John Cena & Nikki Bella vs. Carmella & James Ellsworth set for SmackDown LIVE next week

John Cena & Nikki Bella will team up in-ring for the first time on SmackDown LIVE next week when they face off against Carmella & James Ellsworth.

The two pairs arrived at a point of conflict backstage last week when The Princess of Staten Island & Ellsworth interrupted the couple as they talked about their recent issues with The Miz & Maryse. The Cenation Leader & Fearless Nikki had no patience for the F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S tandem’s blatant disrespect and challenged them to a Mixed Tag Team Match next week.

What will it look like when Cena and Nikki team up for a historic first time in a WWE ring and will Carmella and Ellsworth have any answers for them? Find out next week on SmackDown LIVE.

Elimination Chamber: Nikki Bella vs Natalya

Natalya made things as personal as possible with Nikki Bella. She may well have to answer for that when the two Superstars go head-to-head at WWE Elimination Chamber, live Sunday, Feb. 12, only on the award-winning WWE Network.

The reborn “Queen of Black Harts” first took aim at The Fearless One when she ambushed Nikki at Survivor Series in November, forcing the former Divas Champion to vacate her spot on the SmackDown LIVE Women’s squad at that pay-per-view. Ever since being exposed as the culprit, Natalya has accused Nikki of riding her boyfriend John Cena’s coattails to success, while also distancing herself from her own famous lineage, particularly her “ex-uncle” Bret Hart. Somehow, in the midst of all of this, Natalya has found the time to administer some absolutely brutal sneak attacks on her fellow Total Divas star.

And now, WWE Commissioner Shane McMahon has had enough. In order to put a stop to the chaos and give each Superstar a chance to prove she can succeed outside the shadow of her family and loved ones, The Prodigal Son declared that two of Team Blue’s most decorated veterans will settle their score at WWE Elimination Chamber. Which woman will emerge victorious? Find out Sunday, Feb. 12, only on the award-winning WWE Network.

Royal Rumble Preview

The SmackDown LIVE Women’s division is anything but uneventful. This Sunday, on the Royal Rumble Kickoff, several rivalries will intersect when Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch & Naomi square off against SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss, Mickie James & Natalya in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match.

Bliss and Lynch’s conflict over the title has escalated over the past several weeks with the mysterious injection of the masked La Luchadora. However, when La Luchadora was revealed to be the legendary Mickie James during Bliss and Lynch’s historic Steel Cage Match, it was clear the landscape of the division had officially changed. James helped WWE’s Wicked Witch retain her title, and the two seem to have formed a mighty powerful alliance.

Meanwhile, Nikki and Natalya have been engulfed in their own personally charged war that has seen insults and fists fly in equal measure. The returning Naomi then entered the mix with a tense exchange with Bliss on SmackDown LIVE just six days before Royal Rumble, claiming that she would be the one to dethrone Alexa for Team Blue’s top women’s prize.

Now, with all of these matters merging on the Kickoff, sparks will inevitably fly. Will Bliss, James and Natalya’s mind games pay dividends in the way of a tactical advantage? Or, will Fearless Nikki, Naomi and The Irish Lass Kicker all be able to exact retribution in one fell swoop?

Don’t miss the Royal Rumble Kickoff, airing live this Sunday, Jan. 29, on the award-winning WWE Network at a special start time of 5 ET/2 PT. In addition to WWE Network, the Kickoff is available on, the WWE App, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+.

Preview: When will the WWE Universe finally learn who attacked Nikki Bella?

Last week during Natalya’s match against Carmella, The Queen of Harts once again tried to explain that it wasn’t she who attacked Nikki Bella at Survivor Series. However, in the heat of the moment, Natalya pushed Nikki. Was she simply shoving the fearless competitor out of the way of The Princess of Staten Island? Or was Natalya, for one moment, outing herself as Nikki’s attacker all along?

In any event, the lingering controversy continues to surround all three Superstars like a dark cloud that refuses to dissipate. Will we finally learn who attacked the star of both “Total Divas” and “Total Bellas” tonight on SmackDown LIVE?

Smackdown Preview: Is Nikki out to get Natalya or Carmella?

Last week, following Carmella’s claims that Natalya had attacked Nikki Bella at Survivor Series, a stone-faced Nikki didn’t seem the least bit receptive to Natalya’s denial. Later on Talking Smack, The Princess of Staten Island further explained her side of things and added more fuel to the fire.

Which one’s lying: Carmella or Natalya? And will Fearless Nikki take it upon herself to find out the answer with whatever force necessary?

Smackdown Preview: Did Natalya attack Nikki Bella at Survivor Series?

Nikki Bella may have triumphed over Carmella in an intense No Disqualification Match at WWE TLC Sunday night. However, The Princess of Staten Island quickly ruined Nikki’s celebration when she claimed that it was actually Natalya who carried out the mysterious backstage assault on her “Total Divas” co-star at Survivor Series.

Later in the pay-per-view, Natalya flat-out denied Carmella’s allegations, calling the claims “absurd” and her accuser “a liar.” But, did The Queen of Harts actually do it? Will she make Carmella pay for saying she did? And will Nikki Bella herself have anything to say about it this Tuesday night?

TLC Preview: Nikki Bella vs. Carmella (No Disqualification Match)

Looking to end her rivalry with Carmella once and for all, Nikki Bella has successfully petitioned to face The Princess of Staten Island in a No Disqualification Match at WWE TLC.

The rules will be thrown out the window Sunday, Dec. 4, leaving the bitter foes to settle their grudge in one of the most lawless matches imaginable. Such extreme circumstances speak to the uncontrollable hostility that exists between the two Superstars.

Since Nikki’s triumphant return in August from a career-threatening neck injury, Carmella has repeatedly attacked and belittled the fearless former Divas Champion. The Fabulous Superstar has even gone so far as to say the only reason for Bella’s success in WWE is her relationship with John Cena.

Things hit a tipping point at Survivor Series when a mystery attacker took out Nikki prior to the Raw vs. SmackDown LIVE 5-on-5 Traditional Women’s Elimination Match. Though Nikki was unable to positively identify her assailant, she accused Carmella of being responsible for the blitz. Carmella denies any wrongdoing — in this instance, at least — but it doesn’t change the fact she and Nikki are headed for a collision course at WWE TLC.

Watch WWE’s version of a demolition derby, WWE TLC 2016, when it airs live on the award-winning WWE Network Sunday, Dec. 4, at 8 ET/5 PT.

Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown LIVE in a 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Women’s Elimination Match

Bragging rights will be on the line when Raw and SmackDown LIVE’s Women’s divisions go head-to-head in a 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Women’s Elimination Match at the 30th annual Survivor Series.

A hallmark of WWE’s fall classic, the Traditional Elimination Match can only end when all members of one team are eliminated. Elimination can occur by pinfall, submission, disqualification or count-out, and Superstars must leave the ringside area after they have been eliminated.

Team Raw is captained by Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair and also features Flair’s bitter rival, Sasha Banks, plus Bayley, Nia Jax and Alicia Fox. Unity may be impossible to achieve, but at least Charlotte had a plan in case The Boss was unable to make it to Survivor Series following her brutal Hell in a Cell Match: The self-proclaimed “Queen” went so far as to recruit her protégé Dana Brooke as a team alternate.

SmackDown LIVE, meanwhile, is represented by team captain Nikki Bella, SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Naomi and Carmella. Team Blue management also agreed to let Natalya coach the squad, but it remains to be seen whether The Queen of Harts will help SmackDown LIVE’s chances of keeping the peace amid such combustible elements.

What type of dream matchups await at Survivor Series? Will the WWE Universe witness a showdown between the champions, Flair and Lynch? Might Nikki Bella, the longest reigning Divas Champion in WWE history, step toe-to-toe with the destructive Nia Jax? What happens if onetime best friends Bayley and Carmella come to blows?

Most important of all: Which Women’s division will prevail?

Don’t miss Survivor Series 2016, live Sunday, Nov. 20, on the award-winning WWE Network, at a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.
