There was no way in the world the WWE was going to leave the sexy & evil blond position vacant on SmackDown Live once Alexa Bliss went to Raw.
And it was obvious that the E purposely kept Naomi’s title reign storyline in limbo to insert Lana in at the right time – just before the Money In the Bank PPV – to prop her up in hopes that she will become the women’s face of SmackDown.
On Raw you are well aware of who the women’s champion is – because Alexa Bliss is made to look strong & dominant for the most part. On SmackDown Live they clearly have Naomi playing the 3rd wheel tag a long, who looks anything but dominant. Week after week we have watched Naomi have one meaningless match after the other with her frenemies.
On this week’s SmackDown Live she had another throw away match against Tamina. And we know the E did a do over of last week’s match up – so they can continue to make Lana look stronger before Money In The Bank.
And The E must have enjoyed the crowd response because they clearly loved Lana laying Naomi out and acting like she was the champion. And a lot of the basement dwellers who clearly do not like Naomi are salivating over Lana’s arrival. Will Naomi finally look like the champion she is on Sunday by beating Lana’s ass ? or will this be another opportunity for the WWE to prop Lana up by continuing to make Naomi look like the weakest women’s champion SmackDown has had since the roster split.
