Charlotte and Becky took on The Iconics in tag team action to kick off the show this week.

Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch are no strangers to one another, as both these talented stars have stood across the ring as enemies and stood in each other's corners as friends, and this week on Smackdown Live these two former Women Champion's chose the latter.

While tag team matches are the single worst booking trope to throw competitors into, this match type worked with the narrative being told from last week, as Lynch has to put aside her animosity agsint Charlotte for stealing her spotlight so they could co-exist as a team.

The tale told in the ring was executed to perfection, as Charlotte tagged herself in when Becky was getting beatdown by Billie Kay and made the former NXT superstar tap out. The aftermath of this match possibly gave the fans a hint of what to come, as Lynch didn't take kindly to Charlotte hogging the spotlight since again. Whether Lynch turns heel or Charlotte backstabs Becky before she considers the idea, WWE has laid out a well-laid booking path to Summerslam.
