The SmackDown Women’s Championship will officially be defended in a Triple Threat Match at the upcoming Crown Jewel event. SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch will take on both Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks.
Banks made her return after almost two months at Extreme Rules and caused a disqualification in the SmackDown Women’s Championship Match. She would go on to attack both Belair and Lynch. Banks will be at SmackDown tonight.
Banks was originally planned to face then-champion Belair at SummerSlam. The Boss was not present for that match which allowed Lynch to return to the ring and capture the championship from Belair.
Three of the best in the game will vie for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WWE Crown Jewel when Becky Lynch defends her title against both Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks in a Triple Threat Match.
The history between all three competitors is storied, to say the least, and it will all culminate in this blockbuster battle. Following their monumental WrestleMania main event match in April, The EST of WWE and The Boss were set to run it back at SummerSlam, but that all changed in the blink of an eye when The Man returned in Banks’ place and took the SmackDown Women’s Title from Belair in just 26 seconds.
During their one-on-one rematch at WWE Extreme Rules, Belair seemed to have Lynch on the ropes until Sasha made a shocking return of her own by leaving both competitors lying in the ring, not only resuming her war with Belair but echoing the viciousness of her rivalry with Lynch as well that culminated with a Hell in a Cell Match in 2019.
With The Boss and WWE’s EST hungrier than ever, The Man now finds herself in a situation where she does not have to be pinned or submitted to lose her title. So who will emerge as the SmackDown Women’s Champion?
Don’t miss WWE Crown Jewel on Thursday, Oct. 21, streaming live from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, at 12 PM ET/9 AM PT exclusively on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network everywhere else.
Along with this title match, it is rumored that the finals of the upcoming Queen’s Crown Tournament will take place at Crown Jewel. This tournament has not been officially announced by WWE at this time.
