Smackdown and 205 Live will take place from the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida this week. WWE announced 3 segments for this week’s show, including Ember Moon going one-on-one with Charlotte Flair.
Moon was recently announced as Bayley’s opponent at SummerSlam for the Smackdown women’s championship. Flair could potentially insert herself into the title picture with a win on Tuesday night, however.
Shane McMahon is scheduled to address Kevin Owens’ actions for last week as well on Tuesday night. McMahon held a Town Hall meeting to kick-off Smackdown last week. Also announced for Tuesday’s Smackdown is Kofi Kingston issuing an open challenge for SummerSlam.
Ember Moon vs Charlotte Flair
“Ember Moon received the biggest opportunity of her WWE career thus far last when SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley challenged her to a title match at SummerSlam. However, The will have no time to rest on her laurels, as she now has to prepare to challenge The Queen,” a WWE press release for the match reads.
Flair and Moon have never faced each other on WWE programming aside from both being in the 2019 Royal Rumble and the 2018 Money in the Bank matches. They have met a few times on recent WWE live events, however. Flair defeated Moon twice in a row on June 1st and 2nd last month during a WWE tour of Texas. Moon then won a triple threat against Flair and Liv Morgan on a WWE house show from Glenn Falls, New York on July 8th.
Also booked for Tuesday on 205 Live will be Isaiah “Swerve” Scott making his 205 Live debut against Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak in a non-title match.
