Taking to Twitter after last night’s episode of SmackDown, WWE announced that Sasha Banks will defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship at the Royal Rumble this weekend against Carmella.
Sasha Banks and Carmella actually went one-on-one at TLC last month, and while Sasha Banks may have walked out with the win, fans were very impressed with the performance that Carmella put in during the title match.
