WWE is holding the Royal Rumble event on January 26th. Since they only have one more episode of SmackDown until the big show they took care of booking two more matches this week.
Sheamus will face Shorty G at the Royal Rumble. The Celtic Warrior was giving Shorty G a hard time this week and the two escalated things from there.
Lacey Evans defeated Bayley in a non title match on SmackDown this week. That opened the door for a Royal Rumble match. Now The Lady Of WWE will face Bayley for the SmackDown Women’s Title.
As previously reported, The Fiend will defend the WWE Title against Daniel Bryan in a strap match.
