#NaomiDeservesBetter is now a storyline on SmackDown

Fans and wrestlers were quite vocal in their support for Naomi following her loss to Lacey Evans last week on SmackDown. Booker T didn’t really seem to understand that the #NaomiDeservesBetter trend was a general show of support rather than a demand for championship gold around her waist, which brought a response from both Naomi and Sasha Banks.

It turns out that this passionate fan support for Naomi is now a storyline on this week’s (July 24) episode of SmackDown, when Naomi appears as a guest on Miz TV:

“The Miz & John Morrison always have the finger on the pulse of sports-entertainment, and they’ll be joined by last week’s center of attention when Naomi stops by ‘Miz TV.’

Naomi set social media aglow last week after her loss to Lacey Evans led many in the WWE Universe to back up the exuberant Superstar. The Sassy Southern Belle gained control of the match by tying Naomi’s hair to the ropes and then landing a Woman’s Right to get the victory.

What will Naomi have to say about last week’s loss and the reaction from the WWE Universe?”

WWE also announced that Bayley and Sasha Banks will address the championship landscape of the blue brand:

The Golden Role Models have amassed all the titles, but the controversy hasn’t escaped them. Bayley & Sasha Banks continue to stake The Boss’ claim to the Raw Women’s Championship, but the contentious conclusion to her match against Asuka at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules has created confusion around the title.

The Women’s Tag Team Champions plan to address the blue brand and clear the air on the championship landscape. Bayley & Banks promise to even redefine greatness in the process, as the pair will hold all the gold when they walk into SmackDown.

What will the duo have to say about Sasha’s looming rematch against The Empress of Tomorrow?

Earlier this week, it was revealed that SmackDown will also feature a Bar Fight between Jeff Hardy and Sheamus.

Are these segments enough to get you to tune into SmackDown tomorrow night?
