The plans for the SmackDown women’s title remain in motion with Bayley vs. Lacey Evans penciled in for Royal Rumble next month.
The title bout was originally scheduled for WWE TLC this month but when it was removed, WWE wanted to do it on the next PPV card. Vince McMahon is not believed to have made up his mind 100% on the match taking place at Rumble in January.
As for Dana Brooke, she’s currently considered an enhancement talent in WWE. She may get a win every now and then due to WWE’s 50/50 booking but she’s not a talent being pushed. Lacey Evans is the talent the company is behind and will get the next legitimate title shot against Bayley.
