During the TLC 2020 broadcasts via WWE Network, Sasha Banks retained the SmackDown Women’s Championship by defeating Carmella in a heads-up match.
The confrontation was the second of the day pay-per-view, where The Boss tried to attack his rival but with the help of his companion Reignarld, Carmella made a Hurricanrana. This led to “The Untouchable” dominating the fight until the count reached two. Sasha regained control, performing Tres Amigos and Frog Splash on his rival. Reginald again took Carmella and this time Sasha attacked him with a Metoda.
Finishing, Carmella performed a Superkick and tried again to get the victory by a pin but The Boss made his Bank Statement make Carmella surrender.
In this way, The Boss continues his 56-day reign that he achieved at the Hell in a Cell 2020 event. Sasha defeated Bayley in a match inside the steel cage during the pay-per-view event on October 25. . The superstar not only won the SmackDown title for the first time in her career, but she also became a triple crown champion (adding her reigns in RAW and team) and a grand slam champion (adding her reign in NXT).
