Two segments announced for WWE SmackDown


Two segments have been announced for this Friday's Extreme Rules fallout edition of SmackDown.

Bayley & Sasha Banks will "address the championship landscape" in WWE following this past Sunday's Extreme Rules pay-per-view. There will also be a Miz TV segment on Friday's SmackDown with Naomi appearing as the guest.

Bayley & Banks are the Women's Tag Team Champions and Bayley holds the SmackDown Women's Championship. Banks is currently in possession of Asuka's Raw Women's title belt, but it was clarified on Raw this Monday that Banks isn't actually champion. After Asuka accidentally spit green mist into the referee's eyes, Bayley interfered, put on the referee's shirt, and counted the pin for Banks in her match against Asuka at Extreme Rules.

Stephanie McMahon appeared via video on this week's Raw and said Banks didn't win the match on Sunday, but Asuka didn't either. She announced that Asuka and Banks will face off for the Raw Women's Championship on Raw next Monday. The title can change hands via pinfall, submission, countout, disqualification, or if anyone interferes.

Bayley retained her SmackDown Women's Championship against Nikki Cross at Extreme Rules. Kairi Sane defeated Bayley in a non-title match on this Monday's Raw.

After Naomi lost to Lacey Evans on SmackDown last week, the hashtag "#NaomiDeservesBetter" trended on Twitter. That will be discussed during Friday's Miz TV segment:

The Miz & John Morrison always have the finger on the pulse of sports-entertainment, and they’ll be joined by last week’s center of attention when Naomi stops by 'Miz TV.'

Naomi set social media aglow last week after her loss to Lacey Evans led many in the WWE Universe to back up the exuberant Superstar. The Sassy Southern Belle gained control of the match by tying Naomi’s hair to the ropes and then landing a Woman’s Right to get the victory.

What will Naomi have to say about last week’s loss and the reaction from the WWE Universe?

Tune in to Friday Night SmackDown on FOX at 8/7 C to catch the latest edition of 'Miz TV.'

Jeff Hardy and Sheamus facing off in a bar fight is also set for this week's SmackDown.
