Former Divas Champion Returns at WWE Summerslam (August, 21st 2016)
Last Night at WWE Summerslam, Two Women’s Matches were apart of the show and one particular tag team match was left a woman down when Eva Marie was surprisingly suspended for a wellness violation mid last week. Due to this the heel team of Alexa Bliss and Natalya were in need of a partner to combat Becky Lynch, Naomi and Carmella to prove who the dominant females are on the Smackdown Brand.
The Revealed Partner for Bliss and Natalya was revealed as Nikki Bella, who not only was reportedly cleared weeks before, but was reported to be with the roster in Brooklyn for the Weekend, as WWE hosted its NXT Takeover Special and Summerslam that weekend. The Longest Reigning Divas Champion returned from a career threatening injury, working her first match since last year, returning as a heel and pinning Carmella using a new finisher that she had teased on Instagram during her return to training. The Now Solo Bella’s Victory (with Brie currently retired) also lead Alexa and Natalya to victory in the Barclays Center, and Bella further confirmed the news that she would be heading to the Smackdown Roster in a Backstage Exclusive.
