Bayley vs. Charlotte Flair set for WWE Clash of Champions
WWE has confirmed the SmackDown Women’s Championship match for Clash of Champions.
Bayley will defend her title against Charlotte Flair at the pay-per-view. It’s taking place at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 15.
Charlotte challenged Bayley for Clash of Champions during a Moment of Bliss segment on this week’s SmackDown. Charlotte claimed to be the face of the SmackDown women’s division and called Bayley an afterthought. Bayley responded by saying that being champion means she’s better than Charlotte.
After accepting Charlotte’s challenge, Bayley pushed Charlotte off of her chair.
Bayley retained her title against Ember Moon at SummerSlam, while Charlotte defeated Trish Stratus.
In May, Bayley won the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match and cashed in on Charlotte later that night to become SmackDown Women’s Champion. That came right after Charlotte had won the title from Becky Lynch.
The finals of WWE’s King of the Ring tournament are also being held at Clash of Champions.
