During tonight’s episode of WWE Raw, the first women’s match of this year’s Survivor Series has been announced.

The champions have emerged, and all eyes are now set on Survivor Series. WWE has decided to take the women’s revolution to one of the big four pay-per-views after the two women’s champions gave the fight of their lives at WWE Evolution.

Becky Lynch faced Charlotte Flair in another stop in their intense feud, delivering what might very well be the match of the year in a Last Woman Standing match that lasted over 28 minutes.

Ronda Rousey proved she is still on top of the Raw Women’s Division, after beating Nikki Bella in a main event title match that resulted in an all-out brawl, even involving several of the Four Horsewomen of MMA.

Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey will face the SmackDown Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch, at the event in a one-on-one, champion vs. champion match.

The match was teased, last night at Evolution, after a WWE Exclusive aired with the two champions awkwardly sizing each other up. This will be the first time that Rousey faces Lynch in a televised match since Rousey came to WWE.

The announcement means there will likely not be a women’s title match for either brand at the pay-per-view, pushing Nia Jax’s challenge for the Raw Women’s Championship for after Survivor Series. Becky Lynch will likely continue her feud with Charlotte Flair after the pay-per-view.

For the first time in the pay-per-view’s history, Survivor Series will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, on Sunday, Nov. 18. Tune into the WWE Network and see if Red or Blue is the best brand in WWE.
