Seeing as it’s been a hot angle since Becky Lynch attacked her friend Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam shortly after Flair pinned Lynch in a Triple Threat to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship, some were surprised it took WWE until yesterday (Sept. 4) to officially book a singles match between the two at Hell in a Cell.
They didn’t want there to be any suspense about the rematch, though.
On their website, the company has added another Becky/Charlotte match to the card of Super Show-Down, their Network special/stadium show happening in Melbourne, Australia a little less than three weeks after the pay-per-view (PPV) from San Antonio on Sept. 16.
The feud for the blue brand’s women’s title joins the one for its top men’s belt as a double-dip on the two events. If The Bar defeats Rusev Day next week, SmackDown’s Tag Championship with join Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles and Flair vs. Lynch as prize fights with pre-booked rematches.
C’est la vie.
