WWE split up the newly formed tag team Shotzi and Nox in the 2021 WWE Draft. Shotzi drove her tank to the ring and made a massive statement by inserting herself into a championship contenders match with the 13x Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, but would then layout “The Boss,” signaling a new persona for her.
Last night WWE Smackdown didn’t open up with the Head of The Table; instead, it opened up with the Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair addressing the WWE Universe. Flair would mock the women’s locker room on Smackdown and brag that every time Charlotte Flair wins a title, it’s “Just Another Friday.” The Queen was rudely interrupted by “The Boss.” Sasha Banks addressed The Queen and demanded a women’s championship match. However, Charlotte would deny and insist that it was time for “fresh faces” and “fresh matchups.”
Flair’s challenge was the perfect signal for Shotzi to ride her tank down the ramp accepting Charlotte’s proposal, “if you’re looking for someone you’ve never faced before, i’m your girl.” The match would highlight Shotzi’s in-ring athleticism and build her up as a future star in the making for Smackdown. Throughout the match, Banks would remain ringside rooting for Shotzi. At one point in the match, Shotzi would land an awkward suicide dive outside the ring but was caught by Flair.
Shotzi continues to take “The Queen” to her limit, showing the WWE Universe exactly what she’s capable of when given the opportunity. Banks accidentally distracted Shotzi and allowed Flair to hit Shotzi with a Natural Selection for the 1-2-3. After the match, Shotzi would appear upset with Banks for costing her the championship contender’s match. She began to yell at Banks, “It’s all your fault,” before attacking Banks and ushering her into a new era of her character. Shotzi slammed Banks into her tank before rolling Sasha in the ring and hitting her with “The Ballpit” (a divining top rope senton) that would TCB (take care of business). The WWE Universe was stunned as “The Boss” was laid out by the up-and-coming fresh face of Smackdown.
After Smackdown went off the air Shotzi was interviewed by “The Female Voice of the WWE” Kayla Braxton, who asked Shotzi why she attacked Sasha. “I am fed up. Plain and simple. I’m fed up. I am done being the happy, easy-going Shotzi. I have been screwed over on title opportunity over title opportunity. My tag partner left me. I came here just wanting to have fun and kick ass. Well, you know what? I haven’t had fun in a long time. So there’s just one thing left to do. Sasha was my breaking point, and now she’s my target. I am not letting anyone walk over me anymore. I am running over everyone in my way.”
Only time will tell if Shotzi will be that new face of the Smackdown Women’s Division, but she has undoubtedly made a name for herself by attacking “The Blueprint.” The WWE Universe was left on the edge of their seats to see what’s next for Shotzi.
