Triple Threat Match For The WWE Women’s Title Confirmed For SummerSlam – As noted, WWE originally announced this afternoon that Asuka’s SummerSlam opponent would be confirmed on tonight’s episode of SmackDown. However, the company announced it hours before the show went live on FS1.
As expected, Asuka will defend her title against Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair.
Here is the official “preview” for the match:
In recent weeks on SmackDown, Asuka’s respective title defenses against Flair and Belair have ended in chaotic controversy. Against The Queen, Bianca hopped the barricade to engage the 14-time Women’s Champion. Against The EST of WWE, Flair attempted to stop Bayley and Ms. Money in the Bank IYO SKY from interfering in order to protect her own interest, but she accidently took out Belair to cause a disqualification.
With the situation quickly spinning out of control, the WWE Women’s Champion, The Queen and EST of WWE will battle it out in a total free-for-all The Biggest Event of the Summer.
