Naomi will be getting a SmackDown Women’s championship match next week at Super ShowDown.
She pinned Carmella tonight on SmackDown following a split-legged moonsault. The number one contenders match was set up last week when Carmella wanted a rematch after losing a championship match to Bayley earlier in the program. Naomi later did an interview on that show saying she wanted a shot as well. The match was then made for this week.
Since returning to the SmackDown brand, Naomi has confronted champion Bayley on several occasions. She was involved in a match two weeks ago where the winner would face Bayley in a championship match on the February 14 edition of SmackDown, but it was won by Carmella, who pinned Naomi in a fatal four way match that also involved Alexa Bliss and Dana Brooke.
Previously, women were unable to compete at WWE’s Saudi Arabia events. However, that changed when Natalya and Lacey Evans had a match at Crown Jewel back in November.
Super ShowDown will take place next Thursday at the Mohammed Abdu Arena on the Boulevard in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
