Women's title rematch, tag team bout set for WWE SmackDown


A Women’s title match and a tag team bout are scheduled for next week’s episode of SmackDown.

After Carmella lost the SmackDown Women’s Championship on Sunday to Charlotte Flair, she entered Paige’s office tonight on SmackDown and demanded a one-on-one title match against Charlotte -- effectively invoking her rematch clause. After R-Truth came in to challenge Carmella, only to be rebuffed, Paige made the match for next week.

Meanwhile, The Bar were interviewed by Renee Young and made it clear that they wanted to challenge the winners of tonight’s main event between The New Day and The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown Tag Team titles. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows interrupted, pretending to audition for the pre-show panel. Gallows even had a British accent. After the shenanigans, Anderson and Gallows challenged The Bar to a match.

Next week’s SmackDown will be held at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada.
