Bayley vs. Nikki Cross announced for WWE Raw


SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley will be in action on Monday's episode of Raw.

WWE has announced Bayley vs. Nikki Cross for Monday's show. It will be a non-title match.

Alexa Bliss will be in Cross' corner for the match.

Charlotte Flair appeared on A Moment of Bliss with Bliss and Cross on SmackDown this past Tuesday. Charlotte called herself the face of the SmackDown women's division and said Bayley is an afterthought. Bayley responded by saying being champion means she's better than Charlotte.

The Moment of Bliss segment led to Charlotte challenging Bayley to a title match at Clash of Champions. After accepting the challenge, Bayley pushed Charlotte off of her chair.

Cross & Bliss won the Women's Tag Team titles earlier this month.

The Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana is hosting Monday's Raw. The King of the Ring tournament will continue on the episode with Raw's last two first-round matches. Ricochet is facing Drew McIntyre, and The Miz is taking on Baron Corbin.

The winner of Ricochet vs. McIntyre will face Samoa Joe in the quarterfinals. The winner of Miz vs. Corbin will face Cedric Alexander.
