WWE has confirmed a segment for tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live. The company’s official Twitter account has announced that a “coronation” segment for the new SmackDown Live Women’s Champion, Asuka, will be taking place:

Asuka made history over the weekend when she won the first-ever Women’s Tables Ladders and Chairs (TLC) pay-per-view (PPV). “The Empress Of Tomorrow” defeated Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair in the main event of the TLC PPV. She received a big assist from RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey.
Rousey came out during the match and pushed Lynch and Flair off the top of a ladder. Asuka was the last woman standing and was able to climb the ladder and retrieve the title. Now, Rousey, Flair, and Lynch will likely rekindle their rivalry as we’re now on the Road To WrestleMania.
