After many weeks of Nikki Bella and Natalya battling it out while getting as personal as possible, they were booked for a Falls Count Anywhere match on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live in Ontario, California. They didn’t promise this would be the end, in so many words, but it felt like the final showdown of the feud.
Natalya came away with the victory but it wasn’t without some help.
From none other than Maryse.
They broke the weaponry out early, with Nikki grabbing a kendo stick and taking it to Nattie’s back. They brawled through the crowd and battled everywhere but the ring, mostly around the outside of it. That included an Alabama Slam on the announcer’s table. They even went backstage, where, once again, Maryse got caught in the crossfire:

That led to her rushing Nikki with a pipe and beating her down while she had Nattie in the Fearless Lock. The Miz ran out to grab his wife and take her to the back but the damage was done and Natalya scored the pin shortly after.
