Smackdown Discussion Post: August 28th, 2018

Charlotte Flair has been public enemy number one ever since she won the Smackdown Women’s Championship 10 days ago at SummerSlam. She pinned her best friend Becky Lynch and dethroned the Staten Island Princess, Carmella.

Last week she had a brawl with her now former best friend that involved the entire women’s roster to break it up. Carmella let General Manager Paige know last week that she wanted to invoke her rematch clause. Paige gave that to her and it will happen tonight. Will Flair be able to stay focused and retain her title tonight, or will she be constantly checking her back for an attack from Lynch?

Check out the official WWE preview below:

“After defeating Carmella and Becky Lynch in a Triple Threat Match to capture the SmackDown Women’s Championship at SummerSlam, Charlotte will make her first defense against former titleholder Carmella tonight on SmackDown LIVE.

The Queen returned several weeks ago, stopping The Princess of Staten Island from attacking Becky Lynch, who had earned a title opportunity by defeating Carmella. Afterward, Flair was given the opportunity to be added into the SummerSlam title showdown, and she took advantage by defeating Princess Mella.

At The Biggest Event of The Summer, Flair pinned Lynch to win the championship, sending The Irish Lass Kicker into a rage that saw her viciously attack The Queen and end their friendship. Two nights later on the blue brand, Charlotte and Becky once again threw fists in a wild melee and had to be pulled apart by nearly every woman on SmackDown LIVE. After the brawl, Carmella approached SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige about getting her rematch, and her request was granted.

Will Charlotte Flair put the implosion of her closest friendship aside, or will Carmella take advantage and reclaim her title? “

Also, we had a returning Brie Bella last week who came to defend her honor against Maryse.

“Last week, just moments before the WWE Universe learned that Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella will team together against The Miz & Maryse at WWE Hell in a Cell, Brie made a huge statement when she attacked The A-Lister. What chaos will the husband/wife adversaries cause this week as they head toward their collision at the Sept. 16 pay-per-view?”
