SmackDown Coverage – February 21, 2017

We go to the ring and out comes SmackDown General Manager Daniel Brya. Bryan mentions WrestleMania 33 and calls SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi to the ring. Bryan says everyone here truly believes she deserves it. Bryan says they are so proud of her but that’s why what he’s about to do is the hardest thing he’s had to do as General Manager. Bryan says he and Shane McMahon have reviewed her medical records with doctors and due to her not being able to defend the title within 30 days, he asks her to relinquish the title. Naomi thanks Bryan for his kind words and says she knows he knows what she’s going through. Naomi talks about how she felt like she was on top of the mountain at Elimination Chamber but now she’s in a free-fall. She feels bad for her fans who have been here for the journey, she feels like she’s letting them down. Naomi says she knows WrestleMania 33 is probably gone when she hands over the title. Naomi hands over the title as fans boo.

Naomi sends a message to whoever is “borrowing” her title – she promises everyone will feel the glow when she’s able to come back. Before Naomi can get up the ramp, out comes Alexa Bliss. Bliss takes the mic and loves what just happened. She mocks Naomi and offers to solve the problem with Bryan. She suggests Bryan return the title to her. Bryan says Bliss is the former champion and he supposes it does make sense, but he’s not going to do that. Bryan makes Bliss vs. Becky Lynch for the vacant title.

Will injured SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi be ready to fend off Alexa Bliss?

Last week, Naomi achieved a lifelong dream by capturing the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Alexa Bliss at WWE Elimination Chamber. However, in the process of carrying out such a monumental victory, the glowing Superstar suffered an injury that rendered her unable to grant Bliss her guaranteed title rematch two days later on SmackDown LIVE.

In response, The Wicked Witch of WWE opted to give the new titleholder one week before coming to take back what she believes is hers. Will Naomi be ready to throw down? What will Alexa do if she isn’t?
