Carmella & Natalya def. Nikki Bella & Naomi
The lambasting of Nikki Bella at the hands of the Princess of Staten Island continued on SmackDown LIVE.
Fearless Nikki teamed up with Naomi to square off with Carmella and Natalya, and let’s just say the four women did not hold back in taking out their aggressions on one another.
In the end, however, the result was the same as it has been for the better part of a month — Carmella got the upper hand on Bella, defeating her with a slam-pin combination that caught the Fearless One off guard to obtain the victory.
SmackDown LIVE’s turbulent Women’s division is stronger than ever
To say that the SmackDown LIVE’s Women’s division is on fire would be an understatement. Last week, the WWE Universe watched as Alexa Bliss literally turned the tables on SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch during their No Mercy Contract Signing, only to suffer an Irish Lass Kicking for her efforts. On the same night, Carmella was so anxious to once again get her hands on Nikki Bella that she snatched her target away from her own partner’s Sharpshooter.
There’s no doubt that Alexa will do whatever it takes to gain momentum en route to her pay-per-view title opportunity. It will be interesting to see if “Becky Balboa” has what it takes to withstand her relentless assault. And when you consider that Nikki Bella has never been one to let stand any aggression toward her, The Princess of Staten Island had better watch her back.
As noted, E!’s “Total Bellas” will premiere on Wednesday, October 5th at 8pm EST. Below is the synopsis:
