As a random pay-per-view thrown into the schedule, Payback will see the Women’s Tag Titles defended. With Sasha Banks and Bayley both holding all the gold just a week ago at SummerSlam, it would have been a lot to defend the tag titles as well.
The Golden Role Models may have lost a title with Banks no longer the RAW Women’s Champion but they still have the tag titles. At least for now.
The two best friends are often thick as thieves but the occasionally friction between the two has become more prevalent. As most recent as this past Friday Night SmackDown, Bayley was dishing out the insults to Banks. The fact that she can only hold a tag title and can never successfully defend the RAW Women’s Title didn’t sit well with The Boss.
Their opponents for tonight’s event aren’t exactly best friends themselves. Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler have both agreed they have a common enemy with The Golden Role Models and they both want the tag titles.
Can Jax & Baszler capitalize on the cracks between Banks & Bayley or will they not be able to keep their tempers at bay? Will we finally see the trigger pulled on Banks and Bayley’s highly anticipated rivalry?
Other than this one women’s match on the main card we will see Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan take on The IIconics on the Kickoff show. The winner of this match may just position themselves to go for the Women’s Tag Titles next.
