Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Becky Lynch wins the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship

Here's the match video for the WWE Women's Championship Six Pack Elimination Challenge from Backlash. If you're a regular reader of this blog, you'll know that I'm not a big fan of these kind of matches. And I was concerned that these women wouldn't get enough time for a decent match. There were some rough spots but they did OK for the most part. I was very happy to see Becky Lynch win the title. She is the best wrestler of these girls. And I thought moving her to Smackdown would bring her out of the shadow of Charlotte and especially Sasha Banks. I remember when Becky lived in Vancouver ten years ago. And I'm sure Mauro Ranallo remembers that too as he was the ECCW broadcaster. She also had concussion problems that led to her quitting wrestling to become an Aer Lingus stewardess. But she's coming into her own and I think she will be a great champ. The others in the match were Nikki Bella, Carmella, Natalya, Alexa Bliss and Naomi. The usual format in this kind of match is wrestlers are tossed to the floor so we can get some one on one action. And there are trademark spots like The Tower of Doom. Some fans thought Nikki would win. But she's not working a full time schedule and they're having her do a program with Carmella who should have stayed at NXT. I won't say she's a bad wrestler. She's just not a wrestler which is funny because her dad was a wrestler. She's a cheerleader. Even her entrance is getting no reaction. At NXT, she was connected with Enzo and Cass (her boyfriend) but Smackdown fans aren't making that connection. The roughest spot in the match was when Naomi tried to headscissor Natalya over the top rope to the floor. But Naomi had trouble with the move. Fans are wowed by Naomi's entrance but she needs to step up her wrestling. She has athletic ability but not necessarily wrestling ability. The end of the match came when Carmella eliminated Nikki and then Nikki slapped her. Carmella forgot about Becky and Becky won with her armbar finisher. I also liked Becky's post match interview. Please give Becky more non-scripted mic time. She can talk. Her enthusiasm is infectious. Fans will be drawn to her. Well, I can wish, can't I? Enjoy the video!
