The Horror Show at Extreme Rules is upon us and WWE have given us with two excellent matches. The first is Bayley defending her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Nikki Cross. The second is Asuka defending the RAW Women’s Championship against Sasha Banks.
Both matches have high stakes attached and feature four of the most entertaining wrestlers in the company. Expect two excellent matches from four amazing competitors.
Bayley vs. Nikki Cross for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
Bayley and Nikki Cross are no strangers to each other. Nikki Cross unsuccessfully challenged Bayley for the title way back in November 2019. More recently they have been clashing for the last couple months over the Women’s Tag Team Championships that reached its crescendo when Bayley and Banks defeated Bliss and Cross for the titles. But the animosity continued when Cross defeated Alexa Bliss, Dana Brooke and Lacey Evans in a Fatal 4-Way to become the number one contender and now heads into the Extreme Rules with a chance to capture the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Bayley has proven herself to be a formidable champion and defeated all that have stood in her way. But Cross is an unpredictable opponent due to her “manic” personality and “frenzied” in-ring style. So expect a highly intense affair with a strong possibility of interference from Bliss and Banks.
Asuka vs Sasha Banks for the RAW Women’s Championship
Sasha Banks is on a phenomenal run and comes into the match with all the momentum in the world. Asuka has also been on tremendous form and is always on her best whatever the opponent, whatever the circumstance. This is easily Asuka’s toughest challenge since capturing the title and a win over Banks would solidify and legitimise this title reign.
Asuka and Sasha Banks are two of the best to ever do it and the match is going to be fantastic no doubt about it. Can Sasha Banks become a double champion tonight or will Asuka prove that nobody is ready for her no matter how good they are?
