General Manager Paige kicked off this week’s episode of SmackDown Live and she introduced “The Man” Becky Lynch so she could talk about the events from the past few weeks.
Lynch told General Manager Paige that she was tired of sitting on the sidelines. Then she called Charlotte Flair out to the ring. Since Survivor Series, Flair has seemingly been channeling Lynch on WWE TV and on social media and Lynch called her out for that. Flair called herself more capable of handling Ronda Rousey because she is “genetically superior.” Lynch referred to Flair as “bootleg Becky” and said that she’s glad that the phoniness was beaten out of her during the last few months.
Flair fired back and said that Lynch has been riding her coattails. Flair also promised that she would be at TLC to see Ronda Rousey.
GM Paige announced that Lynch will defend the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Flair at the TLC pay-per-view and it would be a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match.
Paige announced that the winner of a battle royal later in the show would be added to the match at TLC.
UPDATE: Asuka won the battle royal so she will be part of the triple threat match at TLC.
