WWE has revealed two additional matches on the Christmas Day edition of Friday Night SmackDown on Fox.

The holiday episode was taped earlier this week and will follow Fox’s NFL coverage of the New Orleans Saints vs. Minnesota Vikings game that should provide a sizable lead-in for SmackDown.

It was previously noted that Asuka & Charlotte Flair would defend the WWE women’s tag titles on the show but the opponents were not mentioned. On Thursday, WWE released the information that it will be a triple threat elimination match with Asuka & Flair defending the titles against Carmella & Bayley, and Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair.

They have also added a match between Daniel Bryan and Jey Uso.

Here is the updated line-up for SmackDown airing at 8 pm Eastern Friday on Fox:
*Universal Championship Steel Cage Match: Roman Reigns (champion) vs. Kevin Owens
*Intercontinental title Lumberjack Match: Sami Zayn (champion) vs. Big E.
*WWE Women’s Tag Titles Triple Threat: Asuka & Charlotte Flair (champions) vs. Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair vs. Bayley & Carmella
*Jey Uso vs. Daniel Bryan

If they have time, that could steal the show if not the week for me, even though these teams barely make sense.
