Naomi gets Smackdown Women’s title shot at Super ShowDown

The recently returned Naomi will get a shot at the Smackdown Women’s title this coming week after she overcame Carmella in a one-on-one match on Smackdown last night.

Bayley vs Naomi will now take place at Super ShowDown on Thursday, February 27 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This becomes the second match featuring the women in the country and the first women’s title defense.

After four attempts, WWE managed to convince the Kingdom to allow their women to work on the show and Natalya and Lacey Evans made history at Crown Jewel late last year by becoming the first two females to enter a WWE ring in Saudi. Lana was also part of the show and accompanied Bobby Lashley to the top of the ramp before returning backstage. Renee Young had been allowed to do ringside commentary on the second show.

WWE signed a 10-year deal with Saudi Arabia and will be holding two shows per year moving forward.
