As seen at Sunday’s WWE Elimination Chamber event, Naomi defeated Alexa Bliss to capture the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship. It’s being said that the reason WWE had Naomi win the Championship is so that she can go into WrestleMania 33 as champion because she’s from Orlando and that’s where the event is being held.
In regards to Naomi’s match at WrestleMania, we heard a few weeks back that the SmackDown Women’s Title wasn’t going to be defended on the card. The original plan at that time would see the SmackDown Women’s match be a multi-persons match, presumably a tag-match. However, those plans could have changed between now and then.
