Nikki Bella & Naomi def. Natalya & Carmella via Disqualification
The Princess of Staten Island continues to rule with an iron fist.
Right as this tag team match began, Carmella ripped Nikki Bella out of her partner Natalya’s Sharpshooter and, much like in weeks past, viciously attacked Fearless Nikki, relentlessly throwing her into the barricade until Naomi was able to even the score and come to her partner’s aid, neutralizing the situation … for now, at least.
Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella dressed to impress for the 2016 Emmys, while also competing in a take-off of “The Newlywed Game” on E! against Ross Matthews & Kristin Dos Santos as well as host Giuliana Ranci and Brad Goreski.

Before her first contender could be crowned in a Fatal 5-Way Match, new SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch thanked the WWE Universe for their continued support and make it clear that she was ready to take on all comers.
The action picked up right where it left off at Backlash with Nikki Bella, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, Natalya and Carmella all wanting to stake their claim as the first Clubber Lang proxy for Becky “Balboa” and her championship.
In the midst of all those statements attempting to be made, Nikki and Carmella continued their ongoing rivalry with more strikes exchanged, but it was ultimately Alexa who pulled through. She defeated Nikki after craftily throwing Carmella out of the ring after the Princess of Staten Island hit the Total Bellas star with a superkick, becoming the new No. 1 contender for Team Blue’s top female prize.
After the match, Bliss proved she would not be bashful, taunting Lynch and eager to show that she was both not afraid and ready to shine.

The rules of the Six-Pack Challenge were a recipe for chaos from the start, as all six women had to battle until five were eliminated and one Superstar was left standing.
In the complete free-for-all that followed, Naomi pinned Alexa Bliss, Natalya made Naomi tap out to the Sharpshooter and Nikki Bella eliminated Natalya. In addition to Becky, this left Nikki and Carmella in the running — two Superstars who clearly have had no love lost for each other in recent weeks. Although Carmella ultimately found a way to score a quick win over her adversary, the Fearless Superstar continued to tangle with her after the bell.
When Nikki exited, a determined Irish Lass Kicker went to war against The Princess of Staten Island and ultimately reigned supreme with a series of suplexes and the Dis-arm-her.
With Becky’s monumental victory, SmackDown LIVE finally has the Women’s Champion it has been waiting for. How long she will stand at the front of the pack remains to be seen.
