• Naomi Reacts To Fans Calling Her Out For A Botch On SmackDown
Naomi and Lacey Evans collided in their third encounter in July on last week’s SmackDown. During the match, Naomi hit Evans with a move which many fans thought was a botched Canadian Destroyer.
Some fans blamed Naomi for not executing the move properly, while some of them blamed Evans for not selling it properly. Some fans even blamed WWE for not editing out the spot, as it was a taped show.
A fan posted the video of the spot on Twitter and asked what the two wrestlers were trying to do, to which Naomi replied that it was a Sliding Blockbuster, not a Canadian Destroyer.
“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 ✌️”
