Bayley Is Out Of Her Women’s Title Match At Summerslam Due To A Shoulder Injury
While this seemed like an inevitability, you never want to see someone get injured, especially before a big title match at a major pay per view. Unfortunately that’s exactly what happened to Bayley last week, as she separated her shoulder in her match against Nia Jax and will not be able to compete against Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s title at Summerslam. The good news (for WWE) is that there are still two Raw’s before Summerslam, so we’ll get two triple threat matches tonight, with the winners facing each other for a shot at Bliss’s title at Summerslam. It’s going to be weird seeing six women competing on one Raw, since the only women we’ve seen lately are Nia Jax, Alexa Bliss, Bayley or Sasha Banks (I’m not counting that Emma/Nia squash). I have to imagine Sasha and Nia advance tonight to face each other next week, but I wouldn’t be mad if Emma squeaks out a win tonight either.
Make sure to check back on the site tomorrow morning, as we’ll have a full review of tonight’s Raw from Toronto!
