Tonight on SmackDown Live, the SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair looks for some payback against Riott Squad’s Liv Morgan.

Read‘s preview for tonight’s show below:

“Last Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE, The Riott Squad ganged up on SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, subjecting The Queen to a 3-on-1 beatdown that left her vulnerable to an attempted cash-in by Ms. Money in the Bank, Carmella.

Though The Princess of Staten Island didn’t succeed in cashing in and taking the title (though she still has the guaranteed title opportunity), while Flair is on the hunt for retribution on The Riott Squad. Her quest for payback begins tonight, when she faces Liv Morgan.”

After SmackDown, head over to Facebook to watch this week’s episode of Mixed Match Challenge which will feature the team of Goldust and Mandy Rose taking on the husband-wife team of Jimmy Uso and Naomi:

” Jimmy Uso & Naomi are both brilliant competitors with dynamic personalities and explosive in-ring styles. Jimmy is battled-tested as a tag team specialist, not only as one-half of the reigning SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but also as a five-time overall Tag Team Champion. Not to be outdone, Naomi is a two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion who just competed in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match. When you add in the natural chemistry of a loving married couple, you get a recipe for WWE Mixed Match Challenge success that may just leave tonight’s opponents feeling the glow.

On the other side of the squared circle, however, the bizarre has found Absolution. Following the announcement of Alicia Fox’s injury last week, Goldust selected Mandy Rose to be his WWE Mixed Match Challenge replacement partner. To say that The Bizarre One and his new teammate bring star power to the table is an understatement. He’s a larger-than-life, three-time Intercontinental Champion and three-time Tag Team Champion. She’s a WWE Tough Enough alumna, a former cast member of “Total Divas” and a current member of the ruthless faction Absolution, alongside Paige and Sonya Deville. Together, this tandem possesses the charisma and ability that can throw any team off their game.

Though not a couple, ‘RoseGold’ already seems like a natural fit, greatly reducing fears that they will be unable to contend with the chemistry of their married opponents. Goldust is particularly infatuated with his new partner, even going so far as to ask Mandy out on a date and dedicating his match to her this past weekend at a WWE Live Event.”
