Tamina attacked Bayley and Sasha before they could decide which member of the team was going to start the match. Bayley attempted to make a tag to Sasha, but Tamina kept cutting her off. Sasha finally got in the match and went to town on Tamina.Β It appeared that Sasha and Bayley were going to retreat, but Lacey cut her off. Smackdown went to commercial.

Back from the commercial, Lacey Evans was working over Sasha Banks. Lacey attempted to go for her moonsault, but Bayley distracted her and Sasha recovered. Sasha and Bayley had Evans isolated for the next several moments, but Lacey finally evaded and made the tag to Tamina. With Tamina legal, she tossed Sasha into the barricade and dominated Bayley outside and inside the ring. Tamina climbed to the top rope, but Sasha made the save.

When Tamina came off the top rope, Bayley put her knees up and then hit the Bayley to belly suplex. After the elbow smash, she only got a near fall. Lacey Evans took Sasha out with the Women’s Right. Tamina used a superkick and Samoan drop to pin the Smackdown champion.
