The tensions between SmackDown Live Women’s Champion Charlotte and her former best friend Becky Lynch came up to a full boil on Wednesday with the Irish Lass Kicker brutally assaulting The Queen from behind. The attack took place after Charlotte overcame the challenge by former Champion Carmella to retain her title. The Princess of State Island, who lost her title to Charlotte at SummerSlam, invoked her rematch clause and looked to exploit Charlotte’s ongoing tensions with Lynch in her favour.
But the 7-time Champion managed to keep her calm, taking down Carmella with a vicious spear and then rolling over to lock a Finger eight. Carmella could do little to survive and tapped out immediately. But before Charlotte could celebrate her win, she was blindsided with Lynch, who took her down to the canvas to deliver vicious punches.
The first Women’s Champion of the blue brand then delivered a straight fire kick to the Champion on her face. Becky then grabbed the microphone and issued a challenge to The Queen for a title match at the upcoming pay-per-view, Hell in a Cell. Lynch then dropped the title on Charlotte’s lifeless body before boldly walking off.
