The road to Crown Jewel’s SmackDown’s Women’s title match winds through Raw on Oct. 11, and could give us a preview of future red and blue brand championship feuds in the process.
Coming off a predictably combustible contract signing for their Triple Threat match on Oct. 21 in Saudi Arabia, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair will be in action on Monday night. The two challengers will team-up (and maybe give us a preview of the stable The EST recently fantasy booked?) to battle the champ... and Raw Women’s champion Charlotte Flair.
Banks & Belair have been at odds since before they faced off in a classic at WrestleMania 37. Lynch and Flair haven’t been on the same page since 2018’s SummerSlam. Lately, while The Queen wasn’t around on SmackDown last night, all four women spent the recent draft getting in each other’s faces. Monday’s tag match should be very interesting... and that’s before we mention that The Man and The Boss are also already booked for a singles match on next Friday’s SmackDown.
Here’s a look at everything that’s been announced for Monday’s show from San Francisco’s Chase Center:
- Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair vs. Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch
- Drew McIntyre and Big E face-to-face
- Doudrop vs. Natalya and Shayna Baszler vs. Dana Brooke in Queen’s Crown first round matches
- Kofi Kingston vs. Jinder Mahal and Xavier Woods vs. Ricochet in King of the Ring first round matches
Sound like a good show?
