We have our first match set for WWE Summerslam, as the top contender to the Smackdown Women's Championship was determined Sunday.
At WWE Battleground, Natalya bested four opponents to become the number one contender for Naomi and her Smackdown Women's Championship at Summerslam. Natalya herself defeated Charlotte and Becky Lynch during the match, with Lynch submitting both Lana and Tamina.
You can see an excerpt of our Fightful.com live coverage below.
Natalya clotheslines Charlotte before locking in a sharpshooter, but Lana comes in and breaks it up before getting a near fall, Becky locking in the Disarmer out of nowhere. Tamina then comes in and saves Lana by hitting a Samoan drop to Becky and spearing Charlotte through the ropes. Lana then gets a near fall on Becky before Becky locks the Disarmer in again, but Tamina stops her again. Becky then locks it in on Tamina and forces her to tap for the elimination. Becky then eliminates Lana before Charlotte powers out of a triangle by Natalya into a sit-out powerbomb for a near fall. Natalya then picks up the pin and eliminates Charlotte for the win.
Winner: Natalya via pinfall
It's worth noting that Carmella currently holds the Women's Money in the Bank briefcase, so the match could change at any time.
WWE Summerslam takes place August 20 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
