Vega & Carmella vs. Banks & Naomi set for WWE SmackDown

A change has been made to the card for Friday's SmackDown.

WWE has announced a change to the card for tonight's SmackDown.

WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Zelina Vega & Carmella will now face Sasha Banks & Naomi in a non-title match on SmackDown tonight. It was originally announced that Banks would be taking on Vega in a singles match on the show.

Vega & Carmella defending their titles against Banks & Naomi and Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan in a triple threat match has been announced for WrestleMania 38 night two on Sunday, April 3. In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that a fourth team is expected to be added to that match.

"While not yet announced, the women’s tag title match as of this week was scheduled as a four-team match," Meltzer wrote. "The fourth team would involve Natalya but they had not decided on her partner as of the last word, although it’s very possible that decision will be made this week."

On last week's SmackDown, Naomi defeated Carmella in a singles match.

Ripley & Morgan were added to the Women's Tag Team title match at WrestleMania after they defeated Vega & Carmella in a non-title bout on Raw this Monday.

Tonight's SmackDown is being held at Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama. Big E & Kofi Kingston vs. Sheamus & Ridge Holland is also set for the episode.
