SmackDown Women’s Title Announced For WrestleMania 33, Update on Naomi's Injury and Her WrestleMania Status

Tonight on SmackDown Live, it was announced that Alexa Bliss would defend her Women’s Title against “every woman available on the SmackDown roster.”

Although this means that SmackDown Superstars Becky Lynch, Carmella, Eva Marie, Maryse, Mickie James, Naomi, Natalya and Nikki Bella are all eligible to participate, it is a bit unclear who will actually partake in this multi-women Women’s Title match.

As of now, Naomi is still out on injury, Eva Marie has yet to make her television return, Nikki Bella and Maryse are involved in mixed-tag team action at WrestleMania thus leaving Becky Lynch, Carmella, Mickie James and Natalya as contenders to Alexa’s championship.



Already announced for WrestleMania 33 is a triple threat match between Bayley, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks for the Raw Women’s Title.

- Speaking of Naomi, she noted on Twitter today that her knee is still not 100% but she's hopeful for a WrestleMania 33 appearance in her hometown of Orlando. She wrote, "Yes doing a lot better but I'm still going to rehab weekly knee still isn't at 100 but I still have time to try & make mania I'm not giving up"
