Asuka vs. Becky Lynch for SmackDown Women’s Title set for WWE Royal Rumble

A major match has been confirmed by WWE on this week’s episode of Main Event.

During this week’s episode, announcer Scott Stamford talked about the upcoming SmackDown Women’s Championship match at the Royal Rumble between champion Asuka and challenger Becky Lynch.

It’s odd that this would be announced on Main Event so it is possible that the match was supposed to be announced this week on SmackDown Live but plans changed and they were not able or forgot to edit the show in time.

This match will cause people to wonder what the WrestleMania plans are for Lynch.  Does Lynch win the title and move on to her next opponent on the blue brand? Or does she lose and then enter herself in the women’s Royal Rumble? It would make sense if she won and then moved on to WrestleMania to face Ronda Rousey.

On a related note, there’s a big match for the Raw side at the Royal Rumble. It has not been announced so it’s a spoiler but you can click here if you want to know.

Here is a clip of the match announcement:
