WWE has announced that the WWE Women’s Championship will be defended in a Triple Threat at SummerSlam on Aug. 5.
The champion, Asuka, will defend against both Charlotte Flair and Bianca Belair. Since Asuka defeated Belair at Night of Champions in May and since being the first woman to hold the new belt, Belair and Flair have been on the hunt to get the gold. Both challengers have had recent title matches that have ended in disqualification thanks to each other.
Earlier today, WWE confirmed that this announcement would take place tonight on SmackDown. Apparently plans have changed and they announced it early. Flair will now take on IYO SKY in singles action.
So far this is the first official women’s match set for SummerSlam. Ronda Rousey did challenge Shayna Baszler but we do not have the match confirmed at this time.
