SmackDown star Aliyah could land in the Guinness Book of World Records after earning the fastest win in WWE history on Friday night.

The 27-year-old wrestler – who first signed with the company in 2015 before finally being called up to the blue brand in November – hasn’t featured on the show significantly in some time, but has made a impression with his return this week.

Aliyah found herself booked in a match against veteran Natalya, who gloated in the fact that she rightfully has three Guinness World Records – more matches, more PPV matches and more wins than any woman in WWE history.

She set her sights on another record, wanting to beat her opponent in under 3.8 seconds to secure the fastest victory ever.

The queen of harts tried to put the odds in her favor, beating Aliyah before the bell to give herself the edge and all but guarantee a quick win.

However, Aliyah – who insisted she could compete – reacted instantly when the bell rang and took victory by shock in 3.17 seconds, shattering the record in the process.

She looked delighted, while her opponent looked disappointed after being so confident beforehand.

This should set up a feud for the two stars, with the January 29 Royal Rumble providing the perfect backdrop for another big moment for Aliyah if she can knock out the veteran performer.

It’s a good way to build her up, with WWE being able to tell a different story rooted in Natalya’s on-screen arrogance about her very real accomplishments.

Elsewhere on SmackDown, Hall of Famer Lita made a huge impression when she returned and featured Charlotte Flair just weeks before they could face off in the Royal Rumble match.

Former Shield partners Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins squared off on the mic – but didn’t come to blows – as they prepare for their massive Universal Championship bout at the same event on January 29.

And Sami Zayn tried to outdo Johnny Knoxville with his own Jackass-style stunt that didn’t go as planned as he was embarrassed by Rick Boogs and Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura.

WWE SmackDown airs Friday nights at 1am on BT Sport 1.
