Four Horsewomen tag rematch set for WWE SmackDown's FOX debut


The final episode of SmackDown on USA Network included a match announcement for the show's FOX premiere.

Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair will team against Sasha Banks & SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley on SmackDown's FOX debut. It's taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Friday, October 4.

The theme of the FOX premiere is SmackDown's 20th anniversary celebration, and it will also feature Brock Lesnar challenging for Kofi Kingston's WWE Championship.

Lynch & Charlotte vs. Banks & Bayley is a rematch from the September 9 episode of Raw at Madison Square Garden. Lynch & Charlotte got the win in that match.

The Friday Night SmackDown premiere comes in advance of Lynch defending her Raw Women's Championship against Banks in a Hell in a Cell match at WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on October 6. Tonight's SmackDown ended with an angle where Banks attacked Lynch as she was being interviewed backstage.

Banks & Bayley also defeated Charlotte & Carmella earlier on SmackDown tonight. Lynch saved Charlotte from Banks and Bayley after the match.
