After two Triple Threat battles with all former Raw Women’s Champions on the Dec. 5 episode of Raw, Bayley and Alexa Bliss have earned a Raw Women’s Championship number one contendership match. They will face off next week with the winner going on to face the champion – Bianca Belair.
On this week’s Raw, Bayley won the first Triple Threat match after pinning Asuka off of the Rose Plant finisher. Also in the match was Rhea Ripley. A strong match between the three also had a post-match assault from Ripley to Asuka as she takes out her frustrations from her loss.
Prior to the match, Becky Lynch and Bayley exchanged words. Lynch came down from the crowd to join Bayley in the ring. With Lynch being in the main event in the second Triple Threat, she was hoping Bayley would win so they could face each other next week. As Ripley was heading to the ring, Lynch made her way to the back and the two exchanged a stare down that certainly gave fans something to look forward to at some point in the future.
The second women’s match was the main event with Lynch taking on Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss. Another lengthy match for the women ended with Damage CTRL’s IYO SKY and Dakota Kai interfering. They pulled Lynch out of the ring and eventually carried her over to the announce table to powerbomb her through it. This allowed Bliss to pick up to victory on Cross after delivering Twisted Bliss.
Earlier in the night when Bliss was getting ready for her match, the Bray Wyatt symbol showed up again on the TV screen behind her for a second. During the Triple Threat, Bliss did exhibit some hints of turning back to Evil Bliss but it never fully committed. She did go for Sister Abigail on Lynch but the move was not executed.
After getting a big win against Dakota Kai last week, Candice LeRae was interviewed backstage. It was revealed that she will be facing IYO SKY next week. During the interview, for the second week in a row, Nikki Cross was spotted in the background spying on LeRae.
The Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair was interviewed backstage as well this week discussing who could potentially be her upcoming opponent.
