WWE has officially announced that Asuka will defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Mandy Rose at WWE Fastlane.
On last week’s episode of SmackDown Live, Rose scored a pinfall over Asuka in a one-on-one match after Rose faked an eye injury.
Rose vs. Asuka was announced in a post-SmackDown video (see below).
Here is the updated card for WWE Fastlane:
Daniel Bryan (Champion) vs. Kevin Owens
SmackDown Women’s Championship
Asuka (Champion) vs. Mandy Rose
WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship
The Usos (Champions) vs. The Miz and Shane McMahon
WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship
Sasha Banks and Bayley (Champions) vs. Nia Jax and Tamina
Also, based on their backstage interaction, it looks like they will add AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton to the card.
WWE Fastlane will happen on Sunday, March 10 from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
