During this week’s edition of WWE’s SmackDown Live, a new headline event was confirmed for the Fastlane event. In what will be the last big Smackdown exclusive show before WrestleMania. Charlotte Flair will defend her SmackDown women’s championship against Ruby Riott.
As announced last week, the Riott Squad circle (Riott, Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan) faced the champion, Becky Lynch and Naomi, leaving the led by Riott as the winners. This was the straw that broke the glass for Flair who after weeks of facing Riott and his allies launched the challenge to defend his title in Fastlane.
This will be the second occasion that both face each other. Similarly, Flair will defend his title again after December 2017 where he defended her title in the Clash of Champions event against Natalya. Fastlane will be held on March 11, 2018, and will be broadcast in Pay Per View (PPV) format and through the WWE Network.
