Tonight's WWE SmackDown on FOX saw SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley reveal that she will be defending her title at Saudi Arabia. She made the announcement after retaining over Carmella. The post-match angle saw Carmella and Naomi double-team the champion. It was later announced that next Friday's SmackDown episode from Phoenix will feature Naomi vs. Carmella in singles action.
