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.
