SmackDown Live was an awesome show this week where we witnessed some impressive matches. Despite having a good show, we didn't see a women's bout this week, however, Alexa Bliss hosted 'A Moment of Bliss' with her tag team partner Nikki Cross.

Charlotte Flair was the special guest of the show as The Queen was bragging about her memorable victory against the WWE Hall Famer Trish Stratus at the Biggest Party of the Summer. The current SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley interrupted Charlotte. The Hugger and The Queen had a heated confrontation as they were taking shots at each other.

Charlotte challenged Bayley to put the SmackDown Women's Championship on the line at Clash of Champions. Being a fighting champion, Bayley accepted the challenge, and now the two women are set to cross paths at Clash of Champions next month.

Charlotte already won the most coveted women's prize of the Blue Brand twice this year and she will be getting another opportunity. It will be interesting to see if she manages to become a ten-time Women's Champion at Clash of Champions.

Here we discuss three reasons why Charlotte Flair is challenging Bayley. 

#3 SmackDown Live doesn't have a credible challenger for Bayley

Bayley, who was part of RAW since her main roster debut, switched brands at Superstar Shake-Up this year. Her fortune altered on the Blue Brand as she won the Women's Money in the Bank and grabbed the SmackDown Women's Title on the same night. Since winning the belt, it has been a sumptuous title reign for The Hugger.

SmackDown Live might have a talented roster, it doesn't have a legitimate challenger for Bayley. Ember Moon, who was the last title challenger for Bayley, didn't pose a serious threat to the champion at SummerSlam. Prior to Moon, Alexa Bliss was chasing the SmackDown Women's Champion but The Goddess is part of the RAW roster. Bliss fought Bayley at Stomping Grounds and Extreme Rules but the latter defended the belt successfully.

Judging by the scenario, Charlotte Flair seems like the only prominent name to challenge the champion. Though Bayley is the holder of SmackDown Women's Title, there is no denying that Charlotte is the biggest name of the SmackDown Women's roster.
