Women's title rematch announced for next week's WWE SmackDown

A SmackDown Women's Championship rematch is set for next week.

On Saturday's episode of Talking Smack, it was announced that Bianca Belair will defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against Carmella next Friday. Belair retained her title by defeating Carmella on last night's SmackDown.

Carmella posted a video after last night's match where she complained about only having six days to prepare for it. Carmella also complained about Belair using her hair in the match.

An interview with Belair responding to Carmella aired on Talking Smack. Belair agreed to give Carmella a rematch next week and told Carmella to be careful what she asks for.

Belair was originally scheduled to defend her title against Bayley in an "I Quit" match at Money in the Bank, but that match had to be pulled from the show when Bayley suffered a torn ACL during training. It was announced last week that Belair would instead be defending her title against Carmella on last night's SmackDown. Belair is no longer wrestling at Money in the Bank.

Next Friday's SmackDown is taking place from two different locations. There will be multiple matches taking place at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami, Florida, with the remainder of the show being held at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio. Here's the updated lineup for the episode.

  • SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair defends against Carmella
  • Toni Storm debuts
