On Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin battling for a spot in the WWE Championship match at Fastlane:

Tonight, Dolph Ziggler returns to SmackDown LIVE for the first time in seven weeks. By the end of the night, The Showoff could be walking right into a WWE Championship opportunity.

SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon revealed on Twitter Thursday morning that the winner of the battle between Ziggler and Baron Corbin will be added to the WWE Championship Match at WWE Fastlane. That means that AJ Styles will have to defend his title against Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and the winner of this showdown.

Who will advance to the March 11 special on WWE Network and challenge for the WWE Championship: The Showoff or The Lone Wolf? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!

On Charlotte Flair taking on Sarah Logan:

Last week on SmackDown LIVE, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair defeated The Riott Squad’s Liv Morgan, then made a bold claim: “One down, two to go.” The Queen’s quest for payback continues this week when she faces Sarah Logan.

Charlotte had to face 3-on-1 odds against Morgan last week, until Ruby Riott and Logan were thrown out by the official, which gave The Queen the opening to defeat the feisty New Jersey native. However, the SmackDown Women’s Champion is once again walking into a battle where she’ll be at a distinct disadvantage, as The Riott Squad still have the numbers in their favor. Will Charlotte once again score a victory over a member of the vicious trio?
