Quote Naomi is backstage getting her makeup done when Ruby Riot from NXT interrupts. She says she wants to introduce Naomi to two of her fiends - Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan. They all gang up on Naomi and beat her down. Becky Lynch tries to make the save, but they beat her down too. Refs call for a doctor to help Becky.
 
It would have been better if their booking didn't copy Raw by doing a three on one backstage beatdown to introduce them to the main roster.
 
To me they are just three random women, so it's interesting to see how they get built up for me to start caring about them.
 
That said Sarah Logan is hot and been trained by Taka Michinoku so I have high hopes LOL

Becky must need time off for another "procedure"

to be fair, it was presented differently to Raw, as Raw had Paige distract and then a sneak attack before she joined in. I've seen some of Ruby and Liv's work, and I've liked what I've seen, and both shows have needed deeper female rosters for some time, Raw suffering more since the removal of Emma.

I can see several exciting programmes if this is all handled right.

Agreed. Within the same one big storyline, they could easily create three fresh one on one fueds.
 
Quote We go to a backstage interview with Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, and Sarah Logan. They say their group is called the Riot Squad. Ruby says they're there to turn the SmackDown women's division upside down.

- The New Day cuts a pre-taped promo for some deals on WWEShop.com.

- Natalya, Charlotte & Naomi vs. Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan & Ruby Riott: Natalya and Ruby start this one off and Ruby takes control early on with strikes. She boots Natalya in the head, then Charlotte and Sarah tag in. Natalya leaves the ring and says she doesn't want anything to do with any of them, she's outta here. Charlotte and Liv now go at it and Charlotte tees off with a series of chops to the chest. The Riot Squad turns it around off a cheap shot, and Ruby now works on keeping Charlotte grounded. Naomi now starts going at it at ringside with Liv and Sarah, and they double team her and beat her down. They slingshot Naomi into the steel steps at ringside as Ruby keeps Charlotte grounded in the ring. The ref calls for help for Naomi at ringside. Back in the ring, all three women take turns continuing the beat down on Charlotte. Charlotte finally starts firing up and she sends Ruby face-first into the middle turnbuckle. She hits a shot on Liv, but Sarah hits a cheap shot on Charlotte over the ropes to kill her momentum. Ruby capitalizes on the cheap shot and rolls up Charlotte for the three count.

Winners: Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan & Ruby Riott

- As the Riot Squad celebrates their win, we see Naomi getting put on a stretcher at ringside.

 
We have our latest E group that has "the" at the front of their group name.
 
I hate the name they have been given and don't get why they have added a T to Riott so her name now looks like a spelling mistake.

I liked the way this was booked

Natalya pissed off so that Charlotte and Naomi had a numerical disadvantage which gives them an out for losing.

The Riott squad looked dominant especially when they destroyed Naomi and then were left 3 v 1 against charlotte

This was the highlight of a very poor smackdown for me

I'll give credit where credit is due. I've been very hard on Liv Morgan. I've never seen anything in her ever since it was made clear she was going to be one of the women pushed on the NXT roster following the bland split. 

Since getting on the main roster as a part of the Riot act, or whatever, she's shown a lot of personality in her facial expressions. She seems to make an even better looking Harley Quinn knockoff than Alexa Bliss. I still question her ability in the ring, but her personality has taken a number of big steps forward.

However, unless something is done ASAP to address the obvious copy & paste booking, and make it seems sensible and interesting rather than lazy and boring, it's really gonna have a hard time going anywhere.

Becky Lynch is off filming Marine 6 with The Miz. The rumoured abortion also has never been proven to have happened and all signs suggest that Wrestletalk.TV completely made it up to gain views.

I think they did enough this week to deviate the two groups somewhat. There are obviously still plenty of differences, and the promos were very similar, but Riott Squad have now shown that they're cohesive and can handle themselves in the ring. Sarah Logan's size advantage also lends Riott Squad more of a Shield dynamic. 

If not for having Paige as the leader I doubt Absolution would get over quickly, whereas Riott Squad is actively backing up what they're saying. Good sign moving forwards.

Questions would have to be asked if in week two, already 3 can't beat up one person.

The backstage interview was OK at introducing the group a bit more, but could have been much more heelish.

I don't expect them to beat up the interviewer, but they could have put the frighteners on her so she thought they could turn on her like they have others.

it failed slightly for me, mainly because once Nattie pissed off, this should have been a Shield like beatdown. it sounds weird to complain a match was too competitive, but this early in the groups life, they should have just killed in the ring and looked like they barely broke a sweat.

not to say they didn't look good, but there were also obvious signs that they were nervous of being on such a big stage so soon.

enjoyable, but they need to dominate for a bit first before the inevitable implosion over the Smackdown Women's title.

The Riott Squad is shown backstage as Ruby Riott warms up for her match against Charlotte.

- Charlotte Flair vs. Ruby Riott: This one is a non-title match, and Natalya is on commentary. We see a recap of The Riott Swad's activity in their first weeks on the roster. The opening bell sounds and they go back and forth until Liv and Logan provide a distraction and Ruby rolls up Charlotte for an early pin attempt. Flair comes right back with a fall-away slam. Another distraction by Logan leads to Ruby hitting an STO on Flair. Ruby is now working on keeping Charlotte grounded, and the fight spills out to ringside. Natalya gets involved and Charlotte drops her. Natalya comes back and hits Charlotte, and the ref calls for the DQ.

Winner via DQ: Charlotte Flair

- After the match, The Riott Squad beats down Charlotte as Natalya watches. They continue to triple team Charlotte around ringside until Naomi comes out for the save. Naomi drops Logan and Liv first, then hits the Rear View on Ruby. Live and Logan pull Ruby to safety and they run up the ramp. Lana, Tamina and Carmella appear on the ramp to block the Riott Squad, and they start brawling. The Riott squad retreats again as the other women stare them down.

So pretty much a carbon copy of the Raw booking, with the roster coming out to confront the new female faction.
 
I need a reason to care about Morgan and Logan because at the moment it looks like heavily tattooed woman and her two bitches.
 
All three need to be given a chance to create their own identities.

It is beyond my level of comprehension why they let Naomi get the first pin on Riott Squad  AND that it was on the leader Ruby. I can not even begin to understand, it defies all logic and reasoning. Especially when Charlotte is her tag partner...I just can't understand how that happened. Even two weeks later, it is still baffling to me.

That's all.
