A true dream match.
The current SmackDown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch returned to WWE TV on tonight's WWE SmackDown broadcast in Minneapolis. Becky was out of action for precautionary reasons due to the concussion and broken nose she suffered at the hands of Nia Jax on RAW's go-home show for Survivor Series. Becky returned to a thunderous ovation but she wasted no time getting straight to business. Becky called Charlotte Flair out to the ring to discuss what went down at Survivor Series where Becky claims Charlotte had to "channel her inner Becky Lynch" in order to deliver a beat down to the RAW Women's Ronda Rousey.
Charlotte and Becky then began trading barbs until SmackDown Live GM Paige intervened and stated that at WWE's TLC pay-per-view, Becky and Charlotte will clash in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match with the SmackDown Live Women's Championship hanging in the balance.
The entire SmackDown women's locker room made their way out to the stage and voiced that they could've done what Charlotte Flair did at Survivor Series and each woman felt that they should have the chance to earn a future title shot. Paige then made it official that a Battle Royal featuring every woman on the SmackDown roster other than Charlotte and Becky would be contested and the winner would be added to the SmackDown Live Women's Title match at TLC.
The final two competitors left in the ring were Asuka and Sonya Deville. The two strikers traded fists, slaps and kicks until it was Asuka who caught Sonya with a knee-lift that knocked Sonya out of the ring and once the bell rung, Asuka was officially added to the first-ever Women's TLC match so at WWE TLC on December 16th, Becky Lynch will defend the SmackDown Live Women's Championship against Charlotte Flair and Asuka in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match.
