Bayley defends title against Asuka at WWE Clash of Champions

Bayley did end up wrestling on tonight’s Clash of Champions, but was met by her former tag team partner following the match.

WWE explained on tonight’s pre-show that Nikki Cross, Bayley’s original opponent, would be unable to compete on tonight. Bayley came out and after quickly opening and closing the door on a potential replacement, insisted her hand be raised as the winner.

Asuka, who earlier in the show defeated Zelina Vega to retain the Raw Women’s championship, came out and attacked Bayley, leading to a short SmackDown Women’s championship match. Asuka won the match by DQ after Bayley struck Asuka in the back with a chair.

Bayley went on to continue attacking Asuka after the bell when Sasha Banks, wearing a neckbrace, returned and attacked Bayley with a steel chair of her own. Bayley got the upper hand at one point, introducing a kendo stick. Banks fought back, but Bayley managed to escape before Banks could use a steel chair.

In addition to Cross, both Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax were out of tonight’s show. Their match against The Riott Squad did not go on as scheduled.
