– According to Ringside News, the injury to Smackdown Women’s Champion Naomi is real and not part of a storyline. Naomi noted on SmackDown that she didn’t notice the injury until she had returned to her room later that night. The injury is believed to be minor, so they decided to do an angle to set up a rematch between Bliss vs. Naomi for next week. However, the match wasn’t exactly confirmed.
“I was about to go out there a couple weeks ago, and I heard Braun Strowman say, I want a title shot. Mr. McMahon’s behind the curtain, at the board watching the monitor, and he goes, oh god, it’s not a title shot. I was thinking to myself, then what is it? That’s exactly what I would go to call it when I would go out there. You want a title shot? He’s like, it’s a title match. It’s a match! So if you ever wonder what it’s like to see a six-foot-eight, three hundred pound behemoth get chewed out, you should’ve been there.”
