Backstage News On Why Scarlett Was Removed From WWE SmackDown Dark Match



As we reported on Saturday here on eWn, a dark match following Friday night’s episode of WWE SmackDown was scheduled to feature Scarlett. This would have only marked her third match in WWE, but the bout was changed at the very last minute.

WWE’s original plan for the match was for Matt Riddle, Braun Strowman, and Liv Morgan to face off against Damian Priest, Karrion Kross, and Scarlett. Instead, the match was changed to Legado del Fantasma and Damian Priest vs. Madcap Moss, Strowman, Riddle and Morgan.

According to sources, the creative plans for Kross and Scarlett were set well before Friday’s SmackDown TV tapings and she was never told about a match. The word backstage is that there was an internal error or the match was pitched and shot down before Friday. Whatever the case may be – Scarlett didn’t know about the match in advance.

Scarlett previously worked a dark match for WWE last year, and another squash match on NXT several years ago.
