Reason Why WWE Booked Bayley Against Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross In 2-On-1 Handicap Match At Extreme Rules



Bayley will be defending her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross in a 2-on-1 Handicap match this Sunday at Extreme Rules.

A few weeks ago on SmackDown Live, Cross defeated Bayley in a non-title match to earn a title shot for her friend Alexa.

While fans were under the assumption that the title match at Extreme Rules would be a typical singles showdown, WWE swerved us all and changed the complexion of the match through genius booking on the latest edition of Monday Night RAW.

Dave Meltzer discussed the matter on Wrestling Observer Radio to reveal the reason behind WWE making the SmackDown Women’s Title defense a Handicap match at Extreme Rules.

“The handicap match was a late change and everything that happened this Tuesday without Alexa Bliss was because of her sinus infection and they re-wrote that whole storyline so they may have done an Alexa Bliss/Bayley beat the clock challenge, but the reason that made no sense was because the end result was because of Alexa Bliss’ condition they are going to do a handicap match to protect Alexa. So in doing that they had to come up with a reason and they had this beat the clock thing. So you know Nikki Cross had to win. Then even though Nikki Cross is a babyface she had to ask for the handicap match.”

Bliss is legitimately sick which is why WWE decided to make the last-minute change to the title match on Sunday.

If Nikki spends most of the match wrestling Bayley, then it would be a clear indication that The Goddess hasn’t fully recovered yet.

At this point, it’s safe to assume that The Hugger would be on the receiving end of a brutal beatdown this Sunday night, only to pave way for a blockbuster Sasha Banks return before SummerSlam.
