Cattie’s Catch Up: Naomi and Charlotte vs Natalya and Carmella on WWE Smackdown (May, 2nd 2017)

Welcome to this weeks midweek throwback, and right in the midst of potential tensions between Smackdown Superstars Charlotte and Becky Lynch. Last May, Charlotte was beginning her transition into a babyface, starting out as a heel upon being drafted to Smackdown Live. Frustrated at not being awarded a title shot right away against the then champion Naomi, Charlotte spoke out about it and eventually got her match with Naomi. That match would be crashed by the dubbed “Welcoming Committee” Tamina, Carmella and Natalya, ensuring no result upon their beat-down to the two.

A Week passed and Naomi and Charlotte would be uniting against Carmella and Natalya in tag team action, but the committee, who were trying to recruit the outside babyface Becky Lynch onto their side, attacked Charlotte backstage, leaving Naomi to fend off them two on one. To their chagrin, Charlotte came out to join Naomi eventually despite the brutality received earlier in the evening. The villainous side stood tall and victorious regardless, and used the numbers game post match to overwhelm the two again. Becky Lynch would run down, to the adulation of the fans, teasing joining the squad at first upon coming face to face with them, before attacking them and facing the numbers game also. This lead to the booking of Naomi, Charlotte and Becky vs Tamina, Natalya and Carmella at the brands upcoming Pay Per View, Backlash. While not an official heel turn in that instance, could an actual villainous Becky Lynch take form for the second time in her WWE Career come Summerslam or after?
