After her match against Nia Jax last week, there was much speculation as to whether Bayley would be able to compete at SummerSlam after suffering a shoulder injury.

As seen in the video above, WWE is now confirming that Bayley has been pulled from her Raw Women’s Title match against Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam after an evaluation revealed that Bayley has separated her shoulder. Despite this, Bayley will be on tonight’s Monday Night Raw to address the WWE Universe.

In addition, it has been announced that tonight’s Raw will feature two triple threat matches. The winner of those matches will square off next week to determine who will face Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam.

What do you think will happen on tonight’s Raw? Who do you think will go to face Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam? Let us know in the comments below!

  • I am hoping for Sasha vs Emma vs mickie and Nia vs Fox vs Dana. Unfortunately, Nia will probably squash both girls in a short and quick match. Also, there is something about Bayley’s injury that feels like a work.

    • Joseph

      I don’t see it as a work the match went to shit last week once Bayley got hurt.

  • Ollie Roche

    I don’t get it, Sasha won the gauntlet fair and square so this whole thing with Bayley shouldn’t have happend in the first place

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    Nia vs Mickie vs Dana and Sasha vs Emma vs Alicia winners = Nia and Sasha

    • BlaamLaambb

      yep

  • Nadia

    I’m praying that Nia and Sasha is in the same match. Have Sasha win. Have Emma win the other match. I WANT SASHA vs EMMA next week. Would be so Lit. Give us Sasha vs Alexa at Summerslam.

    • Sasha vs Emma or Sasha vs Mickie would both be great matches. Also they would both be first time match ups.

      • Nadia

        Would be awesome. I’m just not here for Sasha vs Nia at all. Pray for Sasha if that is the case.

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    Please have this be a work and Bayley turn heel on Sasha at SummerSlam and cost her the title I’ve been saying that should happen for months just do it WWE

    • Joseph

      They aren’t turning Bayley that would be stupid.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        It actually wouldn’t her popularity is going down by the week WWE can’t turn Sasha heel and still have bliss heel then the faces would never get cheered

        • Joseph

          Bayley as a heel doesn’t work everybody knows that. Sasha heel turn makes sense not Bayley.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            But if Sasha and Alexa are both heels and out pop all faces then how does that help any face out

          • Joseph

            Alexa would turn face.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Alexa is doing way to good as a heel to turn her anytime soon

          • Joseph

            You’re not gonna have both Alexa and Sasha as heels.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Exactly my point so keep in the same or turn Bayley

            Bliss is doing to good as a heel to turn her face especially since the rumor for months has been to turn Nia face

          • Joseph

            Turning Bayley is stupid and also Alexa is gonna turn face sooner or later she can’t be heel forever.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Bayley can’t be face forever either

          • Joseph

            Its Bayley.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            It’s Alexa Bliss as heel as well

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            If they can build Bayley back, her reactions will get back to where they used to which were MUCH bigger than Alexa’s and would rival Sasha’s. Regardless, I can give you multiple examples of Bayley getting cheered while working with Alexa and Sasha. Let’s not act it’s not possible to have both of them as heels. It all comes down if they can build others. Plus, they could bring up Asuka as well.

            There are always multiple possibilities but Bayley turning heel isn’t a good one at all. It all comes down to how much they are able to build their babyface. It’s all about the story and the execution.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Well we agree to disagree on this

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Fair enough.

  • Mary Donna Olade

    Summer Rae for champ

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Poor Bayley! Wish you the best and may this injury ends up being a blessing in disguise!

    Both matches better get at least 10 minutes! Now, as good as it is to give everyone a chance (which some of the girls should use to make a statement and my girl Emma, I am looking at you), if it’s just to have Sasha be the #1 contender, I don’t see the need of it all.

    Sasha should be the rightful #1 contender if Bayley is unable to compete and while it’s nice to see two matches with all the girls, in the end, it’s like, why all of this?

  • #RiotWithRuby

    Can we talk about the hotness that is Mike Rome for a sec? ?

    • Allyn

      I thought I was the only one who was feeling him lol?

    • Don ?

      Yeah he’s an attractive guy. Haha

  • Hoooshi

    For solid five minutes I thought someone would return because I could only count five women, and then I realized I forgot about Dana, that’s just how much WWE cares about all performers on their division.

    In a perfect world the match next week would be Emma vs Sasha, but watch it be Nia vs Sasha and Nia win (please prove me wrong WWE).

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Who were the five women you counted?
      At first I counted Dana, Nia, Sasha, Emma and Mickie and instantly thought about a Paige or Summer return but then I forgot about Alicia.

      • Hoooshi

        I counted Sasha, Nia, Emma, Mickie and Alicia and forgot about Dana, I was thinking Summer would return because I don’t think Paige is cleared yet, or is she?

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Well she’s training down at NXT so maybe she is.

          • Pause, Paige is training???

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            Yes she was seen down in Orlando like a week ago around the time when ADR got suspended

      • TorrieTrishStacyLita

        Same!! Lmao

    • TorrieTrishStacyLita

      Haha same. I actually forgot about Alicia and wondered who the 6th woman would be

  • Mark?

    Buh-Bye-Bayley. And another Bayley promo? They act like she can actually cut a good one. Keep it!

    • A One of a Kind Collectible

      This has been her dream since she as 7 Years old!

      • Mark?

        Yeah and my dream was to perform with Britney Spears. You don’t see me complaining.

        • A One of a Kind Collectible

          I was being sarcastic, keep aiming for that dream thou girl

          • Mark?

            Oh lol! ? And I will

      • What?!? You mean she was a FAN?!

        • A One of a Kind Collectible

          I literally had no idea! When Bayley’s ex childhood friend Tracey (whatever) mentioned it, during her This Is Your Life segment… I WAS SHOOK! Who knew?

          • This is almost as shocking as that time I found out Nattie was a Hart!

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Alexa should interrupt and drag her on the mic. I’d live cause we know Bayley can’t do anything about it since she’s injured

    • Joseph

      Rude

  • A One of a Kind Collectible

    I low key would love a twist, but we ALL know it’s going to be Nia vs Sasha AGAIN! But if I got to chose I would book it
    Sasha vs Nia vs Foxxy – Sasha win
    Mickie vs Emma vs Dana – Mickie Win

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    We need to see Emma vs Dana vs Mickie and Sasha vs Nia vs Alicia. Sasha vs Mickie next week sounds great! Mickie will finally be getting the reaction that she deserves. https://media.tenor.com/images/99db0d1daa08f9c167945613d5510291/tenor.gif

    • Hugo Banks

      Agree

    • Same idea I had lol

    • ???

      I hope it’s true omg , it’ll be sucks if the winners are Sasha and Nia
      Like Sasha deserves it but enough with Nia seriously

    • Jaded

      Mickie had her time, let the younger girls shine

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        Nah, male veterans get belts and good runs. Mickie should set an example for future female veterans.

        • FlawlessMickie ?

          Yas baby

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Yes she’s had her time but she’s also a legend. She shouldn’t be pushed aside like a jobber. You could still put on great and long matches and lose. But she gets short matches and lose like what’s the point?

    • Why two triple threats?

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        There will be two triple threats taking place tonight to determine the #1 contender. The winners clash next week. It’s been announced that it’s Mickie vs Dana vs Nia and Alicia vs Emma vs Sasha.

        • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

          Omfg literally everyone knows who is gonna win those matches???

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            Right. Hopefully Mickie gets to pin Dana as Nia continues to look strong.

    • Number One

      But Mickie always gets good reactions

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Where?

    • Christen

      I really hate how they are using Mickie. Show the girl some respect for crying out loud.

  • YASSS TWO TRIPLE THREAT MATCHES! Pretty sure that’s never happened before!

    I’ve always felt the women do really well in triple threats and fatal 4 ways. Not that they’re bad at singles matches or anything, but they always seem a bit more pumped up in these and pull out some really cool spots. PLEASE give them time to shine!

    I just really hope they’re not gonna give us Sasha Vs. Nia next week. I’m sick of that. I want Sasha Vs. Emma, or just ANYTHING other than Sasha/Nia. PLEASE ???

    • A One of a Kind Collectible

      Girl don’t say that, this is Raw. You know they will probably remind us ‘THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY____’

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Well it would be tho

    • ???

      Omg me too so sick of Nia , we desperately need Sasha vs Emma or Sasha vs Mickie

  • Organization XIII

    If the winners of each match are Sasha & Nia. They can keep it

  • Mark?

    Oh my God they should have a backstage segment with Nia and Alexa. “You told me if I take out Bayley last Monday on Raw that you would give me a shot at the Women’s Chanpionship! I did my part now do yours!” Then the GM interupts and says “hold on there just yet Nia. You don’t make the rules around here. You don’t get a title match without earning it. So tonight it’ll be Nia Jax versus…. Mickie James. Winner will face Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Chanoionship at SummerSlam. Peace.”

    Then queen Mickie wins due to a distraction from Sasha. Holler

  • BlaamLaambb

    let me guess, they gonna have sasha vs nia and then have sasha win so she could advance to summerslam

  • Matt J

    Is Foxy still injured ? Because she hasn’t wrestled since Extreme Rules and has been sidelined due to a neck injury, so maybe there is still hope for a return ?

    • A “Neck injury” is just code for we dnt know what to do with u lol

      • Organization XIII

        lmfaoooo don’t say this

        • I’m lying?! Lol

          • Organization XIII

            I won’t dignify this lol

      • Don ?

        ??

  • Can’t wait! Raw will be in Boston next week so it will be that much sweeter to see Nia win. #TeamNia #JaxJungle

    • Darryl lee

      You know she ain’t winning right? And you know what? Doing nia vs bliss for summerslam is dumb. Putting the belt on her would be even dumber.

    • HBIC

      Keep it

      • They’ll keep Sasha winning again, get ready for the hometown loss!

        • Darryl lee

          Well, get ready for a boring match at summerslam. Because if nia wins, they’re clueless.

          • I been ready.. for y’all tears

        • GOD STRATUS•

          Your such a hater like … Seriously. & For the record I hope Sasha doesn’t get included so your girls can legit bomb… Smh

          • I’m just saying what they’d do. Don’t act like they wouldn’t have Sasha make someone else look good in her hometown in favor of that person getting heat, cough Nia cough.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            But don’t act like she deserves this shit treatment… That’s B’s your pretty much saying Sasha deserves shit … Screw Nia cough cough she injured bayely she needs no reward let alone the gift being going over Sasha in Boston what’s wrong with you

          • I’m assuming you have reading comprehension problems. If Sasha loses next week don’t say I didn’t tell ya. That’s all.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            And in assuming you have comprehension problems … Your laughing and mocking at Sasha’s booking using it as fuel against her fans …? Your petty saying Nia deserves to go over Sasha in Boston … Just petty

          • Again, it’s what WWE would do. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit.

          • Joseph

            And its in Brooklyn and the NYC crowd will shit all over Alexa vs. Nia.

          • GOD STRATUS•

            Let’s hope so

          • We will drag MF’ers here in the big apple

  • George

    Wow way to go raw, i was expecting a boring ass sasha banks promo to challenge Alexa but this is totally exciting and worth watching yeees https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bdbbd1d1b7eebb7d8204865285c768100c009386ac2396e0d5fb96db1baedf79.gif

  • HBIC

    This is the best thing ever I mean poor Bayley but the other women need a chance and with her out of the way is perfect, I hope we see Sasha vs Emma/Mickie next week I don’t want to see Sasha vs Nia again uggh

    • Joseph

      We know Sasha is winning this.

    • ???

      Agreeeeeeeeeee

  • Gato_wiska

    I hope Summer will finally get used.

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Oh good …. Happy Raw??. ..

    Good that she’s pulled …. Officially.

    • Joseph

      You guys are mean.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        God Stratus is a know d**k don’t pay attention to him/her

        • GOD STRATUS•

          Im a ” ( no dick)? ” … Lol & your a dumb fuck so we’re even ??

      • GOD STRATUS•

        I mean it with love. This is bullshit Sasha has to go thru so many hoops all the time to get her rightful booking thassit…. We LOVE BAYELY

    • Allyn

      You were the first person I thought of when I read the headline ?

  • Allyn

    We all know it’s going to come down to just Sasha and nia, this is exactly why they need to build up the WHOLE Division instead of just select few. We all know the outcome unless they somehow get their heads out of their asses and give us soemthing new….but that’s just asking for too much of raw. So Just go ahead and give it to Sasha already and lets see what she can do with a proper reign, lets see if she can “save” it

    • Preach ?

    • Hoooshi

      This site would explode if Emma was the number one contender, and then would find something to complain about the next day.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        We’d embrace it… On behalf of the SashaKrew .. we love Emma

      • Allyn

        Fact! Lol

      • Well emma vs Alexa would not work for SS. They don’t have a history and it would be no time to build one. Mickie vs Alexa could work but they don’t have much chemistry in the ring.

        • George

          You can’t build something without even starting lol ;)

        • ???

          Only Sasha vs Alexa will work for SS , but please no more Sasha vs Nia pleaaase

      • You KNOW how they are

      • Organization XIII

        I would LIVE if she won!

        • Lushluke

          And the crowd would be DEAD

          • Organization XIII

            Are you the Brooklyn crowd?

          • Lushluke

            No just common sense

          • Organization XIII

            Don’t sound common to me

      • ???

        If Emma won I’ll not complain , at least myself

      • Jaded

        Emma sadly hasn’t been built up enough to be credible

    • George

      Let’s hope for something fresh for once haha….

      • Allyn

        I keep hoping….week after week ?

        • George

          the feels girl :(

  • Kiana Taylor
  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Nia winning both matches and squashing Alexa at SummerSlam would be funny. I see she’s snaking her way to a SummerSlam match. THE TRUE SCAMMER!

  • Lushluke

    Nia Emma Mickie and Sasha Alicia Dana?? Sasha and Nia winning and Nia winning next week as they seem to keep putting off Sasha. I still don’t think this is real injury and it’s all storyline

    • Darryl lee

      Bayley is legit hurt dude.

    • Hugo Banks

      It’s a storyline.

      • Lushluke

        They see how badly internet reacted with bayley beating Sasha so have done fake injury storyline to re do the mistake

  • #TearTheWeavesDownFromTheSky

    This might be a blessing in disguise for Bayley. She’s become so stale so a future return would fix that. We’re also getting two women’s matches tonight :D I assume it’ll be Sasha in one and Nia in the other however but would love for it to be Sasha and Emma to come out. I don’t want Mickie to win simply because her matches with Alexa are always really bad

  • Hugo Banks

    It’s time for Sasha to shine. She’s the better performer, storyteller, the most merchadise seller, the most popular woman in both divisions AND BROOKLYN LOVES HER. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/06de132004f7df209dd20fdecd63c92589115a12be419dcab4d5fd3421578555.gif

    • Jaded

      No she is not.

      • Hugo Banks

        Yes, she is. You can read it a lot of pages praising her for the merchadise that she sells and her matches are highly rated.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        She’s the most over woman in the company boo. No refute

    • wwepassion

      She’s not the most popular anymore and she already had her billions of shine. She is the best opponent at this point for Alexa.

    • wwepassion

      She also doesn’t sell the most merch because last time I checked the Bella’s are still at the top and she was second.

      • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

        Where’s the list?

  • George

    Queen Summer attacks dana and snatch her spot in the match and save us from raw bad booking yeees #SummerRaeForChamp https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c0905a8e04a21f6c88abc11a2ec3519df879426d3adad4d2ce45e20c1bda7a65.gif

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Scream keep it Dana needs her time to shine

      • George

        True. More heat attacking Sasha to snatch her spot from the match yeees #SummerRaeForChamp

        • GOD STRATUS•

          Not gonna happen CHRISTY

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    This is not a work. Bayley was legit hurt last week and she’s out for 3 months. I don’t think that’ll have a “work” for that long. One month is all you need if it’s a work. But this could be great for Bayley she needs this time off. Once she returns, people will want her to win the title again and she’s gonna be the Bayley most people loved (not me but yeah).

  • This is the reason why you have to have more than 2 stars with some star power. Injuries are prone to happen
    I hope Mickie and Sasha face off next week cause I wanna see a match between the 2

    • Hugo Banks

      Me too. Or Sasha vs Emma for the first time ever.

      • The possibilities are great. I need it.

    • ???

      I’m afraid it’ll Sasha vs Nia for the 10000000x time, I don’t want it omg

      • I swear I’ll be one of the people on here complaining tonight on here if that happens.

        • ???

          You know what worse than Sasha vs Nia ?
          Imagine IF NIA ACTUALLY WON THE MATCH AND GOES TO SS I’ll be really pissed

          • I will be so shook. The inconsistency of sasha and Alexa would be annnnnnoying like she walked out in their match lol

  • Lushluke

    I know it won’t happen but Paige return tonight ?

  • Organization XIII
    • George

      Bless you

      • Lushluke

        Coming for scraps not scalps

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      I would love them to capitalize on the “opportunity” thing with Emma. I would love both Emma and Sasha win with Emma winning the first match and Sasha the second one and then Emma viciously attacks Sasha in the end to make a statement. A passionate Emma promo about her “opportunity” would be a nice touch as well!

      • Organization XIII

        BINGO!

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Much better.

      • Don ?

        Exactly! But an idea like that is rocket science to the creative team. ?

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Shame

      Shame

      Shame

      • Organization XIII

        LMFAO I want Sasha to snatch the title but I really want to see Emma against Sasha. I’m tired of Nia vs Sasha

    I want Sasha to win , but NOT NIA PLEASE
    I want like this ~
    Sasha vs Nia vs Alicia (Winner : Sasha)
    Emma vs Dana vs Mickie (Winner: either Emma or Mickie)
    But we may get Sasha vs Nia for 1000000xth time sadly

    • Jaded

      Bayley’s injury is something good?

      • ???

        WTF?? I didn’t mention Bayley’s injury I was just happy that we will get triple threat match .. it was obvious
        I’m sad for Bayley I hope she’ll get better and not effect her career , but damn if we got her against Alexa for the 100000x it’ll be boring and they don’t have chemistry

      • Hayley’s injury is a work.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Safe win Sasha!
    Who I really want to win Mickie!

  • Hugo Banks

    I can see Sasha going over tonight and hopefully it’s going to be Sasha vs Emma or Sasha vs Mickie. Sasha wins next week while putting over Emma or Mickie in a incredible match. Because it’s in Boston, I mean… BoSSton. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/de7684d76283260be2c426faeef73e07d5c6539fd4e39165d0309fd98fbfe5a0.gif

    • Jaded

      Sasha or Nia will go to summerslam

      • Hugo Banks

        It will be Sasha. Because she’s the only one with Bayley and Charlotte who has story with the Brooklyn crowd.

  • Oh, shit! I thought they were just playing! I hope she gets better soon. So are we gonna see another gauntlet? A “Superstar” battle royal? A fatal (insert number here) elimination match?

  • A One of a Kind Collectible

    Hearing that Raw is in Boston next week has me nervous, NOBODY wins in their hometown, unless it’s a house show. I swear if Nia goes to Summer Slam I will be over Raw OFFICIALLY

      • A One of a Kind Collectible

        True Naomi did break the curse. I mean even Charlotte lost in ‘Flair Country, and what I will always remember is Nattie losing a match, in her hometown ON HER BIRTHDAY! Hopefully Sasha can break it too

        • They are so shady to Nattie. She’s put up with a lot of crap. I’m glad she’s finally getting her chance.

        • Damn! On her birthday!? Damn!

    In a perfect world, Emma and Mickie would win but realistically its most likely going to be Sasha and Nia.

  • Dylan Gutierrez

    Every week is another number one contender’s match. Lord.

  • Ken Lushh

    Sasha vs Emma next week! The Iconic girls debut and help Emma win! WWE version of the Dollhouse commences!

    • That would AMAZE. The Iconic Duo aren’t really doing at NXT, may as well give them something else to do

    • Iconic need to go to SD! Dana can help Emma!

    • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

      Yes, LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS IDEA.

      Especially if post match the iconic duo put Sasha through the announce table like they did to Nikki at Takeover.

      My edges are crawling away just thinking of a mashup of Emma and Billie’s themes

  • But we really getting 2 matches when on a weekly https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c5891208882863daa85cca1ccd095950060d832ff1e1756a7088bd51e5268f7a.gif they can barely give us 1

    • Hugo Banks

      Same

  • ???

    OMG MARK MY WORDS
    1- The winners of these matches will be Sasha and Nia ..
    2- SASHA AND NIA WILL NOT BE IN THE SAME NUMBER ONE CONTENDER MATCH SO THEY BE SEPARATE AND WIN IN THEIR RESPECTIVE MATCHES TO FACE OFF NEXT WEEK .
    3 – Next week is on Sasha’s hometown , so it’s likely that Nia will win .

    It’s sucks and I HATE IT but it’s the truth ???
    I want Sasha vs Mickie/Emma and then Sasha win and goes to SS and win her 4th title reign but ….

    • Hugo Banks

      Me too darling.

  • StraightUpBitch

    I love Bayley but thank fuck! Hopefully WWE do the unexpected and have Mickie or Emma win one of the matches and have them face Sasha in a match next week that’ll surely be a match of the year candidate, but knowing WWE ‘Queen’ Nia will be end up being the number 1 contender and have another woman she can cause injury to.

    • Don ?

      I agree. Depending on how tonight goes, Bayley’s injury will have been a blessing in disguise for herself and the RAW women’s division.

  • Monkey Tennis

    That’s a shame. I mean, I wasn’t super-hyped for the match but with WWE’s booking of the women recently, it’s hard to get especially hyped over anything. But with only a few weeks to go before Summerslam, what little build up we did have for the Women’s Title match has now gone right back to square one.

    And what are our other options. Sasha? On paper, she’s obviously the best option but that’s more to do with the absence of other realistic choices right now. Don’t get me wrong, she’s a fantastic wrestler but a feud (such that it can be in a few weeks anyway) with Alexa is a harder sell than Bayley because Sasha is kinda similar to Alexa. Not in terms of ring ability, no, but just in relation to their personas… I suppose they could build up the idea of Alexa being a ‘dark reflection’ of Sasha, kind of a reminder of how she once was and could be again. But that’s probably expecting a bit much from creative.

    Aside from Sasha though, who is there? Emma would be great but she’s a heel and a turn now would just be too random. Likewise, a heel vs heel match at Summerslam seems unlikely… which rules out Nia too – hopefully, in her case. She’s still not ready to be challenging for titles and even if she did go into the match as a tweener, the balance would all be wrong cos you can’t have your heel champion as the brave underdog.

    Mickie? Maybe, but they’ve done so little with her since she returned, again this would feel too rushed. And Dana? Nah.

    The more I think about it, despite her recent awful booking, Bayley probably was the best choice to be taking on Alexa at Summerslam. Now we’re likely going to get something with just as little effort put into it but at even shorter notice.

  • Hugo Banks
  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    two triple threat matches? I’m surprised. Sometimes RAW gives something good, like that Gauntlet match. Hope this deliver! Mickie should be winning one of them. The other should be by Sasha.

    • Don ?

      I would love to see Mickie James vs Sasha Banks. Their interaction in the Triple Threat earlier this summer was exciting.

      • Hugo Banks

        Yes it was.

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        Agree but that’s just hope. Nia will win one and Sasha will win the second. Next week we get another Nia vs Sasha. I highly doub RAW is going to pull a surprise winner. If they do, that winner won’t be going to SummerSlam.

  • MK126

    Damn… I planned on skipping RAW again this week to enjoy my 2 hours of ratchet tv but this has me slightly intrigued. Im sure we’ll see Nia vs Sasha next week. WWE loves making people lose in their hometown and Sasha has already lost in Boston before (HIAC if I remember correctly) so I wouldn’t be surprised to see Nia vs Bliss at SS. It would suck because BK would literally boo them out of them building which no one really deserves but if that’s the route WWE wants to go… itll prolly be the worst match on the card

    • Hugo Banks

      I agree with you. The only thing that can save the RAW Women’s division is this… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b400ab16dca24a1f68c9f093c159b0ba0218a11152fe239630e6a968697b9b32.gif

      • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

        It’s not the only thing, the only thing that will save the Raw division is them actually using all of their women instead of the same four in the same cycle.

      • MK126

        Only if its a long reign! I like it when shes like “Im a 3x womens champion” cause like girl you lost the title 3 times to the same bitch like less than a month from each other. Her 3 reigns mean absolute shit lol

  • DayOneISH!

    I wanna see Emma vs Dana vs Nia with Emma getting the upset win.And then Sasha vs Mickie vs Alicia with Sasha obviously getting the win.I dont want Nia vs Sasha again let’s see Emma vs Sasha next week!

  • Diva_Fan

    I suspect it’s going to be between Nia and Sasha but I kind of hope Sasha and Nia are in the same triple threat with only one of them advancing and facing Mickie next week !

    • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

      Yes Mickie or Emma desperately need a rub and be brought to the forefront of the Raw Women’s division.

  • ????é? ?

    I prefer Emma vs Alicia/Mickie for next week. I know it sounds crazy, but u guys need to give them a chance.
    http://rosa-mendes.com/media/albums/userpics/10001/BJ6VSgI.gif

    • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

      Not crazy, real fans know its about building different feuds not the same borefest

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      This is SummerSlam… not superstars.

      • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

        Mickie unanimously regarded as one of the GOAT.

        Alicia the best at selling and giving Nia the rub that many couldn’t.

        And Emma who was 1/2 of putting NXT on the map.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          “Alicia the best at selling and giving Nia the rub that many couldn’t.” You saying that as if it was an accomplissement… LOL.

          All these girls have no momentum and have been barely featured. For such a show, none of these girls should get a singles match with Alexa. Let’s not joke arround, I have nothing against these girls but none should be against Alexa at SummerSlam.

          • ????é? ?

            Why not? Emma vs Alexa sounds pretty good to me.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Not for SummerSlam, without any kind of build up. I love Emma and I would for her to win tonight and be involved next week but not at SummerSlam. It’s just not good enough.

          • Nadia

            You want to run a heel vs heel match with no build in a dvision that is already struggling to get reactions? This is why WWE doesn’t listen to fans.

          • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

            Au Revoir cretin

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Google traduction, I see. Fair enough.

        • ThePeaceVibe.

          That’s incredibly sad, but true..

  • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

    I’m here for a Dollhouse-esque stable of Emma, Billie and Peyton with them debuting and helping Emma get the title.

    • Typical Heel

      Me too asf! ??????????

  • Monkey Tennis

    Hang on. I just read that part about the triple threat matches. So tonight, we’re only going to establish the two joint ‘Number Two’ contenders for the title. And the actual Number One contender won’t be established until next week’s RAW… which is the last RAW before Summerslam!

    So basically our build up to the women’s title match at one of the biggest PPV’s of the year is likely gonna be a staredown between next week’s winner and Alexa. And that’ll be it.

    • If Sasha wins then the build up would not matter. Sasha and Alexa have unfinished business and a ton of history/tension between them.

      • Hugo Banks

        I think so too.

    • Hoooshi

      That’s what happens when you only focus on the same people and have no plan B.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Technically, Sasha Banks is what you would call a plan B tho but I see what you mean.

  • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

    And FYI ladies and gentleman,

    What and Emma and Mickie did 2 weeks ago on Main Event topped any match on Raw in the last 2 months.

    You can’t argue with results

  • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

    Sorry I don’t want Sasha to win unless a heel turn is imminent.

    Sasha’s enunciation is terrible and I can’t sit through her circlejerking the women’s revolution week after week.

    She’s a good wrestler, but heel Sasha is the only Sasha I’m interested in

    • GOD STRATUS•

      With Maria Kane….don’t care … Your thoughts on Sasha won’t be missed.

      • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

        Maria can still talk circles around Sasha

        • GOD STRATUS•

          The circle being her wedding band … No one givesAF?

          • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

            You haven’t seen her work on the indies, once again showing that if you had one original thought let alone commented without using emojis the world would rip in half under the shock

          • GOD STRATUS•

            ” work ” being something I’ve never seen from Maria kan…t wrestle less ….. Furthermore I’ll let your knowledge or lack thereof of what it means to wrestle be a testament as to the merit of your position… Also dear I’ll allow your assuming of what someone else does with their time be a testament to your character …. Anything else take it up with Mike kan…..t give a dam

  • Troy Rochester

    Mess I was going to skip RAW tonight and get an early night because I thought it would be boring trash ….

  • ????é? ?

    Those 4H stans.. damn gurls! Catering girls need to shine too. Summer is tired of eating pizza at home.

    • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

      4HW only want a women’s revolution if the 4HW are at the front

  • OJ Von Erich

    I’m bored of Sasha being in this constant spotlight (even if she is one of the best Raw performers in ring & on the mic) Nia doesn’t need this just yet, let Emma, Alicia, Mickie or Dana shine, they’re so misused on the main show.

    Or better yet, have Summer or Paige steal the show!

    • GOD STRATUS•

      To what end ? The fans have to care at SummerSlam. Paige ? Really you want Paige & summer out of no where shot to the top? One’s a pornstar and the other can’t get out of the Hamptons

      • DayOneISH!

        They need to do something with summer.She can pick up trash after the show is over she needs to do something on raw.

        • GOD STRATUS•

          Champion ain’t it. Im tired of non wrestling girls getting ring time like they can .

      • ????é? ?

        So Saraya is already a PornHub worker… right?

        • GOD STRATUS•

          Im guessing girl I dunno don’t wanna see it on my TV

  • ???

    The question is ..
    If WWE SO desperately want Sasha vs Nia next week , why they make all of these matches ?
    They could just let these two fight and without involving others and makes the likes of Mickie and Emma look stupid and weak.

  • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

    I honestly hope when the Bellas come back Nikki goes to Raw and Brie goes to Smackdown so I can see the 4HW stans pressed as the Bellas steal the spotlight.

  • Don ?

    Off topic but Mike Rome is so adorable to me. ?

  • OMG yes at WWE using more than just Sasha and Nia in the contender’s match. Even if it ends up being Nia vs.Sasha in the finals.

    I feel like we might see a return tonight. I don’t know if you guys noticed but Alicia Fox has not been in action since Extreme Rules. Before that she usually wrestled on Live Events so I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s injured.

    • Lushluke

      Think it would be summer over Paige if anyone returned

    • She’s in Toronto so get ready for some Foxy in action.

    • ???

      Ok I’ll be fine with Sasha vs Nia but what will piss me off ? If Nia wins and goes to SS it will be STUPID like hello ALEXA VS NIA AT SS ???? ARE THEY KIDDING ME

  • Some people here are really funny. “Why should Emma, Mickie, Alicia… face Alexa, no one would react to it?”.

    Which is the point we’re making. Raw doesn’t build up anyone else so any match that DOESN’T include Sasha or Bayley is seen as an afterthought. That’s why it’s important to have ALL women ready to jump in at any event and make it a believable storyline.

    Imagine Sasha gets injured tonight, who are they gonna run to then and make the fans care? Can’t always rely on the two people so hopefully the Raw writers open their eyes about it.

    • ????é? ?

      Preach!!

    • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

      We need the old DD users back, I can’t stand this new lot who are quite frankly inept.

    • Exactly! When Lita got injured in 2002 there were five others girls WWE could pushed instead of her.

    • Lushluke

      They would bring someone up from NXT ?

      • Asuka most definitely

    • Lushluke

      It’s also like saying every guy gets reaction or buildup cus they don’t. TBH they could do with getting rid of like 4 current women and bringing up new girls to freshen it up

      • they sure don’t without buildup, that’s for sure. they need girls, they can’t afford losing anyone, especially when they don’t use half of what they have.

    • Jesus’s brother

      If Sasha gets injured tonight they will be going for Nia vs Alexa

      • Obviously, a heel vs heel, with no face alternatives. Sad huh

        • Jesus’s brother

          Someone would turn face, it would be Nia

          • ThePeaceVibe.

            True but I don’t see the crowd cheering Nia over Alexa especially since they will boo her for getting the rub over Sasha.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            I wouldn’t be so sure. I think fans could be quite exited about Nia LITERALLY squashing Alexa. Every time they have interacted as opponents, fans reacted especially in the fatal 4 way between Alexa, Nia, Sasha and Mickie. Now, that doesn’t mean Alexa would turn face at all or that Nia would turn face. Nia would be the tweener in this situation but get back fully heel after that.

          • Not after she has injured Bayley

          • Jesus’s brother

            It would be like Laycool vs Beth where Beth turned face despite being bigger. Alexa would run from Nia using heel moves (Eve vs Kailtyn matches) Nia would create sympathy with the crowd

          • Match wise yes, but I don’t think either would instantly turn, because there’s no time for that. If it turned in a feud, then yes.

  • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

    Not only has DD writing and the site in general gone to shit so have the users.

          The golden era being when Trish was active correct ? Cos if not we have nothing to discuss my dear once Melina started getting shit booking all of the REAL og fans left WWE and came back when the wrestling did… Your coveted divas era in which Kelly Kelly was the beez… I wouldn’t call that… Glorious by any stretch of the imagination

  • George

    it’s true about Bayley’s leaked pictures? omg

    • ????é? ?

      Where did you see that?

      • George

        Supposedly someone leak bayley’s nudes

      • George

        Facebook, people are talking about that in one spanish page that’s why i’m asking

        • ????é? ?

          I don’t see Bayley doing that. I guess.

          • George

            someone just post a picture and kinda looks like her but i’m not sure.

    • ???

      What pictures?

  • Jonny

    Omg PLEASE let Emma win one of them, I’m begging them. Even if she doesn’t go on to SS at least give her some credibility WWE!

  • Tenzen

    Just seen this in Wrestlezone:
    “According to PWInsider.com, Paul Heyman will be appearing on a MizTV segment on WWE Raw tonight in Toronto.

    As noted, two Triple Threat matches will take place on Raw tonight to
    determine the new #1 contender to Alexa Bliss at WWE SummerSlam, after
    WWE announced Bayley will be unable to compete due to injury.

    The two Triple Threats will be Nia Jax vs. Mickie James vs. Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox vs. Emma vs. Sasha Banks.”

    So it seems we are having Nia vs Sasha next week zzzzz

    • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

      i hope mickie winss to be honest

      • Tenzen

        Me too. Sasha vs Mickie would be a fun match next week; it could be a great way to re-insert Mickie as a strong competitor, as well as legitimizing Sasha as #1 contender.

    • Jonny

      Oh for God’s sake, same old thing! Emma needs to pull a shocker on Sasha and win.

    • George

      > Nia squashes dana and mickie in a 3 minutes match
      > Sasha wins by bank statement to emma
      zZZzzZZZZZ

      • Tenzen

        I’m pretty sure this might happen tonight, exactly like you described.. sad..

    • ???

      I TOLD YOU ALL

    • FlawlessMickie ?

      They should have put Nia and Sasha in the same match.. zzzz

  • Lol what’s up with you all dragging diva.dirt these days?

  • Kara Stevens

    It’ll most likely be Nia, Sasha, Mickie, Emma, Dana, Alicia tonight. But, it’d be nice if Paige returned. I’d love to see Mickie face Alexa at Wrestlemania. Mickie deserves more shine then, just being the resident jobber. I’m glad she won a match on main event. They just need to use her right. Why bring her back, to look so weak?

    • Jonny

      Wrestlezone has confirmed: The two Triple Threats will be Nia Jax vs. Mickie James vs. Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox vs. Emma vs. Sasha Banks.

  • 3???????

    So Sasha vs nia …again ?????

  • Jesus’s brother

    I hope it’s Dana vs Alicia

  • wwepassion

    Sorry for Bayley but it’s bitter sweet. It’s like it was a sign that Bayley vs Alexa was a bad idea, so obviously it’s Alexa vs Sasha.

  • Jesus’s brother

    Sasha should win at Summerslam!

    • Hugo Banks

      Yes, she should.

  • ThePeaceVibe.

    This is unfortunate for Bayley, but this is WWE’s time to give somebody else a chance. If the matches people named are correct then yawn. Even if Sasha ends up being the one to face Alexa at SS I feel like since everything was last minute she’ll lose anyway. I don’t think they want to pull the Nia vs Alexa match yet. I’d love to see Emma or Mickie get the chance but that would be too unpredictable. Alicia has been out of the division so much I don’t see it happening and Dana vs Alexa just doesn’t sound interesting currently.

  • Typical Heel

    Paige & Dana gets into an argument backstage, Emma instigates the whole thing, Dana throws the 1st punches to start it but Paige whoops Dana’s ass, gets to take her spot, wins the Raw Match, cuts a face pipebomb talking about letting the fans down and redeeming herself, goes onto the finals: Sasha vs Paige, Paige wins to enter Summerslam as a face against Alexa Bliss, and wins her 1st ever Women’s Championship, making her a 3 or 4 time champion on the main roster

    • ThePeaceVibe.

      I would actually love to see that.

    • George
    • Crazy. #RIPMae
      • C Mack

        Damn Dana has gotten hella big. She’s still pretty but I never thought about how different she used to look. And aww lol I remember Devin??

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      I actually like it but the pipebomb… less sure. I think she shouldn’t address what happened this year with her life overall. Don’t need to give them a reason to chant certain things…

    • Lushluke

      Girl can dream ?????

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Paige will be a heel slut character like Lita’s heel run upon/if WWE is so careless enough to have her back

      • Typical Heel

        ???????? I was just saying the character I felt
        Wwe may try with her, I however very much so want her to be a heel slut Lita character, and be like “yeah I fucked new day, and I’ll fuck each and every person in the locker room that I see fit” ?????

        • GOD STRATUS•

          Lmao!! Now THATS a heel lol I could get behind her honestly … With Sasha as Babyface ” brining honor & class ” back to the division …low-key she’s the only girl without ” nude leaks ” that’s reason enough for a Sasha campaign

          • Typical Heel

            BOOK IT! ??? I wish us fans created all of the storylines

  • Jesus’s brother

    Sasha will win and Nia will be angry with Alexa for not giving the championship match while she was champion.. Bayley stays injured and Sasha faces Emma, Mickie and a returning heel Paige and retains, Bayley returns at Royal Rumble (drawing the first place) and Bayley vs Sasha match at WM34 is made… meanwhile Sasha turns heel on bayley in March PPV

    What do u all think?

  • If this all culminates in Sasha vs Nia next week…keep it. We’ve seen that too many times. Give us something new. Mickie vs Sasha, Sasha vs emma, Nia vs Mickie…something we haven’t been tossed for months. If Sasha ultimately goes to SS, she most likely won’t win the title, this would be a filler title match. So why not give Mickie James a singles PPV title match to get her over. I’m just not here for this…Love you Alexa but…we need a new champion

  • James Shellie

    Regardless of if it’s a work or not, this is the best thing for Bayley’s career. This is very reminiscent of her comeback story from her hand injury in NXT that led her to the greatest matched of her career against Sasha. Get’s to play the underdog character that should have been in place since day 1 on the main roster

    Let’s just hope to God they put Sasha and Nia in the same triple threat tonight so we don’t have to see a rehash of that match next week

    • ???

      Sad news , it’s reported that Sasha and Nia will not be in the same match tonight.. so the shitty match that we saw like 100000x WILL happen next week .. this is sucks

  • ssilva872

    I want Mickie/Sasha but of course Sasha will beat Nia..

  • -V

    Thank God the shitty match won’t happen at Summerslam. Hopefully Sasha will win & go onto beat Alexa as well.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Whatever happens, Sasha and Nia will come out in top

  • A?.

    Nia vs Mickie vs Dana
    Alicia vs Sasha vs Emma. Those are the rumored matches, couldn’t make it more predictable. Another Sasha against Nia match next week, yay! Can’t wait. So fresh and exciting

  • Jesus’s brother

    Wtf is Danas finishing move, I forgot

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Is the Mickie T still Mickie’s finisher?

  • Jesus’s brother

    Summer Rae finishing move???? I don’t know what it is

  • MiguelAngl

    So next week is SASHA VS NIA… BORINGGG.????

  • Aye Mate

    Just clinging onto my rosary that Nia Jax isn’t ending up at Summerslam. Just all the no in the world to a Nia/Alexa showing.

  • Womensor

    It’d be cool if the matches were Sasha vs Dana vs Mickie and Alicia vs Nia vs Emma, and Sasha and Emma as the winners.
    Emma could pin Alicia, to have a minipush.
    At least we would have something different.

  • Womensor

    I would prefer a battle royal, but well done, like trish and lita’s days

  • Womensor

    And for SS results, I would like to see Alexa loosing the title against Sasha right before Bayley’s return, so that would end with Sasha turning heel when Bayley beat her with a great feud.
    Meanwhile, Alexa is furious and start a war with the rest of the roster (Emma, Mickie, Dana) and Nia with her. Or maybe putting her with a male like AJ Lee.

  • albert albie aldahawi

    It would only make sense now to have Nia win and go to summerslam. The story has lead up to her earning many title shots and she was suppose to get one from bliss and now she’s the one who “injured’ Bayley to take her sport. I mean as much as she doesn’t really deserve it so soon it makes more sense for her to win. I’d want Emma or Mickie TBH but that’ll never happen

  • FlawlessMickie ?

    two triple threats???? my body is ready. But we all know the singles match will be Nia vs Sasha.

    Alicia Fox is the most deserving of a title match, she did beat Sasha clean. It’s her time to shine. She got played out by having to lose to Paige in 2014 and she didn’t leave like Mickie or get fired. Emma ruined her chance when she sand bagged her Emmalina gimmick,i think we’ve all had enough of Sasha in the title scene. And nia injured Bailey surely she should be jobbing tonight. Alicia Fox should be the one going after Alexa. Like I said she pinned Sasha clean this year. So technically she’s above everyone else in pecking order. Just let Fox use her entire moveset to remind the fans how good she is.

    • FlawlessMickie ?

      Alicia vs Alexa would be cute for a Raw

    • Call Up Asuka NOW

      Um……… No

      I think people forget Alicia’s got a pretty extensive moveset, she sells well, she isn’t crap on the mic and isn’t prone to injury or giving injuries.

      While I do agree Alicia fox should be more involved, you’re acting as if the rest blow ass. They don’t, they’re good and capable of putting on a good show as well. One injury on nias book doesn’t mean she should job, tjag same logic was put on Alicia when she injured Beth, what happened after that? You’re being a hypocrite. Sasha and Alexa put on good matches with good reactions, Nia is just fine and even though Emma did flop her gimmick it just wasn’t for her, that doesn’t mean she should just be pushed behind. Alicia should be pushed just not yet, wait for this Alexa and Sasha feud to end so tjay Sasha can get the title, then that win on Sasha from Alicia can be used in a storyline.

    Anyone else think this is all a brilliant plan to turn Bayley into a heel and turn on Sasha next week/at SS?

    Say what you want about Bayley, the woman is a great in ring wrestler, and completely nails the starstruck fan persona (seriously, check out the promo skills challenges on Youtube from her NXT days). Her booking has been absolutely atrocious, of course the fans are going to start to turn on her, especially in a smarky city like Toronto.

    Then again, I am convinced we are actually going to see Alexa vs Nia at SS (like what was reported back in May).

  • Ew! Nia VS Sasha Again… I was expecting emma to win. She received a lot of hype last night.
