WWE Battleground continued to deliver Sunday night with the No. 1 Fatal Five Way Elimination match that featured Lana, Tamina, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Natalya.
In what might be considered a stunner, Natalya outlasted the other four competitors to book her ticket to Summerslam to face Naomi for the WWE Women’s title.
Natalya, a one-time WWE Divas champion, is a logical choice to face Naomi in terms of the face/heel dynamic.
Lynch, Charlotte and Natalya stole the show, with Lynch getting two eliminations before being knocked out by Natalya.
It ultimately came down to Natalya and Charlotte, and after several near falls from Charlotte, Natalya ultimately scored the pin to secure her spot as No. 1 contender for Naomi’s title.
