Ronda Rousey vs. Sonya Deville, two title matches set for WWE SmackDown

The SmackDown Tag Team and Intercontinental titles will be defended on next week's SmackDown.

Ronda Rousey vs. Sonya Deville, along with two title matches, has been announced for next week’s SmackDown.

Alongside Rousey vs. Deville, The Viking Raiders will challenge The Usos for the SmackDown Tag Team titles while Sami Zayn will defend the Intercontinental title against Ricochet.

At the start of tonight’s show, Deville jumped Rousey as she was listening to Charlotte Flair on the entrance ramp. Flair attacked Rousey’s leg, but Rousey was still able to ward off Deville. Adam Pearce backstage later told Deville WWE higher-ups had confirmed a match between her and Rousey for next week.

Zayn had a confrontation with Johnny Knoxville, which ended with Zayn laying out Knoxville. Pearce was scolding Zayn backstage when Ricochet came up and challenged Zayn, who refused. Pearce then made the match.

After they jumped The Viking Raiders at Elimination Chamber last weekend, effectively canceling the SmackDown Tag Team title match on the show, The Usos were jumped by The Viking Raiders on tonight’s show.
