WWE Smackdown Live Recap – August 7, 2018

Carmella walked out with her WWE Smackdown Women’s Title belt. Phillips said she’d be on commentary for the next match.

Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. The IIconics (Billy Kay & Peyton Royce)

Becky came out to her music first. Then Charlotte came out to her music separately. Finally the IIconics. Kay said Orlando is the saddest place on Earth. They called Charlotte overrated and a bad dancer who lost to Carmella twice. They high-fives. Then they pretended they couldn’t even see Becky. Fans chanted “Boring!” at them. Then they saw her and said she’s once again in Charlotte’s shadow. “Poor Becky, always a bride’s maid but never a champion.” Charlotte and Becky dominated early, so the IIconics retreated to ringside. Charlotte launched onto them at ringside with a slingshot crossbody block. They cut to a break, but stayed with the action on split screen.

The IIconics took over during the break. After the break ended, Charlotte surprised Kay with a small package. Then they each gave each other a boot to the face and went down hard. Both tagged in their partners. Becky went at Royce with a flurry of offense and then played to the crowd. She hit her exploder suplex and then kipped up. She followed with a top rope forearm for a two count. Charlotte tagged in and landed a moonsault off the top rope onto both IIconics. Well, she landed on their connected arms and they both bumped to the mat. Charlotte then applied the figure-eight as Becky leaned in the corner seeming less than thrilled she wasn’t the one scoring the pin. She then got up and hugged Charlotte, and Charlotte tried to make sure she was okay with how things went. Becky’s face conveyed conflicted feelings. Carmella stood on the announce desk holding her belt up, taunting Charlotte and Becky. Byron said he cannot wait until Summerslam to see who walks out as champion.
