Just five days before Carmella is set to defend the Smackdown Women’s Championship against the “Empress of Tomorrow” at WWE Extreme Rules, her chinless boy toy James Ellsworth took on Asuka in a Lumberjack Match on Smackdown Live with the entire women’s division at ringside to maintain order.
While the Japanese sensation was easily able to dispatch of Ellsworth with her patented Asuka Lock, it was the “Princess of Staten Island” that stood tall due to a post-match attack, largely due to the women’s division breaking down into an all-out brawl at ringside.
Smackdown General Manager Paige has officially announced that in order to make sure Ellsworth doesn’t get involved in Carmella’s big championship match at Extreme Rules, he will be suspended above the ring in a shark cage throughout the entirety of the bout. Because as well all know, shark cages are always 100-percent effective and nobody has ever interfered despite being locked inside of one.
