We previously reported here on eWrestlingNews.com that WWE appeared to announce a match between Asuka and Becky Lynch for the SmackDown! Live Women’s Championship at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. The announcement was made on WWE Main Event. WWE later backtracked on the announcement, with Paige tweeting that she tried to make “one last match as the General Manager of SmackDown! Live” that wasn’t officially announced for the pay-per-view yet.
Becky Lynch responded to Paige’s announcement, tweeting the following:
