Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Carmella will meet in a #1 Contenders match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship on SmackDown this Tuesday, WWE has announced. The winner will face Asuka at Royal Rumble on 27th January 2019.
All 3 of them staked their claim in front of Triple H as the next opponent for Asuka in a backstage segment. Triple H, at the time said that the authority will think about it and let them know about their decision. WWE announced the match on their website:
“Charlotte and Becky both feel that they should be SmackDown Women’s Champion at this present moment and only are not because of Ronda Rousey’s interference in their match against Asuka at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. Carmella, who reigned as SmackDown Women’s Champion for a staggering 130 days in 2018, has multiple victories over Flair, Lynch and Asuka, and believes that puts her right in line for another title opportunity.”
Another Match that is announced for this week’s SmackDown is The Usos taking on The Bar who are the current SmackDown Tag Team Champions. If they win on Tuesday, they will get a title shot in the future, most possibly at the Royal Rumble.
