A big Triple Brand Battle Royal has been announced for next Friday’s SmackDown on FOX episode to determine who will challenge WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Bayley for her SmackDown Women’s Title at SummerSlam. WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon appeared via video on SmackDown to confront Bayley and her partner, RAW Women’s Champion Sasha Banks.
Stephanie talked about Banks defending at SummerSlam, noting that her opponent may be Asuka if Asuka can win the non-title qualifier match over Bayley on Monday’s RAW.
Stephanie then announced that there will be a Triple Brand Battle Royal next Friday night, featuring some of the enemies that The Golden Role Models have made in recent months on the WWE NXT, RAW and SmackDown brands. The winner will go on to face Bayley at Summerslam.
WWE has not announced any of the Superstars who will be in the Triple Brand Battle Royal, or how many entrants there will be.
