Bayley has now been SmackDown Women’s Champion for 300-days and has defeating several opponents in that time frame. She is also a dual champion as both her and Sasha Banks are the Women’s Tag Team Champions. That’s not all, but with Banks holding the RAW Women’s Champion, the duo is dominating WWE.
Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon had to step in and rectify the situation of the unclear winner of the RAW Women’s Championship match from Extreme Rules. She put into action a foolproof plan to determine the rightful titleholder of the RAW brand. In that, Bayley and Banks found the loophole that cost Asuka the title as she had to race to her best friend Kairi Sane‘s aide after Bayley’s attack. This caused a count-out which McMahon had stated would still cause a title change in the stipulations.
This did not sit well with McMahon as she graced the big screen once again to deliver a message to the Golden Role Models on SmackDown. She explains that for SummerSlam, Banks will be defending her RAW Women’s Title. It may just be against Asuka if the Empress of Tomorrow can take out Bayley this Monday on RAW. As for Bayley, she too will be defending her SmackDown Women’s Title.
But who will be her opponent?
McMahon congratulated the duo on holding all the gold and that they have successfully made their way across all three brands. So as a result, she wants to help those that the duo have wronged by giving them a chance for some retribution.
Next week, there will be a Triple Brand Battle Royal that will include women from all three brands. The winner of that match will go on to SummerSlam and face Bayley for the SmackDown Women’s Title.
No names for the Battle Royal have been announced as of yet.
