Regrettably, this match could not move further due to interference from Tamina and Dana Brooke. However, with the week that followed, Evans beat Naomi clean on WWE SmackDown.

A section of WWE fans did not respond well to this and #NaomiDeservesBetter started trending.

Coming to the latest episode of WWE SmackDown, even though Naomi’s win remains intact, Evans did not shy away from creating a fuss with the announcers.

On top of that, there are several from the WWE Universe who are not quite happy with a particular botch.

Now, some are of the opinion that it was a Canadian Destroyer gone wrong. Personally, it does not look like she was trying to attempt a Canadian Destroyer. Given the stance she uses and the flip she makes, it may have been her genuinely attempting the Blockbuster.

Regardless, not everyone is convinced. Some continue to call it a botch and are unhappy about it.

So, when a video emerged of the same, to clear the air, Naomi takes to Twitter to respond to the ones throwing hate at her.

“It’s just a sliding blockbuster not a Canadian Destroyer, not something I tried to copy from someone else, just a move I thought of bc I like doing blockbusters and wanted a different way to do it but anyway I’ll improve it”.

Now, Naomi does work on her innovations so it is likely she had something similar in mind while doing this. Hopefully, we will see a better version of the move in the future.
