There were many combustible elements in the match for the Women’s Tag Team Championships at Payback since both of the teams in this match were far from being on the same page.
Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler had only come together because of their hatred for the Golden Role Models, while Bayley and Sasha Banks have been hinting at a break up for a number of weeks.
Bayley was particularly harsh on SmackDown where she pointed out that The Boss was incapable of defending a Raw Championship since she has lost all five of her Championships at the first hurdle in the past.
Banks lost the Raw Women’s Championship back at SummerSlam against Asuka before the week took a further turn for the worst when she lost the Women’s Tag Team Championships to Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler earlier tonight.
The finish was innovative as The Submission Magician locked both Banks and Bayley in submission moves before using The Boss’s arm to further lock-in The Kirafuda Clutch.
Bayley tapped to the move and cost Banks her second title in a week and it could be argued that Bayley cost Banks her Raw Women’s Championship at SummerSlam as well.
This loss will now further fuel the split rumors for Banks and Bayley while it adds the interesting swerve that Baszler and Jax are now Women’s Tag Team Champions and will be forced to remain on the same page.
