Women's title match confirmed for WWE SmackDown


WWE has confirmed when Carmella is getting her shot at the SmackDown Women's Championship.

SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley will defend her title against Carmella on SmackDown this Friday night. The match announcement was made during tonight's episode of Raw.

Carmella became the number one contender to Bayley's title by defeating Naomi, Alexa Bliss, and Dana Brooke in a fatal four-way match in the main event of SmackDown last Friday.

Carmella pinned Naomi in the fatal four-way match after hitting two superkicks. Naomi had hit the Rear View on Bliss prior to that, but Carmella broke up the pin.

Bayley came into the ring and attacked Carmella after she won the fatal four-way.

In an email sent out hyping last week's SmackDown, a graphic said the winner of the fatal four-way would get their title shot at Super ShowDown, but that was never said on SmackDown or mentioned anywhere else.

This week's SmackDown is taking place at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The show will also feature a Valentine's Day date segment with Mandy Rose and Otis.
