- The Queen and The Empress defeated Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair, and Bayley and Carmella during the Blue Show broadcasts
During the Friday Night SmackDown broadcasts on FOX, superstars Asuka and Charlotte Flair defended their Women’s Tag Team Championships in a triple elimination threat against the pairs of Bayley and Carmella, and Sasha Banks, and Bianca Belair.
The confrontation was the second of the Christmas day of the blue show. Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan witnessed the action from backstage, which was very even throughout. Carmella had a lot of prominence until the elimination of her team, which happened when Banks ironed Bayley with a Frog Splash. Later, Bianca and Sasha would be defeated after a combination of Asuka’s Codebreaker and Charlotte’s Natural Selection.
In doing so, Asuka and Charlotte Flair retain the WWE Women’s Team Championships in their first title defense. The duo of “The Queen” and “The Empress” won the titles five days ago at TLC 2020. Asuka and Flair defeated former champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler on December 20, winning the tag team titles for the second and first. occasion respectively.
Charlotte Flair returned to WWE programming at TLC 2020
Last Sunday at Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2020, fans were surprised by the return of Charlotte Flair after almost half a year of absence. “The Queen” replaced Lana in the fight for the tag team titles, joining Asuka to face Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler. In the final moments of the match, Asuka suddenly appeared to bring Nia to the ringside zone while Charlotte took off a Baszler Kirifuda Clutch and performed a Natural Selection to take the victory by the count of three. As a matter of interest, that victory allowed Charlotte to become a Triple Crown champion (adding her reigns on RAW and SmackDown) and a Grand Slam champion (adding her reign on NXT).
