On this week’s SmackDown, Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey had words in the ring before a parking lot brawl broke out to close the show. Rousey will be facing Flair at WrestleMania 38 for the SmackDown Women’s Title and both women are convinced they are going to cause the other to tap out.
In the parking lot, cameras come up on the two already brawling by a vehicle. As many officials try to pull them apart, Flair fights them off as well. The show ends after Flair tosses Rousey on the hood of the car and gets her into a submission hold before going back for one last punch which has Rousey slide off the hood of the car onto the concrete floor.
This of course wouldn’t be the first time that Rousey and Flair have brawled in a parking lot. The two along with Becky Lynch had a memorable fight back in 2019 leading into their WrestleMania 35 main event.
As two former Women’s Tag Team Champions themselves, the pair spoke on this weekend’s Talking Smack with interest in being added to the upcoming Women’s Tag Team Championship match set for WrestleMania on Sunday, April 3. Currently, the bout is a Triple Threat with the champions Carmella & Queen Zelina defending against Naomi & Sasha Banks and Liv Morgan & Rhea Ripley.
Baszler and Nattie were not able to pick up a win on SmackDown this week with the champions watching on from ringside. After Banks tossed Natalya into the champions, both Carmella and Zelina caused a distraction by jumping on the ring apron. Banks hit Natalya with a codebreaker to get the pin.
Despite their loss, Baszler questioned what they have to do in order to get in on the WrestleMania match. Both say they feel underappreciated. Natalya said she will take out WWE official Sonya Deville to dinner in order to plead their case if that is what it takes. The pair have worked together previously with Deville during her long rivalry with Naomi back in November.
You can see Banks and Naomi’s confidence grow saying the more the merrier when it comes to the upcoming tag team match at WrestleMania. They welcome Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley into the match. Banks and Naomi have been tagging for years and the Boss and Glow Time are ready for anything.
