WWE aired its annual Tribute to the Troops episode today. This event that started in 2003 hosted its 18th event the best way it could in order to honor the members of the United States Armed Forces. There was one women’s match on the card and that was a tag team bout featuring the ladies of SmackDown.
The match whittled its way down to the SmackDown Women’s Champion Banks and the ring-veteran Natalya. Belair rolled outside the ring with Bayley to make her a non-issue. As Natalya went to use the ropes for her patented move, Banks tripped her up to apply the Bank Statement. This caused the tap out and the victory for Banks and Belair.
As much as it was great to see Banks and Belair team up and get this win, many are waiting for them to face each other for that SmackDown Women’s Title. In the meantime, Banks will defend her title against Carmella at the TLC pay-per-view while Belair has her hands full with Bayley for the past few weeks on SmackDown.
