Contract Signing And Women's Tag Team Title Tournament Bout Added To 8/12 WWE SmackDown

A new match and segment have been added to Friday's WWE SmackDown.

WWE announced that Liv Morgan and Shayna Baszler will sign the contract for the SmackDown Women's Championship match at WWE Clash at the Castle on the August 12 episode of WWE SmackDown. Baszler earned her shot at the title by winning a gauntlet match on last Friday on SmackDown.

Plus, Raquel Rodriguez & Aliyah will take on Shotzi & Xia Li as part of the WWE Women's Tag Team Title Tournament on the August 12 episode of WWE SmackDown. Dakota Kai & IYO SKY advanced in the tournament on WWE Raw when they defeated Tamina and Dana Brooke.

From WWE:

Just three weeks ahead of their clash at the castle in Cardiff, Wales, SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan and Shayna Baszler will sign on the dotted line.

Baszler won the right to face Morgan after overcoming six other Superstars in a frenetic Gauntlet Match last week on SmackDown. Now, Baszler faces a weakened and vulnerable Morgan, whose arm was brutally mangled at the hands of Ronda Rousey, both during and after their title match at SummerSlam.

This is sure to be a must-see contract signing, as Morgan and Baszler are both known for their fire in the heat of the moment.

What will Morgan and Baszler say to each other just weeks away from WWE Clash at the Castle? Find out this Friday on SmackDown at 8/7 C on FOX!

The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament began on Monday Night Raw when Dakota Kai and IYO SKY bested 24/7 Champion Dana Brooke and Tamina. Now, the tournament continues as Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah take on Shotzi and Xia Li.

Shotzi and Li have been aligned for the past few weeks and may have an advantage as they have the most chemistry going into the match.

However, Rodriguez brings incredible intensity and is coming off an incredible performance in the Gauntlet Match, wherein she pinned four other Superstars before losing to Shayna Baszler in the final match.
