-Samoa Joe vs. Rey Mysterio for the U.S. Championship
-Asuka vs. TBD for the Smackdown Women’s Championship.

Powell’s POV: WWE officially announced the U.S. Title match and Nese earned the WWE Cruiserweight Title shot on Tuesday. Alexa Bliss has been named the host of the event, and Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che are “special correspondents”. All signs point toward Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre, and Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship being added to the lineup, but those matches are not official.
WWE has also announced Mandy Rose vs. Sonya Deville vs. Naomi vs. Carmella in a four-way for Tuesday’s Smackdown with the winner advancing to challenge Asuka at WrestleMania.
