Announced Prior to this weeks episode of Smackdown, Becky Lynch and longtime in ring veteran, the recently returned and newly villainous Mickie James, will square off this Sunday at the Smackdown Brands first pay per view of the year, Elimination Chamber.
The Match comes weeks after Mickie made a shocking return to WWE in aid of Smackdown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss, attacking Lynch in the closure of her women’s championship rematch with the Professed “Wicked Witch” of the WWE. While keeping their alliance intact to work against Lynch, James has also directly targeted Lynch alone, taking aim at the Irish Lasskicker and former champion over taking credit over the evolution of women’s wrestling within WWE in an attempt to erase the accolades Mickie accomplished years prior. Along with this, shes declared her own reinvention, while promising the destruction of Becky Lynch, and in order to resume her momentum and take back the title Mickie had stopped her from regaining, Lynch must go up against the scathing established competitor this coming Sunday when Smackdown hosts the Elimination Chamber Pay Per View. The Match also marks as Mickie’s first singles match on PPV since returning to the Smackdown Brand.
