Welcome to another SmackDown Redux! So last week, Becky Lynch got the win over Brie Bella with the help from the Divas Champion Charlotte. Becky didn’t want the help and led to her accusing Charlotte of thinking that she can win on her own. But on Raw, Becky got the win fair and square. What’s next for the Lass-Kicker? Let’s find out!
Our first gift of Divas was Summer Rae and her man Tyler Breeze attending Santino Marella’s (insert sigh here) Christmas party:
Our sole Divas match is Charlotte (in a Santa’s Little Helper outfit) going one-on-one with Brie Bella and Becky Lynch is in the commentator’s booth:
They ask her about Charlotte’s magazine cover and Becky says she is proud and talks about the friendship. When asked about a possible match with her, Becky says it will be strictly business.
Charlotte starts the match with her father’s signature strut. The two lock up and Charlotte takes Brie into the corner. Brie Mode connects with an elbow and tries to go for her patented dropkick, Charlotte catches her with a neckbreaker. She kips up. She goes for the cover and gets a nearfall. Flair goes for a pair of knee drops and gets another nearfall.
Charlotte applies a headlock. Brie tries powering out, but Charlotte knees the chest of Mrs. Danielson. A “We Want Becky” chant breaks out. (On commentary, Becky talks about her background on the indies and having her career on her own terms.) Brie tries to power out again but Charlotte reams her head into the mat. Charlotte attempts a knee drop but Brie moves and starts with some forearms to the head of the Champion.
Brie gets fired up with her series of strikes followed by the Brie Mode knee attack. She then hits a dropkick from the second rope and follows up with her husband’s signature kicks to the chest. She misses the kick to the head and Charlotte hits a spear. All of a sudden……
“Sky’s The Limit” starts playing and Team B.A.D. (Sasha Banks, Naomi, and Tamina) make their way to the ring in their most awful holiday garb. They prance all the way to Becky and pour Egg-Nog on her. She fights Naomi and then gets jump. Meanwhile, in the ring Charlotte can see the attack on Becky but choose to not help her and locks in the Figure 8 for the submission victory. After match, Charlotte tries to make light of the situation but Becky is not happy.
Thoughts: Another solid SmackDown of buildup for this Becky and Charlotte’s inevitable feud. The addition of Team B.A.D. into this was perfect and MUCH better thane what we’ve gotten the past few weeks.
Instead of them just being backstage doing nothing at all, why not use them as a plot device? They are HEELS and they did something fucked up to Becky. I was legit getting sympathy for Becky when they threw the eggnog on her. And Charlotte did not do anything. Perfect!
I think that this moment was a perfect building block to the actual heel turn. Becky will use this moment to get sympathy and Charlotte can use this to defend her being in the match. I really can’t complain about anything this week. With that being said this last show of 2015 was a very good sign of what’s to come in 2016. I think next year the stories will be much better! As always, thanks for reading! See you next year and Happy Holidays!
