WWE has confirmed a segment for tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live. It will be the blue brand’s first show since this past weekend’s Tables Ladders and Chairs (TLC) pay-per-view (PPV). At the event, Asuka captured the SDL Women’s Title from Becky Lynch. “The Empress Of Tomorrow” won the first-ever Women’s TLC match against Lynch and Charlotte Flair.
Their bout main evented the PPV. Towards the end of the match, RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey came out to the ring and tipped over a ladder holding Lynch and Flair. This was likely in retaliation for Flair beating down Rousey after their match at Survivor Series. Rousey has also been bickering with Lynch on social media for the past several weeks. The interference allowed Asuka to climb the ladder and retrieve the SDL Women’s Title.
Now, Asuka will have a “coronation” segment on tonight’s episode of SDL to celebrate her victory. WWE made the announcement official on their Twitter page earlier this morning:

It’s likely that Flair and Lynch also address Rousey’s interference in their match over the weekend as well. A match involving the three has been rumored for quite some time now, and could happen as soon as WrestleMania 35 in New Jersey.
What did you think of Asuka’s SDL Women’s Title win over the weekend?
