Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair & Naomi vs Carmella, Natalya, and Tamina Snuka

Result: Carmella, Natalya, & Tamina Snuka win via pinfall

Rating: 3.75 out of 5 stars

In a rematch from Backlash, the trio of Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Naomi took on the heel trio of Carmella, Natalya, and Tamina Snuka. At the start of the match. Charlotte and Natalya begin the contest for their respective teams. Frequent tags occur in the early portion of the match, with the faces keeping control for a time. Eventually, Becky is overwhelmed by the heels and systematically damaged. However, she is able to make the hot tag shortly thereafter.

Feeding off the crowd, Naomi burst into the ring and hit a flurry of offensive moves on Carmella. The Princess of Staten Island made the tag to Tamina, and she too suffered a similar fate. A diving crossbody leads to a pin attempt, but Carmella managed to recover and make the save. This leads to Charlotte coming in and evening the odds, leveling Carmella with a big boot. Natalya enters the altercation now, with her and Tamina taking out Charlotte. The two go to double team Naomi, but the champion was able to keep them at bay.

Towards the closing moments of the match, Lana decided to reappear and interfere in the contest. Grabbing Naomi’s legs, she distracted the champion long enough for Tamina to take advantage. One superkick later, and the heel trio emerged victorious for the second time in a row.

Shifting to the backstage area, Shane McMahon notices the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy in his office. Mojo Rawley is present as well, eager to gain the opportunities winning the battle royal should’ve earned him already. Shane agrees, if he can beat Mahal like he did at WrestleMania.
