SmackDown Live lost quite a few of their top stars in the women’s division Monday night in the Superstar Shake-up when Alexa Bliss and former WWE Women’s Champion Mickie James made the jump to Raw.
Shane McMahon made his way to the ring at the beginning of SmackDown Live’s second hour, and he announced that he would be addressing the state of the SmackDown women’s division.
He called all the women out to the ring, and SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi came out first, followed by Natalya, and Carmella with James Ellsworth, then Becky Lynch. Sadly that was all the SmackDown Live roster had left, so Shane congratulated Naomi on her big WrestleMania win.
James Ellsworth told Shane McMahon that Naomi is a horrible champion, and that the only reason people tune into SmackDown Live is to see Carmella and himself.
Naomi snatched the mic from Ellsworth’s hands, and told Carmella to check her side-chick. She apologized and asked Shane to announced who would be joining SmackDown Live.
Shane then introduced a second generation star and said her father is one of the greatest of all time. The Boston fans were expecting Charlotte, but Tamina Snuka came out instead. Shane then tried to exit the ring, but he stopped himself as the crowd chanted, “We want Sasha!”
Shane McMahon then announced that he was about to reveal newest member of the SmackDown women’s division and he introduced Charlotte Flair who came out in a robe.
