The last show before the TLC pay-per-view is over and it did absolutely nothing for the women of SmackDown. In fact, as of now we don’t have a SmackDown Women’s Championship match for TLC still.
Who was on the show though was Dana Brooke who continues to get way more air time then she ever did on RAW. She has a decent non-title match with Bayley but of course comes out with a loss.
Just as predicted Fire & Desire had a tag team match against Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross. The best part of this whole interaction was that Fire & Desire ran to the back and attacked Bliss & Cross prior to the start of the match.
For a moment it appeared that they were being given the momentum for a win, but alas in the end Cross would pin Sonya Deville after a neckbreaker.
Let’s get into the Winners & Losers of the night:
WINNER: Dana Brooke
Dana may not have won her match but she is finally being utilized pretty regularly for what it’s worth. Personally it would be nice if she would receive a title match for a change. In a WWE Exclusive, Bayley comments that Dana has been the only one to accept a challenge. It is a long shot but it would be nice to see her vs. Bayley at TLC.
LOSER: Lacey Evans
For whatever reason the ball has been dropped. It could be possible that something may have caused her to not be on Smackdown this week that was out of everyone’s control. However, not having the potential challenger for a title before a pay-per-view present doesn’t look good. Regardless if she was there or not the match could have at least been booked.
LOSERS: Fire & Desire
What makes them being placed on the losers list even worse is that there was a glimpse of hope they would pull out a win. Their early attack prior to the match getting underway was a quick excitement. A quick excitement that quickly burned out as quickly as the match lasted.
If the booking was better they would make a point to this feud. Mandy Rose has been saying that Nikki and Alexa will never be as pretty as her for months now. We get it.
If this feud had perhaps a number one contender implication it could happen on the Kick Off show at TLC. Then again, we would know that outcome.
