Smackdown Discussion Post: July 10th, 2018

Last week Asuka faced James Ellsworth. The match was more of a chase, as they both were counted out when Ellsworth ran away from the ring with Asuka following.

General Manager Paige let Ellsworth know after the match that next week he will face Asuka in a lumberjack match. All the women from the Smackdown brand will be ringside to make sure Ellsworth isn’t running away this time. Ellsworth has been making a lot of sexist remarks about women and Paige wasn’t about to let him get away with it any longer.

The official WWE preview can be seen here:

“Last Tuesday, Asuka and James Ellsworth competed in a battle of the sexes that ended in dubious fashion after Ellsworth led Asuka on a wild goose chase, culminating in a double count-out and The Empress of Tomorrow getting blindsided by Carmella.

SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige sought to give the WWE Universe a decisive end to the match, so she immediately scheduled a rematch for tonight. This time, there will be nowhere for Ellsworth to run, as the SmackDown Women’s division will be surrounding the ring for a Lumberjack Match.

Ellsworth is oozing confidence ahead of this battle, looking past The Empress of Tomorrow and challenging other famous female sports icons, including tennis star Serena Williams, auto racing’s Danica Patrick and the WNBA’s Diana Taurasi”:
