WWE has been needing to refresh its women’s division on Friday Night SmackDown, what with no clear challenger lined up for Bianca Belair once she finished up with Bayley. Well, Bayley suffered an injury that will keep her out for the better part of the next year and that sped the process up.
To that end, we got Shotzi Blackheart and Tegan Nox showing up and immediately defeating the women’s tag team champions. It’s a bit strange they’re coming up as a tag team, but that doesn’t have to last (and surely won’t) and gets two more women on the brand.
On top of that, a vignette aired announcing Toni Storm is coming too. The future looks bright indeed.
