Historic championship match announced for the upcoming WWE PPV

SmackDown Live General Manager Paige announced that WWE SmackDown women's champion Becky Lynch will defend her title against her former best friend Charlotte Flair at WWE's first-ever all-women's PPV, Evolution which will be held in New York on October 28. Paige also announced that this match will be the first-ever last woman standing match.

The ongoing rivalry between Charlotte and Becky is easily one of the best feuds going on in WWE at the moment. It all began with the Irish Lass Kicker turning on her best friend Charlotte after she won the title by beating Becky and Carmella in a triple-threat match at WWE SummerSlam.

With the heel turn, Becky became a fan favourite in no time and in the following weeks, her fan base increased, thanks to the build-up, and she got cheered more than ever in spite of being a heel in the storyline. Charlotte defended her title and dropped it to Becky at WWE Hell In A Cell.

Charlotte activated her rematch clause at the WWE Super Show-Down PPV that took place at the MCG in Melbourne last weekend and the match ended in a disqualification with Charlotte winning the match and Becky retaining the title as the women's championship can't change hands via DQ.

A rematch was made official for this week's SmackDown and this time, there was an “if Lynch is disqualified, she loses the title' stipulation for the match. Opening the show, Becky and Charlotte put on a decent match.

The action suddenly moved out of the ring and with both women ensuring that the other one's body is completely broken, they went on a brawl outside the ring resulting in the referee counting 10 and the match ended in double time-out. With this result, the champion retained the title and Charlotte continued her assault on Becky as she speared her through the LED board at the top of the entrance ramp and thereby suffering a vicious cut along her arm.

Following this, Paige announced that both these women will go one-on-one in a last woman standing match where there won't be any DQ or timeout rules. In short, there will be a winner for the match at Evolution.
