alejandro

    Naomi proving she is a STAR! The way she handled the Riot Squad makes me want her become a 3 time SmackDown women’s champion.

    • Gerg

      shoo First Ever 3x SD Women’s champ. I was afriad that they’d give her one reign like most women during the divas division had but now im shook

    • Summer_Slay

      Yes, and this time feud not just with Lana BUT BOTH Lana & Tamina, oh joy my dream feud, said no one ever.

      • Alejandro

        Hell no, Naomi can easily have a rivalry with Charlotte both women are the most athletic and want to prove who is the most dominant of their brand. Pretty much turn Charlotte heel and everything will fall into the right place.

        • Summer_Slay

          i mean i was sarcastic but since you need it to be pointed at you good job

          • Alejandro

            Don’t flatter me, flatter yourself… if I didn’t notice is because is really good sarcasm.

            U good asf at being sarcastic if I was as good as you my mother woulda slapped me when I was younger????

    • Jorge Hernandez Moran

      I actually think she might cause WWE is looking to marker her light up title and its better for business if she holds it when it comes out

      • Alejandro

        They should give her the title again, but it’s too early for that Charlotte won it like a month ago and she is WWE’s protege.

  • Quincio van Henningen

    It’s great that the crowd gave Naomi that considerable roar of cheers. She’s come such a far way happy for what she has accomplished. I can’t stop replaying the riot squad’s reaction and how late the gentlemen in front of them was at turning around… Man, I’m just cracking up.

  • conan_kun

    What’s a reason for nixing originally announced 6 women tag, are they realized that Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan are not ready for main roster match after their performance in 6 women tag 2 weeks ago. Now Riott Squad is almost the bust after it’s not a good look for a dominant heel group to get taken apart so easily by just one person.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      Sarah Logan is literally better than most of the girls on SD, she’s ready and they know that… Vince just likes to change plans all the time.

    • Sarah is the 2nd best wrestler of that 6 women tag, after Ruby. Maybe they cancelled it because they realized Lana, Carmella and Tamina on the same team would be a disaster and that the math would probably get no heat because they are all heels.

    • Super Mateo

      Sarah is MR ready. I just think she, Vince, and the writers need to come to a common understanding of her character. Once they’re all on the same page, Sarah will be a star.

      RIGHT TF! Hilarious seeing the same people who trashed her and blamed her crappy reigns on her suddenly calling her a “star” and claiming they missed her now.

      • #FlairfortheGold

        In my defense, i used to not like her as much back in 2014ish but ever since her Team B.A.D days, sis started to make me a believer and I was a really big stan after she won her first women’s championship

        • Typical Heel

          I always thought she had that potential, but once in Team Bad, i realized it was definitely time for WWE to start her push bc she had it going on already as a heel, but now, she has even surpassed that, she deserves every bit of success, I’m officially a fan now

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            I never bought Naomi as a heel. Queen is always smiling and a natural babyface.

        • Robann

          You got it, I respect that. It is still nice to see people finally waking tf up. We’ve been saying she had star potential (well, I have at least) since her feud with AJ. The woman got HERSELF over with a gimmick that stuck with a lot of people, one that she came up with by herself and kept pushing to let Creative give her the green light for it. She didn’t have the boost of having five star quality matches in NXT and having a good, drawn out story behind her character (no shade, i think every single woman should get the treatment the 4HW got, and I still think Nao and Sasha are two of the most over women in the company).

          Give this woman another title reign so I can see her glow title again lol

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      Damn I can give her praise don’t mean I stan

      I’m just glad they all seeing the light … or the glow.

    So, you remember when you were a kid (for those on here that still aren’t, of course!) and maybe, just sometimes, you’d need to copy your mate’s homework. But you couldn’t copy it word for word, ‘cos the teacher would clock that straight away, obviously. So instead, you’d just change a little bit here and there, reword it so it that that little bit different… ut ultimately, it would be exactly the same content as your mate’s.

    See, that’s the vibe I’m getting Smackdown creative lately. I mean, fair enough debuting their own stable that was like an ‘over there’ version of absolution was fair enough… and as a result of that, sure there was gonna be some symmetry with how those groups integrated into their respective rosters. But come on… at some point, there needs to be a bit of divergence, surely. Rather than once again Smackdown feeling like a case of Deja Raw.

    As for Naomi’s ‘big’ return, the reaction was no surprise. Naomi’s always thrived in those moments, it’s where people will always get hyped for her. With one or two exceptions, most of Naomi’s matches haven’t been classics… But when it comes to big comebacks, hot-tags, run-ins, basically any situation where she can hit the ring with a short, sharp, shocks, that’s when her spot focused style really shines. No pun intended.

  • I’m gonna stay on my own comments before reading–
    Yes, I watched, then read this a little drunk– but shit, Naomi is a motherfucking star. I miss her move-set so much and her wrestling persona is insane. She’s a real-ass star. Don’t overrate her. She is here to be the champion again. Keep Nae on SD and make her have the most SD title reigns…. Girl, you better listen, I’m not playing with you

  • Wicked Bliss

    How long was she gone to say that she “returned” but I’m happy to see her. that girl will always be the queen of brawl.

  • Smackdown ultimately does what Raw’s trying to do way better, but it is becoming quite predictable.

    • Naomi is amazing, but that doesn’t mean Smackdown is better. The NXT girls got beat up…

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Even though smackdown has become the carbon copy of raw with the womens division smackdowns content has outdone everything raw has so far. I love the new raw girls but so far the women on smackdown are showing that they can do everything the raw women can only better.

  • Super Mateo

    Naomi missed ONE week. Many may not have even noticed she was “gone.” This hardly qualifies as a return. That said, it was quite entertaining to watch her destroy Ruby.

  • Tnn Crs

    Off topic but did you see Naomi’s bandana glow gear on the teaser of Total Divas?? I’ve been waiting for this my whole life !!!

  • Trench158

    This is getting ridiculous, just pull the trigger and have Riott Squadd and Absolution work together to fend off their respective locker rooms. These similar but slightly different segments are hurting the Riott Squadd and the entire SDL women’s brand. It doesn’t matter who did it better it only matters who does it first. But if they just team them up they can side step this problem.

  • Catalina

    Naomi is over with the crowd. Give that girl the title AGAIN!

    • I didn’t realize how much of a solid champion she was until lately. Her moveset gets a crowd going and her constant change of attire is huge for women’s wrestling fans. I wish influential public figures would make a “Fashion Police” style show about the WWE women. Don’t act like you would’nt pay attention boo!

  • Whether people agree or not, I’m beyond excited that Nae is back and taking her god damn crown back as queen of motha f”kin’ Smackdown Live. Omg yes give me wrestling life bitch. Thank you for carrying SD creative!

  • The Wicked Bitch

    I’m glad she finally gets the recognition she deserves. And yess at her beating Ruby’s ass

  • MK126

    Liv and Sarah definitely felt them drop kicks when they went backstage LOL I’m really feeling TRS more than Absolution. I also don’t see how they are similar other than the obvious three girls who don’t look like they belong together who got thrown together at the same time. Absolution doesn’t seem as dangerous as TRS does which was proven by the video package done last night. TRS just wants to shake up the division and viciously take people out while Absolution is just Paige reclaiming she started the diva’s revolution. Paige is the best part of Absolution while the best part of TRS is them as a collective whole. Shit TRS even has a signature move they do which makes them look more put together than Absolution.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    MIXED TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT ANNOUNCED. 6 females 6 males from each brand will team up in elimination tournament

    • MK126

      We better get Naomi and her husband

    • Trench158

      Can you recall any Mixed Tag matches that didn’t suck? I know I can’t

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Sasha & Roman vs char & rusev. Trish/Kurt/rock vs Steph/Hunter/…..

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Sasha/Roman vs Charlotte/Rusev was cool for the star power let alone but the match it self was yet again was exactly why people are against Mixed tag matches in WWE. The men did the entire action and then the women came in at the very end of the match and it was over.

      • Gail Kim/Daniel Bryan vs Melina/Tyson Kidd
        Sable/Marc Mero vs Luna/Goldust

    • Typical Heel

      Really? Sounds like we might get a Mixed Tag Team Championship in that case

      • NoWayHoeSay

        Alexa with Braun then

  • Organization XIII
    • MK126

      That dropkick got Liu Kang SHOOK

      • Organization XIII

        Lmfaooooooo

  • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

    Glad we got this since we don’t get a redux anymore…

    So we are basically recycling the same storyline from Raw yet again? Don’t anyone come at me saying I’m complaining either because WWE ALWAYS does the multi woman thing when they know us fans are getting fed up. Yes Raw is doing great, yes Smackdown is doing great too, but we aren’t stupid!

    I will say Smackdown is doing it better. Atleast it made sense. Over on Raw both Nia and Dana had nothing to do with Absolution and made the save and is Alexa face now or what?

    It’s just all making my head spin. But come on…pull the trigger and let Carmella cash in sunday!!!

  • DivaLicious?

    Rinse and repeat????? Lazy, lazy ass booking from WWE creative again. Smackdown did it better though. Gotta give it to Naomi she put them paws on ruby. She made it look personal. I truly believe we will be seeing Naomi holding the title again down the road maybe after wrestlemania. It’s deserved??

  • jabril

    IDC Naomi slayed and she’s THAT girl . :)

  • Carolution

    that pop for naomi though. i wish naomi beat nattie for the title since charlotte is always a boring champion.

  • Danny?

    Naomi did the damn thing. QUEEN did not come to play, she came to slay…and throw them hands.

  • Welchdows Psycho

    Ok WHEW it was a good return. She did that.
    Y’all need humbling tho. Calm it down Naomob.

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      Tbh the only reason why I come off as a Naomi hater is because everyone and their Mom marks out when Naomi breathes.

    • Robann

      Nah, we were humble for 7+ years. Let us have this moment please? Lol

      • Welchdows Psycho

        Ight. Proceed

  • SashaBella

    Trash

    • KellyAJNaomiRoyce#Slay

      Bitch your style is trash buh bye now

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    That double drop kick gave me flashbacks to when Trish did it to Gail and Molly. I went nuts when i saw this as a kid. Good job Naomi!!

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v5nj2z_uoYM

  • That Naomi’s return was life tbh! Love he glowly presence.

  • Mark?

    Lol what is wrong with me? I’m becoming a Naomi fan. I was genuinely cheering her on in this segment. And a surprisingly great way to set up the lumber Jill match

    • Robann

      Come into the light, child! Don’t let the crazed NaoMob stans draw you away, they’re a small portion of her fans. We always welcome new members to the Mob lol!

  • Robann

    This should pretty much cement into Creative’s minds that Naomi needs another title run. SOON. With a feud with Ruby, or Heel Charlotte. I’ve given up on wanting Becky to turn, it ain’t happening. But WHEW the matches that Face Nao and Heel Ruby or Face Nao and Heel Char, or even Face Nao and Heel Tamina/Lana would have….shooketh.

    On another note, the attack on Riott Squad was better than Absolutions.

    • Naomi makes everything fresh and interesting. I love that the crowd is finally behind her.
