Report: Heat on Divas over botched SmackDown finish

Last Thursday night's episode of SmackDown featured a bout between Charlotte and Naomi that saw interference from Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch, leading to a tag match. It wasn't great, but it wasn't awful, and the finish saw Naomi reverse a rollup on Charlotte to score the pin.

Apparently, that wasn't supposed to happen and there's now some internal heat on the Divas because of it.

That's according to Dave Meltzer on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio:

"What I know is that the finish wasn't the planned finish and the match was apparently a disaster, from an internal standpoint. I don't know if people go 'oh, it wasn't that bad', I don't care. I'm not even sure all the reasons why other than, yeah, they went to the finish... the match was supposed to go several more minutes, at least another full segment. ... It was supposed to go one more segment, that's all I know."

As you can see in the video, everything looks normal outside of the fact that Naomi looks PISSED and actually yells at Charlotte before going into her celebration:

This is exactly the kind of thing the Divas don't need happening at such a crucial time for the division. That said, mistakes like this happen and there's no reason they can't rebound just fine on tonight's episode of Raw.
