WWE has officially confirmed that at SummerSlam, it will be Bayley vs. Ember Moon for the SmackDown Women’s Championship:
Week in and week out, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley has established herself as a truly inspirational titleholder, most recently with a successful title defense in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match against Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross at WWE Extreme Rules. Up next, she will look to stop an absolute force of nature when she battles Ember Moon at SummerSlam. Could a championship Eclipse be on the horizon?
After Moon was challenged by Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville to find a partner to face the outspoken duo in a tag team contest on SmackDown LIVE, Bayley answered the call and helped The Shenom secure the victory in convincing fashion.
As the smoke cleared on the hard-hitting tag team bout, Kayla Braxton asked Bayley who her next challenger might be in the wake of her pay-per-view triumph. Responding to the calls of the WWE Universe, the gusty titleholder wasted little time offering The War Goddess an opportunity, which Moon accepted with a joyous “Hell yeah!”
Don’t miss what is sure to be a classic showdown at The Biggest Event of the Summer, Sunday, Aug. 11, streaming live at 7 ET/4 PT on WWE Network.
This match was first brought up last night on Smackdown by Bayley herself.
Ember Moon took to Twitter to react to the match announcement:
A moment of happiness…
I never thought it would happen
A CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH AT
