Charlotte vs. Storm added to WWE SmackDown, RK-Bro set for action


WWE has added a couple of matches to this Friday's SmackDown in Los Angeles.

A non-title match between SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair and Toni Storm will take place on Friday's episode. In recent weeks, Charlotte has declined Storm's challenges for a title match. Charlotte threw two pies into Storm's face on SmackDown two weeks ago, but Storm got some revenge last week by hitting Charlotte with a pie to the face.

Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro will come to SmackDown for a non-title triple threat match against SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos and The New Day's Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston on Friday's show.

Woods & Kingston are set to challenge for The Usos' SmackDown Tag Team titles at WWE's Day 1 pay-per-view on Saturday, January 1.

Randy Orton & Riddle defeated The Usos when the two teams faced off at Survivor Series last month.

Jeff Hardy vs. Baron Corbin had originally been scheduled for Friday's SmackDown, but that will no longer be happening following Hardy's release. The updated lineup for the episode is listed below:

  • Non-title match: SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Toni Storm
  • Non-title match: SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) vs. The New Day (Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston) vs. Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle)
  • Naomi vs. Sonya Deville
  • Xia Li debuts

Los Angeles' Staples Center is hosting Friday's SmackDown. It will be the last WWE show at the venue before it officially changes its name to Arena.
