Report: Changes To SmackDown Women's Championship Match At WWE WrestleMania 36 Revealed
Who Will The Former Huggable One Face...
WrestleMania 36 is less than one month away and will be broadcast live from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The Showcase Of The Immortals is set to be headlined by Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship and Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship.
While the match had not been announced, SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley was scheduled to defend her title against Naomi on the Grandest Stage Of Them All. WWE has seemingly changed their minds, however, as Alex McCarthy at talkSPORT revealed on Twitter that the former Huggable One will now put her title on the line in a Six-Pack Challenge. All of the participants in the match have yet to be revealed, but McCarthy noted Bayley will take on Sasha Banks, Naomi, Carmella, Lacey Evans, and one other Superstar.
Fans have been clamouring for Bayley to face her best friend Sasha Banks at Mania, and McCarthy reported this was the original plan, but The Boss's injury forced the company to initially turn to Naomi, and now to a Six-Pack Challenge.
McCarthy wrote: "A source tells me the plan for the SD women’s title at WM36 is a six-pack challenge right now. Bayley v Sasha v Naomi v Lacey Evans v Carmella - that’s five of the six names."
