Welcome to SmackDown Live.
Charlotte Flair makes her way to the ring. She is followed by Becky Lynch. Out last is the Smackdown Women’s Champion Carmella and she is the one not dressed to fight.
Carmella says what is almost as absurd as Paige making her defend the title in a Triple Threat Match is Paige forcing her to come out for this face to face to face. Carmella says she is tired of your faces just like she is tired of being punished for being such a great champion. Carmella says everyone is thinking ‘poor Becky Lynch’ because she does not have a chance to win. Carmella suggests that Becky should become a clown again because that is the one thing that she is better than Charlotte at.
Becky asks if Carmella wants her to say that she did not want Charlotte in this match and that is true because Charlotte is so good. Becky says she was dreaming about dismantling Carmella but now her new dream is beating Carmella and Charlotte.
Carmella asks how hard is it to beat Charlotte since she did it twice. Charlotte has won every title, she ended Asuka’s undefeated streak, and she won the first Hell in a Cell Match. Becky, you were the first Smackdown Women’s Champion but that was because Charlotte was on Raw.
Charlotte says it is over. The manipulation ends at SummerSlam. You know you cannot hang with any of the women in the division so you have to do anything to keep the title. To beat Asuka, you had to dig up James Ellsworth. Do you know why people do not respect you? It is because you are a Diva living in a Women’s Division Era.
Carmella says she is a Diva and she is damn proud of it. Carmella says she has something that you two will never have. Compare her beauty to both of yours. Compare her body to yours. Compare her charisma to yours. Carmella reminds them that she is the champion and you are not.
Paige’s music plays and she makes her way to the stage.
She says her job as General Manager is to create the best competition for SummerSlam. That is why Charlotte got her opportunity for Sunday. She wouldn’t have gotten the opportunity if she hadn’t beaten Carmella. The WWE Universe owes Carmella some gratitude. Paige says all three of you are going to steal the show at SummerSlam. As your General Manager, it is also her duty to create the best competition for Smackdown. Why wait until Sunday?
Carmella, some might say what you do best is talking, so run along to the commentary table. Charlotte and Becky will show what they do best and that will be in a tag team match.
