Smackdown Discussion Post: February 20th, 2018

Charlotte Flair has been having her problems with The Riott Squad the past few weeks. It is culminating in a 6 woman tag team match tonight. Will Flair’s team come out on top or will the Riott Squad pick up some momentum?

Read WWE‘s preview for tonight’s show below:

“Charlotte Flair’s quest for payback on The Riott Squad will explode tonight when the SmackDown Women’s Champion teams up with Becky Lynch and Naomi to battle Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan on SmackDown LIVE.

The Riott Squad left Charlotte unconscious for the first time in her career, nearly costing The Queen her title. Though Flair did not lose the championship, she vowed to get retribution on her attackers. She walked into the lion’s den, facing Liv Morgan by herself with Riott & Logan on the outside. When the other two Riott Squad members were ejected from ringside, Charlotte earned the victory, then made her intentions clear afterward, saying “one down, two to go.”

One week later, she took on Logan, this time with Lynch and Naomi in her corner. With the odds evened, The Riott Squad did not meddle in the match, and Flair picked up another win.

In a video posted to Ruby Riott’s Twitter, The Riott Squad issued the challenge for a six-woman showdown, saying that it’s only a matter of time before Flair’s whole world crumbles.

After Smackdown, tune into Facebook Watch for this week’s episode of WWE’s Mix Match Challenge where the team of Bobby Roode and Charlotte Flair take on Apollo and Nia Jax.

Tonight, United States Champion Bobby Roode and SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair take on the formidable tandem of Titus Worldwide’s Apollo and Nia Jax in the final first-round matchup of WWE Mixed Match Challenge.

Tonight, United States Champion Bobby Roode and SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair take on the formidable tandem of Titus Worldwide’s Apollo and Nia Jax in the final first-round matchup of WWE Mixed Match Challenge.

Last night, a Facebook exclusive video revealed that both teams are extremely confident heading into tonight’s explosive contest.

Since emerging in WWE, Charlotte Flair has surpassed every expectation, proving her genetic superiority as the daughter of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair by competing in groundbreaking matches and laying claim to four Raw Women’s Championships, a Divas Championship and now the SmackDown Women’s Title. She is the perfect partner for the up-and-coming Roode, the fighting United States Champion whose dynamic personality, obvious skill and confident demeanor promise to bring him greatness on the blue brand and beyond. Though it’s true that ‘Glorious with Flair’ has yet to perfect Roode’s ‘Woo,’ there is a clear reason they were the first combination selected by SmackDown General Manager Danial Bryan to represent Team Blue. This is SmackDown LIVE’s team to beat.

On the other side of the ring stands Apollo. And like the god of the Sun and light that is his namesake, this Superstar has never shined so bright as he has since aligning himself with Titus Worldwide, a unique partnership that has armed the grappler with a great deal of momentum. Despite the enormous hype, however, his partner Nia Jax is not about Titus Worldwide at all. An intimidating tour-de-force inside the squared circle who is poised to take on the undefeated Asuka at WWE Elimination Chamber this Sunday for the right to compete at WrestleMania, Nia Jax is definitely not like most girls. If she and Apollo can manage to put their Titus Worldwide issue aside, there is no doubt that they possess the combined natural power to takedown the likes of their robe-wearing opponents and make an effective run to win the Mixed Match Challenge.”
