WWE has announced two matches and a segment for September 29, 2023, episode of SmackDown, including the United States title bout and Charlotte Flair vs Bayley.
Rey Mysterio will defend his United States Championship on September 29 episode of SmackDown against Santos Escobar. During the previous episode of SmackDown Rey Mysterio promised that he would give the opportunity to Escobar for a title match.
Escobar was initially scheduled to face Austin Theory for the United States title match, but he had to withdraw due to injury. Rey replaced him and defeated Theory to win the title. Now, Escobar is set to get another opportunity to challenge for the United States title.
Charlotte Flair is also scheduled for the September 29 episode of SmackDown where she will face Bayley in a one-on-one match.
During the September 22 episode of SmackDown, Iyo Sky emerged victorious against Asuka in a WWE Women’s Championship match. Charlotte Flair was present at ringside during the match and attacked Bayley when she tried to interfere in the match. This confrontation ultimately led to a match between Flair and Bayley scheduled for the following week.
Bobby Lashley is also scheduled for the show where he will present on the Grayson Waller Effect show. On the September 22 episode of SmackDown, The Street Profits were defeated by LWO, and it seems that Bobby Lashley was not entirely pleased with The Street Profits’ performance during the match.
September 29, 2023 episode of WWE SmackDown will be live from Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, CA, US. Below is the announced line-up for the show:
- Rey Mysterio vs Santos Escobar – United States title match
