A huge triple threat bout has been signed for Tuesday's episode of SmackDown Live.
WWE announced that Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Carmella will compete in a triple threat bout on SmackDown with the winner receiving a shot at Asuka and the SmackDown Women's Title at the Royal Rumble.
Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Carmella all staked their claims as to why they would be most deserving to face off against SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka at Royal Rumble last week. All three Superstars will now get their chance as they’ll square off in a Triple Threat Match this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE and the winner will move on to face Asuka for the title in Phoenix, Arizona on Jan. 27.
Charlotte and Becky both feel that they should be SmackDown Women’s Champion at this present moment and only are not because of Ronda Rousey’s interference in their match against Asuka at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. Carmella, who reigned as SmackDown Women’s Champion for a staggering 130 days in 2018, has multiple victories over Flair, Lynch and Asuka, and believes that puts her right in line for another title opportunity.
All of this has been taken under consideration by the McMahon family, and now the three top challengers will collide this Tuesday night on the blue brand to prove who is most ready for Asuka next. Who will prevail? Find out this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network.
All three women made their case on why they should receive a title shot on the most recent episode of SmackDown. You can view that segment in the video above. Instead of arguments, the three will settle it in the ring.
Asuka won the SmackDown Women's Title at WWE TLC, defeating Lynch and Flair in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs bout. Under the old regime, Lynch would have been granted an automatic title rematch. But automatic rematches are a thing of the past in the new McMahon Era, meaning Lynch will have to earn her one-on-one shot at Asuka.
Fightful will provide live coverage of SmackDown beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
