Last week on Smackdown Live! the match between Becky Lynch and Peyton Royce was supposed to take place. Instead the match was Lynch vs Sonya Deville. This week’s preview shows the Lynch and Royce match is back on. Is Lynch able to continue her winning streak and take out the other half of the IIconics?

Also last week, James Ellsworth attempted to call out Asuka to initiate a fight knowing that she was in Japan with her family. General Manager Paige came out to the ring to inform Ellsworth that he will be having a match with Asuka the following week. Tonight on Smackdown Asuka is back and will be facing Ellsworth one on one. Paige also announced that Carmella will defend her title against Asuka at Extreme Rules later on in the month.

Check out WWE’s full preview for the match ups tonight:

Becky Lynch will be looking to go 2-for-2 against The IIconics tonight when she faces Peyton Royce. Though she came up just short in the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, The Irish Lass Kicker bounced back with a win over Billie Kay two weeks ago, forcing her to tap out to the excruciating Dis-arm-her.

Can Royce avoid the same fate, or will Lynch continue to push her way back into the SmackDown Women’s Title picture?

James Ellsworth may have dug himself a hole he can’t get out. Tonight on SmackDown, Ellsworth will go one-on-one with Asuka.

Ellsworth returned at WWE Money in the Bank to help Carmella retain her SmackDown Women’s Title against The Empress of Tomorrow, and he hasn’t let anyone forget it since. Last week, he took to the ring to call out Asuka. Unfortunately, she was with her family in Japan, but SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige was happy to oblige Ellsworth and make the match for this week.

Is Ellsworth ready for Asuka?
