Charlotte Flair vs Natalya

Result: Charlotte Flair wins via pinfall

Rating: 3.75 out of 5 stars

Moments before the next contest, Randy Orton conducted an interview backstage about the previous segment. Proud of what he accomplished, the Viper is eager to compete in his hometown this Sunday.

Focusing now to the final female match of the evening, Charlotte Flair and Natalya fought against one another. During the contest, both Becky Lynch and Carmella watched the action on separate screens. Seeing as how all of these women are involved in one of the Money in the Bank ladder matches, it made sense from a storyline perspective. Along with that, the MiTB briefcase hung high above the ring throughout the match, reminding the female athletes what awaits them.

Back to the ring, Charlotte and Natalya wasted little time getting right into the task at hand. The early action consisted of the two sizing up one another, but after a commercial break things got wild and chaotic. A number of impressive moves were on display, including a vicious powerbomb delivered at the hands of Natalya. Charlotte retaliated by delivering a picture-perfect moonsault, but was unable to keep Natalya down.

Fighting her way back into the match, Natalya tried to end things with the Sharpshooter. Somehow, Charlotte managed to get out of the hold, dropping Natalya with a vicious big boot in the process. Finally, she would go on to hit Natural Selection for the pinfall victory. Pointing up toward the briefcase, she showed her intention to make history at MiTB.

In the backstage area, Lana discussed how she plans on winning her first singles championship this Sunday. When asked how the WWE Universe views her and how she in turn felt about it, Lana coldly said she didn’t care less.
