As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown, Lacey Evans faced WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley in a non-title match. Sasha Banks was originally supposed to face Evans but she got taken out during a backstage brawl between herself, Evans and Bayley.
Hence, the SmackDown Women’s Champion herself ended up going one-on-one against Evans. The two women put up a good match before the Lady gave the Champion a taste of her “Women’s Right” for the three-count.
Later on, it was announced that since Evans secured a pinfall victory over the champion, she will now face Bayley for the title at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
