WWE announced on the Clash of Champions pre-show that Nikki Cross, Shayna Baszler, and Nia Jax aren't medically cleared to compete at tonight's PPV.
It was said that the status of the Women's Tag Team title match will be addressed on tomorrow's Raw. Bayley is in the building and will address the status of her match on tonight's PPV.
Two matches scheduled for tonight's Clash of Champions pay-per-view won't be taking place as originally planned.
Dave Meltzer has confirmed that Nikki Cross is off Clash of Champions. She was scheduled to challenge Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Championship tonight. Additionally, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax are off tonight’s pay-per-view. John Pollock of Post Wrestling first reported that the WWE Women’s Tag Team title match between champions Jax & Baszler against Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan would not be taking place.
Meltzer mentioned that it is possible that Bayley may defend the SmackDown Women's title tonight against someone else, but with both Jax and Baszler off, there won’t be a Women’s Tag Team title match.
Cross did not appear on Friday’s SmackDown show. She defeated Tamina, Lacey Evans, and Alexa Bliss in a fatal four-way match to become the number one contender on the September 11 edition of SmackDown.
The Riott Squad had defeated The IIconics to become the next challengers for the Women's Tag Team titles. Due to the stipulations of that match, Peyton Royce & Billie Kay had to break up as a tag team.
