Smackdown Women's Championship, Lumberjack Match: Charlotte (c) vs. Natalya

Recommended Posts



As first revealed by Byron Saxton in an exclusive video from SmackDown LIVE’s tour through Mexico and Peru, Natalya will look to recapture the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Charlotte Flair at WWE Clash of Champions, a night where every title will be on the line. WWE.com has since learned that showdown will be a Lumberjack Match!

Standing firmly at the top of Team Blue since winning the title from Naomi at SummerSlam, Natalya assumed there was no Superstar capable of dethroning her, but Charlotte disproved her rival’s theory in a big way when she knocked the crown off the head of The Queen of Hart(less) on the final SmackDown LIVE before Survivor Series to become a six-time Women’s Champion.

Charlotte claimed the title in her hometown, where her father, two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, was on hand to surprise The Queen after her moment of triumph, making for one of the most emotional victories in blue brand history. Five days later, Charlotte followed up her incredible title win by taking down Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss in a classic showdown at Survivor Series, the one night of the year when Raw and SmackDown Superstars meet in head-to-head competition for brand supremacy.

In the wake of Survivor Series, Natalya wasted little time reengaging the Queen City titleholder on an episode of SmackDown LIVE in her contractually obligated rematch. However, before a winner could be decided in what was shaping up as another epic title bout between the two, NXT Superstars Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan suddenly appeared from the crowd and executed a surprise attack on both Superstars, leaving Charlotte and Natalya down on the canvas.

Though the titleholder and the former champion appeared to put their differences aside to form a temporary alliance alongside Naomi to combat The Riott Squad in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match, things went south in a hurry when Natalya suddenly hopped off the apron and walked out on her partners, leaving Charlotte and Naomi high and dry. As a result, it now it appears that all groves are off for the last pay-per-view of 2017.

As if the situation was not volatile enough, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan decided to make the highly-anticipated title rematch into a Lumberjack Match, opening the door for the likes of The Riott Squad, Carmella, Lana and Tamina to play a crucial role in the pay-per-view equation.

Don’t miss all the action at WWE Clash of Champions, Sunday, Dec. 17, at 8 ET/5 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.

I definitely see Riot and her group getting involved. Honestly, I could see them getting involved and then Natalya helping Charlotte, turning face in the process. She is a much better fan too me because I can never ignore the fact that she's a naturally nice person, for some reason. Charlotte retains in whatever fashion, Riott and her stable attack, Natalya and possibly a returning Naomi or Becky help, possibly setting up a storyline for Royal Rumble, or perhaps the start of a women's rumble. Either way, the match should promise to be solid at the very least.

I think these two have great chemistry in the ring and always put on a decent match. I do expect The Riott Squad to get involved either during or after the match and would like to see them push Riott in the SmackDown Women's title picture as well. I do know that with this being a lumberjack match it's more likely to have The Riott Squad attack Charlotte whenever she's thrown out of the ring, instead of Natalya. However, I wouldn't be surprised if this match ends via No Contest due a brawl breaking out between the heels and faces during the match as it has happened in the past. So I could see Charlotte Flair and Natalya ending their feud at the Rumble if this match gets interrupted.

I hate lumberjack matches. There have been good ones but most of the time they're a mess, this was no exception. I wish the Carmella cash in would have happened, would have been a positive in this shit show. Natalya's post match interview was confusing too, seemed like she was retiring at times but then it was a weird way to do it if so. If she has retired, then thank you Natalya, she's a very talented and underrated/undervalued performer, but if she hasn't (which I expect) then this was oddly executed.

Lumberjack matches on PPV shouldn't exist. It just isn't good. Especially when its done to advance a storyline with the lumberjacks and not the competitors in the ring. The title match really didn't mean anything and it was mainly about the smackdown women against the Riott Squad, aka the same storyline as RAW. :sleepy

Lumberjack matches, a match type which just doesn't work. I can only think of one good Lumberjack match of the top of my head and that wasn't because of the stipulation, but regardless of it. 

Expected result, hope they now move on from this and have carmella cash-in or at least start a new feud.
