Asuka and James Ellsworth square off in a Lumberjack Match
Last Tuesday, Asuka and James Ellsworth competed in a battle of the sexes that ended in dubious fashion after Ellsworth led Asuka on a wild goose chase, culminating in a double count-out and The Empress of Tomorrow getting blindsided by Carmella.
SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige sought to give the WWE Universe a decisive end to the match, so she immediately scheduled a rematch for tonight. This time, there will be nowhere for Ellsworth to run, as the SmackDown Women’s division will be surrounding the ring for a Lumberjack Match. Ellsworth is oozing confidence ahead of this battle, looking past The Empress of Tomorrow and challenging other famous female sports icons, including tennis star Serena Williams, auto racing's Danica Patrick and the WNBA's Diana Taurasi:

Like I would @DianaTaurasi in a 1 on 1 game of hoops, being the lead scorer in the @WNBA doesn’t impress me!! #duh. 😉 pic.twitter.com/QdPahwMCj1
How will Ellsworth fare when he has no choice but to battle Asuka?
