Tonight on the Backlash go home show of SmackDown, a contract signing between between Naomi, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and “The Welcoming Committee” (Natalya, Carmella and Tamina) will take place.

Read WWE.com’s preview to tonight’s show below:

Tensions have been escalating in the SmackDown LIVE Women’s Division since the arrival of Charlotte Flair, who immediately established herself as the top contender to SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi. Angered by The Queen seemingly jumping them in line, the “welcoming committee” of Natalya, Carmella & Tamina joined forces to make Charlotte’s life, along with anyone who sided with her, a living hell.

The Queen has found allies in Naomi and Becky Lynch, though their partnership got off to a rocky start last week when Charlotte and the champion caused a distraction that cost The Irish Lass Kicker her match against Natalya.

In the aftermath of the chaos, Shane McMahon put the two trios against each other at WWE Backlash in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match. Before this Sunday, however, all six Superstars will be in the ring on SmackDown LIVE to make the match official during the first-ever contract signing of its kind. Will they be able to put their names on the dotted line without coming to blows?

Tune in to SmackDown tonight at 8pm ET on USA Network.
