Despite an episode of WWE Main Event advertising otherwise, Asuka vs. Becky Lynch for the Smackdown Women’s Championship is not taking place at the Royal Rumble.
Former Smackdown Live General Manager Paige took to Twitter on Friday to explain why the match is now off and not taking place in a few weeks.
Soooo I tried to make one last match before my time as #SDLive GM came to end…but unfortunately @BeckyLynchWWE vs. @WWEAsuka for the Smackdown Women’s Championship is NOT official for #RoyalRumble. #Oops
