Tonight on SmackDown, there was a new episode of the KO show and Kevin Owens had some big stars as guests. Owens invited SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair to their Women’s Tag Team match against Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax at Fastlane. Owens started the show by talking about his tough month, but he will always fight. He then introduced Belair and Banks and talked about their WrestleMania match and how it would have gone if they had actually won the Tag Titles.
A few weeks ago he talked about their loss against Baszler and Jax and said they might have lost because of some tension. Then he remembered Reginald, and Banks said it wasn’t his fault she was so beautiful, and that he was in love.
I’m kind of the Michael Jordan of the women’s division, and maybe one day you can be @KingJames. – @SashaBanksWWE to @BiancaBelairWWE#SmackDown pic.twitter.com/SHb3pgIHJt

Belair then says that this is a problem, and that it bothers him, and that he’s going to cause problems with their match. Banks then called herself the Michelle Jordan of the women’s division and said Belair could be LeBron James. This irritated Belair, who said she could follow the path Banks had laid out, but that she was on her own.
Jax, Baszler and Reginald then entered the ring, but were interrupted by Natalya and Tamina, with whom they were to have a match.
At first it was Banks and Tamina, but Natalia soon joined them. Banks would dodge a few attacks and then hit Natalya a little and throw her back into the ring. Natalya brought Banks to her corner and tagged Tamina in. They hit Banks with a series of kicks before trying to go for the pin, but Banks was thrown out. Then Natalya would lock up the hold and punish Banks, but Banks would turn around and almost get to Belair, but Natalya would intercept her. Banks broke free and tagged Beler, who went to work for Natalya.

Belyar then pinned Natalya, but Jax sent Reginald into the ring to distract the referee and it worked. Natalya gets in the corner and hits Belair with a Clothesline. Banks then joined Reginald at the announcer’s table and she chased him around the ring, preparing her for Natalia’s attack. This also left Belair alone in the ring and allowed Tamina to get the pin and the win.
Belair got mad at Sasha, said he wouldn’t lose, and asked why he was there. They lost because of him. You’re entertaining him. He’s looking at you. It’s up to you, Belair said.
