Charlotte is being interviewed about her tag team match tonight, partnering with WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Naomi. She’s attacked by Tamina Snuka, Natalya and Carmella who leave her laying on the floor.
Naomi & Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya & Carmella
Naomi is going it alone here to start things out. Carmella tries to throw a few kicks but they do literally nothing, and the champ destroys her with a series of her own kicks, followed by her rapid-fire kick spot, then a big spin kick to the face. Natalya tags in and backs Naomi into the corner, throwing her hard to the floor, but is caught with a headscissors takedown to the floor. The champ goes after her, but is caught and thrown into the steel steps. The heels alternate tags to keep the pressure on for several minutes, until Naomi and Natalya collide with crossbodies in the middle of the ring. Charlotte’s music hits as both women are down, and Flair slowly limps her way down to the ring. Naomi makes the hot tag and Charlotte clears the apron, taking down Nattie with chops and a neckbreaker, followed by a big boot. Carmella rushes the ring but is easily dispatched with a chop. She starts slamming Nattie into the corner head-first, but the numbers game catches up and the heels take control as we cut to a commercial. When we come back from the break, the rest of the Welcoming Committee (I guess that’s what we’re calling them now) are suddenly ringside. Carmella missed a Bronco Buster – she seriously hasn’t hit a single offensive move with success this entire match – and the champ gets the hot tag. A Rear View lays out Carmella, but Natalya distracts the official. Naomi lays her out with a kick, then lays out James Ellsworth, but Carmella rolls her up for the upset win. Winners: Natalya & Carmella
– The heels rush the ring and beat down Charlotte. Naomi tries to fend them off but it’s too much of a handicap. Becky Lynch’s music hits and she runs down and… shakes hands with Tamina Snuka. She shakes hands with Natalya and Carmella, then throws James Ellsworth into the group and takes down Natalya. She first up on the rest and clears the ring, but runs into a superkick from Tamina. The heels beat assault Becky while keeping Charlotte and Naomi on the floor, then pose together in the ring.
