Last week on Smackdown, multi-time Women’s Champion Trish Stratus accepted a challenge from Charlotte Flair for a match in the former’s home town of Toronto, Canada at SummerSlam.
To build to their first-time-ever match-up, it was reported earlier today that the WWE Hall of Famer would be appearing on Tuesday’s go-home Smackdown Live show.
WWE has since confirmed that not only will Trish Stratus be appearing on TV this week, but she will be competing in a match on Raw.
Mere hours before Raw goes on air, WWE took to Twitter to reveal that Trish Stratus will be teaming with fellow Canadian Natalya to take on Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and “The Man’s” long-time rival Charlotte Flair.

The match will also be used to build towards Becky Lynch’s Raw Women’s Championship match with Natalya at SummerSlam.
This comes after WWE confirmed after teases were made last week that Lynch and Natalya’s championship bout on Sunday night will now be a Submission Match.
