This will be their first televised title defense since the Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection won the titles to become the inaugural champions back at Elimination Chamber earlier this month. WWE made the announcement during Bayley’s match against Nia. The Hugger went on to pick up the win and early bragging rights.
It was easy to guess Nia and Tamina would be their first challengers after they came out to interrupt the champions last week before Banks and Bayley ran them off. Now, the match is official.
In other WWE women’s division news, recent developments between Ronda Rousey and The McMahons suggest it’s unlikely we will see her defend the Raw Women’s Championship at Fastlane. Tonight, Rousey left the title in the ring with Stephanie McMahon following an altercation with Becky Lynch.
It’s unclear where WWE is going with that angle. Regardless, that still leaves us with the possibility for at least two women’s championship matches on the card, assuming that Asuka defends the SmackDown Women’s Championship at Fastlane. Her challenger has yet to be announced.
Check back with Diva Dirt for more news on the card for Fastlane.
