Exclusive: WWE To Announce Massive Summerslam Title Match On Smackdown
WWE hinted the first championship match from Smackdown Live for Summerslam pay-per-view on last week’s edition of the show. The women’s champion from the blue brand picked up a win against Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville teaming up with Ember Moon. The champion then handpicked Moon to be the challenger for her title at Summerslam.
WWE.com seemingly confirmed the match in a subsequent announcement. But it looks like the Summerslam title match lineup will witness a significant change in the upcoming edition of Smackdown Live. We now have an official matchup on this week’s edition that will feature Charlotte Flair going up against Ember Moon for the first time ever. Check out WWE’s press release for this matchup,
“Ember Moon received the biggest opportunity of her WWE career thus far last week when SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley challenged her to a title match at SummerSlam. However, The Shenom will have no time to rest on her laurels, as she now has to prepare to challenge The Queen.”
We have now learned the potential reason behind WWE scheduling this matchup on Smackdown Live. The creative team wants to insert Charlotte Flair to the Summerslam match card. She was absent from WWE TV for the past few weeks only to return two nights after Extreme Rules, for the very same reason. So she is likely to defeat Moon on Smackdown and claim her place in the upcoming title match on August 11th PPV.

It means the championship may convert into a triple threat where Bayley defends against both Charlotte and Moon at Summerslam. Or else, it will simply be a one-on-one matchup between The Queen and The Hugger. It will automatically garner some natural heat on Flair since she will steal another title shot from an emerging superstar. But this, in turn, may mark the push for Ember Moon on Smackdown roster since the crowd will back her up for future opportunities.
This upcoming episode of Smackdown takes place at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida. This is the first time that Charlotte Flair will go up against Ember Moon on a televised episode. Prior to this, these two have met a few times on recent WWE live events where the nine-time women’s champion defeated The Shenom, twice. They were also part of the 2019 Royal Rumble and the 2018 Money in the Bank matches, too.
