Six-woman tag match, Miz TV with Jeff Hardy set for WWE SmackDown


A six-woman tag match and a couple of segments have been announced for tonight's SmackDown.

Charlotte Flair, Asuka & Becky Lynch will be teaming against SmackDown Women's Champion Carmella, Peyton Royce & Billie Kay. The IIconics got a win over Asuka & Lynch last week, while Charlotte stood tall after her contract signing with Carmella.

The tag match comes five days before Charlotte gets her rematch for Carmella's title at Backlash. Carmella cashed in her Money in the Bank briefcase to win the championship last month after Charlotte had been attacked by Royce and Kay.

Another title bout should become official for Backlash as Jeff Hardy appears on Miz TV tonight. Hardy has been involved in a program with Randy Orton and Shelton Benjamin since winning the United States Championship and coming to SmackDown in the Superstar Shakeup.

WWE is returning to the Bell Centre in Montreal for the second straight night for tonight's SmackDown. AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura will finish building to Sunday's WWE Championship match, with Nakamura demanding an apology for their double countout and post-match brawl from the Greatest Royal Rumble.
