An improbable pairing, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax will be the opponents for Sasha Banks & Bayley‘s Women’s Tag Team Titles. This match will happen at Payback, and that takes place this coming Sunday on Aug. 30.
The Golden Role Models announced last week they would have to defend their tag titles at Payback but their opponents were never announced. The unique pairing of Baszler & Jax came from a match that took place between Bayley and Baszler.
Prior to that match, Jax was seen backstage as Sarah Schreiber was looking to interview her. Remember, Jax was suspended by attacking WWE official Pat Buck a few weeks ago. She explains she is no longer suspended as she apologized to Buck. Baszler runs into her and the two exchange some words. Jax tells her to give her a call or a text if she needs any help against Bayley.
Before the match begins, Jax makes her way out on the stage to watch. She would eventually get involved causing the match to stop. She attacks Baszler who was sent out of the ring. This causes Baszler to win via disqualification. The two then get into the ring and have a brief encounter as Jax gets some hits on The Queen of Spades.
The pair then realize that Bayley & Banks are a common enemy and they end up staring down the champs who were at the top of the ramp.
How will these two stay on the same page?
