Backlash 2018: Charlotte Flair vs. Carmella for the SmackDown Women’s Championship

Posted by May 7, 2018 Comment

After defeating Asuka at WrestleMania, Charlotte Flair lost her title fairly quickly to Carmella, who won thanks to The Iconics ambushing Flair. I’m happy to see Carmella getting her own, but I can’t even remember if she’s a good wrestler or not. A lot of her wins were cheap shots, which is a disservice to the women’s division.

This match started off with Carmella trying to win per a DQ, but Flair wasn’t having it. Carmella did get a super kick in, though, which are always fun to watch. This gave her the leg up she needed, and Carmella was even able to get Flair in a headlock. Carmella taunted and teased Flair, but was unable to keep Flair down for long.

I like both of these women a great deal, but the match didn’t grab me like the last few. Carmella’s constant screaming was fun, but got old fast. This match did a great job of showing off Flair’s pure strength, and Carmella is indeed very athletic. In the end though Carmella won — but only because Flair tweaked her knee. It was still a somewhat fair win for Carmella, however, so maybe she’s going in the right direction.
