Bayley ended up losing the RAW Women’s Championship to Alexa Bliss at Payback and it was a monumental moment for the challenger and red brand newcomer. She came into the champ’s hometown and took the title from her in front of friends and family.
On this week’s episode, the fallout from Payback began as Bliss took the time to have a coronation of sorts with all of the ladies from the brand in attendance. She went around and thanked most of them for helping her claim the title.
When she got to Bayley, she took a shot at her family in the audience and The Hugster had enough. She launched into an assault of the woman that took her title and then all the other female superstars in the ring took that as a cue to start duking it out too.
Later, A multi-tag match pitted Mickie James, Dana Brooke, Sasha Banks and Bayley against Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax, Emma and Alicia Fox. The match worked very well and each woman got a chance to shine at some point during the contest.
Near the end of the match, Nia Jax landed a strike on Bayley that ended up giving the former champ one huge gash. She later posted her wicked bruise on Instagram where fans couldn’t believe that they didn’t notice how beat up she got during the mayhem.
That wasn’t the only strike that she would end up taking either. Bliss managed to get her one-on-one and rake her in the eyes for a DDT. That manuever set up the win as the current champion would evade The Hugster once again.
She later said that despite the loss, she felt good on Twitter and she seems focused on teaching the current champion some humility sooner rather than later. It remains to be seen when that would happen though as the storylines for the RAW female division are still being worked out.
One possible outcome is that Bayley will have to deal with facing her best friend Sasha Banks later this year as it is rumoured that she will turn heel in the near future. The date with Bliss will always be something in the background of her mind going forward.
Alexa Bliss better watch out, because Bayley’s going to want to give out some punishment of her own next time.
