On top of the Raw Women’s Championship match between Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax, the SmackDown Women’s Championship will also be on the line at Extreme Rules as Carmella defends the title against Asuka.

SmackDown General Manager Paige made on tonight’s SmackDown Live (June 26th) during an in-ring segment with James Ellsworth.

During the segment, Ellsworth called out Asuka following their encounter from last week. This brought out Paige, who informed the WWE Universe that Asuka was in Japan visiting her family. She then said that Ellsworth interference at Money in the Bank warrants Asuka a rematch and books the SmackDown Women’s Title match at Extreme Rules.

Paige also went on to book a match between Asuka and Ellsworth for next week’s SmackDown Live after Ellsworth tries to seal a “date” with Paige.

WWE’s Extreme Rules airs Sunday, July 15th at 7 PM ET on the WWE Network.
