This week’s episode of SmackDown Live saw the former Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair returning to action in a dark match after staying away from the company for a while.
Charlotte originally took some time off back in June to be with Andrade after the latter’s mother passed away. She hasn’t appeared on WWE programming since the June 4rth episode of SmackDown Live.
Flair competed in a triple threat match at that episode and originally returned to action this past Monday Night when she again competed in a triple threat match at a SmackDown brand Live Event from Glens Falls, NY.
She then wrestled the current SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley in a singles match during the dark main event after this week’s episode of SmackDown Live.
Bayley’s title was on the line for this bout and the former Raw roster member was able to defend her title successfully in this dark main event after the show.
Though this wasn’t the only dark match on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live as Ali and Buddy Murphy continued their series of dark matches before the show went on air.
These two have been competing in similar dark matches before the show for the last few weeks and similar to those bouts, Ali was once again able to defeat Murphy in the match.
