After defeating Carmella and Becky Lynch in a Triple Threat Match to capture the SmackDown Women’s Championship at SummerSlam, Charlotte will make her first defense against former titleholder Carmella tonight on SmackDown LIVE.

The Queen returned several weeks ago, stopping The Princess of Staten Island from attacking Becky Lynch, who had earned a title opportunity by defeating Carmella. Afterward, Flair was given the opportunity to be added into the SummerSlam title showdown, and she took advantage by defeating Princess Mella.

At The Biggest Event of The Summer, Flair pinned Lynch to win the championship, sending The Irish Lass Kicker into a rage that saw her viciously attack The Queen and end their friendship. Two nights later on the blue brand, Charlotte and Becky once again threw fists in a wild melee and had to be pulled apart by nearly every woman on SmackDown LIVE. After the brawl, Carmella approached SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige about getting her rematch, and her request was granted.

Will Charlotte Flair put the implosion of her closest friendship aside, or will Carmella take advantage and reclaim her title? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
