Charlotte Flair will get another opportunity at the SmackDown Women’s Championship tonight on SmackDown LIVE when she challenges Natalya in her hometown of Charlotte, N.C.
In their last encounter for the title at WWE Hell in a Cell, The Queen had the champion on the ropes and looked to be on the verge of taking her first SmackDown Women’s Championship. However, a desperate Natalya grabbed a steel chair and used it to batter Charlotte’s knee in a jaw-dropping attack.
In the meantime, the champion has been focused on her impending Champion vs. Champion battle with Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series, while The Queen qualified for Team SmackDown in the Women’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Match. However, this match has the potential to change Survivor Series, as a Charlotte victory over Natalya would result in The Queen facing Bliss in Houston. The Raw Women’s Champion stated last night that she’ll be keeping a close eye on the match, and may even make her way up to Charlotte to see her Survivor Series opponent in person.

Sin Cara exacted a measure of retribution on Baron Corbin when he pummeled The Lone Wolf two weeks ago on SmackDown LIVE. Tonight, the masked man will get the chance to take Corbin’s United States Championship.
The rivalry between these two Superstars has been simmering in recent weeks. First, Sin Cara flustered The Lone Wolf with a series of scintillating dives that led to a count-out victory. One week later in a rematch, Corbin unleashed his rage on the masked man, got himself disqualified and planted his nemesis into the arena floor with End of Days. In another rematch on the Oct. 31 edition of SmackDown LIVE, the United States Champion sought to get under the skin of Sin Cara, trying to remove his rival’s sacred mask. For his troubles, Corbin caught a beating from Sin Cara that left him scurrying into the WWE Universe.
Now, they’ll collide with Corbin’s coveted United States Title on the line, as well as a spot in a Champion vs. Champion Match against Intercontinental Champion The Miz at Survivor Series. Who will walk out of SmackDown LIVE as champion? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!
