Friday night’s edition of Smackdown included several NXT crossover surprises due to several main roster superstars being delayed in Saudi Arabia due to flight issues. One of those was NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler laying out Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley and her best bud, Sasha Banks.
All titles will be defended tomorrow night at Clash of Champions live on the WWE Network.
Bayley appeared to make an unexpected heel turn at the end of Raw Monday night.
Shane McMahon held a Smackdown Live town hall Tuesday night to allow the roster to air their grievances or gratitude.
Sunday night Bayley won the Money in the Bank Ladder match and then went on to also successfully cash in her contract against the newly crowned champ Charlotte Flair to win the Smackdown Women’s Title.
These eight women will meet tonight in this year’s women’s Money in the Bank Ladder match. (*This photo was taken prior to the announcement that Nikki Cross would be taking the place of Alexa Bliss.)
Some of the superstars moved to Smackdown Live last night as part of the Superstar Shakeup. More were announced online after the show.
