Charlotte Flair vs. Sonya Deville set for WWE SmackDown


Another match is set for SmackDown's go-home show for Hell in a Cell.

WWE announced today that SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair will face Sonya Deville in a non-title match on Tuesday. It will be part of the final build to Charlotte defending her title against Becky Lynch at Hell in a Cell on September 16.

Lynch responded to a tweet from Charlotte about how Charlotte embraces every challenge whenever she steps into the ring: "Charlotte. One, you tweet like an Android. Two, I'm going to reintroduce your face to my fist on Tuesday. #TickTock #IBooTheWoo"

Charlotte and Lynch took part in a split-screen interview segment on SmackDown last week to further their storyline. Lynch vowed to take the title from Charlotte, and Charlotte asked what Lynch's excuse will be when she loses this time.

The Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana is hosting Tuesday's SmackDown. Cesaro & Sheamus vs. Rusev & Aiden English in a number one contender's match has also been announced for the episode, with the winning team advancing to challenge for The New Day's Tag Team titles at Hell in a Cell.
