WWE Smackdown Live preview and schedule: January 8, 2019
#1 contender match for Women’s Title at Royal Rumble
Last week, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Carmella all approached Triple H to state their case as to why they should be next in line to challenge Smackdown Women’s Champion Asuka at Royal Rumble. So, the Game booked the three in a Triple Threat Match, with the winner moving on to face The Empress of Tomorrow in Phoenix.

Charlotte and Smackdown 1/8/19 Becky both feel that they should be Smackdown Women’s Champion at this present moment and only are not because of Ronda Rousey’s interference in their match against Asuka at WWE TLC.

Meanwhile, Carmella, who reigned as Champion for a staggering 130 days in 2018, has multiple victories over Flair, Lynch and Asuka, and believes that puts her right in line for another title opportunity.
