Two new members of the show’s women’s division will be wrestling on SmackDown for the first time on Tuesday night.
Asuka & Becky Lynch vs. The IIconics (Peyton Royce & Billie Kay) has been announced for next Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown. It will be the first time Asuka and Royce have wrestled on television since joining the brand.
Though she’s been appearing on the show since issuing her WrestleMania challenge to Charlotte Flair, Asuka officially arrived on SmackDown in the Superstar Shakeup. Royce and Kay debuted on the main roster after WrestleMania, laying out Charlotte before Carmella cashed in her Money in the Bank briefcase to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Kay lost to Charlotte this past Tuesday, with Asuka making the save for Charlotte and Lynch when they were being attacked by The IIconics and Carmella.
This is the first match that’s been announced for next week’s SmackDown, which will also feature fallout from the Superstar Shakeup and the final build to the Greatest Royal Rumble.
