Natalya won the SmackDown women’s title and Sasha Banks the Raw women’s championship during WWE SummerSlam on Sunday, Aug. 20 from Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Natalya defeated Naomi with referee Jason Ayers calling for the bell as Natalya made Naomi tap to the Sharpshooter. I recall on “Total Divas” on E! when Natalya stressed about turning heel and if she would get a heel reaction. Well, no need to stress anymore, champ.
Banks, who qualified for the title match after No.1 contender Bayley was injured, beat Alexa Bliss.
A fan in the soldout crowd held a sign that read “Bayley Get Well Soon,” which you can see in a WWE tweeted photo as Banks hoisted the belt above her head.
