You never know when WWE could announce a big title match. They have several hours of programming every week to break news and it looks like they did it during a very unlikely time during Main Event this week. Becky Lynch lost her SmackDown Women’s Title at WWE TLC, but she’ll get another opportunity in Phoenix.
Asuka vs Becky Lynch for the SmackDown Women’s Title is now confirmed for the Royal Rumble event on January 27th. This will be The Man’s chance to regain her title.
It should be important to note that just because Becky Lynch is facing Asuka doesn’t rule her out of competing in the Women’s Royal Rumble match on the same night. That could still be her ticket to face Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania.
This will be very interesting.
At this point, the card for the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view is as follows:
- Brock Lesnar vs Braun Strowman – Universal Title Match
- Asuka vs Becky Lynch – SmackDown Women’s Title Match
- 30 Man Royal Rumble Match
- 30 Female Royal Rumble Match
