Pollock reports that Zelina Vega and Carmella were scheduled to team up against Liv Morgan and Toni Storm. There was no mention of the match during tonight’s broadcast.
Earlier in the day, Morgan made a reference to Madison Square Garden in a tweet and it’s clear that she was intending to wrestle at the time she sent her tweet.
As seen below, it looks like Vega was in her ring gear and ready to wrestle on the show. It’s baffling that she was not included on the show on the anniversary weekend of 9/11. Vega lost her father in the 9/11 attack in 2001.
On a related note, it looks like the Naomi – Sonya Deville storyline was also nixed from this week’s SmackDown. There’s no word yet on if this is related to the tag team match mixed above.
Naomi was brought to SmackDown from RAW last month, but she has not wrestled yet and the storyline is that Deville is too busy or occupied to deal with Naomi. Deville keeps telling Naomi “next week” but still brushes her off.
As seen below, Naomi has been playing up the storyline on Twitter. She started tweeting about tonight’s show earlier in the day, and even posted a backstage segment where she confronted Deville. This time Deville promised she will deal with Naomi next week.
One of the segments Naomi tweeted features Shotzi Blackheart and Tegan Nox. You can see Naomi’s tweets below:
