Shane McMahon was backstage with the women’s division. He hyped the five-way elimination match at Battleground before asking which Superstars wanted to give the audience a good performance here tonight. Basically everyone said they wanted to fight Lana, prompting Tamina Snuka to scream at them to back off. Natalya tried to stir the pot and suggested that Charlotte fight Becky Lynch, which led to some bickering between the two. Charlotte claimed that she’d beaten Becky every time they were in the ring together, and Shane said he wanted to see them go at so he made the match official.

Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair

Natalya joined the commentary team for this match, as Smackdown Women’s Champion Naomi was shown watching from the backstage area. We got a flurry of back and forth chops to start things off, with Charlotte taking control and dropping her father’s signature knee. Becky came back with an exploder suplex for two, then started weakening her opponent’s arm for her finishing submission. Charlotte recovered and tried for Natural Selection but Becky had it scouted and countered into the Disarmher, but Flair got to the ropes to break the hold. Charlotte climbed to the top rope and tried for a moonsault but came up empty. Becky once again went for the Disarmher and got it locked in, dragged Flair back to the middle of the ring and sat down on the hold, picking up the somewhat surprising submission victory.

Winner: Becky Lynch

– Becky offered her hand after the match and the two shook it out, so it looks like things are good between two of the Horsewomen. Tamina Snuka made her way out with Lana close behind, while Natalya hit the ring and attacked Becky and Charlotte. The heels cleared the ring and Natalya went after Lana, but Tamina made the save and kicked Neidhart square in the face to protect her… friend? I think friend is what we’re going with right now.

Tamina Snuka & Natalya vs. Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch

Tamina starts things out and gets in Charlotte’s face, and the two have a nice back and forth to get the match underway. Becky makes the tag and has trouble at first, but turns the tide and starts working over the knee of her bigger opponent. The babyfaces work together to pick apart Tamina with Lynch hitting a nice exploder suplex, but Natalya took a cheap shot on the apron. The heels took control during the commercial break working over Becky, alternating in with quick tags and cutting her off from making the tag. Lana eventually made her way down to the ring just to make her presence known, causing another distraction that stops Becky from getting to her partner. Eventually Charlotte makes the hot tag and cleans house, lighting up Natalya with a series of big chops. She drops a knee and does a little Stlyin’ and Profiln’ but makes the mistake of going after Lana on the apron. Charlotte didn’t see Tamina make the tag and went back to work on Natalya, only to get caught out by a superkick from Snuka to put her away. // Winners: Tamina Snuka & Natalya

Four of the women brawled to the floor right away leaving Carmella alone in the ring, so she took a ladder and began to climb. They all returned and the Staten Island princess realized she was surrounded, tried to bail but got her ass kicked instead. Becky and Charlotte had a staredown and went at it, but Tamina took them both out as we head to commercial.

After the break Tamina caught Carmella trying to steal the match again, and threw her head first over the commentary table. Her and Charlotte battled over a ladder and Becky tried to climb up it while it was being held vertically, but crashed to the mat instead. Charlotte and Natalya began to climb and battled back and forth atop the ladder, but Carmella came back and knocked them over into the ropes. She celebrated her “dominance” a bit too hard and turned around into a suplex from Becky Lynch. Before Hot Fire could do anything with her advantage, Tamina came out of nowhere and blasted her with a lariat. All five women are down as we go to our final commercial of the night.

All five are somehow still down coming back from the break. Natalya is the first to recover and begins to climb, gets her hands on the briefcase but is cut off by Charlotte. Tamina and Becky join them and there are four women battling on a single ladder, which eventually gives way and sends all of them crashing and burning to the floor. Carmella was bidding her time and realizes she has an opening. She gets to the top of the ladder and almost takes it down, but all four women recover and pick up the ladder while she’s on top of of it, moving her to the side. They all start brawling again and Carmella flies off the ladder to take everyone down. Charlotte set up the ladder and slammed the bottom of it into Tamina’s head, then pinned her underneath it and began to climb. There was a terrible looking spot where Charlotte realized they weren’t properly facing the camera, moved the ladder 90 degrees and began to climb, and Tamina just crawled under it so she was “pinned” again. As Charlotte reached the briefcase Tamina lifted the ladder from underneath and set her flying into Carmella.

Natalya and Becky worked together to put down Snuka with a double powerbomb. Nattie took out Lynch and put Carmella in the Sharpshooter to take out her legs, but Charlotte broke it up with a superkick. She hit Carmella with Natural Selection and then brawled into the crowd with Charlotte for some reason. James Ellsworth came out from the crowd and threw Carmella into the ring, setting up a ladder and began to climb! Becky Lynch recovered and knocked over the ladder, crotching Ellsworth on the top rope. She set up the ladder but was caught by Carmella who sent her down hard on her knee, possibly creating an injury. Becky tried to climb but her knee wouldn’t hold up, and Carmella blasted her with a steel chair over and over again. She climbed the ladder, got to the briefcase, and took it down!

Winner and Ms. Money in the Bank: Carmella
