Bayley and Nikki Cross set for SmackDown Women’s Championship rematch
Bayley played puppet master to orchestrate her latest SmackDown Women’s Championship defense, but Nikki Cross will look to make her pay for trying to drive a wedge between her and Alexa Bliss. The rivals will meet in a rematch of their controversial title match at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules.
In the last showdown, Cross seemed on the cusp of a breakthrough, but an assist from Sasha Banks’ Boss rings helped Bayley retain her title with one crushing blow to the ribs. Last week on SmackDown, Bayley was in the giving spirit as she offered a title opportunity to the winner of an impromptu Cross vs. Bliss singles bout. The match created tension among the tag team partners, but Cross was fueled by her desire to get payback.
Will Cross finally topple Bayley from her throne above the blue brand? Or will it be another showcase for “The Golden Role Models”?
Naomi looks to send her own message in match against Lacey Evans
Fans have flocked to social media to support Naomi in recent weeks, and now she’ll have a chance to make a statement of her own. Naomi will face Lacey Evans in a hotly contested matchup between two of the blue brand’s best.
The Glow lit up “Miz TV” last week with an impassioned message for the WWE Universe and a sharp slap that left The Sassy Southern Belle disheveled and shocked. The rivalry started after Evans bitterly attacked Naomi following the Karaoke Showdown, and it hit another level after The Sassy Southern Belle tied Naomi’s hair to the ropes in the middle of a match.
Will Naomi start to change the narrative with a win? Or can Evans continue to frustrate her new rival?
