WWE officially announces championship rematch for Smackdown Live YouTube/WWE

The SmackDown Women’s Championship will be on the line during Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live.

WWE announcer Kayla Braxton announced via Twitter that former champion Natalya will get her rematch against current champion Charlotte Flair during the show’s post-Survivor Series broadcast at the Toyota Center in Houston.

Flair defeated Natalya last week to not only win the title, but earn her way into a “champion vs. champion” match against RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series, which she won via the “Figure-Eight” submission.

Natalya replaced Flair as the fifth member of the SmackDown women’s team and was the last surviving member before submitting to Asuka in the elimination match.

The two competitors have shared memorable matches in the past, including at NXT TakeOver in May 2014, which resulted in Flair winning the NXT Women’s Championship, her first of numerous titles in WWE, as well as a Divas Championship feud in early 2016.
