Last week on Smackdown Live, it was decided that Charlotte, the newest acquisition from Raw, was going to get a shot at WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Naomi on last night’s edition of Smackdown Live. Charlotte has the opportunity to become the first woman to have held both the Raw and Smackdown women’s championships if she could defeat Naomi before Alexa Bliss gets her shot this weekend at WWE Payback against Bayley (Raw Women’s Champion). After locking it up, Naomi was able to reverse the headlock into one of her own and she even followed it up with a running bulldog into the middle turnbuckle dazing her opponent. Charlotte being the veteran she is suckered Naomi onto the ring apron where she would take her feet out from under her forcing Naomi to hit the ring apron. She followed it up by grabbing her by the legs and she slammed her against the floor before we went into commercial break. When we came back from commercial break, Charlotte was in full control of the match with a front face lock that she firmly had on Naomi. Naomi needed to do something because you do not want to be in that position with Charlotte Flair.
Charlotte was controlling the pace of the match which is what she does best and anytime Naomi would try to gain separation, Charlotte was on top of her making sure she didn’t with a devastating knees to the chest. After hitting a jawbreaker, Naomi had the separation she wanted as she started with her brand of offense that included those kicks and a unique fireman’s carry dropped into a roundhouse kick (so instead of a GTS with the knee, it’s a roundhouse kick). Unfortunately, she couldn’t get the pinfall as Charlotte kicked out at two. She would then set Charlotte up for a successful rear view, but again Charlotte kicked out at two. Then Naomi would try to set Charlotte up for what looked like a hurricanrana, but Charlotte reversed it and turned it into a devastating Batista bomb. Unfortunately, Charlotte couldn’t get the pinfall victory as Naomi kicked out at two. Both women were refusing to lose and you had to admire that. Charlotte would try to for her patent moonsault that she executes better than the men, but Naomi put her knees up in time to block her attempt. As soon as she tried to get up, Tamina, Carmella, and Natalya all stormed down and attacked both of them forcing the referee to call off the match.
