Roman Reigns defended his WWE Universal Championship against Kevin Owens on WWE SmackDown this week. Plus, Big E challenged Sami Zayn for the WWE Intercontinental Championship in a Lumberjack Match on Friday Night.
Here's a list of five things WWE SmackDown got right on this week’s show.
#5 Asuka and Charlotte Flair worked like a great team on WWE SmackDown
New WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Asuka and Charlotte Flair came to the blue brand to defend their titles. The champions tried to address the WWE Universe, but they were interrupted by several women in the process.
Banks and Belair teamed together while Bayley and Carmella joined forces as a another duo. Banks and Carmella traded a lot of strikes during the first few minutes. The match also allowed Belair to show her strength in the ring once again.
"The EST" continued to impress throughout the bout, and soon "The Boss" delivered a frog splash to Bayley to eliminate her team from the contest.
Belair took control late in the match, and she almost managed to put Asuka away. But Flair’s Natural Selection kept Belair down for the three count. So Flair and Asuka successfully defended their WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship on SmackDown.
This contest was a good match that made Belair look strong in defeat. On the other hand, the partnership between Carmella and Bayley was compelling. It could continue to develop in the weeks that follow. Regardless, Asuka and Flair are gelling as a team, and they look unstoppable.
