– Following Peyton Royce’s victory over Naomi on SmackDown LIVE last week, The IIconics doubled down on their verbal jabs, drawing the ire of the WWE Universe by mocking Naomi and the hometown Toronto Raptors prior to Billie Kay trying to dim “The Glow.”
Naomi looked strong in the early goings after her tough but controversial loss to Royce a week prior, and she began to string together her signature, dynamic offense on Kay. Unfortunately for Naomi, the numbers game would again prove to be too much, as Royce jabbed Naomi in the face when the official wasn’t looking, allowing Kay to secure the victory with a roll-up for the win.
With her victory over Naomi, Kay scored her first-ever singles win on SmackDown LIVE and as a member of WWE’s main roster (even including non-televised events). Her record previously at 0-5 in singles competition on SmackDown LIVE.
It was also her first televised singles victory since beating Daria Berenato (before she became Sonya Deville) on NXT on December 21, 2016.
