Nikki Cross vs. Carmella Set For WWE SmackDown

Women's bout added to tonight's WWE SmackDown.

WWE announced that Nikki Cross will take on Carmella tonight on SmackDown Live. Cross picked up a big victory over Dana Brooke on last night's Raw in a Beat The Clock Challenge, which allowed her to pick the stipulation for the SmackDown Women's Title match between Bayley and Alexa Bliss at Extreme Rules on Sunday. Cross inserted herself into the match, teaming with Bliss to make it a 2-on-1 handicap match.
