Both Naomi and Lana returned in the women’s Royal Rumble just last night after extended absences due to injury. Naomi had a solid showing while Lana got back at Nia Jax by eliminating her from the match.
That was apparently enough to put them together as a tag team and then put them in a match to determine the next top contenders to the women’s tag team titles. That match also featured Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke and Charlotte Flair & Asuka. If you thought there was no chance they would win, well, you would be wrong.
The story continued to be about Ric Flair and Lacey Evans giving Charlotte hell, as they again interrupted to cause a distraction. Only this time, Charlotte decided to simply tag out to Asuka and walk away from it all. Asuka was seemingly so shocked by this, she paid no attention to Naomi coming in with the Rear View, which was enough to score a three count.
So Lana and Naomi are getting a title shot against Jax and Shayna Baszler at a future date yet to be determined and Flair and Asuka may be through as a team.
