Bayley to defend WWE SmackDown Women's title at Super ShowDown

Super ShowDown 2020 will include WWE's first-ever Women's Championship match in Saudi Arabia.

WWE has announced that SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley will defend her title at Super ShowDown on Thursday, February 27. Carmella and Naomi will face off on SmackDown next week to determine who will challenge Bayley in Saudi Arabia.

Bayley retained her title against Carmella in the opening match of tonight's SmackDown. Carmella hit a superkick on Bayley during the match, but Bayley rolled out of the ring. The finish was Bayley pinning Carmella while using the ropes for leverage.

Bayley attacked Carmella after their match tonight. Naomi then came out and went face-to-face with Bayley. Carmella pushed Bayley, then Naomi hit an enzuigiri on Bayley and Carmella gave Bayley a superkick.

Carmella and Naomi both did interviews later on SmackDown saying they wanted a title shot against Bayley.

After women's matches weren't permitted for the first three shows in WWE's 10-year deal with Saudi Arabia, the first women's match in the country took place at Crown Jewel in October 2019. Natalya defeated Lacey Evans at the show.

Super ShowDown is taking place at Mohammed Abdu Arena on the Boulevard in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and will air live on the WWE Network starting at noon Eastern time. Here's the updated card for the event:

  • Universal Champion "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt defending against Goldberg
  • WWE Champion Brock Lesnar defending against Ricochet
  • Roman Reigns vs. Baron Corbin in a steel cage match
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley defending against Carmella or Naomi
  • SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E) defending against The Miz & John Morrison
