WWE has confirmed that Bayley will be defending her WWE Smackdown women’s championship at SummerSlam against Ember Moon. Bayley noted on Smackdown last night that she would like to face Moon after the two of them defeated Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville in tag-team action. WWE has since confirmed the match will take place at SummerSlam in Toronto.
Moon challenging Bayley for the title is the 3rd confirmed match for SummerSlam. Becky Lynch is scheduled to defend the RAW women’s title against Natalya and Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins is also scheduled for the Universal championship.

Up next, she will look to stop an absolute force of nature when she battles Ember Moon at SummerSlam. Could a championship Eclipse be on the horizon?” a WWE press release for the match asks.
