IC Title Match, Beat The Clock Challenge Announced For 4/29 WWE SmackDown

Plus a former NXT star debuts

Four matches are set for next Friday night's SmackDown, three of which have opponents yet to be announced.

A special "I Quit" Beat the Clock challenge has been set up between SmackDown Women's champion Charlotte Flair and her WrestleMania Backlash opponent Ronda Rousey. Each woman will face a different opponent, and see how fast they can each win via submission.

Neither Flair nor Rousey's opponent has been named for the challenge yet.

Intercontinental champion Ricochet will also be in action, defending his title against Shanky. The match was set up during a backstage segment on Friday's broadcast.

Also set for next week's SmackDown is the in-ring debut of former NXT Women's champion Raquel Rodriguez. Rodriguez made her first appearance on SmackDown two weeks ago, but she has yet to wrestle on the show. Her opponent has not been named yet.

The card for next week's WWE SmackDown, being taped tonight in Albany, NY (due to WWE embarking on an upcoming UK tour) is as follows:

* "I Quit" Beat the Clock challenge: Charlotte Flair vs. TBA

* "I Quit" Beat the Clock challenge: Ronda Rousey vs. TBA

* WWE Intercontinental: Ricochet (c) vs. Shanky
