In the brutal battle between Charlotte Flair and Tamina, we saw the champion prove to the division exactly why she’s the locker room leader. Charlotte put this heavy hitting battle away by nailing Tamina with a big boot and locking in the Figure 8!
However, this wouldn’t go unnoticed by Natalya Neidhart, who was watching the action at ringside after she promised Tamina she’d watch her back tonight if she and her other Welcoming Committee buddies had hers come Clash Of Champions. After Charlotte Flair forced the ‘Samoan Solider’ to tap out to her signature Figure 8, Natalya talked smack to the woman who she will face in a now-announced lumberjill match for the SmackdownLive Women’s Championship at Clash of Champions. She claimed Charlotte better enjoy her last bit of victory because ‘The Queen’ will bow down to ‘The Best There Is, The Best There Was, And The Best There Ever Will Be’.
Natalya and her former alliance of Tamina, Carmella, and Lana began taking power into their own hands. Until the Riott Squad interrupted (with beautiful new trons I may add. Suicide Squad vibes). Ruby, with a mic in hand, told the crowd to get their snacks ready and take a sip of their soda because the stars have arrived. Meanwhile, Sarah compared the women looking as nervous as “long-tailed cats in a room full of rocking chairs” (…which I didn’t understand). And Liv claimed nobody is safe when a riot breaks out. And well, she was right! Tamina didn’t take it too kindly and hit Sarah with a right hand and tackled her onto the ground. But it only lasted a few seconds as the respective teams pried the girls off of each other.
The lumberjill match at Clash Of Champions will be nothing short of interesting. Natalya trying to manipulate and convince everyone throughout the night to help her was genius and hilarious! But will Natalya’s former friends actually aid her and follow her request? Will the Riott Squad wreck havoc on both women at the Pay-Per-View? I guess we’ll have to find out in a few weeks!
