SmackDown Women's title match added to WWE Extreme Rules


SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley now has her challenger for Extreme Rules.

Nikki Cross defeated Lacey Evans, Dana Brooke, and Alexa Bliss in a fatal four-way match on tonight's SmackDown and will challenge Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Championship at Extreme Rules. The pay-per-view is taking place on Sunday, July 19.

Evans hit the Woman's Right on Brooke near the end of the number one contender's match, but Cross then rolled up Evans to get the win.

Bayley and Sasha Banks were on commentary for the match. Banks will also be involved in a Women's title match at Extreme Rules. She's challenging Asuka for the Raw Women's Championship.

Bayley & Banks are the current Women's Tag Team Champions. They won the titles from Cross & Bliss on SmackDown earlier this month.

"WWE Extreme Rules: The Horror Show" is the full name for Extreme Rules. WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defending his title against Dolph Ziggler has also been announced for the PPV, along with Universal Champion Braun Strowman facing Bray Wyatt in a non-title Wyatt Swamp Fight.
