The Universal Championship won't be the only title on the line in Saudi Arabia, however. Bailey will make history as the first woman to ever defend a WWE Championship in Saudi Arabia when she faces the winner of Carmella vs Naomi on the February 21 episode of WWE SmackDown

Carmela had initially earned an opportunity to face Bayley for the championship on February 7 when she defeated Alexa Bliss, Naomi, and Dana Brooke in a fatal 4-way match. She would have the match against Bayley on February 14th, and the incumbent Champion would cheat her way to a victory, which would then lead to both Naomi and Carmella attacking the champion due to the fact that they are both fed up with her new code of conduct.

Later on the February 14 show, Bayley would announce that she would defend her championship in Saudi Arabia and claimed she did not care against who, which would lead to both Carmella and Naomi pleading their case and the number one contender's bout being made.
